Aircraft and satellite observations indicate the presence of ppt (ppt ≡ pmol/mol) levels of BrO in the free troposphere with important implications for the tropospheric budgets of ozone, OH, and mercury. We can reproduce these observations with the GEOS-Chem global tropospheric chemistry model by including a broader consideration of multiphase halogen(More)
This commentary is in response to a review published earlier in this journal. It is intended to provide additional information and supplement the original paper. A short review of the failure mechanisms of polyurethane pacing lead materials is provided. Two specific degradation mechanisms, environmental stress cracking and metal ion oxidation, are(More)
Uniaxial fatigue testing was performed on different diameters of fine wires made from MP35N. The fatigue limits of the wires differed from each other based on the diameter of the wire. Multiaxial (shear) fatigue testing was also performed on a benchmark coil used to evaluate the fatigue life of all modern pacemaker leads (the CENELEC standard coil). A(More)
The elastic moduli of fine wires made from MP35N and 304SS used in implantable biomedical devices are assumed to be the same as those published in the literature. However, the cold working required to manufacture the wire significantly alters the elastic moduli of the material. We describe three experiments performed on fine wire made from MP35N and 304SS.(More)
