Effects of microstructural control on the failure kinetics and the reliability improvement of Al and Al-alloy interconnects  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The reliability of microelectronic systems is often limited by electromigration failure in Al-based thin-film conducting lines which interconnect devices to form an integrated circuit. Under an applied electric field Al atoms migrate with the electron flow, causing a counterflow of vacancies that accumulate into voids, eventually leading to an open circuit failure. The work reported here is concerned with clarifying the microstructural mechanism of electromigration failure, and with developing a metallurgical method to improve the electromigration resistance of Al-based interconnects. Pure Al, Al-2Cu, and Al-2Cu-1Si lines with quasi-bamboo microstructures are explored as a function of heat treatment conditions and current density. The {open_quotes}weakest{close_quotes} microstructural unit that causes failure is identified by electron microscopy; with rare exceptions, failure occurs at the upstream end of the longest polygranular segment in a given line. This microstructural characteristic of electromigration failure is even observed in lines whose maximum segment lengths are less than a few microns. The time to failure appears to increase exponentially with decreasing longest polygranular segment length. A simple constitutive equation is reported to describe the failure kinetics as a function of the polygranular segment length that leads to failure. Given correct values of the kinetic constants included in the equation, this microstructure-based constitutive relation will provide a way to assess interconnect reliability. An effective metallurgical method that can eliminate relatively long polygranular segments is post-pattern annealing. This heat treatment particularly narrows the distribution of the longest polygranular segment lengths over a large set of lines. As a consequence, the time-to-failure distribution narrows as well, so that the time to first failure increases more substantially than the median time to failure.

Surface Engineering to Improve the Durability and Lubricity of Ti-6Al-4V Alloy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Titanium alloys offer high strength, high corrosion resistance, and the opportunity to reduce the weight of heavy vehicle engine components, but they do not perform well as bearing surfaces without further treatments or coatings. This paper explores a series of surface engineering treatments to improve the friction and wear behavior of Ti-6Al-4V alloy under diesel engine oil-lubricated conditions.

Microstructure control of Al-Cu films for improved electromigration resistance  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A process for the forming of Al-Cu conductive thin films with reduced electromigration failures is useful, for example, in the metallization of integrated circuits. An improved formation process includes the heat treatment or annealing of the thin film conductor at a temperature within the range of from 200.degree. C. to 300.degree. C. for a time period between 10 minutes and 24 hours under a reducing atmosphere such as 15% H.sub.2 in N.sub.2 by volume. Al-Cu thin films annealed in the single phase region of a phase diagram, to temperatures between 200.degree. C. and 300.degree. C. have .theta.-phase Al.sub.2 Cu precipitates at the grain boundaries continuously become enriched in copper, due, it is theorized, to the formation of a thin coating of .theta.-phase precipitate at the grain boundary. Electromigration behavior of the aluminum is, thus, improved because the .theta.-phase precipitates with copper hinder aluminum diffusion along the grain boundaries. Electromigration, then, occurs mainly within the aluminum grains, a much slower process.

Improving the phase stability and oxidation resistance of B-NiAl  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

High temperature alloys are essential to many industries that require a stable material to perform in harsh oxidative environments. Many of these alloys are suited for specific applications such as jet engine turbine blades where most other materials would either melt or oxidize and crumble (1). These alloys must have a high melting temperature, excellent oxidation resistance, good creep resistance, and decent fracture toughness to be successfully used in such environments. The discovery of Ni based superalloys in the 1940s revolutionized the high temperature alloy industry and there has been continued development of these alloys since their advent (2). These materials are capable of operating in oxidative environments in the presence of combustion gases, water vapor and at temperatures around 1050 C. Demands for increased f uel efficiency, however, has highlighted the need for materials that can be used under similar atmospheres and at temperatures in excess of 1200 C. The current Ni based superalloys are restricted to lower temperatures due to the presence of a number of low melting phases that result in softening of the alloys above 1000 C. Therefore, recent research has been aimed at exploring and developing newer alloy systems that can meet the escalating requirements. This thesis comprises a part of such an effort. The motivation of this work is to develop a novel high temperature alloy system that shows improved performance at higher temperatures than the currently employed alloys. The desired alloy should be in accordance with the requirements established in the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) FutureGen program having an operating temperature around 1300 C. Alloys based on NiAl offer significant potential payoffs as structural materials in gas turbine applications due to a unique range of physical and mechanical properties. Alloying additions to NiAl could be used to further improve the pertinent properties that currently limit this system from replacing Ni based superalloys. Modifications to NiAl were explored to increase the phase stability and oxidation resistance which would allow these alloys to be used at even higher temperatures yielding greater efficiencies. The extended Miedema model was an effective tool that screened all of the potential phase space for ternary substitutions to NiAl and found the few potential systems worth further investigation. After production of the alloys it was determined that Ir, Rh, and Pd were the top candidates for substitution on Ni site up to 12 at%. The melting temperature of NiAl could be increased as much as 150 C with 12 at% Ir and 130 C with 12 at% Rh substitution. Pall adium on the other hand decreased the melting temperature by 50 C at the 12 at% substitution level. The grain size was found to have a profound influence on the oxidation resistance. Both Ir and Rh substitutions resulted in finer grain sizes compared to Pd substitutions or base NiAl. The grain size increased drastically during high temperature annealing with the PGM substitutions hindering grain growth only slightly. However, the addition of 0.05 at% Hf limited the grain growth dramatically during high temperature annealing. NiAl inherently has respectable oxidation resistance up to 1100 C. It was found through experimental testing that both Ir and Rh substitutions improve the oxidation resistance of NiAl at ultra-high temperatures with Ir performing the best. Both PGM substitutions decreased the growth rate as well as forming a more adherent oxide scale. Pd substitutions appeared to have a negligible effect to the oxidation resistance of NiAl. Hafnium addition of 0.05 at% was found to decrease the oxidation rate as well as increase the scale adherence. The combination of both Ir substitution (6-9 at%) and Hf addition (0.05 at%) produced the alloy with the best oxidation resistance. Although improvements in phase stability and oxidation resistance have been made to the NiAl system, more development and testing are still needed. Two major issues yet to be resolved are the low fracture toughn

Characterization of interface states in Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN/GaN structures for improved performance of high-electron-mobility transistors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We have investigated the relationship between improved electrical properties of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN/GaN metal-oxide-semiconductor high-electron-mobility transistors (MOS-HEMTs) and electronic state densities at the Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN interface evaluated from the same structures as the MOS-HEMTs. To evaluate Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN interface state densities of the MOS-HEMTs, two types of capacitance-voltage (C-V) measurement techniques were employed: the photo-assisted C-V measurement for the near-midgap states and the frequency dependent C-V characteristics for the states near the conduction-band edge. To reduce the interface states, an N{sub 2}O-radical treatment was applied to the AlGaN surface just prior to the deposition of the Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} insulator. As compared to the sample without the treatment, the N{sub 2}O-radical treated Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN/GaN structure showed smaller frequency dispersion of the C-V curves in the positive gate bias range. The state densities at the Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN interface were estimated to be 1??10{sup 12}?cm{sup ?2}?eV{sup ?1} or less around the midgap and 8??10{sup 12}?cm{sup ?2}?eV{sup ?1} near the conduction-band edge. In addition, we observed higher maximum drain current at the positive gate bias and suppressed threshold voltage instability under the negative gate bias stress even at 150?C. Results presented in this paper indicated that the N{sub 2}O-radical treatment is effective both in reducing the interface states and improving the electrical properties of the Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}/AlGaN/GaN MOS-HEMTs.

Origin of improved scintillation efficiency in (Lu,Gd){sub 3}(Ga,Al){sub 5}O{sub 12}:Ce multicomponent garnets: An X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy study  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the recent successful improvement of scintillation efficiency in Lu{sub 3}Al{sub 5}O{sub 12}:Ce driven by Ga{sup 3+} and Gd{sup 3+} admixture, the band-gap engineering and energy level positioning have been considered the valid strategies so far. This study revealed that this improvement was also associated with the cerium valence instability along with the changes of chemical composition. By utilizing X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy technique, tuning the Ce{sup 3+}/Ce{sup 4+} ratio by Ga{sup 3+} admixture was evidenced, while it was kept nearly stable with the Gd{sup 3+} admixture. Ce valence instability and Ce{sup 3+}/Ce{sup 4+} ratio in multicomponent garnets can be driven by the energy separation between 4f ground state of Ce{sup 3+} and Fermi level.

Refractory Improvement  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Refractory Improvement Refractory Improvement NETL Office of Research and Development Project Number: FWP-2012.03.03 Task 2 Project Description Industry would like gasifier on-line availability of 85-95% for utility applications and 95% for applications such as chemical production. Gasification facilities' are currently unable to meet these requirements, which have created a potential roadblock to widespread acceptance and commercialization of gasification technologies. Refractory liners and syngas coolers are among key components of the gasification process previously identified as negatively impacting gasifier availability. Ash originating from impurities in the gasifier's carbon feedstock is the root cause of many problems impacting gasifier RAM (Reliability Availability Maintainability). At the high temperatures of gasification, ash changes to liquid, gas, and solid phases which wear down refractory materials and can cause fouling, either of which can lead to unplanned shutdowns for system repair, replacement, or cleaning.

Reaction characteristics of Al/Fe2O3 nanocomposites  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Al/Fe2O3 nonacomposites have explosive and high exothermic properties by thermite reaction. In this study, Al/Fe2O3 xerogel nanocomposites were prepared by solgel method and thermite reaction performance was compared with those prepared by physical mixing with sonication. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images of Al/Fe2O3 xerogel nanocomposites show that network structure of Fe2O3 gel covers Al nanoparticles efficiently and this indicates that improvement of thermite reaction performance due to close contact between a fuel and an oxidizer. Optimum mole ratio of Al/Fe was determined to be 2 by thermite reaction performance by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis. At Al/Fe ratio of 2, thermite reaction enthalpy of the Al/Fe2O3 xerogel nancomposite was 991.4J/g, which was higher by a factor of four than that of the nanocomposite prepared by physical mixing.

An improved aethalometer having a single light source and a single light detector and two light paths from the light source to the light detector. A quartz fiber filter is inserted in the device, the filter having a collection area in one light path and a reference area in the other light path. A gas flow path through the aethalometer housing allows ambient air to flow through the collection area of the filter so that aerosol particles can be collected on the filter. A rotating disk with an opening therethrough allows light for the light source to pass alternately through the two light paths. The voltage output of the detector is applied to a VCO and the VCO pulses for light transmission separately through the two light paths, are counted and compared to determine the absorption coefficient of the collected aerosol particles. 5 figs.

Thermal behavior of Al/MoO3 xerogel nanocomposites  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Solgel process using molybdenum alkoxides was employed to prepare Al/MoO3 xerogel nanocomposites as a thermite with better performance by improvement of interfacial contact area between the oxidizer and fuel. Micromorphology and thermite reaction characteristics of Al/MoO3 xerogel nanocomposites were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermogravimetry/differential scanning calorimetry (TG/DSC), respectively. In the present Al/MoO3 xerogel system, it was found that exothermic enthalpy increases as the Al/Mo mole ratio increases and then decreases when Al/Mo mole ratio is larger than 6 indicating that optimum mole ratio of Al/Mo is 6 with reaction enthalpy of 420.58J/g.

Dynamic recrystallization and superplasticity in TiAl  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The effect of structural factors (grain size, grain boundary structure and fraction of the second phase) on dynamic recrystallization and superplasticity in the TiAl intermetallic alloy was studied. The possibilities of the formation of submicrocrystalline structure and the abrupt decrease of the superplastic temperature were shown. It was established that the occurrence of dynamic recrystallization and superplastic flow led to the formation of homogeneous microstructure and the improvement of low-temperature ductility in TiAl.

Grain boundary compositon in NiAl  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The high temperature strength and oxidation resistance of many transition metal aluminides makes these intermetallic materials attractive for high temperature applications. However, these aluminides are generally brittle at low temperatures and this restricts their technological applications. However, these aluminides are generally brittle at low temperatures and this restricts their technological applications. It has been demonstrated that the addition of more than 200 ppm of boron to the L1{sub 2}-ordered Ni{sub 3}Al changes the fracture behavior from intergranular to transgranular and increases the ductility. The B2-ordered NiAl nickel aluminide is particularly attractive because of its low density and high melting temperature. This aluminide also fractures intergranularly at room temperature. However, no improvement in ductility is observed with similar boron additions even though the intergranular fracture is suppressed and there is a significant increase in the yield strength. In this paper, the results of an atom probe field ion microscopy investigation of the compositions of the grain boundaries in undoped and boron-doped NiAl are presented. The suitability of the atom probe field ion microscopy technique for the characterization of boundaries has clearly been demonstrated in many previous investigations including the characterization of boron segregation to grain boundaries and other planar features in Ni{sub 3}Al.

