Enzyme-modified amperometric microsensors have been utilized in the investigation of acetylcholine and choline diffusion in solution and choline uptake and diffusion in rat brains. A small amount of the substance of interest was introduced by pressure injection and transport to the sensor was monitored. The apparent diffusion coefficients for acetylcholine… (More)
An effective geometrically motivated intersection algorithm for two spatial parametric curves is presented. Examples are shown to illustrate the efficiency and robustness of the new method.
—A novel Yagi-Uda antenna with dual-band (915–935 MHz and 1760–1805 MHz) is presented. Branch structures are used to realize dual-band performance. The geometrical parameters for the branch structures are optimized to explore the antenna to operate satisfactorily in the two bands. Prototype is manufactured and measured, and the results are in good agreement… (More)
A new orthogonal projection method for computing the minimum distance between a point and a spatial parametric curve is presented. It consists of a geometric iteration which converges faster than the existing Newton's method, and it is insensitive to the choice of initial values. We prove that projecting a point onto a spatial parametric curve under the… (More)
