Integrative research outcomes of shrimp immunity, pathogenesis and microbiomics
Han-Ching Wang

【107 Taiwan Outstanding Women in Science】Special Issue
Various diseases, currently threaten shrimp aquaculture, especially in developing countries of Asia. The WSD (white spot disease), caused by WSSV (white spot syndrome virus), and AHPND (acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease), caused by a virulent strain of the Vibrio parahaemolyticus bacterium, are the two most harmful diseases …

Plant and Microbes- Relationship of pros and cons
Woei-Jiun Guo

【106 Ta-You Wu Memorial Award】Special Issue
Most plants require soils for maximum growth. Therefore, plants will need to compete nutrients with soil microorganisms. However, plants also develop the mutualistic symbiotic relationship with microorganisms for optimal growth. During symbiosis, plants will secret carbohydrates, especially metabolic sources-sugars, to exchange inorganic minerals with …

Ionospheric plasma hole and gigantic shock waves induced by the launch of FORMOSAT-5 using the Space-X rocket
Charles C. H. Lin

【106 MOST Outstanding Research Award】Special Issue
The launch of Taiwan’s first self-made satellite mission, FORMOSAT-5, had induced the greatest observed circular shock acoustic waves on record in the upper atmosphere followed by the ionospheric plasma hole. FORMOSAT-5 was the only passenger of the Space-X Falcon-9 rocket that delivered it to the mission orbit of 725 km altitude, thanks to the …

A Four-Phase Buck Converter With Capacitor-Current-Sensor Calibration for Load-Transient-Response Optimization That Reduces Undershoot/Overshoot and Shortens Settling Time to Near Their Theoretical Limits
Tai-Haur Kuo

【106 MOST Outstanding Research Award】Special Issue
Next-generation mobile electronic devices such as smart phones and tablets will keep increasing processing speed while saving power. Hence, switching DC-DC converters with ultra-fast load-transient responses will be in great demand. This paper presents a four-phase buck converter with capacitor-current-sensor (CCS) calibration for …

Waveguide plasmon resonance of arrayed metallic nanostructures patterned on a soft substrate by direct contact printing lithography
Yung-Chun Lee

【106 MOST Outstanding Research Award】Special Issue
Here we present a direct contact printing method to obtain arrayed metallic nanostructures on a soft polymer substrate. It utilizes a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) mold replicated from silicon molds to transfer metallic nano-patterns to a polymer substrate based on difference in interfacial bonding energy. Figure 1 shows schematically the …
