Modular co-evolution of metabolic networksSep 06 2007The architecture of biological networks has been reported to exhibit high level of modularity, and to some extent, topological modules of networks overlap with known functional modules. However, how the modular topology of the molecular network affects ... More

Crossover from Room-temperature Double-channel Ballistic Transport to Single-channel Ballistic Transport in Zigzag Graphene NanoribbonsAug 02 2014Jan 08 2015Very recently, it was demonstrated explicitly that a zigzag graphene nanoribbon (GNR) exhibits a crossover of conductance from G0 to G0/2 with increasing the length (G0 = 2e2/h is the quantum of conductance) even at room-temperature [Baringhaus, et al. ...
