Data from high-energy physics (HEP) experiments are collected with significant financial and human effort and are mostly unique. An inter-experimental study group on HEP data preservation and long-term analysis was convened as a panel of the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA). The group was formed by large collider-based experiments and(More)
We designed and synthesized novel retinoid X receptor (RXR)-selective antagonists bearing a carborane moiety. Compounds 8a-d or 9a-d themselves have no differentiation-inducing activity toward HL-60 cells and no inhibitory activity towards a retinoic acid receptor (RAR) agonist. However, they inhibit the synergistic activity of an RXR agonist, PA024, in the(More)
This paper presents the high speed microrobot actuation driven by permanent magnets in a microfluidic chip. The riblet surface, which is regularly arrayed V groove reduces the fluid friction and enables stable actuation in high speed. The comprehensive analysis of fluid force, the optimum design and its fabrication were conducted and proved the friction(More)
Microrobots are promising tools for the treatment of biological cells because of their lack of skill dependence, high throughput, and high repeatability. Integration of a microfluidic chip and robotics based on microelectromechanical systems technology is a key challenge for biomedical innovations. In addition to the advantage of environmental control by a(More)
p-Carborane bisphenols and their derivatives were prepared and evaluated for binding affinity to estrogen receptor alpha. Their estrogenic activity was evaluated by means of transcriptional assay and cell proliferation assay using MCF-7 cell lines. 1,12-Bis(4-hydroxyphenyl)-1,12-dicarba-closo-dodecaborane 4a showed potent estrogenic activity, approaching(More)
Multi-segmented one-dimensional metal nanowires were encapsulated within carbon nanotubes (CNTs) through in-situ filling technique during plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition process. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and environmental TEM were employed to characterize the as-prepared sample at room temperature and high temperature. The selected(More)
In this paper, we briefly review results on rare decays of B mesons from the Belle experiment, based on 10.4 fb−1 data collected on the Υ(4S) resonance. The topics include measurements of Cabibbo suppressed decays B → D(∗)K(∗), charmless twobody decays B → ππ, Kπ, KK and B → η′h (h = K+, π+,K0), and a search for flavor changing neutral current decays B →(More)
Carbon nanotube (CNT) yarns are fabricated by drawing (combined with spinning) from CNT forests and grown on a substrate. Three types of phenomena occur in these CNT yarns with increasing amounts of current: yarn rotation, catalyst evaporation, and breakage of the yarn. These phenomena result from the resistive heating occurring during the current flow, and(More)
