Gray mold caused by Botrytis cinerea is a major fungal disease of strawberry in Zhejiang Province, which is considered as one of the most important strawberry-producing areas in China. Recently, effective management of this disease has become an urgent need for the farmers as a result of the failure of many fungicides in controlling this pathogen. A total(More)
Percutaneous coronary intervention is a revolutionary treatment for ischemic heart disease, but in-stent restenosis (ISR) remains a clinical challenge. Inflammation, smooth muscle proliferation, endothelial function impairment, and local thrombosis have been identified as the main mechanisms for ISR. Considering the multifactorial mechanisms of ISR, a novel(More)
A two-phase proton acceleration scheme using an ultra-intense laser pulse irradiating a proton foil with a tenuous heavier-ion plasma behind it is presented. The foil electrons are compressed and pushed out as a thin dense layer by the radiation pressure and propagate in the plasma behind at near the light speed. The protons are in turn accelerated by the(More)
The construction of semi-empirical Hamiltonians for materials that have the predictive power is an urgent task in materials simulation. This task is necessitated by the bottleneck encountered in using density functional theory (DFT)-based molecular dynamics (MD) schemes for the determination of structural properties of materials. Although DFT/MD schemes are(More)
Cloud-based outsourced storage relieves the client's load of storage management and preservation by providing an equivalently flexible, inexpensive, location-independent platform. As clients no longer have physical control of data, outsourced data integrity checking is of crucial importance in cloud storage. It allows the clients to verify data(More)

In order to obtain the feature parameters of a signal, the image ridge of time-frequency domain must usually be detected. In the paper, the PSO algorithm is applied to the detection of the transform-domain image ridge. A new ridge detection algorithm is proposed, together with its specific realization process. Furthermore, this method is simulated to(More)
Proton acceleration by ultra-intense laser pulse irradiating a target with cross-section smaller than the laser spot size and connected to a parabolic density channel is investigated. The target splits the laser into two parallel propagating parts, which snowplow the backside plasma electrons along their paths, creating two adjacent parallel wakes and an(More)
The method of experimental modal parameters identification using the complex modal theories is brought forward to analyze the dynamic parameters of the rotary compressor in order to reduce the noise of household electrical products. The compressor shell and the liquid-tank shell could also be dynamic modified so as to keep the compressor in lower noise by(More)
