DIFFERENCES AND SIMILARITIES IN ANDRA'S ASSESSMENT OF ACTIVITIES CARRIED OUT BY RADIOACTIVE WASTE GENERATORS AND AFFECTING THE QUALITY OF IL-LL SHORT-LIVED WASTE PACKAGES AND HL-IL LONG-LIVED WASTE PACKAGES  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In both cases of packages for either low-level and intermediate-level short-lived (LL-IL/SL) or high-level and intermediate-level long-lived (HL-IL/LL) radioactive waste, Andra has defined a quality reference system, manages it, follows up its appropriate implementation in production plants and verifies its effectiveness in production. The purpose of such a reference system is to ensure, in the first case, that waste packages comply with the Centre de l'Aube's acceptance criteria and, in the second case, that the characteristics submitted by the waste generators to Andra as input data for the deep geological repository project reflect the actual production conditions. In that context, the three management steps of the quality reference system include differences due to the fact that HL-IL/SL packages have not been submitted yet to any technical acceptance criterion. Compliance with any such criterion should be the subject of a characterization report during the qualification phase and of a examination during the verification phase. The management of the quality reference system also involves similarities that facilitate the joint work carried out by Andra with the waste generators, especially in the facilities where both package types are produced.

Vi brationcûupled thrûugh mechanical sy,stems, such as magnet suppûrts, beam tube supports, and other paths can cause deterioration of the particle beam. There are two sources of vibration: external, or far field, which is generated external to the APS site and internal, or near field, which is generated on site and associated with operation of the facility. Internal vibration sources can be controlled or minimized using good design practices to eliminate or reduce vibration amplitudes of machinery and equipment.

Ti Plasmid

Ti Plasmid Ti Plasmid Name: Dixenia Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: What can you tell me about the Ti Plasmid? Replies: This plasmid is named for a plasmid found in a bacteria called Agrobacter tumefaciens. It causes "plant cancer" or what are known as galls. They are little tumors in which the bacteria can grow and live in the plant. Ti stands for tumor inducing. The bacterium gets into the plant through some kind of wound, ie. a scratch. It injects its plasmid into a plant cell and the plasmid inserts its DNA into the plant's DNA. Then the DNA directs the plant to make a hollow tumor where the bacteria can live. Scientists have taken advantage of this plant's ability to insert foreign DNA into a plant. They take the genes out of the plasmid that cause galls, and insert genes of interest, ie. genes for pest resistance and let the plasmid carry those genes into the plant. The plant will start making the product you want. You may have seen a picture of a tobacco plant glowing because firefly genes for glowing were inserted into the plant. They did this so they could know if the gene had made it into the plant. Once they are sure the gene they want has made it into the plant, they clone the plant cells. By the way, plant tissue culture is a procedure that is very common and has been done for years, this is not the same as cloning animals.

Elemental characterization of LL-MA radioactive waste packages with the associated particle technique  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and National Radioactive Waste Management Agency (ANDRA) are conducting an R and D program to improve the characterization of long-lived and medium activity (LL-MA) radioactive waste packages with analytical methods and with non-destructive nuclear measurements. This paper concerns fast neutron interrogation with the associated particle technique (APT), which brings 3D information about the waste material composition. The characterization of volume elements filled with iron, water, aluminium, and PVC in bituminized and fibre concrete LL-MA waste packages has been investigated with MCNP [1] and MODAR data analysis software [2]. APT provides usable information about major elements presents in the volumes of interest. However, neutron scattering on hydrogen nuclei spreads the tagged neutron beam out of the targeted volume towards surrounding materials, reducing spatial selectivity. Simulation shows that small less than 1 L targets can be characterised up to the half-radius of a 225 L bituminized drum, the matrix of which is very rich in hydrogen. Deeper characterization in concrete is possible but limited by counting statistics due to photon attenuation in this dense matrix and, unless large inspection volumes are considered, by the lack of spatial selectivity of the tagged neutron beam due to neutron scattering.

Oriented Event Shapes at N3LL + O(as^2)  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We analyze oriented event-shapes in the context of Soft-Collinear Effective Theory (SCET) and in Fixed-Order perturbation theory. Oriented event-shapes are distributions of event-shape variables which are differential on the angle theta_T that the thrust axis forms with the electron-positron beam. We show that at any order in perturbation theory and for any event shape, only two angular structures can appear: F_0 = 3/8(1 + cos^2 theta_T) and F_1 = (1 - 3cos^2 theta_T). When integrating over theta_T to recover the more familiar event-shape distributions, only F_0 survives. The validity of our proof goes beyond perturbation theory, and hence only these two structures are present at the hadron level. The proof also carries over massive particles. Using SCET techniques we show that singular terms can only arise in the F_0 term. Since only the hard function is sensitive to the orientation of the thrust axis, this statement applies also for recoil-sensitive variables such as Jet Broadening. We carry out resummation at N3LL of singular terms for Thrust, Heavy-Jet Mass, the sum of the Hemisphere Masses and C-parameter. We also compute the Fixed-Order distributions for these event-shapes at O(as) analytically and at O(as^2) with the program Event2.

Observational evidence for composite grains in an AGB outflow: MgS in the extreme carbon star LL Peg  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The broad 30 \\mu m feature in carbon stars is commonly attributed to MgS dust particles. However, reproducing the 30 \\mu m feature with homogeneous MgS grains would require much more sulfur relative to the solar abundance. Direct gas-phase condensation of MgS occurs at a low efficiency. Precipitation of MgS on SiC precursor grains provides a more efficient formation mechanism, such that the assumption of homogeneous MgS grains may not be correct. Using a Monte Carlo-based radiative transfer code, we aim to model the 30 \\mu m feature of the extreme carbon star LL Peg with MgS dust particles. We find that for LL Peg this modeling is insensitive to the unknown MgS optical properties at \\lambda thermal contact with amorphous carbon and SiC, the amount of MgS required to reproduce the strength of 30 \\mu m feature agrees with the solar abundance of sulfur, thereby resolving the reported MgS mass problem. We conclude that MgS is a valid candidate to be the carrier of the 3...

Synthesis and Analysis of TiO2-Oligonucleotide Hybrid Nanoparticles Synthesis and Analysis of TiO2-Oligonucleotide Hybrid Nanoparticles New developments in nanotechnology offer the creation of chemical-biological hybrid nanocomposites, which can be introduced into cells to initiate intracellular processes or biochemical reactions. Researchers from Northwestern University Medical Center (Chicago, IL) and Argonne National Laboratory synthesized TiO2-oligonucleotide nanocomposites made of DNA oligonucleotides attached to 45-Å TiO2 nanoparticles and tested them by using the 2-ID-E x-ray beamline at the X-ray Operations and Research sector 2 of the APS. A key benefit of nanocomposites is that they could advance medical biotechnology and open new doors in chemistry and materials sciences.

Transfer of TiN/Ti/Ag metallization research  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A simple technology for manufacturing extremely stable silicon solar cells is described. The process uses a sputtering technique to reactively deposit high quality TiN films to be used as diffusion barrier layers in metallization systems. The deposition parameters have been optimized to yield films with low-stress and with resistivities as low as 50..mu.. ohm-cm. The TiN films act as an excellent metal diffusion barrier layer below the contact grid-lines, and also upon controlled oxidation as a good anti-reflection coating of TiO/sub 2/ in the active area of the solar cell. Such a unique and dual application of the TiN layer considerably simplifies the fabrication of the cells. Cells so prepared are found to be stable with no degradation in their electrical performance after heat treatments up to 600/sup 0/C for 15 minutes. The application of TiN films in obtaining stable ohmic contacts to GaAs has also been investigated. Ohmic contacts to p-type GaAs have been formed with GaAs/Pt(mG)/TiN/Ag system, which possess low contact resistivity stable up to 550/sup 0/C heat treatments.

Pure rotational spectra of TiO and TiO_2 in VY Canis Majoris  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report the first detection of pure rotational transitions of TiO and TiO_2 at (sub-)millimeter wavelengths towards the red supergiant VY CMa. A rotational temperature, T_rot, of about 250 K was derived for TiO_2. Although T_rot was not well constrained for TiO, it is likely somewhat higher than that of TiO_2. The detection of the Ti oxides confirms that they are formed in the circumstellar envelopes of cool oxygen-rich stars and may be the "seeds" of inorganic-dust formation, but alternative explanations for our observation of TiO and TiO_2 in the cooler regions of the envelope cannot be ruled out at this time. The observations suggest that a significant fraction of the oxides is not converted to dust, but instead remains in the gas phase throughout the outflow.

The IL-9 receptor gene (IL9R): Genomic structure, chromosomal localization in the pseudoautosomal region of the long arm of sex chromosomes, and identification of IL9R pseudogenes at 9qter, 10pter, 16pter, 18pter  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Cosmids containing the human IL-9 receptor (R) gene (IL9R) have been isolated from a genomic library using the IL9R cDNA as a probe. We have shown that the human IL9R gene is composed of 11 exons and 10 introns, stretching over {approx} 17 kb, and is located within the pseudoautosomal region of the Xq and Yq chromosome, in the vicinity of the telomere. Analysis of the 5` flanking region revealed multiple transcription initiation sites as well as potential binding motifs for AP1, AP2, AP3, Sp1, and NF-kB, although this region lacks a TATA box. Using the human IL9R cosmid as a probe to perform fluorescence in situ hybridization, additional signals were identified in the subtelomeric regions of chromosomes 9q, 10p, 16p, and 18p. IL9R homologs located on chromosomes 9 and 18 were partially characterized, while those located on chromosomes 16 and 10 were completely sequenced. Although they are similiar to the IL9R gene ({approx} 90% identity), none of these copies encodes a functional receptor: none of them contains sequences homologous to the 5` flanking region or exon 1 of the IL9R gene, and the remaining ORFs have been inactivated by various point mutations and deletions. Taken together, our results indicate that the IL9R gene is located at Xq28 and Yq12, in the long arm pseudoautosomal region, and that four IL9R pseudogenes are located on 9q34, 10p15, 16p13.3 and 18p11.3, probably dispersed as the result of translocations during evolution. 42 refs., 6 figs., 3 tabs.

Optimization of Ti addition in Fe for Fe-Ti-N thin films  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In this work we studied the magnetic and structural properties of Fe{sub 1-x}Ti{sub x}(x=0, 0.02, 0.05, 0.07) thin films prepared with dc-magnetron sputtering. It was found that the inter-atomic spacing increases as the amount of Ti is increased indicating that Ti is getting dissolved substitutionally in Fe lattice. We found that the addition of 5% Ti is best suited for its usage in Fe-Ti-N alloys.

Blockage of IL-6 secretion in glia by lead and mercury  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Mercury (Hg) and lead (Pb) are toxic to the development and function of the central nervous system (CNS). Interleukin-6 (IL 6) produced by astroglia protects neurons from damage in many progressive degenerative disorders. IL-6 secretion is chaperoned by a 78 kD glucose-regulated protein (GRP78), which is an ER-chaperone protein involved in protein folding, assembly, and trafficking. We hypothesized that Pb and Hg could target GRP78 and thereby block IL-6 secretion from astroglia. In this report, we constructed an IL-6-EGFP chimera and transiently transfected rat C6 glioma cells and rat primary astroglia. IL-6-EGFP signal in transfected cultures exposed to Pb, Hg, or anti-oligos against GRP78 was detected with a bio-image fluorescence microscope. Data of the bio-image analysis showed that the retention of IL-6-EGFP in both astroglia and C6 cells transfected with IL-6-EGFP was at an undetectable level. However, the IL-6-EGFP signal in these cultures, while exposed to Pb (0-10 ?M) or Hg (0-10 ?M) for 24 hours, apparently increased, suggesting that Pb or Hg could block IL-6 secretion from astroglia. Furthermore, when these transfected cultures were exposed to anti-oligos against GRP78, as expected, the retention of IL-6-EGFP within the cultures increased. In order to quantify the increase of IL-6-EGFP retention, we used ELISA to detect IL-6 levels in the medium of non-transfected astroglia exposed to Pb (0-100 ?M) and Hg (0-10 ?M). Data showed that IL-6 levels in the medium decreased when the primary astrocyte cultures were exposed to Pb or Hg, suggesting that the increased retention results in part from a decrease in IL-6 secretion. We used an immunocytochemistry assay as an additional approach for quantifying IL-6 amounts of cells treated or not treated with metals. The immunocytochemistry data concurred with the ELISA findings. These data, together with our previous studies, suggest that Pb and Hg may target GRP78, thereby reducing the amount of IL-6 secreted from astroglia. The decrease in IL-6 secretion prevents this cytokine from doing its job of protecting and restoring neighboring neural tissue.

