Energy harvesting-aware resource management for wireless body area networks by Ernesto Antonio Ibarra Ramirez( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rationale for a telemedicine system is the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) for the remote transmission of biomedical data and the remote control of biomedical equipment, in order to improve the provided health service. The integration of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) in telemedicine systems does not only achieve significant improvements in the patient's healthcare, but also enhances their quality of life. However, the potential benefits provided by these networks are limited by the energy constraints imposed when traditional batteries are used as the power source, since the replacement or recharging of these is not always an easy task. To that end, harvesting energy from the human environment can be a promising solution to the aforementioned problems. In this context, it is important to design efficient energy-aware medium access and resource management schemes to exploit the benefits of energy harvesting while guaranteeing the Quality of Service (QoS) in the network. This dissertation provides a contribution to the design and evaluation of novel solutions focused on energy-aware resource management for WBANs powered by human energy harvesting. In particular, our proposals are oriented to solve the problems caused by the differences in energy levels experienced by nodes due to their power supply by energy harvesting. The main thesis contributions are divided into two parts. The first part presents HEH-BMAC, an energy-aware hybrid-polling Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol for WBANs powered by human energy harvesting. HEH-BMAC is designed to provide medium access taking into account the capabilities of each node with respect to their energy profile. HEH-BMAC combines two types of access mechanisms, i.e., reserved polling access and probabilistic random access, in order to adapt the network operation to the types of human energy harvesting sources. The HEH-BMAC performance in terms of normalized throughput and energy efficiency is assessed by means of extensive computer-based simulations, revealing a good adaptation to potential changes in the energy harvesting rate, packet inter-arrival time and network size. HEH-BMAC has been proven to outperform IEEE 802.15.6 Standard for WBANs in terms of normalized throughput and energy efficiency, as the number of nodes increases under the same conditions of energy harvesting. The second part of the thesis is dedicated to the design and evaluation of PEH-QoS, a Power-QoS control scheme for body nodes powered by energy harvesting. PEH-QoS is designed to use efficiently the harvested energy and ensure that all transmitted packets are useful in a medical context, hence substantially improving the offered QoS. The obtained results show that this scheme efficiently manages the data queue, thus improving the node operation and optimizing the data transmission, and also provides QoS, while maintaining the node in energy neutral operation state

Novel sensors technologies applied to force spectroscopy in molecular biology by Laura Gonzalez Claramonte( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Force plays an essential role in all fields of biology. Measurement of these forces with high precision provides information about the structure, dynamics, intra and intermolecular interactions, and the mechanical properties of the biomolecules and, in general, about molecular basis of diverse biological phenomena. Different techniques have been developed to address this task, particularly at the single molecule level. The main objective accomplished in this work of thesis is the development of sensors technologies applied to force spectroscopy measurements and the demonstration of its possibilities in real molecular studies. Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) is a fast growing technology that has been the source for the development of an immense variety of applications to investigate materials and molecules at nanoscale. As another technology, SPM is constantly improving through different advances in instrumentation level and the emergence of new applications. From the analysis of the main limitations of quartz tuning fork (QTF) based nanosensors on one side and the conventional force spectroscopy with cantilever tips on the other side, the main considerations have been determined for the technological developments on force microscopy applications. One of the main limitations of tuning fork probes is that they are usually custom-made because no commercial probes suitable for a wide range of experiments are available. The custom-made devices show considerable variation in dynamic response, poor lateral resolution and the characterization of the sensors remains unclear for force quantification. A new controller is developed to ensure the same dynamic response of different sensors in order to maintain the conditions in which the measurements are