A simple method of identifying the initial slope of the stress-strain curve (i.e., Young's modulus of the soft tissue) by introducing the pipette aspiration technique is presented. The tissue was assumed to be isotropic and macroscopically homogeneous. Numerical simulations by the linear finite element analysis were performed for the axisymmetric model to(More)
Ferroelectric (Bi,La)<sub>4</sub>Ti<sub>3</sub>O<sub>12</sub> films have been fabricated by the sol-gel process with "surface treatment" which is carried out before the crystallization annealing. Two kinds of surface treatment have been examined; one is plasma treatment and the other is deposition of thin Bi<sub>4</sub>Ti<sub>3</sub>O<sub>12</sub>,(More)
