1. Short communication: Development of an equation for estimating methane emissions of dairy cows from milk Fourier transform mid-infrared spectra by using reference data obtained exclusively from respiration chambers ﻿

(2018)
Journal of Dairy Science
Evaluation and mitigation of enteric methane (CH4) emissions from ruminant livestock, in particular from dairy cows, have acquired global importance for sustainable, climate-smart cattle production. Based on CH4 reference measurements obtained with the SF6 tracer technique to determine ruminal CH4 production, a current equation permits evaluation of individual daily CH4 emissions of dairy cows based on milk Fourier transform mid-infrared ...

3. Asynchronous Corner Detection and Tracking for Event Cameras in Real-Time ﻿

(2018)
IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters
The recent emergence of bioinspired event cameras has opened up exciting new possibilities in high-frequency tracking, bringing robustness to common problems in traditional vision, such as lighting changes and motion blur. In order to leverage these attractive attributes of the event cameras, research has been focusing on understanding how to process their unusual output: an asynchronous stream of events. With the majority of existing ...

4. Trajectory Optimization with Implicit Hard Contacts ﻿

(2018)
IEEE Robotics and Automation Letters
We present a contact invariant trajectory optimization formulation to synthesize motions for legged robotic systems. The method is capable of finding optimal trajectories subject to whole body dynamics with hard contacts. Contact switches are determined automatically. We make use of concepts from bilevel optimization to find gradients of the system dynamics including the constraint forces and subsequently solve the optimal control problem ...

5. How to squat? Effects of various stance widths, foot placement angles and level of experience on knee, hip and trunk motion and loading ﻿

(2018)
BMC Sports Science, Medicine and Rehabilitation
Background: Squatting is a core exercise for many purposes. The tissue loading during squatting is crucial for positive adaptation and to avoid injury. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of narrow, hip and wide stance widths, foot position angles (0°, 21°, and 42°), strength exercise experience, and barbell load (0 and 50% body weight, experts only) during squatting. Methods: Novice (N = 21) and experienced (N = 21) squatters ...

6. Single-Step Fabrication of Polymer Nanocomposite Films ﻿

(2018)
Materials
Polymer nanocomposites are employed in (micro)electronic, biomedical, structural and optical applications. Their fabrication is challenging due to nanoparticle (filler) agglomeration and settling, increased viscosity of blended solutions and multiple tedious processing steps, just to name a few. Often this leads to an upper limit for filler content, requirements for filler–polymer interfacial chemistry and expensive manufacturing. As a ...

9. Dysfunctional Autism Risk Genes Cause Circuit-Specific Connectivity Deficits With Distinct Developmental Trajectories ﻿

(2018)
Cerebral Cortex
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a set of complex neurodevelopmental disorders for which there is currently no targeted therapeutic approach. It is thought that alterations of genes regulating migration and synapse formation during development affect neural circuit formation and result in aberrant connectivity within distinct circuits that underlie abnormal behaviors. However, it is unknown whether deviant developmental trajectories ...

10. Quantum-enhanced magnetometry by phase estimation algorithms with a single artificial atom ﻿

(2018)
npj Quantum Information
Phase estimation algorithms are key protocols in quantum information processing. Besides applications in quantum computing, they can also be employed in metrology as they allow for fast extraction of information stored in the quantum state of a system. Here, we implement two suitably modified phase estimation procedures, the Kitaev and the semiclassical Fourier-transform algorithms, using an artificial atom realized with a superconducting ...

11. Learning hard quantum distributions with variational autoencoders ﻿

(2018)
npj Quantum Information
The exact description of many-body quantum systems represents one of the major challenges in modern physics, because it requires an amount of computational resources that scales exponentially with the size of the system. Simulating the evolution of a state, or even storing its description, rapidly becomes intractable for exact classical algorithms. Recently, machine learning techniques, in the form of restricted Boltzmann machines, have ...

12. A local and scalable lattice renormalization method for ballistic quantum computation ﻿

(2018)
npj Quantum Information
A recent proposal has shown that it is possible to perform linear-optics quantum computation using a ballistic generation of the lattice. Yet, due to the probabilistic generation of its cluster state, it is not possible to use the fault-tolerant Raussendorf lattice, which requires a lower failure rate during the entanglement-generation process. Previous work in this area showed proof-of-principle linear-optics quantum computation, while ...

13. Performance of the CMS muon detector and muon reconstruction with proton-proton collisions at s=13 TeV ﻿

(2018)
Journal of Instrumentation
The CMS muon detector system, muon reconstruction software, and high-level trigger underwent significant changes in 2013–2014 in preparation for running at higher LHC collision energy and instantaneous luminosity. The performance of the modified system is studied using proton-proton collision data at center-of-mass energy √s=13 TeV, collected at the LHC in 2015 and 2016. The measured performance parameters, including spatial resolution, ...
