  1. System Ca3(VO4)2-Na3VO4-LaVO4

    Using the method of x-ray phase analysis, the phase equilibria in the system Ca3(VO4)2-Na3VO4-LaVO4 were studied. An extensive solid solution in calcium orthovanadate bounded by the compositions Ca3(VO4)2-Ca9La(VO4)7-Ca10Na(VO4)7-Ca8.5Na1.75La0.75(V)4)7 was found. The unit cell parameters of whitlockite vanadates increase with a rise in the sodium or lanthanum concentration. Ferroelectric phase transitions in Ca3-3xLa2x(VO4)2 vanadates were studied using thermal analysis, electrical conductivity measurements, and dielectric constant measurements

  2. Phases of variable composition in the Ca3(VO4)2-NdVO4 - Na3VO4 system

    Phase equilibriums in the Ca3(VO4)2 - NdVO4-Na3VO4 system are studied. Formation of variable composition phases on the base of calcium orthovanadate is established. The field of variable composition phase is placed inside of Ca3(VO4)2 - Ca9Nd□(VO4)7 - Ca10Na(VO4)7 - Ca8NdNa2(VO4)7 (Z = 6) quadrangle. Boundary compositions are determined by structure of low temperature modification of Ca3(VO4)2 (Z = 21, sp. gr. R3c). The degree of Ca(4) positions occupancy has influence on phase transition temperature, ionic conductivity and parameters of IR- and CS-spectra. Considerable growth of the conductivity higher than 650 K on the calcium ions is explained by order-disorder transformation associated with disproportional of structural vacancies (□) on different cation positions

  3. Interaction in the FeVO4-NaOH-NaCl-H2O system

    The solubility in the FeVO4-NaOH-NaCl-H2O system is studied using the saturation method at 22+-0.5 deg C and constant ionic force μ=1.0. The existence of the basic mixed sodium and iron (3) ortho- vanadates of the composition: Na4Fe9(OH)4(VO4)9xnH2O, NaFeOHVO4xnH2O, Na2Fe(OH)2VO4xnH2O is established. Conditions of their preparation and the results of IR spectroscopic study of the salts are presented

  4. Solubility in the NH4Cl-NaVO3-NH4VO3-NaCl-H2O system

    Solubility of salts in reciprocal system NH4Cl-NaVO3-NH4VO3-NaCl-H2O at 20 deg C was studied by the method of isothermal saturation using the chemical and X-ray phase analyses, the system solubility diagram being plotted. The diagram contains separate fields of salts crystallization, limited by five branches, and two ternary points. The ratio of the salts crystallization surface areas is approximately equal to 90000:10000:3:1 (NH4VO3:NaVO3:NaCl:NH4Cl), i.e. above 90% of crystallization field is occupied by ammonium vanadate, featuring the lowest solubility

    2016-01-01

    A novel and environmentally friendly route to directly prepare metallic vanadium from NaVO3 by molten salt electrolysis is proposed. The feasibility about the direct electro-reduction of NaVO3 to metallic vanadi-um is analyzed based on the thermodynamic calculations and experimental verifications. The theoretical decomposition voltage of NaVO3 to metallic vanadium is only 0.47 V at 800 °C and much lower than that of the alkali and alkali earth metal chloride salts. The value is slightly higher than that of low-valence vanadium oxides such as V2O3, V3O5 and VO. However, the low-valence vanadium oxides can be further electro-reduced to metallic vanadium thermodynamically. The thermodynamic analysis is verified by the experimental results. The direct preparation of metallic vanadium from NaVO3 by molten salt electrolysis is feasible.

    Ji, Zhang; De-Ming, Zhang; Qing-Li, Zhang; Shao-Tang, Yin

    2016-03-01

    Raman spectra of a vanadoborate (Na3VO2B6O11) crystal from room temperature up to the melting point have been recorded. The main internal vibrational modes of the crystal have been assigned. It was found that all the Raman bands exhibit decreases in frequency and the widths of the Raman bands increase with the increase of temperature. However, no phase transition was observed under 525 °C. The micro-structure of its melt was studied by quantum chemistry ab initio calculation. The continuous three-dimensional network of the crystal collapsed and transformed into VO4 and VBO6 clusters during the melting process with an isomerization reaction from four-coordinated boron to a three-coordinated species.

  11. Hot corrosion behaviour of Fe-Al based intermetallic in molten NaVO3 salt

    The hot corrosion of sprayed Fe-40 (at.%)Al intermetallic alloy with additions of boron and alumina whiskers in molten NaVO3 at 700 deg. C has been evaluated by potentiodynamic polarization curves and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, EIS, techniques. For short exposure times, the corrosion mechanism under these conditions was observed to be controlled by an activation process, whereas for longer exposure times, the corrosion process was under diffusion control due to the growing of an Al2O3 oxide scale, which made the diffusion of both reducing and oxidizing species through the scale to the alloy or scale surfaces more difficult. Equivalent electric model used to simulate the EIS data showed that a finite length Warburg diffusion could properly characterize the diffusion process, which confirmed the formation of a compact corrosion product scales containing rich aluminium oxide. Thus, the corrosion process was under diffusion control of aggressive ions through the formed scale. The electrochemical study was complemented by scanning electronic microscopy characterization and micro chemical analysis.

  12. Structure, Raman and infrared spectroscopic properties of new nonlinear optical material Na3VO2B6O11

    Zhang, Ji; Dou, Renqin; Zhang, Deming; Zhang, Qingli; Yin, Shaotang

    2016-08-01

    In this paper we report on the structure of Na3VO2B6O11 (NVBO) single crystals which were investigated by XRD, polarized Raman spectra in the range from 10 to 1600 cm-1 and infrared spectrum (IR) in the range from 100 to 1600 cm-1. Factor group analysis has been used to study the full vibrational representation of the crystal. More than 120 phonon modes have been obtained, which are related to Bsbnd O and Vsbnd O vibration in the trigonal planar BO3 triangle groups and tetrahedral BO4/VO4 groups. The high frequency bands located at 1300-1415 cm-1 are assigned to stretching modes of the trigonal planar BO3 groups. Moreover, intense Raman modes located at 631 cm-1 is related to BO3 bending vibration as well. The weak band at 1158 cm-1 (A1 mode) and strong band at 431 cm-1 (A1 mode) are attributed to asymmetric stretching and bending vibration mode of tetrahedral BO4 groups respectively. The vibrational band at 765-738 cm-1 in the Raman spectra of NVBO crystal maybe related to the breathing vibration of the boroxol ring consisting of two BO4 tetrahedra. In addition, we assigned the intense band 900 (A1 mode) and 831 cm-1 (B2 mode) are relative to the v1 symmetric stretching vibration of VO4 tetrahedra. And the middle intense band at 382 (A1 mode) and 385 (A2 mode) are due to Osbnd Vsbnd O vibration in VO4 tetrahedra.

    2016-05-01

    The samarium doped NaCaVO4 phosphor was synthesized by the combustion method. The X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) analysis confirmed that the phosphor powder crystallized as orthorhombic structure belonging to space group Cmcm. From Williamson-Hall analysis the grain size and microstrain in the powder was estimated. The Fourier- transform infrared (FT-IR) studies further validated the formation of vanadate phase of the phosphor. Photoluminescence (PL) study revealed that the phosphor could be efficiently excited by UV-VIS from 200 nm to 500 nm. The 565 nm, 602 nm, 648 nm and 713 nm emissions were ascribed to 4G5/2 to 6HJ (J = 5/2, 7/2, 9/2 and 11/2) transitions of the Sm3+ ion. The present material may be explored as a novel phosphor to be excited by UV light emitting diodes (LEDs) chips for solid-state lighting and display applications.

  14. Properties of La(Y)(NO3)3-Na3VO4 solutions and their botton phase composition

    Properties of a series of solutions La(Y)(NO3)3-Na3VO4 with a constant concentration of lanthanum (yttrium) nitrate and variable concentration of sodium vanadate, chemical and phase compositions of the bottom phases, formed both in eqUilibrium and nonequilibrium conditions at pHsub(Nasub(3)VOsub(4))=12.8(1) and 9.8(2), have been studied using the methods of PMR, DTA, IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, crystallooptical and chemical analyses. It has been established that in series 1 normal lanthanum (yttrium) orthovanadate is formed. In series 2 in a nonequilibrium mixture of solutions dipolyvanadate of La(Y) together with acid salt of orthovanadic acid are formed, and in an equilibrium one-dipolyvanadate and normal salt of orthovanadic acid. The change in the bottom phase composition with time takes place at the expense of the acid salt dissolution and hydrolysis of cations with the subsequent deposition of normal salt of orthovanadic acid

  17. Polymorphism of NaVO2F2: a P2₁/c superstructure with pseudosymmetry of P2₁/m in the subcell.

    The ADDSYM routine in the program PLATON [Spek (2015). Acta Cryst. C71, 9-18] has helped researchers to avoid structures of (metal-)organic compounds being reported in an unnecessarily low symmetry space group. However, determination of the correct space group may get more complicated in cases of pseudosymmetric inorganic compounds. One example is NaVO2F2, which was reported [Crosnier-Lopez et al. (1994). Eur. J. Solid State Inorg. Chem. 31, 957-965] in the acentric space group P2₁ based on properties but flagged by ADDSYM as (pseudo)centrosymmetric P2₁/m within default distance tolerances. Herein a systematic investigation reveals that NaVO2F2 exists in at least four polymorphs: P2₁, (I), P2₁/m, (II), P2₁/c, (III), and one or more low-temperature ones. The new centrosymmetric modification, (III), with the space group P2₁/c has a similar atomic packing geometry to phase (I), except for having a doubled c axis. The double-cell of phase (III) arises from atomic shifts from the glide plane c at (x, ¼, z). With increasing temperature, the number of observed reflections decreases. The odd l reflections gradually become weaker and, correspondingly, all atoms shift towards the glide plane, resulting in a gradual second-order transformation of (III) into high-temperature phase (II) (P2₁/m) at below 493 K. At least one first-order enantiotropic phase transition was observed below 139 K from both the single-crystal X-ray diffraction and the differential scanning calorimetry analyses. Periodic first-principles calculations within density functional theory show that both P2₁/c superstructure (III) and P2₁ substructure (I) are more stable than P2₁/m structure (II), and that P2₁/c superstructure (III) is more stable that P2₁ substructure (I).

A ventilação pulmonar (V E, o consumo de oxigênio (VO2, a produção de dióxido de carbono (VCO2 e a razão de troca respiratória (RER foram calculadas a partir de valores medidos por um sistema espirométrico computadorizado. Os resultados deste estudo demonstraram que houve variabilidade significante do VO2 máx (p < 0,05 somente quando se comparou a resposta instantânea respiração-a-respiração (breath-by-breath em relação aos outros intervalos de tempos analisados (10, 20, 30, 40, 50 e 60 segundos, respectivamente. Concluindo, durante o exercício de intensidade progressiva, observou-se que o aumento do VO2 foi proporcional à diminuição do intervalo de tempo da coleta ventilatória. O tempo de intervalo maior subestimou esse aumento. Assim, sugere-se que o avaliador utilize intervalos médios na faixa de tempo entre 10 e 60 segundos, pois não foi verificada diferença estatística significante entre esses intervalos.

  10. Measurement and modeling for vanadium extraction from the (NaVO3 + H2SO4 + H2O) system by primary amine N1923

    Highlights: • LLE data for vanadium extraction by primary amine N1923 were obtained. • Three extraction reactions were determined with the slope method. • Thermodynamic equilibrium constants and new Pitzer parameters were regressed. • The prediction performance of this new model was discussed and verified. - Abstract: In this work, the solvent extraction of vanadium by using the primary amine N1923 as extractant was studied. Within different vanadium concentration ranges, the extraction reactions were determined using the slope method at T = 298.15 K based on the vanadium phase diagram. The slopes (the stoichiometric ratio) were determined as 5/3, 1 and 11/3 for (RNH2)5/3H3VO4,(RNH2)H3V3O9 and (RNH2)11/3H6V10O28, respectively. The thermodynamic model was established through regression of the experimental results with the Pitzer equation for both aqueous and organic phases by the General Algebraic Modelling System (GAMS). Three different sets of parameters and chemical equilibrium constants K were determined, which corresponded to the three extraction reactions. The orders of the lnK values are V10>V3>V1 (organic V species), and the distribution coefficients (DV) are DV1>DV3>DV10. The new model was applied to predict the regularities of extraction yield along with different initial conditions, and the results agree well with the experimental values

U ovom smo se istraživanju usredotočili na specifične procese vidne percepcije i pažnje te utjecaj relativno niskih razina alkohola na njih. U istraživanju je sudjelovalo 47 studenata raznih fakulteta Sveučilišta u Zagrebu. Sudionici u eksperimentalnoj skupini (N=22 konzumirali su alkoholni koktel stopostotnoga narančinog soka i votke kako bi dostigli ciljanu razinu alkohola u krvi od 0.8 g/kg, dok su sudionici u kontrolnoj skupini (N=25 konzumirali placebo – samo narančin sok sa snažnom aromom etilnoga alkohola. Nakon konzumacije pića sudionici su rješavali zadatak vidne percepcije i pažnje koji se sastojao od kratkoga video-isječka koji prikazuje režiranu realnu prometnu situaciju u kojoj jedno vozilo slijedi drugo s centralnim zadatkom brojanja paljenja ''štop'' svjetala na vozilu koje se kreće ispred njega, te percepcije značajnih objekata i detalja iz okoline poput dječjih kolica, djeteta koje prelazi cestu, prometnih zakova i sl. Provedenim je istraživanjem utvrđeno kako sudionici pod utjecajem alkohola postižu statistički značajno slabiji rezultat u zadatku vidne percepcije od sudionika koji nisu pod utjecajem alkohola.

    Full Text Available O consumo máximo de oxigênio (VO2máx é a quantidade máxima de energia que pode ser produzida pelo metabolismo aeróbio em determinada unidade de tempo, podendo ser determinado direta ou indiretamente através de equações preditivas. O objetivo deste trabalho foi elaborar uma equação preditiva específica para determinar o VO2máx de meninos de 10 a 16 anos. Quarenta e dois meninos realizaram teste ergoespirométrico de corrida em esteira rolante com velocidade inicial de 9 km/h até exaustão voluntária. Através da regressão linear múltipla foi possível desenvolver a seguinte equação para a determinação indireta do VO2máx: VO2máx (ml/min = -1574,06 + (141,38 x Vpico + (48,34 * Massa corporal, com erro padrão de estimativa = 191,5 ml/min (4,10 ml/kg/min e o coeficiente de determinação = 0,934. Sugerimos que esta é uma fórmula adequada para predizer o VO2máx para esta população.The maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max is the maximal quantity of energy that can be produced by the aerobic metabolism in certain time unity. It can be determined direct or indirectly by predictive equations. The objective of this study was to make a specific predictive equation to determine the VO2max from boys aged 10-16 years-old. Forty-two boys underwent a treadmill running ergospirometric test, with the initial velocity set at 9 km/h, until voluntary exhaustion. By the multiple linear regression was possible to develop the following equation for the indirect determination of the VO2max: VO2max (ml/min = -1574.06 + (141.38 x Vpeak + (48.34 * Body mass, with standard error of estimate = 191.5 ml/min (4.10 ml/kg/min and coefficient of determination = 0.934.

    Full Text Available La biomasa es el resultado de la transformación de la energía solar en energía química. El hombre a través de la historia la ha utilizado no solo para su alimentación sino también para la alimentación de sus animales. Los avances de la ciencia promovieron el desarrollo agrario basado en la revolución verde, la cual solo promueve la producción de alimentos ya sea de uso humano o animal, marginando la importancia de la biomasa como enriquecedor del recurso suelo al disponerse de los insumos necesarios para sustituir su fertilidad natural. En la actualidad la producción y conservación de la biomasa de cualquier cultivo cobra una importancia trascendente; porque ello contribuye, además, a la protección medioambiental a través de la captura de carbono. El presente trabajo tuvo como objetivo demostrar la importancia que proporciona la biomasa generalmente no alimenticia para los humanos, a fin de emplearla no solo como alimento animal, sino también como enriquecedora del recurso natural suelo. Las investigaciones realizadas en Cuba sobre el tema es pobre, aun cuando en la actualidad resulta de gran importancia encontrar variantes que permitan profundizar en la producción de biomasa en su relación con el medio ambiente. Finalmente se exponen los resultados preliminares sobre producción de biomasa a partir de la agrobiodiversidad presente en los escenarios productivos, a la vez que se reflexiona sobre la importancia del tema para futuras investigaciones.

  18. On vanadium(5) alcoholates. Behavior of VO2Cl to organic solvents

    By means of exchange reaction between VOCl3 and NaOR VO(OR)3 (R = Et, i - Pr) is prepared. It is shown that the interaction is complicated by the formation of alkoxychlorides, which are successfully destructed by the introduction of NaOR excess. For the synthesis of VO(OMe)3 the reaction of VO(OEt)3 reesterification by methyl alcohol is used. VO(OR)3 prepared is characterized by the data of IR spectroscopy, mass-spectrometry, X-ray phase analysis. Existence of dimeric molecules in gaseous phase is ascertained. The study of VO2Cl exchange reaction has shown that alcoholates of the series VO2(OR) can not be synthesized by the method, since in case of VO2Cl contact with alcohol alkoxyl is substituted for one oxogroup with the formation of VO(OR)2Cl. Solvolysis processes take place also in case of VO2Cl interaction with other oxygen-containing organic solvents

    2014-05-01

    We introduce two products for accessing the VO from Python: PyVO and VOClient. PyVO is built on the widely-used Astropy package and is well suited for integrating automated access to astronomical data into highly customizable scripts and applications for data analysis in Python. VOClient is built on a collection of C-libraries and is well suited for integrating with multi-language analysis packages. It also provides a framework for integrating legacy software into the Python environment. In this demo, we will run through several examples demonstrate basic data discovery and retrieval of data. This includes finding archives containing data of interest (VO registry), retrieving datasets (SIA, SSA), and exploring (Cone Search, SLAP). VOClient features some extended capabilities including the ability to communicate to other desktop applications from a script using the SAMP protocol.

Más de la mitad de la población utiliza biomasa como combustible principal, sobre todo en áreas rurales y en países en vías de desarrollo donde su uso llega hasta el 80%. La inhalación del humo de biomasa crea un estado inflamatorio crónico, que se acompaña de una activación de metaloproteinasas y una reducción de la movilidad mucociliar. Esto podría explicar la gran asociación existente entre la exposición a biomasa y EPOC, revelada por estudios observacionales y epidemiológicos provenientes de países en vías de desarrollo y de países desarrollados. En esta revisión exploramos también las diferencias entre la EPOC causada por tabaco y por biomasa, y encontramos que, a pesar de las diferencias fisiopatológicas, la mayoría de las características clínicas, calidad de vida y mortalidad fueron parecidas. En los últimos diez años se han realizado intervenciones para disminuir la exposición a biomasa mediante el uso de cocinas mejoradas y combustibles limpios, sin embargo, estas estrategias todavía no han sido exitosas debido a su incapacidad para reducir los niveles de contaminación a niveles recomendados por la Organización Mundial de la Salud, y por su falta de uso. Por lo tanto, hay una necesidad urgente de ensayos de campo aleatorios, cuidadosamente realizados, para determinar la verdadera gama de reducciones de contaminación potencialmente alcanzables, la probabilidad de su uso y los beneficios a largo plazo en la reducción de la gran carga mundial de EPOC

    Full Text Available People have been utilizing Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP in most of the conventional communication facilities which has been of assistance in the enormous attenuation of operating costs, as well as the promotion of next- generation communication services-based IP. As an intimidating upshot, cyber criminals have correspondingly started interjecting the environment and creating new challenges for the law enforcement system in any Country. This paper presents an idea of a framework for the forensic analysis of the VoIP traffic over the network. This forensic activity includes spotting and scrutinizing the network patterns of VoIP-SIP stream, which is used to initiate a session for the communication, and regenerate the content from VoIP-RTP stream, which is employed to convey the data. Proposed network forensic investigation framework also accentuates on developing an efficient packet restructuring algorithm for tracing the depraved users involved in a conversation. Network forensics is the basis of proposed work, and performs packet level surveillance of VoIP followed by reconstruction of original malicious content or network session between users for their prosecution in the court.

    Full Text Available Vanadium dioxide VO2 has been paid in recent years increasing attention because of its various applications, however, its oxidation resistance properties in air atmosphere have rarely been reported. Herein, VO2(B nanobelts were transformed into VO2(A and VO2(M nanobelts by hydrothermal route and calcination treatment, respectively. Then, we comparatively studied the oxidation resistance properties of VO2(B, VO2(A and VO2(M nanobelts in air atmosphere by thermo-gravimetric analysis and differential thermal analysis (TGA/DTA. It was found that the nanobelts had good thermal stability and oxidation resistance below 341 °C, 408 °C and 465 °C in air, respectively, indicating that they were stable in air at room temperature. The fierce oxidation of the nanobelts occurred at 426, 507 and 645 °C, respectively. The results showed that the VO2(M nanobelts had the best thermal stability and oxidation resistance among the others. Furthermore, the phase transition temperatures and optical switching properties of VO2(A and VO2(M were studied by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC and variable temperature infrared spectra. It was found that the VO2(A and VO2(M nanobelts had outstanding thermochromic character and optical switching properties.

