Thermal-Optical Modeling of a Signal Enhancement Approach for Paper-Based Diagnostics

D. Gasperino [1]
[1] Intellectual Ventures Laboratory, Bellevue, WA, USA

INTRODUCTION: Point of care diagnostics aimed at low-resource settings need to be relatively simple, robust and low-cost. The most commonly-used diagnostic platform in these settings is the lateral flow assay (LFA). LFAs are paper-based immunoassays designed to perform on-strip ... 詳細を見る

Fluid Coupling Effects Of An Array Of Oscillators Vibrating In Close Proximity To A Solid Surface

A. K. Manickavasagam [1]
[1] University of Canterbury, New Zealand

High speed non-contact Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) comprising a single cantilever beam is used to track the motion of live-cells as it ensures no damage to soft biological samples [1]. PRONANO arrays [2] consisting of multiple cantilever beams have been used to achieve faster scan ... 詳細を見る

Push or Pull, How Does Silk Flow?

J. Sparkes [1],
[1] University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK

Silk is one of the longest used and most recognizable textiles that we, as a society, use regularly. We see it as a luxury good, worn as an indicator of success and value. However, despite mankind having domesticated and farmed silkworms for millennia, we still know relatively little ... 詳細を見る

FEM Analysis of MEMS Capacitive Presure Sensor with Segmented Boss Structure for Diaphragm

A. K. Ramesh [1], P. Ramesh [1],
[1]College of Engineering Munnar, Munnar, Kerala, India

Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) based capacitive pressure sensor designs with improved sensitivity is always a matter of great concern and the recent developments in such a design is the MEMS capacitive pressure sensor with bossed diaphragm.The bossed diaphragm model improves ... 詳細を見る

Experimental Investigations and Numerical Simulation of Electrothermally Actuated Micro-gripper

B. K. S. Kishor[1], T. Ramesh [1],
[1] NIT Trichy, Tiruchirappalli Tamil Nadu, India.

At the micron-level, thermal actuation exerts larger forces compared to the widely-used electrostatic actuation. To obtain large displacements at low voltage the principle of Electro Thermal actuation is used. It works on the principle of selective non-uniform Joule heating which results ... 詳細を見る

Uncertainty Assessment and Sensitivity Analysis of Heat Generation within a Lithium-Ion Battery

G. Liebig [1], G. Gupta [1], K. Derendorf [1], C. Agert [1],
[1] DLR Institute of Networked Energy Systems, Oldenburg, Germany

Dedicated work in modeling, simulation and design optimization of Lithium-ion Battery (LIBs) was done in the past decades, and still, the most widely used one for electrochemical processes is the Newman model. [1] The underlying parameters are treated deterministically, but the impact of ... 詳細を見る

Electron Trajectories in Scanning Field-Emission Microscopy

H. Cabrera [1],
[1] Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland

The Scanning Field Emission Microscopy (SFEM) is a novel technology similar to the better known Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM). In STM, electrons are exchanged between the outermost atom of a sharp tip and the outermost atom of a target over sub-nanometer distances by means of the ... 詳細を見る

Modelling and Loss Analysis of Meso-Structured Perovskite Solar Cells

Xue Hansong [1],
[1] National University of Singapore, Singapore

Recently, the pursuit of organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells has been significantly advanced because of the promising high-efficiency potential of the perovskite materials. Based on the structure of dye sensitized solar cells, Miyasaka et al. in 2009 firstly incorporated a ... 詳細を見る

Reducing Loudspeaker Systems Panel Vibrations

D. Cinanni [1],
[1] ASK Industries Spa, subject to direction and coordination of JVCKENWOOD Corporation, Italy

One of the main design questions in loudspeaker enclosures concern vibrations reduction. An ideal cabinet would be infinitely rigid, so a section of an engineer work is focused on this goal. Solutions depend by loudspeaker system audio field: Line Arrays, Automotive environments or hi ... 詳細を見る

Thermal and Hydraulic Modeling of Road Tunnel Joints

C. H. Klotoé [1], F. Duhaime [1], L. Guizani [1],
[1] Département de Génie de la Construction, École de technologie supérieure, Montréal, QC, Canada

This paper focuses on the use of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to develop a 2D numerical model of expansion joints for road tunnels. The model was developed using the coefficient form PDEs interface. The model includes water and energy conservation equations. It takes into account ... 詳細を見る
