  1. BackgroundAs photovoltaic modules experience price declines, approaches that increase the value of photovoltaics by reducing the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE; defined as the lifetime energy cost divided by the lifetime energy production) are of increasing interest. Further, photovoltaic (PV) modules integrated with other components to provi...

  3. Spatial changes during building construction usually manifest as deviations between the as-designed model and the as-built conditions. These deviations can lead to errors that result in delays and additional costs. Project engineers often spend significant time, money, and resources to manually track and analyze changes between the as-designed mode...

  5. Due to the ease of application and their desirable properties, epoxies are one of the most commonly used thermoset polymers. They can be used in dental fillings, wind turbines, adhesives, corrosion protectants, and so much more. The reason why epoxy resins are available for such a large range of applications is due to the nature of epoxy structure ...

  6. Wearable biomedical devices hold the promise of early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of a number of diseases. Because they are non-invasive, they have the potential to help patients and clinicians by providing continuous monitoring prior to the onset of more severe symptoms. These devices often utilize silicon wafer-based microelectronic compo...

  7. Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) have gained increased attention over the last four decades because they offer intuitive control in an abundance of applications where other interfaces are insufficient or impractical. Current technologies require lengthy training sessions until users achieve an acceptable level of control. Otherwise, users only have ...
