Soot-in-oil 3D volume reconstruction through the use of electron tomography: an introductory study (2015)
Journal Article
La Rocca, A., Campbell, J., Fay, M., & Orhan, O. (2016). Soot-in-oil 3D volume reconstruction through the use of electron tomography: an introductory study. Tribology Letters, 61(1), doi:10.1007/s11249-015-0625-z

Understanding soot nanoparticle interaction with oil additives and the causes of soot-induced thickening would assist in lubricant formulation, prolonging engine life and improving engine efficiency. Three-dimensional measurement of soot structures i... Read More about Soot-in-oil 3D volume reconstruction through the use of electron tomography: an introductory study.

Electron spin coherence near room temperature in magnetic quantum dots (2015)
Journal Article
Moro, F., Turyanska, L., Wilman, J., Fielding, A. J., Fay, M. W., Granwehr, J., & Patanè, A. (2015). Electron spin coherence near room temperature in magnetic quantum dots. Scientific Reports, 5, https://doi.org/10.1038/srep10855

We report on an example of confined magnetic ions with long spin coherence near room temperature. This was achieved by confining single Mn 2+ spins in colloidal semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) and by dispersing the QDs in a proton-spin free matrix....

Mid-infrared photoluminescence in small core fiber of praseodymium-ion doped selenide-based chalcogenide glass (2015)
Journal Article
Tang, Z., Furniss, D., Fay, M., Sakr, H., Sójka, L., Neate, N., …Seddon, A. B. (2015). Mid-infrared photoluminescence in small core fiber of praseodymium-ion doped selenide-based chalcogenide glass. Optical Materials Express, 5(4), 870-886. doi:10.1364/OME.5.000870

Rare earth (RE)-ion doped chalcogenide glasses are attractive for mid-infrared (MIR) fiber lasers for operation >4 μm. Our prior modeling suggests that praseodymium (Pr) is a suitable RE-ion dopant for realizing a selenide-based, chalcogenide-glass,...

Characterisation of soot in oil from a gasoline direct injection engine using Transmission Electron Microscopy (2015)
Journal Article
La Rocca, A., Bonatesta, F., Fay, M., & Campanella, F. (2015). Characterisation of soot in oil from a gasoline direct injection engine using Transmission Electron Microscopy. Tribology International, 86, 77-84. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.triboint.2015.01.025

In this work, an investigation of soot-in-oil samples drawn from the oil sump of a gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine was carried out. Soot particulate was characterised in terms of size, distribution and shape of the agglomerates, and internal s...

Biomaterial modification of urinary catheters with antimicrobials to give long-term broadspectrum antibiofilm activity. Journal of Controlled Release, 202, 57-64. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jconrel.2015.01.037

Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is the commonest hospital-acquired infection, accounting for over 100,000 hospital admissions within the USA annually. Biomaterials and processes intended to reduce the risk of bacterial colonizatio...
