  • Adaptive scheme for incremental step pulse programming of flash memory

    According to an adaptive programming method for flash memories, the cell programming speed is detected by programming a number of cells using a fixed trial program voltage. A starting program voltage Vstart is then adjusted based on the detected cell programming speed. The ISPP is then carried out using the adjusted value for Vstart.

  • Method for synthesizing cationic bleach activators via a single-bath reaction

    The present invention provides a method for synthesizing cationic bleach activators via a single-bath reaction, comprising steps of: separately dissolving 4-chloromethylbenoyl chloride and lactam in its respective solvent, adding an acid-binding agent to the lactam solution, next adding dropwisely 4-chloromethylbenoyl chloride solution into the lactam/acid binding-agent solution, and finally adding tertiary amine to the solution above to make a reaction solution, which is further treated with mixing and refluxing. The washed and dried final product is TBLC cationic bleach activator. The method of the present invention greatly simplifies the synthesizing process and lowers the stringency of reaction conditions for preparing cationic bleach activators (TBLC). At the same time, the present method produces TBLC cationic bleach activators with high yields, making it a suitable option for industrial production of these bleach activators.

  • Mean-Variance Asset Liability Management with State-Dependent Risk Aversion

    Yan Zhang   Yonghong Wu   Shuang Li   Benchawan Wiwatanapataphee  

    This article investigates the asset liability management problem with state-dependent risk aversion under the mean-variance criterion. The investor allocates the wealth among multiple assets including a risk-free asset and multiple risky assets governed by a system of geometric Brownian motion stochastic differential equations, and the investor faces the risk of paying uncontrollable random liabilities. The state-dependent risk aversion is taken into account in our model, linking the risk aversion to the current wealth held by the investor. An extended Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman system is established for the optimization of asset liability management, and by solving the extended Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman system, the analytical closed-form expressions for the time-inconsistent optimal investment strategies and the optimal value function are derived. Finally, numerical examples are presented to illustrate our results.

  • Imitation-tumor targeting based on continuous-wave near-infrared tomography

    Dan Liu   Xin Liu   Yan Zhang   Qisong Wang   Jingyang Lu   Jinwei Sun  

    Continuous-wave Near-Infrared (NIR) optical spectroscopy has shown great diagnostic capability in the early tumor detection with advantages of low-cost, portable, non-invasive, and non-radiative. In this paper, Modified Lambert-Beer Theory is deployed to address the low-resolution issues of the NIR technique and to design the tumor detecting and imaging system. Considering that tumor tissues have features such as high blood flow and hypoxia, the proposed technique can detect the location, size, and other information of the tumor tissues by comparing the absorbance between pathological and normal tissues. Finally, the tumor tissues can be imaged through tomographic method. The simulation experiments prove that the proposed technique and designed system can efficiently detect the tumor tissues, achieving imaging precision within 1 mm. The work of the paper has shown great potential in the diagnosis of tumor close to body surface.

  • Exhaust gas separating tower and exhaust gas separating and recycling system

    The invention relates to an exhaust gas separating tower, comprising a washing section, a flash-distilling section above the washing section, and a liquid seal means between the flash flash-distilling section and the washing section. The washing section is configured for washing exhaust gas entering the tower with a cooling liquid to at least partially remove solid dust entrained in the exhaust gas, cool the exhaust gas, and condense at least a portion of moisture in the exhaust gas into liquid. The flash-distilling section is configured for flash-distilling the cooling liquid from the washing section to produce a cooled cooling liquid and a cooling liquid vapor. The liquid seal means is configured so that the cooling liquid produced by flash-distillation can enter the washing section through the liquid seal means while the flash-distilling section is in gas-phase isolation from the washing section, wherein a pressure in the flash-distilling section is lower than that in the washing section.

  • Ge4+, Eu3+-codoped Y2SiO5 as a novel red phosphor for white LED applications

    Yan Zhang   Yuanyuan Dong   Jiayue Xu and Bo Wei  

    The phosphors Y2SiO5: Ge4+, Eu3+ were synthesized by solid state reaction method assisted by flux, and have been characterized by X-ray powder diffraction and fluorescence spectrometer. The results showed that the phosphors can be effectively excited by near-UV (394 nm), and the major peak is located at 611 nm ascribed to the electric-dipole 5D0 → 7F2 transition of Eu3+, the critical quenching concentration of Eu3+ in the phosphor is determined to be 15 mol% and the critical transfer distance is calculated as 8.90 Å. Co-doping Y2SiO5: Eu3+ with Ge4+ helps to improve the luminescence intensity and color purity. The red emission of the phosphor under 394 nm excitation shows a good chromaticity index (0.652, 0.347) compared to commercial red phosphors Y2O2S: Eu3+ (0.631, 0.350). The quantum efficiency of the Y2Si0.97O5: 0.03Ge4+, 0.15Eu3+phosphor under 394 nm excitation is estimated to be 45.24%. It can be concluded that efficient red light emitting diodes were fabricated using Ge4+, Eu3+ co-doped phosphor based on near ultraviolet(NUV) excited LED lights.
