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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
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) . The geometrical structure of the PXCM can change to increase the energy absorbed. The hysteretic nature of the PXCM makes the potential...
