The narrowest armchair graphene nanoribbon (AGNR) with five carbons across the width of the GNR (5-AGNR) was synthesized on Au(111) surfaces via sequential dehalogenation processes in a mild condition by using 1,4,5,8-tetrabromonaphthalene as the molecular precursor. Gold-organic hybrids were observed by using high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy(More)
PURPOSE Tracheal diverticulum (TD) is a rare, nonspecific symptom that is commonly associated with other malformations in clinical presentation and appearance on imaging. The case presented and the literature review performed highlight the importance of combining 3 D reconstruction technology and computerized Tomography (CT) results to better characterize(More)
A robust model-based lane detection and tracking algorithm has been studied. Initially, Dynamic programming (DP) and Hough transform are employed to detect lane boundaries. The Dynamic programming is known to be a powerful algorithm for optimal path finding on a cost field. Utilizing the intensities of edge image as costs of the DP, most likely road(More)
In this paper, the authors present a system structure for FPGA-based SOPC (system on programmable chip) design which uses an embedded processor to do scheduling to the HDL modules as its hard tasks. This kind of structure is implemented on the NIOS-II system offered by ALTERA and uses muC/OS-II as a real-time kernel in the embedded soft processor. The(More)
Organic-inorganic perovskite is a promising class of materials for photovoltaic applications and light emitting diodes. However, so far commercialization is still impeded by several drawbacks. Atomic-scale effects have been suggested to be possible causes, but an unequivocal experimental view at the atomic level is missing. Here, we present a(More)
Rational control of molecular ordering on surfaces and interfaces is vital in supramolecular chemistry and nanoscience. Here, a systematic scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) study for controlling the self-assembly behavior of alkoxylated benzene (B-OC(n)) molecules on a HOPG surface is presented. Three different phases have been observed and, of great(More)
Surface-supported coupling reactions between 1,3,5-tris(4-formylphenyl)benzene and aromatic amines have been investigated on Au(111) using scanning tunneling microscopy under ultra-high-vacuum conditions. Upon annealing to moderate temperatures, various products, involving the discrete oligomers and the surface covalent organic frameworks, are obtained(More)
Adsorbates on metals, but not previously on semiconductors, have been observed to display long-range repulsive interactions. On metals, due to efficient dissipation, the repulsions are weak, typically on the order of 5 meV at 10 Å. On the 7×7 reconstruction of the Si(111) surface, charge transport through the surface has been demonstrated by others using(More)
The formation of additional phenyl rings on surfaces is of particular interest because it allows for the building-up of surface covalent organic frameworks. In this work, we show for the first time that the cyclotrimerization of acetyls to aromatics provides a promising approach to 2D conjugated covalent networks on surfaces under ultrahigh vacuum. With the(More)
The adsorption of small molecules (NH3, N2, H2 and CH4) on all-boron fullerene B40 is investigated by density functional theory (DFT) and the non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) for its potential application in the field of single-molecular gas sensors. The high adsorption energies (-1.09 to -0.75 eV) of NH3 on different adsorption sites of the B40(More)
