    Osseointegrated dental implants are deficient in natural periodontal ligaments. It may therefore, disrupts the natural function of implant and leads to excessive stress and strain in jaw bone. Our new proposed implant has the nonlinear internal component which imitates periodontal ligaments function. A nonlinear finite element analysis developed to investigate the efficiency of utilizing this nonlinear internal layer for three conditions of bone implant interface conditions under vertical and horizontal loading conditions. Our results so far indicate that the use of a class of material exhibiting incompressible hyperelastic behaviour as a internal layer can reduce the peak stress deduced...

    , Article Journal of Vacuum Science and Technology B: Microelectronics and Nanometer Structures ; Volume 23, Issue 6 , 2005 , Pages 2821-2824 ; 10711023 (ISSN) Ben Assayag, G ; Shalchian, M ; Coffin, H ; Claverie, A ; Grisolia, J ; Dumas, C ; Atarodi, S. M ; Sharif University of Technology
    In this paper, we present the room temperature current-voltage characteristics of large (100×100 μ m2) and a nanoscale (100×100 nm2) metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) capacitor containing few silicon nanocrystals. The layer of silicon crystals is synthesized within the oxide of this capacitor by ultralow energy ion implantation and annealing. Current fluctuations in the form of discrete current steps and sharp peaks are apparent in the static and dynamic I (V) characteristics of the capacitor. These features have been associated to quantized charging and discharging of the nanoparticles and the resulting Coulomb interaction to the tunneling current. © 2005 American Vacuum Society

    Titanium (Ti) has been widely used for manufacturing of bone implants because of its mechanical properties, biological compatibility, and favorable corrosion resistance in biological environments. However, Ti implants are prone to infection (peri-implantitis) by bacteria which in extreme cases necessitate painful and costly revision surgeries. An emerging, viable solution for this problem is to use copper (Cu) as an antibacterial agent in the alloying system of Ti. The addition of copper provides excellent antibacterial activities, but the underpinning mechanisms are still obscure. This review sheds light on such mechanisms and reviews how incorporation of Cu can render Ti–Cu implants with...

    Natural teeth are connected to alveolar bone by periodontal ligaments ( PDL). PDL in addition to supporting tooth have the damping effect on transferring load from tooth to the surrounding bone. The most common replacement for a complete tooth loss is the use of Osseointegrated dental implants. The healthy bone remodeling and full bonding between bone and titanium surface of the implant is subjected to a successful osseointegration. The lack of PDLs in the structure of implant-bone system could lead to the failure of implant’s components due to overloading or to the impact loads. The aim of this study is to use viscoelastic material in the structure of dental implants to compensate for the...

    In the Ion Implanter system a controled current through a tungesten filament, supplies the heat which causes the thermoionic emmition to ionize the gas molecules. Then the negativly charged electrones that are boiled off the filament, and also the ones that are removed from the outer ring of the gas molecules during the ionization process, are attracted by an adjustable voltage source. In this thesis, two resonant converter topologies are proposed to designe and to implement the adjustable current and voltage sources for ion implantation system. Unlike the PWM converters soft switching techniques, used auxiliary circuits to reduce the switching losses and EMI noises, in the proposed resonant...

    , Article AEU - International Journal of Electronics and Communications ; Volume 117 , 2020 Beigi, A ; Safarian, A ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier GmbH  2020
    In this paper, a low power receiver for medical implant communication service (MICS) is presented. Low power design is vital in the MICS applications since the implanted chip has to work for a long time without the need to change its battery. As a result, a merged N-path low noise amplifier (LNA) and mixer block is proposed. In this structure, the LNA and down-conversion mixer share a transconductance to lower the overall power consumption. An N-path feedback is utilized around the shared transconductance not only to improve the LNA selectivity and relax the linearity requirements but also to downconvert the radio frequency (RF) component and create the intermediate frequency (IF) signal. In...
