A nucleic acid sequence based (NASBA) assay for the generic detection of enterovirus RNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples was developed and compared with an established reverse transcription/nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) protocol. The sensitivity of NASBA followed by detection of amplicons with a biotinylated oligonucleotide probe was < or =(More)
The ability to precisely control the thermal conductivity (kappa) of a material is fundamental in the development of on-chip heat management or energy conversion applications. Nanostructuring permits a marked reduction of kappa of single-crystalline materials, as recently demonstrated for silicon nanowires. However, silicon-based nanostructured materials(More)
We have studied the dependence of the superconducting (SC) transition temperature on the mutual orientation of magnetizations of Fe1 and Fe2 layers in the spin valve system CoO(x)/Fe1/Cu/Fe2/Pb. We find that this dependence is nonmonotonic when passing from the parallel to the antiparallel case and reveals a distinct minimum near the orthogonal(More)
We present a novel ultrahigh stability sensor for quantitative magnetic force microscopy (MFM) based on an iron filled carbon nanotube. In contrast to the complex magnetic structure of conventional MFM probes, this sensor constitutes a nanomagnet with defined properties. The long iron nanowire can be regarded as an extended dipole of which only the monopole(More)
This paper presents results on the preparation, structural, electrical and magnetic properties of Fe(3)Si films as a representative for a Heusler alloy-like compound which are known as half-metallic materials with ferromagnetic behaviour. The films have been prepared by means of ultra-high vacuum (UHV) electron beam evaporation with the aim of achieving(More)
Quantum coherent transport of surface states in a mesoscopic nanowire of the three-dimensional topological insulator Bi(2}Se(3) is studied in the weak-disorder limit. At very low temperatures, many harmonics are evidenced in the Fourier transform of Aharonov-Bohm oscillations, revealing the long phase coherence length of spin-chiral Dirac fermions.(More)
Baryon-to-meson Transition Distribution Amplitudes (TDAs) encoding valuable new information on hadron structure appear as building blocks in the collinear factorized description for several types of hard exclusive reactions. In this paper, we address the possibility of accessing nucleon-to-pion (πN) TDAs from p̄p → eeπ reaction with the future P̄ANDA(More)
Superconductor-ferromagnet (S/F) spin valve effect theories based on the S/F proximity phenomenon assume that the superconducting transition temperature Tc of F1/F2/S or F1/S/F2 trilayers for parallel magnetizations of the F1 and F2 layers (T(c)(P)) are smaller than for the antiparallel orientations (T(c)(AP)). Here, we report for CoOx/Fe1/Cu/Fe2/In(More)
In modern materials science the characterisation of nanostructures is becoming increasingly important. For measurement of the quality of nanoscale multilayer arrangement with high spatial resolution a method is described that is based on the broadening of the spots in the Fourier transformation of transmission electron microscopic images of multilayer(More)
