Arrays of microcantilevers are increasingly being used as physical, biological, and chemical sensors in various applications. To improve the sensitivity of microcantilever sensors, this study analyses and compares the deflection and vibration characteristics of rectangular and trapezoidal profile microcantilevers. Three models of each profile are(More)
To investigate if diabetes is more common in drug-induced parkinsonism patients. We performed a hospital-based retrospective case-control study on 44 drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP) patients, 177 Parkinson disease patients, and 176 acute stroke patients matched for age and sex who were seen over the same period at the same hospital. The frequency of(More)
A latency model for proxy cache simulations is presented. It classiies the object retrievals into eight classes according to the request and the reply types, and then decomposes each class into several time components such as the connection time and the transfer time. From this modeling, we can get reasonable retrieval latencies in the simulations for(More)
Hemimasticatory spasm (HMS) is a rare disorder of the trigeminal nerve characterized by paroxysmal involuntary contractions of the unilateral jaw-closing muscles. HMS has been frequently described in association with facial hemiatrophy or localized scleroderma. A 42-year-old female presented with involuntary paroxysmal spasms of the left face, of 6 months(More)
Twisted Copper Filaments (TCF) have been made by a yarn covering process in order to transmit signals and powers for electronic textiles. The 560 den. polyurethane filaments were covered in S-twist direction by urethane-coated copper wires. Final filaments were found to be changed in resonance frequency mainly due to the change of di-electricity and thus(More)
We fabricated titanium dioxide (TiO 2)-silica (SiO 2) nanocomposite structures with controlled morphology by a simple synthetic approach using cooperative sol-gel chemistry and block copolymer (BCP) self-assembly. Mixed TiO 2-SiO 2 sol-gel precursors were blended with amphiphilic poly(styrene-block-ethylene oxide) (PS-b-PEO) BCPs where the precursors were(More)
