Nano-Indentation Tests Applied to Measurement of the Mechanical Properties for the C/a-Si Composite Film
Jen-Fin Lin

Indentation load–depth curves can be measured with a depth-sensing indenter instrument and used to determine the mechanical properties of materials. The hardness of a film-substrate sample is the composite hardness, which is affected by the film, the substrate, and the interface properties. The composite hardness is believed to approach the film hardness when the indentation depth is extremely ...

Contemporary deformation of tectonic escape in SW Taiwan from GPS observations, 1995-2005
Ruey-Juin Rau

The concept of tectonic escape (or tectonic extrusion) around the ends of a mountain belt describes the kinematics of the lateral motions of geological units moving toward a free boundary in response to the collision-induced shortening (Figure 1), such as SE Asia and Eastern Alps. For the tectonic escape in large-scale mountain belts, the directions of surface displacements, the sense of ...

Students’ perception on medical professionalism: the psychometric perspective
Chyi-Her Lin

Teaching professionalism is essential for professional development in medical education. However, medical professionalism presents a conceptual issue and its meaning should be defined. As Arnold mentioned that “ well circumscribed concept of professionalism can serve as a foundation for future measurement initiative”.  In order to design a curriculum for medical professionalism, we must define ...

A 60-GHz Millimeter-Wave CPW-Fed Yagi–Antenna Fabricated Using 0.18-μm CMOS Technology
Huey-Ru Chuang

I.INTRODUCTION
Recently, there exists an increasing demand for broadband multimedia applications for an ever-increasing capacity of wireless networks.  In particular, for dense local communications, the 60- GHz band for wireless personal area network (WPAN) applications is of special interest to the short range communications due to its attenuation characteristic of atmospheric oxygen of 10 to ...