En este trabajo se evaluó a nivel de matraz el efecto de la relación C/N, y la presencia de diferentes fuentes de carbono, nitrógeno y micronutrientes sobre la producción de biomasa. Empleando glucosa y peptona como fuentes de carbono y nitrógeno, respectivamente, se encontró una relación C/N óptima de 16,7:1 para la cual la máxima producción de biomasa fue de 25 g/L. Manteniendo esta relación C/N, y sustituyendo la glucosa por lactosa o harina de cebada y la peptona por extracto de levadura, la producción de biomasa se incrementó a 35 g/L. En presencia de harina de cebada la adición al medio de cultivo de sales de Mg y K, y de tiamina, no generó un mayor incremento en la producción de biomasa. La producción de biomasa de G. lucidum se ve favorecida por la presencia en el medio de cultivo de relaciones C/N cercanas a las reportadas conforme a la composición típica de los hongos, así como por la presencia de sustratos complejos como la harina de cebada que le aportan además de la fuente de carbono micronutrientes necesarios para su desarrollo. Palabras clave: harina de cebada, relación C/N, micronutrientes, fuentes de carbono, fuentes de nitrógeno.  AbstractGanoderma lucidum fungus has some biomass components with beneficial health properties. The knowledge about its nutritionals requirements for growing will favor its industrial production at lower cost. In this work, the effect of C/N ratio, the presence of different carbon, nitrogen and micronutrients sources, on fungal biomass

    This paper provides packet scheduler design and performance simulations for running VoIP services over high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) in WCDMA. The main challenge of supporting VoIP service on HSDPA is the tight delay requirement combined with the small VoIP packet size. A packet...... scheduler design incorporating VoIP packet aggregation and user multiplexing is proposed and the VoIP capacity is studied for a macro-cellular environment. Results are obtained for different delay budgets and packet scheduling settings, using either blind round robin or a slightly modified version of...... proportional fair scheduling. For proportional fair scheduling with code-multiplexing of 4-users, the downlink VoIP cell capacity on HSDPA is found to be in the range 72-104 users depending on whether the delay budget for the Node-B scheduling and user reception equals 80 ms or 150 ms, respectively....

    Doyle, Robert P; Nieuwenhuyzen, Mark; Kruger, Paul E

    2005-12-01

    The reaction in water of M(II) ions (M = Cu, 1; Zn, 2; VO, 3) with 2,2'-bipyridine (bipy) followed by Na4P2O7 leads to the formation of three new complexes which feature the pyrophosphate anion, P2O7(4-), as a bridging ligand. Single crystal X-ray diffraction revealed 1 to be {[(bipy)Cu(H2O)(micro-P2O7)Na2(H2O)6] x 4H2O}, and 2 as a tetranuclear Zn(II) complex, {[(bipy)Zn(H2O)(micro-P2O7)Zn(bipy)]2 x 14H2O}. The structure of 1 consists of a mononuclear [(bipy)Cu(H2O)(P2O7)]2- unit that links via a pyrophosphate bridge to two Na atoms. The hydrated six-coordinate Na atoms themselves join together through bridging water molecules to generate a 2D Na-water sheet. The structure of 2 consists of a tetranuclear Zn(II) cluster (dimer-of-dimers) with two pyrophosphate ligands bridging between four metal centres. Adjacent clusters interact through face-to-face pi-pi interactions via the bipy ligands to yield a 2D sheet. Adjacent sheets pack in register to create channels, which are filled by the water molecules of crystallisation. An intricate 2D H-bonded water network separates adjacent sheets and encapsulates the tetranuclear clusters. Aspects of the pyrophosphate coordination modes in 1 and 2 are of structural relevance to those found within the inorganic pyrophosphatases. Compound 3, {[(bipy)(VO)2]2(micro-P2O7)] x 5H2O}, was isolated as an insoluble lime-green powder. Its dinuclear structure was elucidated from elemental and thermal analysis, magnetic susceptibility measurement and IR spectroscopy. The latter displayed characteristic bridging pyrophosphate and signature V=O stretches, which were corroborated by contrast to the IR spectra of 1 and 2 and through comparison with those found in the structurally characterised dinuclear complex, {[(bipy)Cu(H2O)]2(micro-P2O7) x 7H2O}, 4.

  2. Tunable VO2/Au hyperbolic metamaterial

    Prayakarao, S.; Mendoza, B.; Devine, A.; Kyaw, C.; van Dover, R. B.; Liberman, V.; Noginov, M. A.

    2016-08-01

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) is known to have a semiconductor-to-metal phase transition at ˜68 °C. Therefore, it can be used as a tunable component of an active metamaterial. The lamellar metamaterial studied in this work is composed of subwavelength VO2 and Au layers and is designed to undergo a temperature controlled transition from the optical hyperbolic phase to the metallic phase. VO2 films and VO2/Au lamellar metamaterial stacks have been fabricated and studied in electrical conductivity and optical (transmission and reflection) experiments. The observed temperature-dependent changes in the reflection and transmission spectra of the metamaterials and VO2 thin films are in a good qualitative agreement with theoretical predictions. The demonstrated optical hyperbolic-to-metallic phase transition is a unique physical phenomenon with the potential to enable advanced control of light-matter interactions.

    2013-10-01

    Exhausting of world resources, increasing pollution, and climate change are compelling the shift of the world economy from continuous growth to a kind of economy based on integration of technologies into zero emissions production systems. Transition from non-renewable fossil resources to renewable resources provided by solar radiation and the current processes in biosphere is seen in the bio-refinery approach - replacing crude oil refineries by biomass refineries. Biotechnology and nano-technologies are getting accepted as important players along with conventional biomass refinery technologies. Systems design is a significant element in the integration of bio-refinery technologies in clusters. A number of case-studies, steam explosion auto-hydrolysis (SEA) in particular, are reviewed to demonstrate conversion of biomass into value-added chemicals and fuels. Analysis of energy flows is made as part of modelling the SEA processes, the eMergy (energy memory) approach and sustainability indices being applied to assess environmental impacts.

  15. Magnetic Irreversibility in VO2/Ni Bilayers

    de La Venta, Jose; Lauzier, Josh; Sutton, Logan

    The temperature dependence of the coercivity and magnetization of VO2/Ni bilayers was studied. VO2 exhibits a well-known Structural Phase Transition (SPT) at 330-340 K, from a low temperature monoclinic (M) to a high temperature rutile (R) structure. The SPT of VO2 induces an inverse magnetoelastic effect that strongly modifies the coercivity and magnetization of the Ni films. In addition, the growth conditions allow tuning of the magnetic properties. Ni films deposited on top of VO2 (M) show an irreversible change in the coercivity after the first cycle through the high temperature phase, with a corresponding change in the surface morphology of VO2. On the other hand, the Ni films grown on top of VO2 (R) do not show this irreversibility. These results indicate that properties of magnetic films are strongly affected by the strain induced by materials that undergo SPT and that it is possible to control the magnetic properties by tuning the growth conditions.

  16. Vanadium dioxide - Reduced graphene oxide composite as cathode materials for rechargeable Li and Na batteries

    Mahadi, Nurulhuda Binti; Park, Jae-Sang; Park, Jae-Ho; Chung, Kyung Yoon; Yi, Su Youl; Sun, Yang-Kook; Myung, Seung-Taek

    In this study, a metastable form of vanadium dioxide, denoted as VO2(B), has been successfully synthesized under solvothermal condition. However, the as-received VO2(B) suffers from fast capacity fading and poor high-rate performance. In order to overcome these problems, the as-received VO2(B) is solvothermally treated with reduced graphene oxide (rGO) to produce VO2(B)/rGO composite. As a result, the resulting electric conductivity of the VO2(B)/rGO composite is improved to ∼10-4 cm S-1 (from ∼10-7 S cm-1 for the as-received VO2(B)). Electrochemical data of the VO2(B)/rGO composite, tested in both Li and Na cells, shows markedly enhanced electrochemical performance compared to bare VO2(B). The effect of electro-conducting rGO is more evident at high rates.

  17. Scalable architecture for VoIP privacy

    Medvinsky, Alexander

    2001-07-01

    An access network for Voice over IP (VoIP) clients (e.g. DOCSIS-based HFC network) often provides a privacy service. However, such a privacy service is limited only to that access network. When VoIP packets are carried over an open IP network or over a network with some connections to the Internet, it is desirable to provide an end-to-end privacy service where each VoIP packet is encrypted at the source and decrypted at the terminating endpoint. Clearly, public key encryption cannot be applied to each voice packet; the performance would be unacceptable regardless of the choice of a public key algorithm. The only alternative is for the two VoIP endpoints to negotiate a shared symmetric key. Since VoIP connections are established only for duration of a phone call, the end-to-end key negotiation needs to occur during each call setup. And it should not noticeably delay the call setup phase. In order to provide end-to-end privacy, it is not sufficient to encrypt all messages between the two endpoints. It is important that the two endpoints authenticate each other - validate each other's identity. Without authentication an adversary might trick two VoIP clients to negotiate keys with her and then sit in the middle of their conversation and record each VoIP packet, before forwarding it to the intended destination. However, direct authentication of the two VoIP endpoints is not always possible in telephony networks - in particular when caller ID blocking services are enabled. To support such anonymity services, it may be sufficient to authenticate not the identity of the caller but the fact that it is a valid subscriber and that all subsequent signaling and voice traffic will be coming from the same source. The PacketCable specifications provide an example of a VoIP architecture with end-to-end privacy that meets the above stated criteria. This paper describes the PacketCable end-to-end privacy approach and suggests additional mechanisms that may be used to further

  17. Electrochemical catalytic activity of tungsten trioxide- modified graphite felt toward VO2+/VO2+ redox reaction

    A novel graphite felt electrode modified with tungsten trioxide (WO3) was developed to improve the electrochemical performance of graphite felt toward the VO2+/VO2+ redox pair. WO3 was prepared using a hydrothermal method, and the morphology of WO3 structures was investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). The electrochemical property of WO3-modified graphite felt toward VO2+/VO2+ was carefully characterized using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) measurements. The hydrogen-vanadium redox flow battery (H-VRFB) test indicates that single cells using 1.1 mg cm−2 WO3-modified graphite felt exhibited excellent performance at 70 mA cm−2, and the corresponding coulombic, voltage, and energy efficiencies were 99.1%, 88.66% and 87.86%, respectively

  18. Effect of buffer layer on thermochromic performances of VO2 films fabricated by magnetron sputtering

    Zhu, Benqin; Tao, Haizheng; Zhao, Xiujian

    2016-03-01

    As a well-developed industrial fabricating method, magnetron sputtering technique has its distinct advantages for the large-scale production. In order to investigate the effect of buffer layer on the formation and thermochromic performances of VO2 films, using RF magnetron sputtering method, we fabricated three kinds of buffer layers SiO2, TiO2 and SnO2 on soda lime float-glass. Then according to the reactive DC magnetron sputtering method, VO2 films were deposited. Due to the restriction of heat treatment temperature when using soda lime float-glass as substrates, dense rutile phase TiO2 cannot be formed, leading to the formation of vanadium oxide compounds containing Na ions. When using SnO2 as buffer layer, we found that relatively high pure VO2 can be deposited more easily. In addition, compared with the effect of SiO2 buffer layer, we observed an enhanced visible transparency, a decreased infrared emissivity, which should be mainly originated from the modified morphology and/or the hetero-structured VO2/SnO2 interface.

  2. Polycrystalline VO2 thin films via femtosecond laser processing of amorphous VO x

    Charipar, N. A.; Kim, H.; Breckenfeld, E.; Charipar, K. M.; Mathews, S. A.; Piqué, A.

    2016-05-01

    Femtosecond laser processing of pulsed laser-deposited amorphous vanadium oxide thin films was investigated. Polycrystalline VO2 thin films were achieved by femtosecond laser processing in air at room temperature. The electrical transport properties, crystal structure, surface morphology, and optical properties were characterized. The laser-processed films exhibited a metal-insulator phase transition characteristic of VO2, thus presenting a pathway for the growth of crystalline vanadium dioxide films on low-temperature substrates.

  3. Using VoIP to compete.

    Werbach, Kevin

    2005-09-01

    Internet telephony, or VoIP, is rapidly replacing the conventional kind. This year, for the first time, U.S. companies bought more new Internet-phone connections than standard lines. The major driver behind this change is cost. But VoIP isn't just a new technology for making old-fashioned calls cheaper, says consultant Kevin Werbach. It is fundamentally changing how companies use voice communications. What makes VoIP so powerful is that it turns voice into digital data packets that can be stored, copied, combined with other data, and distributed to virtually any device that connects to the Internet. And it makes it simple to provide all the functionality of a corporate phone-call features, directories, security-to anyone anywhere there's broadband access. That fosters new kinds of businesses such as virtual call centers, where widely dispersed agents work at all hours from their homes. The most successful early adopters, says Werbach, will focus more on achieving business objectives than on saving money. They will also consider how to push VoIP capabilities out to the extended organization, making use of everyone as a resource. Deployment may be incremental, but companies should be thinking about where VoIP could take them. Executives should ask what they could do if, on demand, they could bring all their employees, customers, suppliers, and partners together in a virtual room, with shared access to every modern communications and computing channel. They should take a fresh look at their business processes to find points at which richer and more customizable communications could eliminate bottlenecks and enhance quality. The important dividing line won't be between those who deploy Vol P and those who don't, or even between early adopters and laggards. It will be between those who see Vol P as just a new way to do the same old things and those who use itto rethink their entire businesses. PMID:16171218

  5. Euro-VO - Coordination of Virtual Observatory activities in Europe

    Genova, Francoise; Arviset, Christophe; Lawrence, Andy; Pasian, Fabio; Solano, Enrique; Wambsganss, Joachim

    2015-01-01

    The European Virtual Observatory Euro-VO has been coordinating European VO activities through a series of projects co-funded by the European Commission over the last 15 years. The bulk of VO work in Europe is ensured by the national VO initiatives and those of intergovernmental agencies. VO activities at the European level coordinate the work in support of the three "pillars" of the Virtual Observatory: support to the scientific community, take-up by the data providers, and technological activities. Several Euro-VO projects have also provided direct support to selected developments and prototyping. This paper explains the methodology used by Euro-VO over the years. It summarizes the activities which were performed and their evolutions at different stages of the development of the VO, explains the Euro-VO role with respect to the international and national levels of VO activities, details the lessons learnt for best practices for the coordination of the VO building blocks, and the liaison with other European i...

  6. Epitaxial stabilization and phase instability of VO2 polymorphs.

    Lee, Shinbuhm; Ivanov, Ilia N; Keum, Jong K; Lee, Ho Nyung

    2016-01-01

    The VO2 polymorphs, i.e., VO2(A), VO2(B), VO2(M1) and VO2(R), have a wide spectrum of functionalities useful for many potential applications in information and energy technologies. However, synthesis of phase pure materials, especially in thin film forms, has been a challenging task due to the fact that the VO2 polymorphs are closely related to each other in a thermodynamic framework. Here, we report epitaxial stabilization of the VO2 polymorphs to synthesize high quality single crystalline thin films and study the phase stability of these metastable materials. We selectively deposit all the phases on various perovskite substrates with different crystallographic orientations. By investigating the phase instability, phonon modes and transport behaviours, not only do we find distinctively contrasting physical properties of the VO2 polymorphs, but that the polymorphs can be on the verge of phase transitions when heated as low as ~400 °C. Our successful epitaxy of both VO2(A) and VO2(B) phases, which are rarely studied due to the lack of phase pure materials, will open the door to the fundamental studies of VO2 polymorphs for potential applications in advanced electronic and energy devices.

  7. Electrical oscillation in Pt/VO2 bilayer strips

    We report on the observation of stable electrical oscillation in Pt/vanadium dioxide (VO2) bilayer strips, in which the Pt overlayer serves the dual purposes of heating up the VO2 and weakening the electric field in the VO2 layer. Systematic measurements in an ultrahigh vacuum nanoprobe system show that the oscillation frequency increases with the bias current and/or with decreasing device dimension. In contrast to most VO2-based oscillators reported to date, which are electrically triggered, current-induced Joule heating in the Pt overlayer is found to play a dominant role in the generation of oscillation in Pt/VO2 bilayers. A simple model involving thermally triggered transition of VO2 on a heat sink is able to account for the experimental observations. The results in this work provide an alternative view of the triggering mechanism in VO2-based oscillators

    Molinaro, Marco; Cepparo, Francesco; De Marco, Marco; Knapic, Cristina; Apollo, Pietro; Smareglia, Riccardo

    2014-07-01

    The International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA) has produced many standards and recommendations whose aim is to generate an architecture that starts from astrophysical resources, in a general sense, and ends up in deployed consumable services (that are themselves astrophysical resources). Focusing on the Data Access Layer (DAL) system architecture, that these standards define, in the last years a web based application has been developed and maintained at INAF-OATs IA2 (Italian National institute for Astrophysics - Astronomical Observatory of Trieste, Italian center of Astronomical Archives) to try to deploy and manage multiple VO (Virtual Observatory) services in a uniform way: VO-Dance. However a set of criticalities have arisen since when the VO-Dance idea has been produced, plus some major changes underwent and are undergoing at the IVOA DAL layer (and related standards): this urged IA2 to identify a new solution for its own service layer. Keeping on the basic ideas from VO-Dance (simple service configuration, service instantiation at call time and modularity) while switching to different software technologies (e.g. dismissing Java Reflection in favour of Enterprise Java Bean, EJB, based solution), the new solution has been sketched out and tested for feasibility. Here we present the results originating from this test study. The main constraints for this new project come from various fields. A better homogenized solution rising from IVOA DAL standards: for example the new DALI (Data Access Layer Interface) specification that acts as a common interface system for previous and oncoming access protocols. The need for a modular system where each component is based upon a single VO specification allowing services to rely on common capabilities instead of homogenizing them inside service components directly. The search for a scalable system that takes advantage from distributed systems. The constraints find answer in the adopted solutions hereafter sketched. The

  14. Patterning of epitaxial VO2 microstructures by a high-temperature lift-off process

    The growing field of oxide-electronics demands adequate fabrication methods that do not impair the material’s beneficial properties. To this end, we present a modified lift-off lithography method replacing the conventional polymer mask with an AlOx based mask. It can sustain the high-temperature and reactive gasses conditions commonly needed for oxide deposition, and is effectively wet-etched in dilute NaOH solutions. Here we demonstrate patterning of VO2 films. With its metal–insulator transition (MIT) near room temperature, it is attractive for various applications including sensors and transistors. But patterning is challenging since its properties are very sensitive to fabrication processes. We demonstrate patterning of 3 μm wide VO2 electrodes and show they preserve the MIT magnitude and epitaxial growth of the non-patterned films. Some thinning of the VO2 is also observed. This process can be useful for patterning other materials that require harsh deposition conditions, and are resilient to low NaOH concentrations. (paper)

The physical and chemical properties of as-prepared samples were characterized based upon XRD, XPS, BET, SEM, EDS, TEM, UV–vis DRS and fluorescence spectrum techniques. The TEM images showed a clear interface between BiVO{sub 4} and FeVO{sub 4}, indicating that a heterojunction between BiVO{sub 4} and FeVO{sub 4} was formed during the hydrothermal reaction. In addition, the photodegradation activity of metronidazole (MNZ) was used as a measurement for photocatalytic performance of BiVO{sub 4}, FeVO{sub 4} and BiVO{sub 4}/FeVO{sub 4} heterojunction photocatalyst. It indicated that under visible light irradiation the photocatalytic activity of BiVO{sub 4}/FeVO{sub 4} heterojunction photocatalyst was very effective, and moreover, much higher than the single BiVO{sub 4} or single FeVO{sub 4}. The possible photocatalytic mechanism has been discussed on the basis of the theoretical calculation of the electronic structure, and the experimental results.

    Mazurczyk, Wojciech

    2008-01-01

    In this paper, we circumscribe available steganographic techniques that can be used for creating covert channels for VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) streams. Apart from characterizing existing steganographic methods we provide new insights by presenting two new techniques. First one is network steganography solution and exploits free/unused fields of the RTCP (Real-Time Control Protocol) and RTP (Real-Time Transport Protocol) protocols. The second method provides hybrid storage-timing covert channel by utilizing delayed audio packets. The results of the experiment, that was performed, regardless of steganalysis, to estimate a total amount of data that can be covertly transferred in VoIP RTP stream during the typical call, are also included in this article.

  1. Simulink based VoIP Analysis

    Singh, Hardeep; Mian, M

    2010-01-01

    Voice communication over internet not be possible without a reliable data network, this was first available when distributed network topologies were used in conjunction with data packets. Early network used single centre node network in which a single workstation (Server) is responsible for the communication. This posed problems as if there was a fault with the centre node, (workstation) nothing would work. This problem was solved by the distributed system in which reliability increases by spreading the load between many nodes. The idea of packet switching & distributed network were combined, this combination were increased reliability, speed & responsible for voice communication over internet, Voice-over-IP (VoIP)These data packets travel through a packet-switched network such as the Internet and arrive at their destination where they are decompressed using a compatible Codec (audio coder/decoder) and converted back to analogue audio. This paper deals with the Simulink architecture for VoIP network.

    A Low temperature method for synthesizing triclinic FeVO4 nanoparticles is manifested through co-precipitation method. Three precursor materials taken for the synthesis are Iron Nitrate, Ammonium Metavanadate and NaOH along with DI water. The attained precipitate was dried at 100°C for overnight and calcined at different temperatures ranging from 400°C - 650°C. The achieved powdered materials are studied through X - ray diffraction and found to be in pure single phase of P-1 space group symmetry. The crystallite size measured through Scherrer's method is in found to be in the range of 40-60 nm. Raman spectroscopic studies were carried out at room temperature. Raman spectra is in agreement with the reported structural data of FeVO4.

  5. Lattice relaxation and ferromagnetic character of (LaVO3) m/SrVO3superlattices

    Schuster, Cosima B.

    2013-08-01

    The experimental observation that vanadate superlattices (LaVO 3)m/SrVO3 show ferromagnetism up to room temperature (Lüders U. et al., Phys. Rev. B, 80 (2009) 241102(R)) is investigated by means of density functional theory, and the band structure for m = 5 and 6 is calculated. A buckling of the interface VO2 layers is found in both cases, but subtle differences in bond length lead to very different properties for even and odd values of m: in the even case, the two interface VO2 layers effectively decouple from the adjacent LaO layers due to a strong bond length enhancement. This results into a local inversion of the orbital occupancy and to the confinement of the charge carriers. In the odd case, the amplitude of the bond length variation is smaller, so that the charge carriers spill into the deeper-lying VO2 layers, and spin-polarised interfaces are obtained. © Copyright EPLA, 2013.

  7. Revisión sobre la corrosión de tubos sobrecalentadores en plantas de biomasa

    Berlanga-Labari, C.