Refines Efficiency Improvement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Refinery processes that convert heavy oils to lighter distillate fuels require heating for distillation, hydrogen addition or carbon rejection (coking). Efficiency is limited by the formation of insoluble carbon-rich coke deposits. Heat exchangers and other refinery units must be shut down for mechanical coke removal, resulting in a significant loss of output and revenue. When a residuum is heated above the temperature at which pyrolysis occurs (340 C, 650 F), there is typically an induction period before coke formation begins (Magaril and Aksenova 1968, Wiehe 1993). To avoid fouling, refiners often stop heating a residuum before coke formation begins, using arbitrary criteria. In many cases, this heating is stopped sooner than need be, resulting in less than maximum product yield. Western Research Institute (WRI) has developed innovative Coking Index concepts (patent pending) which can be used for process control by refiners to heat residua to the threshold, but not beyond the point at which coke formation begins when petroleum residua materials are heated at pyrolysis temperatures (Schabron et al. 2001). The development of this universal predictor solves a long standing problem in petroleum refining. These Coking Indexes have great potential value in improving the efficiency of distillation processes. The Coking Indexes were found to apply to residua in a universal manner, and the theoretical basis for the indexes has been established (Schabron et al. 2001a, 2001b, 2001c). For the first time, a few simple measurements indicates how close undesired coke formation is on the coke formation induction time line. The Coking Indexes can lead to new process controls that can improve refinery distillation efficiency by several percentage points. Petroleum residua consist of an ordered continuum of solvated polar materials usually referred to as asphaltenes dispersed in a lower polarity solvent phase held together by intermediate polarity materials usually referred to as resins. The Coking Indexes focus on the amount of these intermediate polarity species since coke formation begins when these are depleted. Currently the Coking Indexes are determined by either titration or solubility measurements which must be performed in a laboratory. In the current work, various spectral, microscopic, and thermal techniques possibly leading to on-line analysis were explored for measuring the Coking Indexes.

Laser Cladding of TiAl Intermetallic Alloy on Ti6Al4V -Process Optimization and Properties  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In order to improve Ti6Al4V high-temperature resistance and its tribological properties, the deposition of TiAl intermetallic (Ti-48Al-2Cr-2Nb) coating on a Ti6Al4V substrate by coaxial laser cladding has been investigated. Laser cladding by powder injection is an emerging laser material processing technique that allows the deposition of thick protective coatings on substrates,using a high power laser beam as heat source. Laser cladding is a multiple-parameter-dependent process. The main process parameters involved (laser power, powder feeding rate, scanning speed and preheating temperature) has been optimized. The microstructure and geometrical quantities (clad area and dilution) of the coating was characterized by optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). In addition the cooling rate of the clad during the process was measured by a dual-color pyrometer. This result has been related to defectology and mechanical coating properties.

In Memory of Al Cameron  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Al Cameron, who died recently (October 3, 2005) at 80, was one of the giants in astrophysics. His insights were profound and his interests were wide-ranging. Originally trained as a nuclear physicist, he made major contributions in a number of fields, including nuclear reactions in stars, nucleosynthesis, the abundances of the elements in the Solar System, and the origin of the Solar System and the Moon. In 1957, Cameron and, independently, Burbidge, Burbidge, Fowler and Hoyle, wrote seminal papers on nuclear astrophysics. Most of our current ideas concerning element formation in stars have followed from those two pioneering and historical works. Al also made many contributions in the field of Solar System physics. Particularly noteworthy in this regard was Cameron's work on the formation of the Moon. Al was also a good friend and mentor of young people. Al Cameron will be missed by many in the community both for his scientific contributions and for his friendship.

In high magnetic fields, the critical current density is strongly dependent on the upper critical field, which is determined primarily by the stoichiometry of the Nb/sub 3/Al. The critical temperature (T/sub c/), like the upper critical field, is considered to be a measure of the ''intrinsic'' quality of the superconductor, indicating the stoichiometry, order, and strain. If the A15 phase is stoichiometric and well ordered, a high T/sub c/ (and high H/sub C/sub 2//) is expected, regardless of the volume fraction of superconductor. On the other hand, if sigma phase is present with the A15, the resultant composition gradient across the sigma-A15 interface(s) requires that some of the A15 be off-stoichiometric, and therefore that the T/sub c/ (and H/sub C/sub 2//) be low. Thus the extent of the A15 (Nb/sub 3/Al) reaction and the quality of the A15 formed are interdependent. This work focuses on the factors that control the extent of Nb/sub 3/Al formation in Nb/Al powder wires. The morphology and content of the reacted and unreacted wires are studied in optical, SEM, and TEM micrographs. Critical current density data and its dependence on processing are explained in terms of the unreacted microstructure and its effect on the extent of Nb/sub 3/Al formation. As a method of improving the critical current density, a new variation of the conventional powder process for wire manufacturing is developed and tested.

Modeling of the ALS linac  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The ALS injector linac is used for the Beam Test Facility (BTF) and the Damping Experiments when it is available in between the ALS filings. These experiments usually require higher quality beams and a better characterization than is normally required for ALS operations. This paper focuses on the beam emittance, energy tilt, and especially the longitudinal variation of the beam parameters. For instance, the authors want to avoid longitudinal variations at the low beta section of the BTF. On the other hand, a large energy tilt is required for post-acceleration compression of the bunch using an alpha magnet. The PARMELA code was modified to calculate and display longitudinal variations of the emittance ellipse. Using the Microsoft Development Studio under Windows NT environment the code can handle a much larger number of particles than was previously possible.

AlN/Fe/AlN nanostructures for magnetooptic magnetometry  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

AlN/Fe/AlN/Cu nanostructures with ultrathin Fe grown by sputtering on Si substrates are evaluated as probes for magnetooptical (MO) mapping of weak currents. They are considered for a laser wavelength of ??=?410?nm (3.02?eV) and operate at oblique light incidence angles, ?{sup (0)}, to enable detection of both in-plane and out-of-plane magnetization. Their performance is evaluated in terms of MO reflected wave electric field amplitudes. The maximal MO amplitudes in AlN/Fe/AlN/Cu are achieved by a proper choice of layer thicknesses. The nanostructures were characterized by MO polar Kerr effect at ?{sup (0)}???5 and longitudinal Kerr effect spectra (?{sup (0)}?=?45) at photon energies between 1 and 5?eV. The nominal profiles were refined using a model-based analysis of the spectra. Closed form analytical expressions are provided, which are useful in the search for maximal MO amplitudes.

Reaction Mechanisms in the Li3AlH6/LiBH4 and Al/LiBH4 Systems for Reversible Hydrogen Storage. Part 1: H capacity and Role of Al  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Lithium-based complex hydrides, including lithium aluminum hydrides (LiAlH4, Li3AlH6) and lithium borohydride (LiBH4), are some of the most attractive materials for hydrogen storage due to their high hydrogen contents. In the present work, we investigated the hydrogen storage properties of combined systems of Li3AlH6-LiBH4 and Al-LiBH4, both of which exhibit favorable hydrogen storage properties owing to the formation of AlB2 during dehydrogenation. TGA data showed that TiCl3-doped Li3AlH6/2LiBH4 and 0.5Al/LiBH4 release ~ 8.8 and ~ 8.4 wt.% H2, respectively, with ~ 3.8 and ~ 5.8 wt.% release after rehydrogenation of the dehydrogenation product. XRD results identified LiH and AlB2 phases in the dehydrogenated products, which has suggested a mechanism by which Al contributes to the remarkable improvement of the reversible storage properties of LiBH4 in terms of the temperature and pressure for H2 release/uptake.

The Microstructure-Processing-Property Relationships in an Al Matrix Composite System Reinforced by Al-Cu-Fe Alloy Particles  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Metal matrix composites (MMC), especially Al matrix composites, received a lot of attention during many years of research because of their promise for the development of automotive and aerospace materials with improved properties and performance, such as lighter weight and better structural properties, improved thermal conductivity and wear resistance. In order to make the MMC materials more viable in various applications, current research efforts on the MMCs should continue to focus on two important aspects, including improving the properties of MMCs and finding more economical techniques to produce MMCs. Solid state vacuum sintering was studied in tap densified Al powder and in hot quasi-isostatically forged samples composed of commercial inert gas atomized or high purity Al powder, generated by a gas atomization reaction synthesis (GARS) technique. The GARS process results in spherical Al powder with a far thinner surface oxide. The overall results indicated the enhanced ability of GARS-processed Al and Al alloy powders for solid state sintering, which may lead to simplification of current Al powder consolidation processing methods. Elemental Al-based composites reinforced with spherical Al-Cu-Fe alloy powders were produced by quasi-isostatic forging and vacuum hot pressing (VHP) consolidation methods. Microstructures and tensile properties of AYAl-Cu-Fe composites were characterized. It was proved that spherical Al-Cu-Fe alloy powders can serve as an effective reinforcement particulate for elemental Al-based composites, because of their high hardness and a preferred type of matrix/reinforcement interfacial bonding, with reduced strain concentration around the particles. Ultimate tensile strength and yield strength of the composites were increased over the corresponding Al matrix values, far beyond typical observations. This remarkable strengthening was achieved without precipitation hardening and without severe strain hardening during consolidation because of the matrix choice (elemental Al) and the ''low shear'' consolidation methods utilized. This reinforcement effectiveness is further evidenced by elastic modulus measurements of the composites that are very close to the upper bound predictions of the rule of mixtures. The load partitioning measurements by neutron diffraction showed that composite samples made from GARS powders present significantly higher load transfer efficiency than the composites made from commercially atomized powders. Also, the composite samples made from GARS powders show a higher strengthening effect and ductility than the samples made from commercial purity powders. The higher load transfer efficiency and higher strength and ductility may result from an enhanced inter-particle bonding strength, promoted by the ''clean'' interfaces between particles. Further analysis of the load sharing measurements and the calculated values of the mismatch of coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) and the geometrically necessary dislocation (GND) effects suggest that these strengthening mechanisms can be combined to predict accurately the strength of the composites.

Two-dimensional electron gases in strained quantum wells for AlN/GaN/AlN double heterostructure field-effect transistors on AlN  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Double heterostructures of strained GaN quantum wells (QWs) sandwiched between relaxed AlN layers provide a platform to investigate the quantum-confined electronic and optical properties of the wells. The growth of AlN/GaN/AlN heterostructures with varying GaN quantum well thicknesses on AlN by plasma molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) is reported. Photoluminescence spectra provide the optical signature of the thin GaN QWs. Reciprocal space mapping in X-ray diffraction shows that a GaN layer as thick as ?28 nm is compressively strained to the AlN layer underneath. The density of the polarization-induced two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) in the undoped heterostructures increases with the GaN QW thickness, reaching ?2.5??10{sup 13}/cm{sup 2}. This provides a way to tune the 2DEG channel density without changing the thickness of the top barrier layer. Electron mobilities less than ?400 cm{sup 2}/Vs are observed, leaving ample room for improvement. Nevertheless, owing to the high 2DEG density, strained GaN QW field-effect transistors with MBE regrown ohmic contacts exhibit an on-current density ?1.4?A/mm, a transconductance ?280 mS/mm, and a cut off frequency f{sub T}?104?GHz for a 100-nm-gate-length device. These observations indicate high potential for high-speed radio frequency and high voltage applications that stand to benefit from the extreme-bandgap and high thermal conductivity of AlN.

Toward Improved Fidelity of Thermal Explosion Simulations  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We will present results of an effort to improve the thermal/chemical/mechanical modeling of HMX based explosive like LX04 and LX10 for thermal cook-off. The original HMX model and analysis scheme were developed by Yoh et.al. for use in the ALE3D modeling framework. The current results were built to remedy the deficiencies of that original model. We concentrated our efforts in four areas. The first area was addition of porosity to the chemical material model framework in ALE3D that is used to model the HMX explosive formulation. This is needed to handle the roughly 2% porosity in solid explosives. The second area was the improvement of the HMX reaction network, which included the inclusion of a reactive phase change model base on work by Henson et.al. The third area required adding early decomposition gas species to the CHEETAH material database to develop more accurate equations of state for gaseous intermediates and products. Finally, it was necessary to improve the implicit mechanics module in ALE3D to more naturally handle the long time scales associated with thermal cook-off. The application of the resulting framework to the analysis of the Scaled Thermal Explosion (STEX) experiments will be discussed.

