  • Application of dynamic threshold in sea and lake ice mapping and monitoring

    Ice detection and monitoring algorithms using visible and infrared images are generally founded on thresholds-based approaches. Classification of features over ice covered sea requires a series of reliable thresholds. The change in surface conditions throughout the season affects these thresholds and makes their adjustment necessary. This study proposes an operational method based on a set of ...

  • Investigation of shell aggregate gold nanostructures

    The unique optical properties of noble metal nanostructures have led to an increased interest into their potential uses for various biological applications. For many medical investigations, it would be beneficial to use near infrared (NIR) excitation as well as small gold nanospheres, which can easily reach the cytoplasm and cell nucleus. To fulfil both requirements simultaneously, this paper ...

  • Laser-based 2D and 3D nanomanufacturing for plasmonic applications

    Growing interest in the field of surface plasmon polaritons (SPPs) comes from a rapid advance of nanostructuring technologies. The application of two-photon polymerisation technique for the fabrication of dielectric and metallic SPP-structures, which can be used for localisation, guiding, and manipulation of SPP waves on a subwavelength scale are studied. This technology is based on non-linear ...

  • CdO/PSi/Si photo detector

    In spite of various works which were carried out on CdO and porous Si (PSi) separately, the interesting properties of CdO/PSi/Si system are not known well. In this work, we study the photoconductivity of deposited CdO layer on PSi/Si system. PS and CdO layers were prepared by electrochemical anodisation of p-type crystalline silicon and pulsed laser deposition (PLD) of cadmium oxide target. Then ...

  • Effects of long-term selection for kernel oil concentration in KYHO, a high-oil maize population

    A high-oil maize (Zea mays L.) (HOM) population, KYHO, was developed across 10 generations by selective breeding. The objectives of this investigation were to evaluate the effects of selection for kernel oil on correlated traits and measure the genetic variance of kernel oil content (KOC). Kernel oil content, kernel protein content (KPC), and kernel starch content (KSC) were estimated by ...

  • Measuring grain protein concentration with in-line near infrared reflectance spectroscopy

    The advent of near infrared (NIR) on-combine sensors gives growers the opportunity to measure the grain protein concentration of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) during harvest. A study consisting of three sequential experiments (laboratory bench, combine test stand, and field) was conducted to evaluate the performance of an in-line, NIR reflectance spectrometer, referred to as the ProSpectra Grain ...
