Biography:

Nikolay Plusnin is currently the Chief Researcher in the Institute of Automation and Control Processes of FEB of the RAS, Vladivostok, Russia. He has completed his degree in Doctor of Physical-Mathematical Sciences. His research interests are in nanomaterials for electronics and their structure-phase analysis. He was a Visiting Professor in Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan. Also, he is a Member of the Advisory Board of the international journal e-journal of Surface Science and Nanotechnology. He has published more than 60 scientific articles. His research was supported by Russian Ministry of Education and Science, Academy of Sciences and Government.
 

Abstract:

The result of the initial stages of the formation of a transition metal-silicon contact at room temperature has been analyzed. The contact was formed by physical vaapor deposition. At the growth stage preceding the formation of the first bulk phase of the metal/silicide, a Nanophase Wetting Layer (NWL) of a metal/silicide on a silicon substrate was detected and identified. The detection and identification of NWL was made possible by the technique developed by the author for complex analysis of the structural-chemical and phase state of the surface/interface by Auger Electron Spectroscopy (AES) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS). In addition, this became possible to the development of the low-temperature method of Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) and the formation of metal-silicon contact by this method without mixing at the interface. The detection of NWL fundamentally changed the approach to the formation of a metal contact with a silicon substrate.

Abstract:

The manipulation of the crystalline structure to get the maximum efficiency for a desired application is one of the most important challenges in the nanotechnology development. On the other hand, the shape and size control of the crystalline nanostructures represents another hot topic in designing novel materials with tuned properties. The presented work is splited in three parts. The first one relates about the influence of morphological particularities of titania and tungstanate crystals on the photocatalytic efficiency to decontaminate the polluted water. It is mainly evidenced the importance of the shape controlled nanostructures on the photocatalytic properties as revealed by the morphological and structural characterization of the investigated materials. The second one presents the tunability of the morphological, structural and optical properties of Graphene Oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (r-GO) membranes that was achieved by using different self-assembly time and heat-treatment temperatures, respectively. The particularities of the GO and r-GO membranes will be discussed and correlated in the context of desired applications. The third part will describe the steps performed to understand the graphitization process, i.e. formation of 2D ordered carbon structures, inside the Bi/Fe doped carbon xerogels. This aspect is of an utmost importance having in view that such porous materials can be applied as electrode materials for energy storage and electrochemical sensing applications. In this respect, an exhaustive morphological and structural characterization of the Bi/Fe doped carbon xerogels was performed in order to identify the parameters that influence the activation of catalyzed graphitization.

Biography:

Nadir Yildirim earned his Ph.D. in Forest Resources from the University of Maine, and he is also a graduate of the University of Maine Innovation Engineering Program. He was also a research scholar at Purdue University. He has been working with advanced bio-nanocomposites for over 10 years and also acted as the Program Manager for various development projects in nanocomposites and advanced materials, including studies of fire retardant nanocomposites, water repellent nanocellulose composites, aerogels, bio-based panels and eco-friendly thermal insulation composite foam boards for green buildings. As Co-founder and CEO of Revolution Research Inc., Dr. Yildirim has received grants from the National Science Foundation (NSF), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Maine Technology Institute (MTI) for development of innovative, eco-friendly, and futurist materials. He has been working at Bursa Technical University since 2017 as the Associate Director of Bursa Technology Transfer Office and also as an Assistant Research Professor of Sustainable Forest Bioproducts.

Abstract:

The academicians and researchers work hard to perform unique projects at the universities. They complete the projects successfully and publish papers even books. However, just publishing books or articles is not enough to compete against the future. The commercialization of an idea developed at the universities is no longer a fleeting trend but a strategy being adopted by organizations to maintain their competitive positions. The increased awareness in environmental issues makes this reality more critical in bio-products industry with high demand for the green and sustainable replacement for petroleum-based products. The innovation engineering is a culture that guides researchers to take right actions on the right time to develop meaningfully unique products and convert them to benefit. In this study successfully developed bio-composite technology were brought to industry using innovation engineering concept.

Biography:

Nimrod Israely has completed his PhD in Entomology and is the CEO of Biofeed. Under his leadership, Biofeed has developed the GCFR technology, which enables pest control without spraying. He is known for his hands-on innovative approach and clear view as to the need for a second green revolution.
 

Abstract:

The industrial revolution that started in the mid 18th century was followed by the green revolution which began in the mid 20th century. DDT symbolizes more than anything the beginning of the green revolution, but also the disillusionment from a dream of a never-ending solution to all human problems. The awakening from the DDT dream as the ultimate solution came in less than 20 years since its discovery as a pesticide. This is when its downsides started to be understood. The European green movements and current public concerns about ecological issues is the outcome of that. However, upto now most of the emerging green economy industries struggle to survive and taking the lead looks like a distant dream. This presentation will have the discussion on the hardship, time and the necessary measures we have to take in order to create a flourishing green economy industry. For this presentation the Pest-control industry will be used as a case study to processes occurring in many other emerging green economy industries, including biopolymers.
