    ABSTRACT: We investigated the strain effect on temperature-dependent photoluminescence property in the clamped (with template) and free-standing (without template) PbTiO3 (PTO) nanotubes. The wall-thickness of nanotubes was varied from 25 to 80 nm with the outer diameter fixed to 420 nm. While all nanotubes show sizable green/yellow emission, the temperature dependent shift of the emission energy is significantly suppressed in the clamped PTO nanotubes, which is attributed to the lattice strain driven by the template clamping. This clamping effect is more significant for thinner nanotubes. Even in the free-standing PTO nanotubes the temperature-dependence of emission is affected by the wall-thickness. Our finding is the clear manifestation of the template and geometrical shape effect on the optical property of the nanotubes.

    ABSTRACT: Reports have been issued recently on single incision laparoscopic hernioplasty, but no large-scale study has been conducted as yet. This study aimed to assess the safety and feasibility of the single incision laparoscopic totally extraperitoneal hernioplasty (SIL-TEP) on a large number of cases. 512 SIL-TEPs in 471 patients were performed from June 2010 to January 2014 at Incheon St. Mary's Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea. SIL-TEP was performed using a glove single port device and standard laparoscopic instruments. Short-term outcomes were reviewed. Of the 512 hernias, 329 (64.3 %) were indirect, 144 (28.1 %) were direct, 9 (1.8 %) were femoral, and 30 (5.9 %) were combined. There were 3 (0.6 %) conversions to single or three-port laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernioplasty. Mean operative time was 41.6 min for unilateral hernias and 65.3 min for bilateral hernias. Postoperative complications occurred in 45 cases (9.6 %); 21 were wound seromas, 5 were hematomas, and 18 were urinary retentions. All were successfully treated conservatively. Mean hospital stay was 1.8 days. The SIL-TEP is safe and technically feasible. Additional studies on long-term recurrence rates are needed to confirm the safety of SIL-TEP.

    ABSTRACT: Posterior neck pain following thyroidectomy is common because full neck extension is required during the procedure. We evaluated the effect of intra-operative transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation on postoperative neck pain in patients undergoing total thyroidectomy under general anaesthesia. One hundred patients were randomly assigned to one of two groups; 50 patients received transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation applied to the trapezius muscle and 50 patients acted as controls. Postoperative posterior neck pain and anterior wound pain were evaluated using an 11-point numerical rating scale at 30 min, 6 h, 24 h and 48 h following surgery. The numerical rating scale for posterior neck pain was significantly lower in the transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation group compared with the control group at all time points (p < 0.05). There were no significant differences in the numerical rating scale for anterior wound pain at any time point. No adverse effects related to transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation were observed. We conclude that intra-operative transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation applied to the trapezius muscle reduced posterior neck pain following thyroidectomy.

    ABSTRACT: We investigated the influence of annealing and secondary warm rolling on the microstructural evolution and mechanical properties of a roll-bonded three-ply Al/Mg/Al sheet. After annealing at 300 °C, the formation of an intermetallic compound (IMC) layer consisting of Mg17Al12 and Mg2Al3 was identified at the interface. Although the thickness of the IMC layer increased with increasing annealing or preheating time, secondary warm rolling after preheating at 300 °C for 10 min significantly reduced the thickness of the IMC layer below 1.5 μm. Also an equiaxed and homogeneous grain morphology of the constituent magnesium alloy was successfully introduced. This resulted in strongly enhanced elongation up to magnesium fracture by 14.5%.

