  10. Reflective optics system for uniform spherical illumination.

    PubMed

    Phipps, C R; Bodner, S E; Shearer, J W

    1975-04-01

    A reflective optical system is described that permits nearly uniform illumination of a small sphere with one or two laser beams. The primary application of this device is to studies of laser-driven implosion of small targets. Other applications include the production of plasma by optical breakdown of gases for spectroscopic studies and for optimum light collection in intensity-limited plasma diagnostics. Simple calculations show that the intensity mapping properties of this system are not excessively sensitive to variations in the radial intensity distribution nor to departures from diffraction-limited propagation in the input beams. Optical damage and the illuminated solid angle required at the focus determine the size of the device. PMID:20135009

  11. Describing Nanomaterials: A Uniform Description System

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Rumble, John; Freiman, Steve; Teague, Clayton

    2014-03-01

    Products involving nanomaterials are growing rapidly and nanoparticles also occur naturally. Materials, scientists, engineers, health officials, and regulators have realized they need a common description system. Led by CODATA and VAMAS, a Uniform Description System (UDS) for nanomaterials is being developed to meet the requirements of a broad range of scientific and technical disciplines and different user communities. The goal of the CODATA/VAMAS effort is the creation of a complete set of descriptors that can be used by all communities, e.g., materials, physics, chemistry, agricultural, medical, etc., interested in nanomaterials. The description system must be relevant to researchers, manufacturers of nanomaterials, materials selectors, and regulators. The purpose of the UDS for materials on the nanoscale is twofold: Uniqueness and Equivalency. The first step in the development of the UDS has been the creation of a Framework that will be used by the different communities to guide in the selection of descriptors relevant to their needs. This talk is a brief description of the draft of such a Framework, and how the framework will be translated into a robust description system with input from many scientific communities including physics.

  13. Improving feature size uniformity from interference lithography systems with non-uniform intensity profiles

    2013-11-01

    The non-uniform intensity profile of Gaussian-like laser beams used in interference lithography (IL) leads to a non-uniform dose and feature size distribution across the sample. Previously described methods to improve dose uniformity are reviewed. However, here we examine the behavior of the non-uniformity from the viewpoint of photoresist response rather than the IL system configuration. Samples with a fixed intra-sample dose profile were exposed with an increasing average dose. A line/space pattern with a period of 240 nm across an area of 2 × 2 cm2 was produced using IL on identical samples using a HeCd laser operated at 325 nm and a Lloyd’s mirror IL system. A binary model of photoresist response predicts that the absolute range of line widths in nanometers should be significantly reduced as the overall sample dose is increased. We have experimentally verified a reduction in the range of line widths within a given sample from 50 to 16 nm as the overall dose is increased by only 60%. This resulted in a drop in the narrowest line width from 120 to 65 nm. An etch process is demonstrated to increase the line width by generating a wider secondary chrome hard mask from the narrowly patterned primary chrome hard mask. The subsequent fabrication of a silicon nanoimprint mold is used as a demonstration of the technique.

    The image plane illumination nonuniformity caused by optical system or detector will affect the detection precision of photoelectric imaging system, especially in image guidance, positioning and recognition. An image plane illumination uniformity measurement device was set up, which was characteristiced of high uniformity and wide dynamic range. The device was composed of an asymmetric integrating sphere,the image collection and processing system, as well as the electrical control system.The asymmetric integrating sphere had two different radius,which was respectively 800mm and 1000mm.The spectral region was (0.4~1.1)μm, the illumination range was (1×10-4~2×104)lx. The image collection and processing system had two different acquisition card,which were respectively used for analog and digital signals. The software can process for dynamic image or static image. The TracePro software was used to make a internal ray tracing of integrating sphere, the illumination uniformity at the export was simulated for the size of 330mm×230mm and Φ 100mm export, the results were respectively 97.95% and 98.33%. Then,an illuminometer was used to measure the actual illumination uniformity of integrating sphere, the result was shown the actual illumination uniformity was 98.8%. Finally, a visible photoelectric imaging system was tested ,and three different uniformity indicators results were given.

  16. Coherent electron backscattering interference in non-uniform disordered systems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Chang, L.; Wu, G. Y.

    2011-08-01

    We study the coherent electron backscattering interference in the presence of electron dephasing in 2D/3D non-uniform (NU) disordered systems, within our virtual electron trap scattering (VETS) model, where the dephasing rate 1/ τφ is taken to be due to the inelastic electron-electron or electron-phonon scattering. A possible saturation mechanism of apparent electronic dephasing is examined. The system considered is composed of two kinds of subsystems, namely, L-islands and H-region with contrasting diffusion constants, of which the L-islands (of low diffusion constant) act as virtual electron traps randomly dispersed in the percolating H-background (of high diffusion constant). The physics of VETS model is characterized by the two important dwell times, τf and τb, with τf/ τb being the mean duration for which an electron wanders in the H-region/L-island before it leaves the region, respectively. In order to make connection with experiments, we introduce the notion of an effective system of uniform ( U) disorder with a dephasing time τφ(effective), which simulates in the aspect of backscattering the NU system being studied. The effective dephasing time τφ(effective) thus introduced is a function of τφ, and the function, τφ(effective)( τφ), is derived and examined. If τb≫ τf, an interesting phenomenon occurs in the range of temperature ( T) where the true dephasing time τφ( T) lies between τf and τb, i.e., τf< τφ( T)< τb. In this case, we obtain τφ(effective)( τφ)≈ τf, which is insensitive to the variation in τφ (or T) and shows the signature of τφ(effective) saturation. However, at the further lowered temperature where τφ( T)≥ τb, τφ(effective) rises up sharply without being saturated.

  19. Non-uniform system response detection for hyperspectral imaging systems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Castorena, Juan; Morrison, Jason; Paliwal, Jitendra; Erkinbaev, Chyngyz

    2015-11-01

    Near infrared (NIR) hyperspectral imaging (HSI) has established itself as a powerful non-destructive tool for the chemical analysis of heterogeneous samples. However, one of the main disadvantages of NIR HSI is that the technique suffers from instrumentation-related problems, which in turn affect the acquired images. In general, focal plane array (FPA) based hyperspectral systems are affected by spatial and spectral non-uniform response, the presence of defective sensors (e.g. dead or saturated sensors), and temporal and spatial (e.g. dark current) noise. Another issue is each new camera system needs to be calibrated to assess its specific responses to light. To correct for these issues, we used known standards to measure the response of the sensors and capture the location of the field of view and defective sensors using linear and quadratic models. The parameters of these models were then used as input features for classification of sensor responses using a k-means algorithm. The results conclude that linear models are insufficiently precise for calibration but estimate sufficiently accurately the system's response and functionality. Specifically, it was shown that the classification method discriminates non-responsive regions effectively.

  20. Application of uniform design to improve dental implant system.

    Cheng, Yung-Chang; Lin, Deng-Huei; Jiang, Cho-Pei

    2015-01-01

    This paper introduces the application of uniform experimental design to improve dental implant systems subjected to dynamic loads. The dynamic micromotion of the Zimmer dental implant system is calculated and illustrated by explicit dynamic finite element analysis. Endogenous and exogenous factors influence the success rate of dental implant systems. Endogenous factors include: bone density, cortical bone thickness and osseointegration. Exogenous factors include: thread pitch, thread depth, diameter of implant neck and body size. A dental implant system with a crest module was selected to simulate micromotion distribution and stress behavior under dynamic loads using conventional and proposed methods. Finally, the design which caused minimum micromotion was chosen as the optimal design model. The micromotion of the improved model is 36.42 μm, with an improvement is 15.34% as compared to the original model. PMID:26406045

  7. Disappearing act: decay of uniform resource locators in health care management journals

    PubMed Central

    Wagner, Cassie; Gebremichael, Meseret D.; Soltys, Michael J.

    2009-01-01

    Objectives: This study examines the problem of decay of uniform resource locators (URLs) in health care management journals and seeks to determine whether continued availability at a given URL relates to the date of publication, the type of resource, or the top-level URL domain. Methods: The authors determined the availability of web-based resources cited in articles published in five source journals from 2002 to 2004. The data were analyzed using correlation, chi-square, and descriptive statistics. Attempts were made to locate the unavailable resources. Results: After checking twice, 49.3% of the original 2,011 cited resources could not be located at the cited URL. The older the article, the more likely that URLs in the reference list of that article were inactive (r = −0.62, P<0.001, n = 1,968). There was no difference in availability across resource types (χ2 = 5.28, df = 2, P = 0.07, n = 1,786). Whether an URL was active varied by top-level domain (χ2 = 14.92, df = 4, P = 0.00, n = 1,786). Conclusions: URL decay is a serious problem in health care management journals. In addition to using website archiving tools like WebCite, publishers should require authors to both keep copies of Internet-based information they used and deposit copies of data with the publishers.

  13. Travelling waves in boundary-controlled, non-uniform, cascaded lumped systems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    O'Connor, William J.; Zhu, Ming

    2013-08-01

    A companion paper considers travelling and standing waves in cascaded, lumped, mass-spring systems, controlled by two boundary actuators, one at each end, when the system is uniform. It first proposes definitions of waves in finite lumped systems. It then shows how to control the actuators to establish desired waves from rest, and to maintain them despite disturbances. The present paper extends this work to the more general, non-uniform case, when mass and spring values can be arbitrary. A special "bi-uniform" case is first studied, consisting of two different uniform cascaded systems in series, with an obvious, uncontrolled, impedance mismatch where they meet. The paper shows how boundary actuator control systems can be designed to establish, and robustly maintain, apparently pure travelling waves of constant amplitude in either the first or the second uniform section, in each case with an appropriate, partial, standing wave pattern in the other section. Then a more general non-uniform case is studied. A definition of a "pure travelling wave" in non-uniform systems is proposed. Curiously, it does not imply constant amplitude motion. It does however yield maximum power transfer between boundary actuators. The definition, and its implementation in a control system, involves extending the notions of "pure" travelling waves, of standing waves, and of input and output impedances of sources and loads, when applied to non-uniform lumped systems. Practical, robust control strategies are presented for all cases.

    1995-12-31

    This paper presents a non-uniform composite representation of hydroelectric systems for use in long-term hydrothermal scheduling. This representation was developed from reservoir operational rules based on optimal reservoir trajectories obtained with a deterministic hydrothermal scheduling algorithm. A test system consisting of {tau} large hydroelectric plants of the Southeast Brazilian Power System with 12,572 MW of installed power capacity was selected for a case study. Operational cost comparisons with the classical uniform composite representation reveal significant savings.

  16. Demand Assignment in the ACTS LBR System

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    White, Lawrence W.; Palmer, Larry C.

