In Thailand, the extra high voltage 500 kV and 50 Hz overhead transmission lines have been installed by Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) both of single-circuit and double-circuit due to the rapid increasing of electrical power demands. The electromagnetic field will be generated and propagated to the environment in the area around overhead transmission lines. The intensity...

Cosmic rays play an important role in our daily lives and can be used in various fields of educational research, especially in physics and astrophysics. However, the detection of cosmic rays is affected by many factors, and atmospheric water vapour pressure was recently suspected to be an important factor. Princess Sirindhorn Neutron Monitor (PSNM) is a cosmic ray detector in Chiangmai, and...

The present project has been extended from our previous lab-scale work of sex reversal for monosex-male Nile tilapia by using a transient pulse-electric field induction toward commercial products. All male sex reversal rate from 89.25% to 92.5% is achieved. Our newly equipment (to be patented) of electrical sex reversal was developed for large-scale of more than 10,000 eggs for each induction....

SnO$_2$ is an oxide semiconductor with wide band gap, good transparency, and high thermal and chemical resistances. As-grown SnO$_2$ usually exhibits $\textit{n}$-type conductivity with high carrier concentrations, which is an obstacle to make it $\textit{p}$-type. Consequently, applications of SnO$_2$ for optoelectronics are limited. Group-III elements, such as Al, Ga, and In, are...

Living yeast cells in the brewery industry are active cells. They have different responses to AC electric field if they possess different dielectric properties. Electrical parameters which are used to determine health of yeast cells are the conductivities of the cytoplasm ($\sigma_c$), the cell membrane ($\sigma_m$), dielectric constant of the membrane ($\varepsilon_m$) and the cytoplasm...

Detailed infrared (IR) absorption spectroscopy of O$_2$-related defects in zincblend-CdTe and wurtzite-CdSe were reported by Lavrov *et al* [Phys. Rev. B **84**, 233201 (2011), AIP conf. Proc. **1583**, 169 (2014)]. They clearly showed based on their experimental work that the IR absorption bands at 1096.8 and 1108.4 cm$^{-1}$ in CdTe samples are associated with the vibrational modes of...

The present study proposes another alternative approach to model the geometry of Nile tilapia egg for evaluation of the induced transmembrane potential. The actual shape of tilapia egg is an asymmetrical prolate spheroid with a short prolate spheroid bottom and a more elongate prolate spheroid at the top with a common equator rather than a symmetrical prolate spheroid. Unfortunately, the...

A Higher operating temperature increases a risk of mainboard in computer malfunction. In this work, the heat transfer and thermal distribution on a mainboard were investigated based on finite element analysis. We proposed boundary conditions and parameters at least to be defined. The results of simulation were compared with the actual results measured by the thermal imager. The comparison...

The multiple-parallel plate electrode equipped with a sequential signal generator (SSG) (to be patented) has been developed for on-site yeast separations in the brewery industry. Dead and living yeast cells were separated by using non-uniform sinusoidal electric fields. The SSG was developed from our previous lab-scale version to produce a sinusoidal phase to generate out-of-phase electric...

The present study employs exponential decay pulse-electric field inductions to enhance sex reversal of Nile tilapia eggs in suspensions for monosex-male. The novel technique was the pilot study to initiate the usage of natural androgen hormone of $\textit{Butea superba}$ (Red Kwao Krua) extract instead of our previous electroporation medium of 17$\alpha$ - methyltestosterone (MT). The eggs of...

The electronic band structure of graphene was calculated using the full-potential linearized muffin-tin orbital (FP-LMTO) method. Its resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS) spectra at various x-ray excitation energies were calculated based on Kramers-Heisenberg equation. It is found that the RIXS spectra show distinct dispersive features and are interpreted as being due to the...
