These installations can provide power to an isolated home or small community, or are sometimes connected to electric power networks. There are many of these installations around the world, particularly in developing nations as they can provide an economical source of energy without the purchase of fuel. Micro hydro systems complement photovoltaic solar energy systems because in many areas, water flow, and thus available hydro power, is highest in the

Future Roles of Milli-, Micro-, and Nano- Grids Future Roles of Milli-, Micro-, and Nano- Grids Title Future Roles of Milli-, Micro-, and Nano- Grids Publication Type Conference Paper Year of Publication 2011 Authors Marnay, Chris, Bruce Nordman, and Judy Lai Conference Name CIGRÉ International Symposium The electric power system of the future - Integrating supergrids and microgrids Date Published 09/2011 Publisher LBNL Conference Location Bologna, Italy Keywords electricity markets and policy group, energy analysis and environmental impacts department Abstract Although it has slowed considerably, consumption of electricity continues to grow in developed economies. Further, there are some unknowns which might accelerate this growth, such as electrification of vehicle fleets and geothermal heat pump space and water heating. Most analysts anticipate that distributed energy resources (DER) will provide a large share of the expanded generation capacity required to meet this seemingly inexorably increasing electricity demand. Further, given the urgency of tackling the climate change problem, most of the added assets must be carbon free renewables or nuclear, end-use efficiency improvements, or highly efficient fossil-fired technologies. In developed economies worldwide, the current power delivery paradigm has been in place for more than a century, i.e. since the emergence of polyphase AC systems around the turn of the last century. A key feature of this structure is that, in principle, universal service is delivered at a consistent level of power quality and reliability (PQR) throughout large regions. This paper describes a future possible structure for the electricity generation and delivery system that leaves the existing high voltage meshed grid paradigm in place, but involves radical reorganization of parts of the distribution network and customer sites. Managing a much more diverse dispersed system poses major challenges to the current centralized grid paradigm, particularly since many of these assets are small to tiny by macrogrid standards and they may ultimately number in the millions. They are also not ones that centralized control can rely upon to function in traditionally dependable ways, e.g. renewable generation can be highly variable and changes in output of generators are not independent. Although most involved in the industry agree that a paradigm shift is both necessary and desirable to manage the new system, the nature of the future system remains quite unclear. In the possible structure described here, the traditional grid, or macrogrid, remains similar at the high voltage meshed level. Three new entities are added more locally: community grids or milligrids that operate a segment of the existing distribution system, microgrids which are akin to current customer sites but which have automonous control, and nanogrids, such as telecom or Ethernet networks that currently distribute power to many low-power devices. The latter exist currently in the local electrical systems but are not typically considered a part of the traditional electricity supply system. Because all these new entities exhibit some localized control, providing appropriate local heterogeneous PQR becomes a possibility. These new grid concepts enable a more "bottom-up" approach to electricity distribution, in contrast to the historic "top-down" model. The future will almost certainly include a mix of the two, but the balance among them and the interface (if any) between them is unclear.

Construction and Properties of Structure- and Size-controlled Micro/nano-Energetic Materials  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This article presents a comprehensive review of recent progress of research dedicated to structure- and size-controlled micro/nano-energetic materials. The development of the construction strategies for achieving zero-dimensional (0D), one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D), and three-dimensional (3D) micro/nanostructures from energetic molecules is introduced. Also, an overview of the unique properties induced by micro/nanostructures and size effects is provided. Special emphasis is focused on the size-dependent properties that are different from those of the conventional micro-sized energetic materials, such as thermal decomposition, sensitivity, combustion and detonation, and compaction behaviors. A conclusion and our view of the future development of micro/nano-energetic materials and devices are given.

Ferromagnetic Resonance of Micro- and Nano-sized Hexagonal Ferrite Powders at Millimeter Waves  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Complex magnetic permeability and dielectric permittivity of micro- and nano-sized powdered barium (BaFe{sub 12}O{sub 19}) and strontium (SrFe{sub 12}O{sub 19}) hexaferrites have been studied in a broadband millimeter wave frequency range (30-120 GHz). Transmittance measurements have been performed using a free space quasi-optical millimeter wave spectrometer, equipped with a set of high power backward wave oscillators. Real and imaginary parts of dielectric permittivity for both types of micro- and nanoferrites have been calculated using analysis of recorded high precision transmittance spectra. Frequency dependences of the magnetic permeability have been obtained from Schloemann's equation for partially magnetized ferrites. These materials show promise as tunable millimeter wave absorber, based on their size-dependent absorption.

Hierarchical 3D micro-/nano-V2O5 (vanadium pentoxide) spheres as cathode materials for high-energy and high-power lithium ion-batteries  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We facilely fabricate hierarchical 3D microspheres consisting of 2D V2O5 (vanadium pentoxide) nanosheets by a low temperature hydrothermal method and use it to structure hierarchical 3D micro-/nano-LIBs (lithium ion batteries) cathode. This is a template-free and facile method easy for scale-up production of hierarchical 3D micro-/nano-structured V2O5 spheres beneficial for high performance \\{LIBs\\} applications. Such a facile method resulted hierarchical 3D micro-/nano-V2O5 possess many unique features good for LIBs: (1) 2D V2O5 nanosheets facilitate the Li+ diffusions and electron transports; (2) hierarchical 3D micro-/nano-cathode structure built up by V2O5 nanosheet spheres will lead to the close and sufficient contact between electrolytes and activate materials and at the same time will create buffer volume to accommodate the volume change during discharging/charging process; and (3) micro-scale V2O5 spheres are easy to result in high cell packing density beneficial for high power battery. As revealed by the experimental results, the micro-/nano-V2O5 electrode demonstrates high initial discharge and charge capacities with no irreversible loss, high rate capacities at different currents and long-lasting lifespan. The high-energy and high-power performances of the micro-/nano-V2O5 electrode is ascribed to the unique hierarchical micro-/nano-structure merits of V2O5 spheres as abovementioned. In view of the advantages of facile fabrication method and unique features of 3D micro-/nano-V2O5 spheres for high power and high energy LIB battery, it is of great significance to beneficially broaden the applications of high-energy and high-power \\{LIBs\\} with creating novel hierarchical micro-/nano-structured V2O5 cathode materials.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report the fabrication of micro and nano-disks in single layer chemical vapor deposition graphene on glass substrate using femtosecond laser ablation with vortex Bessel beams. The fabricated graphene disks with diameters ranging from 650?nm to 4??m were characterized by spatially resolved micro-Raman spectroscopy. The variation of ablation threshold was investigated as a function of the number of pulses showing an incubation effect. A very high degree of size control of the fabricated graphene disks is enabled using a sequence of femtosecond pulses with different vortex orders.

Micro/nano composites: a simple and safe way to fabricate nanomaterials  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper we detail how the use of nanoparticles supported or embedded in microparticles (nanostructured powders) may overcome many of the problems of nanoparticle manipulation as well as allowing bulk compacts in which nanoparticles appear monodisperse to be obtained. The main advantage of this procedure is that the possibility to use the well developed knowledge about compounding of microparticles to obtain dense composites instead of developing new methods to handling nanoparticles. The obtained nanostructured powders or dense composites can be used for different applications, such as medical implants, cutting tools, optical devices, magnetic powders, etc. Examples of alumina/nano-zirconia, alumina/nano-YAG, zirconia/nano-nickel, alumina/nano-Ag and sepiolite/nano-(Cu, Au, Ag, Ni and Fe) are also reported.

Uniform nano-ripples on the sidewall of silicon carbide micro-hole fabricated by femtosecond laser irradiation and acid etching  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Uniform nano-ripples were observed on the sidewall of micro-holes in silicon carbide fabricated by 800-nm femtosecond laser and chemical selective etching. The morphology of the ripple was analyzed using scanning electronic microscopy. The formation mechanism of the micro-holes was attributed to the chemical reaction of the laser affected zone with mixed solution of hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid. The formation of nano-ripples on the sidewall of the holes could be attributed to the standing wave generated in z direction due to the interference between the incident wave and the reflected wave.

High resolution full-field soft X-ray imaging in the water window is providing new insight on the nano scale of the cement hydration process, which leads to a nano-optimization of cement-based systems. Hard X-ray microtomography images on ice inside cement paste and cracking caused by the alkali-silica reaction (ASR) enables three-dimensional structural identification. The potential of neutron diffraction to determine reactive aggregates by measuring their residual strains and preferred orientation is studied. Results of experiments using these tools will be shown on this paper.

