Breast cancer dormancy can be maintained by small numbers of micrometastases
(Cancer Research, 2010-12-31)
Late relapse of breast cancer can occur more than 25 years after primary diagnosis. During the intervening years between initial treatment and relapse, occult cancers are maintained in an apparent state of dormancy that ...
Microstructures of constrained shape memory alloy nanowires under thermal effects
(ASME 2010 Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems, SMASIS 2010, 2010-12-31)
In this paper, martensitic transformations in constrained Fe-Pd nanowires are studied using a mesoscopic model analyzed in detail numerically in our earlier papers. The dynamics of squareto-rectangular transformation is ...
Numerical analysis of complex systems evolution with phase transformations at different spatial scales
(Civil-Comp Proceedings, 2010-12-31)
This paper shows the existence of a critical dimension for finite length nanowires exhibiting shape memory effects. We give a brief survey of phase transformations, their classifications, and provide the basis of mathematical ...
Spin-orbit interaction in three-dimensionally bounded semiconductor nanostructures
(New Journal of Physics, 2010-12-31)
The structural inversion asymmetry-induced spin-orbit interaction of conduction band electrons in zinc-blende and wurtzite semiconductor structures is analysed allowing for a three-dimensional (3D) character of the external ...
