The STM break junction (STM-BJ) and mechanically controllable break junction (MCBJ) are the two most widely applied techniques to fabricate atomic-size nanowires for conductance measurement. However, the drawbacks of the mechanical crashing between the two electrodes of the same material in these techniques hamper its capability of application in view of(More)
Near infrared spectra of 99 lamb meat samples from three pasturing areas and two farming areas of China were scanned and analyzed to seek a cheap, rapid and effective method for lamb meat origin traceability. Two chemometric methods including linear discriminant analysis based on principal component analysis (PCA+LDA) and partial least squares discriminant(More)
The differences in sample moisture affect the robustness of NIR model obviously. In the present paper, three approaches, including preprocessing spectra, selecting wavelength, and setting up global calibration, were investigated to analyze the feasibility of setting up robust calibrations based on the protein content of wheat with different moistures. It(More)
This work describes jump-to-contact STM-break junction experiments leading to novel statistical distribution of last-step length associated with conductance of a single atom contact. Last-step length histograms are observed with up to five for Fe and three for Cu peaks at integral multiples close to 0.075 nm, a subatomic distance. A model is proposed in(More)
Fe electrodeposition on Au(111) and Au(100) in BMIBF(4) ionic liquid is found to form hitherto unreported shape-ordered nanoscale morphologies of pseudorods and pseudosquare rings, respectively, both composed of grains of 4-7 nm. The manner of growth of the square rings is a ring-on-ring structure with enlarging side length and slightly protruding four(More)
The last decade has witnessed remarkable advances in interfacial electrochemistry in room-temperature ionic liquids. Although the wide electrochemical window of ionic liquids is of primary concern in this new type of solvent for electrochemistry, the unusual bulk and interfacial properties brought about by the intrinsic strong interactions in the ionic(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the feasibility of tracing the geographical origin of beef with FT-NIR spectroscopy, set up the model for identifying the beef geographical origin, and validate the rate of discrimination. Fifty eight defatted beef samples from Jilin, Guizhou, Ningxia, and Hebei in China were dried and milled. Based on the NIR(More)
