Faznny Mohd Fudzi, Halimah Mohamed Kamari, Farah Diana Muhammad, Amirah Abd Latif, Zaitizila Ismail
Journal of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (MSCE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/msce.2018.64003
A series of zinc borotellurite glass co-doped with lanthanum and silver oxide with the chemical formula of [{[(TeO2)0.7(B2O3)0.3]0.7(ZnO)0.3}0.96(La2O3)0.04]1-x(Ag2O)x where the molar frac-tion of silver oxide, x = 0.02, 0.04, 0.06, 0.08 and 0.10 had been successfully prepared via the conventional melt-quenching technique. The structural properties of the glasses were unveiled through X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Infra-Red (FTIR) spectroscopy while optical properties of the glasses were investigated with Ultra Violet Visible (UV-Vis) spectropho-toscopy. The short range periodic atomic arrangement in the glass matrix that implies the amorphous nature of the glass was confirmed with the presence of a broad hump in the XRD pattern. On the other hand, the three absorption bands observable in the FTIR spectra had proven the existence of BO4, BO3 as well as TeO4 units in the glass network. The absorbance values retrieved from UV-Vis spectroscopy were utilized to calculate the indirect energy band gap and Urbach energy values of the fabricated glass. By employing the equations proposed by Mott and Davis, the obtained indirect energy band gap have val-ues ranging from 2.16 to 4.16 eV.The decreasing trend in indirect energy band gap and increasing Urbach energy values were related to the increasing num-ber of nonbridging oxygen (NBO) in the glass that is created from the breaking of Te-O-Te or B-O-B bonds after lanthanum as well as silver oxide are incor-porated into the zinc borotellurite glass network.

Journal of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering (MSCE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/msce.2018.64004
Glasses with chemical formula of {[(TeO2)0.7(B2O3)0.3]0.8[SiO2]0.2}1-x{MnO2}x where x = 0.00 ≤ x ≤ 0.05 molar fraction were fabricated using melt quenching technique. The temperature used in the heat treatment process of the glass sample is 600?C. Calorimetric measurement had been carried out to study the thermal properties of the fabricated glass. The crystallization kinetics of the glass system we reexamined under non-isothermal conditions via differential scanning calorimetric (DSC). The glass transition (Tg), onset glass transition (To), maximum crystallization temperature (Tc) and melting temperature (Tm) were determined. Results from DSC proved that the studied glasses have good thermal stability (Ts) in which indicates its high resistance to devitrification. Strong indicator for the glass forming ability of a glass material, Hurby parameter (Kgl) was also calculated in this research.

Mohd Nazri ISMAIL, Abdullah Mohd ZIN
Int'l J. of Communications, Network and System Sciences (IJCNS) , 2008, DOI: 10.4236/ijcns.2008.14042
Abstract: This article presents a novel approach for the measurement and estimation of network traffic utilization between network nodes in heterogeneous environment. This research investigates performance evaluation of network interface on heterogeneous services and technologies environment. This study proposes an enhanced equation to evaluate the performance of network interface via Little Law and Queuing theories to improve the evaluation algorithm. To get accuracy results on the performance of simulation model, it measures (verify and validate) data from Local Area Network (real network environment). This project uses network management tool to capture those data and Fluke Optiview device to generate traffic. As a result, this simulation model can provide a good approximation of the real traffic observed in the real network environment. Through laboratory and field experiments, the result shows that the model via simulation is capable of approximating the performance of network utilization and traffic over heterogeneous services and techniques within a minimum error range.
Improved NCTF Control Method for a Two-Mass Rotary Positioning Systems  [PDF]
Mohd Fitri Mohd Yakub, B. A. Aminudin
Intelligent Control and Automation (ICA) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ica.2011.24040
Abstract: This paper describes an improvement of the existing nominal characteristic trajectory following (NCTF) as a practical control method for a two-mass rotary point-to-point (PTP) positioning systems. Generally, the NCTF controller consists of a nominal characteristic trajectory (NCT) and a PI compensator. A notch filter is added as a part of the compensator to eliminate the vibration due to the mechanical resonance of the plant. The objective of the NCTF controller is to make the object motion follow the NCT and end at its origin. The NCTF controller is designed based on a simple open-loop experiment of the object. The parameters identification and an exact model of the plant are not necessary for controller design. The performance response of improved NCTF controller is evaluated and discussed based on results of simulation. The effect of the design parameters on the robustness of the NCTF controller to inertia and friction variations is evaluated and compared with conventional PID controller. The results show that the improved NCTF controller has a better positioning performance and is much more robust than the PID controller.

