In order to examine HPG axis regulation in women with major depression, luteinizing hormone (LH) pulsativity was studied in 26 depressed and 24 normal women. Blood was sampled every 10 min for an 8-h period during the first week of their menstrual cycle. LH pulsatile release was analyzed using the computerized cluster analysis algorithm of Veldhuis and(More)
In an experiment performed at the GSI Fragment Sep-arator (FRS) in July 2001, the decay of 45 Fe has been investigated in order to establish whether it proceeds by simultaneous emission of two protons from the ground state, as suggested by theoretical predictions [1, 2], or by conventional β + decay. This extremely neutron-deficient nucleus was produced in(More)
a r t i c l e i n f o a b s t r a c t The complete three-body correlation pictures are experimentally reconstructed for the two-proton decays of the 6 Be and 45 Fe ground states. We are able to see qualitative similarities and differences between these decays. They demonstrate very good agreement with the predictions of a theoretical three-body cluster(More)
Executive Summary The research carried out in this project involves developing an understanding of the two-step zinc oxide water splitting thermochemical cycle to produce hydrogen. Step 1 of the process is carried out using a high temperature transport tube reactor to dissociate zinc oxide. The forward zinc oxide dissociation reaction has been shown to be(More)
Fine structure in proton emission from the 7/2 − [523] ground state and from the 1/2 + [411] isomer in deformed nucleus 141 Ho was studied by means of fusion-evaporation reactions and digital signal processing. Proton transitions to the first excited 2 + state in 140 Dy, with the branching ratio of I gs p (2 +)=0.9±0.2% and I m p (2 +)=1.7±0.5%, were(More)
The neutron-deficient nucleus 107 Sn has been studied by using the one-neutron knockout reaction. By measuring the decay γ rays and momentum distributions of reaction residues, the spins of the ground, 5/2 + , and first-excited, 7/2 + , states of 107 Sn have been assigned by comparisons to eikonal-model reaction calculations. Limits on the inclusive and(More)
The lifetimes of the first excited 2^{+} and 4^{+} states in ^{72}Ni were measured at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory with the recoil-distance Doppler-shift method, a model-independent probe to obtain the reduced transition probability. Excited states in ^{72}Ni were populated by the one-proton knockout reaction of an intermediate energy(More)
This paper reports NMR measurements of the magnetic dipole moments of two high-K isomers, the 37/2 − , 51.4 m, 2740 keV state in 177 Hf and the 8 − , 5.5 h, 1142 keV state in 180 Hf by the method of on-line nuclear orientation. Also included are results on the angular distributions of γ transitions in the decay of the 177 Hf isotope. These yield high(More)
Direct reaction techniques are powerful tools to study the single-particle nature of nuclei. Performing direct reactions on short-lived nuclei requires radioactive ion beams produced either via fragmentation or the Isotope Separation OnLine (ISOL) method. Some of the most interesting regions to study with direct reactions are close to the magic numbers(More)
