In this report, we made use of sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH)-deficient mutant mice (C57BL/LiA) to test whether there is a close correlation between the level of polyol accumulation and the degree of reduction in motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) associated with diabetes. The C57BL/LiA mouse has SDH deficiency due to a G-to-A mutation at the +1 position(More)
This paper reports a significant enhancement in the extraction efficiency of nano-patterned GaN light emitting diodes (LED) realized by soft UV nanoimprint lithography. The 2 inch soft stamp was fabricated using a replication stamp of anodic alumina oxide (AAO) membrane. The light output power was enhanced by 10.9% compared to that of the LED sample without(More)
To date, slow Set operation speed and high Reset operation power remain to be important limitations for substituting dynamic random access memory by phase change memory. Here, we demonstrate phase change memory cell based on Ti0.4Sb2Te3 alloy, showing one order of magnitude faster Set operation speed and as low as one-fifth Reset operation power, compared(More)
Si-Sb-Te materials including Te-rich Si₂Sb₂Te₆ and Si(x)Sb₂Te₃ with different Si contents have been systemically studied with the aim of finding the most suitable Si-Sb-Te composition for phase change random access memory (PCRAM) use. Si(x)Sb₂Te₃ shows better thermal stability than Ge₂Sb₂Te₅ or Si₂Sb₂Te₆ in that Si(x)Sb₂Te₃ does not have serious Te(More)
Van der Waals heterostructure superlattices of Sb2 Te1 and GeTe are strain-engineered to promote switchable atomic disordering, which is confined to the GeTe layer. Careful control of the strain in the structures presents a new degree of freedom to design the properties of functional superlattice structures for data storage and photonics applications.
Phase-change materials are highly promising for next-generation nonvolatile data storage technology. The pronounced effects of C doping on structural and electrical phase-change behaviors of Ge2Sb2Te5 material are investigated at the atomic level by combining experiments and ab initio molecular dynamics. C dopants are found to fundamentally affect the(More)
Ultra-long rutile tin dioxide nanowires and nanobelts are synthesized by thermal oxidation of tin powder using gold film as the catalyst. Nanowire or nanobelts can be selectively produced by tuning the reaction temperature. The vapour-liquid-solid growth mechanism is proposed. The band gaps of the nanowires and nanobelts are 3.74 and 3.81 eV respectively,(More)
Group IIIA elements, Al, Ga, or In, etc., doped Sb-Te materials have proven good phase change properties, especially the superior data retention ability over popular Ge2Sb2Te5, while their phase transition mechanisms are rarely investigated. In this paper, aiming at the phase transition of Al-Sb-Te materials, we reveal a dominant rule of local structure(More)
Phase-change memory (PCM) has great potential for numerous attractive applications on the premise of its high-device performances, which still need to be improved by employing a material with good overall phase-change properties. In respect to fast speed and high endurance, the Ti-Sb-Te alloy seems to be a promising candidate. Here, Ti-doped Sb2Te3 (TST)(More)
Phase change materials, successfully used in optical data-storage and non-volatile electronic memory, are well-known for their ultrafast crystallization speed. However, the fundamental understanding of their crystallization behavior, especially the nucleation process, is limited by present experimental techniques. Here, real-time radial distribution(More)
