ATOMISTIC SIMULATION STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF POINT DEFECTS ON THE INCEPTION OF PLASTIC DEFORMATION IN METALS
Atomistic simulations have been used to study the effect of various types of point defects on the mechanical response of FCC single crystals in nanoindentation and uniaxial tests. To study the effect of spatial distribution ...
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 ...
SIMULATION STUDIES AND FABRICATION OF MICROTRAPS WITH LONG ASPECT RATIO TO STORE HIGH DENSITY OF POSITRONS
Conventionally, non-neutral antimatter is stored using a Penning-Malmberg trap, a single tube with aspect ratios being of the order of less than 10:1. Parallel microtubes with aspect ratios of 1000:1 have the potential to ...
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 ...
PROTEIN-BASED NANOFABRICS FOR MULTIFUNCTIONAL AIR FILTERING
With the fast development of economics and population, air pollution is getting worse and becomes a great concern worldwide. The release of chemicals, particulates and biological materials into air can lead to various ...
SOLVENT-LIGAND-SURFACE INTERACTIONS OF NANOPARTICLES FOR APPLIED CATALYSIS
This work presents the research performed to understand solvent-ligand-nanoparticle interactions for applied catalysis. Dispersed gold nanoparticles can demonstrate greater catalytic activity than their supported counterparts ...
