Journal of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (MSCE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/msce.2017.51004
Strain-relaxed SiGe is an attractive material for use as a substrate of strained Si, in which carrier mobility is higher than that of bulk Si. The concept of this study is the use of porous Si as a sponge like substrate so that a SiGe lattice can relax without introducing dislocations. We produced porous Si specimens by electrochemical anodization and annealed them under a H2 atmosphere. Then, SiGe thin films were grown by gas-source molecular beam epitaxy. We observed the microstructure of the specimens using transmission electron microscopy. The result showed that we succeeded in producing a single-crys- tal continuous Si0.73Ge0.27 film with a 10% relaxation ratio and a low dislocation density on porous Si.

Abstract: We report on very high enhancement of thin layer's absorption through band-engineering of a photonic crystal structure. We realized amorphous silicon (aSi) photonic crystals, where slow light modes improve absorption efficiency. We show through simulation that an increase of the absorption by a factor of 1.5 is expected for a film of aSi. The proposal is then validated by an experimental demonstration, showing an important increase of the absorption of a layer of aSi over a spectral range of 0.32-0.76 microns.
Geometric Inversion of Two-Dimensional Stokes Flows – Application to the Flow between Parallel Planes  [PDF]
Mustapha Hellou
Engineering (ENG) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/eng.2010.210100
Abstract: Geometric inversion is applied to two-dimensional Stokes flow in view to find new Stokes flow solutions. The principle of this method and the relations between the reference and inverse fluid velocity fields are presented. They are followed by applications to the flow between two parallel plates induced by a rotating or a translating cylinder. Thus hydrodynamic characteristics of flow around circular bodies obtained by inversion of the plates are thus deduced. Typically fluid flow patterns around two circular cylinders in contact placed in the centre of a rotating or a translating circular cylinder are illustrated.

Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2014.613113
Abstract: Penetration of chemicals in the soil ground through irrigation water or rainfall induces important risks for the environment. These risks are badly known and may lead to direct contamination of the environment (atmosphere or ground water) or harmful effects on organisms living at ground level, indirectly affecting men. It is thus necessary to estimate these potential chemical risks on the environment. For that reason, the gradual change of these products (fertilizers, solutions, pollutants, ...) in the ground has been the subject of a lot of recent research works, based in particular on the study of non-saturated porous media in a theoretical, numerical or experimental way. Most of these works are incomplete and, in order to simplify the problem, they don’t take into accounts some process, which may be of prime importance under particular natural conditions. Complexity of such studies results from their multidisciplinary nature. In this communication, we study simultaneous transport of pollutant, the water that provides transport and the heat transfer in a 200 cm long cylindrical column full of sand taken as a non-saturated porous medium. We consider two kinds of conditions on the temperature at the column surface: the case of constant temperature and the case of sinusoidal temperature. We evaluate the influence of this temperature on the transfers. This study is purely numerical. We use the control volume method to determine hydrous, thermal and pollutant concentration profiles.
Phelipanche aegyptiaca Management with Glyphosate in Potato  [PDF]
Mustapha Haidar, Elie Shdeed
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2015.616256
Abstract: Two years field and greenhouse studies were carried out to evaluate the efficacy of sub-lethal doses of glyphosate (Round upR), ammonia gas, phosphoric acid and sulfuric acid against Phelipanche aegyptiaca in potato. Results showed that sequential application of sub-lethal doses of glyphosate at all tested rates significantly reduced P. aegyptiaca shoot number and shoot dry weight. While, the use of ammonia gas, phosphoric acid and sulfuric acid had no significant effect on the total level of P. aegyptiaca infection as compared to the control. The best results considering both P. aegyptiaca control and selectivity in potato were obtained by sequential application of sub-lethal doses of glyphosate at 60 and 80 g·ai·ha-1. Sequential application of glyphosate at 60 g·ai·ha-1 reduced P. aegyptiaca infection by 100% after 100 days after potato emergence (DAPE). Except for sequential application of glyphosate at 60 and 80 g·ai·ha-1, all tested rates enhanced the maturity rate of potato plants and decreased the number of marketable potato tubers.

