Since the introduction of the LixC/LiCoO2 cell, rechargeable lithium batteries have become the technology of choice for applications where volume or weight are a consideration (e.g., laptop computers and cell phones). The focus of current research in cathode-active materials is on less-expensive or higher-performance materials than LiCoO2. This article illustrates how first-principles calculations can play a critical role in obtaining the understanding needed to design improved cathode oxides.


Electrostatic Stabilization of Alumina Nanopowder Suspensions
Çınar, Simge (American Scientific Publishers, 2014-03-01)
Electrostatic stabilization has an impact on a broad range of applications. Previous research has shown that concentrated alumina nanopowder suspensions can be stabilized at specific ranges of ionic strength and pH. This study investigated the stability of alumina nanopowder suspensions in terms of viscosity measurements as a function of different electrolyte concentration and suspension pH. Using alumina nanopowders with an average particle size of about 50 nm, stable suspensions were obtained with 0.020 ≤...
Quantifying Uncertainty in Internet of Medical Things and Big-Data Services Using Intelligence and Deep Learning
Al-Turjman, Fadi; Zahmatkesh, Hadi; Mostarda, Leonardo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-01-01)
In the cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) environments, quantifying uncertainty is an important element input to keep the acceptable level of reliability in various configurations. In this paper, we aim to address the pricing model of delivering data over the cloud while taking into consideration the dynamic uncertainty factors such as network topology, transmission/reception energy, nodal charge and power, and computation capacity. These uncertainty factors are mapped to different nodes with varying capa...

The ever increasing demand for storage of electrical energy in portable electronic devices and electric vehicles is driving technological improvements in rechargeable batteries. Lithium (Li) batteries have many advantages over other rechargeable battery technologies, including high specific energy and energy density, operation over a wide range of temperatures (-40 to 70 degrees C) and a low self-discharge rate, which translates into a long shelf-life (similar to 10 years) [1]. However, upon release of the ...
Reliability Assessment of IGBT Through Modelling and Experimental Testing
Ahsan, Mominul; How, Siew Teay; Batunlu, Canras; Albarbar, Alhussein (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
Lifetime of power electronic devices, in particular those used for wind turbines, is short due to the generation of thermal stresses in their switching device e.g., IGBT particularly in the case of high switching frequency. This causes premature failure of the device leading to an unreliable performance in operation. Hence, appropriate thermal assessment and implementation of associated mitigation procedure are required to put in place in order to improve the reliability of the switching device. This paper ...
Resonance-Based Temperature Sensors using a Wafer Level Vacuum Packaged SOI MEMS Process
Aydın, Gülşah Demirhan; Akın, Tayfun (VBRI Press AB, 2020-01-01)
This paper reports the development of resonance-based temperature sensors using a wafer level vacuum packaged SOI MEMS process which is normally used to implement various MEMS sensors, including MEMS gyroscopes and accelerometers. Implementing MEMS temperature sensors in such a MEMS process together with sensitive MEMS sensors allows obtaining temperature data, which is very useful for the compensation of a number of parameters of these MEMS sensors for obtaining improved performance from these sensors.
