    DOI: 10.11648/j.nano.20150303.11
    Abstract: A preliminary conceptual design of a new free energy nano reactor is presented. The design is based on the following: A basically topological interpretation of the Casimir effect is given as a natural intrinsic property of the geometrical topological structure of the quantum-Cantorian micro spacetime. This new interpretation compliments the earlier... Show More

    DOI: 10.11648/j.nano.20150303.12
    Abstract: Drilling fluids serve many objectives in a drilling process, including the elimination of cuttings, lubricating and cooling the drill bits, supporting the stability of the hole and preventing the inflow-outflow of fluids between borehole and the formation. However, with increasing production from non-conventional reservoirs, the stability and effec... Show More

    DOI: 10.11648/j.nano.20150303.13
    Abstract: This paper would like to compare the ability of two cellulosic polymers to bind nano titania to polyester fabrics, in order to provide the fabric a self-cleaning property. The fixation of the nano titania on the polyester fabric was explored using Cyclodextrin or Xanthan gum. The photocatalytic activity of TiO2 nanoparticles deposited on the polyes... Show More

    DOI: 10.11648/j.nano.20150303.15
    Abstract: The optical properties of TiO2/CuO core-shell thin films were studied after the as-deposited nanocrystalline core-shell thin films were annealed at different temperatures [373K – 673K]. Orthorhombic nanocrystalline structure induced by thermal annealing for the films as confirmed by XRD analysis was observed. The optical properties were obtained fr... Show More
  • The Cantorian Monadic Plasma behind the Zero Point Vacuum Spacetime Energy
