Morphology of Gas Sensitive Tin Dioxide Thin Films Operating at Room Temperature

Tin dioxide thin films sensing ethanol vapors above the room temperature (38° C) were deposited by RF magnetron sputtering onto silicon substrates. Microstructure measurements using scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy demonstrate that samples consist of grains shaped rods with nanometer diameters which are oriented normally to the substrate surface. There are pores between the grains penetrating the entire thickness of the films.

Morphological Changes in Transplanted Sarcoma S45 at Photodynamic Therapy Using Nanocomposites Based on Gold Nanorods

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) of cancer is an advanced application of gold nanostructures. The purpose of the research is to study the morphological changes in the transplanted sarcoma S45 at PDT using nanocomposites based on gold nanorods (GNRs). GNRs synthesized with the germ method and covered by a silicon coating, functionalized by hematoporphyrin, were intratumorally injected in rats with transplanted sarcoma S45. The tumor was irradiated by He-Ne laser with a wavelength of 632.8 nm.

Phase Dynamics Modeling Technique for Estimation of Delayed Couplings between Nonlinear Oscillators Accounting for Influence of Amplitudes

An established interval estimator of a time delay in coupling between oscillators, which is based on empirical modeling of phase dynamics and maximum likelihood formalism, is shown to give sometimes erroneous conclusions about the value of the time delay. It occurs when the dynamics of amplitudes affects phases, which is typical of nonlinear oscillatory systems under the influence of strong noises or in chaotic regimes. We suggest an empirical criterion to diagnose such situations and a modified estimator of time delay which allows one to avoid erroneous conclusions.

Calculation of Scale Factors for Quantum-mechanical Force Fields

A computer-assisted method for the calculation of scaling factors for refining the quantum-mechanical force fields of polyatomic molecules by the Pulay technique is suggested. The method is an iteration procedure and does not involve the calculation of derivatives of the frequencies of vibrations with respect to the scaling factors.

IR Spectra of Salol and theirs Interpretation by Molecular Modeling

IR spectra of salol have been measured at stable and metastable phases at temperature range from 11 to 298 K. IR spectra are different. We suggest that conformational mobility of salol and influence of H-bonding are responsible for the differences.

Optimization of Phacoemulsification in Different Forms of the Cataract in the Patients with Diabetes Mellitus

In this work, human lens pathology in different forms of the cataract was studied. Two hundred twenty patients with a cataract (220 eyes) were included in the study. Morphological, immunohystological and immunocytochemical investigations of both lens capsule and substance with antibodies to α- (α-А and α-В), β-, and γ- crystallines were carried out. Diabetic patients revealed a more pronounced expression of α- and β-B crystallin compared with a group of patients with age-related cataracts. Correlation between composition of the crystallines in a lens and its density was demonstrated.
