The most significant performance factors in Mobile Agent Planning (MAP) ARE; (a) the number of mobile agents, (b) the total routing time consumed by the participated agents, and (c) the time constraints, (such as information ready time and deadline triggered unto each nodes to be visited). We propose the Timed Mobile Agent Planning (TMAP), a time(More)
Graphene has become one of the most interesting nanomaterials in the past 7 years because of its unique physical properties, which originate from low dimensionality. [ 1 , 2 ] From the point of 2D conductors, other layered nanomaterials including transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are also expected to have great potential in nanoelectronics, sensing,(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study is to evaluate the anatomical structures in the maxillary sinus with relation to lateral approach sinus elevation utilizing cone beam computed tomography (CT) scans taken prior to sinus elevation surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 150 CT images were acquired from 150 patients (90 men and 60 women; mean age,(More)
Diagnosing of the interface quality and the interactions between insulators and semiconductors is significant to achieve the high performance of nanodevices. Herein, low-frequency noise (LFN) in mechanically exfoliated multilayer molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) (~11.3 nm-thick) field-effect transistors with back-gate control was characterized with and without(More)
PURPOSE This study was designed to investigate the prevalence and course of the vascular canals in the maxillary sinus walls and to measure the distance between the sinus floor, the edentulous alveolar crest, and the vascular canal using cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS The maxillary sinus CBCT scans of 250 patients scheduled(More)
Sublingual traumatic ulceration is rare and a benign, ulcerative and granulomatous process that occurs as a result of repetitive trauma of the oral mucosal surfaces by the teeth. Treatment should begin conservatively and should focus on eliminating the source of the trauma. In our cases, we chose the conservative treatment by grinding the teeth and placing(More)
OBJECTIVE To validate the accuracy of a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT)-guided surgical stent for orthodontic mini-implant (OMI) placement by quantitatively evaluating the difference between CBCT-prescribed and actual position of mini-implants in preoperative and postoperative CBCT images. MATERIALS AND METHODS A surgical stent was fabricated using(More)
The number of agents and the xecution time are two significant performance factors in mobile agent pla nning. Fewer agents cause lower network traffic and consum e less bandwidth. Regardless of the number of agents used, the xecution time for atask must be kept minimal, which means that use of the minimal number of agents must not impact on the execution(More)
We investigated the reduction of current fluctuations in few-layer black phosphorus (BP) field-effect transistors resulting from Al2O3 passivation. In order to verify the effect of Al2O3 passivation on device characteristics, measurements and analyses were conducted on thermally annealed devices before and after the passivation. More specifically, static(More)
The failure of orthopedic and dental implants has been attributed mainly to loosening of the implant from host bone, which may be due to weak bonding of the implant material to bone tissue. Titanium (Ti) is used in the field of orthopedic and dental implants because of its excellent biocompatibility and outstanding mechanical properties. Therefore, in the(More)
