Energy Harvesting from the Obliquely Aligned InN Nanowire Array with a Surface Electron-Accumulation Layer
Chuan-Pu Liu

This study proposes an obliquely aligned InN nanowire (NW) array to maximize NW deformation in nanopiezotronics and nanogenerators. The proposed nanogenerator consists of obliquely aligned InN NWs that are deposited by glancing angle deposition with molecular beam epitaxy. This configuration maximizes the bending deformation produced by a normal force, which is limited by the empty space between …

Near-infrared light-responsive intracellular drug and siRNA release using Au nanoensembles with oligonucleotide-capped silica shell
Chen-Sheng Yeh

Herein, one remarkable material was designed; Near-infrared light-responsive intracellular drug and siRNA release using Au nanoensembles. We used Au nanorods (Au NRs) as a template, which was covered with mesoporous silica shell. Further, bondable oligonucleotides (dsDNA) were used as pore blockers that allow the facilitated release of entrapped anti-cancer drugs Doxorubicin (Dox) within …

Population-Based Study on Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury Suggests Increased Risk of Dementia
Kuen-Jer Tsai

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the leading cause of mortality and disability in young adults across the world, especially in Taiwan. Neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), have been frequently reported to develop in patients with TBI. However, the relationship between traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the …

An Accelerometer-Based Digital Pen with a Trajectory Recognition Algorithm for Handwritten Digit and Gesture Recognition
Jeen-Shing Wang

Explosive growth of miniaturization technologies in electronic circuits and components has greatly decreased the dimension and weight of consumer electronic products, such as smart phones and handheld computers, and thus made them more handy and convenient. Due to the rapid development of computer technology, human-computer interaction (HCI) techniques [1-2] have become an …