Aluminium distribution in ZSM-5 revisited: The role of Al-Al interactions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We present a theoretical study of the distribution of Al atoms in zeolite ZSM-5 with Si/Al=47, where we focus on the role of Al-Al interactions rather than on the energetics of Al/Si substitutions at individual sites. Using interatomic potential methods, we evaluate the energies of the full set of symmetrically independent configurations of Al siting in a Si{sub 94}Al{sub 2}O{sub 192} cell. The equilibrium Al distribution is determined by the interplay of two factors: the energetics of the Al/Si substitution at an individual site, which tends to populate particular T sites (e.g., the T14 site), and the Al-Al interaction, which at this Si/Al maximises Al-Al distances in general agreement with Dempsey's rule. However, it is found that the interaction energy changes approximately as the inverse of the square of the distance between the two Al atoms, rather than the inverse of the distance expected if this were merely charge repulsion. Moreover, we find that the anisotropic nature of the framework density plays an important role in determining the magnitude of the interactions, which are not simply dependent on Al-Al distances. - Graphical abstract: Role of Al-Al interactions in high silica ZSM-5 is shown to be anisotropic in nature and not dependent solely on Coulombic interactions. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Si-Al distribution in ZSM-5 is revisited, stressing the role of the Al-Al interaction. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Coulomb interactions are not the key factors controlling the Al siting. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Anisotropy of the framework is identified as a source of departure from Dempsey's rule.

An improved attribute reduction scheme with covering based rough sets  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Attribute reduction is viewed as an important preprocessing step for pattern recognition and data mining. Most of researches are focused on attribute reduction by using rough sets. Recently, Tsang et al. discussed attribute reduction with covering rough sets in the paper (Tsang et al., 2008), where an approach based on discernibility matrix was presented to compute all attribute reducts. In this paper, we provide a new method for constructing simpler discernibility matrix with covering based rough sets, and improve some characterizations of attribute reduction provided by Tsang et al. It is proved that the improved discernibility matrix is equivalent to the old one, but the computational complexity of discernibility matrix is relatively reduced. Then we further study attribute reduction in decision tables based on a different strategy of identifying objects. Finally, the proposed reduction method is compared with some existing feature selection methods by numerical experiments and the experimental results show that the proposed reduction method is efficient and effective.

Aberrant activation of any of the four human Notch receptors has been linked to diseases, particularly cancer, making the Notch pathway a compelling target for new drug studies. A research team from Bay Area companies Genentech and Exelixis has synthesized highly specialized antibody inhibitors that specifically inhibit only Notch1 or Notch2, acting through a potent and novel mechanism of Notch inhibition. These antibodies, characterized at ALS Beamline 5.0.2, could provide the tools to therapeutically target individual Notch receptors, avoiding the intestinal toxicity ascribed to treatment with more than one, or a pan-Notch, inhibitor.

Improving steam turbine efficiency  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes the condition of a significant number of fossil steam turbines operating in the United States and the maintenance practices used to improve their performance. Through the use of steam path audits conducted by the authors` company and by several utilities, a large data base of information on turbine heat rate, casing efficiency, and maintenance practices is available to help the power generation industry understand how different maintenance practices and steam path damage impact turbine performance. The data base reveals that turbine cycle heat rate is typically 5.23% poorer than design just prior to major outages. The degraded condition of steam turbines presents an opportunity for utilities to improve heat rate and reduce emissions without increasing fuel costs. The paper describes what losses typically contribute to the 5.23% heat rate degradation and how utilities can recover steam turbine performance through maintenance actions aimed at improving steam path efficiency.

OIT geothermal system improvements  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Oregon Institute of Technology campus has been heated by the direct use of geothermal fluids since 1964. The 11 building campus uses geothermal energy for space heating/cooling, domestic water heating, the swimming pool and sidewalk snow melt. The hydronic system was designed to use the geothermal fluids directly in heating units. In the 1970s, problems were experienced with the design and operation of the well pumps, buried piping and heating equipment. Beginning in the early 1980`s, many improvements were made to the system due to equipment performance problems and resource management requirements. This paper discusses those improvements that included the distribution system, cooling, well pumps, cascading of geothermal fluids, installation of isolation plate heat exchangers in each building and drilling of two injection wells. Plans for future improvements include better controls to manage energy use and data monitoring systems for individual buildings, and instrumentation to monitor well pump performance.

Phase Development in a U-7 wt.% Mo vs. Al-7 wt.% Ge Diffusion Couple  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Fuel development for the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) program has demonstrated that U-Mo alloys in contact with Al develop interaction regions with phases that have poor irradiation behavior. The addition of Si to the Al has been considered with positive results. Compositional modification to replace Si with Ge is now under evaluation to attempt to further improve irradiation behavior. In this study, the microstructural and phase development of a diffusion couple of U-7 wt.% Mo in contact with Al-7 wt.% Ge was examined by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy. The interdiffusion zone developed a microstructure that included the cubic-UGe3 phase and amorphous phases. The UGe3 phase was observed with and without Mo and Al solid solutioning developing a (U,Mo)(Al,Ge)3 phase.

Zum Beispiel, auch wenn den Physikern die Massen aller Quarks - mit Ausnahme derjenigen des top Quarks - seit Jahren bekannt waren, so war es dennoch nicht möglich die Masse des top Quarks ohne die Hilfe experimenteller Daten genau vorherzusagen.

Bautista Gomez Argonne National Laboratory Franck Cappello Argonne National Laboratory Abstract-Modern scientific technology such as particle accel- erators, telescopes and supercomputers are producing extremely large amounts of data. That scientific data needs to be processed using systems with high computational capabilities such as supercomputers. Given that the scientific data is increasing in size at an exponential rate, storing and accessing the data is becoming expensive in both, time and space. Most of this scientific data is stored using floating point representation. Scientific applications executed in supercomputers spend a large amount of CPU cycles reading and writing floating point values, making data compression techniques an interesting way to increase computing efficiency.

Optical properties of ??-CoAl  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The optical absorptance of ??-CoAl in the (0.1-2.5)-eV region was measured and analyzed by the Kramers-Kronig method. The optical conductivity shows interband features beginning below 0.1 eV, with several structures below 2 eV. These structures agree with those calculated from the energy bands of Moruzzi, Williams, and Gelatt. The experimentally observed systematics in CoAl and NiAl confirm our previous interpretation of the spectra of ??-NiAl, and disagree with other experimental and theoretical attempts to understand the optical properties of these compounds.

Methods for improved growth of group III nitride buffer layers  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Methods are disclosed for growing high crystal quality group III-nitride epitaxial layers with advanced multiple buffer layer techniques. In an embodiment, a method includes forming group III-nitride buffer layers that contain aluminum on suitable substrate in a processing chamber of a hydride vapor phase epitaxy processing system. A hydrogen halide or halogen gas is flowing into the growth zone during deposition of buffer layers to suppress homogeneous particle formation. Some combinations of low temperature buffers that contain aluminum (e.g., AlN, AlGaN) and high temperature buffers that contain aluminum (e.g., AlN, AlGaN) may be used to improve crystal quality and morphology of subsequently grown group III-nitride epitaxial layers. The buffer may be deposited on the substrate, or on the surface of another buffer. The additional buffer layers may be added as interlayers in group III-nitride layers (e.g., GaN, AlGaN, AlN).

Quantitatively Probing the Al Distribution in Zeolites  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The degree of substitution of Si4+ by Al3+ in the oxygen-terminated tetrahedra (Al T-sites) of zeolites determines the concentration of ion-exchange and Brnsted acid sites. As the location of the tetrahedra and the associated subtle variations in bond angles influence the acid strength, quantitative information about Al T-sites in the framework is critical to rationalize catalytic properties and to design new catalysts. A quantitative analysis is reported that uses a combination of extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) analysis and 27Al MAS NMR spectroscopy supported by DFT-based molecular dynamics simulations. To discriminate individual Al atoms, sets of ab initio EXAFS spectra for various T-sites are generated from DFT-based molecular dynamics simulations allowing quantitative treatment of the EXAFS single- and multiple-photoelectron scattering processes out to 3-4 atom shells surrounding the Al absorption center. It is observed that identical zeolite types show dramatically different Al-distributions. A preference of Al for T-sites that are part of one or more 4-member rings in the framework over those T-sites that are part of only 5- and 6-member rings in the HBEA150 sample has been determined from a combination of these methods. This work was supported by the U. S. Department of Energy (DOE), Office of Basic Energy Sciences, Division of Chemical Sciences, Geosciences & Biosciences.

Improved plasma performance on Large Helical Device  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Since the start of the Large Helical Device(LHD) experiment various attempts have been made to achieve improved plasma performance in LHD [A. Iiyoshi et al. Nucl. Fusion39 1245 (1999)]. Recently an inward-shifted configuration with a magnetic axis position R ax of 3.6 m has been found to exhibit much better plasma performance than the standard configuration with R ax of 3.75 m. A factor of 1.6 enhancement of energy confinement time was achieved over the International Stellarator Scaling 95. This configuration has been predicted to have unfavorable magnetohydrodynamic(MHD)properties based on linear theory even though it has significantly better particle-orbit properties and hence lower neoclassical transport loss. However no serious confinement degradation due to the MHD activities was observed resolving favorably the potential conflict between stability and confinement at least up to the realized volume-averaged beta ??? of 2.4%. An improved radial profile of electron temperature was also achieved in the configuration with magnetic islands minimized by an external perturbation coil system for the Local IslandDivertor (LID). The LID has been proposed for remarkable improvement of plasma confinement like the high (H) mode in tokamaks and the LID function was suggested in limiter experiments.

Crystallographic Consulting Brings Crystallographic Consulting Brings Research to the ALS Crystallographic Consulting Brings Research to the ALS Print Wednesday, 06 February 2013 15:50 cc Tom Pauly and Josh Stillwell, managing partners at Crystallographic Consulting, have a rich history as synchrotron users. It is likely because of this that they're entrusted with the protein crystallography research for about 15 cutting-edge pharmaceutical companies. They conduct most of their research at ALS Beamline 5.0.2. Crystallographic Consulting has a varied client base that includes many of the participating research team (PRT) members at the Berkeley Center for Structural Biology (BCSB), which operates five ALS beamlines. As PRT members, companies are guaranteed a certain amount of beam time. Crystallographic Consulting also contracts beam time for another 10-12 companies. Pauly spends about 15-20 hours a week at the ALS, with most of his research supporting pharmaceutical companies working on new treatments for metabolic diseases and cancer.

Composite coatings improve engines  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

About 40% of the power loss in engine systems is attributed to the adverse effects of friction in reciprocating engine components. Over half of this power loss is caused by friction between pistons, piston rings, and cylinder bores. In addition, engine parts may be attacked by corrosive gasoline substitutes such as liquid propane gas and alcohol/gasoline mixtures. To solve both friction and corrosion problems, Nihon Parkerizing Co. has improved the nickel-phosphorus based ceramic composite (NCC) plating technology that was developed for cylinder bores and pistons by Suzuki Motor Co. in the mid 1970s. Iron and nickel-based composite plating technologies have been investigated since the early 1970s, and a few have been used on small two-stroke motorcycle, outboard marine, snowmobile, and some luxury passenger car engine components. Both nickel- and iron-base plating processes are used on cylinders and pistons because they offer excellent wear and corrosion resistance. Nickel-base films have higher corrosion resistance than those based on iron, and are capable of withstanding the corrosive conditions characteristic of high methanol fuels. Unfortunately, they experience a decrease in hardness as operating temperatures increase. However, NCC coatings with phosphorus additions have high hardness even under severe operating conditions, and hardness increases upon exposure to elevated temperatures. In addition to high hardness and corrosion resistance, NCC coatings provide a low friction coefficient, which contributes to the reduction of friction losses between sliding components. When used in low-quality or alcohol fuels, the corrosion resistance of NCC coatings is far higher than that of Fe-P plating. Additionally, the coatings reduce wall and piston temperature, wear of ring groove and skirt, and carbon deposit formation, and they improve output power and torque. These advantages all contribute to the development of light and efficient engines with better fuel mileage.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper provides a brief review of the recent progress in research and development of Ni{sub 3}Al and its alloys. Emphasis has been placed on understanding low ductility and brittle fracture of Ni{sub 3}Al alloys at ambient and elevated temperatures. Recent studies have resulted in identifying both intrinsic and extrinsic factors governing the fracture behavior of Ni{sub 3}Al alloys. Parallel efforts on alloy design using physical metallurgy principles have led to properties for structural use. Industrial interest in these alloys is high, and examples of industrial involvement in processing and utilization of these alloys are briefly mentioned.

GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells with indirect-gap AlGaAs barriers for solar cell applications  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We have fabricated GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well (QW) solar cells in which 3?nm-thick QWs and indirect-gap Al{sub 0.78}Ga{sub 0.22}As barriers are embedded, and we studied extraction processes of photogenerated carriers in this QW system. The photocurrent under 700?nm light illumination at voltages close to the open-circuit voltage shows only a small reduction, indicating that the carrier recombination inside QWs is largely suppressed. We attribute this result to an efficient extraction of electrons from the QWs through the X-valley of AlGaAs. The insertion of QWs is shown to be effective in extending the absorption wavelengths and in enhancing the photocurrent. The use of indirect-gap materials as barriers is found to enhance carrier extraction processes, and result in an improved performance of QW solar cells.

CONFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT USING GELS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes work performed during the third and final year of the project, ''Conformance Improvement Using Gels.'' Corefloods revealed throughput dependencies of permeability reduction by polymers and gels that were much more prolonged during oil flow than water flow. This behavior was explained using simple mobility ratio arguments. A model was developed that quantitatively fits the results and predicts ''clean up'' times for oil productivity when production wells are returned to service after application of a polymer or gel treatment. X-ray computed microtomography studies of gels in strongly water-wet Berea sandstone and strongly oil-wet porous polyethylene suggested that oil penetration through gel-filled pores occurs by a gel-dehydration mechanism, rather than gel-ripping or gel-displacement mechanisms. In contrast, analysis of data from the University of Kansas suggests that the gel-ripping or displacement mechanisms are more important in more permeable, strongly water-wet sandpacks. These findings help to explain why aqueous gels can reduce permeability to water more than to oil under different conditions. Since cement is the most commonly used material for water shutoff, we considered when gels are preferred over cements. Our analysis and experimental results indicated that cement cannot be expected to completely fill (top to bottom) a vertical fracture of any width, except near the wellbore. For vertical fractures with apertures less than 4 mm, the cement slurry will simply not penetrate very far into the fracture. For vertical fractures with apertures greater than 4 mm, the slurry may penetrate a substantial distance into the bottom part of the fracture. However, except near the wellbore, the upper part of the fracture will remain open due to gravity segregation. We compared various approaches to plugging fractures using gels, including (1) varying polymer content, (2) varying placement (extrusion) rate, (3) using partially formed gels, (4) using combinations of high and low molecular weight (Mw) polymers, (5) using secondary crosslinking reactions, (6) injecting un-hydrated polymer particles, and (7) incorporating particulates. All of these methods showed promise in some aspects, but required performance improvements in other aspects. All materials investigated to date showed significant performance variations with fracture width. High pressure gradients and limited distance of penetration are common problems in tight fractures. Gravity segregation and low resistance to breaching are common problems in wide fractures. These will be key issues to address in future work. Although gels can exhibit disproportionate permeability reduction in fractures, the levels of permeability reduction for oil flow are too high to allow practical exploitation in most circumstances. In contrast, disproportionate permeability reduction provided by gels that form in porous rock (adjacent to the fractures) has considerable potential in fractured systems.

ALS Reveals New State of Matter Print ALS Reveals New State of Matter Print ALS user groups from Princeton and Stanford have been making waves this past year with several high-profile papers and extensive news coverage of their work on a new state of matter embodied by "topological insulators," materials that conduct electricity only on their surfaces. First identified at the ALS in 2007 by a Princeton team led by M. Zahid Hasan, topological insulators have been the subject of intense interest, based on unusual quantum properties that manifest themselves macroscopically. The discovery of a "second generation" of topological insulators that robustly retain these properties well above room temperature has spurred a rising tide of theoretical proposals for potential applications in nanoscale spintronic devices and fault-tolerant quantum computers. In addition, it's also been suggested that topological insulators may serve as a test bed for studies of never-before-seen particles predicted by high-energy physics.

Transport properties of LiAl  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In "real" LiAl (NaTl structure: Fd3m), the majority carriers govern the transport properties are holes at 77 and 300 K. The decrease in Hall coefficients and the increase in electrical resistivity with the increase of Li composition are understood in terms of the "defect" structure of LiAl. The relationship between the transport properties and band structure is discussed using the semimetallic band structure proposed by Zunger.

Magnetism of Al-Mn quasicrystals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The effect of symmetry and concentration of Mn on the magnetism of Al-Mn quasicrystals has been investigated through self-consistent density-functional calculations using molecular clusters and supercell band-structure schemes. A single Mn atom surrounded by 54 Al atoms in an icosahedral or a cuboctahedral structure is found to be nonmagnetic. However, as the Mn concentration is increased, moments develop on Mn sites whose magnitude and coupling depend on their location.

Tevatron improvement program  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A modest Tevatron improvement program is suggested which would provide a storage ring for dedicated use as a p anti p collider at 2 TeV (cm) and as an ep collider at 0.2 TeV (cm). It could also serve as a useful test facility for some of the new developments necessary for an economical SSC. Because use could be made of utilities and facilities that are already installed as part of the tevatron, the cost of the p anti p option might be about 100 million dollars (not including the interaction halls or detectors). The additional cost of a 10 x 1000 GeV' ep option might be about 70 million dollars. The experimental facilities at B and D of the Tevatron might be extended for use with the new collider. As the technology of superconducting magnets develops, the cm energy of the p anti p and the ep colliders might be doubled. The intention is either to double the capability of TeV I and TeV II, or to extend the capability by addition of an ep facility. Alternatively, by adding another proton ring, a high luminosity pp facility might also result.

CONFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT USING GELS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes work performed during the second year of the project, ''Conformance Improvement Using Gels.'' The project has two objectives. The first objective is to identify gel compositions and conditions that substantially reduce flow through fractures that allow direct channeling between wells, while leaving secondary fractures open so that high fluid injection and production rates can be maintained. The second objective is to optimize treatments in fractured production wells, where the gel must reduce permeability to water much more than that to oil. Pore-level images from X-ray computed microtomography were re-examined for Berea sandstone and porous polyethylene. This analysis suggests that oil penetration through gel-filled pores occurs by a gel-dehydration mechanism, rather than a gel-ripping mechanism. This finding helps to explain why aqueous gels can reduce permeability to water more than to oil. We analyzed a Cr(III)-acetate-HPAM gel treatment in a production well in the Arbuckle formation. The availability of accurate pressure data before, during, and after the treatment was critical for the analysis. After the gel treatment, water productivity was fairly constant at about 20% of the pre-treatment value. However, oil productivity was stimulated by a factor of 18 immediately after the treatment. During the six months after the treatment, oil productivity gradually decreased to approach the pre-treatment value. To explain this behavior, we proposed that the fracture area open to oil flow was increased substantially by the gel treatment, followed by a gradual closing of the fractures during subsequent production. For a conventional Cr(III)-acetate-HPAM gel, the delay between gelant preparation and injection into a fracture impacts the placement, leakoff, and permeability reduction behavior. Formulations placed as partially formed gels showed relatively low pressure gradients during placement, and yet substantially reduced the flow capacity of fractures (with widths from 1 to 4 mm) during brine and oil flow after placement. Regardless of gel age before placement, very little gel washed out from the fractures during brine or oil flow. However, increased brine or oil flow rate and cyclic injection of oil and water significantly decreased the level of permeability reduction. A particular need exists for gels that can plug large apertures (e.g., wide fractures and vugs). Improved mechanical strength and stability were demonstrated (in 1- to 4-mm-wide fractures) for a gel that contained a combination of high- and low-molecular weight polymers. This gel reduced the flow capacity of 2- and 4-mm-wide fractures by 260,000. In a 1-mm-wide fracture, it withstood 26 psi/ft without allowing any brine flow through the fracture. Cr(III)-acetate-HPAM gels exhibited disproportionate permeability reduction in fractures. The effect was most pronounced when the gel was placed as gelant or partially formed gels. The effect occurred to a modest extent with concentrated gels and with gels that were ''fully formed'' when placed. The effect was not evident in tubes. We explored swelling polymers for plugging fractures. Polymer suspensions were quickly prepared and injected. In concept, the partially dissolved polymer would lodge and swell to plug the fracture. For three types of swelling polymers, behavior was promising. However, additional development is needed before their performance will be superior to that of conventional gels.

Effect of thermomechanical processing on mechanical properties of Fe-16 at. % Al alloy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An iron-aluminum alloy containing 16 at. % Al, which is essentially free from environmental effect on its ductility, has been developed. This alloy has over 20% elongation at room temperature. This paper presents in detail the effect of vacuum versus air melting on the properties of Fe-16 at. % Al alloy. The comparative results have shown air-induction melting to produce lower room-temperature ductility for the identical processing steps. Additional processing steps required to improve the ductility of air-melted material are also identified.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance in FeAl and CoAl  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have investigated the Al27 nuclear magnetic resonance in Ni3Al, NiAl, FeAl, and both the Al27 and Co59 resonances in CoAl. The cobalt resonance in CoAl exhibits a weakly temperature-dependent, positive shift. This shift (?1.5%) is too large to be accounted for solely by the hyperfine field from conduction electrons polarized by the external magnetic field, and orbital paramagnetic effects appear to be the dominant factor, core polarization playing a relatively minor role. The aluminum Knight shift in CoAl is small (0.014%) and temperature-independent. This is to be contrasted with aluminum in FeAl which exhibits a large, negative, temperature-dependent shift (-0.38% at 293K). It is shown that both the large aluminum Knight shift in FeAl and the small aluminum Knight shift in CoAl are consistent with the predictions of the Ruderman-Kittel-Yosida (RKY) theory. However, it is now believed that the small shift observed in CoAl results from a lack of s character in the conduction-electron wave functions rather than from a node anticipated in the conduction-electron polarization. The temperature dependence of the resonance in FeAl can also be accounted for by the RKY mechanism if it is assumed that the temperature dependence of the magnetic susceptibility is associated with disorder in the material. This assumption is necessary because the Knight shift is not linearly related to the bulk susceptibility of the sample. The aluminum linewidth in FeAl increases as the temperature is lowered. At room temperature the linewidth is independent of magnetic field but greater than the calculated dipolar linewidth. At 77 and 4.2K the linewidth increases with increasing magnetic field. This effect is attributed mainly to inhomogeneous Knight-shift broadening, although inhomogeneous magnetization broadening also contributes. A similar situation is observed in CoAl. At room temperature the cobalt and aluminum resonances have essentially the same width. The linewidths are independent of magnetic field but greater than the dipolar values. As the temperature is lowered the linewidths increase and become magnetic-field-dependent. The cobalt resonance broadens more severely than the aluminum resonance. It is believed that inhomogeneous Knight-shift broadening and inhomogeneous magnetization broadening determine the cobalt linewidth at low temperatures. The aluminum nuclei in CoAl do not exhibit appreciable hyperfine coupling with the conduction electrons, so that only inhomogeneous magnetization broadening contributes to the linewidth.

CONFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT USING GELS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This technical progress report describes work performed from September 1, 2003, through February 29, 2004, for the project, ''Conformance Improvement Using Gels.'' We examined the properties of several ''partially formed'' gels that were formulated with a combination of high and low molecular weight HPAM polymers. After placement in 4-mm-wide fractures, these gels required about 25 psi/ft for brine to breach the gel (the best performance to date in fractures this wide). After this breach, stabilized residual resistance factors decreased significantly with increased flow rate. Also, residual resistance factors were up to 9 times greater for water than for oil. Nevertheless, permeability reduction factors were substantial for both water and oil flow. Gel with 2.5% chopped fiberglass effectively plugged 4-mm-wide fractures if a 0.5-mm-wide constriction was present. The ability to screen-out at a constriction appears crucial for particulate incorporation to be useful in plugging fractures. In addition to fiberglass, we examined incorporation of polypropylene fibers into gels. Once dispersed in brine or gelant, the polypropylene fibers exhibited the least gravity segregation of any particulate that we have tested to date. In fractures with widths of at least 2 mm, 24-hr-old gels (0.5% high molecular weight HPAM) with 0.5% fiber did not exhibit progressive plugging during placement and showed extrusion pressure gradients similar to those of gels without the fiber. The presence of the fiber roughly doubled the gel's resistance to first breach by brine flow. The breaching pressure gradients were not as large as for gels made with high and low molecular weight polymers (mentioned above). However, their material requirements and costs (i.e., polymer and/or particulate concentrations) were substantially lower than for those gels. A partially formed gel made with 0.5% HPAM did not enter a 0.052-mm-wide fracture when applying a pressure gradient of 65 psi/ft. This result suggests a lower limit of fracture width for entry of formed or partially formed gels (when reasonable pressure gradients are applied). In unfractured porous rock, we investigated the time dependence of oil and water permeabilities during various cycles of oil and water injection after placement of a Cr(III)-acetate-HPAM gel. Permeability to water stabilized rapidly (within 1 pore volume, PV), while permeability to oil stabilized gradually over the course of 100 PV. The behavior was surprisingly insensitive to core material (strongly water-wet Berea sandstone and strongly oil-wet porous polyethylene), core permeability (740 to 10,000 md), and applied pressure gradient (10 to 100 psi/ft).

