REACTIVE FORCE FIELDS FOR Y-DOPED BaZrO3 ELECTROLYTE AND NI-ANODE. POTENTIAL CATHODE MATERIALS FOR APPLICATION IN PROTON CERAMIC FUEL CELLS  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Based on quantum mechanical data obtained for the Y-doped BaZrO{sub 3} electrolyte and Ni-anode Reactive Force Field parameters have been developed for further molecular dynamics simulations of the proton diffusion and electrode/electrolyte interfaces. Electronic and atomic structures of different terminations of the (001) BaZrO{sub 3} surface have been studied using first-principles calculations. Several potential cathode materials for the Y-doped BaZrO{sub 3} system were synthesized via glycine nitrate combustion method. Of the five potential cathode materials examined BaZr{sub 0.40}Pr{sub 0.40}Gd{sub 0.20}O{sub 3} and BaZr{sub 0.60}Y{sub 0.20}Co{sub 0.20}O{sub 3} appear to be the most promising for further applications in proton ceramic fuel cells. Fuel cell test of a Y-doped BaZrO{sub 3} thin film using platinum ink for both electrodes have been performed. The obtained results shows that a robust method for fabricating crack-free thin membranes, as well as methods for sealing anode and cathode chambers, have successfully been developed.

Strong blue and white photoluminescence emission of BaZrO{sub 3} undoped and lanthanide doped phosphor for light emitting diodes application  

SciTech Connect

In this paper, we report the obtained strong broadband blue photoluminescence (PL) emission centered at 427 nm for undoped BaZrO{sub 3} observed after 266 nm excitation of submicron crystals prepared by hydrothermal/calcinations method. This emission is enhanced with the introduction of Tm{sup 3+} ions and is stronger than the characteristic PL blue emission of such lanthanide. The proposed mechanism of relaxation for host lattice emission is based on the presence of oxygen vacancies produced during the synthesis process and the charge compensation due to the difference in the electron valence between dopant and substituted ion in the host. Brilliant white light emission with a color coordinate of (x=0.29, y=0.32) was observed by combining the blue PL emission from the host with the green and red PL emission from Tb{sup 3+} and Eu{sup 3+} ions, respectively. The color coordinate can be tuned by changing the ratio between blue, green and red band by changing the concentration of lanthanides. - Graphical abstract: Strong blue emission from undoped BaZrO{sub 3} phosphor and white light emission by doping with Tb{sup 3+} (green) and Eu{sup 3+} (red) after 266 nm excitation.

Enhanced Power Stability for Proton Conducting Solid Oxides Fuel Cells. Calculated energy barriers for proton diffusion in Y-doped BaZrO3. Potential electrode materials for application in proton ceramic fuel cells.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

A series of Quantum Mechanical (QM) calculations on Y-doped BaZrO{sub 3} (BYZ) periodic structures have been performed and calculated energy barriers for the intra-octahedra and inter-octahedra proton transfer have been found. The inter-octahedra proton transfer dominates in the BYZ electrolyte. Several potential cathode materials for the Y-doped BaZrO{sub 3} system were synthesized via glycine nitrate combustion method. Of the five potential cathode materials examined BaZr{sub 0.40}Pr{sub 0.40}Gd{sub 0.20}O{sub 3} and BaZr{sub 0.60}Y{sub 0.20}Co{sub 0.20}O{sub 3} appear to be the most promising for further applications in proton ceramic fuel cells (PCFCs). Potential anode electrocatalysts (metals) have been screened for reactivity with BaZr{sub 1-x}Y{sub x}O{sub 3-d}, fabrication compatibility, and chemical stability in fuel cell environment.

Rapid Method for Ra-226 and Ra-228 in Water Samples  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The measurement of radium isotopes in natural waters is important for oceanographic studies and for public health reasons. Ra-226 (1620 year half-life) is one of the most toxic of the long-lived alpha emitters present in the environment due to its long life and its tendency to concentrate in bones, which increases the internal radiation dose of individuals. The analysis of radium-226 and radium-228 in natural waters can be tedious and time-consuming. Different sample preparation methods are often required to prepare Ra-226 and Ra-228 for separate analyses. A rapid method has been developed at the Savannah River Environmental Laboratory that effectively separates both Ra-226 and Ra-228 (via Ac-228) for assay. This method uses MnO{sub 2} Resin from Eichrom Technologies (Darien, IL, USA) to preconcentrate Ra-226 and Ra-228 rapidly from water samples, along with Ba-133 tracer. DGA Resin{reg_sign} (Eichrom) and Ln-Resin{reg_sign} (Eichrom) are employed in tandem to prepare Ra-226 for assay by alpha spectrometry and to determine Ra-228 via the measurement of Ac-228 by gas proportional counting. After preconcentration, the manganese dioxide is dissolved from the resin and passed through stacked Ln-Resin-DGA Resin cartridges that remove uranium and thorium interferences and retain Ac-228 on DGA Resin. The eluate that passed through this column is evaporated, redissolved in a lower acidity and passed through Ln-Resin again to further remove interferences before performing a barium sulfate microprecipitation. The Ac-228 is stripped from the resin, collected using cerium fluoride microprecipitation and counted by gas proportional counting. By using vacuum box cartridge technology with rapid flow rates, sample preparation time is minimized.

RAPID METHOD FOR DETERMINATION OF {sup 228}Ra IN WATER SAMPLES  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A new rapid method for the determination of {sup 228}Ra in natural water samples has been developed at the SRNL/EBL (Savannah River National Lab/ Environmental Bioassay Laboratory) that can be used for emergency response or routine samples. While gamma spectrometry can be employed with sufficient detection limits to determine {sup 228}Ra in solid samples (via {sup 228}Ac) , radiochemical methods that employ gas flow proportional counting techniques typically provide lower MDA (Minimal Detectable Activity) levels for the determination of {sup 228}Ra in water samples. Most radiochemical methods for {sup 228}Ra collect and purify {sup 228}Ra and allow for {sup 228}Ac daughter ingrowth for ~36 hours. In this new SRNL/EBL approach, {sup 228}Ac is collected and purified from the water sample without waiting to eliminate this delay. The sample preparation requires only about 4 hours so that {sup 228}Ra assay results on water samples can be achieved in 90%), followed by rapid cation exchange removal of calcium. Lead, bismuth, uranium, thorium and protactinium isotopes are also removed by the cation exchange separation. {sup 228}Ac is eluted from the cation resin directly onto a DGA Resin cartridge attached to the bottom of the cation column to purify {sup 228}Ac. DGA Resin also removes lead and bismuth isotopes, along with Sr isotopes and {sup 90}Y. La is used to determine {sup 228}Ac chemical yield via ICP-MS, but {sup 133}Ba can also be used instead if ICP-MS assay is not available. Unlike some older methods, no lead or strontium holdback carriers or continual readjustment of sample pH is required.

Video Production Tips Video Production Tips R.A. Nocera There are many elements that contribute to a good video. Much of the work is in pre- production: script, storyboard, props, location, rehearsal, editing. All of these should be refined and ready before production and not interfere with the shooting schedule. I suggest creating a shot schedule of which scenes you are going to film - if you're shooting some scenes indoors and some outdoors, arrange the script in terms of location. This will make production much more efficient. There are many books and online pages about video production for reference. This is the most important aspect of film: SOUND. If you have a brilliant script, good actors, and direction, it will not translate if the sound is inaudible. Here are some ways

RAPID DETERMINATION OF RA-226 IN ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES  

SciTech Connect

A new rapid method for the determination of {sup 226}Ra in environmental samples has been developed at the Savannah River Site Environmental Lab (Aiken, SC, USA) that can be used for emergency response or routine sample analyses. The need for rapid analyses in the event of a Radiological Dispersive Device or Improvised Nuclear Device event is well-known. In addition, the recent accident at Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant in March, 2011 reinforces the need to have rapid analyses for radionuclides in environmental samples in the event of a nuclear accident. {sup 226}Ra (T1/2 = 1,620 years) is one of the most toxic of the long-lived alpha-emitters present in the environment due to its long life and its tendency to concentrate in bones, which increases the internal radiation dose of individuals. The new method to determine {sup 226}Ra in environmental samples utilizes a rapid sodium hydroxide fusion method for solid samples, calcium carbonate precipitation to preconcentrate Ra, and rapid column separation steps to remove interferences. The column separation process uses cation exchange resin to remove large amounts of calcium, Sr Resin to remove barium and Ln Resin as a final purification step to remove {sup 225}Ac and potential interferences. The purified {sup 226}Ra sample test sources are prepared using barium sulfate microprecipitation in the presence of isopropanol for counting by alpha spectrometry. The method showed good chemical recoveries and effective removal of interferences. The determination of {sup 226}Ra in environmental samples can be performed in less than 16 h for vegetation, concrete, brick, soil, and air filter samples with excellent quality for emergency or routine analyses. The sample preparation work takes less than 6 h. {sup 225}Ra (T1/2 = 14.9 day) tracer is used and the {sup 225}Ra progeny {sup 217}At is used to determine chemical yield via alpha spectrometry. The rapid fusion technique is a rugged sample digestion method that ensures that any refractory radium particles are effectively digested. The preconcentration and column separation steps can also be applied to aqueous samples with good results.

A correlation between soil descriptions and {sup 226}Ra concentrations in Florida soils  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The soil radium content in Florida is highly variable. The range in radium concentrations, where the samples involved in this study are concerned, is from 0.1 pCi/g to 18.5 pCi/g. Low {sup 226}Ra concentrations (0.1 to 5 pCi/g) are evidenced in sands, moderate concentrations (5 to 11 pCi/g) are found in silt and gravel, and high {sup 226}Ra concentrations (>11 pCi/g) are found in soil horizons with shell, clay, and strata with phosphate. Strata containing phosphate yields a high concentration of {sup 226}Ra. The information obtained in this study, soil descriptions with their corresponding {sup 226}Ra concentrations, comes from geological cores drilled by geotechnical consultants with gamma spectrometry analysis performed by high resolution gamma spectroscopy. Concentration; of {sup 226}Ra generally increase with depth. These cores are usually terminated at 20 feet deep, with some cores being shallower than this due to hitting bedrock or encountering the water table. These frequency distributions give the core-logging geologist an approximate concentration of {sup 226}Ra based on the description of the soil. Since the correlation of {sup 226}Ra and soil descriptions can be used as a tool in assigning indoor radon potential, this study is of importance to land managers, contractors, developers, and regulating agencies who are attempting to place standards on tracts of land with {sup 226}Ra concentration used as a criterion.

NOx Storage-Reduction Characteristics of Ba-Based Lean NOx Trap Catalysts Subjected to Simulated Road Aging  

SciTech Connect

Although Lean NO{sub x} Trap (LNT) catalyst technology has made significant strides in recent years, the issue of LNT durability remains problematic. Following on from our previous research concerning the effect of ceria addition on LNT preformance, in this study we focus on the role of ceria in ameliorating the deterioration of Ba-based LNT catalysts during aging. Indeed, we have observed that spectacular improvements in LNT durability can be achieved through the incorporation of CeO{sub 2}-ZrO{sub 2} into the LNT formulation, and, to a lesser extent, La-stabilized ceria.

High sensitivity measurement of 224Ra and 226Ra in water with an improved hydrous titanium oxide technique at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The existing hydrous titanium oxide (HTiO) technique for the measurement of 224Ra and 226Ra in the water at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO) has been changed to make it faster and less sensitive to trace impurities in the HTiO eluate. Using HTiO-loaded filters followed by cation exchange adsorption and HTiO co-precipitation, Ra isotopes from 200-450 tonnes of heavy water can be extracted and concentrated into a single sample of a few millilitres with a total chemical efficiency of 50%. Combined with beta-alpha coincidence counting, this method is capable of measuring 2.0x10^3 uBq/kg of 224Ra and 3.7x10^3 uBq/kg of 226Ra from the 232Th and 238U decay chains, respectively, for a 275 tonne D2O assay, which are equivalent to 5x10^16 g Th/g and 3x10^16 g U/g in heavy water.

Interdiffusion between Zr Diffusion Barrier and U-Mo Alloy  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

U-Mo alloys are being developed as low enrichment uranium fuels under the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactor (RERTR) program. Significant reactions have been observed between U-Mo fuels and Al or Al alloy matrix. Refractory metal Zr has been proposed as barrier material to reduce the interactions. In order to investigate the compatibility and barrier effects between U-Mo alloy and Zr, solid-to-solid U-10wt.%Mo vs. Zr diffusion couples were assembled and annealed at 600, 700, 800, 900 and 1000 C for various times. The microstructures and concentration profiles due to interdiffusion and reactions were examined via scanning electron microscopy and electron probe microanalysis, respectively. Intermetallic phase Mo2Zr was found at the interface and its population increased when annealing temperature decreased. Diffusion paths were also plotted on the U-Mo-Zr ternary phase diagrams with good consistency. The growth rate of interdiffusion zone between U-10wt.%Mo and Zr was also calculated under the assumption of parabolic diffusion, and was determined to be about 103 times lower than the growth rate of diffusional interaction layer found in diffusion couples U-10wt.%Mo vs. Al or Al-Si alloy. Other desirable physical properties of Zr as barrier material, such as neutron adsorption rate, melting point and thermal conductivity are presented as supplementary information to demonstrate the great potential of Zr as the diffusion barrier for U-Mo fuel systems in RERTR.

The BaBar Drift Chamber  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The central drift chamber for the BaBar detector at the PEP-II B-factory at SLAC is a cylindrical chamber with a length of 280 cm and outer radius of 81 cm. It consists of 40 layers of small hexagonal cells arranged in 10 axial and stereo super-layers. In order to minimize multiple scattering, light materials are used for the mechanical structure, and the gas mixture is Helium based. The pulse-height and timing electronics are mounted directly on the chamber rear end-plate. A full length prototype of the BaBar drift chamber has been built. The analysis of cosmic ray events measures the spatial resolution averaged in the cell to be 130 m and the dE/dx resolution to be 6.8%, meeting the performance goals for the BaBar central tracker. The mechanical assembly and stringing of the chamber was completed in December 1997 and the detector will be integrated into BaBar during summer 1998. 1

Interfacial Energy Transfer during Gamma Radiolysis of Water on the Surface of ZrO2 and Some Other Oxides  

SciTech Connect

Effect of oxide interface on 60Co gamma radiolysis of water molecules was studied. Based on the molecular hydrogen yield when compared with that from the radiolysis of pure gas-phase water, all tested oxides can be classified into three groups: (i) inhibitors - MnO2, Co3O4, CuO and Fe2O3; (ii) oxides with H2 yields, which are similar to or slightly greater than radiolysis of pure gas-phase water - MgO, CaO, SrO, BaO, ZnO, CdO, Cu2O, NiO, Cr2O3, Al2O3, CeO2, SiO2, TiO2, Nb2O5 and WO3; (iii) promoters - Ga2O3, Y2O3, La2O3, Nd2O3, Sm2O3, Eu2O3, Gd2O3, Yb2O3, Er2O3, HfO2, and ZrO2. H2O radiolysis enhancement for ZrO2 and other promoters is result of effective energy transfer at the oxide/water interface, presumably due to migration of excitons to the surface and their resonant coupling with the H2O adsorption complex. Plot''effective H2 yield vs. band-gap (Eg) energy'' shows a maximum near 5 eV.

