Spontaneous light emission of wheat seedlings in leachate solutions

2009 SBMO/IEEE MTT-S International Microwave and Optoelectronics Conference (IMOC), 2009

The photon-counts of two series of wheat seedlings growing in landfill's leachate solutions are studied in respect to germination efficiency and spontaneous photon (biophoton) emission, evidencing the relation between biophotonic emission and the seedling's development and also the its variability.


Design of an XRF system for in vivo measurement of lead in bone

1995 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference Record, 1995

We are in the process of developing a faster, more accurate measurement system based on the latest techniques pioneered in astrophysics and synchrotron light source ...

Repair or buy a new one? The environmental consequences for electronics

IEEE International Symposium on Electronics and the Environment, 2003., 2003

It's a dogma that a long product lifetime is always an environmental benefit. But this is not always so in the case of electronics. The electronics sector contains active products, i.e. they consume electricity during use. A lower energy consumption in a new product may therefore "pay" for the total "fixed burden" of producing and disposing both the new and ...

  • Design of an XRF system for in vivo measurement of lead in bone

    The toxicological effects of lead in humans have been long known. The long- term exposure is best measured by the lead in bone, which is known to contain over 90% of the body's lead burden. We are in the process of developing a faster, more accurate measurement system based on the latest techniques pioneered in astrophysics and synchrotron light source research. We report here on the first phase of the program, which is aimed at determining the parameters for obtaining the maximum sensitivity with L X-ray fluorescence; a further phase will be concerned with K XRF. The studies are being carried out at the National Synchrotron Light Source at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL NSLS) using a monochromatic, polarized X-ray beam, tunable over the energy range from 8 keV (well below the L/sub III/ binding energy of 13.035 keV) to 30 keV (well above the L/sub I/ binding energy of 15.86 keV). We used cylindrical bone phantoms made from plaster of paris, doped with 17 ppm and 115 ppm of lead, and covered with 5 mm of Lucite to simulate the overlaying skin tissue. At an excitation energy of 16.5 keV, and with an available planar Ge detector in an XRF geometry that made effective use of the polarized beam, we were immediately able to measure 17 ppm of lead in bone phantom in a few minutes.

  • A signature-based liver cancer predictive system

    The predictive system presented in this paper employs both SOM and Hopfield nets to determine whether a given chemical agent causes cancer in the liver. The SOM net performs the clustering of the training set and delivers a signature for each cluster. Hopfield net treats each signature as an exemplar and learns the exemplars. Each record of the test set is considered a corrupted signature. The Hopfield net tries to un-corrupt the test record using learned exemplars and map it to one of the signatures and consequently to the prediction value associated with the signature. Four pairs of training and test sets are used to test the system. To establish the validity of the new predictive system, its performance is compared with the performance of the discriminant analysis and the rough sets methodology applied on the same datasets.

  • Repair or buy a new one? The environmental consequences for electronics

    It's a dogma that a long product lifetime is always an environmental benefit. But this is not always so in the case of electronics. The electronics sector contains active products, i.e. they consume electricity during use. A lower energy consumption in a new product may therefore "pay" for the total "fixed burden" of producing and disposing both the new and old products. The dynamics of this mechanism has been investigated by an LCA screening of four product groups: televisions, PCs, mobile phones and frequency converters. Two product generations into the future were included in terms of the prevailing expectations for technological innovation. The environmental effects of new technology on these four product groups were assessed to determine the best environmental choice between the following two scenarios: buy a new product and dispose of the old one, or, prolong the life of the product through repair. This paper discusses methods and results, including the best purchase strategy or the best repair strategy.

  • Chemo-optical sensor for toxic gases detection

    Many applications in the field of toxicology and laboratory medicine as well as some air pollution applications require low concentrations levels for toxic gas detection and its real-time monitoring. The authors have designed and manufactured an experimental integrated chemo-optical sensor on silicon containing a sol-gel layer, a silicon nitride waveguide and a silicon photodiode. The first measurements realized on an experimental structure show a good correlation with the requirements of the Romanian standards in the fields as well as EPA standards

  • Nearly Poisson transfer traffic in real-time networks

    Consideration is given to a homogeneous distributed network of nodes with a quasi-dynamic random task-sharing discipline and identical Poisson hard real- time traffic at each node. The task-sharing discipline under consideration permits tasks to be shared randomly around the network as long as remaining task laxity permits. Analysis of task loss in such a network requires the assumption that the transferred task stream from all nodes form a Poisson stream. The authors study the requirements for such an assumption to be justified by using computer simulation to examine transferred traffic for both independence and its fit to an exponential distribution as a function of network size. A rough rule of thumb for estimating independence is to assume the transfers are independent after the system size exceeds the average number of transfers between nodes.<<ETX>>

  • An automated microphysiological assay for toxicity evaluation

    Screening a newly developed drug, food additive or cosmetic ingredient for toxicity is a critical preliminary step before it can move forward in the development pipeline. Due to the sometimes dire consequences when a harmful agent is overlooked, toxicologists work under strict guidelines to effectively catalogue and classify new chemical agents. Conventional assays involve long experimental hours and many manual steps that increase the probability of user error; errors that can potentially manifest as inaccurate toxicology results. Automated assays can overcome many potential mistakes that arise due to human error. In the presented work, we created and validated a novel, automated platform for a microphysiological assay that can examine cellular attributes with sensors measuring changes in cellular metabolic rate, oxygen consumption, and vitality mediated by exposure to a potentially toxic agent. The system was validated with low buffer culture medium with varied conductivities that caused changes in the measured impedance on integrated impedance electrodes.

  • The audio frontier [computer audio engineers' retreat]

    Hardware and software engineers who work in the Wild West of computer audio gather annually at a Texas ranch to tackle their collective challenges, spend the nights in jam sessions, and commune with the emus. This paper describes the seventh annual Project Bar-B-Q, an offbeat and influential three-day retreat for leaders in the field of audio engineering. Their aim is to improve computer audio, and make consumers care more about computer audio in the first place. This long weekend is an opportunity for competitors to work together on divining the challenges that face them collectively.

  • The influence of the stacked and double material gate structures on the short channel effects in SOI MOSFETs

    An asymmetric dual metal stack gate (DMSG) SOI MOSFET transistor has been investigated for its enhanced electrical characteristics. A 2-D physical model has been proposed and its results have been confirmed by those obtained by simulation. These results predict better short channel effects such as drain induced barrier lowering (DIBL) characteristics and hot carrier effects for this device compared to those for the conventional SOI MOSFET.
