Enhanced Adhesion Of Superhydrophobic Zno Surface, liqiu zheng Dr., Chan Kwaichow B. 2016 Albany State University

Enhanced Adhesion Of Superhydrophobic Zno Surface, Liqiu Zheng Dr., Chan Kwaichow B.

Georgia Journal of Science

The superhydrophobicity and the strong solid-liquid adhesion of the dually structured ZnO surface are attributed to the suitable size of microstructure and nanostructure. This phenomenon, so different from the Lotus effect, can be called the Petal effect— the super hydrophobicity and the enhanced solid-liquid adhesion coexist on the same surface. The Cassie impregnating model was proposed to understand the underlying reason.


Electrospinning Of Polycaprolactone Core-Shell Nanofibers With Anti-Cancer Drug, Sakib Iqbal, Mujibur Khan, Saheem Absar, Andrew Diamanduros, Samuel Chambers 2016 Georgia Southern University

Electrospinning Of Polycaprolactone Core-Shell Nanofibers With Anti-Cancer Drug, Sakib Iqbal, Mujibur Khan, Saheem Absar, Andrew Diamanduros, Samuel Chambers

Mujibur R. Khan

Encapsulation of a model anti-cancer drug, 5-Fluorouracul (5-FU) into biocompatible core-shell nanofibers of polycaprolactone (PCL) nanofibers was fabricated using a coaxial electrospinning process. Our work aims to solve these issues using a novel method of fabrication of fibers featuring confinement of drugs within a biodegradable core-shell structure, thereby permitting sustained release of drugs to specific sites of treatment, such as tissues affected with tumor cells. The coaxial electrospinning was performed using a sheath polymer solution consisting of a 14 wt% PCL solution and a 5 wt% solution of 5-FU as the core solution. Dimethylformamide (DMF) was used as the solvent ...

Optical Analysis And Fabrication Of Micro And Nanoscale Plasmonically Enhanced Devices, Avery M. Hill 2016 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Optical Analysis And Fabrication Of Micro And Nanoscale Plasmonically Enhanced Devices, Avery M. Hill

Physics Undergraduate Honors Theses

Plasmonic nanostructures have been shown to act as optical antennas that enhance optical devices due to their ability to focus light below the diffraction limit of light and enhance the intensity of the incident light. This study focuses on computational electromagnetic (CEM) analysis of two devices: 1) GaAs photodetectors with Au interdigital electrodes and 2) Au thin-film microstructures. Experiments showed that the photoresponse of the interdigital photodetectors depend greatly on the electrode gap and the polarization of the incident light. Smaller electrode gap and transverse polarization give rise to a larger photoresponse. It was also shown that the response from ...

Kinetics Of Length Scale Dependent Deformation Of Gold Microspheres And Micropillars, A Z M Ariful Islam 2016 The University of Western Ontario

Kinetics Of Length Scale Dependent Deformation Of Gold Microspheres And Micropillars, A Z M Ariful Islam

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

In this thesis length and time scale dependence of the operative plastic deformation mechanisms in Au is studied. Uniaxial compression tests were performed at various loading rates on FIB-milled Au micropillars and single-crystalline Au microspheres of diameter ranging from 0.8 to 6.0 µm to investigate the incipient and bulk plasticity events. Constant-load ambient-temperature creep tests were performed on the micropillars to study the time-dependent plasticity at very slow strain rates. Uniaxial compression tests were also performed on coated Au microspheres to study the effect of extrinsic constraint on the deformation mechanisms.

During uniaxial compression, both the Au micropillars ...

Iot In Automotive Industry - Connecting Cars.Pdf, Luis Arce-Plevnik, Avital Cohen, Tamara Shor

Luis Arce-Plevnik

In the world we live today there is an increasing demand for smart and
connected devices. These devices enable us to complete tasks, enhance
experiences and perform processes in a smoothie way. Such tendency will
continue in growth, therefore by 2020, the 90% of brand new manufactured cars
will feature a built-in connectivity, growing from less than 10% today.

When extrapolating the concept of IoT to the automotive industry, we can
summarize it into three main branches. On one side, we have the connectivity
between vehicles, which is related to connectivity from one vehicle to two or
more vehicles (vehicle-to-vehicle ...

Molecular Combing Of Dna Nanofibers And Comparison To Electrospinning, Tanner L. Buresh 2016 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Molecular Combing Of Dna Nanofibers And Comparison To Electrospinning, Tanner L. Buresh

UCARE Research Products

The goal of these experiments was to create DNA nanofibers through the method of molecular combing (MC) and then compare the MC fibers to fibers created with electrospinning (ES). The experiment was designed and initial samples were created. After confirming that the method would succeed in creating DNA fibers, several parametric studies were performed in order to optimize the experiment and create the most uniform fibers possible. The parametric studies were done on the following variables: substrate material, pH level of DNA solution, and DNA solution concentration. After completion of all experiments, it was determined that although fibers could be ...


Science System Path-Dependencies And Their Influences: Nanotechnology Research In Russia, Maria Karaulova, Abdullah Gok, Oliver Shackleton, Philip Shapira 2016 University of Manchester; Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa

Science System Path-Dependencies And Their Influences: Nanotechnology Research In Russia, Maria Karaulova, Abdullah Gok, Oliver Shackleton, Philip Shapira

Philip Shapira

In this paper, we study the influence of path dependencies on the development of an emerging technology in a transitional economy. Our focus is the development of nanotechnology in Russia in the period between 1990 and 2012. By examining outputs, publication paths and collaboration patterns, we identify a series of factors that help to explain Russia’s limited success in leveraging its ambitious national nanotechnology initiative. The analysis highlights four path-dependent tendencies of Russian nanotechnology research: publication pathways and the gatekeeping role of the Russian Academy of Sciences; increasing geographical and institutional centralisation of nanotechnology research; limited institutional diffusion; and ...

Nitrogen-Doped Titanium Dioxide (N-Doped Tio2) For Visible Light Photocatalysis, Mohammad Khan, Sajid Ansari, Mohd Ansari, Moo Cho 2016 Universiti Brunei Darussalaam

Nitrogen-Doped Titanium Dioxide (N-Doped Tio2) For Visible Light Photocatalysis, Mohammad Khan, Sajid Ansari, Mohd Ansari, Moo Cho

Dr. Mohammad Mansoob Khan

TiO2 is an effective and well-known photocatalyst for water and air purification, but its practical applications in visible light-assisted chemical reactions are hindered mainly by its poor visible light absorption capacity. Nitrogen-doped TiO2 (N-doped TiO2) has attracted considerable attention as a photocatalyst, and rapid progress has been made in enhancing the photocatalytic efficiency of TiO2 under visible light irradiation. N-doped TiO2 exhibits broad absorption in the visible region, which can allow the utilization of a large part of the solar spectrum. This might be useful for environmental and energy applications, such as the photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants, solar cells ...