    2006-08-01

    Full Text Available The design of new biomass-fired power plants with increased steam temperature raises concerns of high-temperature corrosion. The high potassium and chlorine contents in many biomasses, specially in wheat straw, are potentially harmful elements with regard to corrosion. Chlorine may cause accelerated corrosion resulting in increased oxidation, metal wastage, internal attack, void formations, and loose non-adherent scales. The most severe corrosion problems in biomass-fired systems are expected to occur due to Cl-rich deposits formed on superheater tubes. In the first part of this revision the corrosion mechanism proposed are described in function of the conditions and compounds involved. The second part is focused on the behaviour of the materials tested so far in the boiler and in the laboratory. First the traditional commercial alloys are studied and secondly the new alloys and the coatings

    En el diseño de plantas de biomasa es muy importante tener en cuenta la temperatura del vapor para no tener problemas de corrosión. Esto, es debido al alto contenido de potasio y cloro que tienen la mayoría de los biocombustibles y, en especial, la paja de cereal. El objetivo de esta revisión es condensar el conocimiento actual sobre la corrosión de los sobrecalentadores a altas temperaturas provocada por compuestos clorados en plantas de biomasa. El cloro puede causar corrosión acelerada debido a la pérdida de metal del sobrecalentador, ataque interno y formación de capas de óxidos no adherentes. Los problemas de corrosión más severos en una caldera de biomasa se producen en los depósitos formados sobre los tubos sobrecalentadores. En la primera parte de esta revisión, se describen los mecanismos de corrosión propuestos en función de las condiciones de trabajo predominantes en la caldera. La segunda parte, se centra en revisar los estudios realizados para comprobar el comportamiento de los materiales mediante ensayos realizados en la

  8. Cloudspace: virtual environments in the VO

    Graham, M. J.; Williams, R. D.

    2008-08-01

    The grid community is moving towards providing on-demand computing in the form of virtual workspaces - abstracted execution environments that are dynamically made available to authorized clients. In part this is a reaction to market forces represented by such commercial initiatives as Amazon EC2 and in part a solution to hot service deployment. One danger, though, is that a multiplicity of implementations will lead to a lack of interoperability. Such a concern in the VO regarding distributed data storage led to the development of VOSpace, a lightweight abstraction layer that sits on top of existing storage solutions such as SRB. In this paper, we introduce Cloudspace, a resource-oriented extension of VOSpace, that incorporates UWS, the VO pattern for managing asynchronous services, to form a natural habitat for virtual environments in the VO. A notable feature of the Cloudspace concept is that distributed data and computing can be managed seamlessly through a single mechanism thus making the astronomer's life easier as we move into a new era of sophisticated computational astronomy.

  10. What are suspicious VoIP delays?

    Mazurczyk, Wojciech; Szczypiorski, Krzysztof

    2010-01-01

    Voice over IP (VoIP) is unquestionably the most popular real-time service in IP networks today. Recent studies have shown that it is also a suitable carrier for information hiding. Hidden communication may pose security concerns as it can lead to confidential information leakage. In VoIP, RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) in particular, which provides the means for the successful transport of voice packets through IP networks, is suitable for steganographic purposes. It is characterised by a high packet rate compared to other protocols used in IP telephony, resulting in a potentially high steganographic bandwidth. The modification of an RTP packet stream provides many opportunities for hidden communication as the packets may be delayed, reordered or intentionally lost. In this paper, to enable the detection of steganographic exchanges in VoIP, we examined real RTP traffic traces to answer the questions, what do the "normal" delays in RTP packet streams look like? and, is it possible to detect the use of know...

  12. Urchin-like m-LaVO4 and m-LaVO4/Ag microspheres: Synthesis and characterization

    The semiconductor nanostructures decorated with noble metals have attracted increasing attention due to their interesting physical and chemical properties. In this work, urchin-like monoclinic (m-) LaVO4 microspheres were prepared by a hydrothermal method and used as a template to fabricate Ag nanoparticle-decorated m-LaVO4 composites. The morphology and structure were characterized by transmission electron microscope, high-resolution transmission electron microscope, scanning electron microscope, and energy-dispersive X-ray. It was found that Ag nanoparticles with narrow size distribution were uniformly loaded on urchin-like m-LaVO4 microspheres, and the resulted composite microspheres showed distinct surface plasmon absorption band compared to pure m-LaVO4 microspheres. Photocatalytic activities of as-prepared samples were examined by studying the degradation of methyl orange solutions under visible-light irradiation (> 400 nm). Results clearly showed that urchin-like m-LaVO4/Ag microspheres possess much higher photocatalytic activity than pure m-LaVO4 microspheres and P25. - Highlights: • m-LaVO4/Ag composites microspheres were fabricated by a hydrothermal method. • m-LaVO4 microspheres show higher photocatalytic activity than m-LaVO4 microspheres. • m-LaVO4/Ag microspheres exhibit a good stability

    2008-11-01

    With the wide application of VoIP, many problems have occurred. One of the problems is security. The problems with securing VoIP systems, insufficient standardization and lack of security mechanisms emerged the need for new approaches and solutions. In this paper, we propose a new security architecture for VoIP which is based on digital watermarking which is a new, flexible and powerful technology that is increasingly gaining more and more attentions. Besides known applications e.g. to solve copyright protection problems, we propose to use digital watermarking to secure not only transmitted audio but also signaling protocol that VoIP is based on.

  8. The Effect of Habitual Smoking on VO2max

    Wier, Larry T.; Suminski, Richard R.; Poston, Walker S.; Randles, Anthony M.; Arenare, Brian; Jackson, Andrew S.

    2008-01-01

    VO2max is associated with many factors, including age, gender, physical activity, and body composition. It is popularly believed that habitual smoking lowers aerobic fitness. PURPOSE: to determine the effect of habitual smoking on VO2max after controlling for age, gender, activity and BMI. METHODS: 2374 men and 375 women employed at the NASA/Johnson Space Center were measured for VO2max by indirect calorimetry (RER>=1.1), activity by the 11 point (0-10) NASA Physical Activity Status Scale (PASS), BMI and smoking pack-yrs (packs day*y of smoking). Age was recorded in years and gender was coded as M=1, W=0. Pack.y was made a categorical variable consisting of four levels as follows: Never Smoked (0), Light (1-10), Regular (11-20), Heavy (>20). Group differences were verified by ANOVA. A General Linear Models (GLM) was used to develop two models to examine the relationship of smoking behavior on VO2max. GLM #1(without smoking) determined the combined effects of age, gender, PASS and BMI on VO2max. GLM #2 (with smoking) determined the added effects of smoking (pack.y groupings) on VO2max after controlling for age, gender, PASS and BMI. Constant errors (CE) were calculated to compare the accuracy of the two models for estimating the VO2max of the smoking subgroups. RESULTS: ANOVA affirmed the mean VO2max of each pack.y grouping decreased significantly (pBMI were independently related with VO2max (R2 = 0.642, SEE = 4.90, pBMI the effect of habitual smoking on reducing VO2max is minimal, about 0.85 ml/kg/min, until the habit exceeds 20 pack.y at which point an additional decrease of 1.71 ml/kg/min is noted. Adding pack.y data improves the accuracy of predicting the VO2max of smokers.

    2000-01-01

    VoIP (Voice over IP) is a rapidly growing area with great market potential. To promote it for both commercial and research purposes, a prototype VoIP system based on state-of-the-art Motorola communication techniques has been developed. It is a gateway system integrating a PBX and a VoIP module. All com ponents that H.323 defines to support VoIP are implemented in the VoIP module, though in a simplified manner. As an embedded system, the system features real timeness and task distributiveness. A number of additional techniques are used to improve the performance, including noise suppression, zero copy, and buffer structure optimization. When refined in interoperability, the system will also readily serve as a product.

    A vanadium dioxide (VO2) thin film was fabricated on a ZnO doped with Al (AZO) conductive glass by magnetron sputtering at room temperature followed by annealing under air atmosphere. The microstructures and optical properties of the thin film were studied. The results showed that the VO2/AZO composite film was poly-crystalline and the AZO layer did not change the preferred growth orientation of VO2. Compared to the VO2 film fabricated on soda-lime glass substrate through the same process and condition, the phase transition temperature of the VO2/AZO composite film was decreased by about 25 °C, thermal hysteresis width narrowed to 6 °C, the visible light transmittance was over 50%, the infrared transmittances before and after phase transition were 21% and 55%, respectively at 1500 nm.

  20. Fabrication of VO2-based multilayer structure with variable emittance

    Highlights: • Multilayer structures consisted of VO2 layer, HfO2 layer and Ag layer. • Influence of VO2 and HfO2 layer thickness on the emittance variability was studied. • Emittance variation of 0.55 and transition temperature (Tc) of 58 °C was obtained. • Multilayer structures with W-doped VO2 film were deposited. • Influence of W doping concentration on emittance variability was investigated. - Abstract: VO2 film holds promise for smart radiation device (SRD) use because of its infrared reflection change through the semiconductor-to-metal transition (SMT). In present study, a multilayer structure which consisted of VO2 layer, HfO2 layer and Ag layer was fabricated to achieve variable emittance based on the principle of reflection filter and SMT of VO2. It was found that with optimal 50 nm-thick VO2 layer, emittance of the multilayer structure could reversibly change from 0.13 at 30 °C to 0.68 at 80 °C with emittance variability of 0.55. Emittance hysteresis loop with transition temperature (Tc) of 58 °C and narrow width of 4 °C was obtained. Finally, multilayer structures with W-doped VO2 films were deposited and transition temperature decreased from 58 to 5 °C as W doping concentration increased from 0% to 3%, with Tc decreasing efficiency of −17.2 °C/at%. However, W doping also led to increased low temperature infrared absorption of VO2 film, which resulted in decreased emittance variability for the multilayer structure, from 0.55 to 0.37 as the W doping concentration in VO2 layer increase from 0% to 3%

  5. Reactive evaporation of anomalous blue VO2

    Thin films of vanadium dioxide exhibit a thermally induced semiconductor-to-metal phase transition near 670 C. In most deposition conditions, the transition is accompanied by large changes in optical properties at infrared wavelengths, but with only slight visible contrast. Recently, reactive evaporation at high temperatures and in stringent process conditions of so-called blue VO2 has been reported [G. A. Nyberg and R. A. Buhrman, J. Vac. Sci. Technol. A 2, 301 (1984)]. These films exhibit a striking blue-to-red transition in transmitted light. In this paper, a new technique for thin-film growth of anomalous vanadium dioxide will be presented. The primary steps in the process are the reactive evaporation of vanadium oxide at ambient temperature followed by anneal in flowing oxygen. Optical and microstructural data for material deposited on sapphire and fused quartz substrates will be compared to standard vanadium oxide

    Grądkowska, Magdalena; Popiel, Piotr; Sobańska, Katarzyna

    2006-10-01

    VoIP is a fast-developing technology which allows making telephone calls using a data network like the Internet. VoIP converts the voice signal from the telephone into a digital signal that travels over the Internet and then converts it back at the other end so that speaking to anyone with a regular phone number is possible. VoIP may also enable the direct calls from a computer with the use of a conventional telephone or a microphone. Some services using VoIP may only allow you to call other people using the same VoIP service, but others may allow you to call anyone who has a telephone number. First condition is a broadband Internet connection for VoIP technology to work. There are two major advantages of VOIP: lower cost and increased functionality. In the paper the integration of two networks, one with a CCME based installation and the other with a full Asterisk/SIP voicemail deployment is presented. The goal was to allow dialing between VoIP's telephony from different networks and evaluate a quality of connection with the use of certain codecs.

  16. Audio CAPTCHA for SIP-Based VoIP

    Soupionis, Yannis; Tountas, George; Gritzalis, Dimitris

    Voice over IP (VoIP) introduces new ways of communication, while utilizing existing data networks to provide inexpensive voice communications worldwide as a promising alternative to the traditional PSTN telephony. SPam over Internet Telephony (SPIT) is one potential source of future annoyance in VoIP. A common way to launch a SPIT attack is the use of an automated procedure (bot), which generates calls and produces audio advertisements. In this paper, our goal is to design appropriate CAPTCHA to fight such bots. We focus on and develop audio CAPTCHA, as the audio format is more suitable for VoIP environments and we implement it in a SIP-based VoIP environment. Furthermore, we suggest and evaluate the specific attributes that audio CAPTCHA should incorporate in order to be effective, and test it against an open source bot implementation.

    2015-06-01

    In this paper, carbon-doped monoclinic scheelite mesoporous bismuth vanadate was synthesized through template-engaged in situ method. The bismuth nitrate pentahydrate and ammonia metavanadate were used as bismuth and vanadium precursors, respectively, glucose as carbon source, and mesoporous SiO2 aerogel as a hard template. Carbon-doped monoclinic mesoporous BiVO4 were obtained by heat treatment of BiVO4/glucose/template to carbonize glucose and form monoclinic crystal, followed by etching with NaOH solution to remove the SiO2 template. The samples were characterized by x-ray diffraction, N2 adsorption and desorption, UV-visible spectroscopy, Energy dispersive spectrometry, Raman spectroscopy, and Transmission electron microscopy. It was found that the sample with a carbon content of 0.5 wt.% possesses a specific surface area of 10.2 m2/g and has mesoporous structure with the most probable pore size of 13.9 nm. The band gap of carbon-doped monoclinic mesoporous BiVO4 was estimated to be 2.33 eV, indicating the superior photocatalytic activity under visible light. The photocatalytic efficiency of carbon-doped monoclinic mesoporous BiVO4 for the degradation of Rhodamine B under visible light (λ > 400 nm) in 120 min reaches 98.7%, Besides, the carbon-doped monoclinic mesoporous BiVO4 photocatalyst still showed high stability: 85% for Rhodamine B degradation after ten recycles.

  20. Two-dimensional VO2 photonic crystal selective emitter

    The design and simulation of a two-dimensional (2D) photonic crystal (PhC) selective emitter made of vanadium dioxide (VO2), a type metal oxide with a high temperature resistance, are reported. Spectral emission characteristics of the 2D VO2 PhCs were investigated using the finite difference time domain (FDTD) method. The PhC consists of a periodic array of cylindrical air microcavities. The influences of the geometric characteristic parameters are discussed. The influences of the radius and depth on the emission of the 2D VO2 PhC can be explained based on the coupled-mode theory. The emissivities at wavelengths below the cut-off wavelength were enhanced by increasing the depth. When the depth was much larger than the radius, the cut-off wavelength increased with the radius. The effect of the period on the emissivity at wavelengths less than the period was highly influenced by the diffraction modes. The designed 2D VO2 PhC emitter exhibited a selective emission that was well-matched with InGaAs cells. The spectral emissivities within the convertible wavelength range of the InGaAs cells reached 0.95, and the emissivities for non-convertible wavelengths were less than 0.3. - Highlights: • The lattice structure of metal phase VO2 does not change with temperature. • The influences of scales on the emission of a 2D VO2 PhC are discussed. • A 2D VO2 photonic crystal emitter matched well with InGaAs cell is designed. • The matched VO2 PhC emitter can highly improve the TPV system efficiency

  8. The Euro-VO Registry, Re-engineering the Back-end

    Arviset, C.; Perdikeas, M.; Osuna, P.; Gonzalez, J.

    2015-09-01

    The Euro-VO Registry, located, developed and operated at ESAC, is one of the full searchable registries available worldwide, gathering information about all VO-compliant resources. The Euro-VO Registry serves as a registration point for European - and other countries- VO actors and data centres wishing to publish VO services. It harvests other registries to ensure its completeness so VO applications developers and VO users can use it to discover all VO resources, from Europe and from all other VO projects. The Euro-VO Registry provides as well a harvesting interface to other registries in the world to make sure the European VO services are also included in all other worldwide full registries. In particular, the new Euro-VO registry will be supporting the new RegTAP search interface for the relational registry allowing arbitrary ADQL queries against its contents over a compliant TAP service. The recently obsolete (for future developments) SOAP-based legacy search interface will also be supported for backwards compatibility purposes. Furthermore, in the context of the IVOA, some quality control and curation procedures for the registry resources are being defined. The Euro-VO Registry implements these procedures to ensure the high quality of the VO resources it references. This paper gives an overview of the recent development of the new Euro-VO Registry, together with its new curation facilities, both of which are being performed under a contract awarded to Neuropublic, under ESA special initiative to Greece.

  9. The preparation of a plasmonically resonant VO2 thermochromic pigment

    Bai, Huaping; Cortie, Michael B.; Maaroof, Abbas I.; Dowd, Annette; Kealley, Catherine; Smith, Geoffrey B.

    2009-02-01

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) undergoes a reversible metal-insulator transition, normally at ~68 °C. While the properties of continuous semi-transparent coatings of VO2 are well known, there is far less information available concerning the potential use of discrete VO2 nanoparticles as a thermochromic pigment in opaque coatings. Individual VO2 nanoparticles undergo a localized plasmon resonance with near-infrared light at about 1100 nm and this resonance can be switched on and off by simply varying the temperature of the system. Therefore, incorporation of VO2 nanoparticles into a coating system imbues the coating with the ability to self-adaptively modulate its own absorptive efficiency in the near-infrared. Here we examine the magnitude and control of this phenomenon. Prototype coatings are described, made using VO2 powder produced by an improved process. The materials are characterized using calorimetry, x-ray diffraction, high-resolution scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and by measurement of optical properties.

  10. The preparation of a plasmonically resonant VO2 thermochromic pigment

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) undergoes a reversible metal-insulator transition, normally at ∼68 0C. While the properties of continuous semi-transparent coatings of VO2 are well known, there is far less information available concerning the potential use of discrete VO2 nanoparticles as a thermochromic pigment in opaque coatings. Individual VO2 nanoparticles undergo a localized plasmon resonance with near-infrared light at about 1100 nm and this resonance can be switched on and off by simply varying the temperature of the system.

  11. Fair Scheduling for Delay-Sensitive VoIP Traffic

    Ahmed, Shawish; Jiang, Xiaohong; Horiguchi, Susumu

    With the wide expansion of voice services over the IP networks (VoIP), the volume of this delay sensitive traffic is steadily growing. The current packet schedulers for IP networks meet the delay constraint of VoIP traffic by simply assigning its packets the highest priority. This technique is acceptable as long as the amount of VoIP traffic is relatively very small compared to other non-voice traffic. With the notable expansion of VoIP applications, however, the current packet schedulers will significantly sacrifice the fairness deserved by the non-voice traffic. In this paper, we extend the conventional Deficit Round-Robin (DRR) scheduler by including a packet classifier, a Token Bucket and a resource reservation scheme and propose an integrated packet scheduler architecture for the growing VoIP traffic. We demonstrate through both theoretical analysis and extensive simulation that the new architecture makes it possible for us to significantly improve the fairness to non-voice traffic while still meeting the tight delay requirement of VoIP applications.

  12. Audio Codecs in VoIPv6: A Performance Analysis

    Monjur Ahmed

    2014-04-01

    Full Text Available Audio communications in IP based networks have been revolutionized by the introduction of VoIP applications. High cost-efficiency has made VoIP to be the communication means in today’s world; and this trend is anticipated to be continued on an ongoing basis. The performance of VoIP significantly depends on the efficiency of the audio codecs used in any communication scenario which make the study on the performance issues of audio codecs in VoIP applications worth investigating. IPv6 is the new version of IP, which will gradually replace the current IPv4 as the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 is already in place. This demands the scrutiny of the audio codecs being used in IPv4 to be tested for their compatibility in IPv6 in terms of desired performance. This paper presents the study on the performance of selected audio codecs that are widely used in VoIPv4. G.711, G.729A and G.723.1 codecs were chosen for the study in VoIPv6 based scenarios presented in this paper. The selected audio codecs were applied in IPv6 based voice communication network scenarios to determine their performance efficiency by observing various QoS parameters. The study was done by means of simulation using OPNET.

  3. Estudio de la oxidación a elevada temperatura de ocho aleaciones en atmósferas de combustión de biomasa

    Berlanga-Labari, C.

    2008-08-01

    Full Text Available The combustion of biomass, especially wheat straw, generates very corrosive media particularly near the superheater tubes. Chlorine is known to be the main corrosive agent in biomass-fired plants. This paper focuses on the study of the corrosivity of such environments composed of gases and ashes, at high temperature, on eight commercial alloys with different chromium and nickel contents. These have been: AISI 347 CG (1.4550, AISI 347 FG(1.4550, AISI 316LN (1.4910, ESSHETE 1250 (1.4982, AC 66 (1.4877, X20CrMoV12:1 (1.4922 and AISI 347 coated with Inconel 625 and Inconel 686. Corrosion tests in the boiler have been performed during 8.000 h and 15.000 h at temperatures between 500 °C y 550 °C in the biomass plant of Sangüesa (Navarra, Spain. Experimental results showed an unacceptable behaviour far the martensitic steel, acceptable far the austenitics and good far the inconels. The appearance of the corrosion attack was also investigated to obtain understanding of the corrosion mechanism. The corrosion mechanism by molten salts has been rejected. The active oxidation corrosion mechanism has been proposed as the most probable in order to interpretate the corrosion behaviour of these materials in these environments.

  14. VO-Dance an IVOA tools to easy publish data into VO and it's extension on planetology request

    Smareglia, R.; Capria, M. T.; Molinaro, M.

    2012-09-01

    Data publishing through the self standing portals can be joined to VO resource publishing, i.e. astronomical resources deployed through VO compliant services. Since the IVOA (International Virtual Observatory Alliance) provides many protocols and standards for the various data flavors (images, spectra, catalogues … ), and since the data center has as a goal to grow up in number of hosted archives and services providing, the idea arose to find a way to easily deploy and maintain VO resources. VO-Dance is a java web application developed at IA2 that addresses this idea creating, in a dynamical way, VO resources out of database tables or views. It is structured to be potentially DBMS and platform independent and consists of 3 main tokens, an internal DB to store resources description and model metadata information, a restful web application to deploy the resources to the VO community. It's extension to planetology request is under study to best effort INAF software development and archive efficiency.

