A novel power supply for medical implants has been developed. A wireless near-infrared power transmission recharges a lithium secondary battery in the power supply. A photovoltaic cell array embedded under skin receives near-infrared light through the skin and charges the battery directly powering an implanted device. We have shown that, for a photodiode(More)
The gastrocecal transit time was measured in 10 patients suffering from anorexia nervosa,using a lactulose hydrogen breath test, and was compared with the orocecal transit time in 11 healthy controls. One of the 10 patients and one of the 11 controls were excluded from this study because of no discernible increase in hydrogen excretion. The transit time was(More)
Leiomyomatosis peritonealis disseminata (LPD) is an extremely rare condition, which is characterized by the presence of multiple peritoneal and subperitoneal nodules composed of bland smooth muscle cells. Albeit extremely rare, coexistence of endometriosis within LPD lesions has also reported. Herein, we report the seventh documented case of LPD coexisting(More)
An orange-red organic light-emitting diode containing a heptazine derivative exhibits high performance with a maximum external quantum efficiency of 17.5 ± 1.3% and a peak luminance of 17000 ± 1600 cd m⁻² without any light out-coupling enhancement. The high electroluminescence performance can be ascribed to the presence of an efficient up-conversion channel(More)
Make your OLED fluorescent: an aromatic molecule based on a spiro-acridine derivative was designed, and its photoluminescence and electroluminescence were characterized. By combining the donor and acceptor moieties a small energy gap between the lowest singlet and triplet states was achieved. This design leads to an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) that(More)
Thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) properties of a dicarbazole-triazine compound, 9-(4,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)-9'-phenyl-3,3'-bicarbazole (CzT), and its OLED characteristics were investigated. An estimated small energy gap of about 90 meV between the singlet and triplet energy states of CzT made the up-conversion of triplet excitons back(More)
Our work reveals a high dependence on charge-transfer (CT) amounts for the optimal Hartree-Fock percentage in the exchange-correlation functional of time-dependent density functional theory (TD-DFT) and the error of a vertical transition energy calculated by a given functional. Using these relations, the zero-zero transition energies of the first singlet(More)
A compact, photocouplerlike system is presented for wireless transcutaneous transmission of biological signals. The system consists of an optically powered near-infrared light transmitter, a receiver for the signals from it, and a near-infrared light source with which to irradiate it. The transmitter, which is implanted under the skin, is transcutaneously(More)
