Improving lighting performance of WLEDs, especially the color quality, has always been a priority in lighting researches. Recently, the conventional remote phosphor configuration is unable to fulfill the needs of the modern lighting market, particularly the high color expression demand has inspired the search for a novel manufacturing procedure. In this study, based on the results from previous studies, the struggles in enhancing lighting performances are pointed out, and a solution, the dual-layer remote phosphor, is proposed from our conducted experiments. Through experiments with NaYF4:Er3+;Yb3+ and Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ phosphors, the dual-layer phosphor is proven to be effective in improving lighting properties such as color rendering index (CRI) and color quality scale (CQS). The research method involves structuring and experimenting with the phosphor configuration of the yellow phosphor YAG:Ce3+ layer with a green NaYF4:Er3+;Yb3+ or a red Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ phosphor layer whose phosphor concentrations are varied. The results show that the red phosphor Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ particles benefit the CRI and CQS because the values of CRI and CQS increase with red phosphor Mg2TiO4:Mn4+ concentration. On the other hand, the green phosphor NaYF4:Er3+;Yb3+ is inferior in improving CRI and CQS but exhibits better luminous flux. Despite being useful in enhancing lighting performance, the phosphor concentration must be kept below a certain level, which will be mentioned in the article, to prevent damages. These results are verified using Mie scattering theory and Lambert-Beer's law and can be utilized in producing WLEDs with high lighting quality.

This paper compares the performance of the gradient and Newton-Raphson (N-R) method to estimate parameters in some zero-inflated (ZI) regression models such as the zero-inflated Poisson (ZIP) model, zero-inflated Bell (ZIBell) model, zero-inflated binomial (ZIB) model and zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) model. In the present work, firstly, we briefly present the approach of the gradient and N-R method. We then introduce the origin, formulas and applications of the ZI models. Finally, we compare the performance of two investigated approaches for these models through the simulation studies with numerous sample sizes and several missing rates. A real data set is investigated in this study. Specifically, we compare the results and the execution time of the R code for two methods. Moreover, we provide some important notes on these two approaches and some scalable research directions for future work.

The loss power of distribution systems is increasingly more and more due to the increase of demand load from industrial zones and households as well as extended grids. For solving the problem, a strategy that can be regarded as a simple and effective way to allocate capacitor banks to the distribution systems. In the paper, a marine predator optimization algorithm (MPOA) is applied for determining the best size of capacitors and the most advantageous buses for the capacitors. The effectiveness of MPOA is scrutinized on two distribution systems considering the number of different integrated capacitors. The solutions found from MPOA are coped with those of recently available algorithms. Through the comparisons with previous studies, a conclusion is drawn that MPOA is a trustworthy method.

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, it protects them from the external environment. However, the number of new skin cancer cases has been going up in the last few years. Fortunately diagnosing skin cancer in earlier stages could increase the probability of treating cancer. Due to machine learning (ML) and deep learning(DL) has achieved great success in different fields and has shown an outstanding performance in computer vision applications, lots of ML Applications is concerned in this domain. The main goal of this study is to find a computer-aided diagnosis system that can be powerful in early detection, which saves time and money. A simple pipeline is used to train different types of convolutional neural networks (CNNs), choosing the best four networks and ensemble them together without any prior segmentation or repainting. By using the HAM10000 dataset for training and testing, a high-accurate model is achieved which can classify seven kinds of skin lesions very precisely.

Feature extraction and emotional classification are significant roles in speech emotion recognition. It is hard to extract and select the optimal features, researchers can not be sure what the features should be. With deep learning approaches, features could be extracted by using hierarchical abstraction layers, but it requires high computational resources and a large number of data. In this article, we choose static, differential, and acceleration coefficients of log Mel-spectrogram as inputs for the deep learning model. To avoid performance degradation, we also add a skip connection with dilated convolution network integration. All representatives are fed into a self-attention mechanism with bidirectional recurrent neural networks to learn long term global features and exploit context for each time step. Finally, we investigate contrastive center loss with softmax loss as loss function to improve the accuracy of emotion recognition. For validating robustness and effectiveness, we tested the proposed method on the Emo-DB and ERC2019 datasets. Experimental results show that the performance of the proposed method is strongly comparable with the existing state-of-the-art methods on the Emo-DB and ERC2019 with 88% and 67%, respectively.

Modal kinetic energy (MKE) feature has been mostly employed for optimal sensor layout strategies; nevertheless, little attention is paid to use the feature to the field of structural damage detection. The article presents the extensive applicability of MKE change ratio (MKECR), a good damage sensitive parameter, to damage localization and quantification of laminated composite beams. The formulation of the parameter is based on the closed-form of element MKE sensitivity. The performance of the offered damage detection method is numerically verified by a clamped-clamped composite beam and a two-span continuous composite beam with different hypothetical damage scenarios. The influence of incomplete mode shapes, various noise levels as well as damage magnitudes on damage prediction results are also investigated. The obtained results from these numerical examples indicate that the offered method reliably localize the actually damaged elements and approximately estimate their severities, even under incomplete measurements at a high noise level.

