Study of atmospheric pressure weakly ionized plasma as surface compatibilization technique for improved plastic composites loaded with cellulose based fillers
Atmospheric pressure plasmas have gained considerable interest from researchers recently for their unique prospective of engineering surfaces with plasma without the need of vacuum systems. They offer the advantage of low ...
Persistant Photoconductivity of Strontium Titanate
Strontium titanate (SrTiO$_3$) is a transparent conducting oxide with a range of interesting properties, including a large, temperature-dependent dielectric constant and superconductivity at low temperatures. It has a wide ...
PROCESSING, WEAR, AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF POLYETHYLENE COMPOSITES PREPARED WITH PRISTINE AND ORGANOSILANE-TREATED CARBON NANOFIBERS
Polymers and nanocomposites have been increasingly used for tribological applications over the last few decades. In particular, ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is a high performance polymer with excellent ...
Electrical and Optoelectronic Properties of Two-Dimensional Materials
Electrical and optoelectronic properties of bulk semiconductor materials have been extensively explored in last century. However, when reduced to one-dimensional and two-dimensional, many semiconductors start to show unique ...
CORRELATION BETWEEN IRRADIATION DAMAGE AND MICRO-MAGNETIC PROPERTIES FOR REACTOR STEELS
Magnetic domain structures are strongly influenced by material microstructures including crystal structures and defects. Correlations via microstructure between mechanical properties of steels and their magnetic properties ...
Atomic Jump Frequencies in Intermetallic Compounds Studied Using Perturbed Angular Correlation of Gamma Rays
Atomic jump frequencies were determined in a variety of intermetallic compounds through analysis of nuclear relaxation of spectra measured using the nuclear hyperfine technique, perturbed angular correlation (PAC) of gamma ...
EXCIMER LASER INTERACTION WITH ZINC OXIDE
When single crystal ZnO is exposed to 193-nm laser photons in vacuum at fluences below 100 mJ/cm
POLY(3-HYDROXYBUTYRATE-CO-3-HYDROXYVALERATE) - CELLULOSE NANOWHISKERS COMPOSITES BY SOLUTION CASTING
In this research, renewable biobased nanocomposites based on poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) and cellulose nanowhiskers were prepared by solution casting. Nanocomposite structure and property investigations ...
CHARACTERIZING DISSOLVED GASES IN CRYOGENIC LIQUID FUELS
Pressure-Density-Temperature-Composition (PρT-x) measurements of cryogenic fuel mixtures are a historical challenge due to the difficulties of maintaining cryogenic temperatures and precision isolation of a mixture sample. ...
NANOSTRUCTURED ELECTROCATALYSTS FOR OXYGEN REDUCTION AND EVOLUTION REACTIONS
Highly active, low cost and durable electrocatalysts are desired for the development and commercialization of fuel cells and metal-air batteries. The efficiency of these devices is significantly limited by the activation ...
