The optimization of helically symmetric experiment (HSX) for reduced microinstability has been achieved by examining a large set of configurations within a neighborhood of the standard operating configuration. This entailed generating a database of more than 106 magnetic-field configurations for HSX by varying the currents in external coils. Using ...

The dependence of the confinement of a tokamak plasma in L-mode on the magnetic field is explored with a set of dedicated experiments in ASDEX Upgrade and with a theory-based full-radius modelling approach, based on the ASTRA transport code and the TGLF-SAT2 transport model and only using engineering parameters in input, like those adopted in scali...

Antibacterial activity and mechanical properties of FeCoCr-Ag medium entropy alloys were studied via combinatorial fabrication paired with high-throughput characterizations. It was found that the antibacterial activity and mechanical properties exhibit non-linear dependence on the content of Ag addition. Within the studied alloys, (FeCoCr)80Ag20 po...

The IAEA DEMO Programme Workshop Series was initiated to be the reference forum to debate, evaluate and establish the next steps to be taken within the international fusion community to deliver fusion as a reliable source of clean energy. The DEMO programme refers predominantly to a future magnetic confinement Tokamak design concept, after the ITER...

In this paper, a multi-structure needle-ring electrode argon plasma jet device was designed to investigate the influence of reactor structure parameters and discharge parameters on the length of atmospheric pressure non-equilibrium plasma jet. Specifically, the effects of the discharge voltage, the electrode gap, the distance between the end of the...

Limited research has been conducted on the formation mechanism of chemically active species in streamer discharges with respect to the oxygen concentration, which is critical to various applications such as ozone generation, air purification, and plasma-assisted combustion, among others. Herein, the oxygen concentration in an N2/O2 gas atmosphere i...

Bioemulsions are attractive platforms for the expansion of adherent cells in bioreactors. Their design relies on the self-assembly of protein nanosheets at liquid–liquid interfaces, displaying strong interfacial mechanical properties and promoting integrin-mediated cell adhesion. However, most systems developed to date have focused on fluorinated o...

Objective. Characterizing the relationship between neuron spiking and the signals that electrodes record is vital to defining the neural circuits driving brain function and informing clinical brain-machine interface design. However, high electrode biocompatibility and precisely localizing neurons around the electrodes are critical to defining this ...

In the current paper, we investigated a spherically symmetric anisotropic solution by applying the gravitational decoupling approach in the context of the vanishing complexity factor condition Contreras and Stuchlik, (2022, Eur Phys J C 82 706) in f(Q) gravity theory for the first time. A relation between the gravitational potentials for a spherica...

Asynchronous breathing (AB) during mechanical ventilation (MV) may lead to a detrimental effect on the patient’s condition. Due to the massive amount of data displayed in a large ICU, a machine learning algorithm (MLA) was proposed extensively to extract the patterns within the multiple continuous-in-time vital signs, to determine which are the var...