    1990-01-01

    On the Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS) being developed at NASA Lewis, low-burst-rate (LBR) traffic stations will access the ACTS multibeam package via two hopping beams that can be directed at certain areas in the continental U.S. An onboard baseband processor (BBP) demodulates uplink traffic, switches it between uplink and downlink beams at baseband, and then remodulates it for retransmission at 20 GHz. This study describes the demand-assigned operation of the ACTS LBR system, where the onboard switch is remote from both traffic stations and master control station (MCS). Network control uses inbound and outbound orderwire channels and a BBP control channel, allowing the MCS to coordinate assignment of individual 64-kb/s spacecraft channels. Models are developed to simulate the dynamics of the assignment process and verify the call blocking behavior, to predict control channel loads, and to evaluate algorithms for burst time plan rearrangement.

    A series of ten task levels of increasing difficulty was compiled for use in comparative performance evaluations of available and future robotics technology. Each level has a breakdown of ten additional levels of difficulty to provide a layering of 100 levels. It is assumed that each level of task performance must be achieved by the system before it can be appropriately considered for the next level.

  18. A uniform approach for programming distributed heterogeneous computing systems

    PubMed Central

    Grasso, Ivan; Pellegrini, Simone; Cosenza, Biagio; Fahringer, Thomas

    2014-01-01

    Large-scale compute clusters of heterogeneous nodes equipped with multi-core CPUs and GPUs are getting increasingly popular in the scientific community. However, such systems require a combination of different programming paradigms making application development very challenging. In this article we introduce libWater, a library-based extension of the OpenCL programming model that simplifies the development of heterogeneous distributed applications. libWater consists of a simple interface, which is a transparent abstraction of the underlying distributed architecture, offering advanced features such as inter-context and inter-node device synchronization. It provides a runtime system which tracks dependency information enforced by event synchronization to dynamically build a DAG of commands, on which we automatically apply two optimizations: collective communication pattern detection and device-host-device copy removal. We assess libWater’s performance in three compute clusters available from the Vienna Scientific Cluster, the Barcelona Supercomputing Center and the University of Innsbruck, demonstrating improved performance and scaling with different test applications and configurations.

  2. Design and construction of uniform glow discharge plasma system operating under atmospheric condition

    SciTech Connect

    Kocum, C.; Ayhan, H.

    2007-06-15

    The design of a uniform glow discharge plasma system operating without vacuum is presented. A full-bridge switching circuit was used to switch the transformers. The primary windings of transformers were connected in parallel, but in opposite phase to double the output voltage. Theoretically, 20 000 V{sub pp} was obtained. Rectangle copper electrodes were used, and placed parallel to each other. To prevent the spark production that is, to obtain uniformity, two 2 mm Teflon sheets were glued to the electrodes. However, it was observed that the operating frequency also affected the uniformity. For the system presented here, the frequency at which more uniformity was obtained was found to be 14 kHz.

  7. ACTS advanced system concepts and experimentation

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Abbe, Brian S.; Theofylaktos, Noulie

    1993-01-01

    Over the course of the first two years of experimentation with the Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS), many different K/Ka-band applications-oriented experiments will be conducted and evaluated for their commercial viability. In addition, the technological developments and advanced systems concepts associated with the various terminals and the satellite itself will also be examined. Beyond these existing experiments and the current terminal developments, many other new and exciting experiment ideas and advanced system concepts exist. With the additional use of ACTS for the last two years of its lifetime, many of these ideas could be explored. In the mobile satellite communications arena, a particular applications-oriented concept that has yet to be developed is a maritime-mobile experiment. Applications of K/Ka-band mobile satcom technologies to the pleasure cruise industry could provide similar communications services as those that are being developed for the broadband aeronautical experiments. A second applications-oriented experiment that could be of interest is the development of a hybrid satellite-cellular system experiment. In such an experimental system, a mobile K/Ka-band satellite service would extend the coverage of the already existing cellular network. Many new system concepts and terminal developments could also be accomplished. The initial characterization of the K/Ka-band mobile satellite communications propagation channel and evaluation of the currently existing rain compensation algorithms (RCA's) could lead to a second generation RCA development that would improve the overall ACTS Mobile Terminal (AMT) performance. In addition, the development of an enhanced modem to be used with the AMT that utilizes CDMA spread spectrum would also improve the overall terminal efficiency and provide a greater commercial potential for K/Ka-band applications. Other techniques worthy of further exploration and evaluation include the development of

  11. Design of optical system for collimating the light of an LED uniformly.

    PubMed

    Chen, Chen; Zhang, Xiaohui

    2014-05-01

    A type of optical system consisting of one total internal reflection (TIR) lens and two reflectors is designed for collimating the light of an LED to a uniform pattern. Application of this kind of optical system includes underwater light communication and an underwater image system. The TIR lens collimates all the light of the LED to a nonuniform plane wavefront. The double-reflector system redistributes the plane wavefront uniformly and collimates again. Three optical systems that produce a different radius of the output light patterns are designed. The simulation result shows that the uniformity of the designed optical system is greater than 0.76, and the total output efficiency (TOE) is greater than 89%. At the same time, we conclude that the radius of the output reflector should not be smaller than that of the input reflector in order to keep high uniformity and TOE. One of the designed optical systems is fabricated by computer numeric control, and the experiment results satisfy that goal. PMID:24979645

  17. An optical system to transform the output beam of a quantum cascade laser to be uniform

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Jacobson, Jordan M.

    Quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) are a candidate for calibration sources in space-based remote sensing applications. However, the output beam from a QCL has some characteris- tics that are undesirable in a calibration source. The output beam from a QCL is polarized, both temporally and spatially coherent, and has a non-uniform bivariate Gaussian prole. These characteristics need to be mitigated before QCLs can be used as calibration sources. This study presents the design and implementation of an optical system that manipulates the output beam from a QCL so that it is spatially and angularly uniform with reduced coherence and polarization.

  18. Clinical characterization of a proton beam continuous uniform scanning system with dose layer stacking

    Farr, J. B.; Mascia, A. E.; Hsi, W.-C.; Allgower, C. E.; Jesseph, F.; Schreuder, A. N.; Wolanski, M.; Nichiporov, D. F.; Anferov, V.

    2008-01-01

    A proton beam delivery system on a gantry with continuous uniform scanning and dose layer stacking at the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute has been commissioned and accepted for clinical use. This paper was motivated by a lack of guidance on the testing and characterization for clinical uniform scanning systems. As such, it describes how these tasks were performed with a uniform scanning beam delivery system. This paper reports the methods used and important dosimetric characteristics of radiation fields produced by the system. The commissioning data include the transverse and longitudinal dose distributions, penumbra, and absolute dose values. Using a 208 MeV cyclotron’s proton beam, the system provides field sizes up to 20 and 30 cm in diameter for proton ranges in water up to 27 and 20 cm, respectively. The dose layer stacking method allows for the flexible construction of spread-out Bragg peaks with uniform modulation of up to 15 cm in water, at typical dose rates of 1–3 Gy∕min. For measuring relative dose distributions, multielement ion chamber arrays, small-volume ion chambers, and radiographic films were employed. Measurements during the clinical commissioning of the system have shown that the lateral and longitudinal dose uniformity of 2.5% or better can be achieved for all clinically important field sizes and ranges. The measured transverse penumbra widths offer a slight improvement in comparison to those achieved with a double scattering beam spreading technique at the facility. Absolute dose measurements were done using calibrated ion chambers, thermoluminescent and alanine detectors. Dose intercomparisons conducted using various types of detectors traceable to a national standards laboratory indicate that the measured dosimetry data agree with each other within 5%. PMID:19070228

  1. Optimization of optical systems for LED spot lights concerning the color uniformity

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Teupner, Anne; Bergenek, Krister; Wirth, Ralph; Miñano, Juan C.; Benítez, Pablo

    2014-09-01

    Spotlighting is one illumination field where the application of light emitting diodes (LED) creates many advantages. Commonly, the system for spot lights consists of a LED light engine and collimating secondary optics. Through angular or spatial separated emitted light from the source and imaging optical elements, a non uniform far field appears with colored rings, dots or patterns. Many feasible combinations result in very different spatial color distributions. Several combinations of three multi-chip light sources and secondary optical elements like reflectors and TIR lenses with additional facets or scattering elements were analyzed mainly regarding the color uniformity. They are assessed by the merit function Usl which was derived from human factor experiments and describes the color uniformity based on the visual perception of humans. Furthermore, the optical systems are compared concerning efficiency, peak candela and aspect ratio. Both types of optics differ in the relation between the color uniformity level and other properties. A plain reflector with a slightly color mixing light source performs adequate. The results for the TIR lenses indicate that they need additional elements for good color mixing or blended light source. The most convenient system depends on the requirements of the application.

  7. Optimization, Characterization and Commissioning of a Novel Uniform Scanning Proton Beam Delivery System

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Mascia, Anthony Edward

    Purpose: To develop and characterize the required detectors for uniform scanning optimization and characterization, and to develop the methodology and assess their efficacy for optimizing, characterizing and commissioning a novel proton beam uniform scanning system. Methods and Materials: The Multi Layer Ion Chamber (MLIC), a 1D array of vented parallel plate ion chambers, was developed in-house for measurement of longitudinal profiles. The Matrixx detector (IBA Dosimetry, Germany) and XOmat V film (Kodak, USA) were characterized for measurement of transverse profiles. The architecture of the uniform scanning system was developed and then optimized and characterized for clinical proton radiotherapy. Results: The MLIC detector significantly increased data collection efficiency without sacrificing data quality. The MLIC was capable of integrating an entire scanned and layer stacked proton field with one measurement, producing results with the equivalent spatial sampling of 1.0mm. The Matrixx detector and modified 1D water phantom jig improved data acquisition efficiency and complemented the film measurements. The proximal, central and distal proton field planes were measured using these methods, yielding better than 3% uniformity. The binary range modulator was programmed, optimized and characterized such that the proton field ranges were separated by approximately 5.0mm modulation width and delivered with an accuracy of 1.0mm in water. Several wobbling magnet scan patterns were evaluated and the raster pattern, spot spacing, scan amplitude and overscan margin were optimized for clinical use. Conclusion: Novel detectors and methods are required for clinically efficient optimization and characterization of proton beam scanning systems. Uniform scanning produces proton beam fields that are suited for clinical proton radiotherapy.

  12. Gravitational Influences on Flame Propagation Through Non-Uniform, Premixed Gas Systems

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Miller, Fletcher J.; Easton, John; Marchese, Anthony; Hovermann, Fred

    2003-01-01

    Flame propagation through non-uniformly premixed (or layered) gases has importance both in useful combustion systems and in unintentional fires. As summarized recently and in previous Microgravity Workshop papers, non-uniform premixed gas combustion receives scant attention compared to the more usual limiting cases of diffusion or uniformly premixed flames, especially regarding the role gravity plays. This paper summarizes our recent findings on gravitational effects on layered combustion along a floor, in which the fuel concentration gradient exists normal to the direction of flame spread. In an effort to understand the mechanism by which the flames spread faster in microgravity (and much faster, in laboratory coordinates, than the laminar burning velocity for uniform mixtures), we have begun making pressure measurements across the spreading flame front that are described here. Earlier researchers, testing in 1g, claimed that hydrostatic pressure differences could account for the rapid spread rates. Additionally, we present the development of a new apparatus to study flame spread in free (i.e., far from walls), non-homogeneous fuel layers formed in a flow tunnel behind an airfoil that has been tested in normal gravity.