"Stokes' Second Problem in High Frequency Limit. Application to Micro (Nano)- Resonators  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Using kinetic equation in the relaxation approximation (RTA), we investigate a flow generated by an infinite plate oscillating with frequency $\\omega$. Geometrical simplicity of the problem allows a solution in the entire range of dimensionless frequency variation $0\\leq \\omega \\tau\\leq \\infty$, where $\\tau$ is a properly defined relaxation time. A transition from viscoelastic behavior of Newtonian fluid ($\\omega\\tau\\to 0$) to purely elastic dynamics in the limit $\\omega\\tau\\to \\infty$ is discovered. The relation of the derived solutions to microfluidics (high-frequency micro-resonators) is demonstrated on an example of a "plane oscillator .

Micro- and nano-scale hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers by coaxial electrospinning: Preparation and gas sensing  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report the preparation of micro- and nano-scale hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers using a coaxial electrospinning technique and their gas sensing properties in terms of CO. The diameter of hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers can be controlled from 200 nm to several micrometers by changing the viscosity of electrospinning solutions. Lower viscosities produce slim hollow nanofibers. In contrast, fat hollow microfibers are obtained in the case of higher viscosities. A simple mathematical expression is presented to predict the change in diameter of hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers as a function of viscosity. The successful control over the diameter of hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers is expected to bring extensive applications. To test a potential use of hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers in chemical gas sensors, their sensing properties to CO are investigated at room temperature. - Graphical abstract: Microstructures of as-prepared and calcined hollow TiO{sub 2} fibers prepared by the electrospinning technique with a coaxial needle.

AOI [3] High-Temperature Nano-Derived Micro-H2 and - H2S Sensors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The emissions from coal-fired power plants remain a significant concern for air quality. This environmental challenge must be overcome by controlling the emission of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) throughout the entire coal combustion process. One of the processes which could specifically benefit from robust, low cost, and high temperature compatible gas sensors is the coal gasification process which converts coal and/or biomass into syngas. Hydrogen (H2), carbon monoxide (CO) and sulfur compounds make up 33%, 43% and 2% of syngas, respectively. Therefore, development of a high temperature (>500°C) chemical sensor for in-situ monitoring of H2, H2S and SO2 levels during coal gasification is strongly desired. The selective detection of SO2/H2S in the presence of H2, is a formidable task for a sensor designer. In order to ensure effective operation of these chemical sensors, the sensor system must inexpensively function within harsh temperature and chemical environment. Currently available sensing approaches, which are based on gas chromatography, electrochemistry, and IR-spectroscopy, do not satisfy the required cost and performance targets. This work focused on the development microsensors that can be applied to this application. In order to develop the high- temperature compatible microsensor, this work addressed various issues related to sensor stability, selectivity, and miniaturization. In the research project entitled “High-Temperature Nano-Derived Micro-H2 and -H2S Sensors”, the team worked to develop micro-scale, chemical sensors and sensor arrays composed of nano-derived, metal-oxide composite materials to detect gases like H2, SO2, and H2S within high-temperature environments (>500?C). The research was completed in collaboration with NexTech Materials, Ltd. (Lewis Center, Ohio). NexTech assisted in the testing of the sensors in syngas with contaminate levels of H2S. The idea of including nanomaterials as the sensing material within resistive-type chemical sensor platforms was to increase the sensitivity (as shown for room temperature applications). Unfortunately, nanomaterials are not stable at high temperatures due to sintering and coarsening processes that are driven by their high surface to volume ratio. Therefore, new hydrogen and sulfur selective nanomaterial systems with high selectivity and stability properties in the proposed harsh environment were investigated. Different nano-morphologies of zirconate, molybdate, and tungstate compounds were investigated. The fabrication of the microsensors consisted of the deposition of the selective nanomaterial systems over metal based interconnects on an inert substrate. This work utilized the chemi-resistive (resistive- type) microsensor architecture where the chemically and structurally stable, high temperature compatible electrodes were sputtered onto a ceramic substrate. The nanomaterial sensing systems were deposited over the electrodes using a lost mold method patterned by conventional optical lithography. The microsensor configuration with optimized nanomaterial system was tested and compared to a millimeter-size sensor e outcomes of this research will contribute to the economical application of sensor arrays for simultaneous sensing of H2, H2S, and SO2.

Characterization of particulate matter deposited in diesel particulate filters: Visual and analytical approach in macro-, micro- and nano-scales  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Multi-scale analytical investigations of particulate matter (soot and ash) of two loaded diesel particulate filters (DPF) from (a) a truck (DPF1) and (b) a passenger car (DPF2) reveal the following: in DPF1 (without fuel-borne additives), soot aggregates form an approximately 130-270 {mu}m thick, homogeneous porous cake with pronounced orientation. Soot aggregates consist of 15-30 nm large individual particles exhibiting relatively mature internal nanostructures, however, far from being graphite. Ash aggregates largely accumulate at the outlet part of DPF1, while minor amounts are deposited directly on the channel walls all along the filter length. They consist of crystalline phases with individual particles of sizes down to the nanoscale range. Chemically, the ash consists mainly of Mg, S, Ca, Zn and P, elements encountered in lubricating oil additives. In the passenger car DPF2 (with fuel-borne additives), soot aggregates form an approximately 200-500 {mu}m thick, inhomogeneous porous cake consisting of several superposed layers corresponding to different soot generations. The largest part of the soot cake is composed of unburned, oriented soot aggregates left behind despite repeated regenerations, while a small part constitutes a loose layer with randomly oriented aggregates, which was deposited last and has not seen any regeneration. Fe-oxide particles of micro- to nano-scale sizes, originating from the fuel-borne additive, are often dispersed within the part of the soot cake composed of the unburned soot leftovers. The individual soot nanoparticles in DPF2 are approximately 15-40 nm large and generally less mature than in the truck DPF1. The presence of soot leftovers in DPF2 indicates that the addition of fuel-borne material does not fully compensate for the temperatures needed for complete soot removal. Ash in DPF2 is filling up more than half of the filter volume (at the downstream part) and is dominated by Fe-oxide aggregates, due to the Fe-based fuel-borne additive, but otherwise its chemical composition reflects compounds of lubricating oil additives.

Production of ultra-thin nano-scaled graphene platelets from meso-carbon micro-beads  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method of producing nano-scaled graphene platelets (NGPs) having an average thickness no greater than 50 nm, typically less than 2 nm, and, in many cases, no greater than 1 nm. The method comprises (a) intercalating a supply of meso-carbon microbeads (MCMBs) to produce intercalated MCMBs; and (b) exfoliating the intercalated MCMBs at a temperature and a pressure for a sufficient period of time to produce the desired NGPs. Optionally, the exfoliated product may be subjected to a mechanical shearing treatment, such as air milling, air jet milling, ball milling, pressurized fluid milling, rotating-blade grinding, or ultrasonicating. The NGPs are excellent reinforcement fillers for a range of matrix materials to produce nanocomposites. Nano-scaled graphene platelets are much lower-cost alternatives to carbon nano-tubes or carbon nano-fibers.

In situ derivation of sulfur activated TiO{sub 2} nano porous layers through pulse-micro arc oxidation technology  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Highlights: {yields} S-TiO{sub 2} layers were grown by MAO technique under pulse current for the first time. {yields} Effect of growth parameters on chemical composition, topography, and morphology of the layers was studied. {yields} A correlation between photocatalytic performance and growth conditions was proposed. -- Abstract: Micro arc oxidation technique, as a facile and efficient process, was employed to grow sulfur doped titania porous layers. This research sheds light on the photocatalytic performance of the micro arc oxidized S-TiO{sub 2} nano-porous layers fabricated under pulse current. Morphological and topographical studies, performed by SEM and AFM techniques, revealed that increasing the frequency and/or decreasing the duty cycle resulted in formation of finer pores and smoother surfaces. XRD and XPS results showed that the layers consisted of anatase and rutile phases whose fraction was observed to change depending on the synthesis conditions. The highest anatase relative content was obtained at the frequency of 500 Hz and the duty cycle of 5%. Furthermore, photocatalytic activity of the layers was examined by measuring the decomposition rate of methylene blue under both ultraviolet and visible photo irradiations. Maximum photodegradation reaction rate constants over the pulse-grown S-TiO{sub 2} layers were respectively measured as 0.0202 and 0.0110 min{sup -1} for ultraviolet and visible irradiations.

