Efficient Polarization Beam Splitter Based on All-Dielectric Metasurface in Visible Region

In this paper, we present an all-dielectric gradient metasurface, composed of periodic arrangement of differently sized cross-shaped silicon nanoblocks resting on the fused silica substrate, to realize the function of polarization split in visible region. The cross-shaped silicon block arrays can induce two opposite transmission phase gradients along the x-direction for the...

An Outbreak of Gastroenteritis Associated with GII.17 Norovirus-Contaminated Secondary Water Supply System in Wuhan, China, 2017

A gastroenteritis outbreak occurred in a university in May, 2017, Wuhan, China. The epidemiological survey and pathogen analysis were conducted to identify the pathogen and control this outbreak. Feces or anal swabs from individuals, water, and swabs taken from tap surfaces of the secondary water supply system (SWSS) and foods were collected for the detection of viruses and...

Correction to: Simultaneous Modification of Alumina and MgO·Al2O3 Inclusions by Calcium Treatment During Electroslag Remelting of Stainless Tool Steel

In Table III, the correct value of first-order interaction parameter of Cr on S should be −0.0105, rather than 0.0105. It should be stressed that the thermodynamic calculation associated with this parameter was performed using \( e_{\text{S}}^{\text{Cr}} \) = − 0.0105 in the published article. Thus, all calculated results associated with this parameter are correct in this article.

A Mathematical Model for Biocontrol of the Invasive Weed Fallopia japonica

We propose a mathematical model for biocontrol of the invasive weed Fallopia japonica using one of its co-evolved natural enemies, the Japanese sap-sucking psyllid Aphalara itadori. This insect sucks the sap from the stems of the plant thereby weakening it. Its diet is highly specific to F. japonica. We consider a single isolated knotweed stand, the plant’s size being described...

Passive Multipath Time Delay Estimation Using MCMC Methods

Passive time delay estimation in multipath environments is studied in this paper. A novel restrained maximum likelihood (ML) estimator is proposed to estimate the multiple time delays. Unlike traditional ML function which has P global maximum values, restraint conditions limit the ML function of P paths time delays signal with only one global maximum value. Markov chain Monte...

Synthesis of ZnO/Si Hierarchical Nanowire Arrays for Photocatalyst Application

ZnO/Si nanowire arrays with hierarchical architecture were synthesized by solution method with ZnO seed layer grown by atomic layer deposition and magnetron sputtering, respectively. The photocatalytic activity of the as-grown tree-like arrays was evaluated by the degradation of methylene blue under ultraviolet light at ambient temperature. The comparison of morphology, crystal...

A THz Superconducting Imaging Array Developed for the DATE5 Telescope

Dome A in Antarctica, located at an altitude of 4093 m and with very low temperature in winter down to \(-\)83\(^{\circ }\)C, is an exceptionally dry site. Measurements of the atmospheric transmission in the range of 0.75–15 THz by a Far-infrared/THz Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) strongly suggest that Dome A is a unique site for ground-based THz observations, especially...

Associations between homocysteine metabolism related SNPs and carotid intima-media thickness: a Chinese sib pair study

Carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) is a good surrogate for atherosclerosis. Hyperhomocysteinemia is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. We aim to investigate the relationships between homocysteine (Hcy) related biochemical indexes and CIMT, the associations between Hcy related SNPs and CIMT, as well as the potential gene–gene interactions. The present study...

Development of an \(8\times 8\) CPW Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detector (MKID) Array at 0.35 THz

Microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) are promising for THz direct detector arrays of large size, particularly with simple frequency-division multiplexing. Purple Mountain Observatory is developing a terahertz superconducting imaging array (TeSIA) for the DATE5 telescope to be constructed at Dome A, Antarctica. Here we report on the development of a prototype array for...

Does Microwave Ablation of the Tumor Edge Allow for Joint-sparing Surgery in Patients With Osteosarcoma of the Proximal Tibia?

Background Joint-sparing surgery of a patient’s native joint for osteosarcoma likely affords better function and comparable survival. However, it sometimes is challenging to resect a juxtaarticular osteosarcoma in a way that preserves the affected epiphysis because wide margins are necessary to minimize the risk of local recurrence. If there was a method to resect a tumor close...

A large-scale fabrication of flower-like submicrometer-sized tungsten whiskers via metal catalysis

Tungsten powder mixed with an appropriate amount of nickel and iron powders is used as raw material to fabricate large-scale tungsten whisker-like structure. The morphology, microstructure and composition of the whisker-like tungsten are observed and tested by scanning electron microscope and FESEM, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray spectroscopy, and X-ray diffraction...

Single nucleotide polymorphisms in the FAM167A-BLK gene are associated with polymyositis/dermatomyositis in the Han Chinese population

Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIMs) are autoimmune diseases influenced by genetic background and environmental factors. Recently, FAM167A-BLK gene has been identified as a potential genetic susceptibility locus for dermatomyositis (DM) in patients of European and Japanese populations. Our aim here was to investigate the association between FAM167A-BLK polymorphisms and IIMs...

lg dose vaccine (GlaxoSmithKline) are recommended for adults. Adults; Hepatitis B vaccine immunogenicity; Vaccine - Linna Yang, Jun Yao and Jing Li have contributed equally to this work

Fabrication of a proton exchange membrane via blended sulfonimide functionalized polyamide

A novel linear non-fluorinated sulfonimide functionalized polyamide (SPA) polymer electrolyte was successfully synthesized via an aromatic sulfonimide monomer with superior thermal stability and superacidity. The aromatic sulfonimide remains stable below 220 °C. To fabricate membranes with strong mechanical strength and dimensional stability, the polymer was blended with various...

Exploring Venue-Associated Risk: A Comparison of Multiple Partnerships and Syphilis Infection Among Women Working at Entertainment and Service Venues

The re-emerging syphilis epidemic in China is documented among sex workers, but little is known about STI risk among the broader group of women who work at entertainment and service venues, many of whom do not self-identify as sex workers. In 2009 in Liuzhou, China, community informants identified venues where people meet sexual partners. Characteristics of a stratified random...

Expression of CIDE proteins in clear cell renal cell carcinoma and their prognostic significance

Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is the major and aggressive subtype of renal cell carcinoma. It is known to derive its histologic appearance from accumulation of abundant lipids and glycogens. The cell death-inducing DFF45-like effector (CIDE) family has been characterized as the lipid droplet proteins involved in the metabolism of lipid storage droplets. The purpose of...
