Reduction in Soot Emission with Micro-Combustion

This study aims to analyze the effect of temperature on critical sooting equivalence ratio, precursor formation, soot inception and growth. A propane/air mixture at atmospheric pressure with temperatures ranging from 750-1000℃ was investigated using a micro flow reactor of diameter 3.6mm, equivalence ratios of 1-5.5 and inlet flow rates of 10-300sccm. The gas species were […]

AFM Cantilever Based Near Field Radiation Heat Transfer Measurement

Planck’s theory of blackbody radiation imposes a limit on the maximum radiative transfer between two objects at a given temperature. The objective of the project is to measure the near field radiation between a silica microsphere and a silica substrate, compare it with the theoretical calculations. A custom-designed atomic force microscope (AFM) is being used […]

Synthesis and Characterization of Dual-Phase Inorganic Membranes

Over a third of CO2 emissions in the U.S can be traced to fossil fuel combustion. The impact of this harmful greenhouse gas can be mitigated with carbon capture and storage technology. Mixed ionic-electronic conducting (MIEC) dual-phase membranes are capable of highly selective CO2 separation at high temperatures and can be used for such capture […]
