Benzyl alcohol (BeOH) is a urinary metabolite of toluene, which has been seldom evaluated for biological monitoring of exposure to this popular solvent. The present study was initiated to develop a practical method for determination of BeOH in urine and to examine if this metabolite can be applied as a marker of occupational exposure to toluene. A practical… (More)
The signals from VLF/LF transmitters are known to propagate in the Earth-ionosphere waveguide, so that the subionospheric propagation characteristics are very sensitive to the condition of the lower ionosphere. We know that there appear the terminator times just around the sunrise and sunset in the diurnal variation of subionospheric VLF/LF signal… (More)
Almost fully stripped aluminum ion acceleration up to 12 MeV/u from the interaction between the ultra-intense short pulse high contrast laser and the micrometer thick foil target is presented.
Optically induced magnetization, whose relaxation time is of the order of a hundred picoseconds, and coherent oscillations of magnons in terahertz region were observed in an antiferromagnet NiO by polarization spectroscopy with the pump-probe technique.
