Thermally sprayed metamaterial coatings for photovoltaic energy harvesting applications (#themetacoat) Nov 15, 2018 - Jul 31, 2019
Metamaterials, an artificial periodic two- or three-dimensional configuration, can change propagation characteristics of electromagnetic waves, which in return can cause wave energy to get absorbed into the material. Taking this idea forward, we intro... Read More about Thermally sprayed metamaterial coatings for photovoltaic energy harvesting applications (#themetacoat).

Determining the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Macro-and-Micro-Plastics in Soil and Their Impact on Soil Function Oct 1, 2019 - Jan 31, 2024
Current global production of plastics has reached over 300 million metric tons and is predicted to reach 1200 million metric tons by 2050. Plastics are used widely as they are durable and stable, but these properties have caused an environmental cris...
