Graphene has been demonstrated in many biomedical applications and its potentials for neural interfacing. Emerging concerns on graphene, as a biomedical material, are its biocompatibility and how biologically targeted tissue/cells respond to it. Relatively few studies attempted to address the interactions of graphene or its derivatives with the(More)
One of the key goals in nerve tissue engineering is to develop new materials which cause less or no neuroinflammation. Despite the rapid advances of using graphene as a neural interface material, it still remains unknown whether graphene could provoke neuroinflammation or not, and whether and how the topographical features of graphene influence the(More)
Neural stem cell (NSC) based therapy provides a promising approach for neural regeneration. For the success of NSC clinical application, a scaffold is required to provide three-dimensional (3D) cell growth microenvironments and appropriate synergistic cell guidance cues. Here, we report the first utilization of graphene foam, a 3D porous structure, as a(More)
In a physically confined environment, interfacial interactions, symmetry breaking, structural frustration and confinement-induced entropy loss can play dominant roles in determining molecular organization. Here we present a systematic study of the confined assembly of silica-surfactant composite mesostructures within cylindrical nanochannels of varying(More)
One of the key challenges for neural tissue engineering is to exploit supporting materials with robust functionalities not only to govern cell-specific behaviors, but also to form functional neural network. The unique electrical and mechanical properties of graphene imply it as a promising candidate for neural interfaces, but little is known about the(More)
In this paper, a parametrization of two-dimensional wavelet filter system is used as a method to protect wavelet-based watermarks against unauthorized detection. This system is developed in terms of a novel transformation-Shift Unitary transform (SUT) of Conjugate Quadrature filter (CQF). The commonly used wavelet filters are only special cases of this(More)
In this paper, three complex fuzzy reasoning schemes: Principal Axis, Phase Parameter and Concurrence reasoning scheme are introduced. These reasoning schemes maybe sustain to develop practical applications for complex fuzzy logic and complex fuzzy reasoning methods. A variety of conjunction operators and implication operators may be selected to compose the(More)
We develop graphene-based devices fabricated by alternating current dielectrophoresis (ac-DEP) for highly sensitive nitric oxide (NO) gas detection. The novel device comprises the sensitive channels of palladium-decorated reduced graphene oxide (Pd-RGO) and the electrodes covered with chemical vapor deposition (CVD)-grown graphene. The highly sensitive,(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs), critical biomarkers of acute and chronic diseases, play key regulatory roles in many biological processes. As a result, there is great demand for robust assay platforms to enable an accurate and efficient detection of low-level miRNAs in complex biological samples. In this work, a label-free and Au nanoparticles (NPs) quenching-based(More)
Porous three-dimensional graphene (3DG) prepared by chemical vapor deposition, was utilized as a matrix to support nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) particles. The strategies to manipulate the morphology, distribution and size of nZVI particles on the 3DG support were demonstrated. The immobilized nZVI particles with a size of 100 nm and dense deposition(More)
