  • Abdullah, Nzar (Elsevier BV, 2019-12)
    The transport properties of a wire-dot system coupled to a quantized single photon with linear polarization in a 3D-cavity is theoretically studied using a quantum master equation. The system is also coupled to a photon reservoir, environment. We ...

    The engineered removal of atmospheric CO 2 is now considered a key component of mitigating climate warming below 1.5 °C. Mineral carbonation is a potential negative emissions technique that, in the case of Iceland’s CarbFix experiment, precipitates ...
  • Chetverikov, Andrey; Campana, Gianluca; Kristjansson, Arni (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), 2017-02-28)
    We recently demonstrated that observers are capable of encoding not only summary statistics, such as mean and variance of stimulus ensembles, but also the shape of the ensembles. Here, for the first time, we show the learning dynamics of this process, ...
  • Koziel, Slawomir; Pietrenko-Dabrowska, Anna (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    Design of contemporary microwave components is & x2014;in a large part & x2014;based on full-wave electromagnetic (EM) simulation tools. The primary reasons for this include reliability and versatility of EM analysis. In fact, for many microwave ...
