Boron-doped diamond (BDD) thin films hold great promise for the future of water remediation, being able to completely mineralize persistent pollutants into CO2 and water, requiring only electrical energy through electrochemical oxidation. However, the main challenges encountered in applying BDDs on a large scale relate to the substrate material. El...
Glass-ceramics associate high performance with ease of manufacture, since they can be formed like glass and have the mechanical properties of a crystalline ceramic. For the present study, the glass-ceramic system used as a base was the LAS (Lithium-Aluminium-Silicate) system with the addition of zirconium oxide (ZrO2) and titanium oxide (TiO2) as n...
Vitrocerâmicas associam alto desempenho com facilidade de manufatura, pois podem ser conformadas como se fossem vidros, associada às propriedades mecânicas dos materiais cerâmicos cristalinos. Neste trabalho foi utilizado como base o sistema LAS (Lítio-Alumino-Silicato), com nucleação a partir de óxido de zircônio (ZrO2) e óxido de titânio (TiO2)....
A busca por materiais que associem alto desempenho com facilidade de manufatura é um fato bastante desejado nos dias de hoje. As vitrocerâmicas têm como grande vantagem a facilidade de conformação, pois podem ser conformadas como se fossem vidros, associadas às propriedades mecânicas dos materiais cerâmicos cristalinos. Vitrocerâmicas são sólidos p...


Question (1)
I am currently working with boron-doped diamonds films and I want to use GDOES to determine the [B]/[C] ratio to better understand the boron doping in my samples.
Does anyone know how to calculate it from the GDOES spectra (time (s) vs. measurement (V))?
I am using a GDOES equipment from HORIBA (GD Profiler 2)
Thank you very much!

Increasingly restrictive European laws force industries, especially the most polluting ones, to quickly adopt measures that minimize the environmental impact of their production activities. The petrochemical industry is one of the main contributors to the pollution of the environment as it produces large amounts of wastewater containing toxic pollutants. This project aims the development of electrodes composed of CVD diamond surfaces grown over electroconductive Si3N4-based ceramic substrates. These electrodes will be applied in electrochemical oxidation processes of hazardous contaminants. To this end, CVD deposition conditions will be appropriately adjusted so that boron-doped diamond surfaces exhibit strong electro-oxidative activity in the range of electrochemical potential of the target pollutants.
