We report electron diffraction of pyrene nanoclusters embedded in superfluid helium droplets. Using a least-squares fitting procedure, we have been able to separate the contribution of helium from those of the pyrene nanoclusters and determine the most likely structures for dimers and trimers. We confirm that pyrene dimers form a parallel double-layer structure with an interlayer distance of 3.5 Šand suggest that pyrene trimers form a sandwich structure but that the molecular planes are not completely parallel. The relative contributions of the dimers and trimers are ∼6:1. This work is an extension of our effort of solving structures of biological molecules using serial single-molecule electron diffraction imaging. The success of electron diffraction from an all-light-atom sample embedded in helium droplets offers reassuring evidence of the feasibility of this approach.

BACKGROUND: Insecticide applications in blueberry production systems play a crucial role in the control of Drosophila suzukii populations. Here, quantitative spray deposition patterns were obtained under replicated field experiments in blueberry during two field seasons with three sprayers, i.e. cannon, electrostatic, and air-blast. Seven insecticides were tested (at 6 hours using a Potter spray tower) to determine the mortality data for adult D. suzukii. Spray deposition and mortality data for adult D. suzukii were used to create model simulations for insect populations. Model simulations included field deposition rates of sprayers and insecticide mortality as factors. Simulations were applied in different combinations with five applications over a 6-week period. RESULTS: Relative deposition rates for the cannon sprayer were elevated in the upper zones of the canopy, whereas for the air-blast sprayer, deposition was greater in the bottom zones. Electrostatic spray deposition was relatively uniform within the six canopy zones. Clear trends in D. suzukii laboratory mortality were found with lowest to highest mortality recorded for phosmet, spinetoram, spinosad, malathion, cyantraniliprole, zeta-cypermethrin, and methomyl respectively. Maximum D. suzukii population impacts, as shown by model outputs, were observed with air-blast sprayers together with zeta-cypermethrin. CONCLUSION: The electrostatic sprayer had the least variable canopy deposition among the three types of spray equipment, and the air-blast sprayer had the highest overall deposition rates. This study provides new hypotheses that can be used for field verification with these spray technologies and insecticides as key factors. © 2019 Society of Chemical Industry.

Computed tomography (CT) is widely used in medical diagnosis and non-destructive detection. Image reconstruction in CT aims to accurately recover pixel values from measured line integrals, i.e., the summed pixel values along straight lines. Provided that the acquired data satisfy the data sufficiency condition as well as other conditions regarding the view angle sampling interval and the severity of transverse data truncation, researchers have discovered many solutions to accurately reconstruct the image. However, if these conditions are violated, accurate image reconstruction from line integrals remains an intellectual challenge. In this paper, a deep learning method with a common network architecture, termed iCT-Net, was developed and trained to accurately reconstruct images for previously solved and unsolved CT reconstruction problems with high quantitative accuracy. Particularly, accurate reconstructions were achieved for the case when the sparse view reconstruction problem (i.e., compressed sensing problem) is entangled with the classical interior tomographic problems.
