    Adhesion modification of polyethylenes for metallization using radiation-induced grafting of vinyl monomers

    , Article Surface and Coatings Technology ; Volume 201, Issue 16-17 , 2007 , Pages 7519-7529 ; 02578972 (ISSN) Shojaei, A ; Fathi, R ; Sheikh, N ; Sharif University of Technology
    The present paper demonstrates the performance of the radiation grafting technique as a chemically based surface pretreatment method to adhesion modification of polyethylene surfaces toward the metallic layer. Gamma irradiation over a dose range of 4-10 kGy is used for grafting of vinyl monomers including acrylamide (AAm) and 1-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone (NVP) onto the surface of three different polyethylenes including low density polyethylene (LDPE) and two kinds of high density polyethylenes, namely HDPE-1 and HDPE-2. The grafting yield is evaluated based on the weight increase of the samples. It is found that the grafting yield is dominated by the crystallinity of the polyethylene, so that lower... 

    Electrodeposition of long gold nanotubes in polycarbonate templates as highly sensitive 3D nanoelectrode ensembles

    , Article Electrochimica Acta ; Volume 75 , 2012 , Pages 157-163 ; 00134686 (ISSN) Bahari Mollamahalle, Y ; Ghorbani, M ; Dolati, A ; Sharif University of Technology

    Electrodeposition of long and well-defined gold nanotubes in polycarbonate (PC) templates is still a major concern due to pore blockage problems. In the present study, we introduce a novel method for electrodeposition of long gold nanotubes within the pores of PC templates for the first time. In order to deposit gold atoms onto the pore walls preferentially, pore walls were functionalized with a coupling agent. Short and thin Ni nanotubes were then electrodeposited at the bottom of the pores. Gold nanotubes were subsequently electrodeposited at constant potentials and low solution concentrations. The morphology of nanotubes was characterized by electron microscopy and their formation... 

    Fabrication and Characterization of Patterned Carbon Nanotubes Network on the Silicon Wafer, by Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Zaimbashi, Mohsen (Author) ; Rashidian, Bijan (Supervisor)
    Carbon nanotubes, due to their extraordinary electronic and physical properties, have attracted much attention in the last decade. Some of their potential applications are in CNT-field effect transistor, field emission devices, physical and chemical sensors, micro and Nanoelectromechanical systems and Nano antenna. In this thesis, we have first reviewed some features of carbon nanotubes and the advantages of PECVD method compared with thermal CVD. In the second part the role of some of the materials (such as H2/NH3/C2H4) in CNT growth are studied. We created a square pattern on the silicon wafer by photolithography. Afterwards, titanium and nickel deposition is done on the mentioned pattern.... 

    High-Performance, flexible, all-solid-state wire-shaped asymmetric micro-supercapacitors based on three dimensional CoNi2S4 nanosheets decorated-nanoporous Ni-Zn-P Film/Cu wire

    Demand increasing for next generation portable and miniaturized electronics has aroused much interest to explore microscale and lightweight energy storage devices. Herein, we demonstrate successful development of flexible wire-shaped micro-supercapacitors (micro-SCs) based on novel CoNi2S4/E-NZP film@Cu wire electrode. The etched Ni-Zn-P (E-NZP) film was synthesized by directly deposition of NZP film on Cu wire, followed by a chemical etching process. Alkaline etching treatment provides a micro- and mesoporous structure with high surface area and facilitates the penetration of electrolyte ions into the electrode matrix. Then, CoNi2S4 nanosheets as electroactive material are electrochemically... 

    Template-based electrodeposition of Pt/Ni nanowires and its catalytic activity towards glucose oxidation

    , Article Electrochimica Acta ; Volume 58, Issue 1 , 2011 , Pages 551-555 ; 00134686 (ISSN) Mahshid, S. S ; Mahshid, S ; Dolati, A ; Ghorbani, M ; Yang, L ; Luo, S ; Cai, Q ; Sharif University of Technology
    An electro-catalysis non-enzymatic electrode is proposed based on alloyed Pt/Ni nanowire arrays (NWAs) for the detection of glucose. The Pt/Ni NWAs were prepared by pulse electrodeposition of Pt and Ni within a nano-pore polycarbonate (PC) membrane followed by a chemical etching of the membrane. The electrode structure is characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The resulting Pt/Ni NWAs electrode shows high electrocatalytic activities towards the oxidation of glucose in alkaline solution. Consequently, a sensitive amperometric detection of glucose is achieved under 0.45 V vs. SCE with a low detection limit of 1.5 μM within a wide linear...
