Plasma assisted inkjet printing of silver lines. #printing

Inkjet printing technology are seen as novel techniques for the deposition of functional materials.  An example in the area of printed electronics is silver, as it exhibits high conductivity and reduced influence of corrosion due to the formation of conductive oxides. Stabilized nano-particles may be dispersed in organic solvents or water, and steps must be taken to avoid particles clogging …

Broom in the sky. Plasma propulsion to remove debris from orbit. #tech

There are 15,000 traceable objects orbiting earth representing 6000 tons of material.  There is now a real need for debris removal. The broom in the sky. This space craft sweeps debris using a plasma generated ion beam. The paper shows detailed modelling of the process showing problems like back-scattering of ions and charging of the …

The Wheatstone bridge and related matters, like what is your greatest achievement in life?

Wheatstone (1802-1875) is a famous UK physicist.  He is best known for the Wheatstone bridge a device to measure resistance.  Using an AC or RF voltage the bridge can also measure impedance. It is here that my story begins.  Impedance is the ratio of voltage to current flowing in a device.  When current is impeded …
