The cost and the development time of pharamecutical products are often severely affected by the in vitro tests currently employed in pharmaceutical R&D. These assays are often failing to accurately recapitulate diseases and to predict human responses to new medicines. Organ-on-Chip (OOC) devices are designed to result in advanced in vitro...

Drug development is a complex, time-consuming (10 - 15 years) and expensive process. For a new medicine to reach the market, the net expenses covered by the pharmaceutical industry have been estimated to be around $2.6 billion. Nevertheless, the risk of finding adverse effects or toxicity cases once the drug is already on the market is still...

Cavity optomechanics studies the interaction between mechanical resonators and optical cavities through radiation pressure forces and aims to harness this interaction for applications in the areas of high precision metrology, tests of fundamental quantum mechanics, or quantum information processing. For the most ambitious of these applications...

A novel silicone rubber elastic key (SREK) is proposed in this paper for surface mounting technology (SMT) applications. Effects of thermal reflowing stress on the mechanical properties of SMT-SREKs are investigated. The manufactured SMT-SREKs, which underwent various reflowing conditions in advance, are subjected to pressing force and...

In this paper, we study the impact of the idle/dynamic power consumption ratio on the effectiveness of a multi-V <sub>dd</sub> /frequency manycore design. We propose a new tool called LVSiM (a Low-Power and Variation-Aware Manycore Simulator) to carry out the experiments. It is a novel manycore simulator targeted towards low-power...

Background: Elongated nanostructures, such as nanowires, have attracted significant attention for application in silicon-based solar cells. The high aspect ratio and characteristic radial junction configuration can lead to higher device performance, by increasing light absorption and, at the same time, improving the collection efficiency of...

Wireless photoelectrochemical (PEC) devices promise easy device fabrication as well as reduced losses. Here, the design and fabrication of a stand-alone ion exchange material-embedded, Si membrane-based, photoelectrochemical cell architecture with micron-sized pores is shown, to overcome the i) pH gradient formation due to long-distance ion...

This work shows an alternative surface cleaning method for c-Si wafers to replace the standard chemical procedures as RCA or HNO <sub>3</sub> which involve hazardous chemicals or unstable processes. The method consists in a high-temperature oxidation treatment (HTO) performed in a classical tube furnace that incorporates organic and metal...

In this Letter, a slope transfer method to fabricate vertical waveguide couplers is proposed. This method utilises wet etched Si as a mask, and takes advantage of dry etching selectivity between Si and SiC, to successfully transfer the profile from the Si master into SiC. By adopting this method, a &lt;2° slope is achieved. Such a taper can...

We report the results of a computational study regarding the mechanical properties of a lithiated Si/SiO2 interface using reactive molecular dynamics. The study is motivated by an intended application of SiO2-coated Si<br/>nanotubes as fibers in structural batteries with a fiber-reinforced composite architecture while serving as anodes....

In this work we develop a rear emitter silicon solar cell integrating carrier-selective passivating contacts (CSPCs) with different thermal budget in the same device. The solar cell consists of a B-doped poly-Si/SiO<sub>x</sub> hole collector and an i/n hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) stack acting as electron collector placed on the...

In our efforts to address the issues of Si based anodes for Li ion batteries, such as limited active mass loading, rapid capacity degradation and low scalability in manufacturing, we reported a scalable, high mass loading, and additive-free Si nanoparticles (NP) deposition based electrode, but the achieved capacity and cycle life were still...

The connections between glass components are very critical aspects of structural glass design. Laminated steel-to-glass connections have recently been developed that combine high strength and transparency. This work focuses on the Transparent Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA), produced by Dow Corning. TSSA is typically used for the realization...

The human controller (HC) in manual control of a dynamical system often follows a visible and predictable reference path (target). The HC can adopt a control strategy combining closed-loop feedback and an open-loop feedforward response. The effects of the target signal waveform shape and the system dynamics on the human feedforward dynamics...

In this work we present a theoretical analysis of charge carriers transport mechanisms in IBC-SHJ solar cells. The concepts of contact and transport selectivity are correlated through the band bending at c-Si interface and are used to identify thin-film silicon parameters affecting fill factor (FF) and open-circuit voltage (V<sub>OC</sub>)....

Silicon semiconductors with a thin surface layer of silica were first modified with polyelectrolytes (polyethyleneimine, polystyrene sulfonate and poly(allylamine)) via a facile layer-by-layer deposition approach. Subsequently, lipid vesicles were added to the preformed polymeric cushion, resulting in the adsorption of intact vesicles or...

Recently, a monolithic scintillator detector for time-of-flight (TOF)/depth-of-interaction (DOI) positron emission tomography (PET) was developed. It has a detector spatial resolution of ∼1.7 mm full-width-at-half-maximum (FWHM), a coincidence resolving time (CRT) of ∼215 ps FWHM, and ∼4.7 mm FWHM DOI resolution. Here, we demonstrate, for the...

Multi-junction solar cells are considered for various applications, as they tackle various loss mechanisms for single junction solar cells. These losses include thermalization and non-absorption below the band gap. In this work, a tandem configuration comprising copper-indium-gallium-di-selenide (CIGS) and hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si...
