Controllable production of nanometre-sized structures is an important field of research, and synthesis of one-dimensional objects, such as nanowires, is a rapidly expanding area with numerous applications, for example, in electronics, photonics, biology and medicine. Nanoscale electronic devices created inside nanowires, such as p-n junctions, were reported(More)
The formation of nanostructures with controlled size and morphology has been the focus of intensive research in recent years. Such nanostructures are important in the development of nanoscale devices and in the exploitation of the properties of nanomaterials. Here we show how tree-like nanostructures ('nanotrees') can be formed in a highly controlled way.(More)
Changes in oxygen uptake, cardiac output, heart rate, stroke volume, central blood volume, arteriovenous oxygen difference, aortic, pulmonary arterial, and right atrial blood pressure, systemic vascular resistance, hematocrit, circulating plasma volume, urine flow, fractional sodium excretion, and free water clearance were studied in eight healthy(More)
We report on a new form of III-V compound semiconductor nanostructures growing epitaxially as vertical V-shaped nanomembranes on Si(001) and study their light-scattering properties. Precise position control of the InAs nanostructures in regular arrays is demonstrated by bottom-up synthesis using molecular beam epitaxy in nanoscale apertures on a SiO(2)(More)
We demonstrate two very different morphologies for GaP and GaAs nanowires grown by Au-assisted MOVPE on Si(111) substrates: rodlike wires and tapered wires with sharp tips. We show that the morphology is related to the stability of the particles at the wire tips during growth, and we propose that the mechanism of this effect is diffusion of Au away from the(More)
A previously described single-pellet release model has been simplified and modified to give predictions of the release from multiple-pellet systems, besides describing the release from single pellets. The simplified single-pellet model has been verified using single-pellet data and has been used to estimate three release-controlling parameters, namely the(More)
A common way to formulate controlled-release (CR) pharmaceuticals is to coat pellets of active substance with a polymer film, decrease the size of the pellets and distribute them as multiple-unit dosages in capsules. To increase the understanding of the release mechanism, the pellet shape and surface structure of pellets, before and after release in(More)
Thiobacillus ferrooxidans, T. thioparus, Acidianus brierleyi and TH2 Lund, an archaeal isolate, were tested for sulphur oxidising capacity on ground rubber from spent car tyres. T. ferrooxidans converted 8 % (w/w) of the sulphur in cryoground spent rubber to sulphate in 20 days. Desulphurization of fresh made natural rubber was studied with scanning(More)