Quantitative Spectroscopy of BA-type Supergiants  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Luminous BA-SGs allow topics ranging from NLTE physics and the evolution of massive stars to the chemical evolution of galaxies and cosmology to be addressed. A hybrid NLTE technique for the quantitative spectroscopy of BA-SGs is discussed. Thorough tests and first applications of the spectrum synthesis method are presented for four bright Galactic objects. Stellar parameters are derived from spectroscopic indicators. The internal accuracy of the method allows the 1sigma-uncertainties to be reduced to reduce random errors and remove systematic trends in the analysis. Inappropriate LTE analyses tend to systematically underestimate iron group abundances and overestimate the light and alpha-process element abundances by up to factors of 2-3 on the mean. Contrary to common assumptions, significant NLTE abundance correction...

Pygmy dipole strength in {sup 90}Zr  

SciTech Connect

The dipole response of the N=50 nucleus {sup 90}Zr was studied in photon-scattering experiments at the electron linear accelerator ELBE with bremsstrahlung produced at kinetic electron energies of 7.9, 9.0, and 13.2 MeV. We identified 189 levels up to an excitation energy of 12.9 MeV. Statistical methods were applied to estimate intensities of inelastic transitions and to correct the intensities of the ground-state transitions for their branching ratios. In this way we derived the photoabsorption cross section up to the neutron-separation energy. This cross section matches well the photoabsorption cross section obtained from ({gamma}, n) data and thus provides information about the extension of the dipole-strength distribution toward energies below the neutron-separation energy. An enhancement of E1 strength has been found in the range of 6 to 11 MeV. Calculations within the framework of the quasiparticle-phonon model ascribe this strength to a vibration of the excessive neutrons against the N=Z neutron-proton core, giving rise to a pygmy dipole resonance.

Atomic-Scale Structure of Al2O3-ZrO2 Mixed Oxides Prepared by Laser Ablation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

By means of x-ray diffractometry (XRD) and X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy, the phase composition and atomic structure of laser evaporated ZrO2 and ZrO2-Al2O3 nanopowders have been studied. The results indicate that pure ZrO2 exists in the form of tetragonal structure, Al2O3 doped ZrO2 nanoparticles, however, have cubic structure. Compared to bulk tetragonal ZrO2, pure tetragonal ZrO2 nanoparticles have a shorter Zr-O- and Zr-Zr shell, indicating that the lattice contracts with decreasing particle size. For Al2O3 doped ZrO2 solid solution, the distances of first Zr-O and Zr-Zr (Al) coordination decrease with increasing solid solubility. The disorder degree of the ZrO2 lattice increases with increasing solid solubility. The coevaporated ZrO2-Al2O3 is quickly solidified into amorphous phase when it is ablated in a higher pressure. The amorphous phase contains Zr-O-Zr (Al) clusters and has shorter Zr-O distance and tower Zr-O coordination number.

Comparison of radon fluxes with gamma-radiation exposure rates and soil /sup 226/Ra concentrations  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Radon fluxes and contact gamma-radiation-exposure rates were measured at the grid points of rectangular grids on three properties in Edgemont, South Dakota that were known to have deposits of residual radioactivity relatively near to the surface. The coefficient of determination, r/sup 2/, between the radon fluxes and the contact gamma-radiation-exposure rates varied from 0.89 to 0.31 for the three properties. The property having the highest fluxes and residual radioactivity of relatively uniform depth showed the highest correlation between fluxes and exposure rates, and the property having residual radioactivity that varied considerably in depth showed the lowest. Correlations between fluxes and /sup 226/Ra concentrations measured in boreholes that varied in depth from 60 to 195 cm were lower than those between fluxes and exposure rates, indicating that exposure rates are better than /sup 226/Ra measurements for detecting elevated radon fluxes from near-surface deposits. Measurements made on one property at two different times indicated that if the average flux were determined from a large number (40) of measurements at one time, the average flux at a later time could be estimated from a few measurements using the assumption that the change in the flux at individual locations will be equal to the change in the average flux. Flux measurements around two buildings showing elevated indoor radon-daughter concentrations, but around which no residual radioactivity had been discovered by /sup 226/Ra and gamma-radiation measurements, provided no clear indication of the presence of such material, possibly because none was present.

Evidence of Eu{sup 2+} 4f electrons in the valence band spectra of EuTiO{sub 3} and EuZrO{sub 3}  

SciTech Connect

We report on optical band gap and valence electronic structure of two Eu{sup 2+}-based perovskites, EuTiO{sub 3} and EuZrO{sub 3} as revealed by diffuse optical scattering, electron energy loss spectroscopy, and valence-band x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The data show good agreement with the first-principles studies in which the top of the valence band structure is formed by the narrow Eu 4f{sup 7} electron band. The O 2p band shows the features similar to those of the Ba(Sr)TiO{sub 3} perovskites except that it is shifted to higher binding energies. Appearance of the Eu{sup 2+} 4f{sup 7} band is a reason for narrowing of the optical band gap in the title compounds as compared to their Sr-based analogues.

We present a comprehensive study of the binary intermetallic superconductor, BaSn{sub 5}. High-quality single crystalline BaSn{sub 5} was grown out of a Sn flux. Detailed thermodynamic and transport measurements were performed to study BaSn{sub 5}'s normal and superconducting state properties. This material appears to be a strongly coupled, multiband superconductor. H{sub c2}(T) is almost isotropic. De Haasvan Alphen oscillations were observed and two effective masses were estimated from the FFT spectra. Hydrostatic pressure causes a decrease in the superconducting transition temperature at the rate of ??0.053??0.001?K/kbar.

These materials are local moment magnets with moderate band gap antiferromagnetic semiconducting ground states. The electronic structures show substantial Mn-pnictogen hybridization, which stabilizes an intermediate spin configuration for the nominally d{sup 5} Mn. The results are discussed in the context of possible thermoelectric applications and the relationship with the corresponding iron/cobalt/nickel compounds Ba(Fe,Co,Ni){sub 2}As{sub 2}.

Chemical vapor deposition of ZrC in small bore carbon-composite tubes  

SciTech Connect

Process conditions are described for the chemical vapor deposition of ZrC from ZrCl/sub 4/--CH/sub 4/--HCl--H/sub 2/--Ar vapor over the temperature range 1320 to 1775 deg K. From an analysis of the process conditions (initial composition of coating gas, axial temperature profile along the tubes, total pressure, and length of deposition time), the subsequent ZrC coat thickness profiles and thermodynamic data, an equation expressing the variation of the axial rate of ZrC deposition is derived. This expression can be used for the estimation of process conditions required to yield a specified ZrC coat profile. Variations of the chlorine and oxygen contents, lattice pararmeter, microstructure of the ZrC deposit and thermal expansion coefficient as a function of deposition temperature are described.

Thermodynamic Modeling and Experimental Study of the Fe-Cr-Zr System  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Wide applications of zircaloys, stainless steels and their interactions in nuclear reactors require the knowledge on phase stability and thermodynamic property of the Fe-Cr-Zr system. This knowledge is also important to develop new Zr-contained Fe-Cr ferritic steels. This work aims at developing thermodynamic models for describing phase stability and thermodynamic property of the Fe-Cr-Zr system using the Calphad approach coupled with experimental study. Thermodynamic descriptions of the Fe-Cr and Cr-Zr systems were either directly adopted or slightly modified from literature. The Fe-Zr system has been remodeled to accommodate recent ab-initio calculation of formation enthalpies of various Fe-Zr compounds. Reliable ternary experimental data and thermodynamic models were mainly available in the Zr-rich region. Therefore, selected ternary alloys located in the vicinity of the eutectic valley of (Fe,Cr,Zr) and (Fe,Cr)2Zr laves phase in the Fe-rich region have been experimentally investigated in this study. Microstructure has been examined by using scanning electron microscope, energy-dispersive Xray spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. These experimental results, along with the literature data were then used to develop thermodynamic models for phases in the Fe-Cr-Zr system. Calculated phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of the ternary system yield satisfactory agreements with available experimental data, which gives the confidence to use these models as building blocks for developing a Zr, Fe and Cr contained multicomponent thermodynamic database for broader applications in nuclear reactors.

Itinerant Antiferromagnetism in BaCr2As2  

SciTech Connect

We report single-crystal synthesis, specific-heat and resistivity measurements and electronic structure calculations for BaCr{sub 2}As{sub 2}. This material is a metal with itinerant antiferromagnetism, similar to the parent phases of Fe-based high-temperature superconductors, but differs in magnetic order. Comparison of bare band-structure density of states and the low-temperature specific heat implies a mass renormalization of {approx}2. BaCr{sub 2}As{sub 2} shows stronger transition-metal-pnictogen covalency than the Fe compounds, and in this respect is more similar to BaMn{sub 2}As{sub 2}. This provides an explanation for the observation that Ni and Co doping is effective in the Fe-based superconductors, but Cr or Mn doping is not.

Amorphous W-Zr films as diffusion barriers between Al and Si  

SciTech Connect

Cosputtered W70Zr30 and W40Zr60 films are investigated as diffusion barriers between Aq and Si. W-Zr alloys of both compositions were determined by x-ray diffraction to crystallize at 900/sup 0/C on A1/sub 2/O/sub 3/ substrates. On <111>Si the W-Zr alloy reacts with the substrate above 700/sup 0/C, forming a uniform, polycrystalline layer of W and Zr silicides. Despite the high crystallization temperatures, an A1 overlayer interacts with W-Zr and the Si substrate at approx. 500/sup 0/C. MeV He-backscattering spectrometry, SEM, and EDAX indicate that this reaction is laterally nonuniform with the formation of deep pits penetrating into the Si substrate. The authors believe this to be a consequence of fractures in the W-Zr layer induced by reaction with A1. Electrical measurements on shallow junction diodes with /W-Zr/Al contacts show that the device junctions were thermally stable after a 30 min annealing at 450/sup 0/C but were all shorted after heat treatments at 500/sup 0/C or above.

Superconductivity in gallium-substituted Ba8Si46 clathrates  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report a joint experimental and theoretical investigation of superconductivity in Ga-substituted type-I silicon clathrates. We prepared samples of the general formula Ba8Si46-xGax, with different values of x. We show that Ba8Si40Ga6 is a bulk superconductor, with an onset at T-C approximate to 3.3 K. For x=10 and higher, no superconductivity was observed down to T=1.8 K. This represents a strong suppression of superconductivity with increasing Ga content, compared to Ba8Si46 with T-C approximate to 8 K. Suppression of superconductivity can be attributed primarily to a decrease in the density of states at the Fermi level, caused by a reduced integrity of the sp(3)-hybridized networks as well as the lowering of carrier concentration. These results are corroborated by first-principles calculations, which show that Ga substitution results in a large decrease of the electronic density of states at the Fermi level, which explains the decreased superconducting critical temperature within the BCS framework. To further characterize the superconducting state, we carried out magnetic measurements showing Ba8Si40Ga6 to be a type-II superconductor. The critical magnetic fields were measured to be H-C1 approximate to 35 Oe and H-C2 approximate to 8.5 kOe. We deduce the London penetration depth lambda approximate to 3700 A and the coherence length xi(c)approximate to 200 A. Our estimate of the electron-phonon coupling reveals that Ba8Si40Ga6 is a moderate phonon-mediated BCS superconductor.

Phase equilibria of the Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O system for coated conductor applications  

SciTech Connect

The complex phase relationships near the BaO-poor region of the quaternary Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O oxide system prepared in pure air (p{sub O{sub 2}}=22 kPa, 950 {sup o}C) and in 0.1% O{sub 2} (p{sub O{sub 2}}=100 Pa, 810 {sup o}C) have been determined. This investigation also included the subsolidus compatibilities in ten subsystems (Ba-Sm-Y-O, Ba-Sm-Cu-O, Ba-Y-Cu-O, Sm-Y-Cu-O, Ba-Sm-O, Ba-Y-O, Ba-Cu-O, Sm-Y-O, Sm-Cu-O, and Y-Cu-O), and the homogeneity range of five solid solutions (Ba(Sm{sub x}Y{sub 2-x})CuO{sub 5}, (Sm,Y){sub 2}O{sub 3}, (Sm,Y){sub 2}CuO{sub 4}, (Y,Sm){sub 2}Cu{sub 2}O{sub 5}, and Ba(Sm,Y){sub 2}O{sub 4}). The single phase range of the superconductor solid solution, (Ba{sub 2-x}Sm{sub x})(Sm{sub 1-y}Y{sub y})Cu{sub 3}O{sub 6+z}, and the phase compatibilities in its vicinity, which are particularly important for processing, are described in detail. The phase equilibrium data of the Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O system will enable the improvement of the intrinsic superconducting properties of second-generation wires, and facilitate the flux-pinning process. -- Graphical Abstract: Phase diagram overview of the Ba-Sm-Y-Cu-O system in the BaO-poor region prepared in p{sub O2}=22 kPa, 950 {sup o}C.

Model for Simulation of Hydride Precipitation in Zr-Based Used Fuel  

Energy.gov (U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)) Indexed Site

for Simulation of Hydride Precipitation in Zr-Based Used Fuel for Simulation of Hydride Precipitation in Zr-Based Used Fuel Claddings: A Status Report on Current Model Capabilities Model for Simulation of Hydride Precipitation in Zr-Based Used Fuel Claddings: A Status Report on Current Model Capabilities The report demonstrates a meso-scale, microstructural evolution model for simulation of zirconium hydride precipitation in the cladding of used fuels during long-term dry-storage. While the Zr-based claddings (regarded as a barrier for containment of radioactive fission products and fuel) are manufactured free of any hydrogen, they absorb hydrogen during service in the reactor. The amount of hydrogen that the cladding picks up is primarily a function of the exact chemistry and microstructure of the claddings and reactor operating conditions, time-temperature history, and

Analysis of B ? ?l? Decays With BaBar  

SciTech Connect

As part of the BaBar project at SLAC to study the properties of B mesons, we have carried out a study of the exclusive charmless semileptonic decay mode B ? ?l?, which can be used to determine the magnitude of the Cabbibo- Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix element Vub. Using simulated event samples, this study focuses on determining criteria on variables for selection of B ? ?l? signal and suppression of background from other types of BB events and continuum processes. In addition, we determine optimal cuts on variables to ensure a good neutrino reconstruction. With these selection cuts, we were able to achieve a signal-to-background ratio of 0.68 and a signal efficiency of the order of 1%. Applying these cuts to a sample of 83 million BB events recorded by BaBar in e+e collisions at the (4S) resonance, we obtain a yield of 115 19 B ? ?l? decays.

