The spatial scale of larval dispersal is a key predictor of marine metapopulation dynamics and an important factor in the design of reserve networks. Over the past 15 yr, studies of larval dispersal in coral reef fishes have generated accumulating evidence of consistently high levels of self-recruitment and local retention at various spatial scales. These(More)
Vertical nanowire arrays were prepared from an organic dye compound, 1,5-diaminoanthraquinone (DAAQ), on various types of substrates by a facile physical vapor transport method. It was found that the DAAQ grows much faster on the substrates with higher surface energies. Therefore, patterned growth of the nanowire arrays was achieved by modifying the(More)
Herein, we propose a new strategy of maskless lithographic approach to fabricate micro/nano-porous structures by phase separation of polystyrene (PS)/Polyethylene glycol (PEG) immiscible polymer blend. Its simple process only involves a spin coating of polymer blend followed by a development with deionized water rinse to remove PEG moiety, which provides an(More)
In this paper, 65 small molecules of HIV-1 non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs) were aligned by two different alignment methods (substructure-based and docking-based alignment) for the construction of three-dimensional quantitative structure–activity relationship models. And the molecular descriptors were calculated by comparative(More)
Efficient control of optical radiation at subwavelength scales plays important roles for various applications. Dielectric nanoparticles or dielectric shells with a large refractive index of n ~ 3-4, which are only achievable for limited semiconductors, are involved in most designs so far to control the scattering by overlapping the electric and magnetic(More)
We have demonstrated the plasmonic characteristics of an ultrathin tetrahedral amorphous carbon (ta-C) film coated with Ag nanoparticles. The simulation result shows that, under resonant and non-resonant excitations, the strongest plasmonic electric field of 1 nm ta-C coated Ag nanoparticle is not trapped within the ta-C layer but is released to its outside(More)
Recently, techniques involving random patterns have made it possible to control the light trapping of microstructures over broad spectral and angular ranges, which provides a powerful approach for photon management in energy efficiency technologies. Here, we demonstrate a simple method to create a wideband near-unity light absorber by introducing a dense(More)
Herein, we propose a highly efficient metallic optical incoupler for a quantum well infrared photodetector (QWIP) operating in the spectrum range of 14~16 μm, which consists of an array of metal micropatches and a periodically corrugated metallic back plate sandwiching a semiconductor active layer. By exploiting the excitations of microcavity modes and(More)
We developed a method to fabricate an array of silver non-planar nano-arc-gaps via inverted hemispherical colloidal lithography and shadow metal evaporation methods. It is found that there is a localized surface plasmon mode which results in extraordinary optical transmission. The electric field is strongly localized at the nano-arc-gap region and therefore(More)
This paper proposes a new frequent-independent nonlinear behavioral model for characterization both linear and nonlinear distortions of the quadrature modulators and compensators, which can be simplified as two real polynomials, and it has better modeling accuracy than the previous models. By combining with the indirect learning method, it is easy to(More)
