A technique is described for the measurement of specific [3H]diazepam binding to subcellular fractions of rat brain. Binding occurred in fresh or hypotonically shocked, frozen and thawed preparations; was independent of the buffer used; and was concentrated in the synaptosomal fraction. The total binding capacity of crude brain homogenate was entirely(More)
The photothermoelectric (PTE) effect uses non-uniform absorption of light to produce a voltage via the Seebeck effect and is of interest for optical sensing and solar-to-electric energy conversion. However, the utility of PTE devices reported to date has been limited by the need to use a tightly focused laser spot to achieve the required, non-uniform(More)
Finite element modelling (FEM) is used to show that the addition of Au contacts to a single horizontal InAs/InP heterostructure nanowire substantially alters the nanowire's optical properties in comparison to the uncontacted case. It is found that the addition of contacts can increase absorption efficiency, decrease scattering efficiency and shift the(More)
