Hoseo University is a private Christian university in Asan, South Korea, known for its large size, 3.471074 km2. It was the first school to establish a graduate school for venture business in South Korea.The university's "World Class 2030" project promotes research in the area of unexplored fields such as the interface of five senses, the expression of the sense of smell, or defense mechanism of invertebrate animals within 20 years.The university was originally a private technical college when it was founded in 1978 in Anseo-dong, Cheonan-si, Chungcheongnam-do, called Cheonwon Technology University. The founder is Seokgyu Kang, and the motto of the school is "We can do it, and it will come true." In 1980, Cheonwon Technology University changed its name to Hoseo University and, in eight years, it was re-formed as a four year collegiate university. The second Hoseo University campus was founded in 1989 in 165, Sechul-ri, Baebang-myun Asan-si, Chungcheongnam-do. The administration facilities of the university were moved to the second Campus in Asan, making the Asan campus the main campus of Hoseo University, and Cheonan campus automatically became the first campus in 1991. The university has a central library, museum, broadcasting company, newspaper, continuing education and health clinic center, etc. It also has several research centers: industrial-educational cooperation research center, small and medium sized businesses research center, industrial technology research center, display technical education research center and environmental bio research center.

In the paper, an output-based disturbance observer of reduced order is presented for a class of discrete-time linear systems. First, a general form of a disturbance observer is proposed when full states are available. Then, by combining a state function estimator of minimal order, an output-based disturbance observer is derived. The existence condition will be formulated in the form of a static output feedback. Through examples, the effectiveness and advantages of the proposed approach will be demonstrated. A servo control problem in practice is addressed to show the validity of the approach. Furthermore, it will be shown that the proposed approach does provide a smaller order of disturbance observer than that of conventional approaches, while maintaining satisfactory performances. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

This paper presents several of the problems encountered with vector-controlled single-phase induction motor (SPIM), and discusses about the complex implementation of a vector controlled SPIM drive. The vector-controlled symmetrical two-phase induction motor (TPIM) is presented as a viable replacement for the vector-controlled SPIM. The implementation of the proposed vector-controlled TPIM is simple compared to the vectorcontrolled SPIM. All the TPIM parameters can be calculated simply and precisely. The proposed strategy for TPIM is derived from the indirect vector control strategy used for three-phase ac machines. Several differences between the vector control strategies for the TPIM and for three-phase ac motor are discussed. The validity of the proposed vector-controlled TPIM was verified by simulations and experiments. © 2012 IEEE.

This paper outlines the new physics possibilities that fall within the field of nuclear structure and astrophysics based on experiments with radioactive ion beams at the future Rare Isotope Beams Accelerator facility in Korea. This ambitious multi-beam facility has both an Isotope Separation On Line (ISOL) and fragmentation capability to produce rare isotopes beams (RIBs) and will be capable of producing and accelerating beams of wide range mass of nuclides with energies of a few to hundreds MeV per nucleon. The large dynamic range of reaccelerated RIBs will allow the optimization in each nuclear reaction case with respect to cross section and channel opening. The low energy RIBs around Coulomb barrier offer nuclear reactions such as elastic resonance scatterings, one or two particle transfers, Coulomb multiple-excitations, fusion-evaporations, and direct capture reactions for the study of the very neutron-rich and proton-rich nuclides. In contrast, the high energy RIBs produced by in-flight fragmentation with reaccelerated ions from the ISOL enable to explore the study of neutron drip lines in intermediate mass regions. The proposed studies aim at investigating the exotic nuclei near and beyond the nucleon drip lines, and to explore how nuclear many-body systems change in such extreme regions by addressing the following topics: the evolution of shell structure in areas of extreme proton to neutron imbalance; the study of the weak interaction in exotic decay schemes such as beta-delayed two-neutron or two-proton emission; the change of isospin symmetry in isobaric mirror nuclei at the drip lines; two protons or two neutrons radioactivity beyond the drip lines; the role of the continuum states including resonant states above the particle-decay threshold in exotic nuclei; and the effects of nuclear reaction rates triggered by the unbound proton-rich nuclei on nuclear astrophysical processes. © 2014 Author(s).

This paper attempts to investigate the causal relationship between electricity consumption and economic growth among seven South American countries, namely Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela using widely accepted time-series techniques for the period 1975-2006. The results indicate that the causal nexus between electricity consumption and economic growth varies across countries. There is a unidirectional, short-run causality from electricity consumption to real GDP for Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Columbia, and Ecuador. This means that an increase in electricity consumption directly affects economic growth in those countries. In Venezuela, there is a bidirectional causality between electricity consumption and economic growth. This implies that an increase in electricity consumption directly affects economic growth and that economic growth also stimulates further electricity consumption in that country. However, no causal relationships exist in Peru. The documented evidence from seven South American countries can provide useful information for each government with regard to energy and growth policy. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The gas-phase self-assembly of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanoflakes with highly ordered ultrafine titania (TiO2) particles was performed and the resultant hybrid material displayed an enhanced photocatalytic performance, both in producing hydrogen and in degrading dyes. Freshly synthesized TiO 2 nanoparticles (∼35 nm in equivalent mobility diameter) were quantitatively incorporated with nanoscale rGO (∼36 nm in equivalent mobility diameter) in the form of TiO2/rGO hybrid nanoflakes (∼31 nm in equivalent mobility diameter). The TiO2/rGO hybrid flakes were finally employed to evaluate its photocatalytic activity, and it was found that the ability to achieve hydrogen production and dye degradation was greater than that of a hybridized material from commercial p25-TiO2 and large rGO. This gas-phase self-assembly also enhanced the photocatalytic activity by applying different spark configurations to prepare ZnO, Au, or Ag particles incorporated with rGO nanoflakes. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