{sup 40}K, {sup 115}Cs and {sup 226}Ra Soil and Plant Content in Seminatural Grasslands of Central Argentina  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Activity concentrations of {sup 40}K, {sup 226}Ra and {sup 137}Cs have been analyzed in soil and plant samples, collected in permanent grassland in central Argentina. Two near areas (A1 and A2) under field conditions with soil undisturbed at least in the last four decades were selected. For each of the three studied radionuclides we do not find differences in the inventories between both areas. The inventories range from 143 kBq m{sup -2} to 197 kBq m{sup -2} for {sup 40}K and from 13 kBq m{sup -2} to 18 kBq m{sup -2} for {sup 226}Ra. The vertical distributions of {sup 40}K and {sup 226}Ra are uniform through de soil profile. For {sup 137}Cs the inventories range from 0.33 kBq m{sup -2} to 0.73 kBq m{sup -2}. In spite of {sup 137}Cs inventories are similar in both areas the distribution through vertical profile is different. {sup 137}Cs activity concentration has a maximum for layers 5-10 cm depth in A1 and 10-15 cm depth in A2. For deeper layers both areas show similar activity concentrations. The diffusion coefficient (D{sub s}) and convection velocity (v{sub s}) are estimated with a convection-diffusion model. D{sub s} values are in the range reported in the bibliography, while v{sub s} values are one order of magnitude higher. After 40 years most {sup 137}Cs fallout is still in the layer 10-15 cm depth. The great penetration of {sup 137}Cs (25 cm) in these soils may be the result of a high sand and low fine materials content. {sup 137}Cs and {sup 226}Ra were not detected in grass samples. Activity concentration of {sup 40}K in vegetal samples ranges from 116 Bq kg{sup -1} to 613 Bq kg{sup -1}. The TF values obtained for {sup 40}K show a lognormal distribution and ranges from 0.05 to 0.42.

Phase Stability and Thermodynamic Assessment of the Np-Zr system  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Metallic fuels have an important role to play in "fast breeder" Gen-IV type nuclear reactors, and U-Pu-Zr is one of the prototypical systems. Because of the variability in fuel chemistry during burn-up, it is important to understand the effect of minor actinides and fission products on phase stability. Within this framework, we present a study on phase equilibria in the binary Np-Zr alloy system on which little work has been published. To resolve the contradictory reports on the ordering/ clustering trends of the bcc phase, a thermodynamic study is performed using the CALPHAD method. The calculated Np-Zr phase diagram is consistent with two sets of data: formation enthalpies of the bcc phase that are calculated with ab initio KKR-ASA-CPA electronic-structure method and lattice stabilities of solution phases obtained from first-principles technique. Another important feature in the Np-Zr alloy system is the non-stoichiometric delta-NpZr2 phase that forms in a hexagonal C32 structure similar to the delta-phase in the U-Zr system and the w-phase in pure Zr. An increase in the homogeneity range of the delta-phase when going from Pu to Np and to U is attributed to a lowering of its heat of formation that is caused by an increase in d-band occupation. Two different possibilities for the stability of the delta- and w- phases have been proposed in the present work. Additionally, calculated changes in enthalpy versus temperature are plotted for two alloy compositions of the Np-Zr system to guide future experimental work in resolving important issues in this system. Finally, an ab initio study, implemented with the L(S)DA U formalism, is performed for pure Np that reveals a transition from a non-magnetic to a magnetic state at a critical U parameter.

Results from ORNL Characterization of Zr02-500-AK2 - Surrogate TRISO Material  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This document is a compilation of the characterization data for the TRISO-coated surrogate particle batch designated ZrO2-500-AK2 that was produced at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) as part of the Advanced Gas Reactor Fuel Development and Qualification (AGR) program. The ZrO2-500-AK2 material contains nominally 500 {micro}m kernels of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) coated with all TRISO layers (buffer, inner pyrocarbon, silicon carbide, and outer pyrocarbon). The ZrO2-500-AK2 material was created for: (1) irradiation testing in the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) and (2) limited dissemination to laboratories as deemed appropriate to the AGR program. This material was created midway into a TRISO fuel development program to accommodate a sudden opportunity to perform irradiation testing on surrogate material. While the layer deposition processes were chosen based on the best technical understanding at the time, technical progress at ORNL has led to an evolution in the perceived optimal deposition conditions since the createion of ZrO2-500-AK2. Thus, ZrO2-500-AK2 contains a reasonable TRISO microstructure, but does differ significanly from currently produced TRISO surrogates and fuel at ORNL. In this document, characterization data of the ZrO2-500-AK2 surrogate includes: size, shape, coating thickness, and density.

Texture and pyramidal slip in Ti, Zr and their alloys  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Zirconium, titanium and their alloys have a high anisotropic plastic behavior. One way to show this behavior is to analyze the evolution of the Lankford coefficient (R ([alpha]), values of which are obtained from tensile tests along different directions in the sheet plane). The variation of R([alpha]) can be explained from the crystallographic texture and the active deformation mechanisms. Microstructural observations show that prismatic slip is the most active deformation mode in these materials, but no dimensional change in the [lt][bar c][gt] direction of grains is possible by the activation of the (10[bar 1]0) [lt] 1[bar 2]10[gt] slip alone; so deformation along [0001] has to be accommodated either by (10[bar 1]o) [lt]1[bar 2]13[gt] (or [lt][bar c] + [bar a][gt]) pyramidal slip or by twinning. Many transmission electron microscopy (TEM) studies have shown evidence for [lt][bar c] + [bar a][gt] slip activity, and some authors have reported slip on (1[bar 1]01) planes in Ti alloys. The purpose of this paper is to contribute with another analysis of pyramidal slip activity in hcp textured materials, such as Ti and Zr alloys, and of the hardening mechanisms for this deformation mode. This analysis is performed both in a direct way, by means of TEM observations of deformed samples, and in an indirect way, by different mechanical tests.

Swift heavy ion irradiation-induced microstructure modification on two delta-phase oxides: Sc4Zr3O12 and Lu4Zr3O12  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Swift gold ions (185 MeV) were used to systematically investigate the radiation damage response of delta phase compounds Sc{sub 4}Zr{sub 3}O{sub 12} and Lu{sub 4}Zr{sub 3}O{sub 12} in the electronic energy loss regime. Ion irradiation-induced microstructural modifications were examined using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). XRD investigations indicate a phase transformation from ordered rhombohedral to disordered fluorite (O-D) in both compounds, with the Sc compound transforming at a higher ion fluence compared with the Lu compound. This result is consistent with our previous study on Sc{sub 4}Zr{sub 3}O{sub 12} and Lu{sub 4}Zr{sub 3}O{sub 12} under displacive radiation environment in which the nuclear energy loss is dominant. High resolution TEM revealed that individual ion tracks maintains crystalline structure where the core region experiences an O-D phase transformation. TEM observation also suggests that the O-D phase transformation occurs through the ion range after overlapping of ion tracks.

Morphology evolution of ZrB{sub 2} nanoparticles synthesized by sol-gel method  

SciTech Connect

Zirconium diboride (ZrB{sub 2}) nanoparticles were synthesized by sol-gel method using zirconium n-propoxide (Zr(OPr){sub 4}), boric acid (H{sub 3}BO{sub 3}), sucrose (C{sub 12}H{sub 22}O{sub 11}), and acetic acid (AcOH). Clearly, it was a non-aqueous solution system at the very beginning of the reactions. Here, AcOH was used as both chemical modifier and solvent to control Zr(OPr){sub 4} hydrolysis. Actually, AcOH could dominate the hydrolysis by self-produced water of the chemical propulsion, rather than the help of outer water. C{sub 12}H{sub 22}O{sub 11} was selected, since it can be completely decomposed to carbon. Thus, carbon might be accounted precisely for the carbothermal reduction reaction. Furthermore, we investigated the influence of the gelation temperature on the morphology of ZrB{sub 2} particles. Increasing the gelation temperature, the particle shapes changed from sphere-like particles at 65 deg. C to a particle chain at 75 deg. C, and then form rod-like particles at 85 deg. C. An in-depth HRTEM observation revealed that the nanoparticles of ZrB{sub 2} were gradually fused together to evolve into a particle chain, finally into a rod-like shape. These crystalline nature of ZrB{sub 2} related to the gelation temperature obeyed the 'oriented attachment mechanism' of crystallography. - Graphical Abstract: Increasing the gelation temperature, the particle shapes changed from sphere-like particles at 65 deg.

Low-lying Collective States in {sup 136}Ba  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Low-lying collective states in {sup 136}Ba were investigated with (n,n'{gamma}) techniques, including Doppler-shift attenuation lifetime measurements. The level spins, lifetimes, branching ratios, multipole-mixing ratios and transition strengths reveal candidates for symmetric-phonon states up to third order. The 2{sub ms}{sup +} mixed-symmetry state was confirmed as unfragmented and a candidate for a [2{sub 1}{sup +} x 2{sub ms}{sup +}]{sub 3}{sup +} two-phonon mixed-symmetry state is proposed.

Self-interstitial configurations in hcp Zr: a first principles analysis  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Analysis of microstructure evolution in irradiated Zr and Zr alloys based on the modern radiation damage theory suggests some important features of self-interstitial atoms (SIAs). Alignment of vacancy loops and voids along basal planes requires anisotropic interstitial transport with a dominant contribution along the basal plane. Under neutron irradiation this can be explained by one-dimensional mobility of SIA clusters but experiments under electron irradiation indicate unambiguously that even the single SIA should exhibit anisotropic diffusion. No experimental information is available on SIA properties in Zr and the data obtained by ab initio calculations within the last decade reported stable SIA configurations that should provide essentially three-dimensional diffusion. To clarify this issue, an extensive investigation of SIAs in Zr has been performed from first principles using two different codes. It was demonstrated that simulation cell size, type of pseudopotential, the exchange-correlation functional, and the c/a ratio are crucially important for determining the properties of interstitials in hcp Zr. The most stable SIA configurations lie in the basal plane, which should lead to SIA diffusion mainly along basal planes. The results provide a confirmation of basic mechanisms for microstructural evolution under irradiation.

The Structural Disorder and Lattice Stability of (Ba,Sr)(Co,Fe)O3 Complex Perovskites  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The structural disorder and lattice stability of complex perovskite (Ba,Sr)(Co,Fe)O3, a promising cathode material for solid oxide fuel cells and oxygen permeation membranes, is explored by means of first principles DFT calculations. It is predicted that Ba and Sr ions easily exchange their lattice positions (A-cation disorder) similarly to Co and Fe ions (B-cation disorder). The cation antisite defects (exchange of A- and B-type cations) have a relatively high formation energy. The BSCF is predicted to exist in an equilibrium mixture of several phases and can decompose exothermically into the Ba- and Co-rich hexagonal (Ba,Sr)CoO3 and Sr- and Fe-rich cubic (Ba,Sr)FeO3 perovskites.

Processing of U-2.5Zr-7.5Nb and U-3Zr-9Nb alloys by sintering process  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

To minimize the risk of nuclear proliferation, there is worldwide interest in reducing fuel enrichment of research and test reactors. To achieve this objective while still guaranteeing criticality and cycle length requirements, there is need of developing high density uranium metallic fuels. Alloying elements such as Zr, Nb and Mo are added to uranium to improve fuel performance in reactors. In this context, the Centro de Desenvolvimento da Tecnologia Nuclear (CDTN) is developing the U-2.5Zr-7.5Nb and U-3Zr-9Nb (weight %) alloys by the innovative process of sintering that utilizes raw materials in the form of powders. The powders were pressed at 400 MPa and then sintered under a vacuum of about 1x10{sup -4} Torr at temperatures ranging from 1050 deg. to 1500 deg.C. The densities of the alloys were measured geometrically and by hydrostatic method and the phases identified by X ray diffraction (XRD). The microstructures of the pellets were observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the alloying elements were analyzed by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS). The results obtained showed the fuel density to slightly increase with the sintering temperature. The highest density achieved was approximately 80% of theoretical density. It was observed in the pellets a superficial oxide layer formed during the sintering process. (authors)

Electrical and gas-sensitive properties of nanostructured SnO{sub 2}:ZrO{sub 2} semiconductor films  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The results of a study of the effect of atomic composition of metal-oxide semiconductor composites SnO{sub 2}:ZrO{sub 2} on the surface morphology, polycrystal grain size, resistivity, concentration, free-carrier mobility, and gas-sensitive properties of thin films (0.5-2.5 {mu}m) are presented. Films SnO{sub 2} with ZrO{sub 2} additives (the Zr content was varied from 0.5 to 4.6 at %) are grown by reactive ion-beam sputtering of metal targets of different compositions in a controlled Ar + O{sub 2} atmosphere. Using transmission electron microscopy, atomic-force microscopy, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, it is experimentally shown that, as the Zr content increases in the SnO{sub 2}:ZrO{sub 2} film composition, the polycrystal grain size decreases from 45 to 10 nm, the free-carrier concentration decreases almost by four orders of magnitude and the mobility increases by approximately nine times. As the Zr content increases in the SnO{sub 2}:ZrO{sub 2} film from 0.5 to 4.6 at %, the temperature of maximum gas sensitivity of films to such gases as ethanol, isopropyl alcohol, and acetone decreases by 100-190 Degree-Sign C.

The SuperWASP wide-field exoplanetary transit survey: Candidates from Fields 23hr < RA < 03hr  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Photometric transit surveys promise to complement the currently known sample of extra-solar planets by providing additional information on the planets and especially their radii. Here we present extra-solar planet (ESP) candidates from one such survey called, the Wide Angle Search for Planets (WASP) obtained with the SuperWASP wide-field imaging system. Observations were taken with SuperWASP-North located in La Palma during the April to October 2004 observing season. The data cover fields between 23hr and 03hr in RA at declinations above +12. This amounts to over $\\approx$400,000 stars with V magnitudes 8 to 13.5. For the stars brighter than 12.5, we achieve better than 1 percent photometric precision. Here we present 41 sources with low amplitude variability between $\\approx$ 1 and 10 mmag, from which we select 12 with periods between 1.2 and 4.4 days as the most promising extrasolar planet candidates. We discuss the properties of these ESP candidates, the expected fraction of transits recovered for our sample, and implications for the frequency and detection of hot-Jupiters.

We have calculated the atomic electric dipole moments (EDMs) induced in ^{199}Hg, ^{129}Xe, ^{223}Rn, ^{225}Ra, and ^{239}Pu by their respective nuclear Schiff moments S. The results are (in units 10^{-17}S(e {fm}^{3})^{-1}e cm): d(^{199}Hg)=-2.8, d(^{129}Xe)=0.38, d(^{223}Rn)=3.3, d(^{225}Ra)=-8.5, d(^{239}Pu)=-11. We have also calculated corrections to the parity- and time-invariance-violating (P,T-odd) spin-axis interaction constant in TlF. These results are important for the interpretation of atomic and molecular experiments on EDMs in terms of fundamental P,T-odd parameters.

