In this paper, 0.7Pb(Mg(¹/₃)Nb(²/₃)O₃-0.3PbTiO₃ (PMN-PT) single crystal/epoxy 1/3 composite was used as the active material of the endoscopic ultrasonic radial array transducer, because this composite exhibited ultrahigh electromechanical coupling coefficient (k(t) = 0.81%), very low mechanical quality factor (Q(m) = 11) and relatively low acoustic(More)
Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), which is able to delineate internal structures of vessel wall with fine spatial resolution, has greatly enriched the knowledge of coronary atherosclerosis. A novel dual-frequency imaging method is proposed in this paper for intravascular imaging applications. A probe combined two ultrasonic transducer elements with different(More)
Amorphous black phosphorus (a-BP) ultrathin films are deposited by pulsed laser deposition. a-BP field-effect trans-istors, exhibiting high carrier mobility and moderate on/off current ratio, are demonstrated. Thickness dependence of the bandgap, mobility, and on/off ratio are observed. These results offer not only a new nanoscale member in the BP family,(More)
Visualization of the blood vessels can provide valuable morphological information for diagnosis and therapy strategies for cardiovascular disease. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) is able to delineate internal structures of vessel wall with fine spatial resolution. However, the developed IVUS is insufficient to identify the fibrous cap thickness and tissue(More)
With LaAlO3 surface modification by Pd nanoparticles, LaAlO3/SrTiO3 (LAO/STO) interfacial two-dimensional electron gas presents a giant optical switching effect with a photoconductivity on/off ratio as high as 750% under UV light irradiation. Pd nanoparticles with a size around 2 nm are deposited on top of the LAO surface, and the LAO/STO interface exhibits(More)
Electric-field-controllable luminescence of a ZnS:Mn/PMN-PT system is demonstrated. The light-emission of ZnS:Mn is caused by the piezoelectric potential, resulting from the converse piezoelectric effect of the PMN-PT substrate. Simultaneous generation of light and ultrasound waves is observed in this single system, which offers great potential to develop a(More)
This paper reports a simple label-free high-sensitive method for detecting low-concentration persistent organic pollutants and explosive materials. The proposed method combines surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and magnetomotive enrichment of the target molecules on the surface of Ag nanoparticles (NPs). This structure can be achieved through(More)
Nanocomposites with a film-on-substrate geometry usually suffer from a large clamping effect from the substrate, inhibiting the elastic-interaction-mediated "product" property such as the magnetoelectric response in piezoelectric-magnetostrictive systems. Here we report a self-assembling strategy to synthesize nanoscaled free-standing magnetoelectric(More)
Lead magnesium niobate-lead titanate single crystal 0.72Pb(Mg(13)Nb(23))O(3)-0.28PbTiO(3) (abbreviated as PMN-PT) was used to fabricate high performance ultrasonic phased-array transducer as it exhibited excellent piezoelectric properties. In this paper, we focus on the design and fabrication of a low-loss and wide-band transducer for medical imaging(More)