Superelastic NiTi (51.0 at% Ni) with 0, 10 and 20 vol% TiC particles were deformed under uniaxial compression as neutron diffraction spectra were simultaneously obtained. The experiments yielded in-situ measurements of the thermoelastic stress-induced transformation. A detailed Rietveld determination is made of the phase fractions and the evolving strains in the reinforcing TiC particles and the austenite as it transforms to martensite on loading (and its subsequent back transformation on unloading). These strains are used to shed light on the phenomenon of load transfer in composites where the matrix undergoes a stress-induced phase transformation.

Structural comparison and chromosomal localization of the human and mouse IL-13 genes  

SciTech Connect

The genomic structure of the recently described cytokine IL-13 has been determined for both human and mouse genes. The nucleotide sequence of a 4.6-kb DNA segment of the human gene is described. The human IL-13 gene (IL 13) occurs as a single copy in the haploid genome and maps to human chromosome 5. A 4.3-kb DNA fragment of the mouse IL-13 gene (Il 13) has been sequenced and found to occur as a single copy, mapping to mouse chromosome 11. Intrachromosomal mapping studies revealed that both genes contain four exons and three introns and show a high degree of sequence identify throughout their length. Potential recognition sequences for transcription factors that are present in the 5'-flanking region and are conserved between both genes include IFN-responsive elements, binding sites for AP-1, AP-2, and AP-3, an NF-lL 6 site, and a TATA-like sequence. Both genes map to chromosomal locations adjacent to genes encoding other cytokines, including IL-3, GM-CSF, IL-5, and IL-4 suggesting that IL-13 is another member of this cytokine gene family that may have arisen by gene duplication. 26 refs., 5 figs., 3 tabs.

Ionizing radiation induces IL-6-production by human fibroblasts involving activation of nuclear factor-. kappa. B  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The authors report that human lung fibroblasts respond to X-ray treatment with release of interleukin (IL) -6. Synthesis of IL-6 upon ionizing radiation is preceded by an increase of IL-6 transcript levels resulting from transcriptional activation of the IL-6 gene. Analysis of deleted fragments of the IL-6 promoter revealed that transcriptional induction of the IL-6 promoter is due to enhanced binding activity of the transcription factor NF-kB. Although AP-1 does not participate in the rapid induction of the IL-6 promoter its binding activity is also enhanced upon XRT. In contrast to binding kinetics observed with NF-kB, AP-1 binding upon XRT. In contrast to binding kinetics observed with NF-kB- and the AP-1 recognition sequence, conferred inducibility by XRT to a heterologous promoter, with reporter gene activity being maximal 24 hours or 48 hours upon XRT, respectively. Sequential activation of two distinct transcription factors might thus contribute to synchronize transcriptional activation of different genes participating in the X-ray response.

INVITED REVIEW On the Role of sIL-2R Measurements in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Cancers  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A soluble IL-2 receptor (sIL-2R) is a circulating form of a membrane receptor localized on lymphoid and some cancer cells. The biological function of sIL-2R has not been completely understood. Substantially, it seems to reflect T-lymphocyte activation in diseases of different pathology. Moreover, the soluble receptor has been considered, at least in part, responsible for unsuccessful immunotherapy with IL-2 in cancers. Several lines of evidence indicate sIL-2R measurements to be useful in determining disease progress and prognosis. This review summarizes current knowledge on the sIL-2R behavior in RA and solid cancers of varied etiology.

A Review Corrosion of TI Grade 7 and Other TI Alloys in Nuclear Waste Repository Environments  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Titanium alloy degradation modes are reviewed in relation to their performance in repository environments. General corrosion, localized corrosion, stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen induced cracking, microbially influenced corrosion, and radiation-assisted corrosion of Ti alloys are considered. With respect to the Ti Grade 7 drip shields selected for emplacement in the repository at Yucca Mountain, general corrosion, hydrogen induced cracking, and radiation-assisted corrosion will not lead to failure within the 10,000 year regulatory period; stress corrosion cracking (in the absence of disruptive events) is of no consequence to barrier performance; and localized corrosion and microbially influenced corrosion are not expected to occur. To facilitate the discussion, Ti Grades 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 12, 16, 17, 18, and 24 are included in this review.

Synthesis of CdSe -- TiO2 Nanocomposites and Their Applications to TiO2 Sensitized Solar Cells  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

CdSe-TiO{sub 2} nanocomposites were synthesized via aminolysis of Ti-oleate complexes in the presence of CdSe nanocrystals, and their application as sensitizers for TiO{sub 2} solar cells was investigated. The formation of CdSe-TiO{sub 2} nanocomposites was confirmed using transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. The emission spectrum of CdSe-TiO{sub 2} nanocomposites revealed photoinduced charge separation at the CdSe-TiO{sub 2} interface of the composite. The photocurrent-voltage properties of CdSe-TiO{sub 2}-sensitized TiO{sub 2} particle films compared favorably with those of CdSe-sensitized TiO{sub 2} films. Evidence was also found indicating that the TiO{sub 2} component of the composite protects CdSe against degradation during film annealing.

ST/EL and ST/CV services for TI2 & TI8 LHC injection tunnels  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper describes the ST/EL and ST/CV services for TI2 & TI8 LHC injection tunnels. The cooling and ventilation part describes the requirements for design and installation of more than 10 km of pipeline that is going to be laid down in the tunnels. Main operating parameters as well as manufacture procedures are explained. Preliminary work schedule with the cost estimate is also presented. Electrical power will be distributed from the LHC side and the SPS side for the machine and the general services. All power converters will be installed on surface buildings. The link between the main bend converters and the main bend magnets will be realised with water-cooled cables. Rest of the magnets will be cabled by using conventional copper and aluminium cables. Due to long lengths of the injection tunnels a dry 18kV transformer will be installed in TJ8 to serve the general services for TI8. The same will apply to TI2 by installing a transformer at the bottom of the PMI2 shaft.

The influence of FeTi and NiTi intermetallide additions on high-temperature oxidation of permalloy alloy  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

As a rule powder metallurgy Permalloy alloys are used in production of parts for electronic instruments. For the purpose of controlling the magnetic and electrical properties and also the wear (in the case of production of magnetic heads) and corrosion resistance appropriate additions of metals or such compounds as carbides and oxides are added to the alloy. In this work use of FeTi and NiTi intermetallides produced by reaction sintering of powders of pure metals in a protective atmosphere as alloying additions to Permalloy is recommended. The size of the original powders is less than 100 {mu}m. For reaction sintering at temperature 50{degrees}C above the eutectic temperature in the Ti-TiFe and TiNi-Ni systems was selected. The contents of titanium, iron, and oxygen in the FeTi alloy is 51.9, 45.7, and 2.4 wt.%, respectively, and of titanium, nickel, and oxygen in the NiTi alloy 59.6, 31.9, and 4.6 wt.%. High-temperature oxidation in air up to 1300{degrees}C with a rate of change in temperature of 15{degrees}C of type 78N Permalloy with additions of FeTi and NiTi alloys was investigated with use of methods of differential thermal and differential thermogravimetric analyses on an OD-103 derivatograph under nonisothermal conditions. The reaction products were studied by x-ray diffraction phase analysis on a DRON-3 instrument in CoK{sub {alpha}}-radiation. Pure 78N alloy powder with a composition of 78.1% Ni + 19.3% Fe (specimen 1) and also with additions of 1% FeTi (specimen 2) and 1% NiTi (specimen 3) were subjected to oxidation.

Differential transcriptional regulation of IL-8 expression by human airway epithelial cells exposed to diesel exhaust particles  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Exposure to diesel exhaust particles (DEP) induces inflammatory signaling characterized by MAP kinase-mediated activation of NFkB and AP-1 in vitro and in bronchial biopsies obtained from human subjects exposed to DEP. NFkB and AP-1 activation results in the upregulation of genes involved in promoting inflammation in airway epithelial cells, a principal target of inhaled DEP. IL-8 is a proinflammatory chemokine expressed by the airway epithelium in response to environmental pollutants. The mechanism by which DEP exposure induces IL-8 expression is not well understood. In the current study, we sought to determine whether DEP with varying organic content induces IL-8 expression in lung epithelial cells, as well as, to develop a method to rapidly evaluate the upstream mechanism(s) by which DEP induces IL-8 expression. Exposure to DEP with varying organic content differentially induced IL-8 expression and IL-8 promoter activity human airway epithelial cells. Mutational analysis of the IL-8 promoter was also performed using recombinant human cell lines expressing reporters linked to the mutated promoters. Treatment with a low organic-containing DEP stimulated IL-8 expression by a mechanism that is predominantly NFkB-dependent. In contrast, exposure to high organic-containing DEP induced IL-8 expression independently of NFkB through a mechanism that requires AP-1 activity. Our study reveals that exposure to DEP of varying organic content induces proinflammatory gene expression through multiple specific mechanisms in human airway epithelial cells. The approaches used in the present study demonstrate the utility of a promoter-reporter assay ensemble for identifying transcriptional pathways activated by pollutant exposure.

Superhydrophilic TiO2 surface without photocatalytic activation  

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

Superhydrophilic TiO2 surface without photocatalytic activation Superhydrophilic TiO2 surface without photocatalytic activation Title Superhydrophilic TiO2 surface without photocatalytic activation Publication Type Journal Article Year of Publication 2010 Authors Zormpa, Vasileia, Xiaobo Chen, and Samuel S. Mao Journal Applied Physics Letter Volume 96 Issue 9 Date Published 12/2009 Abstract Since the discovery of extreme surface wetting phenomenon induced by ultraviolet photocatalysis, TiO2 has become the material of choice for environmental friendly applications such as self-cleaning coatings. Nevertheless, it remains a significant challenge to realize surfaces exhibiting persistent superhydrophilicity but without the need of external stimuli. We report a bioinspired TiO2 nanostructure that shows extreme superhydrophilicity without the need of light activation, and with stability against successive wetting-dewetting cycles. This ultimate TiO2 wetting surface exhibits high transmittance from near ultraviolet to the infrared, thus enabling practical antifogging technologies where transparency is critical.

Native SrTiO3 (001) surface layer from resonant Ti L2,3 reflectance spectroscopy  

SciTech Connect

We quantitatively model resonant Ti L2,3 reflectivity Rs,p(q, hn) from several SrTiO3 (001) single crystals having different initial surface preparations and stored in ambient conditions before and between measurements. All samples exhibit unexpected 300 K Rs(hn) - Rp(hn) anisotropy corresponding to weak linear dichroism and tetragonal distortion of the TiO6 octahedra indicating a surface layer with properties different from cubic SrTiO3. Oscillations in Rs(q) confirm a ubiquitous surface layer 2-3 nm thick that evolves over a range of time scales. Resonant optical constant spectra derived from Rs,p(hn) assuming a uniform sample are refined using a single surface layer to fit measured Rs(q). Differences in surface layer and bulk optical properties indicate that the surface is significantly depleted in Sr and enriched in Ti and O. While consistent with the tendency of SrTiO3 surfaces toward non-stoichiometry, this layer does not conform simply to existing models for the near surface region and apparently forms via room temperature surface reactions with the ambient. This new quantitative spectral modeling approach is generally applicable and has potential to study near-surface properties of a variety of systems with unique chemical and electronic sensitivities.

