A novel Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS) method is presented to investigate the interface between a solid surface and a surrounding liquid. The introduced measurement system allows to observe and quantify adsorption at the solid–liquid interface and the formation of the electrochemical double layer (EDL). BaCl2 as a bicomponent electrol...

Active deicing of technical surfaces, such as for wind turbines and heat exchangers, currently requires the usage of heat or chemicals. Passive coating strategies that postpone the freezing of covering water would be beneficial in order to save costs and energy. One hypothesis is that pyroelectric active materials can achieve this because of the su...
Article
We report on a new versatile experimental setup for in situ Rutherford backscattering spectrometry at solid-liquid interfaces which enables investigations of electric double layers directly and in a quantitative manner. A liquid cell with a three-electrode arrangement is mounted in front of the beam line, and a thin Si3N4 window (thickness down to...
Article
In our experiments, the icing temperature of small water volumes placed on different pyroelectric single crystals (SrxBa1−xNb2O6, LiNbO3, and LiTaO3) was determined using two measurement setups: (1) the sessile droplet and (2) ring system method. In the first method, a free-standing water droplet was exposed to several external factors in the air e...

In this work a new approach for ice repellent coatings is presented. It was shown that the coatings cause a decrease or increase in the freezing temperature of water depending on the alignment of an external electric field. For this coating the commonly used pyroelectric polymer polyvenylidene fluoride was deposited as a thin film on glass. The sam...

Electrolytic codeposition was employed as a low-cost alternative process to fabricate composite coatings containing Mn3O4 particles in a Co matrix for potential applications in solid oxide fuel cells. The effects of codeposition parameters on the Mn3O4 particle incorporation, cathode current efficiency, and coating uniformity were investigated usin...
