This paper reports on the fabrication and characterization of thin-film nanocomposites comprised of tangled carbon nanotubes in a polymer matrix. The density of nanotubes in the polymer was significantly increased using detonation nanodiamonds. Nanodiamonds reduce the surface forces between the polymer and the nanotubes and mitigate the agglomeration(More)
The lateral photovoltaic (LPV) effect has attracted much attention for a long time because of its application in position-sensitive detectors (PSD). Here, we report the ultrafast response of the LPV in amorphous MoS2/Si (a-MoS2/Si) junctions prepared by the pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique. Different orientations of the built-in field and the(More)
Nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (NSCL/P) are common birth defects with a complex etiology. Multiple interacting loci and possible environmental factors influence the risk of NSCL/P. 12 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in 7 candidate genes were tested using an allele-specific primer extension for case-control and case-parent(More)
This work presents measured results demonstrating an uncooled infrared (IR) detector based on gallium nitride (GaN) micromechanical resonators. GaN-based photonic detectors are typically designed to operate in the ultraviolet (UV) regime as the absorption spectrum of wide-band gap GaN peaks at a wavelength of ~360 nm. In contrast, the transduction mechanism(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the myocardial protective effect of Gualou Xiebai Banxia decoction GXBD) and explore the mechanisms of inhibition of NF-kappa B activation and blockade of inflammatory responses induced by ischemia-reperfusion in rats. METHODS Twenty-four Sprague Dawley (SD) rats were randomly divided into three groups. Rats in the treatment group(More)
The interaction of nanomaterials with biological macromolecules is an important foundation of the design and the biological safety assessments of nanomaterials. This work aims to investigate the interaction between pristine C60 and serum albumins (human serum albumin and bovine serum albumin) in solution. Stable aqueous dispersion of C60 was prepared by(More)
OBJECTIVES An accumulation of evidence suggests that gene-based self-susceptibility may contribute to the development of cancer. Some studies have found that particular polymorphisms of the glutathione S-transferase M1 and T1 genes are associated with increased risk of cervical lesions, but other studies have had contrary results. The present meta-analysis(More)
This paper describes a submillimeter-scale package intended for microsystem components in high-pressure and high-salinity environments, such as downhole environments in oil wells. The outer dimensions of the package are 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.8 mm<sup>3</sup>, whereas the interior cavity is 0.4 x 0.4 x 0.45 mm<sup>3</sup>. The package consists of a stainless steel(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the allergenicity of chlorogenic acid (CA) in Qingkailing injection. METHOD CA was administrated to Beagle dogs through intravenous injection, and on experimental allergic sensitization of guinea pigs, it was through intraperitoneal and intravenous injection. The behavioral changes of Beagle dogs and guinea pigs were observed, and(More)
We have successfully prepared EuO films on Si(100) wafers via pulsed laser deposition (PLD). It is well recognized that EuO grows with texture growth along (100) but the addition of 4% Gd changes the lattice constant and the texture growth to (111) as well as having a profound influence on the magnetic properties. The differences in the effects between Gd(More)
