Synthesis of Graphene Oxide and reduced graphene oxide (RGO) Graphene oxide (GO) was synthesized accordingly to a modified Hummers' method. 1,2 Typically, 1.5 g graphite obtained from Beijing Chemical agents Co. was pretreated in a concentrated sulfuric acid (35 ml) solution added with sodium nitrate (0.75 g) at room temperature. 16 hours later, 4.5 g KMnO 4 was added to the mixture at around 0 °C which was assisted by an ice bath and continuously stirred for 2 hours. After the mixture was

After that, the excess hydrogen peroxide (3%) was added to the mixture followed by overnight stirring. The mixture was then filtered through Nylon Millipore filter and washed by 10% HCl solution and excess water to remove the acid. Finally, the solid was vacuum dried at 80 °C overnight to obtained GO. Electronic Supplementary Material (ESI) for Nanoscale This journal is Reduced graphene oxide was produced by heating the as-prepared GO at different temperature (300°C, 500°C, 700°C, 900°C ) to obtained RGO-300, RGO-500, RGO-700, RGO-900 respectively, in a tube furnace. The ratio of H2/Ar is 1:3 controlled by a mass flow controller. Charaterization The microscopic features of the samples were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM, JEOL JEM-1011) and high-resolution TEM (HRTEM, JEOL JEM-2010). For the XPS analysis, a Kratos AXIS 165 multitechnique electron spectrometer was used. XANES experiments were performed on the Soft X-ray Magnetic Circular Dichroism (SXMCD) station of National Synchrotron Radiation Lab (NSRL) at Hefei. The samples were loaded in an ultrahigh-vacuum chamber at a vacuum of <5 × 10-7 Pa. All spectra were acquired in the total electron yield (TEY) mode with an experimental resolution of 0.2 eV at room temperature. All 13C and 1H magic angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS NMR) spectra were recorded on a Bruker Avanc II WB 400 MHz spectrometer with a 4 mm Bruker MAS NMR probe. Each spectrum was acquired using a π/2 pulse, pulse delay time of 5 s at the 13C resonance frequency of 100.6 MHz and 1H resonance frequency of 400.1 MHz. The spinning speed is 6 kHz or 10 kHz. All the 13C and 1H spectra were referenced to tetramethylsilane (TMS). The gas-sensitivity measurements were conducted in a home made sensor testing system, and the sensor film were prepared by spin coating a drop of as-prepared N,N-dimethylformafide suspension of 5μl RGO (1 mg/ml) on a commercial sensor electrode (UST, Germany). Hydrogen, carbon monoxide and methane were used as the testing gas and were introduced into the testing chamber by mass flow controller with a concentration of 500 ppm, 2500 ppm and 5000 ppm, respectively. For the investigation of the influence of the temperature to the sensitivity, the measurements were carried out at 25 °C, 47 °C and 132 °C, respectively. The electronic conductivity is measured by sourcemeter (KEITHLEY, Model 2400). The conductivity of the sensor film was measured by two probe method. In the sensor device, a 21 v voltage was applied and the current flow was measure. The resistance of the RGO sensor films was obtained according to the formula below: R=U/I

Autoantibodies against tumor associated antigens are highly related to cancer progression. Autoantibodies could serve as indicators of tumor burden, and have the potential to monitor the response of treatment and tumor recurrence. However, how the autoantibody repertoire changes in response to cancer treatment are largely unknown. Sera of five lung adenocarcinoma patients before and after surgery, were collected longitudinally. These sera were analyzed on a human proteome microarray of 20,240

The identified candidate antigens were then used to construct focused microarray and validated by longitudinal sera collected from a variety of time points of the same patient and a larger cohort of 45 sera from lung adenocarcinoma patients. The autoantibody profiles are highly variable among patients. Meanwhile, the autoantibody profiles of the sera from the same patient were surprisingly stable for at least 3 months after surgery. Six surgery-associated antigens were identified and validated. All the five patients have at least one surgery-associated antigen, demonstrating this type of biomarkers is prevalent, while specific antigens are poorly shared among individuals. The prevalence of each antigen is 2%-14% according to the test with a larger cohort. To our knowledge, this is the first study of dynamically profiling of autoantibody repertoires before/after surgery of cancer patients. The high prevalence of surgery-associated antigens implies the possible broad application for monitoring of tumor recurrence in population, while the low prevalence of specific antigens allows personalized medicine. After the accumulation and analysis of more longitudinal samples, the surgery-associated serum biomarkers, combined as a panel, may be applied to alarm the recurrence of tumor in a personalized manner.

