Biomass Gasifier technology

Biomass Gasifier Image Biomass gasification is a process of converting solid biomass fuel into a gaseous combustible gas (called producer gas) through a sequence of thermo-chemical reactions. The gas is a low-heating value fuel, with a calorific value between 1000- 1200 kcal/Nm3 (kilo calorie per normal cubic metre). Almost 2.5-3.0 Nm3 of gas can be obtained through gasification of about 1 kg of air-dried biomass. Since the 1980’s the research in biomass gasification has significantly increased in developing countries, as they aim to achieve energy security View details

Synthesising Poly Lactic Acid Clay Nanocomposites

Synthesising Poly Lactic Acid Clay Nanocomposites A process for preparing polylactic acid-clay nanocomposites by monomer intercalation, followed by polymerisation of lactide in clay. In case of lactic acid monomer, the process yields effective dispersion of polylactic acid prepolymer and clay, via intercalation and exfoliation of the clay with an oligomer and metal based catalyst followed by melt polymerization of lactic acid oligomer in clay.

Biosensors for Monitoring Diabetes

Biosensors for Monitoring Diabetes Glucose sensors can be implanted transdermally (beneath the skin) for monitoring diabetes and related ailments. Implantable glucose sensors often elicit inflammatory responses in the body. To reduce these responses and maintain the functionality and longevity of the sensors, the glucose sensors are coupled with an anti-inflammatory agent. View details

Low Cost Deposition Method for Faster ICs

Low Cost Deposition Method for Faster ICs A simple, cost effective and easy to perform method to make the low-Κ dielectric material layer coated on a silicon substrate robust against the degradation during ashing process and moisture uptake. The speed with which integrated circuits (ICs) work depend on the RC time constant (i.e., the time taken to process information). It is essential to use a material that has a low dielectric constant so that the RC time constant is also low. Hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ), with a dielectric constant of approximately 2.95, has been developed as a material to be deposited during the IC fabrication. However, HSQ is a porous material and is thus susceptible to the presence of moisture. View details

New Composite Layer to Help Make ICs Faster

New Composite Layer to Help Make ICs Faster A novel method of depositing an amorphous SiC:H barrier layer on a low dielectric material layer which speeds up the process of manufacturing Integrated Circuits (IC). The barrier layer is deposited by exposing the low dielectric material layer to hot wire chemical vapour deposition (HWCVD) using a mixture of silane and acetylene gases at temperatures of 200 to 300°C and at pressures of 100–200 mTorr.

Track It

Track It A method that uses markers to track planar movement of multiple objects from a sequence of digital images. Tracking of objects from a sequence of images requires automatic identification of the objects of interest as well as accurate location and orientation information on the tracked objects in each image frame. The approach used to meet these requirements includes item recognition based on the radiation characteristics and reflective properties of the object or of a tag or marker that is attached to the object. Use of such markers, when permissible, assists in tracking by facilitating the automatic recognition of the objects. View details
