Vibration sensing and control in structures and machinery are essential to prevent damage or failure. This paper proposes a new sensor, based on polymeric materials, to be used as a vibration sensor. Ionic polymer metal composites (IPMCs), active materials showing a bidirectional electromechanical coupling, are used. A new model has been developed and a(More)
Electron beam intraoperative radiotherapy (ELIOT) is a new technique permitting breast radiotherapy to be completed in a single session. Since ELIOT is associated with much reduced irradiation to nontarget tissues, we carried out a study on nonpregnant breast cancer patients to estimate doses to the uterus during ELIOT to better evaluate the possible use of(More)
