Line shapes of atomic lines and soft x-ray emission bands measured with a wavelength dispersive spectrometer (WDS) with the Electron Probe Micro Analyzer (EPMA) are reviewed. Least square fitting to pseudo-Voigt profiles of the digitally measured spectra are used to account for the presence of non-diagram features (high and low energy satellites) and(More)
The present investigation confirms that initially implemented procedure to produce poly(methylidene malonate 2.1.2) (PMM 2.1.2) nanoparticles (Lescure et al. Pharm Res 1994;11:1270-77) lead to products mostly containing plasticizing oligomers which strongly lowered glass-transition temperature (Tg), dramatically reduced nanoparticle consistency and rendered(More)
In this Letter, we demonstrate highly efficient, polarization-insensitive planar lenses (metalenses) at red, green, and blue wavelengths (λ = 660, 532, and 405 nm). Metalenses with numerical apertures (NA) of 0.85 and 0.6 and corresponding efficiencies as high as 60% and 90% are achieved. These metalenses are less than 600 nm-thick and can focus incident(More)
The viscoelastic properties of three classes of soft relining materials (acrylic resins, silicones, and EVA copolymers) were studied comparatively. Their behaviors were investigated by in vitro tests at a frequency omega = 1 Hz, which stimulates the masticatory cycle. The experimental parameter was the temperature (T). Black graphs giving the variations of(More)
Specimen preparation using abrasives results in surface and subsurface mechanical (stresses, strains), geometrical (roughness), chemical (contaminants, reaction products) and physical modifications (structure, texture, lattice defects). The mechanisms involved in polishing with abrasives are presented to illustrate the effects of surface topography, surface(More)
