[en] Comparative studies of the specific features of the composition and photoluminescence properties of porous silicon with different morphologies are carried out by infrared and photoluminescence spectroscopy. On the basis of the experimental data and commonly accepted theoretical models, the main factors that influence the photoluminescence intensity and its deterioration upon the exposure of porous silicon to directed radiation in the visible region are established. By the example of porous silicon with 50–100 nm pores, the possibility of improving the above characteristics by chemical treatment in polyacrylic acid is shown.
[en] We report increased radiation in the visible and terahertz (THz) regimes in silicon(Si)-based nanostructures. The nanostructures, Si nanowires (SiNWs) and porous Si (PSi), were synthesized via electroless and electrochemical surface modification, respectively. In particular, picosecond (ps) radiative lifetimes in the order of 250 ps were obtained from time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) measurements. The fast radiative lifetimes are associated with increased surface defect density in PSi. Reflectance measurements confirmed that optical absorption of the nanostructured Si samples increased relative to bulk Si. Both nanostructured Si exhibit THz emission, albeit weaker in PSi due to higher density of defects. An inverse relationship between PL and THz emission strength was therefore observed. Lastly, the wider bandwidth of the THz emission in SiNWs is attributed to the directionality of the transient photocurrent compared to the more disordered carrier transport in PSi.

[en] The object of this invention is a heat exchanger with an anisotropic porous structure. Specifically, this invention concerns a heat exchanger for example, between a gas and a liquid that utilises, for the flow of one of the fluids, a containment at leats partly filled with a porous structure for improving the thermal exchanges between the hot primary fluid and the second fluid to be heated

[en] Combustion in porous media has been widely studied. Many application involving the combustion of porous media has been reported in various way with most consider on numerical works and industrial application. Besides, recent application of porous medium combustion for domestic is the topic of interest among researchers. In this paper, a review was conducted on the combustion of porous media in term of practical application for domestic consumers. Details on the type of fuel used including bio fuel and their system have been search thoroughly. Most of the system have utilized compressed air system to provide lean combustion in domestic application. Some self-aspirating system of porous medium burner was also reported. The application of new technology such as cogeneration by using thermoelectric cells in tandem with porous medium combustion is also revised according to recent work which have already been published. Besides, the recent advances which include coating of porous material is also considered at the end of this paper. (paper)
[en] The flow of a viscous fluid is considered to calculate the permeability of a porous medium with granular solid phase. Under the assumption of periodicity a unit cell which contains solid phase of granular shape is selected on the microscale and the flow field is calculated by solving Stokes problem in which inertial effects are ignored. A Boundary-Vale Problem is obtained by applying the theory of homogenization to slow viscous flow through porous structure on the microscale. It is shown that the permeability is dominantly determined by the flow direction along which the pressure gradient on the macro-scale is imposed. (authors)
[en] We address one key source of the known discrepancies between theory and experiment in poroelasticity, i.e., the fact that Gassmann's equations for the bulk and shear moduli predict that the shear modulus is independent of the saturating fluid properties, whereas it is observed on the contrary that at high enough frequencies the shear modulus can in fact depend on the fluid's elastic properties in many porous materials. One clue to understanding this behavior comes from effective medium theory, which shows that the shear modulus does depend on the fluid properties in many circumstances. In comparison to values predicted by effective medium theory, Gassmann's equations predict different, smaller values for both the effective bulk and shear moduli of porous media. Sorting through these apparent (but not actual) disagreements among theory and theory, and theory and experiment is the main thrust of the paper
[en] The effect of C-C heat flux on Carbon nanotubes (SWCNT/MWCNT) filled with Darcy porous medium with convective conditions is studied numerically. The derived nonlinear ordinary differential equations are non-dimensionalized and worked out numerically with the help of maple softer by RKF-45 method. The scientific results for non-dimensionalized equation are presented for both SWCNT/MWCNT cases. Accouterments of various predominant restrictions on flow and thermal fields are scanned. Computation estimation for friction factor and local Nusselt number are also executed. (paper)
