Using webcasts for student presentations: a case study
(Emerald Group Publishing Ltd., 2016)
Purpose – Adopting Davis’ (1989) technology acceptance model (TAM), the purpose of this paper is to investigate the perceived differences between asynchronous presentation tools (webcasts) and in-person presentations in a ...
Turkey's role in defusing the Iranian nuclear issue
[No abstract available]
Proof of principle for a molecular 1 : 2 demultiplexer to function as an autonomously switching theranostic device
Guided by the digital design concepts, we synthesized a two-module molecular demultiplexer (DEMUX) where the output is switched between emission at near IR, and cytotoxic singlet oxygen, with light at 625 nm as the input ...
BaTiO3 and TeO2 based gyroscopes for guidance systems: FEM analysis
(Taylor and Francis Inc., 2016)
This paper presents the design, modeling and finite element model simulation of a micro-electromechanical system based on the ternary ferroelectric compounds and paratellurite. The dynamic behavior of the sensor structure ...
Zinc-oxide charge trapping memory cell with ultra-thin chromium-oxide trapping layer
A functional zinc-oxide based SONOS memory cell with ultra-thin chromium oxide trapping layer was fabricated. A 5 nm CrO2 layer is deposited between Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) steps. A threshold voltage (Vt) shift of ...
Multiscale Self-Assembly of Silicon Quantum Dots into an Anisotropic Three-Dimensional Random Network
(American Chemical Society, 2016)
Multiscale self-assembly is ubiquitous in nature but its deliberate use to synthesize multifunctional three-dimensional materials remains rare, partly due to the notoriously difficult problem of controlling topology from ...
Dihedral coverings of trigonal curves
We classify and study trigonal curves in Hirzebruch surfaces admitting dihedral Galois coverings. As a consequence, we obtain certain restrictions on the fundamental group of a plane curve D with a singular point of ...
'Fresh variants and formulations frozen': Structural features of commercial signs in Oman
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2015)
This study analyses structural features of English on commercial signs on shop frontages throughout Oman. The study identifies frequently used structural features which appear to be undergoing a process of nativization ...
Role of zinc interstitials and oxygen vacancies of ZnO in photocatalysis: A bottom-up approach to control defect density
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014)
Oxygen vacancies (VOs) in ZnO are well-known to enhance photocatalytic activity (PCA) despite various other intrinsic crystal defects. In this study, we aim to elucidate the effect of zinc interstitials (Zn i) and VOs on ...
Cytotoxic activities of some benzothiazole-piperazine derivatives
(Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2015)
Synthesis, characterization and cytotoxic activities of ten benzothiazole-piperazine derivatives were reported. In vitro cytotoxic activities of compounds were screened against hepatocellular (HUH-7), breast (MCF-7) and ...
