Interaction Between Hydrogen And Cnts

Current theoretical studies of simple physical adsorption on pure carbon nanotubes predict a maximum of 14 wt under low temperature and ideal conditions. The real adsorption process is likely to be more complicated, and the theoretical simulations have the potential for further refinement. In particular, as more quantitative and microscopically in-depth experimental results become available, the model parameters and assumptions will become more realistic. Only some of the experimental results...

In Figure 12, it is shown that this decrease is rather slow for zt gt L 2 for instance, a donor placed 150 A away from a GaAs-Ga0 7AsAl03As quantum well L 94.8 A still binds a state by 0.5RJ which is 2.5 meV 70 .

Heterometal Chalcogenides

Ternary chalcopyrite materials such as copper indium dis-elenide CuInSe2 , copper indium disulfide CuInS2 , and copper gallium diselenide CuGaSe2 are potential solar cell materials, given that their direct bandgaps are nearly optimal for the absorption of the solar spectrum. High-quality thin films of solar-cell materials with high specific power W kg-1 are required to fabricate efficient devices. Nanocrystalline films are an attractive alternative to single-crystalline devices that are...

Microemulsion Technique

Microemulsions are transparent, isotropic dispersions of oil and water two immiscible liquids stabilized by the presence of carefully adjusted emulsifier s surfactant molecules that can be cationic, anionic, or neutral , which are located at the interfaces between oil and water domains 339 Scheme 10 . This systems are clear and thermodynamically stable, and they are prized for their stability and small particle size. The use of microemulsion technique in the synthesis of nano-particles is based...
