With the expert hand of a grasp storyteller, Clive Cussler has woven in Cyclops his most complicated and suspenseful plot, linking the interesting behind-the-headlines evidence of big name Wars and the chilly warfare with a compelling tale of greed and passion—and a mystery so awesome that it's been saved from the President of the USA himself. the unusual chain of occasions that starts off with LeBaron's disappearance explodes right into a conflict among the Soviet Union and the us for ownership of the moon and ends with a blazing, cliff-hanging race opposed to time to avoid an grand tragedy. It nearly defeats Dirk Pitt and takes him from the interior councils of the White condominium to a war of words with Fidel Castro himself...

The argon (Ar) ions present in the plasma are accelerated towards the target. Since the kinetic energy of these ions is sufficient to remove target atoms, some of them will diffuse through the reactor and are subsequently deposited on the substrate. Interestingly, the resulting surface structure of the substrate is determined mainly by the process parameters and not - or to a lesser degree - by the material itself. For our experiments the noble metal iridium was used as target material due to its high chemical stability.
Equivalent electrical circuit of the metal-electrolyte interface A. BOLz et al. 42 intensities when detecting intracardiac signals. Since the parameters RF and RL cannot be significantly reduced, the strategy has to be maximizing the specific capacity Cp because the impedance is inversely proportional to Cpo The well-known polarization artifact voltage following a pacing stimulus results in another requirement with regard to Cpo The polarization artifact voltage U is given by U where QSt / Cp (1) the capacity of the Helmholtz double layer and the total charge delivered by the stimulus.
The Technical Realization In lead technology two basic approaches are known to enhance the Helmholtz capacity: By providing a suitable redox pair on the surface of the electrode an unhindered charge transfer between the metal and the electrolyte is possible. The most common example for such a system is the Ag-AgCl electrode . However, this system suffers from the disadvantage that ions diffuse to the surrounding tissue and may induce chronic inflammatory and toxic reactions . Thus, longterm stability of this type of electrode is not given.
