Carriers multiplication in silicon nanocrystals (Si-ncs) in a one promising eefect to considerably enhance conversion efficiency of solar cells that can overcome theoretical limits. A close proximity of Si-ncs is an essential factor for carrier multiplication due to the separated quantum cutting effect.

In typical microfluidic immunosensors, the channel walls are functionalized with antibodies through intermediate linker molecules. The carrier fluid containing the antigens flows through the channels, and the antigens diffuse and electromigrate to the walls as the carrier fluid is convected along the channel. This interplay ...

  • Improvement of the adhesion of new memory packages by surface engineering

    For the assembly of new memory modules for the PC market, investigations were carried out concerning lead free solder contacts for the BGAs and new green plastics, which cause an improvement of the adhesion during the packaging process. Since there were frequent delaminations in the packaging process with these new memory chip materials during the mold processes, solder ball attach or the SMT reflow soldering, a special plasma pre-treatment was introduced. With this plasma pre-treatment, a significant improvement of the surface energies of the involved silicon chip, BT interposer material and solder mask was obtained and thus a better adhesion of the mold compound was achieved. For proof, measurement of the contact angle and computation of the surface energy on the surfaces treated in the plasma showed this improvement, in comparison to untreated samples.

The small imitated experiment research of setting tank linked with air flotation are applied, different technological parameters such as: aerated way, release way, reflux ratio and dosing concentration are considered beyond tests. As a result, when reflux ratio is among 15~20%, dissolved vapor pressure air-float measures can increase the better oil removal efficiency.

  • Surface engineering of microfluidic systems for cellular biochips

    In this paper, we describe a rapid and cost-effective hydrophilic surface modification method for PDMS microsystems that is both durable and biocompatible. The method involves a combination of an oxygen plasma treatment followed by coating the activated surfaces with a hydrophilic and biocompatible polymer. In this case, poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) is used to increase the surface energy of PDMS microchannels and render them hydrophilic. Contact angle experiments show that the surface of the PDMS remains hydrophilic for an extended period of time under dry conditions. Uses for microfluidic and cell chip applications are demonstrated.

  • Carriers multiplication in neighboring surfactant-free silicon nanocrystals produced by 3D-surface engineering in liquid medium.

    Carriers multiplication in silicon nanocrystals (Si-ncs) in a one promising eefect to considerably enhance conversion efficiency of solar cells that can overcome theoretical limits. A close proximity of Si-ncs is an essential factor for carrier multiplication due to the separated quantum cutting effect. In this study we present results on investigation of 3-dimensional (3D) surface engineering of Si-ncs directly in water. Thus at the same time allow close proximity Si-ncs without of using any surfactant. The approach is based on ns laser treatment of Si-ncs dispersed in liquid solution. We explore the excitation wavelength dependence of photoluminescence quantum yield (ratio of the number of emitted and absorbed photons) for Si-ncs as prepared and surface engineered by ns laser processing. Our results suggest that close proximity of Si-ncs in spherical particles induced by laser processing might enhance also carriers multiplication.

  • IT15. Transport and reactions in microfluidic immunosensors

    There is a growing interest on microfluidic immunosensors for use as point-of- care diagnostic devices. In typical microfluidic immunosensors, the channel walls are functionalized with antibodies through intermediate linker molecules. The carrier fluid containing the antigens flows through the channels, and the antigens diffuse and electromigrate to the walls as the carrier fluid is convected along the channel. This interplay of the coupled phenomena of convection-diffusion-electromigration which affects the capture efficiencies and thus the detection limits, is an important aspect in the design of microfluidic immunosensors, and will be the main theme of the talk. The diffusion is governed by the velocity profile, which in turn is governed by the interaction of the carrier fluid molecules with the surface antibodies; and electromigration is governed by the electrical double layer. Some experimental results will be presented. Surface engineering (physical and chemical) was used to study the factors affecting these energies (substrates and underlying stack of self assembled linker molecules) and significant tunability of the energies of the surface antibodies was achieved. The effects of the surface engineering on the fluid flow characteristics in pressure driven antibody-functionalized silicon microchannels, and the molecular capture will be highlighted. This knowledge can be utilized to design more efficient microfluidic immunosensors.

  • Enhanced CdTe solar cell performance through surface engineering

    Surface of indium-tin oxide (ITO) substrate were irradiated with accelerated Ar/sup +/, N/sub 2//sup +/, O/sub 2//sup +/ and H/sub 2//sup +/ ions (1 keV) at different doses. The change in sheet resistance (R/sub sh/), the water- contact angle (WCA) and the composition of ITO were measured. R/sub sh/ slightly increased with the ion dose. WCA dropped to less than 15/spl deg/ and the composition shifted to oxygen-rich. CdS films grown on ITO by chemical bath deposition showed an improvement in terms of the microstructure, the surface morphology, the optical transmittance, and the stoichiometry. X-ray photoluminescence was performed on CdS/ITO glass for the first time. The performance of CdTe/CdS solar cells was improved as a result of ITO surface treatments, this being due to improvements in the physical structure of the CdS interfaces.

  • Experimental Research on Separation Performance of Micro-Pore Filtering Hydrocyclones

    A micro-pore filtering hydrocyclone was developed by combining filtering micro-pore tube with normal liquid-liquid hydrocyclone. Experimental study on oil-water mixture separation performance was carried out by using the new hydrocyclone. Filtering efficiency and underflow efficiency were measured and analyzed. Continuous operation experiments were conducted. It is concluded that PE-5 micro-pore tube is more suitable than PE-8 for this experimental condition, and the filtering efficiency began to decrease after running 75 minutes in continuous operation, and dropped to 85.4% after 180 minutes. This study is helpful for the application hydrocyclones in wider fields.

  • Surface engineering of functional materials for biosensors

    Single crystal SiC with suitable surface termination and ZnO films on top have been grown. Biomolecular immobilization on the grown surfaces has been performed. APTES on Si terminated SiC surfaces and reaction with a compound containing a pre-activated carboxylic group was used. The rate of success for surface functionalization was monitored by XPS. A successful two-step functionalization including binding of MPA through an amide bond formation, between the amine group of APTES and the carboxylic group in MPA on ZnO epilayers, was shown as a proof of concept for biofunctionalization
