(2014-05-30)We study the optical properties of luminescent silicon nanoparticles in the presence of magnetic ions of iron or erbium in solution and electric biasing. Upon the introduction of the ions under zero biasing, the ...
Design and characterization of catalysts and electrodes for electrochemical energy conversion applications (2014-09-16)The modern world faces immense challenges associated with meeting its energy needs, due to its current dependence on fossil fuels. At the same time, the world faces the threat of global climate change linked to CO2 emissions. ...
(2012-02-06)The combustion of nano-aluminum in Teflon was studied using time-resolved laser spectroscopy. This reactive material has a stored energy of ~21 kJ cm-3, nearly twice the energy content of the best molecular explosives. ...
(2002)We studied the electronic properties of silicon nanoparticles with sizes rang- ing from 2.9 to 1 nm in diameter. Using a scanning tunneling microscope we studied the electronic structure of the particles. Resonant tunneling ...
(2014-05-30)Gold nanorods are of great interest in many areas of science and technology due to their versatility and electro-optical properties. There are simple synthesis methods that allow for shape control and the ability to change ...
Synthesis and microstructural characterization of phosphate cathode materials prepared by a polymeric steric entrapment precursor route (2015-01-21)Due to its high energy density and cycling performance Li-ion batteries play an important role as energy storage technology in the future human development. Lithium ion batteries are appealing for applications that include ...
