    A thin film of porphyrin deposited by the layer-by-layer method is employed as the active element for an optical sensor. The usefulness of this film technology and the resulting nanoscale matrix for the detection of ...
  • Javaid, N.; Stephenson, David J.; Vitanov, V. I. (2010-09-16)
    The aim of this work was to achieve the surface finish of 10nm on a 40mm diameter disc of chrome-molybdenum-vanadium alloyed steel (H13) by using precision grinding process with electrolytic in-process dressing. The ...
  • Zhang, Juankun; Zhang, Weiliang; Dong, Shanmu; Turner, Anthony P. F.; Fan, Qingjie; Jia, Shiru (Taylor and Francis, 2008-01)
    Nano-porous silicon (PS) offers a potential platform for biosensors with benefits both in terms of light emission and the large functional surface area. A light emitting PS chip with a stable and functional surface was ...
  • Sachse, Sophia (Cranfield University, 2012-10)
    During the past decade, polymer nanocomposites have emerged as a novel and rapidly developing class of materials and attracted considerable investment in research and development worldwide. Driven by the certainty that ...
  • Libor, Zsuzsanna; Zhang, Qi; Israel, C.; Mathur, N. D. (Maney Publishing, 2009-11)
    In recent years, coating processes with nanoparticles have been investigated for the development of nanostructured materials. In this work we report the core-shell structures of micro-composites of SiO2/Ni, SiO2/Fe3O4, and ...