    SPLAT-VO is a powerful graphical tool for displaying, comparing, modifying and analyzing astronomical spectra, as well as searching and retrieving spectra from services around the world using Virtual Observatory (VO) protocols and services. The development of SPLAT-VO started in 1999, as part of the Starlink StarJava initiative, sometime before that of the VO, so initial support for the VO was necessarily added once VO standards and services became available. Further developments were supported by the Joint Astronomy Centre, Hawaii until 2009. Since end of 2011 development of SPLAT-VO has been continued by the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory, and the Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. From this time several new features have been added, including support for the latest VO protocols, along with new visualization and spectra storing capabilities. This paper presents the history of SPLAT-VO, it's capabilities, recent additions and future plans, as well as a discussi...

  20. Electronic structure and insulating gap in epitaxial VO2 polymorphs

    Shinbuhm Lee

    2015-12-01

    Full Text Available Determining the origin of the insulating gap in the monoclinic V O2(M1 is a long-standing issue. The difficulty of this study arises from the simultaneous occurrence of structural and electronic transitions upon thermal cycling. Here, we compare the electronic structure of the M1 phase with that of single crystalline insulating V O2(A and V O2(B thin films to better understand the insulating phase of VO2. As these A and B phases do not undergo a structural transition upon thermal cycling, we comparatively study the origin of the gap opening in the insulating VO2 phases. By x-ray absorption and optical spectroscopy, we find that the shift of unoccupied t2g orbitals away from the Fermi level is a common feature, which plays an important role for the insulating behavior in VO2 polymorphs. The distinct splitting of the half-filled t2g orbital is observed only in the M1 phase, widening the bandgap up to ∼0.6 eV. Our approach of comparing all three insulating VO2 phases provides insight into a better understanding of the electronic structure and the origin of the insulating gap in VO2.

  1. Thermochromic characteristics of Ti-doped VO2 thin film

    Lee, Hwasoo; Ko, Kyung Hyun; Choi, Jun Oh

    2014-03-01

    Utilizing metal-to-insulator transition (MIT) properties of V-oxide film, stable VO2 phase is necessary. In sputtering deposition of VO2, simple target preparation and high deposition rate are recommendable. For this, VO2 film was deposited on quartz substrate by RF magnetron sputter system under low working pressure using V2O5 target. Due to the lower sputtering yield of oxygen compared to vanadium, oxygen ion contents is usually deficient from that of target. So, the reduction of V ions was a result of charge compensation with the oxygen ions. Under lower working pressure, deposition rate become higher so that this deficiency is getting larger to cause further reduction to destabilize VO2. Preventing this, titanium oxide co-deposition was suggested to enrich oxygen source. When TiO2 was used, Ti ion has stable +4 charge state so that extra oxygen sputtered prevents V ion reduction below +4 state. But, in case of TiO, Ti ions were oxidized from +2 to +3 and +4 state and V ions with less oxidation potential should be reduced to +3 or so. Pure VO2 film had MIT at 66°C and large resistivity ratio of 4 orders of magnitude from 30°C to 90°C. Under low working pressure, (V2O5 + TiO2) system yield fairly good films, while films with poor or absence of MIT were produced with TiO case.

  2. Proposal of Secure VoIP System Using Attribute Certificate

    Kim, Jin-Mook; Jeong, Young-Ae; Hong, Seong-Sik

    VoIP is a service that changes the analogue audio signal into a digital signal and then transfers the audio information to the users after configuring it as a packet; and it has an advantage of lower price than the existing voice call service and better extensibility. However, VoIP service has a system structure that, compared to the existing PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network), has poor call quality and is vulnerable in the security aspect. To make up these problems, TLS service was introduced to enhance the security. In practical system, however, since QoS problem occurs, it is necessary to develop the VoIP security system that can satisfy QoS at the same time in the security aspect. In this paper, a user authentication VoIP system that can provide a service according to the security and the user through providing a differential service according to the approach of the users by adding AA server at the step of configuring the existing VoIP session is suggested. It was found that the proposed system of this study provides a quicker QoS than the TLS-added system at a similar level of security. Also, it is able to provide a variety of additional services by the different users.

    Rare earth perovskite oxides constitute a wide family of materials presenting functional proper- ties strongly coupled to their crystalline structure. Here, we report on the experimental results on epitaxial PrVO3 deposited on SrTiO3 single crystal substrates by pulsed laser deposition. By com- bining advanced structural characterization tools, we have observed that the PVO unrelaxed film structure grown on STO, is characterized by two kinds of oriented domains whose epitaxial relations are: (i) PrVO3[110]o//SrTiO3[001]c and PrVO3[001]o//SrTiO3[100]c, (ii) PrVO3[110]o//SrTiO3[001]c and PrVO3[001]o//SrTiO3[010]c. We have also measured reciprocal space maps. From these results, we have determined that the PVO film epitaxy on STO imposes a lowering of the PVO structure symmetry from orthorhombic (Pbnm) to monoclinic (P21/m). We show, the nominal strain induced by the substrate being constant, that the obtained film structure depends on both growth oxygen and temperature. Thus, by finely controlling the depositio...

    Highlights: • Vanadium dioxide was successfully synthesized by pulsed laser deposition method on mica. • The morphology evolution within the samples is characterized by a change from isolated and less-percolating (0 1 1) VO2 crystallites to a percolating granular configuration. • Without any post annealing, the films exhibit a textured nature with a VO2 (0 1 1) preferred crystallographic orientation and an elevated thermal variation of the electric resistance ratio RS/RM through the SMT at T ≈ 68 °C of the order of 104 and a narrow ∼7 °C hysteresis. - Abstract: VO2 thin films have been deposited by pulsed laser deposition on Zinnwaldite Mica substrates. The crystal structure, chemical composition, morphology were determined and the semiconductor/metal transition (SMT) properties of the deposited films were investigated. Without any post annealing, the films exhibit a textured nature with a VO2 (0 1 1) preferred crystallographic orientation and an elevated thermal variation of the electric resistance ratio RS/RM through the SMT at T ≈ 68 °C of the order of 104 and a narrow ∼7 °C hysteresis. In addition, the growth of the VO2 crystallites seem to be governed likely by a Volmer-Weber or Stranski-Krastanov mechanisms and certainly not a Frank-van Der Merwe process

    Full Text Available A importância das qualidades morfofuncionais na melhora do rendimento nos esportes aumentou o interesse no aprimoramento dos níveis de aptidão física dos atletas. No entanto, há poucos estudos sobre as variáveis fisiológicas do futsal disponíveis na literatura científica mundial. Dessa forma, o objetivo deste estudo foi verificar a existência de correlação entre os testes de medida direta e indireta do VO2max, em jogadores de futsal. Foram analisados 13 jogadores de futsal, com idade de 18,6 ± 1,9 anos, altura igual a 177,1 ± 3,5cm, peso de 68,5 ± 9,5kg, índice de massa corporal (IMC de 21,7 ± 2,3kg/m². Para medida direta do VO2max foi utilizado o sistema ergoespirométrico computadorizado (VO-2000, Aerosport, Medgraphics, St. Paul, Minnesota e para mensuração indireta do VO2max foi realizado o teste de campo de 3.200m. A análise estatística foi elaborada através do teste t de Student para amostras pareadas e pelo coeficiente de correlação de Pearson. Os valores de VO2max obtidos no teste de medida direta não apresentaram diferenças significativas em relação à medida indireta (62,8 ± 10,1 vs. 58,5 ± 8,5ml/kg/min, respectivamente. Quando correlacionados os valores de VO2max obtidos em ambos os testes, observou-se forte correlação (r = 0,72. Em conclusão, os testes de medida indireta apresentam boa aceitação para os atletas de futsal, tendo em vista a alta correlação com os testes de medida direta, o baixo custo de sua aplicação e o fornecimento de informações importantes que podem auxiliar na prescrição e no acompanhamento do treinamento.La importância de las cualidades morfo-funcionales en la mejora del rendimiento en los deportes aumentó el interes en el acondicionamiento de los niveles de aptitud física de los atletas.

  10. Successive phase transitions in the orthovanadate TmVO3

    Sarkar, Tapati; Ivanov, Sergey A.; Bazuev, G. V.; Nordblad, Per; Mathieu, Roland

    2015-09-01

    Synthesis and crystal structure, magnetization and heat capacity measurements of phase pure polycrystalline TmVO3 are reported. TmVO3 was stabilized in the orthorhombic structure by thermal treatment of the precursor TmVO4 in a reducing atmosphere. Magnetization and heat capacity measurements reveal the presence of several successive structural and magnetic phase transitions in this compound. At T = 108 K, the sample undergoes a transition from a paramagnetic state to an antiferromagnetic state, followed by a second transition at 78 K which is related to spin and orbital reorientation. The heat capacity measurements reveal the presence of a third transition in the paramagnetic state (at T = 175 K), which corresponds to a structural phase transition and orbital ordering. At low temperatures (~15 K) and weak fields, there is an anomaly in the magnetization, which may be associated with antiferromagnetic short range ordering of the Tm3+ ions.

  12. Consideraciones sobre la producción de etanol a partir de la biomasa lignocelulósica

    José C. Villar

    2008-01-01

    Full Text Available En los últimos años, como consecuencia del aumento de los precios del petróleo y las exigencias ecológicas, ha crecido el interés por la producción de bioetanol como combustible de vehículos automotores. En Brasil y EEUU, los principales productores, se estima una producción por cada país en el 2006 de alrededor de los 19 mil millones de litros. Brasil planea aumentar la producción hasta 26.5 mil millones en el 2016 mientras que para esa misma fecha EEUU pretende alcanzar los 45,4 mil millones de litros. Las materias primas más empleadas son maíz y caña de azúcar. Sería de interés incluir entre éstas a la biomasa lignocelulósica que se obtiene como subproductos agrícolas y forestales (pajas de cereales, bagazo, aserrín y virutas de madera que no son aptos para el consumo humano y por su composición química son susceptibles de ser sacarificados por hidrólisis química o enzimática. Se analizan críticamente las posibles vías para desarrollar la producción de alcohol a partir de estos materiales, en especial la vía química, cuya perspectiva de éxito se encuentra estrechamente vinculada al desarrollo de reactores continuos. De esta manera, se pueden intensificar las condiciones de reacción que permitan incrementar la productividad del proceso, mediante la obtención de los máximos rendimientos de azúcares con el empleo de los menores volúmenes del equipamiento, sin descuidar la disminución de la concentración de sustancias inhibidoras de la fermentación en el sistema.

    This paper describes a solution-based route to synthesize vanadium dioxide (VO{sub 2}) thermochromic thin films on glass substrate by spin-coating technology followed by nitrogen-annealing with vanadium pentoxide (V{sub 2}O{sub 5}) and oxalic acid (H{sub 2}C{sub 2}O{sub 4}) as source material, which is fairly economical and practical. Surface morphologies indicate that the films obtained by this method are homogeneous and particulate, irregular prisms emerge as the annealing temperatures increase. X-ray diffractions show that films annealed at relatively low temperature are pure monoclinic phase with a preferred orientation of (011). NaV{sub 4}O{sub 7} and NaV{sub 6}O{sub 15} form along with raising the heating temperatures. VO{sub 2} films obtained exhibit excellent visible transparency and switching property at near-infrared wavelengths across the metal–semiconductor transition. Transmittance change at λ = 2000 nm of VO{sub 2} thin film annealed at 450 °C attains as high as 41.5% and its solar modulation efficiency reaches up to 8.8%. The W-doped VO{sub 2} film at a doping level of 1 at.% exhibits a thermochromic switch at 37 °C with a narrow hysteresis, which will greatly favor the practical application of VO{sub 2}-based smart windows. - Highlights: ► Vanadium dioxide thermochromic film was prepared via a solution-based deposition. ► Tungsten doping reduced the phase transition temperature to 37 °C. ► Tungsten doping narrowed the transmittance hysteresis loop. ► Our results will propel the application to vanadium dioxide-based smart windows.

    The field-effect transistor (FET) provides an electrical switching function of current flowing through a channel surface by external voltage. Here, we report on a field-effect device that enables electrical switching of optical transmittance as well as conventional electrical current. We investigated optical properties of vanadium dioxide (VO2) thin film under the presence of electric field generated at the interface between VO2 and ionic liquid in a FET geometry, and found that the device exhibits clear electrochromic effect with large ON/OFF contrast only in the infrared region, potentially beneficial for energy-saving smart window applications as a voltage-tunable transparent heat-cutting filter.

    Full Text Available Chloroform fumigation-incubation and chloroform fumigation-extraction approaches have significantly contributed to assess soil microbial biomass. Some controversy is found in the literature about the suggestion to calculate microbial biomass carbon (MBC without the subtraction of the un-fumigated control, in opposition to the originally proposed method that requires such subtraction. Some authors consider the non-subtraction proceeding as a more robust method. Nevertheless, values obtained without subtraction of a control include other labile organic fractions of soil carbon besides microbial biomass. Therefore, due to the usefulness of this measurement we consider more appropriate to call it as chloroform-fumigation labile C pool or microbial biomass carbon "plus" (MBC PLUS. We used a vast series of data from soils of Argentina and Brazil under different management situations to verify whether MBC correlates to MBC PLUS. There was a significant statistical correlation between values of MBC obtained by fumigation-extraction method and the corresponding MBC PLUS. The MBC PLUS performed as well as MBC as an indicator to differentiate soil managements and their impact on soil quality.Los métodos de fumigación-incubación y fumigación extracción han contribuido significativamente a las determinaciones de biomasa microbiana del suelo. En la literatura se encuentran algunas controversias acerca de la sugerencia de calcular el carbono de biomasa microbiana (CBM sin la sustracción del control no fumigado, en oposición a las metodologías tradicionales que requieren de dicha sustracción. Algunos autores mencionan que el hecho de no realizar la sustracción hace al procedimiento más robusto. Sin embargo, los valores obtenidos sin la sustracción del control incluyen otras fracciones lábiles del carbono, además de la biomasa microbiana. Debido a lo útil que resulta esta medida consideramos adecuado llamarla "pool" de carbono lábil por fumigaci

    Powell, M. J.; Marchand, P.; Denis, C. J.; Bear, J. C.; Darr, J. A.; Parkin, I. P.

    2015-11-01

    Monoclinic VO2 nanoparticles are of interest due to the material's thermochromic properties, however, direct synthesis routes to VO2 nanoparticles are often inaccessible due to the high synthesis temperatures or long reaction times required. Herein, we present a two-step synthesis route for the preparation of monoclinic VO2 nanoparticles using Continuous Hydrothermal Flow Synthesis (CHFS) followed by a short post heat treatment step. A range of particle sizes, dependent on synthesis conditions, were produced from 50 to 200 nm by varying reaction temperatures and the residence times in the process. The nanoparticles were characterised by powder X-ray diffraction, Raman and UV/Vis spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The nanoparticles were highly crystalline with rod and sphere-like morphologies present in TEM micrographs, with the size of both the rod and spherical particles being highly dependent on both reaction temperature and residence time. SEM micrographs showed the surface of the powders produced from the CHFS process to be highly uniform. The samples were given a short post synthesis heat treatment to ensure that they were phase pure monoclinic VO2, which led to them exhibiting a large and reversible switch in optical properties (at near-IR wavelengths), which suggests that if such materials can be incorporated into coatings or in composites, they could be used for fenestration in architectural applications.

    2015-12-01

    Inspired by the success of BESDIRAC, the distributed computing environment based on DIRAC for BESIII experiment, several other experiments operated by Institute of High Energy Physics (IHEP), such as Circular Electron Positron Collider (CEPC), Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO), Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO) and Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT) etc, are willing to use DIRAC to integrate the geographically distributed computing resources available by their collaborations. In order to minimize manpower and hardware cost, we extended the BESDIRAC platform to support multi-VO scenario, instead of setting up a self-contained distributed computing environment for each VO. This makes DIRAC as a service for the community of those experiments. To support multi-VO, the system architecture of BESDIRAC is adjusted for scalability. The VOMS and DIRAC servers are reconfigured to manage users and groups belong to several VOs. A lightweight storage resource manager StoRM is employed as the central SE to integrate local and grid data. A frontend system is designed for user's massive job splitting, submission and management, with plugins to support new VOs. A monitoring and accounting system is also considered to easy the system administration and VO related resources usage accounting.

    Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • Ag/AgVO{sub 3} and pure AgVO{sub 3} nanowires synthesized by sonochemical process. • Characterization done using XRD, SEM, TEM, EDX and BET analysis. • Visible light degradation of RhB by Ag/AgVO{sub 3} within 45 min. • Antibacterial activity of Ag/AgVO{sub 3} demonstrated. - Abstract: Ag/AgVO{sub 3} nanowires and AgVO{sub 3} nanorods were synthesized in aqueous media via a facile sonochemical route. The as-synthesized products were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Brunauer–Emmett–Teller surface area analysis, scanning electron microscopy together with an energy dispersion X-ray spectrum analysis, transmission electron microscopy and UV–vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy. The results revealed that inert atmosphere promotes the formation of Ag/AgVO{sub 3} nanowires. The photocatalytic studies revealed that the Ag/AgVO{sub 3} nanowires exhibited complete photocatalytic degradation of Rhodamine B within 45 min under visible light irradiation. The antibacterial activity of Ag/AgVO{sub 3} nanowires was tested against Escherechia coli and Bacillus subtilis. The minimum growth inhibitory concentration value was found to be 50 and 10 folds lower than for the antibiotic ciprofloxacin for E. coli and B. subtilis, respectively. The antibacterial properties of the β-AgVO{sub 3} nanorods prove that in case of the Ag dispersed Ag/AgVO{sub 3} nanowires, the enhanced antibacterial action is also due to contribution from the AgVO{sub 3} support.

    2005-01-01

    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) over a wireless local area network (WLAN) is poised to become an important Internet application. However, two major technical problems that stand in the way are: 1) low VoIP capacity in WLAN and 2) unacceptable VoIP performance in the presence of coexisting traffic from other applications. With each VoIP stream typically requiring less than 10 kb/s, an 802.11b WLAN operated at 11 Mb/ s could in principle support more than 500 VoIP sessions. In actuality, no...

  9. Synthesis, characterization and catalytic activity of two novel cis - dioxovanadium(V) complexes: [VO2(L)] and [VO2(HLox)

    Two novel complexes, [VO2(L)] (1) and [VO2(HLox)] (2), were synthesized and characterized by IV, UV-Vis and NMR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, elemental analysis and X-ray diffraction. The synthesis of a new ligand, H2Lox, is also described. Complexes 1 and 2 were obtained by the reaction of [VO(acac)2] with the ligands HL and H2Lox, respectively. Alternatively, 2 was also obtained by the reaction of HL with [VO(acac)2] in the presence of hydroxylamine, and by the reaction of 1 with hydroxylamine. Crystallographic data show that complexes 1 and 2 have similar molecular structures, in which the cis-dioxovanadium(V) center is coordinated to L- or HLox-, respectively, in a distorted octahedral environment. The catalytic activity of these compounds towards cyclohexane oxidation was evaluated using H2O2 and t-BuOOH as oxidants. Both complexes presented > 70% selectivity for cyclohexylhydroperoxide formation. B3LYP/6.31G(d) calculations were used to confirm the geometry and to help assign the electronic spectra. (author)

    Full Text Available El objetivo de este estudio fue realizar el análisis exergético de la gasificación de biomasa residual con la finalidad de obtener energía útil. Se desarrolló un modelo para la gasificación de biomasa basado en el equilibrio químico de las reacciones. Este modelo permite predecir la evolución de la composición del gas de síntesis en función de la temperatura, las presiones y la composición elemental de los residuos del proceso de extracción de aceite de palma y orujo de lavado de uva (hidrogeno, oxigeno, carbono y nitrógeno, como también hacer un análisis exergético. Se encontró que independiente del agente gasificante, la concentración de monóxido de carbono e hidrógeno tienden a incrementar significativamente a altas presiones y elevadas temperaturas. Además, se muestra que la eficiencia exergética incrementa con la temperatura y disminuye con el aumento de la relación aire/combustible.This paper shows the exergy analysis applied to the gasification process of residual biomass with the purpose of obtaining useful energy. A model for the biomass gasification based on chemical equilibrium of the reactions is proposed. The model allows predicting the syngas composition as a function of temperature, pressure and ultimate analysis of palm oil and grapevine pruning waste (determining hydrogen, oxygen, carbon and nitrogen. It was found that the carbon monoxide and hydrogen concentration significantly increase at high pressure and temperature independently of the gasifying agent. Furthermore, it was also noticed that the exergy efficiency increases as temperature increases, and decreases as the relative fuel/air ratio increases.

  14. Synthesis, characterization and photocatalytic activities of rare earth-loaded BiVO4 catalysts

    The BiVO4-based photocatalysts loaded with rare earth (RE=Ho, Sm, Yb, Eu, Gd, Nd, Ce and La) were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), nitrogen adsorption for the BET specific surface area and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The photocatalytic activities of the samples were evaluated by decolorization of methylene blue (MB) under visible light irradiation. The results of XRD, SEM and XPS analysis deduced that the rare earth ions were present as RE2O3 in the samples. The DRS analysis showed the shift in the absorbption edge from the UV to the visible range: Ho3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 3+-BiVO4 4. Gd3+-BiVO4 had the highest photocatalytic activity among all the RE3+-BiVO4 catalysts. The optimal Gd content was 8 at% under visible light irradiation. This beneficial effect was attributed to the specific electron structure characteristics of gadolinium and the increasing in the separation efficiency of the electron-hole pairs. On the contrast, the other rare earth ions had the detrimental effect on the photocatalytic decolorization of MB.

