Results from Evaluation of Proposed ASME AG-1 Section FI Metal Media Filters - 13063  

SciTech Connect

High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filtration technology is commonly used in Department of Energy (DOE) facilities that require control of radioactive particulate matter (PM) emissions due to treatment or management of radioactive materials. Although HEPA technology typically makes use of glass fiber media, metal and ceramic media filters are also capable of filtering efficiencies beyond the required 99.97%. Sintered metal fiber filters are good candidates for use in DOE facilities due to their resistance to corrosive environments and resilience at high temperature and elevated levels of relative humidity. Their strength can protect them from high differential pressure or pressure spikes and allow for back pulse cleaning, extending filter lifetime. Use of these filters has the potential to reduce the cost of filtration in DOE facilities due to life cycle cost savings. ASME AG-1 section FI has not been approved due to a lack of protocols and performance criteria for qualifying section FI filters. The Institute for Clean Energy Technology (ICET) with the aid of the FI project team has developed a Section FI test stand and test plan capable of assisting in the qualification ASME AG-1 section FI filters. Testing done at ICET using the FI test stand evaluates resistance to rated air flow, test aerosol penetration and resistance to heated air of the section FI filters. Data collected during this testing consists of temperature, relative humidity, differential pressure, flow rate, upstream particle concentration, and downstream particle concentration. (authors)

Towards a temporal network analysis of interactive WiFi users  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Complex networks are used to depict topological features of complex systems. The structure of a network characterizes the interactions among elements of the system, and facilitates the study of many dynamical processes taking place on it. In previous investigations, the topological infrastructure underlying dynamical systems is simplified as a static and invariable skeleton. However, this assumption cannot cover the temporal features of many time-evolution networks, whose components are evolving and mutating. In this letter, utilizing the log data of WiFi users in a Chinese university campus, we infuse the temporal dimension into the construction of dynamical human contact network. By quantitative comparison with the traditional aggregation approach, we find that the temporal contact network differs in many features, e.g., the reachability, the path length distribution. We conclude that the correlation between temporal path length and duration is not only determined by their definitions, but also influenced b...

DEVELOPMENT OF AG-1 SECTION FI ON METAL MEDIA FILTERS - 9061  

SciTech Connect

Development of a metal media standard (FI) for ASME AG-1 (Code on Nuclear Air and Gas Treatment) has been under way for almost ten years. This paper will provide a brief history of the development process of this section and a detailed overview of its current content/status. There have been at least two points when dramatic changes have been made in the scope of the document due to feedback from the full Committee on Nuclear Air and Gas Treatment (CONAGT). Development of the proposed section has required resolving several difficult issues associated with scope; namely, filtering efficiency, operating conditions (media velocity, pressure drop, etc.), qualification testing, and quality control/acceptance testing. A proposed version of Section FI is currently undergoing final revisions prior to being submitted for balloting. The section covers metal media filters of filtering efficiencies ranging from medium (less than 99.97%) to high (99.97% and greater). Two different types of high efficiency filters are addressed; those units intended to be a direct replacement of Section FC fibrous glass HEPA filters and those that will be placed into newly designed systems capable of supporting greater static pressures and differential pressures across the filter elements. Direct replacements of FC HEPA filters in existing systems will be required to meet equivalent qualification and testing requirements to those contained in Section FC. A series of qualification and quality assurance test methods have been identified for the range of filtering efficiencies covered by this proposed standard. Performance characteristics of sintered metal powder vs. sintered metal fiber media are dramatically different with respect to parameters like differential pressures and rigidity of the media. Wide latitude will be allowed for owner specification of performance criteria for filtration units that will be placed into newly designed systems. Such allowances will permit use of the most appropriate metal media for a system as specified by the owner with respect to material of manufacture, media velocity, system maximum static pressure, maximum differential pressure across the filter, and similar parameters.

Optimal design of a robust discrete parallel FP+FI+FD controller for the Automatic Voltage Regulator system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The purpose of this paper is to design a good tracking controller for the generator Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) system. A fuzzy logic-based controller that is called Fuzzy P+Fuzzy I+Fuzzy D (FP+FI+FD) controller has been designed optimally and applied to AVR system. In the proposed method, optimal tuning of controller parameters is very important to achieve the desired level of robust performance. Thus, a hybrid of Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) (HGAPSO) technique has been used to find a better fuzzy system control. The motivation for using this hybrid method is to increase disturbance rejection effort, reduce fuzzy system efforts and take large parametric uncertainties into account. The developed FP+FI+FD control strategy leads to a flexible controller with simple structure that is easy to implement. The simulation results have been compared with the conventional ProportionalIntegralDerivative (PID) and fuzzy PID controllers. Three cases of simulation have been performed, case 1: comparing the tracking capability of the controllers, case 2: comparing the disturbance rejection capability of the controller and case 3: evaluating the performance of the controllers assuming that amplifier and exciter system parameters have 50% uncertainty. The simulation results shows that the proposed parallel FP+FI+FD controller has good performance from the perspective of overshoot/undershoot, settling time, and rise time in comparison with both conventional and fuzzy PID controllers.

Homoleptic Ce(III) and Ce(IV) Nitroxide Complexes: Significant Stabilization of the 4+ Oxidation State  

SciTech Connect

Electrochemical experiments performed on the complex Ce-IV[2-((BuNO)-Bu-t)py](4), where [2-((BuNO)-Bu-t)py](-) = N-tert-butyl-N-2-pyridylnitroxide, indicate a 2.51 V stabilization of the 4+ oxidation state of Ce compared to [(Bu4N)-Bu-n](2)[Ce(NO3)(6)] in acetonitrile and a 2.95 V stabilization compared to the standard potential for the ion under aqueous conditions. Density functional theory calculations suggest that this preference for the higher oxidation state is a result of the tetrakis(nitroxide) ligand framework at the Ce cation, which allows for effective electron donation into, and partial covalent overlap with, vacant 4f orbitals with delta symmetry. The results speak to the behavior of CeO2 and related solid solutions in oxygen uptake and transport applications, in particular an inherent local character of bonding that stabilizes the 4+ oxidation state. The results indicate a cerium(IV) complex that has been stabilized to an unprecedented degree through tuning of its ligand-field environment.

Six years of ABB-CE, petcoke and fluid beds  

SciTech Connect

Combustion Engineering, Inc. (ABB-CE) has constructed twenty circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boilers and 2 bubbling fluidized bed (BFB) boilers throughout North America. The units were designed to fire a wide range of fuels from anthracite culm to coals, lignites and biomasses. Based on fuels economics, some plants have decided to use petroleum coke as a replacement or supplemental fuel. The fluid bed boiler can inherently handle a wide range of fuel types without requiring modification or down-rating. ABB-CE units have a significant amount of petroleum coke operating experience firing 100% petroleum coke with no supplemental fuel ranging from the first commercial CFB unit at New Brunswick Power to the largest CFB unit at Texas New Mexico Power. Petroleum coke is also being co-fired with anthracite culm at the Scott Paper CFB. The world`s largest operating BFB, the 160 MWe unit at TVA`s Shawnee plant, has also been co-firing petroleum coke. The ability of the fluidized bed technology to fire low volatile fuels such as petroleum cokes, efficiently and in an environmentally acceptable manner will result in the use of this technology as a preferred means of power generation. This report gives a brief description of the petroleum coke firing experiences with ABB-CE fluid bed steam generators over the last six years.

METAL MEDIA FILTERS, AG-1 SECTION FI  

SciTech Connect

One application of metal media filters is in various nuclear air cleaning processes including applications for protecting workers, the public and the environment from hazardous and radioactive particles. To support this application the development of the ASME AG-1 FI Standard on Metal Media has been under way for more than ten years. Development of the proposed section has required resolving several difficult issues associated with operating conditions (media velocity, pressure drop, etc.), qualification testing, and quality acceptance testing. Performance characteristics of metal media are dramatically different than the glass fiber media with respect to parameters like differential pressures, operating temperatures, media strength, etc. These differences make existing data for a glass fiber media inadequate for qualifying a metal media filter for AG-1. In the past much work has been conducted on metal media filters at facilities such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) to qualify the media as High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters. Particle retention testing has been conducted at Oak Ridge Filter Test Facility and at Air Techniques International (ATI) to prove that the metal media meets or exceeds the 99.97% particle retention required for a HEPA Filter. Even with his testing, data was lacking to complete an AG-1 FI Standard on metal media. With funding secured by Mississippi State University (MSU) from National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), a research test stand is being designed and fabricated at MSU's Institute for Clean Energy Technology (ICET) Facility to obtain qualification data on metal media. This in turn will support required data needed for the FI Standard. The paper will discuss in detail how the test stand at MSU will obtain the necessary data to complete the FI Standard.

The Complex Core Level Spectra of CeO2: An Analysis in Terms of Atomic and Charge Transfer Effects  

SciTech Connect

We present a rigorous parameter-free theoretical treatment of the Ce 4s and 5s photoelectron spectra of CeO2. In the currently accepted model the satellite structure in the photoelectron spectra is explained in terms of a mixed valence (Ce 4f0 O 2p6, Ce 4f1 O 2p5, and Ce 4f2 O 2p4) con?guration. We show that charge transfer (CT) into Ce 5d as well as con?gurations involving intra-atomic movement of charge must be considered in addition and compute their contributions to the spectra.

Interaction of carbon monoxide with oxygen in the adsorbed layer on Pd, Ce, Pd-Ce catalysts supported on /gamma/-Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/  

SciTech Connect

The adsorption of CO and the interaction of CO/sub ads/ with O/sub 2/ on Pd, Ce, and Pd-Ce//gamma/-Al/sub 2/O/sub 3/ (0.5 wt. % Pd, 2.0 wt. % Ce) has been studied using the methods of IR spectroscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. The identity of the adsorbed CO complexes, the temperature ranges over which they desorb, and their reactivity with O/sub 2/ have been established. The interaction of bridging and carbonate - carboxylate CO complexes and carbon (disproportionation and dissociation products) with O/sub 2/ on Pd and Pd-Ce catalysts is preceded by the coadsorption of oxygen and the evolution of heat. During the oxidation of CO, autooscillation, heat evolution, and the concentration of oxygen in the flow are observed.

Pressure tuning of competing magnetic interactions in intermetallic CeFe2  

SciTech Connect

We use high-pressure magnetic x-ray diffraction and numerical simulation to determine the low-temperature magnetic phase diagram of stoichiometric CeFe2. Near 1.5 GPa we find a transition from ferromagnetism to antiferromagnetism, accompanied by a rhombohedral distortion of the cubic Laves crystal lattice. By comparing pressure and chemical substitution we find that the phase transition is controlled by a shift of magnetic frustration from the Ce-Ce to the Fe-Fe sublattice. Notably the dominant Ce-Fe magnetic interaction, which sets the temperature scale for the onset of long-range order, remains satisfied throughout the phase diagram but does not determine the magnetic ground state. Our results illustrate the complexity of a system with multiple competing magnetic energy scales and lead to a general model for magnetism in cubic Laves phase intermetallic compounds.

X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Studies of Oxidized and Reduced CeO?(111) Surfaces  

SciTech Connect

We have studied the electronic structure of oxidized and reduced CeO? (111) surfaces using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The 50 nm thick Co?(111) film was grown on a YSZ(111) substrate using oxygen plasma assisted molecular beam epitaxy (OPA-MBE). This film has been characterized using in-situ RHEED (reflection high energy electron diffraction) and ex-situ XRD (X-ray diffraction), HRTEM (high resolution transmission electron microscopy) and RBS (Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy). The lattice mismatch between CeO?(111) and YSZ(111) is less than 5% and yields a flat surface that is comprised of an equivalent number of Ce?? and O?? ions. Oxidation with O? at 773 K under UHV conditions was sufficient to fully oxidize the CeO?(111). Surface reduction was carried out by annealing in UHV at 973 K.

Structure and Reactivity of Alkyl Ethers Adsorbed on CeO2(111) Model Catalysts  

SciTech Connect

The effect of surface hydroxyls on the adsorption of ether on ceria was explored. Adsorption of dimethyl ether (DME) and diethyl ether (DEE) on oxidized and reduced CeO{sub 2}(111) films was studied and compared with Ru(0001) using RAIRS and sXPS within a UHV environment. On Ru(0001) the ethers adsorb weakly with the molecular plane close to parallel to the surface plane. On the ceria films, the adsorption of the ethers was stronger than on the metal surface, presumably due to stronger interaction of the ether oxygen lone pair electrons with a cerium cation. This interaction causes the ethers to tilt away from the surface plane compared to the Ru(0001) surface. No pronounced differences were found between oxidized (CeO{sub 2}) and reduced (CeOx) films. The adsorption of the ethers was found to be perturbed by the presence of OH groups on hydroxylated CeOx. In the case of DEE, the geometry of adsorption resembles that found on Ru, and in the case of dimethyl ether DME is in between that one found on clean CeOx and the metal surface. Decomposition of the DEE was observed on the OH/CeOx surface following high DEE exposure at 300 K and higher temperatures. Ethoxides and acetates were identified as adsorbed species on the surface by means of RAIRS and ethoxides and formates by s-XPS. No decomposition of dimethyl ether was observed on the OH/CeOx at these higher temperatures, implying that the dissociation of the C-O bond from ethers requires the presence of {beta}-hydrogen.

Neutron detection properties of Li6Y(BO3)3:Ce crystal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Li6Y(BO3)3:Ce crystal is a promising type of scintillator for neutron detection. In this study, the properties of Li6Y(BO3)3:3at%Ce are studied, including its ? sensitivity, neutron efficiency, ?/? ratio, relative light yield, neutron pulse-height spectrum and decay time. Geant4 simulations indicate that its capture efficiency for thermal neutrons is as high as 78% for the natural abundances of the boron and lithium elements. The ?/? ratio of Li6Y(BO3)3:Ce is measured to be 0.03, which is 10 times lower than that of lithium glass. If the per-MeV light yield of lithium glass is defined to be 100, then the light yields generated by Li6Y(BO3)3:Ce for ? rays and ? particles are 253.3 and 24.8, respectively. Under ?-ray irradiation, the light yield of Li6Y(BO3)3:Ce is approximately 6 times lower than that of NaI:Tl. In neutron detection, the neutron signal can be clearly distinguished from the backgrounds caused by the 252Cf source itself. Li6Y(BO3)3:Ce is also a fast scintillator, with decay times of 48.614.4ns, 24.613.3ns and 37.817.8ns under irradiation with ? rays, ? particles and thermal neutrons, respectively. This study offers a systematic study of useful parameters of Li6Y(BO3)3:3at%Ce crystal for application in and the improvement of neutron detection.

A-GPS Assisted Wi-Fi Access Point Discovery on Mobile Devices for Energy Saving  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Mobile devices have been shipped with multiple wireless network interfaces in order to meet their diverse communication and networking demands. In this paper, we propose an A-GPS assisted scheme that discovers the nearest Wi-Fi network access points (APs) by using user's location information. This allows the user to switch to the Wi-Fi interface in an intelligent manner when she/he arrives at the nearest Wi-Fi network AP. Therefore, it avoids the long periods in idle state and greatly reduces the number of unnecessary Wi-Fi scans on the mobile device. The experimental results demonstrate that our scheme effectively saves energy for mobile devices integrated with Wi-Fi and cellular interfaces.

Mechanism of Methane Chemical Looping Combustion with Hematite Promoted with CeO2  

SciTech Connect

Chemical looping combustion (CLC) is a promising technology for fossil fuel combustion that produces sequestration-ready CO{sub 2} stream, reducing the energy penalty of CO{sub 2} separation from flue gases. An effective oxygen carrier for CLC will readily react with the fuel gas and will be reoxidized upon contact with oxygen. This study investigated the development of a CeO{sub 2}-promoted Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}?hematite oxygen carrier suitable for the methane CLC process. Composition of CeO{sub 2} is between 5 and 25 wt % and is lower than what is generally used for supports in Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} carrier preparations. The incorporation of CeO{sub 2} to the natural ore hematite strongly modifies the reduction behavior in comparison to that of CeO{sub 2} and hematite alone. Temperature-programmed reaction studies revealed that the addition of even 5 wt % CeO{sub 2} enhances the reaction capacity of the Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} oxygen carrier by promoting the decomposition and partial oxidation of methane. Fixed-bed reactor data showed that the 5 wt % cerium oxides with 95 wt % iron oxide produce 2 times as much carbon dioxide in comparison to the sum of carbon dioxide produced when the oxides were tested separately. This effect is likely due to the reaction of CeO{sub 2} with methane forming intermediates, which are reactive for extracting oxygen from Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} at a considerably faster rate than the rate of the direct reaction of Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} with methane. These studies reveal that 5 wt % CeO{sub 2}/Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} gives stable conversions over 15 reduction/oxidation cycles. Lab-scale reactor studies (pulsed mode) suggest the methane reacts initially with CeO{sub 2} lattice oxygen to form partial oxidation products (CO + H{sub 2}), which continue to react with oxygen from neighboring Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}, leading to its complete oxidation to form CO{sub 2}. The reduced cerium oxide promotes the methane decomposition reaction to form C + H{sub 2}, which continue to react with Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3}/Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} to form CO/CO{sub 2} and H{sub 2}O. This mechanism is supported by the characterization studies, which also suggest that the formation of carbonaceous intermediates may affect the reaction rate and selectivity of the oxygen carrier.

