Self-Catalyzed Growth of Vertical GaSb Nanowires on InAs Stems by Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition

We report the first self-catalyzed growth of high-quality GaSb nanowires on InAs stems using metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) on Si (111) substrates. To achieve the growth of vertical InAs/GaSb heterostructure nanowires, the two-step flow rates of the trimethylgallium (TMGa) and trimethylantimony (TMSb) are used. We first use relatively low TMGa and TMSb flow rates ...

Analgesic effects of a hydro-ethanolic whole plant extract of Synedrella nodiflora (L.) Gaertn in paclitaxel-induced neuropathic pain in rats

Background Synedrella nodiflora is used by traditional healers in Ghana for the management of epilepsy and pain.

Empirical Test of Fama and French Three-Factor Model in Amman Stock Exchange

This study aims to empirically test the ability of Fama and French (1993) Three-Factor Model (FF3F) in predicting monthly excess rates of returns of stocks traded in Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) during the period (2001 - 2010). The study uses similar methodology of FF3F. Stocks in the sample have sorted according to the size (market value) and value (book-tomarket ratio, B/M) in ...

The effect of mislabeled phenotypic status on the identification of mutation-carriers from SNP genotypes in dairy cattle

Background Statistical and machine learning applications are increasingly popular in animal breeding and genetics, especially to compute genomic predictions for phenotypes of interest. Noise (errors) in the data may have a negative impact on the accuracy of predictions. The effects of noisy data have been investigated in genome-wide association studies for case–control experiments, ...
