PMCID: 5942159
PMID: 29770112
DOI: 10.3389/fncir.2018.00032

[…] ribbon length varies in LD conditions. In the pineal gland of rats or guinea pigs, ribbon number and size increase during the night (Vollrath, ; Jastrow et al., ), while mouse photoreceptor synaptic ribbons also change their shape during the day/night cycle but exhibit the reverse pattern, being longest during the day under LD conditions (Adly et al., ; Balkema et al., ). Striking changes in the […]

[…] Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) have recently emerged as attractive organic materials for applications in new generations of electronic devices (Fig. a)–. Grouped by their edge structures, zigzag, and armchair GNRs ar […]


Electronic and optical responses of quasi one dimensional phosphorene nanoribbons to strain and electric field

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5904133
PMID: 29666507
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24521-w

[…] TB model calculations have been proved successful to describe the ground-state electronic/optical properties of BP layers and ribbons by comparing to the ab initial results–. In refs,. Rudenko et al. proposed the TB model for layered BP which consists of 10 in-plane hopping integrals and 4 inter-plane ones. In this work, we […]


Icosahedra clustering and short range order in Ni Nb Zr amorphous membranes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5904141
PMID: 29666391
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-24433-9

[…] ture of Ni5Nb3Zr5 type was reported for the alloy of (Ni0.60Nb0.40)60Zr40 by molecular dynamics calculations,. In order to understand detailed local cluster structures inside these Ni-based amorphous ribbons by considering the experimental APT data, DFT-MD simulation were performed. The DFT-MD simulations cannot predict the whole experimental samples because of the limited size scale to hundreds o […]


Quasi monolithic mirror suspensions in ground based gravitational wave detectors: an overview and look to the future

Philos Trans A Math Phys Eng Sci
PMCID: 5915646
PMID: 29661973
DOI: 10.1098/rsta.2017.0281

[…] uch as a factor of approximately 100 improvement could be achieved at 40 K with respect to aLIGO specification of approximately 1 × 10−19 m/√Hz at 10 Hz. They also conducted strength tests on silicon ribbons etched from silicon wafers as potential ribbon fibres. These were exposed to different surface treatments in an attempt to increase their strength, and averages of between 133 and 210 MPa for […]


Self assembly and clustering of magnetic peapod like rods with tunable directional interaction

[…] rger clusters. For small enough η (≲ 0.1) there is no formation of an infinite cluster independent of Ψ. Also, we observe that Smax saturates for Ψ ≳ 75°. The small η (≲ 0.1) and the tendency to form ribbons, which make the chains of the rods shorter in length, are the reasons for the absence of the extended clusters.The connectivity properties can also be studied by the analysis of the cluster si […]
