The development of the Neutrino Ettore Majorana Observatory (NEMO$ 3) detector, which is now running in the Fre´jus Underground Laboratory (L.S.M. Laboratoire Souterrain de Modane), was begun more than ten years ago. The NEMO 3 detector uses a tracking-calorimeter technique in order to investigate double beta decay processes for several isotopes. The(More)
In infective endocarditis (IE), brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is helpful to diagnose clinically silent neurological events. We assessed the usefulness of systematic early brain MRI in IE diagnosis and medico-surgical management. Over a period of 1 year, all patients admitted in one of the three hospitals participating in and fulfilling the Duke(More)
We studied the influence of Mn doping on electromechanical properties of PZN-xPT with x = 7% and 9%. Single crystals oriented along the [111], [011] and [001] directions were poled by a "field cooling" process with an applied electric field of 1 kV/cm. It is shown that Mn doping has a significant influence on the single domain crystals in both cases. It(More)
0.93(PbZn/sub 1/3/Nb/sub 2/3/)-0.07PbTiO/sub 3/ single crystals with and without MnO/sub 2/ addition have been synthesised by the classical flux method. The structural transition temperatures have been investigated by X-ray diffraction and dielectric measurements. Mn doping was found to shift down the structural transition temperatures.
