    • Harvesting Temperature Fluctuations as Electrical Energy Using Torsional and Tensile Polymer Muscles 

      Kim, Shi Hyeong; Lima, M©rcio D.; Kozlov, Mikhail E.; Haines, Carter S.; Spinks, Geoffrey M.; Aziz, Shazed; Choi, Changsoon; Sim, Hyeon Jun; Wang, Xuemin; Lu, Hongbing; Qian, Dong; Madden, John D. W.; Baughman, Ray H.; Kim, Seon Jeong (Royal Soc Chemistry, 2015-09-28)
      Diverse means have been deployed for harvesting electrical energy from mechanical actuation produced by low-grade waste heat, but cycle rate, energy-per-cycle, device size and weight, or cost have limited applications. We ...
    • Terahertz Surface Plasmon Polaritons on Freestanding Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Aerogel Sheets 

      Nguyen, T. D.; Liu, S.; Lima, Marcio Dias; Fang, Shaoli; Baughman, Ray H.; Nahata, A.; Vardeny, Z. V. (2012-05-08)
      We demonstrate that multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are capable of supporting surface plasmon-polaritons (SPPs) at terahertz (THz) frequencies. To achieve this, we fabricated sub-100 μm-thick freestanding and highly ...
