Purpose. The selection of cosalane (NSC 658586) by the National Cancer Institute for further development as a potential drug candidate for the treatment of AIDS led to the exploration of the solubility behavior of this extremely hydrophobic drug, which has an intrinsic solubility (S0) approaching 1 ng/ml. This study describes attempts to reliably measure(More)
A long-term offset cancellation scheme that enables continuous-time amplifier operation is described. Offset cancellation is achieved by programming floating-gate transistors that form an integral part of the amplifier's architecture. The offset voltage of a single-stage folded cascode amplifier is reduced to plusmn25 muW in a 0.5mum digital CMOS process.(More)
In this paper we examine the modeled daily toxaphene air concentrations from September 9 to 13, 2000, during which air concentration levels were 2-3 orders of magnitude higher than those derived from in situ measurements around the Great Lakes during the same year and during the 1990s. Meteorological conditions revealed that a typical deformation flow(More)
A coupled atmospheric transport model was employed to study six scenarios to assess the contribution of reemission and long-range transport of toxaphene from different sources in the United States to its environmental fate in the Great Lakes ecosystem in the year 2000. Modeled air concentrations at the first model level (1.5 m) range from less than 5 pg(More)
Two global atmospheric transport models for persistent toxic substances were employed to quantify the intercontinental atmospheric transport of lindane in 2005 using a recently constructed global lindane emission inventory. The focus of this numerical investigation was to identify, on an intercontinental scale, the major sources of lindane that contributed(More)
This study presents an evidence for association of the air concentrations of HCB measured in the Great Lakes region with the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) during the 1990s. The measured HCB concentrations in the atmosphere collected by the Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN) program in the Great Lakes during the 1990s show strong(More)
The reliability of insulation systems is a major requirement of any power apparatus. The incidence of minor flaws and irregularities such as voids, surface imperfections etc, in insulation systems is however inevitable and leads to partial discharges (PD). Classification of PD patterns plays an important role during manufacturing and on-site assessment of(More)
In this paper we report a generalized templating approach for fabricating wafer-scale, two-dimensional, non-close-packed (ncp) colloidal crystals. Polymer nanocomposites consisting of monolayer ncp colloidal crystals prepared by a spin-coating process are used as sacrificial templates. After removal of the colloidal silica templates, the voids in the(More)