Photoluminescent BaMoO{sub 4} nanopowders prepared by complex polymerization method (CPM)  

SciTech Connect

The BaMoO{sub 4} nanopowders were prepared by the Complex Polymerization Method (CPM). The structure properties of the BaMoO{sub 4} powders were characterized by FTIR transmittance spectra, X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectra, photoluminescence spectra (PL) and high-resolution scanning electron microscopy (HR-SEM). The XRD, FTIR and Raman data showed that BaMoO{sub 4} at 300 deg. C was disordered. At 400 deg. C and higher temperature, BaMoO{sub 4} crystalline scheelite-type phases could be identified, without the presence of additional phases, according to the XRD, FTIR and Raman data. The calculated average crystallite sizes, calculated by XRD, around 40 nm, showed the tendency to increase with the temperature. The crystallite sizes, obtained by HR-SEM, were around of 40-50 nm. The sample that presented the highest intensity of the red emission band was the one heat treated at 400 deg. C for 2 h, and the sample that displayed the highest intensity of the green emission band was the one heat treated at 700 deg. C for 2 h. The CPM was shown to be a low cost route for the production of BaMoO{sub 4} nanopowders, with the advantages of lower temperature, smaller time and reduced cost. The optical properties observed for BaMoO{sub 4} nanopowders suggested that this material is a highly promising candidate for photoluminescent applications.

Estimating calibration equations for predicting Ra-226 soil concentrations using RTRAK in-situ detectors at the Ambrosia Lake, New Mexico, Umtra site  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This report describes a field study conducted at the Ambrosia Lake, New Mexico, UMTRA site to obtain data for calibrating the RTRAK Sodium Iodide (NaI) detectors for estimating concentrations of Ra-226 in surface soil. The statistical analyses indicate that the data are useful for estimating the calibration equations. Several statistical models are used to evaluate which model is best as a basis for the calibration equations. A procedure is provided for using the estimated calibration equations and extensive RTRAK measurements to estimate the average Ra-226 concentration on 100-m/sup 2/ land areas to determine whether additional remedial action is needed. The UMTRA Project office proposes to use the RTRAK for cleanup verification of surface Ra-226 contamination. The system enables 100% coverage of areas having undergone remedial action. The sensitivity of the system enables verification at less than 5 pCi/g averaged over 100 m/sup 2/, as specified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards (40 CFR Part 192). This analysis demonstrates RTRAK's ability to meet reasonable standards of statistical accuracy, using commonly accepted procedures. 5 refs., 8 figs., 1 tab.

Devitrification kinetics and phase selection mechanisms in Cu-Zr metallic glasses  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Metallic glasses have been a promising class of materials since their discovery in the 1960s. Indeed, remarkable chemical, mechanical and physical properties have attracted considerable attention, and several excellent reviews are available. Moreover, the special group of glass forming alloys known as the bulk metallic glasses (BMG) become amorphous solids even at relatively low cooling rates, allowing them to be cast in large cross sections, opening the scope of potential applications to include bulk forms and net shape structural applications. Recent studies have been reported for new bulk metallic glasses produced with lower cooling rates, from 0.1 to several hundred K/s. Some of the application products of BMGs include sporting goods, high performance springs and medical devices. Several rapid solidification techniques, including melt-spinning, atomization and surface melting have been developed to produce amorphous alloys. The aim of all these methods is to solidify the liquid phase rapidly enough to suppress the nucleation and growth of crystalline phases. Furthermore, the production of amorphous/crystalline composite (ACC) materials by partial crystallization of amorphous precursor has recently given rise to materials that provide better mechanical and magnetic properties than the monolithic amorphous or crystalline alloys. In addition, these advances illustrate the broad untapped potential of using the glassy state as an intermediate stage in the processing of new materials and nanostructures. These advances underlie the necessity of investigations on prediction and control of phase stability and microstructural dynamics during both solidification and devitrification processes. This research presented in this dissertation is mainly focused on Cu-Zr and Cu-Zr-Al alloy systems. The Cu-Zr binary system has high glass forming ability in a wide compositional range (35-70 at.% Cu). Thereby, Cu-Zr based alloys have attracted much attention according to fundamental research on the behaviors of glass forming alloys. Further motivation arising from the application of this system as a basis for many BMGs and ACC materials; the Cu-Zr system warrants this attention and offers great potential for the development of new materials. However, the prediction and control of microstructural evolution during devitrification remains challenging because of the complex devitrification behavior of the Cu-Zr binary alloy which is arising from the competition of metastable and stable phases and diversity of crystal structures. This dissertation details a systematic fundamental investigation into the mechanisms and kinetics of the various crystallization transformation processes involved in the overall devitrification response of Cu-Zr and Cu-Zr-Al glasses. Various isothermal and nonisothermal treatments are employed, and the structural response is characterized using bulk X-ray and thermal analysis methods as well as nanoscale microscopic analysis methods, revealing structural and chemical details down to the atomic-scale. By carefully combining techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), in-situ synchrotron high energy X-ray diffraction (HEXRD), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to quantify the characterization transformations, this research has uncovered numerous details concerning the atomistic mechanisms of crystallization and has provided much new understanding related to the dominant phases, the overall reaction sequences, and the rate-controlling mechanisms. As such this work represents a substantial step forward in understanding these transformations and provides a clear framework for further progress toward ultimate application of controlled devitrification processing for the production of new materials with remarkable properties.

Band offsets in ZrO{sub 2}/InGaZnO{sub 4} heterojunction  

SciTech Connect

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was used to measure the energy discontinuity in the valence band ( White-Up-Pointing-Triangle E{sub V}) of amorphous InGaZnO{sub 4} (a-IGZO)/ZrO{sub 2} heterostructure deposited by DC and RF sputtering at room temperature, respectively. A value of White-Up-Pointing-Triangle E{sub V}= 0 eV was obtained by using the Ga and Zn 2p{sup 3} and In 3d{sup 3} energy levels as references. Given the experimental band gap of 3.1 eV and 5.8 eV for the a-IGZO and ZrO{sub 2}, respectively, this would indicate a conduction band offset of 2.7 eV in the system.

A Novel Zr-1Nb Alloy and a New Look at Hydriding  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A novel Zr-1Nb has begun development based on a working model that takes into account the hydrogen permeabilities for zirconium and niobium metals. The beta-Nb secondary phase particles (SPPs) in Zr-1Nb are believed to promote more rapid hydrogen dynamics in the alloy in comparison to other zirconium alloys. Furthermore, some hydrogen release is expected at the lower temperatures corresponding to outages when the partial pressure of H2 in the coolant is less. These characteristics lessen the negative synergism between corrosion and hydriding that is otherwise observed in cladding alloys without niobium. In accord with the working model, development of nanoscale precursors was initiated to enhance the performance of existing Zr-1Nb alloys. Their characteristics and properties can be compared to oxide-dispersion strengthened alloys, and material additions have been proposed to zirconium-based LWR cladding to guard further against hydriding and to fix the size of the SPPs for microstructure stability enhancements. A preparative route is being investigated that does not require mechanical alloying, and 10 nanometer molybdenum particles have been prepared which are part of the nanoscale precursors. If successful, the approach has implications for long term dry storage of used fuel and for new routes to nanoferritic and ODS alloys.

Structure and magnetic properties of the cubic oxide fluoride BaFeO{sub 2}F  

SciTech Connect

Fluorination of the parent oxide, BaFeO{sub 3-{delta}}, with polyvinylidine fluoride gives rise to a cubic compound with a=4.0603(4) A at 298 K. {sup 57}Fe Moessbauer spectra confirmed that all the iron is present as Fe{sup 3+}. Neutron diffraction data showed complete occupancy of the anion sites, indicating a composition BaFeO{sub 2}F, with a large displacement of the iron off-site. The magnetic ordering temperature was determined as T{sub N}=645{+-}5 K. Neutron diffraction data at 4.2 K established G-type antiferromagnetism with a magnetic moment per Fe{sup 3+} ion of 3.95 {mu}{sub B}. However, magnetisation measurements indicated the presence of a weak ferromagnetic moment that is assigned to the canting of the antiferromagnetic structure. {sup 57}Fe Moessbauer spectra in the temperature range 10-300 K were fitted with a model of fluoride ion distribution that retains charge neutrality of the perovskite unit cell. - Graphical abstract: The cubic oxide fluoride of composition BaFeO{sub 2}F has been synthesised and characterised. Highlights: > Fluorination of BaFeO{sub 3-{delta}} with polyvinylidene fluoride gives a cubic oxide fluoride of composition BaFeO{sub 2}F. > BaFeO{sub 2}F adopts a canted antiferromagnetic structure and is different from the related phase of composition SrFeO{sub 2}F. > A model of fluoride ion distribution about iron in BaFeO{sub 2}F has been explored.

Ba-ion extraction from a high pressure Xe gas for double-beta decay studies with EXO  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

An experimental setup is being developed to extract Ba ions from a high-pressure Xe gas environment. It aims to transport Ba ions from 10 bar Xe to vacuum conditions. The setup utilizes a converging-diverging nozzle in combination with a radio-frequency (RF) funnel to move Ba ions into vacuum through the pressure drop of several orders of magnitude. This technique is intended to be used in a future multi-ton detector investigating double-beta decay in $^{136}$Xe. Efficient extraction and detection of Ba ions, the decay product of Xe, would allow for a background-free measurement of the $^{136}$Xe double-beta decay.

Colloidal synthesis of BaF2 nanoparticles and their application as fillers in polymer nanocomposites  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Nanoparticles of pure and Eu-doped BaF2 have been prepared through sol-gel colloidal synthesis. In addition, BaF2 filled PMMA polymer nanocomposites were fabricated and dielectric properties were measured. The as-synthesized pure and Eu-doped BaF2 nanoparticles were analyzed by both X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy and consisted of crystalline BaF2 particles with an average diameter of 13.6 nm with a standard deviation of about 2.4 nm. The photoluminescence properties of the pure and Eu-doped (2%, 4% and 8%) nanoparticles showed characteristic emission of Eu3+ (5D0 7FJ (J=1-4) transitions). We also measured significantly enhanced dielectric breakdown strength of up to 30% for BaF2 nanocomposites over the unfilled PMMA polymer. This study thus offers some promise of sol-gel synthesis of nanocomposite dielectrics with great potential for use as electrical insulation materials in cryogenic high voltage applications.

Formation of tetragonal or monoclinic ZrO{sub 2} coatings by oxygen plasma treatment of Zr{sub 74.7}Cu{sub 19.7}Nb{sub 5.6} glassy thin films  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The authors report on the production of stable nanostructured tetragonal and/or monoclinic ZrO{sub 2} nanopillars achieved by means of oxygen plasma treatment of ternary Zr{sub 74.7}Cu{sub 19.7}Nb{sub 5.6} glassy films. The Zr-based metallic glass thin films were successfully deposited by magnetron sputtering and subsequently subjected to oxygen plasma for various exposure times. The compositions of the oxidized films were determined by Auger electron spectroscopy and X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy depth profiling while the surface morphology was evaluated by means of atomic force microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. X-Ray diffraction was used for the structural analysis. Our results show that, depending on the length of time of oxygen plasma treatment, tetragonal and/or monoclinic ZrO{sub 2} films can be formed, the surface morphology of which exhibit nanopillar structures with an increased effective surface. These findings provide an easy and efficient way for growing ZrO{sub 2} coatings with a predefined structure suitable for protective and possibly for catalytic applications.

Itinerant antiferromagnetism in BaCr2As2: Experimental characterization and electronic structure calculations  

SciTech Connect

We report single crystal synthesis, specific heat and resistivity measurements and electronic structure calculations for BaCr2As2. This material is a metal with itinerant antiferromagnetism, similar to the parent phases of Fe-based high temperature superconductors, but differs in magnetic order. Comparison of bare band structure density of states and the low temperature specific heat implies a mass renormalization of 2. BaCr2As2 shows stronger transition metal - pnictogen covalency than the Fe compounds, and in this respect is more similar to BaMn2As2. This provides an explanation for the observation that Ni and Co doping is effective in the Fe-based superconductors, but Cr or Mn doping is not.

Surface Geometric and Electronic Structures of BaFe2As2(001)  

SciTech Connect

BaFe{sub 2}As{sub 2} exhibits properties that are characteristic of the parent compounds of the newly discovered iron (Fe)-based high-T{sub c} superconductors. By combining real-space imaging of scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy (STM+STS) with momentum-space quantitative low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), we have identified the surface plane of cleaved BaFe{sub 2}As{sub 2} crystals as the As terminated Fe-As layer - the plane where superconductivity occurs. LEED and STM+STS data on the BaFe{sub 2}As{sub 2}(001) surface indicate an ordered arsenic (As) terminated metallic surface without reconstruction or lattice distortion. It is surprising that STM images the different Fe-As orbitals associated with the orthorhombic structure, but not the As atoms in the surface plane.

Improved MCFC performance with Li/Na/Ba/Ca carbonate electrolyte.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Earlier electrolyte segregation tests of Li/Na carbonate used chemical analysis such as inductively coupled plasma/atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP/AES) of matrix strips wetted with carbonate and exposed to 5- to 20-V potential gradients. A segregation factor was correlated to the Li/Na carbonate composition. While fairly substantial segregation occurs at the eutectic composition of 52% Li, it is minimal at 60% to 75% Li. Such lithium-rich Li/Na carbonates may not be practical because the melting points are too high (i.e., liquidus point is 625 C). By adding calcium and barium to the lithium/sodium carbonates, we were able to lower the melting point and maintain nonsegregating behavior. This work is directed at examining the long-term stability of the quaternary Li/Na/Ba/Ca electrolytes. Electrolyte optimization work evaluates Li/Na ratio and Ba/Ca level to improve cell performance at 320 mA/cm{sup 2} and reduce temperature sensitivity. A number of cells with quaternary Li/Na/Ba/Ca electrolytes ranging from 3 to 5% Ba/Ca have operated well with stable, long-term performance. Congruent melting carbonate is important for commercial development. The best so far is 3.5% Ba/Ca/Na/Li (3.5 mol%/3.5 mol% Ba/Ca) carbonate (m.p. 440 C). Performance at 160 mA/cm{sup 2} is increased up to 150mV as compared with the baseline cell containing the Li/Na eutectic composition. Life stability has been reproduced by a number of bench-scale MCFC test with operations of 2000-4300 h and the electrolyte composition across the matrix little changed.

Light-induced structural changes in Eu-doped (Pb,La)(Zr,Ti)O{sub 3} ceramics  

SciTech Connect

Fluorescence spectra of poled and unpoled Eu-doped (Pb,La)(Zr,Ti)O{sub 3} ceramics with various compositions were measured using 580 nm excitation. The ratio of the intensities of the Eu{sup 3+} {sup 5}D{sub 0}{yields}{sup 7}F{sub 2}/{sup 5}D{sub 0}{yields}{sup 7}F{sub 1} fluorescence transitions was used as an indicator for the symmetry of the Eu{sup 3+} site. As the symmetry decreases, the ratio increases. Increasing the Zr content in (Pb,La)(Zr,Ti)O{sub 3} increases the ratio, indicating that the symmetry of the Eu{sup 3+} site decreases. Exposure of the Eu-doped (Pb,La)(Zr,Ti)O{sub 3} samples to UV light also increases the intensity ratio, indicating that UV light exposure leads to structural distortions in Eu-doped (Pb,La)(Zr,Ti)O{sub 3} samples, lowering the Eu{sup 3+} site symmetry.

Recently we measured the ratio of K-shell internal conversion coefficients, alpha(K), for the 127.5-keV E3 transition in (134)Cs and the 661.7-keV M4 transition in (137)Ba. We here report a measurement of the 165.9-keV M1 transition in (139)La, based on which we convert our earlier ratio measurement into individual aK values for the transitions in (134)Cs and (137)Ba. These results continue to confirm the Dirac-Fock calculations of internal conversion coefficients that incorporate the atomic K-shell vacancy.

