Computing optical properties of ultra-thin crystals
An overview is given of recent advances in experimental and theoretical understanding of optical properties of ultra-thin crystal structures (graphene, phosphorene, silicene, MoS2 , MoSe2 , WS2 , WSe2 , h-AlN, h-BN, ...
Nanoribbons: From fundamentals to state-of-the-art applications
(American Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016-12)
Atomically thin nanoribbons (NRs) have been at the forefront of materials science and nanoelectronics in recent years. State-of-the-art research on nanoscale materials has revealed that electronic, magnetic, phononic, and ...
Comment on: The (G'/G)-expansion method for the nonlinear lattice equations [Commun Nonlinear Sci Numer Simulat 17 (2012) 3490-3498]
We show that two of the nonlinear lattice equations studied by Ayhan & Bekir [Commun Nonlinear Sci Numer Simulat 17 (2012) 3490-3498] have already been investigated by Aslan [Commun Nonlinear Sci Numer Simulat 15 (2010) ...
Challenges in the preparation of optical polymer composites with nanosized pigment particles: A review on recent efforts
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2012-09)
Blends of nanosized pigment particles and polymers are widely believed to offer the potential for the design of novel or at least improved materials. This review critically evaluates the recent literature with regard to ...
Novel agents targeting bioactive sphingolipids for the treatment of cancer
(Bentham Science Publishers, 2013-01)
Sphingolipids are a class of lipids that have important functions in a variety of cellular processes such as, differentiation, proliferation, senescence, apoptosis and chemotherapeutic resistance. The most widely studied ...
Comment on: "New exact solutions for the Kawahara equation using Exp-function method" [J. Comput. Appl. Math. 233 (2009) 97102]
Assas [Laila M.B. Assas, New exact solutions for the Kawahara equation using Exp-function method, J. Comput. Appl. Math. 233 (2009) 97102] found some supposedly new exact solutions to the Kawahara equation by means of the ...
Linking peroxiredoxin and vacuolar-ATPase functions in calorie restriction-mediated life span extension
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2014)
Calorie restriction (CR) is an intervention extending the life spans of many organisms. The mechanisms underlying CR-dependent retardation of aging are still poorly understood. Despite mechanisms involving conserved nutrient ...
The importance of protein profiling in the diagnosis and treatment of hematologic malignancies
(Galenos Publishing House, 2011)
Proteins are important targets in cancer research because malignancy is associated with defects in cell protein machinery. Protein profiling is an emerging independent subspecialty of proteomics that is rapidly expanding ...
Algorithms for the de novo sequencing of peptides from tandem mass spectra
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-10)
Proteomics is the study of proteins, their time- and location-dependent expression profiles, as well as their modifications and interactions. Mass spectrometry is useful to investigate many of the questions asked in ...
On the application of the Exp-function method to nonlinear differential-difference equations
When applying the Exp-function method to nonlinear-differential difference equations, Bekir (2010)  reported incorrect results. © 2012 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
