Significant changes in the management of fungaemia have occurred over the last decade with increased use of fluconazole prophylaxis, of empirical treatment and of echinocandins as first-line agents for documented disease. These changes may impact the epidemiology of fungaemia. We present nationwide data for Denmark from 2010 to 2011. A total of 1081(More)
We have fabricated strained Ge channel ptype metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (p-MOSFETs) on Si0.3Ge0.7 virtual substrates. The poor interface between silicon dioxide (SiO2) and the Ge channel was eliminated by capping the strained Ge layer with a relaxed, epitaxial silicon surface layer grown at 400oC. Ge p-MOSFETs fabricated from this(More)
Thogoto virus (THOV) is a tick-transmitted orthomyxovirus with a segmented, negative-stranded RNA genome. In this study, we investigated the coding strategy of RNA segment 6 and found that it contains 956 nucleotides and codes for the matrix (M) protein. The full-length cDNA contains a single, long reading frame that lacks a stop codon but has coding(More)
Space bound photovoltaics utilize crystalline III–V material systems to achieve extremely high conversion efficiencies. The measure of these devices is not ultimate conversion efficiency but specific power density, which can be limited by the bulky non-contributing substrates they must be epitaxially grown on. By replacing these substrates with thin(More)
With regard to the determination of the influence cf rlzutron irradiation on reactor components an analysis was p2rl'crmed on the'accuracies of neutron flux calculations and the spectral dependence of the displacement cross sections. The comzection between mechanical property changes and neutron irradiation is discussed too. A comparison between ca.1culated(More)
Despite the intensity with which many scholars have studied the evolution of Egyptian medicine, interdisciplinary studies on the history of headache are scarcely extant. Following a short discussion of historiographical issues, the main objective of this paper is to present a comprehensive and detailed overview on this subject. Scattered references to(More)
Many trends in the silicon industry could be interpreted as the herald of the end of traditional Si scaling. If this premise holds, future performance and system-on-chip applications may not be reached with conventional Si technology extensions. We review progress towards our vision that a larger crystal structure on Si, namely relaxed SiGe epitaxial(More)