Native and induced triplet nitrogen-vacancy centers in nano- and micro-diamonds: Half-field electron paramagnetic resonance fingerprint  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Multiple frequency electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) study of small (4–25?nm) nanodiamonds obtained by various dynamic synthesis techniques reveals systematic presence in the half-field (HF) region a distinctive doublet fingerprint consisting of resolved g{sub HF1}?=?4.26 and g{sub HF2}?=?4.00 signals. This feature is attributed to “forbidden” ?M{sub S}?=?2 transitions in EPR spectra of two native paramagnetic centers of triplet (S?=?1) origin designated as TR1 and TR2, characterized by zero field splitting values D{sub 1}?=?0.0950?±?0.002?cm{sup ?1} and D{sub 2}?=?0.030?±?0.005?cm{sup ?1}. Nanodiamonds of ?50?nm particle size, obtained by crushing of Ib type nitrogen rich synthetic diamonds, show only HF TR2 signal whereas the same sample undergone high energy (20 MeV) electron irradiation and thermal annealing demonstrates rise of HF TR1 signal. The same HF TR1 signals appear in the process of fabrication of fluorescent nanodiamonds from micron-size synthetic diamond precursors. Results obtained allow unambiguous attribution of the half-field TR1 EPR signals with g{sub HF1}?=?4.26, observed in nano- and micron-diamond powders, to triplet negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy centers. These signals are proposed as reliable and convenient fingerprints in both qualitative and quantitative study of fluorescent nano- and micron-diamonds.

ANALYSIS OF THE PICO DOS DIAS SURVEY HERBIG Ae/Be CANDIDATES  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A large sample of Herbig Ae/Be (HAeBe) candidates, distributed in different Galactic regions south to declination +30 deg., were identified by the Pico dos Dias Survey (a search for young stellar objects based on IRAS colors). Most of the candidates are nearby or associated with star-forming clouds, but several others are considered isolated objects. Aiming to verify the young nature of 93 HAeBe candidates, we searched for additional information that could be useful to confirm if they are pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars or evolved objects, which coincidentally show similar IRAS colors. By adopting a spectral index that is related to the amount of infrared excess and the shape of the spectral energy distribution, we have classified the sample according to three groups, which are analyzed on the basis of (1) circumstellar luminosity; (2) spatial distribution; (3) optical polarization; (4) near-infrared colors; (5) stellar parameters (mass, age, effective temperature); and (5) intensity of emission lines. Our analysis indicates that only 76% of the studied sample, mainly the group with intermediate to low levels of circumstellar emission, can be more confidently considered PMS stars. The nature of the remaining stars, which are in the other group that contains the highest levels of infrared excess, remains to be confirmed. They share the same characteristics of evolved objects, requiring complementary studies in order to correctly classify them. At least seven objects show characteristics typical of post-asymptotic giant branch or proto-planetary nebulae.

In situ growth of ZrO{sub 2}–Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} nano-crystalline ceramic coatings via micro arc oxidation of aluminum substrates  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Highlights: ? ZrO{sub 2}–Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} layers were fabricated by MAO process. ? A formation mechanism was also proposed. ? Effect of voltage and electrolyte composition on layers properties was studied. -- Abstract: Micro arc oxidation technique was employed to grow zirconia–alumina porous layers. Considering XPS, XRD, and EDX results, the layers mainly consisted of ?-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}, ?-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}, monoclinic ZrO{sub 2}, tetragonal ZrO{sub 2}. Fractions of these phases were observed to change based on the fabrication conditions. Zirconia phases formed not only on the surface, but also in the layers depth. Increasing the voltage as well as utilizing thicker electrolytes resulted in higher zirconium concentration. The average crystalline size of the ZrO{sub 2} and the Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} phases was determined as about 57 and 75 nm. AFM studies revealed that the surface roughness increased with voltage and electrolyte concentration. Morphological evaluations, performed by SEM, showed that the microstructure of the layers strongly depended on the synthesis conditions. The layers revealed a porous structure with a pores size of 40–300 nm. Microcracks were observed to appear when the electrolyte concentration and the applied voltage increased. Finally, a formation mechanism was put forward with emphasis on the chemical and the electrochemical foundations.

Novel nano-structured materials: synthesis and application  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Novel nano-structured materials: nano-particle materials like V-SiO2, TiO2 and nano-sized pore materials like Si-MCM-41, Ti-MCM-41 and Al-MCM-41Analogues were successfully synthesised using different methods: precipitation, sol-gel, micro-emulsion and hydrothermal treatment. These obtained nano-structured materials were characterised by using different physico-chemical methods: FE-SEM, TEM, XRD, IR, UV-vis and nitrogen adsorption/desorption (BET). These materials were examined to investigate adsorptive and catalytic properties of the materials. Nano TiO2 exhibited highly photocatalytic activity in the degradation of methyl red (MR). Pure silica form MCM-41 (Si-MCM-41Analogue) was a selective absorbent for VOCs (m-xylene) removal. Ti substituted MCM-41Analogue exhibited highly photocatalytic activity in the degradation of red phenol (RP) while Al substituted MCM-41Analogue showed high catalytic cracking of petroleum residue (Bach Ho oil field – Vietnam). The obtained results are discussed and rationalised.

Future nano- and micro-systems using nanobonding technologies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In this paper, some of the recent achievements in surface-activation-based nanobonding technology are described. This bonding technology allows for the combination of electronic, photonic, fluidic and mechanical functionalities into small form-factor systems for emerging applications in health diagnostics and screening, for example. These nanobonding technologies provide void-free, strong, and nanoscale bonding at room temperature or at low temperatures (<200 °C), and they do not require chemicals, adhesives, or high external pressure. The interfaces of the nanobonded materials in ultra-high vacuum and in air correspond to the covalent bonds, and hydrogen and hydroxyl bonds, respectively, which gives rise to excellent bonding properties. Further, these nanobonding technologies are well-suited for the development of low-cost, high-performance miniaturized systems such as biophotonic imaging systems.

Nano Positioning of Single Atoms in a Micro Cavity  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The coupling of individual atoms to a high-finesse optical cavity is precisely controlled and adjusted using a standing-wave dipole-force trap, a challenge for strong atom-cavity coupling. Ultracold Rubidium atoms are first loaded into potential minima of the dipole trap in the center of the cavity. Then we use the trap as a conveyor belt that we set into motion perpendicular to the cavity axis. This allows us to repetitively move atoms out of and back into the cavity mode with a repositioning precision of 135 nm. This makes possible to either selectively address one atom of a string of atoms by the cavity, or to simultaneously couple two precisely separated atoms to a higher mode of the cavity.

iPP Crystallization: Micro and Nano Fillers Effects  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Since the properties of semicrystalline polymers depend on the morphology studies on effect of fillers on the composites crystallization are of great interest. In this work a micrometric talc and a nanoclay are dispersed in a polypropylene matrix and the influence of two different fillers and temperature on the polymer crystallization behavior in quiescent conditions is assessed by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and rheological characterization through linear viscoelasticity (SAOS) [1]. The DSC tests lead to the half crystallization time depending on overall crystallization rate (i.e. nucleation and growth) whereas by rheological measurement one can deduce also the induction time depending only on nucleation [2].

Proposed solar energy conversion and storage system using a nano-ring in an array waveguide  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We propose the new solar energy conversion and storage system using the array waveguide. It can be used to generate and store solar energy within the nano-array waveguide system. The system consists of micro- and nano-ring resonators incorporating a Mach Zhender Interferometer (MZI) that can be integrated into a single system. The large bandwidth signal, i.e. white light, is generated using a soliton pulse in a Kerr-type nonlinear medium propagating within a micro-ring resonator system. The control light concept is applied using a nano-waveguide incorporating an MZI, whereas the incoherent light is filtered being coherence, which is amplified and stored within the system. The white light can be re-generated using the stored coherent light pulse. Furthermore, the combination of signals is formed by the array waveguide, which is allowed to generate the huge amount of solar energy output.

