    Selimi, Mennan; Lertsinsrubtavee, Adisorn; Sathiaseelan, Arjuna; Cerdà Alabern, Llorenç; Navarro Moldes, Leandro (2019-12-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    Edge computing is radically shaping the way Internet services are run by enabling computations to be available close to the users - thus mitigating the latency and performance challenges faced in today’s Internet infrastructure. ...
  • Fast visible and extended nearinfrared multispectral fundus camera 

    Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Gonzalez, Laura; Mateo, Carlos; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (2019-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    We present a multispectral fundus camera that performs fast imaging of the ocular posterior pole in the visible and near-infrared (400 to 1300 nm) wavelengths through 15 spectral bands, using a flashlight source made of ...
  • Towards scalable Community Networks topologies 

    Maccari, Leonardo; Gemmi, Gabriele; Lo Cigno, Renato; Karaliopoulos, Merkourios; Navarro Moldes, Leandro (Elsevier, 2019-11)
    Article

    Community Networks (CNs) are grassroots bottom-up initiatives that build local infrastructures, normally using Wi-Fi technology, to bring broadband networking in areas with inadequate offer of traditional infrastructures ...
  • A dynamic load balancing method for the evaluation of chemical reaction rates in parallel combustion simulations 

    Muela Castro, Jordi; Borrell Pol, Ricard; Ventosa Molina, Jordi; Jofre Roca, Lluís; Lehmkuhl Barba, Oriol; Pérez Segarra, Carlos David (Elsevier, 2019-08-15)
    Article

    The development and assessment of an efficient parallelization method for the evaluation of reaction rates in combustion simulations is presented. Combustion simulations where the finite-rate chemistry model is employed ...
  • High Efficiency Colloidal Quantum Dot Infrared Light Emitting Diodes via Engineering at the Supra-Nanocrystalline Level 

    Pradhan, Santanu; DiStasio, Francesco; Bi, Yu; Gupta, Shuchi; Christodoulou, Sotirios; Stavrinadis, Alexandros; Konstantatos, Gerasimos (Nature, 2018-12-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    Colloidal quantum dot (CQD) light-emitting diodes (LEDs) deliver a compelling performance in the visible, yet infrared CQD LEDs underperform their visible-emitting counterparts, largely due to their low photoluminescence ...
  • Hyperspectral eye fundus imaging with extended spectral range towards the near infrared 

    Alterini, Tommaso; Díaz Douton, Fernando; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Eye fundus photography routinely used in clinical practice is restricted to color imaging of the retina. In the last years, hyperspectral imaging has shown to be a powerful tool for the spectral analysis of biological ...
  • Study of skin cancer lesions through multispectral and 3D techniques 

    Rey Barroso, Laura; Burgos Fernández, Francisco Javier; Ares Rodríguez, Miguel; Royo Royo, Santiago; Delpueyo, Xana; Puig, Susana; Malvehy Guilera, Josep; Pellacani, Giovanni; Vilaseca Ricart, Meritxell (International Society for Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The effective and non-invasive diagnosis of skin cancer is a hot topic in biophotonics since the current gold standard, biopsy followed by histological examination, is a slow and costly procedure for the healthcare system. ...
  • Extending 2-D space vector PWM for three-phase four-leg inverters 

    Heredero Peris, Daniel; Llonch Masachs, Marc; Chillón Antón, Cristian; Bergas Jané, Joan Gabriel; Pagès Giménez, Marc; Sumper, Andreas; Montesinos Miracle, Daniel (2019-05-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper proposes a novel Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation strategy extending conventional 2-D SVPWM strategies for its use in three-phase four-leg inverters. The methodology is based on the segregation of the zero ...
  • YOLO: Speeding Up VM and Docker Boot Time by Reducing I/O Operations 

    Nguyen, Thuy L.; Nou Castell, Ramon; Lebre, Adrien (Springer, 2019)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Although this comes as a surprise, the time to boot a Docker-based container can last as long as a virtual machine in high consolidated cloud scenarios. Because this time is critical as boot duration defines how an application ...
  • Introducing the Task-Aware Storage I/O (TASIO) Library 

    Roca Nonell, Aleix; Beltran Querol, Vicenç; Mateo Bellido, Sergi (Springer, 2019-08-09)
    Part of book or chapter of book
    Open Access
    Task-based programming models are excellent tools to parallelize and seamlessly load balance an application workload. However, the integration of I/O intensive applications and task-based programming models is lacking. ...
  • On the discretization of the ice thickness distribution in the NEMO3.6-LIM3 global ocean–sea ice model 

    Massonnet, François; Barthélemy, Antoine; Worou, Koffi; Fichefet, Thierry; Vancoppenolle, Martin; Rousset, Clément; Moreno-Chamarro, Eduardo (European Geosciences Union (EGU), 2019-08-27)
    Article
    Open Access
    The ice thickness distribution (ITD) is one of the core constituents of modern sea ice models. The ITD accounts for the unresolved spatial variability of sea ice thickness within each model grid cell. While there is a ...
