The aim of this study was to characterize early ultrastructural, biochemical, and functional alterations of the pulmonary surfactant system induced by Salmonella minnesota lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in rat lungs. Experimental groups were: (1) control in vitro, 150 min perfusion; (2) LPS in vitro, 150 min perfusion, infusion of 50 microg/ml LPS after 40 min;… (More)
We present a new class of interconnection solutions for centimeter scale, board and backplane level, optoelectronic interconnections that combines the high density of free space optical interconnections with the flexibility and relaxed geometry of fiber optic links.
Densely integrated systems in the future will incorporate device and communication technologies that span optics, electronics, micro-mechanics, and micro-fluidics. Given the fundamental differences in substrate materials, feature scale and processing requirements between integrated devices in these domains, multi-chip, system-in-package (SIP) designs will… (More)
