Thermophysical and tribological measurements have been performed on carbon nanotube added silicon nitride composites. Higher thermal conductivity values were observed in the case of the sample with CNT than for the reference sample. As was observed from tribological measurements, nanocomposite Si3N4 without carbon nanotubes shows a higher friction coefficient than carbon nanotube - Si3N4. The results of wear study indicate that the Si3N4 ball (used as static partner) was more damaged with…

Semimetallic Graphene for Infrared Sensing.
Using the semimetallic multilayer graphene, IR detection at room temperature is realized using high responsivity and detectivity, and the incident IR can be absorbed directly by the sensing material in the device.


Development of CNT-Silicon Nitrides with Improved Mechanical and Electrical Properties
This work is focusing on exploring preparing processes to tailor the microstructure of carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced silicon nitride-based ceramic composites. Samples with different porosity’s and
Electrical properties of nanoceramics reinforced with ropes of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) were used to convert insulating nanoceramics to metallically conductive composites. Dense SWCNT/Al2O3 nanocomposites with CNT contents ranging from 5.7 to 15
