The phenomenal growth of mobile data demand has brought about increasing scarcity in available radio spectrum. Meanwhile, mobile customers pay more attention to their own experience especially in communication reliability and service continuity on the move. To address these issues, LTE-unlicensed (LTE-U) is considered as one of the latest groundbreaking(More)
Surfactant soil washing can remove polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from contaminated soil, and the white rot fungus, Phanerochaete chrysosporium Burdsall in Burdsall & Eslyn, can oxidize PAHs. The objective of this study was to develop a novel bioremediation technology using a combination of abiological surfactant soil washing followed by PAH(More)
This article has been accepted for publication in a future issue of this journal, but has not been fully edited. Content may change prior to final publication. Abstract—Recent advances in micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) technology have boosted the deployment of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Limited by energy storage capability of sensor nodes, it(More)
A mesocosm experiment was conducted to study the effects of commercial microbial agents (probiotics) on the phytoplankton community structure in a shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) farm located in Yinzhou-Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of the phytoplankton were examined along with physico-chemical parameters in the ponds(More)
In this study, an elevated non-ionic surfactant critical micelle concentration (CMC) in a soil/aqueous system was examined. Experimental measurements have been made of surfactant solubilization of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) (i.e. fluoranthene and pyrene) in a 5-month aged PAH contaminated soil, as well as surfactant sorption onto soil.(More)
An ELISA Microtiter Plate, Total Aflatoxin Test called AgraQuant® was validated to measure total aflatoxins in a range from 4 to 40 ppb in corn, corn meal, corn gluten feed, corn gluten meal, corn germ meal, corn/soy blend, popcorn, sorghum, wheat, milled rice, soybeans, peanuts and cottonseed. The test is performed as a solid phase direct competitive ELISA(More)
—In this paper, we analyze the user accommodation capabilities of LTE-A systems with carrier aggregation for the LTE users and LTE-A users, respectively. The adopted performance metric is equivalent capacity (EC), defined as the maximum number of users allowed in the system given the user QoS requirements. Specifically, both LTE and LTE-A users are divided(More)
—In this paper, we study the resource allocation in a device-to-device (D2D) communication underlaying green cellular network, where the base station (BS) is powered by sustainable energy. Our objective is to enhance the network sustainability and efficiency by introducing power control and cooperative communication. Specifically, we propose optimal power(More)
In this paper, we propose an energy-efficient location-aware clone detection protocol in densely deployed WSNs, which can guarantee successful clone attack detection and maintain satisfactory network lifetime. Specifically, we exploit the location information of sensors and randomly select witnesses located in a ring area to verify the legitimacy of sensors(More)
—Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) standard with Carrier Aggregation (CA) is emerging as a promising technology for 4G mobile communication systems to fulfill tremendous growth of high-data-rate demand. However, in LTE-A systems with CA, the uplink Radio Resource Management (RRM) performance is greatly limited by the insufficient user transmission power(More)
