Distinct defects in collagen microarchitecture underlie vessel-wall failure in advanced abdominal aneurysms and aneurysms in Marfan syndrome
An aneurysm of the aorta is a common pathology characterized by segmental weakening of the artery. Although it is generally accepted that the vessel-wall weakening is caused by an impaired collagenExpand

High-yield assembly of individual single-walled carbon nanotube tips for scanning probe microscopies
The structural and mechanical properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) make them ideal tips for scanning probe microscopies such as atomic force microscopy (AFM). However, the idealExpand

Microwave spectroscopy of a quantum-dot molecule
Quantum dots are small conductive regions in a semiconductor, containing a variable number of electrons (from one to a thousand) that occupy well-defined, discrete quantum states—for which reasonExpand

Scanning probe microscopes go video rate and beyond
In this article we introduce a, video-rate, control system that can be used with any type of scanning probe microscope, and that allows frame rates up to 200images∕s. These electronics are capable ofExpand

High brightness electron beam from a multi-walled carbon nanotube
Carbon nanotubes can act as electron sources with very rigid structures, making them particularly interesting for use as point electron sources in high-resolution electron-beam instruments. PromisingExpand

Quantitative force versus distance measurements in amplitude modulation AFM: a novel force inversion technique.
A new method for extracting quantitative data from amplitude modulation dynamic force-distance measurements is developed. The method is based on the harmonic oscillator model of vibrating atomicExpand

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae Fin1 protein forms cell cycle-specific filaments between spindle pole bodies
The FIN1 gene from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae encodes a basic protein with putative coiled-coil regions. Here we show that in large-budded cells a green fluorescent protein-Fin1 fusionExpand

Quantitative comparison of different iron forms in the temporal cortex of Alzheimer patients and control subjects
We present a quantitative study of different molecular iron forms found in the temporal cortex of Alzheimer (AD) patients. Applying the methodology we developed in our previous work, we quantify theExpand

Towards an experimental test of gravity-induced quantum state reduction
Modern developments in condensed matter and cold atom physics have made the realization of macroscopic quantum states in the laboratory everyday practice. The ready availability of these statesExpand
