  • Walsh, Conor; Moles, Richard; O'Regan, Bernadette (MDPI, 2010)
    The need for global comparability has led to the recent standardization of ecological footprint methods. The use of global averages and necessary methodological assumptions has questioned the ability of the ecological ...
  • Gill, Edric; Arshak, Arousian; Arshak, Khalil; Korostynska, Olga (MDPI, 2007)
    This paper reports on the results from the investigation into the pH sensitivity of novel PANI/PVB/PS3 composite films. The conductimetric sensing mode was chosen as it is one of the most promising alternatives to the ...
  • Korostynska, Olga; Arshak, Khalil; Gill, Edric; Arshak, Arousian (MDPI, 2007)
    This paper reviews current state-of-the-art methods of measuring pH levels that are based on polymer materials. These include polymer-coated fibre optic sensors, devices with electrodes modified with pH-sensitive polymers, ...
  • Zawawi, Mohd Anwar; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2013)
    This paper presents the implementation of power fluctuation compensation for an intensity-based optical fibre bending sensor aimed at monitoring human spine bending in a clinical environment. To compensate for the light ...
  • Sporea, Dan; Mihai, Laura; Vâţă, Ion; McCarthy, Denis; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2014)
    The paper presents a set of tests carried out in order to evaluate the design characteristics and the operating performance of a set of six X-ray extrinsic optical fiber sensors. The extrinsic sensor we developed is intended ...
  • Davis, Laura M. (University of Limerick, 2014)
    With cardiovascular pathologies continuing to prevail, effective arterial replacements for the minimally invasive treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) through endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) are still an ...
  • Dowling, Catríona M; Herranz Ors, Carmen; Kiely, Patrick A (Portland Press, 2014)
    Increasing our knowledge of the mechanisms regulating cell proliferation, migration and invasion are central to understanding tumour progression and metastasis. The local tumour microenvironment contributes to the ...

    Introduction: A well-functioning arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the best modality for vascular access in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring haemodialysis (HD). However, AVFs' main disadvantage is the ...
  • Ron, Donit; Adams, David R; Baillie, George S; Long, Aideen; O'Connor, Rosemary; Kiely, Patrick A (BioMed Central, 2013)
    This perspective summarises the first and long overdue RACK1 meeting held at the University of Limerick, Ireland, May 2013, in which RACK1's role in the immune system, the heart and the brain were discussed and its ...
  • Karpinska, Jolanta; Kuhs, Manuel; Rasmuson, Åke C; Erxleben, Andrea; McArdle, Patrick (International Union of Crystallography, 2012)
    The title compound, C17H19NO4, which is a non-toxic insect growth regulator with the common name fenoxycarb, contains two independent and conformationally different molecules in the asymmetric unit. Although the inter-ring ...
  • Cawley, Oisín; Wang, Xiaofeng; Richardson, Ita (Springer, 2013)
    As the Software Engineering landscape continues to evolve and new paradigms are introduced, there can be a tendency for both industry and academia to enthusiastically embrace new approaches and march forward under whatever ...
  • Bezuidenhout, Michael; Liu, Pai; Singh, Shalini; Kiely, Maeve; Ryan, Kevin M.; Kiely, Patrick A (Public Library of Science, 2014)
    Group IV Nanowires have strong potential for several biomedical applications. However, to date their use remains limited because many are synthesised using heavy metal seeds and functionalised using organic ligands to make ...
  • Filip, David; McCance, Shaun; Lewis, Dave; Lieske, Christian; Lommel, Arle; Kosek, Jirka; Sasaki, Felix; Savourel, Yves (W3C, 2013)
    The technology described in this document Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 enhances the foundation to integrate automated processing of human language into core Web technologies. ITS 2.0 bears many commonalities ...
  • Fox, Aaron (University of Limerick, 2013)
    Biochar amended soils have demonstrated various agronomic benefits, principally a plant growth promotion effect. The char’s impact, however, on macronutrient bio-availability and the microorganisms involved in their ...
  • Egan, Eimear (University of Limerick, 2014)
    My Thesis investigation involves developing a process by which one could derive meaning in the threshold space of an edge condition to which the border is not explicit. In investigating the social and ideological aspects ...
  • Lasc, Ioana (University of Limerick, 2011)
    This research addresses synchronisation issues in security protocols for wireless communications. A new class of attacks, termed Suppress-and-Desynchronise (SD) attacks, is introduced. This attack uses the vulnerabilities ...
  • O'Keeffe, Lisa (University of Limerick, 2011)
    This research study is aimed at improving the quality of the mathematics textbooks available for junior cycle students. It is widely agreed that there is room for improvement with regard to the quality of mathematics at ...
  • O'Callaghan, Clare (University of Limerick, 2013)
    The aim of this thesis is cohesively question how we build. As a constructed thought it pauses at the moment before the raw matter of the Earth is transformed into sociological object and attempts to extrapolate a broader ...
