Abstract [en]

Realization of a simple integrated and low-cost intensity modulation/direct detection-based humidity and vapor detection system utilizing zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods as the active material is demonstrated. The sensing device comprises of ZnO nanorods optimally grown on a glass substrate and mounted on 3D printed platform for the alignment with a green light-emitting diode setup for an edge excitation. An Arduino platform was used for the signal processing of the detection of the transmitted light. Both forward and backward scattering are affected due to light leakage while propagating through the glass substrate which are further attenuated in the presence of humidity. In this paper, backward scattering was found to be dominant, and thus, with increasing humidity, a reduction in the transmitted light was monitored. When the sensor was tested in a humidity controlled environment, it was found that the output voltage drops by approximately 750 mV upon changing the relative humidity (RH) level from 35% to 90% in a non-linear fashion. The average sensitivity of the sensor was observed to be -12 mV/% throughout the tested RH levels. Sensitivity was found to he higher at -24.6 mV/% for RH's beyond 70%. An average response time of 3.8 s was obtained for RH levels of 85% with respect to the standard ambient humidity conditions (RH 50%), which showed a quicker recovery time of 2.2 s. The proposed sensor device provides numerous advantages, including low-cost production, simplicity in design, ease of use, and stability during handling.

Abstract [en]

Silver-zinc oxide nanorods (Ag-ZnO NRs) and gold-zinc oxide nanorods (Au-ZnO NRs) plasmonic photocatalysts were fabricated by the deposition of Ag and Au nanoparticles on ZnO NRs. The photocatalysts were studied with electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), UV-vis optical absorption and photoluminescence spectroscopy. The effect of type of metals on the ZnO surface on its photocatalytic activity under ultra violet (UV) as well as visible light excitation are investigated and their contribution towards enhanced photo-generated charge separation in terms of the type of junction (Ohmic or Schottky) the metal forms with the semiconductor are explained.

Abstract [en]

The performance of a capacitive deionization (CDI) device is governed by complex relations between the electrode material properties, fluid velocity and fluid distribution within the device. In order to maximize fluid (water) interaction with the electrodes, the relationships between fluid flow and electrode material properties are explored here to develop novel CDI architectures which reduce the pressure drop, improve surface utilization factor and improve the electrode salt adsorption capacity. Using activated carbon cloth (ACC) as the electrode material, the pressure drop across the CDI device is quantified with respect to flow scheme (flow-between and flow-through CDI modes) used. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) models are developed to study and optimize the fluid velocity and distribution in order to minimize the device fluid pressure losses. The model predictions are verified by constructing the conceptualized CDI devices and correlating the theoretical and experimentally obtained pressure drops, salt adsorption capacities and fluid flow parameters. The results indicate that up to 60% reduction in pressure drop and similar to 35% increase in specific salt adsorption capacity can be achieved by simple changes to the input-output port architecture of the CDI units. The results describe a method to considerably lower energy consumption in commercial CDI devices.

Abstract [en]

There is a growing demand for new heterogeneous catalysts for cost-effective catalysis. Currently, the hysteresis phenomenon during low-temperature CO oxidation is an important topic in heterogeneous catalysis. Hysteresis provides important information about fluctuating reaction conditions that affect the regeneration of active sites and indicate the restoration of catalyst activity. Understanding its dynamic behavior, such as hysteresis and self-sustained kinetic oscillations, during CO oxidation, is crucial for the development of cost-effective, stable and long-lasting catalysts. Hysteresis during CO oxidation has a direct influence on many industrial processes and its understanding can be beneficial to a broad range of applications, including long-life CO2 lasers, gas masks, catalytic converters, sensors, indoor air quality, etc. This review considers the most recent reported advancements in the field of hysteresis behavior during CO oxidation which shed light on the origin of this phenomenon and the parameters that influence the type, shape, and width of the conversion of the hysteresis curves.

Abstract [en]

Capacitive deionization (CDI) is an upcoming technique that can replace existing processes for removing and recuperating metal ions from dilute industrial waste waters. CDI removes ions via electrosorption on to its electrode surfaces, the efficiency of which is a function of CDI electrode properties that progressively change during continued operation. As such a need exists to develop a model to predict CDI performance over elongated periods which is independent of electrode properties and has negligible error values. By applying a first order non-linear dynamic model (FONDM) with inputs independent of the electrode characteristics, we propose a universal model that can predict CDI ion adsorption capacity with changes in applied potential, flow rate and electrolyte temperature to within 5% of the experimentally obtained results. The model was verified using activated carbon cloth (ACC) as a test electrode and aqueous sodium chloride solution as electrolyte, with a good prediction for ion electrosorption efficiency and time dependent electrosorption dynamics. The simplicity of the model makes it easy to adapt for various applications and in the development of intelligent control systems for CDI units in practical settings.

