A continuous fixed bed study was carried out by using rice husk as a biosorbent for the removal of congo red (CR) from aqueous solution. The effects of important factors, such as the value of initial pH, existing salt, the flow rate, the influent concentration of CR and bed depth, were studied. Data confirmed that the breakthrough curves were dependent on(More)
This paper presents a hardware architecture of deblocking filter (DBF) for High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) by jointly considering system throughput and hardware cost. A hybrid pipeline with two processing levels is adopted to improve system performance. With the hybrid pipeline, only one 1-D filter and single-port on-chip SRAM are used. According to the(More)
Multimedia devices are now required to support multiple coding standards. Supporting seamlessly both interoperability between standards and flexibility for application specific optimizations is a great challenge for current video coding technology. After a brief description of the new MPEG reconfigurable video coding (RVC) framework, this paper describes(More)
In 2004, ISO/IEC SC29 better known as MPEG started a new standard initiative aiming at facilitating the deployment of multi-format video codec design and to enable the possibility of reconfiguring video codecs using a library of standard components. The new standard under development is called MPEG Reconfigurable Video Coding (RVC) framework. Whereas video(More)
To make full use of solar energy for photocatalytic reactions, in this work, we developed full-spectrum-responsive photocatalysts with noteworthy photocatalytic activities under either UV, visible or even near infrared irradiation for the photodegradation of methylene blue. The core-shell structure of TiO2@WO3-x is designed from the consideration of(More)
Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (S. suis 2) is a serious zoonotic pathogen causing septicemia and meningitis in piglets and humans. The capsular polysaccharide (CPS) is an essential virulence factor for S. suis 2 to infect the host. The synthesis of CPS repeating units involves multiple glycosyltransferases. In this study, four genes (cps2E, cps2G, cps2J and(More)
