    Modeling for Sensing Behavior of SnO2-CuO Nanostructures toward H2S Gas

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Boroun, Zhoubin (Author) ; Ghorbani, Mohammad (Supervisor) ; Moosavi, Ali (Supervisor) ; Mohammadpour, Raheleh (Supervisor)
    H2S is a toxic and corrosive gas which is detrimental for both human’s health and some of important industries such as oil and gas. Based on different experimental research among various systems, resistive sensors fabricated from SnO2-CuO nanostructures have promising performance toward detection of this gas. High sensitivity and selectivity, response time of order of seconds, recovery times of order of tens of seconds and determining concentration of H2S gas below ppm level are advantages of this system. Unfortunately due to lack of a theoretical model, current experimental researches are excessively based on “trial and error” methodology. In this research some of the basic questions which... 

    Wavelet packet decomposition of a new filter -based on underlying neural activity- for ERP classification

    , Article 29th Annual International Conference of IEEE-EMBS, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, EMBC'07, Lyon, 23 August 2007 through 26 August 2007 ; 2007 , Pages 1876-1879 ; 05891019 (ISSN) ; 1424407885 (ISBN); 9781424407880 (ISBN) Raiesdana, S ; Shamsollahi, M. B ; Hashemi, M. R ; Rezazadeh, I ; Sharif University of Technology
    This paper introduces a wavelet packet algorithm based on a new wavelet like filter created by a neural mass model in place of wavelet. The hypothesis is that the performance of an ERP based BCI system can be improved by choosing an optimal wavelet derived from underlying mechanism of ERPs. The wavelet packet transform has been chosen for its generalization in comparison to wavelet. We compared the performance of proposed algorithm with existing standard wavelets as Db4, Bior4.4 and Coif3 in wavelet packet platform. The results showed a lowest cross validation error for the new filter in classification of two different kinds of ERP datasets via a SVM classifier. © 2007 IEEE  

    Unbinding of kinesin from microtubule in the strongly bound states enhances under assisting forces

    , Article Molecular Informatics ; Volume 37, Issue 4 , April , 2018 ; 18681743 (ISSN) Khataee, H ; Naseri, S ; Zhong, Y ; Liew, A. W. C ; Sharif University of Technology

    The ability to predict the cellular dynamics of intracellular transport has enormous potential to impact human health. A key transporter is kinesin-1, an ATP-driven molecular motor that shuttles cellular cargos along microtubules (MTs). The dynamics of kinesins depends critically on their unbinding rate from MT, which varies depending on the force direction applied on the motor, i.e. the force-unbinding rate relation is asymmetric. However, it remains unclear how changing the force direction from resisting (applied against the motion direction) to assisting (applied in the motion direction) alters the kinesin's unbinding and stepping. Here, we propose a theoretical model for the influence of... 

    Ultrasound dosimetery using microbubbles

    , Article IFMBE Proceedings, 20 June 2011 through 23 June 2011 ; Volume 35 IFMBE , June , 2011 , Pages 359-362 ; 16800737 (ISSN) ; 9783642217289 (ISBN) Rezayat, E ; Zahedi, E ; Tavakkoli, J ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, a new technique based on nonlinear resonance of microbubbles is investigated in order to estimate the amplitude of an ultrasound wave pressure field. First, the existing theoretical model is reviewed. Then, an experimental setup consisting of a bubble generator and transmitting/receiving ultrasound transducers operating in the 1 MHz frequency range is described. The effect of background noise is also taken into account. Results show that the second harmonic oscillations are detectable, paving the way to develop a quantitative method for in vivo calibration of ultrasound waves  

    Two building blocks of microwave photonics filters in the presence of group delay ripple: A comparative survey

    , Article Optical and Quantum Electronics ; Volume 44, Issue 8-9 , 2012 , Pages 403-414 ; 03068919 (ISSN) Mokhtari, A ; Akbari, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Springer  2012
    We have developed an analytic approach to investigate the effect of group delay ripple of the dispersive devices on the performance of two major building blocks of microwave- photonic filters. Firstly, performance of PM-based block in the presence of an arbitrary group delay ripple (GDR) is analyzed and compared with the ripple-free case to reveal the destructive effects of added group delay ripple. In the next step, we repeat the proposed approach for the AM-based one; again, the performance is compared with the ripple-free case. Two distortion metrics are also introduced to quantify this distortion. Comparison of the performance of two building blocks in the presence of group delay ripple...

