Based on density functional theory and non-equilibrium Green's function method, we investigate the transport properties of four different gases (NO, NO2, NH3, and CO) adsorbed on biphenyl dithiol molecules coupled to gold leads. Since the transmission function is strongly affected by quantum interference, namely antiresonance and Fano resonances, significant changes in conductance caused by the adsorption of molecular gases are archived. Our findings suggest that biphenyl dithiol exhibits strong sensitivity for NO and NO2 which results from their interference features being close to the Fermi energy of the gold leads and dominate the transport of the system. Moreover, the quantum interference effects also result in enhanced and suppressed conductance, which enable us to significantly improve the selectivity. In particular, a distinction between NO, NO2 and NH3 gases based on the biphenyl dithiol appears possible. © 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

Well-known conductive molecular wires, such as cumulene or polyyne, provide a model for interconnecting molecular electronics circuits. In recent experiments, the appearance of carbon wire bridging between two-dimensional electrodes, i.e., graphene sheets, was observed, thus demonstrating a mechanical way of producing cumulene. In this work, we studied the structure and conductance of carbon wire suspended between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) of different chiralities (zigzag and armchair), and corresponding conductance variation upon stretching. We found that the geometric structure of the carbon wire bridging CNTs was similar to the experimentally observed structures in carbon wire obtained between graphene electrodes. We show a way to modulate conductance by changing bridging sites between carbon wire and CNTs without breaking the wire. Observed current modulation via cumulene wire stretching or elongation together with CNT junction stability makes this a promising candidate for use in mechano-switching devices for molecular nanoelectronics. © 2013 American Physical Society.

Graphene nanogaps and nanopores show potential for the purpose of electrical DNA sequencing, in particular because single-base resolution appears to be readily achievable. Here, we evaluated from first principles the advantages of a nanogap setup with functionalized graphene edges. To this end, we employed density functional theory and the non-equilibrium Green's function method to investigate the transverse conductance properties of the four nucleotides occurring in DNA when located between opposing functionalized graphene electrodes. In particular, we determined the electrical tunneling current variation as a function of the applied bias and analyzed the associated differential conductance at a voltage which appears suitable to distinguish between the four nucleotides. Intriguingly, we predict for one of the nucleotides (deoxyguanosine monophosphate) a negative differential resistance effect. © 2013 American Chemical Society.

This study evaluates the mixture of ground calcium carbide residue (GCR) and ground fly ash (GFA) for use as a new cementing material to produce high strength concrete. Ordinary Portland cement was used as an activator to promote the reaction between GCR and GFA. Compressive strength, modulus of elasticity, heat evolution, and durability in term of water permeability of concrete were investigated and compared with concrete made from ordinary Portland cement (OPC concrete). The results showed that GCR-GFA mixture, despite containing no Portland cement, had a high potential to be used as a new cementing material for producing high strength concrete having a compressive strength that exceeds 50MPa. Furthermore, the compressive strength of GCR-GFA concrete containing 20% Portland cement (used Portland cement of 110kg/m3) could be as high as 67MPa or 95% of OPC concrete at 28days and increased up to 73MPa at 90days or 90% of OPC concrete (used Portland cement of 550kg/m3). The GCR-GFA concretes with and without Portland cement had moduli of elasticity similar to OPC concrete i.e., they increased with the compressive strength. In addition, water permeability of high strength concrete made from GCR-GFA mixture was equal to or slightly lower than OPC concrete. Finally, concrete made from GCR-GFA mixture had much lower heat evolution than OPC concrete. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Avian influenza is caused by influenza virus type A. First infected case was reported in Hong Kong during a poultry outbreak in 1997. After that, there were the reports of the sporadic outbreak in all regions. In this study, we consider the transmission model of avian influenza when there is the traveling of tourists from the risk countries. We consider the dynamical changes of three population groups: Thai human, Hong Kong human and bird populations. The behaviors of the modified equations are obtained by using a standard dynamical modeling method. This method is used for analyzing the behaviors of solutions. The stability conditions for the disease free and endemic equilibrium states are determined. The threshold parameter is defined by R0. When R0 < 1, the disease-free state is locally asymptotically stable. If R0 > 1, the endemic equilibrium state is locally asymptotically stable. The numerical solutions are shown for supporting the theoretical results. © Medwell Journals, 2016.

