This paper discusses a finite element formulation with an absorbing boundary condition to simulate acoustic scattering phenomena in a general situation, that is, including density as well as sound velocity variations of single and multi-scatterers of arbitrary two-dimensional cross sections. In this model, a Galerkin finite element formulation is(More)
As one of the most important two-dimensional (2D) materials, BN nanosheets attracted intensive interest in the past decade. Although there are many methods suitable for the preparation of BN sheets, finding a cheap and nontoxic way for their mass and high-quality production is still a challenge. Here we provide a highly effective and cheap way to synthesize(More)
Boron nanowires (BNWs) are considered as an ideal optoelectronic nanomaterial, but controlling them in identical growth mode and large-area patterns is technically challenging. Here, large-scale BNW patterns with a uniform base-up growth mode are successfully fabricated by choosing Ni film as the catalyst. Moreover, they exhibit low turn-on field (4.3 V/μm)(More)
Boron nanowires (BNWs) may have potential applications as reinforcing materials because B fibers are widely known for their excellent mechanical performance. However until now, there have been only few reports on the mechanical properties of individual BNW, and in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) investigations shining a light on their fracture(More)
There are more or less dopants or defects existing in nanomaterials, so they usually have different conduct-types even for the same substrate. Therefore, fast identification of the conduction-type of nanomaterials is very essential for their practical application in functional nanodevices. Here we use the field emission (FE) technique to research(More)
Three types of fluorinated carbon, all in their original form and upon sequential chemical lithiations via n-butyllithium, were investigated by (13)C and (19)F solid-state NMR methods. The three starting CF(x) materials [where x = 1 (nominally)] were fiber based, graphite based, and petroleum coke based. The aim of the current study was to identify, at the(More)
Ultra-long AlN nanowire arrays are prepared by chemical vapor deposition, and the photoconductive performances of individual nanowires are investigated in our self-built measurement system. Individual ultra-long AlN nanowire (UAN) exhibits a clear photoconductive effect under different excited lights. We attribute the positive photocurrent response of(More)
