We consider defect modes created in complete gaps of 2D
photonic crystals by perturbing the dielectric constant in some region. We
study their evolution from a band edge with increasing perturbation using
an asymptotic ...

Previously, the insulin producing liver cell line HUH7-ins has been shown to synthesize, store and secrete insulin in response to glucose via secretory granules. The current study characterized the gene expression profile ...

Measurements of the radiance distribution and fluence rate within turbid samples with fiber-optic radiance microprobes contain a large variable instrumental error caused by the nonuniform directional sensitivity of the ...

A compact, high-power emitter of half-cycle terahertz (THz) radiation is demonstrated. The device consists of an epitaxial InAs emitter upon a GaAs prism and produces THz pulses that are 20 times more powerful than those ...
SnO2 nanoparticles were dispersed on graphene nanosheets through a solvothermal approach using ethylene glycol as the solvent. The uniform distribution of SnO2 nanoparticles on graphene nanosheets has been confirmed by ...
In lossless periodic media, the concept of group velocity is fundamental to the study of propagation dynamics. When spatially averaged, the group velocity is numerically equivalent to energy velocity, defined as the ratio ...
The paper deals with the H∞ control problem for active vehicle suspension systems with actuator time delay. The time delay for the actuator is assumed as uncertain time-invariant but has a known constant bound. By suitably ...

ABSTRACT. Experiments have been performed to investigate the heat loss and evaporation rate from an open-top tank of heated water that is also agitated vigorously by air bubbling through it. High consumption of electrical ...
This paper presents data on turbulent-spot propagation in the hypersonic boundary-layer flow over a blunted cylindrical body. Data are based on the measurement of time-dependent surface heat transfer rates using gauges ...
Nuclear milli and microprobes at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) were used to determine lead accumulation in native Australian plants and animals. Three species of eucalypt plants (Eucalyptus ...
The bandwidth and contrast of secondary electron (SE) images obtained using variable pressure scanning electron microscopy are enhanced when a grounded Frisch grid is placed between the SE detecting anode and the negatively ...
We report on very high coupling efficiencies into rod-type photonic crystal (PC) slabs with unmodified interfaces. Three-dimensional finite difference time domain simulations show that reflected powers of less than 1.5% ...

Hollow structured CoFe 2O 4 nanospheres were synthesized by a hydrothermal method. The uniform hollow nanosphere architecture of the as-prepared CoFe 2O 4 has been confirmed by field emission scanning electron microscopy ...
Structural stability and hydrogen adsorption capacity are two key quantities in evaluating the potential of metal-adatom decorated graphene for hydrogen storage and related devices. We have carried out extensive density ...

This paper proposes a new method for natural-image deblur based on a single blurred image. The natural image prior, a sparse gradient distribution, is enforced using a gradient histogram remapping method in the proposed ...
We give a rigorous semianalytical definition of impedance for square and triangular (hexagonal) lattice two-dimensional photonic crystals (PCs). Our impedance is a small matrix, derived from transfer matrices, which stores ...
We implement a flexible Z-matrix approach in the density functional theory (DFT) periodic boundary conditions code, SIESTA. This allows a mixture of Z-matrix and Cartesian coordinates to be used for geometry specification ...
This paper, as a pioneering work, presents measurement techniques to characterize soft magnetic materials in three-dimensional (3D) space. A novel 3D magnetic property tester using cubic sample has been constructed and ...
This paper analyzes the effect of the internal field on the measurement with two-dimensional (2-D) rotating fluxes. It is demonstrated that due to the effect of the internal field, the misalignment of H sensing coils, ...
