    Journal Article
    The first results obtained using a SOI device for microdosimetry applications are presented. Microbeam and broadbeam spectroscopy methods are used for determining minority carrier lifetime and radiation damage constants. A spectroscopy model is presented which includes the majority of effects that impact spectral resolution. Charge collection statistics were found to substantially affect spectral resolution. Lateral diffusion effects significantly complicate charge collection

    YBa2Cu3O7-y with high grain alignment has been successfully fabricated by a modified powder melting process at a temperature of ~930oC which is near the eutectic point of the starting materials Y2BaCuO5, BaCuO2, and CuO. In terms of the levitation force and YBa2Cu3O7-y grain alignment, the best result was shown in a sample having a Y2BaCuO5:BaCuO2:CuO molecular ratio of 1:3:5. In the present work, the Cu-surplus eutectic liquid was completely absorbed by use of a Y2BaCuO5 substrate, by which the final composition was driven to stoichiometric YBa2Cu3O7-y. The results were comparable to those obtained by the conventional melt-texture-growth process. A new invariant point apparently occurred at ~930-940oC owing to an interfacial reaction between YBa2Cu3O7-y matrix and Y2BaCuO5 substrate.

    During magnetoresistance measurement of Bi-2212 single crystals, we found the resistance in the c-axis direction exhibited a huge magnetic enhancement (H perpendicular to the a-b-plane) while the onset transition temperature along the c-axis showed a large depression when the magnetic fields were over a certain value (H > 180 Oe). No such phenomena were observed in small applied magnetic fields (H < 180 Oe) and in a-b-plane magnetoresistance measurements. By changing different probes (eight probes being attached to the sample, each side having four probes) for the measurement of the magnetoresistance along the c-axis with H = 2000 Oe, we found that the resistance along the c-axis in the temperature region T/Tc > 0.90 was only related to the measuring dimensions and Tc onset remained unchanged. Our results provided evidence that both Lorentz-force-independent fluctuation-induced dissipation and Lorentz-force-dependent vortex motion dissipation exist in the mixed state.

    Conference Paper
    Ripple Down Rules (RDR) is a knowledge acquisition method for knowledge based systems (KBS) which facilitates incremental acquisition of knowledge and ensures that the previous performance of the KBS is not degraded by the incremental addition of the new knowledge. This approach is now well established for single classification tasks and more recently has been extended to multiple classification tasks. This paper describes the further extension of the approach to configuration tasks. The test domain for this study is the configuration of ion chromatography methods in analytical chemistry.

    Conference Paper
    The major focus of recent knowledge acquisition research has been on problem-solving methods (PSM). This paper present results where a PSM developed for classification has been extended to handle a configuration or parametric design task, designing ion chromatography methods in analytical chemistry. Surprisingly good results have been obtained seemingly because any knowledge that has been added to the knowledge base, has been added precisely to overcome any limitations of the PSM. These results suggest a trade-off between domain knowledge and the power of the PSM and that greater use of domain knowledge would facilitate re-use by allowing PSMs to be used for a broader range of tasks.
