STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the aspects of quality of life that are affected by weight in the general population, to develop a specific questionnaire (OSQOL) that can measure with reliability and validity the impact of overweight and obesity on well being, and to compare the results with those obtained using a well known generic tool (the "SF 36" scale).(More)
Dependence of the phase and magnitude of the response of Y–Ba–Cu–O edge transition bolometers on the superconducting transition is studied. The responses of both large and small area devices were investigated and several anomalies are observed. The response of small area LaAlO3 devices considerably differed from that expected based on the dR/dT curve. This(More)
The effect of the superconductivity transition on the thermal crosstalk in YBa<sub>2</sub>Cu<sub>3</sub>O<sub>7-x</sub> edge-transition bolometer arrays is investigated for DC to midrange modulation frequency infrared radiation. The bolometers in the arrays were designed with various distances on SrTiO<sub>3</sub> (100) substrates. We have observed a change(More)
We report on experiments with a multi-channel HTS radio-frequency (rf) SQUID gradiometer for recording fetal and adult magnetocardiograms. Four sensing SQUID magnetometers and two common reference SQUID magnetometers form a 4 channel electronic gradiometer system of either first or second order. The magnetometers consist of HTS step edge SQUIDs and flux(More)
For the optimization of the operation of rf-SQUIDs, a high pumping frequency f/sub 0/ and a high quality factor Q of the tank circuit are desirable. For this purpose we used a washer rf SQUID or a current-injection loop SQUID integrated with a modified planar hairpin resonator around the SQUID. On LaAlO/sub 3/ substrates, we measured f/sub 0/ at resonance(More)
Incorporating an efficient approach for the finite-element simulation of eddy current superconductive quantum interface device (SQUID) nondestructive evaluation (NDE) systems, an appropriate finite-element method (FEM) has been presented for simulating and analyzing such systems. We have introduced a new model for the planar double-D coils, which are used(More)
We present an analytical thermal model to explain the crosstalk in YBCO edge-transition bolometer arrays. The verification of the model was tested on sample array devices made of 200 and 400 nm YBCO films on LaAlO3 and SrTiO3 substrates. The model presented was able to explain the effects of the various physical parameters of the devices, such as the film(More)
Substrate-bound gradients expressed in numerous spatio-temporal patterns play a crucial role during the development of complex neural circuits. A deeper understanding of the axon guidance mechanism is provided by studying the effect of a defined substrate-bound cue on a confined neural network. In this study, we constructed a discontinuous substrate-bound(More)
Bolometric response and noise characteristics of YBCO superconductor transition edge IR detectors with relatively sharp transition and its resulting detectivity are investigated both theoretically and experimentally. The magnitude of response of a fabricated device was obtained for different bias currents and modulation frequencies. Also dependency of(More)