Adsorption and Reaction of Acetaldehyde over CeOx(111) Thin Films  

SciTech Connect

This study reports the interaction of acetaldehyde with well-ordered CeO{sub X}(111) thin film surfaces. The fully oxidized CeO{sub 2}(111) surface shows a weak interaction with acetaldehyde with the sole desorption product (TPD) being the parent molecule at 210 K. The chemisorbed molecule binds to the surface as the {eta}{sub 1}-acetaldehyde species rather than through a bridge-bonded dioxy configuration. Acetaldehyde chemisorbs strongly on reduced CeO{sub 2-X}(111) with nonrecombinative and recombinative acetaldehyde desorbing at 405 and 550-600 K, respectively. Deoxygenation and dehydration also occur, producing ethylene and acetylene at 580 and 620 K, respectively. Acetaldehyde initially adsorbs in the {eta}{sub 1} configuration and then converts to a carbanion species with both C {double_bond} C and C {double_bond} O bond character above 300 K.

Comparative Study on Redox Properties of Nanosized CeO2 and CuO/Ce2 Under CO/O2  

SciTech Connect

Nanosized CeO{sub 2} and CuO/CeO{sub 2} samples, active for CO-PROX or related processes were comparatively examined by O{sub 2} probe electron paramagnetic resonance and in situ Raman and X-ray diffraction techniques. Their behavior toward CO reduction, as well as the oxygen-handling properties of the CO-reduced samples, was explored. An appreciable reduction of the ceria bulk was detected on treatment under CO at 473 K. On the basis of the analysis of the evolution of different oxygen-derived species (superoxide, peroxide, O-) on low-temperature (77-300 K) oxygen chemisorption on the CO-reduced samples, a general picture of the redox properties of the samples is presented. Results demonstrate that the presence of copper promotes completion of the redox cycle under CO/O{sub 2} by favoring both ceria reduction and oxidation. This can be relevant to explaining the remarkable oxidation activity and synergetic effects observed for catalysts combining CuO and CeO{sub 2}.

Enhancing the efficiency of solar cells by down shifting YAG: Ce3+ phosphors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Ce3+-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG:Ce3+) is a luminescent down shifting material, and can convert ultraviolet (UV) and blue lights into yellow light. In this paper, the YAG:Ce3+ phosphors are applied on the surface of a monocrystalline silicon solar cell. Although the number of total photons after the down shifting conversion does not increase, the quantum efficiency of the solar cell in short wavelength range has been improved. The reason is that the UV and blue photons can hardly generate carriers in the depletion region of the pn junction because most of them are absorbed before getting there, while the yellow photons emitted from the YAG:Ce3+ phosphors can generate electronhole pairs in the region. Experimental results show that the down shifting phosphors have enhanced the energy conversion efficiency of the solar cell from 15.30% to 15.46%. Although the efficiency increase is small, the down-shifting phosphors provide a possible way to reduce the energy loss in the short wavelength range.

The Cu atoms embedded in ceria had an oxidation state higher than those of the cations in Cu{sub 2}O or CuO. The lattice of the Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2} systems still adopted a fluorite-type structure, but it was highly distorted with multiple cation-oxygen distances with respect to the single cation-oxygen bond distance seen in pure ceria. The doping of CeO{sub 2} with copper introduced a large strain into the oxide lattice and favored the formation of O vacancies, leading to a Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2-y} stoichiometry for our materials. Cu approached the planar geometry characteristic of Cu(II) oxides, but with a strongly perturbed local order. The chemical activities of the Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2} nanoparticles were tested using the reactions with H2 and O2 as probes. During the reduction in hydrogen, an induction time was observed and became shorter after raising the reaction temperature. The fraction of copper that could be reduced in the Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2} oxides also depended strongly on the reaction temperature. A comparison with data for the reduction of pure copper oxides indicated that the copper embedded in ceria was much more difficult to reduce. The reduction of the Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2} nanoparticles was rather reversible, without the generation of a significant amount of CuO or Cu{sub 2}O phases during reoxidation. This reversible process demonstrates the unusual structural and chemical properties of the Cu-doped ceria materials.

Influence of Electron Doping on Magnetic Order in CeRu2Al10  

SciTech Connect

The effect of electron doping by the substitution of Rh for Ru on unconventional magnetic order in CeRu2Al10 was investigated via neutron powder diffraction. In Ce(Ru1 xRhx)2Al10 with x = 0.05, 0.12, and 0.2, reorientation of the ordered moment from the c-axis as in pure CeRu2Al10 to the a-axis takes place in all samples, while the ordering vector q 0; 1; 0 remains unchanged within this concentration range. The moment reorientation is accompanied by an increase in its size by a factor of 2.4, from = 0.43 B at x = 0 to = 1.06, 1.04, and 1.02 B for x = 0.05, 0.12, and 0.2, respectively. The continuous decrease in the N el temperature T0(TN), despite an abrupt increase in , underlines the strong anisotropy in the exchange interaction in CeRu2Al10 and the fact that this anisotropy is easily suppressed by electron doping. 1.

Extreme Climate Event Trends: The Data Mining and Evaluation of the A1FI Scenario for 2000???2100  

SciTech Connect

The authors discuss the implications and resulting alterations of the hydrologic cycle as Earth climate evolves from 2000-2100. Climate simulations based on the assumptions implicit in the A1F1 scenario for the period 2000-2100 using CCSM3 are analyzed. In particular, we will assess the changes in the surface latent and sensible heat energy budget, the Indian regional water budgets including trends in the timing and duration of the Indian monsoon and the resulting impacts on mean river flow and hydroelectric power generation potential. These analyses will also be examined within the context of heat index, droughts, floods and related estimates of societal robustness and resiliency. We will interpret these new A1F1 results within the context of the previous climate simulations based on the SRES A2 and B1 scenarios forced with land cover and atmospheric CO2. Analyses of historical records in the context of the Indian Monsoon Rainfall (IMR) have suggested an evolving relation of IMR with natural climate variability caused by El Nino events. We will report on the combined effects of natural climate variability and global warming on IMR and assess the trend of extreme rain and temperature events in a warming environment.

Adsorption and Reaction of C1-C3 Alcohols over CeOx(111) Thin Films  

SciTech Connect

This study reports the interaction of methanol, ethanol, 1-propanol, and 2-propanol with well-ordered CeO{sub 2}(111) thin film surfaces. All of the alcohols adsorb at low temperature by forming alkoxy and hydroxyl species on the surface. On fully oxidized CeO{sub 2}(111), recombination occurs between some of the alkoxys and hydroxyls, resulting in alcohol desorption near 220 K. At the same temperature, some of the surface hydroxyls disproportionate to produce water and the loss of lattice O. The remaining alkoxys react above 550 K. The primary alcohols favor dehydrogenation products (aldehydes). There is a net loss of O from the system, resulting in a reduction of the ceria. The secondary alcohol, 2-propanol, undergoes primarily dehydration, producing propene with no net change in the cerium oxidation state. Reduced CeO{sub x}(111) competes with the gaseous products for available O. Little or no water is produced. The reaction selectivity for the C{sub 2} and C{sub 3} alcohols shifts toward favoring dehydration products. The loss of O from the alcohols leads to oxidation of the reduced ceria. Compared with the oxidized surface, the alkene desorption shifts to lower temperature, whereas the aldehyde desorption shifts to higher temperature. This indicates that, on the reduced surface, it is easier to break the C-O bond but more difficult to break the O-substrate bond.

Magnetization switching of rare earth orthochromite CeCrO{sub 3}  

SciTech Connect

We report the synthesis of single phase rare earth orthochromite CeCrO{sub 3} and its magnetic properties. A canted antiferromagnetic transition with thermal hysteresis at T?=?260?K is observed, and a magnetic compensation (zero magnetization) near 133?K is attributed to the antiparallel coupling between Ce{sup 3+} and Cr{sup 3+} moments. At low temperature, field induced magnetization reversal starting from 43?K for H?=?1.2 kOe reveals the spin flip driven by Zeeman energy between the net moments and the applied field. These findings may find potential uses in magnetic switching devices such as nonvolatile magnetic memory which facilitates two distinct states of magnetization.

Linear and nonlinear spectroscopy of tetravalent actinide ions in CeF{sub 4}  

SciTech Connect

This paper reports laser spectroscopy studies on the tetravalent actinide ions Bk{sup 4+} and Cf{sup 4+} doped into CeF{sub 4}. Fluorescence line narrowing (FLN) and spectral hole burning (SHB) were applied to unravel the complex 5f-state spectra that arise from inhomogeneous line broadening and the presence of two intrinsic metal ion sites. When a persistent spectral hole was burned in an inhomogeneously broadened zero phonon line of 1 metal atom % Cf{sup 4+} in CeF{sub 4}, satellite spectral holes were also observed in other inhomogeneously broadened lines of Cf{sup 4+}. In the FLN spectra of 0.1 metal atom% Bk{sup 4+} in CeF{sub 4}, a linear relation was observed between excitation laser photon energy and energies of Bk{sup 4+} emission lines. This can be understood in terms of one limit of a general model of inhomogeneous broadening, namely the limit in which there is a one-to-one correspondence between optical transition energy and local structure in a disordered system.

Luminescence Enhancement of CdTe Nanostructures in LaF3:Ce/CdTe Nanocomposites  

SciTech Connect

Radiation detection demands new scintillators with high quantum efficiency, high energy resolution and short luminescence lifetimes. Nanocomposites consisting of quantum dots and Ce3+ doped nanophosphors may be able to meet these requirements. Here we report the luminescence of LaF3:Ce/CdTe nanocomposites which were synthesized by a wet chemistry method. In LaF3:Ce/CdTe nanocomposites the CdTe quantum dots are converted into nanowires, while in LaF3/CdTe nanocomposites no such conversion is observed. The CdTe luminescence in LaF3:Ce/CdTe nanocomposites is enhanced about 5 times, while in LaF3/CdTe nanocomposites no enhancement was observed. Energy transfer, light-re-absorption and surface passivation are likely the reasons for the luminescence enhancement.

Giant Overlap between the Magnetic and Superconducting Phases of CeAu2Si2 under Pressure  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

High pressure provides a powerful means for exploring unconventional superconductivity which appears mostly on the border of magnetism. Here, we report the discovery of pressure-induced heavy-fermion superconductivity up to 2.5K in the antiferromanget CeAu2Si2 (TN?10??K). Remarkably, the magnetic and superconducting phases are found to overlap across an unprecedentedly wide pressure interval from 11.8 to 22.3GPa. Moreover, both the bulk Tc and TM are strongly enhanced when increasing the pressure from 16.7 to 20.2GPa. Tc reaches a maximum at a pressure slightly below pc?22.5??GPa, at which magnetic order disappears. Furthermore, the scaling behavior of the resistivity provides evidence for a continuous delocalization of the Ce 4f electrons associated with a critical end point lying just above pc. We show that the maximum Tc of CeAu2Si2 actually occurs at almost the same unit-cell volume as that of CeCu2Si2 and CeCu2Ge2, and when the Kondo and crystal-field splitting energies become comparable. Dynamical mean-filed theory calculations suggest that the peculiar behavior in pressurized CeAu2Si2 might be related to its Ce?4f orbital occupancy. Our results not only provide a unique example of the interplay between superconductivity and magnetism, but also underline the role of orbital physics in understanding Ce-based heavy-fermion systems.

Rationalization of the Hubbard U parameter in CeO{sub x} from first principles: Unveiling the role of local structure in screening  

SciTech Connect

The density functional theory (DFT)+U method has been widely employed in theoretical studies on various ceria systems to correct the delocalization bias in local and semi-local DFT functionals with moderate computational cost. We present a systematic and quantitative study, aiming to gain better understanding of the dependence of Hubbard U on the local atomic arrangement. To rationalize the Hubbard U of Ce 4f, we employed the first principles linear response method to compute Hubbard U for Ce in ceria clusters, bulks, and surfaces. We found that the Hubbard U varies in a wide range from 4.3 eV to 6.7 eV, and exhibits a strong correlation with the Ce coordination number and CeO bond lengths, rather than the Ce 4f valence state. The variation of the Hubbard U can be explained by the changes in the strength of local screening due to O ? Ce intersite transitions.

Morphological and Structural Changes During the Reduction and Reoxidation of CuO/CeO(2) and Ce(1-x)Cu(x)O(2) Nanocatalysts: In-situ Studies with Environmental TEM, XRD and XAS  

SciTech Connect

We have studied the structural, morphological, and electronic properties of CuO/CeO{sub 2} and Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2} nanocatalysts during reduction/oxidation cycles using H{sub 2} and O{sub 2} as chemical probes. Time-resolved in situ characterization was performed by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) as well as aberration-corrected environmental transmission electron microscopy (ETEM). We have found that both types of nanocatalysts reduce to a Cu/CeO{sub 2} biphase system with significant oxygen vacancies in CeO{sub 2}. Important variations are seen in the Cu particle size and metal dispersion depending on the initial state of the copper oxide-ceria systems. During subsequent in situ oxygen annealing, the Cu precipitated from the CuO/CeO{sub 2} system reoxidized to form CuO through a Cu{sub 2}O intermediate phase as expected. However, the Cu precipitated from the Ce{sub 0.8}Cu{sub 0.2}O{sub 2} solid solution behaved rather differently under oxidizing conditions, and neither oxidized to form CuO nor fully returned to a bulk Ce{sub 0.8}Cu{sub 0.2}O{sub 2} phase in solid solution. We found that {approx} 50% of the Cu returned to a Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2} solid solution, while the remainder was observed by in situ ETEM to form an amorphous copper oxide phase with a Cu oxidation state similar to Ce{sub 1-x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2}, but with a local bonding environment similar to CuO. The behavior of the reduced Ce{sub 0.8}Cu{sub 0.2}O{sub 2} reflects strong interactions between Cu and the ceria matrix and illustrates the advantages of working with solid solutions of mixed oxides.

The magnetic susceptibility of a polycrystalline, single-phase sample of CeAl{sub 3} has been measured from 10 K to below 800 {mu}K. Above 40 mK, the temperature dependence of the susceptibility is consistent with the results of other groups and possesses a broad peak around 500 mK. Using standard rf superconducting-quantum-interference-device detection techniques operating at 16 Hz, the sample, which was located in a shielded environment having a residual static field of less than 2 nT, was not observed to show any magnetic anomaly from 40 mK down to the lowest achievable temperature.

High temperature properties of Ce1-xPrxO2-? as an active layer material for SOFC cathodes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We prepared Ce1-xPrxO2-? and investigated its high temperature properties as a material for the composite active layer of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) cathode. We found that increasing the Pr concentration increases the total conductivity and oxygen vacancy concentration at high temperature, and this may lead to improvement of the cathodic reaction. When Ce1-xPrxO2-? is heated, it expands significantly at a certain temperature (Tinf), and this expansion depends on the Ce1-xPrxO2-? composition. The expansion is associated with an abrupt increase in the unit cell volume of the cubic structure. Abrupt increases in the total conductivity and oxygen vacancy concentration were also observed at Tinf. These results can be explained by oxygen vacancy and electron formation (n-type electronic conductivity increase) at Tinf and above Tinf. A sample with a Ce1-xPrxO2-? composition where x=1.0 has no such Tinf. A composition near x=1.0 for Ce1-xPrxO2-? is favorable for the active layer material of an SOFC cathode, because of the high conductivity and high concentration of oxygen vacancies.

Synthesis and luminescence of CePO4:Tb/LaPO4 core/sheath nanowires  

SciTech Connect

CePO4:Tb/LaPO4 core/sheath architectured nanowires have been successful synthesized by a facile aqueous chemical method mediated by original CePO4:Tb aggregation seeds. The seed crystals serve as both a luminescence center and nucleation site for epitaxial growth. The seed nanocrystals have irregular sphere-like shape with an average size of around 6.8 nm and a narrow size distribution. When the seed crystals are coated with LaPO4, the resulting CePO4:Tb/LaPO4 core/sheath architectured nanowires have mean diameters of about 7.6 nm and lengths up to 331 nm. Both the photo- and X-ray luminescence demonstrate that the LaPO4 coating increases the luminescence efficiency. These core-sheath structured nanowires may find potential applications in solid state lighting, medical imaging and radiation detection.

