Saturable-Absorber Q-Switched All-Fiber Ring Lasers
Tzong-Yow Tsai

1. Introduction
A Q-switched fiber laser with a small core diameter could directly provide a high intensity-density output of 1-100 MW/cm2 without external focusing components. Such a high intensity density is quite useful for micromachining, nonlinear optics studies and biomedical applications. Like most of the conventional bulk Q-switched lasers, Q-switched fiber lasers have …

Internal Soil Moisture And Piezometric Responses To Rainfall-Induced Shallow Slope Failures
Ching-Chuan Huang

ABSTRACT
Better knowledge of internal soil moisture and piezometric responses in the process of rainfall-induced shallow slope failures is the key to an effective prediction of the landslide and / or debris flow initiation.  To this end, internal soil moisture and piezometric response of 0.7 m-deep, 1.5 m-wide, 1.7 m-high, and 3.94 m-long semi-infinite sandy slopes rested on a bi-linear …

Body Mass Index Can Determine the Healing of Reflux Esophagitis with Los-Angles Grades C and D by Esomeprazole
Bor-Shyang Sheu

Reflux esophagitis is a chronic recurrent disease, and can be assessed in severity by Los-Angles classification.  Reflux esophagitis patients with Los-Angles grades C and D (RE-CD) were elucidated as having poor healing rates compared with those having grades A and B. Accordingly, use of a long-term proton pump inhibitor (PPI) was recommended by the Geneva consensus for those patients with RE-CD …

The Role of Electronic Pocket Dictionaries as an English Learning Tool among Chinese Students
Hua-Li Jian

The electronic pocket dictionary is a typical South East Asian phenomenon and it is especially popular in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea and Japan. Electronic pocket dictionaries are sold in most consumer electronic shops and are frequently seen in classrooms. This study set out to uncover factors that motivate students' use of electronic pocket dictionaries and to assess their implications for …
