D. V. B. Murthy;Alonso Corona-Chavez;Jose Luis Olvera Cervantes
PIER C , 2010, DOI: 10.2528/PIERC10060202
Abstract: A novel compact Epsilon Near Zero (ENZ) tunneling circuit with microstrip coupling for high integrability applications is presented. Full design procedure, simulation and experimental results are shown, and a methodology to extract the effective permittivity and propagation constants in the tunnel is described. Detailed analysis of the dependence on external quality factor and tunnel to feed height ratio is investigated. Simulation and measurement results of the ENZ tunnel structure are in good agreement.

PIER Letters , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL12012305
Abstract: The miniaturization of conventional ring resonators is demonstrated by forcing a voltage minimum at one end of the resonator. In addition, the resonator is loaded with a capacitance to achieve further miniaturization and reducing its sensitivity to substrate thickness tolerance. The final resonator is 73% smaller than a conventional ring resonator and has a tenfold decrease in sensitivity to substrate thickness variations. Using this resonator a 4-pole quasi-elliptic filter is fabricated showing good agreement between simulation and experimental results.

PIER , 2011, DOI: 10.2528/PIER10100707
Abstract: A new design of microwave band pass filter design is presented using metamaterial-inspired Epsilon Near Zero (ENZ) and Mu Near Zero (MNZ) behaviors. These filters are based on waveguide technology. The proposed structure allows us to reduce the number of tunnels normally used for passband filter design by reducing its size. It is also incorporated the half mode concept to the tunnels leading a greater miniaturization. Two Chebyshev filters with two and four-poles were designed, fabricated and measured showing good agreement between simulated and experimental results.

PIER , 2011, DOI: 10.2528/PIER11020402
Abstract: In this paper two four-pole filters at X-band are presented, both designs use a coaxial quarter wavelength resonator suspended in air by short circuits between the coaxial center and outer conductor. Different couplings between suspended resonators have been used to obtain a Chebyshev and a quasi-elliptic response. The Chebyshev filter was designed to have a 9.2 GHz centre frequency with a 4% fractional bandwidth. The second design is a quasi-elliptic filter composed of two vertically stacked rectangular coaxial lines, where one pair of resonators is placed on the lower coaxial line and another pair is located on the upper line. Coupling between coaxial lines is achieved through an iris in the common coaxial ground plane. The quasi-elliptic filter has been designed to have a centre frequency of 9.1 GHz with a 4% fractional bandwidth. Two transmission zeros located at the sides of the passband have been successfully achieved with the proposed filter topology. Experimental results for both designs are presented, where a good agreement with simulations has been obtained.

Abstract: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) latent infection has a deleterious effect on the efficacy of influenza vaccination in the elderly, suggesting that CMV restricts immunological diversity impairing the immune system functionality in old age. Polyfunctional T cells produce multiple cytokines and higher amounts than mono-functional T cells. High number of polyfunctional T cells correlates with better prognosis during infection. Thus, the efficiency of T cell response associates with quality (polyfunctionality) rather than with quantity (percentage of T cells). We analyze the effect of CMV infection on CD8+ T cells polyfunctionality ―degranulation (CD107a), IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha production―, from young CMV-seropositive and CMV-seronegative individuals and in middle age CMV-seropositive donors, in response to Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B (SEB). Our results show a higher percentage of polyfunctional CD8+ T cells in young CMV-seropositive individuals compared to CMV-seronegative. Also, we find an expansion of CD8+CD57+ T cells in CMV-seropositive individuals, which are more polyfunctional than CD8+CD57? cells. In middle age individuals there is a higher frequency of SEB-responding CD8+ T cells, mainly TNF-alpha or TNF-alpha/IFN-gamma producers, whereas the percentage of polyfunctional cells (IFN-gamma/TNF-alpha/CD107a) is similar to the percentages found in young CMV-seropositive. Therefore, whereas it has been shown that CMV latent infection can be detrimental for immune response in old individuals, our results indicate that CMV-seropositivity is associated to higher levels of polyfunctional CD8+ T cells in young and middle age donors. This increase in polyfunctionality, which can provide an immunological advantage in the response to other pathogens, is due to a CD8+CD57+ T cell expansion in CMV-seropositive individuals and it is independent of age. Conversely, age could contribute to the inflammation found in old individuals by increasing the percentage of cells producing pro-inflammatory cytokines. These findings highlight the necessity of further studies on the benefits/detrimental effects of CMV infection in the response to vaccination and other infections.
Newtonian Quantum Gravity  [PDF]
Jorge Gabriel Ales Corona
Journal of High Energy Physics, Gravitation and Cosmology (JHEPGC) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jhepgc.2017.34054
Abstract: The quantum treatment of gravity has been researched for more than fifty years. The focus of the efforts was the investigation of the “gravitational quantum field” concept. This article paves the way to solving this puzzle. Gravity is a phenomenon that emerges from the undulating nature of the universe. To support this claim, I deduce a more generalized expression than that of Newton’s gravity from simple considerations relating to the wave function, the probability density function, and a hypothesis of how all particles in the universe are related. This expression uncovers the true nature of the gravitational phenomenon, dark matter, and dark energy. This true nature of the gravitational field allows its renormalization and the definition of its elementary charge. The result obtained considers the Mach’s principle and deduces the origin of the inertial force. Finally, it is concluded that a new model of the universe is necessary.

PIER Letters , 2012, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL12090309
Abstract: A novel 3-pole bandpass filter (BPF) based on microstrip loaded ring resonators (LRRs) is proposed. Each resonator is composed by a closed-loop transmission line and a short-circuited stub. By properly adjusting the impedance and the electrical length of each resonator, the proposed circuit may be made compact (over 93.7% smaller than a conventional ring resonator) and its stopband may be extended simultaneously. Each resonator exhibits an area of 0.0727 λ x 0.079 λ where λ is the guided wave length. A BPF at the center frequency of =1.9 GHz with stopband extended up to 7.8 GHz (=4) is developed showing good agreement between simulation and experimental results.

Testing probabilistic techniques of timber volume estimation for forest management planning
Corona P
Forest@ , 2006,
Abstract: The cost of management plan elaboration is one of the main factors hampering the operational implementation of forest management in Italy. Besides compartment descriptions, such a cost is mainly due to the quantitative assessment of stand dendrometrical attributes. The aim of this work is to test the integration of conventional forest mensuration techniques with probabilistic estimation procedures that in the last years have found ever wider implementation for inventorying small forest areas. Distinctively, the objective of this note is the comparative experimental testing of the following methods of timber volume assessment: two-phase relascope sampling; two-phase visual estimation. Under the examined conditions referred to Turkey oak and beech high stands in Central Italy, the latter method has provided hopeful results. The most accurate and precise options of two-phase visual estimation have allowed an average time saving around 40% with respect to the total tally, with an absolute bias around 4-5% with respect to the true value of compartment timber volume, and efficiency higher than the conventional one-phase systematic plot sampling.
