    An exact treatment of ellipsoid-substrate interactions

    , Article EPL ; Volume 77, Issue 2 , 2007 ; 02955075 (ISSN) Babadi, M ; Ejtehadi, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology
    We present an exact treatment of the pairwise surface interactions of biaxial ellipsoidal bodies and derive the exact explicit expressions for the attractive-repulsive Lennard-Jones(6-12) ellipsoid-substrate interactions. The applicability of the results at nanoscale as a coarse-grained description of molecule-substrate interactions has been studied through presenting parameterizations for a number of small biaxial molecules. The study concludes that the anisotropic coarse-grained potential reproduces the atomistic interactions of ellipsoid-like rigid molecules perfectly, with a negligible error of less than 3%.

    In this paper quasi photonic crystal fibers (QPCFs) based on 8-fold and Penrose symmetries are analyzed. The confinement loss of both proposed QPCFs with employing perfect matching layer by finite element method has been calculated. It is shown for both presented structures, the confinement loss is negligible relative to Rayleigh scattering loss. The birefringence of Penrose tile QPCF, is 80 times greater than that of Amnan Beenker quasicrystal fiber. We present numerically the existence of endlessly single mode fiber and zero birefringence QPCFs as advantage of employing novel rotational symmetry. © 2017, National Institute of Optoelectronics.

Non-isothermal DTA experiments showed that the crystallization activation energies of base glasses are changed in the range of 235-246 KJ/mol, while the crystallization activation energies of samples with addition of NaF are changed in the range of 263-367 KJ/mol. The increase of crystallization temperature is helpful for the increase of aspect ratio, and the microstructure of the glass ceramics becomes interconnected, which contributes... 

    Crystallization behavior of mica glass-ceramics with nanophase structure

    , Article Synthesis and Reactivity in Inorganic, Metal-Organic and Nano-Metal Chemistry ; Volume 42, Issue 3 , 2012 , Pages 420-423 ; 15533174 (ISSN) Ghasemzadeh, M ; Nemati, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    The influence of Zr 2 on the crystallization behavior, microstructure, and machinability of SiO 2-Al 2O 3-MgO-K 2O-B 2O 3-F glasses was investigated. The crystallization of the glass-ceramic was markedly affected by addition of ZrO 2. These glasses crystallize more rapidly. The number of mica crystals increases, whereas the size of the mica crystals decreases drastically. Machining of these glass-ceramics was found to be good, as confirmed by a drilling test using conventional steel tools. Such mechanical properties are attributable to the microstructure of these glass-ceramics. Very fine crystals are homogeneously distributed in glass matrix

    This mini review article, intends to provide the essential information about microemulsion technique as a reliable approach toward the synthesis of zeolitic nano crystallites. The strategy discussed here provides a unique, effective, and potentially general methodology to the preparation of uniform and high purity nano crystallites of template-free zeolitic materials including LTA, faujasite type and other zeolitic-like materials (i.e. zeotype materials). Microemulsion is a reliable approach for controlled synthesis of uniform nano sized zeolitic particulates. On the other hand, the microwave assisted microemulsion technique has the advantages of short reaction time, producing smaller and...

    In the present work, a new vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) structure employing combined oxide layer and single defect photonic crystal index guiding layer has been investigated for L-band optical fiber application. The basic design goal was to obtain photonic crystal VCSEL (PhC VCSEL) with the high power, high slop efficiency and low threshold that operate at 1.55-1.6μm wavelength single mode region. By using the combination of photonic crystal and oxide layer, we have achieved high power VCSEL that operated fundamental mode. The influence of the hole etching depth of photonic crystal looking for the highest power and the lowest threshold current is also investigated

    Novel variational approach for analysis of photonic crystal slabs

    , Article Materials Research Express ; Volume 2, Issue 5 , April , 2015 ; 20531591 (ISSN) Aram, M. H ; Khorasani, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Institute of Physics Publishing  2015
    We propose a new method, based on variational principle, for the analysis of photonic crystal (PC) slabs. Most of the methods used today treat PC slabs as three-dimensional (3D) crystal, and this makes these methods very time and/or memory consuming. In our proposed method, we use the Bloch theorem to exp and the field on infinite plane waves, whose amplitudes depend on the component perpendicular to the slab surface. By approximating these amplitudes with appropriate functions, we can find modes of PC slabs almost as fast as we can find modes of two-dimensional crystals. In addition to this advantage, we can also calculate radiation modes with this method, which is not feasible with the 3D...