Self-Organized Amorphous TiO2 Nanotube Arrays on Porous Ti Foam for Rechargeable Lithium and Sodium Ion Batteries  

SciTech Connect

Self-organized amorphous TiO2 nanotube arrays (NTAs) were successfully fabricated on both Ti foil and porous Ti foam through electrochemical anodization techniques. The starting Ti foams were fabricated using ARCAM s Electron Beam Melting (EBM) technology. The TiO2 NTAs on Ti foam were used as anodes in lithium ion batteries; they exhibited high capacities of 103 Ahcm-2 at 10 Acm-2 and 83 Ahcm-2 at 500 Acm-2, which are two to three times higher than those achieved on the standard Ti foil, which is around 40 Ahcm-2 at 10 Acm-2 and 24 Ahcm-2 at 500 Acm-2, respectively. This improvement is mainly attributed to higher surface area of the Ti foam and higher porosity of the nanotube arrays layer grown on the Ti foam. In addition, a Na-ion half-cell composed of these NTAs anodes and Na metal showed a self-improving specific capacity upon cycling at 10 Acm-2. These results indicate that TiO2 NTAs grown on Ti porous foam are promising electrodes for Li-ion or Na-ion rechargeable batteries.

Compton Profile Study of Intermetallic Ti{sub 3}Al  

SciTech Connect

The Compton scattering measurement on intermetallic alloy Ti{sub 3}Al is reported in this work. The measurement is made using 59.54 keV gamma-rays from Am{sup 241} source. Theoretical calculation of Compton profile is also performed employing CRYSTAL code within the framework of density functional theory to compare with the measurement. The theoretical profile of the alloy is also synthesized following the superposition model taking the published Compton profiles of elemental solids from the APW method. The experimental study of charge transfer in the alloys has also been done by performing the experimental Compton profile measurements on Ti and Al following the superposition model and charge transfer from Al to Ti is clearly seen on the alloy formation.

Fabrication and thermoelectric properties of fine-grained TiNiSn compounds  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Nearly single-phased TiNiSn half-Heusler compound thermoelectric materials were synthesized by combining mechanical alloying (MA) and spark plasma sintering (SPS) in order to reduce its thermal conductivity by refining the grain sizes. Although TiNiSn compound powders were not synthesized directly via MA, dense bulk samples of TiNiSn compound were obtained by the subsequent SPS treatment. It was found that an excessive Ti addition relative to the TiNiSn stoichiometry is effective in increasing the phase purity of TiNiSn half-Heusler phase in the bulk samples, by compensating for the Ti loss caused by the oxidation of Ti powders and MA processing. The maximum power factor value obtained in the Ti-compensated sample is 1720 muW m{sup -1} K{sup -2} at 685 K. A relatively high ZT value of 0.32 is achieved at 785 K for the present undoped TiNiSn compound polycrystals. - Graphical abstract: Nearly single-phased TiNiSn-based half-Heusler compound polycrystalline materials with fine grains were fabricated by combining mechanical alloying (MA) and spark plasma sintering (SPS).

Snapshots of the IL-4 Receptor Ternary Complexes: An Opportunity to  

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

Snapshots of the IL-4 Receptor Ternary Snapshots of the IL-4 Receptor Ternary Complexes: An Opportunity to Visualize the Basis of Cytokine Receptor Pleiotropy in the Immune System Cytokines are a group of proteins and peptides that are employed in complex multi-cellular organisms as signaling compounds produced by individual cells to transmit information from one cell to another. The distances across which these cytokine signals may travel varies from within the neighborhood of a tissue or organ to remote tissues far away from the cytokine source via the blood. They are variously named as interleukins, lymphokines, and chemokines as well as other "factors" and with the names based upon the presumed function at the time of discovery. These cytokines act by binding to a cell surface receptor in either of two ways. In the first case a cytokine binds the extracellular domain of a receptor and recruits additional receptors where a receptor is composed of three domains: extracellular ligand binding domain, a single trans-membrane helix domain and an intracellular domain; in this case, cytokine binding and subsequent extracellular domain rearrangements change the spacing and orientation of the intracellular domains resulting in signal transduction across the cell membrane in a deliberate manner. In the second case a cytokine binds to a multi-spanning transmembrane protein causing movements within the transmembrane region, which conveys the signal more directly across the membrane, where this latter mechanism is beyond the scope of our research results. Due to their central role in the immune system, cytokines are involved in a variety of immunological, inflammatory, and infectious diseases. When the body is fighting pathogens, cytokines activate and recruit immune cells to travel to the site of infection, for example. These cytokine-mediated processes are known to go awry in some diseases.

A theoretical investigation on photocatalytic oxidation on the TiO{sub 2} surface  

SciTech Connect

The TiO{sub 2} photocatalytic oxidation mechanism was theoretically investigated by using long-range corrected time-dependent density functional theory (LC-TDDFT) with a cluster model of the anatase TiO{sub 2}(001) surface. We found that LC-TDDFT with the cluster model quantitatively reproduces the photoexcitations of the TiO{sub 2} surface by calculating the electronic spectra of a clean TiO{sub 2} surface and one with oxygen defects. We calculated the electronic spectra of a molecularly adsorbed TiO{sub 2} surface for the adsorptions of phenol, methanol, and methane molecules as typical organic molecules. We obtained the surprising result that the main peak of the phenol-adsorbed TiO{sub 2} surface, which overlaps with the main peak of the clean TiO{sub 2} surface, corresponds to charge transfers from the phenol molecule to the TiO{sub 2} surface. This indicates that the TiO{sub 2} photocatalytic oxidation proceeds through direct charge transfer excitation from the substrate molecules to the TiO{sub 2} surface. In contrast, we found slight and no charge transfer for methanol and methane adsorption, respectively, in agreement with the experimental findings for their reactivities. In light of these results, we propose a new mechanism for heterogeneous TiO{sub 2} photocatalytic oxidations.

Current Status of Ti PM: Progress, Opportunities and Challenges  

SciTech Connect

Utilization of titanium components made by powder metallurgy methods has had limited acceptance largely due to the high cost of titanium (Ti) powder. There has been renewed interest in lower cost powder and several Ti reduction methods that produce a particulate product show promise. This talk summarizes work done at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to consolidate these lower cost powders into mill products. Press and sinter consolidation, hot isostatic pressing (HIP) and direct roll consolidation to make sheet have been explored. The characteristics of the consolidated products will be described as a function of the consolidation parameters.

Tribological behavior of NiTi alloy against 52100 steel and WC at elevated temperatures  

SciTech Connect

The dry tribological behavior of a Ti-50.3 at.% Ni alloy at temperatures of 25 deg. C, 50 deg. C and 200 deg. C was studied. The wear tests were performed on a high temperature pin-on-disk tribometer using 52100 steel and tungsten carbide pins. The worn surfaces of the NiTi alloy were examined by scanning electron microscope. The results showed that in the wear tests involving steel pins, the wear rate of the NiTi decreased as the wear testing temperature was increased. However, for the NiTi/WC contact, a reverse trend was observed. There was also a large decrease in the coefficient of friction for the NiTi/steel contact with increasing wear testing temperature. The formation of compact tribological layers could be the main reason for the reduction of the wear rate and coefficient of friction of the NiTi/steel contact at higher wear testing temperatures.

Characterization of the Transient Response of the ILS with One Module Installed to Heatup Changes in Power Level and Cooldown  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report provides documentation of the initial startup and testing of the first electrolysis module in the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) High Temperature Steam Electrolysis Integrated Laboratory Scale (ILS) facility. Initial shakedown testing of the INL ILS experimental facility commenced on August 22, 2007. This fulfilled a DOE Level 2 milestone. Heatup of the first ILS module started at approximately 4:10 PM on September 24, 2007. Initial module testing continued for 420 hours. The test average H2 production rate was approximately 1.3 Nm3/hr (0.116 kg H2/hr), with a peak measured value of over 2 Nm3/hr (0.179 kg H2/hr). Significant module performance degradation was observed over the first 250 hours, after which no further degradation was noted for the remainder of the test. Once all test objectives had been successfully met, the test was terminated in a controlled fashion. Discussion is included concerning several modifications that will be incorporated into the facility components to improve reliability and ease of operation for future long term testing.

Effects of the Ti/Al atomic ratio on the properties of gradient (Ti,Al)N films synthesized by ion beam assisted deposition  

SciTech Connect

Gradient (Ti,Al)N films were prepared on high speed steel (HSS) and Si (111) wafers by using two Ar{sup +} beams to sputter a titanium target and an aluminum target separately, and a third N{sup +} beam to simultaneously bombard the growing film to assist deposition. The effects of the Ti/Al atomic ratio in the films on properties such as hardness, stress, and adhesion strength were investigated systematically. The results indicated that both the hardness and the adhesion of gradient (Ti,Al)N films to steel substrates exhibited {open_quotes}peak{close_quotes} type changes with an increase of the Ti/Al atomic ratio, and a maximum hardness of 3780thinspkgfthinspmm{sup {minus}2} was reached at a Ti/Al ratio of 5.35. The compressive stress of gradient (Ti,Al)N films increased with increasing Al content in the films. It was found that extreme hardness, high adhesion strength and low stress gradient (Ti,Al)N films can be synthesized on low temperature HSS steel by using the ion beam assisted deposition process.

Use of multiple backlighter foils and/or double-sided laser interaction geometry with backlit imaging can result in improved backlighter efficiency. An experimental comparison of backlighter intensity for Ti foils and Ti/Sc combination foils in both the one-sided and double-sided laser-interaction configuration is presented. Spectrally-integrated framing camera images show intensity contributions of front and rear backlighter surfaces for both foil types. Analysis of time-resolved x-ray spectra collected from foil targets show the relative contribution of Ti and Sc 2-1 He-like resonance lines to the total backlighter intensity.

Investigation of Ti-doped NaAlH4 by solid-state NMR  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

In recent years, the development of Ti-doped NaAlH{sub 4} as a hydrogen storage material has gained attention because of its large weight percentage of hydrogen ({approx}5%) compared to traditional interstitial hydrides. The addition of transition-metal dopants, in the form of Ti-halides, such as TiCl{sub 3}, dramatically improves the kinetics of the absorption and desorption of hydrogen from NaAlH{sub 4}. However, the role that Ti plays in enhancing the absorption and desorption of H{sub 2} is still unknown. In the present study, {sup 27}Al, {sup 23}Na, and {sup 1}H MAS (Magic Angle Spinning) NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) has been performed to understand the titanium speciation in Ti-doped NaAlH{sub 4}. All experiments were performed on a sample of crushed single crystals exposed to Ti during growth, a sample of solvent-mixed 4TiCl{sub 3} + 112NaAlH{sub 4}, a reacted sample of solvent-mixed TiCl{sub 3} + {sup 3}NaAlH{sub 4} with THF, and a reacted sample of ball-milled TiCl3 + 3NaAlH{sub 4}. The {sup 27}Al MAS NMR has shown differences in compound formation between solvent-mixed TiCl{sub 3} + 3NaAlH{sub 4} with THF and the mechanically ball-milled TiCl{sub 3} + 3NaAlH{sub 4}. {sup 27}Al MAS NMR of the mechanically ball-milled mixture of fully-reacted TiCl{sub 3} + 3NaAlH{sub 4} showed spectral signatures of TiAl{sub 3} while, the solvent-mixed 4TiCl{sub 3} + 112NaAlH{sub 4}, which is totally reacted, does not show the presences of TiAl{sub 3}, but shows the existence of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}.

