  2. Garment-Integrated Technologies Created Using Reactive Vapor Deposition

    10 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Trisha Andrew

    Off-the-shelf garments, textiles and threads/yarns, can be nondestructively transformed into electronic circuit components using reactive vapor deposition. Selected technologies created using vapor-coated fibers and textiles will be described...

  3. Electro-thermal Properties of Carbon Nanotubes

    03 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Igor Bejenari

    A given technical report provides a short review of the existing experimental data and theoretical models related to electro-thermal properties of single-wall (SW) carbon nanotubes (CNT) and describes the temperature dependence of single- and multi-tube carbon nanotube field effect transistors...

  4. The Quest for Safer Rechargeable Batteries

    19 Dec 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Vilas Pol

    The ViPER (Vilas Pol Energy Research) laboratory focuses on the development of high-capacity electrode materials, their engineering for longer cycle life and improved safety.

  5. Design, Fabrication, and Characterization of 3D Hollow Ceramic Nano-Architectures

    06 Dec 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Dongchan Jang

    In this work, we present a new design criterion capable of significantly abating strength degradation in lightweight materials, by successfully combining size-induced strengthening effect in nanomaterials with architectural design of cellular porous materials. Hollow-tube-based 3D ceramic...

  6. Ionization Potential of Small Molecules Using DFT

    27 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan

    Use DFT simulations to explore the ionization potential (energy required to remove an electron) in atoms and small molecules. Disclaimer: While very powerful, DFT makes well known approximations and the results obtained in this module are approximate. 

  7. Phase Transforming Cellular Materials (Spherical Shells)

    27 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Valeria Grillo, ASHLEY MIN, Gavin Carter, Yunlan Zhang, Kristiaan William Hector, David Restrepo Arango, Chidubem Nuela Enebechi, Pablo Daniel Zavattieri, Nilesh Mankame

    “Phase transforming cellular materials (PXCMs) are a class of materials whose unit cells exhibit multiple configurations (metastable or bistable) [1]. The geometrical structure of the PXCM can change to increase the energy absorbed. The hysteretic nature of the PXCM makes the potential...
