  1. 1. Study of Electrochemical Behaviour and Corrosion Resistance of Materials for Pacemaker Lead Applications

    Author : Andreas Örnberg; Jinshan Pan; Jukka Lausmaa; Ann Cornell; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Co-base alloy; 35N LT; MP35N; Ta; TiN coating; electrochemical behaviour; corrosion resistance; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : For patients suffering bradycardia, i.e., too slow heart rhythm, the common treatment is having a pacemaker implanted. The pacemaker system consists of the pacemaker and a pacing lead. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electrochemical machining: towards 3D simulation and application on SS316

    Author : A. A. Gomez-Gallegos; UK University of Edinburgh; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electrochemical machining; 3D Simulation; FEM; stainless Steel 316; surface Finish; Maskinteknik; Mechanical Engineering;

    Abstract : Electrochemical machining (ECM) is a non-conventional manufacturing process, which uses electrochemical dissolution to shape any conductive metal regardless of its mechanical properties and without leaving behind residual stresses or tool wear. Therefore, ECM can be an alternative for machining difficult-to-cut materials, complex geometries, and materials with improved characteristics, such as strength, heat-resistance or corrosion-resistance.

  3. 3. Mesoporous Materials for Fast Charging Electrochemical Energy Storage

    Author : Giulio Calcagno; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; electrochemical energy storage; redox-active electrolytes; mesoporous carbon; hybrid supercapacitors; fast charging storage; ordered mesoporous materials; mesoporous titanium dioxide; lithium-ion battery;

    Abstract : High performing electrochemical energy storage (EES) devices are needed to cope with the increasing energy requirements of modern society. Electrode materials must store lots of energy, charge/discharge fast and be environmentally friendly. READ MORE

  4. 4. In-situ Studies of Spontaneous Potential Oscillations during Electrochemical Deposition of Copper and Cuprous Oxide

    Abstract : People suffering from certain types of arrhythmia may benefit from the implantation of a cardiac pacemaker. Pacemakers artificially stimulate the heart by applying short electrical pulses to the cardiac tissue to restore and maintain a steady heart rhythm. By adjusting the pulse delivery rate the heart is stimulated to beat at desired pace. READ MORE