Grain Refinement in TiC-Ni3Al Composites  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) was to develop composites of TiC-Ni{sub 3}Al with refined grain microstructures for application in diesel engine fuel injection devices. Grain refinement is important for improved wear resistance and high strength for the applications of interest. Attrition milling effectively reduces the initial particle size and leads to a reduction of the final grain size. However, an increase in the oxygen content occurs concomitantly with the grinding operation and decreased densification of the compacts occurs during sintering.

Role of Ti phases in the modulation of border traps at the TiO{sub 2}/n-Si interfaces  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Charge accumulation at interfaces is a key issue for the use of high dielectric constant materials in nanoelectronics. In this work, we report the charge accumulation behavior at the TiO{sub 2}/n-Si interfaces formed at various growth temperatures. Growth of TiO{sub 2} in an oxygen deficient environment led to the formation of rutile phase in the as-grown films. The anatase phase was recovered by annealing in air and the ratio of anatase to rutile phase in the TiO{sub 2} films improved considerably. The amount of charge accumulation and the direction of charge injection were studied by obtaining C-V hysteresis curves in the as-grown and the annealed TiO{sub 2} films. It was observed that the amount of accumulated charges decreased as the density of interface border traps dropped considerably due to annealing. X-ray photo-electron spectroscopy revealed the presence of two major phases corresponding to TiO{sub 2} and Ti{sub 2}O{sub 3}, due to the existence of oxygen deficiencies. The annealing in air resulted in appreciable increase in the weight percentage of TiO{sub 2} phase in samples grown at high temperatures. The healing of oxygen vacancies improved with the increase in the weight percentage of TiO{sub 2}. Thus, it was concluded that the accumulated charges were mainly due to oxygen deficiencies and the healing of oxygen defects led to a drop in the interface charges, thus, bringing the interface close to ideal.

On the remarkable optical and structural transformations in Mg-Ti-H thin On the remarkable optical and structural transformations in Mg-Ti-H thin films Speaker(s): Dana Borsa Date: October 16, 2006 - 12:00pm Location: 90-3122 Seminar Host/Point of Contact: Venkat Srinivasan In searching for battery electrode materials, Mg-Ti-H thin films triggered much interest with its hydrogen storage capacity of approx. 4 times larger than that of conventional NiMH batteries [1]. Besides this, the same system has also absolutely remarkable optical properties [2]. Highly reflective in the metallic state, the films become highly absorbing upon hydrogen absorption. Mg0.80Ti0.20Hx thin films combine a high absorption (87% of the solar spectrum) with a low thermal emissivity (only 10%), while after removal of hydrogen Mg0.80Ti0.20 absorbs no more than 1/3 of the solar

Evidence of Photocatalytic Dissociation of Water on TiO2 with Atomic Resolution  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Photocatalytic water splitting reaction on TiO2 surface is one of the fundamental issues that bears significant implication in hydrogen energy technology and has been extensively studied. However, the existence of the very first reaction step, the direct photo-dissociation of water, has been disregarded. Here, we provide unambiguously experimental evidence to demonstrate that adsorbed water molecules on reduced rutile TiO2(110)-1\\times1 surface can be dissociated under UV irradiation using low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy. It is identified that a water molecule at fivefold coordinated Ti (Ti5c) site can be photocatalytically dissociated, resulting in a hydroxyl at Ti5c and another hydroxyl at bridge oxygen row. Our findings reveal a missing link in the photocatalytic water splitting reaction chain, which greatly contribute to the detailed understanding of underlying mechanism.

Texture and pyramidal slip in Ti, Zr and their alloys  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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

Hydrogen Permeability of Mulitphase V-Ti-Ni Metallic Membranes  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Development of advanced hydrogen separation membranes in support of hydrogen production processes such as coal gasification and as front end gas purifiers for fuel cell based system is paramount to the successful implementation of a national hydrogen economy. Current generation metallic hydrogen separation membranes are based on Pd-alloys. Although the technology has proven successful, at issue is the high cost of palladium. Evaluation of non-noble metal based dense metallic separation membranes is currently receiving national and international attention. The focal point of the reported work was to evaluate a Group 5A-Ta, Nb, V-based alloy with respect to microstructural features and hydrogen permeability. Electrochemical hydrogen permeation testing of the V-Ti-Ni alloy is reported herein and compared to pure Pd measurements recorded as part of this same study. The V-Ti-Ni was demonstrated to have a steady state hydrogen permeation rate an order of magnitude higher than the pure Pd material in testing conducted at 22 C.

27Al and 1H Solid State NMR Studies Show Evidence of TiAl3 and TiH2 in Ti-doped NaAlH4  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Previous X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) studies on Ti-doped NaAlH{sub 4} revealed the reaction products of two heavily doped (33.3 at.%) samples that were solvent-mixed and mechanically-milled. This investigation revealed that nano-crystalline or amorphous Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} forms from the possible coordination of aluminum with oxygen atom of the furan ring system from added tetrahydrofuran (THF) in the solvent-mixed sample, and that TiAl{sub 3} forms in mechanically-milled samples. The present paper provides a more sophisticated NMR investigation of the these materials. On heavily doped (33.3 at.%) solvent-mixed samples, {sup 27}Al Magic Angle Spinning (MAS) NMR {sup 27}Al multiple quantum MAS (MQMAS) indicates the presence of an oxide layer of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} on the surfaces of potentially bulk nanocrystalline Ti, nanocrystalline TiAl{sub 3}, and/or metallic aluminum. The {sup 1}H MAS NMR data also indicate the possible coordination of aluminum with the oxygen atom in the THF. On heavily doped samples that were mechanically milled, {sup 27}Al MAS NMR and static NMR confirms the presence of TiAl{sub 3}. In addition, the {sup 1}H MAS NMR and {sup 1}H spin-lattice relaxation (T{sub 1}) measurements are consistent with the presence of TiH{sub 2}. These results are in agreement with recent XAFS measurements indicating both Al and H within the first few coordination shells of Ti in the doped alanate.

Effect of Aging Heat Treatments on Ni52Ti48 Shape Memory Alloy  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Ni-rich NiTi shape memory alloys (SMAs) are capable of attaining a wide range of transformation temperatures depending on the heat treatment conditions and superior thermo-mechanical cycling stability, which are desired for repeated solid-state actuation. High Ni-content Ni-rich SMAs have very low transformation temperatures in a solutionized condition due to the high Ni-content of the matrix. Slow cooling (furnacecooling) from solutionizing temperature and additional aging heat treatments result in the formation of Ni-rich precipitates such as Ni4Ti3, Ni3Ti2 and Ni3Ti and increase transformation temperatures above ambient by depleting excess Ni from the matrix. However, the precipitates do not undergo a martensitic phase transformation and they decrease the transformation strain by reducing the volume fraction of the material capable of transforming. Meanwhile, recent preliminary work shows that Ni3Ti precipitates dominate fatigue failure. The objectives of the present study are: (1) to eliminate Ni3Ti but still have Ni4Ti3 precipitates, which are responsible for the dimensional stability and increase transformation temperatures, (2) to investigate the effect of heat treatments on the transformation strain, and (3) to select single variant Ni4Ti3 precipitates through constrained aging for the formation of oriented internal stress and eventually obtain twoway shame memory effect (TWSME) and enhanced dimensional stability. Based on these objectives, the effect of aging heat treatment on transformation temperatures, microstructural evolution, and shape memory behavior were investigated for a Ni52Ti48 shape memory alloy (SMA) by using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and thermo-mechanical testing, including isobaric heating-cooling experiments under various stress levels. It was observed that solutionizing at 900 degree C for 24 hours eliminated Ni3Ti type precipitates, but additional aging heat treatments are needed to form Ni4Ti3 precipitates to increase transformation temperatures. Furnace-cooling and additional aging heat treatment results in the multi-stage martensitic transformation due to chemical and stress inhomogeneities in the microstructure. Aging of the controlled furnace-cooled material at 400 degree C for 48 hours resulted in the highest transformation temperatures among all processing conditions investigated due to the combination of Ni3Ti precipitates and 27 percent volume fraction of the Ni4Ti3 precipitates, which led to the depletion of Ni from the transforming matrix. However, since overaging results in losing coherency of the precipitates, dimensional stability during isobaric thermal cycling was negatively impacted.

Effect of the top electrode materials on the resistive switching characteristics of TiO{sub 2} thin film  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Various metals, such as Pt, stainless steel (SUS), Al, Ni, and Ti, were used as a top electrode (TE) to evaluate the dependency of the resistive switching characteristics on the TE of the metal/TiO{sub 2}/Pt structure. The variation of the chemical composition of TiO{sub 2} in the metal/TiO{sub 2}/Pt structure before and after switching was examined to identify the factors affecting the resistive switching characteristics of the samples with various TE materials. In the case of TE/TiO{sub 2}/Pt structures showing unstable resistive switching behavior, e.g., those with the Al, Ni, and Ti TEs, secondary ion mass spectrometry revealed an increase in the oxygen concentration at the interface area between the TE metal and TiO{sub 2}. This suggests that the oxidation reaction at the interface between the TE metal and TiO{sub 2} might cause the TE/TiO{sub 2}/Pt structure to exhibit unstable resistive switching characteristics. According to these results, the oxidation reaction at the interface between the metal TE and TiO{sub 2} thin film is a primary factor affecting the resistive switching characteristics of TiO{sub 2}-based Resistive Random Access Memory devices.

TiO{sub 2}/carbon nanotube hybrid nanostructures: Solvothermal synthesis and their visible light photocatalytic activity  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

MWCNT/TiO{sub 2} hybrid nanostructures were prepared via solvothermal synthesis and sol-gel method with benzyl alcohol as a surfactant. As-prepared hybrid materials were characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectra and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The results showed that MWCNTs were uniformly decorated with anatase nanocrystals in solvothermal condition, but MWCNTs were embedded in a majority of TiO{sub 2} nanoparticles by sol-gel method. When the weight ratio of MWCNTs to TiO{sub 2} was 20%, MWCNT/TiO{sub 2} hybrid nanostructures prepared by solvothermal synthesis exhibited higher visible-light-driven photocatalytic activity than that prepared by sol-gel method. Post-annealing of MWCNT/TiO{sub 2} nanostructures at 400 deg. C resulted in the formation of the carbonaceous Ti-C bonds on the interface between TiO{sub 2} and MWCNTs, which enhanced the photoabsorbance of the hybrid materials in the visible light region and improved the visible-light degradation efficiency of methylene blue. - Graphical abstract: MWCNT/TiO{sub 2} nanostructures have been prepared by solvothermal method, which exhibited higher visible-light-driven photocatalytic activity than that prepared by sol-gel method.

XAFS study of CoxTi?-xO?-x-anatase  

SciTech Connect

Co doped TiO? anatase is a promising candidate dilute magnetic semiconductor (DMS). DMS materials have potential applications in spintronics devices. These utilize the spin of carriers, and offer the promise of new devices with enhanced functionality. The application of DMS materials to spintronics is as spin injectors. These materials can have spin-polarized states in their valence or conduction bands. At interfaces with nonmagnetic semiconductors they can then be used for spin polarized carrier injection, allowing for the fabrication of novel devices utilizing spin. Theory and measurements indicate that they can be much more efficient spin injectors than ferromagnetic metals. This report describes some recent XAFS studies of these materials using the PNC-CAT beamlines at the APS.

