Minimal intestinal epithelial cell toxicity in response to short- and long-term food-relevant inorganic nanoparticle exposure
McCracken, Christie (2015-02)
Toxicity of commercial nanoparticles of titania, silica and zinc oxides is being investigated in this in vitro study. Particles of these compositions are found in many food items and thus this study is directed towards ...
Electron Channeling Contrast Imaging: Rapid Characterization of Semiconductors
Deitz, Julia (2015-02)
In recent years, solar power has begun to approach cost-competitiveness with conventional power sources due to improvements in efficiency, manufacturing, and economies of scale. However, much of this advancement is reaching ...
Monte Carlo Simulation of Sunlight Transport through Solar Trees – a New Paradigm for Improving Sunlight Capture Efficiency
Verma, Navni (2015-02)
Solar photovoltaic (PV) cells arranged in complex 3D leaf-like configurations—referred to as a solar tree—can potentially collect more sunlight than traditionally used flat configurations. It is hypothesized that this could ...
