Miscanthus is a perennial energy grass predominantly used for combustion but there is increasing interest in fermenting the cell-wall carbohydrates or green-cutting for soluble sugars to produce bioethanol. Our aims were to: (1) quantify non-structural carbohydrates (NSC), (2) observe the timing of seasonal shifts in the stems and rhizome, and (3) identify(More)
Willows (Salix spp.) grown as short rotation coppice (SRC) are viewed as a sustainable source of biomass with a positive greenhouse gas (GHG) balance due to their potential to fix and accumulate carbon (C) below ground. However, exploiting this potential has been limited by the paucity of data available on below ground biomass allocation and the extent to(More)
A number of software routines were written for the public domain Macintosh-based video-densitometry program, Image, to facilitate in situ hybridization analysis. These routines utilize fiducial marks drilled in unused portions of the brain to rotate high-magnification images of individual sections so that they may be placed in register. The regions of(More)
Two psychophysical experiments were conducted at North Carolina State University (NCSU) and Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) to obtain replicated perceived saturation data from color normal observers on the order of one unit of saturation. The same 37 Munsell sample sheets, including up to four references that had similar perceived saturation but(More)
We describe results from the initial operation of our coaxial gyroklystron experiment, which is being evaluated as a potential driver for future linear colliders. The interaction is designed to occur between a 500 kV, 500 700 A beam and a series of coaxial TE0n1 microwave cavities. Output powers in excess of 100 MW at 8.568 GHz are expected with an(More)
* Work supported by the US Department of Energy. In this paper we consider the preliminary designs of three-cavity microwave circuits for coaxial gyroklystrons. These tubes are predicted to produce over 100 MW of power in 1 μs pulses in Xand Ku-Band for linear collider applications with efficiencies exceeding 40% and gains above 50 dB. In particular, we(More)
