We propose and theoretically investigate a class of stable zigzag graphene nanoribbon (ZGNR) based molecular magnetic tunneling junctions (MTJs). For those junctions having pentagon-connecting formations, huge tunnel magneto-resistance (TMR) is found. Different from most of the other proposed molecular junctions, the huge TMR in our structures is generic,(More)
Pheromone-binding proteins (PBPs) of the gypsy moth, Lymantria dispar L., play an important role in olfaction. Here structures of PBPs were first built by Homology Modeling, and each model of PBPs had seven α-helices and a large hydrophobic cavity including 25 residues for PBP1 and 30 residues for PBP2. Three potential semiochemicals were first screened by(More)
The thermoelectric transport properties in atomic scale conductors consisting of a Si atom connected by two electrodes are investigated. It is found that both the electrical current and the heat current have two contributions, one from the voltage and the other from the temperature gradient. The quantities such as the Seebeck thermopower and the thermal(More)
We report theoretical investigations of the quantized spin-Hall conductance fluctuation of graphene in the presence of disorder. Two graphene models that exhibit the quantized spin-Hall effect (QSHE) are analyzed. Model I is with unitary symmetry under an external magnetic field B not = 0 but with a zero spin-orbit interaction, t(SO)=0. Model II is with(More)
We report the investigation of response time of spin resolved electron traversing through a magnetic Co-graphene nano-device. For this purpose, we calculate the transient current under a step-like upward pulse for this system from first principles using non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) formalism within the framework of density functional theory(More)
In this paper, we present a comprehensive study on the electronic and optoelectronic properties of indium monochalcogenide (InX with X = S, Se, Te) monolayers with and without strains. Our results show that InX monolayers are indirect semiconductors. Upon the application of strain, the band structures can be modulated and an indirect-to-direct bandgap(More)
A highly sensitive chemiluminescence (CL) method for evaluation of medical radiation damage degree is presented. According to the principle of cell stress response to ionizing radiation, lymphocytes will produce reactive oxygen species (ROS) after irradiation. The ROS produced can react with 2-methyl-6-(p-methoxyphenyl)-3,7-dihydroimidazo[1,2-alpha](More)
In this paper we present a new high-contrast photoacoustic tomography (PAT) imaging system using a 4f acoustic lens, a 64-element linear transducer array and peak-hold technology. This PAT imaging system has been developed to obtain three-dimensional (3D) PAT images of experimental samples. By utilizing a 4f acoustic lens, the photoacoustic (PA) signals(More)
Based on nonequilibrium Green's function approach and density functional theory, we report first principles investigation on ac transport of four carbon atomic chain connected by two semi-infinite aluminum leads, Al-C(4)-Al. For small alternating external bias voltage, we expanded nonequilibrium Green's function to the first order in the external voltage(More)
