[…] r-factor of 25.6% and free r-factor of 28.9% using the complete range of collected data to better than 3.7 å of resolution. refinement statistics are summarized in . all figures were generated in ribbons () or pymol ()., to align the local dyad of dimeric ab subunits to a given specific axis such as the x-axis, a rotated a′ and b′ were generated from a and b using the 2-fold crystallographic […]

[…] red–green cones (larison and bremiller, )., because per2 mutant larvae displayed a light-on vmr defect, we investigated whether this visual defect in mutants was the result of abnormal synaptic ribbons (allwardt et al., ). retinas were studied by electron microscopy at zt5, which was the time at which the visual function was obviously defected (figure ). compared with the wt retina, […]

[…] confinement of charge carriers. this allows proper switching behavior if gnrs are used as a channel material in field effect transistors (gnr-fets). in particular, the bandgap in armchair-edged ribbons is roughly inversely proportional to the nanoribbon width (eg ∼ 1/w),,, so that sub-5 nm ribbons will be required for field effect transistors. the semiconducting nature […]

[…] of gnrs functionalized with triphenylene-based discotic liquid crystal through silane conjugation [] (). the π–π interaction of triphenylene unit enhance the self-assembly dlc-gnrs form ribbons of several length. further, compared with tem images of ods-coated gnrs with dlc-gnrs as shown in . the tem images obtained for dlc-gnrs composites as shown in . the image a and corresponding […]

[…] moreover, those techniques are, in general, not adequate to process soft elastic materials. here, we introduce a new concept of forming 3d closed hollow shapes from two-dimensional (2d) elastic ribbons by controlled buckling. we numerically and experimentally characterize how the profile and thickness of the ribbon determine its buckled shape. we find a 2d master profile with which various […]
