A Novel Nanocone Cluster Microstructure with Anti-reflection and Superhydrophobic Properties for Photovoltaic Devices

As three-dimensional (3D) nanostructures can significantly improve the absorption capacity of photons, it is widely used in various photovoltaic devices. However, the high-cost and complex preparation process of traditional 3D nanostructures restricted its development greatly. In this paper, a new type of nanocone cluster microstructure was prepared on polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS...

Janus electrode with simultaneous management on gas and liquid transport for boosting oxygen reduction reaction

Oxygen reduction efficiency holds the key for renewable energy technologies including fuel cells and metal-air batteries, which involves coupling diffusion-reaction-conduction processes at the interface of catalyst/electrolyte, and thus rational electrode design facilitating mass transportation stands as a key issue for fast oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). Herein, we report a...

Shear Wave Elasticity Measurements of Three-Dimensional Cancer Cell Cultures Using Laser Speckle Contrast Imaging

Shear wave elastography (SWE) has been widely adopted for clinical in vivo imaging of tissue elasticity for disease diagnosis, and this modality can be a valuable tool for in vitro mechanobiology studies but its full potential has yet to be explored. Here we present a laser speckle contrast SWE system for noncontact monitoring the spatiotemporal changes of the extracellular...

A Low-Pass Filter of Wide Stopband with a Novel Multilayer Fractal Photonic Bandgap Structure

A novel, multilayer fractal PBG is presented here as the substrate for a microstrip line and the resulting configuration builds a low-pass filter of wide stopband. Experimental results in comparison with the corresponding two filters with monolayer PBG show that the proposed filter drastically enhances the width of the stopband.

Multiuser precoding scheme and achievable rate analysis for massive MIMO system

We analyze the downlink multiuser precoding of massive multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system, where the base station (BS) has ideal channel state information (CSI) and adopts three types of different linear precoding schemes, i.e., maximum ratio transmission (MRT), zero-forcing (ZF), and minimum mean squared error (MMSE). Under a Rayleigh fading channel, we attain the...

Manganese Superoxide Dismutase Gene Polymorphisms in Psoriatic Arthritis

The purpose of the present study is to investigate the role of manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) gene polymorphisms in the susceptibility to psoriatic arthritis. MnSOD gene polymorphisms were determined by polymerase chain reaction/restriction fragment length polymorphisms method in fifty-two patients with psoriatic arthritis and 90 healthy controls. The genotype frequency...

IκBα Promoter Polymorphisms in Patients with Behçet’s Disease

To investigate the role of IκBα promoter polymorphisms in the development of Behçet’s disease, eighty-six patients with Behçet's disease and 120 healthy controls were enrolled in this study. The IκBα; -881A/G, -826C/T, -550A/T, -519C/T, and -297C/T polymorphisms were measured by the method of polymerase chain reaction/ restriction fragment length polymorphism. This study...

Genome-Wide Analysis of Genetic Variations and the Detection of Rich Variants of NBS-LRR Encoding Genes in Common Wild Rice Lines

Common wild rice (Oryza rufipogon Griff.) is invaluable genetic resource for rice resistance breeding. Whole-genome re-sequencing was conducted to systematically analyze the variations in two new inbred lines (Huaye 3 and Huaye 4) developed from a common wild rice. A total of 4,841,127 SNPs, 1,170,479 InDels, 24,080 structural variations (SVs), and 298 copy number variations...

Entanglement, quantum randomness, and complexity beyond scrambling

Abstract Scrambling is a process by which the state of a quantum system is effectively randomized due to the global entanglement that “hides” initially localized quantum information. Closely related notions include quantum chaos and thermalization. Such phenomena play key roles in the study of quantum gravity, many-body physics, quantum statistical mechanics, quantum information...
