This paper presents the development of tactile sensors using the sol-gel process to deposit a PZT thin-film from 250 nm to 1 μm on a flexible stainless steel substrate. The PZT thin-film tactile sensor can be used to measure human pulses from several areas, including carotid, brachial, finger, ankle, radial artery, and the apical region. Flexible PZT(More)
In this study, electron beam lithography, rather than the most popular method, chemical synthesis, is used to construct periodical TiO(2) nanowires for a gas sensor with both robust and rapid performance. The effects of temperature on the sensing response and reaction time are analyzed at various operation temperatures ranging from 200 to 350 °C. At the(More)
A precisely controlled metallic nanomesh was fabricated by using nanosphere lithography to pattern the silver thin film to form hexagonal nanohole arrays with excellent uniformity, high conductivity and good transparency. An Alq(3) based OLED, with the silver nanomesh electrode of high ðll factor of 70.2% demonstrated a considerable luminous efðciency of(More)
GaInP/GaAs/Ge triple-junction concentrator solar cells with significant efficiency enhancement were demonstrated with antireflective ZnO nanoneedles. The novel nanostructure was attained with a Zn(NO3)2-based solution containing vitamin C. Under one sun AM 1.5G solar spectrum, conversion efficiency of the triple-junction device was improved by 23.7% via(More)
A photoactivated gas detector operated at room temperature was microfabricated using a simple hydrothermal method. We report that the photoactivated gas detector can detect toluene using a UV illumination of 2 μW/cm². By ultraviolet (UV) illumination, gas detectors sense toluene at room temperature without heating. A significant enhancement of detector(More)
We present a low-cost method to fabricate large-area polycarbonate AR nanostructures to improve the luminous intensity and image clarity of a commercial 2.0-inch display panel in bright condition. The polycarbonate AR nanostructures were nanoimprinted by the graded-density nanoporous silicon template with nanoparticle-catalyzed etching. The average(More)
In this work, deionized (DI) water dissociation was used to treat and change the contact angle of the surface of stainless steel substrates followed by the spin coating of P(VDF-TrFE) material for the fabrication of tactile sensors. The contact angle of the stainless steel surface decreased 14° at -30 V treatment; thus, the adhesion strength between the(More)
The authors demonstrated an efficient color conversion layer (CCL) by using nanosphere arrays in down-converted white organic light-emitting diodes (WOLEDs). The introduced periodical nanospheres not only helped extract the confined light in devices, but also increased the effective light path to achieve high-efficiency color conversion. By applying a CCL(More)
Existing non-invasive lung cancer diagnostic equipment has difficulty in detecting early stage lung cancer as abnormal tissue is smaller than 0.5cm in size. According to studies showing that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from human breath gas can provide biomarkers for human disease, especially for lung cancer [1], a non-invasive method was developed to(More)
