Comparison between discrete dipole approximation and other modelling methods for the plasmonic response of gold nanospheres
(Springer Science+Business Media, 2014-05)
We investigate the plasmonic response of gold nanospheres calculated using discrete dipole approximation validated against the results from other discretization methods, namely the finite-difference time-domain method and ...
JQSRT impact factor and Elsevier Benedict and Poynting Awards
We are very pleased to inform the JQSRT readers and authors of several important recent developments about the Journal. First of all, according to the ISI Journal Citation Reports database, the 2011 Impact Factor for JQSRT ...
Subcooled flow boiling heat transfer of γ-Al2O3/water nanofluids in horizontal microtubes and the effect of surface characteristics and nanoparticle deposition
In this study, subcooled flow boiling heat transfer characteristics of nanofluids were investigated at micro scale. For this purpose, the effect of γ-Al2O3 (gamma-alumina) nanoparticles with an average solid diameter of ...
Absorption suppression of silver nanoparticles in the presence of an AFM tip: A harmonic oscillator model
We numerically calculated the optical absorption of silver nanoparticles (AgNP) in the presence of metallic and dielectric AFM probes, illuminated by transverse magnetic (TM) polarized, total internal reflected waves. ...
Entropy generation analysis of laminar flows of water-based nanofluids in horizontal minitubes under constant heat flux conditions
(MDPI AG, 2018-04)
During the last decade, second law analysis via entropy generation has become important in terms of entropy generation minimization (EGM), thermal engineering system design, irreversibility, and energy saving. In this ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of inlet temperature effect on convective heat transfer of γ-Al2O3/Water nanofluid flows in microtubes
(Taylor & Francis, 2018)
Nanofluids are the combination of a base fluid with nanoparticles with sizes of 1–100 nm. In order to increase the heat transfer performance, nanoparticles with higher thermal conductivity compared to that of base fluid ...
Effect of electrostatic stabilization on thermal radiation transfer in nanosuspensions: Photo-thermal energy conversion applications
Solar thermal collectors are among the most important photo-thermal energy conversion systems. Effectiveness of these systems is measured by the ability of working fluid to absorb incident radiative energy. Although ...
Solar radiation exergy and quality performance for Iraq and Turkey
(Inderscience Enterprises Ltd., 2018)
The present study is conducted with two primary objectives: First, a new formulation for the maximum efficiency of the solar radiation conversion is developed by considering the radiative energy transfer between two surfaces ...
A biomimicry design for nanoscale radiative cooling applications inspired by Morpho didius butterfly
(Springer Nature Publishing AG, 2018-11-15)
In nature, novel colors and patterns have evolved in various species for survival, recognizability or mating purposes. Investigations of the morphology of various butterfly wings have shown that in addition to the pigmentation, ...
