"Advanced manufacturing is a family of activities that (a) depend on the use and coordination of information, automation, computation, software, sensing, and networking, and/or (b) make use of cutting edge materials and emerging capabilities enabled by the physical and biological sciences, for example nanotechnology, chemistry, and biology. It involves both(More)
The nanoparticle technologies consisting of multiple layers of mixtures of activated carbon and ruthenium (IV) oxide for super capacitors are reported. The mono-particulate layer process described here is a modified Langmuir-Blodgett trough. We report the processes for a spray-coated zinc nanopowder electrode used as a counter-electrode forming a galvanic(More)
The modeling of dependent failures, specifically Common Cause Failures (CCFs), is one of the most important topics in Probabilistic Risk Analysis (PRA). Currently, CCFs are treated using parametric modeling, which is based on historical failure events. Instead of utilizing the existing data-driven approach, this paper proposes the concept of physics-based(More)
A Monte Carlo simulation is reported for analog integrated circuits and is based on the modification of the failure rate of each component due to interaction effects of the failed components. The Monte Carlo technique is the methodology used to treat such circuits, since they are independent of the number of components and the degree of system complexity.(More)
Flexible electronics is an emerging field with potential applications such as large area flexible displays, thin film solar panels, and smart prosthesis, to name a few. Promising future aside, there are challenges associated with flexible electronics including high deformability requirements, needs for new manufacturing techniques and high performance(More)
