  • We investigate size dependent strengthening mechanisms in sputtered Fe/W multilayers with individual layer thickness, h, varying from 1 to 200 nm. Microstructure analyses reveal that Fe/W has incoherent bcc/bcc interface when h is greater than 5 nm. When h decreases to 1-2.5 nm, the interface becomes semicoherent, and Fe and W show significant lattice distortions comparing to their bulk counterpart due to interface constraint. The layer thickness dependent drastic variations in x-ray diffraction profiles are simulated well by using an analytical model. Film hardness increases with decreasing h, and approaches a maximum value of 12.5 GPa when h is 1more » nm. The layer thickness dependent film hardnesses are compared with analytical models. Koehler's image force plays a major role in determining the maximum strength of composites at smaller h.« less
  • Megakaryocytic macrocytosis was evaluated in mice after irradiation with 6.5 Gy 60Co gamma rays. During the second and third months after sublethal irradiation, one or more of the following abnormalities of thrombocytopoiesis was present: thrombocytopenia, megakaryocytopenia, macromegakaryocytosis, a shift to higher ploidies, and enlargement of cells within ploidy groups. After transfusion-induced thrombocytosis, reductions in megakaryocyte size were delayed or absent relative to non-irradiated mice, and there was more of a tendency to shift to lower values for megakaryocyte ploidy. Mice with radiation-induced megakaryocytopenia failed to show rebound thrombocytosis during recovery from immunothrombocytopenia, in spite of further increases in megakaryocyte sizemore » and ploidy. The findings support the hypotheses that numbers of megakaryocytes may influence the regulation of megakaryocytopoiesis even when there is an excess of platelets and that ploidy distribution is not the sole determinant of the average size of a population of megakaryocytes. After irradiation, persistent megakaryocytopenia may not severely affect platelet production under steady-state conditions, but the ability of the marrow to respond to homeostatic regulation is compromised.« less
  • As device miniaturization approaches nanoscale dimensions, interfaces begin to dominate electrical properties. Here the system archetype Au/SrTiO{sub 3} is used to examine the origin of size dependent transport properties along metal-oxide interfaces. We demonstrate that a transition between two classes of size dependent electronic transport mechanisms exists, defined by a critical size ε. At sizes larger than ε an edge-related tunneling effect proportional to 1/D (the height of the supported Au nanoparticle) is observed; interfaces with sizes smaller than ε exhibit random fluctuations in current. The ability to distinguish between these mechanisms is important to future developments in nanoscale devicemore » design.« less