  13. The Implementation of non-uniformity correction in multi-TDICCD imaging system

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Zhai, Guofang; Cheng, Yun; Han, Zhixue; Wang, Dong

    2015-10-01

    Abstract—a non-uniformity correction algorithm is proposed and implemented on a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) hardware platform to solve a problem of pixel response non-uniformity(PRNU) for multiple Time Delay and Integration Charge Couple Device(TDICCD) camera. The non-uniformity is introduced and a synthetical correction algorithm is presented, in which the two-point correction method is applied to a single channel, gain averaging correction method among multi-channel and scene-adaptive correction method among multiple-TDICCD. Then, the correction algorithm is generated. Finally, the FPGA ability for fix-point processing is analyzed; the correction algorithm is optimized, and implemented on FPGA. Testing results indicate that the non-uniformity can be decreased from 8.27% to 0.51% for three TDICCDs camera's images with this proposed correction algorithm, proving that this correction algorithm is with high real-time performance, great engineering realization and satisfaction for the system requirements.

  14. Beam characteristics in two different proton uniform scanning systems: A side-by-side comparison

    PubMed Central

    Nichiporov, Dmitri; Hsi, Wen; Farr, Jonathan

    2012-01-01

    Purpose: To compare clinically relevant dosimetric characteristics of proton therapy fields produced by two uniform scanning systems that have a number of similar hardware components but employ different techniques of beam spreading. Methods: This work compares two technologically distinct systems implementing a method of uniform scanning and layer stacking that has been developed independently at Indiana University (IU) and by Ion Beam Applications, S. A. (IBA). Clinically relevant dosimetric characteristics of fields produced by these systems are studied, such as beam range control, peak-to-entrance ratio (PER), lateral penumbra, field flatness, effective source position, precision of dose delivery at different gantry angles, etc. Results: Under comparable conditions, both systems controlled beam range with an accuracy of 0.5 mm and a precision of 0.1 mm. Compared to IBA, the IU system produced pristine peaks with a slightly higher PER (3.23 and 3.45, respectively) and smaller, symmetrical, lateral in-air penumbra of 1 mm compared to about 1.9/2.4 mm in the inplane/crossplane (IP/CP) directions for IBA. Large field flatness results in the IP/CP directions were similar: 3.0/2.4% for IU and 2.9/2.4% for IBA. The IU system featured a longer virtual source-to-isocenter position, which was the same for the IP and CP directions (237 cm), as opposed to 212/192 cm (IP/CP) for IBA. Dose delivery precision at different gantry angles was higher in the IBA system (0.5%) than in the IU system (1%). Conclusions: Each of the two uniform scanning systems considered in this work shows some attractive performance characteristics while having other features that can be further improved. Overall, radiation field characteristics of both systems meet their clinical specifications and show comparable results. Most of the differences observed between the two systems are clinically insignificant. PMID:22559626

    2008-06-01

    We present the experimental setup and the results of the gas gain uniformity tests performed as part of the quality control of the multiwire proportional chambers produced at CERN for the LHCb muon system. The test provides a relative gas gain measurement over the whole chamber sensitive area. It is based on the analysis of the pulse height spectrum obtained when the chamber is exposed to a 241Am radioactive source. Since the measurement is normalized to the peak of a precise pulse generator, the gain uniformity can also be evaluated among different gas gaps and different chambers. In order to cope with the specific requirements related to the relatively high number of chambers and to their varying geometry, a standalone and compact data acquisition system has been developed which is programmable at the hardware level and may be applied to many other applications requiring precise time-to-digital and analog-to-digital conversion, in correlated or non-correlated mode.

  17. Radiometric calibration of frame transfer CCD camera with uniform source system

    2010-08-01

    This paper presents a radiometric calibration method based on visibility function and uniform source system. The uniform system is mainly comprised of an integrating sphere and a monitoring silicon detector. The current of the silicon detector with a visibility function filter corresponds to the luminance at the exit port of integrating sphere through standard luminance meter transfer. The radiance at the camera entrance pupil is calculated for different solar zenith angles and Earth surface albedos by the MODTRAN atmospheric code. To simplify the calibration process, the radiance at its entrance pupil is integrated by visibility function. The shift smear of the frame transfer CCD is removed by the radiometric calibration and the amending ratio factor is introduced in the retrieving methods. The imaging experiment verifies the reliability of the calibration method and retrieves good quality image.

    Conover, David R.; Crawford, Aladsair J.; Viswanathan, Vilayanur V.; Ferreira, Summer; Schoenwald, David

    2014-06-01

    The Protocol for Uniformly Measuring and Expressing the Performance of Energy Storage Systems (PNNL-22010) was first issued in November 2012 as a first step toward providing a foundational basis for developing an initial standard for the uniform measurement and expression of energy storage system (ESS) performance. Its subsequent use in the field and review by the protocol working group and most importantly the users’ subgroup and the thermal subgroup has led to the fundamental modifications reflected in this update of the 2012 Protocol. As an update of the 2012 Protocol, this document (the June 2014 Protocol) is intended to supersede its predecessor and be used as the basis for measuring and expressing ESS performance. The foreword provides general and specific details about what additions, revisions, and enhancements have been made to the 2012 Protocol and the rationale for them in arriving at the June 2014 Protocol.

  19. Optimal uniform-damping ratio controller for sequential design of multivariable systems

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Shieh, Leang G.; Liu, Zhen; Sunkel, John W.

    1991-01-01

    An optimal uniform-damping ratio controller is developed for the sequential design of a multivariable control system so that the designed closed-loop poles of the respective multivariable system and reduced-order observer are exactly placed on the negative real axis and/or the boundaries of desired sectors with constant-damping ratios. The functions in the quadratic performance index to be minimized are chosen as a combination of the weighted outputs, reduced states and inputs. Also, the optimal uniform-damping ratio controller is a combination of optimal output-feedback and optimal reduced-order state-feedback controllers. A numerical example is given to demonstrate the design procedure.

    Point spread function (PSF) phantoms based on unstructured distributions of sub-resolution particles in a transparent matrix have been demonstrated as a useful tool for evaluating resolution and its spatial variation across image volumes in optical coherence tomography (OCT) systems. Measurements based on PSF phantoms have the potential to become a standard test method for consistent, objective and quantitative inter-comparison of OCT system performance. Towards this end, we have evaluated three PSF phantoms and investigated their ability to compare the performance of four OCT systems. The phantoms are based on 260-nm-diameter gold nanoshells, 400-nm-diameter iron oxide particles and 1.5-micron-diameter silica particles. The OCT systems included spectral-domain and swept source systems in free-beam geometries as well as a time-domain system in both free-beam and fiberoptic probe geometries. Results indicated that iron oxide particles and gold nanoshells were most effective for measuring spatial variations in the magnitude and shape of PSFs across the image volume. The intensity of individual particles was also used to evaluate spatial variations in signal intensity uniformity. Significant system-to-system differences in resolution and signal intensity and their spatial variation were readily quantified. The phantoms proved useful for identification and characterization of irregularities such as astigmatism. Our multi-system results provide evidence of the practical utility of PSF-phantom-based test methods for quantitative inter-comparison of OCT system resolution and signal uniformity. PMID:25071949

  1. Simple motion systems and Banach spaces associated to uniformly bounded representations

    Mayer, Matthias; Saller, Christian

    1999-07-01

    Given a uniformly bounded representation of a locally compact group, we consider the closed circled convex hull K of the orbit of a vector. We call K a simple motion system (SMS) and endow its linear hull with the Minkowski functional of K. The representation theory on these ‘SMS-spaces’ is discussed, in particular for C0-representations, for irreducible representations of connected groups and for integrable representations. As an application we give a criterion for the decomposibility of representations.

    In the exposure process, the intensity and uniformity of light in the exposure area directly influenced the precision of products. UV-LED (Ultraviolet Light-Emitting Diode) exposure system was established to reduce the radiation leakage and increase the energy efficiency for energy saving. It is a trend that conventional mercury lamp could be replaced with UV-LED exposure system. This study was based on the law of conservation of energy and law of refraction of optical field distributing on the target plane. With these, a freeform lens with uniform light field of main exposure area could be designed. The light outside the exposure area could be concentrated into the area to improve the intensity of light. The refraction index and UV transmittance of Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is 1.43 at 385 nm wavelength and 85-90%, respectively. The PDMS was used to fabricate the optics lens for UV-LEDs. The average illumination and the uniformity could be obtained by increasing the number of UV-LEDs and the spacing of different arrangement modes. After exposure process with PDMS lens, about 5% inaccuracy was obtained. Comparing to 10% inaccuracy of general exposure system, it shows that it is available to replace conventional exposure lamp with using UV-LEDs.

  15. Precipitation response of monsoon low-pressure systems to an idealized uniform temperature increase

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Sørland, Silje Lund; Sorteberg, Asgeir; Liu, Changhai; Rasmussen, Roy

    2016-06-01

    The monsoon low-pressure systems (LPSs) are one of the most rain-bearing synoptic-scale systems developing during the Indian monsoon. We have performed high-resolution, convection-permitting experiments of 10 LPS cases with the Weather Research and Forecasting regional model, to investigate the effect of an idealized uniform temperature increase on the LPS intensification and precipitation. Perturbed runs follow a surrogate climate change approach, in which a uniform temperature perturbation is specified, but the large-scale flow and relative humidity are unchanged. The differences between control and perturbed simulations are therefore mainly due to the imposed warming and moisture changes and their feedbacks to the synoptic-scale flow. Results show that the LPS precipitation increases by 13%/K, twice the imposed moisture increase, which is on the same order as the Clausius-Clapeyron relation. This large precipitation increase is attributed to the feedbacks in vertical velocity and atmospheric stability, which together account for the high sensitivity. In the perturbed simulations the LPSs have higher propagation speeds and are more intense. The storms intensification to the uniform temperature perturbation can be interpreted in terms of the conditional instability of second kind mechanism where the condensational heating increases along with low-level convergence and vertical velocity in response to temperature and moisture increases. As a result, the surface low deepens.

  16. A precise model of LED lighting and its application in uniform illumination system

    2011-09-01

    Optical models directly effect the irradiance distribution of observed surface. Traditionally, approximate Lambertian models are widely used in designing the light-emitting diodes (LED) arrays in spite of their errors compared with the experimental data. But now a novel LED optical model for uniform illumination system has been proposed, in which the curve-fitting technique is used to reduce the inherited errors and modify those previous models. The points from the curve of the LED light intensity are adopted, and a spline curve is designed for fitting, which obtains the revised mode. To verify its feasibility, we apply the new model in a 4 × 4 array design. The results show that compared with the approximate Lambertian, the light intensity distribution produced by the fitting model is more uniform and intense, as is expected.