Protolysis of the cerium alkyl Cp*2CeCH(SiMe3)2 (1) by triethylammoniumtetraphenylborate provides a useful route to cationic cerium compounds [Cp*2Ce(L)2][BPh4] (2, L = tetrahydrofuran; 3, L= tetrahydrothiophene). The crystal structure of the tetrahydrothiophene derivative was determined by X-ray diffraction, which showed it to consist of discrete [Cp*2Ce(THT)2]+ and \\{BPh4ovbar\\} ions. The Cp* ring-centroids (cent) and the sulphur atoms in the cation form a distorted tetrahedron with a Cent-Ce- Cent angle of 134.57(6) and Ce-S distances of 3.058(1) and 3.072(1)A?.

Ambient-Pressure Bulk Superconductivity Deep in the Magnetic State of CeRhIn5  

SciTech Connect

Specific heat, magnetic susceptibility and electrical transport measurements were performed at ambient pressure on high-quality single crystal specimens of CeRhIn5 down to ultra-low temperatures. We report signatures of an anomaly observed in all measured quantities consistent with a bulk phase transition to a superconducting state at T{sub c}=110 mK. Occurring far below the onset of antiferromagnetism at T{sub N}=3.8 K, this transition appears to involve a significant portion of the available low-temperature density of electronic states, exhibiting an entropy change in line with that found in other members of the 115 family of superconductors tuned away from quantum criticality.

Anisotropic Effect of Cd and Hg Doping on the Pauli Limited Superconductor CeCoIn5  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We studied the effect of impurity on the first order superconducting (SC) transition and the high field-low temperature (HFLT) SC state of CeCoIn5 by measuring the specific heat of CeCo(In1-xCdx)5 with x=0.0011, 0.0022, and 0.0033 and CeCo(In1-xHgx)5 with x=0.000?16, 0.000?32, and 0.000?48 at temperatures down to 0.1K and fields up to 14T. Cd substitution rapidly suppresses the crossover temperature T0, where the SC transition changes from second to first order, to T=0??K with x=0.0022 for H?[100], while it remains roughly constant up to x=0.0033 for H?[001]. The associated anomaly of the proposed FFLO state in Hg-doped samples is washed out by x=0.000?48, while remaining at the same temperature, indicating high sensitivity of that state to impurities. We interpret these results as supporting the nonmagnetic, possibly FFLO, origin of the HFLT state in CeCoIn5.

Effect of MnO on the microstructures, phase stability and mechanical properties of ceria-partially-stabilized zirconia (Ce-TZP) and Ce-TZP-Al sub 2 O sub 3 composites  

SciTech Connect

Effect of increasing amounts of MnO additions on the microstructures, phase stability and mechanical properties of ZrO{sub 2}-12 m% CeO{sub 2} and ZrO{sub 2}-12 m% CeO{sub 2}-10 w% Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} were studied. MnO suppressed grain growth in ZrO{sub 2}-12 m% CeO{sub 2}, while enhancing the mechanical properties significantly (strength=557 MPa, fracture toughness=9.3 MPa.(m){sup 1/2} at 0.2 w% MnO). The enhanced mechanical properties were achieved despite an increased stability of the tetragonal phase as evidenced by a lower burst transformation temperature (M{sub b}) and a reduced volume fraction of the monoclinic phase on the fracture surface. In ZrO{sub 2}-12 m% CeO{sub 2}-10 w% Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}, the addition of MnO suppressed the grain size of ZrO{sub 2}, while promoting grain growth and changing the morphology of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}. More significantly, the stability of the tetragonal ZrO{sub 2} phase decreased (high M{sub b} temperature) with a concurrent increase in fracture toughness (13.2 MPa.(m){sup 1/2} at 2 w% MnO) and transformation plasticity (1.2% in four-point bending). The widths of the transformation zones observed adjacent to the fracture surfaces showed a consistent inverse relation to the transformation yield stress as would be expected from the mechanics of stress-induced phase transformation at crack tips. The improvements in mechanical properties obtained in the base Ce-TZP and the Ce-TZP-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} composite ceramics with the addition of MnO are critically examined in the context of transformation toughening and other possible mechanisms.

A benchmark for investigating the radial dependence of C/E for control rod worths in large decoupled cores  

SciTech Connect

The first physics measurements of a heterogeneous core on the critical assembly ZPPR-7 at ANL showed that the C/E ratios with ENDF/B data for the worths of the control rods in the outer bank were several percent higher than those at the inner bank positions. This radial variation in the C/E for the rod worths was further confirmed in the analysis of the large conventional core ZPPR-10, and again in the analysis of the large heterogeneous core series ZPPR-13. In the design of a power reactor, the number of control rods, and their disposition, are determined by calculations. Misprediction of the worth of the control rods can lead to serious economic penalties by restricting the operation of the core. Retrofitting a core to accommodate more worth will be costly and is likely to lead to a non-optimized core. This document provides a discussion of these calculations. 7 refs., 7 figs., 12 tabs.

Observation of inner-shell-excited configurations in triply ionized cerium Ce{sup 3+}  

SciTech Connect

We report wavelength measurements and energy levels for the three-times ionized cerium atom Ce{sup 3+}. The spectrum is that of a simple one-electron atom overlaid with a more complex three-electron spectrum originating from the excitation of an electron in the inner closed shell to the valence shell. The data provide energy levels for the inner-shell-excited configurations 5p{sup 5}4f5d and 5p{sup 5}4f6s and solve a long-standing puzzle regarding the fine structure of the 5p{sup 6}6d configuration, which is known to be anomalously large and inverted. The data show that this anomalous fine structure is the result of interaction between 5p{sup 6}6d and the inner-shell-excited configuration 5p{sup 5}4f5d. The results are supported by Hartree-Fock calculations and least-squares fits of the energy parameters to the observed levels. From our observed 5p{sup 6}6g configuration, we determine the ionization energy as 297670{+-}70 cm{sup -1} (36.906{+-}0.009 eV)

Q-dependence of the spin fluctuations in the intermediate valence compound CePd3  

SciTech Connect

We report inelastic neutron scattering experiments on a single crystal of the intermediate valence compound CePd3. At 300 K the magnetic scattering is quasielastic, with half-width G = 23 meV, and is independent of momentum transfer Q. At low temperature, the Q-averaged magnetic spectrum is inelastic, exhibiting a broad peak centered near E-max = 55 meV. These results, together with the temperature dependence of the susceptibility, 4f occupation number, and specific heat, can be fit by the Kondo/Anderson impurity model. The low temperature scattering near Emax, however, shows significant variations with Q, reflecting the coherence of the 4f lattice. The intensity is maximal at (1/2, 1/2, 0), intermediate at (1/2, 0, 0) and (0, 0, 0), and weak at (1/2, 1/2, 1/2). We discuss this Q-dependence in terms of current ideas about coherence in heavy fermion systems.

Structure Sensitivity of the Low-temperature Water-gas Shift Reaction on CuCeO2 catalysts  

SciTech Connect

We have investigated the structure sensitivity of the water-gas shift (WGS) reaction on Cu-CeO{sub 2} catalysts prepared at the nanoscale by different techniques. On the surface of ceria, different CuO{sub x} structures exist. We show here that only the strongly bound Cu-[O{sub x}]-Ce species, probably associated with the surface oxygen vacancies of ceria, are active for catalyzing the low-temperature WGS reaction. Weakly bound CuO{sub x} clusters and CuO nanoparticles are spectator species in the reaction. Isolated Cu{sup 2+} ions doping the ceria surface are not active themselves, but they are important in that they create oxygen vacancies and can be used as a reservoir of copper to replenish surface Cu removed by leaching or sintering. Accordingly, synthesis techniques such as coprecipitation that allow for extensive solubility of Cu in ceria should be preferred over impregnation, deposition-precipitation, ion exchange or another two-step method whereby the copper precursor is added to already made ceria nanocrystals. For the synthesis of different structures, we have used two methods: a homogeneous coprecipitation (CP), involving hexamethylenetetramine as the precipitating agent and the pH buffer; and a deposition-precipitation (DP) technique. In the latter case, the ceria supports were first synthesized at the nanoscale with different shapes (rods, cubes) to investigate any potential shape effect on the reaction. Cu-CeO{sub 2} catalysts with different copper contents up to ca. 20 at.% were prepared. An indirect shape effect of CeO{sub 2}, manifested by the propensity to form oxygen vacancies and strongly bind copper in the active form, was established; i.e. the water-gas shift reaction is not structure-sensitive. The apparent activation energy of the reaction on all samples was similar, 50 {+-} 10 kJ/mol, in a product-free (2% CO-10% H{sub 2}O) gas mixture.

Adsorption and Reaction of C(1)-C(3) Alcohols over CeO(x)(111) Thin Films  

SciTech Connect

This study reports the interaction of methanol, ethanol, 1-propanol, and 2-propanol with well-ordered CeO{sub 2}(111) thin film surfaces. All of the alcohols adsorb at low temperature by forming alkoxy and hydroxyl species on the surface. On fully oxidized CeO{sub 2}(111), recombination occurs between some of the alkoxys and hydroxyls, resulting in alcohol desorption near 220 K. At the same temperature, some of the surface hydroxyls disproportionate to produce water and the loss of lattice O. The remaining alkoxys react above 550 K. The primary alcohols favor dehydrogenation products (aldehydes). There is a net loss of O from the system, resulting in a reduction of the ceria. The secondary alcohol, 2-propanol, undergoes primarily dehydration, producing propene with no net change in the cerium oxidation state. Reduced CeO{sub X}(111) competes with the gaseous products for available O. Little or no water is produced. The reaction selectivity for the C{sub 2} and C{sub 3} alcohols shifts toward favoring dehydration products. The loss of O from the alcohols leads to oxidation of the reduced ceria. Compared with the oxidized surface, the alkene desorption shifts to lower temperature, whereas the aldehyde desorption shifts to higher temperature. This indicates that, on the reduced surface, it is easier to break the C-O bond but more difficult to break the O-substrate bond.

Characterization of Ce SUP 3+-tributyl phosphate coordination complexes produced by fused droplet electrospray ionization with a target capillary  

SciTech Connect

Coordination complexes containing Ce(III) and tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP) in the 1+, 2+ and 3+ charge states were generated using desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) mass spectrometry, in which the analyte solutions were supplied via a target capillary orthogonally situated with respect to the electrospray. Comparison with direct electrospray (ESI) showed that the same coordination complexes were produced in each experiment, and could be described by the general formula [Ce(NO3)m=0-2(TBP)n](3-m)+. This result indicates that DESI has utility for measuring metal speciation for metal ligand solutions where the gas-phase complexes generated by ESI have been correlated with solution speciation. Such an application would be useful for analyses where it is desirable to limit the total amount of metal being handled, or that have solvent systems that are not readily amenable to ESI. Both the direct ESI and DESI mass spectra showed similar trends with respect to the TBP:Ce ratio, viz. high values tend to favor formation of a larger fraction of the 1+ species, and the 2+ and 3+ species become relatively more important as the ratio is decreased. Within individual charge state ion envelopes, lower TBP:Ce ratios produce coordination complexes with fewer ligands, a trend also seen using both approaches. These trends again point toward strong similarity between the direct ESI and DESI analyses of the metal-ligand solutions. The DESI experiments were less sensitive for measuring the coordination complexes compared to the direct ESI experiments, by a factor of 10 - 100 depending on whether minimum detectable concentration or absolute ion abundances were considered. Nevertheless, mid-picomolar quantities of coordination complexes were measured using the target capillary, indicating that sensitivity would be sufficient for measuring species in many industrial separations processes.

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

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.

SESAME 96170, a solid-liquid equation of state for CeO2  

SciTech Connect

I describe an equation of state (EOS) for the low-pressure solid phase and liquid phase of cerium (IV) oxide, CeO{sub 2}. The models and parameters used to calculate the EOS are presented in detail, and I compare with data for the full-density crystal. Hugoniot data are available only for high-porosity powders, and I discuss difficulties in comparing with such data. I have constructed SESAME 96170, an EOS for cerium (IV) oxide that includes the ambient solid and liquid phases. The EOS extends over the full standard SESAME range, but should not be used at low temperatures and high densities because of the lack of a high-pressure solid phase. I have described the models used to compute the three terms of the EOS (cold curve, nuclear, and thermal electronic), and I have given the parameters used in the models. They were determined by comparison with experimental data at P = 1 atm, including the constant-pressure specific heat, coefficient of thermal expansion, and melting and boiling points. The EOS compares well with data in its intended range of validity, but the presence of high-frequency optical modes in its phonon spectrum limits the agreement of our models with thermal data. The next step is to construct a multiphase EOS that includes the low- and high-pressure solid phases and the liquid. The DAC data from Duclos will most strongly constrain the parameters of the high-pressure solid. A remaining issue is the comparison of the crystal-density EOS with experimental Hugoniot data, which are taken at much lower initial data because the samples are porous powders. A satisfactory means of modeling porosity, allowing comparison of theory and experiment, has not yet been produced.

Structural characterization of the CeO{sub 2}/Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3} mixed system by synchrotron X-ray diffraction  

SciTech Connect

The structural determination of the CeO{sub 2}/Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3} mixed system is a non-trivial problem because of the close resemblance between the ionic sizes of Ce{sup 4+} and Gd{sup 3+} and between the crystal structures of CeO{sub 2} and Gd{sub 2}O{sub 3}. (Ce{sub 1-x}Gd{sub x})O{sub 2-x/2} powder samples with x ranging between 0 and 1 have been synthesized by coprecipitation of mixed oxalates and subsequent thermal decomposition in air at 1200 Degree-Sign C followed by slow cooling. Synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction data were collected and refined by the Rietveld method. Lattice parameters do not follow Vegard's law and no peak splitting has been observed for any composition, meaning that no biphasic regions exist over the whole compositional range.

Characterization of CeO2-Supported Cu-Pd Bimetallic Catalyst for the Oxygen-Assisted Water-Gas Shift Reaction  

SciTech Connect

This study was focused to investigate the roles of Cu and Pd in CuPd/CeO2 bimetallic catalysts containing 20-30 wt% Cu and 0.5-1 wt% Pd used in the oxygen-assisted water-gas shift (OWGS) reaction employing a combined bulk and surface characterization techniques such as XRD, TPR, CO chemisorption, and in-situ XPS. The catalytic activity for CO conversion and the stability of catalyst during on-stream operation increased by the addition of Cu to Pd/CeO2 or Pd to Cu/CeO2 monometallic catalysts, especially when the OWGS reaction was performed under low temperatures, below 200oC. The bimetallic catalyst after leaching with nitric acid retained about 60% of its original activity. The TPR of monometallic Cu/CeO2 showed reduction of CuO supported on CeO2 in two distinct regions, around 150 and 250oC. The high temperature peak disappeared and reduction occurred in a single step around 150oC upon Pd addition. The Pd dispersion decreased from 38.5% for Pd/CeO2 to below 1% for CuPd/CeO2 bimetallic catalyst. In-situ XPS studies showed a shift in Cu 2p peaks toward lower binding energy (BE) with concommitant shift in the Pd 3d peaks toward higher BE. Addition of Pd decreased the surface Cu concentration while the concentration of Pd remained unaltered. All these observations indicated the formation of Cu-Pd surface alloy. The valence band XP spectra collected below 10 eV corroborated the core level XP spectra and indicated that Cu is mainly involved in the catalytic reaction. The improved catalytic activity and stability of CuPd/CeO2 bimetallic catalyst was attributed to the alloy formation.

Epitaxial growth and characterization of Ce{sub 1{minus}x}Zr{sub x}O{sub 2} thin films  

SciTech Connect

Epitaxial films of mixed Ce{sub 1{minus}x}Zr{sub x}O{sub 2}(001) oxides with x{le}0.3 have been grown on SrTiO{sub 3}(001) by oxygen-plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy. The film growth at 600 {degree}C is predominantly nucleation and growth of three-dimensional islands. The films become much smoother after rapid thermal annealing at 700 {degree}C for 30 s in the oxygen plasma. High-energy ion channeling reveals that Zr atoms substitutionally incorporate at cation sites in the CeO{sub 2} lattice for all doping levels, leading to Ce{sub 1{minus}x}Zr{sub x}O{sub 2} solid solutions. Analysis of Zr 3d and Ce 3d core-level binding energies shows that the oxidation state of both Zr and Ce is +4. Lattice distortion induced by incorporation of Zr in the CeO{sub 2} lattice becomes prevalent for high doping levels and surface roughen accordingly. {copyright} {ital 1999 American Vacuum Society.}

Nanopattering in CeOx/Cu(111): A New Type of Surface Reconstruction and Enhancement of Catalytic Activity  

SciTech Connect

Our results indicate that small amounts of an oxide deposited on a stable metal surface can trigger a massive surface reconstruction under reaction conditions. In low-energy electron microscopy (LEEM) experiments, no reconstruction of Cu(111) is observed after chemisorbing oxygen or after reducing O/Cu(111) in a CO atmosphere. On the other hand, LEEM images taken in situ during the reduction of CeO{sub 2}/CuO{sub 1-x}/Cu(111) show a complex nonuniform transformation of the surface morphology. Ceria particles act as nucleation sites for the growth of copper microterraces once CuO{sub 1-x} is reduced. Can this reconstructed surface be used to enhance the catalytic activity of inverse oxide/metal catalysts? Indeed, CeO{sub x} on reconstructed Cu(111) is an extremely active catalyst for the water-gas shift process (CO + H{sub 2}O {yields} H{sub 2} + CO{sub 2}), with the Cu microterraces providing very efficient sites for the dissociation of water and subsequent reaction with CO.