Al-Ckpt: Leveraging Memory Access Patterns for Adaptive Asynchronous Al-Ckpt: Leveraging Memory Access Patterns for Adaptive Asynchronous Incremental Checkpointing Title Al-Ckpt: Leveraging Memory Access Patterns for Adaptive Asynchronous Incremental Checkpointing Publication Type Conference Proceedings Year of Publication 2013 Authors Nicolae, B, Cappello, F Conference Name HPDC'13 Conference Location New York City Abstract With increasing scale and complexity of supercomputing and cloud computing architectures, faults are becoming a frequent occurrence, which makes reliability a difficult challenge. Although for some applications it is enough to restart failed tasks, there is a large class of applications where tasks run for a long time or are tightly coupled, thus making a restart from scratch unfeasible. Checkpoint-Restart (CR), the main method to survive failures for such applications faces additional challenges in this context: not only does it need to minimize the performance overhead on the application due to checkpointing, but it also needs to operate with scarce resources. Given the iterative nature of the targeted applications, we launch the assumption that first-time writes to memory during asynchronous checkpointing generate the same kind of interference as they did in past iterations. Based on this assumption, we propose novel asynchronous checkpointing approach that leverages both current and past access pattern trends in order to optimize the order in which memory pages are flushed to stable storage. Large scale experiments show up to 60% improvement when compared to state-of-art checkpointing approaches, all this achievable with an extra memory requirement of less than 5% of the total application memory.

ALS Reveals New State of Matter  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

ALS Reveals New State of Matter ALS Reveals New State of Matter ALS Reveals New State of Matter Print Wednesday, 13 October 2010 00:00 ALS user groups from Princeton and Stanford have been making waves this past year with several high-profile papers and extensive news coverage of their work on a new state of matter embodied by "topological insulators," materials that conduct electricity only on their surfaces. First identified at the ALS in 2007 by a Princeton team led by M. Zahid Hasan, topological insulators have been the subject of intense interest, based on unusual quantum properties that manifest themselves macroscopically. The discovery of a "second generation" of topological insulators that robustly retain these properties well above room temperature has spurred a rising tide of theoretical proposals for potential applications in nanoscale spintronic devices and fault-tolerant quantum computers. In addition, it's also been suggested that topological insulators may serve as a test bed for studies of never-before-seen particles predicted by high-energy physics.

The mechanical properties of FeAl  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Only in the last few years has progress been made in obtaining reproducible mechanical properties data for FeAl. Two sets of observations are the foundation of this progress. The first is that the large vacancy concentrations that exist in FeAl at high temperature are easily retained at low temperature and that these strongly affect the low-temperature mechanical properties. The second is that RT ductility is adversely affected by water vapor. Purpose of this paper is not to present a comprehensive overview of the mechanical properties of FeAl but rather to highlight our understanding of key phenomena and to show how an understanding of the factors which control the yield strength and fracture behavior has followed the discovery of the above two effects. 87 refs, 9 figs.

Synthesis of nanostructured AlN by solid state reaction of Al and diaminomaleonitrile  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The solid state reaction of diaminomaleonitrile (DAMN) with aluminum via both mechanochemical and thermal treatment routes was studied by X-ray diffraction and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. During the milling process, the reaction starts with the deammoniation of the DAMN molecules, followed by the formation of nanostructured AlN powder as the main solid product after milling for 7 h. The reactivity of the mixed powder was also investigated during the conventional thermal treatment process using differential scanning calorimetry, derivative thermogravimetry and thermogravimetric analysis. The results reveal that DAMN starts to polymerize at 192 Degree-Sign C by the elimination of the amine groups. Furthermore, increasing the annealing temperature leads to the formation of a nitrogen-containing carbonaceous material with the structure similar to non-crystalline carbon. However, no evidence for the formation of AlN was observed in the annealed samples even at temperatures as high as the Al melting point. - Graphical abstract: AlN nanoparticles obtained after milling of Al and diaminomaleonitrile (DAMN) for 12 h.

Al-doped ZnO powdered materials: Al solubility limit and IR absorption properties  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Al-doped ZnO powder was synthesized via the Pechini route with a doping rate varying from 1 to 4mol.%. A solubility limit has been estimated under 0.3mol.% of Al using X-ray diffraction refinements. The incorporation of aluminium into the ZnO lattice was investigated by 27Al NMR, which suggests an extremely low amount of Al in a distribution of sites in ZnO. In order to assess the impact of such a low dopant amount, diffuse reflection experiments were performed for a wavelength range from 200 to 2500nm. If the effect of doping was negligible for samples prepared at 850C, annealing at 1200C clearly reveals enhanced IR absorption properties for the doped samples, which are similar whatever be the nominal Al content.

Characterization of Al-Mn particles in AZ91D investment castings  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Manganese is currently added to Mg-Al alloys in order to improve the corrosion behavior of cast components. A part of this manganese is dissolved in the magnesium matrix and the balance is found as fine Al(Mn,Fe) particles dispersed within castings. For AZ91D specimens prepared using the plaster mould investment casting process, these particles were observed in very large quantity at the surface of castings. These particles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy and electron probe microanalysis. It was found that they consist of Al{sub 8}Mn{sub 5} phase and that their morphology and size depend on local solidification conditions. Their presence at the surface of the castings is related to low solidification rates and reduced thermal gradients at the mould/metal interface.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Although particle reinforced metal matrix composites possess excellent physical properties, its machining performance is rather bad because of its specific structure. It is difficult to obtain good cutting effect by traditional machining method. So machining has become the bottleneck which strictly restricts its industry application. This paper mainly focuses on both wear characteristics of different tool materials and material removal mechanism in ultrasonic milling high volume fraction particle reinforced metal matrix composites SiCp/Al. An acoustic device for ultrasonic vibration milling was developed to introduce the ultrasonic vibration into the traditional machining process. Through the contrast experiment of traditional milling and ultrasonic vibration milling SiCp/Al, the mechanism of tool wear and characteristics of surface topography were analyzed. The experimental results showed that the surface integrity and tool life in the ultrasonic vibration milling SiCp/Al were improved.

MOCVD Growth of AlGaInN for UV Emitters  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Issues related to the growth of nitride-based UV emitters are investigated in this work. More than 100 times of improved in the optical efficiency of the GaN active region can be attained with a combination of raising the growth pressure and introducing a small amount of indium. The unique issue in the UV emitter concerning the use of AlGaN for confinement and the associated tensile cracking is also investigated. They showed that the quaternary AlGaInN is potentially capable of providing confinement to GaN and GaN:In active regions while maintaining lattice matching to GaN, unlike the AlGaN ternary system.

Optimization of High Temperature Hoop Creep Response in ODS-Fe3Al Tubes  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) Fe3Al alloys are currently being developed for heat-exchanger tubes for eventual use at operating temperatures of up to 1100 C in the power generation industry. The development challenges include (a) efforts to produce thin walled ODS-Fe3Al tubes, employing powder extrusion methodologies, with (b) adequate increased strength for service at operating temperatures to (c) mitigate creep failures by enhancing the as-processed grain size. A detailed and comprehensive research and development methodology is prescribed to produce ODS-Fe3Al thin walled tubes. Current single step extrusion consolidation methodologies typically yield 8ft. lengths of 1-3/8 inch diameter, 1/8 inch wall thickness ODS-Fe3Al tubes. The process parameters for such consolidation methodologies have been prescribed and evaluated as being routinely reproducible. Recrystallization treatments at 1200 C produce elongated grains (with their long axis parallel to the extrusion axis), typically 200-2000 {micro}m in diameter, and several millimeters long. The dispersion distribution is unaltered on a micro scale by recrystallization, but the high aspect ratio grain shape typically obtained limits grain spacing and consequently the hoop creep response. Improving hoop creep in ODS-alloys requires an understanding and manipulating the factors that control grain alignment and recrystallization behavior. Current efforts are focused on examining the processing dependent longitudinal vs. transverse creep anisotropy, and exploring post-extrusion methods to improve hoop creep response in ODS-Fe3Al alloy tubes. In this report we examine the mechanisms of hoop creep failure and describe our efforts to improve creep performance via variations in thermal-mechanical treatments.

Alloying and coating strategies for improved PbLi compatibility in DEMO-type fusion reactors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Two strategies were explored to improve the Pb16Li compatibility of Fe-base alloys for a fusion energy blanket system. The use of thin (?50?m) Al-rich diffusion coatings on Grade 92 (9Cr2W) substrates significantly reduced the mass loss in static PbLi capsule tests for up to 5000h at 600C and 700C. However, significant Al loss was observed at 700C. Thicker coatings with FeAl intermetallic layers partially spalled after exposure at 700C, suggesting that coating strategies are limited to lower temperatures. To identify compositions for further alloy development, model FeCrAlY alloys with 1020wt.%Cr and 35%Al were exposed for 1000h at 700C. There was little effect on mass change of varying the Cr content, however, alloys with <5% Al showed mass losses in these experiments. For both coatings and FeCrAl alloys, the surface reaction product was LiAlO2 after exposure and cleaning.

Electromigration wind force at stepped Al surfaces  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

When an electrical current flows parallel to a stepped metal surface, each step experiences a force due to momentum transfer from the carriers that are diffusely scattered by the step edge. In this paper, a ballistic model is used to compute the wind force per unit length acting on the steps of vicinal (100) surfaces of Al. The carrier scattering at the surface is described by a potential-barrier model fit to the results of a first-principles calculation of the surface-induced resistivity of the unstepped surface. The magnitude of the wind force is an increasing function of the step terrace width and reaches a constant value as the steps move apart. For an isolated step on a Al(100) surface, the effective wind valence per unit length of the step edge is zw?-15e -1. This value is equivalent to a wind valence of zw?-43e per atom at the leading edge of each step.

Effect of milling time and CNT concentration on hardness of CNT/Al{sub 2024} composites produced by mechanical alloying  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Carbon nanotube/2024 aluminum alloy (CNT/Al{sub 2024}) composites were fabricated with a combination of mechanical alloying (MA) and powder metallurgy routes. Composites were microstructurally and mechanically evaluated at sintering condition. A homogeneous dispersion of CNTs in the Al matrix was observed by a field emission scanning electron microscopy. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy confirmed not only the presence of well dispersed CNTs but also needle-like shape aluminum carbide (Al{sub 4}C{sub 3}) crystals in the Al matrix. The formation of Al{sub 4}C{sub 3} was suggested as the interaction between the outer shells of CNTs and the Al matrix during MA process in which crystallization took place after the sintering process. The mechanical behavior of composites was evaluated by Vickers microhardness measurements indicating a significant improvement in hardness as function of the CNT content. This improvement was associated to a homogeneous dispersion of CNTs and the presence of Al{sub 4}C{sub 3} in the aluminum alloy matrix. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The 2024 aluminum alloy was reinforced by CNTs by mechanical alloying process. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Composites were microstructural and mechanically evaluated after sintering condition. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The greater the CNT concentration, the greater the hardness of the composites. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Higher hardness in composites is achieved at 20 h of milling. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The formation of Al{sub 4}C{sub 3} does not present a direct relationship with the milling time.

Al-Ca and Al-Fe metal-metal composite strength, conductivity, and microstructure relationships  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Deformation processed metal-metal composites (DMMCs) are composites formed by mechanical working (i.e., rolling, swaging, or wire drawing) of two-phase, ductile metal mixtures. Since both the matrix and reinforcing phase are ductile metals, the composites can be heavily deformed to reduce the thickness and spacing of the two phases. Recent studies have shown that heavily drawn DMMCs can achieve anomalously high strength and outstanding combinations of strength and conductivity. In this study, Al-Fe wire composite with 0.07, 0.1, and 0.2 volume fractions of Fe filaments and Al-Ca wire composite with 0.03, 0.06, and 0.09 volume fractions of Ca filaments were produced in situ, and their mechanical properties were measured as a function of deformation true strain. The Al-Fe composites displayed limited deformation of the Fe phase even at high true strains, resulting in little strengthening effect in those composites. Al-9vol%Ca wire was deformed to a deformation true strain of 13.76. The resulting Ca second-phase filaments were deformed to thicknesses on the order of one micrometer. The ultimate tensile strength increased exponentially with increasing deformation true strain, reaching a value of 197 MPa at a true strain of 13.76. This value is 2.5 times higher than the value predicted by the rule of mixtures. A quantitative relationship between UTS and deformation true strain was determined. X-ray diffraction data on transformation of Al + Ca microstructures to Al + various Al-Ca intermetallic compounds were obtained at the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Laboratory. Electrical conductivity was measured over a range of true strains and post-deformation heat treatment schedules.