conducted. Also, a new method to improve lateral resolution of the QTF probes when working in liquid is proposed in this thesis based on attaching a standard AFM tip to the end of the fiber probe which has been previously sharpened. A method to calculate the spring constant of the QTF based sensors from easily measurable parameters is presented in this thesis. The method is based on a finite element analysis (FEA) model which includes the electrical part and can be used to calculate the spring constant of a QTF accurately for quantitative measurements. Results obtained in real biological experiments are promising and show the possibilities of the shear force microscopy improvements developed in this work of thesis. In a first experiment, a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of micropatterned antibodies was imaged with three different techniques and in a second experiment, a molecular interaction analysis was done between biotin- streptavidin complex and results are compared with those obtained with AFM tip. The main problem for comparing steered molecular dynamics (SMD) simulation results with experimental data is that SMD simulations were restricted to nanosecond timescales (due to the high computational demand of all-atomistic simulations). A high-speed force spectroscopy methodology has been developed to achieve rates comparable to SMD simulations. The validation of the technique is performed with titin unfolding measurements allowing the direct comparison of experimental and simulated forces
Caracterización eléctrica de muestras biológicas con resonadores de cuarzo como nanosensores by Luis Botaya Turón( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La caracterización eléctrica local a escala nanométrica cobra un rol esencial en diversos campos de la biología. La caracterización eléctrica de muestras biológicas proporciona una visión sobre diferentes aspectos de éstas, como su relación con el medio o su comportamiento químico. Las microscopías por sonda de barrido (SPM) son unas de las principales herramientas para realizar este tipo de medidas. Estas microscopías se basan en la caracterización de muestras a nivel local a partir del control de las interacciones que aparecen entre la punta (extremo del sensor) y la muestra, principalmente la corriente túnel (STM - Scanning Tunneling Microscope) o las fuerzas atómicas (AFM - Atomic Force Microscope). En el STM, cuando una punta metálica afilada se sitúa suficientemente cerca de una muestra conductora, gracias al efecto túnel, aparece una corriente circulante entre ambas. Controlando esta corriente, se consigue regular la distancia entre ambas, pero restringiéndose su uso con muestras conductoras. Como evolución, el AFM detecta las fuerzas atómicas entre punta y muestra, posibilitando trabajar con cualquier tipo de muestra independientemente de sus propiedades eléctricas. La necesidad de caracterizar eléctricamente una muestra ha llevado a la aparición de diferentes soluciones para combinar ambas medidas AFM/STM. Una de las técnicas más extendidas es el uso del resonador de cuarzo (QTF - Quartz tuning fork) y una punta metálica como nanosensor de conductividad y AFM. El principal objetivo de esta tesis es el desarrollo de plataformas tecnológicas de gran precisión para la caracterización eléctrica de muestras biológicas a nivel nanométrico basadas en las técnicas AFM/STM. Una de las mayores limitaciones de las soluciones existentes para trabajar con el QTF como sensor C-AFM (Conductive AFM), es la necesidad de trabajar en la configuración Qplus, donde el QTF se debe excitar mecánicamente, siendo difícil cuantificar las medidas de fuerza realizadas; además, este modo obliga a trabajar con la punta vibrando perpendicularmente a la muestra con lo que se deben usar complejos sistemas para procesar ambas señales (fuerza y corriente) al ser adquiridas a través del mismo electrodo. En este trabajo se presenta un nuevo microscopio C-AFM basado en un QTF con una punta metálica acoplada sin adhesivo y en configuración Shear (oscilando en paralelo a la superficie de la muestra). Esta técnica se sustenta en el diseño de un cabezal que permite contactar un extremo del QTF con la punta, detectando las fuerzas y adquiriendo la corriente simultáneamente. El resonador se excita eléctricamente lo que posibilita una posterior cuantificación de las medidas. En este trabajo se presenta su validación a partir de medidas C-AFM sobre muestras de calibración. A partir de los diferentes resultados obtenidos y una vez observado el potencial de esta tecnología, se adaptó este sistema a una plataforma robótica multipunta. Esta plataforma está compuesta por dos nanoherramientas adaptadas para realizar medidas C-AFM. Cada una controlada por dos sistemas de posicionamiento ultrapreciso (movimiento micrométrico y nanométrico) junto a un microscopio óptico para el control del posicionamiento relativo de los sensores y la muestra. Este trabajo presenta diferentes validaciones con sistemas de calibración, demostrando la capacidad de esta plataforma para trabajar con dos nanoherramientas