We report precise measurements of CeCu/sub 6/ of the temperature-dependent term in the resistivity rho(T) and the thermoelectric ratio G down to 14 mK and the Lorenz number above 130 mK. Below about 30 mK, G and the coefficient of the T/sup 2/ term in rho(T) are nearly independent of temperature, which implies that the coherent state is attained at about this temperature. G is positive between 14 mK and 4.2 K.

Electronic and optical properties of layered RE{sub 2}Ti{sub 2}O{sub 7} (RE = Ce and Pr) from first principles  

SciTech Connect

We have studied the structural and electronic properties of Ce{sub 2}Ti{sub 2}O{sub 7} (CeTO) and Pr{sub 2}Ti{sub 2}O{sub 7} (PrTO) by first-principles density functional theory calculations. The computed structural parameters are in fairly good agreement with the available experimental findings. Band structure calculations using the GGA+U approach predict an insulating ground state for the herein studied compounds. The insulating band gaps of 2.00 eV and 2.83 eV are found for CeTO and PrTO, respectively. The analysis of the density of states reveals that the strongly localized RE 4f levels act as charge-trapping sites, predicting a lower photocatalytic activity for CeTO. We have also calculated the optical properties for both CeTO and PrTO. Based on these properties, it is predicted that these titanates are insensitive to ultra-violet radiation, while they are more sensitive to frequencies of the radiation in visible and early UV regions.

Effect of CeO{sub 2} addition on the properties of FeAl based alloy produced by mechanical alloying technique  

SciTech Connect

Iron aluminides based on FeAl is notable for their low materials cost, ease of fabrication and good corrosion, suffixation and oxidation resistance. However, the application based on these unique properties still require the development of Fe-Al based alloy since it shows some drawbacks such as a lack of high temperature strength and low ductility. To improve the mechanical properties of FeAl based alloy, ceria (CeO{sub 2}) will be added to this compound. FeAl based alloy produced by the mechanical alloying (MA) technique. The developed specimens then assessed with respect to oxidation behaviour in high temperature, scale microstructure and hardness. The surface morphologies of the alloy evaluated and observed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with an energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). The phase structures of oxide scale formed on them were identified by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The results found that the FeAl intermetallic compound containing CeO{sub 2} 0.5 wt.% is less pores and CeO{sub 2} 1.0 wt.% is more homogen in powder and solid form, higher hardness and increase in their resistance to oxidation behaviour in high temperature compared with another percentage of CeO{sub 2}.

CE IGCC Repowering Project: Use of the Lockheed Kinetic Extruder for coal feeding; Topical report, June 1993  

SciTech Connect

ABB CE is evaluating alternate methods of coal feed across a pressure barrier for its pressurized coal gasification process. The Lockheed Kinetic Extruder has shown to be one of the most promising such developments. In essence, the Kinetic Extruder consists of a rotor in a pressure vessel. Coal enters the rotor and is forced outward to the surrounding pressure vessel by centrifugal force. The force on the coal passing across the rotor serves as a pressure barrier. Should this technology be successfully developed and tested, it could reduce the cost of IGCC technology by replacing the large lockhoppers conventionally used with a much smaller system. This will significantly decrease the size of the gasifier island. Kinetic Extruder technology needs testing over an extended period of time to develop and prove the long term reliability and performance needed in a commercial application. Major issues to be investigated in this program are component design for high temperatures, turn-down, scale-up factors, and cost. Such a test would only be economically feasible if it could be conducted on an existing plant. This would defray the cost of power and feedstock. Such an installation was planned for the CE IGCC Repowering Project in Springfield, Illinois. Due to budgetary constraints, however, this provision was dropped from the present plant design. It is believed that, with minor design changes, a small scale test version of the Kinetic Extruder could be installed parallel to an existing lockhopper system without prior space allocation. Kinetic Extruder technology represents significant potential cost savings to the IGCC process. For this reason, a test program similar to that specified for the Springfield project would be a worthwhile endeavor.

Electronic Structure of CeFeAsO1-xFx (x=0, 0.11/x=0.12) compounds  

SciTech Connect

We report an extensive study on the intrinsic bulk electronic structure of the high-temperature superconductor CeFeAsO{sub 0.89}F{sub 0.11} and its parent compound CeFeAsO by soft and hard x-ray photoemission, x-ray absorption and soft-x-ray emission spectroscopies. The complementary surface/bulk probing depth, and the elemental and chemical sensitivity of these techniques allows resolving the intrinsic electronic structure of each element and correlating it with the local structure, which has been probed by extended-x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy. The measurements indicate a predominant 4f{sup 1} (i.e. Ce{sup 3+}) initial state configuration for Cerium and an effective valence-band-to-4f charge-transfer screening of the core hole. The spectra also reveal the presence of a small Ce f{sup 0} initial state configuration, which we assign to the occurrence of an intermediate valence state. The data reveal a reasonably good agreement with the partial density of states as obtained in standard density functional calculations over a large energy range. Implications for the electronic structure of these materials are discussed.

Contrasting carrier doping effects in the Kondo insulator CeOs2Al10: The influential role of c?f hybridization in spin-gap formation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The effects of electron (Ir) and hole (Re) doping on the hybridization gap and antiferromagnetic order have been studied by magnetization, muon spin relaxation (?+SR), and inelastic neutron scattering on polycrystalline samples of Ce(Os1?xIrx)2Al10 (x=0.08 and 0.15) and Ce(Os1?yRey)2Al10 (y=0.03). ?+SR spectra clearly reveal bulk magnetic ordering below 20 and 10 K for x=0.08 and 0.15 samples, respectively, with heavily damped oscillations of the muon asymmetry. Our important findings are that a small amount of electron doping (i) completely suppresses the inelastic magnetic excitations at low temperatures, which were observed at 11 meV in the undoped compound, and the magnetic response transforms into a broad quasielastic response, and (ii)surprisingly, the internal field at the corresponding muon site is remarkably enhanced by an order of magnitude compared with the parent compound. Moreover, a small amount (3% Re) of hole doping results in a significant reduction of the intensity of 11 meV peak and an increased c?f hybridization, which is in agreement with the reduction of the Ce ordered moment seen through neutron diffraction and ?+SR. The main origin of the observed doping effect is an extra 5d electron being carried by Ir and a hole carried by Re with respect to the Os atom. The absence of a spin gap/spin wave, despite a larger ordered state moment of Ce, in the electron-doped system cannot be explained based on a conventional theory of magnetism. Thus, the obtained results demonstrate a great sensitivity to the carrier doping and provide additional ways to study the anomalous magnetic properties in the CeT2Al10 (T= Fe, Ru, and Os).

UV absorption properties of ceria-modified compositions within the fluorite-type solid solution CeO{sub 2}-Y{sub 6}WO{sub 12}  

SciTech Connect

A new fluorite-type solid solution domain has been evidenced in the system (1-x) CeO{sub 2}-x/7 Y{sub 6}WO{sub 12}{open_square}{sub 2} using the amorphous citrate route. All the studied phases (0{<=}x{<=}1) crystallize in a cubic-type symmetry. Diffuse reflectance spectra reveal a strong optical absorption between 380 and 400 nm. All substituted compositions spectral selectivities are estimated suitable for application as inorganic UV absorbers. The non linear variation observed in the optical gap values between Y{sub 6}WO{sub 12} and CeO{sub 2} is attributed to the presence of the cerium 4f-block band. Additionally, Time Resolved Microwave Conductivity (TRMC) experiment and phenol photodegradation analyses carried out on the Ce{sub 0.81}Y{sub 0.16}W{sub 0.03}O{sub 1.95}{open_square}{sub 0.05} (x=0.19) composition do not indicate any photocalatytic activity for this material. - Graphical abstract: Diffuse reflectance spectra of the Ce-Y-W-O samples calcined at 1000 deg.

Atomistic calculations of the thermodynamic properties of mixing for tetravalent metal dioxide solid solutions: (Zr, Th, Ce)O{sub 2}  

SciTech Connect

The thermodynamic mixing properties for isometric Th{sub x}Ce{sub 1-x}O{sub 2}, Ce{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2}, and Th{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2} were determined using quantum-mechanical calculations and subsequent Monte-Carlo simulations. Although the Th{sub x}Ce{sub 1-x}O{sub 2} binary indicates exsolution below 600 K, the energy gain due to exsolution is small (E{sub exsoln}=1.5 kJ/(mol cations) at 200 K). The energy gain for exsolution is significant for the binaries containing Zr; at 1000 K, E{sub exsoln}=6 kJ/(mol cations) for the Ce{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2} binary, and E{sub exsoln}=17 kJ/(mol cations) for the Th{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2} binary. The binaries containing Zr have limited miscibility and cation ordering (at 200 K for x=0.5). At 1673 K, only 4.0 and 0.25 mol% ZrO{sub 2} can be incorporated into CeO{sub 2} and ThO{sub 2}, respectively. Solid-solution calculations for the tetragonal Th{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2} binary show decreased mixing enthalpy due to the increased end-member stability of tetragonal ZrO{sub 2}. Inclusion of the monoclinic ZrO{sub 2} is predicted to further reduce the mixing enthalpy for binaries containing Zr. - Graphical abstract: Temperature-composition phase diagram showing miscibility gaps for the isometric Th{sub x}Ce{sub 1-x}O{sub 2}, isometric Ce{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2}, isometric Th{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2}, and tetragonal Th{sub x}Zr{sub 1-x}O{sub 2} binaries at low composition (0of the linear and Margules approximations for the incorporation limit (x{sub inc}), and the dotted solidus lines are the Margules approximation (above the average) and the linear approximation (below the average).

Role of dopant incorporation on the magnetic properties of Ce1-xNixO2 nanoparticles: An electron paramagnetic resonance study  

SciTech Connect

Nickel doping has been found to produce weak room-temperature ferromagnetism in CeO2 [1]. The saturation magnetization of the chemically synthesized Ce1-xNixO2 samples showed a maximum for x = 0.04, above which the magnetization decreased gradually. For Ce1-xNixO2 samples with x ? 0.04, an activation process involving slow annealing of the sample to 500 oC increased the saturation magnetization by more than two orders of magnitude [1]. However, no such activation effect was observed in samples with x < 0.04. Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR), a sensitive technique to investigate the ionic states and local environments and interactions, has been used here in this work to investigate (i) why the ferromagnetic behavior gradually weakened and disappeared for x > 0.04 and (ii)_what causes the saturation magnetization to dramatically increase in the activated Ce1-xNixO2 samples with x ? 0.04 and why this process is absent in samples with x < 0.04. Our X-band (~9.4 GHz) EPR experiments and detailed simulation analysis on several as-prepared Ce1-xNixO2 samples with 0.01 ? x ? 0.10 at 5 K and 300 K indicate the presence of two magnetically inequivalent Ni2+ ions with the ionic spin of 1, one Ce3+ ion with spin , and three O2-. Spectra of samples with x < 0.04 are dominated by a single Ni2+ EPR line ascribed to dopant ions in substitutional sites whereas in samples with x ? 0.04, an additional signal attributed to Ni2+ ions in interstitial sites is also present. In the activated sample, the EPR line due to the interstitial Ni2+ is completely absent and only the lines due to substituional Ni2+ ions are present suggesting that the enhanced ferromagnetism results from conversion of interstitial Ni2+ ions to substitutional sites.

Structure and conductivity of strontium-doped cerium orthovanadates Ce{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}VO{sub 4} (0{<=}x{<=}0.175)  

SciTech Connect

A-site substituted cerium orthovanadates, Ce{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}VO{sub 4}, were synthesised by solid-state reactions. It was found that the solid solution limit in Ce{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}VO{sub 4} is at x=0.175. The crystal structure was analysed by X-ray diffraction and it exhibits a tetragonal zircon structure of space group I4{sub 1}/amd (1 4 1) with a=7.3670 (3) and c=6.4894 (1) A for Ce{sub 0.825}Sr{sub 0.175}VO{sub 4}.

Conductivity measurements were performed for the first time up to the strontium solid solution limit in air and in dry 5% H{sub 2}/Ar with conductivity values at 600 {sup o}C ranging from 0.3 to 30 mS cm{sup -1} in air to 30-45 mS cm{sup -1} in reduced atmosphere. Sample Ce{sub 0.825}Sr{sub 0.175}VO{sub 4} is redox stable at a temperature below 600 {sup o}C although the conductivity is not high enough to be used as an electrode for solid oxide fuel cells. - Graphical abstract: A-site substituted cerium orthovanadates Ce{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}VO{sub 4} were synthesised by solid state reaction and their conductivities measured in air and dry 5% H{sub 2}/Ar up to the strontium solid solution limit.

Impact of oxygen annealing on the heat capacity and magnetic resonance of superconducting Pr0.88LaCe0.12CuO4?  

SciTech Connect

We use thermodynamic and neutron-scattering measurements to study the effect of oxygen annealing on the superconductivity and magnetism in Pr0.88LaCe0.12CuO4?. Although the transition temperature Tc measured by susceptibility and superconducting coherence length increases smoothly with gradual oxygen removal from the annealing process, bulk superconductivity, marked by a specific-heat anomaly at Tc and the presence of a neutron magnetic resonance, only appears abruptly when Tc is close to the largest value. These results suggest that the effect of oxygen annealing must first be determined in order to establish a Ce doping dependence of antiferromagnetism and superconductivity phase diagram for electron-doped copper oxides.

Study of Co/CeO2-?-Al2O3 catalysts for steam and oxidative reforming of ethanol for hydrogen production  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Cobalt catalysts supported on ?Al2O3, CeO2 and CeO2-?Al2O3 were prepared by the impregnation method and applied to steam and oxidative reforming of ethanol. The catalysts were characterized by temperature-programmed reduction with H2 (TPR-H2), X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2-physisorption and diffuse reflectance spectroscopy in the ultra-violet visible range (DRS-UVVis). Steam reforming of ethanol was carried out at 400C, 500C and 600C with an ethanol/water feed in a molar ratio of 1:3. The oxidative reforming of ethanol was carried out at 500C with an ethanol/H2O/O2 feed in molar proportion 1:3:0.20. Analysis of the gaseous products showed that the Co/?Al2O3 and Co/CeO2-?Al2O3 catalysts were highly selective for H2 and CO2, and this was attributed to the high specific surface area of these catalysts. The addition of O2 to the feed improved the hydrogen selectivity and reduced the carbon formation on Co/?Al2O3, which suffered fast deactivation in the SRE reaction at low temperature.

Gold, Copper, and Platinum Nanoparticles Dispersed on CeOx/TiO2(110) Surfaces: High Water-Gas Shift Activity and the Nature of the Mixed-Metal Oxide at the Nanometer Level  

SciTech Connect

At small coverages of ceria on TiO{sub 2}(110), the CeO{sub x} nanoparticles have an unusual coordination mode. Scanning tunneling microscopy and density-functional calculations point to the presence of Ce{sub 2}O{sub 3} dimers, which form diagonal arrays that have specific orientations of 0, 24, and 42{sup o} with respect to the [1 -1 0] direction of the titania substrate. At high coverages of ceria on TiO{sub 2}(110), the surface exhibits two types of terraces. In one type, the morphology is not very different from that observed at low ceria coverage. However, in the second type of terrace, there is a compact array of ceria particles with structures that do not match the structures of CeO{sub 2}(111) or CeO{sub 2}(110). The titania substrate imposes on the ceria nanoparticles nontypical coordination modes, enhancing their chemical reactivity. This phenomenon leads to a larger dispersion of supported metal nanoparticles (M = Au, Cu, Pt) and makes possible the direct participation of the oxide in catalytic reactions. The M/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110) surfaces display an extremely high catalytic activity for the water-gas shift reaction that follows the sequence Au/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110) < Cu/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110) < Pt/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110). For low coverages of Cu and CeO{sub x}, Cu/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110) is 8-12 times more active than Cu(111) or Cu/ZnO industrial catalysts. In the M/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110) systems, there is a strong coupling of the chemical properties of the admetal and the mixed-metal oxide: The adsorption and dissociation of water probably take place on the oxide, CO adsorbs on the admetal nanoparticles, and all subsequent reaction steps occur at the oxide-admetal interface. The high catalytic activity of the M/CeO{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}(110) surfaces reflects the unique properties of the mixed-metal oxide at the nanometer level.