Large Area Micro-texture Imprinting onto Metallic Sheet via CNC Stamping  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Micro-lens array and micro optical elements require for geometrically accurate registration of micro-patterns onto the oxide glasses. Heat radiation device and heat reservoir units have to equip their own unique micro-patterns with high aspect ratio. Lithography and related processes, or, micro- and nano-imprinting are effective to make these micro-patterns once onto the silicon or silica substrates. Even in those applications, the aspect ratio of micro-patterns is still limited to be shallow. The authors have been developing a new method to fabricate a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coated mother mold-die by plasma oxygen etching and to duplicate the original micro-patterns on the mold-die onto the metallic and plastic sheets. This approach is suitable not only to mass-production of micro-patterned sensors and devices but also to selective nano- and micro-imprinting of various micro-patterns onto the metallic sheets. In the present paper, a micro-cavity pattern with the unit size of 3.5x3.5x4.6 ?m3 is imprinted onto an aluminum sheet with the thickness of 0.08 mm by CNC-stamping with use of the micro-textured DLC-die. This CNC-stamping system is revised to make motion control both in loading and unloading processes for improvement of geometric accuracy and increase of aspect ratio in the micro-cavity pattern. Among several motion-control programs, a pulse-wise motion is employed to duplicate the deeper micro-cavity patterns onto the aluminum sheets.

Study of nano imprinting using soft lithography on Krafty glue and PVDF polymer thin films  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The present work reveals soft lithography strategy based on self assembly and replica molding for carrying out micro and nanofabrication. It provides a convenient, effective and very low cost method for the formation and manufacturing of micro and nano structures. Al-layer of compact disc (sony CD-R) used as a stamp with patterned relief structures to generate patterns and structures with pattern size of 100nm height, 1.7 ?m wide. In literature, PDMS (Polydimethylsiloxane) solution is widely used to get negative copy of the Al-layer. In this work, we have used inexpensive white glue (Polyvinylacetate + water), 15gm (?5) and PVDF (Polyvinylidene difluoride) spin coated films and successfully transferred the nano patterns of Al layer on to white glue and PVDF films.

If the diaphragm is rigid, clock applications are available, and if the diaphragm is resilient, then transducer applications can be achieved. Either the thin support layers or the conductive electrode material can be integral with the diaphragm. In any event, the covers are bonded to form a hermetic seal and the interior volume may be filled with a gas or may be evacuated. In addition, one or both of the covers may include oscillator and interface circuitry for the resonator.

Nucleation at the contact line observed on nano-textured surfaces  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

It has been conjectured that roughness plays a role in surface nucleation, the tendency for freezing to begin preferentially at the liquid-gas interface. Using high speed imaging, we sought evidence for freezing at the contact line on catalyst substrates with imposed characteristic length scales (texture). Length scales consistent with the critical nucleus size and with $\\delta \\sim \\tau / \\sigma$, where $\\tau$ is a relevant line tension and $\\sigma$ is the surface tension, range from nanometers to micron. It is found that nano-scale texture causes a shift in the nucleation of ice in supercooled water to the three-phase contact line, while micro-scale texture does not.

Nano-extrusion: A promising tool for continuous manufacturing of solid nano-formulations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Since more than 40% of today’s drugs have low stability, poor solubility and/or limited ability to cross certain biological barriers, new platform technologies are required to address these challenges. This paper describes a novel continuous process that converts a stabilized aqueous nano-suspension into a solid oral formulation in a single step (i.e., the NANEX process) in order to improve the solubility of a model drug (phenytoin). Phenytoin nano-suspensions were prepared via media milling using different stabilizers. A stable nano-suspension was obtained using Tween® 80 as a stabilizer. The matrix material (Soluplus®) was gravimetrically fed into the hot melt extruder. The suspension was introduced through a side feeding device and mixed with the molten polymer to immediately devolatilize the water in the nano-suspension. Phenytoin nano-crystals were dispersed and embedded in the molten polymer. Investigation of the nano-extrudates via transmission electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy showed that the nano-crystals were embedded de-aggregated in the extrudates. Furthermore, no changes in the crystallinity (due to the mechanical and thermal stress) occurred. The dissolution studies confirmed that the prepared nano-extrudates increased the solubility of nano-crystalline phenytoin, regardless of the polymer. Our work demonstrates that NANEX represents a promising new platform technology in the design of novel drug delivery systems to improve drug performance.

Energetic nano-materials: Opportunities for enhanced performances  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper deals with the contribution of nano-materials to the contemporary pyrotechnics science. The breakthroughs in this domain are illustrated by several examples of energetic nano-materials recently studied in our laboratory. The solidification of energetic phases in a porous matrix (Cr2O3) was used to prepare and to stabilize at nano-scale explosive particles. The thermo-chemical behaviour of RDX nano-particles strongly differs from the one of micron-sized RDX. For instance, the temperature at which the decomposition occurs is significantly lowered and the melting point is removed. The effect of the decomposition of RDX nano-particles on the matrix in which they are trapped was observed for the first time by the atomic force microscopy. The Cr2O3/RDX nano-composite materials were mixed with aluminium nano-particles in order to formulate gas-generating nano-thermites (GGNT). The combustion of GGNT involves a synergy mechanism in which the decomposition of RDX nano-particles fragments the Cr2O3 matrix and primes the thermite reaction. “Classical” nano-thermites were obtained by mixing nano-particles (diameter <100 nm) of metallic oxides (WO3) with a reducing metal (Al). These materials were used to demonstrate that nano-particles (i) significantly lower the ignition delay time and (ii) remarkably increase the combustion rate. Finally, pure RDX nano-particles are prepared by a continuous process of crystallization.

Dynamics of heat transfer between nano systems  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We develop a dynamical theory of heat transfer between two nano systems. In particular, we consider the resonant heat transfer between two nanoparticles due to the coupling of localized surface modes having a finite spectral width. We model the coupled nanosystem by two coupled quantum mechanical oscillators, each interacting with its own heat bath, and obtain a master equation for the dynamics of heat transfer. The damping rates in the master equation are related to the lifetimes of localized plasmons in the nanoparticles. We study the dynamics towards the steady state and establish connection with the standard theory of heat transfer in steady state. For strongly coupled nano particles we predict Rabi oscillations in the mean occupation number of surface plasmons in each nano particle.

Peristaltic pumps work in nano scales  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A design for a pump is suggested which is based on well-known peristaltic pumps. In order to simply describe the operation of the proposed pump, an innovative interpretation of low Reynolds number swimmers is presented and thereafter a similar theoretical model would be suggested to quantify the behavior of the pumps. A coarse-grained molecular dynamic simulation is used to examine the theoretical predictions and measure the efficiency of the pump in nano scales. It is shown that this pump with a modest design is capable of being a good option for transport processes in nano scale.

Plasma Nanoscience: from Nano-Solids in Plasmas to Nano-Plasmas in Solids  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The unique plasma-specific features and physical phenomena in the organization of nanoscale solid-state systems in a broad range of elemental composition, structure, and dimensionality are critically reviewed. These effects lead to the possibility to localize and control energy and matter at nanoscales and to produce self-organized nano-solids with highly unusual and superior properties. A unifying conceptual framework based on the control of production, transport, and self-organization of precursor species is introduced and a variety of plasma-specific non-equilibrium and kinetics-driven phenomena across the many temporal and spatial scales is explained. When the plasma is localized to micrometer and nanometer dimensions, new emergent phenomena arise. The examples range from semiconducting quantum dots and nanowires, chirality control of single-walled carbon nanotubes, ultra-fine manipulation of graphenes, nano-diamond, and organic matter, to nano-plasma effects and nano-plasmas of different states of matter...

Catalytic conversion of glucose to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) using nano-POM/nano-ZrO2/nano-?-Al2O3  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract An efficient process for the conversion of glucose into 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF) was studied in various solvents. Nano-POM/nano-ZrO2/nano-?-Al2O3 catalysts were prepared and characterized by N2 physical adsorption, FTIR, X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopic techniques. The reaction time, reaction temperature and catalyst reuse cycle toward the reaction performance were investigated in detail. An HMF yield of 60.1% was achieved at 190 °C for 4 h.

