By Samuel David Littlejohn

This thesis examines a singular classification of versatile digital fabric with nice capability to be used within the building of stretchable amplifiers and reminiscence elements.  so much remarkably the composite fabric produces spontaneous oscillations that elevate in frequency while strain is utilized to it. during this manner, the cloth mimics the excitatory reaction of pressure-sensing neurons within the human dermis. The composites, shaped of silicone and graphitic nanoparticles, have been ready in numerous allotropic types and functionalized with naphthalene diimide molecules. a scientific learn is gifted of the unfavorable differential resistance (NDR) zone of the current-voltage curves, that's accountable for the material’s lively houses. This research used to be performed as a functionality of temperature, graphite filling fraction, scaling to bare the break-up of the samples into electrical box domain names on the onset of the NDR area, and an electric-field brought about metal-insulator transition in graphite nanoparticles. The influence of molecular functionalization at the miscibility threshold and the current-voltage curves is established. Room-temperature and low-temperature measurements have been played on those composite motion pictures below traces utilizing a remote-controlled, personalized step motor bench.