  15. Improving the Accuracy of Predicting Maximal Oxygen Consumption (VO2pk)

    Downs, Meghan E.; Lee, Stuart M. C.; Ploutz-Snyder, Lori; Feiveson, Alan

    2016-01-01

    Maximal oxygen (VO2pk) is the maximum amount of oxygen that the body can use during intense exercise and is used for benchmarking endurance exercise capacity. The most accurate method to determineVO2pk requires continuous measurements of ventilation and gas exchange during an exercise test to maximal effort, which necessitates expensive equipment, a trained staff, and time to set-up the equipment. For astronauts, accurate VO2pk measures are important to assess mission critical task performance capabilities and to prescribe exercise intensities to optimize performance. Currently, astronauts perform submaximal exercise tests during flight to predict VO2pk; however, while submaximal VO2pk prediction equations provide reliable estimates of mean VO2pk for populations, they can be unacceptably inaccurate for a given individual. The error in current predictions and logistical limitations of measuring VO2pk, particularly during spaceflight, highlights the need for improved estimation methods.

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available The crystal structure of brackebuschite, ideally Pb2Mn3+(VO42(OH [dilead(II manganese(III vanadate(V hydroxide], was redetermined based on single-crystal X-ray diffraction data of a natural sample from the type locality Sierra de Cordoba, Argentina. Improving on previous results, anisotropic displacement parameters for all non-H atoms were refined and the H atom located, obtaining a significant improvement of accuracy and an unambiguous hydrogen-bonding scheme. Brackebuschite belongs to the brackebuschite group of minerals with general formula A2M(T1O4(T2O4(OH, H2O, with A = Pb2+, Ba, Ca, Sr; M = Cu2+, Zn, Fe2+, Fe3+, Mn3+, Al; T1 = As5+, P, V5+; and T2 = As5+, P, V5+, S6+. The crystal structure of brackebuschite is based on a cubic closest-packed array of O and Pb atoms with infinite chains of edge-sharing [Mn3+O6] octahedra located about inversion centres and decorated by two unique VO4 tetrahedra (each located on a special position 2e, site symmetry m. One type of VO4 tetrahedra is linked with the 1∞[MnO4/2O2/1] chain by one common vertex, alternating with H atoms along the chain, while the other type of VO4 tetrahedra link two adjacent octahedra by sharing two vertices with them and thereby participating in the formation of a three-membered Mn2V ring between the central atoms. The 1∞[Mn3+(VO42OH] chains run parallel to [010] and are held together by two types of irregular [PbOx] polyhedra (x = 8, 11, both located on special position 2e (site symmetry m. The magnitude of the libration component of the O atoms of the 1∞[Mn3+(VO42OH] chain increases linearly with the distance from the centerline of the chain, indicating a significant twisting to and fro of the chain along [010]. The hydroxy group bridges one Pb2+ cation with two Mn3+ cations and forms an almost linear hydrogen bond with a vanadate group of a neighbouring chain. The O...O distance of this interaction determined from the structure refinement agrees well with Raman

  1. Epitaxial growth of VO2 by periodic annealing

    We report the growth of ultrathin VO2 films on rutile TiO2 (001) substrates via reactive molecular-beam epitaxy. The films were formed by the cyclical deposition of amorphous vanadium and its subsequent oxidation and transformation to VO2 via solid-phase epitaxy. Significant metal-insulator transitions were observed in films as thin as 2.3 nm, where a resistance change ΔR/R of 25 was measured. Low angle annular dark field scanning transmission electron microscopy was used in conjunction with electron energy loss spectroscopy to study the film/substrate interface and revealed the vanadium to be tetravalent and the titanium interdiffusion to be limited to 1.6 nm

    2013-01-01

    The ability to achieve energy saving in architectures and optimal solar energy utilisation affects the sustainable development of the human race. Traditional smart windows and solar cells cannot be combined into one device for energy saving and electricity generation. A VO2 film can respond to the environmental temperature to intelligently regulate infrared transmittance while maintaining visible transparency, and can be applied as a thermochromic smart window. Herein, we report for the first time a novel VO2-based smart window that partially utilises light scattering to solar cells around the glass panel for electricity generation. This smart window combines energy-saving and generation in one device, and offers potential to intelligently regulate and utilise solar radiation in an efficient manner. PMID:24157625

Whereas the c-axis lattice parameter of VO2 decreases through the thermally induced insulator-to-metal phase transition, the gate-induced metallization was found to result in a significant increase of the c-axis length by almost 1% from that of the thermally stabilized insulating state. We also found that this gate-induced gigantic lattice deformation occurs even at the thermally stabilized metallic state, enabling dynamic control of c-axis lattice parameter by more than 1% at room temperature

    Highlights: • NdVO{sub 4} and LaVO{sub 4} were studied under high pressure using synchrotron powder XRD. • Both compounds exhibit first-order phase transitions. • In NdVO{sub 4} the transition involves a symmetry breaking and in LaVO{sub 4} is isomorphic. • The crystal structures of the high-pressure phases are assigned. • Axial and bulk compressibilities are determined. - Abstract: Room-temperature angle-dispersive X-ray diffraction measurements on zircon-type NdVO{sub 4} and monazite-type LaVO{sub 4} were performed in a diamond-anvil cell up to 12 GPa. In NdVO{sub 4}, we found evidence for a non-reversible pressure-induced structural phase transition from zircon to a monazite-type structure at 6.5 GPa. Monazite-type LaVO{sub 4} also exhibits a phase transition but at 8.6 GPa. In this case the transition is reversible and isomorphic. In both compounds the pressure induced transitions involve a large volume collapse. Finally, the equations of state and axial compressibilities for the low-pressure phases are also determined.

  5. Structural and morphology comparison between m-LaVO4 and LaVO3 compounds prepared by sol-gel acrylamide polymerization and solid state reaction

    We contrast the production of LaVO3 polycrystalline samples obtained by reduction of m-LaVO4 prepared by sol-gel acrylamide polymerization (SGAP) and solid state reaction (SSR). For SGAP the formation of m-LaVO4 occurs at 400 deg. C, for SSR at 1400 deg. C. For m-LaVO4-SGAP we observe a homogeneous morphology with needle-shaped grains of 50 nm average size. The SSR presents a broader size distribution in the micrometer range. Both m-LaVO4 samples were reduced into LaVO3 using a Zr rod at 850 deg. C in vacuum. LaVO3-SGAP presents a homogeneous grain distribution with an average size of 745 nm. LaVO3-SSR has an average size of 3.45 μm. The stoichiometry of all compounds was confirmed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. X-ray powder diffraction and transmission electron microscopy give crystal structures in agreement with those reported in the literature.

  8. Effect of W addition on the electrical switching of VO2 thin films

    Rajeswaran, Bharathi; Umarji, Arun M.

    2016-03-01

    Vanadium Oxide has been a frontrunner in the field of oxide electronics because of its metal-insulator transition (MIT). The interplay of different structures of VO2 has played a crucial role in deciding the magnitude of the first order MIT. Substitution doping has been found to introduce different polymorphs of VO2. Hence the role of substitution doping in stabilizing the competing phases of VO2 in the thin film form remains underexplored. Consequently there have been reports both discounting and approving such a stabilization of competing phases in VO2. It is reported in the literature that the bandwidth of the hysteresis and transition temperature of VO2 can be tuned by substitutional doping of VO2 with W. In this work, we have adopted a novel technique called, Ultrasonic Nebulized Spray Pyrolysis of Aqueous Combustion Mixture (UNSPACM) to deposit VO2 and W- doped VO2 as thin films. XRD and Raman spectroscopy were used to investigate the role of tungsten on the structure of VO2 thin films. Morphology of the thin films was found to be consisting of globular and porous nanoparticles of size ˜ 20nm. Transition temperature decreased with the addition of W. We found that for 2.0 at % W doping in VO2, the transition temperature has reduced from 68 o C to 25 o C. It is noted that W-doping in the process of reducing the transition temperature, alters the local structure and also increases room temperature carrier concentration.

    2013-01-01

    Aim: The purpose of this study was to assess the indirect calculation of VO2max using ACSM’s equation for Bruce protocol in athletes of different sports and to compare with the directly measured; secondly to develop regression models predicting VO2 max in athletes. Methods: Fifty five male athletes of national and international level (mean age 28.3 ± 5.6 yrs) performed graded exercise test with direct measurement of VO2 through ergospirometric device. Moreover, 3 equations were used for the indirect calculation of VO2max: a) VO2max= (0.2 · Speed) + (0.9 · Speed · Grade) + 3.5 (ACSM running equation), b) regression analysis model using enter method and c) stepwise method based on the measured data of VO2. Age, BMI, speed, grade and exercise time were used as independent variables. Results: Regression analysis using enter method yielded the equation (R=.64, standard error of estimation [SEE] = 6.11): VO2max (ml·kg-1·min-1) = 58.443 - (0.215 · age) - (0.632 · BMI) - (68.639 · grade) + (1.579 · time) while stepwise method (R = .61, SEE = 6.18) led to: VO2max (ml·kg-1·min-1) = 33.971 - (0.291 · age) + (1.481 · time). The calculated values of VO2max from these regression models did not differ significantly from the measured VO2max (p>.05). On the contrary, VO2max calculated from the ACSM’s running equation was significantly higher from the actually measured value by 14.6% (p <.05). Conclusions: In conclusion, it seems that ACSM’s equation is not capable of accurately predicting VO2max in athletes aged 18-37 years using Bruce protocol. Only the regression models were correlated moderately with the actually measured values of VO2max. PMID:24376318

    2015-12-01

    Multiferroic materials are promising candidates for next-generation multi-functional devices, because of the coexistence of multi-orders and the coupling between the orders. FeVO4 has been confirmed to be a multiferroic compound, since it exhibits both ferroelectricity and antiferromagnetic ordering at low temperatures. In this paper, we have performed careful Raman scattering measurements on high-quality FeVO4 single crystals. The compound has a very rich phonon structure due to its low crystal symmetry (P - 1) and at least 47 Raman-active phonon modes have been resolved in the low and hightemperature spectra. Most of the observed modes are well assigned with aid of first-principles calculations and symmetry analysis. The present study provides an experimental basis for exploring spin-lattice coupling and the mechanism of multiferroicity in FeVO4 Project supported by the National Basic Research Program of China (Grant No. 2012CB921701), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (Grant Nos. 11174367 and 11004243), the China Postdoctoral Science Foundation, the Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities, and the Research Funds of Renmin University of China (Grant Nos. 10XNI038, 14XNLF06, and 14XNLQ03).

    Schaaff, A.; Petit, F. L.; Prugniel, P.; Slezak, E.; Surace, C.

    2008-08-01

    The French Action Spécifique Observatoires Virtuels has created the Workflow Working Group in 2005. Its aim is to explore the use of the Workflow paradigm in the astronomical domain. The first consensus was the definition of a Workflow as a sequence of tasks realized in a controlled context (at various levels: intelligence in the choice of the algorithms, flow control, etc.), based on use cases studies, in an architecture which takes into account VO standards. The current roadmap is to provide scientific use cases in several domains (image, spectrum, simulation, data mining, etc.) and to improve them mainly with VO existing tools. Another important point is to develop collaborations with the IT community (links to EGEE, ...). Use cases are useful to compare the pertinence of the possible workflow models and to understand how to implement it as efficiently as possible with the existing tools (ex. : AstroGrid, AÏDA, WebCom-G, etc.). The execution (local machine, cluster, grid) through this kind of tools and the use of VO functionalities (Web Services, Grid, VOSpace, etc.) becomes almost transparent.

    The luminescence properties of the yellow pigment BiMg2VO6 are revisited and those of BiMg2PO6, BiMg2VO6:Pr3+ and BiMg2VO6:Eu3+ are described. It is shown that the undoped systems exhibit broad band emission in the green or orange spectral regions, but only upon UV or near UV excitation. In contradiction with a previous report, we found that the blue, host absorbed, photons are lost non-radiatively and do not contribute to the luminescence processes in BiMg2VO6. To understand these experimental results, the optical properties of BiMg2VO6 and BiMg2PO6 are theoretically analysed on the basis of electronic structure diagrams calculated by the DFT method. It is found that the optical transitions are mostly localised within [VO4]3- units or non-regular Bi3+ ions and occur in the UV or near UV regions. The luminescence of the trivalent lanthanide dopants is weak (Eu3+) or unobserved (Pr3+) in BiMg2VO6 which is explained by inefficient energy migration in the host lattice to the impurity sites.

Biomass determination in the field in future plots is going to help the calibration of this approach to estimate biomass stored in tropical forests.Una de las medidas más relevantes para la mitigación del cambio climático es la conservación y regeneración del bosque en nuestros países.  La cantidad de carbono que se almacena en la biomasa arbórea pasa a ser una medida relevante para la política pública. El presente trabajo analiza la asociación que tienen algunas variables dasométricas, fácilmente medibles, asociadas a la biomasa, con el propósito de estimarla indirectamente, dado que la medición directa de la biomasa arbórea es un trabajo complejo y tiene un costo muy elevado.  El objetivo general del estudio fue hacer un análisis del comportamiento de las variables dasométricas fácilmente medibles para predecir biomasa arbórea con datos de dos bosques tropicales de Costa Rica, con el propósito de analizar su posible aplicación generalizada en los bosques tropicales de todo el país. Mediante una revisión bibliográfica, se determinaron cuatro posibles modelos que estiman biomasa en bosques tropicales. Se evaluaron 907 árboles con diámetro a la altura de pecho (dap mayor a 10 cm en dos bosques tropicales de Costa Rica (Parque Nacional Corcovado en el suroeste y Fila Carbón en el sureste, vertiente del Caribe, generando una estimación de biomasa lo más precisa posible. Se realizó un análisis de las variables de los árboles (densidad específica de la madera, altura total y dap y su biomasa, con el fin de desarrollar el modelo que facilitara la predicción de esta. El modelo final utiliza como variables independientes el dap y la densidad.  Con el dap se da el hecho de que existe una alta correlación con la altura total, la cual es muy difícil de obtener en el campo, de modo que se decidió no utilizarla.

    Full Text Available An enormous enhancement in the photo-to-current conversion efficiency over the nanocomposite material composed by BiVO4 on the surface of MWCNTs, with respect to electrode of pure BiVO4, was observed. The heterojunction formed between MWCNTs and nano-BiVO4 is beneficial for the separation of photogenerated electrons and holes, resulting in more electrons that are able to transport efficiently to the surface and therefore enhance the photoefficiency.

  1. Effect of Oxide Buffer Layer on the Thermochromic Properties of VO2 Thin Films

    Koo, Hyun; Xu, Lu; Ko, Kyeong-Eun; Ahn, Seunghyun; Chang, Se-Hong; Park, Chan

    2013-12-01

    VO2 thin films were deposited on soda lime glass substrates with ZnO, TiO2, SnO2, and CeO2 thin films applied as buffer layers between the VO2 films and the substrates in order to investigate the effect of buffer layer on the formation and the thermochromic properties of VO2 film. Buffer layers with thicknesses over 50 nm were found to affect the formation of VO2 film, which was confirmed by XRD spectra. By using ZnO, TiO2, and SnO2 buffer layers, monoclinic VO2 (VO2(M)) film was successfully fabricated on soda lime glass at 370 °C. On the contrary, films of VO2(B), which is known to have no phase transition near room temperature, were formed rather than VO2(M) when the film was deposited on CeO2 buffer layer at the same film deposition temperature. The excellent thermochromic properties of the films deposited on ZnO, TiO2, and SnO2 buffer layers were confirmed from the temperature dependence of electrical resistivity from room temperature to 80 °C. Especially, due to the tendency of ZnO thin film to grow with a high degree of preferred orientation on soda lime glass at low temperature, the VO2 film deposited on ZnO buffer layer exhibits the best thermochromic properties compared to those on other buffer layer materials used in this study. These results suggest that deposition of VO2 films on soda lime glass at low temperature with excellent thermochromic properties can be achieved by considering the buffer layer material having structural similarity with VO2. Moreover, the degree of crystallization of buffer layer is also related with that of VO2 film, and thus ZnO can be one of the most effective buffer layer materials.

  11. Insights into Stabilization of the 99TcVO Core for Synthesis of 99TcVO Compounds

    McGregor, Donna; Burton-Pye, Benjamin P.; Lukens, Wayne W.; Howell, Robertha C.; Francesconi, Lynn C.

    2014-01-01

    Synthesis of technetium-99 (99Tc; t1/2: 2.1 105 years, max: 253 keV) materials is of importance in studies of the nuclear fuel cycle where Tc is a major fission product (6percent thermal yield from 235U and 239Pu), in understanding radioactive tank waste composition, and in identifying 99mTc compounds for nuclear medicine imaging. One of the most useful synthetic starting materials, (NBu4)TcOCl4, is susceptible to disproportionation in water to form TcO4 and TcIV species, especially TcO2 2H2O. This unwanted reaction is especially problematic when working with ligands bearing hard donor atoms, such as oxygen, where the stability with the soft TcV=O3+ core may be low. Polyoxometalates (POMs) are such ligands. They possess defect sites with four hard oxygen atoms and show low (ca. 108) stability constants with transition metals. Tc complexes of POMs are molecular-level models for Tc metal oxide solid-state materials and can provide information on coordination and redox environments of metal oxides that stabilize low-valent Tc. In order to synthesize pure Tc POM complexes [TcVO(1-P2W17O61)]7 (TcVO-1) and [TcVO(2-P2W17O61)]7 (TcVO-2) from (NBu4)TcOCl4, we have identified strategies that minimize formation of TcIV species and optimize the formation of pure TcV species. The parameters that we consider are the amount of ethylene glycol, which is employed as a transfer ligand to prevent hydrolysis of (NBu4)TcOCl4, and the precipitating agent. The TcIV species that contaminates the non-optimized syntheses is likely a TcIV -oxido-bridged dimer [TcIV-(-O)2-TcIV]. We also employ a novel procedure where the 2 ligand is photoactivated and reduced (in the presence of a sacrificial electron donor) to subsequently reduce TcVIIO4 to an isolatable TcVO-2 product that is remarkably free of TcIV.

    Rogel Ramirez, Alejandro

    2007-07-01

    The central idea behind this work is the developing of a numeric-experimental model, useful to optimize the biomass stratified gasifier design. Firstly, model validation will be carried up by comparison with reference experimental data available. This study describes a 1-D + 2-D numerical model used to simulate the gasification of pine wood pellets in a stratified downdraft gasifier whereby Eulerian conservation equations are solved for particle and gas phase components, velocities and specific enthalpies. The model takes into account the biomass particle process such as heating up, drying, primary pyrolysis of biomass, secondary pyrolysis of tar, homogeneous reactions and heterogeneous combustion/gasification reactions, and particle size change. This CFD model can be used to predict temperature profiles, gas composition, producer gas lower heating value, and carbon conversion efficiency, and the reactor performance when operating parameters and feed properties are changed. The standard {kappa}-{epsilon} and RNG {kappa}-{epsilon} models were used to simulate the turbulent flow conditions. [Spanish] La idea central del presente trabajo es el desarrollo de un modelo numerico- experimental, para optimizar el diseno de gasificadores estratificados de biomasa. Primeramente, el modelo sera validado utilizando datos experimentales disponibles en la literatura. Este estudio describe un modelo numerico 1-D+2-D, utilizado para simular la gasificacion de 'pelets' de madera de pino en un gasificador estratificado de flujos paralelos, en el que se resuelven ecuaciones de conservacion Eulerianas para los componentes de la fase gaseosa, la fase solida, velocidades y entalpias especificas. El modelo considera procesos como: calentamiento, secado de la biomasa, pirolisis primaria de la madera, pirolisis secundaria de los alquitranes, reacciones homogeneas, reacciones heterogeneas de combustion/gasificacion y cambio en el tamano de la particula.

  14. Phase coexistence in the metal-insulator transition of a VO2 thin film

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) shows a metal-insulator transition (MIT) near room temperature, accompanied by an abrupt resistivity change. Since the MIT of VO2 is known to be a first order phase transition, it is valuable to check metallic and insulating phase segregation during the MIT process. We deposited (100)-oriented epitaxial VO2 thin films on R-cut sapphire substrates. From the scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) spectra, we could distinguish metallic and insulating regions by probing the band gap. Optical spectroscopic analysis also supported the view that the MIT in VO2 occurs through metal and insulator phase coexistence

  15. Optimization of thermochromic VO2-based structures with tunable thermal emissivity

    In this paper we design and simulate VO2/metal multilayers to obtain a large tunability of the thermal emissivity of IR filters in the typical MWIR window of many infrared cameras. The multilayer structure is optimized to realise a low-emissivity filter at high temperatures useful for military purposes. The values of tunability found for VO2/metal multilayers are larger than the value for a single thick layer of VO2. Innovative SiO2/VO2 synthetic opals are also investigated to enhance the optical tunability by combining the properties of a 3D periodic structure and the specific optical properties of vanadium dioxide.

  16. Fe2O3-Modified Porous BiVO4 Nanoplates with Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity

    Ping Cai; Shu-Mei Zhou; De-Kun Ma; Shen-Nan Liu; Wei Chen; Shao-Ming Huang

    2015-01-01

    As BiVO4 is one of the most popular visible-light-responding photocatalysts, it has been widely used for visible-light-driven water splitting and environmental purification. However, the typical photocatalytic activity of unmodified BiVO4 for the degradation of organic pollutants is still not impressive. To address this limitation, we studied Fe2O3-modified porous BiVO4 nanoplates. Compared with unmodified BiVO4, the Fe2O3-modified porous BiVO4 nanoplates showed significantly enhanced photocatalytic activities in decomposing both dye and colorless pollutant models, such as rhodamine B (RhB) and phenol, respectively. The pseudo-first-order reaction rate constants for the degradation of RhB and phenol on Fe2O3-modified BiVO4 porous nanoplates are 27 and 31 times larger than that of pristine BiVO4, respectively. We also found that the Fe2O3 may act as an efficient non-precious metal co-catalyst, which is responsible for the excellent photocatalytic activity of Fe2O3/BiVO4. Graphical Abstract Fe2O3, as a cheap and efficient co-catalyst, could greatly enhance the photocatalytic activity of BiVO4 porous nanoplates in decomposing organic pollutants.

