The role of iron deficiency in noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) was evaluated in 64 rats of four different experimental groups. Iron-deficient rats (ID-rats) and normal rats (N-rats) were simultaneously exposed to a steady state white noise (20-10,000 Hz) at 110 dB SPL for 30 min. Unexposed ID- and N-rats served as controls. In N-rats the temporary(More)
In the era of computation and data-driven research, traditional methods of disseminating research are no longer fit-for-purpose. New approaches for disseminating data, methods and results are required to maximize knowledge discovery. The “long tail” of small, unstructured datasets is well catered for by a number of general-purpose repositories, but there(More)
A non-contact method for the observation of the elastic deformation of 2D molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) thin films using an ordinary optical microscope is reported. A pulsed laser is used to rapidly increase the bending deformation of the MoS2 thin films via heating. The bending angle of the MoS2 thin films shows high stability, changing only 5% in forty days(More)
The effects of iron deficiency on the cochlea were studied in growing rats fed with a basic iron-deficient diet for 80 days. The electrophysiological changes (auditory thresholds raised more than 15 dB) were observed in 47% of the cochleas of iron-deficient rats. When these organs of Corti were examined by scanning electron microscopy, abnormalities of(More)
We report the ultra-broadband nonlinear optical (NLO) response of Bi2TexSe3-x nanosheets produced by a facile solvothermal method. Our result show that the extracted basic optical nonlinearity parameters of Bi2TexSe3-x nanosheets, αNL, Imχ((3)), and FOM reach ~10(4) cm/GW, ~10(-8) esu and ~10(-13) esu cm, respectively, which are several orders of magnitude(More)
