Microfluidics and Lab on a Chip

Microfluidic factor and reactor Microfluidic devices exploit the physical and chemical properties of liquids and gases at a microscale. Microfluidic devices offer several benefits over conventionally sized systems. Microfluidics allow the analysis and use of less volume of samples, chemicals and reagents reducing the global fees of applications. Many operations can be executed at the same […]

Nanofabrication and Microfabrication

Nanofabrication and Microfabrication of Functional Surfaces Nanofabrication/Microfabrication comprises the use of a set of manufacturing tools based on photolithographic techniques commonly used for making IC or VLSI in the electronics industry. Nanofabrication/Microfabrication is also common key technology in the promising new fields such as MEMS (microelectro-mechannical systems), μTAS (micro total analytical systems), and μFLUMS (micro fluidics and molecules) […]

Flexible Printed Electronics

Flexible Printed Electronics Printed electronics is a set of printing methods used to create electrical devices on various substrates. Printing typically uses common printing equipment suitable for defining patterns on material, such as screen printing, flexography, gravure, offset lithography, and inkjet. By electronic industry standards. Electrically functional electronic or optical inks are deposited on the substrate, creating active or passive devices, such as thin […]

Coating and Printing

Coating, Adhesive and Printing A coating is a covering that is applied to the surface of an object, usually referred to as the substrate. The purpose of applying the coating may be decorative, functional, or both.  Coatings may be applied as liquids, gases or solids e.g. Powder coatings.  Paints and lacquers are coatings that mostly have dual uses of protecting the substrate and being decorative, although some […]

Surface Chemistry in Agriculture Applications

Surface chemistry in agriculture applications Surface chemistry designs for sorptives in fertilizers and sorbents in Soils to achieve the optimized harvest.  Increasing the retention of nutrients by agricultural soils is of great interest to minimize losses of nutrients by leaching and/or surface charges. other applications of surface chemistry in agriculture will be seen in pesticide or insecticide designs.  […]
