The paper's co-first authors were Sanghoon Bae, who was involved in flexible device fabrication, and Jaewoo Shim, who worked on the stacking of the 2-D material monolayers. Both are postdocs in Kim's group.
Figure 3 shows the charge and discharge performance of the cell with monolayer separators 2400 and PP2075 for both calendered and uncalendered samples.
The as-grown Mo[S.sub.2] monolayer and multilayers were characterized by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and Raman spectroscopy.
A monolayer in which the two components are mutually miscible would be homogeneous and its collapse pressure would not necessarily correspond to the collapse pressures of the pure monolayers.
Furthermore, when the C atom is doped, the exotic conduction channel in h-BN monolayers would emerge, which might improve electronic transport properties [41-46].
where A is the area per molecule of the monolayer and [pi] is the corresponding surface pressure [24].
Bulk Mo[S.sub.2] is one kind of indirect bandgap material and the monolayer Mo[S.sub.2] is a direct bandgap material [32, 33]; it is a salient feature of Mo[S.sub.2].
where [TEER.sub.monolayer] is the resistance of the cells monolayer along with the filter membrane, [TEER.sub.blank] is the resistance of the filter membrane, and A is the surface area of the membrane.
To evaluate changes in monolayer permeability, the cytotoxic factor (1 [CD.sub.50]) was applied to HUVEC monolayers grown above the insert (Thincerts[TM], Greiner Bio-One, Austria) and the microplates were incubated at 37 [degrees]C in a 5% C[O.sub.2] atmosphere (Shel Lab CO2 Incubator, OR, USA).
Keywords: monolayer; emulsifier; dispersion; stability; evaporation.
The monolayer model of biomembrane enables overcoming some serious limitations created by the more advanced models [44], such as phospholipid unilamellar vesicles (SUV or LUV) creating theoretical problems with their surface curvature, or supported phospholipid bilayers which of structures are strongly influenced by the support.
