Sharing a book draft on the vibration analysis of quartz crystal resonators

In collaborations with industrial engineers on the design and analysis of quartz crystal plate resonators, which involves the high frequency vibrations of piezoelectric plates with Mindlin plate equations, we have to go through the details of plate equations for every stages in the analysis.  In addition, complications and bias fields are also considered.  We have put together our papers and written a draft of a book detailing essential equations and methods.  We now share this draft with you if you would like to read some documents to know insights on this particular subject.

van der Waals interaction controls orientations of single-walled carbon nanotubes on quartz during growth

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) possess extraordinary electrical and mechanical properties, with many possible applications in electronics and materials science. Dense, horizonally aligned arrays of linearly configured SWNTs represent perhaps the most attractive and scalable way to implement this class of nanomaterial in practical systems. Recent work shows that templated growth of tubes on certain crystalline substrates (e.g. quartz) yields arrays with the necessary levels of perfection, as demonstrated by the formation of devices and full systems on quartz.
