All-Carbon Molecular Electronics: From Flexible Fabrication to Multi-Step Transport and Molecular OptoelectronicsDownload
The central idea of molecular electronics is to incorporate individual or ensemble molecules into the electronic circuit units in the hope of creating miniaturized functional devices with unique properties. This dissertation aims to present my efforts to pursue this ultimate goal, covering the...
Development of an optical biosensor based on Mach-Zehnder Interferometry for detection of Listeria monocytogenesDownload
Label-free optical biosensors are widely used for the detection of pathogens due to their low-cost, real-time detection and high sensitivity. A Mach-Zehnder Interferometer (MZI) based biosensor has been developed for the detection of gram-positive bacteria, Listeria monocytogenes. An extensive...
Fabrication, modeling and experimental study of bending deformation of micro-ferrogel fibers in a non-uniform magnetic fieldDownload
Hydrogel smart polymers have achieved a great attention in the research area of drug delivery, MEMS/NEMS, microfluidics and sensor design because of their responsiveness to various environmental stimuli- pH, temperature, light, electric field, enzyme etc. This thesis presents the modeling,...
The history of free and open source software (FOSS) spans the better part of 20 years. We are now seeing the principles of FOSS spread to different media - including, notably, to hardware and its distribution models. Recently, the term open source hardware (OSHW) was defined at the 2011 open...
This current work investigates pore structure of various reservoir-rock materials using state-of-the-art microscopy such as micro-computed tomography (micro-CT) and Focused Ion Beam-Scanning electron Microscopy (FIB-SEM). Novel sample preparation methods have been developed for such rock cores,...
