One of the key challenges of next-generation wireless networks (such as enhanced general packet radio service) is the ability to provide different grades of quality of service to users. Weighted fair queueing (WFQ) is a popular scheduling algorithm to guarantee bounded delay, guaranteed throughput, and fairness. However, adapting the WFQ scheduler to(More)
A pre-cryogenic holder (cryo-holder) facilitating cryo-specimen observation under a conventional scanning electron microscope (SEM) is described. This cryo-holder includes a specimen-holding unit (the stub) and a cryogenic energy-storing unit (a composite of three cylinders assembled with a screw). After cooling, the cryo-holder can continue supplying(More)
A polymer solar cell based on poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT)/iron disulfide (FeS2) nanocrystal (NC) hybrid is presented. The FeS2 NCs of 10 nm in diameter were homogeneously blended with P3HT to form an active layer of a solar cell. An extended red light harvesting up to 900 nm resulting from the NCs in the device has been demonstrated, compared to a typical(More)
Hollow silica spheres with mesostructured shells (HSSMS) were prepared with a vesicle template of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide-sodium dodecyl sulfate-Pluronic P123 (C(16)TMAB-SDS-EO(20)PO(70)EO(20)) at a SDS/C(16)TMAB ratio of 0.6-0.8 following a fast silicification in dilute silicate solution at pH approximately 5.0. The mesostructure of the shell is(More)
Free-standing thin sheet form of mesoporous silica materials with perpendicular orientation is a much desired materials for its possible applications in catalysis, mask, and separation. A three component amphiphile system of sodium dodecyl sulfate/hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide/pluronic-123(C(16)TMAB/SDS/P123) was employed to template the condensation(More)
Mesoporous silica helical fibers in many different shapes have been synthesized in a highly dilute silicate solution at pH approximately 2.0 by using CnTMAB-SDS-P123 (n = 14-18) ternary surfactant as a template. The mesoporous silica helical fibers possess a well-ordered hexagonal mesostructure, high surface area, and large pore volume. Thus, the microtome(More)
