Data from: Equivalent effect of UV coloration and vibratory signal on mating success in a jumping spider

Hua Zeng, Samantha S.E. Wee, Christina J. Painting, Shichang Zhang, Daiqin Li & Samantha S E Wee
Ultraviolet (UV; wavelengths: 280–400 nm) colouration has been shown to be an important visual signal but has not been studied in conjunction with other signals such as vibratory signals previously. Here we investigated multimodal signal function in the visual and substrate-borne vibratory modalities of the UV-ornamented jumping spider Cosmophasis umbratica, in which the importance of UV colouration in courtship displays has been demonstrated. We first described vibratory signals produced by courting males. We found that...

Data from: Golden orbweavers ignore biological rules: phylogenomic and comparative analyses unravel a complex evolution of sexual size dimorphism

Instances of sexual size dimorphism (SSD) provide the context for rigorous tests of biological rules of size evolution, such as Cope’s Rule (phyletic size increase), Rensch’s Rule (allometric patterns of male and female size), as well as male and female body size optima. In certain spider groups, such as the golden orbweavers (Nephilidae), extreme female-biased SSD (eSSD, female:male body length ≥ 2) is the norm. Nephilid genera construct webs of exaggerated proportions, which can be...

Data from: Nitrogen and chlorine co-doped carbon dots as probe for sensing and imaging in biological samples

Jin Li, Kai Tang, Jianxin Yu, Hanqin Wang, Mingli Tu & Xiaobo Wang
A facile one step hydrothermal synthesis approach was proposed to prepare nitrogen and chlorine co-doped carbon dots using l-ornithine hydrochloride as the sole precursor. The configuration and component of carbon dots were characterized by TEM, XPS, and FTIR. The obtained CDs (Orn-CDs) with a mean diameter of 2.1 nm were well monodispersed in aqueous solutions. The as-prepared CDs exhibited a bright blue fluorescence with a high yield of 60%, good photostability and low cytotoxicity. The...

Data from: Incorporation of Mn2+ into CdSe quantum dots by chemical bath co-deposition method for photovoltaic enhancement of quantum dot-sensitized solar cells

Chenguang Zhang, Shaowen Liu, Xingwei Liu, Fei Deng, Yan Xiong & Fang-Chang Tsai
A photoelectric conversion efficiency (PCE) of 4.9% was obtained under 100 mWcm−2 illumination by using quantum-dot-sensitized solar cells (QDSSCs) using a CdS/Mn:CdSe sensitizer. CdS quantum dots (QDs) were deposited on the TiO2 mesoporous oxide film by successive ionic layer absorption and reaction. Mn2+ doping into CdSe QDs is an innovative and simple method—chemical bath co-deposition, that is, mixing the Mn ion source with CdSe precursor solution for Mn:CdSe QD deposition. Compared with the CdS/CdSe sensitizer...