This “proof-of-principle” experiment, described in the November issue of the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, “opens up a whole new, non-invasive way to study and follow transgenic or genetically engineered strains of mice that serve as animal models for human neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease or psychiatric diseases such as substance abuse, depression, and anxiety disorders,” said Panayotis (Peter) Thanos, lead author of the paper. Studying animal models may help scientists better understand and develop treatments for the human diseases.

Modeling of dual-metal Schottky contacts based silicon micro and nano wire solar cells  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We study solar cell properties of single silicon wires connected at their ends to two dissimilar metals of different work functions. Effects of wire dimensions, the work functions of the metals, and minority carrier lifetimes on short circuit current as well as open circuit voltage are studied. The most efficient photovoltaic behavior is found to occur when one metal makes a Schottky contact with the wire, and the other makes an Ohmic contact. As wire length increases, both short circuit current and open circuit voltage increase before saturation occurs. Depending on the work function difference between the metals and the wire dimensions, the saturation length increases by approximately an order of magnitude with a two order magnitude increase in minority carrier length. However current per surface area exposed to light is found to decrease rapidly with increase in length. The use of a multi-contact interdigitated design for long wires is investigated to increase the photovoltaic response of the devices.

Micro and Nano-structure Development and Multiscale Physics at Sliding Metal Interfaces  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This final report describes research on the response of ductile materials to extreme loading conditions and high strain rates during impact combined with sliding friction. The work has involved a collaboration among two groups at Los Alamos National Laboratory and a tribology research grouup at The Ohio State University. The project involved experimental work and computer simulations at both laboratories and continuum mechanics analysis at OSU, supplemented by testing at AWE, Harwell, UK. Results demonstrated the importance of vorticity and mechanical mixing near the sliding interface in the development of nanocrystalline tribomaterial that is far from equilibrium. The work also revealed that strain rate sensitivity is an important materials property for determining the development of the velocity profile during sliding. As such, it is a property that is key to understanding the evolution of sliding behavior.

We describe a thermodynamic formalism in which a 1st law of thermodynamics, or fundamental relation, is based upon the bulk-entropy, S. Under an ergodic hypothesis, S is shown to be an adiabatic invariant. Expressions for derivatives and thermodynamic relations are derived within the micro-canonical ensemble itself.

An ORNL team is using a novel combination of neutron reflectometry experiments and supercomputer simulations to provide a detailed view of the interactions between organic matter and minerals in soil. The research suggests that relationships among these compounds are governed by simpler principles than previously thought. "It changes the whole way we think about how carbon, nutrients and contaminants interact with soils, which therefore affects fertility, water quality, and the terrestrial carbon cycle," said ORNL's Loukas Petridis.

Electrochemical method of producing nano-scaled graphene platelets  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A method of producing nano-scaled graphene platelets with an average thickness smaller than 30 nm from a layered graphite material. The method comprises (a) forming a carboxylic acid-intercalated graphite compound by an electrochemical reaction; (b) exposing the intercalated graphite compound to a thermal shock to produce exfoliated graphite; and (c) subjecting the exfoliated graphite to a mechanical shearing treatment to produce the nano-scaled graphene platelets. Preferred carboxylic acids are formic acid and acetic acid. The exfoliation step in the instant invention does not involve the evolution of undesirable species, such as NO.sub.x and SO.sub.x, which are common by-products of exfoliating conventional sulfuric or nitric acid-intercalated graphite compounds. The nano-scaled platelets are candidate reinforcement fillers for polymer nanocomposites. Nano-scaled graphene platelets are much lower-cost alternatives to carbon nano-tubes or carbon nano-fibers.

MR imaging techniques for nano-pathophysiology and theranostics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The advent of nanoparticle \\{DDSs\\} (drug delivery systems, nano-DDSs) is opening new pathways to understanding physiology and pathophysiology at the nanometer scale. A nano-DDS can be used to deliver higher local concentrations of drugs to a target region and magnify therapeutic effects. However, interstitial cells or fibrosis in intractable tumors, as occurs in pancreatic or scirrhous stomach cancer, tend to impede nanoparticle delivery. Thus, it is critical to optimize the type and size of nanoparticles to reach the target. High-resolution 3D imaging provides a means of “seeing” the nanoparticle distribution and therapeutic effects. We introduce the concept of “nano-pathophysiological imaging” as a strategy for theranostics. The strategy consists of selecting an appropriate nano-DDS and rapidly evaluating drug effects in vivo to guide the next round of therapy. In this article we classify nano-DDSs by component carrier materials and present an overview of the significance of nano-pathophysiological MRI.

The vortex-penetration field is identical with the multilayer coating, but the lower critical magnetic field is not. Forces acting on a vortex from the boundary of two superconductors play an important role in evaluations of the free energy.

The nano-mechanical morphology of shale  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Shale, the sealing formations in most hydrocarbon reservoirs, is made of highly compacted clay particles of sub-micrometer size, nanometric porosity and different mineralogy. In this paper, we propose and validate a technique to identify the nano-mechanical morphology of such a nanocomposite material. In particular, by means of a massive nanoindentation campaign at two different scales on a large range of shale materials, we show that the highly compacted plate- or sheet-like clay particles have a distinct nano-mechanical morphology with no privileged orientation of the particle-to-particle contact surface, as evidenced by a mechanical percolation threshold of ?0 ? 0.5. Furthermore, the nanoindentation results provide strong evidence that the nano-mechanical elementary building block of shales is transversely isotropic in stiffness, and isotropic and frictionless in strength. These observations lead to a sphere-like mechanical morphology for visibly plate- or sheet-like clay particles. The contact forces between the sphere-like particles activate the intrinsicly anisotropic elastic properties within the clay particles and the cohesive bonds between the clay particles. The mechanical stiffness and strength properties of porous clay scale with the clay packing density toward a unique set of shale-invariant material properties. The determination of mechanical microstructure and invariant material properties are of great importance for the development of predictive microporomechanical models of the stiffness and strength properties of shale. The approach presented here also applies to other chemically and mechanically complex materials exhibiting nanogranular behavior.

Developing Supersonic Impactor and Aerodynamic Lens for Separation and Handling of Nano-Sized Particles  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A computational model for supersonic flows of compressible gases in an aerodynamic lens with several lenses and in a supersonic/hypersonic impactor was developed. Airflow conditions in the aerodynamic lens were analyzed and contour plots for variation of Mach number, velocity magnitude and pressure field in the lens were evaluated. The nano and micro-particle trajectories in the lens and their focusing and transmission efficiencies were evaluated. The computational model was then applied to design of a aerodynamic lens that could generate focus particle beams while operating under atmospheric conditions. The computational model was also applied to airflow condition in the supersonic/hypersonic impactor. Variations of airflow condition and particle trajectories in the impactor were evaluated. The simulation results could provide understanding of the performance of the supersonic and hypersonic impactors that would be helpful for the design of such systems.

Nano-fabricated solid immersion lenses registered to single emitters in diamond  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We describe a technique for fabricating micro- and nano-structures incorporating fluorescent defects in diamond with a positional accuracy in the hundreds of nanometers. Using confocal fluorescence microscopy and focused ion beam (FIB) etching we first locate a suitable defect with respect to registration marks on the diamond surface and then etch a structure using these coordinates. We demonstrate the technique here by etching an 8 micron diameter hemisphere positioned such that a single negatively charged nitrogen-vacancy defect lies at its origin. This type of structure increases the photon collection efficiency by removing refraction and aberration losses at the diamond-air interface. We make a direct comparison of the fluorescence photon count rate before and after fabrication and observe an 8-fold increase due to the presence of the hemisphere.

Brown Received: 22 May 2009 / Accepted: 26 October 2009 # The Author(s) 2009. This article is published with open access at Springerlink.com Abstract In this study, we developed a Phenotype MicroArray(tm) (PM) protocol to profile cellular phenotypes in Zymomonas mobilis, which included a standard set of nearly 2,000 assays for carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur source utilization, nutrient stimulation, pH and osmotic stresses, and chemical sensitivities with 240 inhibitory chemicals. We observed two positive assays for C-source utilization (fructose and glucose) using the PM screen, which uses redox chemistry and cell respiration as a universal reporter to profile growth phenotypes in a high-throughput 96-well plate-based format.

