We demonstrate that a suspended metal wire array can be used to produce high-pressure sound waves over a wide spectrum using the thermoacoustic effect. We fabricated air-bridge arrays containing up to 2 ϫ 10 5 wires covering an area of a few square centimeters. The supporting silicon wafer was isotropically plasma etched to release the wires thereby(More)
Potato late blight, caused by Phytophthora infestans, is a major disease in potato production throughout the world. In southern Sweden, hairy nightshade (Solanum physalifolium), an alternative non-crop host to the pathogen, is an increasing weed problem. Single-lesion leaves infected by P. infestans were collected from potato and hairy nightshade to(More)
Sensing ultra-low magnetic fields has various applications in the fields of science, medicine and industry. There is a growing need for a sensor that can be operated in ambient environments where magnetic shielding is limited or magnetic field manipulation is involved. To this end, here we demonstrate a new magnetometer with high sensitivity and wide(More)
—Experimental and computational results on pro-grammable Josephson junction array (JJA) chips based on superconductor-insulator-superconductor (SIS) junctions are presented. Implications of circuit design and fabrication process on the performance are discussed. We introduce a method to decrease the attenuation of the pump microwave. Different designs are(More)
Implementation of high resolution passive THz cameras operated at cryogenic temperatures of a few Kelvin benefits from a large number of pixels. At present, building a cryogenic multiplexed read-out circuit represents a challenging task. Here we propose and demonstrate broadband niobium-based tunnel junction bolometers operating in equilibrium regime at 4(More)
A method for the determination of hydralazine substance is described. Hydrazine is derivatized in aqueous media with benzaldehyde to benzalazine. After extraction to an organic phase containing a homologue as marker, the sample is subjected to capillary column gas chromatography with nitrogen-selective detection. A prolonged reaction with 0.1 M benzaldehyde(More)
