Real time monitoring of SEA contaminants by an autonomous Lab-on-a-chip biosensor
ID: 614168
Start date: 2013-12-01, End date: 2017-05-31
Early warning systems that can provide extreme sensitivity with exquisite selectivity are required to assess chemical contamination of estuarine and coastal areas. SEA-on-a-CHIP aims to develop a miniaturized, autonomous, remote and flexible immuno-sensor platform based on a ...

Nitride-based nanostructured novel thermoelectric thin-film materials
ID: 335383
Start date: 2013-10-01, End date: 2018-09-30
My recent discovery of the anomalously high thermoelectric power factor of ScN thin films demonstrates that unexpected thermoelectric materials can be found among the early transition-metal and rare-earth nitrides. Corroborated by first-principles calculations, we have well-f...

Organic Thermoelectric Generators
ID: 307596
Start date: 2013-04-01, End date: 2018-03-31
At the moment, there is no viable technology to produce electricity from natural heat sources (T<200°C) and from 50% of the waste heat (electricity production, industries, buildings and transports) stored in large volume of warm fluids (T<200°C). To extract heat from large vo...

Phase-sensitive optical parametric amplifiers
ID: 291618
Start date: 2012-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
Optical amplifiers are essential in optical communication systems as they compensate loss induced by the transmission fiber ensuring signal integrity of the information being transmitted, as well as in other applications such as spectroscopy. This research proposal deals with...

Novel combustion principle with inherent capture of CO2 
using combined manganese oxides that release oxygen
ID: 291235
Start date: 2012-03-01, End date: 2017-02-28
Conventional CO2 capture processes have significant cost and energy penalties associated with gas separation. Chemical-looping combustion (CLC), an entirely new combustion principle avoids this difficulty by inherent CO2 capture, using metal oxides for oxygen transfer from ai...

The Coevolution of Life and Arsenic in Precambrian Oceans
ID: 336092
Start date: 2013-09-01, End date: 2018-08-31
The ubiquity of arsenic resistant genes across all of life’s variety suggests a close intimacy between arsenic biogeochemistry and evolution, over geological time scales. However, the behaviour of arsenic in past environments where life originated and its impact on our evolut...

Magnonics Using Spin Torque, spin caloritronics, And Nanoplasmonic engineerinG
ID: 307144
Start date: 2013-01-01, End date: 2017-12-31
My overall aim is to develop a Magnonic technology platform where Spintronic, Spin-Caloritronic and Nano-plasmonic devices and structures combine to create ground-breaking functionality from novel interactions between charge, spin, heat and light. With traditional Magnonic st...

Harnessing Proto-Enzymes for Novel Catalytic Functions
ID: 306474
Start date: 2012-10-01, End date: 2017-09-30
Enzymes are Nature’s catalysts, reducing the timescales of the chemical reactions that drive life from millions of years to seconds. There is also great scope for enzymes as biocatalysts outside the cell, from therapeutic and synthetic applications, to bioremediation and even...
