A technique for the fabrication of single-electron transistors (SETs) on tips for use in scanning probe microscopy is presented. The tips are micromachined out of an MBE-grown AlGaAs-GaAs heterostructure with a trench within each tip. The SETs are produced by aluminum evaporation and oxidation, and natural shadowing by the trench is used to separate the(More)
PURPOSE The reaction-diffusion equation has been used extensively to model brain tumor growth. However, no one has used quantitative, in vivo imaging data to invert the reaction-diffusion equation to estimate model parameters and then use those values to predict future growth. In this contribution first we determine, in silico, the measurement strategies(More)
PURPOSE To develop a clinically-relevant patient-specific modeling framework for oncology that is amenable to readily available clinical imaging data and yet retains the most salient features of response prediction. We use a mechanically coupled mathematical model of tumor growth that is initialized and constrained by MRI data early in the course of(More)
To solve the problem of injection timing in gadolinium MR angiography, a simple procedure is proposed which allows the acquisition interval to be chosen after injection. Starting simultaneously with the injection, several consecutive acquisitions are made, after which raw data acquired in a contiguous interval with a variable starting time are recombined to(More)
Controlled local fabrication of three-dimensional (3D) nanostructures is important to explore and enhance the function of single nanodevices, but is experimentally challenging. We present a scheme based on e-beam lithography (EBL) written seeds, and glancing angle deposition (GLAD) grown structures to create nanoscale objects with defined shapes but in(More)