Model NbTi Helical Solenoid Fabrication and Test Results  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A program to develop model magnets for a helical cooling channel is under way at Fermilab. In the first steps of a planned sequence of magnets, two four-coil helical solenoid models with 300 mm aperture have been fabricated and tested. These two models, HSM01 and HSM02, used insulated NbTi Rutherford cable wound onto stainless steel rings with spliceless transitions between coils. Strip heaters were included for quench protection of each coil, and the coils were epoxy-impregnated after winding inside the support structures. Based on the results of the first model the second model was made using a cable with optimized cross-section, improved winding and epoxy-impregnation procedures, enhanced ground insulation, and included heat exchange tubing for a test of conduction cooling. We report on the results and lessons learned from fabrication and tests of these two models.

The investigation of die-pressing and sintering behavior of ITP CP-Ti and Ti-6Al-4V powders  

SciTech Connect

This paper investigated the die-pressing and sintering behavior of the low-cost CP-Ti and Ti-6Al- 4V powders made by the Armstrong Process . The Armstrong powders have an irregular coral like, dendritic morphology, with a dendrite size of approximately 2-5 m. As-received as well as milled powders were uniaxially pressed at designated pressures up to 690 MPa to form disk samples with different aspect ratios. In the studied pressure range, an empirical powder compaction equation was applied to linearize the green density pressure relationship, and powder compaction parameters were obtained. The Armstrong Ti-64 powder exhibited a significantly higher sinterability than the CP-Ti powder. This was explained to be due to the higher diffusivity of V at the sintering temperature. The Ti-64 samples with a green density of 71.0% increased to 99.6% after sintering at 1300oC for 1 hour. An ex-situ technique was used to track the powder morphology change before and after sintering.

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Sr{sub 1-x}Pr{sub x}TiO{sub 3} ceramics (0.00{<=}x{<=}0.03) were prepared by a traditional solid-state reaction method. Two relaxation processes (marked as A and B) of the Sr{sub 0.09}Pr{sub 0.01}TiO{sub 3} ceramics were investigated by analyzing the E{sub a} values obtained from the Arrhenius law. Colossal dielectric constant (CDC) was first obtained in Sr{sub 0.09}Pr{sub 0.01}TiO{sub 3} ceramics, whose permittivity was up to 3000 (1 kHz, room temperature), greater than that of pure SrTiO{sub 3} ceramics and samples with more Pr addition (x=0.02 and 0.03). This CDC behavior was related to the internal barrier layer capacitance mechanism.

Effect of Milling Parameters on the Dehydrogenation Properties of the Mg-Ti-H system  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Magnesium-based alloys are promising candidates as potential hydrogen storage materials due to their inherent high hydrogen contents. Small particle size which can be achieved by milling, and small amounts of transition-metal compounds as catalysts result in increased hydrogen release/uptake kinetics. In this work, we examined the effects of various milling parameters and TiH2 content on the dehydrogenation properties of the Mg-Ti-H system. The samples were prepared with different amounts of TiH2 using various milling methods and conditions. The activation energy and the enthalpy change of dehydrogenation of the milled samples were determined by Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Thermal Analyzer (DTA). The results indicated that the activation energy and enthalpy change of MgH2 dehydrogenation were significantly reduced when 9.1 mol % of TiH2 was added to it and the mixture was milled in a dual planet

Self-assembled TiO2-Graphene Hybrid Nanostructures for Enhanced Li-ion Insertion  

SciTech Connect

We used anionic sulfate surfactants to assist the stabilization of graphene in aqueous solutions and facilitate the self-assembly of in-situ grown nanocrystalline TiO2, rutile and anatase, with graphene. These nanostructured TiO2-graphene hybrid materials were used for investigation of Li-ion insertion properties. The hybrid materials showed significantly enhanced Li-ion insertion/extraction in TiO2. The specific capacity was more than doubled at high charge rates, as compared with the pure TiO2 phase. The improved capacity at high charge-discharge rate may be attributed to increased electrode conductivity in presence of a percolated graphene network embedded into the metal oxide electrodes.

Magnetoresistance in nanostructured Tb/Ti and Tb/Si multilayers  

SciTech Connect

Magnetic, magnetoresistive and structural properties were studied for [Tb/Ti]{sub n} and [Tb/Si]{sub n} multilayers which were prepared by rf-sputtering. The thickness of the Tb layers varied from 1.5 to 12 nm. The thickness of 2 nm nonmagnetic spacers of Ti or Si was kept constant. Both anisotropic and isotropic magnetoresistance was observed in [Tb/Ti]{sub n} and [Tb/Si]{sub n} multilayers. A decrease in the thickness of the terbium layers led to a decrease in the anisotropic contribution to the total magnetoresistance. The negative isotropic magnetoresistanse in [Tb/Ti]{sub n} and [Tb/Si]{sub n} multilayers can be attributed to the giant magnetoresistance (GMR) and/or high field isotropic magnetoresistance. The structure of the samples of both types enabled the existence of the GMR effect.

Strain dependencies of energetic, structural, and polarization properties in tetragonal (PbTiO3)1/(SrTiO3)1 and (BaTiO3)1/(SrTiO3)1 superlattices: a comparative study with bulks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

First-principles density functional calculations are performed to investigate the interplay between inplane strains and interface effects in 1by1 PbTiO3/SrTiO3 and BaTiO3/SrTiO3 superlattices of tetragonal symmetry. One particular emphasis of this study is to conduct side-by-side comparisons on various ferroelectric properties in short-period superlattices and in constituent bulk materials, which turns out to be rather useful in terms of obtaining valuable insight into the different physics when ferroelectric bulks form superlattices. The various properties that are studied in this work include the equilibrium structure, strain dependence of mixing energy, microscopic ferroelectric off-center displacements, macroscopic polarization, piezoelectric coeffcients, effective charges, and the recently formulated k-dependent polarization dispersion structure. The details of our findings are rather lengthy, and are summarized in Sec. IV.

Enhancing solar photocatalytic detoxification by adsorption of porphyrins onto TiO sub 2  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Titanium dioxide (TiO{sub 2}) is a known photocatalyst for solar detoxification of water containing organic contaminants including PCB's and dioxins. Unfortunately, the UV light used by the photocatalyst only comprises about 4% of the strong spectrum. Metalloporphyrins strongly absorb in the visible and near infrared region. Using visible light, we have investigated Ni(II) uroporphyrin (NiUroP), Sn(IV)Cl{sub 2} uroporphyrin (SnUroP) and Sn(IV)Cl{sub 2} tetrakis(p-carboxyphenyl) porphyrin (SnTCPP) as possible enhancers of destruction of a model organic compound, salicylic acid (SA), by means of photosensitization of colloidal TiO{sub 2} particles. All three porphyrins are found to adsorb reversibly onto the colloidal TiO{sub 2} upon variation of pH. Adsorption of porphyrins results in the increased colloidal stability of fine TiO{sub 2} particles in the pH range 5--8. While NiUroP on TiO{sub 2} does not show any enhancement of photodestruction, the adsorption of SnUroP increases the destruction rate compared to that of the bare TiO{sub 2} surface. The effect of ambient oxygen on the observed photolability of the Sn porphyrins and enhancement of photodestruction of SA was also investigated. SnTCPP does not photodecompose upon illumination either in the presence or absence of TiO{sub 2}, but neither does it bind to the photocatalyst at pH 6. At pH 4.5 it adsorbs onto TiO{sub 2} but it also photodecompose at this pH. We are attempting to stabilize the adsorbed porphyrins by adding suitable peripheral substituents onto the porphyrin macrocycle. 27 refs., 6 figs.

Nanoindentation Studies Of Hard Nanocomposite Ti-B-N Thin Films  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Titanium boron nitride (Ti-B-N) films were deposited by reactive magnetron sputtering using single Titanium diboride (TiB{sub 2}) target in different Ar-N{sub 2} gas mixtures. The influence of N{sub 2}:Ar ratio on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the deposited films have been investigated. Atomic force microscopy analysis indicated the grain size decreases with incorporation of nitrogen in the films. Nanoindentation studies have shown the hardness decreases with nitrogen incorporation.

Interfaces in Ti[sub 3]Al composites reinforced with sigma SiC fibres  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

When SCS-6 fibers are used for reinforcing Ti[sub 3]Al matrices, a [beta]-depleted zone is often found in the matrix adjacent to the interface, varying from 3 to 7 [mu]m in thickness depending on the composition of the matrix. The cause for such depletion is believed to be the migration of the [beta] stabilizer, Nb, from the adjacent matrix into the reaction zone, which forms Nb-containing compounds such as (Ti,Nb)C and (Ti,Nb)[sub 5]Si[sub 3]. The depletion of [beta] near the interface can enhance the propensity for interfacial cracking as the more brittle [alpha][sub 2] phase is enriched. Here, the authors present a study of the interfaces in a Ti[sub 3]Al/SiC Sigma fiber composite. The reaction products, changes in microstructure and reaction kinetics are compared with Ti-6Al-4V matrix containing Sigma fibers and Ti[sub 3]Al matrices containing SCS fibers.

Chirped-Pulse Amplification with flashlamp-pumped Ti:Sapphire amplifiers  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Ti:Sapphire (Ti:Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}) amplifier stages are typically pumped with Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers doubled to 532 nm because of good spectral overlap, short temporal width, high repetition rate (i.e., 10 Hz to > 5 kHz) and the problems associated with flashlamp pumping a material with a relatively short upper state lifetime. Limitations to this pumping method arise due to the 1 to 1.5 joule/pulse ceiling found in most commercial high rep rate Nd:YAG lasers. The availability of high quality, large aperture Ti:Sapphire rods has made the flashlamp-pumping scheme an attractive option. The excellent thermal properties of Ti:Sapphire also allows an amplifier to be operated at high repetition rates. The front end of our laser relies on Chirped Pulse Amplification (CPA) in laser pumped Ti:Sapphire to generate 55 NJ, 90 fsec pulses at a 10 Hz rate. We report the use of a flashlamp pumped Ti:Sapphire head to further amplify the output of our system, producing 90 fsec, 250 NJ pulses at 5 Hz. The excellent output spatial profile yields a near diffraction-limited 5 {mu}m spot size and peak irradiance in excess of 5 {times} 10{sup 18} W/cm{sup 2}.

Lithium insertion into hollandite-type TiO{sub 2}.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Hollandite-type TiO{sub 2} compounds, isostructural with {alpha}-MnO{sub 2}, have been investigated as insertion electrodes for lithium batteries. Parent materials of K{sub x}Ti{sub 8}O{sub 16} (0 < x < 2) were treated with concentrated acid to yield TiO{sub 2} products that were essentially free of potassium. Lithium can be inserted into the (2 x 2) tunnels of the TiO{sub 2} structure chemically (with n-butyllithium) and electrochemically to an approximate composition Li{sub 0.5}TiO{sub 2}. The lithium ions can be easily removed from the lithiated structure by chemical reaction with bromine; cyclic voltammetry indicates that high voltages are required to remove the lithium by electrochemical methods. The poor electrochemical behavior of hollandite-TiO{sub 2} contrasts strongly with {alpha}-MnO{sub 2} electrodes. The superior properties of {alpha}-MnO{sub 2} electrodes are attributed to the presence of oxygen ions, either as H{sub 2}O or Li{sub 2}O, in the (2 x 2) channels; lithia-stabilized electrodes, 0.15Li{sub 2}O {center_dot} -MnO{sub 2}, show good cycling behavior and a rechargeable capacity of approximately 180 mAh/g.

