Infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) continues to be a major problem in the human population. There remains a specific requirement for HBV vaccines capable of circumventing the non-responder/inadequate responder status of some vaccinees. Hepacare has been primarily developed to (1) improve anti-SHBs antibody titres in low responders, to conventional(More)
At SRON we are studying the performance of a Goddard Space Flight Center single pixel TES microcalorimeter operated in an AC bias configuration. For x-ray photons at 6 keV the pixel shows an x-ray energy resolution E F W H M = 3.7 eV, which is about a factor 2 worse than the energy resolution observed in an identical DC-biased pixel. In order to better(More)
