This cross-sectional, descriptive study identified variables associated with caregivers who (1) were employed and (2) reported lost hours from work due to care demands. Family caregivers (N=80) of persons with a primary malignant brain tumor participated in a 45-60 min telephone interview, answering questions regarding the impact of providing care on their(More)
Large areas of perfectly ordered magnetic CoFe2O4 nanopillars embedded in a ferroelectric BiFeO3 matrix were successfully fabricated via a novel nucleation-induced self-assembly process. The nucleation centers of the magnetic pillars are induced before the growth of the composite structure using anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) and lithography-defined gold(More)
We have grown horizontal oriented, high growth rate, well-aligned polar (0001) single crystalline GaN nanowires and high-density and highly aligned GaN nonpolar (11-20) nanowires on r-plane substrates by metal organic chemical vapor deposition. It can be found that the polar nanowires showed a strong yellow luminescence (YL) intensity compared with the(More)
Lactobacillus paracasei N1115 is a new strain with probiotic properties isolated from traditional homemade dairy products in Inner Mongolia, China. Here, we report the complete genome sequence of L. paracasei N1115, which shows high similarity to the well-studied probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, and 3 structures turned out to be inversions, according(More)
Fully epitaxial BaTiO(3)/CoFe(2)O(4) ferroelectric/ferromagnetic multilayered nanodot arrays, a new type of magnetoelectric (ME) nanocomposite with both horizontal and vertical orderings, were fabricated via a stencil-derived direct epitaxy technique. By reducing the clamping effect, ferroelectric domain modification and distinct magnetization change(More)
The development of hydrothermal synthesis has greatly promoted bottom-up nanoscience for the rational growth of diverse zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures. In comparison with normal ZnO nanowires, ZnO nanostructures with a larger surface area, for instance, branched nanowires, are more attractive in the application fields of catalysis, sensing, dye-sensitized(More)
Low-temperature processes are unremittingly pursued in the fabrication of organic solar cells. The paper reports that the highly efficient and "light-soaking"-free inverted organic solar cell can be achieved by using ZnO thin films processed from the aqueous solution method at a low temperature. The inverted organic solar with an aqueous-processed ZnO thin(More)
This work reports an unexpected oxidation behavior of Cu nanoparticles embedded in porous Al(2)O(3) confinements that are produced by annealing alucone (an organic-inorganic hybrid material) deposited by molecular layer deposition. An oxidation of such encapsulated Cu nanoparticles by annealing in air produces Cu oxide nanoparticles attached to the outer(More)
Giant optical transmittance changes of over 300% in wide wavelength range from 500 nm to 2500 nm were observed in LaBaCo2O5.5+δ thin films annealed in air and ethanol ambient, respectively. The reduction process induces high density of ordered oxygen vacancies and the formation of LaBaCo2O5.5 (δ = 0) structure evidenced by aberration-corrected transmission(More)
