    Abstract : Through 270 million years of evolution, the finely tuned hierarchical structure of wood has been optimized for efficient nutrient transport and exceptional mechanical stability. Its distinctive orthotropic constitution can provide inspiration and design opportunities for the development of novel functional materials. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functional Oxide Materials exhibiting Ionic Conductivity for Future Energy Conversion Needs

    Author : FRANCIS GACHAO KINYANJUI; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; neutron diffraction; perovskites; oxygen deficient perovskites; BaSnO3; Rietveld refinements; BaZrO3; in-situ cells; proton conduction; deuteron position; Ba3In2ZrO8;

    Abstract : Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that transform the chemical energy in hydrogen and oxygen into electrical energy at high efficiencies and produce only water vapour emissions. Materials with the perovskite or fluorite structure types are commonly employed as the ion conducting ceramic electrolyte membranes in intermediate and high temperature fuel cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Self-doped Conjugated Polyelectrolytes for Bioelectronics Applications

    Author : Erica Zeglio; Olle Inganäs; George Malliaras; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Self-doped conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs) are a class of conducting polymers constituted of a π-conjugated backbone and charged side groups. The ionic groups provide the counterions needed to balance the charged species formed in the CPEs backbones upon oxidation. READ MORE

  5. 5. In Light of Ionic Materials : A short exploration of ionic materials for light-related applications

    Author : Brando Adranno; Anja-Verena Mudring; Annegret Stark; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : Ionic liquids (ILs) have been one of the most attractive classes of materials of the last decades. The reason behind this is their peculiar set of properties, which enable their possible application in several research fields. ILs are salts that exhibit a very low melting point, which has been arbitrarily defined to be below 100 °C. READ MORE
