Tight Focusing Properties of Phase Modulated Longitudinally Polarized Doughnut Gaussian Beam
Authors : K. Prabakaran,K:B. Rajesh,S. Ramachandran,M. Jayaprakash,V. Aroulmoji,


We investigated the focusing properties of a phase modulated radially polarized doughnut Gaussian beam by a high numerical aperture (NA) lens based on vector diffraction theory. We observed that our proposed system generates a sub wavelength focal spot of 0.42λ having large uniform focal depth of 5 λ. This kind of non diffracting focal segments is called as dark channel, which may have...

Pervaporation Modeling of Water-Alcohols Mixtures with the help of Artifical Neural Network
Authors : Mansoor Kazemimoghadam,Zahra Amiri,


The present study considered the amount of water-alcohol separation within the process of pervaporation by use of polymer membranes with the help of Artificial Neural Network modeling. Pervaporation can be utilized for separation of many liquids (in this study, it was used for separation of ethanol and butanol from water). All the mentioned alcohols have purity problems due to azeotropics with...

Effect of Heating on the Crystal Structure of Natural Dolomite
Authors : A. Parveen,P. Nithya,


Dolomite samples were collected from four different locations of Salem, Tamil Nadu and the percentage of dolomite present in these samples were studied using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR). The thermal decomposition behavior of sample which has more percentage of dolomite has been studied by thermogravimetric (TG) and Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA). TG-DTA analyses provide...

Modeling of Pervaporation Process for Dehydration of Alcohols by Polymer Membrane
Authors : Mansoor Kazemimoghadam,Seyed Mohammad Hamed Masjedi,


Modeling of Pevaporation process for water-alcohol separation with polymer membrane was performed using COMSOL Multiphysics software. Modeling was performed for two parts of the membrane and feed channel. For the feed section of the semiconductor, there is a mass transfer and semiconductor transfer term, while only the mass transfer occurs in the membrane. The flux from the membrane was...

Improving the Performance of Solar Photovoltaic Thermal System using Phase Change Materials - Review
Authors : Sachin V. Chavan,D. Devaprakasam,


The increasing fossil fuel prices due to demand for electricity and increasing environmental changes have revitalized the idea to move towards the renewable energy sources. The solar photovoltaic module is one of the most sustainable and effective system. Solar Photovoltaic (PV) cells can absorb only 70-80% incident solar radiations however only small amount of this incident energy converted into...
