From Lab to Industrial: PZT nanoparticles synthesis and process control for application in additive manufacturing
Lead Zirconate Titanate (PZT) nanoparticles hold many promising current and future applications, such as PZT ink for 3-D printing or seeds for PZT thick films. One common method is hydrothermal growth, in which temperature, duration time, or mineralizer concentrations are optimized to produce PZT nanoparticles with desired ...
PZT Thin Film Micro Probe Device with Dual Top Electrodes
Lead zirconate titanate (PZT) thin-film actuators have been studied intensively for years because of their potential applications in many fields. In this dissertation, a PZT thin-film micro probe device is designed, fabricated, studied, and proven to be acceptable as an intracochlear acoustic actuator. The micro probe device ...
Experimental and Numerical Study of Fatigue Life in Aluminum 6061-T6 under Stochastic Loading
Numerically determining fatigue under stochastic vibrations are typically performed use computational intensive transient response models. This research will delve into an alternate less computation intensive method of applying linear modal analysis combined with Power Spectral Density (PSD) excitation functions to develop ...
Phase Transformations in Free Films
The purpose of this dissertation is to present the derivation of the governing equations for a free-film undergoing phase separation using a long-wavelength approximation to the Navier-Stokes equations coupled with the Cahn-Hilliard equation for phase transformation in a binary liquid. The equations are derived for two cases, ...
