The objective of the work is to propose a reliability enhancement model for antigen detection system (ADS) using bio MEMS based cantilever array sensors using heterogeneous modular redundancy technique. The reliability of the ADS is expressed in terms of the constituent sub systems which are heterogeneous not only in their respective structures and behaviors but also in their forms. The possible ...

Enzymatic biofuel cells (EBFCs) are considered as a promising candidate for powering miniature implantable devices. In order to predict the performance in the human blood artery, we simulated a 3D EBFC chip with highly dense micro-electrode arrays. In this simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics®, we applied the 1) Michaelis Menten equation; 2) Nernst potential equation; 3) Navier Strokes velocity, ...

Auxiliary Power Units can play an important role in reducing vehicle emissions, especially in diesel and kerosene driven vehicles. In conventional vehicles the electricity supply comes from a generator that is directly coupled to the propulsion engine. New generation of fuel cell APUs exclusively use Solid Oxide Fuel Cells with some developments in high temperature polymer electrolyte membranes ...

Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is widely used in various fields including the fabrication of electronic devices due to its uniform film formation capability on the large-scale wafers and the minute 3D structures. In CVD, precursors (metal compounds) are commonly reacted in gas-phase as well as on the substrate to yield a film, and thereby it is rather difficult to reveal the reaction mechanism ...

In this paper we present results of simulations done to predict the behavior of a system consisting of DNA molecules in an aqueous medium under the combined effect of AC Electroosmosis and Dielectrophoresis (DEP). ACEO is caused by the movement of fluid particles under the influence of the electric field. DEP is caused by polarization of the DNA particle. Two different electrode geometries ...

Continuous flow reactors are recently being used for lab scale synthesis as well as pilot scale manufacturing of high value low volume chemicals. Here we present our work on a new configuration of flow reactor that includes several 1800 bends and yet a varying radius of curvature thereby yielding continuous change in the direction of streamlines. Experiments as well as simulations (in COMSOL ...

The Automotive industry has now become a technology of “Drive by Wire”. This technology is used to replace the conventional mechanical system by electromechanical system which is able to perform the same tasks faster, more reliably and accurately. The problems with the traditional braking systems are unreliable at high speeds, long respond time, more brake pad wear, high temperature ...

A fuel cell is an efficient and clean alternative power source of energy. Alkaline anion exchange membrane (AAEM) fuel cells are one in which conduction of oH- (hydroxyl ion) take place. The advantages of using alkaline fuel cells over proton exchange membrane fuel cells is that electrochemical kinetics is fast and alkaline environment is friendly for catalysts. Experiments performed at ...

One of the major challenges faced by the semiconductor industry is that electronic circuits produce a lot of heat energy during their operation. And with the current scenario where the gates are packed so much close together, then the problem of heat generation has become extremely significant. So we are working towards the efficient heat management and dissipation solution for the heat generated ...

Ion implantation in insulating materials leads to local variations in mechanical and optical properties that can be exploited for the fabrication of micro-structures. In particular, ion irradiation of diamond causes the formation of buried amorphised layers, with correspondent mass density and refractive index variations that depend on the level of “damage” of the crystal structure. ...
