That type of sensor consists of solid spheres and is not compatible with microfabrication methods, but recently Tadigadapa and his team developed an innovative way to grow on-chip glass microspherical
shells with incredible sensitivities that potentially can be used for motion, temperature, pressure or biochemical sensing.
OCL 500 is a microspherical
agent in development for the treatment of highly vascularised tumours, including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC; liver cancer), renal cell carcinoma (RCC; kidney cancer) and uterine fibroids.
Bioclastic limestones packed with larger foraminifera mostly representing microspherical
forms of Lepidocyclina sp.
Good phase dispersion is seen for compatibilized blends, with small particle size (around 5 [micro]m); the phases are composed of microspherical
droplets dispersed in a matrix.
The formation process is a result of microspherical
dispersion of PP in cellulose acetate butyrate (CAB) matrix, elongation of micro-sized PP into ellipsoids under elongational flow field and coalescence of highly elongated ellipsoids [16, 17].
