Migration Grid #26, Stanton Hunter
The STEAM Journal
This work is inspired by invisible sky grids formed by Ultra Violet (UV) light researchers discovered that guide Monarch butterflies on their migration from the mid-western United States to the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico. I use terrestrial material, clay, to make something celestial. Earth, associated with mass and permanence, is translated into these shifting, ephemeral, and ethereal sky-forms. The work encompasses void more than object and the complex shadows they cast are immaterial. Together, the objects and shadows point to what can’t be seen, at least by the human eye.

Calcium Phosphate-Based Resorbable Biomaterials For Bone Regeneration, Daniel O. Costa
University of Western Ontario - Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Bone defects are a prevalent problem in orthopedics and dentistry. Calcium phosphate-based coatings and nanocomposites offer unique solutions towards producing scaffolds with suitable physical, mechanical and biological properties for bone regeneration.
We developed a novel method to synthesize hydroxyapatite (HA) particles with high aspect ratio using sol-gel chemistry and hydrothermal treatment. We obtained tunable pure-phase carbonated-HA in the form of micro/nanorods and nanowires (diameters 25-800 nm). To mimic the structure of bone, HA nanowires were homogenously mixed within poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) to produce nanocomposites with improved mechanical properties as determined by uniaxial tensile testing.

Electrophoretic Deposition Of Organic - Inorganic Nanocomposites, Yanchao Sun McMaster University
Electrophoretic Deposition Of Organic - Inorganic Nanocomposites, Yanchao Sun
Open Access Dissertations and Theses
Electrochemical deposition methods have been developed for the fabrication of organic － inorganic nanocomposite coatings. The methods are based on electrophoretic deposition of ceramic nanoparticles and polymers.
EPD method has been developed for the deposition of nanostructured TiO2 films using new dispersing agents. The stabilization and charging of the nanoparticles in suspensions was achieved using these organic molecules, which belong to catecholate and salicylate families. Anodic deposition was achieved using caffeic acid, 2,3－dihydroxybenzoic acid, 2,6－dihydroxybenzoic acid and 5－sulfosalicylic acid. Cathodic deposition was performed using 2,4 dihydroxycinnamic acid, p－coumaric acid and trans cinnamic acid ...