    , Article Progress in Electromagnetics Research ; Volume 82 , 2008 , Pages 33-50 ; 10704698 (ISSN) Rajabvand, M ; Behnia, F ; Fatehi, M. T ; Sharif University of Technology
    Electromagnetics Academy  2008
    Tunability of fiber Bragg grating (FBG) in transition region is used to implement wavelength-selective optical intensity modulator, which superimposes a secondary low-speed data on the transit high-speed payload optical signal. Theoretical model of the device is developed and verified by measurements in the linear and nonlinear slopes of the FBG. Experiments with strong and relatively weak gratings confirm the wavelength-selectivity and stability of modulation. The fiber-based modulator is employed for optically tagging or labeling individual wavelength channels using baseband and amplitude-shift keying (ASK) modulated signals. The wavelength-selective channel labeling scheme is useful for...

    , Article International Journal of Thermal Sciences ; Volume 74 , 2013 , Pages 63-71 ; 12900729 (ISSN) Iranidokht, V ; Hamian, S ; Mohammadi, N ; Shafii, M. B ; Sharif University of Technology
    Just a few investigations have been conducted to study the mixed nanofluids(MNs), which contain more than one type of nanoparticles, despite considerable advances in the field of nanofluids thermal conductivity. In present research, by combining different volume fractions of various nanoparticles, the variation of mixed nanofluids thermal conductivity was considered. The mentioned nanofluids have different fabrication cost. First, the effect of each specific nanoparticle presence in the base fluid on the thermal conductivity of nanofluid was surveyed both experimentally and theoretically. Then, the thermal conductivities of two MNs, one consisted of a metallic nanoparticle (high thermal... 

    Theoretical modeling of reinfiltration process in naturally fractured reservoirs: A comparative study on traveling liquid bridges and continuum film flow approaches

    , Article Society of Petroleum Engineers - SPE/EAGE Reservoir Characterization and Simulation Conference 2009 - Overcoming Modeling Challenges to Optimize Recovery, 19 October 2009 through 21 October 2009, Abu Dhabi ; Volume 1 , 2009 , Pages 247-269 ; 9781615677443 (ISBN) Dejam, M ; Ghazanfari, M. H ; Masihi, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Most of the Iranian oil reservoirs are naturally fractured. Reinfiltration is a key proceess which controls oil flow from the upper to the lower matrix block. However, theoretical modeling of fracture aperture as well as fracture dip angle effects on flow rate of drained oil during reinfilteration process remains a topic of debate in the literature. Moreover, there is no reported experience in the literature that compared the oil velocity predicted by traveling oil bridges and continuum film flow approaches. In this work reinfiltration process is modeled through two different approaches: discrete traveling liquid elements and continuum film flow along inclined fractures. For a case study...

    , Article Optics Communications ; Volume 294 , 2013 , Pages 182-187 ; 00304018 (ISSN) Haghighatzadeh, A ; Golnabi, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Both theoretical and experimental results of an optical beam shaping system are investigated in this report. The described system is a two-stage beam shaping device including a fiber-bundle and a prism-duct. A source light is used to illuminate the fiber-bundle and the image of output beam is captured by a CCD camera. The fiber-bundle output beam shape shows a linear arrangement of circular spots lights, which are placed in a rectangular cross section of about 21.37 mm×2.44 mm. In another study, the photograph picture of the prism output beam is taken by a digital camera. The prism output beam cross section is a square shape with a dimension of about 4×4 mm2. According to the experimental... 

