Electron transport within living cells is essential for energy conservation in all respiring and photosynthetic organisms. While a few bacteria transport electrons over micrometer distances to their surroundings, filaments of cable bacteria are hypothesized to conduct electric currents over centimeter distances. We used resonance Raman...

Closed-form expressions to describe artificial dielectric layers (ADLs) with finite conductivity are presented. The propagation of a generic plane wave within the artificial material is described by means of transmission line models, where each layer is represented as an equivalent shunt impedance. The given analytical formulas for the shunt...

Optimization of heat source distribution in two dimensional heat conduction for electronic cooling problem is considered. Convex optimization is applied to this problem for the first time by reformulating the objective function and the non-convex constraints. Mathematical analysis is performed to describe the heat source equation and the...

InP and InZnP colloidal quantum dots (QDs) are promising materials for application in light-emitting devices, transistors, photovoltaics, and photocatalytic cells. In addition to possessing an appropriate bandgap, high absorption coefficient, and high bulk carrier mobilities, the intrinsic toxicity of InP and InZnP is much lower than for...

Strongly correlated materials show unique solid-state phase transitions with rich nanoscale phenomenology that can be controlled by external stimuli. Particularly interesting is the case of light–matter interaction in the proximity of the metal–insulator transition of heteroepitaxial nickelates. In this work, we use near-infrared laser light in...

This paper presents a readout circuit for a carbon dioxide (COࠢ) sensor that measures the CO₂-dependent thermal time constant of a hot-wire transducer. The readout circuit periodically heats up the transducer and uses a phase-domain Δ Σ modulator to digitize the phase shift of the resulting...

Stationary and dynamic heat and mass transfer analyses of building components are an essential part of energy efficient design of new and retrofitted buildings. Generally, a single constant thermal conductivity value is assumed for each material layer in construction components. However, the variability of thermal conductivity may depend on many...

This report is an exploration of 3D Printed Thermal Actuators (PTAs). The goal of the project is to create a 3D printed demonstrator that shows the qualities of PTAs.

PTAs are created with a Voxel8 Multi-material printer which prints both PLA and a silver paste. When electrical power is applied to the silver trace, the plastic will heat...

Responsible research and innovation (RRI) has become an important topic in the academic community and in policy circles, but it has not yet been systematically included in the innovation process of companies. We discuss how companies can integrate RRI into their corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies and business strategy. To this end...

Majorana zero modes (MZMs) are prime candidates for robust topological quantum bits, holding a great promise for quantum computing. Semiconducting nanowires with strong spin orbit coupling offer a promising platform to harness one-dimensional electron transport for Majorana physics. Demonstrating the topological nature of MZMs relies on...

Crude oil, coal and gas are currently the main resources of energy in the world. The World Energy Outlook claimed in 2007 that the major source of energy (about 84%) would still be generated from fossil fuels in 2030. By these projections, the world's fossil fuel reserves will be consumed within a few decades, making it necessary to have a well...

Metal halide perovskites are generating enormous excitement for use in solar cells and light-emission applications, but devices still show substantial non-radiative losses. Here, we show that by combining light and atmospheric treatments, we can increase the internal luminescence quantum efficiencies of polycrystalline perovskite films from 1...

Microfluidics has changed the way we think about laboratory experimental design. With the use of lab-on-chip devices, we are capable of carrying out experiments that include several functions on a single chip. Despite a lot of progress in the miniaturization of these devices, the peripheral systems which control the microfluidic functionalities...

To improve the conversion efficiency of c-Si solar cells, it is crucial to quench the recombination losses at c-Si/metal interface. Such recombination losses are able to be reduced by using carrier-selective passivating contacts by means of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) and poly-crystalline silicon (poly-Si)/tunneling silicon oxide ...
