BACKGROUND The increasing interest in combinatorial chemistry as a tool for the development of therapeutics has led to many new methods of creating molecular libraries of potential lead compounds. Current methods have made it possible to develop libraries of several million compounds. As a result, the limiting factor in the screening of libraries has become(More)
Kerr-lens mode-locked Kr-laser-pumped Cr:LiSGaF and Cr:LiSAF lasers containing only two newly developed low-loss chirped mirrors instead of conventional dielectric resonator mirrors and generating pulses of widths as small as 14-fs with as much as 100 mW of average output power are reported. We report what is to our knowledge the first experimental(More)
By means of capillary electrophoresis coupled online to electrospray ionization MS, a library of theoretically 171 disubstituted xanthene derivatives was analyzed. The method allowed the purity and makeup of the library to be determined: 160 of the expected compounds were found to be present, and 12 side-products were also detected in the mixture. Due to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Low-level light therapy (LLLT) has been revealed as a potential means to improve wound healing. So far, most studies are being performed with irradiation in the red to near-infrared spectra. Recently, we showed that blue light (470 nm) can significantly influence biological systems such as nitric oxide (NO) metabolism and is able to(More)
Sequences of picosecond pulses of 1.06-microm Nd:YAG laser radiation with a total energy of approximately 2 mJ are transmitted through a hollow-core photonic-crystal fiber with a core diameter of approximately 14 microm and are focused onto a tooth's surface in vitro to ablate dental tissue. The hollow-core photonic-crystal fiber is shown to support the(More)
Hollow-core photonic-crystal fibres (PCFs) for the delivery of high-fluence laser radiation capable of ablating tooth enamel are developed. Sequences of picosecond pulses of 1.06 microm Nd:YAG-laser radiation with a total energy of about 2 mJ are transmitted through a hollow-core photonic-crystal fibre with a core diameter of approximately 14 microm and are(More)
A model of molecular diversity is presented. The model, termed "Quantized Surface Complementarity Diversity" (QSCD), defines molecular diversity by measuring molecular complementarity to a fully enumerated set of theoretical target surfaces. Molecular diversity space is defined as the molecular complement to this set of enumerated surfaces. Using a set of(More)
An actively mode-locked, continuous-wave Nd:glass laser pumped by a krypton laser at 0.8 microm has been coupled to a nonlinear external resonator. The 20-psec pulses produced by active mode locking are shortened to less than 1 psec with the nonlinear external cavity feedback. Subpicosecond pulse generation has been achieved at a pump power as low as 500 mW.