    Light efficiency uniformity is a very important parameter of medical rigid endoscope. This paper introduces a new system based on image processing to test the light efficiency uniformity of medical rigid endoscope. Employing an electric machinery to reduce the human intervention, so that the precision of measuring and automation degree are improved. We collect the image with a digital CCD camera and display it on the screen of a computer, which can avoid visual fatigue from the direct observation through the rigid endoscope. To perform the image processing on a computer, we adopt a self-developed image processing software, by which the test results can be obtained from PC itself. The processes of our self-developed image processing software include: gray-scale transformation, image pretreatment and image binarization; calculate the center and equivalent radius of the field of view (FOV); plot the curve, through which the ratio of edge and center in different field and the center axisymmetric of light efficiency can be both calculated. It concludes that the relative self-effect of illumination light luminosity is the foremost factor affecting the uniformity, and these endoscopes are all qualified with the max deviation of the center axisymmetric less than 20%. The results of our study prove that this system can test the light efficiency uniformity of medical rigid endoscope quickly, expediently and accurately, and it contains more information instead of only reflecting a particular field of the FOV, what's more, it applies to different types, length and angles of view of medical rigid endoscope.

    2014-11-14

    A simplification of the Heller-Herman-Kluk-Kay (HK) propagator is presented that does not suffer from the need for an increasing number of trajectories with dimensions of the system under study. This is accomplished by replacing HK’s uniformizing integral over all of phase space by a one-dimensional curve that is appropriately selected to lie along the fastest growing manifold of a defining trajectory. It is shown that this modification leads to eigenspectra of quantum states in weakly anharmonic systems that can outperform the comparatively computationally cheap thawed Gaussian approximation method and frequently approach the accuracy of spectra obtained with the full HK propagator.

    Traditional techniques (e.g. REMPI, imaging, etc.) that are used to study reaction dynamics are able to provide a great deal of fundamental information about systems containing atoms and smaller molecules. However, as larger molecules and more complex systems are targeted, it becomes more of a challenge to determine isomer- and vibrational level-specific information and accurate branching ratios. In order to complement existing methods and obtain information about larger systems, a Ka-band (26-40 GHz) chirped-pulse Fourier transform microwave (CP-FTMW) spectrometer has been has been constructed. The system integrates a pulsed uniform supersonic flow (PUSF) source to ensure that experimental conditions, such as temperature and density, are well-known and constant. This PUSF system is based around a high-throughput piezoelectric stack valve, a Laval nozzle, and simple pumping scheme. This system is able to produce cold, uniform flows with densities on the order of 1016 cm-3 that persist for up to 20 cm from the nozzle exit. A description of this system and its characterization will be presented.

  9. Gravitational Influences on Flame Propagation through Non-Uniform, Premixed Gas Systems

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Miller, Fletcher J.; Easton, John; Ross, Howard D.; Marchese, Anthony; Perry, David; Kulis, Michael

    2001-01-01

    Flame propagation through non-uniformly premixed (or layered) gases has importance both in useful combustion systems and in unintentional fires. As summarized previously, non-uniform premixed gas combustion receives scant attention compared to the more usual limiting cases of diffusion or uniformly premixed flames, especially regarding the role gravity plays. This paper summarizes our progress on furthering the knowledge of layered combustion, in which a fuel concentration gradient exists normal to the direction of flame spread. We present experimental and numerical results for flame spread through propanol-air layers formed near the flash point temperature (25 C) or near the stoichiometric temperature (33 C). Both the model and experimental results show that the removal of gravity results in a faster spreading flame, by as much as 80% depending on conditions. This is exactly the opposite effect as that predicted by an earlier model reported. We also found that having a gallery lid results in faster flame spread, an effect more pronounced at normal gravity, demonstrating the importance of enclosure geometry. Also reported here is the beginning of our spectroscopic measurements of fuel vapor.

  10. A Review on Biomass Densification Systems to Develop Uniform Feedstock Commodities for Bioenergy Application

    2011-11-01

    Developing uniformly formatted, densified feedstock from lignocellulosic biomass is of interest to achieve consistent physical properties like size and shape, bulk and unit density, and durability, which significantly influence storage, transportation and handling characteristics, and, by extension, feedstock cost and quality. A variety of densification systems are considered for producing a uniform format feedstock commodity for bioenergy applications, including (a) baler, (b) pellet mill, (c) cuber, (d) screw extruder, (e) briquette press, (f) roller press, (g) tablet press, and (g) agglomerator. Each of these systems has varying impacts on feedstock chemical and physical properties, and energy consumption. This review discusses the suitability of these densification systems for biomass feedstocks and the impact these systems have on specific energy consumption and end product quality. For example, a briquette press is more flexible in terms of feedstock variables where higher moisture content and larger particles are acceptable for making good quality briquettes; or among different densification systems, a screw press consumes the most energy because it not only compresses but also shears and mixes the material. Pretreatment options like preheating, grinding, steam explosion, torrefaction, and ammonia fiber explosion (AFEX) can also help to reduce specific energy consumption during densification and improve binding characteristics. Binding behavior can also be improved by adding natural binders, such as proteins, or commercial binders, such as lignosulphonates. The quality of the densified biomass for both domestic and international markets is evaluated using PFI (United States Standard) or CEN (European Standard).

  11. Uniform global existence and parabolic limit for partially dissipative hyperbolic systems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Peng, Yue-Jun; Wasiolek, Victor

    2016-05-01

    This work concerns smooth solutions to the Cauchy problem for first-order partially dissipative hyperbolic systems with a small parameter. The systems are written in non-conservative form in several space variables. We introduce algebraic conditions on the structure of the systems. Under these conditions together with a partial dissipation condition and the Shizuta-Kawashima stability condition, we prove three main results around constant equilibrium states. These results are uniform global existence with respect to the parameter, global-in-time convergence of the systems to second-order nonlinear parabolic systems in a slow time variable, and global existence when the parameter is fixed. We also give examples of physical models to which the above results can be applied.

  12. DOE uniform reporting system for Federal assistance (grants and cooperative agreements): guidelines

    SciTech Connect

    Not Available

    1981-04-01

    These guidelines establish a uniform reporting system (URS) for grants and cooperative agreements. The purpose is to simplify reporting requirements, standardize reporting, and ensure that no assistance recipient submits more reports than needed to achieve accountability for public funds. This system replaces the many reporting procedures previously imposed by DOE component organizations. Uniform terminology and data elements will minimize ambiguity of meaning and intent. A glossary of terms is provided. A checklist is used to identify all reporting requirements at the time of award. The recipient is encouraged to discuss the requirements before the time of award in order to ensure that they are appropriate. The Guidelines describe planning forms which can be included in the Federal assistance application or proposal to present the planned approach and desired results. Flexibility has been built into the system to ensure that the information requested is relative to the activity performed. A recipient of Federal assistance submits information only once in each reporting period. The reporting system provides recipients with a formal method for identifying problems, including those originated by the Federal government. For purposes of illustration, a hypothetical project - partially funded by DOE under a cooperative agreement - using all the Program Management forms is presented in Part II, Program Management. Part III, Technical Information uses a research grant to illustrate Technical Reporting. Appendix B provides a complete example of the reporting requirements on a research grant.

  3. State Estimation for a Class of Non-Uniform Sampling Systems with Missing Measurements.

    PubMed

    Lin, Honglei; Sun, Shuli

    2016-01-01

    This paper is concerned with the state estimation problem for a class of non-uniform sampling systems with missing measurements where the state is updated uniformly and the measurements are sampled randomly. A new state model is developed to depict the dynamics at the measurement sampling points within a state update period. A non-augmented state estimator dependent on the missing rate is presented by applying an innovation analysis approach. It can provide the state estimates at the state update points and at the measurement sampling points within a state update period. Compared with the augmented method, the proposed algorithm can reduce the computational burden with the increase of the number of measurement samples within a state update period. It can deal with the optimal estimation problem for single and multi-sensor systems in a unified way. To improve the reliability, a distributed suboptimal fusion estimator at the state update points is also given for multi-sensor systems by using the covariance intersection fusion algorithm. The simulation research verifies the effectiveness of the proposed algorithms. PMID:27455282

    1994-07-01

    In April 1994, the first version of the Uniform System for the Evaluation of Substances (USES 1.0) was launched to comply with an action point of the Netherlands National Environmental Policy Plan. USES is a tool for the rapid, quantitative assessment of the hazards and risks of chemical substances, including new substances, existing substances, agricultural pesticides and biocides. It was developed to be applied as a decision-support system by the central government, by industry and institutes in the private sector and by international fora. Since hazard and risk assessment must be transparent to all users and easy to perform, USES 1.0 is well documented and available as a computer program. An overview of this system will be presented including its objectives, the national and international framework, the general principles involved, as well as the structure and the content of the models used.

  12. Sampling-interval-dependent stability for linear sampled-data systems with non-uniform sampling

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Shao, Hanyong; Lam, James; Feng, Zhiguang

    2016-09-01

    This paper is concerned with the sampling-interval-dependent stability of linear sampled-data systems with non-uniform sampling. A new Lyapunov-like functional is constructed to derive sampling-interval-dependent stability results. The Lyapunov-like functional has three features. First, it depends on time explicitly. Second, it may be discontinuous at the sampling instants. Third, it is not required to be positive definite between sampling instants. Moreover, the new Lyapunov-like functional can make use of the information fully of the sampled-data system, including that of both ends of the sampling interval. By making a new proposition for the Lyapunov-like functional, a sampling-interval-dependent stability criterion with reduced conservatism is derived. The new sampling-interval-dependent stability criterion is further extended to linear sampled-data systems with polytopic uncertainties. Finally, examples are given to illustrate the reduced conservatism of the stability criteria.

    It is a new technology to use synchrotron radiation lithography for making large scale integral circuit. Synchrotron radiation lithography System is composed of lithography beam line and exposure chamber. A scanning mirror system is making the largest linear exposure area for integrate circuit. By means of increasing control fineness and optimizing scanning frequency in on-line control system, the uniformity of exposure grating is improved quite well. It is opening good idea for every scientist and technician to continue study. It is shown that inspect and control system is still reliable, noise reduced and very convenient after several years operation. It shows operating status of each equipment and vacuum figures on beam line and station, mirror scanning linearity, exposure time, beam current, and so on. Some successful soft X-ray lithography sub-micrometer results are achieved by different users in this system, they are showing very good resolution, more clear leakage and enough depth for example. A convenient and smart optimum analysis system will be developed soon. It is easy to find very good oscillation frequency for mirror vibrating, and the strong interference from current monitor in synchrotron radiation storage ring is reduced very well. Convenient, compact, reliability and safety are the basic but important idea of system design, and what is higher level consideration for getting fine result of micro lithography. There will have enough database space for a different kind user to storage on- line test datum in system.

