All-inorganic metal halide perovskite nanostructures : from photophysics to light-emitting applications
All-inorganic metal halide perovskite nanostructures (IHPNs) have sparked intense research interest by virtue of the superior optical properties and the cost-effective synthesis. Since the first report in 2015, striking ...
Novel mutation G324C in WNT1 mapped in a large Pakistani family with severe recessively inherited Osteogenesis Imperfecta
Introduction: Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous disease with skeletal fragility and variable extra-skeletal manifestations. To date several point mutations in 18 different genes ...
Pre-reduction of metal oxides via carbon plasma treatment for efficient and stable electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution
Pre-reduction of transition metal oxides is a feasible and efficient strategy to enhance their catalytic activity for hydrogen evolution. Unfortunately, the prereduction via the common H2 annealing method is unstable for ...
Bending, splitting, compressing and expanding of electromagnetic waves in infinitely anisotropic media
High-efficiency diffraction-free manipulations of electromagnetic (EM) waves are fundamentally difficult to realize, though reflectionless wave bending or sub-diffraction-limited imaging has been realized separately in ...
Confined transverse electric phonon polaritons in hexagonal boron nitrides
We predict the existence of confined transverse electric (TE) phonon polaritons in an ultrathin hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) slab below hBN's second transverse optical frequency. The skin depth of TE phonon polaritons can ...
Edge-regular graphs with regular cliques
We exhibit infinitely many examples of edge-regular graphs that have regular cliques and that are not strongly regular. This answers a question of Neumaier from 1981.
Complete genome sequence of Thalassotalea euphylliae strain H2
A bacterial isolate of Thalassotalea euphylliae H2 was collected from the coral Montipora capitata. MinION long reads were employed for scaffolding and complemented with short-read MiSeq sequences to permit complete ...
Full-genome sequence of Thalassotalea euphylliae H1, isolated from a Montipora capitata coral located in Hawai’i
The isolate of Thalassotalea euphylliae H1 was collected from the surface of a Montipora capitata coral. The genome was assembled using long reads from a Nanopore MinION sequencer for scaffolding and complemented with ...
Cobalt complex of a tetraamido macrocyclic ligand as a precursor for electrocatalytic hydrogen evolution
Hydrogen (H2) is a clean fuel that can potentially store renewable energy and overcome some of the environmental problems that arise from fossil-fuel consumption. One attractive approach is to produce H2 from water ...
360 intrusions in a miniature volcano : birth, growth, and evolution of an analog edifice
Most volcanoes throughout the world have been monitored with geophysical data (seismology and geodesy) for no more than three decades, a relatively short time compared to their overall life. The consequence is that we lack ...
