  • KCHS Ski Team Works To Keep Dipnet Beaches Clean

    first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享For the 10th year in a row the Kenai Central High School ski team spent their summer helping to clean the Kenai beaches throughout the Dipnet Season. KCHS Ski Coach Brad Nyquist: “There are a lot of compliments, and every year I get more and more compliments from the people about how clean the beaches are. It’s also really good for our kids to give back to the community.”  Nyquist: “Just a presence down there, doing this, helps remind people that they can also pick things up as well.”  Parents, coaches and students all volunteer their time each summer to participate in the annual clean up efforts. The City of Kenai does pay the ski team a small fee to do the cleanup, which helps support team activities, according to Nyquist. The KCHS ski team picks up trash two times a week while the Kenai personal-use dipnet fishery is open each summer.last_img read more

  • Pen draws flexible circuits using halfmeter long carbon nanotube fibers

Credit: Huang, et al. ©2015 American Chemical Society In the future, the researchers hope to expand the drawing technique to use different types of ink for different purposes.”We are now working on enabling more functions in the fiber,” Wu said. “For example, one possibility is semiconducting fibers drawn from a pen tip for flexible device applications.” (Phys.org)—While it may look like researchers from Tsinghua University in Beijing are sketching out an idea for a circuit on a piece of paper, they’re actually using a special pen that draws real circuits using carbon-nanotube-based ink.center_img When writing, the pen is lifted off the paper to stretch and suspend the fibers, which can then be laid down on the substrate in the desired position. The researchers demonstrated that complex fiber patterns can be drawn by hand, and they predict that even greater precision can be achieved using advanced mechanical devices.The researchers also showed that increasing the polymer concentration of the ink increases the diameter of the nanotube fibers from 300 nm to 3 µm. In general, thinner fibers have better conductivity than thicker ones due to their better fiber orientation. Tests show that the highly conductive carbon nanotube fibers also exhibit excellent mechanical flexibility. At first, the researchers expected that the ultralong carbon nanotube fibers should maintain their conductivity after bending and distortion. Somewhat surprisingly, their tests showed that the fibers actually exhibit an increase in conductivity after bending—about a 30% increase after 1000 bending cycles. The researchers propose that the stress caused by bending deforms the polymers and improves nanotube alignment, which in turn increases conductivity.

DOI: 10.1021/nl504150a Citation: Pen draws flexible circuits using half-meter long carbon nanotube fibers (2015, February 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-02-pen-flexible-circuits-half-meter-carbon.html This technique, called “fiber drawing,” has previously been used to construct patterns, but the fiber length is usually very short at just a few millimeters, and the drawing speed is typically very slow. These drawbacks limit its use in circuit fabrication.In the new study, the researchers demonstrated that their new pen can draw carbon nanotube fibers that are more than a half of a meter long with fast drawing speeds of up to 10 cm/second. Their work is published in a recent issue of Nano Letters.Due to the nanotube fibers’ high conductivity and excellent mechanical flexibility, the researchers predict that the fibers could serve as the fundamental building blocks for a wide variety of flexible electronic devices, such as wearable electronics, flexible touch displays, flexible solar cells, RFIDs, and 3D devices.While the pen itself is an ordinary commercial pen, the ink consists of a combination of electrically conductive carbon nanotube fibers and a viscous polymer solution called polyethylene oxide (PEO). The viscous PEO is highly elastic and mechanically strong, which allows it to pull long nanotube fibers from the solution during the writing process. “The drawing technique allow us to achieve very long carbon nanotube fibers mainly due to the high molecular weight of the polymer and high viscosity of the precursor solution as ink,” coauthor Hui Wu, Associate Professor at Tsinghua University, told Phys.org.

  • What to do if youve booked a flight with Flybmi

    first_imgGet the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailHundreds of passengers have had their travel plans disrupted after airline flybmi suspended all flights, and said it was filing for administration. Customers of the airline, which had operated 17 regional jet aircraft on routes to 25 European cities, have been told not to come to the airport unless they have re-booked flights with alternative providers. Flybmi said it would not be able to purchase, rearrange or reschedule any flights on behalf of customers. An extensive Q&A on the airline’s website – the only page now accessible to customers – lays out various options for those affected. Customers have been advised to contact their payment card issuer to get a refund for flights. Those who have booked through a travel agent or partner airlines are advised to contact their agent or airline. Read MoreMotorist arrested for drink-driving – after crashing into back of lorry on M6   The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said travellers should contact their insurance provider as their policy may include cover for scheduled airline failure. It advised passengers whose flights were part of a package holiday to contact the travel firm they booked with. If the firm holds an ATOL (Air Travel Organiser’s Licence), it is responsible for flight arrangements and must either make alternative flights available so the trip can continue or provide a full refund, the CAA said. Flybmi flights operated out of Aberdeen, Bristol, East Midlands, London Stansted, Newcastle and City of Derry and a number of European airports. The airline said it carried 522,000 passengers on 29,000 flights last year. Read MoreConcerns about drug use near primary school   Rory Boland, travel editor for the consumer body Which?, said: “This is terrible news for flybmi passengers, who will be seeking urgent advice on what steps to take. “Some customers have claimed that tickets were being sold in the hours before the airline went bust, knowing full well those tickets would never be honoured, and passengers will rightly be outraged if this is proved to be the case. “As all future flights have been cancelled, flybmi customers should explore their options for refunds. “If you purchased your flight as part of a package you should be ATOL protected, which means you should get a refund. “However, if you didn’t book as part of a package you may be able to claim the cost back through your travel insurance or credit card issuer, but it depends on your circumstances.” Want to tell us about something going on where you live?