Energy Calibration of the BaBar EMC Using the Pi0 Invariant Mass Method  

SciTech Connect

The BaBar electromagnetic calorimeter energy calibration method was compared with the local and global peak iteration procedures, of Crystal Barrel and CLEO-II. An investigation was made of the possibility of {Upsilon}(4S) background reduction which could lead to increased statistics over a shorter time interval, for efficient calibration runs. The BaBar software package was used with unreconstructed data to study the energy response of the calorimeter, by utilizing the {pi}{sup 0} mass constraint on pairs of photon clusters.

Beta-decay properties of Zr and Mo neutron-rich isotopes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Gamow-Teller strength distributions, beta-decay half-lives, and beta-delayed neutron emission are investigated in neutron-rich Zr and Mo isotopes within a deformed quasiparticle random-phase approximation. The approach is based on a self-consistent Skyrme Hartree-Fock mean field with pairing correlations and residual separable particle-hole and particle-particle forces. Comparison with recent measurements of half-lives stresses the important role that nuclear deformation plays in the description of beta-decay properties in this mass region.

Fundamental science investigations to develop a 6-MV laser triggered gas switch for ZR: first annual report.  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In October 2005, an intensive three-year Laser Triggered Gas Switch (LTGS) development program was initiated to investigate and solve observed performance and reliability issues with the LTGS for ZR. The approach taken has been one of mission-focused research: to revisit and reassess the design, to establish a fundamental understanding of LTGS operation and failure modes, and to test evolving operational hypotheses. This effort is aimed toward deploying an initial switch for ZR in 2007, on supporting rolling upgrades to ZR as the technology can be developed, and to prepare with scientific understanding for the even higher voltage switches anticipated needed for future high-yield accelerators. The ZR LTGS was identified as a potential area of concern quite early, but since initial assessments performed on a simplified Switch Test Bed (STB) at 5 MV showed 300-shot lifetimes on multiple switch builds, this component was judged acceptable. When the Z{sub 20} engineering module was brought online in October 2003 frequent flashovers of the plastic switch envelope were observed at the increased stresses required to compensate for the programmatically increased ZR load inductance. As of October 2006, there have been 1423 Z{sub 20} shots assessing a variety of LTGS designs. Numerous incremental and fundamental switch design modifications have been investigated. As we continue to investigate the LTGS, the basic science of plastic surface tracking, laser triggering, cascade breakdown, and optics degradation remain high-priority mission-focused research topics. Significant progress has been made and, while the switch does not yet achieve design requirements, we are on the path to develop successively better switches for rolling upgrade improvements to ZR. This report summarizes the work performed in FY 2006 by the large team. A high-level summary is followed by detailed individual topical reports.

Synthesis and Structure Determination of Ferromagnetic Semiconductors LaAMnSnO6 (A = Sr Ba)  

SciTech Connect

LaAMnSnO{sub 6} (A = Sr, Ba) have been synthesized by high temperature solid-state reactions under dynamic 1% H{sub 2}/Ar flow. Rietveld refinements on room temperature powder X-ray diffraction data indicate that LaSrMnSnO{sub 6} crystallizes in the GdFeO{sub 3}-structure, with space group Pnma and, combined with transmission electron microscopy, LaBaMnSnO{sub 6} in Imma. Both space groups are common in disordered double-perovskites. The Mn{sup 3+} and Sn{sup 4+} ions whose valence states were confirmed by X-ray absorption spectroscopy, are completely disordered over the B-sites and the BO{sub 6} octahedra are slightly distorted. LaAMnSnO{sub 6} are ferromagnetic semiconductors with a T{sub C} = 83 K for the Sr- and 66 K for the Ba-compound. The title compounds, together with the previously reported LaCaMnSnO{sub 6} provide an interesting example of progression from Pnma to Imma as the tolerance factor increases. An analysis of the relationship between space group and tolerance factor for the series LaAMnMO{sub 6} (A = Ca, Sr, Ba; M = Sn, Ru) provides a better understanding of the symmetry determination for double perovskites.

Determination of the displacement energy of O, Si and Zr under electron beam irradiation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The response of nanocrystalline, stabilizer-free cubic zirconia thin films on a Si substrate to electron beam irradiation with energies of 4, 110 and 200 keV and fluences up to {approx}1.5 x 10{sup 22} e m{sup -2} has been studied to determine the displacement energies. The 110 and 200 keV irradiations were performed in situ using a transmission electron microscope; the 4 keV irradiations were performed ex situ using an electron gun. In all three irradiations, no structural modification of the zirconia was observed, despite the high fluxes and fluences. However the Si substrate on which the zirconia film was deposited was amorphized under the 200 keV electron irradiation. Examination of the electron-solid interactions reveals that the kinetic energy transfer from the 200 keV electrons to the silicon lattice is sufficient to cause atomic displacements, resulting in amorphization. The kinetic energy transfer from the 200 keV electrons to the oxygen sub-lattice of the zirconia may be sufficient to induce defect production, however, no evidence of defect production was observed. The displacement cross-section value of Zr was found to be {approx}400 times greater than that of O indicating that the O atoms are effectively screened from the electrons by the Zr atoms, and, therefore, the displacement of O is inefficient.

Excellent Sulfur Resistance of Pt/BaO/CeO2 Lean NOx Trap Catalysts  

SciTech Connect

In this work, we investigated the NOx storage behavior of Pt-BaO/CeO2 catalysts, especially in the presence of SO2. High surface area CeO2 (~ 110 m2/g) with a rod like morphology was synthesized and used as a support. The Pt-BaO/CeO2 sample demonstrated slightly higher NOx conversion in the entire temperature range studied compared with Pt-BaO/?-Al2O3. More importantly, this ceria-based catalyst showed higher sulfur tolerance than the alumina-based one. The time of complete NOx uptake was maintained even after exposing the sample to ~3 g/L of SO2. The same sulfur exposure, on the other hand, eliminated the complete NOx uptake time on the alumina-based NOx storage catalysts. TEM images show no evidence of either Pt sintering or BaS phase formation during reductive de-sulfation up to 600C on the ceria based catalyst, while the same process over the alumina-based catalyst resulted in both a significant increase in the average Pt cluster size and the agglomeration of a newly-formed BaS phase into large crystallites. XPS results revealed the presence of about 5 times more residual sulfur after reductive de-sulfation at 600C on the alumina based catalysts in comparison with the ceria-based ones. All of these results strongly support that, besides their superior intrinsic NOx uptake properties, ceria based catalysts have a) much higher sulfur tolerance and b) excellent resistance against Pt sintering when they are compared to the widely used alumina based catalysts.

Cyclic nanoindentation studies on CrN thin films prepared by RF sputtering on Zr-based metallic glass  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Cyclic nanoindentation tests were carried out to study the influence of the chromium nitride thin films on the mechanical properties of Zr-based metallic glass. Chromium nitride thin coatings have been deposited on Zr{sub 50}Cu{sub 40}Al{sub 10} metallic glass substrate by RF sputtering. The deposition process was done at room temperature under nitrogen reactive gas using a metallic chromium target. The CrN films have a thickness of 300 nm. Several cyclic nanoindentation measurements were conducted on CrN films and Zr{sub 50}Cu{sub 40}Al{sub 10} metallic glass substrate samples at various loading rate values. We have found that the coated metallic glass sample shows high mechanical properties such as hardness and reduced elastic modulus. Cyclic nanoindentation results show a hardening behaviour for these CrN coatings. Moreover, the CrN coated on Zr-based metallic glass was found to have a high value of resistance to crack propagation, as being analysed through the SEM pictures of the residual Vickers indentation impressions.

Multinucleon transfer reactions for the {sup 28}Si+{sup 90,94}Zr systems in the region below and near the Coulomb barrier  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Measurements on multinucleon transfer reactions for {sup 28}Si+{sup 90,94}Zr systems were performed at sub- and near-barrier energies. The fact that {sup 90}Zr has a closed neutron shell (N = 50) and {sup 94}Zr has four neutrons outside the closed shell, allows us to investigate the effects of shell closure and pairing correlation on multinucleon transfer mechanism. The experiment was performed with pulsed {sup 28}Si beam using the Heavy Ion Reaction Analyzer (HIRA) at Inter University Accelerator Centre (IUAC), New Delhi. Based on the Q-value considerations, it turned out that pickup channels were neutron transfer whereas stripping channels were proton transfer. For the {sup 28}Si+{sup 90}Zr system, the values of the slope parameter for two-neutron pickup turned out to be less than that for one-neutron pickup. The values of the slope parameter were almost the same for two-, three-, and four-neutron pickup channels in the case of the {sup 28}Si+{sup 94}Zr system. The transfer probabilities in the case of the {sup 28}Si+{sup 94}Zr system were much larger than those for the {sup 28}Si+{sup 90}Zr system, further supporting the fact that there is a correlation between the transfer channels and sub-barrier fusion cross-section enhancement. An odd-even staggering was observed in the extracted transfer probabilities at the barrier radius implying the role of pairing correlation in transfer reactions.

Pre- and post-irradiation characterization and properties measurements of ZrC coated surrogate TRISO particles  

SciTech Connect

Zirconium carbide is a candidate to either replace or supplement silicon carbide as a coating material in TRISO fuel particles for high temperature gas-cooled reactor fuels. Six sets of ZrC coated surrogate microsphere samples, fabricated by the Japan Atomic Energy Agency using the fluidized bed chemical vapor deposition method, were irradiated in the High Flux Isotope Reactor at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. These developmental samples available for the irradiation experiment were in conditions of either as-fabricated coated particles or particles that had been heat-treated to simulate the fuel compacting process. Five sets of samples were composed of nominally stoichiometric compositions, with the sixth being richer in carbon (C/Zr = 1.4). The samples were irradiated at 800 and 1250 C with fast neutron fluences of 2 and 6 dpa. Post-irradiation, the samples were retrieved from the irradiation capsules followed by microstructural examination performed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Low Activation Materials Development and Analysis Laboratory. This work was supported by the US Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy's Advanced Gas Reactor program as part of International Nuclear Energy Research Initiative collaboration with Japan. This report includes progress from that INERI collaboration, as well as results of some follow-up examination of the irradiated specimens. Post-irradiation examination items included microstructural characterization, and nanoindentation hardness/modulus measurements. The examinations revealed grain size enhancement and softening as the primary effects of both heat-treatment and irradiation in stoichiometric ZrC with a non-layered, homogeneous grain structure, raising serious concerns on the mechanical suitability of these particular developmental coatings as a replacement for SiC in TRISO fuel. Samples with either free carbon or carbon-rich layers dispersed in the ZrC coatings experienced negligible grain size enhancement during both heat treatment and irradiation. However, these samples experienced irradiation induced softening similar to stoichiometric ZrC samples.

Rapid Relaxation and Embrittlement of Zr-based Bulk Metallic Glasses by Electropulsing  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Mechanical relaxation and embrittlement of Zr52.5Cu17.9Ni14.6Al10Ti5 bulk metallic glasses were achieved rapidly by the direct current electropulsing treatment. The temperature profile was recorded by an infrared camera and it was found to be non-uniform in the treated specimen. Specifically, temperatures below the glass transition temperature, near and above the crystallization temperature could be ach- ieved, respectively, at different locations in the same treated specimen. Two sets of nanoindentation were conducted. While the first set investigated the mechanical properties of three individually elec- tropulsed specimens with different conditions, the second set indented a single treated specimen along its temperature gradient. Both sets of indentation revealed that by Joule heating to different tempera- tures, relaxation, embrittlement, and crystallization were significantly accelerated by electrical pulses. Results suggest that electropulsing provides an opportunity to simultaneously achieve plastic forming and mechanical property control of metallic glasses.

These reactions are part of the nuclear reaction flow for the synthesis of the light p nuclei. For the $^{90}$Zr(p,$\\gamma$)$^{91}$Nb reaction the new measurement resolves the disagreement between previous results. For the $^{92}$Zr(p,$\\gamma$)$^{93}$Nb reaction the present work reports the first measurement of this reaction cross section. Both reaction cross sections are compared to theoretical calculations and a very good agreement with the standard NON-SMOKER model is observed.

Current scaling of axially radiated power in dynamic hohlraums and dynamic hohlraum load design for ZR.  

SciTech Connect

We present designs for dynamic hohlraum z-pinch loads on the 28 MA, 140 ns driver ZR. The scaling of axially radiated power with current in dynamic hohlraums is reviewed. With adequate stability on ZR this scaling indicates that 30 TW of axially radiated power should be possible. The performance of the dynamic hohlraum load on the 20 MA, 100 ns driver Z is extensively reviewed. The baseline z-pinch load on Z is a nested tungsten wire array imploding onto on-axis foam. Data from a variety of x-ray diagnostics fielded on Z are presented. These diagnostics include x-ray diodes, bolometers, fast x-ray imaging cameras, and crystal spectrometers. Analysis of these data indicates that the peak dynamic radiation temperature on Z is between 250 and 300 eV from a diameter less than 1 mm. Radiation from the dynamic hohlraum itself or from a radiatively driven pellet within the dynamic hohlraum has been used to probe a variety of matter associated with the dynamic hohlraum: the tungsten z-pinch itself, tungsten sliding across the end-on apertures, a titanium foil over the end aperture, and a silicon aerogel end cap. Data showing the existence of asymmetry in radiation emanating from the two ends of the dynamic hohlraum is presented, along with data showing load configurations that mitigate this asymmetry. 1D simulations of the dynamic hohlraum implosion are presented and compared to experimental data. The simulations provide insight into the dynamic hohlraum behavior but are not necessarily a reliable design tool because of the inherently 3D behavior of the imploding nested tungsten wire arrays.

Synthesis, rheology and forming of Y-Ba-Cu-O ceramics  

SciTech Connect

A chemical synthesis route is discussed which results in a low- temperature precursor to Y-Ba-Cu-O ceramics; it is based on use of molten Ba(OH){sub 2}{center_dot}8H{sub 2}O flux. Two different chemical systems have been examined; the first one, based on nitrate salts, has been demonstrated to be a viable precursor material for tape casting and extrusion; the second, made from acetate salts, has been used for powder synthesis and extrusion. Rheology of pastes shows that their flow may be fit to either Bingham Plastic or Hershel- Bulkley models. Yield stress is controlled in both pastes by volume fraction solids. Viscosity also follows solids loading in the paste. Shear thinning is controlled by colloidal nature of precursor. The paste has colloidal microstructure. Comparison of concentric cylinder rheometry and piston extrusion rheometry shows order of magnitude differences in yield stress, resulting from the test method and paste dilation.