    Theoretical modeling of actin-retrograde-flow passing clusters of confined T cell receptors

    Through the activation process of T cells, actin filaments move from the cell periphery toward the cell center. The moving filaments engage with T cell receptors and thus contribute to transportation of the signaling molecules. To study the connection between the moving actin filaments and T cell receptors, an experiment available in the literature has measured filaments flow velocity passing over a region of confined clusters of receptors. It shows that flow velocity decreases in the proximity of the receptors, and then regains its normal value after traversing the region, suggesting a dissipative friction-like connection. In this work, we develop a minimal theoretical model to re-examine... 

    Theoretical modeling and simulation of higher order FWM crosstalks in multichannel WDM optical communication systems

    , Article Advanced Materials Research, Xiamen ; Volume 660 , 2013 , Pages 130-134 ; 10226680 (ISSN) ; 9783037856413 (ISBN) Yazdani, A ; Noshad, M ; Farrokhi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we derive a theoretical model for the higher order FWM power in WDM networks with NZDSF fibers for the first time. We have investigated the higher order FWM power theoretically and by numerical simulations. Dividing the fiber into finite number of elements and applying the boundary conditions, allow us derive an expression for second order power penalty. At the end of each element we derive the first order FWM power for all wavelengths and use these values to calculate the second order FWM power in the next element. Consequently, for each channel we can compute the total second order FWM power penalty at the end of the fiber  

    Theoretical model for visible light saturable absorber nanolithography

    , Article Journal of Optics (United Kingdom) ; Volume 14, Issue 12 , 2012 ; 20408978 (ISSN) Tofighi, S ; Bahrampour, A. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper a saturable absorber medium is employed as an optical limiter to reduce the spot size to the range of several tens of nanometres. The characteristics of a Gaussian beam are theoretically analysed upon propagation through the saturable absorber medium. Based on Maxwell equations a system of coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations for intensity, beam radius and beam curvature is obtained. Theoretical analyses and numerical results show that the behaviour of a Gaussian beam in a saturable absorber medium strongly depends on the initial characteristics of the laser beam. Numerical results indicate that, depending on the initial conditions and a suitable saturable absorber... 

    Theoretical investigation on antioxidant activity of bromophenols from the marine red alga Rhodomela confervoides: H-atom vs electron transfer mechanism

    , Article Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry ; Volume 61, Issue 7 , 2013 , Pages 1534-1541 ; 00218561 (ISSN) Javan, A. J ; Javan, M. J ; Tehrani, Z. A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Bromophenols are known as antioxidant radical scavengers for some biomolecules such as those in marine red alga. Full understanding of the role played by bromophenols requires detailed knowledge of the radical scavenging activities in probable pathways, a focus of ongoing research. To gain detailed insight into two suggested pathways, H-atom transfer and electron transfer, theoretical studies employing first principle quantum mechanical calculations have been carried out on selected bromophenols. Detailed investigation of the aforementioned routes revealed that upon H-atom abstraction or the electron transfer process, bromophenols cause an increase in radical species in which the unpaired... 

    The effect of the physical properties of the substrate on the kinetics of cell adhesion and crawling studied by an axisymmetric diffusion-energy balance coupled model

    , Article Soft Matter ; Volume 11, Issue 18 , Mar , 2015 , Pages 3693-3705 ; 1744683X (ISSN) Samadi Dooki, A ; Shodja, H. M ; Malekmotiei, L ; Sharif University of Technology

    In this paper an analytical approach to study the effect of the substrate physical properties on the kinetics of adhesion and motility behavior of cells is presented. Cell adhesion is mediated by the binding of cell wall receptors and substrate's complementary ligands, and tight adhesion is accomplished by the recruitment of the cell wall binders to the adhesion zone. The binders' movement is modeled as their axisymmetric diffusion in the fluid-like cell membrane. In order to preserve the thermodynamic consistency, the energy balance for the cell-substrate interaction is imposed on the diffusion equation. Solving the axisymmetric diffusion-energy balance coupled equations, it turns out that... 