  5. Design of visible light communication system for maintaining uniform data rate

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Sung, Jiun-Yu; Lin, Wan-Feng; Wu, Yu-Fu; Chow, Chi-Wai; Yeh, Chien-Hung

    2014-09-01

    Light-emitting diode (LED) is gradually replacing the fluorescent lamp for lighting. Higher modulation bandwidth of LEDs makes the additional application of visible light communication (VLC) possible. Every location of a VLC system should be provided by equal data rate for smooth communication. However, locations away from the LED lamp have less power. These low-power locations have lower signal-to-noise ratio (SNR); and hence lower data rate can be achieved. For achieving high capacity VLC, strategies should be adequately provided to mitigate this problem. Moreover, for some real-time continuous applications, such as video and voice, latency reduction plan should also be considered. In this paper, an orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing access (OFDMA) based system was proposed to solve the above problem. Because we do not use time-division multiplexing access (TDMA) based system, the latency issue can be reduced. The OFDMA based system is also beneficial for large scale operation because the user bandwidth is not reduced by TDM mechanism. Signal-to-noise-plus-interference ratio (SNIR) distribution of the VLC system is designed to ensure uniform and optimal system capacity. Discrete multi-tone (DMT) is used for this VLC system. The DMT subcarriers are bit-loaded depending on the LED frequency response. More subcarriers are allocated for communication at low SNIR locations. Hence, nearly equal data rate can be provided everywhere. Demonstration of 17 Mb/s/LED data rate was provided.

The focus of the protocol is to provide a uniform way of measuring, quantifying, and reporting the performance of EESs in various applications; something that does not exist today and, as such, is hampering the consideration and use of this technology in the market. The availability of an application-specific protocol for use in measuring and expressing performance-related metrics of ESSs will allow technology developers, power-grid operators and other end-users to evaluate the performance of energy storage technologies on a uniform and comparable basis. This will help differentiate technologies and products for specific application(s) and provide transparency in how performance is measured. It also will assist utilities and other consumers of ESSs make more informed decisions as they consider the potential application and use of ESSs, as well as form the basis for documentation that might be required to justify utility investment in such technologies.

  13. SU-E-T-595: Output Factor Calculation for a Uniform Scanning Proton Therapy System

    SciTech Connect

    Hecksel, D; Stauffer, N; DeFillippo, G; Edwards, J; Pankuch, M

    2015-06-15

    Purpose: To develop an analytical model that predicts dose output factors for patient treatment fields in a uniform scanning proton therapy system. Methods: A model to predict output factors for patient specific treatment fields was produced based on the methods developed by Kooy et al. (2003). The Kooy model predicts the output factor based on the ratio of the entrance dose under calibration conditions to that for a given range and modulation corrected for the inverse square effect. Field specific output factors were plotted as a function of a single parameter r, where r = (Range-Modulation)/Modulation. The model targeted user range 1 sub-span 3 through user range 2 sup-span 2 of the IBA uniform scanning proton therapy system. The data set included points measured using the 10 cm and 18 cm snout sizes to eliminate stem effects on the monitor unit chambers. The data was fit using equation 15 from Kooy et al. (2003), and the resulting model was tested against measurements that were not included in the original data set. Results: For the range and sub span investigated, 120 data points were tested against the model prediction. The model predicted the output factor within 2% for 96% of the points tested and within 2.5% for 99% of the points tested. All points were within 3% of the predicted values. Conclusion: Monitor units for patient treatment fields with proton ranges that fall within the tested interval can be predicted using a model based on the methods developed at MGH. With further evaluation, it will be possible to model all user ranges and sub-spans of the IBA system. Further testing is also needed to predict output factors using a 25 cm snout which introduces variable scanning pattern sizes and stem effects on the monitor unit chambers.

  14. Dynamic and balanced capacity allocation scheme with uniform bandwidth for OFDM-PON systems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Lei, Cheng; Chen, Hongwei; Chen, Minghua; Yu, Ying; Guo, Qiang; Yang, Sigang; Xie, Shizhong

    2015-03-01

    As the bitrate of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing passive optical network (OFDM-PON) system is continuously increasing, how to effectively allocate the system bandwidth among the huge number of optical network units (ONUs) is one of the key problems before OFDM-PON can be practical deployed. Unlike traditional bandwidth allocation scheme, in this paper, the transmission performance of single ONU is for the first time taken into consideration and optimized. To reduce the manufacturing complexity and fully utilize the processing ability of the receivers, the system bandwidth is equally distributed to the ONUs. Bit loading is used to allocate the total transmission capacity, and power loading is used to guarantee the ONUs have balanced transmission performance even if they operate at different bitrate. In this way, a dynamic and balanced capacity allocation scheme with uniform bandwidth for OFDM-PON systems can be realized. At last, an experimental system is established to verify the feasibility of the proposed scheme, and the influence that the scheme brings to the whole system is also analyzed.

  1. Signal uniformity of mammography systems and its impact on test results from contrast detail phantoms

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Kaar, M.; Semturs, F.; Hummel, J.; Hoffmann, R.; Figl, M.

    2015-03-01

    Technical quality assurance (TQA) procedures for mammography systems usually include tests with a contrast-detail phantom. These phantoms contain multiple objects of varying dimensions arranged on a flat body. Exposures of the phantom are then evaluated by an observer, either human or software. One well-known issue of this method is that dose distribution is not uniform across the image area of any mammography system, mainly due to the heel effect. The purpose of this work is to investigate to what extent image quality differs across the detector plane. We analyze a total of 320 homogeneous mammography exposures from 32 radiology institutes. Systems of different models and manufacturers, both computed radiography (CR) and direct radiography (DR) are included. All images were taken from field installations operated within the nationwide Austrian mammography screening program, which includes mandatory continuous TQA. We calculate signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) for 15 regions of interest arranged to cover the area of the phantom. We define the 'signal range' of an image and compare this value categorized by technologies. We found the deviations of SNR greater in anterior-posterior than in lateral direction. SNR ranges are significantly higher for CR systems than for DR systems.

  14. Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS): Four-Year System Performance

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Acosta, Roberto J.; Bauer, Robert; Krawczyk, Richard J.; Reinhart, Richard C.; Zernic, Michael J.; Gargione, Frank

    1999-01-01

    The Advanced Communications Technology Satellite (ACTS) was conceived at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the late 1970's as a follow-on program to ATS and CTS to continue NASA's long history of satellite communications projects. The ACTS project set the stage for the C-band satellites that started the industry, and later the ACTS project established the use of Ku-band for video distribution and direct-to-home broadcasting. ACTS, launched in September 1993 from the space shuttle, created a revolution in satellite system architecture by using digital communications techniques employing key technologies such as a fast hopping multibeam antenna, an on-board baseband processor, a wide-band microwave switch matrix, adaptive rain fade compensation, and the use of 900 MHz transponders operating at Ka-band frequencies. This paper describes the lessons learned in each of the key ACTS technology areas, as well as in the propagation investigations.

  15. Uniform System for the Evaluation of Substances. IV. Distribution and intake.

    PubMed

    Visser, J D; van de Meent, C J

    1994-07-01

    This is the fourth article in the series on USES, the Uniform System for the Evaluation of Substances. This article describes the modelling approach used to predict concentrations in the environmental media (air, surface water, agricultural soil and groundwater) and the intake media for humans (fish, drinking water, root crops, leaf crops, meat and milk) and for predatory birds and mammals (fish and earthworms). Distribution and intake are estimated on two spatial scales: locally near a point source, and regionally over a larger area. This article focuses on the local distribution and the general intake models. Local distribution is modelled in a hypothetical standard environment, using typical environmental characteristics. Humans and predators are assumed to be exposed to food products from the contaminated system. The choice of models in a system like USES, is limited by the small data sets legally required for risk assessment purposes. Therefore, USES focuses on relatively simple models, and is able to work with the limited input data. PMID:7922148

  18. Characterization of a two-dimensional, thermoluminescent, dose-mapping system: Uniformity, reproducibility, and calibrations

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Fehl, D. L.; Muron, D. J.; Sujka, B. R.; Vehar, D. W.; Lorence, L. J., Jr.; Westfall, R. L.; Jones, S. C.; Sweet, J. A.; Braunlich, P.

    1994-10-01

    Initial testing of a new, commercially available, thermoluminescent dosimetry system is reported. The radiation detectors consist of two-dimensional arrays of 104 CaF2:Mn dosimeters, deposited on flexible polyimide sheets. The spatial resolution is 3 mm, and the combined thickness of the dosimeters and the substrate is 185 μm. Exposed sheets are processed by laser heating. This system is compatible with intense, pulsed Bremsstrahlung fields and electronics hardness testing. A two-step calibration procedure is described. In spatial uniformity tests at 66 Gy the detectors exhibited random fluctuations of 1%-3% superposed on broad spatial drifts of ˜±5%. Reproducibility for strips of 288 elements, cut from sheets and given absorbed doses of 100 Gy, was ˜2%. For absorbed doses in the 10 Gy-1.5 kGy range, response vs exposure curves show reasonable features of linearity, supralinearity, and saturation for CaF2:Mn phosphor. Small systematic effects (<7%) can be observed for sheets and strips stacked during exposure; these effects are explained by radiation transport calculations and impact the dosimetric technique.

  20. Uniform Regularity and Vanishing Dissipation Limit for the Full Compressible Navier-Stokes System in Three Dimensional Bounded Domain

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Wang, Yong

    2016-09-01

    In the present paper, we study the uniform regularity and vanishing dissipation limit for the full compressible Navier-Stokes system whose viscosity and heat conductivity are allowed to vanish at different orders. The problem is studied in a three dimensional bounded domain with Navier-slip type boundary conditions. It is shown that there exists a unique strong solution to the full compressible Navier-Stokes system with the boundary conditions in a finite time interval which is independent of the viscosity and heat conductivity. The solution is uniformly bounded in {W^{1,infty}} and is a conormal Sobolev space. Based on such uniform estimates, we prove the convergence of the solutions of the full compressible Navier-Stokes to the corresponding solutions of the full compressible Euler system in {L^infty(0,T; L^2)}, {L^infty(0,T; H1)} and {L^infty([0,T]×Ω)} with a rate of convergence.

  20. ACTS Aeronautical Terminal Experiment System Description and Link Analysis

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Sohn, Philip; Raquet, Charles; Reinhart, Richard; Nakamura, Dan

    1996-01-01

    During the summer of 1994, the performance of an experimental mobile satellite communication system was demonstrated to industry and government representatives by the NASA Lewis Research Center (LeRC) and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The system was based on the advanced communications technology satellite (ACTS) and consisted of a K-/Ka-band active monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) phased array antenna system, ACTS mobile terminal (AMT) and link evaluation terminal (LET). A LeRC research aircraft, Learjet model 25, was outfitted with the active MMIC phased array antenna system and AMT and served as the experimental 20/30 Ghz aeronautical terminal. The LET at LeRC in Cleveland, OH, was interfaced with portions of fixed-AMT equipment and together provided the gateway station functions including ACTS interface and public service telephone network (PSTN) interface. The ACTS was operated in its microwave switch matrix (MSM) mode with a spot beam for the Learjet and another spot beam dedicated to the LET. The Learjet was flown over several major cities across the US and demonstrated the feasibility of a full-duplex compressed voice links for an aeronautical terminal through the 20/30 Ghz ACTS channel. This paper presents a technical description of the system including the MMIC phased array antenna system, AMT, Learjet, LET, and ACTS. The array antenna system consists of a 30 Ghz transmit array (LeRc/Texas Instruments) and two 20 Ghz receive arrays (USAF Rome Lab., Boeing, and Martin Marietta), each one very small with sufficient performance for a satellite voice link. The AMT consists of 2.4/4.8/9.6 Kbps voice coder/decoder, modem, PSTN interface and RF/IF converters. Link analysis is presented and compared to the actual performance data collected during the demonstration flights.

