Applying a magnetic field to many ferrofluids leads to a significant increase in viscosity, but the phenomenon has yet to find technological exploitation because of the thinning caused by even weak shear flows. We have discovered that the addition of plant-virus-derived nanotubes to a commercial ferrofluid can give rise to a dramatic enhancement in(More)
In 2008 January the twenty-fourth Chinese expedition team successfully deployed the Chinese Small Telescope ARray (CSTAR) to Dome A, the highest point on the Antarctic plateau. CSTAR consists of four 14.5 cm optical telescopes, each with a different filter (g, r, i, and open) and has a 4:5° × 4:5° field of view (FOV). It operates robotically as part of the(More)
DNA-wrapped multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were successfully obtained by a simple sonication treatment method. The obtained materials were characterized in detail by Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). An SEM image showed that MWCNTs were dispersed sufficiently and covered entirely with DNA. This resulted in high aqueous(More)
Stress-induced voiding (SIV) is investigated in Cu-based, deep-submicron, dual damascene technology. Two failure modes are revealed by TEM failure analysis. For one mode, voids are formed under the via when the via connects a wide metal lead below it. For the via which is instead under a wide metal line, voids are formed right above the via bottom. The void(More)
This paper presents a general analysis on the shear stiffness of spine bracing systems of selective storage racks in the down-aisle direction. Unlike the architectural steel structure, the bearing capacity of bracing connection in the spine bracing systems of steel rack structure is weaker than that of bracing members. Firstly, destructive tests of spine(More)
This paper presents a finite element analysis on the tensile stiffness of steel bolted connections, which are fabricated from thin-walled cold-formed steel strips and members. This type of bolted connection is usually used to assemble the diagonal bracing member in the light steel structure. Unlike the architectural steel structure, thin walled steel bolted(More)
—According to the characteristic of monitoring data in geotechnical engineering, three nonlinear time series prediction models: whole-region methods(linear function, exponential function, Gauss function and Fourier function), local-region methods(linear function, power function and exponential function) and chaos neural network based on the local-region(More)
Silver salt/poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (poly(HEMA)) hybrid particles were first prepared by inverse miniemulsion polymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) with silver tetrafluoroborate (AgBF(4)) as a lipophobe. High silver salt loads of up to 13% with respect to the disperse phase were achieved. The silver/poly(HEMA) hybrid particles were(More)
Using nanosecond (ns) and femtosecond (fs) time-resolved absorption spectroscopies (pump-probe technique), the carrier dynamics in transition metal oxide nanocrystals of alpha-Fe2O3 and ZnFe2O4 was studied during the photolysis process. For Fe2O3 and ZnFe2O4 nanocrystals, the fs measurements detect similar profiles of a positive nonlinear absorption in(More)
