The effects of algae concentration, ferric chloride dose, and pH on the flocculation efficiency of the freshwater algae Chlorella zofingiensis can be understood by considering the nature of the electrostatic charges on the algae and precipitate surfaces. Two critical conditions are identified which, when met, result in flocculation efficiencies in excess of(More)
The thermophysical properties of thin film materials used for photovoltaic applications are investigated. The measurement procedure that we apply is described in detail. The method is based on a contact-free thermal analysis of free standing thin films using a lock-in thermography system. A laser heat source induces a thermal wave that propagates within the(More)
The United States is now re-assessing its nuclear waste disposal policy and re-evaluating the option of moving away from the current once-through open fuel cycle to a closed fuel cycle. In a closed fuel cycle, used fuels will be reprocessed and useful components such as uranium or transuranics will be recovered for reuse (e.g., Bodansky, 2006). During this(More)
We apply a novel an imaging technique for non-recombination active minority-carrier trapping centres in silicon wafers based on lock-in infrared thermography. Measurements on Czochralski silicon wafers show that the trap density is highly inhomogenous and correlates with oxygen-induced striation patterns. A direct comparison of the trap density image with(More)
Modeling the cell-division cycle has been practiced for many years. As time has progressed, this work has gone from understanding the basic principles to addressing distinct biological problems, e.g., the nature of the restriction point, how checkpoints operate, the nonlinear dynamics of the cell cycle, the effect of localization, etc. Most models consist(More)
