UNLABELLED Ex vivo measurements in animals are used frequently in the field of nuclear medicine for the characterization of newly developed radioligands and for drug development. In vivo SPECT would replace these ex vivo measurements in a relatively large number of cases if one were able to adequately image small organs. The pinhole collimator has been used(More)
The aim of this study is to develop a postlaryngectomy airway climate explorer (ACE) for assessment of intratracheal temperature and humidity and of influence of heat and moisture exchangers (HMEs). Engineering goals were within-device condensation prevention and fast response time characteristics. The ACE consists of a small diameter, heated air-sampling(More)
The effect of the technique used for impression making on the accuracy of three types impression materials, (vinyl silicons, condensation silicons and polyether elastomers) was evaluated. Three main impression making techniques were used. Impressions were made for stainless steel master model. The impressions were poured after thirty minutes with improved(More)
Accurate, precise and reproducible isocratic RP-HPLC method was developed and subsequent validated for the analysis of Torasemide (I), Irbesartan (II) and Olmesartan medoxomil (III) at ambient temperature, using Atlantis 4.6 mm x 250 mm RP-C18 Column, with a flow rate of 1.5 ml.min, and UV. detector at 288 nm and 260 nm for (I) and (II and III),(More)
In this paper, a novel strain-induced quantum well intermixing (QWI) technique is employed on InGaP/InAlGaP material system to promote interdiffusion via application of a thick-dielectric encapsulant layer, in conjunction with cycle annealing at elevated temperature. Broad area devices fabricated from this novel cost-effective QWI technique lased at(More)
Ultrasonic velocity and attenuation measurements in AZ91D magnesium (Mg) alloy with dendritic, rosette and globular microstructures were performed at elevated temperatures using a non-contact laser-ultrasonic technique. It was found that the ultrasonic velocity in the globular microstructure and the ultrasonic attenuation in the dendritic microstructure are(More)
A newly competitive electrochemical sensor for nicotine (NIC) detection was successfully achieved. Nano-TiO2 with a carbon paste electrode (CPE) were used for the sensor construction, where Nano-TiO2 was considered as one of the richest and highly variable class of materials. The sensor showed electrocatalytic activity in both aqueous and micellar media(More)
A chemical etching technique is described for producing etch patterns in beryllium-free nickel chromium ceramo-metal alloy. Disc-shaped samples were chemically etched, evaluated with SEM and analysed by the EDAX technique. Scanning electron micrographs revealed, profound retentive cavities. The EDAX analysis provided a comprehensive interpretation of the(More)
An ice detection system is designed using an imaging sensor which has a forward field of a view direction. The proposed system solves the problem of detecting the Black Ice on various surfaces using a depth imaging sensor based on Kinect device. In some places where ice cannot be seen easily from a distance, especially in low visibility, by a human eye, it(More)
