    ABSTRACT: It has been shown by the heat treatment experiments (1350–1500 °C) that the compound Ho2Si2O7 exists in four modifications, a triclinic low temperature phase (type B), a monoclinic modification (type C), a high temperature monoclinic (type D) and a high temperature orthorhombic modification (type E). The X-ray diffraction studies have been used to identify these phases. The lattice constants along with the space groups are reported. Optically clear small single crystals of C- and D-type Ho2Si2O7 have also been prepared by the flux method.

    ABSTRACT: With an increase in the incorporation of colloidal or nano-sized rhenium particles into advanced materials, intimate knowledge of the surface properties of rhenium in this state is important. This paper presents and interprets XPS data of not only freshly prepared hydrazinium hydrate-generated rhenium colloids but also of the hitherto unstudied borohydride-generated rhenium colloid systems in order to deduce the initial oxidation states of the colloidal rhenium.

    ABSTRACT: Instron machine at a strain rate of 1.3 × 10 −4 s −1 . The specimen is put in circumstance box and its ends are compressed in the tensile machine grips through the hole on both top and bottom of circumstance box, it is heated up by electricity and is kept at constant temperature by auto control system, then the specimen is pulled by machine. The lengthways (direction along long of nickel foam sheet, which is called LD) and transverse (direction along short direction of nickel foam sheet, denoted TD) directions are carefully distinguished in the tests. Fig. 2 shows the material response to the quasi-static tensile loading in different temperature conditions. It is clear that temperature has an effect on properties of metallic foam material. The Young’s modulus, elastic limit, yield limit and ultimate tensile strength vary inversely as temperature. This phenomenon reflects characteristics of dense material forming cell wall. For dense metal materials, this phenomenon was studied perfectly [8], but for metallic foams, this research is not very perfect. The functions of foams mechanical properties varied with relative density and temperature are derived next. If the Young’s modulus of metallic bond is given in terms of Es, then Es ≈ 100kTm

    ABSTRACT: Application of ultraviolet absorbing transparent sol-gel derived coatings on glass was studied. TiO 2-CeO 2 and TiO 2-PbO systems were selected for the deposition of coatings on ordinary sheet glass by sol-gel processing keeping the final heating temperature of 450°C to absorb UV radiation and achieve maximum transmission in the visible wavelength region. The maximum UV cut off of sheet-glass was achieved with 60TiO 2-40CeO 2 (wt%). With proper optical design it was possible to develop an UV absorbing 60Ti) 2-40CeO 2 (wt%) coated glass with a maximum transmission of about 91% at 560 nm.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, extensive attention has been paid to the preparation and characterization of copper selenide nanoparticles, owing to their composition’s complexity and wide application in solar cells, as an optical filter and as a superionic material [1]. Various methods have been applied to prepare these important nanocrystals, such as solvothermal method [2, 3], γ -irradiation route [4], microwave-assisted heating method [5], sonochemical method [6‐8] and photochemical method [9]. However, only a few studies on the phase control of nanocrystalline copper selenide have been reported. For example, the effect of solvent and surfactant has been investigated in the formation of different phases of nanocrystalline copper selenide by Xie and coworkers [8] using a sonochemical approach. Therefore, to further study the phase control of nanocrystalline copper selenide with simple process will be interesting. In this letter, we report a complex-assisted photochemical route for the control synthesis of different phases of copper selenide nanocrystals. Compared with changing solvent or surfactant to control the phase of copper selenide, our control synthesis of different phases of copper selenide nanocrystals is by means of complexing agent. Furthermore, in this route, Se 2− source for copper selenide is provided by photochemical method. The formation of copper selenide nanocrystals with different phases in this complex-assisted photochemical route is also discussed. Cu(NO3)2·3H2O, disodium ethylene diamine tetracetate (EDTA-2Na), trisodium citrate (Cit-3Na), triethanolamine (TEA), Na2SO3 and Se powders were of analytical grade, purchased from Shanghai Chemical Reagent Company and used without further purification. Sodium selenosulfate (Na2SeSO3, 0.2 mol/L) was prepared by refluxing the mixture of a 100 mL aqueous solution of sodium sulfite (Na2SO3, 0.6 mol/L) and 0.02 mol Se powders for about 5 h. 0.2 g Cu(NO3)2·3H2 Ow as dissolved into 26 mL deionized water in three 50 mL stoppered quartz conical flasks, respectively. To them, complexing agents (EDTA-2Na, Cit-3Na and TEA) were added with the molar ratio of complexing agent: Cu 2+ ions = 1:1 to form complex solutions. Afte r1h stirring, 0.2 mol/L Na2SeSO3 were respectively added to the complexing solutions to give a final volume of 30 mL and the mixture solutions were purged with nitrogen for 15 min.

    ABSTRACT: Lead zirconate titanate (PZT) is a well known ceramic solid solution of PbZrO3-PbTiO3 which has attracted much attention for applications in ferroelectric, piezoelectric and optical devices [1‐3]. Recently, interest in PZT thin films has rapidly grown with active studies directed toward exploring several ferroelectric compositions while involving a variety of deposition techniques. The key element in high quality PZT thin films for the application of several devices has been the ability to deposit them in a reproducible process with the correct crystal structure and the exact stoichiometric controllability.

    ABSTRACT: Interaction between CO2 laser pulses and BiFeO3 ferrite was analyzed. The samples were prepared by mechanochemical treatment of equimolar Fe2O3-Bi2O3 powder mixtures for 3,6,12,24,48 and 100h. Infrared spectra of BiFeO3 ferrites were measured under an incident angle of 90°, in the range 4000-180 cm-1. Results show that composition changes in the ferrites are due to the boiling points of impurities in the basic crystal lattice.
