Modeling the interphase of a polymer-based nanodielectric
(IEEE Transactions on Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation, 2014)
A three-phase theoretical model is proposed that is suitable for describing the effective permittivity of polymer-matrix composites containing spherical nanoparticles. The model accounts for the presence of an interphase ...
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 ...
Computational Modeling of Carbon Nanotube Turfs
Carbon nanotubes grown on a substrate form a turf - a complex structure of intertwined, mostly nominally vertical tubes, cross-linked by adhesive contact and few bracing tubes. The turfs are compliant and good thermal and ...
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 ...
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 ...
