Thermal transport in composites of self-assembled nickel nanoparticles embedded in yttria stabilized zirconia
(AIP Publishing, 2009-04-01)
We investigate the effect of nickel nanoparticle size on thermal transport in multilayer nanocomposites consisting of alternating layers of nickel nanoparticles and yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) spacer layers that are ...
Overexpression and simple purification of the Thermotoga maritima 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase in Escherichia coli and its application for NADPH regeneration
Background Thermostable enzymes from thermophilic microorganisms are playing more and more important roles in molecular biology R&D and industrial applications. However, over-production of recombinant soluble proteins from ...
Cell-free protein synthesis energized by slowly-metabolized maltodextrin
Background Cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) is a rapid and high throughput technology for obtaining proteins from their genes. The primary energy source ATP is regenerated from the secondary energy source through substrate ...
Foam-based optical absorber for high-power laser radiometry
(Optical Society of America, 2007-12-01)
We report damage threshold measurements of novel absorbers comprised of either liquid-cooled silicon carbide or vitreous carbon foams. The measurements demonstrate damage thresholds up to 1.6 x 104 W/cm(2) at an incident ...
Laser-induced exfoliation of amorphous carbon layer on an individual multiwall carbon nanotube
(AIP Publishing, 2007-07)
Pulsed laser treatment of an individual multiwall carbon nanotube induced selective exfoliation of the amorphous carbon contamination layer. The multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) was exposed to a 248 nm excimer laser. After ...
