Layered Composite thin Films for Cost Effective Transparent Organic Solar Cell Electrodes
In this dissertation two main themes are explored. In the first part some phenomenologies of light transport across the ZnO/Al/ZnO (ZAZ) thin film multilayer structures are investigated. The multilayered ZAZ thin film ...
Nano and Micro-Particles for Breast Cancer Detection and Treatment
This dissertation shows the use of material science and engineering approaches in developing solutions to problems in the life science with focus in nano and micro-particles for the detection and treatment of cancer. It ...
Mechanical Properties of Natural Fiber-Reinforced Earth-Based Composites
This study presents the results of a combined experimental and theoretical study of the strength, fracture toughness and interfacial properties of natural fiber-reinforced earth-based composite materials. The composites, ...
Biodegradation and Recycling of Polyethylene into Composite Building Materials
This work presents the results of experimental and theoretical studies of the biodegradation of polyethylene, recycling of polyethylene into strong and tough earth-based composite building materials and the statistical ...
Implantable Composite Devices for the Localized Treatment of Breast Cancer
Current standard of care treatment modalities for early-stage breast cancer typically involve mastectomy or lumpectomy followed by radiation therapy to remove any residual cancer cells. Although mastectomy has a low ...
