Electrostatic adhesion testing of metallizations on silicon substrates
A novel technique is developed to measure quantitatively the adhesion strength of metallizations deposited on substrates such as silicon. Electrostatic adhesion testing employs electrostatic forces to generate delaminating ...
Biodegradable polymer scaffold fabrication and the creation of tissue-engineered bone
It is estimated that over one million surgeries to restore lost bone function are performed each year in the U.S. Although existing therapies generally result in adequate restoration of mechanical or aesthetic function, ...
Methane emission from irrigated rice cultivation: Quantities, models and practice
Three experiments focused on the contribution of rice productivity to methane emission were conducted in Texas flooded rice paddy soils during 1994-95 growing seasons. Measurements of methane emission from different rice ...
Factors limiting the accuracy of mechanical-property measurement by nanoindentation
Nanoindentation techniques have been widely used to measure thin film mechanical properties. One of the most commonly used methods of analysis of nanoindentation load and displacement data was developed by Oliver and Pharr. ...
