Cellulosic hydrogen production with a sequencing bacterial hydrolysis and dark fermentation strategy
Jo-Shu Chang

The reserves of fossil fuels have been decreasing, and the combustion of fossil fuels shows negative impacts on environment. There is necessity to find clean, sustainable energy sources that could substitute fossil fuels. Hydrogen is a clean and renewable energy carrier with a high energy yield, thereby being considered as available alternative energy carrier of future. However, the major problem in utilization of hydrogen gas …

New Efficient Three-party Quantum Key Distribution Protocols
Tzonelih Hwang

Most of the existing quantum key distribution protocols (QKDP) assume that every communicating party is equipped with quantum devices (QD), e.g., the qubit generating machine, or the quantum memory, or the qubit measuring machine. However, in the practical situation, these QDs are expensive and a center may be the only party that affords to own these devices. Though Phoenix et al. …
