This paper reports from a combined questionnaire survey and interview study of obstacles for deploying usability evaluation in software development organizations. It was conducted in a limited geographical area. The purpose of the questionnaire survey was to determine whether software development organizations in that area were evaluating the usability of(More)
—Communications interconnects and networks will continue to play a large role in contributing to the global carbon footprint, especially in data center and cloud-computing applications exponential growth in capacity. Key to maximizing the benefits of photonics technology is highly functional, lower power, and large-scale photonics integration. In this(More)
The commercialisation of human embryonic stem cell derived cell therapies for large patient populations is reliant on both minimising expensive and variable manual-handling methods whilst realising economies of scale. The Quantum Cell Expansion System, a hollow fibre bioreactor (Terumo BCT), was used in a pilot study to expand 60 million human embryonic(More)

This paper explores how obstacles to usability evaluations in a software organization can be affected. We present two field studies, each conducted in a software organization that had no previous experience with usability evaluation. In each study, we first interviewed key stakeholders to identify their opinion about significant obstacles to conducting(More)
The use of antibody and peptide functionalized semiconductor quantum dots holds considerable potential for specific labeling of target antigens and high resolution optical imaging of biological preparations. Despite this potential, their use in neuroscience is not yet widespread; a number of technical and methodological challenges must still be overcome in(More)
The enhancement and confinement of electromagnetic radiation to nanometer scale have improved the performances and decreased the dimensions of optical sources and detectors for several applications including spectroscopy, medical applications, and quantum information. Realization of on-chip nanofocusing devices compatible with silicon photonics platform(More)
