Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are highly vulnerable to attacks for the limitation of constrained resource and communicating via wireless links, especially running in a hostile environment such as battlefields. In such situation, an adversary may capture any node compromising critical security data including keys used for confidentiality and(More)
The proliferation of research on target detection and tracking in wireless sensor networks has kindled development of tracking continuous objects such as fires, bio-chemical material diffusion. In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient algorithm that detects and monitors a moving event region by selecting only a subset of nodes near object boundaries.(More)
Though the security of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) has been studied deeply, the inside attacks still are very difficult to defend. The inside attacks are not detectable with only the classic cryptographic techniques and the attacks mainly include two types of attack: exceptional message attack and abnormal behavior attack. In this paper, we present an(More)
The increase in hydrogen back pressure unexpectedly enhances the overall dehydrogenation reaction rate of the 4LiBH(4) + YH(3) composite significantly. Also, argon back pressure has a similar influence on the composite. Gas back pressure seems to enhance the dehydrogenation reaction by kinetically suppressing the formation of the diborane by-product.
A number of environmental and metabolic stimuli rapidly induce the expression of several highly conserved proteins such as heat shock proteins (HSPs) or stress proteins. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a single bout of submaximal exercise in varying ambient temperatures on cardiac and skeletal muscle. Adult male Sprague-Dawley(More)
The dehydrogenated microstructure of the lithium borohydride-yttrium hydride (LiBH4-YH3) composite obtained at 350°C under 0.3 MPa of hydrogen and static vacuum was investigated by transmission electron microscopy combined with a focused ion beam technique. The dehydrogenation reaction between LiBH4 and YH3 into LiH and YB4 takes place under 0.3 MPa of(More)
