Knowledge of the dielectric properties of commodities and insect pests is important in developing thermal treatments for postharvest insect control based on radio frequency (RF) and microwave energy. The dielectric properties of six subtropical and tropical fruits along with four associated insect pests were measured between 1 and 1800 MHz using an(More)
Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Discussions This discussion paper is/has been under review for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP). Please refer to the corresponding final paper in ACP if available. Abstract A detailed study on atmospheric mercury emissions from municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills in China is necessary to understand(More)
Thermal conditioning of fifth-instar Cydia pomonella (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae) affects HSP70 accumulation and insect mortality" (2006). Abstract. Levels of HSP70 protein of fifth-instar codling moth [Cydia pomonella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)] are determined after conditioning at 35 C for different times and also after recovery at 22 C. Protein(More)
We study the real-time nonequilibrium dynamics in hot QED plasmas implementing a dynamical renormalization group and using the hard thermal loop (HTL) approximation. The focus is on the study of the relaxation of gauge and fermionic mean fields and on the quantum kinetics of the photon and fermion distribution functions. For semihard photons of momentum eT(More)
Recent studies have shown that the human colostrum and milk are a continuous supply of commensal, mutualistic and/or potentially probiotic bacteria to the infant gut. The diversity of complex bacterial communities in human milk can be used for the screening of novel bacteria with a potential interest for industry. Here, a protease-producing strain R75E was(More)
Traumatic diaphragm rupture is a rare trauma that is easily overlooked. A missed diagnosis would result in chronic traumatic diaphragmatic herniation (CTDH). Surgical repair is the standard treatment that is conventionally performed by laparotomy or thoracotomy. Laparoscopic repair has been reported, but its efficacy remains controversial. In this study, we(More)
