The present document addresses the topic of legal compliance of medical systems, that is, hardware and software devices medically used on people for clinical tests, diagnosis, study, and similar purposes, mainly with respect to EU law. The work briefly overviews the applicable laws and regulations and discusses the relevance on medical systems of concepts that General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) covers in a wider scope, such as data protection and transparency. The document looks into the practical meaning of legal compliance in a medical system and in the software that defines its behavior. Granted that any lawfulness decision is a prerogative of the judicial authority, the document concludes by suggesting currently-available means, such as official conformity checks, standards, but also conformity guidelines during development, to build a reasonably compliant medical system, or to check for its conformity.

In this work, we use a site-selective functionalization strategy to decorate plasmonic nanopores with fluorescent dyes. Using an easy and robust fabrication method, we manage to build plasmonic rings on top of dielectric nanotubes with different inner diameters. The modulation of the dimension of the nanopores allows us to tailor their field confinement and their Purcell Factor in the visible spectral range. In order to investigate how the changes in geometry influence the fluorescence emission rate efficiency, thiol-conjugated dyes are anchored on the plasmonic ring, thus forming a functional nanopore. We study the lifetime of ATTO 520 and ATTO 590 attached in two different configurations: single dye, and FRET pair. For the single dye configuration, we observe that the lifetime of both single dyes decreases as the size of the nanopore is reduced. The smallest nanopores yield an experimental Purcell Factor of 6. For the FRET pair configuration, we measure two regimes. For large nanopore sizes, the FRET efficiency remains constant. Whereas for smaller sizes, the FRET efficiency increases from 30 up to 45% with a decrease of the nanopore size. These findings, which have been supported by numerical simulations, may open new perspectives towards energy transfer engineering in plasmonic nanopores with potential applications in photonics and biosensing, in particular in single-molecule detection and sequencing.In this work, we use a site-selective functionalization strategy to decorate plasmonic nanopores with fluorescent dyes.

Here, we propose an easy method for site-selective deposition of two-dimensional (2D) material flakes onto nanoholes by means of electrophoretic deposition. This method can be applied to both simple flat nanostructures and complex three-dimensional structures incorporating nano- holes. The deposition method is here used for the decoration of large ordered arrays of plasmonic structures with either a single or few layers of MoS2 . In principle, the plasmonic field generated by the nanohole can significantly interact with the 2D layer leading to enhanced light−material interaction. This makes our platform an ideal system for hybrid 2D material/ plasmonic investigations. The engineered deposition of 2D materials on plasmonic nanostructures is useful for several important applications such as enhanced light emission, strong coupling, hot-electron generation, and 2D material sensors.

International foreign home migration is one of the main challenges in the 21st century also for rural areas. So far, rural areas have not been in the focus of research. The project DERREG, financed by EU FP7, has investigated this phenomenon. Qualitative interviews with international foreign home owners have been carried out in the rural border area of Merzig-Wadern, Saarland in the South-West of Germany. The article shows results of the biographical interviews on the housing situation and the satisfaction of the migrants. How do the migrants feel in the rural Saarland? How do they assess their situation as foreign home owners? According to the short literature review, description of the case study area and research paradigm these questions are pursued. [less ▲]

In Luxembourg, there were 130,091 residential buildings at the time of the census. Single family homes are the prevalent type of buildings. They represent 83.5% of all residential buildings. Of the single family homes, detached houses are predominant (37.9% of all residential buildings), followed by single family semi-detached houses (25.0%) and single-family homes in a row (20.6%). Apartment buildings represent only 12.5% of total residential buildings. However, the share of the population living in single family homes is only 62.6%, while 32.7% of the population is living in apartment buildings. In the 208,565 private households, there are 503,280 people, that is to say, on average, 2.41 persons per household. One third of households (33.3%) are single households. 27.4% of residents live in two-person households and 15.9% in households of three people. The real estate market is moving. 9.4% of people surveyed in Luxembourg live less than one year in their home. 34.1% live in their homes for less than 5 years. More than two thirds of households (69.0%) are homeowners, 28.3% of households live in rental and 2.7% live in homes without paying rent. The percentage varies widely by nationality, but also by municipalities. 84.5% of Luxembourgers are homeowners. The percentage of owners is generally higher in municipalities located at a certain distance from the center. In Luxembourg-City, only 47.9% are homeowners. [less ▲]

