15245 – Auto Tuning of Powered Lower Limb Prosthesis Abstract Powered lower limb prostheses provide self-powered actuation capabilities comparable to biological systems, however, amputees could not take full advantages of the powered lower limb prostheses unless control parameters of the prostheses are fine-tuned for each individual. Currently, these control parameters are manually tuned by... Read More
15073 – Ultrabright, Water Soluble BODIPY Fluorophores as Tunable Fluorescent Biomarkers Abstract BODIPY based fluorophores are important tools in a variety of bio-imaging application due to their superior spectral characteristics. They exhibit extraordinary optical properties, such as high molar extinction coefficients, high fluorescent quantum yields, sharp excitation and emission peaks, and... Read More
15119 – Aqueous Photovoltaic Elastomeric Gels Using Pentablock Copolymer Abstract Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have been widely studied and developed due to several advantages, such as low cost-to-performance ratio, low cost of fabrication, functionality at wide angles and low intensities of incident light, and low weight. For the practical application of DSSCs, it is important to replace... Read More
15083 – Heintooga is characterized by its late mid-season to late season ripening, and medium to large fruit size that produces an average of less than 1 seed per berry. This striking characteristic makes Heintooga a berry cultivar of great commercial interest, due to its seedless nature. Heintooga’s fully ripe fruit is firm, sweet in flavor, highly aromatic, and shows fruit cracking and fruit with... Read More
15071 – Abstract Rapid growth in the solar power industry has created an increase in demand for qualified and certified professionals. As a result, a curriculum is needed to equip these professionals with a comprehensive knowledge of photovoltaics. Most of the current programs are limited and only present a general overview or are limited to specific topics. The NC Clean Energy Technology Center... Read More
A Software Method of Improving Learning Outcomes for Each Student in a Course in an Affordable Manner - Utilizing Economies of Scale
15125 – Abstract Learning systems have been successfully employed to plan, implement, and assess specific learning processes in both academia and corporate environments. Typically, these systems provide instructors with ways to create and deliver content, monitor student participation, and assess student performance. The leading learning management systems only look at log data in the LMS and other... Read More
14237 – A Novel Method of Creating Single-Phase Complex Oxides with Entropic Stabilization Abstract The family of complex oxides exhibits a rich variety of physical phenomena that are promising for novel applications in a broad range of fields such as energy, thermoelectric technology, and thin film technology. Traditionally, new complex oxide materials have been developed through methods... Read More
Fabrication of Vacuum-Sealed Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (CMUTs) Using Anodic Bonding
15153 – Novel fabrication method for vacuum-sealed capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducer (CMUT) arrays. Abstract Capacitive micromachined ultrasonic transducers (CMUTs) have demonstrated great promise for next-generation ultrasound technology. They have promising applications for various uses such as medical imaging, ultrasound therapy, and chemical gas sensors. However, conventional... Read More
15141 – Abstract Near infrared optical sensors are used extensively in medical practice to noninvasively monitor changes in arterial oxygen saturation, blood volume, and other physiological parameters. Veterinary devices are physically attached to the skin, requiring hair removal from the animal and resulting in a likelihood of detachment and general resistance by the animals (when conscious) due...

14120 – Abstract In recent years, wide-bandgap semiconductors such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) have gained importance in the semiconductor industry. This development is due in part to their ability to operate with reduced losses at higher voltages, frequencies, and temperatures than conventional Silicon (Si)-based devices. However, a challenge currently faced in the... Read More