  2. The Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system with a uniform ionic background near Maxwellians

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Lei, Yuanjie; Zhao, Huijiang

    2016-02-01

    The two-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system is an important model for plasma physics describing the time evolution of dilute charged particles consisting of electrons and ions under the influence of the self-consistent internally generated Lorentz forces. In physical situations the ion mass is usually much larger than the electron mass so that the electrons move much faster than the ions. Thus, the ions are often described by a fixed ion background and only the electrons move. For such a simple case, the two-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system is reduced to the one-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system. Although the one-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system is a simplified model of the two-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system, its global well-posedness theory near a given global Maxwellian in the perturbative framework is more difficult than the two-species case, which is partially due to the slow-decay of the electromagnetic field and up to now, the problem on the construction of global in time solutions near a given global Maxwellian in the perturbative framework for the Cauchy problem of the one-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system with cutoff non-hard sphere intermolecular collisions remains unsolved. It is shown in this paper that the Cauchy problem of the one-species Vlasov-Maxwell-Boltzmann system with cutoff non-hard sphere intermolecular collisions including the cutoff inverse power law potentials is globally well-posed provided that the perturbative initial data satisfies certain regularity, smallness, and integrability conditions. Our analysis is based on a new time-velocity weighted energy method with two key technical parts: one is to introduce the exponentially weighted estimates into the cutoff Boltzmann operator and the other is to design a delicate temporal energy X (t)-norm to obtain its uniform bound. As a by-product of our analysis, we can also deduce certain temporal decay estimates on the global solutions constructed above

  9. JPL Activated Carbon Treatment System (ACTS) for sewage

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    1976-01-01

    An Activated Carbon Treatment System (ACTS) was developed for sewage treatment and is being applied to a one-million gallon per day sewage treatment pilot plant in Orange County California. Activities reported include pyrolysis and activation of carbon-sewage sludge, and activated carbon treatment of sewage to meet ocean discharge standards. The ACTS Sewage treatment operations include carbon-sewage treatment, primary and secondary clarifiers, gravity (multi-media) filter, filter press dewatering, flash drying of carbon-sewage filter cake, and sludge pyrolysis and activation. Tests were conducted on a laboratory scale, 10,000 gallon per day demonstration plant and pilot test equipment. Preliminary economic studies are favorable to the ACTS process relative to activated sludge treatment for a 175,000,000 gallon per day sewage treatment plant.

  11. Design and testing of a uniformly solar energy TIR-R concentration lenses for HCPV systems.

    PubMed

    Shen, S C; Chang, S J; Yeh, C Y; Teng, P C

    2013-11-01

    In this paper, total internal reflection-refraction (TIR-R) concentration (U-TIR-R-C) lens module were designed for uniformity using the energy configuration method to eliminate hot spots on the surface of solar cell and increase conversion efficiency. The design of most current solar concentrators emphasizes the high-power concentration of solar energy, however neglects the conversion inefficiency resulting from hot spots generated by uneven distributions of solar energy concentrated on solar cells. The energy configuration method proposed in this study employs the concept of ray tracing to uniformly distribute solar energy to solar cells through a U-TIR-R-C lens module. The U-TIR-R-C lens module adopted in this study possessed a 76-mm diameter, a 41-mm thickness, concentration ratio of 1134 Suns, 82.6% optical efficiency, and 94.7% uniformity. The experiments demonstrated that the U-TIR-R-C lens module reduced the core temperature of the solar cell from 108 °C to 69 °C and the overall temperature difference from 45 °C to 10 °C, and effectively relative increased the conversion efficiency by approximately 3.8%. Therefore, the U-TIR-R-C lens module designed can effectively concentrate a large area of sunlight onto a small solar cell, and the concentrated solar energy can be evenly distributed in the solar cell to achieve uniform irradiance and effectively eliminate hot spots.

  12. RF Head Coil Design with Improved RF Magnetic Near-Fields Uniformity for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Systems

    Higher magnetic field strength in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems offers higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), contrast, and spatial resolution in MR images. However, the wavelength in ultra-high fields (7 tesla and beyond) becomes shorter than the human body at the Larmor frequency with increasing static magnetic field (B0) of MRI system. At short wavelengths, interference effect appears resulting in non- uniformity of the RF magnetic near-field (B1) over the subject and MR images may have spatially anomalous contrast. The B1 near-field generated by the transverse electromagnetic (TEM) RF coil’s microstrip line element has a maximum near the center of its length and falls off towards both ends. In this study, a double trapezoidal shaped microstrip transmission line element is proposed to obtain uniform B1 field distribution by gradual impedance variation. Two multi-channel RF head coils with uniform and trapezoidal shape elements were built and tested with a phantom at 7T MRI scanner for comparison. The simulation and experimental results show stronger and more uniform B1+ near-field with the trapezoidal shape. PMID:25892746

  15. Quantitative recurrence statistics and convergence to an extreme value distribution for non-uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Holland, M. P.; Rabassa, P.; Sterk, A. E.

    2016-08-01

    For non-uniformly hyperbolic dynamical systems we consider the time series of maxima along typical orbits. Using ideas based upon quantitative recurrence time statistics we prove convergence of the maxima (under suitable normalization) to an extreme value distribution, and obtain estimates on the rate of convergence. We show that our results are applicable to a range of examples, and include new results for Lorenz maps, certain partially hyperbolic systems, and non-uniformly expanding systems with sub-exponential decay of correlations. For applications where analytic results are not readily available we show how to estimate the rate of convergence to an extreme value distribution based upon numerical information of the quantitative recurrence statistics. We envisage that such information will lead to more efficient statistical parameter estimation schemes based upon the block-maxima method.

  16. Cesaro-One Summability and Uniform Convergence of Solutions of a Sturm-Liouville System

    Baty, R.S.; Tucker, D.H.

    1999-01-26

    Galerkin methods are used in separable Hilbert spaces to construct and compute L{sup 2} [0,{pi}] solutions to large classes of differential equations. In this note a Galerkin method is used to construct series solutions of a nonhomogeneous Sturm-Liouville problem defined on [0,{pi}]. The series constructed are shown to converge to a specified du Bois-Reymond function f in L{sup 2} [0,{pi}]. It is then shown that the series solutions can be made to converge uniformly to the specified du Bois-Reymond function when averaged by the Ces{'a}ro-one summability method. Therefore, in the Ces{'a}ro-one sense, every continuous function f on [0,{pi}] is the uniform limit of solutions of nonhomogeneous Sturm-Liouville problems.

  18. An optimal design of X-ray target for uniform X-ray emission from an electronic brachytherapy system

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    2011-05-01

    We present a novel design of an X-ray target to deliver uniform dose from an electronic brachytherapy system (EBS). This design comprises of a combination of both the reflection- and transmission-type target geometries. Monte-Carlo simulation code MCNP5 has been employed for the calculation of angular distribution of the X-ray intensity produced from various morphologies of X-ray targets. The simulation results reveal that the combinatorial target-assembly is promising and effective in achieving uniformity of X-ray emission over the entire space of solid angle of 4 π in comparison to a transmission-type target that produces X-rays mainly in the forward direction and a reflection-type target that generates X-rays mostly in the backward direction. As a direct consequence of the uniformity of X-ray emission, the combinatorial target-assembly can impart a uniform dose distribution which makes it suitable as a target of an X-ray tube for EBS.

  7. The initial mass function of stars: evidence for uniformity in variable systems.

    PubMed

    Kroupa, Pavel

    2002-01-01

    The distribution of stellar masses that form in one star formation event in a given volume of space is called the initial mass function (IMF). The IMF has been estimated from low-mass brown dwarfs to very massive stars. Combining IMF estimates for different populations in which the stars can be observed individually unveils an extraordinary uniformity of the IMF. This general insight appears to hold for populations including present-day star formation in small molecular clouds, rich and dense massive star-clusters forming in giant clouds, through to ancient and metal-poor exotic stellar populations that may be dominated by dark matter. This apparent universality of the IMF is a challenge for star formation theory, because elementary considerations suggest that the IMF ought to systematically vary with star-forming conditions.

    After 9/11, the United States (U.S.) was suddenly pushed into challenging situations they could no longer ignore as simple spectators. The War on Terrorism (WoT) was suddenly ignited and no one knows when this war will end. While the government is exploring many existing and potential technologies, the area of wireless Sensor networks (WSN) has emerged as a foundation for establish future national security. Unlike other technologies, WSN could provide virtual presence capabilities needed for precision awareness and response in military, intelligence, and homeland security applications. The Advance Concept Group (ACG) vision of Sense/Decide/Act/Communicate (SDAC) sensor system is an instantiation of the WSN concept that takes a 'systems of systems' view. Each sensing nodes will exhibit the ability to: Sense the environment around them, Decide as a collective what the situation of their environment is, Act in an intelligent and coordinated manner in response to this situational determination, and Communicate their actions amongst each other and to a human command. This LDRD report provides a review of the research and development done to bring the SDAC vision closer to reality.

  13. High flow rate nozzle system with production of uniform size droplets

    1990-10-16

    Method steps for production of substantially uniform size droplets from a flow of liquid include forming the flow of liquid, periodically modulating the momentum of the flow of liquid in the flow direction at controlled frequency, generating a cross flow direction component of momentum and modulation of the cross flow momentum of liquid at substantially the same frequency and phase as the modulation of flow direction momentum, and spraying the so formed modulated flow through a first nozzle outlet to form a desired spray configuration. A second modulated flow through a second nozzle outlet is formed according to the same steps, and the first and second modulated flows impinge upon each other generating a liquid sheet. Nozzle apparatus for modulating each flow includes rotating valving plates interposed in the annular flow of liquid. The plates are formed with radial slots. Rotation of the rotating plates is separably controlled at differential angular velocities for a selected modulating frequency to achieve the target droplet size and production rate for a given flow. The counter rotating plates are spaced to achieve a desired amplitude of modulation in the flow direction, and the angular velocity of the downstream rotating plate is controlled to achieve the desired amplitude of modulation of momentum in the cross flow direction. Amplitude of modulation is set according to liquid viscosity. 5 figs.

