In this paper, we simulated the adsorption of fluorine on the surface of mono- and polycrystalline graphene from F- and FHF- ions associates with water molecules. As model objects, we used graphens without grain boundaries, [...]
This research is concerned with studying and understanding the thermal and mechanical behavior of PTFE. Such understanding is critical to predicting PTFE behavior and allowing bottom up design of improved polymers for specific applications. While [...]
Results of accurate quantum-mechanical calculations for alkali halide nanoclusters (LiF, NaCl, KBr), revealed a variety of new morphologies - single and multiple tubes, double-sheets, honeycomb, sodalitic cages- quite distinct from the cubic macro crystal structure. [...]

As predicted by Slonczewski and Berger, a spin-polarized current can exert a torque on the magnetization of a ferromagnetic layer leading to precession. Then the Giant Magnetoresistance Effect (GMR) can convert the magnetic precession into [...]
In this talk we will discuss two uses of nanofluids for heat transfer: for cooling purposes and for absorbing solar thermal energy. In the first case we show that a popular theoretical model, which has [...]
Fuel cells have been drawing increasing attention due to their high efficiency and harmless gas emission. Hydrogen is the most widely used fuel, but its safe storage and transportation is one of the main issues. [...]
The emerging of nanotechnology has increasingly gained expansions and applications in various materials science research and development. However, the exposure to nanoparticles and engineered nanomaterials can lead to adverse biological effects because the small sizes [...]
Biosensors that can detect minute quantities of important redox molecules in the human body are increasingly gaining attention nowadays. Currently, electrophoresis,fluorescence and amperometric detection methods are the common techniques used for such purpose. The previous [...]
SOI-Multifin-FET shows excellent transistor characteristics, ideal sub-threshold swing, low drain induced barrier lowering (DIBL) without pocket implantation and negligible body bias dependency. In this work, we analyzed this combination by a three-dimensional numerical device simulator [...]
