Nonmelanoma skin cancers are the most common form of cancer. Continuous wave terahertz imaging has the potential to differentiate between nonmelanoma skin cancers and normal skin. Terahertz imaging is non-ionizing and offers a high sensitivity to water content. Contrast between cancerous and normal tissue in transmission mode has already been demonstrated(More)
To exploit the great potential of room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) as solvents that offer both low environmental impact and product selectivity, an understanding of the liquid structure, the microscopic dynamics, and the way in which the pertinent macroscopic properties, such as viscosity, thermal conductivity, ionic diffusion, and solvation dynamics(More)
Spores of Bacillus anthracis deposited on surfaces can become airborne again as a result of air currents and mechanical forces. As such, they are a potential source of infection by inhalation. Spores of Bacillus thuringiensis were used to quantify this phenomenon in a simulation of outdoor conditions. Concrete and turf surfaces were inoculated by aerosol to(More)
Airborne pesticides can be detected near to recently-treated arable fields for a period of days following the application. Identifying the source of such pesticides is important in developing predictive models for use in exposure and risk assessments. Previous work showed levels of pesticide in the air that were higher than expected for a(More)
