Habilitationsschrift zur Erlangung des akademischen Grades doctor rerum naturalium habilitatus ii Acknowledgments Of the many who have helped me along in the work contained this thesis there are some I wish to thank expressly. Gene Golub brought me to Stanford for graduate study, where, besides his nurturing, I enjoyed four sunny and formative years in the(More)
Alcohol appears to be a predisposing factor for the high incidence of oesophageal cancer in Western France. Therefore, we have investigated the influence of ethanol on the alkylation of DNA by a carcinogen which reacts selectively with oesophageal tissue. Female Wistar rats (approximately 80 g) received a single i.v. injection of(More)
A highly parallel microarray scanner for functional genomic research using a dynamically reconfigurable holographic excitation and hyperspectral fluorescence detection is described. The light from two laser sources (405 and 532 nm) is split into an arbitrary number of focused spots on the biochip using a pair of spatial light modulators and a novel imaging(More)
We report on the optical properties of Bragg mirrors and filters fabricated from photo-cross-linked standard optical polymers. The transmittance spectra of these devices in the visible to near-infrared spectral range were measured. We demonstrate efficient tuning of the filter peak of the polymer Bragg filters over several hundred nanometers by adding(More)
Recent experiments on the static and dynamic properties of polycrystalline colloidal solids show a pronounced influence of morphological details. Here we investigate several possibilities to vary systematically one key morphological parameter, namely the average crystallite radius rc of polycrystalline solids. We report measurements of rc as observed by(More)
We present novel biconvex solid-body elastomer (polydimethylsiloxane) lenses, which can be tuned in focal length by using magnetic or mechanical actuation. The focal length change is induced by applying radial elastic strain and is investigated for different initial radii of curvature of the lenses and different actuation designs. In all cases, a linear(More)
The emitted particulates of five diesel-engined and two gasoline-engined passenger cars were investigated for the elimination rate from hamster lungs after intratracheal instillation. In addition extracts of these particulates were studied for their influence on the mixed function oxidase activity (MFO; Benzo(a)pyrene Hydroxylase, Ethoxycoumarine(More)
