Bulk-Size Transparent Gadolinium Oxide-Polymer Nanocomposites for Gamma Ray Scintillation

, , , , , , , , , , ,
Heavy element loaded polymer composites have long been proposed to detect high energy X- and -rays upon scintillation. The previously reported bulk composite scintillators have achieved limited success because of the diminished light output resulting [...]

Improvement of electric energy density in PVDF terpolymer nanocomposites and blends

, , , , , , ,
Large enhancement in the electric energy density and electric displacement level were found in nanocomposites of poly(vinylidene fluoride-trifluoroethylene-chlorofluoroethylene) (PVDF-TrFE-CFE) relaxor ferroelectric polymer/ZrO2 nanoparticles. Through the interface effect the presence of the nanoparticles (with only 1.6 [...]

An A Priori Hysteresis Modeling Methodology for Improved Efficiency and Model Accuracy in Advanced PD SOI Technologies

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Exploiting the asymmetric nature of interactions among hysteresis, “nonFET”, and DC characteristics, an a priori hysteresis modeling methodology has been proposed as an essential part of an improved model extraction flow for advanced PD SOI [...]
