  1. 1. Nanostructured Bulk Thermoelectrics : Scalable Fabrication Routes, Processing and Evaluation

    Author : Mohsen Yakhshi Tafti; Muhammet S. Toprak; Gao Min; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thermoelectric; Iron antimonide FeSb2 Skutterudite; Copper Selenide Cu2Se ; Spark Plasma Sintering SPS ; nanomaterial; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Current fossil fuel based energy sources have a huge shortcoming when one discusses their efficiency. The conversion efficiency of fossil fuel-based technologies is less than 40% in best cases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Synthesis and Characterization of Carbon Based One-Dimensional Structures : Tuning Physical and Chemical Properties

    Author : HamidReza Barzegar; Thomas Wågberg; Hans Kuzmany; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbon Nanotube; single-walled carbon nanotube; nitrogen doped; chemical vapor deposition; fullerene; hybrid structures; nanomaterials; nanomaterial;

    Abstract : Carbon nanostructures have been extensively used in different applications; ranging from electronic and optoelectronic devices to energy conversion. The interest stems from the fact that covalently bonded carbon atoms can form a wide variety of structures with zero-, one- and two-dimensional configuration with different physical properties.

  3. 3. Characterization of Nanomaterials for Interconnect and Thermal Management in Electronic Packaging

    Author : Si Chen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : heat dissipation; electronic packaging; nanomaterial; characterization; thermal interface material; solder; thermoelectric.; interconnect; through silicon via;

    Abstract : Electronic packaging, protecting the fragile chip from atmosphere and providing the paths for signal transmission as well as heat dissipation, is one of the most important parts in electronic devices. The cost, dimensions, performance, and reliability of an electronic device therefore strongly depend on its packaging structures and materials. READ MORE

  4. 4. Electrocatalysts for sustainable hydrogen energy : disordered and heterogeneous nanomaterials

    Author : Joakim Ekspong; Thomas Wågberg; Ludvig Edman; Tomas Edvinsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Water splitting; Electrochemistry; Nanomaterials; Density functional theory; Hydrogen evolution; MoS2; Fuel cell; nanomaterials; nanomaterial; fysik; Physics; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : With the current global greenhouse gas emissions, our remaining carbon budget is depleted in only 7 years. After that, several biophysical systems are predicted to collapse such as the arctic ice, coral reefs and the permafrost, leading to potentially irreversible consequences. READ MORE

  5. 5. Probing the Nano-Bio Interface Using Surface Based Analytical Techniques

    Author : Rickard Frost; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanotoxicology; cell membrane; nanomedicine; melanophores; QCM-D; nanomaterial; DPI; AFM; supported lipid bilayer;

    Abstract : In recent years, the use of manufactured nanomaterials has been rapidly increasing in a wide range of application areas. Among others, these areas of application include cosmetics, medicine, clothing, and sporting goods. The small size of nanomaterials offers unique properties that are not possible to obtain by the same material in bulk. READ MORE
