Microarrays with biomolecules (e.g., DNA and proteins), cells, and tissues immobilized on solid substrates are important tools for biological research, including genomics, proteomics, and cell analysis. In this paper, the current state of microarray fabrication is reviewed. According to spot formation techniques, methods are categorized as "contact(More)
In simulating two-phase flows, interface normal vectors and curvatures are needed for modeling surface tension. In the traditional approach, these quantities are calculated from the spatial derivatives of a scalar function (e.g. the volume-offluid or the level set function) at any instant in time. The orders of accuracy of normals and curvatures calculated(More)
Laser-plasma wakefield-based electron accelerators are expected to deliver ultrashort electron bunches with unprecedented peak currents. However, their actual pulse duration has never been directly measured in a single-shot experiment. We present measurements of the ultrashort duration of such electron bunches by means of THz time-domain interferometry.(More)
The paper addresses planners and decision-makers in the field of international development cooperation and also institutions concerned with the impacts of projectand technology promotion. The primary aim of the dissemination of Solar Home Systems (SHS) in off grid areas in developing countries is to improve the living conditions of the population in a(More)
High-intensity laser plasma-based ion accelerators provide unsurpassed field gradients in the megavolt-per-micrometer range. They represent promising candidates for next-generation applications such as ion beam cancer therapy in compact facilities. The weak scaling of maximum ion energies with the square-root of the laser intensity, established for large(More)
