In an attempt to assess the level of quinolone resistance and its association with other antimicrobial resistance in faecal Escherichia coli isolated from routine outpatient specimens in Hong Kong, ciprofloxacin-supplemented MacConkey agar was used to screen for resistant isolates. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing of the isolates was done by VITEK 2 and(More)
We have produced ultrathin lead (Pb) nanowires in the 6 nm pores of SBA-15 mesoporous silica substrates by chemical vapor deposition. The nanowires form regular and dense arrays. We demonstrate that bulk Pb (a type-I superconductor below Tc = 7.2 K with a critical field of 800 Oe) can be tailored by nanostructuring to become a type-II superconductor with an(More)
The transition metal carbide superconductor Sc(3)CoC(4) may represent a new benchmark system of quasi-one-dimensional (quasi-1D) superconducting behavior. We investigate the superconducting transition of a high-quality single crystalline sample by electrical transport experiments. Our data show that the superconductor goes through a complex dimensional(More)
The voltage–current (V–I) characteristics in superconductingmonolayer FeSefilm on SrTiO3 (100) under differentmagnetic fields are investigated. The zero-fieldV–Iresult exhibits signatures of a Berezinski–Kosterlitz–Thouless transition, a characteristic of two-dimensional(2D)superconductors. Under an appliedmagnetic field, with current density lower than(More)
Sn is a classical superconductor on the border between type I and type II with critical temperature of 3.7 K. We show that its critical parameters can be dramatically increased if it is brought in the form of loosely bound bundles of thin nanowires. The specific heat displays a pronounced double phase transition at 3.7 K and 5.5 K, which we attribute to the(More)
