Analysis of DC Electrical Conductivity Models of Carbon Nanotube-Polymer Composites with Potential Application to Nanometric Electronic Devices
12 Mar 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Rafael Vargas-Bernal, Gabriel Herrera-Pérez, Ma. Elena Calixto-Olalde, Margarita Tecpoyotl-Torres
The design of nanometric electronic devices requires novel materials for improving their electrical performance from stages of design until their fabrication. Until now, several DC electrical conductivity models for composite materials have been proposed. However, these models must be valued to...
Magnesium Phyllo (Organo) Silicate: A Clay to Play with in Materials Science
24 Apr 2012 | | Contributor(s):: M. Eswaramoorthy
The synthesis and applications of amino functionalized clay will be discussed in this talk. The tailor made clay containing amino pendants is easily dispersible in water. This property has been effectively utilized to make water soluble clay-metal nanoparticles composites, clay-protein and...
Organic-Inorganic Hybrids for Energy & Environmental Applications
07 Feb 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Emmanuel P. Giannelis
In recent years, "storm clouds" have been forming at the interface of energy resources, environment, and climate change that demand concerted action by scientists, engineers, and policy makers. In this talk I will present a new materials platform based on organic-inorganic hybrids that provides...