Nano-superconducting quantum interference devices with suspended junctions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Nano-Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (nano-SQUIDs) are usually fabricated from a single layer of either Nb or Al. We describe here a simple method for fabricating suspended nano-bridges in Nb/Al thin-film bilayers. We use these suspended bridges, which act as Josephson weak links, to fabricate nano-SQUIDs which show critical current oscillations at temperatures up to 1.5?K and magnetic flux densities up to over 20?mT. These nano-SQUIDs exhibit flux modulation depths intermediate between all-Al and all-Nb devices, with some of the desirable characteristics of both. The suspended geometry is attractive for magnetic single nanoparticle measurements.

Qubits from tight knots and bent nano-bars  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We propose a novel mechanism for creating a qubit based on a tight knot, that is a nano-quantum wire system so small and so cold as to be quantum coherent with respect to curvature-induced effects. To establish tight knots as legitimate candidates for qubits, we propose an effective curvature-induced potential that produces the two-level system and identify the tunnel coupling between the two local states. We propose also a different design of nano-mechanical qubit based on twisted nano-rods. We describe how both devices can be manipulated. Also we outline possible decoherence channels, detection schemes and experimental setups.

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention provides a method of exfoliating a layered material (e.g., transition metal dichalcogenide) to produce nano-scaled platelets having a thickness smaller than 100 nm, typically smaller than 10 nm. The method comprises (a) dispersing particles of a non-graphite laminar compound in a liquid medium containing therein a surfactant or dispersing agent to obtain a stable suspension or slurry; and (b) exposing the suspension or slurry to ultrasonic waves at an energy level for a sufficient length of time to produce separated nano-scaled platelets. The nano-scaled platelets are candidate reinforcement fillers for polymer nanocomposites.

Instead of the Bernoulli-Euler model describing the rod, two generalized models will be adopted: Eringen non-local model corresponding to nano-rods and viscoelastic model of fractional Kelvin-Voigt type. The analysis shows that for nano-rod, the Herrmann-Smith paradox holds while for viscoelastic rod it does not.

Ultracompact Nano-Mechanical Plasmonic Phase Modulators  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Dielectrics' refractive index limits photonics miniaturization. By coupling light to metal's free electrons, plasmonic devices achieve deeper localization, which scales with the device geometric size. However, when localization approaches the skin depth, energy shifts from the dielectric into the metal, hindering active modulation. Here we propose a nano-electromechanical phase modulation principle exploiting the extraordinarily strong dependence of the phase velocity of metal-insulator-metal(MIM) gap plasmons on dynamically variable gap size. We demonstrate a 23 {\\mu}m long non-resonant modulator having 1.5 {\\pi} rad range with 1.7 dB excess loss at 780 nm. Analysis shows an ultracompact 1 {\\mu}m$^{2}$ footprint {\\pi} rad phase modulator can be realized, more than an order of magnitude smaller than any previously shown. Remarkably, this size reduction is achieved without incurring extra loss, since the nanobeam-plasmon coupling strength increases at a similar rate as the loss. Such small, high density electr...

Micro- and Nanocompartments for Biotechnology  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Compartmentalization is an essential feature in the organization of biological systems and plays a fundamental role in modulating biochemical activity within the cell. An appreciation of the impact that biological compartments have on chemical reactions within the cell and an understanding of the physicochemical phenomena that affect their assembly and function have inspired the development of synthetic compartments. Organic compartments assembled from amphiphillic molecules or derived from biological materials, have formed the basis of early work in the field. However, hybrid and inorganic compartments that capitalize on the optical and catalytic properties of metal and semiconductor materials are emerging. Methods for arraying these micro- and nanocompartment materials in higher order systems promise to enable the scaling and integration of these technologies for industrial and commercial applications.

An experimental study of external reactor vessel cooling strategy on the critical heat flux using the graphene oxide nano-fluid  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

External reactor vessel cooling (ERVC) for in-vessel retention (IVR) of corium as a key severe accident management strategy can be achieved by flooding the reactor cavity during a severe accident. In this accident mitigation strategy, the decay heat removal capability depends on whether the imposed heat flux exceeds critical heat flux (CHF). To provide sufficient cooling for high-power reactors such as APR1400, there have been some R and D efforts to use the reactor vessel with micro-porous coating and nano-fluids boiling-induced coating. The dispersion stability of graphene-oxide nano-fluid in the chemical conditions of flooding water that includes boric acid, lithium hydroxide (LiOH) and tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) was checked in terms of surface charge or zeta potential before the CHF experiments. Results showed that graphene-oxide nano-fluids were very stable under ERVC environment. The critical heat flux (CHF) on the reactor vessel external wall was measured using the small scale two-dimensional slide test section. The radius of the curvature is 0.1 m. The dimension of each part in the facility simulated the APR-1400. The heater was designed to produce the different heat flux. The magnitude of heat flux follows the one of the APR-1400 when the severe accident occurred. All tests were conducted under inlet subcooling 10 K. Graphene-oxide nano-fluids (concentration: 10 -4 V%) enhanced CHF limits up to about 20% at mass flux 50 kg/m{sup 2}s and 100 kg/m{sup 2}s in comparison with the results of the distilled water at same test condition.

Reducing Ion Exchange Particles to Nano-Size Shows Big Potential Reducing Ion Exchange Particles to Nano-Size Shows Big Potential AIKEN, S.C. (January 30, 2012) - Sometimes bigger isn't better. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River National Laboratory have successfully shown that they can replace useful little particles of monosodium titanate (MST) with even tinier nano-sized particles, making them even more useful for a variety of applications. MST is an ion exchange material used to decontaminate radioactive and industrial wastewater solutions, and has been shown to be an effective way to deliver metals into living cells for some types of medical treatment. Typically, MST, and a modified form known as mMST developed by SRNL and Sandia National Laboratories, are in the form of fine powders, spherically-shaped particles about 1 to 10 microns in diameter

Complex Dynamics of Nano-Mechanical Membrane in Cavity Optomechanics  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Theoretical analysis of a suspended nano-mechanical membrane subject to an optical driving field in cavity optomechanics is presented, which is confirmed through numerical simulations. In the presence of an optical field between its mirrors a high finesse nano-mechanical resonator acts as an oscillator driven by radiation pressure force. The periodic nature of the radiation pressure force makes the nano-mechanical membrane in the optomechanical system as kicked harmonic oscillator. Mathematically the physical system displays a stochastic web map that helps to understand several properties of the kicked membrane in classical phase space. We find that our web map is area preserving, and displays quasi-periodic symmetrical structures in phase space which we express as q-fold symmetry. It is shown that under appropriate control of certain parameters, namely the frequency ratio (q) and the kicking strength (K), the dynamics of kicked membrane exhibits chaotic dynamics. We provide the stability analysis by means of...

Rapid Extraction of Dust Impact Tracks from Silica Aerogel by Ultrasonic Micro-blades  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In January 2006, NASA's Stardust Mission will return with its valuable cargo of cometary dust particles, the first brought back to Earth, captured at hypervelocity speeds in silica aerogel collectors. Aerogel, a proven capture medium, is also a candidate for future sample return missions and low-earth orbit (LEO) deployments. Critical to the science return of Stardust and future missions using aerogel is the ability to efficiently extract impacted particles from collector tiles. Researchers will be eager to obtain Stardust samples as quickly as possible, and tools for the rapid extraction of particle impact tracks that require little construction, training, or investment would be an attractive asset. To this end, we have experimented with diamond and steel micro-blades. Applying ultrasonic frequency oscillations to these micro-blades via a piezo-driven holder produces rapid, clean cuts in the aerogel with minimal damage to the surrounding collector tile. With this approach, impact tracks in aerogel fragments with low-roughness cut surfaces have been extracted from aerogel tiles flown on NASA's Orbital Debris Collector Experiment. The smooth surfaces produced during cutting reduce imaging artifacts during analysis by SEM. Some tracks have been dissected to expose the main cavity for eventual isolation of individual impact debris particles and further analysis by techniques such as TEM and nanoSIMS.

Innovation and the micro-enterprise  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) have increasingly been placed under the scholarly microscope, particularly with respect to their capacity for innovation. But how small is small? This paper is concerned with micro-enterprises (those employing fewer than 20 people) which, although they exist in tremendous numbers worldwide, remain largely unexplored by organisational scholars. Using New Zealand micro-enterprises as an illustration, this paper advocates a cognitive approach to developing a greater understanding of innovation in this important class of organisations.

