Biologic Effects of Light 1998: Proceedings of a Symposium Basel, Switzerland November 1–3, 1998

It's awesome how a lot we take without any consideration the super strength and energy that the solar offers earth's population. As we input the hot millennium, it's important to check how our ancestors perceived the biologic results of solar, and the way technological know-how and drugs have complex our wisdom concerning the biologic results of sunshine.

Rossnagel: J. Appl. Phys. jp Abstract. A super-resolution near-field structure (super-RENS) has an additional mask layer in the usual phase-change optical disk. A thin layer of antimony (Sb) film or a silver oxide (AgOx) layer is used as a mask layer. By focusing a laser beam, a transparent aperture in the Sb layer and a light-scattering center in the AgOx layer are formed transitionally, whose diameters are smaller than that of the laser beam spot.

Silver Oxide Film In this chapter, the thermal decomposition process of undoped and metaldoped Ag–O films is studied by composition analysis and optical transmittance measurements. Various kinds of metals (Co, Pd, Pt and Au) were doped into Ag–O film to examine on modification of the process. Super-RENS disks with a metal-doped mask layer were prepared, and the effect of the layer on the super-resolutional readout was evaluated.