Azizallah Roudini, Mohd. Hassan Mohd. Osman
iBusiness (IB) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2012.42015
Abstract: More than two decades, international entrepreneurship (IE) has come out as a distinct academic discipline, and that concentrates on firms that become international from inception or near after it. However, comparatively little is known about the international entrepreneurship (IE), its capability and what drives the international performance of these firms with early and rapidly internationalizations. Therefore, the objective of the investigation is to reveal the dimensions of international entrepreneurial capability (IEC) and its effect on international performance (IP) in born global firms. The study will give an instruction to the born global (BG) managers, vision and strategy to the policymakers, and introduce the effectiveness role of international entrepreneurship capability (IEC) on international performance.
Poly(Acrylamide-Co-Acrylic Acid)-Zinc Acetate Polymer Electrolytes: Studies Based on Structural and Morphology and Electrical Spectroscopy  [PDF]
Mohd Faiz Hassan, Siti Zulaikha Mohd Yusof
Microscopy Research (MR) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/mr.2014.22005

Solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) of polyacrylamide-co-acrylic acid (PAA) as the polymer host and zinc acetate (ZnA) as an ionic dopant were prepared using a single solvent by the solution casting technique. The amorphous and crystalline structures of film were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The surface morphology of samples was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The composition and complex formation of films were characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The conductivity of the PAA-ZnA films was determined by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. According to the XRD and FTIR analyses, all electrolyte films were in amorphous state and the existence of interaction between Zn2+ cations and the PAA structure confirms that the film was successfully prepared. The SEM observations reveal that the electrolyte films appeared to be rough and flat with irregularly shaped surfaces. The highest ionic conductivity (σ) of 1.82 × 10-5 Scm-1 was achieved at room temperature (303 K) for the sample containing 10 wt % ZnA.

Hydrodynamic Modelling of Bidong Island Vicinity Waters  [PDF]
Nurul Rabitah Daud, Mohd Fadzil Mohd Akhir
Open Journal of Marine Science (OJMS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojms.2015.53026
Abstract: This paper explores the dynamic of meteorological forcing on current circulation pattern in the vicinity of Bidong using an unstructured flexible mesh hydrodynamic model. The forcings were wind, tides, temperature and salinity. The seasonal wind monsoon, mixed tides with dominant diurnal and tropical monsoon climate is characteristics of Bidong Island. We find that this area has different current circulation patterns in response to monsoon changes. It also experienced a small scale of island wake during NE monsoon. This island wake was generated by a strong northeasterly wind. We performed a series of numerical simulations based on three dominant factors in circulation, and evaluated the model using wind, tides and density. We investigated the wind-driven circulation and residual current. This study contributes to the debates on hydrodynamic of current circulation in vicinity of Bidong Island. Specifically, this study was conducted to understand the changes of currents by seasonal wind (NE monsoon and SW monsoon), temperature and salinity.
Estimation the Density of Localized State Glassy Se100–xZnx Thin Films by Using Space Charge Limited Conduction Measurement  [PDF]
Mohd. Nasir, M. Zulfequar
New Journal of Glass and Ceramics (NJGC) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/njgc.2012.22013
Abstract: The dc conductivity in vacuum evaporated amorphous thin films of the glassy alloys Se100–xZnx(2 ≤ x ≤ 20) are meas-ured in the temperature range (308 - 388 K). The dc conductivity (σdc) is increases with increased of Zn concentration in the glassy alloys. The activation energy (ΔE) decreases with increase of Zn content. The conduction is explained on the basis of localized state in the mobility gap. To study the effect of electric field, a Current-Voltage characteristic has been measured at various fixed temperatures. The Current-Voltage data are fitted into the theory of space charge limited conduction in case of uniform distribution of traps in mobility gap at high electric fields (E ~104 V/cm) of these materials. The density of localized state (g0) are estimated by fitting in theory of space charge limited conduction (SCLC) at the temperature range of (352 - 372 K) in the glassy Se100–xZnx. The density of localized state (0) near the Fermi level are increases with increase of Zn concentration in the (Se100–xZnx) thin films and explain on the basis of increase of the Zn-Se bond.

Mohd. Nasir, M. Zulfequar
Open Journal of Inorganic Non-metallic Materials (OJINM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojinm.2012.22002
Abstract: The DC conductivity and dielectric properties of glassy Se100–xZnx 2 ≤ x ≤ 20 alloys have been investigated in the temperature range 303 - 487 K with frequency range 100 Hz – 1 MHz. It is observed that DC conductivity decreases and the activation energy increases with Zn content in Se-Zn system. Dielectric dispersion is observed when Zn incorporated in Se-Zn glassy system. The results are explained on the basis of DC conduction mechanism and dipolar-type dielectric dispersion.

Abstract: Temperature dependent phase behavior of Pseudo-ternary Thiourea X-100 + 1-hexanol (1:5 molar ratios)/oil/water systems is reported. The influence of nature of hydrocarbon oil and type of electrolytes (weak as well as strong) has been investigated on the temperature induced phase behavior of the ternary system. At surfactant concentration, Φs = 40%, a “nose shaped” microemulsion region is observed. Below one-phase microemulsion region, Lα phase appears. The presence of NaCl decreases the domain size of 1Φ micellar region whereas oxalic acid first decreases the domain below Φw < 18 and then increases above Φw > 18 in the lower boundry of the phase diagram. The critical weight fraction of water, Φwcri decreases in presence of both electrolytes. However, Φwmax increases in presence of oxalic acid and remains constant in presence of NaCl as compared to salt free system. Furthermore, when cyclohexane was replaced by a longer straight chain hydrocarbon, dodecane, the domain of the one-phase microemulsion region is tremendously increased.