CO chemisorption effect on cerium initial and final states in the core level photoelectron spectrum of CeIr  

SciTech Connect

Carbon monoxide (CO) adsorption on the mixed-valence compound CeIr/sub 2/ has been studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. CO adsorption on this surface is predominantly molecular. They show that changes in the cerium 3d spectrum upon CO chemisorption may be separated into initial- and final-state effects. In the initial state, stabilization of the (Xe)(5d6s)/sup 3/4f/sup 1/ configuration occurs due to an increase in effective nuclear charge on the cerium atom. This leads to a decrease in f/sup 0/ intensity in the recorded spectrum. Increased f-electron repulsion in the final state raises the energy of the f/sup 2/ final-state configuration and causes a 2.2-eV shift to higher binding energy of the 3d/sub 5/2/f/sup 2/ peak. The 0.5-eV binding energy shifts of the 3d/sub 5/2/f/sup 1/ and 3d/sub 3/2/f/sup 1/ peaks along with the 2.2-eV shift of the 3d/sub 5/2/f/sup 2/ peak indicate that the f orbitals are quite sensitive indicators of the surface oxidation state in this compound.

High Activity of Ce1-xNixO2-y for H2 Production through Ethanol Steam Reforming: Tuning Catalytic Performance through Metal-Oxide Interactions  

SciTech Connect

The importance of the oxide: Ce{sub 0.8}Ni{sub 0.2}O{sub 2-y} is an excellent catalyst for ethanol steam reforming. Metal-oxide interactions perturb the electronic properties of the small particles of metallic nickel present in the catalyst under the reaction conditions and thus suppress any methanation activity. The nickel embedded in ceria induces the formation of O vacancies, which facilitate cleavage of the OH bonds in ethanol and water.

By modeling the traffic intensity and the number of working devices in a dynamic HAN as a Markov chain, the power consumption of the dynamic HAN with Power Saving Mechanism (PSM) and the conventional static HAN with Continuous Active Mode (CAM) are evaluated and compared. On the other hand, the probability density function (PDF) of the signal to interference and noise ratio (SINR) for the active user connected in the HAN is derived from the amplitude distribution property of the classical indoor SalehValenzuela (SV) channel. The numerical results show that WiFi Direct technique not only improves the power saving in the HAN for Smart Grid, but also enhances the reliability of HAN communications for Smart Grid.

Temperature-dependent magnetic Compton scattering study of spin moments in Ce(Fe0.94Ru0.06)2  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report on the study of spin moments in Ce(Fe0.94Ru0.06)2 using magnetic Compton scattering. The measurements on polycrystalline sample were carried out at SPring-8, Japan with 175 keV elliptically polarized synchrotron radiation at 70, 90, 120, 150, and 190 K in 2 T field. The temperature variation of the magnetic effect exhibits clearly the double magnetic transition, i.e., from antiferromagnetic to ferromagnetic and ferromagnetic to paramagnetic transition in agreement with the resistivity and magnetization studies on this material. A comparison of temperature-dependent spin moments in the present sample with Ce(Fe0.96Ru0.04)2 shows interesting features of spin momentum density.

Electronic structure analysis and properties of Sr{sub 2}CeO{sub 4} grown by solgel method  

SciTech Connect

Highlights: ? Sr{sub 2}CeO{sub 4} nanopowders were obtained by solgel method. ? SEM/EDX imaging and chemical analysis have been done. ? XPS electronic structure was examined and discussed. ? The terminal and equatorial Ce-O bonds contributions were determined in O2p states. ? The energy gap was estimated by valence band and electrical measurements. -- Abstract: Sr{sub 2}CeO{sub 4} is a very promising material due to its various industrial applications, e.g. for the construction of field emission displays and light emitting diodes. In this work, the phosphor was synthesized by the solgel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) methods. They proved to be very good structural properties of the material and identified negligible impurities from the technological process. The decomposition of the surface of the nanocrystals was found but this did not decrease the spectral features of the compound. The analysis of the XPS O2p lines revealed contributions of two kinds of bonds: terminal and equatorial ones, in the ratio of 2/4. They are separated by 1.2 eV what is in agreement with the observed absorption spectra. A presence of the decomposed layers may produce asymmetric widening of the emission spectra towards a lower energy.

Powder preparation and UV absorption properties of selected compositions in the CeO{sub 2}-Y{sub 2}O{sub 3} system  

SciTech Connect

Several approaches have been investigated to prepare fluorite-type compositions within the (1-x) CeO{sub 2}-xYO{sub 1.5} system. The optical properties of the resulting modified-ceria materials have been characterized in order to evaluate their potential abilities as inorganic UV absorbers. Diffuse reflectance analyses reveal a strong optical absorption between 390 and 400 nm for all substituted compositions and the spectral selectivities are estimated suitable for the targeted application. Additionally, time resolved microwave conductivity (TRMC) and phenol photodegradation analyses do not indicate any photocalatytic activity for these compositions. Aqueous colloidal suspensions of the Ce{sub 0.7}Y{sub 0.3}O{sub 1.85} UV absorber have been carried out. - Graphical abstract: Comparison between diffuse reflectance spectra of ceria (x=0) and yttrium modified ceria (x=0.3)

In Situ Studies of the Active Sites for the Water Gas Shift Reaction over Cu-CeO2 Catalysts: Complex Interaction Between Metallic Copper and Oxygen Vacancies of Ceria  

SciTech Connect

New information about the active sites for the water gas shift (WGS) reaction over Cu-CeO{sub 2} systems was obtained using in-situ, time-resolved X-ray diffraction (TR-XRD), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (TR-XAS, Cu K and Ce L3 edges), and infrared spectroscopy (DRIFTS). Cu-CeO{sub 2} nanoparticles prepared by a novel reversed microemulsion method (doped Ce1-xCuxO2 sample) and an impregnation method (impregnated CuO{sub x}/CeO{sub 2} sample) were studied. The results from all of the samples indicate that both metallic copper and oxygen vacancies in ceria were involved in the generation of active sites for the WGS reaction. Evidence was found for a synergistic Cu-O vacancy interaction. This interaction enhances the chemical activity of Cu, and the presence of Cu facilitates the formation of O vacancies in ceria under reaction conditions. Water dissociation occurred on the O vacancy sites or the Cu-O vacancy interface. No significant amounts of formate were formed on the catalysts during the WGS reaction. The presence of strongly bound carbonates is an important factor for the deactivation of the catalysts at high temperatures. This work identifies for the first time the active sites for the WGS reaction on Cu-CeO{sub 2} catalysts and illustrates the importance of in situ structural studies for heterogeneous catalytic reactions.

Structural and magnetic phase diagram of CeFeAsO1-xFx and its relation tohigh-temperature superconductivity  

SciTech Connect

Recently, high-transition-temperature (high-T{sub c}) superconductivity was discovered in the iron pnictide RFeAsO{sub 1-x}F{sub x} (R, rare-earth metal) family of materials. We use neutron scattering to study the structural and magnetic phase transitions in CeFeAsO{sub 1-x}F{sub x} as the system is tuned from a semimetal to a high-T{sub c} superconductor through fluorine (F) doping, x. In the undoped state, CeFeAsO develops a structural lattice distortion followed by a collinear antiferromagnetic order with decreasing temperature. With increasing fluorine doping, the structural phase transition decreases gradually and vanishes within the superconductivity dome near x = 0.10, whereas the antiferromagnetic order is suppressed before the appearance of superconductivity for x > 0.06, resulting in an electronic phase diagram remarkably similar to that of the high-T{sub c} copper oxides. Comparison of the structural evolution of CeFeAsO{sub 1-x}F{sub x} with other Fe-based superconductors suggests that the structural perfection of the Fe-As tetrahedron is important for the high-T{sub c} superconductivity in these Fe pnictides.

Optical and magneto-optical properties of Co-doped CeO{sub 2??} films in the 0.5 to 4?eV range  

SciTech Connect

Magnetically doped Ce{sub 1?x}Co{sub x}O{sub 2??} (nominal x?=?0.05 and 0.10) films were systematically studied by spectroscopic ellipsometry and magneto-optical spectroscopy. The samples were prepared by pulsed laser deposition on MgO(100) substrates and grew as textured polycrystalline films with thickness between 200 and 750?nm. They exhibited room temperature ferromagnetism and an out-of-plane easy axis attributed to magnetoelastic effects from the in-plane compressive strain. The dispersion of dielectric function of Ce{sub 1?x}Co{sub x}O{sub 2??} films was parametrized by the sum of Tauc-Lorentz and damped Lorentz oscillators and adjusted numerically. Deduced optical band gaps were similar to those of pure CeO{sub 2}, but the Co doping increased the optical absorption. The magneto-optical spectroscopy was carried out in both Faraday and Kerr configurations in the photon energy range from 0.5 to 4?eV, showing a strong dependence of the magneto-optical effect on the Co content near the optical band edge.

Photo- and cathodoluminescence characteristics of blue-light-emitting epitaxial Sr{sub 2}CeO{sub 4} thin-film phosphors  

SciTech Connect

Orthorhombic epitaxial Sr{sub 2}CeO{sub 4} thin-film phosphors were grown on (100) SrTiO{sub 3} and yttria-stabilized-zirconia (YSZ) single crystal substrates with epitaxial relationships of (100) [010]{sub Sr{sub 2}}{sub CeO{sub 4}}//(100)[010]{sub SrTiO{sub 3}} and (100)[010]{sub Sr{sub 2}}{sub CeO{sub 4}}//(100)[011]{sub YSZ}, respectively. As-deposited films exhibit a broadband photoluminescence (PL) emission, peaking at about 477-481 nm with a maximum cathodoluminescence (CL) intensity at about 465 nm. Enhanced PL intensity was observed for the films deposited on (100) YSZ and SrTiO{sub 3} substrates as compared to deposits on c-plane sapphire substrates, correlating with improved intragranular crystallinity and reducing defects via epitaxy. Postannealing in air significantly enhanced both of the PL and CL intensities. Luminous efficiency of 0.14 lm/W at 1 kV and 22 {mu}A/cm{sup 2} was observed for a 2-{mu}m-thick film annealed at 1000 degree sign C in air. (c) 2000 American Institute of Physics.

Spectroscopic study of a Cu/CeO{sub 2} catalyst subjected to redox treatments in carbon monoxide and oxygen  

SciTech Connect

Redox processes induced by interaction of a calcined Cu/CeO{sub 2} catalyst with CO and reoxidation with O{sub 2} have been investigated by CO-TPR, EPR, FTIR of adsorbed CO, and XPS. The initial calcined samples shows the presence of dispersed Cu{sup 2+} species, which give rise in the EPR spectrum to signals due to isolated entities, a somewhat more aggregated Cu{sup 2+}-containing phase, and copper ionic pairs, in coexistence with an EPR-silent CuO-type phase, revealed by XPS. A significant reduction of copper is produced already by contact with CO at room temperature, EPR results suggesting that reducibility of Cu{sup 2+} species decreases with their aggregation degree. Simultaneously, the ceria surface is also reduced by this interaction, copper acting as a strong promoter of this process. A singular consequence of the synergistic reduction of both components is observed by subjecting the catalyst to CO at T{sub r} {ge} 473 K, at which the CO adsorption capability of copper is apparently suppressed, in view of the absence of copper carbonyls in the FTIR spectrum. This is attributed to the establishment of electronic interactions between reduced ceria and small metallic copper particles generated by the reduction process. Contact of the CO-reduced sample with O{sub 2} at room or higher temperature produces an important reoxidation of both copper and ceria, revealed by FTIR and EPR. The synergetic effects between copper and ceria in the reduction process and the easy reoxidation of deeply reduced ceria are thought to be crucial to explaining the high catalytic activity shown by this system for CO oxidation.

Magnetic structures and interplay between rare-earth Ce and Fe magnetism in single-crystal CeFeAsO  

SciTech Connect

Neutron and synchrotron resonant x-ray magnetic scattering (RXMS) complemented by heat capacity and resistivity measurements reveal the evolution of the magnetic structures of Fe and Ce sublattices in a CeFeAsO single crystal. The RXMS of magnetic reflections at the Ce LII edge shows a magnetic transition that is specific to the Ce antiferromagnetic long-range ordering at TCe? 4 K with short-range Ce ordering above TCe, whereas neutron diffraction measurements of a few magnetic reflections indicate a transition at T?? 12 K with an unusual order parameter. Detailed order-parameter measurements on several magnetic reflections by neutrons show a weak anomaly at 4 K that we associate with the Ce ordering. The successive transitions at TCe and T? can also be clearly identified by two anomalies in heat capacity and resistivity measurements. The higher transition temperature at T?? 12 K is mainly ascribed to Fe spin reorientation transition, below which Fe spins rotate uniformly and gradually in the ab plane. The Fe spin reorientation transition and short-range Ce ordering above TCe reflect the strong Fe-Ce couplings prior to long-range ordering of the Ce. The evolution of the intricate magnetic structures in CeFeAsO going through T? and TCe is proposed.

Mixed valence and spin fluctuations in Ce(Ni, Co)/sub 2/ and related systems  

SciTech Connect

The pseudobinary alloys Ce(Ni/sub x/Co/sub 1-x/)/sub 2/, (Ce/sub x/La/sub 1-x/)Ni/sub 2/ and (Ce/sub x/Y/sub 1-x/)Ni/sub 2/, where 0 < x < 1, were studied. The room-temperature lattice constant, the magnetic susceptibility in the 6 to 300 K temperature range, the low-temperature specific heat in the 0.4 to 25 K range, and the electrical resistivity in the 0.4 to 300 K range were measured. Additionally, x-ray absorption around the L/sub 3/ edge was studied using the synchroton radiation. Both thermodynamic and L/sub 3/ probes yield similar results for the changes of valence of Ce across these systems. It was established that Ce is in the saturated valence state in the Ce(Ni/sub x/Co/sub 1-x/)/sub 2/ for x < 0.25. The valence decreases with x in the 0.25 to 1 concentration range. Similarly, the valence of Ce decreases in the (Ce, Y)Ni/sub 2/ systems upon substitution of Y for Ce. The results obtained for the (Ce/sub x/La/sub 1-x/)Ni/sub 2/ system are interpreted in terms of changes of the Ce/sup 3 +/ impurity levels. Spin fluctuations due to the 3d electrons play an important role in these systems

Concurrent engineering taking into account product life-cycle factors seems to be one of the industrial challenges of the next years. Cost estimation and management are two main strategic tasks that imply the possibility of managing costs at the earliest stages of product development. This is why it is indispensable to let people from economics and from industrial engineering collaborates in order to find the best solution for enterprise progress for economical factors mastering. The objective of this paper is to present who we try to adapt costing methods in a PLM and CE point of view to the new industrial context and configuration in order to give pertinent decision aid for product and process choices. A very important factor is related to cost management problems when developing new products. A case study is introduced that presents how product development actors have referenced elements to product life-cycle costs and impacts, how they have an idea bout economical indicators when taking decisions during the progression of the project of product development.

Ca2+-Doped CeBr3 Scintillating Materials  

SciTech Connect

Despite the outstanding scintillation performance characteristics of cerium tribromide (CeBr3) and cerium-activated lanthanum tribromide, their commercial availability and application are limited due to the difficulties of growing large, crack-free single crystals from these fragile materials. This investigation employed aliovalent doping to increase crystal strength while maintaining the optical properties of the crystal. One divalent dopant (Ca2+) was used as a dopant to strengthen CeBr3 without negatively impacting scintillation performance. Ingots containing nominal concentrations of 1.9% of the Ca2+ dopant were grown. Preliminary scintillation measurements are presented for this aliovalently doped scintillator. Ca2+-doped CeBr3 exhibited little or no change in the peak fluorescence emission for 371 nm optical excitation for CeBr3. The structural, electronic, and optical properties of CeBr3 crystals were studied using the density functional theory within the generalized gradient approximation. The calculated lattice parameters are in good agreement with the experimental data. The energy band structures and density of states were obtained. The optical properties of CeBr3, including the dielectric function, were calculated.

Synthesis of solid solution Er{sub 2-x}Ce{sub x}W{sub 3}O{sub 12} and studies of their thermal expansion behavior.  

SciTech Connect

The syntheses and structures of Er{sub 2-x}Ce{sub x}W{sub 3}O{sub 12} were studied. It was found that pure phases could form only for 0.0 {le} x {le} 0.4 and 1.5 {le} x {le} 2.0. Compounds with 0 {le} x {le} 0.4 have the hydrated orthorhombic structure at room temperature and transform to unhydrated orthorhombic one above 135 C whereas samples with 1.5 {le} x {le} 2.0 crystallize in monoclinic structure. Thermal expansion properties of Er{sub 2-x}Ce{sub x}W{sub 3}O{sub 12} were studied with high temperature X-ray powder diffraction. Samples with 0 {le} x {le} 0.4 exhibit negative thermal expansion in temperature range of 200-800 C and higher cerium content leads to more negative thermal expansion coefficient. However, compounds with 1.5 {le} x {le} 2.0 show positive thermal expansion owing to the edge-sharing polyhedra.

