The goal of the work is a comparison of the electrical circuits of experimental installations for obtaining micro- and nanosecond discharges in gas bubbles in water, as well as a comparison of the experimental results obtained for disinfecting water using such discharges.
This is because the pulse duration they offer is typically shorter than the time for heat to flow out of the laser interaction zone, even in metals, so peripheral thermal effects are vastly reduced, compared to nanosecond lasers.
The clinical endpoint for picosecond lasers is the same as for nanosecond lasers: epidermal whitening.
In contrast, the pores generated by a nanosecond pulsed electric field are only about 1 nanometer wide, which are often named as "nanopores." Nanopores have little permeability to propidium iodide (a macromolecule dye used to stain DNA) [40] but show permeability to small inorganic ions, distinguishing from conventional electroporation.
The nanosecond is always a favorite story and so is her tagline, "Remember, it's always easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission."
At light speed, neutrinos would traverse the 730-kilometer distance in 2.44 milliseconds; after accounting for delays due to processing the signals, the researchers calculated that the neutrinos arrived 60 nanoseconds early.
THEY'VE only been together for a nanosecond but I'm already detecting trouble in paradise for T4 man bike STEVE JONES and his Heroes squeeze HAYDEN PANETTIERE.

You know the things, promising the viewer the opportunity to collect figurines (never figures) of traffic wardens from around the world, or offering the lucky reader the promise of being able to build their own three-bedroomed detached house with garage--though the small print does state for a fleeting nanosecond that the house is only fit for the traffic warden figurine and their family, and is not normal size.
Alongside a host of other full-race videos illustrating the narrative leading up to the Breeders' Cup - and barely a nanosecond after the actual event itself - racefans visiting breederscup.com have been able to watch the mighty Curlin win the Jockey Club Gold Cup at Belmont Park on Saturday, outstripping Cigar as all-time US money winner.
What really did him in was not the Minneapolis Airport but the Boise Statesman, which was sitting on years of research that struck the fear of GOP in him (i.e., his Republican colleagues, who ditched him in a DC nanosecond).
Third generation auctioneer Mike Litherland said it took him a "nanosecond" to agree the sale for his city-centre site.
Yet, he can change the future - and the destinies of everyone around him - and can continue to do so, nanosecond by nanosecond, such as dodging bullets or knowing when to duck an oncoming punch (a la The Matrix).

This involves going from zero to about 80 miles an hour in a nanosecond, so by the time the ride is over, it takes your teeth and the contents of your stomach several seconds to catch up.
