A Robust Baseband Demodulator for ISO 18000-6C RFID Reader Systems
Cheng Jin,Sung Ho Cho
International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/406710
Abstract: One key challenge for ultra-high frequency (UHF) radio-frequency identification (RFID) reader design is to demodulate the weak tag response signal which tends to be easily distorted and has considerable frequency deviations. In this paper, a baseband demodulator based on a matched filter (MF) is proposed to enhance the reliability of signal processing for the EPCglobal Class-1 Generation-2 (Gen2) RFID reader systems. The proposed demodulator is very robust against strong signal distortions and large frequency deviations happening on the received backscattered signal from a passive RFID tag. The validity and usefulness is demonstrated by both computer simulations and implementation experiments.
An Efficient Collision Detection Scheme for Generation-2 RFID Systems
Cheng Jin,Sung Ho Cho
International Journal of Computer Science Issues , 2012,
Abstract: In radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems, tag collision resolution is a significant issue for fast tag identification. Dynamic framed slotted ALOHA (DFSA) is one of the most widely used algorithms to resolve tag collision. Collision detection (CD) plays an important role in determining the efficiency of DFSA-based algorithms because most DFSA-based algorithms determine the next frame size according to the number of collided slots in the current frame. Existing CD methods do not respond quickly enough to detect a collision and have difficulty in distinguishing a collision from noise, resulting in a degradation of system efficiency. This paper presents a CD scheme based on the EPCglobal Class-1 Generation-2 protocol to improve CD efficiency. This scheme enables fast and accurate CD by detecting the number of pulses transmitted by tags. The effectiveness and practical feasibility of the scheme is verified by simulation and implementation. Performance evaluation results show that the proposed scheme achieves faster identification speed than the conventional methods, especially under noise conditions.

Advances in Bioscience and Biotechnology (ABB) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/abb.2013.41007
Abstract: The hat shock transcription factor HSF1 inthe yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae regulates a wide range of genes and functions in diverse cellular reactions. To investigate the physiological response of HSF1 inthe presence of menadione (MD) in S. cerevisiae KNU 5377Y3, wild-type (k3wt) and isogenic hsf1 mutant (k3h1) cells were introduced. HSF1 was induced when k3wt cells were exposed to the superoxide-generating agent MD and k3h1 cells were hypersensitive to MD. Under MD stress, k3h1 cells down-regulated the expression of metabolic enzymes (Hxk, Fba1, Pgk1, Eno2, and Adh1), antioxidant enzymes (Trx2 and porin), and molecular chaperones and their cofactors (Hsp104, Ssb1, Hsp60, Hsp42, Hsp26, Hsp12, Cpr1, and Sti1). In addition, k3h1 cells increased cellular hydroperoxide levels and protein carbonylation under MD stress as compared to k3wt cells. However, there was a moderate difference in the wild-type (b3wt) and mutant (b3h1) cells derived from S. cerevisiae S288Cunder the same conditions. Thus, these results show that HSF1 is an important component of the stress response system, acting as an activator of cell rescue genes in S. cerevisiae KNU5377Y3, and its expression protects the cells from MD-induced oxidative damage by maintaining redox homeostasis and proteostasis in the presence of MD.

Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2013.37A2001

Objective: To evaluate the feasibility and safety of single-port laparoscopic hysterectomy comparing with multi-port laparoscopic hysterectomy in treatment of benign uterine diseases. Methods: Data were collected retrospectively by review of the medical records of 252 patients who underwent multi-port or single-port laparoscopic surgery for treatment of benign gynecologic diseases. Laparoscopy assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) was performed for single-port surgery and LAVH and total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) were performed for multi-port surgery. Demographic variables were collected and analyzed by independent t-test and Pearson Chi-Square test. The primary outcome was analyzed by independent t-test and Fisher’s Exact test. Results: A longer operative time was observed in the multi-port surgery group compared with that of the single-port group (p < 0.05). No difference with respect to change of Hemoglobin between the preoperative level and that of the postoperative first day, the number of days from the operation to discharge, uterine weight, and the rate of laparotomy conversion and complications were observed between the two groups. Conclusion: Single-port laparoscopic hysterectomy for treatment of benign uterine diseases is a safe and feasible method.

