Improvement in the Electrical Performance of Ge-Doped InZnO Thin-Film Transistor.
In J Nanosci Nanotechnol, Oct 2015
In order to optimize the electrical properties of Ge-IZO TFTs, we tried to adjust the processing parameters and the best Ge-IZO TFT was obtained at a co-sputtering oxygen partial pressure of 2% and GeO2 target power of 10 W. The fabricated Ge-IZO TFT exhibited an on/off ratio of 3.0 x 10(7), a saturation mobility of 13.05 cm2/V·s, a subthreshold swing of 0.95 V/dec, and a threshold voltage of 0 V. XPS and XRD analyses of Ge-IZO films were performed to investigate the binding energies of atoms in Ge-IZO films and the crystallinity of the films.
The transcriptional programs of iNKT cells.
Boston, United States. In Semin Immunol, Feb 2015
As in MHC-restricted T cells, specific transcription factors are characteristic of functional subsets of iNKT cells, such as the transcription factor T-bet in the NKT1 subset.
Individual T helper cells have a quantitative cytokine memory.
Berlin, Germany. In Immunity, Feb 2015
Mechanistically, this memory resulted from quantitatively distinct transcription of individual alleles and was controlled by stable expression differences of the Th1 cell lineage-specifying transcription factor T-bet. Functionally, Th1 cells with graded IFN-γ production competence differentially activated Salmonella-infected macrophages for bacterial killing.
Is T-bet a potential therapeutic target in multiple sclerosis?
Columbus, United States. In J Interferon Cytokine Res, 2014
Work over the past several years suggests that the transcription factor T-bet appears to be an important factor in T cell encephalitogenicity; however, recent data suggest that it is also dispensable in certain situations, particularly for Th17 cells.
