Two different strains of microalgae, one raphidophyte and one dinoflagellate, were tested under different abiotic conditions with the goal of enhancing lipid production. Whereas aeration was crucial for biomass production, nitrogen deficiency and temperature were found to be the main abiotic parameters inducing the high-level cellular accumulation of(More)
We demonstrate that a simple open-loop actuation/control scheme is all that is required to produce stable, powered, human-like walking motions in a set of roughly human-like legs. This work builds off of the passive dynamic models pioneered by McGeer (1989) and later studied by Garcia (1997). Our model is constrained to move in the sagital plane. It has two(More)
The principal fatty acids from the lipid profiles of two autochthonous dinoflagellates (Alexandrium minutum and Karlodinium veneficum) and one raphidophyte (Heterosigma akashiwo) maintained in bubble column photobioreactors under outdoor culture conditions are described for the first time. The biomass production, lipid content and lipid productivity of(More)
An optical-loss measurement system based on a resonant Fabry-Perot cavity at 1.06 microm in vacuum has been developed for independent monitoring of the cavity total loss and the optical absorption loss. Maintenance of cavity resonance over a one-month period allows the assessment of long-term degradation of the cavity optics in the presence of outgassing(More)
This paper details the construction of a sub-nanosecond pulse generator capable of delivering 250 kV into a high impedance load. The pulse width is approximately 600ps with a voltage rise of up to 1 MV/ns. The pulse rise-time can be adjusted by manipulation of a peaking gap, whereas the pulse-width can be changed by adjusting a novel tail-cut switch located(More)
A nine-aperture, wide-field Fizeau imaging telescope has been built at the Lockheed-Martin Advanced Technology Center. The telescope consists of nine, 125 mm diameter collector telescopes coherently phased and combined to form a diffraction-limited image with a resolution that is consistent with the 610 mm diameter of the telescope. The phased field of view(More)
Star-9 is an experimental demonstration of distributed aperture imaging built at the Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Center. White light from a scene generator enters an array of nine actively controlled telescopes, and is combined at a focused image plane. This paper describes the algorithms used to automatically bring each telescope's relative(More)
Note: There is no complete solution provided for this exercise. Most areas are still actively being researched. Instead, a number of relevant research papers are listed here for references. Some interesting areas include: 1. Routing layer: In MANET, each node is a router. The main problem in MANET is to construct and maintain a multi-hop route between the(More)
Focusing Impulse Radiating Antennas allow the application of intense electric fields to biological tissue with centimeter spatial resolution. At low electric field strength, the scattered electromagnetic waves from the focal volume can be used to obtain information on the complex permittivity of the tissue at this location. Since the permittivity of tumor(More)
