The rapid lifetime method (RLD) for determining excited-state lifetimes uses the ratio of the areas under two regions of the decay. To get good precision with the standard method, prior knowledge of the lifetime is essential to selecting the integration regions. As will be shown, the usual method of selecting integration regions is far from optimal. An(More)
For evaluating exponential luminescence decays, there are a variety of computational rapid integral methods based on the areas of the decay under different binned intervals. Using both Monte Carlo methods and experimental photon counting data, we compare the standard rapid lifetime determination method (SRLD), optimized rapid lifetime determination methods(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Chronic hepatitis B (CHB) disproportionately affects the Asian-American population in the USA. Tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) has demonstrated potent antiviral activity in clinical trials, but data in Asian-Americans from community studies are lacking. METHODS Adult Asian-American patients with CHB from private medical and(More)
