Mixed silanes, 3-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane and 3-methacryloxypropyltrimethoxysilane, were used as a primer for adhesion of poly(methyl methacrylate) to stainless steel and glass plate. The tensile bond strength of the resin to those substrates was measured after immersion in water at 37 degrees C for 3 days. The mean bond strengths of the resin to the(More)
Combining linear absorption and nonlinear third harmonic generation (THG) experiments, we investigate details of the electronic structure of the highly correlated electronic system in La2CuO4. We demonstrate strong THG mainly due to the charge transfer excitation from O (2p(sigma)) to Cu (3d(x2-y2)). The THG spectrum shows pronounced features due to(More)
We studied the energetics and electronic structure of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanoribbons with hydrogenated and clean edges with respect to the detailed edge shapes using density functional theory. Our calculations showed that the stability of h-BN edges strongly depends on the edge termination. In the case of hydrogenated edges, the formation energy(More)
Molecular composite PMMA resin (Oct-PPTA-PMMA) can be reinforced with poly-N-octyl-p-phenylene terephthalamide (Oct-PPTA) as rigid core molecule. Compounding 3 wt% of Oct-PPTA to PMMA increased compressive, diametral and bending strength by 10 to 15%. The molecular interaction between Oct-PPTA as the core molecule and PMMA as a polar matrix and polystyrene(More)
Reflection electron microscope studies of surface dynamic processes are reviewed and illustrated with recent new observations. They include: surface electromigration and current dependent structures of Si surfaces; surface etching by oxidation of Si surface; and growth of two dimensional alloyed adsorbate by co-deposition of metals on Si surface. The(More)
We studied the polarity of h-BN nano-flakes in terms of their edge geometries, edge hydrogen termination, and uniaxial strain by evaluating their electrostatic potential using density functional theory. Our calculations have shown that the polarity of the nanoribbons is sensitive to their edge shape, edge termination, and uniaxial tensile strain. Polarity(More)
The influence of the weight average molecular weight and the molecular weight distribution of poly(acrylic acid) on the tensile bond strength of polycarboxylate cement was studied. The bond strength of the cement significantly affected not only the mean molecular weight but also the distribution. The tensile bond strength of the cement prepared from an(More)