This study aimed to search for the best indicator to be used for the harvest of maize pods for baby corn production. A Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with four replications was used. The treatments are: T 1(Control) Taking sample when silks of female flower had extended from tip of pod up to 3 cm long T 2, silks had extended 1 cm long T 3, silks had extended 2 cm long T 4, blooming of female flower for 2 days T 5, blooming of female flowers for 4 days T 6, blooming of female flower for 6 days T 7, one third blooming of male flower T 8, two third blooming of male flower and T 9, full bloom of male flower. Five baby corn Characteristics were used i.e., (1) fresh weight of whole ears, (2) fresh weight of ears without husk, (3) commercial standard ears, (4) off standard ears and (5) disordered kernel-rows of ears. A range of scores from 1 to 9 was applied to judge quality and yield in each item of the five baby corn characteristics. A score of 1 = the best whilst further increases in scores indicated the decline in quality of baby corn. The results showed that an indicator for use in harvesting pods of maize for baby corn production was found with T 6, i.e. the best time for the harvest of pods is when the female flowers had bloomed for 6 days after the appearance of silks. © 2011 Asian Network for Scientific Information.

In this paper, we give a review on Bilateral filtering as a tool for image smoothing with edge preserving properties. Bilateral filtering is a combination of domain and range filtering. Domain filtering measures the geometric closeness between the neighborhood center and nearby points. Therefore, domain filtering acts as a gaussian filtering. In range filtering, the similarity between two pixels are measured in which similar pixel values are weighted as a high influence while discarding dissimilar ones. We give a review on traditional bilateral filtering. We also describe a modified bilateral filtering based on fuzzy membership function, the fuzzy bilateral filtering. In fuzzy bilateral filtering, the skin is smoothed while maintaining the edges and non skin area, therefore, a more beautiful face image can be achieved. We will demonstrate some of its applications especially on skin smoothing. © 2014 IEEE.

The Ocean Beach Domain in Dunedin, New Zealand has an ongoing issue with persistent scarping leading to high maintenance, poor public access, and potential hazards due to the infill used to create the foredune. The ongoing cost of replacing sand and repairing erosion damage has led the local council to explore the possibility of a more sustainable long-term solution. A foredune will still be required but the question is how much space between the beach and foredune is needed to alleviate the current issues. Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling has therefore been used to identify suitable future foredune morphologies in this situation. The scenarios modelled were; the current unfeasible Marram grass covered steep foredune system; the relatively untouched (1890) morphology; and interim positions that accommodate the coastal processes by retreating the foredune system. Additional three-dimensional simulations using LIDAR data to recreate the topography give a relationship between the dune system and the dominant direction of the wind flow. The success of these proposed dune morphologies is discussed in terms of sand transportation, fit to the council's ongoing management goals which includes protection of low lying houses and an analysis of the success of using such numerical simulation in coastal planning. Numerical simulation is shown to present the opportunity to help with future coastal management scenarios. This work has shown that the current dune morphology at the Ocean Beach Domain is unrealistic but that there are alternative profiles that could satisfy both public and council imperatives.

In this study, we demonstrate an ability to control the photophysical properties of nanoparticles of regioregular poly(3-octylthiophene) (rr-P3OT) by utilizing solvent-nonsolvent system. The strength of local polymer-solvent interactions is controlled by using hexane or hexanol as a poor solvent. We have found that the assembling of rr-P3OT chains in mixtures of toluene and these poor solvents results in the formation of nanoparticles with average diameter of about 35 nm. Interestingly, the use of hexane or hexanol as a poor solvent causes drastic variation of photophysical properties of the resultant nanoparticles. Their absorption spectra show quite different patterns. In addition, the photoluminescent (PL) peaks are detected at 565 nm and 645 nm in the systems of toluene/hexane and toluene/hexanol, respectively. Photoemission quantum efficiency of the nanoparticles also depends significantly on type of the poor solvents. We further demonstrate that the photophysical properties can be systematically controlled by using a series of linear alcohols as poor solvents. The increase of alcohol chain length causes the decrease of its polarity, which in turn improves the polymer-solvent interactions. In the system of toluene/decanol, PL spectrum of the nanoparticles covers relatively broad energy region, ranging from about 540 to 770 nm. Our study provides a simple method for preparation of rr-P3OT nanoparticles with controllable photophysical properties. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

In this paper, magnetization transition width and shape were calculated by Wiener deconvolution on the measured replay waveform. It was found that the signal-to-noise ratio of replay waveform above 40dB, the error of computed magnetization transition was less than 1%. It can be observed that the magnetization transition from the experimental measurement is close to the tanh function and the transition width parameter was found to be as same as the result from using the replay signal fitted with magnetization function. © 2014 IEEE.
