A 60-GHz Millimeter-Wave Bandpass Filter Using 0.18-μm CMOS Technology
Huey-Ru Chuang

I.INTRODUCTION
There exists an increasing demand for broadband multimedia applications for an ever increasing capacity of wireless networks.  With its attenuation characteristic of atmospheric oxygen of 10 to 15 dB/km in a bandwidth of about 7 GHz centered around 60 GHz, it makes the 60 GHz band of utmost interest for all kinds of short-range wireless ...

Numerical study for selective excitation of Ince-Gaussian modes in end-pumped solid-state lasers
Shu-Chun Chu

Researchers have recently predicted a third complete family of transverse modes, PWE solutions in elliptic cylindrical coordinates, namely the Ince-Gaussian modes (IGMs), which constitute the continuous transition modes between Hermite-Gaussian modes (HGMs) and Laguerre-Gaussian modes (LGMs). IGMs are recently observed in a LD-pumped solid-state laser by breaking the symmetry of the ...

Different Computer Word-Entry Methods Result in Different Cognitive Processing of Chinese Characters in their Users
Junn-Yeu Chen

A recent study1 showed that action video-game playing modified the visual selective attention of the habitual players. Here we showed that processing of Chinese characters became more phonologically or orthographically oriented depending on whether the participants used to type with the phonology-based or orthography-based word-entry method.
One striking difference between human and ...

The Effect of Audit Committees on Earings-Return Association:Evidence from Foreign Registrants in the United States
Jengfang Chen

Introduction
During the 1980s, US exchanges faced severe competition from competitors around the world. To cope with severe competition, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) then promulgated Form 20-F, which applies to foreign issuers. Form 20-F includes some exemptions provided to foreign issuers. One conspicuous case is the exemption regarding the establishment of audit ...

Multiple genetic and epigenetic biomarkers for lung cancer detection in cytologically negative sputum and a nested case-control study for risk assessment
Yi-Ching Wang

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. A more sensitive molecular marker panel would allow for more reliable diagnosis and possibly allow the assessment of lung cancer risk. For biomarker-based screening and diagnosis, sputum is commonly used since it can be collected non-invasively. Several studies suggest that promoter hypermethylation and/or microsatellite ...