Stability of Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O Superconducting Thin Films  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

We report the stability of TlBa{sub 2}CaCu{sub 2}O{sub 7} (Tl-1212) and Tl{sub 2}Ba{sub 2}CaCu{sub 2}O{sub 8} (T1-2212) thin films and by inference, the stability of TlBa{sub 2}Ca{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 9} (Tl-1223) and Tl{sub 2}Ba{sub 2}Ca{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 10} (Tl-2223) thin films, under a variety of conditions. In general, we observe that the stability behavior of the single Tl-O layer materials (Tl-1212 and Tl-1223)are similar and the double Tl-O layer materials (Tl-2212 and Tl-2223) are similar. All films are stable with repeated thermal cycling to cryogenic temperatures. Films are also stable in acetone and methanol. Moisture degrades film quality rapidly, especially in the form of vapor. Tl-1212 is more sensitive to vapor than Tl-2212. These materials are stable to high temperatures in either N{sub 2}, similar to vacuum for the cuprates, and O{sub 2} ambients. While total degradation of properties (superconducting and structural) occur at the same temperatures for all phases, 600 C in N{sub 2} and 700 C in O{sub 2}, the onset of degradation occurs at somewhat lower temperatures for Tl-1212 than for Tl-2212 films. In all cases, sample degradation is associated with Tl depletion from the films.

Controlling internal barrier in low loss BaTiO3 supercapacitors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Supercapacitor behavior has been reported in a number of oxides including reduced BaTiO3 ferroelectric ceramics. These so-called giant properties are however not easily controlled. We show here that the continuous coating of individual BaTiO3 grains by a silica shell in combination with Spark Plasma Sintering is a way to process bulk composites having supercapacitor features with low dielectric losses and temperature stability. The silica shell acts both as an oxidation barrier during the processing and as a dielectric barrier in the final composite. 1 Commercial supercapacitors are using polycrystalline materials in which metallic grains or foils (like tantalum) with extended specific surface are covered by their respective oxides (like tantalum oxide). The resulting barrier layers locate electronic and ionic space charges, increasing the capacitance density. While such barrier layer supercapacitors are of everyday use, 1,2 an improved control of the interfaces barrier in such advanced materials would lead to increased functionalities: higher charge storage ability, lower losses and increased cut-off frequency. We show here that individual coating of ferroelectric BaTiO3 grains by a silica shell followed by a fast sintering in reducing conditions leads to such stable

The new barium zinc mercurides Ba{sub 3}ZnHg{sub 10} and BaZn{sub 0.6}Hg{sub 3.4} - Synthesis, crystal and electronic structure  

SciTech Connect

The title compounds Ba{sub 3}ZnHg{sub 10} and BaZn{sub 0.6}Hg{sub 3.4} were synthesized from stoichiometric ratios of the elements in Ta crucibles. Their crystal structures, which both represent new structure types, have been determined using single crystal X-ray data. The structure of Ba{sub 3}ZnHg{sub 10} (orthorhombic, oP28, space group Pmmn, a=701.2(3), b=1706.9(8), c=627.3(3)pm, Z=2, R1=0.0657) contains folded 4{sup 4} Hg nets, where the meshes form the bases of flat rectangular pyramids resembling the structure of BaAl{sub 4}. The flat pyramids are connected via Hg-Zn/Hg bonds, leaving large channels at the folds, in which Ba(1) and Hg(2) atoms alternate. Whereas the remaining Hg/Zn atoms form a covalent 3D network of three- to five-bonded atoms with short M-M distances (273-301 pm; CN 9-11), the Hg(2) atoms in the channels adopt a comparatively large coordination number of 12 and increased distances (317-348 pm) to their Zn/Hg neighbours. In the structure of BaZn{sub 0.6}Hg{sub 3.4} (cubic, cI320, space group I4{sup Macron }3d, a=2025.50(7) pm, Z=64, R1=0.0440), with a chemical composition not much different from that of Ba{sub 3}ZnHg{sub 10}, the Zn/Hg atoms of the mixed positions M(1/2) are arranged in an slightly distorted primitive cubic lattice with a 4 Multiplication-Sign 4 Multiplication-Sign 4 subcell relation to the unit cell. The 24 of the originating 64 cubes contain planar cis tetramers Hg(5,6){sub 4} with Hg in a nearly trigonal planar or tetrahedral coordination. In another 24 of the small cubes, two opposing faces are decorated by Hg(3,4){sub 2} dumbbells, two by Ba(2) atoms respectively. The third type of small cubes are centered by Ba(1) atoms only. The complex 3D polyanionic Hg/Zn network thus formed is compared with the Hg partial structure in Rb{sub 3}Hg{sub 20} applying a group-subgroup relation. Despite their different overall structures, the connectivity of the negatively charged Hg atoms, the rather metallic Zn bonding characteristic (as obtained from FP-LAPW band structure calculations) and the coordination number of 16 for all Ba cations relate the two title compounds. - Graphical abstract: Six of the 64 small sub-cubes of three types (A, B, C) forming the unit cell of the Hg-rich mercuride BaZn{sub 0.6}Hg{sub 3.4}.

Proton nuclear magnetic resonance studies of hydrogen diffusion and electron tunneling in Ni-Nb-Zr-H glassy alloys  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Using the Fourier transform of the echo envelope, the proton line shapes, spin-lattice relaxation time, and spin-spin relaxation time have been measured in a (Ni{sub 0.36}Nb{sub 0.24}Zr{sub 0.40}){sub 90}H{sub 10} glassy alloy at 1.83 T ({approx}78 MHz) and at temperatures between 1.8 and 300 K. First, the spectral line width decreases abruptly between 1.8 and 2.1 K. Next, it remains almost constant at 13 kHz up to {approx}150 K. Finally, the line width decreases as the temperature increases from {approx}150 to 300 K. The initial decrease in the spectral line width is ascribed to the distribution of the external field, which is caused by the penetration of vortices in the superconducting state. The subsequent leveling off in the spectral line width is ascribed to the dipole-dipole interaction between protons when hydrogen atoms are trapped into vacancies among the Zr-centered icosahedral Zr{sub 5}Ni{sub 5}Nb{sub 3} clusters. The final decrease in the spectral line width is ascribed to the motional narrowing of the width that is caused by the movement of hydrogen atoms. The temperature dependences of the spin-lattice and spin-spin relaxation time showed that at temperature above 150 K and the activation energy of 8.7 kJ/mol allowed the hydrogen atoms to migrate among the clusters. The distance between the hydrogen atoms is estimated to be 2.75 A. Hydrogen occupancies among clusters in the (Ni{sub 0.36}Nb{sub 0.24}Zr{sub 0.40}){sub 90}H{sub 10} glassy alloy play an important role in the diffusion behavior and in the electronic properties of this alloy.

The Effect of Zn Addition on the Oxidation State of Cobalt in Co/ZrO2 Catalysts  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The effect of Zn promotion on the activity and selectivity of Co/ZrO{sub 2} catalysts for ethanol steam reforming was investigated. The catalysts were synthesized by incipient wetness impregnation and characterized using BET measurements, temperature programmed reduction, X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and X-ray electron spectroscopy. Compared to Co/ZrO{sub 2} catalyst, a higher ethanol conversion and a lower CH{sub 4} selectivity were observed for the Co/ZrO{sub 2} catalyst promoted with Zn. It was found that addition of Zn inhibits the oxidation of metallic cobalt (Co{sup 0}) particles, which results in a higher ratio of Co{sup 0}/Co{sup 2+} present in the Zn promoted Co/ZrO{sub 2} catalyst. These results suggest that metallic cobalt (Co{sup 0}) is responsible for ethanol conversion via ethanol dehydrogenation whereas Co{sup 2+} plays a role in the CH{sub 4} formation. For both catalysts, the experimental results show that CH4 is mainly produced via CO and/or CO{sub 2} methanation. TPR measurements, on the other hand, show Zn addition inhibits the reduction of Co{sup 2+} and Co{sup 3+}, which would mislead the conclusion that oxidized Co is required to reduce the CH{sub 4} formation. Therefore, TPR may not be appropriate to correlate the degree of metal reducibility (in this case Co{sup 0}) with the catalyst activity for reactions such as ethanol steam reforming where oxidizing conditions exist.

Start Up of a Nb-1%Zr Potassium Heat Pipe From the Frozen State  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The start up of a liquid-metal heat pipe from the frozen state was evaluated experimentally with a Nb-1%Zr heat pipe with potassium as the working fluid. The heat pipe was fabricated and tested at Los Alamos National Laboratory. RF induction heating was used to heat 13 cm of the 1-m-long heat pipe. The heat pipe and test conditions are well characterized so that the test data may be used for comparison with numerical analyses. An attempt was made during steady state tests to calibrate the heat input so that the heat input would be known during the transient cases. The heat pipe was heated to 675C with a throughput of 600 W and an input heat flux of 6 W/cm 2 . Steady state tests, start up from the frozen state, and transient variations from steady state were conducted.

Test of internal-conversion theory with measurements in Cs-134 and Ba-137  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We have measured the ratio of K-shell internal conversion coefficients, alpha(K), for the 127.5-keV E3 transition in Cs-134 and the 661.7-keV M4 transition in Ba-137. Previous measurements of these alpha(K) values led to a ratio that differed from calculated internal conversion coefficients. Our measured result, 30.01(15), disagrees with, but is a factor of three more precise than, the previous average of all experimental results. Our new result is consistent with calculations.

Density Functional Theory Study of Surface Carbonate Formation on BaO(001)  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Periodic density functional theory calculations have been used to study the formation and stability of surface carbonate on BaO(001) upon CO2 exposures. CO2 adsorbs at Lewis basic Os site forming anionic surface carbonate ( ) species until one monolayer coverage (1ML). Certain amount of electrons has been transferred from the surface to CO2 after CO2 adsorption. The adsorption energy of CO2 decreases with the increasing coverage as a combinative result of the less electrons accepted by each adsorbed CO2 and the lateral repulsive interactions. At ?CO2 0.75 ML, dramatic surface reconstruction had been found for the parallel pattern of surface carbonates that initially arranged on BaO(001). Due to strong lateral repulsion between the surface carbonates, the surface reconstruction actually pulls the surface Ba atom out of the surface plane, suggesting a possible onset of phase transition from surface carbonate overlayer to crystalline bulk-like barium carbonate. Surface free energy calculations have been performed to study the stability of surface carbonate at different temperature and pressure conditions. Our calculations indicate that surface carbonates decompose at 850 K at low coverage. For the fully covered carbonate overlayer, surface carbonate will become unstable at about 600 K. This is in good agreement with previous experimental observations. Finally, the effect of surface hydroxyl on the stability of surface carbonate is investigated. At low hydroxyl coverage, the neighboring hydroxyl stabilizes surface carbonate. On the fully hydroxylated BaO surface, the chelating bicarbonate instead of surface carbonate is formed upon CO2 adsorption. This work, performed in the Institute for Interfacial Catalysis at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), was partially supported by a PNNL Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) project. Computing time was granted by the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) under project No. m752, and also by the scientific user project (st30469) using the Molecular Science Computing Facility in the William R.

The Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is investigating UPuZr alloys with low concentrations of minor actinides (Np and Am) and rare-earth elements (La, Ce, Pr, and Nd) as possible nuclear fuels to be used to transmute minor actinides. Alloys with compositions 60U20Pu 3Am2Np15Zr, 42U30Pu5Am3Np20Zr, 59U20Pu3Am2Np1RE15Zr, 58.5U20Pu 3Am2Np1.5RE15Zr, 41U30Pu5Am3Np1RE20Zr, and 40.5U30Pu5Am3Np1.5RE 20Zr (where numbers represent weight percents of each element and RE is a rare-earth alloy consisting of 6% La, 16% Pr, 25% Ce, and 53% Nd by weight) were arc-melted and vacuum cast as fuel pins approximately 4 mmin diameter. The as-cast pins were sectioned, polished, and examined by scanning electron microscopy. Each alloy contains high-Zr inclusions surrounded by a high-actinide matrix. Alloys with rare-earth elements also contain inclusions that are high in these elements. Within the matrix, concentrations of U and Zr vary inversely, while concentrations of Np and Pu appear approximately constant. Am occurs in the matrix and with some high-rare-earth inclusions, and occasionally as high-Am inclusions in samples without rare-earth elements.

Synthesis, crystal structure, and properties of the rhombohedral modification of the thiospinel CuZr{sub 1.86(1)}S{sub 4}  

SciTech Connect

The rhombohedral modification of the thiospinel, CuZr{sub 1.86(1)}S{sub 4}, has been synthesized by the reaction of the constituent elements in an alkali metal halide flux and structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. The title compound crystallizes in the rhombohedral space group D{sub 3d}{sup 5}-R3-barm (no. 166, a=7.3552(2) A, c=35.832(2) A, V=1678.76(13) A{sup 3}, Z=12, and R/wR=0.0239/0.0624). The structure is composed of close packed S layers, with a stacking order of ...ABCBCABABCACAB....along the c axis. The Zr and Cu atoms occupy the octahedral and tetrahedral holes between S layers, respectively. Three different kinds of S-M-S layers exist in the structure: layer I has fully occupied Zr and Cu sites, layer II has fully occupied Zr sites but no Cu, and layer III has partially occupied Zr and fully occupied Cu sites. Transport and optical properties indicate that the title compound is a small band gap (1.26 eV) n-type semiconductor. - Graphical abstract: The projected view of the rhombohedral modification, CuZr{sub 1.86(1)}S{sub 4}, down the [100] direction.

High-pressure structural phase transitions in chromium-doped BaFe2As2  

SciTech Connect

We report on the results from high pressure x-ray powder diffraction and electrical resistance measurements for hole doped BaFe{sub 2-x}Cr{sub x}As{sub 2} (x = 0, 0.05, 0.15, 0.4, 0.61) up to 81 GPa and down to 10 K using a synchrotron source and diamond anvil cell (DAC). At ambient temperature, an isostructural phase transition from a tetragonal (T) phase (I4/mmm) to a collapsed tetragonal (CT) phase is observed at 17 GPa. This transition is found to be dependent on ambient pressure unit cell volume and is slightly shifted to higher pressure upon increase in the Cr-doping. Unlike BaFe{sub 2}As{sub 2} which superconduct under high pressure, we have not detected any evidence of pressure induced superconductivity in chromium doped samples in the pressure and temperature range of this study. The measured equation of state parameters are presented for both the tetragonal and collapsed tetragonal phases for x = 0.05, 0.15, 0.40 and 0.61.

Identification of Mn site in Pb(Zr,Ti)O{sub 3} by synchrotron x-ray absorption near-edge structure: Theory and experiment  

SciTech Connect

Synchrotron x-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) experiments are performed on Mn-doped PbZr{sub 1-x}Ti{sub x}O{sub 3} samples (PZT) and compared with first-principles XANES simulations. The features of the measured Mn K-edge XANES are consistent with the first-principles XANES of Mn on the Ti/Zr site and inconsistent with Mn on other sites. The clear agreement between measured and first-principles theoretical XANES spectra reported here is by far the strongest evidence of Mn substituting for Ti/Zr in PZT. This work illustrates that a first-principles supercell framework, which is popularly used to study impurities in crystals, can be used in conjunction with XANES measurement in order to identify an impurity structure with a high degree of confidence. This approach may thus be broadly applicable to study impurities in other crystals.