Physics , 2015,
Abstract: Treatment planning system calculations in inhomogeneous regions may present significant inaccuracies due to loss of electronic equilibrium. In this study, three different dose calculation algorithms, pencil beam, collapsed cone, and Monte-Carlo, provided by our planning system were compared to assess their impact on the three-dimensional planning of lung and breast cases. A total of five breast and five lung cases were calculated using the PB, CC, and MC algorithms. Planning treatment volume and organs at risk delineation was performed according to our institutions protocols on the Oncentra MasterPlan image registration module, on 0.3 to 0.5 cm computed tomography slices taken under normal respiration conditions. Four intensity-modulated radiation therapy plans were calculated according to each algorithm for each patient. The plans were conducted on the Oncentra MasterPlan and CMS Monaco treatment planning systems, for 6 MV. The plans were compared in terms of the dose distribution in target, OAR volumes, and monitor units. Furthermore, absolute dosimetry was measured using a three-dimensional diode array detector to evaluate the dose differences in a homogeneous phantom. Comparing the PB, CC, and MC algorithms planned dose distribution, the PB algorithm provided adequate coverage of the PTV. The MUs calculated using the PB algorithm was less than those of the other algorithms. The MC algorithm showed the highest accuracy in terms of the absolute dosimetry. Differences were found when comparing the calculation algorithms. The PB algorithm estimated higher doses for the target than the CC and MC algorithms. The PB algorithm actually overestimated the dose compared with those calculated by the CC and MC algorithms. The MC algorithm showed better accuracy than the other algorithms.
Hepatothorax due to a right diaphragmatic rupture related to duodenal ulcer perforation
Se-Jin Baek,Jin Kim,Sung-Ho Lee
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2012, DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v18.i39.5649
Abstract: Here, we present the case of a 53-year-old man with a hepatothorax due to a right diaphragmatic rupture related to duodenal ulcer perforation. On admission, the patient complained of severe acute abdominal pain, with physical examination findings suspicious for a perforated peptic ulcer. Of note, the patient had no history of other medical conditions or recent trauma, and the initial chest radiography and laboratory findings were not specific. A subsequent abdominal computed tomography revealed intrathoracic displacement of the liver, gallbladder, transverse colon and omentum through a right diaphragmatic defect. The patient then underwent an explorative laparotomy that confirmed duodenal ulcer perforation. A primary repair of the duodenal perforation was performed, and the diaphragmatic defect was repaired using a polytetrafluoroethylene patch after the organs were reduced and the cavity irrigated. This particular case proves interesting as right-sided spontaneous diaphragmatic ruptures are very rare and difficult to diagnose. Additionally, the best treatment for such large diaphragmatic defects is still controversial, especially in cases of intrathoracic or intra-abdominal contamination.

Small-scaled wind turbine is converted to mechanical power of windmill to electric power by generator. However almost all studies seems to have overlooked converting relation of mechanical & electric power. It the reason for was very difficult establishing wind turbine system. In this paper, it is define equation of converting relation of mechanical & electric power. And it is verified by experimental methods. Defined equation will be used in developing electric devices such as inverter and controller in wind turbines. In addition this method can be used in the fields that utilize the rotational power into electrical power through generator.

Abstract: In this study, in order to improve the photocatalytic decomposition activities of formaldehyde, TiO2 catalyst modified with SiO2 substitution and metal (Pt, Cu and Fe) impregnation, were tested. In case of TiO2 substituted by SiO2, the optimal catalytic activity was found at the mole ration of 2 : 8. Among the metal impregnated TiO2, the Pt impregnated TiO2 showed the best activity even better than that of P-25 which is widely used in commercial application. However, Cu and Fe impregnated TiO2 showed the reverse effect. In the case of SiO2 substituted TiO2 the observed values of photoluminescence spectroscopy were quite proportional to the photocatalytic activities depending upon the mole ratio of SiO2 to TiO2. However, for the samples of metal impregnated TiO2, the reverse relationships were found. In UV-visible spectra for metal impregated TiO2, the transmittance value was reduced depending upon the loading of metals. The enhanced photocatalytic activity for high metal loading on TiO2 might be associated with the high concentration of excited electron that was monitored through UV-visible spectra.

Abstract: We have generated refolding-facilitating media immobilized with three folding machineries, mini-chaperone (a monomeric apical domain consisting of residues 191–345 of GroEL) and two foldases (DsbA and human peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase) by mimicking oxidative refolding chromatography. For efficient and simple purification and immobilization simultaneously, folding machineries were fused with the positively-charged consecutive 10-arginine tag at their C-terminal. The immobilized folding machineries were fully functional when assayed in a batch mode. When the refolding-facilitating matrices were applied to the refolding of denatured and reduced RNase A and CHMO, both of which contain many cysteine and proline residues, RNase A and CHMO were recovered in 73% and 53% yield of soluble protein with full enzyme activity, respectively.The refolding-facilitating media presented here could be a cost-efficient platform and should be applicable to refold a wide range of E. coli inclusion bodies in high yield with biological function.Escherichia coli retains its dominant position as the first choice of host for the high-throughput production of proteins of therapeutic or commercial interest because of rapid biomass accumulation, well-established genetic manipulation methods and simple process scale-up [1,2]. However, a major disadvantage derived from the intrinsic properties of E. coli is the frequent formation of an inclusion body, a dense aggregate of misfolded polypeptides [3]. Refolding the inclusion bodies into the native conformation might be straightforward if an efficient refolding scheme is established. There are a variety of conventional methodologies for refolding recombinant proteins from inclusion bodies, which contains simple dilution, dialysis and chromatographic refolding methods. Dilution is the simplest and most widely used technique and involves refolding initiation by reducing the denaturant concentration. However, the target product in dilution refold