    2012-07-31

    High quality VO{sub 2} crystal films have been prepared on sapphire substrates by pulsed laser deposition method and the effects of oxygen pressure on the crystal phase structure are investigated. Results indicate that the phases and microstructures of VO{sub 2} films are strongly sensitive to oxygen pressure. High oxygen pressure tends to form coarse B-VO{sub 2} nanocrystals while low pressure favors a flat M1-VO{sub 2} film epitaxial growth. X-ray diffraction {phi}-scan patterns confirm the [020] epitaxial growth orientation of the M1-VO{sub 2} film and the in-plane lattice epitaxial relationship at the interface is also examined. Raman spectra indicate that M1-VO{sub 2} phase has much stronger Raman scattering modes than B-VO{sub 2}, and the clear phonon modes further confirm the idea stoichiometry of VO{sub 2} crystal film. Infrared transmittance spectra as the function of temperature are recorded and the results show that M1-VO{sub 2} crystal films undergo a distinct infrared transmittance variation across metal insulator transition boundary, while B-VO{sub 2} exhibits negligible thermochromic switching properties in the temperature range concerned. The pronounced phase transition behavior of the M1-VO{sub 2} crystal film makes it a promising candidate for optical filter/switch and smart window applications in the future. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer High quality VO{sub 2} films with different phase structures were obtained by PLD method. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer High oxygen pressure tends to form B-VO{sub 2} while low pressure favors M1-VO{sub 2} film. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer {phi}-scan XRD confirms the [020] epitaxial growth orientation of the M1-VO{sub 2} film. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The epitaxial relationship is explained based on domain matching theory. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer M1-VO2 film shows excellent optical property in infrared range.

    A dual target magnetron sputtering system was used to synthesize nanocomposite films with VO2 nanocrystals embedded in Al2O3 matrix. Glancing incidence X-ray diffraction and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy reveal the formation of VO2 nanocrystallites with monoclinic structure. X-ray photoemission analysis confirmed that oxide particles predominantly possess VO2 stoichiometry. Valence band spectra acquired below and above transition temperature demonstrate that embedded VO2 particles exhibit a first-order monoclinic-to-tetragonal phase transition, however the band shape in a metallic state exhibits feature that is not characteristic for bulk material

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) films with a low semiconductor-to-metal transition temperature of 45 °C were fabricated through direct current magnetron sputtering followed by a post-annealing. Atomic force microscopy measurements show that the VO2 grain size is about one hundred of nanometers. Infrared (IR) characteristic is well investigated by applying a He-Ne laser power intensity measurement, and the result reveals that the VO2 film exhibits excellent IR switching property. Furthermore, solar smart window and laser protection experiments demonstrate that the obtained VO2 thin film is a promising material for the application in related fields.

  9. VoSeq: a voucher and DNA sequence web application.

    Carlos Peña

    Full Text Available There is an ever growing number of molecular phylogenetic studies published, due to, in part, the advent of new techniques that allow cheap and quick DNA sequencing. Hence, the demand for relational databases with which to manage and annotate the amassing DNA sequences, genes, voucher specimens and associated biological data is increasing. In addition, a user-friendly interface is necessary for easy integration and management of the data stored in the database back-end. Available databases allow management of a wide variety of biological data. However, most database systems are not specifically constructed with the aim of being an organizational tool for researchers working in phylogenetic inference. We here report a new software facilitating easy management of voucher and sequence data, consisting of a relational database as back-end for a graphic user interface accessed via a web browser. The application, VoSeq, includes tools for creating molecular datasets of DNA or amino acid sequences ready to be used in commonly used phylogenetic software such as RAxML, TNT, MrBayes and PAUP, as well as for creating tables ready for publishing. It also has inbuilt BLAST capabilities against all DNA sequences stored in VoSeq as well as sequences in NCBI GenBank. By using mash-ups and calls to web services, VoSeq allows easy integration with public services such as Yahoo! Maps, Flickr, Encyclopedia of Life (EOL and GBIF (by generating data-dumps that can be processed with GBIF's Integrated Publishing Toolkit.

  10. Synthesis and characterization of Pt/AgVO{sub 3} nanowires for degradation of atrazine using visible light irradiation

    Malkhasian, Aramice Y.S., E-mail: amalkhasian10@gmail.com

    2015-11-15

    A hydrothermal method was used to prepare β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowire, a photo-assisted deposition (PAD) method was used to prepare Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowires. β-AgVO{sub 3} and Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowires were characterized using XRD, BET, UV–Vis spectroscopy, Pl, TEM, and XPS techniques. The results reveal that platinum was present as platinum metal and it is well dispersed on the surface of β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowire. The photocatalytic degradation of atrazine under visible light irradiation was used to measure the photocatalytic performance of the β-AgVO{sub 3} and Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowires. The photocatalytic activity of Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowires have higher photocatalytic activity than β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowire. The reason for the high photocatalytic activity of Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowires may be due to the synergic effect between Pt and β-AgVO{sub 3}. - Highlights: • Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} nanowires were successfully prepared. • By control weight percent of Pt photocatalytic activity can be controlled. • Pt/β-AgVO{sub 3} can complete oxidation of atrazine under visible light irradiation.

  11. Comprehensive picture of VO2 from band theory

    Zhu, Zhiyong

    2012-08-28

    The structural, electronic, and magnetic features of the metal-insulator transition from the tetragonal rutile (R) to the monoclinic (M1) phase of VO2 are well reproduced by band theory using the modified Becke-Johnson exchange potential. Based on this description, we identify a tendency for monoclinic charge ordering in the R phase due to electronic correlations as the origin of the phase transition. Whereas, the structural changes are crucial for the gap opening in the M1 phase, spin degeneracy in both phases is stabilized by correlation-induced delocalization of the V3d electrons.

    Midya, A.; Khan, N.; Bhoi, D.; Mandal, P.

    2014-09-01

    We have investigated the magnetic and magnetocaloric properties of DyVO4 by magnetization and heat capacity measurements. χ(T) shows antiferromagnetic to paramagnetic transition at TNDy~3.5 K. The compound undergoes a metamagnetic transition and exhibits a huge entropy change. The maximum values of magnetic entropy change (ΔSM), adiabatic temperature change (ΔTad) and refrigerant capacity (RC) reach 26 J kg-1 K-1, 17 K, and 526 J kg-1, respectively for a field change of 0-8 T. Moreover, the material is highly insulating and exhibits no thermal and field hysteresis, satisfying the necessary conditions for a good magnetic refrigerant material.

    Montero, José; Ji, Yu-Xia; Granqvist, Claes G.; Niklasson, Gunnar A.

    2016-02-01

    Particulate layers of thermochromic (TC) VO2 were made by reactive DC magnetron sputtering of vanadium onto In2O3:Sn-coated glass. The deposits were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Specular and diffuse optical transmittance and reflectance were recorded in the 300-2500-nm wavelength range and displayed pronounced TC effects. These properties could be reconciled with a semi-quantitative model based on Lorentz-Mie theory applied to the distribution of particle sizes and accounting for particle shapes by the Grenfell-Warren approach with equal-volume-to-area spheres.

  18. VoIP Steganography and Its Detection - A Survey

    Mazurczyk, Wojciech

    2012-01-01

    Steganography is an ancient art that encompasses various techniques of information hiding, the aim of which is to secret information into a carrier message. Steganographic methods are usually aimed at hiding the very existence of the communication. Due to the rise in popularity of IP telephony, together with the large volume of data and variety of protocols involved, it is currently attracting the attention of the research community as a perfect carrier for steganographic purposes. This paper is a survey of the existing VoIP steganography (steganophony) methods and their countermeasures.

  20. Extraction Of Electronic Evidence From VoIP: Identification & Analysis Of Digital Speech

    David Irwin

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available The Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP is increasing in popularity as a cost effective and efficient means of making telephone calls via the Internet. However, VoIP may also be an attractive method of communication to criminals as their true identity may be hidden and voice and video communications are encrypted as they are deployed across the Internet. This produces in a new set of challenges for forensic analysts compared with traditional wire-tapping of the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN infrastructure, which is not applicable to VoIP. Therefore, other methods of recovering electronic evidence from VoIP are required.  This research investigates the analysis and recovery of digitised human, which persists in computer memory after a VoIP call.This paper proposes a proof of concept how remnants of digitised human speech from a VoIP call may be identified within a forensic memory capture based on how the human voice is detected via a microphone and encoded to a digital format using the sound card of your personal computer. This digital format is unencrypted whist processed in Random Access Memory (RAM before it is passed to the VoIP application for encryption and  transmission over the Internet. Similarly, an incoming encrypted VoIP call is decrypted by the VoIP application and passes through RAM unencrypted in order to be played via the speaker output.A series of controlled tests were undertaken whereby RAM captures were analysed for remnants of digital speech after a VoIP audio call with known conversation. The identification and analysis of digital speech from RAM attempts to construct an automatic process for the identification and subsequent reconstruction of the audio content of a VoIP call.

  1. VoIP Technology: Investigation of QoS and Security Issues

    Amor Lazzez

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available Voice over IP (VoIP is the technology allowing voice traffic transmission as data packets over a private or a public IP network. VoIP allows significant benefits for customers and communication services providers. The main are cost savings, rich media service, phone and service portability and mobility, and the integration with other applications. Nevertheless, the deployment of the VoIP technology encounters many challenges such as architecture complexity, interoperability problems, QoS concerns, and security issues. Due to the inability of the IP networking technology to support the stringent QoS constraints of voice traffic, and the incapability of traditional security mechanisms to adequately protect VoIP systems from recent intelligent attacks, QoS and security issues are considered as the most serious challenges for successful deployment of the VoIP technology. The aim of this paper is to carry out a deep analysis of the security issues and QoS concerns of the VoIP technology. Firstly, we present a brief overview about the VoIP technology. Then, we discuss the QoS problems encountering the deployment of the VoIP technology. The presented discussion mainly address the QoS issues related to the use of the IP networking technology, the QoS concerns related to voice clarity, and the QoS mechanisms proposed to support voice traffic QoS constraints. After that, we investigate the security issues of the VoIP technology. The presented investigation mainly address the vulnerabilities and security attacks of VoIP systems, as well as the countermeasures that should be considered to help the deployment of secured VoIP systems.

    2016-05-01

    The new members of the Ag2-xNaxMn2Fe(VO4)3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 2) solid solution were synthesized by a solid-state reaction route, and their crystal structures were determined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. The physical properties were characterized by Mössbauer and electrochemical impedance spectroscopies, galvanostatic cycling, and cyclic voltammetry. These materials crystallize with a monoclinic symmetry (space group C2/c), and the structure is considered to be a new member of the AA'MM'2(XO4)3 alluaudite family. The A, A', M, and X sites are fully occupied by Ag(+)/Na(+), Ag(+)/Na(+), Mn(2+), and V(5+), respectively, whereas a Mn(2+)/Fe(3+) mixture is observed in the M' site. The Mössbauer spectra confirm that iron is trivalent. The impedance measurements indicate that the silver phase is a better conductor than the sodium phase. Furthermore, these phases exhibit ionic conductivities 2 orders of magnitude higher than those of the homologous phosphates. The electrochemical tests prove that Na2Mn2Fe(VO4)3 is active as positive and negative electrodes in sodium-ion batteries. PMID:27054803

  6. The Effect of Aging on Relationships between Lean Body Mass and VO2max in Rowers

    Kim, Chul-Ho

    2016-01-01

    Aging is associated with a fall in maximal aerobic capacity as well as with a decline in lean body mass. The purpose of the study was to investigate the influence of aging on the relationship between aerobic capacity and lean body mass in subjects that chronically train both their upper and lower bodies. Eleven older rowers (58±5 yrs) and 11 younger rowers (27±4 yrs) participated in the study. Prior to the VO2max testing, subjects underwent a dual energy X-ray absorptiometry scan to estimate total lean body mass. Subsequently, VO2max was quantified during a maximal exercise test on a rowing ergometer as well as a semi-recumbent cycle ergometer. The test protocol included a pre-exercise stage followed by incremental exercise until VO2max was reached. The order of exercise modes was randomized and there was a wash-out period between the two tests. Oxygen uptake was obtained via a breath-by-breath metabolic cart (Vmax™ Encore, San Diego, CA). Rowing VO2max was higher than cycling VO2max in both groups (p0.05), however, older subjects still demonstrated a lower rowing VO2max relative to younger subjects (p<0.05). Muscle mass is associated with the VO2max obtained, however, it appears that VO2max in older subjects may be less influenced by muscle mass than in younger subjects. PMID:27479009

    This study involves the optical properties of Pt/VO{sub 2} composite films, with a Pt top layer and a VO{sub 2} bottom layer. VO{sub 2} and Pt films were grown on fused silica substrates by polymer-assisted deposition and sputtering, respectively. These Pt/VO{sub 2} films were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, UV-visible-NIR spectrophotometry, Fourier transform infrared spectrometry, four-point probe and Raman spectroscopy. The results indicate that these Pt/VO{sub 2} films can enhance the infrared reflectivity while retaining their thermochromic properties. Although the visible transmittance is depressed by these Pt layers, the addition of antireflection coatings boosts the transmittance from 25.1% to 37.9% at 0.55 {mu}m. In addition, the semiconductor-metal (S-M) transition temperatures of Pt/VO{sub 2} films shift to lower temperatures in the heating semicycle (T{sub c,h}), from 67.8 C for a pure VO{sub 2} film to 58.5 C for a VO{sub 2} film covered with a 9 nm Pt layer. This work provides an important prototype structure for the development of new smart windows that combine thermochromic properties with low emissivity. (author)

  10. Removing the thermal component from heart rate provides an accurate VO2 estimation in forest work.

    Dubé, Philippe-Antoine; Imbeau, Daniel; Dubeau, Denise; Lebel, Luc; Kolus, Ahmet

    2016-05-01

    Heart rate (HR) was monitored continuously in 41 forest workers performing brushcutting or tree planting work. 10-min seated rest periods were imposed during the workday to estimate the HR thermal component (ΔHRT) per Vogt et al. (1970, 1973). VO2 was measured using a portable gas analyzer during a morning submaximal step-test conducted at the work site, during a work bout over the course of the day (range: 9-74 min), and during an ensuing 10-min rest pause taken at the worksite. The VO2 estimated, from measured HR and from corrected HR (thermal component removed), were compared to VO2 measured during work and rest. Varied levels of HR thermal component (ΔHRTavg range: 0-38 bpm) originating from a wide range of ambient thermal conditions, thermal clothing insulation worn, and physical load exerted during work were observed. Using raw HR significantly overestimated measured work VO2 by 30% on average (range: 1%-64%). 74% of VO2 prediction error variance was explained by the HR thermal component. VO2 estimated from corrected HR, was not statistically different from measured VO2. Work VO2 can be estimated accurately in the presence of thermal stress using Vogt et al.'s method, which can be implemented easily by the practitioner with inexpensive instruments. PMID:26851474

    The stoichiometric vanadium(Ⅳ) oxide thin films were obtained by controlling the temperature,time and pressure of annealing.The thermochromic phase transition and the IR thermochromic property of 400 nm and 900 nm VO2 thin films in the 7.5 μm-14 μm region were discussed.The derived VO2 thin film samples were characterized by Raman,XRD,XPS,AFM,SEM,and DSC.The resistance and infrared emissivity of VO2 thin films under different temperature were measured,and the thermal images of films were obtained using infrared imager.The results show that the VO2 thin film annealed at 550 ℃ for 10 hours through aqueous sol-gel process is pure and uniform.The 900 nm VO2 thin film exhibits better IR thermochromic property than the 400 nm VO2 thin film.The resistance of 900 nm VO2 film can change by 4orders of magnitude and the emissivity can change by 0.6 during the phase transition,suggesting the outstanding IR thermochromic property.The derived VO2 thin film can control its infrared radiation intensity and lower its apparent temperature actively when the real temperature increases,which may be applied in the field of energy saving,thermal control and camouflage.

    2011-02-01

    Full Text Available Transmission of VoIP over packet switching networks is one of the rapidly emerging real-time Internet Protocol. The real-time application of the Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP is growing rapidly for it is more flexible than the traditional Public Switched Telephone Networks systems (PSTN. Meanwhile, the VoIP deployment on Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs, which is based on IEEE 802.11 standards, is increasing. Currently, many schedulers have been introduced such as Weighted Fair Queueing (WFQ, Strict Priority (SP General processor sharing (GPS, Deficit Round Robin (DRR, andContention-Aware Temporally fair Scheduling (CATS. Unfortunately, the current scheduling techniques have some drawbacks on real-time applications and therefore will not be able to handle the VoIP packetsin a proper way. The objective of this research is to propose a new scheduler system model for the VoIP application named Voice Priority Queue (VPQ scheduler. The scheduler system model is to ensureefficiency by producing a higher throughput and fairness for VoIP packets. In this paper, only the First Stage of the VPQ packet scheduler and its algorithm are presented. Simulation topologies for VoIP traffic were implemented and analyzed using the Network Simulator (NS-2. The results show that this method can achieve a better and more accurate VoIP quality throughput and fairness index.

  17. Mel-cepstrum-based steganalysis for VoIP steganography

    Kraetzer, Christian; Dittmann, Jana

    2007-02-01

    Steganography and steganalysis in VoIP applications are important research topics as speech data is an appropriate cover to hide messages or comprehensive documents. In our paper we introduce a Mel-cepstrum based analysis known from speaker and speech recognition to perform a detection of embedded hidden messages. In particular we combine known and established audio steganalysis features with the features derived from Melcepstrum based analysis for an investigation on the improvement of the detection performance. Our main focus considers the application environment of VoIP-steganography scenarios. The evaluation of the enhanced feature space is performed for classical steganographic as well as for watermarking algorithms. With this strategy we show how general forensic approaches can detect information hiding techniques in the field of hidden communication as well as for DRM applications. For the later the detection of the presence of a potential watermark in a specific feature space can lead to new attacks or to a better design of the watermarking pattern. Following that the usefulness of Mel-cepstrum domain based features for detection is discussed in detail.

  18. What governs skeletal muscle VO2max? New evidence.

    Richardson, R S

    2000-01-01

    Recent investigations into the determinants of skeletal muscle maximal oxygen consumption (VO2) have provided further evidence regarding the role of O2 supply and demand in governing exercise metabolism. Specifically, four studies utilizing both animal and human exercise models are highlighted here: 1) the role of the diffusive O2 component was examined in the exercising canine gastrocnemius muscle by a rightward shift in the O2 dissociation curve while maintaining O2 delivery constant; 2) the role of peripheral and central components was examined by studying the human quadriceps muscle, already recognized to have a very high mass specific O2 delivery, under conditions of increased (hyperoxia) and reduced O2 availability (hypoxia); 3) the role of intracellular PO2 in the progressive increase in lactate efflux from skeletal muscle from submaximal to maximal effort; and finally 4) the role of intracellular PO2 itself as a determinant of maximal mitochondrial O2 consumption. In summary, these investigations illustrate 1) the importance of the diffusion gradient from blood to muscle cell; 2) illustrate that even in functionally isolated trained skeletal muscle the highest recorded metabolic rates can be increased by increasing O2 supply; 3) that a constant intracellular PO2 during graded exercise is therefore unrelated to increasing lactate efflux; and 4) that only in hyperoxia does trained human skeletal muscle approaching very high mitochondrial metabolic limits, as shown by a disproportionate increase in intracellular PO2 for the recorded change in VO2max.

    2015-03-01

    We report the results of pressure-induced phase transitions and metallization in VO2 based on synchrotron x-ray diffraction, electrical resistivity, and Raman spectroscopy. Our isothermal compression experiments at room temperature and 383 K show that the room temperature monoclinic phase (M 1 ,P 21/c ) and the high-temperature rutile phase (R ,P 42/m n m ) of VO2 undergo phase transitions to a distorted M 1 monoclinic phase (M 1' ,P 21/c ) above 13.0 GPa and to an orthorhombic phase (CaCl2-like, P n n m ) above 13.7 GPa, respectively. Upon further compression, both high-pressure phases transform into a new phase (phase X ) above 34.3 and 38.3 GPa at room temperature and 383 K, respectively. The room temperature M 1 -M 1' phase transition structurally resembles the R -CaCl2 phase transition at 383 K, suggesting a second-order displacive type of transition. Contrary to previous studies, our electrical resistivity results, Raman measurements, as well as ab initio calculations indicate that the new phase X , rather than the M 1' phase, is responsible for the metallization under pressure. The metallization mechanism is discussed based on the proposed crystal structure.

  20. Thermal properties of a Nd:LuVO4 crystal

    A Nd-doped lutetium orthovanadate Nd:LuVO4 crystal has been grown using a modified Czochralski method. The thermal properties of this crystal have been studied by measuring the thermal expansion, specific heat and thermal diffusivity. The thermal expansion coefficients are α11=1.7 x 10-6, α22=1.5 x 10-6 and α33=9.1 x 10-6/K in the temperature range of 298-573 K along the three respective crystallographic axes. The specific heat is almost linear and increases from 0.442 to 0.498 Jg-1K-1 in the measured temperature range. The thermal diffusivity is anisotropic and decreases with increasing temperature from 295 to 548 K. At room temperature the calculated thermal conductivities κ11 and κ33 are 7.96 and 9.77 Wm-1K-1, respectively. These thermal parameters of Nd:LuVO4 crystal have indicated that it is an excellent candidate laser material. (copyright 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH and Co. KGaA, Weinheim) (orig.)

    We demonstrate an electrolyte-based voltage tunable vanadium dioxide (VO{sub 2}) memory metasurface. Large spatial scale, low voltage, non-volatile switching of terahertz (THz) metasurface resonances is achieved through voltage application using an ionic gel to drive the insulator-to-metal transition in an underlying VO{sub 2} layer. Positive and negative voltage application can selectively tune the metasurface resonance into the “off” or “on” state by pushing the VO{sub 2} into a more conductive or insulating regime respectively. Compared to graphene based control devices, the relatively long saturation time of resonance modification in VO{sub 2} based devices suggests that this voltage-induced switching originates primarily from electrochemical effects related to oxygen migration across the electrolyte–VO{sub 2} interface.

