    Article
    Open Access
    Entangled two-photon absorption spectroscopy (TPA) has been widely recognized as a powerful tool for revealing relevant information about the structure of complex molecular systems. However, to date, the experimental ...
  • Ice friction for moving the heavy stones at the ancient Pumapunku complex. A first technological approach to the age problem 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier (2019-06-25)
    External research report
    Open Access
    In this work, ice-lubrication for moving the lithic material at the Tiwanaku complex and particulary at the ancient Pumapunku site is discussed. Ice friction (sliding stones on a sheet of ice) is identified as the most ...
  • Thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of polyester dyeing with Disperse Blue 56 using bio-based auxiliaries and co-solvent microemulsion 

    Radei, Shahram; Carrión Fité, Francisco Javier; Ardanuy Raso, Mònica; Canal Arias, José María (2019-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The aim of the study was to dye polyester fabric with a low molecular weight anthraquinone type disperse dye (C.I. Disperse Blue 56), with n-butylacetate as co-solvent in the microemulsion system and the presence of two ...
  • A review of gerotor technology in hydraulic machines 

    Gámez Montero, Pedro Javier; Codina Macià, Esteban; Castilla López, Roberto (2019-06-24)
    Article
    Open Access
    Over the years, numerous investigations have established the gerotor fundamentals. This work aims to provide a complete review of the literature from the last decade, focusing on the articles published in the past five ...
  • Mining the hydrogen peroxide of Mars for monopropellant rocket fuel 

    Arias Montenegro, Francisco Javier (2019-10-10)
    External research report
    Open Access
    Already since the 1970s, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been suggested as a possible oxidizer of the Martian surface, but until only three decades latter it was finally detected. So far, the interest aroused by planetary ...
  • Integrated monitoring approach for seamless service provisioning in federated clouds 

    Kertesz, Attila; Kecskemeti, Gabor; Marosi, Attila; Oriol Hilari, Marc; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Marco Gómez, Jordi (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Cloud Computing offers simple and cost effective outsourcing in dynamic service environments, and allows the construction of service-based applications using virtualization. By aggregating the capabilities of various IaaS ...
  • Collaborative resolution of requirements mismatches when adopting open source components 

    Anh, Nguyen Duc; Cruzes, Daniela S.; Conradi, Reidar; Höst, Martin; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Ayala Martínez, Claudia Patricia (Springer, 2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    [Context and motivation] There is considerable flexibility in requirements specifications (both functional and non-functional), as well as in the features of available OSS components. This allows a collaborative matching ...
  • Automatic detection of at-most-one and exactly-one relations for improved SAT encodings of pseudo-boolean constraints 

    Ansótegui Gil, Carlos; Bofill Arasa, Miquel; Coll Caballero, Jordi; Dang, Nguyen; Esteban Ángeles, Juan Luis; Miguel, Ian; Nightingale, Peter; Salamon, András Z.; Suy Franch, Josep; Villaret Auselle, Mateu (Springer, 2019)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Pseudo-Boolean (PB) constraints often have a critical role in constraint satisfaction and optimisation problems. Encoding PB constraints to SAT has proven to be an efficient approach in many applications, however care must ...
  • The SUrvey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts – II. New FRB discoveries and their follow-up 

    André, Michel; Bhandari, S.; Keane, Evan F.; Barr, Ewan D. (Oxford University Press, 2018-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    We report the discovery of four Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) in the ongoing SUrvey for Pulsars and Extragalactic Radio Bursts at the Parkes Radio Telescope: FRBs 150610, 151206, 151230 and 160102. Our real-time discoveries ...
  • Applying a foundational ontology to analyze means-end links in the i* framework 

    Guizzardi, Renata Silva Sousa; Franch Gutiérrez, Javier; Guizzardi, Giancarlo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The i* community has raised several main dialects and dozens of variations in the definition of the i* language. Differences may be found related not just to the representation of new concepts but to the very core of the ...
  • EKF-based parameter identification of multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehiclesmodels 

    Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Urzúa Sarquis, Isidro; Grau Saldes, Antoni (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-09-26)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a method for estimating the model parameters of multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicles by means of an extended Kalman filter. Different from test-bed based identification methods, the proposed approach ...
