  • The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is developing a methodology for calculating the pre-waste-emplacement ground-water travel time at the Yucca Mountain site in Nevada as part of the work it is doing to determine whether the site is suitable for development as a repository and, if it is suitable, to obtain authorization and a license from the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) to construct and operate a geologic repository at the site. The task of developing the methodology is formidable because flow in the unsaturated zone at the site is complex and because the methodology must be consistent with DOE`smore » interpretation of its requirement. This paper describes the DOE approach, which incorporates model development work being conducted by the Sandia National Laboratory and the U.S. Geological Survey, to developing the required methodology.« less
  • Novel Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots are provided. These Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots exhibit excellent temperature sensitivity in both organic solvents and water-based solutions. Methods of preparing the Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots are provided. The Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots may be prepared via a stepwise procedure using air-stable and inexpensive chemicals. The use of air-stable chemicals can significantly reduce the cost of synthesis, chemical storage, and the risk associated with handling flammable chemicals. Methods of temperature sensing using Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots are provided. The stepwise procedure provides the ability to tune the temperature-sensing properties to satisfy specific needs for temperature sensing applications. Water solubility maymore » be achieved by passivating the Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots, allowing the Mn.sup.2+-doped quantum dots to probe the fluctuations of local temperature in biological environments.« less
  • This paper presents two new strategies that can be used to greatly improve the speed of connected component labeling algorithms. To assign a label to a new object, most connected component labeling algorithms use a scanning step that examines some of its neighbors. The first strategy exploits the dependencies among them to reduce the number of neighbors examined. When considering 8-connected components in a 2D image, this can reduce the number of neighbors examined from four to one in many cases. The second strategy uses an array to store the equivalence information among the labels. This replaces the pointer basedmore » rooted trees used to store the same equivalence information. It reduces the memory required and also produces consecutive final labels. Using an array instead of the pointer based rooted trees speeds up the connected component labeling algorithms by a factor of 5 {approx} 100 in our tests on random binary images.« less
