1. Chowdury, Mosfera Alam. Paper-based microfluidic device with a gold nanoparticle sensor for arsenic detection applied to groundwater in Bangladesh.

Degree: 2016, University of Ontario Institute of Technology

This study demonstrates the development of a paper-based microfluidic device (??PAD) with a gold nanosensor (Au-TA-TG) to detect arsenic contamination in Bangladesh groundwater at the World Health Organization (WHO) guideline level (10 ??g/L). A method has also been developed to prevent interference from alkaline metals (Ca, Mg, K and Na) by altering the pH level on the ??PADs. The heavy metals present in groundwater (Mn, Pb, Ni, Cd, Fe III and Fe II) are also confirmed no interference with the ??PAD arsenic tests. Except for Fe III, which the villagers already remove from their groundwater. The ??PADs are also tested with 24 groundwater samples collected from hand tubewells in three different regions in Bangladesh: Shirajganj, Manikganj, and Munshiganj, and the results agreed with the results obtained from laboratory testing. The ??PAD arsenic test can provide the first easy-to-read test and capable of detecting arsenic at the WHO guideline level (10 ??g/L). Thus villagers can test their own water sources and be empowered to make decisions about where to obtain the safest water. Advisors/Committee Members: MacDonald, Brendan D..

2. Chakraborty, Soma. Analysis and feasibility of an evaporative cooling system with sessile droplet evaporation to provide cooling for microprocessors.

Degree: 2017, University of Ontario Institute of Technology

The study investigates the cooling requirements for the Intel Xenon Processor and the Intel Core i7-900 Processor using diffusion based evaporation of sessile droplets. An analytical model is developed to determine the capacity of a single layer of droplets to provide sufficient cooling. It is found that a single layer can provide sufficient cooling for the processors with tiny droplets. A numerical model is developed to analyze a tiered system that fits within the space restrictions corresponding to the current heat sinks with larger droplets and fewer of them. The results of the numerical modelling work found that a minimum of 41 posts connecting each of the tiers were required to cool the Xenon Processor and 42 posts for the Core i7-900 Processor. It was also found that a minimum of 3 tiers were required for the Xenon Processor, with a droplet radius of 2 mm, and 4 tiers for the Core i7.
