    Determination of the Metastable Zone and Induction Time in Nucleation of Aluminum Sulfate Nanoparticles in Presence of Anti-solvent and Surface Active Agents

    Aluminum sulfate is widely used in water treatment as a polyelectrolyte. Its dissolution and recrystallization into nanoparticles directly affects the working conditions. This study concerns determination of the metastable zone and induction time in nucleation of aluminum sulfate nanoparticles in aqueous media and in presence of acetone as anti-solvent. Later the effect of SDS on the metastable zone and induction time are also studied.. The study also shows if the presence of anti-solvents and surface active agents can vary this phenomenon. The study also adds to our understanding of the media in creation and stabilization of nanoparticles. This project has a special focus on the changes... 

    Control of Size of Graphene Domain Synthesized by Chemical Vapor Deposition

    The chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of graphene from methane on a copper substrate is the most promising method for production of large-area graphene films. There have been long-standing challenges in this field such as controlling the graphene coverage, film quality, the number of layers, and the nucleation density of graphene domain. These challenges can be overcome by developing a fundamental understanding of the graphene growth process. The main aim of this study is to control nucleation density of graphene domains. Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) graphene is polycrystalline, and grain boundaries in graphene film have been identified to degrade the properties of graphene as a membrane... 

    Neural Synchrony of Spiking Local Neurons and Local Field Potential Activities in Primary Visual Cortex of Awake Monkeys

    Primary visual cortex plays a paramount role in processing visual information. Visual information after the primitive processing by LGN and Thalamus, will be sent to the primary visual cortex which is called V1 area. According to the fact that V1 neurons have the definitive sensitivity to the edge and contrast of visual stimuli so their behavior are very selective to the certain features, specially contrast, of visual stimuli. These neurons have different response behavior to contrast. In fact most of them have some nonlinear behavior to this feature. Normally we expect that response of them or spiking rate of them grow linearly by the contrast increases but in most many cases they have some...
