Structural foams have a variety of applications, such as cushioning, packaging, and construction. Compressive strength and compressibility are important factors to determine the performance and application of foams. However, since these factors are of opposing nature there is a need for structural foam with high compressive strength, compressibility, and resilience. This…
Conventional laterla trench-based components, such as trench lateral transistors, typically have a substantial undesirable capacitance related to the overlap of gate and drain electrodes in the same trench. Particularly, many trench-type lateral transistors are fabricated with the gate and the drain formed in the same trench, typically separated by an oxide layer. The overlap…
The unique properties of carbon nanotubes (CNT), more specifically, single walled carbone nanotubes (SWNT), have made them excellent candidates for applications in bio-sensing, fuel cells, and nanofabrication. Considerable research effort has been devoted to development of methods to achieve stable suspensions of highly dispersed CNTs. However, progress has been impeded by two…
An edge illuminated photovoltaic device is a photovoltaic device in which light illuminates a p-n junction through the edge of the device (i.e. in the direction substantially non-parallel) to the direction defined by the devices electrical contacts to the outer surface. While these devices are advantageous, they are yet to achieve the high efficiency and low cost required for…
The use and development of carbon nanotubes has expanded, as these materials have shown to be valuable innext generation industries including the fields of electronicsand chemistry. The further development of carbon nanotubetechnology allows organized structures or intertwined randomly oriented bundles of carbon nanotubes to be formed. Techniques have been developed to…
Ambulatory assist devices, such as walkers, typically reduce stress and strain on the musculoskeletal system, allowing the user to move about with greater ease. However, current ambulatory assisting devices fail to provide assistance for a relatively common bodily motion: transitioning from a sitting position to a standing position. This invention is directed to a walker…
Present microelectronic photoimaging applications employ onium salts for deep UV (I-line, 365 nm) photolithography. Since most onium salts do not absorb at this wavelength, photosensitizers are commonly employed. Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons are the most efficient known examples of electron-transfer photosensitizers for onium salts. However, they have serious drawbacks…
The use of fillers in both thermoplastic and thermoset polymers has been common. The practice of filling polymers is motivated both by cost reduction and by the need to obtain altered or enhanced properties. Nanostructured dielectric materials have demonstrated advantages over micro-filled polymer dielectrics. However, this is a need to improve these nanocomposites such that…
Alignment and positioning equipment are important as they are required in nearly all research and manufacturing processes. Conventionally, translation stages are used extensively in the industry for alignment and positioning. Translation stages provide a motion or a translation when a force is applied onto them. However, existing translation stages are affected by high…
Many proteins lose enzymatic activity in harsh environments, such as non-optimal pH or temperature, or exposure to organic solvents. This invention is based on the discovery that by attaching certain proteins to single-walled carbon nanotubes ("SWNT"), protein function under such harsh conditions can be dramatically improved. Two enzymes which were stabilized in this…
