Compositionally Graded Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors
(Springer Nature, 2017-09-27)
Multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC) are widely used in consumer electronics. Here, we provide a transformative method for achieving high dielectric response and tunability over a wide temperature range through design of ...
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, ...
Giant piezoelectric voltage coefficient in grain-oriented modified PbTiO3 material
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-11)
A rapid surge in the research on piezoelectric sensors is occurring with the arrival of the Internet of Things. Single-phase oxide piezoelectric materials with giant piezoelectric voltage coefficient (g, induced voltage ...
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 ...
Discovery and ramifications of incidental Magnéli phase generation and release from industrial coal-burning
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-01-12)
Coal, as one of the most economic and abundant energy sources, remains the leading fuel for producing electricity worldwide. Yet, burning coal produces more global warming CO2 relative to all other fossil fuels, and it is ...
3D printed graphene-based self-powered strain sensors for smart tires in autonomous vehicles
The transition of autonomous vehicles into fleets requires an advanced control system design that relies on continuous feedback from the tires. Smart tires enable continuous monitoring of dynamic parameters by combining ...
