The self-stimulated capillary jet
(American Physical Society, 2021-01)
Inspired by a Savart’s pioneering work, we study the self-stimulated dynamics of a capillary jet. The feedback loop is realised by extracting surface perturbations from a section of the jet itself via a laser–photodiode ...
Multi elements substituted Aurivillius phase relaxor ferroelectrics using high entropy design concept
(Elsevier BV, 2021-01)
The concept of high entropy ceramics opens up the possibility to optimise the properties of relaxor ferroelectrics with Aurivilius phase structures. In this paper, two new multi-element substituted Aurivillius phase ceramics, ...
Recent Progress and Challenges Towards Highly Stable Nonfullerene Acceptor-Based Organic Solar Cells
Organic solar cells (OSCs) based on nonfullerene acceptors (NFAs) have made significant breakthrough in their device performance, now achieving a power conversion efficiency of ~18% for single junction devices, driven by ...
Towards a mechanistic understanding of particle shrinkage during biomass pyrolysis via synchrotron X-ray microtomography and in-situ radiography.
(Nature Publishing Group, 2021-01-29)
Accurate modelling of particle shrinkage during biomass pyrolysis is key to the production of biochars with specific morphologies. Such biochars represent sustainable solutions to a variety of adsorption-dependent environmental ...
Understanding droplet collision with superhydrophobic-hydrophobic–hydrophilic hybrid surfaces
This study uses a two-phase finite volume method to investigate the dynamics of Newtonian and non-Newtonian droplets impacting onto hybrid surfaces with various wettabilities. Six configurations with different substrate ...
A novel optimal power management strategy for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle with improved adaptability to traffic conditions
Adaptability to various driving conditions (TCs) is one of the essential indicators to assess the optimality of power management strategies (PMSs) of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). In this study, a novel optimal ...
Electrospinning as a route to advanced carbon fibre materials for selected low-temperature electrochemical devices: a review
Electrospinning has been proven as a highly versatile fabrication method for producing nano-structured fibres with controllable morphology, of both the fibres themselves and the void structure of the mats. Additionally, ...
Comparative Adhesion of Chemically and Physically Crosslinked Poly(Acrylic Acid)-Based Hydrogels to Soft Tissues
In the design of polymeric biomaterials for soft tissue adhesion, careful regulation of the interactions between the material and soft tissue is critical. In order to improve the efficacy of bioadhesives, a greater ...
Effect of processing on the structures and properties of bismuth sodium titanate compounds
The processing of sodium (Na) and bismuth (Bi)-based piezoelectric compounds are always a concern due to their volatilization at high temperatures (> 1000 °C) and the hygroscopic nature of the precursors. The effect of ...
A Machine Learning Approach to Predicting the Heat Convection and Thermodynamics of an External Flow of Hybrid Nanofluid
