Although many researchers have reported that copper chloride is an important catalyst that generates relatively large amounts of dioxins in heat experiments involving model fly ash, details on the behavior of copper during the process are still unavailable. In this study, we used in situ XANES experiments involving one type of real fly ash, which originated(More)
In order to cope with the dramatic growth in the amount of data traffic, future radio access networks may consist of a large number of small cells that are densely deployed. In this paper, we focus on the identification of densely deployed small cells based on hierarchical synchronization channels specified in the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard. The(More)
Efficacy of standard regimens (e.g., 3–6 MU for 24 weeks) of alfa-IFN therapy for chronic hepatitis C has been limited, particularly in patients with HCV/1b. To see if higher-dose longer term treatment is more effective, we tried a 9 MU 60-week regimen. HCV/1b-infected chronic hepatitis patients received 9 MU IFNα2a everyday but Sunday for 2 weeks and(More)
The presence of occult metastasis is the most important factor that influences the prognosis in patients with head and neck cancer. To reproduce occult metastasis of oral cancer cells, we serially resected the primary focus in an orthotopic implantation model to examine when metastasis of cancer cells occurs. Human squamous cell carcinoma was implanted into(More)
Only limited information on the chemical forms of copper in municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) fly ash is available in the literature. Therefore, we performed in situ X-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopy (XANES) experiments involving two types of real fly ash to confirm the behavior of copper in fly ash at secondary formation temperatures for(More)
Exploiting the unlicensed spectrum is considered by 3GPP as one promising solution to meet the ever-increasing traffic growth. As a result, one major enhancement for LTE in Release 13 has been to enable its operation in the unlicensed spectrum via Licensed-Assisted Access (LAA). In this article, we provide an overview of the Release 13 LAA technology(More)
We built up a Long Term Evolution (LTE) trial system operating in 5.8 GHz unlicensed bands and conducted a real time field trial in typical indoor environments. The user throughput of LTE with the 20MHz carrier in the unlicensed bands, which is used as a Supplemental Downlink (SDL) (always downlink), is evaluated and compared with that of Wireless Local(More)