Synthesis of nano WC/Co for tools and dies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Materials for cutting tools and dies must have high hardness, high toughness, and high wear/erosion resistance. Tungsten carbide (WC) has been well known for its exceptional hardness and wear/erosion resistance. However, its low toughness causes brittle fracture. Addition of ductile metals, such as cobalt, can improve its toughness. To obtain the optimum results, WC has to be evenly distributed in a continuous cobalt matrix, which has been a technical challenge at high WC contents (94--97wt%). It is also well established that toughness of ceramic materials can be increased remarkably, without sacrificing hardness, by reducing the grain size. Significant improvement of microhardness has been observed in nano-sized composites over micron-sized materials. In the current investigation, nano-sized WC particles, synthesized by carburizing tungstic acid powders, are first coated with Co compound individually and uniformly by a solution precipitation process. The coated WC powders are then processed in H{sub 2} to obtain individually Co coated nano particles, which are subsequently consolidated by various techniques emphasizing short ({approximately} minutes) exposure times at high temperature. This paper will present some of their experiences and will also highlight some of the basic problems associated with synthesis and consolidation of nano particles.

Hierarchical micro and nano structured, hydrophilic, superhydrophobic and superoleophobic surfaces incorporated in microfluidics, microarrays and lab on chip microsystems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Control of wetting properties at the extremes of wetting states (superhydrophilic and superhydrophobic) is important for many applications, such as self-cleaning, anti-fogging, anti-icing, and antibacterial action. While significant effort has been devoted to develop and characterize such open surfaces for various applications, their incorporation in sensors, microfluidics, and labs on chip, offers new functional devices and systems, and poses different requirements compared to open-area surfaces. In this paper, dedicated to the 30 year anniversary of Microelectronic Engineering, we aim to review the extreme wetting states of surfaces, their fabrication processes focusing on plasma processing technology, and their incorporation into devices and systems. We start with an introduction and terminology for superhydrophilic, superhydrophobic, and superoleophobic surfaces, and continue with a review of the fabrication of such surfaces by plasma processing. We then review how such surfaces are incorporated in micr?devices and microsystems, and their applications. We address (a) Hydrophilic capillary pumps and superhydrophobic valves, (b) Drag reduction in superhydrophobic microchannels and slip length increase, (c) Superhydrophobic surfaces for droplet manipulation, applied to chemical and biological analysis, (d) Biomolecule adsorption control on nanostructured surfaces, and (e) Cell adhesion on such surfaces. Finally, we conclude with perspectives and challenges.

Nano-yarn carbon nanotube fiber based enzymatic glucose biosensor  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A novel brush-like electrode based on carbon nanotube (CNT) nano-yarn fiber has been designed for electrochemical biosensor applications and its efficacy as an enzymatic glucose biosensor demonstrated. The CNT nano-yarn fiber was spun directly from a chemical-vapor-deposition (CVD) gas flow reaction using a mixture of ethanol and acetone as the carbon source and an iron nano-catalyst. The fiber, 28  µm in diameter, was made of bundles of double walled CNTs (DWNTs) concentrically compacted into multiple layers forming a nano-porous network structure. Cyclic voltammetry study revealed a superior electrocatalytic activity for CNT fiber compared to the traditional Pt–Ir coil electrode. The electrode end tip of the CNT fiber was freeze-fractured to obtain a unique brush-like nano-structure resembling a scale-down electrical 'flex', where glucose oxidase (GOx) enzyme was immobilized using glutaraldehyde crosslinking in the presence of bovine serum albumin (BSA). An outer epoxy-polyurethane (EPU) layer was used as semi-permeable membrane. The sensor function was tested against a standard reference electrode. The sensitivities, linear detection range and linearity for detecting glucose for the miniature CNT fiber electrode were better than that reported for a Pt–Ir coil electrode. Thermal annealing of the CNT fiber at 250?°C for 30 min prior to fabrication of the sensor resulted in a 7.5 fold increase in glucose sensitivity. The as-spun CNT fiber based glucose biosensor was shown to be stable for up to 70 days. In addition, gold coating of the electrode connecting end of the CNT fiber resulted in extending the glucose detection limit to 25  µM. To conclude, superior efficiency of CNT fiber for glucose biosensing was demonstrated compared to a traditional Pt–Ir sensor.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Biodegradable composites film based on ?-carrageenan and nano particles as filler was prepared to study the mechanical strength of carrageenan composites. Solution casting technique was used to prepare_this biocomposite. Preparation of composite film and nano filler involve two stages preparation of cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) from kenaf with alkali treatment bleaching and hydrolysis followed by the preparation of two types of nano composite. Tensile test was carried on the composite film based on ?-carrageenan with the variation percentage of CNC and nano clay to obtain the optimum CNC and nano clay loading. After that hybrid nano-biocomposite film based on ?-carrageenan with the variation percentage of CNC/nano clay (OMMT) according to optimum value of composite carrageenan/CNC and composite carrageenan/nano clay film was prepared. The effect of nano filler on the mechanical properties of carrageenan films was examined. ?-carrageenan biocomposite increased with the optimum at 4% CNC and nano clay composition. Additional improvement of tensile strength with hybridization of CNC and nanoclay indicated better mechanical properties.

Method of producing exfoliated graphite, flexible graphite, and nano-scaled graphene platelets  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention provides a method of exfoliating a layered material (e.g., graphite and graphite oxide) to produce nano-scaled platelets having a thickness smaller than 100 nm, typically smaller than 10 nm. The method comprises (a) dispersing particles of graphite, graphite oxide, or a non-graphite laminar compound in a liquid medium containing therein a surfactant or dispersing agent to obtain a stable suspension or slurry; and (b) exposing the suspension or slurry to ultrasonic waves at an energy level for a sufficient length of time to produce separated nano-scaled platelets. The nano-scaled platelets are candidate reinforcement fillers for polymer nanocomposites. Nano-scaled graphene platelets are much lower-cost alternatives to carbon nano-tubes or carbon nano-fibers.

A review of nano-optics in metamaterial hybrid heterostructures  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We present a review for the nonlinear nano-optics in quantum dots doped in a metamaterial heterostructure. The heterostructure is formed by depositing a metamaterial on a dielectric substrate and ensemble of noninteracting quantum dots are doped near the heterostructure interface. It is shown that there is enhancement of the second harmonic generation due to the surface plasmon polaritons field present at the interface.

Nano-pore based characterization of branched polymers  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We propose a novel characterization method of randomly branched polymers based on the geometrical property of such objects in confined spaces. The central idea is that randomly branched polymers exhibit passing/clogging transition across the nano-channel as a function of the channel size. This critical channel size depends on the degree of the branching, whereby allowing the extraction of the branching information of the molecule.

Self-Assembly of Polymer Self-Assembly of Polymer Nano-Elements on Sapphire Self-Assembly of Polymer Nano-Elements on Sapphire Print Wednesday, 25 March 2009 00:00 Self-assembly of polymers promises to vastly improve the properties and manufacturing processes of nanostructured materials, since self-assembly is highly parallel, quite versatile, and easy to implement. Especially promising are novel compounds known as block copolymers, formed by two chemically different polymers that are linked together. Guided patterned arrays have been produced using electron-beam lithographic techniques or nano-imprint lithography, but these methods are painstaking, and they have not yet been able to produce perfect surfaces over large areas. Recently, a group of researchers used faceted surfaces of commercially available sapphire wafers to guide the self-assembly of block copolymer microdomains.

Complex Dynamics of Nano-Mechanical Membrane in Cavity Optomechanics  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Theoretical analysis of a suspended nano-mechanical membrane subject to an optical driving field in cavity optomechanics is presented, which is confirmed through numerical simulations. In the presence of an optical field between its mirrors a high finesse nano-mechanical resonator acts as an oscillator driven by radiation pressure force. The periodic nature of the radiation pressure force makes the nano-mechanical membrane in the optomechanical system as kicked harmonic oscillator. Mathematically the physical system displays a stochastic web map that helps to understand several properties of the kicked membrane in classical phase space. We find that our web map is area preserving, and displays quasi-periodic symmetrical structures in phase space which we express as q-fold symmetry. It is shown that under appropriate control of certain parameters, namely the frequency ratio (q) and the kicking strength (K), the dynamics of kicked membrane exhibits chaotic dynamics. We provide the stability analysis by means of Lyapunov exponent and survival probability.