Structural Environment of Nitrogen in N-doped Rutile TiO2(110)  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

We employ x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED) and nuclear reaction analysis (NRA) to characterize the concentration-dependent structural properties of nitrogen doping into rutile TiO2. High quality N-doped TiO2 were prepared on rutile single crystal TiO2(110) substrates using plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy with an electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) plasma and Ti effusive sources. Films with N dopant concentrations at or below 2 at.% exhibited predominately substitutional doping based on NRA data, whereas films with concentrations above this limit resulted in little or no substitutional N and surfaces rich in Ti3+. The binding energy of the N 1s feature in XPS did not readily distinguish between these two extremes in N-doping, rendering features within 0.4 eV of each other and similar peak profiles. Although widely used to characterize the state of N in anion-doped TiO2 materials, we find that XPS is unsuitable for this task.

Enhancement of solar photocatalytic detoxification by adsorption of porphyrins onto TiO sub 2  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Titanium dioxide (TiO{sub 2}) is a photocatalyst for solar detoxification of water containing organic contaminants such as solvents, PCB's, dioxins, pesticides, and dyes. Unfortunately, the ultraviolet (UV) energy used by TiO{sub 2} ({lambda}<400 nm) only comprises about 4% of the solar spectrum. One way of enhancing the efficiency of solar detoxification technologies is to utilize a larger portion of the solar spectrum to initiate the Tio{sub 2}- catalyzed detoxification chemistry. Metalloporphyrins strongly absorb visible and near infrared radiation. By utilization of a process called photosensitization, adsorption of these dyes onto TiO{sub 2} can enable a much broader portion of the solar spectrum to be used. Photosensitization relies upon the ability of the dye molecule to absorb more of the solar energy than bare TiO{sub 2} and to interact electronically with the TiO{sub 2} surface in such a way as to initiate TiO{sub 2}-based redox photochemistry using the dye-absorbed energy. 16 refs., 7 figs.

Aspects of nitrogen surface chemistry relevant to TiN chemical vapor deposition  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

NH{sub 3} is an important component of many chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processes for TiN films, which are used for diffusion barriers and other applications in microelectronic circuits. In this study, the interaction of NH{sub 3} with TiN surfaces is examined with temperature programmed desorption (TPD) and Auger electron spectroscopy. NH{sub 3} has two adsorption states on TiN: a chemisorbed state and a multilayer state. A new method for analyzing TPD spectra in systems with slow pumping speeds yields activation energies for desorption for the two states of 24 kcal/mol and 7.3 kcal/mol, respectively. The sticking probability into the chemisorption state is {approximately}0.06. These results are discussed in the context of TiN CVD. In addition, the high temperature stability of TiN is investigated. TiN decomposes to its elements only after heating to 1300 K, showing that decomposition is unlikely to occur under CVD conditions.

Study of surface fluorination of photocatalytic TiO{sub 2} by thermal shock method  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Surface fluorinated TiO{sub 2} powders were prepared by thermal shock method and an overall comparative study was achieved on the basis of XRD, SEM, UV-vis and XPS analyses. The main objective was to elucidate the influences of surface fluorination on the crystallite structures, morphologies, optical properties and surface chemistry with the temperature. According to the results, the surface fluorination under thermal shock method below 600 Degree-Sign C did not change the crystallite structure and the particles size, but successfully created chemisorbed fluoride ions, oxygen vacancies and increased the hydroxyl groups on the surface of TiO{sub 2}. The presence of oxygen vacancies was assigned to the red shift of TiO{sub 2} optical absorption edge, which was the origin of visible-light-induced photocatalytic activity of these samples. For the thermal shock temperatures over 600 Degree-Sign C, the K{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13}-like phase was formed, resulting from the decrease of surface hydroxyl groups and the blue shift in absorption edge which reduced the photocatalytic activity. - Graphical abstract: The influence of fluorination on the surface of TiO{sub 2} by thermal shock method at several temperatures has been investigated by following the evolution of the F1s spectra obtained by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The blank peaks are assigned to the chemisorbed fluoride ions on the samples surface and the filled peaks to fluorine atoms in oxygenated environment of solid solution TiO{sub 2-x}F{sub x}, which is originated from the substitution of F ions for O ions in the TiO{sub 2} lattice. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Surface fluorination of TiO{sub 2} P25 by thermal shock method. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Structure, morphology, surface and photocatalytic properties of fluorinated TiO{sub 2}. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Low thermal shock temperatures increase the photocatalytic activity. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Fluoride ions chemisorbed on the surface without structure and morphology change. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Formation of K{sub 2}Ti{sub 6}O{sub 13} phase at high thermal shock temperatures.

Metallic glass alloys of Zr, Ti, Cu and Ni  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

At least quaternary alloys form metallic glass upon cooling below the glass transition temperature at a rate less than 10.sup.3 K/s. Such alloys comprise titanium from 19 to 41 atomic percent, an early transition metal (ETM) from 4 to 21 atomic percent and copper plus a late transition metal (LTM) from 49 to 64 atomic percent. The ETM comprises zirconium and/or hafnium. The LTM comprises cobalt and/or nickel. The composition is further constrained such that the product of the copper plus LTM times the atomic proportion of LTM relative to the copper is from 2 to 14. The atomic percentage of ETM is less than 10 when the atomic percentage of titanium is as high as 41, and may be as large as 21 when the atomic percentage of titanium is as low as 24. Furthermore, when the total of copper and LTM are low, the amount of LTM present must be further limited. Another group of glass forming alloys has the formula (ETM.sub.1-x Ti.sub.x).sub.a Cu.sub.b (Ni.sub.1-y Co.sub.y).sub.c wherein x is from 0.1 to 0.3, y.cndot.c is from 0 to 18, a is from 47 to 67, b is from 8 to 42, and c is from 4 to 37. This definition of the alloys has additional constraints on the range of copper content, b.

Preparation and extrusion of multifilamentary NbTi conductor billets  

SciTech Connect

In a cooperative program with industrial superconducting wire manufacturers for the purpose of studying billet preparation and extrusion, a total of twenty billets were assembled. Fourteen of these contained no superconductor but were ''dummy'' billets to evaluate methods of stacking to achieve the best packing density. These billets were not extruded but were sectioned transversely and longitudinally for evaluation of billet preparation techniques. The remaining six billets were assembled with NbTi stacking elements in a copper/copper nickel matrix using a standard conductor configuration. Two of these billets were instrumented with thermocouples and used to evaluate preheating techniques. The other four were extruded and drawn to finished conductor size for critical current measurement. This study showed that hexagonal stacking elements, contoured billet jackets and hot isostatic pressing resulted in high density uniform billets for extrusion. Rotary forging was found to be unacceptable for billet compacting. Fast billet heating was achieved in both the salt bath and by induction heating, but the induction method gave a more uniform temperature distribution during the heating cycle. Asymmetry from poor packing density in the billet resulted in nonuniform filament size distributions and poor critical current performance. Billet yield was increased as much as 16 percent by contouring the stacking element positions within the billet. (auth)

Structure of epitaxial (Fe,N) codoped rutile TiO2 thin films by x-ray absorption  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Homoepitaxial thin films of Fe:TiO2 and (Fe,N):TiO2 were deposited on rutile(110) by molecular beam epitaxy. X-ray absorption near edge spectroscopy (XANES) spectra were collected at the Ti L-edge, Fe L-edge, O K-edge, N K-edge, and Ti K-edge. No evidence of structural disorder associated with a high concentration of oxygen vacancies is observed. Substitution of Fe for Ti could not be confirmed, although secondary phase Fe2O3 and metallic Fe can be ruled out. The similarity of the N K-edge spectra to O, and the presence of a strong x-ray linear dichroism (XLD) signal for the N K-edge, indicates that N is substitutional for O in the rutile lattice, and is not present as a secondary phase such as TiN. Simulations of the XANES spectra qualitatively confirm substitution, although N appears to be present in more than one local environment. Neither Fe:TiO2 nor (Fe,N):TiO2 exhibit intrinsic room temperature ferromagnetism, despite the presence of mixed valence Fe(II)/Fe(III) in the reduced (Fe,N):TiO2 film.

Visible Light Absorption of Binuclear TiOCoII Charge-Transfer UnitAssembled in Mesoporous Silica  

SciTech Connect

Grafting of CoII(NCCH3)2Cl2 onto mesoporous Ti-MCM-41 silicain acetonitrile solution affords binuclear Ti-O-CoII sites on the poresurface under complete replacement of the precursor ligands byinteractions with anchored Ti centers and the silica surface. The CoIIligand field spectrum signals that the Co centers are anchored on thepore surface in tetrahedral coordination. FT-infrared action spectroscopyusing ammonia gas adsorption reveals Co-O-Si bond modes at 831 and 762cm-1. No Co oxide clusters are observed in the as-synthesized material.The bimetallic moieties feature an absorption extending from the UV intothe visible to about 600 nm which is attributed to the TiIV-O-CoII?3TiIII-O-CoIII metal-to-metal charge-transfer (MMCT) transition. Thechromophore is absent in MCM-41 containing Ti and Co centers isolatedfrom each other; this material was synthesized by grafting CoII onto aTi-MCM-41 sample with the Ti centers protected by a cyclopentadienylligand. The result indicates that the appearance of the charge-transferabsorption requires that the metal centers are linked by an oxo bridge,which is additionally supported by XANES spectroscopy. The MMCTchromophore of Ti-O-CoII units has sufficient oxidation power to serve asvisible light electron pump for driving multi-electron transfer catalystsof demanding uphill reactions such as water oxidation.

Chemistry of NOx on TiO2 surfaces studied by ambient pressure XPS: Chemistry of NOx on TiO2 surfaces studied by ambient pressure XPS: products, effect of UV irradiation, water and coadsorbed K+ Title Chemistry of NOx on TiO2 surfaces studied by ambient pressure XPS: products, effect of UV irradiation, water and coadsorbed K+ Publication Type Journal Article Year of Publication 2013 Authors Rosseler, Olivier, Mohamad Sleiman, Nahuel V. Montesinos, Andrey Shavorskiy, Valerie Keller, Nicolas Keller, Marta I. Litter, Hendrik Bluhm, Miquel Salmeron, and Hugo Destaillats Journal J. Phys. Chem. Lett. Volume 4 Start Page 536 Issue 3 Pagination 536-541 Date Published 01/2013 Abstract Self-cleaning surfaces containing TiO2 nanoparticles have been postulated to efficiently remove NOx from the atmosphere. However, UV irradiation of NOx adsorbed on TiO2 also was shown to form harmful gas-phase byproducts such as HONO and N2O that may limit their depolluting potential. Ambient pressure XPS was used to study surface and gas-phase species formed during adsorption of NO2 on TiO2 and subsequent UV irradiation at λ = 365 nm. It is shown here that NO3-, adsorbed on TiO2 as a byproduct of NO2 disproportionation, was quantitatively converted to surface NO2 and other reduced nitrogenated species under UV irradiation in the absence of moisture. When water vapor was present, a faster NO3- conversion occurred, leading to a net loss of surface-bound nitrogenated species. Strongly adsorbed NO3- in the vicinity of coadsorbed K+ cations was stable under UV light, leading to an efficient capture of nitrogenated compounds.

XAFS Study of Epitaxial CoxTi1-xO?-x Anatase  

SciTech Connect

Co doped TiO?-anatase is a promising candidate for a room-temperature ferromagnetic semiconductor. XAFS measurements have been used to investigate the local Co environment and Co valence for several Co-anatase films. The samples were grown on LaAlO?(001) by oxygen plasma assisted molecular beam epitaxy and on SrTiO? by atomic oxygen assisted MBE. Co concentrations were about 5%. The measurements were made at the PNC-CAT bending magnet and undulator beamlines at the Advanced Photon Source. For the films on LaAlO?, the near edge clearly shows the presence of only Co(??), and no evidence for metallic Co, while the films on SrTiO? showed significant metallic Co. Analysis of the extended fine structure for the LaAlO? films finds that the Co substitutes for Ti with some distortion of the lattice. Both in-plane and out-of-plane Co-O bonds are expanded from the Ti-O bonds in anatase. The in-plane bonds are expanded approximately twice as much. A deficit in the oxygen coordination number suggests a correlation of oxygen vacancies with Co sites.