Understanding the effect of Sm2O3 and CeO2 promoters on the structure and activity of Rh/Al2O3 catalysts in methane steam reforming  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The role of Sm2O3 and CeO2 promoters on the structural properties and catalytic behavior of Rh/xSm2O3yCeO2Al2O3 catalysts during methane steam reforming (MSR) was investigated. Promoted catalysts showed higher reaction rates per surface Rh atom and improved stability compared to Rh/Al2O3. In situ X-ray absorption revealed that the structure of Rh particles in Rh/Al2O3 changes drastically during MSR, while it was stable in the presence of Sm2O3CeO2. Sintering of the active metal phase was the main cause of deactivation. STEM images showed stronger Rh agglomeration of the unpromoted catalyst with time on stream.

Microscopic nature of inhomogeneous line broadening: Analysis of the excitation-line-narrowing spectra of Cf4+ in CeF4  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Optical transitions between 5f states of tetravalent californium ion doped (1 metal-atom %) into CeF4 exhibit unusually large inhomogeneous broadening. The nature of the inhomogeneous broadening in this system has been studied by using fluorescence line narrowing and excitation line narrowing (ELN). It is shown that the energy distributions of different electronic states of Cf4+ in this system are correlated. In the ELN experiments, reduced excitation linewidth was obtained when selectively monitoring fluorescence emission. A linear relation was observed between the excitation energies of crystal-field states of the G4?5 manifold and the fluorescence wavelength monitored across the inhomogeneous profile of a G6?5F6?7 transition. Analysis of these results by means of a microscopic theory proposed by Laird and Skinner [J. Chem. Phys. 90, 3880 (1989)] has provided insights into the structural properties of this disordered system.

CO chemisorption effects on cerium initial and final states in the core-level photoelectron spectrum of CeIr/sub 2/  

SciTech Connect

Carbon monoxide (CO) adsorption on the mixed-valence compound CeIr/sub 2/ has been studied by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. CO adsorption on this surface is predominantly molecular. We show that changes in the cerium 3d spectrum upon CO chemisorption may be separated into initial- and final-state effects. In the initial state, stabilization of the (Ce)(5d6s)34f1 configuration occurs due to an increase in effective nuclear charge on the cerium atom. This leads to a decrease in f0 intensity in the recorded spectrum. Increased f-electron repulsion in the final state raises the energy of the f2 final-state configuration and causes a 2.2-eV shift to higher binding energy of the 3d5/2f2 peak. The 0.5-eV binding energy shifts of the 3d5/2f1 and 3d3/2f1 peaks along with the 2.2-eV shift of the 3d5/2f2 peak indicate that the f orbitals are quite-sensitive indicators of the surface oxidation state in this compound.

X-ray absorption studies of the local structure and f-level occupancy in CeIr(1-x)Rh(x)In(5)  

SciTech Connect

The CeIr{sub 1-x}Rh{sub x}In{sub 5} series exhibits a range of interesting phenomena, including heavy-fermion superconductivity, non-Fermi liquid behavior, and concomitant antiferromagnetism (AF) and superconductivity (SC). In the low-Rh concentration range (0.1 {ge} x {ge} 0.5), specific heat measurements show a broad anomaly, suggestive of gross phase separation. We have performed x-ray absorption experiments at the Ce L{sub III}, Ir L{sub III}, and Rh K-edges as a function of Rh concentration and temperature. X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) measurements indicate that cerium is close to trivalent in this system, with no measurable change with temperature from 20-300 K, consistent with a heavy-fermion material. Extended x-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) measurements as a function of temperature from all measured edges indicate the local crystal structure of all samples is well ordered, with no gross phase separation observed, even for samples with x = 0.125 and x = 0.25. These results therefore suggest that the anomalous specific heat behavior in the 0.1 {ge} x {ge} 0.5 range have some other explanation, and some possibilities are discussed.

Effects of Ce, Y and Mo Addition on the Stress Accelerated Oxidation of Austenitic Stainless Steel in Oxygenated High Temperature Water  

SciTech Connect

Based upon the recent progress in mechanistic understanding of intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) of austenitic stainless steels in high temperature water in light water reactor (LWR), the effects of Ce, Y, and Mo addition on oxidation kinetics under a tensile stress condition was investigated. Minor impurity of P was also studied. A kind of circumferentially notched tensile specimen was prepared to simulate the crack tip stress field. The notched specimens of different materials studied were applied with an almost constant load in simulated boiling water reactor (BWR) water. The oxidation was examined by the specimen cross section. It was shown that these elements have quite clear effects on the metal oxidation and alloying element distribution in the oxide layer.

Unraveling the Active Site in Copper-Ceria Systems for the Water-Gas Shift Reaction: In Situ Characterization of an Inverse Powder CeO2-x/CuO-Cu Catalyst  

SciTech Connect

An inverse powder system composed of CeO{sub 2} nanoparticles dispersed over a CuO-Cu matrix is proposed as a novel catalyst for the water-gas shift reaction. This inverse CeO{sub 2}/CuO-Cu catalyst exhibits a higher activity than standard Cu/CeO{sub 2} catalysts. In situ synchrotron characterization techniques were employed to follow the structural changes of CeO{sub 2}/CuO-Cu under reaction conditions. Time-resolved X-ray diffraction experiments showed the transformation of CuO to metallic Cu via a Cu{sub 2}O intermediate. Short-order structural changes were followed by pair distribution function analysis and corroborated the results obtained by diffraction. Moreover, X-ray absorption spectroscopy also revealed oxidation state changes from Cu{sup 2+} to Cu{sup 0} and the partial reduction of CeO{sub x} nanoparticles. The activity data obtained by mass spectrometry revealed that hydrogen production starts once the copper has been fully reduced. The strong interaction of ceria and copper boosted the catalytic performance of the sample. The inverse catalyst was active at low temperatures, stable to several reaction runs and to redox cycles. These characteristics are highly valuable for mobile fuel cell applications. The active phases of the inverse CeO{sub 2}/CuO-Cu catalyst are partially reduced ceria nanoparticles strongly interacting with metallic copper. The nature and structure of the ceria nanoparticles are of critical importance because they are involved in processes related to water dissociation over the catalyst surface.

Energy up-conversion and trapping: Dynamics of 5f states of Bk sup 4+ in CeF sub 4  

SciTech Connect

Energy transfer mechanisms of excited 5f states of Bk{sup 4+} (0.05 atom %) in CeF{sub 4} containing circa 0.95 atom % Cf{sup 4+} have been investigated at 4 K. The observed anti-Stokes fluorescence arises from both up-conversion and two-photon excitation. Nonexponential decays of Stokes fluorescence are ascribed to both excitation-excitation annihilation and site-dependent trapping processes and, therefore, are not describable by the Inokuti-Hirayama or exciton annihilation models. Based on the Forster-Dexter energy transfer theory, a new model is developed to fit the observed fluorescence decay data. 16 refs., 3 figs.

Large Area Divertor Temperature Measurements Using A High-speed Camera With Near-infrared FiIters in NSTX  

SciTech Connect

Fast cameras already installed on the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) have be equipped with near-infrared (NIR) filters in order to measure the surface temperature in the lower divertor region. Such a system provides a unique combination of high speed (> 50 kHz) and wide fi eld-of-view (> 50% of the divertor). Benchtop calibrations demonstrated the system's ability to measure thermal emission down to 330 oC. There is also, however, signi cant plasma light background in NSTX. Without improvements in background reduction, the current system is incapable of measuring signals below the background equivalent temperature (600 - 700 oC). Thermal signatures have been detected in cases of extreme divertor heating. It is observed that the divertor can reach temperatures around 800 oC when high harmonic fast wave (HHFW) heating is used. These temperature profiles were fi t using a simple heat diffusion code, providing a measurement of the heat flux to the divertor. Comparisons to other infrared thermography systems on NSTX are made.

Role of metal components in Pd?Cu bimetallic catalysts supported on CeO2 for the oxygen-enhanced water gas shift  

SciTech Connect

Catalytic hydrogen production and CO removal in a post-reforming process are critical for low-temperature fuel cell applications. The present study aims at clarifying the role of metal components in bimetallic catalysts for oxygen-enhanced water gas shift (OWGS), wherein a small amount of O{sub 2} is added to H{sub 2}-rich reformate gas to enhance CO shift. Among CeO{sub 2}-supported bimetallic catalysts, Pd-Cu and Pt-Cu combinations were found to show strong synergetic promoting effect in OWGS, which leads to much higher CO conversion and higher H{sub 2} yield than WGS at low temperature around 250 C. Temperature programmed reduction (TPR) showed strong interaction between Pd and Cu in Pd-Cu/CeO{sub 2} by a single reduction peak in contrast to multiple peaks on monometallic Cu/CeO{sub 2}. Extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) analysis revealed that such bimetallic Pd-Cu and Pt-Cu form alloy nanoparticles, where noble metal is mainly surrounded by Cu atoms. Oxygen storage capacity (OSC) measurements point to higher resistance of Pd-Cu to oxidation indicating that Pd keeps Cu in reduced state in air pulse condition. From kinetic study, Pd in Pd-Cu was found to promote CO shift, rather than CO oxidation by increasing the number of active sites and by suppressing H{sub 2} activation (that is inherent to monometallic Pd), which minimizes both the inhibition effect of H{sub 2} and the loss of H{sub 2} by oxidation in OWGS. Transient response technique revealed that Cu in Pd-Cu enhances desorption of strongly chemisorbed CO{sub 2} on catalyst surface in contrast to very slow CO{sub 2} desorption from surface of monometallic Pd. Thus, the excellent OWGS activity of Pd-Cu catalyst has been attributed to the complementary roles of the two metals for enhancing CO shift, which is realized by its alloy structure and the accompanying strong interaction between metal components.

Radiation hardness of cerium-doped gadolinium silicate Gd2SiO5:Ce against high energy protons, fast and thermal neutrons  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Degradation of Gd2SiO5:Ce in optical transmittance due to proton irradiation was negligibly small below 106 rad, smaller than 2%/cm at 107 rad and large at 108 rad. The radiation hardness of 107 rad against protons is by two orders of magnitude smaller than against low energy ?-rays. Long term spontaneous recovery of the proton-induced damage is not large (1020% of the initial degradation in 84 days). Recovery upon exposure to UV light occurs to some extent. Degradation due to thermal neutrons was negligibly small for a fluence of 1014 n/cm2. No degradation was observed for exposure to fast neutrons of about 1013 n/cm2 during one year in the extracted beam tunnel of proton synchrotron.

CO Oxidation on Inverse CeOx/Cu(111) Catalysts: High Catalytic Activity and Ceria-Promoted Dissociation of O2  

SciTech Connect

A Cu(111) surface displays a low activity for the oxidation of carbon monoxide (2CO + O{sub 2} {yields} 2CO{sub 2}). Depending on the temperature, background pressure of O{sub 2}, and the exposure time, one can get chemisorbed O on Cu(111) or a layer of Cu{sub 2}O that may be deficient in oxygen. The addition of ceria nanoparticles (NPs) to Cu(111) substantially enhances interactions with the O{sub 2} molecule and facilitates the oxidation of the copper substrate. In images of scanning tunneling microscopy, ceria NPs exhibit two overlapping honeycomb-type moire structures, with the larger ones (H{sub 1}) having a periodicity of 4.2 nm and the smaller ones (H{sub 2}) having a periodicity of 1.20 nm. After annealing CeO{sub 2}/Cu(111) in O{sub 2} at elevated temperatures (600-700 K), a new phase of a Cu{sub 2}O{sub 1+x} surface oxide appears and propagates from the ceria NPs. The ceria is not only active for O{sub 2} dissociation, but provides a much faster channel for oxidation than the step edges of Cu(111). Exposure to CO at 550-750 K led to a partial reduction of the ceria NPs and the removal of the copper oxide layer. The CeO{sub x}/Cu(111) systems have activities for the 2CO + O{sub 2} {yields} 2CO{sub 2} reaction that are comparable or larger than those reported for surfaces of expensive noble metals such as Rh(111), Pd(110), and Pt(100). Density-functional calculations show that the supported ceria NPs are able to catalyze the oxidation of CO due to their special electronic and chemical properties. The configuration of the inverse oxide/metal catalyst opens new interesting routes for applications in catalysis.

Influence of Sulfur on the Carbon Deposition in Liquid Hydrocarbon Steam Reforming over CeO2-Al2O3 supported Ni and Rh Catalysts  

SciTech Connect

This study was performed to elucidate the influence of sulfur on the carbon deposition in steam reforming of liquid hydrocarbons over CeO{sub 2}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} supported Ni and Rh catalysts at 800 C. The characteristics of the carbon deposits on the used catalysts after the reactions without and with sulfur were investigated by temperature-programmed oxidation (TPO), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning transmission X-ray microscopy (STXM), temperature-programmed hydrogenation (TPH), X-ray absorption near edge structure (XANES), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Though abundant carbon deposits can accumulate on the pure CeO{sub 2}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} support due to fuel thermal cracking, the addition of Ni or Rh metal greatly reduced the carbon deposition in the sulfur-free reaction. The presence of sulfur increased the carbon deposition on both catalysts, which has a much more significant impact for the Ni catalyst. Carbon XANES study on the used catalysts revealed that graphitic carbon was dominant in the presence of sulfur, while oxidized carbon species (quinone-like carbon, carboxyl and carbonate) prevailed without sulfur. Meanwhile, the formation of carboxyl and carbonate more dramatically dropped on the Ni catalyst than that on the Rh catalyst. Our results strongly suggest that (I) the presence of sulfur can suppress carbon gasification and promote the formation of graphitic carbon on reforming catalysts due mainly to its poisoning effect on metals, and (II) Rh catalyst possesses stronger capability to maintain carbon gasification activity than Ni catalyst in the presence of sulfur.

CeBr3 as a High-Resolution Gamma-Ray Detector  

SciTech Connect

Lanthanum halide (LaBr3:Ce) scintillators have been well-documented as high-resolution gamma-ray detectors that are operated at room temperature. These scintillators have better resolution (<3% at 662 keV) relative to sodium iodide (NaI(Tl)) scintillators (7% at 662 keV), but the naturally occurring radioactive isotope 138La causes self-activity in the crystal that occludes portions of the gamma-ray spectrum. This selfactivity limits the use of LaBr3:Ce in high-sensitivity applications. Cerium, the dopant in the LaBr3:Ce matrix possesses useful scintillation properties, and its selfactivity is on the order of 3750 times less than La; however, Ce has not been fully characterized as the chief component in a scintillation detector. This work investigated Ce as the key scintillation matrix component in a scintillation detector with the hypothesis that CeBr3 promises energy resolution comparable or superior to LaBr3:Ce. The researchers involved with this work believe that CeBr3 may be the answer to obtaining high-temperature, high-resolution spectra with greater sensitivity than LaBr3:Ce.

Magnetism in CePtPb  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We report the behavior of the hexagonal compound CePtPb, which has an antiferromagnetic transition at TN=0.9 K. The magnetic susceptibility is highly anisotropic, with the ratio ?ab?ac extrapolating to the value 65 at TN. The low-temperature magnetization is also anisotropic with Mab saturating to 0.92?BCe atom at B=5 T, where Mc is five times smaller. The anisotropy is due both to low-symmetry crystal fields and to exchange anisotropy, which causes basal plane ferromagnetic fluctuations to develop below T?15 K. Three facts suggest that the magnetic order might coexist with heavy-fermion behavior: heat-capacity data show a linear-in-temperature contribution ??300 mJ/mol K2 in the antiferromagnetic state; the resistivity is quadratic in temperature below TN; and the magnetic entropy is generated very slowly with temperature reaching a value of only 0.7R ln2 at T=2TN. On the other hand, the long high-temperature tail of the heat-capacity data correlates with the ferromagnetic fluctuations above TN; and ac susceptibility measurements under hydrostatic pressure (to 17 kbar) show that TN increases with pressure at an approximate rate 20 mK/kbar, which suggests that CePtPb sits in the small T limit of the Doniach phase diagram; hence heavy-fermion effects may be negligible.

An In-Situ XAS Study of the Structural Changes in a CuO-CeO2/Al2O3 Catalyst during Total Oxidation of Propane  

SciTech Connect

A CuOx-CeOx/Al2O3 catalyst was studied with in-situ transmission Cu K XAS for the total oxidation of propane as model reaction for the catalytic elimination of volatile organic compounds. The local Cu structure was determined for the catalyst as such, after pre-oxidation and after reduction with propane. The catalyst as such has a local CuO structure. No structural effect was observed upon heating in He up to 600 deg. C or after pre-oxidation at 150 deg. C. A full reduction of the Cu2+ towards metallic Cu0 occurred, when propane was fed to the catalyst. The change in local Cu structure during propane reduction was followed with a time resolution of 1 min. The {chi}(k) scans appeared as linear combinations of start and end spectra, CuO and Cu structure, respectively. However, careful examination of the XANES edge spectra indicates the presence of a small amount of additional Cu1+ species.

