Title: Domain wall filters

Abstract

We propose using the extra dimension separating the domain walls carrying lattice quarks of opposite handedness to gradually filter out the ultraviolet fluctuations of the gauge fields that are felt by the fermionic excitations living in the bulk. This generalization of the homogeneous domain wall construction has some theoretical features that seem nontrivial.

  • Regeneration characteristics of Pt, Li, and Pt-Li catalyzed wall-flow monolith (WFM) filters were examined in a reactor mounted in the exhaust from a GM 4.3 L diesel engine. Regeneration rates were measured over a range of exhaust temperatures corresponding to various engine speeds and torques. A fresh 0.2 wt% Pt - 0.2 wt% Li filter regenerated much more rapidly than filters containing 0.2 wt% Pt, 0.4 wt% Pt, or 0.2 wt% Li. The data suggest that both Pt and Li operate as soot oxidation catalysts, with the Li following a redox mechanism proposed by McKee and Chatterji (Carbon 13, 381,more » 1975). Significant oxidation activity was observed with the fresh Pt-Li filter at temperatures as low as 350/sup 0/C, thus demonstrating activity at temperatures nearly within the normal operating range of light-duty GM diesel vehicles. The Pt-Li filter deactivated with time on stream due to reaction of lithium with SO/sub 2/ in the exhaust.« less
  • Two-dimensional Acousto-optic (AO) correlators differ from the frequency plane correlators in that multiplying, shifting, and adding, rather than Fourier transforming are used to obtain the correlations. Thus, many of the available composite filter design techniques are not aimed at designing filters for use in AO correlators since they yield frequency-domain functions. In this paper, a method is introduced for designing filter impulse responses of arbitrary extents for implementation on AO correlators. These filters are designed to yield sharp correlation peaks. Simulation results are included to illustrate the viability of the proposed approach. Also included are some initial results from themore » first successful use of grey-level composite filters on an AO correlator. 12 refs,. 14 figs., 3 tabs.« less
  • A new method has been developed to close the ends of a wall flow filter used for removing particulate matter from diesel engine exhaust. In this method, the ends of the honeycomb structure are capped by deforming and closing the ends of the channel walls between the extrusion and firing stages of production. The method increases the amount of filtration area per filter volume for a given cell geometry compared to the traditional plugging method, since the entire length of the honeycomb channels is used for filtration purposes. In addition, use of the capping method has a beneficial effect onmore » the pressure loss characteristics of a filter with a given filtration area. These benefits are illustrated through experimental results.« less