XRD and NMR investigation of Ti-compound formation in solution-doping of sodium aluminum hydrides: Solubility of Ti in NaAlH4 crystals grown in THF  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Sodium aluminum hydrides have gained attention due to their high hydrogen weight percent (5.5% ideal) compared to interstitial hydrides, and as a model for hydrides with even higher hydrogen weight fraction. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the Ti-compounds that are formed under solution-doping techniques, such as wet doping in solvents such as tetrahydrofuran (THF). Compound formation in Ti-doped sodium aluminum hydrides is investigated using x-ray diffraction (XRD) and magic angle spinning (MAS) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). We present lattice parameter measurements of crushed single crystals, which were exposed to Ti during growth. Rietveld refinements indicate no lattice parameter change and thus no solubility for Ti in NaAlH{sub 4} by this method of exposure. In addition, x-ray diffraction data indicate that no Ti substitutes in NaH, the final decomposition product for the alanate. Reaction products of completely reacted (33.3 at. %-doped) samples that were solvent-mixed or mechanically milled are investigated. Formation of TiAl{sub 3} is observed in mechanically milled materials, but not solution mixed samples, where bonding to THF likely stabilizes Ti-based nano-clusters. The Ti in these clusters is activated by mechanical milling.

Optical properties of TiN thin films close to the superconductor-insulator transition.  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We present the intrinsic optical properties over a broad spectral range of TiN thin films deposited on an Si/SiO{sub 2} substrate. We analyze the measured reflectivity spectra of the film-substrate multilayer structure within a well-establish procedure based on the Fresnel equation and extract the real part of the optical conductivity of TiN. We identify the metallic contribution as well as the finite energy excitations and disentangle the spectral weight distribution among them. The absorption spectrum of TiN bears some similarities with the electrodynamic response observed in the normal state of the high-temperature superconductors. Particularly, a mid-infrared feature in the optical conductivity is quite reminiscent of a pseudogap-like excitation.

Photoluminescence in disordered Zn{sub 2}TiO{sub 4}  

SciTech Connect

In this work, the polymeric precursor method was used to obtain disordered Zn{sub 2}TiO{sub 4} powders, either undoped or doped with Sn{sup 4+}, Cr{sup 3+} and V{sup 5+}, to be applied as photoluminescent material. The characterization was undertaken by means of thermal analysis (TG and DTA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), infrared spectroscopy (IR) and photoluminescence (PL). Previous works stated that titanate octahedra containing a short Ti-O distance show efficient luminescence at room temperature if these octahedra are isolated from each other. In the present work, the phenomenon was observed in condensed octahedra, sharing edges. The room temperature PL noticed in undoped Zn{sub 2}TiO{sub 4} had its intensity increased by the dopant addition-the increase was of about 300% for V{sup 5+} doping, 400% for Cr{sup 3+} and 800% for Sn{sup 4+}.

Atom-probe field-ion-microscopy study of Fe-Ti alloys  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

A newly developed high-performance atom-probe (field ion microscope) was employed for the composition analysis of Fe-Ti alloys and their interactions with ambient gas, such as H/sub 2/ and O/sub 2/. With a mass resolution (m/..delta..m) better than 2000 and a spatial resolution of a few A, all isotopes of Fe and Ti and their hydrides and other compounds are clearly resolved during the depth profile study. Some of our findings are: (1) Titanium segregated on the surface and grain boundaries upon heating (greater than or equal to 900/sup 0/C), in the form of oxides, and (2) some Ti in the bulk forms clusters of various sizes with C, O, and/or N as nuclei.

Eutectic bonding of a Ti sputter coated, carbon aerogel wafer to a Ni foil  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The formation of high energy density, storage devices is achievable using composite material systems. Alternate layering of carbon aerogel wafers and Ni foils with rnicroporous separators is a prospective composite for capacitor applications. An inherent problem exists to form a physical bond between Ni and the porous carbon wafer. The bonding process must be limited to temperatures less than 1000{degrees}C, at which point the aerogel begins to degrade. The advantage of a low temperature eutectic in the Ni-Ti alloy system solves this problem. Ti, a carbide former, is readily adherent as a sputter deposited thin film onto the carbon wafer. A vacuum bonding process is then used to join the Ni foil and Ti coating through eutectic phase formation. The parameters required for successfld bonding are described along with a structural characterization of the Ni foil-carbon aerogel wafer interface.

Molecular beam epitaxy of SrTiO{sub 3} with a growth window  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Many complex oxides with only nonvolatile constituents do not have a wide growth window in conventional molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) approaches, which makes it difficult to obtain stoichiometric films. Here it is shown that a growth window in which the stoichiometry is self-regulating can be achieved for SrTiO{sub 3} films by using a hybrid MBE approach that uses a volatile metal-organic source for Ti, titanium tetra isopropoxide (TTIP). The growth window widens and shifts to higher TTIP/Sr flux ratios with increasing temperature, showing that it is related to the desorption of the volatile TTIP. We demonstrate stoichiometric, highly perfect, insulating SrTiO{sub 3} films. The approach can be adapted for the growth of other complex oxides that previously were believed to have no wide MBE growth window.

First-principles study of hydrogen storage on Ti-decorated B{sub 2}C sheet  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The hydrogen storage capacity of Ti decorated B{sub 2}C sheet has been investigated by first-principles plane-wave calculation. It is revealed that a single Ti atom adsorbed on the B{sub 2}C sheet can strongly bind up to four hydrogen molecules. The adsorption energy is in the range of -0.36--0.82 eV/H{sub 2}, which is suitable for ambient temperature hydrogen storage. Considering the fact that Ti can be loaded on both sides of B{sub 2}C sheet, corresponding gravimetric storage capacity of Ti/B{sub 2}C system was also calculated and it can reach to about 7.0 wt%, exceeding the minimum requirement of 6.0 wt% for applications. - Graphical abstract: We investigated the hydrogen storage capacity of Ti decorated B{sub 2}C sheet.

Investigation of the Ti/MgCl{sub 2} interface on a Si(111) 7 x 7 substrate  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Photoelectron spectroscopy with synchrotron radiation, low energy electron diffraction, and ion-scattering spectroscopy were used in order to study the Ti/MgCl{sub 2} interface grown on an atomically clean Si(111) 7 x 7 substrate. A series of high resolution spectra after deposition of a thick MgCl{sub 2} layer, step by step deposition of Ti and gradual annealing, indicated a very reactive interface even at room temperature. Strong interaction between the incoming Ti atoms and the MgCl{sub 2} layer, leads to the formation of Ti{sup 2+} and Ti{sup 4+} oxidation states. The interfacial interaction continues even at multilayer Ti coverage mainly by the partial disruption of Mg-Cl bonds and the formation of Ti-Cl sites, rendering this interface a very promising UHV-compatible model of a pre-catalyst for olefin polymerization. After the final annealing, the MgCl{sub 2} multilayers desorb while Ti remains on the surface forming a silicide layer on which Cl and Mg atoms are attached.

Clusters and Magnetism in Epitaxial Co-doped TiO? Anatase.  

SciTech Connect

We show that under certain conditions, highly Co-enriched Ti0? anatase clusters nucleate on epitaxial Ti0? anatase grown on LaA?O?(001) by oxygen plasma assisted molecular beam epitaxy. In the most extreme cases, virtually all incident Co segregates to the clusters, yielding a nanoscale ferromagnitic phase that is not ferromagnetic in homogeneous films of the same Co concentration. The nucleation of this phase simultaneous with continuous epitaxial film growth must be carefully monitored in order to avoid drawing false conclusions about the film structure

Mixed-sputter deposition of Ni-Ti-Cu shape memory films  

SciTech Connect

Ni-Ti-Cu shape memory films were mixed-sputter deposited from separate nickel, titanium, and copper targets, providing increased compositional flexibility. Shape memory characteristics, examined for films with 7 at. % Cu and 41--51 at. % Tl, were determined with temperature controlled substrate curvature measurements, and microstructure was studied with transmission electron microscopy. The Ni-Ti-Cu films were found to have shape memory properties comparable to bulk materials, with transformation temperatures between 20 and 62{degree}C, a 10--13{degree}C hysteresis, and up to 330 MPa recoverable stress.

Characterizations Of Precipitate Phases In a Ti-Ni-Pd Alloy  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Precipitates in the Ti46Ni37.5Pd16.5 alloy were investigated by electron diffraction and high-resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy. The phase content and stability were determined at several different temperatures and times. Aging at 400 C for an hour results in a new phase, which is consumed by P-phase at longer aging time. At 450 C, the new phase appears first, and then coexists with P-phase. At 500 C, the entire alloy transformed into the new phase. At 550 C, Ti3(Ni,Pd)4 phase begins to form.

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A photocatalytic method has been presented to carry out one-electron reduction of C{sub 60} and C{sub 70} in 50/50 (v/v) benzene/ethanol. The fullerene reduction was carried out in colloidal TiO{sub 2} suspension using UV excitation. The charge transfer between the excited TiO{sub 2} semiconductor colloid and fullerene molecule occurs with a quantum efficiency of 13% for C{sub 70} and 24% for C{sub 60}. Laser flash photolysis measurements have been carried out to elucidate the mechanism of photocatalytic reduction.

Enhancing the Electron Mobility via Delta-Doping in SrTiO3  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We fabricated high-mobility {delta}-doped structures in SrTiO{sub 3} thin films in order to investigate the low temperature electronic transport properties of confined carriers in this system. An enhancement of the electron mobility above the bulk value was observed as the doped layer thickness decreased. High-field Hall measurements revealed that this mobility enhancement originates from higher-mobility electrons in the undoped clean regions, which have quantum-mechanically broadened from the doped layer. Because of the absence of apparent lattice misfit between the layers, this structure is highly suitable for investigating two-dimensional electron gases in SrTiO{sub 3}

Diffusion bonding of Ti coated Zircaloy-4 and 316-L stainless steel  

SciTech Connect

Diffusion bonding of Zircaloy-4 and Type 316-L stainless steel was carried out by coating the joining surfaces with Ti to minimize the interlayer effect. Bonding heat treatments were carried out in vacuum at 1000 deg. C for 4 h and 1050 deg. C for 1 h. The microstructure of the diffusion zone was investigated by scanning electron microscopy and the phases in the diffusion zone were analyzed by energy dispersive spectroscopy. It is observed that Ti coating at the interface produced a dendritic structure in the diffusion zone formed in the Zircaloy-4. The concentration of the dendrites increases with an increase in bonding temperature.

Growth mechanism of in situ synthesized TiB{sub w} in titanium matrix composites prepared by common casting technique  

SciTech Connect

Titanium matrix composites reinforced with TiB and RE{sub 2}O{sub 3} (RE = rare earth metal) were fabricated by a non-consumable arc-melting technology utilizing chemical reaction between titanium, B{sub 2}O{sub 3} and RE. Microstructural characterization of in situ synthesized TiB was performed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). When the volume percentage is relatively low, the TiB shows a typical fine needle-shape due to the solidification process. The TiB whiskers have a B27 crystal structure and grow along the B27 [010] direction. Based on Density Functional Theory (DFT), the surface energies of B27 (100), (101), (101-bar ) and (001) planes were calculated. The results show that the cross sections of TiB whiskers are hexagonal and consist of (100), (101), (101-bar ) planes.

