Development of Augmented Reality Lightguide

N. Katte1
1Wilberforce University, Wilberforce, OH, USA

Augmented reality (AR) provides the unique ability to interact with virtual information, while also interacting with information in the real world. Lightguides can be used in the place of complicated freeform optics to make a light weight augmented reality device. In this paper this ... Read More

Numerical Model of Induced Transmembrane Voltage for Cell Electroporation Using COMSOL Multiphysics®

U. Ghosh1, J. D. Zahn1
1Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey, USA

Electroporation is the process of creating temporary hydrophilic pores in the cell membrane by applying an external electric field of specific strength and duration. It is used for gene transfection, and transport of other useful biomolecules and therapeutic drugs into the cell. When a ... Read More

Time-Dependent Study of Capacitively Coupled Plasma Using Fixed Power Condition

H. Chang1
1CAE Solution Team, Altsoft, Inc., Seoul, South Korea

A power supply is generally used in many electrical devices. In order to deliver uniform power irrespective of time variation, most plasma equipment also uses a power source. Therefore, the power condition in plasma simulations is essential. In time-dependent models using a current ... Read More

Investigating the Impact of Substrate Composition on 3D Printed mmWave CSRR Sensor

J. Persad1, S. Rocke1, A. Roopnarine1, A. Abdool1
1Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, The University of The West Indies, Trinidad & Tobago

Diabetes is a chronic noncommunicable disease which lays a heavy burden on many impoverished communities globally. The ability to monitor and manage the disease is one key component to lessening its impact. 3D printing (3DP) offers an economical manufacturing method to produce medical ... Read More

Numerical Modeling of Single-Phase Fluid-Flow in Wavy Micro-Channels

R. Durantes1, J. Moon1, A. Pacheco-Vega1, J. Rafael Pacheco2
1Department of Mechanical Engineering, California State University, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, USA
2SAP America Inc., Tempe, AZ,, USA

High power-density electronic devices had achieved levels of heat generation that have exceed the current heat removal capacities. Due to the increase in power density of modern electronic chips, there is a need of a higher heat flux removal capabilities, and single-phase fluid-flow wavy ... Read More

MA. Rab1, F. Alam2
1Norfolk State University, Norfolk, VA, USA
2UnitedHealth Group, Minneapolis, MN, USA

Current research focus on improvement of electrical, mechanical, surface characteristics of polypropylene films by incorporation of nanoparticles into the polymer matrix of the film. We built 3D model of polypropylene Nanocomposites made of polypropylene matrix and incorporating various ... Read More

A Pyroprobe Design for Millisecond Time-Scale Resolution of Bio-Based Sustainable Reaction Products

P. L. Mills1, A. Nanduri1
1Texas A&M University, Kingsville, TX, USA

Existing commercial pyrolysis systems do not have the capability to perform millisecond-scale temporal analysis of pyrolysis vapors that can provide time-resolved experimental data on the reactive and stable gas-phase intermediates predicted by models based on Density Functional Theory ...

Ray Optics and Heat Transfer Analysis of a Curved Fresnel Lens Heater for a Desalination System

L. M. Almara1
1University of North Texas, Denton, Texas, USA

Seawater can be converted into fresh water using solar energy. This is as an easy, suitable and green solution method to obtain heat for desalination. It is possible to concentrate the sunlight heat flux onto a small focal area by using a Fresnel lens. When the focal area is correctly ... Read More

Numerical Simulation of Field-Scale Landfill Gas Emission

Y. Feng1, J. Eun1
1University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE, USA

Controlling the odiferous landfill gas (LFG) [e.g., Hydrogen sulfide (H2S)] emission is an important environmental issue during operating a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill. A combination of LFG collection system and landfill cover has been an adapted method to mitigate the issue ... Read More
