We present an X-ray absorption spectroscopy study on Fe-doped SrTiO3 thin films grown by pulsed laser deposition. The Fe L2,3 edge spectra are recorded for doping concentrations from 0-5% after several annealing steps at moderate temperatures. The Fe valence state is determined by comparison with an ilmenite reference sample and calculations according to(More)
Poly(ethylene glycol)s (PEGs) with different lengths were used as linkers during the preparation of peptide surfaces for protease detection. In the first approach, the PEG monolayers were prepared using a "grafting to" method on 3-aminopropyltrietoxysilane (APTES)-modified silicon wafers. Protected peptides with a fluorescent marker were synthesized by Fmoc(More)
OBJECTIVES To demonstrate that titanium implant surfaces as little as 4 weeks from production are contaminated by atmospheric hydrocarbons. This phenomenon, also known as biological ageing can be reversed by UVC irradiation technically known as photofunctionalization. To propose a new model from our experimental evidence to explain how the changes in(More)
The use of zirconium oxide in dental implantology is rapidly increasing as it is regarded as being more aesthetical and biologically friendly than titanium oxide. The interaction of titanium oxide with cells and proteins has proven to be significantly affected by the inevitable atmospheric hydrocarbon contamination, defined as biological ageing. The latter(More)
Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) measurements have been performed for Fe doped SrTiO<sub>3</sub> thin films with an Fe concentration of 2 and 5 at%. Thin films with a thickness of about 20 nm were grown by pulsed laser deposition on single crystalline SrTi<sub>0.99</sub>Nb<sub>0.01</sub>O<sub>3</sub> substrates. Low-energy electron diffraction examination(More)
Peptide surfaces were obtained by the covalent immobilisation of fluorescently labelled pentapeptides carboxyfluorescein-glycine-arginine-methionine-leucine-glycine, either directly or through a poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) linker on modified silicon wafers. Each step during the preparation of the peptide surfaces was confirmed by several surface(More)
