    This article is on microscale flow control, on dynamically shaping flow fields in microfluidic devices to precisely manipulate cells, quantum dots (QDs), and nanowires. Compared to prior methods, manipulating microscopic and nanoscopic objects by flow control can be achieved with simpler and easy-to-fabricate devices, can steer a wider variety of objects, and enables entirely new capabilities such...

    This article focuses on an essential part of a stationary fuel cell-based power plant, namely the reforming unit that produces H2. The reformer is fueled by either CH4 or DME, depending on the catalyst. A detailed dynamic model of the reformer dynamics is derived, which takes into account the spatial distribution of system states such as temperatures and mass fractions. Param... View full abstract»

    The LEGO Mindstorms kit is widely used in many areas of education and research, covering a number of applications from benchtop demonstrations to postgraduate research, laboratories, and projects [1][3]. Although the kit was initially designed as a toy for children over 12 years of age, its use in university courses is increasing yearly. The kit has attracted the interest of people working in many...
