Utility operators must rely on predictive analyses regarding the availability of their subsurface assets, which highly depend on damage by increasing amounts of excavation work. However, straightforward use of standard statistical techniques, such as logistic regression or Bayesian logistic regression, does not allow for accurate predictions...

This work uses pilot examples of CO<sub>2</sub> enhanced oil recovery to analyze whether and under which circumstances it is exergetically favorable to sequester CO<sub>2</sub> through enhanced oil recovery. We find that the net storage efficiency (ratio between the stored and captured CO<sub>2</sub>) of the carbon capture and storage (CCS)...

Left ventricular (LV) blood flow is an inherently complex time-varying 3-D phenomenon, where 2-D quantification often ignores the effect of out-of-plane motion. In this study, we describe high frame rate 4-D echocardiographic particle image velocimetry (echo-PIV) using a prototype matrix transesophageal transducer and a dynamic LV phantom for...

Recent advances in photoelectrochemical redox flow cells, such as solar redox flow batteries, have received much attention as an alternative integrated technology for simultaneous conversion and storage of solar energy. Theoretically, it has been reported that even single- photon devices can demonstrate unbiased photo-charging with high solar-to...

The rapid economic development of river basins depends on the excessive use of water resources. China experienced a rapid development of hydropower projects in the last two decades and thus faces many ecological and environmental issues, especially in ecologically sensitive areas. Environmental flow is an important management tool that...

Blockchain emerged as a well-defined technological object with limited applicability applications (e.g. Bitcoin). Embraced by more and more ‘stakeholders’, Blockchain has turned into a bounty of possibilities and promises. This raises the question whether Blockchain is turning into an overextending, affective ‘hyperobject’. Adopting a post...

Water injection into hydrocarbon reservoirs has been studied in great detail both from the subsurface and from surface perspectives, usually aiming at maximizing the production of low-cost oil. Here, the exergy concept is used to examine the potential life-cycle impact of injecting water into hydrocarbon reservoirs by considering the energy...

Biobased 2-butanol offers high potential as biofuel, but its toxicity toward microbial hosts calls for efficient techniques to alleviate product inhibition in fermentation processes. Aiming at the selective recovery of 2-butanol, the feasibility of a process combining in situ vacuum stripping followed by vapor adsorption has been assessed...

The temperature dependent luminescence properties of Yb2+ doped in NaI, SrI2 and LaI3 powders, prepared by a fast synthesis method involving the rapid melting and quenching in vacuum are reported. The 4f→5d excitation and emission spectra obtained for SrI2:Yb2+ were found to be in accordance with earlier work validating the synthesis methods. In...

Background<br/><br/>Corneal endothelium (CE) images provide valuable clinical information regarding the health state of the cornea. Computation of the clinical morphometric parameters requires the segmentation of endothelial cell images. Current techniques to image the endothelium in vivo deliver low quality images, which makes automatic...

A mechanistic understanding of microbial community establishment and product formation in open fermentative systems can aid the development of bioprocesses utilising organic waste. Kinetically, a single rate-limiting substrate is expected to result in one dominant species. Four enrichment cultures were operated to ferment either xylose or...

In this study, we developed a microfluidics method, using a so-called H-cell microfluidics device, for the determination of protein diffusion coefficients at different concentrations, pHs, ionic strengths, and solvent viscosities. Protein transfer takes place in the H-cell channels between two laminarly flowing streams with each containing a...

The catalytic performance of the bifunctional catalyst Mo/HZSM-5 for methane dehydroaromatization (MDA) depends on the Mo dispersion and on zeolite acidity. Here we separately quantify the effect of dispersion and the effect of acidity on aromatic yields and coke selectivity. Also, the effect of porosity on the same is quantitatively...

Separation of propylene/propane is one of the most challenging and energy consuming processes in the chemical industry. Propylene demand is increasing and a 99.5% purity is required for industrial purposes. Adsorption based solutions are the most promising alternatives to improve the economical/energetic efficiency of the process. Zeolitic...

Microglia are brain-resident macrophages, which have specialized functions important in brain development and in disease. They colonize the brain in early embryonic stages, but few factors that drive the migration of yolk sac macrophages (YSMs) into the embryonic brain, or regulate their acquisition of specialized properties, are currently...

We consider an electromechanical system in which a microwave cavity is coupled to a mechanical resonator, with a mechanical frequency twice the microwave frequency. In this regime, the effective photon-phonon interaction is equivalent to that of a degenerate parametric amplifier, instead of the typical radiation pressure interaction. If the...

The morphometric parameters of the corneal endothelium – cell density (ECD), cell size variation (CV), and hexagonality (HEX) – provide clinically relevant information about the cornea. To estimate these parameters, the endothelium is commonly imaged with a non-contact specular microscope and cell segmentation is performed to these images. In...

The goal of this paper is to increase the statistical power of crossing-fiber statistics in voxelwise analyses of diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) data. In the proposed framework a fiber orientation atlas and a model complexity atlas were used to fit the ball-and-sticks model to diffusion-weighted images of subjects in a...

Thermalization losses limit the photon-to-power conversion of solar cells at the high-energy side of the solar spectrum, as electrons quickly lose their energy relaxing to the band edge. Hot-electron transfer could reduce these losses. Here, we demonstrate fast and efficient hot-electron transfer between lead selenide and cadmium selenide...
