We describe, for the first time, the sequential structural changes of bundles of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) as a function of heat treatment temperature. DWNTs (inner diameters >0.9 nm) are structurally stable up to 2000 °C. Above 2100 °C, the outer walls of adjacent DWNTs start coalescing into large diameter tubes. At temperatures higher than(More)

Sampling was conducted at 31 sites in the western Pacific Ocean from 2000 to 2001 with the aim of collecting plastic fragments with a neuston net (mesh size 1.00 mm × 1.64 mm). Small plastic fragments including microplastics (small fragments in the size range of 1.1–41.8 mm) were collected at multiple survey sites. Waters with high densities of small(More)
Information on the distribution and bloom scale of the giant jellyfish Nemopilema nomurai is necessary to understand the impact on fisheries. In October 2009, we had an opportunity for visual counting of N. nomurai around Japan from a research/training vessel. To take into account possibly severe missed detection of N. nomurai in the close vicinity of the(More)
A method was derived to suppress the blowoff of a hot gas from an arc chamber and to shorten arcing time in the interruption of overcurrents. The blowoff of the hot gas is suppressed by cooling with a porous metal plate attached in front of gas-exhausting holes of an arc chamber. From heat analysis, it is estimated that the temperature of the hot gas(More)
