A thermochemical conversion (TCC) reactor was developed to process swine manure for waste reduction and energy production. The operating temperature and retention time are the two key parameters affecting the process. Carbon monoxide (CO) was employed as the reductive reagent. The investigated ranges of the operating temperature and retention time were(More)
A thermochemical conversion (TCC) process was applied to the treatment of swine manure slurry for oil production and waste reduction. The objectives of the first stage study were to explore the feasibility of oil production from swine manure and to determine the waste reduction rates through the TCC process. A bench TCC reactor was developed and tested at(More)
We derive the nonequilibrium kinetic equation describing the motion of chiral massless particles in the regime where it can be considered classically. We show that the Berry monopole which appears at the origin of the momentum space due to level crossing is responsible for the chiral magnetic and vortical effects.
On 5 June 2009, a catastrophic rockslide debris flow occurred at the crest of the Jiweishan range, Chongqing Municipality, China, killing 74 people and injuring an additional eight. We use L-band ALOS/PALSAR imagery to address landslide processes before, during and after the slide. We employ three different SAR methods, i.e., short baseline subsets (SBAS)(More)
AIM To compare diagnostic value of two-dimensional (2D) ultrasonography and elastosonography for suspected axillary lymph node metastasis of breast cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Elastosonography and 2D ultrasonography were performed on 78 axillary lymph nodes of 78 patients with suspected breast cancer. Scores of shape, long- to short-axis ratio, cortical(More)
Introduction — The generation of non-dissipative currents in a chiral (parity violating) system in response to an external magnetic field has attracted significant amount of interest recently. Such an effect, noted earlier in different contexts in Refs.[1, 2], has been recently proposed as an intriguing explanation for the chargedependent correlations in(More)
Goals and Objectives The goal of this project is to develop a novel micro gas analysis system (MGA) consisting of a microplasma source for gas excitation, a microspectrometer to measure the atomic and molecular emission intensity, and an optical system coupling the light source and detector. The MGA will provide a compact, low-cost method for detecting gas(More)
Abstract—We describe an experiment to measure terahertz standing wave resonances on an individual single-walled carbon nanotube. These resonances are a probe of the strength of electron-electron interactions in this 1D system. The experiment is conducted in the interferometer originally developed in our lab for terahertz spectroscopy using an(More)

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of season on bulk milk somatic cell count (BMSCC) in Northern Thailand. Data of BMSCC from 123 dairy farms within 4 milk-collecting centers in Chiang Mai and Lumphun provinces, Thailand, were collected once a month between October 2000 to August 2001. By the definition from Thai Meteorological(More)
