This paper describes a power conversion and data recovery system for a microwave powered sensor platform. A patch microwave antenna, a matching filter and a rectifier make the system frontend and implement the RF-to-DC conversion of power carrier. The efficiency of the power conversion is as high as 47% with an input power level 250 µW at 2.45 GHz.(More)
— We present a novel numerical technique for the computation of a Lyapunov function for nonlinear systems with an asymptotically stable equilibrium point. Our proposed approach constructs a continuous piecewise affine (CPA) function given a suitable partition of the state space, called a triangulati-on, and values at the vertices of the triangulation. The(More)
Phylogenetic diversity of Fe(III)-reducing microorganisms in rice paddy soil: Enrichment cultures with different short-chain fatty acids as electron donors" (2011). 1 Introduction Rice is a staple food for more than 50% of the world's populations — http://beta.irri.org/index.php. In Asia, nearly 140,000,000 ha are cultivated paddy soils in 2008 —(More)
The study aims to explore the risk of depression in left-behind children in grades four-six in rural China and to identify the factors associated with increased depression risk in this population. In Hubei Xiantao, a school-based sample of 1000 children was recruited with 875 children (590 left-behind children, 285 controls) providing all relevant(More)
Footpad infection of C3HeB/FeJ mice with Leishmania amazonensis leads to chronic lesions accompanied by large parasite loads. Co-infecting these animals with L. major leads to induction of an effective Th1 immune response that can resolve these lesions. This cross-protection can be recapitulated in vitro by using immune cells from L. major-infected animals(More)
BACKGROUND Neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT) combined with surgery has been implemented as a standard treatment strategy in locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC). However, there is a wide spectrum of response to nCRT. The aim of this study was to determine whether enhancer of zeste homologue 2 (EZH2 ) expression could predict response to nCRT and(More)
— The numerical construction of Lyapunov functions provides useful information on system behavior. In the Continuous and Piecewise Affine (CPA) method, linear programming is used to compute a CPA Lyapunov function for continuous nonlinear systems. This method is relatively slow due to the linear program that has to be solved. A recent proposal was to(More)
— In this paper, we present a new approach for computing Lyapunov functions for nonlinear discrete-time systems with an asymptotically stable equilibrium at the origin. The proposed method constructs a continuous piecewise affine (CPA) function on a compact subset of the state space containing the origin, given a suitable triangulation or partition of the(More)
Distortion-induced fatigue cracking in unstiffened web gaps is common in steel bridges. Previous research by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) developed methods to predict the peak web gap stress and maximum differential deflection based upon field data and finite element analyses from two skew supported steel bridges with staggered(More)