    ABSTRACT: A series of (Y2 − xLix)Ti2O7 − x samples abbreviated as YLT-2L were prepared by the addition of 2x moles of LiO0.5 self-flux into the parent compound, where x = 0.040 to 0.110. Preparation temperatures were either 1300 or 1350 °C, depending on the amount of flux addition. However, the Y2Ti2O7 had no LiO0.5 co-existence; it was prepared at the highest temperature, 1600 °C. Relative densities of all the YLT-2L samples were larger than 97%, but for the Y2Ti2O7, it was 94.3(2)% only. By the addition of flux, preparation temperature reduced for more than 250 °C. Among all the YLT-2L samples, the one with x = 0.070 had the highest total electrical conductivity (2.90(2) × 10− 4 S·cm− 1 at 700 °C) and the lowest total activation energy (0.99(1) eV). By doping Li ion into the Y-site, oxygen vacancies were created, although YLT-2L samples had flux co-existence, electrical conductivity was still comparable to the parent compound reported by Yamaguchi et al. (1998) and Kobayashi et al. (2002). At 500, 600 and 700 °C, the ionic transference numbers (ti) found for the YLT-2L samples were 1.00(2), 0.96(2) and 0.90(3), respectively, and did not vary with the amount of substitution and the flux addition. Contribution of the electronic conductivity was due to the presence of a small amount of the Ti3 + ions in the samples investigated by the Ti K-edge XANES spectra.

    ABSTRACT: We report on the strong pore-size-dependent optical properties of porous alumina membranes (PAMs) by using the photoluminescence and the optical spectroscopic techniques. The pore diameters of our PAMs varied from 60 to 420 nm. All samples showed a sizable violet/blue emission with a strong temperature dependence. We found that the peak position of the emission shifted to higher energies with increasing pore diameter, which was in accord with the smaller binding energy extracted from the temperature dependence of the emission intensity. From the transmission spectra, we found that the effective bandgap of the PAMs shifted significantly to lower energies with increasing pore diameter, which indicated that the impurity states within the bandgap was affected strongly by the geometry of the PAM.

    ABSTRACT: This study prepared a dense Sm-doped ceria (SDC) and an SDC carbonate composite (abbreviated as SDC-C). The latter was prepared by immersing porous SDC with a formula of (Ce0.8Sm0.2)O1.9 and a relative density of approximately 65-70% into a molten mixture of carbonates containing 1:1 molar ratio of Li2CO3 and Na2CO3 at 500 °C. The relative density of the SDC-C was close to 100%. In addition, SDC oxide without carbonates, which also has a relative density of close to 100%, was heat treated at 1600 °C. At 500 °C, the electrical conductivity and ionic transference number (ti) of the SDC oxide were 1.79(5) × 10−3 S·cm−1 and 0.99(2), respectively, such that electronic conduction could be disregarded. Increasing the temperature caused a gradual decrease in the ti of SDC. Following the addition of carbonates to SDC, the electrical conductivity reached 1.23(9) × 10−1 S·cm−1 at 500 °C. After 14 days (340 h), the electrical conductivity of the SDC-C at 490 °C, leveled off at about 6 × 10−2 S·cm−1. SDC-C could be used as a potential electrolyte in solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) at temperatures below 500 °C.

    ABSTRACT: Arc energy affects strongly the performance of circuit breaker. Especially it is the important note that hot gas distribution and pressure rise generated by arc can cause dielectric breakdown and restrike in gas circuit breaker after a fault current is interrupted. For the intimate observation of such phenomena and then designer's better understanding in this study, it carried out the calculation of the hot gas flow characteristics by arc and electric field intensity from transient recovery voltage during contact separation in gas circuit breaker using commercial CFD program. For the modeling of circuit breaker, it required the technologies including the movements the mechanical contacts using moving mesh, the initialization and extinction of an electric arc and nozzle ablation as the physical phenomena. At the conclusion, it will be discussed about the relation between heat transfer and performance prediction and shown about the effect of design index to stabilize thermal distribution.

    ABSTRACT: We report a direct measurement of the low-frequency optical conductivity of large-area single-crystal herbertsmithite, a promising spin-liquid candidate material, by means of terahertz time-domain spectroscopy. In the spectral range below 1.4 THz, we observe a contribution to the real part of the in-plane conductivity σ_{ab}(ω) from the spin degree of freedom. This spin-induced conductivity exhibits a power-law dependence on frequency σ_{ab}(ω)∼ω^{β} with β≈1.4. Our observation is consistent with the theoretically predicted low-frequency conductivity arising from an emergent gauge field of a gapless U(1) Dirac spin liquid.

