The design and test of a multilaminate sheet developed for a hernia repair application is presented. As biomaterial applications become more complex, characterization of uniaxial properties becomes insufficient and biaxial testing becomes necessary. A measure of the in-plane biaxial strength of the device is inferred from a ball burst test. The results of(More)
The room temperature absorption spectra of water and its isotopomers D2O and HOD have been determined in absolute cross section units in the 125 to 145 nm wavelength region using synchrotron radiation. The experimental results for these B band spectra are compared with results from quantum mechanical calculations using accurate diabatic ab initio(More)
Cross sections for photoabsorption of NH 3 , NH 2 D, NHD 2 , and ND 3 in the spectral region 140Y220 nm were determined at $298 K using synchrotron radiation. Absorption spectra of NH 2 D and NHD 2 were deduced from spectra of mixtures of NH 3 and ND 3 , of which the equilibrium concentrations for all four isotopologues obey statistical distributions. Cross(More)
The photodissociation of gaseous molecular nitrogen has been investigated intensively, but the corresponding knowledge in a solid phase is lacking. Irradiation of pure solid nitrogen at 3 K with vacuum-ultraviolet light from a synchrotron produced infrared absorption lines of product l-N3 at 1657.8 and 1652.6 cm(-1). The threshold wavelength to generate(More)
A plasma system with a complementary filter to shield samples from damage during tetrafluoromethane (CF(4)) plasma treatment was proposed in order to incorporate fluorine atoms into gadolinium oxide nanocrystals (Gd(2)O(3)-NCs) for flash memory applications. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirmed that fluorine atoms were successfully introduced into the(More)
Cross sections for photoabsorption of NH3, NH2D, NHD2, and ND3 near 298 K were measured in the spectral range of 110-144 nm using radiation from a synchrotron. Absorption cross sections and oscillator strengths of NH3 agree satisfactorily with previous reports; those of ND3 are improved over those in a previous report, whereas those of NH2D and NHD2 are(More)
Various diamonds were analyzed with photoluminescence (PL) spectra excited with synchrotron radiation in the wavelength range 160-250 nm. The emission of type IaAB diamond begins near 300 nm and extends to 700 nm; two broad lines with maximums about 419 and 469 nm correspond to energies 2.96 and 2.64 eV, respectively. The spectral features observed in the(More)
Photoluminescence (PL) spectra of natural diamond powders of type IaAB at 300 and 13 K were excited with synchrotron radiation in the wavelength range of 150-260 nm. The spectral features observed in the excitation spectra at 13 K show four vibrational progressions related to nitrogen defects in diamond: A, B, B', and N3. Progression A has a spacing of 1258(More)
Rare-earth-activated BaY(2)Si(3)O(10) (BYSO) phosphors were synthesized via a solid-state reaction. BaY(2)Si(3)O(10):Ce(3+) yields an indigo-blue emission peak at 404 nm according to excitation at 334 nm attributed to the Ce(3+) 4f-->5d transition. BaY(2)Si(3)O(10):Tb(3+) typically generates green emission peaks resulting from the 5D4-->7FJ transition.(More)
