    Plasmonic vesicle consists of multiple gold nanocrystals within a polymer coating or around a phospholipid core. As a multifunctional nanostructure, it has unique advantages of assembling small nanoparticles (< 5 nm) for ...
  • An Efficient Solution Algorithm For Space–Time Finite Element Method 

    Zhang, Rui; Wen, L.; Xiao, J.; Qian, Dong
    An efficient solution algorithm has been developed for space–time finite element method that is derived from time discontinuous Galerkin (TDG) formulation. The proposed algorithm features an iterative solver accelerated ...
