Oxygen plasma treatment has been used extensively to bond polydimethyl siloxane to polydimethyl siloxane or glass in the rapid prototyping of microfluidic devices. This study aimed to improve the bonding quality of polydimethyl siloxane to passivated silicon using oxygen plasma treatment, and also to evaluate the bonding quality. Four types of passivated(More)
While evaluating the impact of iron nanoparticles (NPs) on terrestrial plants we realized potential of root system of intact plants to form orange–brown complexes constituted of NPs around their roots and at bottom/side of tubes when exposed to FeCl3. These orange–brown complexes/plaques seen around roots were similar to that reported in wetland plants(More)
Mid-infrared (MIR) spectroscopy in attenuated total reflectance (ATR) mode was used for quantifying ethanol, sucrose, and tartaric acid in alcoholic beverages. One hundred synthetic samples were prepared with different ethanol, sucrose, and tartaric acid concentrations. Experiments were carried out on Bio-Rad 175 C FTS using an ATR accessory. Spectra were(More)
Moisture content in commercially available milk powder was investigated using near infrared (NIR) diffuse reflectance spectroscopy with an Indian low-cost dispersive NIR spectrophotometer. Different packets of milk powder of the same batch were procured from the market. Forty-five samples with moisture range 4-10% were prepared in the laboratory. Spectra of(More)
Potential of root system of plants from wide range of families to effectively reduce membrane impermeable ferricyanide to ferrocyanide and blue coloured 2,6-dichlorophenol indophenol (DCPIP) to colourless DCPIPH2 both under non-sterile and sterile conditions, revealed prevalence of immense reducing strength at root surface. As generation of silver(More)
The impact of pH and ionic strength on the mobility (individual and co-transport) and deposition kinetics of TiO2 and ZnO NPs in porous media was systematically investigated in this study. Packed column experiments were performed over a series of environmentally relevant ionic strengths with both NaCl (0.1-10 mM) and CaCl2 (0.01-0.1mM) solutions and at pH(More)
The EEG frequency bands are brain rhythms that indicate the activity level of the brain. This paper investigates the effects of the sub-band frequency on the classification of motor imagery of hand movements. Ten sub-bands of 10Hz width between 0 to 100 Hz are chosen. Band power features of the sub-bands are classified using a neural classifier. Motor(More)
