This paper describes a simple and fast process for the fabrication of flexible and textile-based supercapacitors. Symmetric electrodes made up of binder-free ternary composites of manganese oxide (MnO2) nanoparticles, single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) and a conducting polymer (either polyaniline (PANI) or poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-poly( styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT: PSS)) were layer-by-layer deposited onto cotton substrates by dip coating method. Solid-state supercapacitor devices were assembled using a gel electrolyte. Specific capacitances of 294 F/g and 246 F/g were obtained for MnO2/SWNT/PANI and MnO2/SWNT/PEDOT:PSS ternary nanocomposite supercapacitors, respectively. Power densities for these supercapacitors were 746.5W/kg and 640.5W/kg for MnO2/SWNT/PANI and MnO2/SWNT/PEDOT: PSS, respectively. Good capacity retention (more than 70%) upon cycling over 1000 times was achieved for both electrode compositions. Supercapacitors demonstrated in this work would be well suited as disposable power sources for wearable and intelligent textiles. Copyright (c) 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Ternary nanocomposite SWNT/WO3/PANI thin film electrodes for supercapacitors
Yuksel, Recep; Durucan, Caner; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah (2016-02-15)
We describe a simple and fast process for the fabrication of ternary nanocomposite supercapacitor electrodes. In this work, thin film supercapacitor electrodes made up of binder-free single walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) thin films were deposited onto glass substrates by vacuum filtration followed by stamping method. Next, tungsten oxide (WO3) and polyaniline (PANI) were electrodeposited on the SWNT thin films. Combination of SWNTs and pseudocapacitive WO3 and PANI created a synergistic and complementary eff...
Transparent and Flexible Supercapacitors with Single Walled Carbon Nanotube Thin Film Electrodes
YÜKSEL, Recep; SARIOBA, Zeynep; Çırpan, Ali; Hiralal, Pritesh; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah (2014-09-10)
We describe a simple process for the fabrication of transparent and flexible, solid-state supercapacitors. Symmetric electrodes made up of binder-free single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) thin films were deposited onto polydimethylsiloxane substrates by vacuum filtration followed by a stamping method, and solid-state supercapacitor devices were assembled using a gel electrolyte. An optical transmittance of 82% was found for 0.02 mg of SWCNTs, and a specific capacitance of 22.2 F/g was obtained. The power d...
Performance of CMS hadron calorimeter timing and synchronization using test beam, cosmic ray, and LHC beam data
Chatrchyan, S.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2010-03-01)
This paper discusses the design and performance of the time measurement technique and of the synchronization systems of the CMS hadron calorimeter. Time measurement performance results are presented from test beam data taken in the years 2004 and 2006. For hadronic showers of energy greater than 100 GeV, the timing resolution is measured to be about 1.2 ns. Time synchronization and out-of-time background rejection results are presented from the Cosmic Run At Four Tesla and LHC beam runs taken in the Autumn ...
Cobalt Oxide Nanoflakes on Single Walled Carbon Nanotube Thin Films for Supercapacitor Electrodes
Durukan, Mete Batuhan; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah (2016-12-20)
We demonstrate a simple and cost-effective approach for the fabrication of cobalt oxide (Co3O4) nanoflakes on single walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) thin films for supercapacitor electrodes. SWNT thin films are prepared by vacuum filtration and consecutive stamping method onto which cobalt hydroxide (Co(OH)(2)) nanoflakes are electrodeposited and annealed to obtain Co3O4. A gravimetric capacitance of 313.9 F.g(-1), corresponding to an areal specific capacitance of 70.5 mF.cm(-2) is obtained from the fabricate...
Aerodynamic modelling and optimization of morphing wings
Körpe, Durmuş Sinan; Özgen, Serkan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2014)
This thesis deals with aerodynamic optimization of morphing wings under performance and geometric constraints. In order to perform the optimization process, flow solvers computing aerodynamic lift and drag were developed as a function evaluator. A gradient based optimization method was used in order to develop the optimization algorithm. Three dimensional panel method solver was developed in order to obtain lift, pressure drag and induced drag values for a finite wing. Obtained results were compared with di...