Wet oxidation of phenol on Ce{sub 1{minus}x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2{minus}{delta}} catalyst  

SciTech Connect

Ce{sub 1{minus}x}Cu{sub x}O{sub 2{minus}{delta}} catalysts with 0.05 < x < 0.20 for catalytic wet oxidation of phenol in aqueous solutions have been synthesized using the coprecipitation method. The three most important synthesis parameters, the concentration of the mixed metal salt solution, the rate of coprecipitant addition and the stirrer speed during coprecipitation, were optimized with central composite design using the catalytic activity as a response function. The catalytic activity strongly depends on stirrer speed during coprecipitation. A high mutual dispersion of copper oxide and ceria, having the average crystallite size of about 9 nm, enhances solid solution formation. The unit cell parameter of ceria decreases when the overall concentration of copper in the catalyst increases, most probably obeying Vegard`s law. The catalysts proved to be very stable in hydrothermal reaction conditions at low pH values. After 5 h of reaction in the semibatch CST reactor less than 100 ppm of Cu was leached out of catalyst samples that were calcined in a flow of air for 2 h above 1033 K, and only a very low quantity of carbonaceous deposits were formed on the surface of the catalysts (0.6 wt%). The kinetics of phenol degradation could be interpreted by an equation valid for homogeneous autocatalytic reactions, in which the rate constant depends linearly on the heterogeneous catalyst (Cu) concentrations. This demonstrates that the reaction proceeds through a heterogeneous-homogeneous radical-branched chain mechanism.

Synthesis of NiO ? Ce 0.8 Sm 0.2 O 1.9 Composite Nanopowders for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

NiO ? Ce 0.8 Sm 0.2 O 1.9 (SDC) composite nanopowders which are being investigated as a promising anode material for intermediate?low temperature solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) were successfully synthesized by hydroxide co?precipitation method. The effects of calcination temperature and time on crystal phase crystallite size average particle size and particle size distribution of the synthesized powders were investigated by means of X?ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). XRD analysis showed that the synthesized powders consisted of two phases NiO and SDC without any other noticeable phase. The NiO and SDC phases were formed after calcining at 500?C. The calcination temperature is the most important factor which affects the crystal phase particle size and particle size distribution. With an increase in the calcination temperature the average particle size of the synthesized powders increased and the particle size distribution became wider. The average particle size of the powders calcined at 600900?C was in the range of 9.839 nm according to the TEM analysis.

Introduction of Artificial Pinning Center into PLD-YBCO Coated Conductor on IBAD and Self-Epitaxial CeO2 Buffered Metal Substrate  

SciTech Connect

In order to fabricate YBa2Cu3O7-x (YBCO) coated conductors with high critical current density Jc in magnetic fields, we fabricated YBCO coated conductors with artificial pinning centers by the pulsed laser deposition (PLD) method on a self epitaxial PLD-CeO2 layer and ion-beam assisted deposition (IBAD)-Gd2Zr2O7 (GZO) buffered Hastelloy tape. Artificial pinning centers were introduced by the PLD deposition using the yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) oxide target (nano-dot method) and YBCO target including YSZ particles (mixed target method). In the experiments using YSZ oxide target, YSZ nano-dots were observed. They were approximately 15 nm in height and 10 nm to 70 nm in diameter. We found that the density of nano-dots was controlled by the number of laser pulses. These samples exhibited higher Jc than YBCO films in magnetic fields. Furthermore, a similar improvement of Jc was observed in the experiments using YBCO target including YSZ particles. TEM observation revealed that columnar nano-structure made of BaZrO3 was formed during YBCO deposition and it was effective for pinning. We call this new epitaxial nano-structure 'bamboo structure' from its anisotropic growth and morphology.

Crystal structure, magnetism and transport properties of Ce{sub 3}Ni{sub 25.75}Ru{sub 3.16}Al{sub 4.1}B{sub 10}  

SciTech Connect

Single crystals of Ce{sub 3}Ni{sub 25.75}Ru{sub 3.16}Al{sub 4.1}B{sub 10} were obtained from a process in which a polycrystalline sample of CeRu{sub 2}Al{sub 2}B was annealed in an excess of a NiIn flux. The initial phase, CeRu{sub 2}Al{sub 2}B, does not recrystallize, instead, crystals of a new phase, Ce{sub 3}Ni{sub 25.75}Ru{sub 3.16}Al{sub 4.1}B{sub 10}, could be isolated once the flux was removed. The title compound crystallizes in the tetragonal space group P4/nmm (No. 129) with a=1139.02(8), c=801.68(6) pm (c/a=0.70) in the Nd{sub 3}Ni{sub 29}Si{sub 4}B{sub 10} structure type. Electrical resistivity measurements reveal metallic behavior with a minimum of 700 ? cm and a small residual resistivity ratio of RRR=1.4 indicating a large amount of disorder scattering. The cerium atoms are either in the 4+ or an intermediate valence state with a valence fluctuation temperature far above room temperature. - Graphical abstract: Single crystals of Ce{sub 3}Ni{sub 25.75}Ru{sub 3.16}A{sub l4.1}B{sub 10} were obtained using a process in which a polycrystalline sample of CeRu{sub 2}Al{sub 2}B was annealed in an excess of a NiIn flux.

Correlation between superconductivity and structural properties under high pressure of iron pnictide superconductor Ce[subscript 0.6]Y[subscript 0.4]FeAsO[subscript 0.8]F[subscript 0.2  

SciTech Connect

We report here the pressure dependence of the electrical resistivity and magnetic susceptibility of polycrystalline Ce{sub 0.6}Y{sub 0.4}FeAsO{sub 0.8}F{sub 0.2} superconductor in the temperature range 4 K to 300 K up to 8 GPa. In-situ high pressure-low temperature x-ray diffraction was performed at 8 K up to 32 GPa using synchrotron x-rays with helium pressure medium. The results show that the applied pressure slightly increases the T{sub c} up to 1 GPa and then it decreases on further pressure increase. The reduction of superconducting transition temperature occurs with a transition to a collapsed tetragonal phase and may be associated with a possible valence change of Ce.

Magnetic manipulation by resistance switching in CeO{sub 2}/PrBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7??}/Pt heterostructure: The role of oxygen vacancies  

SciTech Connect

Pronounced bipolar resistance switching with a good retention property has been observed in CeO{sub 2}/PrBa{sub 2}Cu{sub 3}O{sub 7??}/Pt heterostructure. The low resistance state and high resistance state exhibited distinguished ferromagnetic signals, as compared to the nearly non-magnetic initial state. It is found that the migration of the oxygen vacancies under electric field is mainly responsible for the electric and the magnetic changes. The modified interfacial electronic structure by the oxygen vacancy migration and the trapping/detrapping of the carriers leads to the resistance switching. The exchange interaction of the hydrogen-like orbitals formed around the singly occupied oxygen vacancies in CeO{sub 2} is accounting for the emerged and modulated ferromagnetic signals. Temperature dependence of resistance in the low resistance state follows a variable range hopping law, further confirming that the amount of oxygen vacancies in the CeO{sub 2} layer directly affects the hydrogen-like orbital radius, which determines the strength of the ferromagnetic coupling.

Studies on Ca2+-Doped CeBr3 Scintillating Materials  

SciTech Connect

Despite the outstanding scintillation performance characteristics of cerium tribromide (CeBr3) and cerium-activated lanthanum tribromide (LaBr3:Ce), their commercial availability and application is limited due to the difficulties of growing large, crack-free single crystals from these fragile materials. The objective of this investigation was to employ aliovalent doping to increase crystal strength while maintaining the optical properties of the crystal. One divalent dopant (Ca2+) was investigated as a dopant to strengthen CeBr3 without negatively impacting scintillation performance. Ingots containing nominal concentrations of 1.9% of the Ca2+ dopant were grown. Preliminary scintillation measurements are presented for this aliovalently doped scintillator. Ca2+-doped CeBr3 exhibited little or no change in the peak fluorescence emission for 371 nm optical excitation for CeBr3. The structural, electronic, and optical properties of CeBr3 crystals were investigated using the density functional theory within generalized gradient approximation. The calculated lattice parameters are in good agreement with the experimental data. The energy band structures and density of states were obtained. The optical properties of CeBr3, including the dielectric function, were calculated.

Studies on Cu/CeO{sub 2}: A new NO reduction catalyst  

SciTech Connect

Fine particle and large surface area Cu/CeO{sub 2} catalysts of crystallite sizes in the range of 100--200 {angstrom} synthesized by the solution combustion method have been investigated for NO reduction. Five percent Cu/CeO{sub 2} catalyst shows nearly 100% conversion of NO by NH{sub 3} below 300 C, whereas pure ceria and Zr, Y, and Ca doped ceria show 85--95% NO conversion above 600 C. Similarly NO reduction by CO has been observed over 5% Cu/CeO{sub 2} with nearly 100% conversion below 300 C. Hydrocarbon (n-butane) oxidation by NO to CO{sub 2}, N{sub 2}, and H{sub 2}O has also been demonstrated over this catalyst below 350 C making Cu/CeO{sub 2} a new NO reduction catalyst in the low temperature window of 150--350 C. Kinetics of NO reduction over 5% Cu/CeO{sub 2} have also been investigated. The rate constants are in the range of 1.4 {times} 10{sup 4} to 2.3 {times} 10{sup 4} cm{sup 3}/g s between 170 and 300 C. Cu/CeO{sub 2} catalysts are characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy where Cu{sup 2+} ions are shown to be dispersed on the CeO{sub 2} surface.

Scanning electron and cathodoluminescence imaging of thin film Lu{sub 2}SiO{sub 5}:Ce scintillating materials  

SciTech Connect

Cerium doped lutetium orthosilicate thin films were sputter deposited onto rough and smooth alumina substrates to compare their extrinsic photoluminescence efficiency. To understand the photoluminescence results, scanning electron and cathodoluminescence imaging were performed. The plane view and cross-section images revealed that dark cathodoluminescence regions were correlated with topology in both films, though the mechanisms for the degraded luminescence were different. For the rough films, substrate topology causes localized shadowing of the sputtered species which creates compositional inhomogeneities. The smooth films have protrusions caused by thermally induced stress and the reduced cathodoluminescence intensity is attributed to electron-hole surface recombination.

Long-term evaluation of solid oxide fuel cell candidate materials in a 3-cell generic stack test fixture, part III: Stability and microstructure of Ce-(Mn,Co)-spinel coating, AISI441 interconnect, alumina coating, cathode and anode  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A generic solid oxide fuel cell stack test fixture was developed to evaluate candidate materials and processing under realistic conditions. Part III of the work investigated the stability of Ce-(Mn,Co) spinel coating, AISI441 metallic interconnect, alumina coating, and cell's degradation. After 6000h test, the spinel coating showed densification with some diffusion of Cr. At the metal interface, segregation of Si and Ti was observed, however, no continuous layer formed. The alumina coating for perimeter sealing areas appeared more dense and thick at the air side than the fuel side. Both the spinel and alumina coatings remained bonded. EDS analysis of Cr within the metal showed small decrease in concentration near the coating interface and would expect to cause no issue of Cr depletion. Inter-diffusion of Ni, Fe, and Cr between spot-welded Ni wire and AISI441 interconnect was observed and Cr-oxide scale formed along the circumference of the weld. The microstructure of the anode and cathode was discussed relating to degradation of the top and middle cells. Overall, the Ce-(Mn,Co) spinel coating, alumina coating, and AISI441 steel showed the desired long-term stability and the developed generic stack fixture proved to be a useful tool to validate candidate materials for SOFC.

Hydrogen production by steam reforming of simulated liquefied natural gas (LNG) over mesoporous nickelMalumina (M=Ni, Ce, La, Y, Cs, Fe, Co, and Mg) aerogel catalysts  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Mesoporous nickelMalumina aerogel catalysts (denoted as NiMAE) with different second metal (M=Ni, Ce, La, Y, Cs, Fe, Co, and Mg) were prepared by a single-step solgel method and a subsequent CO2 supercritical drying method. The effect of second metal of mesoporous nickelMalumina aerogel catalysts on their physicochemical properties and catalytic activity for steam reforming of simulated liquefied natural gas (LNG) was investigated. Textural and chemical properties of NiMAE catalysts were strongly influenced by the identity of second metal. Nickel species were highly dispersed on the surface of NiMAE catalysts through the formation of nickel aluminate phase. In the steam reforming of LNG, both LNG conversion and hydrogen yield decreased in the order of NiLaAE>NiCeAE>NiYAE>NiCsAE>NiNiAE>NiFeAE>NiCoAE>NiMgAE. Average nickel diameter of NiMAE catalysts was well correlated with LNG conversion and hydrogen yield over the catalysts. Among the catalysts tested, NiLaAE catalyst exhibited the best catalytic performance due to its smallest average nickel diameter. Furthermore, NiLaAE catalyst exhibited a strong capability of facilitating heat and mass transfer of reactant and product during the steam reforming of LNG. Watergas shift reaction governed the steam reforming reaction over NiLaAE catalyst under the steam-rich reaction condition (steam/carbon>2).

Annual Report RCRA Post-Closure Monitoring and Inspections for CAU 91: Area 3 U-3fi Injection Well, Nevada Test Site, Nevada, for the period October 2000-October 2001  

SciTech Connect

This annual Neutron Soil Moisture Monitoring report provides an analysis and summary for site inspections, meteorological information, and neutron soil moisture monitoring data obtained at the U-3fi Injection Well during the October 2000 to October 2001 period. The U-3fi Injection Well is located in Area 3 of the Nevada Test Site (NTS), Nye County, Nevada. Inspections of the Area 3 U-3fi Injection Well are conducted to determine and document the physical condition of the concrete pad, facilities, and any unusual conditions that could impact the proper operation of the waste disposal unit closure. The objective of the neutron-logging program is to monitor the soil moisture conditions along the 128-meter (m) (420-ft) ER3-3 monitoring well and detect changes that may be indicative of moisture movement in the regulated interval extending between 73 to 82 m (240 to 270 ft) or to detect changes that may be indicative of subsidence within the disposal unit itself.

Theoretical study of half-doped models for manganites: Fragility of CE phase with disorder, two types of colossal magnetoresistance, and charge-ordered states for electron-doped materials  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A comprehensive analysis of half-doped manganites is presented using Monte Carlo simulations applied to the double-exchange model with cooperative Jahn-Teller lattice distortions in two dimensions. A variety of results are reported. In particular (i) The phase diagram is established in the ?-JAF plane, with ? the electron-phonon coupling and JAF the antiferromagnetic exchange between classical t2g spins. The results include standard phases, such as the CE-insulating and FM-metallic regimes, but they also include states, such as a ferromagnetic charge-ordered (CO) orbital-ordered phase originally predicted by Hotta et al. This state is compatible with recent experimental results by Loudon et al. (ii) For realistic couplings, it was observed that the charge disproportionation ? of the CO phase is far from the widely accepted extreme limit ?=0.5 of a 3+/4+ charge separation. A far smaller ? appears more realistic, in agreement with recent experiments by Garcia et al. and Daoud-Aladine et al. (iii) Colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) effects are found in calculations of cluster resistances using the Landauer formalism. This occurs near the ubiquitous first-order phase transitions between the insulating and metallic states. The present result reinforces the previous conjecture that CMR phenomenology exists in two forms: the low-temperature CMR addressed here and the more standard CMR above the Curie temperature. (iv) The CE state is found to be very sensitive to disorder since its long-range order rapidly disappears when quenched disorder is introduced, contrary to the FM state which is more robust. This is also in qualitative agreement with recent experiments by Akahoshi et al. and Nakajima et al. (v) The phase diagram in the half-doped electron doping regime is briefly discussed as well. A charge-ordered state is found, which is the analog of the x=0.5 CE phase. It contains a 3+/2+ charge arrangement at large ?. Numerical results suggest that an approximate symmetry exists between the hole- and electron-doped systems in the large Hund coupling limit.

Performance of Ni/ScSZ cermet anode modified by coating with Gd{sub 0.2}Ce{sub 0.8}O{sub 2} for a SOFC  

SciTech Connect

A Ni/scandia-stabilized zirconia (ScSZ) cermet anode was modified by coating with nano-sized gadolinium-doped ceria (GDC, Gd{sub 0.2}Ce{sub 0.8}O{sub 2}) within the pores of the anode for a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were employed in the anode characterizations. Open circuit voltages (OCVs) increased from 1.027 to 1.078 V, and the maximum power densities increased from 238 to 825 mW/cm{sup 2}, as the operating temperature of a SOFC with 2.0 wt.%GDC-coated Ni/ScSZ anode was increased from 700 to 850 deg. C in humidified hydrogen. The coating of nano-sized Gd{sub 0.2}Ce{sub 0.8}O{sub 2} particle within the pores of the porous Ni/ScSZ anode significantly improved the performance of anode supported cell. Electrochemical impedance spectra (EIS) illustrated that the cell with Ni/ScSZ anode exhibited far greater impedances than the cell with 2.0 wt.%GDC-coated Ni/ScSZ anode. Consequently, 2.0 wt.%GDC-coated Ni/ScSZ anode could be used as a novel anode material for a SOFC due to better electrochemical performance.

