Due to their size-dependent properties, high photoluminescence quantum yield and relatively cheap solution-based processing, colloidal quantum dots (QDs) are of great interest for application in optoelectronic devices. However, the efficiency of these devices is often limited by the presence of trap states: localized electronic states that lead...

At the end of 2019, the European Union (EU) put forward the European Green Deal to facilitate the technological progress necessary to achieve CO2-neutrality by 2050. Such a monumental achievement would require massive investments in infrastructure for the harvesting, storage and the transnational transportation of green energy. To date, the more...

Majorana zero modes (MZMs) are a topic of intense research as they constitute the main building block of topological qubits - a qubit type with potentially enhanced coherence time. A promising way to create these quantum states is to couple a one-dimensional (1D) semiconducting segment with spin-orbit interaction to a superconductor, in the...

Soft robots are intrinsically underactuated mechanical systems that operate under uncertainties and disturbances. In these conditions, this letter proposes two versions of PID-like control laws with a saturated integral action for the particularly challenging shape regulation task. The closed-loop system is asymptotically stabilized and...

Oil paintings are complex, multi-layered systems that are prone to chemical degradation. While it is increasingly recognised that water plays an important role in these degradation reactions, little is known about moisture concentrations in oil paint systems and their temporal variation in response to fluctuating ambient air humidity. This...

Elastic structures that can deflect without springback, known as neutrally stable structures, form a remarkable group within their field, since they require the energetic state to remain unchanged during elastic deformation. Several examples in the literature obtain this state of neutral stability by the application of pre-stress, either as a...

Mo(Al<sub>x</sub>Si<sub>1-x</sub>)<sub>2</sub> alloy with x in the range of 0.35–0.65 were prepared by a one-step spark plasma sintering. To study the exclusive formation of an α-Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> scale, oxidation experiments were conducted in low and high oxygen partial pressure ambient at 1373 K; viz.: 10<sup>−14</sup> and 0.21...

The production of synthetic crystals with controlled shapes and properties is an enticing prospect, yet, the production of such materials is an ongoing challenge. Here, we present a strategy for chemo-mechanically directing the growth of crystals with non-equilibrium structures using a custom-designed double-diffusion cell. We combine...

It is indicated that the solder joint of the metal fibrous materials is a critical factor impacting the heat conduction. To reveal the mechanism by which solder joint sizes, solder joint skips, solder flux materials, and filling media affect the thermal conductivity of fibres, pore-scale numerical simulation is employed to study the thermal...

For propeller-driven vessels, cavitation is the most dominant noise source producing both structure-borne and radiated noise impacting wildlife, passenger comfort, and underwater warfare. Physically plausible and accurate predictions of the underwater radiated noise at design stage, i.e., for previously untested geometries and operating...

The demand for alternative bitumen which could fully/partially replace Petroleum sourced bitumen for pavement construction is globally increasing. The increase in demand can be associated with several factors: depletion in crude oil resources, advances in crude oil refining processes, increased demand for highway infrastructure, and regional...

The discrete membrane model is a Gaussian random interface whose inverse covariance is given by the discrete biharmonic operator on a graph. In literature almost all works have considered the field as indexed over Zd, and this enabled one to study the model using methods from partial differential equations. In this article we would like to...

Low Impact Development (LID) was promoted as an alternative to conventional urban drainage methods. The effects of LID at the site or urban scales have been widely evaluated. This project aims to investigate the impact of LID implementation on basin runoff at a regional scale in a half-urbanized catchment, particularly the overlap of urban...

Genotype imputation estimates missing genotypes from the haplotype or genotype reference panel in individual genetic sequences, which boosts the potential of genome-wide association and is essential in genetic data analysis. However, the genetic sequences involve people's privacy, confirming an individual's identification and even disease...

Introduction: Surgical treatment for oral cancer leads to lasting changes of the vocal tract and individuals treated for oral cancer (ITOC) often experience speech problems. The purpose of this study was to analyse the acoustic properties of the spontaneous speech of individuals who were surgically treated for oral cancer. It was investigated...

Research on the relationships between travel-related attitudes and travel behaviour has recently been reinvigorated by new theorizing as well as new empirical models. While traditional theories assume a rather static role of attitudes, i.e. acting as stable predispositions that cause behaviours in a unidirectional manner, recent models assume...

Limiting the introduction of excess nitrogen to natural water sources is a growing priority for water security and environmental health. This poses particular difficulties in urban environments where available land for potential solutions is limited. A promising option is the integrated fixed-film activated sludge (IFAS) process that requires...

Joint decision-making is one of the coordination mechanisms to address the inherent complexity of business-to-business (B2B) processes within a supply chain. Joint decision-making can be helpful to define shared goals and objectives, identify supply chain failures and opportunities, and consolidate supply chain success. Parties may benefit...

The pre-insertion process called anticipation is an essential component of a lane-changing manoeuvre. There is little empirical research regarding the impact of anticipation. Thus, this paper aims to explore the behaviour of the new follower (NF) in the target lane when it encounters anticipation by using new trajectory datasets. The changing...

The manual application of universal (Rigsby) stage techniques is commonly used to determine the fabric of thin sections of ice viewed with crossed-polarized light. This process can require hours of focus in cold conditions to identify the c-axis of each grain in a thin section. Automated ice texture and fabric methods of several forms exist...
