  • Oliphant, CJ; Arendse, CJ; Malgas, GF; Motaung, DE; Muller, TFG; Knoesen, D (American Scientific Publishers, 2009-10)
    This paper reports on the deposition of crystalline single-helix carbon microcoils, in the as-deposited state, by the hot-wire chemical vapor deposition process without any special preparation of nano-sized transition metal ...
  • Wen, L; Wu, Z; Luo, H; Song, R; Lia, F (ECS, 2015)
    Spinel Li(sub4)Ti(sub5)O(sub12) has become an alternative material to replace graphite anodes in terms of solving safety issues and improving battery life-time. Unfortunately, as Li(sub4)Ti(sub5)O(sub12) is an insulator, ...
  • Gonçalves, DP (International Council on Systems Engineering South Africa, 2015-09)
    The standard definition (ISO 15288, 2008) of the concept of a system is not complete and is the definition of a closed system. Such a definition is inadequate for systems engineering. A use-based definition is proposed ...
  • Steyn, JM; Odendaal, JW; Joubert, J (Progress in Electromagnetics Research (PIER), 2009)
    Paper presents a dual-band dual-polarized antenna array design for WLAN applications. Four double-dipole elements are orthogonally interleaved to facilitate operation in both the standard WLAN frequency bands (IEEE 802.11b ...
  • Paige-Green, P (Springer Science & Business Media, 2007-02)
    One of the most important materials for the construction of high quality pavement layers in roads in South Africa is the Basic Crystalline group of rocks. The major deposits of these materials are associated with the ...
  • de Wet, p; Mather, A; Theron, A (2010-10)
    This presentation provides a short background and history of the Durban Bay monitoring area, and then progresses to providing maps of the areas monitored. Beach survey data is discussed, and the effects of sandmining touched on.
  • Hole, BJ; Von Glehn, HF (1998-03)
    The project was directed towards bord and pillar working by mechanised miners operating in larger section roadways, where the problem of scrubber capture tends to be greatest owing to the limited size of the zone of influence ...
  • Belle, BK (2002-02)
    This report describes research project COL 807 which was formulated to find ways of keeping down the dust in thick-seam wall operations to concentration levels of less than 5 mg/m3 and to minimize the dust exposure of ...
  • Bembe, M; Dludla, AG; Ngwenya, D; Mekuria, F (River Publishers, 2015-07)
    DVB-NGH (Digital Video Broadcasting-Next Generation Handheld) is the next generation technology for mobile TV broadcasting. It integrates both satellite and terrestrial techniques, which is vital in supporting rich media ...
  • Wall, K; Manus, A; Moodley, K; Boshoff, L; Ottermann, A (Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA), 2008-05)
    This paper describes the steady progress that the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) has been making with formulating a national water services infrastructure asset management (IAM) strategy. A "scan" of the ...
  • Cummings, F (2009-11)
    This presentation gives an overview of the background of dye solar cell research, specifically the CSIR dye solar cell research, and collaborations and links.
  • Cummings, F (CSIR, 2009-11-09)
    This presentation gave an overview of the background of dye solar cell research, specifically the CSIR dye solar cell research, and collaborations and links.
  • Le Roux, Lukas J (2006-02)
    Various institutions are doing research on photovoltaics in South Africa. Although the CSIR is the only one that does research on DSC's there is significant support from the different universities. In the presentation a ...
  • Le Roux, Lukas J; Hietkamp, S; Cummings, F (CSIR, 2008-11)
    An attractive and cheaper alternative to siliconbased photovoltaic (PV) cells for the conversion of solar light into electrical energy is to utilise dyeadsorbed, large-band-gap metal oxide materials such as TiO2 to absorb ...
  • Le Roux, Lukas J; Arendse, C; Hietkamp, S; Knoesen, D (2005-07)
    A novel system that harnesses solar energy is the nano-crystalline TiO dye-sensitised solar cell (DSC), in conjunction with several new concepts, such as nanotechnology and molecular devices. An efficient and low-cost cell ...
  • Le Roux, Lukas J; Arendse, C; Hietkamp, S (2006-02)
    As fuel sources become depleted, there is an increasing need to turn to alternative sources of energy. Of particular interest, especially in southern Africa, is solar energy, since it is clean and abundant. A novel system ...
  • Newell, N; Neal, W; Pandelani, T; Reinecke, D; Proud, WG; Masouros, SD (Canadian Center of Science and Education (CCSE), 2016-01)
