Synthesis of millimeter-scale carbon nanotube arrays and their applications on electrochemical supercapacitorsDownload
This research is aimed at synthesizing millimeter-scale carbon nanotube arrays (CNTA) by conventional chemical vapor deposition (CCVD) and water-assisted chemical vapor deposition (WACVD) methods, and exploring their application as catalyst supports for electrochemical supercapacitors. The...
We have designed and engineered bi-catalyst magnesium hydride composites with superior sorption performance to that of ball milled magnesium hydride catalyzed with the individual baseline catalysts. We have examined the effect of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT)-metallic nanoparticle...
Metal particle catalyst formation from thin films for the creation of vertically aligned carbon nanotube structuresDownload
This work contains research associated with the metal catalysts used in the formation of vertically aligned carbon nanotube (VACNT) films through catalytic chemical vapour deposition (CCVD). The solid-state dewetting process of thin metal films is studied using Ni. In the dewetting process, grain...
Accumulative roll bonding was adapted to fabricate a carbon nanotube reinforced aluminum matrix composite. The microstructure was investigated by transmission electron microscopy, and it was confirmed that the nanotubes were embedded into the metal matrix while maintaining their multiwalled...
Charged Entities Interacting with Electronically Responsive Structures with Implications for the Modeling of Interactions between Carbon Nanotubes and DNADownload
Understanding interactions between charged entities with electronically responsive structures embedded in an electrolytic environment is important because of the diverse range of practical applications. This study was motivated by the technique where single stranded DNA was used to separate...
Low energy electron point source (LEEPS) microscopy is the simplest embodiment of an electron microscope, consisting of only a source, a sample and a detector. In a specific regime, LEEPS may also be used to create in-line holograms; special interference patterns that contain the information...
Development and Analysis of Magnetic Carbon Nanotube and Microbubble-Assisted High Centrifugation Field Techniques For The Increase of Cell Membrane PermeabilityDownload
To cure diseases at the gene level, therapeutic biomaterials need to enter the cells. However, since the cell membrane is a highly selective structure, its permeability is usually very low. In this thesis, we propose two innovative and efficient methods to increase cell membrane permeability....
Electrons, the fundamental charge carriers in solid-state devices, possess three intrinsic properties: mass, charge and spin. Spin is a quantum mechanical property, but can be loosely visualized as a tiny “intrinsic” magnetic dipole moment attached to an electron. In conventional electron...
