We present a laser plasma based x-ray microscope for the water window employing a high-average power laser system for plasma generation. At 90 W laser power a brightness of 7.4 x 10(11) photons/(s x sr x μm(2)) was measured for the nitrogen Lyα line emission at 2.478 nm. Using a multilayer condenser mirror with 0.3 % reflectivity 10(6) photons/(μm(2) x s)(More)
Monoclonal antibodies (mAb) were prepared against conjugated transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF beta 1) peptides: amino acid positions 48-60 and positions 86-101. Two antibodies, mAb 16-3G1 [anti-(48-60)] and mAb 5-2G6 [anti-(86-101)] cross-reacted with native TGF beta 1, -beta 2 and -beta 3 (16-3G1) or only with native TGF beta 1 (5-2G6). Both mAb were(More)
We present transport measurements of a nondegenerate two-dimensional electron system on the surface of liquid helium at a point constriction. The constriction is formed in a microchannel by a split gate beneath the helium surface. The electrostatic energy of the electron system, which depends in part on the electron density, determines the split-gate(More)
We present transport measurements of electrons on the surface of liquid helium in a microchannel device in which a constriction may be formed by a split-gate electrode. The surface electron current passing through the microchannel first decreases and is then completely suppressed as the split-gate voltage is swept negative. The current decreases in a(More)
We report on the experimental observation of scaling in the time evolution following a sudden quench into the vicinity of a quantum critical point. The experimental system, a two-component Bose gas with coherent exchange between the constituents, allows for the necessary high level of control of parameters as well as the access to time-resolved spatial(More)
Date The final copy of this thesis has been examined by the signatories, and we find that both the content and the form meet acceptable presentation standards of scholarly work in the above mentioned discipline. Thin, freely-suspended smectic liquid crystal films, due to their layered structure, provide an ideal system with which to study two dimensional(More)