Combined effect of chemical pressure and valence electron concentration through the electron-deficient Li substitution on the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system  

SciTech Connect

Four members of the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system have been prepared by high-temperature reaction method and characterized by X-ray diffractions. All compounds crystallize in the orthorhombic Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure (space group Pnma, Pearson code oP16) with bonding interactions for interslab Ge{sub 2} dimers. The Li substitution for rare-earth elements in the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} system leads to a combined effect of the increased chemical pressure and the decreased valance electron concentration (VEC), which eventually results in the structure transformation from the Sm{sub 5}Ge{sub 4}-type with all broken interslab GeGe bond for the parental RE{sub 5}Ge{sub 4} to the Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure for the ternary RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system. Site-preference between rare-earth metals and Li is proven to generate energetically the most favorable atomic arrangements according to coloring-problem, and the rationale is provided using both the size-factor and the electronic-factor related, respectively, to site-volume and electronegativity as well as QVAL values. Tight-binding, linear-muffin-tin-orbital (TB-LMTO) calculations are performed to investigate electronic densities of states (DOS) and crystal orbital Hamilton population (COHP) curves. The influence of reduced VEC for chemical bonding including the formation of interslab Ge{sub 2} dimers is also discussed. The magnetic property measurements prove that the non-magnetic Li substitution leads to the ferromagnetic (FM)-like ground state for Ce{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} and the co-existence of antiferromagntic (AFM) and FM ground states for Sm{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4}. - Graphical abstract: Reported is a combined effect of the chemical pressure and the reduced VEC caused by the smaller monovalent non-magnetic Li substitution for the larger trivalent magnetic rare-earth metals in the RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr, and Sm) system. This results in the structure transformation from the Sm{sub 5}Ge{sub 4}-type to the Gd{sub 5}Si{sub 4}-type structure and the changes in magnetic properties. Display Omitted - Highlights: Four Li-containing intermetallic compounds RE{sub 4}LiGe{sub 4} (RE=La, Ce, Pr and Sm) were synthesized. The combined effect of the chemical pressure and the reduced VEC caused by Li substitution for a rare-earth metal results in the structure transformation. Electronic structures and magnetic properties of title compounds were thoroughly investigated.

Size Effect on Nuclear Gamma-Ray Energy Spectra Acquired by Different Sized CeBr3, LaBr3:Ce, and NaI:Tl Gamma-Ray Detectors  

SciTech Connect

Gamma-ray energy spectra were acquired for different sizes of cerium tribromide (CeBr3), cerium-doped lanthanum tribromide (LaBr3:Ce), and thallium-doped sodium iodide (NaI:Tl) detectors. A comparison was conducted of the energy resolution and detection efficiency of these scintillator detectors for different sizes of detectors. The results of this study are consistent with the observation that for each size detector, LaBr3:Ce offers better resolution than either a CeBr3 or NaI:Tl detector of the same size. In addition, CeBr3 and LaBr3:Ce detectors could resolve some closely spaced peaks in the spectra of several radioisotopes that NaI:Tl could not. As the detector size increased, all three detector materials exhibited higher efficiency, albeit with slightly reduced resolution. Significantly, the very low intrinsic activity of CeBr3 is also demonstrated in this study, which, when combined with energy resolution characteristics for a range of detector sizes, could lead to an improved ability to detect special nuclear materials compared to the other detectors.

Electronic structure and excitations in oxygen deficient CeO2?? from DFT calculations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The electronic structures of supercells of CeO2?? have been calculated within the density functional theory (DFT). The equilibrium properties such as lattice constants, bulk moduli, and magnetic moments are well reproduced by the generalized gradient approximation (GGA). Electronic excitations are simulated by robust total-energy calculations for constrained states with atomic core holes or valence holes. Pristine ceria CeO2 is found to be a nonmagnetic insulator with magnetism setting in as soon as oxygens are removed from the structure. In the ground state of defective ceria, the Ce-f majority band resides near the Fermi level but appears at about 2eV below the Fermi level in photoemission spectroscopy experiments due to final-state effects. We also tested our computational method by calculating threshold energies in Ce-M5 and O-K x-ray absorption spectroscopy and comparing theoretical predictions with the corresponding measurements. Our result that f electrons reside near the Fermi level in the ground state of oxygen-deficient ceria is crucial for understanding the catalytic properties of CeO2 and related materials.

Nature of the quantum spin correlations through the superconducting?normal phase transition in electron-doped superconducting Pr0.88LaCe0.12CuO4  

SciTech Connect

We use neutron scattering and specific heat measurements to relate the response of the spin fluctuations and static antiferromagnetic (AF) order to the superconductivity in the electron-doped high-transition-temperature superconductor, Pr{sub .88}LaCe{sub .12}CuO{sub 4-{delta}} (PLCCO) (T{sub c} = 24 K), as the system is tuned via a magnetic field applied beyond the upper critical field (H{sub c2}) and driven into the normal state. The strength of the collective magnetic excitation commonly termed 'resonance' decreases smoothly with increasing field and vanishes in the normal state, paralleling the behavior of the superconducting condensation energy. The suppression of superconductivity is accompanied by a smooth reduction in the very low energy spin fluctuations, and the concomitant emergence of static AF order. Our results suggest an intimate connection between the resonance and the superconducting condensation energy.

Surprising Coordination Geometry Differences in Ce(IV)- and Pu(IV)-Maltol Complexes  

SciTech Connect

As part of a study to characterize the detailed coordination behavior of Pu(IV), single crystal X-ray diffraction structures have been determined for Pu(IV) and Ce(IV) complexes with the naturally-occurring ligand maltol (3-hydroxy-2-methyl-pyran-4-one) and its derivative bromomaltol (5-bromo-3-hydroxy-2-methyl-pyran-4-one). Although Ce(IV) is generally accepted as a structural analog for Pu(IV), and the maltol complexes of these two metals are isostructural, the corresponding bromomaltol complexes are strikingly different with respect to ligand orientation about the metal ion: All complexes exhibit trigonal dodecahedral coordination geometry but the Ce(IV)-bromomaltol complex displays an uncommon ligand arrangement not mirrored in the Pu(IV) complex, although the two metal species are generally accepted to be structural analogs.

Tunable bluegreen emission phosphor Ca2PO4Cl:Ce3+, Tb3+: Luminescence and energy transfer  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A series of tunable emission phosphors Ca2PO4Cl:Ce3+, Tb3+ are synthesized by a high temperature solid-state method. The emitting color of Ca2PO4Cl:Ce3+, Tb3+ can be adjusted from blue to green with increasing the Tb3+ doping content. The energy transfer from Ce3+ to Tb3+ in Ca2PO4Cl has been validated, and proved to be a resonant type via a dipoledipole interaction. The critical distance of energy transfer is calculated by the concentration quenching method, and about 1.77nm. Ca2PO4Cl:Ce3+, Tb3+ has a broad excitation band in the near ultraviolet range, and produces green emission, therefore, it may have potential application as near ultraviolet convertible phosphor for white light emitting diodes.

Cd doping effects in the heavy-fermion compounds Ce2MIn8 (M=Rh and Ir)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Low-temperature magnetic properties of Cd-doped Ce2MIn8 (M=Rh and Ir) single crystals are investigated. Experiments of temperature-dependent magnetic-susceptibility, heat-capacity, and electrical-resistivity measurements revealed that Cd doping enhances the antiferromagnetic (AFM) ordering temperature from TN=2.8?K (x=0) to TN=4.8?K (x=0.21) for Ce2RhIn8?xCdx and induces long-range AFM ordering with TN=3.8?K (x=0.21) for Ce2IrIn8?xCdx. Additionally, x-ray and neutron magnetic scattering studies showed that Cd-doped samples present below TN a commensurate antiferromagnetic structure with a propagation vector ??=(12,12,0). The resolved magnetic structures for both compounds indicate that the Cd doping tends to rotate the direction of the ordered magnetic moments toward the ab plane. This result suggests that the Cd doping affects the Ce3+ ground-state single-ion anisotropy modifying the crystalline electrical field (CEF) parameters at the Ce3+ site. Indications of CEF evolution induced by Cd doping were also found in the electrical-resistivity measurements. Comparisons between our results and the general effects of Cd doping on the related compounds CeMIn5 (M=Co, Rh, and Ir) confirms the claims that the Cd doping induced electronic tuning is the main effect favoring AFM ordering in these compounds.

Magnetism and superconductivity in RPtSi (R=La, Ce, Nd, and Sm)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Although many studies have been made on the nonmagnetic heavy fermion CePtSi belonging to the ?-ThSi2 structure, to the best of our knowledge no studies have been reported in the other rare-earth members of this series. In this paper, we report our resistivity, magnetization, and heat-capacity studies on NdPtSi and SmPtSi. We have established bulk antiferromagnetic ordering in NdPtSi below 3.8 K and ferromagnetic ordering in SmPtSi below 15 K. The heat-capacity studies show large contribution from the crystal-field effects. We have also established bulk superconductivity below 3.8 K in LaPtSi from resistivity, susceptibility, and heat-capacity studies. A detailed study of the influence of paramagnetic impurities (Nd and Ce) on the superconductivity of LaPtSi has been made. From this study, we are able to show that the superconducting transition temperature (Tc) decreases with the substitution of Nd impurities and this can be explained using Abrikosov and Gorkov theory. On the other hand, Ce impurities show large depression of Tc which we ascribe to the Kondo effect due to Ce aotms with the Kondo temperature, Tk?0.25Tc. The observed data have been analyzed using recent quantum Monte Carlo calculations by Jarrel for superconductors with arbitrary Tk values.

Evolution of low-energy spin dynamics in the electron-doped high-transition-temperature superconductor Pr{sub 0.88}LaCe{sub 0.12}CuO{sub 4-{delta}}  

SciTech Connect

We use inelastic neutron scattering to explore the evolution of the low energy spin dynamics in the electron-doped cuprate Pr{sub 0.88}LaCe{sub 0.12}CuO{sub 4-{delta}} (PLCCO) as the system is tuned from its nonsuperconducting, as-grown antiferromagnetic (AF) state into an optimally doped superconductor (T{sub c}{approx_equal}24 K) without static AF order. The low-temperature, low-energy response of the spin excitations in underdoped samples is coupled to the presence of the AF phase, whereas the low-energy magnetic response for samples near optimal T{sub c} exhibits spin fluctuations surprisingly insensitive to the sample temperature. This evolution of the low-energy excitations is consistent with the influence of a quantum critical point in the phase diagram of PLCCO associated with the suppression of the static AF order. We carried out scaling analysis of the data and discuss the influence of quantum critical dynamics in the observed excitation spectrum.

Probing the Reaction Intermediates for the Water-Gas Shift over Inverse CeOx/Au(111) Catalysts  

SciTech Connect

The water-gas shift (WGS) is an important reaction for the production of molecular H{sub 2} from CO and H{sub 2}O. An inverse CeO{sub x}/Au(1 1 1) catalyst exhibits a very good WGS activity, better than that of copper surfaces or Cu nanoparticles dispersed on a ZnO(0 0 0 {bar 1}) substrate which model current WGS industrial catalysts. In this work we report on intermediates likely to arise during the CO + H{sub 2}O reaction over CeO{sub x}/Au(1 1 1) using soft X-ray photoemission (sXPS) and near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure (NEXAFS). Several potential intermediates including formates (HCOO), carbonates (CO{sub 3}) and carboxylates (HOCO) are considered. Adsorption of HCOOH and CO{sub 2} is used to create both HCOO and CO{sub 3} on the CeO{sub x}/Au(1 1 1) surface, respectively. HCOO appears to have greater stability with desorption temperatures up to 600 K while CO{sub 3} only survives on the surface up to 300 K. On the CeO{sub x}/Au(1 1 1) catalysts, the presence of Ce{sup 3+} leads to the dissociation of H{sub 2}O to give OH groups. We demonstrate experimentally that the OH species are stable on the surface up to 600 K and interact with CO to yield weakly bound intermediates. When there is an abundance of Ce{sup 4+}, the OH concentration is diminished and the likely intermediates are carbonates. As the surface defects are increased and the Ce{sup 3+}/Ce{sup 4+} ratio grows, the OH concentration also grows and both carbonate and formate species are observed on the surface after dosing CO to H{sub 2}O/CeO{sub x}/Au(1 1 1). The addition of ceria nanoparticles to Au(1 1 1) is essential to generate an active WGS catalyst and to increase the production and stability of key reaction intermediates (OH, HCOO and CO{sub 3}).

Nickel deficiency in RENi2-xP2 (RE=La, Ce, Pr). Combined crystallographic and physical property studies  

SciTech Connect

Large single crystals from RENi{sub 2-x}P{sub 2} (RE = La, Ce, Pr) were synthesized from the pure elements using Sn as a metal flux, and their structures were established by X-ray crystallography. The title compounds were confirmed to crystallize in the body-centered tetragonal ThCr{sub 2}Si{sub 2} structure type (space group I4/mmm (No. 139); Pearson's symbol tI10), but with a significant stoichiometry breadth with respect to the transition metal. Systematic synthetic work, coupled with accurate structure refinements indicated strong correlation between the degree of Ni-deficiency and the reaction conditions. For four different PrNi{sub 2-x}P{sub 2} (x {le} 0.5) samples, temperature dependent dc magnetization measurements indicated typical local moment 4f-magnetism and a stable Pr{sup 3+} ground state. Field-dependent heat capacity data confirmed a ferromagnetic order at low temperature, and the variations of T{sub c} with the concentration of Ni defects are discussed. LaNi{sub 2-x}P{sub 2}, as expected was found to be Pauli-like paramagnetic in the studied temperature regime, while the Ce-analog CeNi{sub 2-x}P{sub 2} (x = 0.28(1)) showed the characteristics of a mixed valent Ce{sup 3+}/Ce{sup 4+} system with a possible Kondo temperature on the order of 230 K.

ARPES study of the evolution of band structure and charge density wave properties in RTe3 ( R=Y , La, Ce, Sm, Gd, Tb, and Dy)  

SciTech Connect

We present a detailed angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) investigation of the RTe3 family, which sets this system as an ideal"textbook" example for the formation of a nesting driven charge density wave (CDW). This family indeed exhibits the full range of phenomena that can be associated to CDWinstabilities, from the opening of large gaps on the best nested parts of Fermi surface (up to 0.4 eV), to the existence of residual metallic pockets. ARPES is the best suited technique to characterize these features, thanks to its unique ability to resolve the electronic structure in k space. An additional advantage of RTe3 is that theband structure can be very accurately described by a simple two dimensional tight-binding (TB) model, which allows one to understand and easily reproduce many characteristics of the CDW. In this paper, we first establish the main features of the electronic structure by comparing our ARPES measurements with the linear muffin-tinorbital band calculations. We use this to define the validity and limits of the TB model. We then present a complete description of the CDW properties and of their strong evolution as a function of R. Using simple models, we are able to reproduce perfectly the evolution of gaps in k space, the evolution of the CDW wave vector with R, and the shape of the residual metallic pockets. Finally, we give an estimation of the CDWinteraction parameters and find that the change in the electronic density of states n (EF), due to lattice expansion when different R ions are inserted, has the correct order of magnitude to explain the evolution of the CDW properties.

Synthesis, structural characterization and Mssbauer study of LnV{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} perovskites (Ln = Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho and Er)

Graphical abstract: Mssbauer spectra taken at 200 K for the Y(V{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 0.5})O{sub 3} orthoferrivanadate synthesized by arc-melting. Highlights: ? LnFe{sub 0.5}V{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} were synthesized by the first time for most of the rare-earth elements. ? These orthoferrivanadates crystallize metastably with the perovskite structure. ? Iron and vanadium are trivalent stabilized in these solid solutions. ? The Mssbauer quadrupolar splitting is correlated with the tolerance factor. ? Below 100 K, these perovskites undergo a crystallographic phase transformation. -- Abstract: Perovskites LnV{sub 0.5}Fe{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} (Ln = Y, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho and Er) were synthesized by rapid solidification from arc-melted samples and characterized by the study of their crystal structure and hyperfine properties. These metastable solid solutions crystallized in the Pbnm symmetry, with the iron and vanadium cations randomly distributed in the transition metal octahedral sites. Depending on the lanthanide present at the A site of the perovskite, iron is present with two valences (i.e., Fe{sup 3+} and Fe{sup 2+}). The volume of the unit cell for these perovskites increases linearly with the lanthanide ionic radius, as the perovskite approaches its ideal structure. At room temperature, the quadrupolar splitting of the trivalent paramagnetic Mssbauer component works as an indirect measurement for the Goldshmidt tolerance factor. Close to or below 100 K, these perovskites undergo a crystallographic phase transformation, probably due to orbital ordering of the V{sup 3+} cations, originating two different magnetic iron sites.
