  Title Injuries in developing countries--how can we help? The role of orthopaedic surgeons Type Journal Article
  Year 2008 Publication Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research Abbreviated Journal Clin Orthop Relat Res  
  Volume (down) 466 Issue 10 Pages 2443-2450  
  Keywords Bone Nails/economics; Databases, Factual; *Developing Countries/economics; Education, Medical; *Fracture Fixation, Intramedullary/economics/education/instrumentation; Fractures, Bone/*surgery; Health Services Accessibility; Healthcare Disparities; Humans; *International Cooperation; Musculoskeletal System/*injuries; *Organizations, Nonprofit; *Physician's Role; Poverty; Program Development; Prosthesis Design  
  Abstract Each year nearly 5 million people worldwide die from injuries, approximately the number of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Ninety percent of these injuries occur in developing countries and that number is growing. Road traffic accidents account for 1.2 million of these 5 million deaths. For each death from trauma, three to eight more are permanently disabled. Orthopaedic surgeons should consider the victims of this epidemic by using their ability and capacity to treat these injuries. SIGN (Surgical Implant Generation Network, Richland, WA, USA) builds local surgical capability in developing countries by providing training and equipment to surgeons for use in treating the poor. It assists in treating long-bone fractures by using an intramedullary nail interlocking screw system. C-arm imaging, unavailable in many of these hospitals, is not necessary to accomplish interlocking. Surgery is performed primarily by local surgeons who record their cases on the SIGN surgical database. Discussion of these reports provides a means of communication and education among surgeons. This database demonstrates the capability of these surgeons. It also demonstrates that the SIGN intramedullary nail is safe for use in the developing world as it has been successful in treating 36,000 trauma patients.

  Title Real-time observation of valence electron motion Type Journal Article
  Year 2010 Publication Nature Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) 466 Issue Pages 739-743  
  Keywords Electron distribution, Motion, Valence (Theoretical chemistry)  
  Abstract The superposition of quantum states drives motion on the atomic and subatomic scales, with the energy spacing of the states dictating the speed of the motion. In the case of electrons residing in the outer (valence) shells of atoms and molecules which are separated by electronvolt energies, this means that valence electron motion occurs on a subfemtosecond to few-femtosecond timescale (1 fs = 10-15 s). In the absence of complete measurements, the motion can be characterized in terms of a complex quantity, the density matrix. Here we report an attosecond pump-probe measurement of the density matrix of valence electrons in atomic krypton ions. We generate the ions with a controlled few-cycle laser field and then probe them through the spectrally resolved absorption of an attosecond extreme-ultraviolet pulse, which allows us to observe in real time the subfemtosecond motion of valence electrons over a multifemtosecond time span. We are able to completely characterize the quantum mechanical electron motion and determine its degree of coherence in the specimen of the ensemble. Although the present study uses a simple, prototypical open system, attosecond transient absorption spectroscopy should be applicable to molecules and solid-state materials to reveal the elementary electron motions that control physical, chemical and biological properties and processes.

  Title Electron localization following attosecond molecular photoionization Type Journal Article
  Year 2010 Publication Nature Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume (down) 465 Issue Pages 763-766  
  Keywords  
  Abstract For the past several decades, we have been able to directly probe the motion of atoms that is associated with chemical transformations and which occurs on the femtosecond (1015-s) timescale. However, studying the inner workings of atoms and molecules on the electronic timescale-* has become possible only with the recent development of isolated attosecond (101 -s) laser pulses5. Such pulses have been used to investigate atomic photoexcitation and photoionization6,7 and electron dynamics in solids8, and in molecules could help explore the prompt charge redistribution and localization that accompany photoexcitation processes. In recent work, the dissociative ionization of H2 and D2 was monitored on femtosecond timescales9 and controlled using few-cycle near-infrared laser pulses". Here we report a molecular attosecond pump-probe experiment based on that work: H2 and D2 are dissociatively ionized by a sequence comprising an isolated attosecond ultraviolet pulse and an intense few-cycle infrared pulse, and a localization of the electronic charge distribution within the molecule is measured that depends-with attosecond time resolution-on the delay between the pump and probe pulses. The localization occurs by means of two mechanisms, where the infrared laser influences the photoionization or the dissociation of the molecular ion. In the first case, charge localization arises from quantum mechanical interference involving autoionizing states and the laser-altered wavefunction of the departing electron. In the second case, charge localization arises owing to laser-driven population transfer between different electronic states of the molecular ion. These results establish attosecond pump-probe strategies as a powerful tool for investigating the complex molecular dynamics that result from the coupling between electronic and nuclear motions beyond the usual Born- Oppenheimer approximation., Doi = 10.1038/nature09084, ISSN = 00280836, Keywords = Attosecond pulses, Molecular dynamics, Photoionization
