Conclusions: A large number of mouse and rat cognitive testing measures have been reported for a variety of particle species and energies for acute doses. However tissue reactions occur above dose thresholds and very few studies were performed at the heavy ion doses to be encountered on space missions (

Publication date: August 2019Source: Current Opinion in Colloid &Interface Science, Volume 42Author(s): Sebastian Jaksch, Thomas Gutberlet, Peter Müller-BuschbaumAbstractInvestigating lateral structures of surfaces and interfaces from the mesoscale down to atomic resolution is of growing interest to modify, functionalize, and understand the behavior of materials in soft matter and biophysics. Grazing-incidence scattering techniques have proven to be very powerful for such kind of studies. Using X-rays and neutrons also buried lateral structures can be accessed in a non-destructive way. The large probed sample area...

An overview is given of the soft X-ray photon-in/photon-out instruments on the free-electron laser (FEL) beamline at the Pohang Accelerator Laboratory, and selected commissioning results are presented. The FEL beamline provides a photon energy of 270 to 1200   eV, with an energy bandwidth of 0.44%, an energy of 200   µ J per pulse and a pulse width of

X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is a powerful element-specific technique that allows the study of structural and chemical properties of matter. Often an indirect method is used to access the X-ray absorption (XA). This work demonstrates a new XAS implementation that is based on off-axis transmission Fresnel zone plates to obtain the XA spectrum of La0.6Sr0.4MnO3 by analysis of three emission lines simultaneously at the detector, namely the O 2p – 1s, Mn 3s – 2p and Mn 3d – 2p transitions. This scheme allows the simultaneous measurement of an integrated total fluorescence yield and the partial fluoresc...

A new high-vacuum multipurpose diffractometer (called FORTE from the French acronyms of the project) has recently been installed at the tender/hard X-ray SIRIUS beamline of Synchrotron SOLEIL, France. The geometry chosen allows one to work either in the classical Eulerian four-circle geometry for bulk X-ray diffraction (XRD) or in the z-axis geometry for surface XRD. The diffractometer nicely fits the characteristics of the SIRIUS beamline, optimized to work in the 1.1 – 4.5   keV range, and allows one to perform unprecedented diffraction anomalous fine structure (DAFS) experiments in the tender X-ray region, also ...

The Diamond Light Source (DLS) beamline I15-1 measures atomic pair distribution functions (PDF) using scattering of 40-80 keV X-rays. A unique focusing element was needed to condense these X-rays from an initial large cross section (11.0 mm H × 4.2 mm V) into a required spot size of FWHM ...

Introduction: Post-operative glenoid retroversion has been shown in biomechanical, finite element analysis, and clinical studies to be related to the development of radiolucency and component loosening, one of the most common causes of failure after total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA). We analyzed version correction after TSA and the associated risk of developing glenoid component radiolucency at minimum 2-year follow-up. A minimal radiation method was validated in a cadaveric model and utilized in a clinical series to measure post-operative glenoid component version using routine post-operative X-rays, pre-operative CT scan...
