Effect of nanofluid on the heat transport capability in an oscillating heat pipe
By combining nanofluids with thermally excited oscillating motion in an oscillating heat pipe (OHP), we developed an ultrahigh-performance cooling device, called the nanofluid oscillating heat pipe.Expand
Surface modification of several dental substrates by non-thermal, atmospheric plasma brush.
Without affecting the bulk properties, a super-hydrophilic surface could be easily achieved by the plasma brush treatment regardless of original hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity of dental substrates tested. Expand

The recent research in discovery of alternative approaches to prevent or treat biofilm formation is discussed and efforts devoted to these technologies could eventually lead to anti-biofilm therapies that are superior to the current antibiotic treatment. Expand

The authors' mechanical testing and fractographic analysis indicated that the relatively good dispersion of HAP nanofibers at low mass fraction is the key reason for the significantly improved biaxial flexural strength, while higher mass fraction of HAPS tends to lead to bundles that cannot effectively reinforce the dental resins or composites and may even serve as defects and thus degrade the resulting dental resin and composite mechanical properties.

It was found that plasma treatment of the peripheral dentin surface for up to 100 s resulted in an increase in the interfacial bonding strength, while prolonged Plasma treatment of dentin surfaces (e.g. 5 min) resulted in a decrease in the Interference bonding strength. Expand
Standing gold nanorod arrays as reproducible SERS substrates for measurement of pesticides in apple juice and vegetables.
Results indicate that SERS coupled with the standing gold nanorod array substrates is a sensitive and reproducible method and can accurately detect pesticides in foods. Expand
Evaluation of plasma treatment effects on improving adhesive-dentin bonding by using the same tooth controls and varying cross-sectional surface areas.
Interface examination using optical and electron microscopy verified that plasma treatment improved the quality of the adhesive-dentin interface by reducing defects/voids and increasing the resin tag length in dentin tubules. Expand
Plasma deactivation of oral bacteria seeded on hydroxyapatite disks as tooth enamel analogue.
Experimental data indicated that a 13-second plasma exposure time completely killed all the bacteria when initial bacterial seeding density on HA surfaces was less than 6.9 x 10(6) cfu/cm2, while shadowing effects from the resulting bacterial debris reduced the plasma deactivation of the underlying bacteria.

Bacterial inactivation using a low-temperature atmospheric plasma brush sustained with argon gas.
This study investigated the bacterial inactivation/sterilization effects of a new atmospheric plasma source, which is a brush-shaped argon glow discharge created under 1 atm pressure and found that such argon atmospheric plasma brush is very effective in destruction of the bacteria cells. Expand
An Optical Emission Study on Expanding Low-Temperature Cascade Arc Plasmas
The optical emission spectra from expanding low-temperature cascade arc plasmas were studied. The objective of this study was to examine the distinctive features of low-temperature cascade arcExpand
