2012 Physical Review B  
We performed a comparative study of the superconducting gap in the new filled skutterudite superconductors LaPt 4 Ge 12 and PrPt 4 Ge 12 using high-resolution photoemission spectroscopy. We succeeded in observing spectral changes across T c that reflect the opening of the superconducting gap in both compounds and also in observing a noticeable difference in their respective superconducting spectral shapes near the Fermi level, pointing toward a more complex superconducting gap structure in PrPt

In addition, we found that the two-gap model is more suitable for describing the superconducting-state spectrum of PrPt 4 Ge 12 than the single-isotropic-gap and single-anisotropic-gap models, which suggests an explanation that multiband effects may possibly induce the anomalous superconducting properties of PrPt 4 Ge 12 .

2010 Physica. C, Superconductivity  
In this paper, we present the result of soft x-ray photoemission spectroscopy and its comparison with the density functional calculation. Although local density approximation seems to be a good starting point for describing the electronic structure of FeSe, the simulated spectrum poorly reproduced the structure around E B = 2 eV. This result suggests the necessity of theoretical treatment beyond local density approximation.

2010 Journal of the Physical Society of Japan  
We have performed soft x-ray photoemission spectroscopy (SXPES) and resonant photoemission spectroscopy (RPES) of the filled skutterudite superconductor PrPt 4 Ge 12 in order to study the electronic structure of valence band and the character of Pr 4f . SXPES of PrPt 4 Ge 12 measured with 1200 eV photon energy, where spectral contribution of Pr 4f is negligible, was found nearly identical with that of LaPt 4 Ge 12 , indicating similarity of Pt-Ge derived electronic states of the two compounds.

Pr 3d → 4f RPES shows that, although Pr 4f electrons in PrPt 4 Ge 12 are not as strongly hybridized with conduction electrons near E F as in PrFe 4 P 12 , there are finite Pr 4f contribution to the states near E F in PrPt 4 Ge 12 . These PES results give the information of fundamental electronic structure for understanding the physical properties of the novel filled skutterudite superconductor PrPt 4 Ge 12 .

Heat storage due to photosynthesis and respiration activities in forests

2010 Journal of Agricultural Meteorology  
This study evaluated heat storage flux or released flux due to biotic activity (S C ) in forests. First, as a case study, we investigated diurnal pattern of S C over an evergreen coniferous forest via a three-year continuous eddy-covariance CO 2 flux measurement. We clarified that (1) in some case, S C reached over 15 of total heat storage flux during the snow-free period (May-October), (2) S C was 4.3 W m -2 on average and reached 4.9-7.0 of average sensible and latent heat fluxes during the
more » ... ow-free period. Second, we estimated S C by using net ecosystem exchange over several forest ecosystems as reported by previous studies. During the snow-free period over several forest ecosystems, the maximum Sc and daily amplitude exceed 3-12 and 4-17 W m -2 respectively. Those values were comparable to those of the latent heat storage flux in the air layer from the ground surface to the level of eddy-covariance measurement over several forest ecosystems as shown by previous reports. Our findings suggest that S C cannot be always ignored. We would need to examine whether S C can be ignored based on the circumstances of the targeted research.

FEC recovery performance for video streaming services over wired-wireless networks

2009 Performance evaluation (Print)  
This paper considers the packet recovery performance of forward error correction (FEC) for video streaming services over wired-wireless networks. Focusing on a wireless base station, we model it as a single-server queueing system with a Markovian service process in which the state of the server alternates between Good and Bad states. The system has two independent input processes: one is a general renewal input process and the other is a Poisson arrival process. We analyze the packet-and

Numerical examples show that the block-loss probability is greatly affected by the system capacity and the mean Bad-state period, and that the recovery performance of FEC deteriorates according to the fluctuation in the packet transmission rate at a wireless base station.

Congenital occurrence of solitary infantile myofibromatosis of the spleen

Izumi Muraoka, Yasuharu Ohno, Akira Kamitamari, Masahiko Okada, Hiroyuki Moriuchi, Takashi Kanematsu
2008 Journal of Pediatric Surgery  
Infantile myofibromatosis (IM) is a rare soft tissue tumor of infancy and childhood. We report the case of a newborn girl with an abdominal tumor discovered at 32 weeks of gestation by fetal ultrasound. She underwent a laparotomy for an unexplained abdominal mass 20 days after birth. The tumor originated from the spleen and was removed by splenectomy. There were no other abnormal findings on diagnostic modalities. Based on the histological examinations, the tumor was diagnosed as an IM. Though

Angle-resolved photoemission study of Si electronic structure: Boron concentration dependence

Takanori Wakita, Hiroyuki Okazaki, Yoshihiko Takano, Masaaki Hirai, Yuji Muraoka, Takayoshi Yokoya
2010 Physica. C, Superconductivity  
The boron concentration dependence of the Si electronic structure of Si(100)2×1 surfaces were investigated by angle-resolved photemission spectrosopy (ARPES). The ARPES spectra exhibit rigid shifts toward lower binding energy as the boron concentration increases. The band dispersion was obtained from fitting procedure, and it is found that the top of the valence band does not exceed the Fermi level even with a boron concentration 35 times larger than the critical concentration of the metal-insulator transition.

2021 Scientific Reports  
AbstractDiabetic nephropathy (DN) is accompanied by characteristic changes in the glomerulus, but little is known about the effect of diabetes on parietal epithelial cells (PECs). In this study, a descriptive analysis of PECs was undertaken in diabetic db/db mice and in diabetic patients. PEC hypertrophy was significantly more prominent in diabetic mice than in nondiabetic mice, and this was evident even at the early stage. Additionally, the number of vacuoles in PECs was markedly increased in

In cultured PECs, a high glucose condition, compared with normal glucose condition, induced cellular hypertrophy and apoptosis. Flow cytometry showed that some PECs in the G0 phase reentered the cell cycle but got arrested in the S phase. Finally, in human diabetic subjects, hypertrophy and vacuolization were observed in the PECs. Our data showed that PECs undergo substantial changes in DN and may participate in rearrangement for differentiation into podocytes.
