Highly ordered 1D TiO2 nanotube arrays are fabricated and applied as nanocontainers and electron transporting material in CH3 NH3 PbI3 perovskite solar cells. The optimized device shows a power conversion efficiency of 14.8%, and improved stability under an illumination of 100 mW cm(-2). This is the best result based on 1D TiO2 nanostructures so far.
Biosensors are devices that combine biological materials and transducers for the detection of sample e.g. drugs, metabolites, pollutants, microbial load, control parameters etc. by converting biochemical signals into measurable physiochemical signals which in turn quantify the amount of sample. There are various types of biosensors depending upon the(More)
This study explored biodiesel production from a low cost, abundant, non-edible lignocellulosic biomass from aqueous extract of Cassia fistula L. (CAE) fruit pulp. The CAE was utilized as substrate for cultivating novel oleaginous yeast Rhodosporidium kratochvilovae HIMPA1. This oleaginous yeast accumulates high amount of triacylglycerides as large(More)
Reported herein is a method that can be used to study the role of cholesterol in the microclustering of a ubiquitous class of membrane receptors, termed integrins. Integrin microclustering was measured using a fluorescence resonance energy transfer assay that does not require direct attachment of fluorescent donors or acceptors onto the integrins, and thus(More)
As the photovoltaic performance of a device is strongly influenced by the morphology of perovskite, achieving precise control over the crystal formation of organic-inorganic halide perovskites synthesized in the ambience of chloride ions has garnered much attention. Although the resulting morphology dictates the performance of the device considerably, the(More)
The study synergistically optimized nitrogen and phosphorous concentrations for attainment of maximum lipid productivity in Chlorella minutissima. Nitrogen and phosphorous limited cells (N(L)P(L)) showed maximum lipid productivity (49.1±0.41mg/L/d), 1.47 folds higher than control. Nitrogen depletion resulted in reduced cell size with large sized lipid(More)
Emission characteristics of metal halide perovskites play a key role in the current widespread investigations into their potential uses in optoelectronics and photonics. However, a fundamental understanding of the molecular origin of the unusual blueshift of the bandgap and dual emission in perovskites is still lacking. In this direction, we investigated(More)
Abstract The average strength of hydrogen bonding interactions at the interface of 40 protein-DNA complexes comprising ∼ 1500 potential hydrogen bonds and their free energies of formation have been estimated employing some recent advances in theoretical treatments of electrostatic interactions. The hydrogen bond spatial frequency distribution shows a(More)
A combination of sterol modulation with cyclodextrins plus fluorescence microscopy revealed a biophysical mechanism behind cholesterol's influence on the diffusion of a ubiquitous class of receptors called integrins. The heterogeneous diffusion of integrins bound to ligand-coated quantum dots was measured using single particle tracking (SPT), and the(More)
