FLEXIBLE PH SENSOR WITH POLYANILINE LAYER BASED ON IMPEDANCE MEASUREMENT

Cheng-Hsin Chuang/ Hsun-Pei Wu/ Cheng-Ho Chen/ Peng-Rong Wu

A flexible sensor with conducting polyaniline layer for detecting pH value based on the impedance measurement is fabricated and demonstrated in this study. The pH sensor consists of an interdigital electrode array on a flexible printed circuit and a thin-film polyaniline as the sensing layer. As the conductivity of polyaniline depends on the redox state, the impedance change of the polyaniline after it has reacted with different pH value solutions works as the sensing mechanism. In order to obta(..)

Mohammad Keshmiri/ Ali Fellah Jahromi/ Abolfazl Mohebbi/ Mohammad Hadi Amoozgar/ Wen-Fang Xie

The ball and beam system is a laboratory equipment with high nonlinearity in its dynamics. The aims of this research are to model the ball and beam system considering nonlinear factors and coupling effect and to design controllers to control the ball position. The LQR is designed considering two Degrees-of-Freedom and coupling dynamics. The parameters of the LQR are tuned using Genetic Algorithm (GA). Jacobian linearization method is used to linearize the system around operating-point. Due to th(..)

Capacitive Sensor Design Utilizing Conformal Mapping Methods

N. Eidenberger/ B. G. Zagar

In this work we demonstrate the advantages of conformal mapping methods for the design of capacitive sensor setups. If the setups are modeled appropriately, the respective Laplace equa-tions can be solved utilizing conformal mapping methods. These methods yield the equations de-scribing the electric field of the sensor setups. The field equations contain the distinct geometric properties of the sensor setups. An in depth analysis of these equations permits the optimization of the sensor setups w(..)

Yu-Chu M. Li/ Wei-Chin Chang/ Chao-Ming Huang/ Tsung-Yen Tsai/ Yen-Hong A. Chen

Light response of a pachira aquatica’s leaf at room temperature was investigated with a strong p-wave electromagnetic field by utilizing a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) based sensor technique of angular interrogation method for biological and chemical sensing. The essential principle of SPR biosensing is based on measurement of the change regarding leaf’s microstructure against the sensor’s metallic surface owing to the interaction with the strong p-wave electromagnetic field. The test result (..)

FEEDFORWARD CONTROL OF TEMPERATURE-INDUCED HEAD SKEW FOR HARD DISK DRIVES

Yong Xiao/ Chi Zhang/ Xiaoyu Ge/ Peiqi Pan

In hard disk drives (HDDs), head skew error among multiple heads is calibrated during manufacturing process, and will be implemented prior to head switching seeks. In operational environment, additional head skew deviation due to temperature drift may be observed, which could introduce heavy handling burden for feedback controller along with unacceptable noise to HDD customers. Therefore, a thorough analysis of head skew variation against temperature is carried out in this paper. With help of ac(..)

A REVIEW OF ARTIFICIAL FISH SWARM OPTIMIZATION METHODS AND APPLICATIONS

Mehdi Neshat/ Ali Adeli/ Ghodrat Sepidnam/ Mehdi Sargolzaei/ Adel Najaran Toosi

The Swarm Intelligence is a new and modern method employed in optimization problems. The Swarm Intelligence method is based on the en masse movement of living animals like birds, fishes, ants and other social animals. Migration, seeking for food and fighting with enemies are social behaviors of animals. Optimization principle is seen in these animals. The Artificial Fish Swarm Optimization (AFSA) method is one of the Swarm Intelligence approaches that works based on the population and stochastic(..)

MONITORING OF NITRATES AND PHOSPHATES IN WASTEWATER: CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES AND FURTHER CHALLENGES

O. Korostynska/ A. Mason/ A. Al-Shamma’a

Consumers expect water supply companies to deliver safe drinking water that meets both health quality standards and aesthetic requirements such as colour, turbidity, taste and odour. Current water quality assessment methods of these parameters, which form the basis for sound water resources management, are mainly laboratory based, require fresh supply of chemicals, trained staff and are time consuming. Real-time water quality monitoring is essential for National and International Health and Safe(..)

Air pollution is one of environmental issues that cannot be ignored. The heavy transportation and urbanization result in the air pollutants concentrated in certain areas. Inhaling pollutants for a long time causes damages in human health. Traditional air quality monitoring methods, such as building air quality monitoring stations, are typically expensive. In addition, monitoring stations are generally less densely deployed and provide low resolution sensing data. This paper proposes an urban air(..)
