TiO2-coated Ag nanorods (Ag@TiO2 NRs) have been fabricated as multifunctional surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrates. Uniform TiO2 shells could sufficiently protect the internal Ag NRs… Expand
Intense photoluminescence from amorphous tantalum oxide films
Tantalum oxide films were deposited on silicon substrates at a temperature of ∼450°C by heating a pure tantalum foil in a rough vacuum. The films were amorphous in structure and consisted of fully… Expand
Perception of empathy in the therapeutic encounter: effects on the common cold.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of patient-practitioner interaction on the severity and duration of the common cold. METHODS We conducted a randomized controlled trial of 719 patients with new… Expand

Due to the homology between retinal and cerebral microvasculatures, retinopathy is a putative indicator of cerebrovascular dysfunction. This study aimed to detect metabolite changes of brain tissue… Expand
Power and sample size for clinical trials when efficacy is required in multiple endpoints: application to an Alzheimer's treatment trial
Background When the efficacy of a treatment in a randomized controlled trial is required for multiple primary endpoints, trial design and analysis differ from trial requiring efficacy in only one of… Expand
Enhanced field emission properties of MoO2 nanorods with controllable shape and orientation
Abstract Arrays of MoO 2 nanorods were fabricated on silicon substrates within a typical growth time of ∼1 min by direct heating of a molybdenum spiral coil in a low vacuum. The nanorods grown with… Expand
Preparation of MoO3 nanostructures and their optical properties
In this letter we report the synthesis of nanostructures of molybdenum trioxides by directly oxidizing a spiral coil of molybdenum, at ambient atmosphere, by passing a current through the coil. The… Expand

A two-step method was proposed in synthesizing V2O5 nanorods on planar substrates, i.e., depositing a V2O3 thin film at approximately 220 degrees C (by heating a pure sheet of vanadium in a rough… Expand
Molybdenum oxide film with stable pseudocapacitive property for aqueous micro-scale electrochemical capacitor
Abstract Conductive MoO2+x film deposited at 150 °C by magnetron sputtering is investigated as negative electrode material for micro-scale electrochemical capacitors. It is found that the film 860 nm… Expand
