In this study, we report the unequivocal demonstration of midinfrared mode-locked pulses from quantum cascade lasers. The train of short pulses was generated by actively modulating the current and hence the gain of an edge-emitting quantum cascade laser (QCL). Pulses with duration of about 3 ps at full-width-at-half-maxima and energy of 0.5 pJ were(More)
Cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1B1 contributes to vascular smooth muscle cell growth and hypertension in male mice. This study was conducted to determine the contribution of CYP1B1 to the development of atherosclerosis and hypertension and associated pathogenesis in 8-week-old male apolipoprotein E-deficient (ApoE(-/-)/Cyp1b1(+/+)), and ApoE- and CYP1B1-deficient(More)
Stable trains of ultrashort light pulses with large instantaneous intensities from mode-locked lasers are key elements for many important applications such as generate short pulses in the mid-infrared (3.5-20 µm) molecular " fingerprint " region relies on the down-conversion of short-wavelength mode-locked lasers through nonlinear processes, such as optical(More)
Lipid abnormalities and dysregulation of the plasminogen activator (PA)/plasmin system may be involved in the development of glomerulosclerosis. We investigated the effects of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) on PA inhibitor-1 (PAI-1), urokinase-type PA (uPA), and tissue-type PA (tPA) in relationship to protein kinase C (PKC) in cultured human mesangial cells(More)
