The tomato leaf miner Tuta absoluta (Lepidoptera: Gelechiidae) is a devastating pest of tomato originating from South America (García and Espul 1982). Since its initial detection in tomato glasshouses in Spain at the end of 2006, T. absoluta has been spreading rapidly across Europe, northern Africa and Middle East, causing severe damage to tomato crops(More)
In the present work, thermal properties of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and its nano composites are investigated. For this purpose LDPE reinforced with different weight percents of hydroxyapatite (HAP) powder which was synthesized via hydrolysis method are produced. The samples were irradiated with 10MeV electron beam at doses of 75 to 250kGy. Specific(More)
A recent novel development of 50-Hz-HV ECE of 1-mm-thick and 250-µm-thick polycarbonate track detectors (PCTDs) has proved some promising results for some health physics, dosimetry and ion-beam-related applications. The method while proved having some good characteristics for some applications provided a relatively higher background track density (BGTD) in(More)
