Nineteen patients with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA), ten with systemic (s)-JCA, and nine with polyarticular-onset (p)-JCA were examined for interleukin (IL)-6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha, IL-2R, and IL-10 levels. Power Doppler sonography (PDS) for the more affected knee was used in all of them to evaluate soft tissue vascularity. Serum levels of… (More)
Semiconductor nanocrystals that show plasmonic resonance represent an emerging class of highly promising plasmonic materials with potential applications in diverse fields, such as sensing and optical and optoelectronic devices. We report a new approach to synthesizing homogeneous covellite CuS nanoplatelets in air and the almost complete disappearance of… (More)
We investigate the terahertz generation efficiency dependence as function of the pulse width durations at 800 nm. Our results confirmed conversion efficiency of 0.35% with saturation at 240 fs of pulse width duration.
We demonstrate an intense broadband terahertz (THz) source based on the interaction of relativistic-intensity femtosecond lasers with aligned copper nanorod array targets. For copper nanorod targets with a length of 5 μm, a maximum 13.8 times enhancement in the THz pulse energy (in ≤20 THz spectral range) is measured as compared to that with a thick plane… (More)
We report temperature dependence and thermal hysteresis behavior of terahertz transmission through photoexcited graphene. We vary the temperature between room temperature and 1800°C, and use the optical-pump/terahertz-probe differential transmission technique.
