Estimating along-track plasma drift speed from electron density measurements by the three Swarm satellites
(European Geosciences Union, 2015)
Plasma convection in the high-latitude ionosphere provides important information about magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling. In this study we estimate the along-track component of plasma convection within and ...
Modeling and analysis of a high-displacement pneumatic artificial muscle with integrated sensing
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2019-01-07)
We present a high-displacement pneumatic artificial muscle made of textiles or plastics that can include integrated electronics to sense its pressure and displacement. Compared to traditional pneumatic muscle actuators ...
Long-Term Decision on Wind Investment with Considering Different Load Ranges of Power Plant for Sustainable Electricity Energy Market
The aim of this paper is to provide a bi-level model for the expansion planning on wind investment while considering different load ranges of power plants in power systems at a multi-stage horizon. Different technologies ...
Blood Vessel Patterning on Retinal Astrocytes Requires Endothelial Flt-1 (VEGFR-1)
Feedback mechanisms are critical components of many pro-angiogenic signaling pathways that keep vessel growth within a functional range. The Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-A (VEGF-A) pathway utilizes the decoy VEGF-A ...
Folic Acid-Conjugated Cellulose Nanocrystals Show High Folate-Receptor Binding Affinity and Uptake by KB and Breast Cancer Cells
(American Chemical Society, 2018-10-24)
The study evaluates cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) as nanocarriers for targeted, intracellular delivery of molecular agents. CNCs were labeled with fluorescein-5′-isothiocyanate as an imaging agent and conjugated to folic ...
Optoperforation of single, intact Arabidopsis cells for uptake of extracellular dye-conjugated dextran
(Optical Society of America, 2013-06-01)
A plant science research goal is to manipulate single cells in an intact organism in order to study their interactions with neighboring cells. Based on a technique previously demonstrated in isolated plant cells, mammalian ...
Optimal layout of transshipment facility locations on an infinite homogeneous plane

The effects of damage on sign visibility: An assist in traffic sign replacement
Traffic signs often convey critical information to drivers. To ensure visibility in nighttime or low light conditions, traffic signs must be in compliance with the minimum retroreflectivity standards outlined by the manual ...
