Identity federation is a powerful scheme that links accounts of users maintained distinctly by different business partners. The concept of network identity is a driver for accelerating automation of Web Services on the Internet for users on their behalf while protecting privacy of their personally identifiable information. Although users of Web Services(More)
The molecular dynamics simulation is reported. The latest data on photosystem II structure, a thylakoid membrane model with the same lipid class distribution and fatty acid composition as the native thylakoid membrane, are used. The results indicate that the transfer of water, oxygen and protons has different pathways. The root mean square (rms)-fluctuation(More)
Based on studies using laboratory strains, the efficiency of gene disruption in Aspergillus oryzae, commonly known as koji mold, is low; thus, gene disruption has rarely been applied to the breeding of koji mold. To evaluate the efficiency of gene disruption in industrial strains of A. oryzae, we produced ferrichrysin biosynthesis gene (dffA) disruptants(More)
SUMMARY We describe attempts to have robots behave as embodied knowledge media that will permit knowledge to be communicated through embodied interactions in the real world. The key issue here is to give robots the ability to associate interactions with information content while interacting with a communication partner. Toward this end, we present two(More)
Service providers often incorporate services other than the main ones they offer for user convenience. Such service providers need to exchange personal attributes with other providers they interact with and link user accounts. Some service providers, however, can not federate the accounts, because the subject of them is not always same; for instance, one(More)
We present the application of 3D reconstruction technology to the inspection and decommissioning work at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan. We discuss the challenges of this project, such as the difficult image capture conditions (including under water), required use of limited imaging hardware, and capture by personnel(More)
The electrochemical reduction of CO2 to CO by an ionic liquid EMIM-BF4 is one of the most promising CO2 reduction processes proposed so far with its high Faradaic efficiency and low overpotential. However, the details of the reaction mechanism are still unknown due to the absence of fundamental understandings. In this study, the most probable and stable(More)
Diarylethene derivatives incorporating an azulene ring at the ethene moiety were synthesized. One derivative having thiazole rings showed the expected coloration reaction by excitation at 313 nm (to a higher singlet state) but not when excited at 635 nm (S(0) to S(1) excitation). The system demonstrates that the cyclization reaction can be controlled by(More)
The Mn4CaO5 cluster in Photosystem II catalyzes the four-electron redox reaction of water oxidation in natural photosynthesis. This catalytic reaction cycles through four intermediate states (Si, i = 0 to 4), involving changes in the redox state of the four Mn atoms in the cluster. Recent studies suggest the presence and importance of isomorphous structures(More)