  15. Uniform discretizations: A new approach for the quantization of totally constrained systems

    SciTech Connect

    Campiglia, Miguel; Gambini, Rodolfo; Di Bartolo, Cayetano; Pullin, Jorge

    2006-12-15

    We discuss in detail the uniform discretization approach to the quantization of totally constrained theories. This approach allows to construct the continuum theory of interest as a well defined, controlled, limit of well behaved discrete theories. We work out several finite dimensional examples that exhibit behaviors expected to be of importance in the quantization of gravity. We also work out the case of BF theory. At the time of quantization, one can take two points of view. The technique can be used to define, upon taking the continuum limit, the space of physical states of the continuum constrained theory of interest. In particular we show in models that it agrees with the group averaging procedure when the latter exists. The technique can also be used to compute, at the discrete level, conditional probabilities and the introduction of a relational time. Upon taking the continuum limit one can show that one reproduces results obtained by the use of evolving constants, and therefore recover all physical predictions of the continuum theory. This second point of view can also be used as a paradigm to deal with cases where the continuum limit does not exist. There one would have discrete theories that at least at certain scales reproduce the semiclassical properties of the theory of interest. In this way the approach can be viewed as a generalization of the Dirac quantization procedure that can handle situations where the latter fails.

  18. Chromosomal Toxin-Antitoxin Systems May Act as Antiaddiction Modules▿

    PubMed Central

    Saavedra De Bast, Manuel; Mine, Natacha; Van Melderen, Laurence

    2008-01-01

    Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are widespread among bacterial chromosomes and mobile genetic elements. Although in plasmids TA systems have a clear role in their vertical inheritance by selectively killing plasmid-free daughter cells (postsegregational killing or addiction phenomenon), the physiological role of chromosomally encoded ones remains under debate. The assumption that chromosomally encoded TA systems are part of stress response networks and/or programmed cell death machinery has been called into question recently by the observation that none of the five canonical chromosomally encoded TA systems in the Escherichia coli chromosome seem to confer any selective advantage under stressful conditions (V. Tsilibaris, G. Maenhaut-Michel, N. Mine, and L. Van Melderen, J. Bacteriol. 189:6101-6108, 2007). Their prevalence in bacterial chromosomes indicates that they might have been acquired through horizontal gene transfer. Once integrated in chromosomes, they might in turn interfere with their homologues encoded by mobile genetic elements. In this work, we show that the chromosomally encoded Erwinia chrysanthemi ccd (control of cell death) (ccdEch) system indeed protects the cell against postsegregational killing mediated by its F-plasmid ccd (ccdF) homologue. Moreover, competition experiments have shown that this system confers a fitness advantage under postsegregational conditions mediated by the ccdF system. We propose that ccdEch acts as an antiaddiction module and, more generally, that the integration of TA systems in bacterial chromosomes could drive the evolution of plasmid-encoded ones and select toxins that are no longer recognized by the antiaddiction module.

  6. System physics: A uniform approach to the branches of classical physics

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Burkhardt, H.

    1987-04-01

    A systematic frame for the theory of classical physics is presented. The purpose of the modification in structure of the science is to economize the teaching, learning, and application of physics, and the communication with other disciplines. Isomorphic procedures applicable to the branches of physics and to other sciences are recommended. A system is defined as an imagined container; its contents of extensive (substancelike) quantities are used to describe the state of the system; balance equations account for the dynamic change in a system's state through processes. The procedure, essentially a space integral formulation of macroscopic transport equations, is applied to physics by using the extensive quantity of entropy and the conserved extensive quantities of mass, energy, momentum, angular momentum, and electric charge. Examples are given from the areas of mechanics, electricity, and heat.

  8. Nonlocal continuum analysis of a nonlinear uniaxial elastic lattice system under non-uniform axial load

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Hérisson, Benjamin; Challamel, Noël; Picandet, Vincent; Perrot, Arnaud

    2016-09-01

    The static behavior of the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam (FPU) axial chain under distributed loading is examined. The FPU system examined in the paper is a nonlinear elastic lattice with linear and quadratic spring interaction. A dimensionless parameter controls the possible loss of convexity of the associated quadratic and cubic energy. Exact analytical solutions based on Hurwitz zeta functions are developed in presence of linear static loading. It is shown that this nonlinear lattice possesses scale effects and possible localization properties in the absence of energy convexity. A continuous approach is then developed to capture the main phenomena observed regarding the discrete axial problem. The associated continuum is built from a continualization procedure that is mainly based on the asymptotic expansion of the difference operators involved in the lattice problem. This associated continuum is an enriched gradient-based or nonlocal axial medium. A Taylor-based and a rational differential method are both considered in the continualization procedures to approximate the FPU lattice response. The Padé approximant used in the continualization procedure fits the response of the discrete system efficiently, even in the vicinity of the limit load when the non-convex FPU energy is examined. It is concluded that the FPU lattice system behaves as a nonlocal axial system in dynamic but also static loading.

  20. Uniform stable observer for the disturbance estimation in two renewable energy systems.

    PubMed

    Rubio, José de Jesús; Ochoa, Genaro; Balcazar, Ricardo; Pacheco, Jaime

    2015-09-01

    In this study, an observer for the states and disturbance estimation in two renewable energy systems is introduced. The restrictions of the gains in the proposed observer are found to guarantee its stability and the convergence of its error; furthermore, these results are utilized to obtain a good estimation. The introduced technique is applied for the states and disturbance estimation in a wind turbine and an electric vehicle. The wind turbine has a rotatory tower to catch the incoming air to be transformed in electricity and the electric vehicle has generators connected with its wheels to catch the vehicle movement to be transformed in electricity.

  1. Uniform apparent contrast noise: A picture of the noise of the visual contrast detection system

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Ahumada, A. J., Jr.; Watson, A. B.

    1984-01-01

    A picture which is a sample of random contrast noise is generated. The noise amplitude spectrum in each region of the picture is inversely proportional to spatial frequency contrast sensitivity for that region, assuming the observer fixates the center of the picture and is the appropriate distance from it. In this case, the picture appears to have approximately the same contrast everywhere. To the extent that contrast detection thresholds are determined by visual system noise, this picture can be regarded as a picture of the noise of that system. There is evidence that, at different eccentricities, contrast sensitivity functions differ only by a magnification factor. The picture was generated by filtering a sample of white noise with a filter whose frequency response is inversely proportional to foveal contrast sensitivity. It was then stretched by a space-varying magnification function. The picture summmarizes a noise linear model of detection and discrimination of contrast signals by referring the model noise to the input picture domain.

    2008-11-03

    To study beam scanning and beam profiling effects low energy implants of Boron (25 keV) and high energy implants of Helium (5.4 MeV) were carried out by use of different scanning systems including mechanical, electrostatic and hybrid scanning. The sensitivity of photothermal measurement by use of the excess carrier wave in the depth up to 50 {mu}m is proved for buried damage detection and compared with the effect in shallow damage profiles. The micro-mapping capability of the photothermal techniques allows the detection of dose variations in a sub-mm-scale without Moire effects from mapping steps. Conclusion for advanced dose monitoring by multi-frequency photothermal methods will be derived.

    2003-10-07

    A capillary electrophoresis system comprises capillaries positioned in parallel to each other forming a plane. The capillaries are configured to allow samples to migrate. A light source is configured to illuminate the capillaries and the samples therein. This causes the samples to emit light. A lens is configured to receive the light emitted by the samples and positioned directly over a first group of the capillaries and obliquely over a second group of the capillaries. The light source is further configured to illuminate the second group of capillaries more than the first group of the capillaries such that amount of light received by the lens from the first group of capillaries is substantially identical to amount of light received from the second group of capillaries when an identical amount of the samples is migrating through the first and second group capillaries.

  9. The backscattering factor for systems with a non-uniform surface region: Definition and calculations

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Jablonski, A.

    2009-07-01

    It has been recently shown that the backscattering factor (BF) in Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) noticeably depends on the in-depth structure of the surface region. This is a particularly important problem in sputter depth profiling monitored by AES since the signal intensity cannot be described with a single BF value. The BF depends on the removed amount of material and thus varies with sputtering time. In the present work, the definition of the BF is generalized to extend its applicability to systems with an in-depth composition profile. The generalized definition of the BF was applied to the special case of a depth profile, i.e. a buried thin layer. It has been shown that the BF for this case is expressed by the excitation depth distribution function (EXDDF) which is equivalent to the "Phi-Rho- Z" function used in electron probe microanalysis (EPMA). Different algorithms for calculating the BF are discussed. Calculations of the BF for buried layer were performed for the Ag M 4N 45N 45 Auger transition in a thin layer of silver located at different depths in three matrix materials: Si, Cu, and Au. It was found that, indeed, the BF noticeably varies with the depth of the layer in the analyzed volume, although the extent of this variation depends on the matrix material. For Si, the variation is observed for the lowest primary beam energies considered, i.e., 1 and 2 keV. For Cu, a distinct depth dependence of the BF is visible at 10 keV and lower energies, while for Au, the BF varies with depth even at the highest considered energy, i.e. 30 keV.

  10. Uniform mixing in paper-based microfluidic systems using surface acoustic waves.

    Paper-based microfluidics has recently received considerable interest due to their ease and low cost, making them extremely attractive as point-of-care diagnostic devices. The incorporation of basic fluid actuation and manipulation schemes on paper substrates, however, afford the possibility to extend the functionality of this simple technology to a much wider range of typical lab-on-a-chip operations, given its considerable advantages in terms of cost, size and integrability over conventional microfluidic substrates. We present a convective actuation mechanism in a simple paper-based microfluidic device using surface acoustic waves to drive mixing. Employing a Y-channel structure patterned onto paper, the mixing induced by the 30 MHz acoustic waves is shown to be consistent and rapid, overcoming several limitations associated with its capillary-driven passive mixing counterpart wherein irreproducibilities and nonuniformities are often encountered in the mixing along the channel--capillary-driven passive mixing offers only poor control, is strongly dependent on the paper's texture and fibre alignment, and permits backflow, all due to the scale of the fibres being significant in comparison to the length scales of the features in a microfluidic system. Using a novel hue-based colourimetric technique, the mixing speed and efficiency is compared between the two methods, and used to assess the effects of changing the input power, channel tortuousity and fibre/flow alignment for the acoustically-driven mixing. The hue-based technique offers several advantages over grayscale pixel intensity analysis techniques in facilitating quantification without limitations on the colour contrast of the samples, and can be used, for example, for quantification in on-chip immunochromatographic assays.

  1. Development of a non-uniform discrete Fourier transform based high speed spectral domain optical coherence tomography system.

    PubMed

    Wang, Kai; Ding, Zhihua; Wu, Tong; Wang, Chuan; Meng, Jie; Chen, Minghui; Xu, Lei

    2009-07-01

    We develop a high speed spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) system based on a custom-built spectrometer and non-uniform discrete Fourier transform (NDFT) to realize minimized depth dependent sensitivity fall-off. After precise spectral calibration of the spectrometer, NDFT of the acquired spectral data is adopted for image reconstruction. The spectrometer is able to measure a wavelength range of about 138 nm with a spectral resolution of 0.0674 nm at central wavelength of 835 nm, corresponding to an axial imaging range of 2.56 mm in air. Zemax simulations and sensitivity fall-off measurements under two alignment states of the spectrometer are given. Both theoretical simulations and experiments are done to study the depth dependent sensitivity of the developed system based on NDFT in contrast to those based on conventional discrete Fourier transform (DFT) with and without interpolation. In vivo imaging on human finger from volunteer is conducted at A-scan rate of 29 kHz and reconstruction is done based on different methods. The comparing results confirm that reconstruction method based on NDFT indeed improves sensitivity especially at large depth while maintaining the coherence-function-limited depth resolution.