    Synchronization of two coupled pacemaker cells based on the phase response curve

    , Article Biomedical Signal Processing and Control ; Volume 4, Issue 1 , 2009 , Pages 57-66 ; 17468094 (ISSN) Gholizade Narm, H ; Azemi, A ; Khademi, M ; Karimi Ghartemani, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, the synchronization of a pair of pacemaker cells as Sino-Atrial (SA) and Atrio-Ventricullar (AV) nodes have been studied and a new approach for synchronization, based on the concept of Phase Response Curve (PRC), has been proposed. The paper starts with presenting the necessary and sufficient conditions for synchronization in terms of the PRC parameters. Such conditions are time dependent and thus, the paper proceeds with deriving some sufficient conditions, which are not time dependent. The time-delay between the firing time of SA node and when it reaches the AV node is also considered. When the conditions for spontaneous synchronization are not valid, the synchronization is... 

    Symmetric bursting behaviors in the generalized FitzHugh-Nagumo model

    , Article Biological Cybernetics ; Volume 107, Issue 4 , 2013 , Pages 465-476 ; 03401200 (ISSN) Abbasian, A. H ; Fallah, H ; Razvan, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the current paper, we have investigated the generalized FitzHugh-Nagumo model. We have shown that symmetric bursting behaviors of different types could be observed in this model with an appropriate recovery term. A modified version of this system is used to construct bursting activities. Furthermore, we have shown some numerical examples of delayed Hopf bifurcation and canard phenomenon in the symmetric bursting of super-Hopf/homoclinic type near its super-Hopf and homoclinic bifurcations, respectively  

    Study on the catalytic activity and theoretical modeling of a novel dual acidic mesoporous silica

    , Article RSC Advances ; Volume 4, Issue 32, 2014 , 2014 , Pages 16647-16654 ; ISSN: 20462069 Vafaeezadeh, M ; Fattahi, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    A novel mesoporous silica-functionalized dual Brønsted acidic species has been introduced as an efficient catalyst for solvent-free esterification of fatty acids with ethanol. The structure of the catalyst has been characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), TEM and N2 adsorption-desorption. TGA of catalyst 1 showed no weight loss before 200 °C, indicating a high degree of hydrophobicity of the surface of the mesoporous silica. TEM images and nitrogen adsorption-desorption showed no noticeable changes to the structure of the catalyst before and after acid treatment. pH metric analysis was performed for the catalyst to determine the loading of the acidic sites....

    We report an investigation of the invariant mass spectrum of the two jets with highest transverse momentum in pp→W+2-jet and W+3-jet events to look for resonant enhancement. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 5.0 fb-1 collected with the CMS detector at √s=7 TeV. We find no evidence for the anomalous structure reported by the CDF Collaboration, and establish an upper limit of 5.0 pb at 95% confidence level on the production cross section for a generic Gaussian signal with mass near 150 GeV. Additionally, we exclude two theoretical models that predict a CDF-like dijet resonance near 150 GeV  

    Soft computing method for prediction of co2 corrosion in flow lines based on neural network approach

    An important aspect of corrosion prediction for oil/gas wells and pipelines is to obtain a realistic estimate of the corrosion rate. Corrosion rate prediction involves developing a predictive model that utilizes commonly available operational parameters, existing lab/field data, and theoretical models to obtain realistic assessments of corrosion rates. This study presents a new model to predict corrosion rates by using artificial neural network (ANN) systems. The values of pH, velocity, temperature, and partial pressure of the CO2 are input variables of the network and the rate of corrosion has been set as the network output. Among the 718 data sets, 503 of the data were implemented to find...

    Aggregating fine-granular data measurements from smart meters presents an opportunity for utility companies to learn about consumers' power consumption patterns. Several research studies have shown that power consumption patterns can reveal a range of information about consumers, such as how many people are in the home, the types of appliances they use, their eating and sleeping routines, and even the TV programs they watch. As we move toward liberalized energy markets, many different parties are interested in gaining access to such data, which has enormous economical, societal, and environmental benefits. However, the main concern is that many such beneficial uses of smart meter big data...
