The Influence of Carbon Nanotubes on the Thermoelectric Properties of Bismuth Telluride
(Material Science and Technology, 2020 , Professional Masters Project)
Thermoelectric materials are devices that have the ability to convert waste heat to electricity. The widespread use of thermoelectric materials is currently limited by the low value of their figure-of-merit (ZT). Bismuth ...
Relationship between structure, properties and UV/Heat protection behavior of two different types of polyethylene manufactured in Qatar
(Material Science and Technology, 2021 , Professional Masters Project)
Accelerated (artificial) weathering and thermal ageing tests were performed to investigate the effectiveness of different UV/HALS formulations in reducing the UV/heat degradation effect for two different low-density ...
Nutrient consumption over time in plant litter decomposition in drylands: effects of different species mixtures and Photodegradation
(Environmental Sciences, 2021 , Professional Masters Project)
Plant litter decomposition in soil is a dynamic process that is affected and regulated by several factors. Soil microbial activity, light intensity, litter composition and habitat all affect the rate of decomposition ...
