Controllable bandgap widening from 1.8 to 2.6 eV is reported from oxidized MoS2 sheets that are composed of quilted phases of various MoSxOy flakes. The exfoliated flakes have large size (≥100 μm × 100 μm) sheets with average thickness of 1.7 nm. Remarkably, fine reversible tuning of the bandgap is achieved by postprocessing sulfurization of the MoSxOy(More)
A 30-yr-old man was referred for suspicious rectal cancer because of ulcerated lesions in the rectum and a palpable mass in left inguinal area. Sigmoidoscopy showed two indurated masses and histologic evaluation of biopsy revealed obliterative endarteritis with heavy plasma cell infiltration. Both venereal disease research laboratories (VDRL) and(More)
Water soluble GQDs were systematically characterized as a multiphoton fluorophore and a cell imaging probe. When mouse primary hepatocytes were incubated with GQDs, no significant cytotoxicity was observed up to the treatment concentration of 100 μg ml(-1). Using these GQDs, mouse primary hepatocytes were successfully imaged by multiphoton fluorescence.
Many applications, such as telecommunication, process control, and virtual reality, require real-time access to database. Main-memory DBMS, which becomes feasible with the increasing availability of large and relatively cheap memory, can provide better performance than disk-based systems for real-time applications. This paper presents an overall(More)
Homogeneous distribution of graphene flakes in a polymer matrix, still preserving intrinsic material properties, is key to successful composite applications. A novel approach is presented to disperse non-oxidized graphene flakes with non-covalent functionalization of 1-pyrenebutyric acid and to fabricate nanocomposites with outstanding thermal conductivity(More)
Designing a highly efficient catalyst is essential to improve the electrochemical performance of Li-O2 batteries for long-term cycling. Furthermore, these batteries often show significant capacity fading due to the irreversible reaction characteristics of the Li2O2 product. To overcome these limitations, we propose a bifunctional composite catalyst composed(More)
Few ultrawide-band (UWB) models directly fit original baseband UWB data to simultaneously account for their correlation structure, non-Gaussianity, and nonstationarity. The difficulty arises from the fact that no relevant result is available, even in multivariate statistical analysis. It also arises from the attempt to pursue the details of the mechanism(More)
The increasing demand for graphene has required a new route for its mass production without causing extreme damages. Here we demonstrate a simple and cost-effective intercalation based exfoliation method for preparing high quality graphene flakes, which form a stable dispersion in organic solvents without any functionalization and surfactant. Successful(More)
The influence of surface modifications on the mechanical properties of epoxy-hexagonal boron nitride nanoflake (BNNF) nanocomposites is investigated. Homogeneous distributions of boron nitride nanoflakes in a polymer matrix, preserving intrinsic material properties of boron nitride nanoflakes, is the key to successful composite applications. Here, a method(More)
To investigate the temporal progression of atherogenesis on the aorta and involvement of the monocyte-macrophage system in the liver and spleen, we fed 74 rabbits with high fat (14 or 7 gm%) and cholesterol (2 and 1%) diets for 4 to over 24 weeks. Using both light and electron microscopies, we found that the fibro-fatty areas on the luminal surface of(More)
