    Purpose The inflammatory markers chitinase-3-like protein 1 (CHI3L1) and chitotriosidase (CHIT1) have both been associated with cardiovascular complications. The aim of this preliminary observational study was to assess the roles and interaction ...
  • Sigurdardottir, Heida Maria (Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, 2013)
    In this thesis, we explore how objects affect the space around them. We show that spatial information is extracted from even completely novel objects. Information derived from the shape of objects is swiftly and automatically integrated into a variety ...
  • Hajihoseini, Hamidreza; Kateb, Movaffaq; Ingvarsson, Snorri; Gudmundsson, Jon Tomas (Beilstein Institut, 2019-09-20)
    Background: Oblique angle deposition is known for yielding the growth of columnar grains that are tilted in the direction of the deposition flux. Using this technique combined with high-power impulse magnetron sputtering (HiPIMS) can induce unique ...

    Bosonic condensation belongs to the most intriguing phenomena in physics, and was mostly reserved for experiments with ultra-cold quantum gases. More recently, it became accessible in exciton-based solid-state systems at elevated temperatures. Here, ...
  • Huang, Guo-yuan; Ohlsson, Tommy; Zhou, Shun (American Physical Society (APS), 2018-04-05)
    We investigate possible interactions between neutrinos and massive scalar bosons via g ϕ ¯ ν ν ϕ (or massive vector bosons via g V ¯ ν γ μ ν V μ ) and explore the allowed parameter space of the coupling constant g ϕ (or g V ) ...
  • Cano, Zach; Wang, Shan-Qin; Dai, Zi-Gao; Wu, Xue-Feng (Hindawi Limited, 2017)
    We present a detailed report of the connection between long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) and their accompanying supernovae (SNe). The discussion presented here places emphasis on how observations, and the modelling of observations, have constrained ...
