  • Partial discharge (PD) usually occurs before the insulation failure of gas-insulated-switchgear (GIS). Early failures in GIS can be detected effectively by monitoring the vibration signal initia ... Read More

  • An enhanced solution method, which is based on the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) of the projection plane, is proposed. The method utilizes a 2D target and an optimization process to achiev ... Read More

  • The autofocus system has gained popularity in over 40 years. Embedded in a camera, it is able to bring the best focused image to the viewer within a few seconds, which frees users from focusing ... Read More

  • In this study, we evaluate the thermal oxidization methods of iridium to simplify the fabrication of Ir/IrOx pH microsensors. Iridium oxide (IrOx) is a typical pH-sensing material. Specifically, ... Read More

  • A uric acid biosensor aimed at a simplified determination of salivary uric acid was fabricated and utilized for measurement of diurnal variation of salivary uric acid. The biosensor measures uric ... Read More

  • Sake brewing is a complicated process. Different kinds of sake with various tastes are produced depending on the raw materials [e.g., rice, water, rice malt (koji), and sake yeast (kobo)], brewi ... Read More

  • Wettability is an important feature describing the physicochemical surface properties of material surfaces. It can be determined by measurements of the contact angle. A plasma jet reactor with di ... Read More
