Extending Depletion Flocculation Phase Behavior Models to Partially Soluble and Aggregating Colloids—AsphaltenesDownload
Mixtures of colloids + non-adsorbing polymers + good solvents are well known to exhibit multiphase behaviors that are driven by the depletion flocculation mechanism where one phase, designated a colloid gas, is largely comprised of polymer and solvent, while the other phase, designated a colloid...
The infrastructure necessary to support diagnostic and pathogen-detection processes does not exist in some regions of the world that need it most. Access to fast, inexpensive and portable diagnostic infrastructure could be a solution to this problem. Next generation lab-on-chip (LOC) systems that...
A multi-purpose settling column was designed to determine settling rate and sediment height allowing the in-situ measurement of yield stress and drainage without disturbing the sediment particle network. The settling column was applied to studying flocculation/densification of model oil sands...
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of Moore's law, which has described the exponential progress in semiconductor patterning technologies, enabling creation of smaller circuitry features at greater densities. These continued hardware developments, economically mass manufactured, have made possible...
Hybrid Polymer Plasmonic Devices for Enhanced All-Plasmonic Switching Based on Photothermal NonlinearityDownload
Nanoplasmonic devices have received much attention in recent years due to their ability to confine light below the diffraction limit, thereby providing a potential route to the creation of nanometer-scale integrated photonic devices. However, with the strong confinement of light come large...
In this thesis, a novel three-dimensional continuum percolation model based on Monte Carlo simulation approach was developed and employed to investigate the percolation behavior of the electrically insulating matrix reinforced with conductive nanoplatelet fillers such as graphene. The...
Storm water ponds have been widely constructed over the past four decades as part of municipal storm water drainage systems. These ponds are designed to collect neighborhood storm water run-off to reduce flooding, but can also improve the quality of water discharged to surface water bodies by...
Management of oil sands tailings from bitumen extraction operations remains a challenge for mineable oil sands producers. Promoting fine solids settling in tailings ponds is key to treating oil sands tailings. Present study explores two methods of tailings treatment – ATA process and polymer...
Conversion of protein-rich biomass waste into value-added industrial products via chemical cross-linking reactions was explored. Two types of cross-linking reagents were investigated: dialdehydes and epoxy resins. Reaction chemistry was the main focus of this investigation and the main reaction...
An alternative method of manipulating fragile MEMS devices during fabrication has been developed. A specialized manual or robotic end effector utilizing a gecko inspired adhesive can replace the slow and costly manual tweezers used by the MEMS foundry Micralyne Inc. Improving the adhesive...