    Ideal orientations are one of the material characteristics of the applied mode of deformation. The transfer of material texture to orientations near specific ideal orientations can improve the mechanical properties of the material. In this paper, we focus on the determination of ideal orientations of BCC crystals under the equibiaxial tension mode of deformation. To do this, an Euler space scanning method based on a crystal plasticity approach is presented. In this method some initial orientations which are evenly spaced in the Euler space are selected and their evolutions into the ideal orientations are tracked. The loading is applied incrementally until all of the lattice spin components...

    MIL-101(Cr) metal–organic framework samples were successfully synthesized through the conventional electrical heating (CE), ultrasound (US), and microwave (MW) synthetic methods at three different temperatures and various synthesis times. These were done with the aim of understudying the crystallization kinetics of these complex MIL's structures. The nucleation and crystal growth steps were thus, quantified through measuring the relative crystallinity of the prepared MIL-101(Cr) utilizing the PXRD and FESEM analysis under various synthesis conditions. In addition, the textural properties of the fully crystallized samples measured through the N2 adsorption–desorption isotherms at 77 K. The... 

    Numerical study on the effects of main BCC rolling texture components on the formability of sheet metals

    , Article International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology ; Volume 80, Issue 1-4 , March , 2015 , Pages 245-253 ; 02683768 (ISSN) Hajian, M ; Assempour, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Springer-Verlag London Ltd  2015
    Crystallographic texture considerably affects the formability of crystalline materials. In this paper, the effects of BCC ideal rolling fibers—including α, ε, η, γ, and ξ fibers—on the sheet formability are numerically studied. The simulations are based on the numerical procedure developed by the authors in [1] in which a rate dependent crystal plasticity model along with the power law hardening are employed in a user material subroutine to model the behavior of crystalline materials. In order to determine FLD—in a M-K type approach—second-order derivative of sheet thickness variations with respect to time is used as necking criterion. The calculated FLDs of the fibers are compared with each... 

    Efficient analysis of confined guided modes in phoxonic crystal slabs

    , Article Journal of Lightwave Technology ; Volume 35, Issue 17 , 2017 , Pages 3734-3742 ; 07338724 (ISSN) Aram, M. H ; Khorasani, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Today's standard fabrication processes are just capable of manufacturing slab of photonic and phononic crystals, so an efficient method for analysis of these crystals is indispensable. Plane wave expansion (PWE) as a widely used method in studying photonic and phononic (phoxonic) crystals in full three dimensions is not suitable for slab analysis in its standard form, because of convergence and stability issues. Here, we propose a modification to this method which overcomes these limitations. This improved method can be utilized for calculation of both photonic and phononic modes in phoxonic slabs. While in the standard three-dimensional PWE, Fourier series are used to estimate the field...

    Springer  2012
    Formation of machinable glass-ceramic in the system MgO-SiO 2-Al2O3-K2O-B2O 3-F with and without addition of MgF2 has been investigated. Crystallization of glass sample was done by controlled thermal heat treatment at nucleation and crystallization temperatures. The results showed that MgF2 in high concentration had a synergistic effect and enhanced the formation of interlockedmica crystals. Non-isothermal DTA experiments showed that the crystallization activation energies of base glasses were changed in the range of 235-405 kJ/mol, while the crystallization activation energies of samples with addition of MgF2 were changed in the range of 548-752 kJ/mol