Tax consulting service is one of various professional consulting services and is interested to study by many researchers. Nevertheless, this issue has not been interested to research in Vietnam. This paper performs confirmatory factors analysis (CFA) and structural equation modeling (SEM) to identify the factors influencing the intentions of using tax consulting services of firms in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. Specifically, this paper finds that the intentions depend on the “attitude toward the behavior” and “replacement”. In addition, through Chi-square test, it can be proven that the intentions also depend on type of firms and whether they have ever used tax consulting service or not. Based on the obtained results, the discussion and recommendation are also proposed.

Comparing graph databases with traditional,e.g., relational databases, some important database features are often missing there. Particularly, a graph database schema including integrity constraints is mostly not explicitly defined, also a conceptual modelling is not used. It is hard to check a consistency of the graph database, because almost no integrity constraints are defined or only their very simple representatives can be specified. In the paper, we discuss these issues and present current possibilities and challenges in graph database modelling. We focus also on integrity constraints modelling and propose functional dependencies between entity types, which reminds modelling functional dependencies known from relational databases. We show a number of examples of often cited GDBMSs and their approach to database schemas and ICs specification. Also a conceptual level of a graph database design is considered. We propose a sufficient conceptual model based on a binary variant of the ER model and show its relationship to a graph database model, i.e. a mapping conceptual schemas to database schemas. An alternative based on the conceptual functions called attributes is presented.

III-nitride nanowire-based light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been intensively studied as promising candidates for future lighting technologies. Compared to conventional GaN-based planar LEDs, III-nitride nanowire LEDs exhibit numerous advantages including greatly reduced dislocation densities, polarization fields, and quantum-conned Stark effect due to the effective lateral stress relaxation, promising high-efficiency full-color LEDs. Beside these advantages, however, several issues have been identified as the limiting factors for further enhancing the nanowire LED quantum efficiency and light output power. Some of the most probable causes have been identified as due to the lack of carrier confinement in the active region, non-uniform carrier distribution, electron overflow, and the nonradiative recombination along the nanowire lateral surfaces. Moreover, the presence of large surface states and defects contribute significantly to the carrier loss in nanowire LEDs. Consequently, reported nanowire LEDs show relatively low output power. Recently, III-nitride core-shell nanowire LED structures have been reported as the most efficient nanowire white LEDs with a record-high output power which is more than 500 times stronger than that of nanowire white LEDs without using core-shell structure. In this context, we will review the current status, challenges, and approaches for the high-performance IIInitride nanowire LEDs. More specifically, we will describe the current methods for the fabrication of nanowire structures including top-down and bottom-up approaches, followed by characteristics of III-nitride nanowire LEDs. We will then discuss the carrier dynamics and loss mechanism in nanowire LEDs. The typical designs for the enhanced performance of III-nitride nanowire LEDs will be presented next. The color-tunable nanowire LEDs with emission wavelengths in the visible spectrum and phosphor-free nanowire white LEDs will be finally discussed.

In this paper, hidden bifurcation routes to multiscroll chaotic attractors generated by saturated function series are explored. The method to nd such hidden bifurcation routes (HBR) depending upon two parameters is similar to the method introduced by Menacer, et al. (2016) for Chua multiscroll attractors. These HBR are characterized by the maximal range extension (MARE) of their attractors and coding the appearance order of the scrolls under the control of the two parameters. Moreover, these HDR have interesting symmetries with respect to the two parameters. The novelty that this article introduces, is firstly the paradigm of MARE and the formula giving their approximate value depending upon parameters p and q, which is linked to the size of the scrolls; secondly the coding of the HBR which is dened for the first time including the basic cell; and thirdly unearthing the symmetries of these routes, allowing to obtain their coding without any numerical computation.

Enhancement of the color uniformity, the lumen output of the multi-chip white LED lamps (MCW-LEDs) at high color correlated temperature is a big challenge for researchers. However, an innovative LED lamp designed with a phosphor compounding, which combines (La,Ce,Tb) PO4:Ce:Tb (LaTb) green phosphor with YAG: CE yellow phosphor, is proposed as an optimal solution to this requirement. Index, using LaTb green phosphor into MCWLEDs could bring a superior optical performance for MCW-LEDs. It is found that the lumen output of this new MCW-LED at a high color temperature of 8500 K significantly improves up to 1600 lm compared to MCW-LEDs without LaTb phosphor. The simulation results demonstrated that the CCT deviation sharply decreases from 9000 to 1000 at the LaTb concentration range from 0 to 1.8 %, while the Color Rendering Index ability (CRI) and the Color Quality Scale (CQS) slightly decrease. To obtain the highest lumen output and the best color uniformity, the particle size range within 6 - 8 µm should be suggested.
