Light emitting diodes (LEDs) can be used as light detectors and as light emitters. In this paper, we present a novel BRDF measurement device consisting exclusively of LEDs. Our design can acquire BRDFs over a full hemisphere, or even a full sphere (for the bidirectional transmittance distribution function BTDF), and can also measure a (partial)(More)
This study aimed to prepare nanoemulsions coated with alginate/chitosan for oral insulin delivery. Uncoated nanoemulsions were prepared by homogenization of a water in oil in water (w/o/w) multiple emulsion that was composed of Labrafac(®) CC, phospholipid, Span™ 80 and Cremorphor(®) EL. Coating of the nanoemulsions was achieved based on polyelectrolyte(More)
Recent evidence suggests that the association between oxytocin receptor polymorphism (OXTR rs53576) and emotion-related behavioral/psychological tendencies differs between individuals from East Asian and Western cultures. What remains unresolved is which specific dimension of cultural orientations interacts with OXTR rs53576 to shape these tendencies and(More)
Gastrointestinal diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a common subtype of extranodal lymphoma. There has been uncertainty about the clinical efficacy of combination therapy (surgery and chemotherapy) for gastrointestinal DLBCL. We retrospectively analyzed 114 patients with newly diagnosed gastrointestinal DLBCL from six medical centers. We evaluated(More)
We develop a model of international trade with export quality requirements and two dimensions of firm heterogeneity. In addition to " productivity " , firms are also heterogeneous in their " caliber " – the ability to produce quality using fewer fixed inputs. Compared to single-attribute models of firm heterogeneity emphasizing either productivity or the(More)
Novel H5N6 influenza A viruses have infected birds and human beings and caused four human clinical cases in China since 2014. The pig, as a mixing vessel, plays an important role for influenza virus reassortment and transmission. Towards this, routine surveillance for swine influenza in Guangdong province was conducted in 2014. In this study, we reported(More)
Studies showed that vascular diseases were prone to occur in curved arteries. In this paper, biomechanical behaviors of curved artery with flexible wall subjected to physiological flow were presented. Fluid-structure interaction effect was considered. The Von Mises stress variation and distribution patterns, the influence of artery curvature and flexibility(More)
Cell size varies greatly among different cell types and organisms, especially during early development when cell division is rapid with little overall growth. A fundamental question is how organelle size is regulated relative to cell size. The nucleus exhibits exquisite size scaling during development and between species, and nuclear size is often altered(More)
