    Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the fourth most common cause of death from cancer in the world and second most common (behind lung cancer) in developed countries. In recent years there has been much interest in the potential ...
  • Doran, Justin; Jordan, Declan; O'Leary, Eoin (Taylor & Francis Ltd., 2012-08)
    This paper tests whether more frequent interaction at different spatial levels has a positive effect on the innovation performance of SMEs in the South-West and South-East of Ireland.  Based on an original survey, it finds ...
  • Klostermann, Katja; Crispie, Fiona; Flynn, James; Meaney, William; Ross, R. Paul; Hill, Colin (Cambridge University Press, 2010)
    On most dairy farms teat dips are applied to the teats of cows either before or after milking in order to prevent pathogens from gaining access to the mammary gland via the teat canal. In the present experiments, a natural ...

    Existing Building/Energy Management Systems (BMS/EMS) fail to convey holistic performance to the building manager. A 20% reduction in energy consumption can be achieved by efficiently operated buildings compared with ...
  • Cashman, David P. (University College Cork, 2010)
    There has been an increased use of the Doubly-Fed Induction Machine (DFIM) in ac drive applications in recent times, particularly in the field of renewable energy systems and other high power variable-speed drives. The ...
  • Foley, Aoife M.; Winning, Ian; Ó Gallachóir, Brian P. (Irish Transport Research Network, 2010-09)
    In 2009 the European Union (EU) Directive on Renewable Energy placed an obligation on each Member State to ensure that 10% of transport energy (excluding aviation and marine transport) come from renewable sources by 2020. ...
  • Buckley, D. Noel; O'Dwyer, Colm; Lynch, Robert P.; Quill, Nathan (The Electrochemical Society, 2011-01)
    We review our recent work on anodic formation of nanoporosity in n-InP in aqueous KOH. Typically, a nanoporous sub-surface region is formed beneath a thin, dense near-surface layer. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) shows ...
  • Lewis, Liam; Casey, Declan P.; Jeyaseelan, Arockia Vimal; Rohan, James F.; Maaskant, Pleun P. (American Institute of Physics, 2008-02)
    A solution based approach to forming Ohmic contacts to p-type GaN is described. Electroless plated Ni/Au contacts are shown to compare favorably with traditional evaporated contacts, with contact resistivities rho(c) in ...
  • Verdonck, Michèle Claire; Chard, Gill; Nolan, Maeve (Informa Healthcare, 2011-05)
    Purpose. This study explores the experiences of Irish people with high cervical spinal cord injuries living with electronic aids to daily living (EADL) and the meaning attributed to such systems in the context of participation ...
  • Zhao, Jian; Ellis, Andrew D. (IEEE , Optical Society of America, 2011-02-01)
    In order to improve the performance of optically multiplexed multicarrier systems with channel spacing equal to the symbol rate per carrier, we propose and systematically investigate an electronic signal processing technique ...
  • Doherty, William G. (University College Cork, 2003)
    The phosphorescence excitation spectra of two thiones, 4-H-1-xanthione (XT) and 4-H-1-pyrane-4-thione (PT), cooled in a supersonic jet were investigated. The vibronic lineshape of the T1z origin of PT measured by cavity ...
  • Lee, Alice S.; Law, James; Gibbon, Fiona E. (John Wiley & Sons Publishers, 2009-10)
    Cleft palate is the most common congenital deformity of the face. It could affect speech acquisition, resulting in articulation errors that could persist into adulthood. Electropalatography (EPG) has been used in speech ...
  • Byrne, Edmond P. (World Congress of Chemical Engineering, 2009-08-23)
