• Anti-fog coatings using the super-hydrophobic approach 

    Almeida, Riberet (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Surfaces with water contact angles in excess of 150⁰ have been attracting a great deal of attention. The work done here was in the design and development of an anti-fog coating. The hydrophilic as well as the hydrophobic ...
  • Characterization and MEMS applications of nanothermite materials 

    Apperson, Steven J., 1982- (University of Missouri-Columbia, 2010)
    The research described herein is on characterization of nanothermite materials and development of nanothermite microdevices for shock wave generation, microthruster propulsion, and intracellular particle delivery and cell ...
  • Deposition and characterization of high permittivity thin-film dielectrics 

    Ravindran, Ramasamy (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    As integrated circuit (IC) devices scale to ever smaller nodes, replacing the front end dielectric has become a primary challenge. To enable greater device densities, control power consumption, and enhance performance, a ...
  • Fabrication and characterization of polymer based metal-oxide-semiconductor and non-volatile memory devices 

    Yun, Minseong, 1978- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    Organic field-effect transistors (FETs) have been widely investigated due to their potential applications in low cost, large area, and flexible electronics. Despite the rapid progress in organic ...
  • Microfabricated devices for single cell analysis 

    Gao, Yuanfang (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    BioMEMS or lab-on-a-chip technology is promising technology and enables the possibility of microchip devices with higher throughput or better performance for single cell analysis. We have designed and fabricated microdevices ...
  • Nanogap embedded silver gratings for surface plasmon enhanced fluorescence 

    Bhatnagar, Kunal (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
    Plasmonic nanostructures have been extensively used in the past few decades for applications in sub-wavelength optics, data storage, optoelectronic circuits, microscopy and bio-photonics. The enhanced electric field produced ...
  • Synthesis of ordered nanoenergetic composites 

    Mehendale, Bhushan J. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
    Energetic materials can be defined as the substances or mixtures that react chemically to release energy required for their intended application. Thermite is a subgroup of pyrotechnic, a class of energetic material. ...