Mohamed Farhaoui, Mustapha Derraz
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2016.88063
Abstract: In the drinking water treatment processes, the optimization of the treatment is an issue of particular concern. In general, the process consists of many units as settling, coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and disinfection. The optimization of the process consists of some measures to decrease the managing and monitoring expenses and improve the quality of the produced water. The objective of this study is to provide water treatment operators with methods and practices that enable to attain the most effective use of the facility and in consequence optimize the cubic meter price of the treated water. This paper proposes a review on optimization of drinking water treatment process by analyzing all of the water treatment units and gives some solutions in order to maximize the water treatment performances without compromising the water quality standards. Some practical solutions and methods are performed in the water treatment plant located in the middle of Morocco (Meknes).
Lanthanum-Neodymium-Co-Substituted Calcium Fluorobritholites  [PDF]
Mustapha Hidouri, Nawaf Albeladi
Journal of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (MSCE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/msce.2018.67016
Abstract: Britholites are considered as potential matrices for storage of nuclear wastes such as minor actinides and long-lived fission byproducts. This investigation is concerned with the study of simultaneous substitution in calcium fluor-britholite framework of two lanthanide ions assimilated to radionuclides. A series of calcium fluorbritholites doped with lanthanum and neodymium Ca8La2-xNdx(PO4)4(SiO4)2F2 with 0 ≤ x ≤ 2 were prepared via a solid state reaction in the temperature range 1450℃- 1250. The obtained products were characterized by several techniques such as Chemical analysis via Inductively coupled plasma Atomic emission spectrometry ICP-AES, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy FTIR and Nuclear magnetic resonance 31P NMR (MAS). Obtained solid solutions containing lanthanum and neodymium in variable proportions were typically apatite of hexagonal structure P63/m spatial group. The stoichiometry of the powders was verified via the metal/(phosphate + silicate) molar ratios found at about 1.67. The lattice parameters a and c calculated by the Rietveld method decreased as neodymium level increased. Despite, the close respective sizes of lanthanum and neodymium ions (VIrLa3+= 1.032A, VIrNd3+= 0.983A), their mutual substitutions led to solid solutions in whole range of composition with preferential occupation of Me (2) sites.

The choice of a wind turbine for a given site is a very significant operation. It is advised to make an in-depth study on the characteristics of the aerogenerator and the implantation site before any installation of a wind farm for choosing well the system best adapted to the energy needs. The objective of this study is to sensitize the users of the wind energy on the various problems involved in the aerogenerator installation on any site and to provide a decision-making aid to the judicious choice of the wind system best adapted. The idea is to estimate, for a selected implantation site, the energy production and the operating time of several wind systems. We can thus select the aerogenerator best adapted by making a compromise between a maximum recovery of energy and a high time of production. The influence height of the aerogenerator on energy profitability is also studied. We apply this step to the twenty six Tunisian synoptic sites by implantation scenarios of seven wind systems of various nominal speeds in function of the height.

Reduced Rates of Metribuzin and Time of Hilling Controlled Weeds in Potato  [PDF]
Walaa Siblani, Mustapha A. Haidar
American Journal of Plant Sciences (AJPS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ajps.2017.812216
Abstract: The current emphasis on reducing herbicide applications has led to an increase in alternative weed control measures. Field experiment was conducted in the spring of 2014 to examine the effect of hilling-time and reduced-rates of metribuzin and their combinations on weed infestation in potato, and to determine their impact on potato yield. Metribuzin at 0.35, 0.56, or 0.75 kg ai/ha with or without hilling 6, 7, and 8 weeks after planting (WAP) were used. Weed count, weed control visual rating, weed dry weight, potato plant height, number of shoots and leaves, root dry weight, and potato yield were collected. Results showed that metribuzin, at all tested rates, with or without hilling significantly reduced weed infestation after 50, 70, and 110 days after planting (DAP) compared to the check. Best results were obtained by a combination of metribuzin at all tested rates with hilling 6, 7, and 8 WAP. The results suggest that long season weed control and high marketable yield could be achieved by metribuzin at 0.35 kg ai/ha (53% reduction in metribuzin) supplemented with hilling (6 WAP). None of the treatments was toxic to potato plants compared to the hand-weeded plots.
The method of averaging and functional differential equations with delay

International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2001, DOI: 10.1155/s0161171201010407
Abstract: We present a natural extension of the method of averaging to fast oscillating functional differential equations with delay. Unlike the usual approach where the analysis is kept in an infinite-dimensional Banach space, our analysis is achieved in ℝn. Our results are formulated in classical mathematics. They are proved within Internal Set Theory which is an axiomatic description of nonstandard analysis.
