The riparian forests along the Tarim River, habitats for Populus euphratica establishment, are subjected to frequent flooding. To elucidate adaptive strategies that enable this species to occupy the riparian ecosystem subjected to seasonal or permanent water-logging, we examined functional characteristics of plant growth, xylem water relations, leaf gas(More)
Soil water and salinity conditions of the riparian zones along the Tarim River, northwest China, have been undergoing alterations due to water use by human or climate change, which is expected to influence the riparian forest dominated by an old poplar, Populus euphratica. To evaluate the effects of such habitat alterations, we examined photosynthetic and(More)
Fe 2+-H 2 O 2 Fenton system is widely applied in water treatment nowadays, but the acidification and sludge generation are crucial problems to be solved. Herein, we report that Fe 3 O 4 /TiO 2 /C nanocomposites (FTCNCs) were able to catalyze the decomposition of H 2 O 2 at neutral pH and can be applied in dye decoloration. FTCNCs were prepared by(More)
A magnetically actuated cantilever structure was designed, fabricated, and tested. The actuation of the device is based on the interaction between a Permalloy film and an external magnetic field. The device is a rectangular SiO/sub 2/ platform 1 /spl mu/m thick supported by a pair of 1 /spl mu/m thick SiO/sub 2/ cantilevers. On the top of the platform is a(More)
