Toulouse shootings and French presidential campaign : ‘flogging a dead horse’
The Toulouse shootings have reaffirmed the prejudices of the French presidential candidates and allowed them to build a campaign around xenophobia. Immigrants in France may continue to be vilified.
In the name of god : preserving the sense of security in Malaysia
The controversy over the Christian use of “Allah”, the divine name Muslims use for God, has taken a new twist as more provocations surfaced. The sense of insecurity in Malaysia can be eased through dialogue inspired ...
Accuracy and precision of tidal wetland soil carbon mapping in the conterminous United States
Tidal wetlands produce long-term soil organic carbon (C) stocks. Thus for carbon accounting purposes, we need accurate and precise information on the magnitude and spatial distribution of those stocks. We assembled and ...
Extraction of plant-based capsules for microencapsulation applications
Microcapsules derived from plant-based spores or pollen provide a robust platform for a diverse range of microencapsulation applications. Sporopollenin exine capsules (SECs) are obtained when spores or pollen are processed ...
Lipopolysaccharide-affinity copolymer senses the rapid motility of swarmer bacteria to trigger antimicrobial drug release
An intelligent drug release system that is triggered into action upon sensing the motion of swarmer P. mirabilis is introduced. The rational design of the drug release system focuses on a pNIPAAm-co-pAEMA copolymer that ...
DEM study of the size-induced segregation dynamics of a ternary-size granular mixture in the rolling-regime rotating drum
Segregation induced by size, shape, or density difference of the granular material is inevitable in both natural and industrial processes; unfortunately, the underlying mechanism is still not fully understood. In view of ...
Low threshold and efficient multiple exciton generation in halide perovskite nanocrystals
Multiple exciton generation (MEG) or carrier multiplication, a process that spawns two or more electron–hole pairs from an absorbed high-energy photon (larger than two times bandgap energy Eg), is a promising way to augment ...
Ultrafast THz photophysics of solvent engineered triple-cation halide perovskites
Solution processed thin film organic-inorganic perovskites are key to the large scale manufacturing of next generation wafer scale solar cell devices. The high efficiency of the hybrid perovskite solar cells is derived ...
Inducing ischemia-reperfusion injury in the mouse ear skin for intravital multiphoton imaging of immune responses
Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) occurs when there is transient hypoxia due to the obstruction of blood flow (ischemia) followed by a subsequent re-oxygenation of the tissues (reperfusion). In the skin, ischemia-reperfusion ...
Giant enhancement in Goos-Hänchen shift at the singular phase of a nanophotonic cavity
In this letter, we experimentally demonstrate thirtyfold enhancement in Goos-Hänchen shift at the Brewster angle of a nanophotonic cavity that operates at the wavelength of 632.8 nm. In particular, the point-of-darkness ...
