Review of image low-level feature extraction methods for content-based image retrieval

Shenlong Wang, Kaixin Han, Jiafeng Jin

In the past few decades, the content-based image retrieval (CBIR), which focuses on the exploration of image feature extraction methods, has been widely investigated. The…

Development of an enzyme-based fiber optic biosensor for detection of haloalkanes

Nurul Hazwani Daud, Siti Nurbaya Oslan, Thean Chor Leow, Abu Bakar Salleh

The main purpose of this study is to demonstrate the development of an enzyme-based sensor for haloalkane detection. Haloalkane is a toxic compound that is found as…

Design of the trinitrotoluene biosensor using polydiacetylene conjugated with peptide receptors coated on GR-FETs with colorimetric response

Saeid Masoumi, Hassan Hajghassem

Smart biosensors that can perform sensitive and selective monitoring of target analytes are tremendously valuable for trinitrotoluene (TNT) explosive detection. In this…

Sensor system for use with low intensity pulsed ultrasound

Andreas Diermeier, Dirk Sindersberger, Peter Angele, Richard Kujat, Gareth John Monkman

Ultrasound is a well-established technology in medical science, though many of the conventional measurement systems (hydrophones and radiation force balances [RFBs]) often…

Optimization of internal thread structure of force sensor considering fatigue performance

Hongchun Sun, Tianlu Wang, Xindong Zhang

Fatigue damage of internal threads has gradually become the main failure mode of force sensor. To make the internal thread structure of force sensor meet the fatigue…
