The Aerodyne Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (AMS) provides size-resolved chemical composition of non-refractory (vaporized at 600 • C under vacuum) submicron aerosols with a time resolution of the order of minutes. Ambient measurements were performed in Tokyo between February 2003 and February 2004. We present intercomparisons of the AMS with a(More)
[1] Submicron organic aerosol was measured simultaneously with an Aerodyne aerosol mass spectrometer (AMS) and a particle-into-liquid sampler (PILS) capable of measuring water-soluble organic carbon (WSOC) during the winter and summer of 2004 in Tokyo. Both techniques are being used to investigate the formation of secondary organic aerosol (SOA), and the(More)
This paper describes the design, construction, and testing of a 750-V 100-kW 20-kHz bidirectional isolated dual-active-bridge dc-dc converter using four 1.2-kV 400-A SiC-MOSFET/SBD dual modules. The maximum conversion efficiency from the dc-input to the dc-output terminals is accurately measured to be as high as 98.7% at 42-kW operation. The overall power(More)
The Pacific Exploration of Asian Continental Emission Phase A (PEACE-A) aircraft measurement campaign was conducted over the western Pacific in January 2002. Correlations of carbon monoxide (CO) with carbon dioxide (CO 2) and back trajectories are used to identify plumes strongly affected by Asian continental emissions. ∆CO/∆CO 2 ratios (i.e., linear(More)
Cesium (Cs) removal from nuclear liquid wastewater has become an emerging issue for safeguarding public health after the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. A novel macrocyclic ligand of o-benzo-p-xylyl-22-crown-6-ether (OBPX22C6) was developed and successfully immobilized onto mesoporous silica for the preparation of hybrid adsorbent.(More)
We show specific heat data for Na4C60 and Li4C60 in the range 0.4-350 K for samples characterized by Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. At high temperatures, the two different polymer structures have very similar specific heats both in absolute values and in general trend. The specific heat data are compared with data for undoped polymeric and(More)
Harnessing molecular motion to reversibly control macroscopic properties, such as shape and size, is a fascinating and challenging subject in materials science. Here we design a crystalline cobalt(II) complex with an n-butyl group on its ligands, which exhibits a reversible crystal deformation at a structural phase transition temperature. In the(More)
