We describe a new, high-energy (420 kV), large-scale (0.45 m in diameter, 4 m in height) x-ray tomograph developed to investigate gas and liquid flow through fixed bed like absorption, distillation and reactive distillation columns. The first results obtained with this set-up on test objects (physical phantoms), such as a cylindrical container filled with water or a large diameter structured metallic packing, validate the technique as a quantitative tool for geometrical measurements. Very detailed two-dimensional (21)) and three-dimensional (3D) images of a 0.09 m diameter KATAPAK-SP 12, a reactive distillation packing, are presented. Quantitative information relative to liquid hold-up distribution may be obtained from tomographic imaging performed on an irrigated column packed with this element. [less ▲]

Most debris disks resolved so far show extended structures located at tens to hundreds AU from the host star, and are more analogous to our solar system's dusty Kuiper belt than to the AU-scale zodiacal disk inside our solar system's asteroid belt. Over the last few years however, a few hot debris disks have been detected around a handful of main sequence stars thanks to the advance of infrared interferometry. The grain populations derived from these observations are quite intriguing, as they point towards very high dust replenishment rates, high cometary activity or major collisional events. In this talk, we review the ongoing efforts to detect bright exozodiacal disks with precision near-infrared interferometry in both hemispheres with CHARA/FLUOR and VLTI/PIONIER. We discuss preliminary statistical trends on the occurrence of bright exozodi around nearby main sequence stars and show how this information could be used to constrain the global architecture and evolution of debris disks.

The SOHO (SOlar and Heliospheric Observatory) satellite was launched on December 2nd 1995. After arriving at the Earth-Sun (L1) Lagrangian point on February 14th 1996, it began to continuously observe the Sun. As one of the instruments onboard SOHO, the EIT (Extreme ultraviolet Imaging Telescope) images the Sun's corona in 4 EUV wavelengths. The He II filter at 304 AË images the chromosphere and the base of the transition region at a temperature of 5 - 8 x 10^4 K; the Fe IX-X filter at 171 AË images the corona at a temperature of ~ 1.3 x 10^6 K; the Fe XII filter at 195 AË images the quiet corona outside coronal holes at a temperature of ~ 1.6 x 10^6 K; and the Fe XV filter at 284 AË images active regions with a temperature of ~ 2.0 x 10^6 K. About 5000 images have been obtained up to the present. In this paper, we describe also some aspects of the telescope and the detector performance for application in the observations. Images and movies of all the wavelengths allow a look at different phenomena present in the Sun's corona, and in particular, magnetic field reconnection. [less ▲]

If a magnet of microscopic dimensions is brought in close proximity to a superconductor, the quantized nature of their interaction due to the creation of flux quanta in the superconducting system becomes noticeable. Herein, we directly image, via scanning Hall microscopy, the vortex-antivortex pairs in a superconducting film created by micromagnets. The number of antivortices at equilibrium conditions can be changed either by tuning the magnetic moment of the magnets or by annihilation with externally induced vortices. We demonstrate that small ac field excitations shake the antivortices sitting next to the micromagnets whereas no sizable motion is observed for the vortices sitting on top of the magnets, clearly revealing the different mobility of these two vortex species. A metastable state, which is obtained by applying a field after the system has been cooled down below the superconducting transition, shows a complex graded distribution of coexisting vortices and antivortices forming an intertwined critical state.

Background: The availability of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) has considerably changed the management of Philadelphia chromosome positive leukemia. The BCR-ABL inhibitor imatinib is also known to inhibit the tyrosine kinase of the stem cell factor receptor, c-Kit. Nilotinib is 30 times more potent than imatinib towards BCR-ABL in vitro. Studies in healthy volunteers and patients with chronic myelogenous leukemia or gastrointestinal stromal tumors have shown that therapeutic doses of nilotinib deliver drug levels similar to those of imatinib. The aim of this study was to compare the inhibitory effects of imatinib and nilotinib on proliferation, differentiation, adhesion, migration and engraftment capacities of human cord blood CD34+ cells. Design and Methods: After a 48-hour cell culture with or without TKIs, CFC, LTC-IC, migration, adhesion and cell cycle analysis were performed. In a second time, the impact of these TKIs on engraftment was assessed in a xenotransplantation model using NOD/SCID/IL-2Rc (null) mice. <br />Results: TKIs did not affect LTC-IC frequencies despite in vitro inhibition of CFC formation due to inhibition of CD34+ cell cycle entry. Adhesion of CD34+ cells to retronectin was reduced in the presence of either imatinib or nilotinib but only at high concentrations. Migration through a SDF-1a gradient was not changed by cell culture in the presence of TKIs. Finally, bone marrow cellularity and human chimerism were not affected by daily doses of imatinib and nilotinib in a xenogenic transplantation model. No significant difference was seen between TKIs given the equivalent affinity of imatinib and nilotinib for KIT. <br />Conclusions: These data suggest that combining non-myeloablative conditioning regimen with TKIs starting the day of the transplantation could be safe.
