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...
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...
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...
Hybrids formed by biological entities and human-made nano-structures have been intensively studied in recent years due to their very interesting properties and applications. DNA-carbon nanotube (CNT) hybrid is one such material and the motivation of this PhD study. The interaction of DNA building...
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...
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...
Immune models have been highlighted in nanotoxicology for their applicability in understanding the effects of both accidental exposure (e.g. environmental exposure) and therapeutic exposure (e.g. targeted drug delivery) to nanomaterials (NMs). The experiments presented here examine the...
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...
