Carrier mobility (μ) at various back-gate biases is studied for n-and p-channel ultrathin (8 nm) SOI MOSFETs with thin (10 nm) buried oxide (BOX) and ground plane (GP). We found that μ did not deteriorate for either thin BOX or GP structure, even in the back channel (BC). We also found the largest μ enhancement effect in p-channel devices by the back-gate bias. As this enhancement effect could conceal the superior μ at the Si/SiO 2 interface, μ was maximized when both the front channel and BC were conducting. By contrast, μ in n-channel devices was maximized only when the BC was activated. This large μ gain in p-channel devices is promising for further CMOS scaling. © 2012 IEEE.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of circuit exercise training and detraining, which is defined by termination of training without additional physical activities, in type 2 diabetic patients. Elderly with type 2 diabetes were divided into a group that exercised for 1h three times a week for 12 weeks, followed by detraining for 8 weeks, or into a control group. Muscular strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, balance, body mass index (BMI), glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c), and blood lipid profile were measured. Of the 98 diabetic participants who joined this study, 37 patients completed the program (exercise group=24, control group=13). After training, muscular strength, flexibility, balance, agility, and endurance in the training group were significantly higher than at baseline and compared to the control group. HbA1c levels decreased in the training group. There was no significant improvement in BMI and blood lipid profile in either group. Flexibility and agility in the training group declined significantly after detraining. In spite of this decline, flexibility and agility were significantly higher compared to the baseline and to the control group. In type 2 diabetic patients, circuit training had a beneficial effect on the indices of physical function and glucose metabolism. Training resulted in good improvement; and during detraining, the effect of exercise training was maintained except in some parameters. © 2015 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.

To improve the breakdown voltage, we propose a SOI-based LDMOSFET with a trench structure in the drift region. Due to the trench oxide and underneath boron implanted layer, the surface electric field in the drift region effectively reduced. These effects resulted in the increment of breakdown voltage for the trenched LDMOS more than 100 V compared with the conventional device. However, the specific on-resistance, which has a trade-off relationship, is slightly increased. In addition to the trench oxide on the device performance, we also investigated the influence of n- drift to n+ drain junction spacing on the off-state breakdown voltage. The measured breakdown voltages were varied more than 50 V with different n- to n+ design spaces and achieved a maximum value at LDA = 2.0 μm. Moreover, the influence of field plate on the breakdown voltage of trench LDMOSFET was investigated. It is found that the optimum drain field plate over the field oxide is 8 μm. © 2009 Elsevier B.V.

Polysilicon layers acting as an absorption layer in a metal-semiconductor-metal (MSM) photodetector were post-annealed with various annealing processes to find the relationship between the morphology of polysilicon and the photo-response of the MSM photodetector. Among the processes, rapid thermal anneal (RTA) was a suitable post-annealing process because it supplied polysilicon layers having a smoother surface and a proper grain size for photon absorption. Therefore, MSM photodetectors that based on RTA-processed polysilicon showed a higher sensitivity for photocurrent detection and a stable Schottky contact barrier to lower the dark current and that are applicable to sensor systems. © 2016, The Korean Physical Society.

This study reviews recent literature related to grandparents' involvement and support for grandchildren with disabilities and their grandchil-drens' family. The literature reveals that grandparents' initial reactions are similar to parents' reactions of shock, anger, and grief when they learn a grandchild has a disability. Over time, grandparents become involved in their grandchild's family system, providing practical and emotional support. Factors that influence grandparents' support and involvement include residential proximity, their level of understanding of their grandchild's disability, and the affective solidarity between them and their adult child who is the parent of the grandchild. Grandparents' support and involvement is promoted when they have access to accurate information regarding their grandchild's disability, experience good communication exists between them and their adult child, and when support groups or workshops are available to them in their community. A variety of unexplored areas are identified where additional and longitudinal research may yield new and interesting information regarding our understanding of factors that effect grandparents' involvement and support in families with children with disabilities. © Taylor & Francis Group.

A control structure that makes possible the integration of a kinematic controller and a neuro-fuzzy network (NFN) dynamic controller for mobile robots is presented. A combined kinematic/dynamic control law is developed using backstepping and stability is guaranteed by Lyapunov theory. The NFN controller proposed in this work can deal with unmodeled bounded disturbances and/or unstructured unmodeled dynamic in the mobile robot. On-line NFN parameter tuning algorithms do no require off-line learning yet guarantee small tracking errors and bounded control signals are utilized. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2010.

The electrical behavior of metal-semiconductor-metal (MSM) Schottky barrier photodetector structure, depending on deuterium treatment, is analyzed by means of the dark current and the photocurrent measurements. Al/Ti bilayer was used as Schottky metal. The deuterium incorporation into the absorption layer, undoped polysilicon, was achieved with annealing process and with ion implantation process, respectively. In the photocurrent-to-dark current ratio measurement, deuterium-ionimplanted photodetector shows over hundred higher than the control device. It means that the heightening of the Schottky barrier and the passivation of grain boundary trap were achieved effectively through the deuterium ion implantation process.

This paper introduces a new method regarding deuterium incorporation in the gate dielectric including deuterium implantation and post-annealing at the back-end-of-the process line. The control device and the deuterium furnaceannealed device were also prepared for comparison with the implanted device. It was observed that deuterium implantation at a light dose of 1×10 12 - 1×10 14/cm 2 at 30 keV reduced hot-carrier injection (HCI) degradation and negative bias temperature instability (NBTI) within our device structure due to the reduction in oxide charge and interface trap. Deuterium implantation provides a possible solution to enhance the bulk and interface reliabilities of the gate oxide under the electrical stress. © 2012 KIEEME. All rights reserved.

La1-xSrxMnO3(LSM, 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5) powders as the air electrode for solid oxide fuel cell were synthesized by a glycinenitrate combustion process. The powders were then examined by X-ray diffraction(XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The as-formed powders were composed of very fine ash particles linked together in chains. X-ray maps of the LSM powders milled for 1.5 h showed that the metallic elements are homogeneously distributed inside each grain and in the different grains. The powder XRD patterns of the LSM with x < 0.3 showed a rhombohedral phase; the phase changes to the cubic phase at higher compositions(x ≥ 0.3) calcined in air at 1200oC for 4 h. Also, the SEM micrographs showed that the average grain size decreases as Sr content increases. Composite air electrodes made of 50/50 vol% of the resulting LSM powders and yttria stabilized zirconia(YSZ) powders were prepared by colloidal deposition technique. The electrodes were studied by ac impedance spectroscopy in order to improve the performance of a solid oxide fuel cell(SOFC). Reproducible impedance spectra were confirmed using the improved cell, which consisted of LSM-YSZ/YSZ. The composite electrode of LSM and YSZ was found to yield a lower cathodic resistivity than that of the non-composite one. Also, the addition of YSZ to the La1-xSrxMnO3 (0.1 ≤ x ≤ 0.2) electrode led to a pronounced, large decrease in the cathodic resistivity of the LSM-YSZ composite electrodes.
