Nano Research [AIJR]) (Amir Abdullah) Sat, 12 Jan 2019 09:36:35 +0000 OJS 60 High Tunability of Size Dependent Optical Properties of ZnO@M@Au (M = SiO2, In2O3, TiO2) Core/Spacer/Shell Nanostructure <p>This theoretical work presents a comparative study of high tunability size dependent optical properties of quantum dot/wire triple layered core shell nanostructure based on the quasi-static approximation of classical electrodynamics embedded in a fixed dielectrics function of host matrix. In this paper, local field enhancement factor (LFEF), refractive index and optical absorbance of nanocomposite are analyzed by varying core size, thickness of spacer and shell as well as dielectrics function of the spacer for the size of the nanocomposite with the range of 20 nm to 40 nm. For both quantum dot and quantum wire triple layered core shell nanostructure (CSNS), there are two resonances in visible and near/in infrared spectral region with high tunability. When the shell thickness increase and therefore increasing the gold content, the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) at the outer interface shifts to higher energy (blue-shifted) and at the inner interface weak peaks and shifted to lower energy (red-shifted). All of three optical properties, depend on core size, dielectrics and thickess of spacer, thickness of shell, shape of composite and filling factor. For the same thickness of spacer and shell of the two configurations, cylindrical triple layered CSNS less pronounced and shifted to infrared red (IR) spectral region which is recommendable for biological and photocatalysis application. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Gashaw Beyene Kassahun ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 12 Jan 2019 09:36:09 +0000 Mechanical Characterization of Nanomaterial Reinforced Aluminum-based Hybrid Nanocomposites <p>Nanostructures are viewed as definitive fiber materials as a reinforcement for matrices because of their impressive properties. Because of their phenomenal mechanical properties Carbon nanotubes (CNTs), graphene (GR), and nanodiamond (ND) have made an enormous proportion of intensity in research over the world. Multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), Graphene, and Nano Diamond were utilized as reinforcements for the current work. Nanostructures with their extraordinary strength, minute size, and high aspect ratio were used as reinforcements in commercial-purity Al matrix. These nanocomposites were manufactured by various different routes such as casting and powder metallurgy techniques. Both of these methods are helpful for the preparation of MWCNTs/Al nanocomposites. These nanocomposites were manufactured with various weight fractions of reinforcements and characterized for their mechanical properties and indicated improved properties in contrast with the base Al matrix. Al/MWCNT nanocomposites, Al/MWCNT/GR hybrid nanocomposites and Al/MWCNT/GR/ND hybrid nanocomposites samples were tested for their mechanical properties such as Young’s modulus, percentage elongation yield strength, and ultimate Strength. Mechanical characterization of these prepared composite samples demonstrated improved strength when compared with the casted samples.</p> Girisha L, Malteshkumar Deshpande, Gururaja Lakshman Naik, Mahanthesh M R ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 25 May 2019 09:46:27 +0000 Green Peptide–nanomaterials; A Friendly Healing Touch for Skin Wound Regeneration <p>The complex phenomenon by which the body responds to any injury of skin or tissue is known as wound healing. A number of phases like exudative, proliferative, and extracellular matrix remodeling are orchestrated events to be occurred involving blood cells, parenchymal cells, and different soluble mediators. Different internal, as well as external factors, regulate the speed and quality of healing. The delay in wound healing process causes the chronic wound or scar formation. At the present moment, the upscale research for identification of agents causing accelerated healing is important. Moreover, the biocompatibility of the accelerators needs to be investigated. Recent biomedical researches for wound care target to provide antimicrobial protection as well as matrix scaffolding for quick repairing of the skin tissue. In recent studies with natural peptides have shown that they are important components in developing the nano-medicines for their usefulness and therapeutic efficiency. New therapeutic formulations can be developed using these natural peptides utilizing different nanoparticle delivery system. This review deals with the developmental study on efficient wound care system where the possible use of natural peptides in combination with nanomaterials has been explored. A trial has also been made on the findings made over the past few years on the use of peptides as tissue regenerating agents through effective wound healing pathway.</p> Debjani Nath, Pratyusha Banerjee, Anugrah Ray, Baishakhi Bairagi ##submission.copyrightStatement## Fri, 22 Mar 2019 16:18:41 +0000
