The operation of electronic devices relies on the density of free charge carriers available in the semiconductor; in most semiconductor devices this density is controlled by the addition of doping atoms. As dimensions are scaled down to achieve economic and performance benefits, the presence of interfaces and materials adjacent to the semiconductor will(More)
—This paper discusses the electronic transport properties of nanowire field-effect transistors (NW-FETs). Four different device concepts are studied in detail: Schottky-barrier NW-FETs with metallic source and drain contacts, conventional-type NW-FETs with doped NW segments as source and drain electrodes, and, finally, two new concepts that enable steep(More)
The percutaneous absorption of diclofenac diethylammonium 1.16% (w/w) in a combination of emulsion cream and gel (Voltaren Emulgel) and of diclofenac sodium 1% (w/w) in a cream formulation (Voltaren cream) was investigated in guinea-pig, rabbit and man. The percutaneous absorption of diclofenac sodium in guinea-pig was 3 to 6% of the dose when the cream(More)
A spectrophotometric method for the quantitative determination of rifampicin in urine is described and its specificity and precision are discussed. It is shown that the mean cumulative urinary elimination of rifampicin is reproducible when the same dose is administered twice in two different experiments to the same group of volunteers. The percentage of the(More)
Bulk syntheses of colloids efficiently produce nanoparticles with unique and useful properties. Their integration onto surfaces is a prerequisite for exploiting these properties in practice. Ideally, the integration would be compatible with a variety of surfaces and particles, while also enabling the fabrication of large areas and arbitrarily high-accuracy(More)
A case of self-poisoning with maprotiline presenting with coma stage III was treated by resin hemoperfusion for 9 hours using an XAD-4 resin cartridge. Plasma levels of about 800 ng/ml maprotilin were initially found. After 5 hours of hemoperfusion progredient clinical improvement was noticed without decreasing tendency of the blood drug levels. The(More)
Semiconducting nanowires have recently attracted considerable attention. With their unique electrical and optical properties, they offer interesting perspectives for basic research as well as for technology. A variety of technical applications, such as nanowires as parts of sensors, and electronic and photonic devices have already been demonstrated. In(More)