RESEARCH DESIGN TO EVALUATE Zr-2.5Nb AND Zr-2.5Nb-0.5Cu ALLOYS FOR DELAYED FAILURE HYDROGEN EMBRITTLEMENT. Final Report, October 15, 1962-October 14, 1963  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

In a previous program, the existence of moderate delayed failure of Zr-- 2.5Nb with 500 ppm absorbed hydrogen was established. The present investigation is to determine static fatigue susceptibility of this alloy under various conditions of hydrogen content, heat treatment, and metallurgical condition and includes study of the ternary modification Zr-- 2.5Nb -0.5Cu. Notched and unnotched specimens were evaluated under static loading conditions, primarily at room temperature and with 500 ppm absorbed hydrogen, and the time to failure and fracture characteristics were determined. The metallurgical history which resulted in significant delayed failure susceptibility consisted of water quenching followed by an aging treatment which gave a matrix of entirely transformed beta. If an alphatransformed beta microstructure was produced, static fatigue was markedly attenuated. The results can be accounted for by consideration of whether a crack nucleus cand propagate through the matrix or be stopped by local plastic yielding. The propagation of cracks is therefore determined by matrix strength and ductility, which appear to be strong factors in determining hydrogen embrittlement. (auth)

Irradiation-induced reduction and luminescence properties of Sm{sup 2+} doped in BaBPO{sub 5}  

SciTech Connect

Usually, Sm{sup 2+} ions could be reduced by heating the materials in reducing atmospheres. Exposure to ionizing radiations is also known to cause Sm{sup 3+}{yields}Sm{sup 2+} conversion. In this work, BaBPO{sub 5} doped with the samarium ion was prepared by high temperature solid-state reaction. Sm{sup 2+} ions were obtained by two different reduction methods, i.e., heating in H{sub 2} reduced atmosphere and X-ray irradiation. The measurements of X-ray diffraction (XRD), and scanning electron microscope (SEM) were investigated. It is found that the conversion of Sm{sup 3+}{yields}Sm{sup 2+} is very efficient in BaBPO{sub 5} hosts after X-ray irradiation. Sm{sup 2+} ions under these two reduction methods exhibit different characteristics that were studied by measurements of luminescence and decay. The results showed that the luminescence properties of Sm{sup 2+} ions in BaBPO{sub 5} were highly dependent on the sample preparation conditions. - Graphical abstract: The Sm doped in BaBPO{sub 5} as-prepared in air contains only Sm{sup 3+} ions and shows its fluorescence bands due to the {sup 4}G{sub 5/2} to {sup 6}H{sub 5/2}, {sup 6}H{sub 7/2}, {sup 6}H{sub 9/2}, and {sup 6}H{sub 11/2} transitions (a) under the excitation of 488 nm Ar{sup +}-ion laser. The emission spectra of the samples after X-ray subsequentially irradiations are characteristic of Sm{sup 2+} transitions between the energy levels of 4f{sup 6} electronic configurations (b). It is found that the conversion of Sm{sup 3+}{yields}Sm{sup 2+} is very efficient in BaBPO{sub 5} hosts after X-ray irradiation.

Bose-Einstein condensation of triplons in Ba3Cr2O8  

SciTech Connect

By performing heat capacity, magnetocaloric effect, torque magnetometry and force magnetometry measurements up to 33 T, we have mapped out the T-H phase diagram of the S = 1/2 spin dimer compound Ba{sub 3}Cr{sub 2}O{sub 8}. We found evidence for field-induced magnetic order between H{sub cl} = 12.52(2) T and H{sub c2} = 23.65(5) T, with the maximum transition temperature T{sub c} {approx} 2.7 K at H {approx} 18 T. The lower transition can likely be described by Bose-Einstein condensation of triplons theory, and this is consistent with the absence of any magnetization plateaus in our magnetic torque and force measurements. In contrast, the nature of the upper phase transition appears to be quite different as our measurements suggest that this transition is actually first order.

Monte Carlo Study of the abBA Experiment: Detector Response and Physics Analysis  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The abBA collaboration proposes to conduct a comprehensive program of precise measurements of neutron $\\beta$-decay coefficients $a$ (the correlation between the neutrino momentum and the decay electron momentum), $b$ (the electron energy spectral distortion term), $A$ (the correlation between the neutron spin and the decay electron momentum), and $B$ (the correlation between the neutron spin and the decay neutrino momentum) at a cold neutron beam facility. We have used a GEANT4-based code to simulate the propagation of decay electrons and protons in the electromagnetic spectrometer and study the energy and timing response of a pair of Silicon detectors. We used these results to examine systematic effects and find the uncertainties with which the physics parameters $a$, $b$, $A$, and $B$ can be extracted from an over-determined experimental data set.

Investigation of novel decay B _____ ____(2S)____K at BaBar  

SciTech Connect

We investigate the undocumented B meson decay, B{sup +} {yields} {Psi}(2S){omega}K{sup +}. The data were collected with the BaBar detector at the SLAC PEP-II asymmetric-energy e{sup +}e{sup -} collier operating at the {gamma}(4S) resonance, a center-of-mass energy of 10.58 GeV/c{sup 2}. The {gamma}(4S) resonance primarily decays to pairs of B-mesons. The BaBar collaboration at the PEP-II ring was located at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and was designed to study the collisions of positrons and electrons. The e{sup -}e{sup +} pairs collide at asymmetric energies, resulting in a center of mass which is traveling at relativistic speeds. The resulting time dilation allows the decaying particles to travel large distances through the detector before undergoing their rapid decays, a process that occurs in the in the center of mass frame over extremely small distances. As they travel through silicon vertex trackers, a drift chamber, a Cerenkov radiation detector and finally an electromagnetic calorimeter, we measure the charge, energy, momentum, and particle identification in order to reconstruct the decays that have occurred. While all well understood mesons currently fall into the qq model, the quark model has no a priori exclusion of higher configuration states such as qqqq which has led experimentalists and theorists alike to seek evidence supporting the existence of such states. Currently, there are hundreds of known decay modes of the B mesons cataloged by the Particle Data Group, but collectively they only account for approximately 60% of the B branching fraction and it is possible that many more exist.

3D surface topography study of the biofunctionalized nanocrystalline Ti-6Zr-4Nb/Ca-P  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In this work surface of the sintered Ti-6Zr-4Nb nanocrystalline alloy was electrochemically biofunctionalized. The porous surface was produced by anodic oxidation in 1 M H{sub 3}PO{sub 4} + 2%HF electrolyte at 10 V for 30 min. Next the calcium-phosphate (Ca-P) layer was deposited, onto the formed porous surface, using cathodic potential - 5 V kept for 60 min in 0.042 M Ca(NO{sub 3}){sub 2} + 0.025 M (NH{sub 4}){sub 2}HPO{sub 4} + 0.1 M HCl electrolyte. The deposited Ca-P layer anchored in the pores. The biofunctionalized surface was studied by XRD, SEM and EDS. In vitro tests culture of normal human osteoblast (NHOst) cells showed very good cells proliferation, colonization and multilayering. Using optical profiler, roughness and hybrid 3D surface topography parameters were estimated. Correlation between surface composition, morphology, roughness and biocompatibility results was done. It has been shown by us that surface with appropriate chemical composition and topography, after combined electrochemical anodic and cathodic surface treatment, supports osteoblast adhesion and proliferation. 3D topography measurements using optical profiler play a key role in the biomaterials surface analysis. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Nanocrystalline Ti-6Zr-4Nb/Ca-P material was produced for hard tissue implant applications. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Calcium-phosphate results in surface biofunctionalization. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The biofunctionalized surface shows good in-vitro behavior.

A model is developed which agrees with experimental steady state corrosion rates at 1 atm between 2670 and 3100 K. Under these conditions the corrosion flux is rate limited by the vapor phase transport of Zr(g) away from the solid surface to the bulk gas stream where the partial pressure of Zr(g) is determined by the congruently vaporizing surface composition. Extrapolation of the model to higher pressures indicates that Zr(g) transport should also be rate limiting at higher pressures but the corrosion rate should decrease with increased total pressure due to reduced gaseous diffusion rates. The model predicts that the corrosion rate will increase as the square root of gas velocity for a given temperature and pressure. Calculations demonstrating the effects of gas velocity are in agreement with experimental studies. The addition of hydrocarbons to the hydrogen gas stream is predicted to decrease the corrosion rates significantly.

A thermokinetic model describing the vaporization behavior of U[sub x]Zr[sub 1-x]C[sub 1-y] in hydrogen  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This paper describes the thermodynamics and kinetics of the corrosion of U[sub x]Zr[sub 1-x]C[sub 1-y] in hydrogen gas. It describes how corrosion rates are influenced by variables such as pressure, temperature, and gas flow rate. A model is developed which agrees with experimental steady-state corrosion rates at 1 atm between 2670 and 3100 K. It is shown that under steady-state conditions the corrosion flux is rate limited by the vapor phase transport of Zr(g) away from the solid surface to the bulk gas stream where the partial pressure of Zr(g) is determined by the congruently vaporizing surface composition. Extrapolation of the model to higher pressures indicates that Zr(g) transport should also be rate limiting at higher pressures but the corrosion rate should decrease slightly with increased hydrogen pressure due to reduced gaseous diffusion rates. The model predicts that the corrosion rate will increase as the square root of gas velocity for a given temperature and pressure. Calculations demonstrating the effects of gas velocity are in agreement with experimental studies.

Preparation and Characterization of Au-ZrO2-SiO2 Nanocomposite Spheres and Their Application in Enrichment and Detection of Organophosphorus Agents  

SciTech Connect

Au-ZrO{sub 2}-SiO{sub 2} nanocomposite spheres were synthesized and used as selective sorbents for the solid-phase extraction (SPE) of orananophosphorous agents. A non-enzymatic electrochemical sensor based on an Au-ZrO{sub 2}-SiO{sub 2} modified electrode was developed for selective detection of orananophosphorous pesticides (OPs). The Au-ZrO{sub 2}-SiO{sub 2} nanocomposite spheres were synthesized by hydrolysis and condensation of zirconia n-butoxide (TBOZ) on the surface of SiO{sub 2} spheres and then introduction of gold nanoparticles on the surface. Transmission electron microscope and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy were performed to characterize the formation of the nanocomposite sphere. Fast extraction of OP was achieved by Au-ZrO{sub 2}-SiO{sub 2} modified electrode within 5 min via the specific affinity between zirconia and phosphoric group. The assay yields a broad concentration range of paraoxon-ethyl from 1.0 to 500 ng/mL{sup -1} with a detection limit 0.5 ng/mL{sup -1}. This selective and sensitive method holds great promise for the enrichment and detection of OPs.

Ba{sub 5}Ti{sub 12}Sb{sub 19+x}, a polar intermetallic compound with a stuffed gamma-brass structure  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The polar intermetallic compound Ba{sub 5}Ti{sub 12}Sb{sub 19+x} (xbrass type with a primitive cell. A complex three-dimensional framework of Ti atoms, in the form of linked planar Ti{sub 9} clusters, is stuffed within the gamma-brass-type Ba-Sb substructure. Notwithstanding its relationship to the gamma-brass structure, the compound does not appear to conform to the Hume-Rothery electron concentration rules. Band structure calculations on an idealized Ba{sub 5}Ti{sub 12}Sb{sub 19} model suggest that the availability of bonding states above the Fermi level is responsible for the partial occupation, but only to a limited degree, of an additional Sb site within the structure. Magnetic measurements indicated Pauli paramagnetic behaviour. - A gamma-brass substructure built up of Ba-Sb clusters is stuffed with planar Ti{sub 9} clusters.

We studied the effects on structural and magnetic phase transitions and the emergence of superconductivity in transition metal substituted BaFe{sub 2}As{sub 2}. We grew four series of Ba(Fe{sub 1-x}TM{sub x}){sub 2}As{sub 2} (TM=Ru, Mn, Co+Cr and Co+Mn) and characterized them by crystallographic, magnetic and transport measurements. We also subjected Ba(Fe{sub 1-x}Cr{sub x}){sub 2}As{sub 2} and Ba(Fe{sub 1-x}Co{sub x}){sub 2}As{sub 2} to heat treatment to explore what changes might be induced.

Ab initio molecular dynamics simulations of ionsolid interactions in Gd2Zr2O7 and Gd2Ti2O7  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The development of the ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) method has made it a powerful tool in describing ionsolid interactions in materials, with the determination of threshold displacement energies with ab initio accuracy, and prediction of a new mechanism for defect generation and new defective states that are different from classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. In the present work, this method is employed to study the low energy recoil events in Gd2Zr2O7 and Gd2Ti2O7. The weighted average threshold displacement energies in Gd2Zr2O7 are determined to be 38.8 eV for Gd, 41.4 eV for Zr, 18.6 eV for O48f, and 15.6 eV for O8b, which are smaller than the respective values of 41.8, >53.8, 22.6 and 16.2 eV in Gd2Ti2O7. It reveals that all the ions in Gd2Zr2O7 are more easily displaced than those in Gd2Ti2O7, and anion orderdisorder is more likely to be involved in the displacement events than cation disordering. The average charge transfer from the primary knock-on atom to its neighbors is estimated to be [similar]0.15, [similar]0.11 to 0.27 and [similar]0.1 to 0.13 |e| for Gd, Zr (or Ti), and O, respectively. Neglecting the charge transfer in the interatomic potentials may result in the larger threshold displacement energies in classical MD.

Promotional effect of CO2 on desulfation processes for pre-sulfated Pt BaO/Al2O3 lean NOx trap catalysts  

SciTech Connect

A combination of H2 TPRX, TR-XRD and XPS analysis has been used to investigate the effects of CO2 on the desulfation of pre-sulfated Pt BaO/Al2O3 samples. The results demonstrate that the presence of CO2 promotes the removal of sulfur species, especially at temperatures below 500 C, with a corresponding suppression of BaS formation, thus resulting in a lower amount of residual sulfur on the sample after desulfation.

The quest for improved neutron capture cross sections for advanced reactor concepts, transmutation of radioactive wastes as well as for astrophysical scenarios of neutron capture nucleosynthesis has motivated new experimental efforts based on modern techniques. Recent measurements in the keV region have shown that a 4p BaF2 detector represents an accurate and versatile instrument for such studies. The present work deals with the potential of such a 4p BaF2 detector in combination with spallation neutron sources, which offer large neutron fluxes over a wide energy range. Detailed Monte Carlo simulations with the GEANT package have been performed to investigate the critical backgrounds at a spallation facility, to optimize the detector design, and to discuss alternative solutions.

Alkaline earth lead and tin compounds Ae2Pb, Ae2Sn, Ae=Ca,Sr,Ba, as thermoelectric materials  

SciTech Connect

We present a detailed theoretical study of three alkaline earth compounds Ca2Pb, Sr2Pb and Ba2Pb, which have undergone little previous study, calculating electronic band structures and Boltzmann transport and bulk moduli using density functional theory. We also study the corresponding tin compounds Ca2 Sn, Sr2 Sn and Ba2 Sn. We find that these are all narrow band gap semiconductors with an electronic structure favorable for thermoelectric performance, with substantial thermopowers for the lead compounds at temperature ranges from 300 to 800 K. For the lead compounds, we further find very low calculated bulk moduli - roughly half of the values for the lead chalcogenides, suggestive of soft phonons and hence low lattice thermal conductivity. All these facts indicate that these materials merit experimental investigation as potential high performance thermoelectrics. We find good potential for thermoelectric performance in the environmentally friendly stannide materials, particularly at high temperature.

