KAUST master's degree student José Ilton de Oliveira Filho recently won first place at the second edition of the IEEE International Sensors and Measurement Systems Student Contest (IEEE IS&M-SC). IEEE IS&M-SC is a global competition directed at teams of advanced undergraduates, master's degree and Ph.D. students and seeks to stimulate creative ideas for sensor and measuring systems applications.
The present study describes the one-step synthesis of NiO nanosheets and successful surface modification of NiO nanosheets with Au NPs. This surface modification step is vital for an application (i.e., hydrazine sensing), where Au NPs enhance the surface area and provide synergistic effect during the electrocatalytic reaction.
The Asbar World Forum 2018, held in Riyadh, was a meeting that focused on understanding issues associated with transitioning Saudi Arabia's oil-based economy to a knowledge-based one. The aim was to find ways to manage and execute strategies to achieve the objectives of Vision 2030.
