For the purpose of developing an infant food of improved dispersibility characteristics and high nutritive quality, different treatments and technologies were applied to chickpea (Cicer arietinum). Samples were germinated for two and four days at room temperature (25 - 27 degrees C). One portion of each germinated chickpea sample was boiled for 40 min and(More)
Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice, is attracting significant interest because of its potential applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices. Although graphene exhibits almost uniform absorption within a large wavelength range, its interaction with light is weak. In this paper, the enhancement of the optical(More)

This study was designed to assess and compare the quantity and quality of sleep of morning, afternoon, and night shift workers during the winter and summer seasons, and to evaluate the effects of sleep deficiency on the work effort and fatigue of the workers. The subjects studied consisted of a sample of 150 textile workers, working on a monthly rotating(More)
The data for the Ebola outbreak that occurred in 2014-2016 in three countries of West Africa are analysed within a common framework. The analysis is made using the results of an agent based Susceptible-Infected-Removed (SIR) model on a Euclidean network, where nodes at a distance l are connected with probability P(l) ∝ l-δ, δ determining the range of the(More)
In this article, a polarizer based on surface plasmon resonance in a squeezed rectangular lattice is analyzed through a full-vector finite-element method solver. The device allows one state of polarization (e.g., y-polarized mode) to propagate through the fiber while the other state (x-polarized mode) is heavily attenuated: the modal losses for the x- and(More)
Manganese dioxide (MnO<sub>2</sub>) is an abundant material that is widely used in many devices, such as alkaline batteries. At infrared frequencies, MnO<sub>2</sub> is lossy and strongly absorbs light. These characteristics make MnO<sub>2</sub> a potential candidate as a low-cost saturable absorber in Q-switched lasers. In this paper, we examine the(More)
Studies have been carried out on the development of a low-cost, high-quality infant food of low paste viscosity from rice, chickpea (Cicer arietinum) and cow's milk. In order to improve the overall quality of the product, chickpea was processed by different methods prior to its incorporation. A number of formulations was prepared by mixing 52% rice, 30%(More)
Nano-antennas are the optical equivalent of antennas that are used to transmit and receive information at radio frequencies. These antennas have been used in different applications in photonics such as optical imaging, particle manipulation, bio-sensing, and improvement of the performance of solar cells. In this article we study composite nano-antennas made(More)
