A series of amphiphilic alternative block polyurethane copolymers based on poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate) (P3/4HB) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) were synthesized by a coupling reaction between P3/4HB-diol and PEG-diisocyanate, with different 3HB, 4HB, PEG compositions and segment lengths. Stannous octanoate was used as catalyst. The chemical(More)
Visible light communication (VLC) is considered to be one of the promising technologies for future wireless systems and has attracted an increasing number of research interests in recent years. Optical orthogonal frequency division multiplexing has been proposed for VLC systems to eliminate the multipath interference while also facilitating the frequency(More)
The biodegradable behaviors of monofilament suture made from bacterial biopolyester poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate) (P3/4HB) was investigated both in lipase solution and by implant into rat tergal muscles. Results showed that the monofilament suture lost its tensile strength gradually accompanied by decrease of molecular weight. The suture(More)
Foreground segmentation is a fundamental method in computer vision. Traditional foreground segmentation algorithms are sensitive to blurry degree of background, smooth foreground regions and camouflage foreground. To deal with these problems, we use light field images as input by exploiting its focusness cue. In this paper, we propose an automatic(More)
