Combinations of pulsed white light and UV-C or mild heat treatment to inactivate conidia of Botrytis cinerea and Monilia fructigena.
The use of pulses of intense white light to inactivate conidia of the fungi Botrytis cinerea and Monilia fructigena, responsible for important economical losses during postharvest storage andExpand

Optical properties of apple skin and flesh in the wavelength range from 350 to 2200 nm.
Optical measurement of fruit quality is challenging due to the presence of a skin around the fruit flesh and the multiple scattering by the structured tissues. To gain insight in the light-tissueExpand

Using survival analysis to investigate the effect of UV-C and heat treatment on storage rot of strawberry and sweet cherry.
Ultraviolet light and heat treatment are proposed as alternative techniques for the use of chemicals to reduce the development of the spoilage fungi Botrytis cinerea and Monilinia fructigena onExpand

Three-Dimensional Gas Exchange Pathways in Pome Fruit Characterized by Synchrotron X-Ray Computed Tomography1[C][W][OA]
Our understanding of the gas exchange mechanisms in plant organs critically depends on insights in the three-dimensional (3-D) structural arrangement of cells and voids. Using synchrotron radiationExpand

Inactivation of conidia of Botrytis cinerea and Monilinia fructigena using UV-C and heat treatment.
The effect of UV-C (lambda = 254 nm) and heat treatment was investigated on the inactivation of conidia of Botrytis cinerea and Monilinia fructigena, two major postharvest spoilage fungi ofExpand

Dynamic mathematical model to predict microbial growth and inactivation during food processing.
Many sigmoidal functions to describe a bacterial growth curve as an explicit function of time have been reported in the literature. Furthermore, several expressions have been proposed to model theExpand

Three-dimensional pore space quantification of apple tissue using X-ray computed microtomography
The microstructure and the connectivity of the pore space are important variables for better understanding of the complex gas transport phenomena that occur in plant tissues. In this study, weExpand

Comparative study of the O(2), CO(2) and temperature effect on respiration between "Conference" pear cell protoplasts in suspension and intact pears.
The influence of the O(2) and CO(2) concentration and the temperature on the O(2) uptake rate of cool-stored intact pears and pear cell protoplasts in suspension was compared. Protocols to isolateExpand

A Three-Dimensional Multiscale Model for Gas Exchange in Fruit1[C][W][OA]
Respiration of bulky plant organs such as roots, tubers, stems, seeds, and fruit depends very much on oxygen (O2) availability and often follows a Michaelis-Menten-like response. A multiscale modelExpand
