Domestic and nondomestic cats have been shown to be susceptible to feline spongiform encephalopathy (FSE), almost certainly caused by consumption of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE)-contaminated meat. Because domestic and free-ranging nondomestic felids scavenge cervid carcasses, including those in areas affected by chronic wasting disease (CWD), we(More)
Previously, Multimer Detection System (MDS) detected scrapie infected lambs of 8 mo age at pre-clinical stage in comparison with the normal controls. Above lamb were born from scrapie infected parent sheep (VRQ/VRQ). Here, MDS was challenged twice blindly with scrapie sheep blood samples from pre-clinical stages. These sheep showed no symptoms and they died(More)
We report a new method for determining the energy resolution of time-of-flight spectrometers for detecting photoelectrons produced with attosecond XUV pulses. By measuring the width of the 2s2p autoionization line of helium, we found the resolution of our spectrometer to be approximately 0.6 eV for electrons at 35.5 eV. Furthermore, the resolution in the 10(More)
