Dose-response algorithms for water-borne Pseudomonas aeruginosa folliculitis
We developed two dose–response algorithms for P. aeruginosa pool folliculitis using bacterial and lesion density estimates, associated with undetectable, significant, and almost certain folliculitis. Literature data were ...
From flab to fab : transforming surgical waste into an effective bioactive coating material
Cellular events are regulated by the interaction between integrin receptors in the cell membrane and the extracellular matrix (ECM). Hence, ECM, as a material, can potentially play an instructive role in cell–material ...
SERS biosensor using metallic nano-sculptured thin films for the detection of endocrine disrupting compound biomarker vitellogenin
A biosensor chip is developed for the detection of a protein biomarker of endocrine disrupting compounds, vitellogenin (Vg) in aquatic environment. The sensor chip is fabricated by immobilizing anti-Vg antibody on ...
Giant Goos–Hänchen shift in scattering : the role of interfering localized plasmon modes
The longitudinal and transverse beam shifts, namely, the Goos–Hänchen (GH) and the Spin-Hall (SH) shifts are usually observed at planar interfaces. It has recently been shown that the transverse SH shift may also arise due ...
Synergistic effect of self-assembled carbon nanopaper and multi-layered interface on shape memory nanocomposite for high speed electrical actuation
The synergistic effect of self-assembled carbon nanofiber (CNF) nanopaper and the multi-layered interface on the electrical properties and electro-activated recovery behavior of shape memory polymer (SMP) nanocomposites ...
Aerial CO2 trapped as CO3 2- ions in a dimeric capsule that efficiently extracts chromate, sulfate, and thiosulfate from water by anion-exchange metathesis
The tris(2-aminoethyl)amine-based (tren-based) 3-cyanophenyl-substituted tripodal urea L1, one of the familiar urea-based anion receptors, has shown encapsulation of CO32– ions as the carbonate capsule [(L1)2·(CO3)·(TBA)2] ...
A hierarchical nanostructured carbon nanofiber–In2S3 photocatalyst with high photodegradation and disinfection abilities under visible light
Photocatalytic degradation of pollutants under visible light provides a new door to solve the water contamination problem by utilizing free and renewable sunlight. The search for highly efficient photocatalysts with ...
Stable cyclic performance of nickel oxide–carbon composite anode for lithium-ion batteries
Nickel oxide (NiO) directly grown on nickel foam is regarded as a promising lithium ion battery anode material which shows good cyclic and rate performances with a theoretical specific capacity of 718 mAhg−1. In this study, ...
Germanium coated vertically-aligned multiwall carbon nanotubes as lithium-ion battery anodes
The performance of polycrystalline and amorphous germanium (Ge) as anode active materials for lithium-ion batteries was studied systematically. Polycrystalline Ge on vertically-aligned multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) ...
Plasmonic nanowire continuum light source
Optically pumped gold nanowire, 330 nm in diameter imbedded into silicate optical fiber produces broadband, highly collimated radiation (in the range 470-900 nm) with divergence of less than 4 mrad.
