We present a platform for research into nanomaterial-enhanced gas sensing using magnetomotive MEMS resonators. A microfabrication process fl ow is developed and carried out to create metallized silicon MEMS resonators. In tandem, a test system based around a balanced electronic bridge is...
The oil sands industry in Alberta produces large volumes of process-affected water (PAW), which is known to contain heavy metals and organic compounds (such as naphthenic acids, naphthalene, phenanthrene, pyrene, etc.) that are toxic and hazardous to the environment. The industry has an ongoing...
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is a rehabilitative technology that can be used to improve walking in individuals with mobility impairments due to neurologic injury or disease. Feedback is essential for efficient FES-assisted walking. The overall goal of my project was to investigate...
The basic human right to have safe and clean drinking water cannot be neglected with the ever-rising worldwide need for drinking water that meets global standards. Local monitoring of water sources is even more vital in areas where access to pure drinking water is limited and its processing...
In this submission we fabricated a humidity-responsive polymer-based actuator by layering negatively charged poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid microgels and positively charged poly(diallyldimethyl ammonium chloride) on top of a flexible plastic substrate. We show that the extent of the...
Specific detection of Campylobacter jejuni using the bacteriophage NCTC 12673 receptor binding protein as a probeDownload
Campylobacter jejuni is found in the intestines of poultry, cattle, swine, wild birds and pet animals and is the major cause of foodborne gastroenteritis in developed countries. We report the use of the receptor binding protein (RBP) of Campylobacter bacteriophage NCTC 12673 for the specific...
This work covers the general scope of stimuli-responsive polymers, with the special focus on the thermoresponsive poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm)-based hydrogels and particles (microgels) and their composites, humidity responsive polyelectrolyte-based bilayer devices, and their applications...
