One of the most significant challenges implementing colloidal magnetic nanoparticles in medicine is the efficient heating of microliter quantities by applying a low frequency alternating magnetic field. The ultimate goal is to accomplish nonsurgically the treatment of millimeter size tumors. Here, we demonstrate the synthesis, characterization, and the in(More)
PURPOSE To correlate hepatic 1/T2 values obtained by means of a T2-Quantitative MRI (T2-QMRI) technique with three widely applied methods for the evaluation of hemosiderosis, i.e., (a) liver iron concentrations (LFeC) (b) serum ferritin (SF), and (c) histologic grading of siderosis. The impact of coexisting hepatitis was also considered. T2-QMRI(More)
Electron spins of molecular magnets are promising candidates for large scale quantum information processing because they exhibit a large number of low-lying excited states. In this paper X-band pulse electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy is used to determine the intrinsic relaxation times T1 and T2 of a molecular magnet with an S = 1/2 ground state,(More)
Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) was used to determine the pore size distribution of hardened Portland cement pastes. The method is based on the well-known freezing point depression of water when confined inside the pore matrix of a material. It is demonstrated how this technique can be applied in cementitious materials to probe the microstructure of the(More)
1 H NMR line-shape measurements have been performed in the linear chain molecule-based ferrimagnet ❅ MnTFPP★❅TCNE★➉xPhMe ⑦ TFPP✺tetrakis⑦4-fluorophenyl✦porphinato; TCNE✺tetracyanoethylene✦ as a function of temperature. Hyperfine shifts of opposite sign were observed indicating the presence of two oppositely hyperfine couplings, predominantly between the Mn(More)
Charge ordering phenomena in overdoped La1-xCaxMnO3 (LCMO) manganites with x>or=0.5 are generally believed to be associated with the formation of charge stripes composed of alternating Mn3+ and Mn4+ charges. However, a number of recent experiments indicate that instead of stripes the charge in these systems is spatially organized in a uniform charge density(More)
The attachment of Pseudomonas (P.) putida onto well (KGa-1) and poorly (KGa-2) crystallized kaolinite was investigated in this study. Batch experiments were carried out to determine the attachment isotherms of P. putida onto both types of kaolinite particles. The attachment process of P. putida onto KGa-1 and KGa-2 was adequately described by a Langmuir(More)
We report (139)La nuclear magnetic resonance in ferromagnetic and insulating (FMI) La(1-x)Ca(x)MnO(3), 0.10< or =x< or =0.20, which at low temperatures shows the formation of Mn octants with enhanced Mn-O wave function overlapping and electron-spin alignment. The rapid increase of the relaxation rates and the "wipeout" of the (139)La NMR signal intensity on(More)
55Mn NMR line shape measurements in La1-xCaxMnO3 for 0.20< or =x< or =0.50 provide experimental evidence about the existence of two distinct regions in the T-x magnetic phase diagram, where the homogeneous ferromagnetic (FM) metallic state is separated into FM metallic and FM insulating regions. These results are in agreement with recent theoretical(More)
The technique of impression cytology was used for cytologic examination of conjunctival samples from 128 patients with a variety of external eye diseases. The method of sample collection and the staining procedure are described. Microscopic examination showed 62 cases with allergic conjunctivitis, 23 with bacterial or viral infection, 26 cases with changes(More)
