Study of transfer free graphene formation

Vol. 9, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Sajib Roy
O.F.M Abdul Galib

Abstract

The method of using CVD or Chemical Vapor Deposition [1-2] in the formation of graphene synthesis has recently progress quite a lot. The material shows exceptional electronic properties and also characterizes suspended graphene resonators. But the fabrication of this material involves the transfer of graphene from its copper catalyst to the required substrate using wet chemical etching method.


The state of food security in Bangladesh : an econometric analysis

Vol. 9, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Yesmin Akhter
Pk. Md. Motiur Rahman

Abstract

The main concern of this paper is to examine the food availability, self-sufficiency rate and food gap situation in Bangladesh. Attempt has been made to estimate food gaps between production and requirement for the last ten years. Future productions of rice and wheat have been forecasted by using appropriate econometric methods such as ARIMA and Holt’s linear smoothing parameter approach.


Large scale thermal-solid coupling analysis using inexact balancing domain decomposition

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):

Abstract

In this research, a_x000D_ system of thermal-solid coupling analysis is developed with the implementation of Inexact Balancing Domain Decomposition with a diagonal scaling (IBDD-DIAG) in both thermal and solid analysis.


Postmodern visions: consumer culture's (re)making of the gaze

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Afruza Khanom

Abstract

Contemporary societies have transformed traditional identities in such a way that we, as subjects of globalization and mass consumer culture, have become tremendously self-conscious of the ‘gaze’ which makes, breaks and molds us. Postmodern visions of (im) perfection reign on TV screens and other media which constitute the way others see us and we, in turn, see ourselves.


X-Ray studies and magnetic properties of Ni-Cu-Zn ferrite

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
M. L. Rahman
S. T. Mahmud
A. K. M. Akther Hossain

Abstract

The effect of Cu2+ on the physical and magnetic properties of Ni-Zn ferrite prepared by the auto combustion technique has been studied. From the X-ray diffraction patterns it is seen that the sample has a single phase cubic spinel structure. The bulk density, average grain size and initial permeability increase with increasing sintering temperature up to an optimum temperature. Beyond that temperature all these properties decrease.


Promoting learner autonomy on a university course of English for academic purposes

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
MD. Golam Jamil

Abstract

Promoting ‘learner autonomy’ on a course of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) seems to be widely problematic as they, ‘learner autonomy’ and EAP course, are expected to supply both skills and knowledge to the learners to pursue studies of other subjects in English within a controlled academic setting.


The notion of women as bearers of culture in Monica Ali's Brick Lane

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Syeda Samara Mortada

Abstract

Alistair Cormack (2006) describes Brick Lane as a 'post-colonial story' with a 'realist narrative'; to a post-colonial critic, this has many implications. Yet looking at this text from a feminist point of view has many further dimensions. Women in this novel function as a direct representation of their cultural bearing.


Transformation of spatial pattern and declining of social capital in Dhaka city , Bangladesh

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Sheikh Rubaiya Sultana Munni

Abstract

In human settlement, there is a strong link between spatial quality and societal values. A space has two facts: physical phenomenon and a mental arena. Both of them are influenced by the social process (Sheikh, 2006). Nowadays in our country, we are experiencing rapid unplanned urbanization due to the pressure of huge population and globalization.


Application of sensitivity analysis in self purification of the Surma River , Bangladesh

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Shriful Islam
Md. J.B. Alam
Md. A. Haque

Abstract

The rivers which flow through a city show an appreciable decline in water quality but they are often difficult to specify the exact cause of deterioration. Also the treatment of pollution of river is very troublesome. This study finds the treatment efficiency of the Surma River by its self purification capacity due to the pollution through discharges of choras (small canal), industrial wastewater discharges, and human excreta disposal.


Predicting labour unrest though the lenses of theory of planned behevior : cases from BEPZA

Vol. 7, No. 1 & 2
Author(s):
Suntu Kumar Ghosh
Md. Latiful Khabir
Mohammad Thoufiqul Islam

Abstract

Industrial dispute has been touted as a major constraint in the economy of Bangladesh. While poor management and inadequate institutional factors were widely blamed for the high propensity of industrial dispute, formation of workers’ behavioural intention of industrial dispute has hardly been studied in the context of Bangladesh.
