Supporting data for: Optimal design of a toroidal field magnet system and cost of electricity implications for a tokamak using high temperature superconductorsT. S. Lee, I. Jenkins, Elizabeth Surrey & Damian Hampshire
The potential for reducing the Cost of Electricity (CoE) by using High Temperature Superconductors (HTS) in the Toroidal Field (TF) coils of a fusion tokamak power plant has been investigated using a new HTS module in the PROCESS systems code. We report the CoE and the design of HTS tokamaks that have been optimized by minimising the major radius of the plasma. Potential future improvements in both the superconducting properties and the structural materials for...
In this paper, we use a finite difference time domain solver to simulate the near field optical properties of self-assembled microsphere arrays when exposed to an incoherent light source. Such arrays are typically used for microsphere lithography where each sphere acts as a ball lens, focusing ultraviolet light into an underlying photoresist layer. It is well known that arrays of circular features can be patterned using this technique. However, here, our simulations show that additional...
In this work we explore different Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) architectures and their variants for non-temporal binary fire detection and localization in video or still imagery. We consider the performance of experimentally defined, reduced complexity deep CNN architectures for this task and evaluate the effects of different optimization and normalization techniques applied to different CNN architectures (spanning the Inception, ResNet and EfficientNet architectural concepts). Contrary to contemporary trends in the field, our work illustrates a...

Abstract from article: Although considerable progress has been made in simulating the dynamics of multiple coupled nuclear spins, predicting the evolution of nuclear magnetisation in the presence of radio-frequency decoupling remains challenging. We use exact numerical simulations of the spin dynamics under simultaneous magic-angle spinning and RF decoupling to determine the extent to which numerical simulations can be used to predict the experimental performance of heteronuclear decoupling for the CW, TPPM and XiX sequences, using...

Active frequency stabilization of a laser to an atomic or molecular resonance underpins many modern-day AMO physics experiments. With a flat background and high signal-to-noise ratio, modulation transfer spectroscopy (MTS) offers an accurate and stable method for laser locking. Despite its benefits, however, the four-wave mixing process that is inherent to the MTS technique entails that the strongest modulation transfer signals are only observed for closed transitions, excluding MTS from numerous applications. Here, we report...

Supporting data for: Superconducting and mechanical properties of low-temperature solders for jointsYeekin Tsui, Ra'ad Mahmoud, Elizabeth Surrey & Damian Hampshire
All large superconducting applications require electrical connections between superconductors or between superconductors and other metallic parts of the systems. Such connections are essential components for these applications and are usually made by melting the solder (or soft soldering). In general, the melting point, electrical resistivity, mechanical and wetting properties and toxicity are all important criteria when choosing the best solder for a specific application. If the solder itself is superconducting under the operating conditions of...
Examining charge transport networks in organic bulk heterojunction photovoltaic diodes using 1/f noise spectroscopy (data files)K. Kaku, A.T. Williams, B. Mendis & C. Groves
This study investigates the application of 1/f noise spectroscopy to determine the morphology of organic photovoltaic diodes. Our experiments indicate that 1/f noise spectroscopy can provide detailed information about charge transport networks in such complex, bulk heterojunction devices, even when bipolar charge transport is present. This indicates that 1/f noise spectroscopy could be used to investigate morphology in a wide range blended organic electronic devices. Methodologies and descriptions of the data are described in full...

The incorporation of functionalised carbon nanodots within a novel low molecular weight salt hydrogel derived from 5-aminosalycilic acid is reported. The carbon dots result in markedly enhanced gelation properties, while inclusion within the hydrophobic gel results in a dramatic fluorescence enhancement for the carbon nanomaterials. The resulting hybrid CD Gels exhibit a useful sensor response for heavy metal ions, particularly Pb2+.
