Active implantable medical devices have been developed for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of large variety of neural disorders. Since the mechanical properties of these devices need to be matched to the tissue, soft materials, such as polymers are often preferred as a substrate [1]. Parylene is a good candidate, as it is highly...

As the era of Bioelectronic medicines (BEms) evolves, new technological challenges are generated, including miniaturized devices that are encapsulated with flexible materials and energized by wireless power transmission (WPT) techniques. Among them, magnetostatic, also known as inductive, and ultrasound (US) are the most viable candidates for...

Neural interface in the form of microelectrodes are used to monitor and treat spinal cord injury and other neurological disorders by the means of recording and stimulation. Despite of the apparent result of these electrical interventions, understanding of the mechanism behind neural stimulation is still inadequate. The use of optical monitoring...

Optogenetics is a neuromodulation method that holds great potential for the realization of advanced neuroprostheses due to its precise spatial-temporal control of neuronal activity [1]. The development of novel optogenetic implants (optrodes) may open new doors to investigate complex brain circuitry and chronical brain disorders, such as...

The main goal of bioelectronic medicine is to, one day, replace conventional chemical drugs with miniaturized implants. This way, tiny electrical pulses will be locally delivered to a small group of neurons in order to influence and modify biological functions. Developing such implants, however, has brought many new challenges both in the...

Electronic components in the form of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) establishing the communication between the body and the implant, such as stimulation and recording, have, nowadays, become essential elements for current and future generations of implantable devices, as medicine is looking into substituting its traditional...

Buildings and structures in many cities have recently been exposed to an increased number of highly dynamic hazards. These include not only floods and earthquakes but also man made threats such as ballistic impacts and blasts. Thus, the assessment of the dynamic performance of structures made of quasi-brittle materials must account also for high...

Incubators in cell cultures are used to grow and maintain cells under optimal temperature alongside other key variables, such as pH, humidity, atmospheric conditions etc. As enzymatic activity and protein synthesis proceed optimally at 37.5 oC, a temperature rise can cause protein denaturation, whereas a drop in temperature can slow down...

In practical combustion devices featuring high power densities, the interaction between flames and walls may have a significant impact on the thermodynamic efficiency and the formation of pollutants (e.g. unburned hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide). The common understanding is that at the region near the wall ~ 1 mm, where the solid metal surface...

In recent years cooperatives for renewable energy supply (REScoops) have emerged as important new actors in energy markets. They provide their members (i.e., households) with renewably generated energy within a cooperative model that enables members to co-decide on its strategic and tactical goals, plans and business model. REScoops do not only...

Planetary Radio Interferometry and Doppler Experiment (PRIDE) is a multi-purpose experimental technique aimed at enhancing the science return of planetary missions. It is based on, the near-field phase-referencing VLBI (Very Long Baseline Interferometry) and radial Doppler measurements. It has been developed initially by the Joint Institute for...

Because clouds scatter and absorb incident radiation, they play crucial roles in the radiative balance, the atmospheric chemistry, climate, and thus the habitability
of a planet. Clouds usually affect the planet’s observables. We investigate here the effect of partial and variable cloud coverage on the light that is reflected by an

Feeder nourishments, where sand quantities of O (10 million m³) are placed locally to feed adjacent coastal stretches, are suggested nowadays as an alternative for local, smaller-scale nourishments (< 1 million m³). These feeder nourishments rely on natural forces to spread the sediment. While processes that govern this spreading such as...

This paper presents a constitutive relationship to describe the uniaxial response in statics of brick and mortar samples of Adobe. This defines a traditional masonry whose components are made of soil mixture reinforced with fibres. Only recently Adobe has started attracting scientific attention, primarily as a consequence of the dramatic...

The Sand Engine is an example of a feeder nourishment that is intended to nourish coastal systems. This strategy is based on placing sediments highly concentrated at one location, from which it is expected to spread alongshore over large distances on decadal timescales.

Here the morphological development of the Sand Engine mega feeder...

Recommendation system has became an important component in many real applications, ranging from e-commerce, music app to video-sharing site and on-line book store. The key of a successful recommendation system lies in the accurate user/item profiling. With the advent of web 2.0, quite a lot of multimodal information has been accumulated,...
