Reduced Graphene Oxide Nanomaterial Coated Cotton fabric as a heating device and method therefore

The invention relates to a heating device comprising a fabric integrated with reduced graphene oxide nanosheets films and method of fabrication thereof. The RGO coated cotton cloth based electro thermal film (figure 3(a)) showed a good heating performance. When 40V is applied, the saturated temperature were attained 52º C, 56º C and 62º C for 1 min, 5 min and 5 min under vacuum respectively. It has been observed that, the power drawn by the device at 40 V was 476 mW.

Novel wafer scale technique for exact placement of two arrays of Nanoparticles

A novel wafer scale technique for exact placement of two arrays of nanoparticles, with graphene as a spacer, has been developed. Placing two nanoparticles at such proximity gives rise to an extremely high field concentration in the gap between the two particles, which has enabled an extremely large near field enhancement, (E/EO) ~ 103. This has resulted in a huge photovoltage (in the order of A/W) and enhancement of the Raman signal (approx.

Simple and low-cost liquid phase epitaxy (LPE) technique to grow high quality epitaxial films of germanium on silicon (100)

Germanium has significantly high electron and hole mobility compared to silicon, which makes it a promising material for CMOS technology. Ge is used in photonics both as an absorber in near IR as well as a waveguide for mid-IR. Ge is also lattice matched to III-V semiconductors, so good quality III-V films can be grown on Ge substrates.

Bright-field Nanoscopy

Optical wide-field imaging of sub-diffraction limit nanostructures is of interest in a wide array of applications. In applications where the nanostructures to be visualized are well isolated, a high enough optical contrast is sufficient to detect these. We developed a technique called the Bright-field Nanoscopy which allowed the visualisation of Graphene Grain Boundaries (GGBs), nanoparticles, single isolated Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs).

The present invention is in relation to fabricated Graphene Oxide (GO) – Platinum (Pt) nanocomposite films for temperature sensor applications based on the principle of negative temperature coefficient (NTC) resistive element. The invention also discloses a process of synthesis of the nanocomposite and method of fabrication of the nanocomposite film on a flexible substrate.

Investigations of Two-Dimensional Electron Systems (2DES)

Investigations of two-dimensional electron systems (2DES) have been achieved with two model experimental systems, covering two distinct, non-overlapping regimes of the 2DES phase diagram, namely the quantum liquid phase in semiconducting heterostructures and the classical phases observed in electrons confined above the surface of liquid helium.

Novel Technique to achieve Independent motion of Magnetic Micro/Nanoswimmers

We have developed a novel technique to achieve independent motion of magnetic micro/nanoswimmers. The method uses oscillating magnetic field to actuate micron sized helical structures that show reciprocal motion with enhanced diffusivity [1]. The motile nanostructures can be used as a model system to study active matter.

MEMS pressure transducers

Pressure sensors comprise about 60% of the MEMS market. Among the various types of pressure sensors, piezoresistive pressure sensors are easy to design to suit a wide range of pressures. Our pressure transducers are miniature piezoresistive based sensors fabricated using silicon micromachining techniques, which enable great precision in realizing the diaphragm. The diaphragm acts as the sensing element and the piezoresistors serve as transducers.
