We report on the design, fabrication, and measurement of ultrathin film a-Si:H solar cells with nanostructured plasmonic back contacts, which demonstrate enhanced short circuit current densities compared to cells having flat or randomly textured back contacts. The primary photocurrent enhancement occurs in the spectral range from 550 nm to 800 nm. We use(More)
A comprehensive structural/architectural evaluation of the PtRu (1:1) alloy and Ru@Pt core-shell nanoparticles (NPs) provides spatially resolved structural information on sub-5 nm NPs. A combination of extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS), X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES), pair distribution function (PDF) analyses, Debye function(More)
BACKGROUND Somatic mutations affecting components of the Ras-MAPK pathway are a common feature of cancer, whereas germline Ras pathway mutations cause developmental disorders including Noonan, Costello, and cardio-facio-cutaneous syndromes. These 'RASopathies' also represent cancer-prone syndromes, but the quantitative cancer risks remain unknown. METHODS(More)
The [As@Ni12@As20]3- ion was prepared from As7(3-) and Ni(COD)2 in ethylenediamine solutions and isolated as the Bu4P+ salt (As, arsenic; Ni, nickel; COD, cyclooctadiene; Bu, butyl; P, phosphorus). The anion contains an icosahedral [Ni12(mu12-As)]3- fragment that resides at the center of an As20 dodecahedral (fullerene) cage to give an onion-skin-like(More)
PtMo alloy and MoO(x)@Pt core-shell nanoparticles (NPs) were successfully synthesized by a chemical coreduction and sequential chemical reduction method, respectively. Both the carbon-supported alloy and core-shell NPs show substantially higher CO tolerance, compared to the commercialized E-TEK PtRu alloy and Pt catalyst. These novel nanocatalysts can be(More)
Electrochemical deposition (ECD) has been a primary method of metal plating for a variety of applications for nearly 100 years. Its popularity is due to its straightforward design, low cost, uniform results, and successful application to a wide range of metals and substrates. Many factors have been shown to influence the composition, texture, and chemical(More)
The book contains information from authentic and highly regarded sources. Reprinted material is quoted and credit is given when appropriate. A wide variety of references are listed. Reasonable efforts have been made to publish reliable data and information, but the authors and the publisher cannot assume responsibility for the validity of all materials or(More)
Bayon et al. (Reports, 9 March 2012, p. 1219) interpreted unusually high aluminum-potassium ratio values in an Atlantic sediment core as indicating anthropogenic deforestation around 2500 years before the present (B.P.). We argue that there is no terrestrial evidence for forest destruction by humans and that the third millennium B.P. rainforest crisis can(More)
Improved anode CO tolerance is a promising approach for integrating low-temperature PEM fuel cells with hydrocarbon fuel processors in cost-effective systems for portable and stationary power applications. PtSn@Pt core-shell nanoparticle electrocatalysts – created by applying cyclic potentials in the presence of CO to PtSn intermetallic nanoparticles in(More)
