An enhanced dielectric permittivity of polyethylene and related polymers, while not overly sacrificing their excellent insulating properties, is highly desirable for various electrical energy storage applications. In this computational study, we use density functional theory (DFT) in combination with modified group additivity based high throughput(More)
The electronic band structure of MoS2, MoSe2, WS2, and WSe2, crystals has been studied at various hydrostatic pressures experimentally by photoreflectance (PR) spectroscopy and theoretically within the density functional theory (DFT). In the PR spectra direct optical transitions (A and B) have been clearly observed and pressure coefficients have been(More)
To detect Salmonella more efficiently and isolate strains more easily, a novel and simple detection method that uses an enrichment assay and two chromogenic reactions on a chromatography membrane was developed. Grade 3 chromatography paper is used as functionalized solid phase support (SPS), which contains specially optimized medium. One reaction for(More)

Imagery and perception are thought to be tightly linked, however, little is known about the interaction between imagery and the vestibular sense, in particular, self-motion perception. In this study, the observers were seated in the dark on a motorized chair that could rotate either to the right or to the left. Prior to the physical rotation, observers were(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy and safety of lamivudine (LAM) in stopping the vertical transmission of hepatitis B virus (HBV). Pregnant women with normal alanine transaminase (ALT) (n = 100) and with abnormal ALT (n = 100) who were positive for hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg), and with HBV DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) levels ≥1.0 ×(More)
