  1. 1. Multiscale Analysis of Multifunctional Composites

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Ammara Dil; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Conventional polymer composites are highly demanding due to their high strength and stiffness, low weight, easy processing and corrosion resistance. However, their weak out of plane properties restricts their use in high performance applications, such as aerospace, military and automotive components. READ MORE

  2. 2. Thermoset biopolymer reinforced with carbon-nanotubes

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Morteza Esmaeili; [2019]
    Keywords : biopolymers; bio-composites; glycerol lactic acid; carbon nanotube; reinforcement; thermoset; dispersion;

    Abstract : Compared to conventional fibers, carbon nanotubes possess several significant properties, which make them as an excellent alternative reinforcement in multi-functional material industry. In this study, the possibility of dispersion of the multi-wall carbon nanotube (MWCNTs) in a thermoset bio-based resin (synthesized based on end-functionalized glycerol-lactic acid oligomers, GLA, at university of Borås) was investigated.

  3. 3. Field-effect transistor based biosensing of glucose using carbon nanotubes and monolayer MoS2

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Molekyl- och kondenserade materiens fysik

    Author : Nathan Ullberg; [2019]
    Keywords : field-effect transistor; biosensor; glucose; carbon nanotube; MoS2; 1D materials; 2D materials; nanotechnology; FET;

    Abstract : As part of the EU SmartVista project to develop a multi-modal wearable sensor for health diagnostics, field-effect transistor (FET) based biosensors were explored, with glucose as the analyte, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) or monolayer MoS2 as the semiconducting sensing layer.  Numerous arrays of CNT-FETs and MoS2-FETs were fabricated by photolithographic methods and packaged as integrated circuits.

  4. 4. Patterned Nanocomposite of Carbon Nanotube/Polymer

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Saeed Motaragheb Jafarpour; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are carbon based nanostructures with extraordinary electronical and mechanical properties. They are used in a wide range of applications, usually embedded in polymer as fillers to form polymer based nanocomposites, in order to affect the electronic behavior of the polymer matrix.

  5. 5. Carbon Nanotube Raman Spectra Calculations using Density Functional Theory

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik; Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Johan Jirlén; Emil Kauppi; [2017]
    Keywords : Density Functional Theory; DFT; Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes; SWCNTs; Raman; Spectra; VASP;

    Abstract : Utilizing density functional theory (DFT) the Vienna Ab initio Simulation Package (VASP) was used to calculate the Raman spectra for five single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with chiralities (4,4), (6,6), (8,0), (12,0) and (7,1). The radial breathing mode (RBM), when compared with experimental frequencies, shows good correlation. READ MORE