HVAC Improvements for Existing Houses HVAC Improvements for Existing Houses Speaker(s): Chryséis Bovagnet Date: September 5, 2002 - 12:00pm Location: Bldg. 90 Many older houses in the US are either not well designed from a thermal point of view or have HVAC (Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning) systems in need of repairs or improvements. The building envelopes tend to have poor insulation and lots of leakage, and the HVAC systems are inefficient. The cooling/heating equipment is often located outside of the conditioned space (e.g. in attics or crawlspaces) with ducts that leak and have poor insulation, which cause energy loss and bad occupant comfort on peak days or in extreme climates. We developed a series of retrofits that will allow us to reduce the energy consumption of residential HVAC

Energy localization on the Al sublattice of Pt3Al with L12 order  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A three-dimensional molecular-dynamics model of with order was developed and found to support the excitation of discrete breathers (DBs) and energy localization on the Al sublattice. For an initial lattice temperature of 0 K, large-amplitude DBs polarized along [100] are found to be very weakly damped, retaining most of their initial energy for more than 2000 cycles, while DBs polarized along [111] damped out over ~30 cycles. Because the DBs and their dissipation channels are confined to the Al sublattice, long-lived nonequilibrium states with large energy differences between the Al and Pt sublattices occur. Since collisions during irradiation more efficiently generate lattice vibrations in light atoms than heavy atoms, such nonequilibrium states may occur and alter the relaxation processes occurring during radiation damage.

Magnetostrictive materials and method for improving AC characteristics in same  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention provides Terfenol-D alloys ("doped" Terfenol) having optimized performances under the condition of time-dependent magnetic fields. In one embodiment, performance is optimized by lowering the conductivity of Terfenol, thereby improving the frequency response. This can be achieved through addition of Group III or IV elements, such as Si and Al. Addition of these types of elements provides scattering sites for conduction electrons, thereby increasing resistivity by 125% which leads to an average increase in penetration depth of 80% at 1 kHz and an increase in energy conversion efficiency of 55%. The permeability of doped Terfenol remains constant over a wider frequency range as compared with undoped Terfenol. These results demonstrate that adding impurities, such as Si and Al, are effective in improving the ac characteristics of Terfenol. A magnetoelastic Gruneisen parameter, .gamma..sub.me, has also been derived from the thermodynamic equations of state, and provides another means by which to characterize the coupling efficiency in magnetostrictive materials on a more fundamental basis.

Transport properties in AlInSb/InAsSb heterostructures  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Based on theoretical studies of transport properties in InAsSb-based quantum well heterostructures, we propose a material design for InAsSb quantum well with AlInSb barrier. Variation of electron mobility and two-dimensional electron gas concentration in Al{sub y}In{sub 1?y}Sb/InAs{sub 1?x}Sb{sub x} heterostructures over the compositional range of which InAsSb is fully strained to AlInSb are investigated, where impact from dislocation scattering could be minimized. In comparison with InAs and InSb based quantum well heterostructures, InAsSb is advantageous in achieving the highest electron mobility despite of alloy disorder scattering. The maximum mobility of 37?000 cm{sup 2}/V s is attainable in 15?nm InAs{sub 0.2}Sb{sub 0.8} quantum well with Al{sub 0.24}In{sub 0.76}Sb barrier and there is great potential for further improvement. Our InAsSb based quantum well heterostructure is proved to be a robust structure for high-speed applications.

Recent advances in alloy design of Ni{sub 3}Al alloys for structural use  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This is a comprehensive review of recent advances in R&D of Ni{sub 3}Al-based alloys for structural use at elevated temperatures in hostile environments. Recent studies indicate that polycrystalline Ni{sub 3}Al is intrinsically quite ductile at ambient temperatures, and its poor tensile ductility and brittle grain-boundary fracture are caused mainly by moisture-induced hydrogen embrittlement when the aluminide is tested in moisture- or hydrogen-containing environments. Tensile ductility is improved by alloying with substitutional and interstitial elements. Among these additives, B is most effective in suppressing environmental embrittlement and enhancing grain-boundary cohesion, resulting in a dramatic increase of tensile ductility at room temperature. Both B-doped and B-free Ni{sub 3}Al alloys exhibit brittle intergranular fracture and low ductility at intermediate temperatures (300-850 C) because of oxygen-induced embrittlement in oxidizing environments. Cr is found to be most effective in alleviating elevated-temperature embrittlement. Parallel efforts on alloy development using physical metallurgy principles have led to development of several Ni{sub 3}Al alloys for industrial use. The unique properties of these alloys are briefly discussed. 56 refs, 15 figs, 3 tabs.

Propane dehydrogenation over Al2O3 supported Pt nanoparticles: Effect of cerium addition  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The catalyst of Pt nanoparticles loaded on Al2O3 support has been prepared by a facile liquid phase synthesisultrasonic vibration method. With propane dehydrogenation as a probe reaction, the influence of promoter cerium (Ce) on the catalyst was investigated by means of transmission electron microscope (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorptiondesorption, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy of CO adsorption, H2-temperature programmed reduction (H2-TPR), and catalytic properties for propane dehydrogenation. The results revealed that the Pt nanograins with diameter of 1.64.8nm were evenly dispersed on the Ce-containing Al2O3 support. The introduction of a small amount Ce into Pt/Al2O3 results in a bimetallic surface interaction, enhancing the surface reducibility and dispersity of Pt nanoparticles. The study of propane dehydrogenation performance shows that Ce-containing Pt catalyst is more active and less coke deposition than Ce-free Pt/Al2O3 counterpart. This study can provide an insight into the design and development of new Pt-based catalyst, especially for the improvement of catalytic activity and stability towards alkane dehydrogenation.

Surface characterization and mechanical property evaluation of thermally oxidized Ti-6Al-4V  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The present study concerns development of a thin and adherent oxide film on the surface of Ti-6Al-4V by thermal oxidation. Thermal oxidation was carried out over a range of temperature between 400 to 600 deg. C and a time from 25 h to 60 h. A detailed characterization of the surface and cross section of the oxidized surface was carried out by optical/scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. Finally, the mechanical properties of the oxidized surface in terms of microindentation hardness and wear resistance were evaluated as a function of oxidation parameters. Surface oxidation of Ti-6Al-4V at 600 deg. C for 36 h offered a defect free oxide scale with improved hardness and wear resistance.

Improved layered mixed transition metal oxides for Li-ion batteries  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Recent work in our laboratory has been directed towards development of mixed layered transition metal oxides with general composition Li[Ni, Co, M, Mn]O2 (M=Al, Ti) for Li ion battery cathodes. Compounds such as Li[Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3]O2 (often called NMCs) are currently being commercialized for use in consumer electronic batteries, but the high cobalt content makes them too expensive for vehicular applications such as electric vehicles (EV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs), or hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). To reduce materials costs, we have explored partial or full substitution of Co with Al, Ti, and Fe. Fe substitution generally decreases capacity and results in poorer rate and cycling behavior. Interestingly, low levels of substitution with Al or Ti improve aspects of performance with minimal impact on energy densities, for some formulations. High levels of Al substitution compromise specific capacity, however, so further improvements require that the Ni and Mn content be increased and Co correspondingly decreased. Low levels of Al or Ti substitution can then be used offset negative effects induced by the higher Ni content. The structural and electrochemical characterization of substituted NMCs is presented in this paper.

Protein complex prediction via improved verification methods using constrained domain-domain matching  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Identification of protein complexes within protein-protein interaction networks is one of the important objectives in functional genomics. Ozawa et al. proposed a verification method of protein complexes by introducing a structural constraint. In this paper, we propose an improved integer programming-based method based on the idea that a candidate complex should not be divided into many small complexes, and combination methods with maximal components and extreme sets. The results of computational experiments suggest that our methods outperform the method by Ozawa et al. We prove that the verification problems are NP-hard, which justifies the use of integer programming.

Hydrothermal synthesis of MgAl layered double hydroxides (LDHs) from natural brucite and Al(OH)3  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

By using natural brucite and Al(OH)3 as the starting materials, the MgAl layered double hydroxides (MgAlCO3-LDHs) have been successfully synthesized via a simple hydrothermal strategy. The effect of hydrothermal synthesis temperature and reaction time on the crystal structure, grains size and Mg/Al molar ratios of MgAlCO3-LDHs were investigated. The results showed that the cell parameters and Mg/Al molar ratios of the MgAlCO3-LDHs increase when the hydrothermal reaction temperature increases from 140C to 180C. The size of crystal grain parallel to the direction of the layer D110 is roughly constant, while the size of crystal grain in the vertical direction of the layer D003 increases and D110/D003 decreases with the increment of hydrothermal reaction temperature.

Impermeable Thin Al2O3 Overlay for TBC Protection from Sulfate and Vanadate Attack in Gas Turbines  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Current advanced turbine system (ATS) requires thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) on turbine blades and vanes. The TBCs being specified, based on yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ), have the limited durability for advanced industrial gas turbine applications that have longer durability requirements (30,000 hours versus <10,000 hours), particularly when dirty fuels are burned. Surface deposits (including molten sulfate and vanadate salts) can penetrate into porous TBCs and result in hot corrosion, leading to premature spalling. In the present project, it is planed to deposit a dense overlay Al2O3 on the surface of the YSZ coating to prevent YSZ coating from hot corrosion of deposits derived from combustion of low-grade fuel and air impurities. The dense overlay Al2O3 acts as a barrier to protect TBC and bond coat. The overlay Al2O3 will be deposited on the surface of the thermal barrier coating using physical vapor deposition (PVD) technique and solgel method, respectively. The hot corrosion resistance of the composite Al2O3/YSZ coating will be evaluated. The hot corrosion behavior of the Al2O3/YSZ/NiCrAlY/superalloy system will be compared with the YSZ/NiCrAlY/superalloy system. The corrosion behavior of the sol-gel-modified Al2O3/YSZ system will also be compared with that of the PVD-treated system. The mechanism of hot corrosion will be investigated. The processing-structure-properties relationship of the overlays will be determined. The implementation of the TBC technology is to improve the durability of turbine components and allow the service of turbines in fuels with impurity, which will contribute to the missions and goals of the DOE ''Vision 21'' R&D program in advanced materials, energy efficiency, environment stewardship and energy production.

Overdamped Nb/Al-AlO{sub x}/Nb Josephson junctions  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report the fabrication and characterization of overdamped Nb/Al-AlO{sub x}/Nb superconductor-insulator-superconductor Josephson junction whose fabrication process derives from that of the well-known hysteretic junctions. These junctions are an intermediate state between the superconductor-normal metal-superconductor and the superconductor-insulator-superconductor Josephson junctions. Stable and reproducible nonhysteretic current-voltage characteristics are obtained with a proper choice of the fabrication parameters. We have measured critical current densities J{sub C} from 10{sup 3} up to 2x10{sup 4} A/cm{sup 2}, with characteristic voltages from 80 to nearly 450 {mu}V. The junctions are stable against time and repeated thermal cycling.

PROCESSING, MICROSTRUCTURE AND MECHANICAL PROPERTY CORRELATION IN Al-B4C SURFACE COMPOSITE PRODUCED VIA FRICTION STIR PROCESSING  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Friction stir processing (FSP) was employed to prepare surface composites (SC) composed of B4C particles in 5024 Al matrix. The processing parameters, such as hole pattern and geometry,and the number of FSP passes, were optimized to obtain uniform powder distribution. The micrographs revealed a homogeneous distribution of the particles with good interfacial bonding. The hardness of the composite was uniform across the processed region which again indicates the uniformity of powder distribution. The modulus of the surface composite was measured using strain gage and showed a significant improvement. This improvement in modulus lies in the load sharing capability from the soft matrix to the hard particles.

Composition pulling effect and strain relief mechanism in AlGaN/AlN distributed Bragg reflectors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report on the composition pulling effect and strain relief mechanism in AlGaN/AlN distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) grown on GaN template/{alpha}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}(0001) by metal organic chemical vapor deposition. The reciprocal space mapping contours reveal that these DBRs are coherently grown. Cross-section transmission electron microscopy image of the AlGaN/AlN DBRs and the energy-dispersive x-ray analysis indicate that an AlGaN layer with gradient Al composition is located between the Al{sub 0.4}Ga{sub 0.6}N and AlN layers along the [0001] direction. It is attributed to the fact that Ga atoms in AlGaN are pulled and segregated to the upper layer by the strain. The density of strain energy is estimated to reduce more than one order by forming this quasi-three-sublayer structure comparing to the designed bi-sublayer structure.

Effect of re-melting on particle distribution and interface formation in SiC reinforced 2124Al matrix composite  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The interface between metal matrix and ceramic reinforcement particles plays an important role in improving properties of the metal matrix composites. Hence, it is important to find out the interface structure of composite after re-melting. In the present investigation, the 2124Al matrix with 10 wt.% SiC particle reinforced composite was re-melted at 800 C and 900 C for 10 min followed by pouring into a permanent mould. The microstructures reveal that the SiC particles are distributed throughout the Al-matrix. The volume fraction of SiC particles varies from top to bottom of the composite plate and the difference increases with the decrease of re-melting temperature. The interfacial structure of re-melted 2124Al10 wt.%SiC composite was investigated using scanning electron microscopy, an electron probe micro-analyzer, a scanning transmission electron detector fitted with scanning electron microscopy and an X-ray energy dispersive spectrometer. It is found that a thick layer of reaction product is formed at the interface of composite after re-melting. The experimental results show that the reaction products at the interface are associated with high concentration of Cu, Mg, Si and C. At re-melting temperature, liquid Al reacts with SiC to form Al{sub 4}C{sub 3} and AlSi eutectic phase or elemental Si at the interface. High concentration of Si at the interface indicates that SiC is dissociated during re-melting. The X-ray energy dispersive spectrometer analyses confirm that Mg- and Cu-enrich phases are formed at the interface region. The Mg is segregated at the interface region and formed MgAl{sub 2}O{sub 4} in the presence of oxygen. The several elements identified at the interface region indicate that different types of interfaces are formed in between Al matrix and SiC particles. The AlSi eutectic phase is formed around SiC particles during re-melting which restricts the SiC dissolution. - Highlights: Re-melted composite shows homogeneous particle distribution Thick reaction products are observed at the interface Carbide is identified at interface due to SiC dissolution at high temperature Reaction products are also Si enrich phase Mg and Cu segregated and formed MgAl{sub 2}O{sub 4}, CuMgAl{sub 2} phase at grain boundary.