    We have demonstrated large area, low voltage, non-volatile tuning of an electrolyte-based vanadium dioxide (VO2) THz memory metasurface. Using ionic gel gating, voltage is applied to drive the insulator-to-metal transition in an underlying VO2 layer. Through application of positive and negative voltages, the metasurface resonance can be switched into the ``off'' or ``on'' state by driving VO2 into a more conductive or insulating regime, respectively. As compared to our graphene-based control devices, the longer saturation time of resonance modification in VO2-based devices suggests that this voltage-induced switching originates primarily from electrochemical effects resulting from oxygen migration across the electrolyte-VO2 interface.

    The preparation of thermochromic vanadium dioxide (VO2) films in an economical way is of interest to realizing the application of smart windows. Here, we reported a successful preparation of self-assembly VO2 nanoplate films on TiO2-buffered glass by a facile hydrothermal process. The VO2 films composed of triangle-shaped plates standing on substrates exhibit a self-generated porous structure, which favors the transmission of solar light. The porosity of films is easily controlled by changing the concentration of precursor solutions. Excellent thermochromic properties are observed with visible light transmittance as high as 70.3% and solar modulating efficiency up to 9.3% in a VO2 film with porosity of ~35.9%. This work demonstrates a promising technique to promote the commercial utilization of VO2 in smart windows.

    Pal Singh, Harjit; Singh, Sarabjeet; Sarin, R. K.; Singh, Jasvir

    2012-10-01

    Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is a popular communication service nowadays. VoIP reduces the cost of call transmission by passing voice and video packets through the available bandwidth for data packets through Internet protocol. The quality of the VoIP signal is degraded due to the various network impairments. The proposed scheme, interpolated finite impulse response, is implemented as post-processor after decoding the signal in VoIP system. The performance of the proposed scheme is evaluated for various network conditions. The results of the proposed scheme are measured with the objective measurement methods for signal quality evaluation. The performance of the proposed system is compared with the existing techniques for quality improvement in VoIP system. The results show much improvement in speech quality with the proposed scheme in comparison to other similar schemes.

  11. Silica-shell encapsulation and adhesion of VO2 nanowires to glass substrates: integrating solution-derived VO2 nanowires within thermally responsive coatings

    Pelcher, Kate E.; Crawley, Matthew R.; Banerjee, Sarbajit

    2014-09-01

    The binary vanadium oxide VO2 undergoes a reversible insulator—metal phase transition in response to increasing temperature accompanied by an orders of magnitude alteration of optical transmittance; the low-temperature monoclinic phase of VO2 is infrared-transmissive, whereas the high-temperature rutile phase is infrared-reflective. This remarkable property portends applications in thermally responsive spectral mirrors that can modulate infrared transmittance as a function of temperature. Using a modified Stöber process, we demonstrate the constitution of conformal SiO2 shells around the VO2 nanowires. The SiO2 shells enhance the robustness of the VO2 nanowires towards thermal oxidation; the thickness of the shells is observed to depend on the reaction time. Notably, the deposition of conformal shells does not deleteriously impact the metal—insulator transitions of the VO2 nanowire cores. A modification of this approach allows for the VO2 nanowires to be embedded within a SiO2 matrix bonded to glass. The applied coatings are strongly adhered to glass as evaluated using standardized ASTM methods. The coatings exhibit promising thermochromic response and attenuate transmission of near-infrared radiation with increasing temperature.

    2011-05-25

    Tungsten doped vanadium oxide (VO{sub X}) thin films were prepared by oxygen annealing VO{sub X}-W-VO{sub X} sandwich layers. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and field emission scanning electron microscope were employed to characterize the compositions, crystal structures and surface morphologies, respectively. It was demonstrated that sandwich structure suppressed the crystallization of VO{sub X}, and that V{sup 5+} was reduced by diffused W atom to V{sup 4+}. The results of surface morphologies indicated that the grain arrangement of W doped vanadium dioxide film exhibited some regular patterns compared with the random grain distribution of undoped film. Electrical measurements showed that the square resistance of V{sub 2}O{sub 5} film and semiconductor-metal transition temperature of VO{sub 2}-V{sub 2}O{sub 5} film decreased obviously after W doping. In addition, thermal hysteresis loop was observed in W doped V{sub 2}O{sub 5} film with thick W middle layer. The investigation of optical properties indicated that the optical band gap of W doped V{sub 2}O{sub 5} film decreased with the increase of thickness of W middle layer, and the optical switching performance in the near-infrared range of VO{sub 2}-V{sub 2}O{sub 5} slightly weakened after W doping.

  15. Time to Exhaustion at the VO2max Velocity in Swimming: A Review

    Fernandes, Ricardo J.; Vilas-Boas, J. Paulo

    2012-01-01

    The aim of this study was to present a review on the time to exhaustion at the minimum swimming velocity corresponding to maximal oxygen consumption (TLim-vVO2max). This parameter is critical both for the aerobic power and the lactate tolerance bioenergetical training intensity zones, being fundamental to characterize it, and to point out its main determinants. The few number of studies conducted in this topic observed that swimmers were able to maintain an exercise intensity corresponding to maximal aerobic power during 215 to 260 s (elite swimmers), 230 to 260 s (high level swimmers) and 310 to 325 s (low level swimmers), and no differences between genders were reported. TLim-vVO2max main bioenergetic and functional determinants were swimming economy and VO2 slow component (direct relationship), and vVO2max, velocity at anaerobic threshold and blood lactate production (inverse relationship); when more homogeneous groups of swimmers were analysed, the inverse correlation value between TLim-vVO2max and vVO2max was not so evident. In general, TLim-vVO2max was not related to VO2max. TLim-vVO2max seems also to be influenced by stroking parameters, with a direct relationship to stroke length and stroke index, and an inverse correlation with stroke rate. Assessing TLim-vVO2max, together with the anaerobic threshold and the biomechanical general parameters, will allow a larger spectrum of testing protocols application, helping to build more objective and efficient training programs.

    Graphical abstract: This effect of doping concentration on the phase transition temperature of VO{sub 2} films demonstrates that the phase transition temperature is decreasing along with the increase of the Ce dopant concentrations. After doping Ce, the transition temperature of VO{sub 2} film changes appreciably. Highlights: ► Ce-doped VO{sub 2} films were prepared on muscovite substrate by inorganic sol–gel method for the first time. ► The cerium existing in the VO{sub 2} films in the form of Ce{sup 4+} and Ce{sup 3+} was substituted for part of V atoms in the lattice. ► Ce doping could remarkably reduce the particle size of the Ce-doped films compared with undoped films. ► The phase transition temperature of Ce-doped VO{sub 2} films decreased appreciably with maintaining high-quality phase transition. - Abstract: Mixture of cerium (III) nitrate hexahydrate and vanadium pentaoxide powder were used as precursor to prepare Ce-doped VO{sub 2} films on the muscovite substrate by inorganic sol–gel method. SEM, XRD and XPS were used to investigate the morphologies and structures of VO{sub 2} films. The results show that the VO{sub 2} films grow on the muscovite substrate with preferred orientated (0 1 1) plane and the Ce exists in the form of Ce{sup 4+} and Ce{sup 3+} replacing part of V atoms in the lattice. The infrared transmittance change was measured from room temperature to the temperature above the metal–insulator transition. The films have excellent thermochromic performance. The metal–insulator transition temperature of VO{sub 2} films changes appreciably with Ce doped, which decreases by 4.5 °C per 1 at.% doping. Furthermore, Ce doping could remarkably reduce the particle size of VO{sub 2} films.

  17. High-pressure transformations of cerium(III)orthovanadate(V), CeVO4

    The polymorphism of CeVO4 was investigated at high pressures and temperatures in a Belt-type high-pressure apparatus. In addition to the normal-pressure modification CeVO4-I with zircon-type structure two high-pressure modifications have been found, viz. monazite-type CeVO4-II and scheelite-type CeVO4-III. CeVO4-II is stable between 1 bar and 30 kbar at 1300deg C. Its region of existence decreases rapidly at lower temperatures. From the observed p,T-relations for the I-II and I-III transformations a triple point CeVO4-I,II,III at about 27 kbar, 500deg C can be estimated. For kinetic reasons, however, the experimental determination of phase relations becomes difficult at temperatures below 600deg C. The crystal structures of CeVO4-I and -II have been refined from single-crystal data. Crystallographic data for the three modifications are given and discussed (CeVO4-I: I41/amd, a=7.383(1) A, c=6.485(1) A, Z=4; CeVO4-II: P21/n, a=7.003(1) A, b=7.227(1) A, c=6.685(1) A, β=105.13(1)deg, Z=4; CeVO4-III: I41/a, a=5.1645(2) A, c=11.8482(7) A, Z=4).

    Full Text Available The inactive biomass of fungus Aspergillus niger O-5 obtained in Cuba was characterized as sorbent of Pb2+ by several structural analysis and others techniques. In addition, the biomass was studied for the separation / preconcentration of Pb2+ from aqueous solution. The maximum biosorption capacity was obtained for the contact time of 30 min and pH 5. The kinetic of sorption process occurred according to the model of Ho. The Freundlich or Langmuir models suitably described the experimental adsorption isotherms. The biomass can be used as sorbent for Pb2+ with a maximum capacity of 4.7 - 6.2 mg g-1. The pretreatment with NaOH solution improved its sorption capacity.

    2011-01-01

    Inconsistencies about dynamic asymmetry between the on- and off- transient responses in oxygen uptake are found in the literature. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to characterize the oxygen uptake off-transient kinetics during a maximal 200-m front crawl effort, as examining the degree to which the on/off regularity of the oxygen uptake kinetics response was preserved. Eight high level male swimmers performed a 200-m front crawl at maximal speed during which oxygen uptake was directly measured through breath-by-breath oxymetry (averaged every 5 s). This apparatus was connected to the swimmer by a low hydrodynamic resistance respiratory snorkel and valve system. Results: The on- and off-transient phases were symmetrical in shape (mirror image) once they were adequately fitted by a single-exponential regression models, and no slow component for the oxygen uptake response was developed. Mean (± SD) peak oxygen uptake was 69.0 (± 6.3) mL·kg-1·min-1, significantly correlated with time constant of the off- transient period (r = 0.76, p < 0.05) but not with any of the other oxygen off-transient kinetic parameters studied. A direct relationship between time constant of the off-transient period and mean swimming speed of the 200-m (r = 0.77, p < 0.05), and with the amplitude of the fast component of the effort period (r = 0.72, p < 0.05) were observed. The mean amplitude and time constant of the off-transient period values were significantly greater than the respective on- transient. In conclusion, although an asymmetry between the on- and off kinetic parameters was verified, both the 200-m effort and the respectively recovery period were better characterized by a single exponential regression model. Key points The VO2 slow component was not observed in the recovery period of swimming extreme efforts; The on and off transient periods were better fitted by a single exponential function, and so, these effort and recovery periods of swimming extreme efforts are

    Full Text Available En los sistemas de pasturas; la productividad de la pradera puede estar influenciada por el manejo; debido a su impacto sobre los microorganismos del suelo y el reciclaje de nutrientes. El objetivo de este trabajo fue evaluar la biomasa microbiana (BM del suelo asociada al nitrógeno (BMN; carbono (BMC y la actividad ureasa (AU en una pradera permanente del sur de Chile. Entre la primavera de 2005 y el invierno de 2006 fueron evaluados dos sistemas de pastoreo: pastoreo intenso (PI; pastoreo suave (PS y un tratamiento control (C. El diseño fue en bloques al azar con tres repeticiones. En relación a los valores promedios medidos de las variables en pre y post pastoreo; se produjo un incremento en los contenidos de CB en un 21,8 y 8,6% para PI y PS; mientras que en el control fue sólo de 1,9%. Los contenidos de NB también fueron incrementados en un 16 y 19% para PI y PS; respectivamente en comparación con el control (4%. La actividad ureasa aumentó en 13 y 27% para PI y PS; respectivamente en comparación con el control (5%. El pastoreo; produce un flujo más alto de residuos orgánicos en el suelo; lo que estimula la actividad de la biomasa microbiana y; por tanto; aumentó la AU y los contenidos de CB y NB. Esto sugiere que; en los sistemas de pastoreo; se mejora la fertilidad biológica de los suelos y la disponibilidad de nutrientes.In pasture systems, management practices can affect pasture productivity differently due to their impact on soil microorganisms and nutrient cycling.

    Full Text Available El uso de fertilizantes minerales en cultivos de Cymbopogon martini Roxb. (Palmarosa con el fin de incrementar la biomasa y el rendimiento de aceite esencial (AE es una práctica cada vez más frecuente. Este aceite es rico en geraniol y acetato de geranilo, moléculas con alto valor en las industrias de productos cosméticos y farmacéutica. Las plantas fueron obtenidas del Centro Nacional de Investigación Agroindustrial de Plantas Aromaticas y Medicinales de la Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS (Cenivam (07° 08' 31.68"N, 73° 07' 06.14O; 988 m.s.n.m., Santander, Colombia. El objetivo del estudio fue evaluar la productividad de biomasa y analizar la calidad y el rendimiento de los aceites esenciales (AE de este cultivo con la aplicación de tres tipos de fertilizantes químico: Nutrimon® 14-14-14, NPK granulado (10% N, 14% P2O5 , 14% K2O, en dosis de 2, 4 y 6 g/planta, más un tratamiento con 400 g de un fertilizante orgánico,. Se utilizó un diseño de bloques completos al azar, con trece tratamientos y tres cosechas de tres plantas cada una como repeticiones. Los datos fueron sometidos a análisis de variancia con comparación de las medias por la prueba de Tukey a 5% de probabilidad. No se observaron correlaciones entre biomasa y rendimiento del AE en función del tipo del fertilizante aplicado, lo que sugirió que los tratamientos que incrementaron la producción de biomasa no necesariamente representaron mayor rendimiento del AE y viceversa. Se encontró que los fertilizantes orgánicos son ideales para este cultivo, ya que favorecieron rendimientos relativamente altos en aceite, con altos porcentajes de geraniol y acetato de geranilo.

  3. Performability Aspects of the Atlas Vo; Using Lmbench Suite

    Georgatos, Fotis; Kouretis, John

    2008-01-01

    The ATLAS Virtual Organization is grid's largest Virtual Organization which is currently in full production stage. Hereby a case is being made that a user working within that VO is going to face a wide spectrum of different systems, whose heterogeneity is enough to count as "orders of magnitude" according to a number of metrics; including integer/float operations, memory throughput (STREAM) and communication latencies. Furthermore, the spread of performance does not appear to follow any known distribution pattern, which is demonstrated in graphs produced during May 2007 measurements. It is implied that the current practice where either "all-WNs-are-equal" or, the alternative of SPEC-based rating used by LCG/EGEE is an oversimplification which is inappropriate and expensive from an operational point of view, therefore new techniques are needed for optimal grid resources allocation.

  4. A structured approach to VO reconfigurations through Policies

    Reiff-Marganiec, Stephan

    2012-01-01

    One of the strength of Virtual Organisations is their ability to dynamically and rapidly adapt in response to changing environmental conditions. Dynamic adaptability has been studied in other system areas as well and system management through policies has crystallized itself as a very prominent solution in system and network administration. However, these areas are often concerned with very low-level technical aspects. Previous work on the APPEL policy language has been aimed at dynamically adapting system behaviour to satisfy end-user demands and - as part of STPOWLA - APPEL was used to adapt workflow instances at runtime. In this paper we explore how the ideas of APPEL and STPOWLA can be extended from workflows to the wider scope of Virtual Organisations. We will use a Travel Booking VO as example.

  5. The heart rate VO2 relationship of aerobic dance: a comparison of target heart rate methods.

    Scharff-Olson, M; Williford, H N; Smith, F H

    1992-12-01

    The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between heart rate (HR) and oxygen consumption (VO2) for aerobic dance exercise. Therefore, eleven females completed 20 minutes of aerobic dance with continuous monitoring of HR and VO2. These physiological responses were analyzed with correlation/regression techniques. The results showed that for aerobic dance to produce a response in excess of 50% of VO2 max, the target HR must be approximately 80% of the age-predicted HR max or greater. In contrast, previously reported data for treadmill running shows that 50% of VO2 max is achieved at approximately 65% of age-predicted HR max in females. The maximum heart rate reserve (Karvonen) method was also found to underestimate the actual VO2 of AD. With the Karvonen method, the target heart rate must approximate 65% of maximum HR reserve in order to elicit a VO2 response which is representative of 50% of VO2 max. These data support recent research which illustrates that target heart rate prescriptions derived from treadmill testing may fail to accurately place AD participants in the recommended training zone.

  6. Preparation and characterization of fly ash cenospheres supported CuO–BiVO4 heterojunction composite

    Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • Novel CuO–BiVO4/FACs heterojunction composites have been synthesized. • CuO–BiVO4 are loaded on the surface of lightweight hollow microspheres. • The CuO–BiVO4/FACs exhibit enhanced absorption in the visible light region. • The CuO–BiVO4/FACs show efficient photocatalytic activities. • The composites are floatable and can be recovered easily. - Abstract: Novel fly ash cenospheres supported CuO–BiVO4 heterojunction composites (CuO–BiVO4/FACs) were prepared by modified metalorganic decomposition and impregnation methods. The as-prepared samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), and UV–vis diffused reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) techniques. The XPS and SEM analyses indicated that Cu was present as CuO dispersed on the surface of BiVO4. The DRS spectra revealed that the composites had improved optical adsorption in the visible light region, and the composites exhibited enhanced photocatalytic activity for methylene blue (MB) degradation under visible light irradiation. It was found that the 5 wt% CuO-loaded composite showed the highest photocatalytic activity for MB dye wastewater treatment. FACs, a by-product generated in coal-firing power plants, were used as a low cost support which favored phase separation after the reaction owing to their low density

  7. Handover Management for VoWLAN Based on Estimation of AP Queue Length and Frame Retries

    Niswar, Muhammad; Kashihara, Shigeru; Tsukamoto, Kazuya; Kadobayashi, Youki; Yamaguchi, Suguru

    Switching a communication path from one Access Point (AP) to another in inter-domain WLANs is a critical challenge for delay-sensitive applications such as Voice over IP (VoIP) because communication quality during handover (HO) is more likely to be deteriorated. To maintain VoIP quality during HO, we need to solve many problems. In particular, in bi-directional communication such as VoIP, an AP becomes a bottleneck with the increase of VoIP calls. As a result, packets queued in the AP buffer may experience a large queuing delay or packet losses due to increase in queue length or buffer overflow, thereby causing the degradation of VoIP quality for the Mobile Nodes (MNs) side. To avoid this degradation, MNs need to appropriately and autonomously execute HO in response to the change in wireless network condition, i.e., the deterioration of wireless link quality and the congestion state at the AP. In this paper, we propose an HO decision strategy considering frame retries, AP queue length, and transmission rate at an MN for maintaining VoIP quality during HO. Through simulation experiments, we then show that our proposed method can maintain VoIP quality during HO by properly detecting the wireless network condition.

  8. The VO-Dance web application at the IA2 data center

    Molinaro, Marco; Knapic, Cristina; Smareglia, Riccardo

    2012-09-01

    Italian center for Astronomical Archives (IA2, http://ia2.oats.inaf.it) is a national infrastructure project of the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (Istituto Nazionale di AstroFisica, INAF) that provides services for the astronomical community. Besides data hosting for the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) Corporation, the Galileo National Telescope (Telescopio Nazionale Galileo, TNG) Consortium and other telescopes and instruments, IA2 offers proprietary and public data access through user portals (both developed and mirrored) and deploys resources complying the Virtual Observatory (VO) standards. Archiving systems and web interfaces are developed to be extremely flexible about adding new instruments from other telescopes. VO resources publishing, along with data access portals, implements the International Virtual Observatory Alliance (IVOA) protocols providing astronomers with new ways of analyzing data. Given the large variety of data flavours and IVOA standards, the need for tools to easily accomplish data ingestion and data publishing arises. This paper describes the VO-Dance tool, that IA2 started developing to address VO resources publishing in a dynamical way from already existent database tables or views. The tool consists in a Java web application, potentially DBMS and platform independent, that stores internally the services' metadata and information, exposes restful endpoints to accept VO queries for these services and dynamically translates calls to these endpoints to SQL queries coherent with the published table or view. In response to the call VO-Dance translates back the database answer in a VO compliant way.

  9. Terbium-Doped VO2 Thin Films: Reduced Phase Transition Temperature and Largely Enhanced Luminous Transmittance.

    2016-01-26

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) is a well-known thermochromic material with large IR modulating ability, promising for energy-saving smart windows. The main drawbacks of VO2 are its high phase transition temperature (τ(c) = 68°C), low luminous transmission (T(lum)), and weak solar modulating ability (ΔT(sol)). In this paper, the terbium cation (Tb(3+)) doping was first reported to reduce τ(c) and increase T(lum) of VO2 thin films. Compared with pristine VO2, 2 at. % doping level gives both enhanced T(lum) and ΔT(sol) from 45.8% to 54.0% and 7.7% to 8.3%, respectively. The T(lum) increases with continuous Tb(3+) doping and reaches 79.4% at 6 at. % doping level, representing ∼73.4% relative increment compared with pure VO2. This has surpassed the best reported doped VO2 thin films. The enhanced thermochromic properties is meaningful for smart window applications of VO2 materials. PMID:26729057

    Bismuth vanadate (BiVO4) has been widely regarded as a promising photoanode material for photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting because of its low cost, its high stability against photocorrosion, and its relatively narrow band gap of 2.4 eV. However, the achieved performance of the BiVO4 photoanode remains unsatisfactory to date because its short carrier diffusion length restricts the total thickness of the BiVO4 film required for sufficient light absorption. We addressed the issue by deposition of nanoporous Mo-doped BiVO4 (Mo:BiVO4) on an engineered cone-shaped nanostructure, in which the Mo:BiVO4 layer with a larger effective thickness maintains highly efficient charge separation and high light absorption capability, which can be further enhanced by multiple light scattering in the nanocone structure. As a result, the nanocone/Mo:BiVO4/Fe(Ni)OOH photoanode exhibits a high water-splitting photocurrent of 5.82 ± 0.36 mA cm(-2) at 1.23 V versus the reversible hydrogen electrode under 1-sun illumination. We also demonstrate that the PEC cell in tandem with a single perovskite solar cell exhibits unassisted water splitting with a solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency of up to 6.2%. PMID:27386565

    Recently, we have been able to synthesize the new copper-orthovanadate AgCuVO{sub 4}. The crystal structure was determined by single crystal x-ray diffraction. AgCuVO{sub 4} comprises Cu{sup 2+} ions coordinated by oxygen in a square-planar fashion, similar to LiCuVO{sub 4}, which has been identified as a multiferroic material recently. Whereas in LiCuVO{sub 4} the square-planar [CuO{sub 4}] units are connected via edges to form chains along the crystallographic b axis, the [CuO{sub 4}] units in AgCuVO{sub 4} are connected via corners resulting in Cu-O-Cu chains along the b-axis. The static magnetic susceptibility of AgCuVO{sub 4} can be described quite well within a Bonner-Fisher spin-chain scenario. In order to gain microscopic insight into the the electronic structure and the magnetic exchange interactions of AgCuVO{sub 4}, we performed LDA band structure calculations. To take the strong Coulomb repulsion at the Cu site into account, we mapped the LDA results onto a tight binding model and subsequently onto a Heisenberg model. In agreement with the experimental data, we find pronounced one-dimensional magnetic exchange along the b axis with small inter-chain couplings.

