Optically Active Plasmonic Metasurfaces based on the Hybridization of In-Plane Coupling and Out-of-Plane Coupling

Plasmonic metasurfaces have attracted much attention in recent years owing to many promising prospects of applications such as polarization switching, local electric field enhancement (FE), near-perfect absorption, sensing, slow-light devices, and nanoantennas. However, many problems in these applications, like only gigahertz switching speeds of electro-optical switches, low...

Feasibility and Reliability of Grain Noise Suppression in Monitoring of Highly Scattering Materials

A feasibility study on grain noise suppression using baseline subtraction is presented in this paper. Monitoring is usually done with permanently installed transducers but this is not always possible; here instead monitoring is conducted by carrying out repeat C-scans and the feasibility of grain noise suppression by subtracting A-scans extracted from the C-scans is investigated...

Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) is an intermediate in the process of luteinizing hormone-induced decrease in natriuretic peptide receptor 2 (NPR2) and resumption of oocyte meiosis

Luteinizing hormone (LH) regulation of the ligand, natriuretic peptide precursor type C, and its receptor, natriuretic peptide receptor 2 (NPR2), is critical for oocyte maturation; however, the mechanism is not fully understood. Macrophage colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) has recently been shown to be involved in oocyte maturation and ovulation. In the present study we...

Side impact motor vehicle crashes: driver, passenger, vehicle and crash characteristics for fatally and nonfatally-injured rear-seated adults

Background Most studies of rear-seated occupants have focused on or included pediatric occupants which may not translate to adults. This study examines passenger, driver, vehicle and crash characteristics for rear-seated adult occupants involved in side crashes. Methods The National Automotive Sampling System General Estimates System (NASS/GES) for calendar years 2011–2014 was...

Numerical Study of an Efficient Solar Absorber Consisting of Metal Nanoparticles

We propose and theoretically investigate an efficient solar light absorber based on a multilayer structure consisting of tungsten nanoparticle layers and SiO2 layers. According to our calculation, average absorbance over 94% is achieved in the wavelength range between 400 and 2500 nm for the proposed absorber. The excellent performance of the absorber can be attributed to the...

Fault Diagnosis of Planetary Gear Based on Fuzzy Entropy of CEEMDAN and MLP Neural Network by Using Vibration Signal

A method of planetary gear fault diagnosis based on the fuzzy entropy of complete ensemble empirical mode decomposition with adaptive noise (CEEMDAN) and multi-layer perceptron (MLP) neural network is proposed. The vibration signal is decomposed into multiple intrinsic mode functions (IMFs) by CEEMDAN, and the fuzzy entropy that combines the fuzzy function and sample entropy is...

Long-term feeding of high-fat plus high-fructose diet induces isolated impaired glucose tolerance and skeletal muscle insulin resistance in miniature pigs

During the prediabetic development, the changes in β-cell function and tissue-specific insulin resistance have been described. However, there are conflicting views in insulin secretory capacity between early clinical observation and recent proposed mathematical model. On the basis of digestive and metabolic similarities with humans, swine have great potential as an animal model...

Two-step deposition of Al-doped ZnO on p-GaN to form ohmic contacts

Al-doped ZnO (AZO) thin films were deposited directly on p-GaN substrates by using a two-step deposition consisting of polymer assisted deposition (PAD) and atomic layer deposition (ALD) methods. Ohmic contacts of the AZO on p-GaN have been formed. The lowest sheet resistance of the two-step prepared AZO films reached to 145 Ω/sq, and the specific contact resistance reduced to 1...

Two-way relaying schemes in full duplex cellular system

Recently, full duplex (FD) has been attracting great attention, due to its capability to double the spectral efficiency. In this paper, we focus on a FD wireless communication network, in which a FD base station (BS) and a half duplex (HD) mobile station (MS) exchange their information via a HD relay station (RS) within two phases. An amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying scheme and...
