Ag Nanorods Coated with Ultrathin TiO2 Shells as Stable and Recyclable SERS Substrates
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 NRsExpand

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 fullyExpand

Brain metabolite alterations demonstrated by proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy in diabetic patients with retinopathy.
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 tissueExpand

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 withExpand

Synthesis and optical properties of V2O5 nanorods.
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 roughExpand
