NRN062 What the Deep Sea Can Tell Us About Microwaves
Background microwaves are ubiquitous in our modern, urban environment. The thermal effects of these electromagnetic fields on biological matter have been well-researched. However, possible non-thermal effects remain a controversial subject. Our work utilizes the bioluminescent marine organism, Vibrio fischeri, as a novel biosensor to probe the effects of low power, pulsed magnetic and electric 2.45 GHz microwave fields. The ultimate aim of this project is to microscopically image these biological effects in real-time using custom-made luminophores in mammalian cells, to elucidate the mode of action of microwaves at the molecular level.
NRN039 In-Situ Synthesis of Magnetic Iron-Oxide Nanoparticle-Nanofibre Composites Using Electrospinning
We demonstrate a facile, one-step process to form polymer scaffolds composed of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (MNPs) contained within electrospun nano- and micro-fibres of two biocompatible polymers, Poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and Poly(vinyl pyrrolidone) (PVP).
NRN045 External Optical Feedback Effects in Semiconductor Nanolasers
The response of nanolasers subject to external optical feedback has been analyzed. Calculations have been performed using rate equations, which include the Purcell cavity-enhanced spontaneous emission factor F and the spontaneous emission coupling factor β.
NRN152 Scalable Thermoelectrics with Photovoltaics, SUNTRAP
American Institute of Physics (AIP)
This paper presents the design, manufacture and electrical test of a novel integrated III:V low concentrator photovoltaic and thermoelectric device for enhanced solar energy harvesting efficiency. The PCB-based platform is a highly reliable means of controlling CPV cell operational temperature under a range of irradiance conditions. The design enables reproducible data acquisition from CPV solar cells whilst minimizing transient time for solid state cooling capability.
NRN094 One-step Deposition by Slot-Die Coating of Mixed Lead Halide Perovskite for Photovoltaic Applications
In this work we demonstrate the suitability of a one-step slot-die coating method for the deposition of lead halide perovskite layers, in particular for infiltration into a mesoporous titania scaffold.