1 1 Green Cooling: Improving Chiller Efficiency This new chiller simulation module being developed by Building Performance Assurance Project members will help building managers compare optimal and actual chiller efficiency. Chillers are the single largest energy consumers in commercial buildings. These machines create peaks in electric power consumption, typically during summer afternoons. In fact, 23% of electricity generation is associated with powering chillers that use CFCs and HCFCs, ozone-depleting refrigerants. Satisfying the peak demand caused by chillers forces utilities to build new power plants. However, because chiller plants run the most when the weather is hot and very little at other times, their load factors - and hence the utilities' load factors (the percentage of time the

Efficiency improved turboprop. Technical memo  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Renewed attention has been focused on the efficiency of aircraft propulsion as the cost of fuel has risen. Studies conducted by NASA (1) to obtain fuel efficient aircraft have considered relatively highly-loaded turbo-prop systems. The disc loadings of these propellers are as much as four times higher than those on present turboprop aircraft. The higher disc loadings result in greater slipstream swirl and higher energy losses. Of primary importance is the radial distribution of the energy losses across the slipstream due to the tangential and axial velocities. This study presents the results of analysis defining the various sources of energy loss resulting from a swirling slipstream downstream of a propeller. Experimental data are presented demonstrating the presence of such losses and a propeller configuration discussed which offers improved propulsive performance when relatively highly-loaded propellers are employed.

Statistical atom: Some quantum improvements  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Thomas-Fermi model is improved by simultaneously introducing three different quantum corrections. The first concerns the nonlocality of quantum mechanics; we go beyond the von Weizscker approach by including arbitrary powers of the gradient of the single-particle potential. The second is a special treatment of the strongly bound electrons, which removes the incorrect statistical description of the vicinity of the nucleus. In the third we generalize Dirac's way of handling the exchange interaction by, again, including gradient effects to arbitrary order. All this is done in the framework of a "potential-functional method" and results in a new differential equation for the potential. The comparison of numerical results with both experimental and Hartree-Fock data for the mean-squared distance indicates a superiority of the new statistical theory over the Hartree-Fock theory, at least for the description of the outer reaches of the atom.

Properties of two-phase intermetallic (Ti, Nb){sub 3} (Al, Si) + (Ti, Nb){sub 5} (Si, Al){sub 3} P/M bulk and sheet material  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Intermetallic Ti-based alloy powder with nominal composition Ti 23.5Al5.5Si 10 Nb(at.%) was produced by argon gas atomization. This dual phase alloy is composed of the {alpha}{sub 2}-(Ti, Nb){sub 3} (Al,Si)-matrix phase and a eutectic mixture of {alpha}{sub 2}-(Ti, Nb){sub 3}(Al, Si) + {xi}-(Ti, Nb){sub 5} (Si, Al){sub 3}. The powder was compacted by hot isostatic pressing, subsequently hot rolled into sheets, and heat treated. The microstructures of the HIPed compacts and of the sheet materials were metallographically characterized and correlated with tensile properties at temperatures between 20 and 1,000 C. Due to networks of the brittle {xi}-silicide phase, the HIPed state showed no ductility at 20 C. Break-down of the silicide network during rolling led to an improved ductility at 20 C. After post rolling annealing, the yield strengths at 20 and 700 C were between 750--490 MPa and 700--420 MPa for specimens taken parallel and perpendicular to the rolling direction, respectively. These values are considerably higher than those reported for {gamma}-TiAl sheets. At 1,000 C the sheet material could be superplastically deformed.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Cellulose nanocrystal (CNC) aerogels are coated with thin conformal layers of Al2O3 using atomic layer deposition to form hybrid organic/inorganic nanocomposites. Electron probe microanalysis and scanning electron microscopy analysis indicated the Al2O3 penetrated more than 1500??m into the aerogel for extended precursor pulse and exposure/purge times. The measured profile of coated fiber radius versus depth from the aerogel surface agrees well with simulations of precursor penetration depth in modeled aerogel structures. Thermogravimetric analysis shows that Al2O3 coated CNC aerogel nanocomposites do not show significant thermal degradation below 295?C as compared with 175?C for uncoated CNC aerogels an improvement of over 100?C.

Nanolayered CrAlTiN and multilayered CrAlTiNAlTiN coatings for solid particle erosion protection  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Applying hard coatings on airfoil surfaces is proven to be an effective approach to mitigating erosion damage to engine components. Nanolayered or multilayered coatings, because of their capability of tailoring hardness and toughness through modifications in the chemistry and architecture of layer constituents, have been explored as potential candidates for this specific application. In this study, nanolayered CrAlTiN (CrN/AlTiN) coatings with different modulation periods, along with multilayered CrAlTiNAlTiN coatings having different number of layers and different thickness of individual layers, were fabricated, characterized and evaluated. All the coatings significantly outperformed the CrN baseline in erosion resistance, and their performance was strongly affected by the bilayer period of the nanolayered coatings or the layer architectural characteristics of multilayered coatings.

A NEW GUI FOR GLOBAL ORBIT CORRECTION AT THE ALS USING MATLAB  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Orbit correction is a vital procedure at particle accelerators around the world. The orbit correction routine currently used at the Advanced Light Source (ALS) is a bit cumbersome and a new Graphical User Interface (GUI) has been developed using MATLAB. The correction algorithm uses a singular value decomposition method for calculating the required corrector magnet changes for correcting the orbit. The application has been successfully tested at the ALS. The GUI display provided important information regarding the orbit including the orbit errors before and after correction, the amount of corrector magnet strength change, and the standard deviation of the orbit error with respect to the number of singular values used. The use of more singular values resulted in better correction of the orbit error but at the expense of enormous corrector magnet strength changes. The results showed an inverse relationship between the peak-to-peak values of the orbit error and the number of singular values used. The GUI interface helps the ALS physicists and operators understand the specifi c behavior of the orbit. The application is convenient to use and is a substantial improvement over the previous orbit correction routine in terms of user friendliness and compactness.

Corrosion performance of Fe-Cr-Al and Fe aluminide alloys in complex gas environments  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Alumina-forming structural alloys can offer superior resistance to corrosion in the presence of sulfur-containing environments, which are prevalent in coal-fired fossil energy systems. Further, Fe aluminides are being developed for use as structural materials and/or cladding alloys in these systems. Extensive development has been in progress on Fe{sub 3}Al-based alloys to improve their engineering ductility. In addition, surface coatings of Fe aluminide are being developed to impart corrosion resistance to structural alloys. This paper describes results from an ongoing program that is evaluating the corrosion performance of alumina-forming structural alloys, Fe-Al and Fe aluminide bulk alloys, and Fe aluminide coatings in environments typical of coal-gasification and combustion atmospheres. Experiments were conducted at 650-1000{degrees}C in simulated oxygen/sulfur gas mixtures. Other aspects of the program are corrosion evaluation of the aluminides in the presence of HCl-containing gases. Results are used to establish threshold Al levels in the alloys for development of protective alumina scales and to determine the modes of corrosion degradation that occur in the materials when they are exposed to S/Cl-containing gaseous environments.

The formation of a new type of ordered 2D Ni3Al overlayer by low-temperature codeposition on NiAl(110) is demonstrated by kinetic Monte Carlo simulation of a multisite atomistic lattice-gas model with a precise treatment of surface diffusion kinetics. Simultaneous codeposition with 3?1 Ni?Al yields poor ordering at 300 K but well-ordered structures by ?500??K. Sequential codeposition of Ni then Al yields unmixed core-ring nanostructures at 300 K but strong intermixing and ordering by ?500??K.

Hydrogen production by methane steam reforming over Ru supported on NiMgAl mixed oxides prepared via hydrotalcite route  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Catalytic performance of Ru/NixMg6?xAl2 800800 mixed oxides, with x=2, 4 and 6, x being the molar ratio, towards Methane Steam Reforming, was studied. NixMg6?xAl2 800 oxide, used as support, was prepared via hydrotalcite route. It was thermally stabilized at 800C, impregnated with 0.5wt.% ruthenium using ruthenium (III) nitrosyl nitrate Ru(NO) (NO3)3 precursor and then calcined again at 800C under an air flow. Ruthenium impregnation significantly enhanced the reactivity of the oxides in Methane Steam Reforming. In fact, it was found, that even with a low ruthenium content (0.5wt.%), ruthenium oxide particles are formed but are well dispersed over the surface of the oxide NixMg6?xAl2 800. Ru/Ni6Al2 800800 showed better catalytic performances, towards Methane Steam Reforming, than ruthenium impregnated on the two other supports. Indeed, nickel content is higher in Ni6Al2 800 than in the other studied supports and therefore the probability of NiRu interaction should be greater and consequently catalytic performances could be improved.

The wetting behavior of NiAl and NiPtAl on polycrystalline alumina  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In order to understand the beneficial effect of Pt on the adherence of thermally grown alumina scales, sessile drop experiments were performed to study the wetting of poly-crystalline alumina by nickel-aluminum alloys with or without platinum addition where the amount of Pt ranged from 2.4 to 10 at.%. Subsequent interfacial structure was evaluated using atomic force microscopy. Platinum addition enhances the wettability of NiAl alloys on alumina, reduces the oxide/alloy interface energy and increases the interfacial mass transport rates.

Examining exotic structure of proton-rich nucleus $^{23}$Al  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The longitudinal momentum distribution (P_{//}) of fragments after one-proton removal from ^{23} Al and reaction cross sections (\\sigma_R) for ^{23,24} Al on carbon target at 74A MeV have been measured. The ^{23,24} Al ions were produced through projectile fragmentation of 135 A MeV ^{28} Si primary beam using RIPS fragment separator at RIKEN. P_{//} is measured by a direct time-of-flight (TOF) technique, while \\sigma_R is determined using a transmission method. An enhancement in \\sigma_R is observed for ^{23} Al compared with ^{24} Al. The P_{//} for ^{22} Mg fragments from ^{23} Al breakup has been obtained for the first time. FWHM of the distributions has been determined to be 232 \\pm 28 MeV/c. The experimental data are discussed by using Few-Body Glauber model. Analysis of P_{//} demonstrates a dominant d-wave configuration for the valence proton in ground state of ^{23} Al, indicating that ^{23} Al is not a proton halo nucleus.

Solidification, growth mechanisms, and associated properties of Al-Si and magnesium lightweight casting alloys  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Continually rising energy prices have inspired increased interest in weight reduction in the automotive and aerospace industries, opening the door for the widespread use and development of lightweight structural materials. Chief among these materials are cast Al-Si and magnesium-based alloys. Utilization of Al-Si alloys depends on obtaining a modified fibrous microstructure in lieu of the intrinsic flake structure, a process which is incompletely understood. The local solidification conditions, mechanisms, and tensile properties associated with the flake to fiber growth mode transition in Al-Si eutectic alloys are investigated here using bridgman type gradient-zone directional solidification. Resulting microstructures are examined through quantitative image analysis of two-dimensional sections and observation of deep-etched sections showing three-dimensional microstructural features. The transition was found to occur in two stages: an initial stage dominated by in-plane plate breakup and rod formation within the plane of the plate, and a second stage where the onset of out-of-plane silicon rod growth leads to the formation of an irregular fibrous structure. Several microstructural parameters were investigated in an attempt to quantify this transition, and it was found that the particle aspect ratio is effective in objectively identifying the onset and completion velocity of the flake to fiber transition. The appearance of intricate out-of-plane silicon instability formations was investigated by adapting a perturbed-interface stability analysis to the Al-Si system. Measurements of silicon equilibrium shape particles provided an estimate of the anisotropy of the solid Si/liquid Al-Si system and incorporation of this silicon anisotropy into the model was found to improve prediction of the instability length scale. Magnesium alloys share many of the benefits of Al-Si alloys, with the added benefit of a 1/3 lower density and increased machinability. Magnesium castings often contain additions of heavier elements, such as zinc, zirconium, and rare earth elements, which significantly improve high temperature performance. However, additions of these elements can lead to macrosegregational effects in castings, which are detectable by radiographic scans. The effect of these flow-line indications on alloy mechanical properties is not well quantified. An examination of these flow-line indications and their effects on mechanical properties in three magnesium-based casting alloys was performed here in order to determine the best practice for dealing with affected castings. Preliminary results suggest the flow-lines do not measurably impact bulk material properties. Three additional methods of characterizing three-dimensional material structures are also presented: a minimum spanning tree analysis is utilized to quantify local structure in Cu-Zr liquid phase simulations obtained from molecular dynamics; the radial distribution function is applied to directionally solidified Al-Si structures in an attempt to extract local spacing data; and the critical diameter measurement is also defined and applied to irregular eutectic Al-Si structures.

