    The electrical properties of screen-printed TiO2 based thick films were explored in terms of gamma radiation influence. Screen-printed pn-heterojunctions and resistors were exposed to γ- radiation from a 137Cs source ...
  • O'Doherty, Jim; Henricson, Joakim; Nilsson, Gert E.; Anderson, Chris; Leahy, Martin J. (Society of Photo‑Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2007)
    This article describes the theoretical development and design of a real-time microcirculation imaging system, an extension from a previously technology developed by our group. The technology utilises polarisation spectroscopy, ...
  • Korostynska, Olga; Arshak, Khalil; Gill, Edric I.; Arshak, Arousian (MDPI, 2007)
    This paper reviews current state-of-the-art methods of measuring pH levels that are based on polymer materials. These include polymer-coated fibre optic sensors, devices with electrodes modified with pH-sensitive polymers, ...
  • O'Mahony, Charlie; Ul Haq, Ehtsham; Silien, Christophe; Tofail, Syed A.M. (MDPI, 2019)
    As the industry and commercial market move towards the optimization of printing and additive manufacturing, it becomes important to understand how to obtain the most from the materials while maintaining the ability to ...
  • Singh, Raghvendra Pratap; Hidalgo, Tania; Cazade, Pierre-André; Darcy, Raphael; Cronin, Michael; Dorin, Irina; O'Driscoll, Caitrionia M.; Thompson, Damien (American Chemical Society, 2019)
    Functionalized cyclodextrin molecules assemble into a wide variety of superstructures in solution, which are of interest for drug delivery and other nanomaterial and biomaterial applications. Here we use a combined simulation ...
  • Enfield, Joey; O'Doherty, Jim; Leahy, Martin J. (SPIE - Society of Photo‑Optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2007)
    Biomedical optics and photomedicine applications are challenged by the turbid nature of most biological tissue systems. This nature limits the penetration depth of light into the tissue. Optical clearing improves the ...
  • Garrigues, Alvar R.; Yuan, Li; Wang, Lejia; Mucciolo, Eduardo R.; Thompson, Damien; del Barco, Enrique; Nijhuis, Christian A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
    We present a theoretical analysis aimed at understanding electrical conduction in molecular tunnel junctions. We focus on discussing the validity of coherent versus incoherent theoretical formulations for single-level ...
  • Mitchell-Williams, Tom B.; Baskys, Algirdas; Guo, Yina; Hopkins, Simon C.; Bangert, Ursel; Molodyk, Alexander; Petrykin, Valery; Gomory, Fedor; Frolek, Lubomir; Glowacki, Bartek A. (IEEE Computer Society, 2017)
    If coated conductors are to be used in large-scale ac applications such as motors and generators, energy losses must be minimised. Hysteretic ac losses can be reduced by dividing the coated conductor into filaments. In ...
  • Kumbham, Mahendar; Mouras, Rabah; Mani, Aladin; Daly, Susan; O'Dwyer, Kevin; Toma, Andrea; Bianchini, Paolo; Diaspro, Alberto; Liu, Ning; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Silien, Christophe (Optical Society of America, 2017)
    We have experimentally investigated the enhancement in spatial resolution by image subtraction in mid-infrared central solid-immersion lens (c-SIL) microscopy. The subtraction exploits a first image measured with the c-SIL ...
  • Petchsing, Cattleya; Quill, Nathan; Joyce, Jennifer T; Ní Eidhin, Deirdre; Oboroceanu, Daniela; Lenihan, Catherine; Gao, Xin; Lynch, Robert P.; Buckley, Noel (Electrochemical Society, 2016)
    The ultraviolet-visible spectra of catholytes for vanadium flow batteries (VFBs) were measured and analyzed for a range of V-IV:V-V ratios and vanadium concentrations. Using a model of V2O33+ in equilibrium with VO2+ and ...
  • Amarandei, George; Clancy, Ian; O'Dwyer, Colm; Arshak, Arousian; Corcoran, David (American Chemical Society, 2014)
    Thin and ultrathin polymer films combined with nanoparticles (NPs) are of significant interest as they are used in a host of industrial applications. In this paper we describe the stability of such films (hpoly ≤ 30 nm) ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter; Lehner, Roman; Thompson, Damien; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara; Mayer, Michael (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Surface contamination and the formation of water bridge at the nanoscopic contact between an atomic force microscope tip and cell surface limits the maximum achievable spatial resolution on cells under ambient conditions. ...
  • Cao, Liang; Yuan, Li; Yang, Ming; Nerngchamnong, Nisachol; Thompson, Damien; Yu, Xiaojiang; Qi, Dong-Chen; Nijhuis, Christian A. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2019)
    Understanding the influence of structural properties on the electronic structure will pave the way for optimization of charge transport properties of SAM devices. In this study, we systematically investigate the supramolecular ...
  • Pita, Isabel A.; Kumbham, Mahendar; Schmidt, Michael; Gleeson, Matthew; Ryan, Kevin M.; Silien, Christophe; Liu, Ning (Optical Society of America, 2018)
    The optimum geometry for waveguide propagation was determined by comparing bowtie and semicircle antenna cuts to a standard plain waveguide with a 635 nm laser. The results of both experimental data and COMSOL simulations ...
  • Rice, Daragh (University of Limerick, 2018)
    The swift, unambiguous identification of disease markers in low concentrations is fundamental to early detection and good prognosis. Immunoassays, which are analytical disease diagnostic tests, provide quantitative recognition ...
  • Ziaee, Ahmad (University of Limerick, 2016)
    Three analogues of the SIFSIX-3-M family, namely SIFSIX-3-Zn, SIFSIX-3-Ni, and SIFSIX-3-Cu were investigated using theoretical methods to determine the effect of pore-size and pore-chemistry on the adsorption of CO2 in ...
