Wound roll electroactive polymer actuators fabricated with dielectric elastomer (DE) materials provide high bandwidth actuation for robots, minipumps, loudspeakers, valves and prosthetic devices. In this paper, we develop a DE wound roll actuator fabrication process that produces high strain (13%), reliable (3480 cycles at maximum strain), and stiff (157(More)
This work reports a graphene-based nonenzymatic electrochemical sensing platform for the detection of dopamine (DA), uric acid (UA), and ascorbic acid (AA). Graphene oxide, synthesized by modified Hummers method, was thermally reduced in an induction furnace at 200 °C in an Ar-H2 atmosphere to obtain thermally reduced graphene oxide (tRGO). Nanocomposites(More)
The ability of a room-temperature air-atmosphere (RTAA) co-precipitation method to tune the magnetic properties of iron oxide nanoparticles was investigated. It was demonstrated that superparamagnetic nanoparticles with different particle sizes ranging from 7 to 25 nm and magnetic properties with saturation magnetization between 2 to 75 emu g(-1) can be(More)
Hydroxy-methylglutaryl coenzyme-A synthase (HMGS) is a rate-limiting enzyme in the cytoplasmic isoprenoid biosynthesis pathway leading to natural rubber production in Hevea brasiliensis (rubber). Analysis of the structural variants of this gene is imperative to understand their functional significance in rubber biosynthesis so that they can be properly(More)
