Today, microarray fluorescence detection is still limited because a great proportion of hybrids remain undetectable. In this paper we describe sol-gel optical multilayers (stacks of low- and high-index layers) deposited on glass slides which increase the fluorescence of DNA microarrays and favour the detection of fluorescent targets. An alternative to the(More)
This work focuses on the modelling of nonlinear response of reinforced concrete structures by means of the finite element method. A new technique which employs a variable mesh in order to reduce the computational cost of classical approaches is presented. For some piecewise linear constitutive models which are widely employed for the modelling of reinforced(More)
