Ningxia University is a regional comprehensive university, co-administrated by Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China.The school was founded in 1958. In the end of 1997, Ningxia Institute of Technology and Yinchuan Normal College were merged into the University. In February 2002, it was merged with Ningxia Agricultural College, and formed the new Ningxia University.It currently comprises three campuses. It consists of more than 2,600 teachers and staff, over 50% of them are formal instructors. More than half of the instructors hold intermediate to senior titles, 52% of them with masters or doctors degrees. 15 teachers receives special subsidies of the State Council, and 17 were elected into "National Hundreds, Thousands, Tens of Thousands Experts Project". It enrolls more than 15,000 undergraduates and over 1,300 graduates. More than 600 are minority preparatory students. Wikipedia.

Ferroelectric tunnel junctions (FTJs), composed of two metal electrodes separated by an ultrathin ferroelectric barrier, have attracted much attention as promising candidates for non-volatile resistive memories. Theoretical and experimental works have revealed that the tunnelling resistance switching in FTJs originates mainly from a ferroelectric modulation on the barrier height. However, in these devices, modulation on the barrier width is very limited, although the tunnelling transmittance depends on it exponentially as well. Here we propose a novel tunnelling heterostructure by replacing one of the metal electrodes in a normal FTJ with a heavily doped semiconductor. In these metal/ferroelectric/semiconductor FTJs, not only the height but also the width of the barrier can be electrically modulated as a result of a ferroelectric field effect, leading to a greatly enhanced tunnelling electroresistance. This idea is implemented in Pt/BaTiO3/Nb:SrTiO3 heterostructures, in which an ON/OFF conductance ratio above 104, about one to two orders greater than those reported in normal FTJs, can be achieved at room temperature. The giant tunnelling electroresistance, reliable switching reproducibility and long data retention observed in these metal/ferroelectric/semiconductor FTJs suggest their great potential in non-destructive readout non-volatile memories. © 2013 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

The stability of slope is influenced by multiple factors. It is one important subject to evaluate and predict the stability reasonably in the research of slope. Based on the approved grey correlation analysis and analytic hierarchy process (AHP), the comprehensive method is proposed to analyze the slope stability. According to the principle of grey correlation analysis, associate degree of slope stability is estimated and the slope grade is appraised by maximum correlation law. This method avoids the disadvantage that interval of the grade standards is not taken into account in traditional grey correlation analysis. The AHP of scale 3 is used to discuss the index weights; and precision of grey correlation analysis is improved. Case study shows that this method is reasonable and feasible to estimate slope stability.

In this paper, the improved version of Prewitt operator edge detection algorithm proposed which is based on the soft-threshold wavelet de-noising is aimed at processing the image with Gaussian white noise. A number of experiments show that this algorithm adds some advantages of wavelet de-noising, such as that the differential nature of the wavelet function can highlight the discontinuous edge of the image, The multi-resolution of wavelet transform overcome the contradiction between reduction of noise and the precision of edge positioning in the field of neighborhood selection. At the same time the wavelet transformation has the function of band-pass filter, and it can extraction the different levels of information. The improvement of algorithm combined by soft-thresholding wavelet de-noise and the conventional prewitt operator is a much better method than the conventional edge detection operator when it detects the edge of the image with White Gauss Noise.

In the moving sand dune of Horqin Sand Land (Inner Mongolia), the diversity of the soil macro-arthropod communities beneath the canopies of two shrub species (Caragana microphylla and Salix gordejevii) and in open areas was investigated in order to determine the effect of shrubs on these soil communities. The results showed that the shrubs facilitated the aggregation of soil macro-arthropods, resulting in significantly higher diversity and individual density of macro-arthropods in the soil beneath the shrub canopy compared to the open areas. This is known as the "bug island" effect. Although the dominant families in these three soil macro-arthropod communities were the same beneath the shrub canopy compared to open areas, many new macro-arthropod families also occurred in the shrub canopy communities, resulting in significant changes in the composition and structure of these soil communities. The "bug island" effect of the shrubs resulted from the "fertile island" effect generated by these shrubs, i.e., reduced wind velocity, retained dust and sand, increased soil litter biomass and soil moisture, improved soil texture and soil fertility. Between the two shrub species investigated C. microphylla had a greater "bug island" effect than S. gordejevii, as C. microphylla had a higher "fertile island" effect than S. gordejevii. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

On the basis of lanthanide metalloligands, [Ln(ODA)3] 3- (H2ODA = oxydiacetic acid), three series of d-f heterometallic metal-organic frameworks, {[Co(H2O) 6]·[Ln2(ODA)6Co2] ·6H2O}n [1; Ln = Gd (1a), Dy (1b), and Er (1c)], {[Ln2(ODA)6Cd3(H2O) 6]·mH2O}n [2; Ln = Pr (2a), Nd (2b), Sm (2c), Eu (2d), and Dy (2e), m = 9, 6, or 3], and {[Cd(H2O) 6]·[Ln2(ODA)6Cd2] ·mH2O}n [3; Ln = Dy (3a), Ho (3b), Er (3c), Tm (3d), and Lu (3e), m = 6 or 12], were designed and synthesized by a solvent volatilization and hydrothermal method. Magnetic investigation of 1 reveals the ferromagnetic interactions between the metal ions. In 2, LnIII ions occupied the inversion centers, which are confirmed by the fact that the emission intensity ratio of 5D0 → 7F 1 to 5D0 → 7F2 of the EuIII ion is much more than 3 in 2d. It is worth noting that, in 2d, the intensity ratio I(5D0→7F 1)/I(5D0→7F2) could decrease significantly upon the introduction of different hydrophilic guest molecules, which implies that the luminescent properties of 2d have a strong dependence on the geometry of the first coordination sphere of the Eu III ion. © 2014 American Chemical Society.
