  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (2006)
    This paper presents a psychological contract perspective on the use of open source as an offshore outsourcing strategy – open-sourcing as we term it here. Building on previous research on IS outsourcing, a theoretical ...
  • Agerfalk, Par J.; Fitzgerald, Brian; Holmstrom Olsson, Helena; Ó Conchúir, Eoin (2006)
    This paper presents a psychological contract perspective on the use of open source as an offshore outsourcing strategy – open-sourcing as we term it here. Building on previous research on IS outsourcing, a theoretical ...
  • Shaikh, Maha; Cornford, Tony (2008)
    Open-sourcing is a relatively new term and indicates a less explored theme within the overall perspective of global sourcing. Until recently the term has usually been taken to refer to commercially controlled and created ...
  • Yu, Yijun; Tun, Thein Than; Tedeschi, Alessandra; Nuseibeh, Bashar (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    When software systems are verified against security requirements, formal and informal arguments provide a structure for organizing the software artifacts. Our recent work on the evolution of security-critical software ...
  • Clohessy, Trevor; Acton, Thomas (2013)
    This paper describes research-in-progress that explores the applicability and implications of cloud computing in the creation of business value through open innovation. Both the cloud computing and open innovation paradigms ...
  • Meisel, Hans; Fitzgerald, Richard J. (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    Opioid agonistic and antagonistic peptides which are inactive within the sequence of the precursor milk proteins can be released and thus activated by enzymatic proteolysis, for example during gastrointestinal digestion ...
  • Groba, Christin; Clarke, Siobhán (IEEE Computer Society, 2011)
    Dynamic service composition has emerged as a promising approach to build complex runtime-adaptable applications as it allows for binding service providers only shortly before service execution. However, the dynamic and ...
  • Zhernovaya, Olga (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Light scattering in biological tissues and blood leads to a reduction in imaging spatial resolution, imaging depth and contrast of optical imaging techniques. Refractive index mismatch between erythrocytes and blood plasma ...
  • Chiavaroli, Stefano; Newport, David; Woulfe, Bernie (American Institute of Physics, 2010)
    A barrier in scaling laboratory processes into automated microfluidic devices has been the transfer of lab based assays: where engineering meets biological protocol. One basic requirement is to reliably and accurately ...
  • Woulfe, Peter; Sullivan, F.J.; Kam, Wern; O'Keeffe, Sinéad (Optical Society of America, 2020)
    An optical fiber sensor for monitoring low dose radiation is presented. The sensor, based on radiation sensitive scintillation material, terbium doped gadolinium oxysulphide (Gd2O2S:Tb), is embedded in a cavity of 700μm ...
  • Yan, Yongji; Zhang, Xu; Li, Haopeng; Ma, Yu; Xie, Tianci; Qin, Zhuang; Liu, Shuangqiang; Sun, Weimin; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2018)
    A novel ultraviolet (UV) optical fiber sensor (UVOFS) based on the scintillating material La2O2S:Eu has been designed, tested, and its performance compared with other scintillating materials and other conventional UV ...
  • Fitzpatrick, Colin; Lewis, Elfed; Al-Shamma'a, AI; Lucas, J. (International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2001)
    Low-pressure mercury lamps are commonly used for germicidal applications such as water and wastewater sterilisation. The germicidal effect is due to the emission of light at 254nm, which leads to the destruction of most ...
  • Macchi, Edoardo Gino; Tosi, Daniele; Braschi, Giovanni; Gallati, Mario; Cigada, Alfredo; Busca, Giorgio; Lewis, Elfed (SPIE: The International Society for Optics and Photonics, 2014)
    Radiofrequency thermal ablation (RFTA) induces a high-temperature field in a biological tissue having steep spatial (up to 6 degrees C/mm) and temporal (up to 1 degrees C/s) gradients. Applied in cancer care, RFTA produces ...
  • Sporea, Dan; Sporea, Adelina; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; McCarthy, Denis; Lewis, Elfed (INTECH, 2012)
    By their very nature, optical fibers and, by extension, intrinsic and extrinsic optical fiberbased sensors are promising devices to be used in very different and complex environments considering their characteristics ...
  • Duraibabu, Dinesh Babu; Poeggel, Sven; Omerdić, Edin; Capocci, Romano; Lewis, Elfed; Newe, Thomas; Leen, Gabriel; Toal, Daniel; Dooly, Gerard (MDPI, 2017)
    A miniature sensor for accurate measurement of pressure (depth) with temperature compensation in the ocean environment is described. The sensor is based on an optical fibre Extrinsic Fabry-Perot interferometer (EFPI) ...
  • Newe, Thomas; O'Connell, Eoin; Meere, Damien; Yuan, Hongwei; Leen, Gabriel; O'Keeffe, Sinéad; Lewis, Elfed (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2016)
    Recent advancements in cloud computing technologies in the context of optical and optical fibre based systems are reported. The proliferation of real time and multi-channel based sensor systems represents significant growth ...
  • Poeggel, Sven; Tosi, Daniele; Duraibabu, Dinesh Babu; Leen, Gabriel; McGrath, Deirdre; Lewis, Elfed (MDPI, 2015)
    This article is focused on reviewing the current state-of-the-art of optical fibre pressure sensors for medical applications. Optical fibres have inherent advantages due to their small size, immunity to electromagnetic ...
  • Fabian, Matthias (University of Limerick, 2013)
    This work describes the development of a fibre-optic fluid concentration sensor that is based on evanescent field absorption. In addition, a second optical sensor principle is investigated by means of the development of ...
  • Zawawi, Mohd Anwar (University of Limerick, 2015)
    Health monitoring applications in clinical environment include various areas such as respiration assessment, heart rate monitoring, gait monitoring, spine bending as well as lower and upper limb motion detections. In human ...
  • Clifford, John (University of Limerick, 2011)
    This work describes the investigation and development of an optical fibre gas sensor based on mid infra red absorption spectroscopy. The sensor is suitable for monitoring the gases present in the exhaust emissions of a ...