  13. Structural, photophysical and photocatalytic properties of novel Bi2AlVO7

    Bi2AlVO7 was prepared by solid-state reaction technique for the first time and the structural and photocatalytic properties of Bi2AlVO7 and Bi2InTaO7 were investigated. The results showed that Bi2AlVO7 crystallized in the tetragonal crystal system with space group I4/mmm. In addition, the band gaps of Bi2AlVO7 and Bi2InTaO7 were estimated to be about 2.06 and 2.81 eV. The photocatalytic degradation of aqueous methylene blue (MB) dye with Bi2AlVO7 or Bi2InTaO7 as catalyst was investigated under visible light irradiation. Bi2AlVO7 showed higher photocatalytic activity compared with Bi2InTaO7 for photocatalytic degradation of MB under visible light irradiation. Complete removal of aqueous MB dye was realized after visible light irradiation for 160 min with Bi2AlVO7 as the photocatalyst. The reduction of the total organic carbon (TOC) and the formation of inorganic products, SO42- and NO3- revealed the continuous mineralization of aqueous MB dye during the photocatalytic process. The possible photocatalytic degradation pathway of aqueous MB dye was revealed under visible light irradiation.

    Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer A facile strategy is designed to deposit leaf-like BiVO{sub 4} lamellas on graphene sheet. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Graphene oxide is reduced to graphene in the hydrothermal reaction process. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer BiVO{sub 4}-graphene system shows high catalytic effects under visible light irradiation. - Abstract: A BiVO{sub 4}-graphene photocatalyst was prepared by a facile one-step hydrothermal method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Raman spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques. The results show that the graphene sheets in this catalyst are exfoliated and decorated by leaf-like BiVO{sub 4} lamellas.

  16. Lithium-inserted vanadium dioxide (LixVO2) thin films

    Khan, Mohammad S. R.

    1996-04-01

    Thermochromic switching between a low-temperature and high-temperature less transparent state is possible in thin films based on vanadium dioxide (VO2). The critical temperature Tc at which the transition takes place in VO2 is on the order of 68 degrees Celsius which can be depressed towards a comfortable temperature by several techniques, including dopants. Dopants can be inserted by electrochemical means. This work is an exploratory study of the electrochromism of LixVO2 with a view to 'smart window' applications. Thin films of LixVO2 (0 less than or equal to x less than or equal to 0.43) were made by reactive sputtering and annealing electrolyte of LiClO4 and propylene carbonate. A maximum lithium content of x equals 0.43 was accomplished. Optical spectral response at wavelength pertinent to solar radiation was reported. Lithium insertion increased the transmittance gradually and reversibly i.e. LixVO2 showed electrochromism and bleached under Li insertion. LixVO2 also showed thermochroism, although to a smaller degree than VO2 and was most transparent at low temperature. Temperature- dependent electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power measurements were also performed. A conductivity transition by approximately 3 orders of magnitude was seen at approximately 60 degrees Celsius in VO2. This transition decreased in proportion with the amount of Li intercalation and was less than one order of magnitude in Li0.43VO2. Lithiation also decreased Tc by a few degrees Celsius. The thermoelectric power showed a well defined increase when Tc was exceeded.

  17. Synthesis and photocatalytic performances of BiVO4 by ammonia co-precipitation process

    This paper reports the preparation and photocatalytic performance of Bismuth vanadate (BiVO4) by a facile and inexpensive approach. An amorphous BiVO4 was first prepared by a co-precipitation process from aqueous solutions of Bi(NO3)3 and NH4VO3 using ammonia. Followed by heating treatment at various temperatures, the amorphous phase converted to crystalline BiVO4 with a structure between monoclinic and tetragonal scheelite. The crystallization of BiVO4 occurred at about 523 K, while the nanocrystalline BiVO4 were formed with a heat-treatment of lower than 673 K. However, when the heat-treatment was carried out at 773 K, the accumulation of nanocrystals to bulk particles was observed. The photocatalytic performances of the materials were investigated by O2 evolution under visible-light, and MB decomposition under solar simulator. The results demonstrated that the crystalline structure is still the vital factor for the activities of both reactions. However, the crystallinity of BiVO4 gives a major influence on the activity of O2 evolution, whereas the surface area, plays an important role for photocatalytic MB decomposition. - Abstract: BiVO4 was prepared by a co-precipitation process using aqueous ammonia solution, followed by heating treatment at various temperatures.

  18. Lasing of Yb in a mixed YGdVO4 crystal with bistability and polarization switching

    Liu, Junhai; Zhang, Huaijin; Mateos, Xavier; Han, Wenjuan; Petrov, Valentin

    2009-02-01

    The orthovanadate crystals YVO4, GdVO4, and LuVO4 attract much attention as promising host materials for the trivalent Yb-ion since such crystals are characterized by large absorption and emission cross sections, broad absorption and emission bands, and higher thermal conductivities than most of the other Yb-doped materials. More interestingly, their laser operation is characterized by optical bistability, apparently a unique feature of Yb-doped vanadates, not found so far in other Yb-lasers or even in other solid-state lasers. The optically "passive" vanadates, YVO4, GdVO4, and LuVO4, as well as the stoichiometric YbVO4 exhibit the same zircon structure and continuous isostructural solid solutions can be expected. The absorption and emission spectra of Yb0.0054:Y0.3481Gd0.6465VO4, a specific compound in the mixed Ybt:YxGd1-x-tVO4 series, inherit the spectroscopic features of both Yb:YVO4 and Yb:GdVO4. We found that this Yb-doped solid solution also displays optical bistability in continuous-wave (cw) laser operation. The strongly pronounced bistability extends from Pabs=1.9 W to Pabs=3.4 W while the output power amounts to 0.98 W at the upthreshold. Distinct from the previously reported Yb:LuVO4 laser, coexistence and switching of the σ and π polarization states occur along with emission wavelength shift in the bistability region upon decreasing the pump power. Increasing the output coupling reduces the bistability region while expanding the coexistence region for the σ and π polarization states.

  1. Equivalent circuit for VO2 phase change material film in reconfigurable frequency selective surfaces

    We developed equivalent circuits of phase change materials based on vanadium dioxide (VO2) thin films. These circuits are used to model VO2 thin films for reconfigurable frequency selective surfaces (FSSs). This is important as it provides a way for designing complex structures. A reconfigurable FSS filter using VO2 ON/OFF switches is designed demonstrating −60 dB isolation between the states. This filter is used to provide the transmission and reflection responses of the FSS in the frequency range of 0.1–0.6 THz. The comparison between equivalent circuit and full-wave simulation shows excellent agreement

    Sousa, Ana; Ribeiro, João; Sousa, Marisa; Vilas-Boas, João Paulo; Fernandes, Ricardo J.

    2014-01-01

    Prior exercise has the potential to enhance subsequent performance by accelerating the oxygen uptake (VO2) kinetics. The present study investigated the effects of two different intensities of prior exercise on pulmonary VO2 kinetics and exercise time during subsequent exhaustive rowing exercise. It was hypothesized that in prior heavy, but not prior moderate exercise condition, overall VO2 kinetics would be faster and the VO2 primary amplitude would be higher, leading to longer exercise time at VO2max. Six subjects (mean ± SD; age: 22.9±4.5 yr; height: 181.2±7.1 cm and body mass: 75.5±3.4 kg) completed square-wave transitions to 100% of VO2max from three different conditions: without prior exercise, with prior moderate and heavy exercise. VO2 was measured using a telemetric portable gas analyser (K4b2, Cosmed, Rome, Italy) and the data were modelled using either mono or double exponential fittings. The use of prior moderate exercise resulted in a faster VO2 pulmonary kinetics response (τ1 = 13.41±3.96 s), an improved performance in the time to exhaustion (238.8±50.2 s) and similar blood lactate concentrations ([La−]) values (11.8±1.7 mmol.L−1) compared to the condition without prior exercise (16.0±5.56 s, 215.3±60.1 s and 10.7±1.2 mmol.L−1, for τ1, time sustained at VO2max and [La−], respectively). Performance of prior heavy exercise, although useful in accelerating the VO2 pulmonary kinetics response during a subsequent time to exhaustion exercise (τ1 = 9.18±1.60 s), resulted in a shorter time sustained at VO2max (155.5±46.0 s), while [La−] was similar (13.5±1.7 mmol.L−1) compared to the other two conditions. Although both prior moderate and heavy exercise resulted in a faster pulmonary VO2 kinetics response, only prior moderate exercise lead to improved rowing performance. PMID:24404156

    VO2-based films are thermochromic and exhibit high or low infrared transmittance when the temperature is below or above a critical temperature. The thermochromic switching is passive and reversible, and therefore VO2 based films are promising for energy-efficient window appli­cations. However the practicaluse of VO2 for energy-efficient windows has long been hampered by low luminous transmittance and low solar energy transmittance modulation.

    An explorative study was performed on sputter-deposited thermochromic VO 2 films with top coatings of Al oxide and Al nitride. The films were exposed to dry air at a high temperature. Bare 80-nm-thick VO 2 films rapidly converted to non-thermochromic V 2 O 5 under the chosen conditions. Al oxide top coatings protected the underlying VO 2 films and, expectedly, increased film thickness yielded improved protection. Specifically, it was found that a 30-nm-thick sputter-deposited Al oxide top coa...

    This paper proposes a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) session capacity expansion method that uses periodic packet transmission suppression control for wireless LANs. The proposed method expands the VoIP session capacity of an AP without critically degrading the QoS (Quality of Service) of all stations. Simulation results show the proposed method with 0.5% packet suppression control on each station expands a VoIP session capacity by up to 5% compared to a legacy method while satisfying required QoS for all stations.

    The phonon modes of a pure ErVO4 crystal were determined at room temperature using Raman scattering methods, and the observed frequencies were assigned according to group theory in terms of the internal modes of the VO43- ions and the external modes of the Er(VO4) lattice. The assignments of the phonon modes match well with the overall phonon systematics of the rare-earth orthovanadate series, and the results presented here reinforce the general trend of bonding strength in the zircon series of RVO4, RAsO4, and RPO4 materials.

    The performance of MnV2O6 (MnV) and its [(Mn(Bpy))(VO3)2]≈(H2O)1.16 (MnBpy) and [(Mn(Bpy)0.5)(VO3)2]≈(H2O)0.62(MnBpy0.5) hybrid derivative compounds was investigated against sodium and lithium counter electrodes. For MnV2O6 stable capacities of 850 mAh/g were achieved in lithium cells, the best value reported so far. The whole capacity is ascribed to a conversion reaction in which the amorphization of the compounds takes place. No significant differences in the capacities for the inorganic compound and the hybrid ones were observed. Interestingly, the potential hysteresis decreases in the hybrid compounds. The difference between Li and Na cell capacity most probably comes from the difference of standard potential of the two redox couples Li+/Li and Na+/Na of about ca. 0.3 V leading to an incomplete conversion reaction and thus lowers capacity in the case of Na cells. The Raman and IR ex-situ experiments after cycling indicate that the bipyridine organic ligands are completely decomposed during the electrochemical testing. The IR studies in MnV inorganic and MnBpy and MnBpy0.5 hybrid electrodes after the electrochemical cycling, suggest that the SEI formation and bipyridine degradation give rise to different aliphatic compounds. - Graphical abstract: The electrochemical performance of [(Mn(Bpy))(VO3)2]≈(H2O)1.16 and [(Mn(Bpy)0.5)(VO3)2]≈(H2O)0.62 against sodium and lithium counter electrodes give rise to the structural collapse of the initial compounds. The IR and Raman studies show that the Bpy organic ligand is completely decomposed during the during the electrochemical testing. However, after the amorphization stable capacities as high as 850 mAh/g for lithium cells were achieved. - Highlights: • We test the lithium and sodium insertion in hybrid brannerites. • Capacities as large as 850 mAh/g were obtained for the Li cells. • The capacity and good cycling is ascribed to a conversion reaction of the electrodes. • The Bpy molecule of the hybrid

  19. Business Collaborations in Grids: The BREIN Architectural Principals and VO Model

    Taylor, Steve; Surridge, Mike; Laria, Giuseppe; Ritrovato, Pierluigi; Schubert, Lutz

    We describe the business-oriented architectural principles of the EC FP7 project “BREIN” for service-based computing. The architecture is founded on principles of how real businesses interact to mutual benefit, and we show how these can be applied to SOA and Grid computing. We present building blocks that can be composed in many ways to produce different value systems and supply chains for the provision of computing services over the Internet. We also introduce the complementary BREIN VO concept, which is centric to, and managed by, a main contractor who bears the responsibility for the whole VO. The BREIN VO has an execution lifecycle for the creation and operation of the VO, and we have related this to an application-focused workflow involving steps that provide real end-user value. We show how this can be applied to an engineering simulation application and how the workflow can be adapted should the need arise.

  1. Roles of grain boundaries on the semiconductor to metal phase transition of VO2 thin films

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) thin films with controlled grain sizes are deposited on amorphous glass substrates by pulsed laser deposition. The grain boundaries (GBs) are found as the dominating defects in the thin films. The semiconductor to metal transition (SMT) properties of VO2 thin films are characterized and correlated to the GB density. The VO2 films with lower GB density exhibit a sharper SMT with a larger transition amplitude. A high resolution TEM study at GB area reveals the disordered atomic structures along the boundaries and the distorted crystal lattices near the boundaries. The VO2 SMT amplitude and sharpness could be directly related to these defects at and near the boundaries

  2. High-temperature behavior of vanadyl pyrophosphate (VO)2P2O7

    (VO)2P2O7 has been studied at high temperatures by in situ X-ray powder diffraction in an inert atmosphere. Lattice parameters indicate an anisotropic thermal expansion up to Tc=214-bar C, followed by an approximately isotropic expansion up to 490-bar C. It is proposed that Tc is the temperature of a second-order phase transition between the known room temperature form with space group Pca21 and a high-temperature form with space group Pcab. Above 490-bar C a minority phase develops in the sample that was identified as the V3+ containing compound V4(P2O7)3, while the anisotropic expansion along a suggests that stoichiometric (VO)2P2O7 transforms into (VO)2P2O7+x with interstitial oxygen located between the layers. With an onset at 706-bar C all of the (VO)2P2O7 transforms into VPO4

    Full Text Available The VO2 (B was synthesized via a simple solvothermal route at 160oC in ethanol. The initial discharge capacity of VO2 (B anode, in saturated aqueous solution of LiNO3, was 177 mAh g-1 at a current rate of 50 mA g-1. After 50 cycles capacity fade was 4%, but from 20th-50th cycle no capacity drop was observed. The VO2 (B has shown very good cyclability at current rate of even 1000 mA g-1 with initial discharge capacity of 92 mAh g-1. The excellent electrochemical performance of VO2 (B was attributed to the stability of micro-nano structures to repeated intercalation /deintercalation process, very good electronic conductivity as well as the very low charge transfer resistance in the aqueous electrolyte.

  10. Effect of annealing temperature on the structure and electrochemistry of LiVO3

    Graphical abstract: Display Omitted -- Abstract: Single-phase LiVO3 with a monoclinic structure (S.G. C2/c) was prepared by mechanochemically assisted solid state synthesis using V2O5 and Li2CO3 as raw materials. The reagent mixtures, activated by means of a high-energy planetary mill AGO-2, were annealed at 350, 450 and 550 °C in air. Thus-prepared LiVO3 samples were characterized by XRD using the Rietveld refinement, SEM, TEM, HRTEM, FTIR, Raman spectroscopy, 6Li and 51V MAS NMR spectroscopy, XPS, galvanostatic cycling, and GITT. The average particle size increases from ∼100 nm for LiVO3-350 °C to some micrometers for LiVO3-550 °C along with the degree of crystallinity. XRD, FTIR, 6Li and 51V MAS NMR reveal the largest degree of structural distortion for the LiVO3-350 °C sample. Ex situ XRD confirms a biphasic mechanism of the initial lithium intercalation in LiVO3 and a single-phase mechanism for a fully lithiated Li2VO3. The rock salt type structure of Li2VO3 (S.G. Fd-3m) keeps unchanged during the following cycling; a lattice parameter a increases upon delithiation from 8.22 Å to 8.29 Å (2.5%). According to XPS, lithiation of LiVO3 is accompanied by V5+/V4+ redox couple. The nanosized LiVO3-350 °C sample exhibits the largest initial discharge capacity (317 mA h g−1), however followed by a progressive decay due to the presence of structural distortion. On the contrary, LiVO3-450 °C sample is characterized by better capacity retention and high-rate performance. The average value of Li-ion diffusion coefficient determined from the GITT measurements is the 10−12 cm2 s−1; it does not noticeably change vs. Li content

  11. Mobile telephones: a comparison of radiated power between 3G VoIP calls and 3G VoCS calls.

    Jovanovic, Dragan; Bragard, Guillaume; Picard, Dominique; Chauvin, Sébastien

    2015-01-01

    The purpose of this study is to assess the mean RF power radiated by mobile telephones during voice calls in 3G VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) using an application well known to mobile Internet users, and to compare it with the mean power radiated during voice calls in 3G VoCS (Voice over Circuit Switch) on a traditional network. Knowing that the specific absorption rate (SAR) is proportional to the mean radiated power, the user's exposure could be clearly identified at the same time. Three 3G (High Speed Packet Access) smartphones from three different manufacturers, all dual-band for GSM (900 MHz, 1800 MHz) and dual-band for UMTS (900 MHz, 1950 MHz), were used between 28 July and 04 August 2011 in Paris (France) to make 220 two-minute calls on a mobile telephone network with national coverage. The places where the calls were made were selected in such a way as to describe the whole range of usage situations of the mobile telephone. The measuring equipment, called "SYRPOM", recorded the radiation power levels and the frequency bands used during the calls with a sampling rate of 20,000 per second. In the framework of this study, the mean normalised power radiated by a telephone in 3G VoIP calls was evaluated at 0.75% maximum power of the smartphone, compared with 0.22% in 3G VoCS calls. The very low average power levels associated with use of 3G devices with VoIP or VoCS support the view that RF exposure resulting from their use is far from exceeding the basic restrictions of current exposure limits in terms of SAR.

  12. Resistance modulation in VO2 nanowires induced by an electric field via air-gap gates

    Kanki, Teruo; Chikanari, Masashi; Wei, Tingting; Tanaka, Hidekazu; The Institute of Scientific; Industrial Research Team

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) shows huge resistance change with metal-insulator transition (MIT) at around room temperature. Controlling of the MIT by applying an electric field is a topical ongoing research toward the realization of Mott transistor. In this study, we have successfully switched channel resistance of VO2 nano-wire channels by a pure electrostatic field effect using a side-gate-type field-effect transistor (SG-FET) viaair gap and found that single crystalline VO2 nanowires and the channels with narrower width enhance transport modulation rate. The rate of change in resistance ((R0-R)/R, where R0 and R is the resistance of VO2 channel with off state and on state gate voltage (VG) , respectively) was 0.42 % at VG = 30 V in in-plane poly-crystalline VO2 channels on Al2O3(0001) substrates, while the rate in single crystalline channels on TiO2 (001) substrates was 3.84 %, which was 9 times higher than that using the poly-crystalline channels. With reducing wire width from 3000 nm to 400 nm of VO2 on TiO2 (001) substrate, furthermore, resistance modulation ratio enhanced from 0.67 % to 3.84 %. This change can not be explained by a simple free-electron model. In this presentation, we will compare the electronic properties between in-plane polycrystalline VO2 on Al2O3 (0001) and single crystalline VO2 on TiO2 (001) substrates, and show experimental data in detail..

    2013-05-14

    A physical vapor deposition-based route for the fabrication of VO2 nanoparticles is demonstrated, consisting of reactive sputtering and vapor condensation at elevated pressures. The oxidation of vanadium atoms is an efficient heterogeneous nucleation method, leading to high nanoparticle throughtput. Fine control of the nanoparticle size and composition is obtained. Post growth annealing leads to crystalline VO2 nanoparticles with optimum thermocromic and plasmonic properties.

    Voltage-controlled switching in lateral VO{sub 2} nano-gap junctions with different gap lengths and thermal properties was investigated. The effect of Joule heating on the phase transition was found to be strongly influenced by the device geometry, the contact material, and the current. Our results indicate that the VO{sub 2} phase transition was likely initiated electronically, which was sometimes followed by a secondary thermally induced transition.

  18. Effect of Free Bandwidth on VoIP Performance in 802.11b WLAN Networks

    Narbutt, Miroslaw; Davis, Mark

    2006-01-01

    In this paper we experimentally study the relationship between bandwidth utilization in the wireless LAN and the quality of VoIP calls transmitted over the wireless medium. Specifically we evaluate how the amount of free bandwidth decreases as the number of calls increases and how this influences transmission impairments (i.e. delay, loss and jitter) and thus degrades call quality. We show that the amount of free bandwidth is a good indicator for predicting VoIP call quality.