Effect of heat treatment on microstructure and interface of SiC particle reinforced 2124 Al matrix composite  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The microstructure and interface between metal matrix and ceramic reinforcement of a composite play an important role in improving its properties. In the present investigation, the interface and intermetallic compound present in the samples were characterized to understand structural stability at an elevated temperature. Aluminum based 2124 alloy with 10 wt.% silicon carbide (SiC) particle reinforced composite was prepared through vortex method and the solid ingot was deformed by hot rolling for better particle distribution. Heat treatment of the composite was carried out at 575 C with varying holding time from 1 to 48 h followed by water quenching. In this study, the microstructure and interface of the SiC particle reinforced Al based composites have been studied using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) coupled with energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS), electron probe micro-analyzer (EPMA) associated with wavelength dispersive spectroscopy (WDS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to identify the precipitate and intermetallic phases that are formed during heat treatment. The SiC particles are uniformly distributed in the aluminum matrix. The microstructure analyses of AlSiC composite after heat treatment reveal that a wide range of dispersed phases are formed at grain boundary and surrounding the SiC particles. The energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and wavelength dispersive spectroscopy analyses confirm that finely dispersed phases are CuAl{sub 2} and CuMgAl{sub 2} intermetallic and large spherical phases are Fe{sub 2}SiAl{sub 8} or Al{sub 15}(Fe,Mn){sub 3}Si. It is also observed that a continuous layer enriched with Cu and Mg of thickness 5080 nm is formed at the interface in between Al and SiC particles. EDS analysis also confirms that Cu and Mg are segregated at the interface of the composite while no carbide is identified at the interface. - Highlights: The composite was successfully heat treated at 575C for 1-48 hrs. A layer of 50-75 nm is formed at interface after heat treatment. No Carbide formation and SiC dissolution is observed at this temperature. MgAl{sub 2}O{sub 4}, CuMgAl{sub 2} phases are segregated at interface of Al-SiC composite. Mg and Cu are also segregated at near to the grain boundary.

Photovoltaic concentrator module improvements study  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report presents results of a project to design and fabricate an improved photovoltaic concentrator module. Using previous work as a baseline, this study conducted analyses and testing to select major module components and design features. The lens parquet and concentrator solar cell were selected from the highest performing, available components. A single 185X point-focus module was fabricated by the project team and tested at Sandia. Major module characteristics include a 6 by 4 compression-molded acrylic lens parquet (0.737 m{sup 2} area), twenty-four 0.2 ohms-cm, FZ, p-Si solar cells (1.56 cm{sup 2} area) soldered to ceramic substrates and copper heat spreaders, and an aluminized steel housing with corrugated bottom. This project marked the first attempt to use prismatic covers on solar cells in a high-concentration, point-focus application. Cells with 15 percent metallization were obtained, but problems with the fabrication and placement of prismatic covers on these cells lead to the decision not to use covers in the prototype module. Cell assembly fabrication, module fabrication, and module optical design activities are presented here. Test results are also presented for bare cells, cell assemblies, and module. At operating conditions of 981 watts/m{sup 2} DNI and an estimated cell temperature of 65{degrees}C, the module demonstrated an efficiency of 13.9 percent prior to stressed environmental exposure. 12 refs., 56 figs., 7 tabs.

Improving pulverized coal plant performance  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A major deliverable of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) project ``Engineering Development of Advanced Coal-Fired Low-Emissions Boiler Systems`` (LEBS) is the design of a large, in this case 400 MWe, commercial generating unit (CGU) which will meet the Project objectives. The overall objective of the LEBS Project is to dramatically improve environmental performance of future pulverized coal fired power plants without adversely impacting efficiency or the cost of electricity. The DOE specified the use of near-term technologies, i.e., advanced technologies that partially developed, to reduce NO{sub x}, SO{sub 2} and particulate emissions to be substantially less than current NSPS limits. In addition, air toxics must be in compliance and waste must be reduced and made more disposable. The design being developed by the ABB Team is projected to meet all the contract objectives and to reduce emission of NO{sub x}, SO{sub 2} and particulates to one-fifth to one-tenth NSPS limits while increasing net station efficiency significantly and reducing the cost of electricity. This design and future work are described in the paper.

Method to improve superconductor cable  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A method is disclosed of making a stranded superconductor cable having improved flexing and bending characteristics. In such method, a plurality of superconductor strands are helically wound around a cylindrical portion of a mandrel which tapers along a transitional portion to a flat end portion. The helically wound strands form a multistrand hollow cable which is partially flattened by pressure rollers as the cable travels along the transitional portion. The partially flattened cable is impacted with repeated hammer blows as the hollow cable travels along the flat end portion. The hammer blows flatten both the internal and the external surfaces of the strands. The cable is fully flattened and compacted by two sets of pressure rollers which engage the flat sides and the edges of the cable after it has traveled away from the flat end portion of the mandrel. The flattened internal surfaces slide easily over one another when the cable is flexed or bent so that there is very little possibility that the cable will be damaged by the necessary flexing and bending required to wind the cable into magnet coils.

The influence of Mn,S and B contents on microstructural characteristics, mechanical properties and hydrogen trapping ability of low-carbon Al-killed enamel steel was investigated. The materials were produced and processed in a laboratory and the ultra-fast continuous annealing processing was performed using a continuous annealing simulator. It was found that increasing Mn,S contents in steel can improve its hydrogen trapping ability which is attributed by refined ferrite grains, more dispersed cementite and added MnS inclusions. Nevertheless, it deteriorates mechanical properties of steel sheet. Addition of trace boron results in both good mechanical properties and significantly improved hydrogen trapping ability. The boron combined with nitrogen segregating at grain boundaries, cementite and MnS inclusions, provides higher amount of attractive hydrogen trapping sites and raises the activation energy for hydrogen desorption from them. - Highlights: We study microstructures and properties in low-carbon Al-killed enamel steel. Hydrogen diffusion coefficients are measured to reflect fish-scale resistance. Manganese improves hydrogen trapping ability but decrease deep-drawing ability. Boron improves both hydrogen trapping ability and deep-drawing ability. Both excellent mechanical properties and fish-scale resistance can be matched.

Energy relaxation of hot electrons in lattice-matched AlInN/AlN/GaN heterostructures  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Using the dielectric continuum model, hot-electron power dissipation and energy relaxation times are calculated for a typical lattice-matched AlInN/AlN/GaN heterostructure, including effects of hot phonons and screening from the mobile electrons. The calculated power dissipation and energy relaxation times are very close to the experimental data.

Improving oxidation resistance and fracture strength of MgOC refractory material through precursor coating  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract An Al precursor was coated onto the surface of graphite in a MgOC refractory material to improve the oxidation resistance and the fracture strength by controlling the amount of antioxidant and the coating thickness. To enhance the coating efficiency, the surface of the graphite used as the carbon source was treated with an acid. In oxidation tests, the Al-coated graphite showed a smaller weight loss than the pristine graphite. The MgOC refractory material with the Al-coated graphite showed a similar fracture strength to that with commercial graphite, despite the use of a smaller amount of antioxidant. The highest fracture strength of the MgOC refractory material was about 17MPa; it was obtained with the Al-coated graphite. The increase in fracture strength was a result of the homogeneos coating of Al precursor in the modified MgO-C refractory material. Based on the properties observed, we discuss the relationship between fracture strength and process parameters.

Investigating the nanostructure and thermal properties of chiral poly(amide-imide)/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} compatibilized with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Graphical abstract: - Highlights: Chiral polymer with different functional groups was prepared in green route. The surface of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-NPs was treated by KH550 as a silane coupling agent. NCs of poly(amide-imide) and Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} were synthesized by ultrasonic irradiation. TEM results show good dispersion of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}-NPs in the poly(amide-imide) matrix. The thermal and mechanical properties of the hybrid materials were improved. - Abstract: Novel chiral poly(amide-imide) (PAI)/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanocomposites were prepared via incorporating surface modified Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanoparticles into polymer matrices for the first time. In the process of preparing the nanocomposites, severe aggregation of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanoparticles could be reduced by surface modification and ?-aminopropyltriethoxysilane. The optically active PAI chains were formed from the polycondensation reaction of N,N?-(pyromellitoyl)-bis-phenylalanine diacid with 2-(3,5-diaminophenyl)-benzimidazole in green condition. The obtained polymer and inorganic metal oxide nanoparticles were used to prepare chiral PAI/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} nanocomposites through ultrasonic irradiation. The resulting nanoparticle filled composites were also characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, field emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) techniques. TGA thermographs confirmed that the heat stability of the prepared nanoparticle-reinforced composites was improved. Mechanical properties showed that the film containing 10 wt% of modified Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} had a tensile strength of the order of 83.6 MPa, relative to the 64.3 MPa of the pure PAI.

Methotrexate intercalated ZnAl-layered double hydroxide  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The anticancerous drug methotrexate (MTX) has been intercalated into an ZnAl-layered double hydroxide (LDH) using an anion exchange technique to produce LDH-MTX hybrids having particle sizes in the range of 100-300 nm. X-ray diffraction studies revealed increases in the basal spacings of ZnAl-LDH-MTX hybrid on MTX intercalation. This was corroborated by the transmission electron micrographs, which showed an increase in average interlayer spacing from 8.9 A in pristine LDH to 21.3 A in LDH-MTX hybrid. Thermogravimetric analyses showed an increase in the decomposition temperature for the MTX molecule in the LDH-MTX hybrid indicating enhanced thermal stability of the drug molecule in the LDH nanovehicle. The cumulative release profile of MTX from ZnAl-LDH-MTX hybrids in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) at pH 7.4 was successfully sustained for 48 h following Rigter-Peppas model release kinetics via diffusion. - Graphical abstract: ZnAl-layered double hydroxide intercalated with methotrexate ({approx}34% loading) promises the possibility of use of ZnAl-LDH material as drug carrier and in controlled delivery. Highlights: > ZnAl-layered double hydroxide methotrexate nanohybrid has been synthesized. > XRD and TEM studies on nanohybrid revealed successful intercalation of methotrexate. > TG and CHN analyses showed {approx}34 wt% of methotrexate loading into the nanohybrid. > Possibility of use of ZnAl-LDH material as drug carrier and in delivery.

Development of improved performance refractory liner materials for slagging gasifiers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Refractory liners for slagging gasifiers used in power generation, chemical production, or as a possible future source of hydrogen for a hydrogen based economy, suffer from a short service life. These liner materials are made of high Cr2O3 and lower levels of Al2O3 and/or ZrO2. As a working face lining in the gasifier, refractories are exposed to molten slags at elevated temperature that originate from ash in the carbon feedstock, including coal and/or petroleum coke. The molten slag causes refractory failure by corrosion dissolution and by spalling. The Albany Research Center is working to improve the performance of Cr2O3 refractories and to develop refractories without Cr2O3 or with Cr2O3 content under 30 wt pct. Research on high Cr2O3 materials has resulted in an improved refractory with phosphate additions that is undergoing field testing. Results to date of field trials, along with research direction on refractories with no or low Cr2O3, will be discussed.

Phase transformations, heat evolution, and atomic diffusion during slow heating of Al-rich Al/Zr multilayered foils  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We describe the energy and sequence of phase transformations in multilayered Al/Zr foils with atomic ratios of 3 Al:1 Zr during low temperature (<350?C) heat treatments in a differential scanning calorimeter. The initial phase formed is an Al-rich amorphous phase that appears to grow by Zr diffusion through the amorphous phase. The subsequent nucleation and growth of tetragonal Al{sub 3}Zr along the Al/amorphous layer interface is mediated by Al diffusion through the crystalline intermetallic phase. Diffusion coefficients associated with these processes are higher than expected from reports of diffusivities measured at higher temperatures. The inferred heat of formation of the tetragonal Al{sub 3}Zr phase is 1240??40?J/g (53??2?kJ/mol atom). No anomalous variation in the energy or sequence of phase transformations is found with bilayer thickness for samples with bilayer thickness in the range of 17?nm to 90?nm despite anomalies in the bilayer dependence of self-propagating reaction velocities in the same foils.
