Exceptional elevation of children's leukemia appearing 5 years after the 1983 startup of the Krümmel nuclear power plant, accompanied by a significant increase of adult leukemia cases, led to investigations of radiation exposures of the population living near the plant. The rate of dicentric chromosomes in peripheral lymphocytes of seven parents of children(More)
Chromosome aberrations and sister chromatid exchanges (SCEs) were determined in standard peripheral lymphocyte metaphase preparations of 13 British Gulf War veterans, two veterans of the recent war in the Balkans and one veteran of both wars. All 16 volunteers suspect exposures to depleted uranium (DU) while deployed at the two different theatres of war in(More)
PURPOSE Between 1990 and 1991 a leukaemia cluster was observed in children living close to the combined site of a nuclear power plant and a nuclear research facility in Elbmarsch, a region in Lower Saxony (Germany). We aim to investigate the prevalence of presumably radiation-induced chromosomal aberrations in peripheral blood lymphocytes of children in(More)

Only multiple X ray diagnostics could be identified as a common risk factor in a leukaemia cluster that appeared between 1985-1989 in the municipality of Sittensen in northern Germany. In order to judge if the effect could be explained by irradiation dose, estimates were done in two of the leukaemia cases and seven former patients of a practice where some(More)
When a powerful femtosecond laser pulse propagates in an optical medium, self-focusing occurs. Normally, it is the most powerful part (slice) of the pulse that selffocuses first during its propagation. Self-focusing is balanced by the creation of plasma in the self-focal volume, which defocuses the pulse. This balance leads to a limitation of the peak(More)
