  • OLED Materials

    OLED performance is largely dependent upon OLED materials. This chapter describes the classification of OLED materials and typical OLED materials.OLED materials are divided into two types – vacuum evaporation type and solution type – from a process point of view. Vacuum evaporation materials are usually small molecular materials, while solution type materials contain polymers, dendrimers, and small molecular materials. In addition, materials are also divided into fluorescent materials, phosphorescent materials, and thermally activated delayed fluorescent (TADF) materials in terms of emission mechanisms. From the function point of view, OLED materials can be classified as hole injection material, hole transport material, emission material, host material in emissive layer, electron transport material, electron injection material, charge blocking material, etc.Anode and cathode materials are also important, so this chapter also describes anode and cathode materials.In addition, this chapter describes molecular orientations of organic materials because this also influences OLED characteristics.

  • Limited Visionary: Career-Limiting Belief #9

    Engineers are trained to do a job, but some have shortsightedness when thinking about how their individual tasks contribute to the whole enterprise. This chapter discusses some of the actions that clearly represent limiting belief #9. Successful people understand that they must look beyond their immediate organization. They understand that they must help coordinate every part of the organization that they impact and touch. They also know that they do not work in isolation. Adding this Gem to the Map of the World shifts the focus of attention, positively. It is important to find the cause-and-effect relationships of manager's actions beyond the immediate areas of involvement. Managers cannot be everywhere and cannot know everything. They are dependent upon communication with a wide variety of sources in order to understand if those who report to them are completing their work as expected.

  • Subordinate Clauses Used as Qualifiers

    The subordinate clauses typically used as qualifiers in technical writing are of two types:_that_and_which_clauses and adverb clauses. This chapter begins by looking at_that_and_which_clauses because (1) they are ubiquitous in technical writing; (2) the rule for punctuating that and which clauses can serve as a model for the punctuation of all other qualifiers; and (3) most of the other qualifiers, both clauses and phrases, can be recast as that or which clauses._That_and_which_clauses were qualifiers that modify nouns, adverb clauses are qualifiers that may modify a verb, an adjective, another adverb, or perhaps the entire core of the sentence. Finally the chapter presents general rule for punctuating the subordinate clauses.

  • Design and Fabrication of Electrospun PVDF Piezo-Energy Harvesters

    Nanogenerators capable of converting energy from mechanical sources to electricity with high effective efficiency using low-cost, nonsemiconducting, organic nanomaterials are attractive for many applications, including energy harvesters. In this work, near-field electrospinning is used to direct-write poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) nanofibers with in situ mechanical stretch and electrical poling characteristics to produce piezoelectric properties. Under mechanical stretching, nanogenerators have shown repeatable and consistent electrical outputs with energy conversion efficiency an order of magnitude higher than those made of PVDF thin films. The early onset of the nonlinear domain wall motions behavior has been identified as one mechanism responsible for the apparent high piezoelectricity in nanofibers, rendering them potentially advantageous for sensing and actuation applications.

  • Chipless RFID Sensor for Real‐Time Environment Monitoring

    This chapter proposes a chipless radio‐frequency identification (RFID) sensor for environment monitoring. It integrates smart humidity sensing materials with radar cross‐section (RCS) scatterers to incorporate environment sensing in frequency spectral analysis. Chipless RFID sensor development is carried out into two phases. The aim of the first phase is to perform RF characterization of two humidity sensing polymers Kapton and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) to compare their humidity sensitivity. In this phase, the chapter identifies a number of RF sensing parameters for calibrating humidity in real environments. In the second phase, a chipless RFID humidity sensor is developed based on RCS scatterer. Detailed experimentation is carried out to verify humidity sensor performance. The measured sensor response is analyzed to exploit calibration curve for unknown humidity measurement. Finally, the chapter discusses the effect of hysteresis, repeatability, and time response.

  • Self-Organization

    This chapter presents the principles of Self-Organization, and focuses on Adaptive Resonance Theory (ART) and Self-Organizing Map (SOM) neural networks. It investigates the theoretic basis of formulations of these neural networks, and illustrates a few examples. The structures of these networks and their learning algorithms are also thoroughly explored in the chapter. The ART architecture is a specifically designed neural network to overcome the stability-plasticity dilemma. It is described using nonlinear differential equations. In addition to ART and SOM, there are two other fixed approaches that could be considered fundamental, namely, Neural Gas and the Hierarchical Feature Map. While both are strongly related to the SOM in terms of the learning mechanism, they each have spawned a range of newer architectures are introduced in the chapter. The chapter explains other popular architectures to have emerged based on similar principles of Self-Organization, drawing a distinction between static and dynamic architectures.

  • Smart Materials for Chipless RFID Sensors

    This chapter explores smart sensing materials for microwave sensing applications. It first discusses a comparative analysis of various nonconductive, semiconductive, and high conductive materials in the context of their microwave sensing properties. The chapter then reviews various smart materials for microwave sensing applications and explores their microwave characteristics in the influence of physical parameters such as temperature, humidity, pressure, strain, gas, pH, and light. These materials are investigated for microwave sensing materials in the chipless radio‐frequency identification (RFID) platform. A number of materials including polymer shows sensitivity to pH variation of product. A number of conducting polymers also show noticeable changes in conductivity with pH. Various materials such as glass microfiber‐reinforced polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) composite, polyester‐based stretchable fabric, Nickel‐Titanium (Nitinol) alloy can be used as strain and crack sensors for structural health monitoring. The stepped impedance resonator (SIR) was designed and fabricated for the light sensing experiments.

  • Biomaterials for Tissue Engineering

    Biomaterials are used to provide structural support during the tissue and organ fabrication process and are designed to simulate properties of the mammalian extracellular matrix.

We provide a working definition of biomaterials and discuss biomaterial classification schemes and biomaterial platforms. During the course of this chapter, we also study biomaterial properties, including tensile properties, degradation kinetics, biocompatibility and biomimetic properties.
