Municipal solid waste incineration (MSWI) bottom ash, due to its high mineral content, presents great potential as supplementary cementitious material (SCM). Weathering, also known as aging, is a treatment process commonly employed in waste management to minimize the risk of heavy metal leaching from MSWI bottom ash. Using weathered MSWI...

Thin film silicon solar cells are a type of photovoltaic technology with the advantage of having thin layers of silicon to generate electricity. Unlike traditional crystalline silicon solar cells, which use thick silicon wafers, thin-film silicon solar cells use amorphous silicon that can be made with much thinner layers of silicon. This allows...

An attractive approach to mitigate hydrogen embrittlement (HE) is to use nano-sized particles to immobilize hydrogen. However, the atomic scale relationship between different particle-matrix characteristics in aluminum alloys and the susceptibility to HE is unknown. In this study, the effects of interactions between various interfaces and...

The paper aims to evaluate the effect of chemical composition on the Hot Cracking Susceptibility (HCS) using mechanical and non-mechanical hot cracking criteria during solidification. The criteria were SKK as a mechanical criterion. Feurer, Clyne Davis, and Katgerman as non-mechanical criteria. The criteria were implemented at various...

Microbes, and the biofilms they form on surfaces, generally have a negative impact on performance. Well­-known examples are the increase of drag in ships and pipes, and the accelerated corrosion of metallic structures known as MIC. Among microbes, diatoms form a large unicellular algae group known to play a relevant role in the first stages of...

The retrogression and re-aging (RRA) processes, aimed mainly at tailoring intergranular precipitates, could significantly improve the corrosion resistance (i.e., stress corrosion cracking resistance) without considerably decreasing the strength, which signifies that an efficient control of the size, distribution and evolution of intergranular...

The alloy design and homogenization processes are intimately associated with the microstructure, phase composition and performance for Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloys. The microstructures and phase composition of a series of Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloys before and after the homogenization treatments were investigated along with thermodynamic calculation to...

In superconducting quantum circuits, aluminum is one of the most widely used materials. It is currently also the superconductor of choice for the development of topological qubits. However, aluminum-based devices suffer from poor magnetic field compatibility. Herein, this limitation is resolved by showing that adatoms of heavy elements (e.g.,...

Ultrasonic wedge bonding of aluminum (Al) wires is a widely applied interconnect technology for power electronic packaging. The joint quality of the wedge bonding is mainly affected by the process parameters and material properties. Inappropriate process parameters will lead to failure modes such as chip surface pit, metal layer peeling off,...

Thin-film solar cells are second-generation solar cells and they are gaining more traction than the first-generation c-Si solar cells. This is due to the advantages they have over conventional solar cells. The advantages are that they are lightweight, flexible, cheaper and also have better aesthetics than conventional solar cells. Thin-film...

The use of clean energy sources for meeting the world’s energy requirements is increasing at an exponential rate, thus opening up new areas for research and development. The second generation of photovoltaics, especially flexible thin-film solar cells, are increasingly being used over the first generation crystalline silicon technologies due to...

This paper describes the microfabrication and electrical characterization of aluminum-coated superconducting through-silicon vias (TSVs) with sharp superconducting transition above 1 K. The sharp superconducting transition was achieved by means of fully conformal and void-free DC-sputtering of the TSVs with Al, and is here demonstrated in up...

Bonded patches are widely used in several industry sectors for repairing damaged plates, cracks in metallic structures, and reinforcement of damaged structures. Composite patches have optimal properties such as high strength‐to‐weight ratio, easiness in being applied, and high flexibility. Due to recent rapid growth in the aerospace industry,...

Aluminum hydrate dehydration interfaces were studied using a van der Waals density functional. The interface configurations investigated here as a first exploration of possible interface geometries, were all found to have a reasonable probability of occurring. From gibbsite/boehmite and boehmite/γ-Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> interface...

The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of the structure of Mn-Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) on the adhesion behavior of composite adhesives on two Al alloys (L3005 and L8079). The composite adhesives were made out of the UV-curing Bisphenol A glycidylmethacrylate/triethylene glycol dimethacrylate (BT) as polymer matrix and the...

There is a high demand for novel flexible micro-devices for energy harvesting from low-frequency and random mechanical sources. The research of new functional designs is required to strategically enhance the performances and to increase the control on mechanical flexibility. In this work we report the fabrication and characterization of bi...

In the advanced semiconductor industry, modern electronic devices are expected to realize complex functions with minimized size, which requires an increase in the density of on-chip interconnects. To meet this demand, the dimension of interconnects is reduced and it requires the narrowing of metal interconnects to carry the increasing current...

Single-crystal copper films on sapphire have recently been reported upon in relation to graphene growth on these films. In the present paper the kinetics of the formation of single crystal copper films is investigated. We demonstrate the importance of heating the sapphire substrate in 1000 hPa oxygen, followed by a fast cooling prior to...

The effect of shot peen forming on the mechanical behavior of fiber metal laminates (FMLs) based on aluminium-lithium alloy was investigated to reveal the strengthening mechanism and to dispel the suspicion that shot peen forming may result in the performance deterioration of FMLs. The interlaminar, static strength and fatigue properties of...
