Practical channel-adaptive video streaming with fountain codes.
Video streaming is sensitive to packet loss, which can severely damage the quality of the received video. Video communication systems that rely on application-layer forward error correction (FEC) to combat packet loss ...
Organic memory devices using C 60 and insulating polymer
(Materials Research Society, 2005)
In this paper, we describe an all organic molecular memory device that combines the advantages of molecular and organic electronics. We accomplish this by combining C 60 molecules with poly(4-vinylphenol) (PVP) and ...
Response of cast austenitic stainless steel to low temperature plasma carburizing.
The response of a cast 316 type austenitic stainless steel to the novel low temperature plasma carburizing process has been investigated in this work. The cast steel has a dendritic structure with a mix of austenite, ferrite ...
Video multicast using unequal error protection with Luby Transform codes.
In a recent work, we proposed a method for unequal error protection with Luby Transform codes and showed that it achieves lower bit error rates than a state of the art technique when the information symbols are partitioned ...
Hybrid plasma surface alloying of austenitic stainless steels with nitrogen and carbon.
A hybrid plasma surface alloying process has been developed for austenitic stainless steels to improve their surface hardness, wear resistance and corrosion resistance. The process is carried out at temperatures below 450 ...
Electrically re-writable non-volatile memory device - using a blend of sea salt and polymer.
Intensive research is currently underway to exploit the highly interesting properties of nano-sized particles and organic molecules for optical, electronic and other applications. Recently, it has been shown that nano-sized ...
Improvement in adhesion of sputtered TiB2 coating onto high speed steel by a chromium interlayer.
(The Japan Institute of Metals, 2008-08-20)
This work addresses at the development of the use of interlayer of different materials for TiB2 coatings with increased adhesion to the substrate and retained high hardness. Ti and Cr were deposited on stationary high ...
Tribological rutile-TiO2 coating on aluminium alloy.
Efficient rate-distortion optimized media streaming for tree-structured packet dependencies
When streaming packetized media data over a lossy packet network, it is desirable to use transmission strategies that minimize the expected distortion subject to a constraint on the expected transmission rate. Because the ...
Gold nanoparticle based electrically rewritable polymer memory devices.
Organic and polymer based electronic devices are currently the subject of a great deal of scientific investigation and development. This interest can be attributed to the low cost, easy processing steps and simple device ...
