Biomimetic and Live Medusae Reveal the Mechanistic Advantages of a Flexible Bell Margin
Flexible bell margins are characteristic components of rowing medusan morphologies and are expected to contribute towards their high propulsive efficiency. However, the mechanistic basis of thrust augmentation by flexible ...
Broadband/Wideband Magnetoelectric Response
A broadband/wideband magnetoelectric (ME) composite offers new opportunities for sensing wide ranges of both DC and AC magnetic fields. The broadband/wideband behavior is characterized by flat ME response over a given AC ...
Harvesting Energy from the Counterbalancing (Weaving) Movement in Bicycle Riding
Bicycles are known to be rich source of kinetic energy, some of which is available for harvesting during speedy and balanced maneuvers by the user. A conventional dynamo attached to the rim can generate a large amount of ...
Synthesis and Optical Characterization of Mg1-xNixO Nanostructures
An attempt has been made here to synthesize nano-powders via sol-gel process. These powders are shown to possess an f.c.c. (NaCl-type) structure with a typical lattice parameter of Å for when decomposition of dried ...
