By shearing electrorheological (ER) fluids between two concentric cylinders, we show a reversible shear thickening of ER fluids above a low critical shear rate (<1 s(-1)) and a high critical electric field strength (>100 V/mm), which can be characterized by a critical apparent viscosity. Shear thickening and electrostatic particle interaction-induced(More)
A structure parameter, Sn = η(c)γ/τ(E), is proposed to represent the increase of effective viscosity due to the introduction of particles into a viscous liquid and to analyze the shear behavior of electrorheological (ER) fluids. Sn can divide the shear curves of ER fluids, τ/E(2) versus Sn, into three regimes, with two critical values Sn(c) of about 10(-4)(More)
Gecko-inspired surfaces are smart dry adhesive surfaces that have attracted much attention because of their wide range of potential applications. However, strong frictional force, rather than adhesive force, is frequently targeted in most of research in this area. In this study, the interfacial adhesive and frictional properties of a gecko-inspired(More)
Despite successful fabrication of gecko-inspired fibrillar surfaces with strong adhesion forces, how to achieve an easy-removal property becomes a major concern that may restrict the wide applications of these bio-inspired surfaces. Research on how geckos detach rapidly has inspired the design of novel adhesive surfaces with strong and reversible adhesion(More)
Adjustable zero-phase delay and equiphase control are demonstrated in single and multilayer dielectric particle arrays with high index and low loss. The polarization-independent near-zero permeability is the origin of the wave control near the first Mie magnetic resonance. The proposed design paves the way for subwavelength devices and opens up new avenues(More)
The mechanical behaviors of microstructures and micro-devices have drawn the attention from researchers on materials and mechanics in recent years. To understand the rule of these behaviors, the deformation measurement techniques with micro/nanometer sensitivity and spatial resolution are required. In this paper, a micro-marker identification method is(More)
In recent years, a variety of film thickness measurement techniques for copper chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) are subsequently proposed. In this paper, the eddy-current technique is used. In the control system of the CMP tool developed in the State Key Laboratory of Tribology, there are in situ module and off-line module for measurement subsystem.(More)
Plasmonic focusing was investigated in concentric rings with a central pillar under linearly polarized illumination with a specific incident angle. When changing the incident angle of linearly polarized beam between 6 and 15 degree away from the normal direction, the focal spot size can keep a steady value of 37 nm, smaller than the focal spot with the(More)
The self-assembled multilayers have been studied by many researchers to modify the surfaces of artificial implants for increasing biocompatibility. The accurate mechanical properties of the film can only be obtained from the experimental results using appropriate theoretical models. As the film is composed of both solid polymers and fluid, this paper(More)