  2. Reaching a Uniform Accuracy for Complex Molecular Systems: Long-Range-Corrected XYG3 Doubly Hybrid Density Functional.

    PubMed

    Zhang, Igor Ying; Xu, Xin

    2013-05-16

    An unbiased understanding of complex molecular systems from first-principles critically demands theoretical methods with uniform accuracy for diverse interactions with different natures covering short-, medium-, and long-range correlations. Among the state-of-the-art density functional approximations (DFAs), doubly hybrid (DH) DFAs (e.g., XYG3 in this Letter) provide a remarkable improvement over the conventional DFAs (e.g., B3LYP in this Letter). Even though XYG3 works quite well in many cases of noncovalent bonding interactions (NCIs), it is incomplete in describing the pure long-range dispersive interactions. Here, we address such concerns by adding a scaled long-range contribution from the second-order perturbation theory (PT2). The long-range-corrected XYG3 (lrc-XYG3) is proposed without reparameterizing the three parameters in the original XYG3. Due to its overall excellent performance for all testing sets constructed for various purposes, lrc-XYG3 is the recommended method, which is expected to provide a balanced description of diverse interactions in complex molecular systems.

    Background Reduction or elimination of vector populations will tend to reduce or eliminate transmission of vector-borne diseases. One potential method for environmentally-friendly, species-specific population control is the Sterile Insect Technique (SIT). SIT has not been widely used against insect disease vectors such as mosquitoes, in part because of various practical difficulties in rearing, sterilization and distribution. Additionally, vector populations with strong density-dependent effects will tend to be resistant to SIT-based control as the population-reducing effect of induced sterility will tend to be offset by reduced density-dependent mortality. Results We investigated by mathematical modeling the effect of manipulating the stage of development at which death occurs (lethal phase) in an SIT program against a density-dependence-limited insect population. We found late-acting lethality to be considerably more effective than early-acting lethality. No such strains of a vector insect have been described, so as a proof-of-principle we constructed a strain of the principal vector of the dengue and yellow fever viruses, Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti, with the necessary properties of dominant, repressible, highly penetrant, late-acting lethality. Conclusion Conventional SIT induces early-acting (embryonic) lethality, but genetic methods potentially allow the lethal phase to be tailored to the program. For insects with strong density-dependence, we show that lethality after the density-dependent phase would be a considerable improvement over conventional methods. For density-dependent parameters estimated from field data for Aedes aegypti, the critical release ratio for population elimination is modeled to be 27% to 540% greater for early-acting rather than late-acting lethality. Our success in developing a mosquito strain with the key features that the modeling indicated were desirable demonstrates the feasibility of this approach for improved SIT for disease

  14. Control of cavitation density through gas and acoustic uniformity in a proximity megasonic pre-bond cleaning system

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Dussault, D.; Liebscher, E.; Fournell, F.; Dragoi, V.

    2013-05-01

    A pre-bond cleaning process was developed utilizing a unique, radially uniform, large area proximity type Megasonic transducer. In prior work this new cleaning method was investigated for PRE (particle removal efficiency) as well as particle neutrality. These tests yielded higher values than those achieved with the processes of record. Subsequently, this process was integrated into an industrial volume low temperature fusion bonding process and enabled higher bonding yields. In the above process flow the process fluid was dispensed to fill the gap between the Megasonic transducer surface and the substrate using an atmospheric free flow stream applied to the substrate. Current work describes development, testing and operational verification of a process fluid management device used in conjunction with the wide area proximity Megasonic transducer. The goals of this development were reduction of process fluid amount required, increase the operating substrate rotation speed, and provide better control of process fluid parameters. The design criteria and process flow as well as test results demonstrating the benefits of the new system are presented.

  15. Method and system for producing sputtered thin films with sub-angstrom thickness uniformity or custom thickness gradients

    DOEpatents

    Folta, James A.; Montcalm, Claude; Walton, Christopher

    2003-01-01

    A method and system for producing a thin film with highly uniform (or highly accurate custom graded) thickness on a flat or graded substrate (such as concave or convex optics), by sweeping the substrate across a vapor deposition source with controlled (and generally, time-varying) velocity. In preferred embodiments, the method includes the steps of measuring the source flux distribution (using a test piece that is held stationary while exposed to the source), calculating a set of predicted film thickness profiles, each film thickness profile assuming the measured flux distribution and a different one of a set of sweep velocity modulation recipes, and determining from the predicted film thickness profiles a sweep velocity modulation recipe which is adequate to achieve a predetermined thickness profile. Aspects of the invention include a practical method of accurately measuring source flux distribution, and a computer-implemented method employing a graphical user interface to facilitate convenient selection of an optimal or nearly optimal sweep velocity modulation recipe to achieve a desired thickness profile on a substrate. Preferably, the computer implements an algorithm in which many sweep velocity function parameters (for example, the speed at which each substrate spins about its center as it sweeps across the source) can be varied or set to zero.

  18. Effect of medium permeability anisotropy on the morphological evolution of two non-uniformities in a geochemical dissolution system

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Lai, Keng-Hsin; Chen, Jui-Sheng; Liu, Chen-Wuing; Hsu, Shao-Yiu; Steefel, Carl

    2016-02-01

    The morphological evolutions of chemical dissolution fronts have attracted increasing interest in the field of the geological sciences and in industrial applications. Extensive research based on numerical simulations has been conducted to understand how various mechanisms and processes influence the morphological evolution of chemical dissolution fronts within geological media. Most researchers in previous studies have assumed the medium permeability to be isotropic for developing numerical models, despite isotropic geological media being uncommon in the real world. This study investigates the effect of medium permeability anisotropy on the morphological evolutions of two non-uniformities with higher permeability in a geochemical dissolution system. A series of numerical simulations are performed to evaluate the effect of medium permeability anisotropy on the morphological evolution of a chemical dissolution front. The simulation results indicate that the patterns of the dissolution reaction front are substantially affected by medium permeability anisotropy. An increase in the permeability anisotropy ratio, which is defined as the ratio of the permeability in the transverse direction to that in the longitudinal direction, enhances the dominance of the flow-focusing effect over the stabilizing or merging effect induced by diffusion/dispersion mechanism. Therefore, an increase in the permeability anisotropy ratio can increase the fingering length of the dissolution front or cause the dissolution front to have a more unstable pattern. By contrast, a reduction in the permeability anisotropy ratio will weaken the flow-focusing effect, thereby reducing the fingering length of the dissolution front or changing the front morphology such that it has a more stable status. The effect of the permeability anisotropy ratio on the morphological evolution tends to decrease when the Zhao number (negative dimensionless upstream pressure gradient) of the system increases. The

  5. A global, comprehensive review of literature related to paper recycling: A pressing need for a uniform system of terms and definitions.

    PubMed

    Ervasti, Ilpo; Miranda, Ruben; Kauranen, Ilkka

    2016-02-01

    A global, comprehensive review of terms and definitions related to paper recycling was conducted in this article. Terms and definitions related to paper recycling have varied in the course of time. Different terms and different definitions for the same thing are being used in different geographical regions and by different organizations. Definitions are different based on varying conceptions of waste paper as a raw material. Definitions of how to make various calculations related to paper recycling activity are inconsistent. Even such fundamental basic definitions like how to calculate recycling rate and paper consumption are not uniform. It could be concluded that there is no uniform system of terms and definitions related to paper recycling and the implications of this deficiency are profound. For example, it is difficult to reliably compare with each other statistics from different times and from different geographical regions. It is not possible to measure if targets for recycling activities are met if the terms describing the targets are not uniformly defined. In cases of reporting data for recycling targets, the lack of uniform terminology can, for example, impede the necessary transparency between different stakeholders and may allow for deception. The authors conclude there is a pressing need to develop a uniform system of terms and definition for terms related to paper recycling. PMID:26619933

  16. Simple estimation of induced electric fields in nervous system tissues for human exposure to non-uniform electric fields at power frequency

    Most results regarding induced current in the human body related to electric field dosimetry have been calculated under uniform field conditions. We have found in previous work that a contact current is a more suitable way to evaluate induced electric fields, even in the case of exposure to non-uniform fields. If the relationship between induced currents and external non-uniform fields can be understood, induced electric fields in nervous system tissues may be able to be estimated from measurements of ambient non-uniform fields. In the present paper, we numerically calculated the induced electric fields and currents in a human model by considering non-uniform fields based on distortion by a cubic conductor under an unperturbed electric field of 1 kV m‑1 at 60 Hz. We investigated the relationship between a non-uniform external electric field with no human present and the induced current through the neck, and the relationship between the current through the neck and the induced electric fields in nervous system tissues such as the brain, heart, and spinal cord. The results showed that the current through the neck can be formulated by means of an external electric field at the central position of the human head, and the distance between the conductor and the human model. As expected, there is a strong correlation between the current through the neck and the induced electric fields in the nervous system tissues. The combination of these relationships indicates that induced electric fields in these tissues can be estimated solely by measurements of the external field at a point and the distance from the conductor.

  13. The feasibility assessment of a U.S. natural gas production reporting system uniform production reporting model. Final report, July 1993--June 1994

    SciTech Connect

    1994-06-01

    The Uniform Production Reporting Model (UPRM) project was charged with identifying the best practices and procedures of the natural gas producing states related to the gathering, management, and dissemination of production data. It is recommended that the producing states begin the process of upgrading state systems using the concepts embodied in the UPRM model.

  14. Logical optimization for database uniformization

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Grant, J.

    1984-01-01

    Data base uniformization refers to the building of a common user interface facility to support uniform access to any or all of a collection of distributed heterogeneous data bases. Such a system should enable a user, situated anywhere along a set of distributed data bases, to access all of the information in the data bases without having to learn the various data manipulation languages. Furthermore, such a system should leave intact the component data bases, and in particular, their already existing software. A survey of various aspects of the data bases uniformization problem and a proposed solution are presented.

  15. Uniform acceleration in general relativity

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Friedman, Yaakov; Scarr, Tzvi

    2015-10-01

    We extend de la Fuente and Romero's (Gen Relativ Gravit 47:33, 2015) defining equation for uniform acceleration in a general curved spacetime from linear acceleration to the full Lorentz covariant uniform acceleration. In a flat spacetime background, we have explicit solutions. We use generalized Fermi-Walker transport to parallel transport the Frenet basis along the trajectory. In flat spacetime, we obtain velocity and acceleration transformations from a uniformly accelerated system to an inertial system. We obtain the time dilation between accelerated clocks. We apply our acceleration transformations to the motion of a charged particle in a constant electromagnetic field and recover the Lorentz-Abraham-Dirac equation.
