    Preparation of Porous Polysulfone Microspheres and Their Application in Removal of Oil from Water

    No full text
    The monodisperse porous polysulfone (PSF) microspheres with hollow core/porous shell structure were prepared by a water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) emulsion solvent evaporation method. The morphology of PSF is investigated by using three different surfactants such as oleic acid, polyvinylpyrrolidone and polyoxyethylen(20)-sorbitanmonooleat. The prepared microspheres are developed as sorbents to remove oil from water due to their highly hydrophobic and superoleophilic properties. The PSF microspheres synthesized in the presence of oleic acid exhibit the best separation efficiency, which is 44.8 times higher than that of the pristine PSF powder. The microspheres with appropriate size, unsinkable properties, and excellent reproducibility can be quickly distributed and collected in seconds on the surface of water. The pore structure of PSF microspheres and interaction between oil and PSF are proposed to explain the high efficiency

    NTIRE 2019 Challenge on Video Super-Resolution: Methods and Results

    No full text
    This paper reviews the first NTIRE challenge on video super-resolution (restoration of rich details in low-resolution video frames) with focus on proposed solutions and results. A new REalistic and Diverse Scenes dataset (REDS) was employed. The challenge was divided into 2 tracks. Track 1 employed standard bicubic downscaling setup while Track 2 had realistic dynamic motion blurs. Each competition had 124 and 104 registered participants. There were total 14 teams in the final testing phase. They gauge the state-of-the-art in video super-resolution

    Search for scalar leptoquarks produced in lepton-quark collisions and coupled to ŌĄ\tau leptons

    No full text
    International audienceThe first search for scalar leptoquarks produced in lepton-quark collisions and coupled to ŌĄ\tau leptons is presented. It is based on a set of proton-proton collision data recorded with the CMS detector at the LHC at a center-of-mass energy of 13 TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 138 fb‚ąí1^{-1}. The reconstructed final state consists of a jet, significant missing transverse momentum, and a ŌĄ\tau lepton reconstructed through its hadronic or leptonic decays. Limits are set on the product of the leptoquark production cross section and branching fraction and interpreted as exclusions in the plane of the leptoquark mass and the leptoquark-ŌĄ\tau-quark coupling strength
