Influence of substitutional defects in ZIF-8 membranes on reverse osmosis desalination: A molecular dynamics studyTerence Hong Zhi Xiang
In this study, molecular dynamics simulation is used to investigate the effects of water-based substitutional defects in Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIF)-8 membranes on their reverse osmosis (RO) desalination performance. ZIF-8 unit cells containing up to three defect sites are used to construct the ZIF-8 membranes. These substitutional defects can either be Zn defects or linker defects. The RO performance of the membranes is tested in terms of the water flux and ion rejection rate. The...

Replication Data for: An fNIRS Investigation of Masculinity, Femininity, and Sex on Nonparents’ Empathic Response to Infant CriesGiulio Gabrieli, Xinyao Ng & Gianluca Esposito
According to societal stereotypes, the female sex and people who are more feminine have been considered to be more empathic than males and people who are more masculine. Therefore, females and feminine individuals are expected to respond more empathically to an infant’s cries. While this hypothesis was tested using self-report scales, it has not been explored thoroughly in terms of prefrontal cortex (PFC) activity which may be a more objective means of measuring empathy. Specifically,...

Replication Data for: Extended Bound States in the Continuum with Symmetry- Broken Terahertz Dielectric MetasurfacesSong Han, Prakash Pitchappa, , Yogesh Kumar Srivastava, Mikhail V. Rybin & Ranjan Singh
Excitation of the non-radiative eigenmodes in photonics and metamaterials above their light cone, that is, the bound states in the continuum (BICs), has drawn fundamental and technological interest. However, the current studies on photonic BICs are mainly restricted to the characterization of the eigenmodes with fixed point group. Here, a fourfold rotationally symmetric (C4v) array of silicon resonators in a square lattice is investigated that reveals the traditional symmetry-protected (Γ-state) and accidental (off-Γ) BICs in...

Realisation of integrated, low-cost, and efficient solutions for high-speed, on-chip communication requires terahertz waveguides and holds tremendous potential in future information and communication technologies, including terahertz wireless communication, terahertz integrated circuits, and terahertz interconnects for intra-/inter-chip communication. However, conventional approaches to terahertz waveguiding suffer from sensitivity to defects and considerable bending losses at sharp bends. Here, building on the topological phase of light, we experimentally demonstrate robust terahertz topological valley transport on low-loss, all-silicon chip....

The XML tagging resources provided here support discourse analysis of research papers using the Information-Argument-Rhetorical Structure framework used in Dr Wei-Ning Cheng's thesis. The Information-Argument-Rhetorical Structure framework specifies 3 layers of discourse analysis: 1. Information structure analysis 2. Argument structure analysis 3. Rhetorical structure analysis The framework was derived from an analysis of the Abstract, Introduction and Literature Review sections of 30 sociology, mechanical engineering and bioscience research papers (10 each). The framework was applied...
