Degradation of 17alpha-ethinylestradiol in wastewater treatment systems
The existence and persistence of estrogenic chemicals in aquatic environments is a problem that may affect public and ecosystem wellness. For this reason, it is of major concern, and being investigated by those in the field ...
Design, x-ray image guidance and flow characterization of new asymmetric vascular stents
Recent advances of x-ray imaging techniques have made possible improvement and development of new minimally invasive image guided interventions (IGI). Capabilities such as real-time, high special resolution image guidance ...
Molecular simulation study of fundamental effects of molecular association on properties of fluid interfaces
Fluids with molecular association such as hydrogen bonding often exhibit a variety of anomalous properties. An extreme example is hydrogen fluoride (HF), in which properties are dominated by the formation of clusters in ...
Electrochemical performance and discharge mechanism of silver vanadium phosphorous oxide
Silver Vanadium Phosphorous Oxide (SVPO), Ag 2 VO 2 PO 4 , as an active electrode material has several good electrochemical properties which are large capacity, high current capability, and effective delivery of high current ...
Nanostructured photovoltaic devices for next generation solar cell
As the search for alternative sources of energy other than petroleum continues to expand, solar energy conversion has already been identified as one of the most promising technologies. In the past few years there has been ...
Photonic crystal based optical circuitry
This work focuses on the microfabrication and nanofabrication of structures in three-dimensional photonic crystals and their exploitation in optical circuitry. We have shown microfabrication of defect structures such as ...
Design, performance analysis, and optimization of a new X-ray detector for region of interest angiography and fluoroscopy for implementation in neurovascular interventional procedures
Image guided neuro-interventions require high spatial resolution, about 4 to 10 lp/mm, for visualization of small vessels called perforators which maybe 50-300 μ m in diameter, and for precise localization of interventional ...
Determination of three-dimensional structured objects, vascular structures, and imaging geometry from single-plane and biplane projection images
Three-dimensional (3D) vessel trees can provide useful visual and quantitative information during interventional procedures. To calculate the 3D vasculature and improve these measurements, we have developed methods for the ...
Analysis of TGF-mediated dynamics in a system of many coupled nephrons
Previously, Pitman et al. (2002) derived an integral model of the tubuloglomerular feedback system. This integral model (also known as reduced model) describes the fluid flow up the thick ascending limb of a single, ...
