Band structures of cylindrical AlN/GaN quantum dots with fully coupled piezoelectric models
(Proceedings of SPIE  The International Society for Optical Engineering, 20101231)We study the coupled electromechanical effects in the band structure calculations of low dimensional semiconductor nanostructures (LDSNs) such as AlN/GaN quantum dots. Some effects in these systems are essentially nonlinear. ... 
Breast cancer dormancy can be maintained by small numbers of micrometastases
(Cancer Research, 20101231)Late relapse of breast cancer can occur more than 25 years after primary diagnosis. During the intervening years between initial treatment and relapse, occult cancers are maintained in an apparent state of dormancy that ...
