Efficient micromixing through artificial cilia actuation with fish-schooling configuration
Chia-Yuan Chen

A protocol that can achieve efficient flow manipulation with artificial cilia actuation for micromixing is necessary to be documented to benefit the profoundly microfluidic applications. This study described a new micromixing strategy that mimics a fish-schooling configuration to design the distribution arrangement of artificial cilia inside a micromixer. Fish-schooling configuration provides …

Clean and time-effective synthesis of anatase TiO2 nanocrystalline by microwave-assisted solvothermal method for dye-sensitized solar cells
Chao-Yu Chen

In this study, we employed microwave-assisted heating method to synthesize pure anatase TiO2nanoparticles by solvothermal route. The synthesized TiO2 nanoparticles of 20 nm are suitable as metal oxide semiconductor material for the application of dye-sensitized solar cells.

The major advantage of this recipe is the time-saving procedure for screen-printing paste …

Microtubule-associated histone deacetylase 6 supports the calcium store sensor STIM1 in mediating malignant cell behaviors
Meng-Ru Shen

Modulation of intracellular Ca2+ levels provides versatile and dynamic signaling that mediates various cellular processes, such as proliferation, migration, and gene expression. Store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) is the major form of extracellular Ca2+ influx in non-excitable cells, and the major molecular components in regulation of SOCE are the ER Ca2+

A 2.4/5.8 GHz 10 μW Wake-Up Receiver With -65/-50 dBm Sensitivity Using Direct Active RF Detection
Kuang-Wei Cheng

Wireless sensor network (WSN) requests very compact design in size and robust wireless communication between neighboring sensor nodes. Reducing power consumption for a smaller battery size and an extended battery lifetime in highly integrated electronics is always of the essence for WSN applications. In order to reduce power consumption, sensor nodes in low-activity-rate systems are typically …
