Different tasks in forensics require the use of 3D models of forensic objects (skulls, bones, corpses, etc.) captured by 3D range scanners. Since a whole object cannot be completely scanned in a single image using a range scanner, multiple acquisitions from different views are needed to supply the information to construct the 3D model by a range image(More)

Deterministic or analytical methods for computing the global optima of a functional have been extensively applied in a wide range of engineering applications. Nevertheless, it is wellknown they usually lack of effectiveness when dealing with complex nonlinear optimization problems. In particular, such a shortcomings have been addressed by using approximate(More)
New services like Video on demand, Television (IPTV), high speed Internet access and Voice over IP on top the same link are called Triple Play services. These services demand very high bandwidth to customers. ADSL and ADLS2+ aren’t enough for supporting the new bandwidth requirement. One suitable solution for high bandwidth demand with a long reach is to(More)
Image registration is a fundamental task in image processing. Over the last decades, it has been applied to a broad range of situations from remote sensing to medical imaging, artificial vision, and CAD systems. Different techniques have been independently studied resulting in a large body of research. In the last few years, there is an increasing interest(More)
An electrolytic bath containing silver(I), cobalt(II) and different complexing agents to electrodeposit Co-Ag coatings over vitreous carbon and silicon/seed-layer substrates is proposed. In situ electrochemical characterization of thin deposits is performed by means of stripping (potentiodynamic or galvanostatic) methods. These techniques allow detecting(More)
Cobalt-silver (Co-Ag) core-shell nanoparticles with different silver thicknesses were prepared by the microemulsion method in a two-step reduction process. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) characterization revealed the almost monodispersity and nanometric size (in the range 3-5 nm depending on the shell thickness) of the synthesized nanoparticles.(More)
Electrochemically fabricated magnetic mesoporous CoNi@Pt nanorods are excellent nanomotors with controlled magnetic propulsion and excellent catalytic properties. The core-shell structure allows a double functionality: (i) controlled motion of the nanorods by applying rotating magnetic fields at different frequencies and field strengths and (ii) effective(More)
Three-dimensional porous Co-Ni films/alginate hybrid materials have been successfully prepared by electrodeposition to be used as a steerable magnetic device for drug delivery. Firstly, 3D porous Co-Ni films were prepared as substrates for the subsequent electrodeposition of the alginate biopolymer. Cyclic voltammetry, galvanostatic and potentiostatic(More)
