With the advent of information and communication technologies (ICT), the cost effective, robust and accurate sensors are becoming important elements of internet of things (IoT). Polymeric composite sensors that utilize carbon nanoparticulates, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphenes can provide unique advantages. The sensing mechanism is attributed to the effect of inter-CNT conductivity through ... Read more about "Nanocomposite based Sensing and Monitoring"

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Electron cryotomography (ECT) enables intact cells to be visualized in 3D in an essentially native state to macromolecular (~4 nm) resolution. It has allowed us to visualize the structures of macromolecular machines in their native context inside intact cells. In many cases, such machines cannot be purified intact for in vitro study. ...

BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Intergenic long noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) are the largest class of transcripts in the human genome and their transcription is pervasive in higher eukaryotes. Functional and evolutionary analyses together with extensive characterization of a handful of lincRNAs support the general consensus that these transcripts contribute to the regulation of gene expression programs and ...

An IMT Talk Calorimetry has long been used to study chemical reactions and phase transitions in materials. The technique finds its origin in the mid-18th century when Scottish physician Joseph Black discovered the notion of latent heat and Lavoisier developed an ice calorimeter to measure the amount of heat given off during combustion of carbon ...
