Brownian dynamics simulations of single-wall carbon nanotube separation by type using dielectrophoresis
We theoretically investigate the separation of individualized metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) in a dielectrophoretic (DEP) flow device. The SWNTs motion is simulated by a Brownian Dynamics ...
Context for system resource management: An application in wireless data management
Context information brings new opportunities for efficient and effective system resource management of mobile devices. In this work, we focus on the use of context information to manage wireless data. The findings from our ...
Change in cell motility and metabolism following culture under low shear conditions
Recent studies suggest that the human immune system, and in particular lymphocyte function, may be suppressed during space flight. However, the mechanisms by which mechanical forces affect the function of immune cells are ...
Towards Photocurrent Production By Gold Nanoarrays with Self-Assembled Monolayer Coatings
This thesis proposes to use optical rectennae (rectifying antennae) for generating electricity by harvesting solar energy. Rectennae have theoretical efficiency over 90%, well above that of current photovoltaic devices. ...
