Blazars are a sub-class of quasars with Doppler boosted jets oriented close to the line of sight, and thus efficient probes of supermassive black hole growth and their environment, especially at high redshifts. Here we report on Very Long Baseline Interferometry observations of a blazar J0906 + 6930 at z = 5.47, which enabled the detection of...

The CaAlSiN<sub>3</sub>:Eu<sup>2+</sup> red phosphor and its silicone/phosphor composite are very promising materials used in the high color rendering white light-emitting diode (LED) packaging. However, the reliabilities of CaAlSiN<sub>3</sub>:Eu<sup>2+</sup> and its composite are still being challenged by phosphor hydrolysis at high...

Improving the resilience of water distribution systems (WDSs) to handle natural disasters (e.g., earthquakes) is a critical step toward sustainable urban water management. This requires the water utility to be able to respond quickly to such disaster events, and in an organized manner, to prioritize the use of available resources to restore...

Substrates for neuron culture and implantation are required to be both biocompatible and display surface compositions that support cell attachment, growth, differentiation, and neural activity. Laminin, a naturally occurring extracellular matrix protein is the most widely used substrate for neuron culture and fulfills some of these...

In speech processing applications, e.g., speech recognition, hearing aids (HAs), video conferencing, and human-computer interaction, speech enhancement or noise reduction is an essential front-end task, as the recorded speech signals are inevitably corrupted by interference, including coherent/incoherent noise and reverberation. Traditional...

This paper aims to investigate the synthesis, structure, and optical properties of SiO<sub>2</sub> @YAG:Ce core–shell optical nanoparticles for solid state lighting applications. YAG:Ce phosphor is a key part in white light emitting diodes (LEDs), with its main functionality being the generation of yellow light. Generated yellow light from...

Water quality sensors are often spatially distributed in water distribution systems (WDSs) to detect contamination events and monitor quality parameters (e.g., chlorine residual levels), thereby ensuring safety of a WDS. The performance of a water quality sensor placement strategy (WQSPS) is not only affected by sensor spatial deployment that...

White rot fungi using P. sajor-caju and T. versicolor was examined to pretreat raw champost (lignin-rich) and oyster champost (cellulose-rich) for enhancement of fermentative volatile fatty acid (VFA) production. Results showed that the efficiency of pretreatment and VFA production was influenced by the fungal strains and substrates. P. sajor...

Microstructure-property relationship has drawn strong attention in modern material science. The progress achieved in this field relies on a common basis that the material performance originates from the microstructure. This paper brings together new insights and facts from experiments regarding the pore size dependent connectivity and its...

Concrete is rarely saturated. Reliable durability design of marine concrete structures requires a solid understanding of the long-term chloride transport in unsaturated concretes. This paper presents a critical analysis of the time-dependent chloride diffusion coefficient in unsaturated cementitious materials exposed to marine environment....

Supramolecular structures with strain-stiffening properties are ubiquitous in nature but remain rare in the lab. Herein, we report on strain-stiffening supramolecular hydrogels that are entirely produced through the self-assembly of synthetic molecular gelators. The involved gelators self-assemble into semi-flexible fibers, which thereby...

Self healing of early stage radiation damage by site selective solute segregation is a promising approach to extend the lifetime of nuclear reactor components. In the present study, the creation and autonomous healing of irradiation-induced damage is investigated in pure Fe and high purity Fe–Au and Fe–Cu model alloys. To create radiation...

Crumb rubber modified bitumen (CRMB) can be considered as a binary composite system where rubber particles are embedded in the bitumen matrix. The bitumen-rubber interaction process (mainly swelling) significantly changes the mechanical properties of both bitumen and rubber phases. This study aims to predict the complex moduli of CRMB binders...

In this paper, degradation mechanisms of optical materials, used in the light emitting diode (LED)-based products, are reviewed. The LED lighting is one of the fastest technology shifts in human history. Lighting accounts for almost 20% of the global electrical energy use, inferring that replacement of traditional lighting sources with LEDs...

Multi-stable structures are able to achieve significant geometric change and retain specific deformed configurations after the loads have been removed. This reconfiguration property enables, for example, to design metamaterials with tunable features. In this work, a type of multi-stable metastructures exhibiting both level and tilted stable...

Ensuring optical transparency over a wide spectral range of a window with a view into the tailpipe of the combustion engine, while it is exposed to the harsh environment of sootcontaining exhaust gas, is an essential pre-requisite for introducing optical techniques for long-term monitoring of automotive emissions. Therefore, a regenerable...

In order to reduce the damage to tissue and fill the interstices between fibers, multifilament sutures are frequently treated with certain coating materials. The objective of this study was to create and characterize dopamine hydrochloride (DA) and carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCS) coatings on surgical sutures and investigate their effects on the...

Active flow control is demanding for new actuation technologies as none of the actual available actuators has reached all the criterions for expecting an implementation in the coming years. Here, a new type of pulsed jet is designed and preliminary measurements of its performances in quiescent flow are conducted. Pulsed operation has been chosen...

Strain-hardening geopolymer composite (SHGC) lately emerged as a promising alternative to traditional strain-hardening cementitious composite with added advantages of industrial by-product utilization and enhanced sustainability. However, as the design of SHGC requires multi-factor optimization, the application of traditional trial-and-error...

Flood risk is expected to increase in coastal cities, particularly in Asian megacities such as Shanghai. This paper presents an integrated modeling framework to simulate changes in the flood risk in Shanghai and provide a cost-benefit analysis of multiple adaptation strategies used to reduce risk. The results show that the potential flood...
