Predicting the Utility of Non-Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (NRIXS) for Standoff Explosives Detection ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The research reported here was a component of a three-year program at the University of Washington to improve fundamental knowledge that is important for developing new technologies and approaches to counter improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The focus of our component was to develop methods for identifying explosive materials using X-ray spectroscopy. All chemical explosives store energy in specific, high-energy chemical bonds. Detecting and classifying explosives is a matter of analyzing the structure of these bonds by some method, either direct or indirect. One direct method is to measure the X-ray emission spectrum of the relevant elements involved in the chemical bonds, such as nitrogen or oxygen in a typical explosive. A complementary technique is provided by a particular type of non-resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (NRIXS). To investigate the feasibility of using NRIXS to detect and identify explosives, we have attempted to predict the signal to noise from NRIXS for typical applications. To achieve this, a new Atomic Inelastic X-ray Scatter (AXIS) computer code was developed, tested, and its accuracy verified by synchrotron and laboratory measurements

Molecular Analysis of Olfactory Neural Circuits ( )

The olfactory system detects odorants that elicit diverse odor perceptions as well as pheromones that stimulate instinctive behaviors. We previously identified a large family of odorant receptors and determined how signals derived from those receptors are organized in the nose and then the olfactory bulb and cortex. To explore neural circuits in higher brain areas that control olfactory perception and behavior, new technologies are needed. We took the first steps in this direction in this project. First, we showed that a fusion protein containing Cre recombinase, the transfer domain of Diphtheria toxin, and barley lectin (BL), a transneuronal tracer, has Cre recombinase activity, setting the stage for its potential use as a regenerative transneuronal tracer for the visualization of complex neural circuits. Second, we prepared a series of inducer' and reporter' transgenic mouse lines that, when crossed, may allow the expression of a standard, or regenerative, transneuronal tracer in specific neurons to be controlled by an antibiotic or hormone analog. Third, we showed Cre-dependent, conditional expression of a transneuronal tracer in one of the reporter mouse lines. By crossing this line with mice expressing Cre in neurons with known functions (e.g. appetite), it will now be possible to elucidate neural circuits and genes that control specific functions
Understanding Olfaction: From Detection to Classification ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The overall objective of this research project is to support a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the function of the mammalian olfactory system across many different levels of scale. The members of the MURI collaboration represent disciplines ranging from computational chemistry, to molecular and cellular biology, to systems and computational neuroscience. Working together the objective is to shed light on structure/function relationships from the level of single olfactory receptor molecules to the function of neural circuits in olfactory regions of the mammalian brain, to olfactory related perception and cognition. In addition, the inclusion of faculty with chemical sensing and engineering expertise will allow information gleaned from biological olfactory systems to be applied to the construction of more sophisticated devices for detecting chemicals in the environment
