This paper addresses quality vs. cost tradeoffs in multisensor pervasive spaces. Specifically, we focus on a case study that uses location sensing in instrumented pervasive spaces executing a variety of applications ranging from social networking to surveillance and security. Location sensing is vital in creating effective situational awareness for mission… (More)
We introduce a new perspective on magnetoplasmonics in nickel nanoferromagnets by exploiting the phase tunability of the optical polarizability due to localized surface plasmons and simultaneous magneto-optical activity. We demonstrate how the concerted action of nanoplasmonics and magnetization can manipulate the sign of rotation of the reflected light's… (More)
This report describes the xtools library. It is designed to produced graphics interfaces in the simplest and easiest way, instead of using the more complex and larger Xwindow tools. This Version 2.0 includes new useful functions.
In this study, we tested the hypothesis that self-ligation can reduce the chair time necessary for inserting and removing the archwire in a fully customized, multi-bracket, orthodontic, lingual appliance. A permuted-block, randomized trial design was employed to treat seven patients, each with Incognito(®) lingual appliances and Harmony(®) self-ligating… (More)
