This paper reports a study in automatic sentiment classification, i.e., automatically classifying documents as expressing positive or negative sentiments. The study investigates the effectiveness of using a machine-learning algorithm, support vector machine (SVM), on various text features to classify on-line product reviews into recommended (positive(More)
An heterologous expression of Vitreoscilla hemoglobin (VHb) for improving cell growth and recombinant protein production has been successfully demonstrated in various hosts, including Pichia pastoris. Lower temperature cultures can enhance target protein production in some studies of P. pastoris. In this study, the strategy of combining heterologous VHb(More)
Single-crystal indium antimony (InSb) nanowire was fabricated into middle-infrared photodetectors based on a metal-semiconductor-metal (M-S-M) structure. The InSb nanowires were synthesized using an electrochemical method at room temperature. The characteristics of the FET reveal an electron concentration of 3.6 × 1017 cm-3 and an electron mobility of(More)
We are the first group to use a simple direct ultraviolet light (UV, λ=365 nm, I=76 mW cm(-2)) in a decomposition process to fabricate ZnO nanowires on a flexible substrate using a zinc acetylacetonate hydrate precursor in ambient air. ZnO nanocrystal (or nanowire) production only requires three to ten minutes. A field emission scanning electron microscopy(More)
Vertically aligned single-crystal InSb nanowires were synthesized via the electrochemical method at room temperature. The characteristics of Fourier transform infrared spectrum revealed that in the syntheses of InSb nanowires, energy bandgap shifts towards the short wavelength with the occurrence of an electron accumulation layer. The current-voltage curve,(More)
The diet of Leptobotia elongata in the Yibin reach of the Yangtze River, China was investigated by stomach content analysis and by stable isotope analysis from muscle. The results of the two methods were agreement. Both stomach contents and isotope analysis indicated that L. elongata fed in spring mainly on plankton, shrimp and fish, and secondarily on(More)
We demonstrated the first application of a pyroelectric nanogenerator as a self-powered sensor (or active sensor) for detecting a change in temperature. The device consists of a single lead zirconate titanate (PZT) micro/nanowire that is placed on a thin glass substrate and bonded at its two ends, and it is packaged by polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS). By using(More)
