  • Publication number: 20120151995
    Abstract: A photoacoustic sensor, containing a resonance body, which at least partially delimits a space for receiving molecules to be detected, and a device for detecting an oscillation of the resonance body, including a device for optically detecting the location of at least one partial surface of the resonance body. A method for the photoacoustic detection of molecules in the gas phase and to a method for producing an optically integrated photoacoustic sensor.

  • Patent number: 6356381
    Abstract: In accordance with the present invention, a multi-wavelength cross-correlator for two radiation pulses is disclosed. In one embodiment, a method for operating the cross-correlator is disclosed. A first radiation pulse is focused upon the photodiode. A second radiation pulse is also focused on the photodiode where the first and second radiation pulses illuminate a common point on the photodiode. The first and second radiation pulses, which have different wavelengths, are converted into a photocurrent using the photodiode where the product of the first and second intensities is proportional to the photocurrent. An amplitude of the photocurrent is detected while varying the delay of at least one of the first and second radiation pulses. In another embodiment, a multi-wavelength cross-correlator includes a radiation detector and a current detector. The radiation detector converts energy from the first and second radiation pulses, which have different wavelengths, into a current.

  • Patent number: 5432157
    Abstract: The invention relates to the chrysospermin active peptides of the formula IAcPhe-Aib-Ser-Aib-x-Leu-Gln-Gly-Aib-Aib-Ala-Ala-Aib-Pro- y-Aib-Aib-Gln-Trp-ol (SEQ ID NO. 1)in which x and y, independently of each other, denote Aib or Iva, which are synthesized by the fungus Apiocrea chrysosperma during fermentation and which accumulate in the culture broth, to a preparation process, to the use of the chrysospermins as pharmacological active compounds, in particular as active compounds against bacteria, fungi and/or nematodes, and for the treatment of rejection reactions in organ transplantations and of tumor disorders, and to the microorganism Apiocrea chrysosperma DSM 7444.

  • Patent number: 4801840
    Abstract: To provide for preheating of a high-pressure discharge lamp (6) having a charge vessel (7) closed off by a pinch or press seal (8), a ceramic holder (1), typically a ceramic tube with multiple capillary openings therein, has a heating wire threaded through the capillary openings, and the ceramic holder is located in intimate thermal transfer with respect to the lamp, for example by being placed and cemented in the transition zone between the discharge vessel (7) and the pinch or press seal. Heater power of about 10 W applied to two such ceramic capillary heaters located adjacent both sides of the pinch or press seal permits preheating the fill of the lamp so that 40% of rated light output can be obtained within several seconds after energization of the electrodes. The lamp is suitable as a headlamp for vehicular use and can be constructed in miniature size, with a discharge vessel volume in the range of 100ths cm.sup.3.

  • Patent number: 4782266
    Abstract: To provide for a long electrode shaft, which insures rapid and reliable sting of the lamp, the electrodes are formed with a straight shaft portion extending from a pinch or press seal (8) and then twisted into a loop (20, 21) which terminates in discharge tips (18, 19), facing each other across the center line of the lamp. The loops, preferably, include a circular portion of about 270.degree., with a radius of greater than the radius of the diameter of the wires--typically of tungsten--and offset with respect to the electrode shaft so that, at cross-over points (24, 25) the looped portion (20, 21) of the respective electrode and the straight or shaft portion (22, 23) of the electrode do not touch each other; a very small spacing, for example 0.05 mm, with electrode wires of 0.2 mm diameter, is sufficient.
