Thick rutile layer in titanium for tribological applications.
In the present work, efforts have been made to oxidise the titanium surface, followed by very slow cooling to produce a thick and adherent oxide layer. The response of titanium to oxidation at various temperatures and ...
Memory effect in thin films of insulating polymer and C60 nanocomposites
(Institute of Physics, 2006-01-14)
We describe the use of C60 fullerene molecules as the charge storage medium in an insulating poly-vinyl-phenol (PVP) polymer. The simple metal–organic–metal (MOM) sandwich structure devices deposited from solution exhibit ...

Effect of DC self-bias on the adhesion of diamond-like carbon deposited on metal tracks by RF-PECVD
The adhesion and material properties of diamond-like carbon (DLC), deposited by the radio-frequency plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition technique, can be significantly affected by the substrate material on which the ...
Branch and bound algorithms for rate-distortion optimized media streaming
We consider the problem of rate-distortion optimized streaming of packetized multimedia data over a single quality-of-service network using feedback and retransmissions. For a single data unit, we prove that the problem ...
Determination of density of states in amorphous carbon
Various methods have been employed before to deduce the density of states (DOS) in amorphous carbon. However, further investigations show that capacitance measurements on a metal-insulator-semiconductor structure are an ...
MIMO-OFDM-based DVB-H systems: a hardware design for a PAPR reduction technique
Digital video broadcasting - handheld (DVB-H) is the technology driving mobile TV, which uses orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems with multiple-input multiple-output technology (MIMO). These mobile ...
Unlubricated sliding frictional behaviour of oxide films on plasma nitrocarburised steel.
The sliding frictional behaviour of oxide films formed on low alloy steel by the combined plasma nitrocarburising and post oxidation treatment has been investigated. Unlubricated sliding tests of the as-nitrocarburised ...
Phenomenological model of bone remodeling cycle containing osteocyte regulation loop.
Feature selective validation (FSV) for validation of computational electromagnetics (CEM). Part I – the FSV method
A goal for the validation of computational electromagnetics (CEM) is to provide the community with a simple computational method that can be used to predict the assessment of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) data as it ...