Unsicherheit führt zu Depressionen Ein Team der Universität Luxemburg hat knapp 100 Schlaganfallpatienten besucht und sich ein Bild von deren Lebenssituation verschafft. Viele der Befragten sorgen sich um ihre Zukunft und wünschen sich mehr medizinische Aufklärung. Häufig neigen sie zu Depressionen, die ihren Gesundheitszustand weiter verschlechtern. Mit einem Schlag ist alles anders. Durch einen Schlaganfall verändert sich das Leben abrupt. Nach der traumatischen Erfahrung gilt es grundlegende Fertigkeiten wie Laufen und Sprechen neu zu erlernen und nicht selten endet mit der. Erkrankung die berufliche Karriere. In etwa drei Viertel der Fälle bleiben Einschränkungen bestehen und stellen neue Anforderungen an den Alltag. Gesundheitspsychologen der Universität Luxemburg haben knapp 100 Schlaganfallpatienten besucht und sie zu ihren persönlichen Sorgen und Problemen interviewt. Die Befragten waren alle ca. 65 Jahre alt, stammten aus dem Großherzogtum Luxemburg und hatten vor etwa zwei Jahren einen Schlaganfall erlitten. Die ungewisse Situation wirft viele Fragen und Sorgen auf Wie sich herausstellte leiden die Schlaganfallpatienten vor allem an mangelnder Information und der Ungewissheit ihrer Situation. Sie quälen sich mit ungeklärten Fragen zu ihrer gesundheitlichen Zukunft und wissen oft nicht, woher sie Hilfe erhalten können. Häufig misstrauen sie den Informationen, die sie erhalten oder wünschen sich bessere medizinische Aufklärung. Zusätzlich scheint eine fehlende Koordination zwischen den Pflegekräften Unsicherheit zu schüren. Besonders Geringverdiener und Patienten mit niedrigem Bildungsniveau zeigen sich von der ungewissen Situation beeinträchtigt. Leichter haben es Patienten, die weiterhin einer beruflichen Tätigkeit nachgehen oder Rückhalt von Familie und Freunden erhalten. Auf den Schlaganfall folgt die Depression Häufig stießen die Forscher bei ihren Recherchen auf Zeichen depressiver Erkrankungen wie Schlafprobleme, emotionale Störungen, Kommunikationsschwierigkeiten und Müdigkeit. Sie sehen darin eine ernsthafte Gefährdung für die gesundheitliche Entwicklung der Patienten. „Depression ist dafür bekannt, physische, mentale und soziale Fähigkeiten einzuschränken und das Risiko von Behinderungen und frühzeitigem Tod zu erhöhen“, erläutert Frau Professor Michéle Baumann von der Universität Luxemburg. Mit Hilfe der Studie möchte sie die Fragen und Bedürfnisse der Patienten ermitteln und so den Teufelskreis aus Krankheit, Sorgen und Depression durchbrechen. [less ▲]

Familienangehörige sind die wichtigsten informellen Pflegepersonen alter Menschen. Bisherige Forschung hat v.a. aus stress-theoretischer Sicht die Belastungen und deren negative Folgen für die Gesundheit der Pflegenden thematisiert. Stress-theoretische Ansätze können aber die inzwischen gut dokumentierten positiven Erfahrungen und Entwicklungsgewinne pflegender Angehöriger nur unzureichend erklären. Der vorliegende Beitrag untersucht die weitergehenden heuristischen Vorzüge einer entwicklungspsychologischen Sicht. Methoden: Literaturrecherchen. Analyse der Situation pflegender Angehöriger mit Kernkonzepten der Lebensspannen-Entwicklungspsychologie (z.B. kritische Lebensereignisse, Entwicklungsziele, intentionale Selbstentwicklung). Ergebnisse: Eine entwicklungspsychologische Sicht erschließt (1) negative, positive und als ambivalent erlebte Aspekte des Pflegens, auch als Funktion von Alter und Phase im Lebenslauf, (2) wie die facettenreiche Pflegesituation diverse Wünsche und Ziele pflegender Angehöriger bzgl. eigener Entwicklung und der der Gepflegten teils frustriert, teils erfüllt, und wie daraus Emotionen und Handlungsbereitschaften erwachsen, (3) wie sich Wünsche, Ziele, Kompetenzen und Persönlichkeitsmerkmale pflegender Angehöriger durch Pflegeerfahrungen weiterentwickeln. Schlussfolgerungen: Kernkonzepte der Entwicklungspsychologie der Lebensspanne erlauben eine umfassendere Analyse der Situation pflegender Angehöriger als bisher und versprechen weitere Fortschritte.

Interdisciplinary product development is faced with the collaboration of diverse roles and a multitude of interrelated artifacts. Traditional and sequential process models cannot deal with the long-lasting and dynamic behavior of the development processes of today. Moreover, development processes have to be tailored to the needs of the projects, which are usually distributed today. Thus, keeping these projects on track from a methodology point of view is difficult. In order to deal with these challenges, this paper will present a novel method engineering and enactment approach. It combines the ideas of workflow technologies and product line engineering for method engineering as well as agent technology for the development process enactment. [less ▲]
