Foam-based optical absorber for high-power laser radiometry
(Optical Society of America, 2007-12-01)
We report damage threshold measurements of novel absorbers comprised of either liquid-cooled silicon carbide or vitreous carbon foams. The measurements demonstrate damage thresholds up to 1.6 x 104 W/cm(2) at an incident ...
Combinatory Finite Element and Artificial Neural Network Model for Predicting Performance of Thermoelectric Generator
Thermoelectric generators (TEGs) are rapidly becoming the mainstream technology for converting thermal energy into electrical energy. The rise in the continuous deployment of TEGs is related to advancements in materials, ...
Intersections, Creativity, and Black Swans
(Institute for Critical Technology and Applied Science (ICTAS), Virginia Tech, 2013-05-30)
High-performance carbon nanotube coatings for high-power laser radiometry
(American Institute of Physics, 2008-01-01)
Radiometry for the next generation of high-efficiency, high-power industrial lasers requires thermal management at optical power levels exceeding 10 kW. Laser damage and thermal transport present fundamental challenges for ...
Large piezoresistivity phenomenon in SiCN-(La,Sr)MnO3 composites
(AIP Publishing, 2009-02-01)
We present the results on SiCN-(La,Sr)MnO3 (LSMO) composites correlating the observed large piezoresistance behavior with the microstructural features and defect chemistry. Scanning electron microscopy characterization ...
Towards the development of latent heat storage electrodes for electroporation-based therapies
(American Institute of Physics, 2012-08-22)
Phase change materials (PCMs) capable of storing a large amount of heat upon transitioning from the solid-to-liquid state have been widely used in the electronics and construction industries for mitigating temperature ...
