Sophora davidii is an important leguminous scrub that is widely used for revegetation in the semiarid Loess Plateau and other arid valley areas of China, where it usually suffers drought stress. This study investigated the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (Glomus mosseae and Glomus constrictum) and water stress on the growth and physiological(More)
Herein graphene quantum dot (GQD), a graphene material with lateral dimension less than 100 nm, is explored to dope PPy on F-doped tin oxide glass as an efficient counter electrode for high-performance dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). The GQDs-doped PPy film has a porous structure in comparison to the densely structured plain PPy, and displays higher(More)
Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) is a pioneer legume for afforestation in soft rock areas of the Loess Plateau, China. Our study aimed to assess the effects of Glomus mosseae and Rhizobium strain NWYC129 on the growth of black locust seedlings and the quality of weathered soft rock soils under pot conditions. Black locust seedlings could form strong(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the adaptation of A. hospitalis W1 to oligotrophic and acidic hot spring environments at the whole genome level. METHODS We annotated the gene functions and constructed metabolic pathways of strain W1 by using different databases, such as NCBI non-redundant database (NRDB), UniProt, Sulfolobus protein database and Kyoto Encyclopedia of(More)
Three eye-movement experiments were conducted to examine how the complexity of characters in Chinese words (i.e., number of strokes per character) influences their processing and eye-movement behaviour. In Experiment 1, English speakers with no significant knowledge of Chinese searched for specific low-, medium-, and high-complexity target characters in a(More)
Foxtail millet (Setaria italica L.) is an ancient domesticated crop grown in arid and semi-arid Africa and Eurasian continent. This study investigated the effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi (Glomus intraradices) and water stress on the growth and reactive oxygen metabolism of foxtail millet under greenhouse pot conditions. After two soil water(More)
This communication presents a novel electrolyte gated field-effect transistor based on a blend of dibenzo-tetrathiafulvalene and polystyrene deposited through bar-assisted meniscus shearing. This technique allows the fabrication of high performing electronic devices suitable for (bio)sensing applications and might capture industrial interest due to its(More)
Since the first demonstration, the electrolyte-gated organic field-effect transistors (EGOFETs) have immediately gained much attention for the development of cutting-edge technology and they are expected to have a strong impact in the field of (bio-)sensors. However EGOFETs directly expose their active material towards the aqueous media, hence a limited(More)
In this work, we report our effort to understand the photocurrent generation that is contributed via electron-exciton interaction at the donor/acceptor interface in organic solar cells (OSCs). Donor/acceptor bi-layer heterojunction OSCs, of the indium tin oxide/copper phthalocyanine (CuPc)/fullerene (C60)/molybdenum oxide/Al type, were employed to study the(More)
