  • Fleming, Paul (University of Limerick, 2011)
    All biological conditions, whether pathological or a cellular response to extra cellular signals, are reflected in changes in gene expression. Gene expression profiling is therefore a valuable tool in many areas, including ...
  • Liu, Pia; Singh, Shalini; Guo, Yina; Wang, Jian-Jun; Xu, Hongxing; Silien, Christophe; Liu, Ning; Ryan, Kevin M. (2017)
    Herein we report the formation of multi-layered arrays of vertically aligned and close packed semiconductor nanorods in perfect registry at a substrate using electric field assisted assembly. The collective properties of ...
  • Osman, Ahmed I; Abu-Dahrieh, Jehad K; McLaren, Mathew; Laffir, Fathima R.; Nockemann, Peter; Rooney, David (Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
    A novel green preparation route to prepare nano-mesoporous γ-Al2O3 from AlCl3.6H2O derived from aluminum foil waste and designated as ACFL550 is demonstrated, which showed higher surface area, larger pore volume, stronger ...
  • Zhao, Bin; Ryan, Kevin M.; O'Reilly, Emmet; McCarthy, Conor (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
    This work reported an improved approach to the synthesis of iron oxide nanostructures using iron(III) chloride as the precursor and hexamethylenetetramine (HMTA) as the key auxiliary. A range of iron oxide (alkoxide) ...
  • Starnini, Michele; Gleeson, James P.; Boguna, Marián (American Physical Society, 2017)
    A general formalism is introduced to allow the steady state of non-Markovian processes on networks to be reduced to equivalent Markovian processes on the same substrates. The example of an epidemic spreading process is ...
  • Xiao, Xinxin; Ó Conghaile, Peter; Leech, Dónal; Roland, Ludwig; Magner, Edmond (Elsevier, 2017)
    Enzymatic biofuel cells can generate electricity directly from the chemical energy of biofuels in physiological fluids, but their power density is significantly limited by the performance of the cathode which is based on ...
  • Cregan, Vincent; Lee, William T.; Clune, Louise (SpringerOpen, 2017)
    A soft sensor for measuring product quality in the Bayer process has been developed. The soft sensor uses a combination of historical process data recorded from online sensors and laboratory measurements to predict a key ...
  • O'Leary, Fiachra (University of Limerick, 2011)
    Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is widespread among the human population. HSV infection can have subtle symptoms and often go undiagnosed. There are two types of HSV infections. HSV type 1 (HSV-1) is associated with orofacial ...
  • Hurd, Thomas R; Gleeson, James P.; Melnik, Sergey (Public Library of Science, 2017)
    We introduce a probabilistic framework that represents stylized banking networks with the aim of predicting the size of contagion events. Most previous work on random financial networks assumes independent connections ...
  • Cogoni, Giuseppi; de Souza, B.P; Frawley, Patrick J (Elsevier, 2015)
    Plug Flow Crystallizers (PFCs) are one of the most widely employed forms of continuous crystallizers. PFCs are usually selected for processes with fast kinetics and short residence times. One key limitation of PFCs is that ...
  • Nikolić, Dragan D; Frawley, Patrick J (Elsevier, 2016)
    Crystallization phenomena in stirred reactors are influenced by local hydrodynamic conditions and these must be taken into account for successful process scale-up and optimization. This article is the first of two presenting ...
  • O'Driscoll, Áine (University of Limerick, 2016)
    The production of energy and chemicals from renewable resources has gained significant attention as the global effort and legislated requirements to transition from fossil fuels to biofuels intensifies. The synthesis of ...
  • Faqeeh, Ali (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Many of the systems we observe in nature, in societies, or in infrastructures are in the form of a network of interacting units. This underlying network structure shapes the behavior of such systems and is an indispensable ...
  • Hurd, Thomas R; Cellai, Davide; Melnik, Sergey; Shao, Quentin, H (2016)
    The scope of financial systemic risk research encompasses a wide range of interbank channels and effects, including asset correlation shocks, default contagion, illiquidity contagion, and asset fire sales. This paper ...
  • Faqeeh, Ali; Melnik, Sergey; Colomer-deSimón, Pol; Gleeson, James P. (American Physical Society, 2016)
    It is commonly assumed in percolation theories that at most one percolating cluster can exist in a network. We show that several coexisting percolating clusters (CPCs) can emerge in networks due to limited mixing, i.e., a ...
  • Baxter, Gareth J; Cellai, Davide; Dorogovtsev, Sergey N; Mendes, José F.F (American Chemical Society, 2016)
    In multiplex networks, cycles cannot be characterized only by their length, as edges may occur in different layers in different combinations. We define a classification of cycles by the number of edges in each layer and ...
  • Baxter, Gareth J; Dorogovtsev, Sergey N; Mendes, José F.F; Cellai, Davide (Americann Physical Society, 2014)
    Bootstrap percolation is a simple but nontrivial model. It has applications in many areas of science and has been explored on random networks for several decades. In single-layer (simplex) networks, it has been recently ...
  • Cellai, Davide; Bianconi, Ginestra (American Physical Society, 2016)
    In multiplex networks with a large number of layers, the nodes can have different activities, indicating the total number of layers in which the nodes are present. Here we model multiplex networks with heterogeneous activity ...
  • Hayes, Christopher J; Dowling, Catríona M; Dwane, Susan; McCumiskey, Mary E; Tormey, Shona M; Merrigan, Anne; Coffey, John C; Kiely, Patrick A; Dalton, Tara M (AIP Publishing, 2016)
    In cancer, biomarkers have many potential applications including generation of a differential diagnosis, prediction of response to treatment, and monitoring disease progression. Many molecular biomarkers have been put ...
  • Conroy, Brian; Paddea, Sanjooram; Kelleher, Joe; Tanner, D.A (Taylor and Francis, 2017)
    ASTM F75 femoral knee implant components distort during manufacture due to residual stress re-distribution or inducement. X-ray diffraction, neutron diffraction, centre-hole drilling and the contour method residual stress ...
