Localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR)-based nano-biosensors are of great interest in various applications such as environmental protection, biotechnology, and food safety. It is well known that types of materials and ...
We propose a novel way to trap and manipulate nano-objects above a dielectric substrate using an apertureless near-field probe. A combination of evanescent illumination and light scattering at the probe apex is used to ...

We show that the photonic confinement induced by a photonic crystal can be exploited to trap nanoparticles. As demonstrated by the recent advances in the design and fabrication of photonic crystals slab structures, total ...
The current paper presents the reliability-based optimization of the location and feedback gains of active bar in a closed-loop control system for random smart truss structures under stationary random excitation. The ...
This paper gives constructions for optimal and near-optimal sets of pairs for the estimation of main effects, and for the estimation of main effects and two factor interactions, in forced choice experiments in which all ...
This paper addresses the optimization and stabilization problems of nonlinear systems subject to parameter uncertainties. The methodology is based on a fuzzy logic approach and an improved genetic algorithm (GA). The TSK ...

We formulate a general model of a commercial bank and its regulator where the bank's loans are exposed to default risk. The bank's objective is to maximise equity value by appropriately controlling the rate at which new ...
In the on-demand cloud environment, web application providers have the potential to scale virtual resources up or down to achieve cost-effective outcomes. True elasticity and cost-effectiveness in the pay-per-use cloud ...

This paper constructs a local operation and classical communication protocol that achieves the global optimality of conclusive discrimination of any two pure states with arbitrary a priori probability. This can be interpreted ...
Plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) appear to offer a promising option for mitigating greenhouse emission. However, uncoordinated PEV charging can weaken the reliability of power systems. The proper accommodation of PEVs in ...
Continuing with a set of enabling techniques for the optimal coordination of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) in Part I, we present a case study in this paper using techniques based on the data collected in the Beijing-Tianjin- ...

We examine dense coding with an arbitrary pure entangled state sharing between the sender and the receiver. Upper bounds on the average success probability in approximate dense coding and on the probability of conclusive ...
Several optimal design schemes of a single-sided linear induction motor (SLIM) adopted in linear metro are presented in this paper. Firstly, the equivalent circuit of SLIM fully considering the end effects, half-filled ...
Designing a magnetic adhesion system for climbing robots requires careful selection of design parameters to achieve a feasible solution. There are many considerations which must be taken into account, such as, size constraints ...