    ABSTRACT: We investigated the visible emission property of ultrathin-walled Pb(Zr,Ti)O3 (PZT) nanotubes (NTs) with various diameters. The PZTNTs were synthesized using the sol-gel templatedirected method with a spin-coating process. The photoluminescence (PL) spectra were measured by using the 325nm photo-excitation as a function of temperature. We observed a sizable green/yellow emission around 550 nm for the PZTNTs at room temperature. With the decreasing temperature, the PL intensity dramatically enhanced, and the peak position shifted to lower energy. We also observed a clear dependence of the PL spectra on the diameter of the NTs. We applied the self-trap exciton model to explain the origin of the emission, and discuss the correlation between the NT geometry and the optical property in the PZT NTs.

    ABSTRACT: We investigated the structural and optical properties of Cu-poor CuGaSe2 (CGSe) films depending on the use of different substrates: indium-doped tin oxide (ITO) coated soda-lime glass (SLG) and fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) coated SLG as back contacts, widely used Mo-coated SLG, and pure SLG. The Cu-poor phase is chosen as a counterpart of Cu-poor Cu(In,Ga)Se2 to show the highest efficiency in this class of materials, and also give a test board for parasitic phases which might influence on device properties. Although the Cu-poor CGSe thin-films were deposited on the four substrates at the same time in an identical condition, they showed differences in the morphology and grain size due to different CGSe/substrate interfaces and growth mechanisms depending on the substrates. These surface properties of the CGSe films were identified clearly by atomic force microscopy (AFM) measurements. X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurement also supported the result of the AFM analysis and showed that the preferred orientation of CGSe is (112), independent of the substrates. The existence of parasitic phases was examined by Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopic techniques. While defect compounds such as CuGa3Se5 and CuGa5Se8 were identified for all films, the signals related to these parasitic phases are strongest for the films on the pure SLG substrate. Furthermore, the absorption property was investigated by spectroscopic ellipsometry in a photon energy range of 0.7–5 eV. We found that the absorption coefficient values for the CGSe films are about 104–105 cm−1 in the visible region. The absorption coefficient is also changed according to the use of different substrates. This difference comes from the parasitic phase formation, which leads to an increase of the bandgap and suppression of the optical absorption strength. Our systematic study suggests clearly that the difference in distribution of parasitic phases in the CGSe films could originate primarily from the different substrates used for the film deposition.

    ABSTRACT: We use low temperature spectroscopic scanning tunneling microscopy to study topological materials in which the surface states are protected by time reversal symmetry. We image the local density of states around a variety of single-atom impurities in the presence of a magnetic field. On a subset of these impurities, we observe broad peaks in the local density of states at energies around the Dirac point. Furthermore, we use Landau level spectroscopy and quasiparticle scattering to discuss the interplay between impurities and the surface states.

    ABSTRACT: Tenebrio molitor has been seriously investigated as a model insect in elucidating Toll signaling pathway and related regulators of innate immunity. However, little is known with regards to the genomic information in T. molitor. In an attempt towards exploiting the rich transcriptomics data that would offer further insights into the study on insect immunity through potential screening of immune-related genes in the model insect, we constructed a cDNA library (library titer = 5.0 × 105pfu/ml) of T. molitor larvae and analyzed expressed sequence tag (EST) sequences from 1056 clones. The base calling and quality check of obtained chromatogram files were performed by using the Phred program (trim_alt 0.05 (P-score > 20). After removal of vector and 100 bp and less sequences, 1023 sequences were generated having an average insert size of 792 bp, including 160 clusters, 164 contigs and 387 singletons through clustering and assembling process using the TGI Clustering Tools (TGICL) package. The unique EST sequences were searched against the NCBI nr database by local BLAST (blastx, E < e−5) with 940 sequences showing significant hits. Subsequently, KOG (clusters of orthologous groups for eukaryotic complete genomes) analysis was conducted (blastx, E < e−10) towards prediction of transcriptomal functions, leading to the categorization of 638 genes. The majority of genes belonged to Z category (cytoskeleton-related genes), R category (general function prediction), and C category (energy production and conversion related genes). These basic EST datasets and their bioinformatics analysis will be helpful in investigating the biological mechanism and molecular pathway related genes involved in innate immunity mechanisms of T. molitor.
