A methodology for finding the optimal iteration number of the SIRT algorithm for quantitative Electron Tomography.
The SIRT (Simultaneous Iterative Reconstruction Technique) algorithm is commonly used in Electron Tomography to calculate the original volume of the sample from noisy images, but the results provided by this iterative procedure are strongly dependent on the specific implementation of the algorithm, as well as on the number of iterations employed for the reconstruction.

Film forming hybrid acrylic/ZnO latexes with excellent UV absorption capacity
Acrylic/ZnO hybrid latexes were synthesized through a two-step emulsion polymerization process. First, a hybrid seed was synthesized by miniemulsion polymerization, which contained all theExpand

Toward the minimization of fluorescence loss in hybrid cross-linked core-shell PS/QD/PMMA nanoparticles: Effect of the shell thickness
Abstract We present an efficient method for the encapsulation and fixation of octadecylamine coated CdSe/ZnS quantum dots. This is achieved by incorporating the QDs into core-shell particles made ofExpand

Influence of the processing parameters and composition on the thermal stability of PLA/nanoclay bio‐nanocomposites
Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) is one the most promising bio-based and biodegradable polymer. However, its low thermal stability limits the range of applications and complicates its transformation via theExpand

3D TEM reconstruction and segmentation process of laminar bio-nanocomposites
The microstructure of laminar bio-nanocomposites (Poly (lactic acid)(PLA)/clay) depends on the amount of clay platelet opening after integration with the polymer matrix and determines the finalExpand

Evolution of particle morphology during the synthesis of hybrid acrylic/CeO2 nanocomposites by miniemulsion polymerization
The evolution of the morphology of an acrylic/CeO2 hybrid latex synthesized by a two step seeded semibatch emulsion polymerization process was investigated. The seed was produced by batchExpand