Modelling nano-particle agglomeration using local interactions  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Nano-particle agglomeration plays an important role in processes such as spray drying and particle flame synthesis. These processes have in common that nano-particles collide at low concentrations and get irreversibly linked at the point of contact due to plastic deformation. In this paper, we investigate several models of irreversible connections, which require only local interactions between the colliding nano-particles and thus allow for scalable simulations. The models investigated here connect the particles upon collision by non-bonded strongly attractive interactions, bonded interactions or by binding agents placed at the point of contact. Models using spherically symmetric interactions form compact agglomerates and are therefore unsuitable to study agglomeration. In contrast, models that are either based on both central and angular potentials (type one) or on binding agents (type two) efficiently prevent restructuring of the agglomerates, and are therefore useful for modeling contacts formed by plastic deformation. Moreover, both types of models allow to control the rigidity and by that the degree of restructuring. The first type of model is computationally more efficient at low fractional dimensions of the aggregates, while the second gives easy access to local shear forces, which is important when breaking of agglomerates is to be considered. As example applications, we reproduce the well-known diffusion-limited agglomeration (DLA) and report results on soot aggregation.

Nano-scale optical and electrical probes of materials and processes.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes the investigations and milestones of the Nano-Scale Optical and Electrical Probes of Materials and Processes Junior/Senior LDRD. The goal of this LDRD was to improve our understanding of radiative and non-radiative mechanisms at the nanometer scale with the aim of increasing LED and solar cell efficiencies. These non-radiative mechanisms were investigated using a unique combination of optical and scanning-probe microscopy methods for surface, materials, and device evaluation. For this research we utilized our new near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM) system to aid in understanding of defect-related emission issues for GaN-based materials. We observed micrometer-scale variations in photoluminescence (PL) intensity for GaN films grown on Cantilever Epitaxy pattern substrates, with lower PL intensity observed in regions with higher dislocation densities. By adding electrical probes to the NSOM system, the photocurrent and surface morphology could be measured concurrently. Using this capability we observed reduced emission in InGaN MQW LEDs near hillock-shaped material defects. In spatially- and spectrally-resolved PL studies, the emission intensity and measured wavelength varied across the wafer, suggesting the possibility of indium segregation within the InGaN quantum wells. Blue-shifting of the InGaN MQW wavelength due to thinning of quantum wells was also observed on top of large-scale ({micro}m) defect structures in GaN. As a direct result of this program, we have expanded the awareness of our new NSOM/multifunctional SPM capability at Sandia and formed several collaborations within Sandia and with NINE Universities. Possible future investigations with these new collaborators might include GaN-based compound semiconductors for green LEDs, nanoscale materials science, and nanostructures, novel application of polymers for OLEDs, and phase imprint lithography for large area 3D nanostructures.

Special Application Thermoelectric Micro Isotope Power Sources  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Promising design concepts for milliwatt (mW) size micro isotope power sources (MIPS) are being sought for use in various space and terrestrial applications, including a multitude of future NASA scientific missions and a range of military applications. To date, the radioisotope power sources (RPS) used on various space and terrestrial programs have provided power levels ranging from one-half to several hundred watts. In recent years, the increased use of smaller spacecraft and planned new scientific space missions by NASA, special terrestrial and military applications suggest the need for lower power, including mW level, radioisotope power sources. These power sources have the potential to enable such applications as long-lived meteorological or seismological stations distributed across planetary surfaces, surface probes, deep space micro-spacecraft and sub-satellites, terrestrial sensors, transmitters, and micro-electromechanical systems. The power requirements are in the range of 1 mW to several hundred mW. The primary technical requirements for space applications are long life, high reliability, high specific power, and high power density, and those for some special military uses are very high power density, specific power, reliability, low radiological induced degradation, and very low radiation leakage. Thermoelectric conversion is of particular interest because of its technological maturity and proven reliability. This paper summarizes the thermoelectric, thermal, and radioisotope heat source designs and presents the corresponding performance for a number of mW size thermoelectric micro isotope power sources.

Platinum and palladium nano-particles supported by graphitic nano-fibers as catalysts for PEM water electrolysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Platinum and palladium nano-particles supported by graphitic nano-fibers (GNFs) have been prepared and used as cathodic electrocatalysts in proton-exchange membrane (PEM) water electrolysis cells for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Raw GNF structures have been synthesized by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Noble metal nano-particles have been deposited at the surface of \\{GNFs\\} using an impregnation-reduction method. Structural properties and electrochemical performances of the GNF-supported catalysts have been determined using TEM analysis and cyclic voltammetry. Current-voltage polarization curves have also been recorded using a PEM cell (7 cm2). The performances obtained with GNF-supported catalysts were found more efficient than those obtained with catalysts supported with conventional carbon black (Vulcan® XC-72). In particular, a reduced electrolysis cell voltage (1.67 instead 1.72 V at 1 A.cm?2 and 90 °C) has been obtained using Pt/GNF cathodes in place of Pt/XC-72 at the cathode and with similar platinum contents (40 wt.%).

Resonancia magnética de perfusión en astrocitomas de alto grado: el volumen sanguíneo cerebral, la altura del pico y el porcentaje de recuperación de intensidad de señal ¿pueden discriminar entre progresión y seudoprogresión?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenObjetivos Estudiar la utilidad de los parámetros de perfusión en RM para identificar la seudoprogresión tumoral en astrocitomas de alto grado. Material y métodos Este estudio retrospectivo de casos y controles comparó el volumen sanguíneo cerebral relativo (VSCr), el porcentaje de recuperación de intensidad de señal relativo (PRSr) y la altura relativa del pico (relative Peak Height [rPH]) en una muestra de 17 casos de astrocitomas anaplásicos y glioblastomas diagnosticados de seudoprogresión (mediante biopsia o control evolutivo), con otra muestra de 17 tumores tratados, histológicamente parecidos, y diagnosticados anatomopatológica o evolutivamente de progresión. Se evaluó la precisión de tales parámetros y su correlación. La significación estadística se estableció con una p < 0,05. Resultados El VSCr, \\{PRSr\\} y rPH fueron estadísticamente distintos entre ambos grupos (p = 0,001). La sensibilidad (S) y especificidad (E) para los puntos de corte 1,37 rPH; 0,9 \\{VSCr\\} y 99% \\{PRSr\\} fueron respectivamente del 88% (S) y 82,2% (E) rPH; 100% (S) y 100% (E) VSCr; y 100% (S) y 70,6% (E) PRSr. Las variables PRSr-rPH (?0,76) y PRSr-VSCr (?0,81) se correlacionaron negativamente. La correlación rPH-VSCr fue alta (0,87). Conclusión La rPH y el \\{VSCr\\} fueron útiles en nuestra muestra para diferenciar los casos de seudoprogresión tumoral de los de progresión verdadera. El \\{PRSr\\} también fue un parámetro muy sensible aunque el solapamiento de valores entre las muestras lo hacen a priori menos útil. AbstractObjectives To study the usefulness of common MRI perfusion parameters for identifying pseudoprogression in high grade astrocytomas. Material and methods This retrospective case-control study compared the relative cerebral blood volume (rCBV), the relative percentage of signal intensity recovery (rPSR), and the relative peak height (rPH) recorded in a sample of 17 cases of anaplastic astrocytomas and gliomas considered to be undergoing pseudoprogression by biopsy or follow-up with those recorded in a sample of histologically similar tumors that were treated and considered to be undergoing progression by histologic study or follow-up. We evaluated the accuracy of these parameters and the correlations among them. Statistical significance was set at P<.05. Results The rCBV, rPSR, and rPH were significantly different between the two groups (P=.001). The cutoff values rPH=1.37, rCBV=0.9, and rPSR=99% yielded sensitivity (S)=88% and specificity (Sp)=82.2% for rPH, S=100% and Sp=100% for rCBV, and S=100% and Sp=70.6% for rPSR, respectively. We found negative correlations between rPRS and rPH (?0.76) and between rPRS and rCBV (?0.81) and a high positive correlation between rPH and rCBV (0.87). Conclusion The variables rPH and rCBV were useful for differentiating between pseudoprogression and true progression in our sample. The variable rPRS was also very sensitive, although the overlap in the values between samples make it less useful a priori.
