    • Highly focused supersonic microjets 

      Tagawa, Yoshikuyi; Oudalov, Nikolai; Visser, Claas Willem; Peters, Ivo R.; van der Meer, Devaraj; Sun, Chao; Prosperetti, Andrea; Lohse, Detlef (Physical Review X, 7/9/2012)
      This paper describes the production of thin, focused microjets with velocities of up to 850 m/s by the rapid vaporization of a small mass of liquid in an open liquid-filled capillary. The vaporization is caused by the ...
    • Highly focused supersonic microjets: numerical simulations 

      Peters, Ivo R.; Tagawa, Yoshikuyi; Oudalov, Nikolai; Sun, Chao; Prosperetti, Andrea; Lohse, Detlef; van der Meer, Devaraj (Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 9/28/2012)
      By focusing a laser pulse inside a capillary partially filled with liquid, a vapour bubble is created which emits a pressure wave. This pressure wave travels through the liquid and creates a fast, focused axisymmetric ...
    • Histamine reduces GPIb?-mediated adhesion of platelets to TNF-?-activatedvascular endothelium 

      Brown, Theodore P.; Forouzan, Omid; Shevkoplyas, Sergey S.; Khismatullin, Damir B. (Thrombosis Research, 2013)
      Histamine and tumor necrosis factor-? (TNF-?) are critical mediators of acute and chronic inflammation that are generated by mast cells and macrophages in atherosclerotic lesions or systemically during allergic attacks. ...
    • History effects on the gas exchange between a bubble and a liquid 

      Chu, Shigan; Prosperetti, Andrea (Physical Review Fluids, 10/17/2016)
      Diffusive processes exhibit a strong dependence on history effects. For a gas bubble at rest in a liquid, such effects arise when the concentration of dissolved gas at the bubble surface, dictated by Henry's law, depends ...
    • History force on coated microbubbles propelled by ultrasound 

      Garbin, Valeria; Dollet, Banjamin; Overvelde, Marlies; Cojoc, Dan; Di Fabrizio, Dan; van Wijngaarden, L.; Prosperetti, Andrea; de Jong, Nico; Lohse, Detlef; Versluis, Michel (The Physics of Fluids, 9/21/2009)
      In this paper the unsteady translation of coated microbubbles propelled by acoustic radiation force is studied experimentally. A system of two pulsating microbubbles of the type used as contrast agent in ultrasound medical ...
    • History of the ribosome and the origin of translation 

      Petrov, Anton S.; Gulen, Burak; Norris, Ashlyn M.; Kovacs, Nicholas A.; Bernier, Chad R.; Lanier, Kathryn A.; Fox, George E.; Harvey, Stephen C.; Wartell, Roger M.; Hud, Nicholas V.; Williams, Loren Dean (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 12/1/2015)
      We present a molecular-level model for the origin and evolution of the translation system, using a 3D comparative method. In this model, the ribosome evolved by accretion, recursively adding expansion segments, iteratively ...
