A new portable measuring device for monitoring intraocular pressure with a non invasive system using a prototype of contact lens has been developed. The contact lens is based on a new organic flexible highly piezo-resisitive film sensor that is glued to the central hole of a lens. The measuring system is wire connected to the contact lens and incorporates(More)
PURPOSE To present the application of a new sensor based on a flexible, highly piezoresistive, nanocomposite, all-organic bilayer (BL) adapted to a contact lens (CL) for non-invasive monitoring intraocular pressure (IOP). METHODS A prototype of a sensing CL, adapted to a pig eyeball, was tested on different enucleated pig eyes. A rigid, gas-permeable CL(More)
BACKGROUND Up-to-date identification of local trends in sepsis incidence and outcomes is of considerable public health importance. The aim of our study was to estimate annual incidence rates and in-hospital mortality trends for hospitalized patients with sepsis in a European setting, while avoiding selection bias in relation to different complexity(More)
The energy-level alignment of molecular transistors can be controlled by external gating to move molecular orbitals with respect to the Fermi levels of the source and drain electrodes. Two-terminal molecular tunnelling junctions, however, lack a gate electrode and suffer from Fermi-level pinning, making it difficult to control the energy-level alignment of(More)
