  • Prediction of intact nectarine quality using a Vis/NIR portable spectrometer

    A commercial visible-near infrared spectrometer was tested for intact nectarine quality prediction using partial least squares calibrations. Soluble solids content, firmness, fruit weight and colour index were analysed in each fruit. External validation carried out indicated good predictive performance, particularly for soluble solids content and fruit firmness. These parameters are of key ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • Near-infrared spectroscopic assessment of contamination level of sewage

    We examined the use of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy as a rapid technique for the evaluation of sewage quality. Influent water samples, primary sedimentation tank water samples, and final effluent water samples were collected from sewage treatment facilities in Nagoya, Japan and their NIR spectra obtained. Partial least squares (PLS) models for total phosphate (TP), total nitrogen (TN), ...

  • 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 ...

  • Optoelectronic properties of various HgTe nanoparticle-based structures in the visible and infrared wavelength range

    Structural, optical, and electrical properties of various HgTe nanoparticle-based structures including a hybrid HgTe system with organic capping material and a HgTe/CdTe core-shell structure are characterised in this paper by X-ray diffraction, high-resolution transmission electron microscope, photoluminescence (PL), absorption, and current-voltage and photocurrent measurements. Absorption and PL ...

  • Liposome encapsulated gold nanoshells for NanoPhototherapy induced hyperthermia

    Gold nanoshells have been extensively studied since their invention and their role in both in vitro and in vivo photothermal therapy has been explored and demonstrated. In this work, we investigate liposomal delivery of gold nanoshells and evaluate their effects for in vitro NanoPhototherapy induced hyperthermia in human mammary carcinoma cells. In addition, we compare the application of liposome ...