Feng Wei, Zhenbo Chen, Zhenghong Hao, Fengxin Yang, Hua Wei, Bing Han, Sheng Guo
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Most dialogue systems in real world rely on predefined intents and answers for QA service, so discovering potential intents from large corpus previously is really important for building such dialogue services. Considering that most scenarios have few intents known already and most intents waiting to be discovered, we focus on semi-supervised text clustering and try to make the proposed method benefit from labeled samples for better overall clustering performance. In this paper, we propose Deep

To make DCSC fully utilize the limited known intents, we propose a two-stage training procedure for DCSC, in which DCSC will be trained on both labeled samples and unlabeled samples, and achieve better text representation and clustering performance. We conduct experiments on two public datasets to compare our model with several popular methods, and the results show DCSC achieve best performance across all datasets and circumstances, indicating the effect of the improvements in our work.

A concrete artificial side (AS) is introduced to stabilize a gob-side entry (GSE). To evaluate the stability of the AS, a uniaxial compression failure experiment was conducted with large and small-scale specimens. The distribution characteristics of the shear stress were obtained from a numerical simulation. Based on the failure characteristics and the variation of the shear stress, a failure criterion was determined and implemented in the strengthening method for the artificial side. In an

The shear stress distribution and failure shape are induced by a combination of two sets of shear stresses, which implies that failure of the AS follows the twin shear strength theory. The use of anchor bolts, bolts, and anchor bars enhances the shear strength of the artificial side. When this side is stable, the components can constrain the lateral deformation as well as improve the internal friction angle and cohesion. When the AS is damaged, the components prevent the sliding of broken blocks along the shear failure plane and improve the residual strength of the artificial side. When reinforced with an anchor bar, the AS is still stable even after mining operations for three years. a certain value, the Tresca material will yield and slide along the maximum shear stress direction. In the Mohr criterion [4], the failure of a certain point in the material is mainly determined by the maximum principal stress and the minimum principal stress. The failure of a Mohr material is independent of the intermediate principal stress. The ultimate shear strength of the material is closely related to the cohesion and the internal friction angle in Coulomb criterion [5] . These three representative strength criteria only consider the influence of normal stress in a shear stress plane. Thus, these strength criteria consider only the maximum and minimum principal stress, but not the intermediate principal stress, and are known as single shear strength theory. Yu (1983) proposed a generalized twin shear strength theory that is appropriate for a material that has different strength in tension and compression [6] [7] [8] [9] . The failure mode of the AS is affected by many factors [10] [11] [12] , especially dynamic load induced by blasting which can cause significant damage to AS. In this study, we determined the failure characteristics and the variation of shear stress of the concrete AS of the GSE, which were affected by the coal mining. To achieve this, a uniaxial compression failure experiment was conducted with large and small-scale specimens. The distribution characteristics of shear stress were obtained from a numerical simulation. Based on the results, a failure criterion was determined and implemented in a strengthening method for the artificial side. Structural Model of the Artificial Side A schematic diagram of a GSE is presented in Figure 1 . The immediate roof above the AS prevents ground movement and rock deformation induced by GSE formation. The stiffness of the main roof and immediate roof are assumed to be much greater than that of the AS and the rigid floor that supports it. Thus, deformation occurs at the upper boundary of the artificial side, and the vertical displacement at the lower boundary is ignorable. Based on these conditions, a structural model of the AS was established, as shown in Figure 2 .

Compact accelerator based neutron source has lower cost and better flexibility than nuclear reactor. Neutron imaging using such a neutron source has attracted more and more attention in recent years, in spite of its relatively low neutron fluence. In order to keep a definite neutron flux above a reasonable level on a compact accelerator based neutron imaging system, one could not set the collimation ratio to be as high as the reactor neutron source to obtain a high resolution. Coded source

Since 2005, several laboratories in Germany and USA have carried out simulation and experiments of coded source neutron imaging. Those experiments are based on the reactor neutron sources, which have high neutron yield and low scattered neutron background. Recently, a preliminary coded source neutron imaging experiment was carried out on PKUNIFTY (Peking University Neutron Imaging Facility), which is based on a 2 MeV deuteron RFQ accelerator. It is the first time that coded source neutron imaging has been applied to an accelerator-based neutron source. Projections of coded neutron source are taken with a neutron yield of 2.6 × 10 11 s −1 . With Wiener filter deconvolution and Lucy-Richardson maximum likelihood iteration algorithm, the experimental projections are reconstructed successfully. Because the accumulated neutron fluence is low and the neutron background is high, the signal-to-noise ratio of reconstructed images is not good enough, which will be improved by reducing the neutron background.