Abstract [en]

Efficiency of nanocomposite zinc oxide-chitosan antimicrobial polyethylene packaging films for the preservation of quality of vegetables was studied using okra Abelmoschus esculentus. Low density polyethylene films (LDPE) coated with chitosan-ZnO nanocomposites were used for packaging of okra samples stored at room temperature (25 degrees C). Compared to the control sample (no coating), the total bacterial concentrations in the case of chitosan and nanocomposite coatings were reduced by 53% and 63%, respectively. The nanocomposite coating showed a 2-fold reduction in total fungal concentrations in comparison to the chitosan treated samples. Results demonstrate the effectiveness of the nanocomposite coatings for the reduction of fungal and bacterial growth in the okra samples after 12 storage days. The nanocomposite coatings did not affect the quality attributes of the okra, such as pH, total soluble solids, moisture content, and weight loss. This work demonstrates that the chitosan-ZnO nanocomposite coatings not only maintains the quality of the packed okra but also retards microbial and fungal growth. Thus, chitosan-ZnO nanocomposite coating can be used as a potential coating material for active food packaging applications.

Abstract [en]

The magnitude and distribution of the electric field between two conducting electrodes of a capacitive deionization (CDI) device plays an important role in governing the desalting capacity. A dielectric coating on these electrodes can polarize under an applied potential to modulate the net electric field and hence the salt adsorption capacity of the device. Using finite element models, we show the extent and nature of electric field modulation, associated with changes in the size, thickness, and permittivity of commonly used nanostructured dielectric coatings such as zinc oxide (ZnO) and titanium dioxide (TiO2). Experimental data pertaining to the simulation are obtained by coating activated carbon cloth (ACC) with nanoparticles of ZnO and TiO2 and using them as electrodes in a CDI device. The dielectric-coated electrodes displayed faster desalting kinetics of 1.7 and 1.55 mg g(-1) min(-1) and higher unsaturated specific salt adsorption capacities of 5.72 and 5.3 mg g(-1) for ZnO and TiO2, respectively. In contrast, uncoated ACC had a salt adsorption rate and capacity of 1.05 mg g(-1) min(-1) and 3.95 mg g(-1), respectively. The desalting data is analyzed with respect to the electrical parameters of the electrodes extracted from cyclic voltammetry and impedance measurements. Additionally, the obtained results are correlated with the simulation data to ascertain the governing principles for the changes observed and advances that can be achieved through dielectric-based electrode modifications for enhancing the CDI device performance.

Abstract [en]

An experimental study of the dynamic range maximization with Zinc Oxide (ZnO) nanorods coated glass substrates for humidity and vapor sensing is reported. Growth time of the nanorods and the length of the coated segments were controlled to study the differences between a reference environmental condition (normal humidity or dry condition) and water vapor concentrations. In order to achieve long dynamic range of detection with respect to nanorods coverage, several substrates with triangular patterns of ZnO nanostructures were fabricated by selective hydrothermal growth over different durations of time (5 h, 10 h and 15 h). It was found that maximum dynamic range for the humidity sensing occurs for the combination parameters of normalized length (Z) of 0.23 and normalized scattering coefficient (zeta) of 0.3. A reduction in transmittance by 38% at humidity levels of 80% with reference point as 50% humidity was observed. The results could be correlated to a first order approximation model that assumes uniform growth and the optimum operating conditions for humidity sensing device. This study provides an option to correlate ZnO growth conditions for different vapor sensing applications which can set a platform for compact sensors where modulation of light intensity is followed. rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorods (NRs) oriented along the crystallographic [001] axis are grown by the hydrothermal method on glass substrates. The ZnO NRs exhibit a broadband (1-2 mu m) near-IR absorption ascribed to the singly charged zinc vacancy V-z(n)-1. The saturable absorption of the ZnO NRs is studied at approximate to 1 mu m under picosecond excitation, revealing a low saturation intensity, approximate to 10 kW/cm(2), and high fraction of the saturable losses. The ZnO NRs are applied as saturable absorbers in diode-pumped Yb (approximate to 1.03 mu m) and Tm (approximate to 1.94 mu m) lasers generating nanosecond pulses. The ZnO NRs grown on various optical surfaces are promising broadband saturable absorbers for nanosecond near-IR lasers in bulk and waveguide geometries.

Abstract [en]

Diagnosis of osteomyelitis presents a formidable challenge. Lack of pathognomonic clinical sign(s) and diagnostic tests that can diagnose osteomyelitis at an early stage contribute to this difficulty. If the diagnosis is not made early, the disease becomes very difficult to eradicate and can lead to limb threatening and potentially life-threatening complications. Staphylococcus aureus is the most common organism causing osteomyelitis. Raman Spectroscopy provides information about molecular vibration that could potentially be harnessed as a spectral signature for cellular changes in specific pathologic conditions. In this study we describe a technique using Raman spectroscopy that could potentially be used to diagnose staphylococcal osteomyelitis. Human bone samples were co-cultured with Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) and the effects of bacterial growth on bone quality were then monitored using Raman spectroscopy. A major drop in the bone mineral quality and crystallinity was observed in the infected bones compared to the controls. S. aureus infection was also found to alter the collagen cross-linking. Our study shows that specific spectral signatures are present for the cause as well as the effect of staphylococcal osteomyelitis, opening the possibility of developing a useful diagnostic modality for early and rapid diagnosis of this condition.
