    A hybrid methodology is proposed for use in low power, safety critical wireless sensor network applications, where quality-of-service orientated transceiver output power control is required to operate in parallel with radio ...
  • Woods, David (Paul Graindor et Henri Grégoire, 2006)
    It is generally accepted at present that the emperor Julian (360-63) was reburied in the Church of the Holy Apostles at Constantinople at some unknown date after his initial burial outside Tarsus in Cilicia in 363. This ...
  • Horgan, Donagh; Murphy, Colin C. (IEEE, 2013-12)
    A simple and novel asymptotic bound for the maximum error resulting from the use of the central limit theorem to approximate the distribution of chi square and noncentral chi square random variables is derived. The bound ...
  • Kennedy, Michael Peter (IEEE, 2000-02)
    A model of the linear R-2R ladder digital-to-analog converter (DAC) is developed in terms of the ratios of the effective resistances at the nodes of the ladder. This formulation demonstrates clearly why an infinite number ...
  • O'Boyle, Noel M.; Banck, Michael; James, Craig A.; Morley, Chris; Vandermeersch, Tim; Hutchison, Geoffrey R. (Chemistry Central, 2011-10-07)
    Background A frequent problem in computational modeling is the interconversion of chemical structures between different formats. While standard interchange formats exist (for example, Chemical Markup Language) and de facto ...
  • O'Boyle, Noel M.; Guha, Rajarshi; Willighagen, Egon L.; Adams, Samuel E.; Alvarsson, Jonathan; Bradley, Jean-Claude; Filippov, Igor V.; Hanson, Robert M.; Hanwell, Marcus D.; Hutchison, Geoffrey R.; James, Craig A James; Jeliazkova, Nina; Lang, Andrew SID; Langner, Karol M.; Lonie, David C.; Lowe, Daniel M.; Pansanel, Jérôme; Pavlov, Dmitry; Spjuth, Ola; Steinbeck, Christoph; Tenderholt, Adam L.; Theisen, Kevin J.; Murray-Rust, Peter (Chemistry Central, 2011-10-14)
    Background The Blue Obelisk movement was established in 2005 as a response to the lack of Open Data, Open Standards and Open Source (ODOSOS) in chemistry. It aims to make it easier to carry out chemistry research by promoting ...
  • O'Riordan, Adrian P. (Computer Science Department, University College Cork, Ireland, 2007-12)
    The goal of this project was to demonstrate the possibilities of open source search engine and aggregation technology in a Web environment by building a meta-search engine which employs free open search engines and open ...
  • Morrison, Alan P. (University College Cork, 1996-12)
    The multiquantum barrier (MQB), proposed by Iga et al in 1986, has been shown by several researchers to be an effective structure for improving the operating characteristics of laser diodes. These improvements include a ...
  • Ward, Jonathan M.; O'Shea, Danny G.; Shortt, Brian J.; Nic Chormaic, Síle (American Institute of Physics, 2007-07-20)
    We experimentally demonstrate optical bistability in Er3+-Yb3+ phosphate glass microspheres at 295 K. Bistability is associated with both Er3+ fluorescence and lasing behavior, and chromatic switching. The chromatic switching ...
  • Deasy, Rebecca E. (University College Cork, 2012-09)
    This thesis describes the optimisation of chemoenzymatic methods in asymmetric synthesis. Modern synthetic organic chemistry has experienced an enormous growth in biocatalytic methodologies; enzymatic transformations and ...