C-AFM simultáneas y capaces de realizar medidas diferenciales de impedancia. Una vez validado el sistema con la medida de capacidades discretas de valor conocido, se han realizado medidas de la impedancia de micropartículas de aluminio. Los últimos experimentos realizados sobre muestras de interés, muestran todo el potencial de estos equipos, capaces de realizar imágenes C-AFM sobre diferentes bacterias, determinar patrones en los tiempos de cultivo de biolfilms a partir de su impedancia, y situarse sobre micropartículas deseadas, midiendo su respuesta eléctrica. Además, se presentan otras tecnologías desarrolladas aplicadas a estas plataformas, que proporcionan una visualización conceptual de las posibilidades para realizar ensayos electroquímicos a distancia controlada, ofreciendo nuevas posibilidades para ensayos SECM/AFM. Las diferentes prestaciones, posibilidades y resultados mostrados en este trabajo proporcionan una visión de las características y funcionamiento de esta tecnología, así como la gran oportunidad que se presenta en el estudio de las características eléctricas de muestras biológicas a partir de este nuevo punto de vista

Energy Efficient Radio Resource Management for Heterogeneous Networks by Joaquim Manuel Camões Sobral de Bastos( )

"In the continuous evolution of mobile communication systems, there are many issues and aspects to be addressed, as well as in their effective implementation and deployment on cellular networks. In a general way, the most outstanding challenge is how to take the most advantage from the available resources, namely RF spectrum, to satisfy the communication requirements associated to a specific service or application offered to an end user. Energy efficiency has also become one important aspect associated to such requirements, since it has a significant practical impact on operators, namely regarding their networks operational expenditure, as well as on UEs, concerning their battery duration and associated autonomy.This thesis addresses and targets contributing to the growing concerns regarding energy efficiency in the ICT industry, specifically focusing on cellular wireless networks. Moreover, taking into account the current panorama and developments in this field, namely concerning the emerging 5G communication systems and networks, the heterogeneous network (HetNet) concept is also at the core of the work that has been carried out and is presented in this thesis.The work takes into consideration the two ends of the considered system of networks. The first are the nomad end users that should be able to roam freely in such system, always with continuous service provided in a seamless way, and the second is the core network managed by the respective telecommunications operator. To achieve this, the work carried out focused in addressing two key challenges in HetNets in general, specifically towards optimizing the energy efficiency associated to vertical handovers (VHO) and to radio resource management (RRM) mechanisms and approaches to allow energy efficient communication in a HetNet.The work addresses energy efficiency in two different perspectives, each using a different solution exploiting distinct available mechanisms specified for cellular wireless networks. One considers UEs integrating multiple RAT interfaces, and involve a VHO-based solution exploiting IEEE 802.21 standard, and the other targets both core and radio access networks, exploiting a RRM-based solution.The first proposed energy efficient solution exploiting features provided by IEEE 802.21 (MIH/MIIS) and VHO, targeting energy saving at modern multi-RAT mobile UEs, can eventually reduce the energy consumption at their RAT interfaces by roughly 30% on average, with a straightforward implementation, according to the attained simulation results. However, the currently proposed scheme presents a trade-off in terms of added packet loss linked to UEs velocity, which is mostly caused by delayed network re-association.In the second solution, for downlink OFDMA HetNet system, the proposed energy efficiency optimization algorithm for radio resource allocation, taking a given data rate requirement into account, associated to QoS, presented fast convergence, which is key in the design of real EE HetNet systems. The algorithm considers not only the radiated power, but also both types of the circuit power. Simulation results can eventually be exploited towards designing optimal energy consumption networks based on QoS-oriented HetNet method, while total power is fixed.As future work it would also be important to take into account the paradigm shift that arise with the emergence of new standards, namely 3GPP Release 15, placing the stepping stones for 5G systems and networks. In this perspective, at a first instance, it is key to go beyond the assumptions made in this work, by considering C-RAN architecture in the addressed challenge for achieving higher EE, which is a prime concern when redesigning existing and future mobile communication systems, namely in sustainable and environmental perspectives." --TDX