Effect of low-dose, low-LET γ-radiation and BaP injection on pulmonary  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

low-dose, low-LET γ-radiation and BaP injection on pulmonary low-dose, low-LET γ-radiation and BaP injection on pulmonary immunity in A/J mice K. Gott Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute Abstract Introduction: Low-dose, low-linear-energy-transfer (LET) radiation (LDR; < 100 mGy) activates the immune response (Nowosielska et al., 2006), presumably via epigenetic pathways (Scott et al., 2009) and has been implicated as suppressing both alpha-radiation-induced and smoking-related lung cancer (Scott et al. 2009). One of the hypothesized adaptive-response mechanisms by which LDR does so is by activating immune cell function in the lung, which would then increase their anti-cancer surveillance function (Liu, 2007; Bogdandi et al., 2010). One measure of activated immune cell function is their expression of markers on their cell surface that are

Fundamental Studies of Tl-Ba-Ca-Cu-O Single Crystals and New High-Temperature Superconducting Compounds  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Experimental studies in creating new compounds may lead to a better understanding of high-temperature superconductors. Flux creep activation energies (minimum energies that cause magnetic flux motion) were designed in one new compound, single crystals of laboratory-grown Tl2Ba2CaCu2Ox, using an ac-susceptibility technique. Investigations also measured crystal resistivity and used a new processing technique to form high-quality Tl-based thin films.

A high temperature neutron diffraction study of the double perovskite Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6}  

SciTech Connect

Ba{sub 2}LnMoO{sub 6} double perovskites have been recently shown to display a wide range of interesting magnetic and structural properties; Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6} exhibits simultaneous antiferromagnetic order and a Jahn-Teller distortion. Here we report a high temperature neutron diffraction study of Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6} from 353 to 877 K. The results evidence a tetragonal to cubic phase transition at 423 K. Above this temperature the thermal displacement parameters of the oxygen atoms are modelled anisotropically as a result of a transverse vibration of the bridging oxygen. A smooth increase in the cell parameter a is observed with temperature for Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6}. - Graphical abstract: The high temperature crystal structure of Ba{sub 2}{sup 154}SmMoO{sub 6} evidencing a transverse oxygen vibration.

Transfer strengths to the 0{sup +} states excited by (p,t) reactions in {sup 130,132,134}Ba  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The aim of this work is to calculate the transfer strengths to the excited 0{sup +} states in {sup 130,132,134}Ba which have been identified in (p,t) reactions and to investigate their related properties. For this purpose, we have used a model Hamiltonian which includes monopole pairing, quadrupole-quadrupole, and spin-quadrupole interactions. The model Hamiltonian has been diagonalized with the random phase approximation (RPA). To investigate the general trend of the transfer strengths to the excited 0{sup +} states, two-nucleon transition intensities relative to the transition to the ground state and their cumulative values have been calculated versus energy and compared with the data. The comparisons revealed that fairly good results for the distribution of the energies and the transfer strengths have been obtained. For almost all nuclei, the cumulative values of the transfer strengths were nicely predicted. Moreover, qualitatively, a parallel result that agrees with the data and the prediction of the O(6) limit of the IBM model which is a weak excitation for the first 0{sup +} state and a strong one for the second 0{sup +} state has been obtained for {sup 130}Ba and {sup 132}Ba.

Wetting at the BaTiO{sub 3}/Pt interface  

SciTech Connect

Using density functional theory, we analyze the wetting conditions for Pt on the (001) surface of ferroelectric BaTiO{sub 3} (BTO). We estimate the surface energy of (100), (110), and (111) Pt to be 2.42, 2.49, and 2.00 J/m{sup 2}, respectively. We find the BTO surface energy to vary between 0.26 and 2.28 J/m{sup 2} depending on termination, polarization, and chemical environment. The interface energy between TiO{sub 2}-terminated out-of-plane polarized BTO and (100) Pt is found to be between 1.64 and 2.62 J/m{sup 2}, indicating that (100) Pt cannot wet BTO for this interface. A similar result is found for an interface with (110) Pt. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy of Pt films grown on BTO by molecular beam epitaxy with a low flux at high deposition temperature shows Volmer-Weber islands, consistent with first principles calculations.

Observation of the bottomonium ground state, eta_b, at BaBar

A peak at E_gamma = 921.2 {+2.1}{-2.8}(stat) +/- 2.4(syst) MeV observed with a significance of 10 standard deviations in the photon energy spectrum is interpretated as being due to the radiative transition Upsilon(3S) -> gamma eta_b(1S). This photon energy corresponds to an eta_b(1S) mass of 9388.9 {+3.1}{-2.3}(stat) +/- 2.7(syst) MeV/c2. The hyperfine Upsilon(1S)-eta_b(1S) mass splitting is 71.4 {+2.3}{-3.1}(stat) +/- 2.7(syst) MeV/c2. The branching fraction for this radiative \\Upsilon(3S) decay is obtained as (4.8 +/- 0.5(stat) +/- 1.2 (syst)) x 10^(-4).

Neutron response of the LAMBDA spectrometer and neutron interaction length in BaF2  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report on the neutron response of the LAMBDA spectrometer developed earlier for high-energy gamma-ray measurement. The energy dependent neutron detection efficiency of the spectrometer has been measured using the time-of-flight (TOF) technique and compared with that of an organic liquid scintillator based neutron detector (BC501A). The extracted efficiencies have also been compared with those obtained from Monte Carlo GEANT4 simulation. We have also measured the average interaction length of neutrons in the BaF2 crystal in a separate experiment, in order to determine the TOF energy resolution. Finally, the LAMBDA spectrometer has been tested in an in-beam-experiment by measuring neutron energy spectra in the 4He + 93Nb reaction to extract nuclear level density parameters. Nuclear level density parameters obtained by the LAMBDA spectrometer were found to be consistent with those obtained by the BC501A neutron detector, indicating that the spectrometer can be efficiently used as a neutron detector to measure the nuclear level density parameter.

High temperature superconductor step-edge Josephson junctions using Ti-Ca-Ba-Cu-O  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A process is disclosed for formulating non-hysteretic and hysteretic Josephson junctions using HTS materials which results in junctions having the ability to operate at high temperatures while maintaining high uniformity and quality. The non-hysteretic Josephson junction is formed by step-etching a LaAlO[sub 3] crystal substrate and then depositing a thin film of TlCaBaCuO on the substrate, covering the step, and forming a grain boundary at the step and a subsequent Josephson junction. Once the non-hysteretic junction is formed the next step to form the hysteretic Josephson junction is to add capacitance to the system. In the current embodiment, this is accomplished by adding a thin dielectric layer, LaA1O[sub 3], followed by a cap layer of a normal metal where the cap layer is formed by first depositing a thin layer of titanium (Ti) followed by a layer of gold (Au). The dielectric layer and the normal metal cap are patterned to the desired geometry. 8 figs.

Multiphonon states in {sub 56}{sup 136}Ba{sub 80}  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Low-lying multiphonon states in {sup 136}Ba have been populated with the inelastic neutron scattering reaction. Excitation functions were performed at neutron energies from 2.2 to 3.9 MeV, and {gamma}-ray angular distributions were measured at 2.5, 3.0, and 3.5 MeV. Lifetimes have been determined using the Doppler-shift attenuation method, and electromagnetic transition rates have been deduced. The previously assigned 2{sub 1,ms}{sup +} mixed-symmetry state at 2128.9 keV has been confirmed and is not greatly fragmented. For the first time in the N=80 isotones, a 3{sub 2,ms}{sup +} two-phonon mixed-symmetry state is proposed. In addition, the 2{sub 5}{sup +} and the 4{sub 3}{sup +} levels at 2222.7 and 2356.4 keV, respectively, decay with large B(M1) values to the two-phonon 2{sub 2}{sup +} and 4{sub 1}{sup +} states, respectively, which suggests two-phonon mixed-symmetric character. Their excitation energies, however, are not consistent with this interpretation.

A first-principles density functional theory study of the electronic structural and thermodynamic properties of M2ZrO3 and M2CO3 (M=Na, K) and their capabilities for CO2 capture  

SciTech Connect

Alkali metal zirconates could be used as solid sorbents for CO{sub 2} capture. The structural, electronic, and phonon properties of Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, K{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, Na{sub 2}CO{sub 3}, and K{sub 2}CO{sub 3} are investigated by combining the density functional theory with lattice phonon dynamics. The thermodynamics of CO{sub 2} absorption/desorption reactions of these two zirconates are analyzed. The calculated results show that their optimized structures are in a good agreement with experimental measurements. The calculated band gaps are 4.339 eV (indirect), 3.641 eV (direct), 3.935 eV (indirect), and 3.697 eV (direct) for Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, K{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}, Na{sub 2}CO{sub 3}, and K{sub 2}CO{sub 3}, respectively.The calculated phonon dispersions and phonon density of states for M{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} and M{sub 2}CO{sub 3} (M = K, Na, Li) revealed that from K to Na to Li, their frequency peaks are shifted to high frequencies due to the molecular weight decreased from K to Li. From the calculated reaction heats and relationships of free energy change versus temperatures and CO{sub 2} pressures of the M{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} (M = K, Na, Li) reacting with CO{sub 2}, we found that the performance of Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} capturing CO{sub 2} is similar to that of Li{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} and is better than that of K{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3}. Therefore, Na{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} and Li{sub 2}ZrO{sub 3} are good candidates of high temperature CO{sub 2} sorbents and could be used for post combustion CO{sub 2} capture technologies.

Low temperature rf sputtering deposition of (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} thin film with crystallization enhancement by rf power supplied to the substrate  

SciTech Connect

The (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} thin film deposited by radio frequency (rf) sputtering requires a high deposition temperature near 500 deg. C to realize a high relative dielectric constant over of 300. For example, the film deposited at 330 deg. C contains an amorphous phase and shows a low relative dielectric constant of less than 100. We found that rf power supplied not only to the (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} sputtering target, but also to the substrate during the initial step of film deposition, enhanced the crystallization of the (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} film drastically and realized a high dielectric constant of the film even at low deposition temperatures near 300 deg. C. The 50-nm-thick film with only a 10 nm initial layer deposited with the substrate rf biasing is crystallized completely and shows a high relative dielectric constant of 380 at the deposition temperature of 330 deg. C. The (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} film deposited at higher temperatures (upwards of 400 deg. C) shows <110> preferred orientation, while the film deposited at 330 deg. C with the 10 nm initial layer shows a <111> preferred orientation on a <001>-oriented ruthenium electrode. The unit cell of (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} (111) plane is similar to that of ruthenium (001) plane. We conclude that the rf power supplied to the substrate causes ion bombardments on the (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} film surface, which assists the quasiepitaxial growth of (Ba, Sr) TiO{sub 3} film on the ruthenium electrode at low temperatures of less than 400 deg. C.

Specification of CuCrZr Alloy Properties after Various Thermo-Mechanical Treatments and Design Allowables including Neutron Irradiation Effects  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Precipitation hardened CuCrZr alloy is a promising heat sink and functional material for various applica- tions in ITER, for example the first wall, blanket electrical attachment, divertor, and heating systems. Three types of thermo-mechanical treatment were identified as most promising for the various applica- tions in ITER: solution annealing, cold working and ageing; solution annealing and ageing; solution annealing and ageing at non-optimal condition due to specific manufacturing processes for engineer- ing-scale components. The available data for these three types of treatments were assessed and mini- mum tensile properties were determined based on recommendation of Structural Design Criteria for the ITER In-vessel Components. The available data for these heat treatments were analyzed for assess- ment of neutron irradiation effect. Using the definitions of the ITER Structural Design Criteria the design allowable stress intensity values are proposed for CuCrZr alloy after various heat treatments.

Selective Production of H2 from Ethanol at Low Temperatures over Rh/ZrO2-CeO2 Catalysts  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A series of Rh catalysts on various supports have been applied to H2 production from the bio-ethanol steam reforming reaction. Support plays a very important role on product selectivity at low temperatures (below 450C). Acidic or basic supports favor ethanol dehydration, while ethanol dehydrogenation is favored over neutral supports at low temperatures. Among the catalysts evaluated in this study, the Rh/Ce-ZrO2 catalyst exhibited the highest H2 yield at 450 C, which is possibly due to the high oxygen storage capacity of Ce-ZrO2 resulting in efficient transfer of mobile oxygen species from the H2O molecule to the reaction intermediate.

Controllable synthesis of Ce{sub 1-x}Zr{sub x}O{sub 2} hollow nanospheres via supercritical anti-solvent precipitation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Nanocrystalline Ce{sub 1-x}Zr{sub x}O{sub 2} hollow nanospheres were successfully synthesized via supercritical anti-solvent precipitation using supercritical CO{sub 2} as the anti-solvent. It was found that the as-produced samples exhibited hollow spherical structures with uniform diameters ranging from 30 to 50 nm and the sphere walls were composed of various oriented nanocrystallites, with sizes of 3-7 nm. The results of high-resolution transmission electron microscopy showed that the formation of the hollow structures could be controlled by adjusting the solution concentration. The results of temperature-programmed reduction and oxygen storage capacity measurements showed that the hollow nanospheres had enhanced redox properties. A possible mechanism for the formation of Ce{sub 1-x}Zr{sub x}O{sub 2} hollow nanospheres has also been proposed and experimental investigated.

Cluster Chemistry in Electron-Poor Ae-Pt-Cd Systems (Ae=Ca, Sr, Ba): (Sr,Ba)Pt2Cd4, Ca6Pt8Cd16, and Its Known Antitype Er6Pd16Sb8  

SciTech Connect

Three new ternary polar intermetallic compounds, cubic Ca6Pt8Cd16, and tetragonal (Sr, Ba)Pt2Cd4 have been discovered during explorations of the AePtCd systems. Cubic Ca6Pt8Cd16 (Fm-3m, Z = 4, a = 13.513(1) ) contains a 3D array of separate Cd8 tetrahedral stars (TS) that are both face capped along the axes and diagonally bridged by Pt atoms to generate the 3D anionic network Cd8[Pt(1)]6/2[Pt(2)]4/8. The complementary cationic surface of the cell consists of a face-centered cube of Pt(3)@Ca6 octahedra. This structure is an ordered ternary variant of Sc11Ir4 (Sc6Ir8Sc16), a stuffed version of the close relative Na6Au7Cd16, and a network inverse of the recent Er6Sb8Pd16 (compare Ca6Pt8Cd16). The three groups of elements each occur in only one structural version. The new AePt2Cd4, Ae = Sr, Ba, are tetragonal (P42/mnm,Z = 2, a ? 8.30 , c ? 4.47 ) and contain chains of edge-sharing Cd4 tetrahedra along c that are bridged by four-bonded Ba/Sr. LMTO-ASA and ICOHP calculation results and comparisons show that the major bonding (Hamilton) populations in Ca6Pt8Cd16 and Er6Sb8Pd16 come from polar PtCd and PdSb interactions, that Pt exhibits larger relativistic contributions than Pd, that characteristic size and orbital differences are most evident for Sb 5s, Pt8, and Pd16, and that some terms remain incomparable, CaCd versus ErPd.
