In this paper, we describe a QRS complex detector based on the dyadic wavelet transform (Dy WT) which is robust to time-varying QRS complex morphology and to noise. We design a spline wavelet that is suitable for QRS detection. The scales of this wavelet are chosen based on the spectral characteristics of the electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. We illustrate(More)
This paper is a case study of metadata development in the early stages of the National Digital Newspaper Program, a twenty-year digital initiative to expand access to historical newspapers in support of research and education. Some of the issues involved in newspaper metadata are examined, and a new XML-based standard is described that is suited to the(More)
The debris produced by femtosecond laser ablation (180 fs, 775 nm, 1 kHz) of Si in ambient air is deposited around the ablated craters in a circular zone with diameters between ~40 and 300 μm for laser fluences (F) in the region F=0.2–8 J/cm. The debris consists of nanoparticles. The mean height of the nanoparticles increases with laser fluence (from ~70 to(More)
We demonstrate an organic polariton condensate that exhibits nonlinear interactions at room-temperature. Upon reaching threshold, we observe a superlinear power dependence, a power-dependent blueshift and the emergence of long-range spatial coherence resulting from polariton interactions.
The Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma (ARIA) initiative commenced during a World Health Organization workshop in 1999. The initial goals were (1) to propose a new allergic rhinitis classification, (2) to promote the concept of multi-morbidity in asthma and rhinitis and (3) to develop guidelines with all stakeholders that could be used globally for(More)
The design of some optical devices, such as semiconductor optical amplifiers for telecommunication applications, requires polarization-insensitive optical emission at long wavelengths (1300–1550 nm). Self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) typically exhibit ground state optical emissions at wavelengths shorter than 1300 nm with highly(More)
The inverted-pendulum method of thrust measurement for high-power electric thrusters is described analytically and experimentally. Two sources of uncertainty in the thrust measurements are investigated: those due to changes in the sensitivity of the inverted pendulum and those due to tare forces resulting from thermal stresses and electromagnetic forces(More)
An experimental investigation of acoustic mode noise suppression was conducted in a cavity using a digital controller with a linear control algorithm. The control algorithm was based on flow field physics similar to the Rossiter model for acoustic resonance. Details of the controller and results from its implementation are presented in the companion paper(More)
A Good Practice is a practice that works well, produces good results, and is recommended as a model. MACVIA-ARIA Sentinel Network (MASK), the new Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma (ARIA) initiative, is an example of a Good Practice focusing on the implementation of multi-sectoral care pathways using emerging technologies with real life data in(More)
ICRF operations with Alcator C-Mod consists of 4 transmitters, of which two are tunable within the 40 MHz to 80 MHz band. These transmitters were comprised of 3 stages all of which employed vacuum tube amplifiers. As a part of the general plan to upgrade the two tunable transmitters, a project was implemented to replace the first stage, the intermediate(More)
