INTRODUCTION Recently there has been a tremendous growth in the popularity of wireless packet switched networks. In addition to the traditional voice services, wireless service providers and equipment manufacturers are working hard on offering higher speed data access over cellular wireless networks. The popularity of Internet access and the huge number of(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)
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)
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)
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)