High Density n-Si/n-TiO2 Core/Shell Nanowire Arrays with Enhanced Photoactivity  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

There are currently great needs to develop low-cost inorganic materials that can efficiently perform solar water splitting as photoelectrolysis of water into hydrogen and oxygen has significant potential to provide clean energy. We investigate the Si/TiO2 nanowire heterostructures to determine their potential for the photooxidation of water. We observed that highly dense Si/TiO2 core/shell nanowire arrays enhanced the photocurrent by 2.5 times compared to planar Si/TiO2 structure due to their low reflectance and high surface area. We also showed that n-Si/n-TiO2 nanowire arrays exhibited a larger photocurrent and open circuit voltage than p-Si/n-TiO2 nanowires due to a barrier at the heterojunction.

Effect of crystallinity and nonstoichiometric region on dielectric properties of SrTiO{sub 3} films formed on Ru  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The dielectric constant depending on the film thickness for SrTiO{sub 3} films formed on Ru was investigated after an annealing step at 600 deg. C, which shows that the dielectric constant increased abruptly with the film thickness up to 20 nm and then increased slightly, remaining relatively constant at a value of about 65. The abrupt increase was due to the crystallinity of SrTiO{sub 3} films. On the other hand, the slight increase was related to the existence of nonstoichiometric region near the interface of SrTiO{sub 3} film and Ru, which was intermixed with SrTiO{sub 3} and Ti-O phases having an equivalent oxide thickness over 0.32 nm.

A reaction mechanism for titanium nitride CVD from TiCl{sub 4} and NH{sub 3}  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A gas-phase and surface reaction mechanism for the CVD of TiN from TiCl{sub 4} and NH{sub 3} is proposed. The only gas-phase process is complex formation, which can compete with deposition. The surface mechanism postulates the stepwise elimination of Cl and H atoms from TiCl{sub 4} and NH{sub 3}, respectively, to form solid TiN and gaseous HCl. The mechanism also accounts for the change in oxidation state of Ti by allowing for liberation of N{sub 2}. Provided that the surface composition is at steady state, the stoichiometry of the overall reaction is reproduced exactly. In addition, the global kinetic law predicted by the mechanism is successfully fit to new deposition data from a rotating disk reactor and is shown to be consistent with literature results.

Reaction of U-VI with titanium-substituted magnetite: Influence of Ti on U-IV speciation  

SciTech Connect

Reduction of hexavalent uranium (UVI) to less soluble tetravalent uranium (UIV) through enzymatic or abiotic redox reactions has the potential to alter U mobility in subsurface environments. As a ubiquitous natural mineral, magnetite (Fe3O4) is of interest because of its ability to act as a rechargeable reductant for UVI. Natural magnetites are often impure with titanium, and structural Fe3+ replacement by TiIV yields a proportional increase in the relative Fe2+ content in the metal sublattice to maintain bulk charge neutrality. In the absence of oxidation, the Ti content sets the initial bulk Fe2+/Fe3+ ratio (R). Here, we demonstrate that Ti-doped magnetites (Fe3 xTixO4) reduce UVI to UIV. The UVI-Fe2+ redox reactivity was found to be controlled directly by R, but was otherwise independent of Ti content (xTi). However, in contrast to previous studies with pure magnetite where UVI was reduced to nanocrystalline uraninite (UO2), the presence of structural Ti (xTi = 0.25 0.53) results in the formation of UIV species that lack the bidentate U-O2-U bridges of uraninite. Extended x-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopic analysis indicated that the titanomagnetite-bound UIV phase has a novel UIV-Ti binding geometry, different from the coordination of UIV in the mineral brannerite (UIVTi2O6). The observed UIV-Ti coordination at a distance of 3.43 suggests a binuclear corner-sharing adsorption/incorporation UIV complex with the solid phase. Furthermore, we explored the effect of oxidation (decreasing R) and solids-to-solution ratio on the reduced UIV phase. The formation of the non-uraninite UIV-Ti phase appears to be controlled by availability of surface Ti sites, rather than R. Our work highlights a previously unrecognized role of Ti in the environmental chemistry of UIV and suggests that further work to characterize the long-term stability of UIV phases formed in the presence of Ti is warranted.

L'Energy Amplifier di Rubbia gli studi per la produzione di un'energia nucleare pulita ed il loro impatto sul piano economico  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The growing interest towards new energy forms is a common feature of many different studying fields: physics, engineering, economics and politics. The main reason is that human population is growing fast (there's a prevision of about nine billion people in 2050) and with it is increasing the energy request, both for the industrialized world and for the developing countries. This means that the actual organization of the energy market will not be able to satisfy the needs of the near future: clean energy for everybody. The International Energy Agency provided a "business as usual" scenario where is shown that by the year 2030 the world energy demand will be 70% higher than now and the electricity demand would follow the same pattern, needing somewhat like 3475 GW of new electric power. The logic conclusion is that we'll need all the energy forms we know: fossil fuels, nuclear and renewable energy. Nowadays the energy - and particularly the electricity - market is facing large problems: global warming and depen...

Pseudocapacitive Lithium-Ion Storage in Oriented Anatase TiO2 Nanotube Arrays  

SciTech Connect

We report on the synthesis and electrochemical properties of oriented anatase TiO{sub 2} nanotube (NT) arrays as electrodes for Li-ion batteries. The TiO{sub 2} NT electrodes displayed both pseudocapacitive Li{sup +} storage associated with the NT surface and the Li{sup +} storage within the bulk material. The relative contribution of the pseudocapacitive and bulk storages depends strongly on the scan rate. While the charges are stored primarily in the bulk at low scan rates (<< 1 mV/s), the surface storage dominates the total storage capacity at higher scan rates (>1 mV/s). The storage capacity of the NT electrodes as a function of charge/discharge rates showed no dependence on the NT film thickness, suggesting that the Li{sup +} insertion/extraction processes occur homogeneously across the entire length of NT arrays. These results indicated that the electron conduction along the NT walls and the ion conduction within the electrolyte do not cause significant hindering of the charge/discharge kinetics for NT electrode architectures. As a result of the surface pseudocapacitive storage, the reversible Li{sup +} storage capacities for TiO{sub 2} NT electrodes were higher than the theoretical storage capacity for bulk anatase TiO{sub 2} materials.

Properties of ion implanted Ti-6Al-4V processed using beamline and PSII techniques  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The surface of Ti-6Al-4V (Ti64) alloy has been modified using beamline implantation of boron. In separate experiments, Ti64 has been implanted with nitrogen using a plasma source ion implantation (PSII) technique utilizing either ammonia (NH{sub 3}), nitrogen (N{sub 2}), or their combinations as the source of nitrogen ions. Beamline experiments have shown the hardness of the N-implanted surface saturates at a dose level of {approximately} 4 {times} 10{sup 17} at/cm{sup 2} at {approximately} 10 GPa. The present work makes comparisons of hardness and tribological tests of (1) B implantation using beamline techniques, and (2) N implanted samples using ammonia and/or nitrogen gas in a PSII process. The results show that PSII using N{sub 2} or NH{sub 3} gives similar hardness as N implantation using a beamline process. The presence of H in the Ti alloy surface does not affect the hardness of the implanted surface. Boron implantation increased the surface hardness by as much as 2.5x at the highest dose level. Wear testing by a pin-on-disk method indicated that nitrogen implantation reduced the wear rate by as much as 120x, and boron implantation reduced the wear rate by 6.5x. Increased wear resistance was accompanied by a decreased coefficient of friction.

Band-engineered SrTiO{sub 3} nanowires for visible light photocatalysis  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We have theoretically investigated the structural, electronic, and optical properties of perovskite SrTiO{sub 3} nanowires for use in visible light photocatalytic applications using pseudopotential density-functional theory calculations. The electronic structure calculations show that the band gap is modified in the SrTiO{sub 3} nanowires compared with that of the bulk. For TiO{sub 2}-terminated nanowires, the mid-band states induced by the combination of oxygen and strontium atoms on the surface lead to a shift in the valence band toward the conduction band without interference from the edge of the conduction band, which reduces the band gap. On the contrary, the electronic states induced by the combination of oxygen and strontium atoms on the surface of SrO-terminated nanowires lead to a shift in the conduction band toward the valence band. The calculated optical results indicate that the absorption edge of the nanowires shift towards the red-light region. These theoretical results suggest that perovskite SrTiO{sub 3} nanowires are promising candidates for use in visible light photocatalytic processes such as solar-assisted water splitting reactions.

Photoluminescence of samarium-doped TiO{sub 2} nanotubes  

SciTech Connect

Samarium (Sm)-modified TiO{sub 2} nanotubes (TNTs) were synthesized by low-temperature soft chemical processing. X-ray powder diffraction analyses of the synthesized Sm-doped and non-doped TNTs show a broad peak near 2{theta}=10{sup o}, which is typical of TNTs. The binding energy of Sm {sup 3}d{sub 5/2} for 10 mol% Sm-doped TNT (1088.3 eV) was chemically shifted from that of Sm{sub 2}O{sub 3} (1087.5 eV), showing that Sm existed in the TiO{sub 2} lattice. Sm-doped TNTs clearly exhibited red fluorescence, corresponding to the doped Sm{sup 3+} ion in the TNT lattice. The Sm-doped TNT excitation spectrum exhibited a broad curve, which was similar to the UV-vis optical absorption spectrum. Thus, it was considered that the photoluminescence emission of Sm{sup 3+}-doped TNT with UV-light irradiation was caused by the energy transfer from the TNT matrix via the band-to-band excitation of TiO{sub 2} to the Sm{sup 3+} ion. - Graphical Abstract: Samarium-doped TiO{sub 2} nanotubes (TNTs) having a nanotubular structure were synthesized by soft chemical route. It was revealed that the energy associated by the band-to-band excitation of TNT matrix transferred to the doped Sm{sup 3+} ions in the lattice, resulting in emission of strong and visible red fluorescence. Highlights: > Sm-doped TiO{sub 2} nanotubes synthesized by low-temperature soft chemical processing. > Sm{sup 3+} substitutes Ti{sup 4+} ions in the nanotube lattice. > Clear fluorescent emission due to the f-f transition at the Sm{sup 3+} in a crystal field environment. > Band-to-band excitation of TiO{sub 2} and followed energy transfer to Sm{sup 3+} causes the luminescence.

Photocatalytic degradation of 4-chlorophenol: The effects of varying TiO{sub 2} concentration and light wavelength  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The effects of TiO{sub 2} surface loading and light conditions on the photocatalyzed degradation of 4-chlorophenol (4-CP) were examined, in order to address deficiencies in previous studies in which these issues were not examined satisfactorily. It is proposed that these factors explain differences in the reported reaction intermediate concentrations. Increasing the loading of TiO{sub 2} in a slurry has little effect on the rate of 4-CP disappearance. However, the concentration of 4-chlorocatechol (4-CC), a primary degradation product decreases with increasing TiO{sub 2}. The rate of mineralization increased with increasing TiO{sub 2} concentration was more rapid under conditions of lower light intensity. Significant adsorption of 4-CC on Degussa P25 TiO{sub 2} was measured and these data are fitted well by a Langmuir isotherm. Adsorption of 4-CC accounts for most of the changes in 4-CC concentration at different TiO{sub 2} loadings. An increased proportion of surface oxidation reactions at higher TiO{sub 2} loadings and lower light intensity may explain the higher rates of mineralization in thicker slurries. The quantum yield of reaction of 4-CP increased with decreasing wavelength of light from {phi} = 0.0 1, at {lambda} = 360 nm to {phi} = 0.07, at {lambda} = 300 nm. A relationship of d[4-CP]/dt {proportional_to} I{sup 0.8} was measured. 29 refs., 7 figs., 4 tabs.

Electronic and optical properties of TiCoSb under different pressures  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The electronic structure and optical properties of TiCoSb are studied by the first-principles calculation. It is found that the band gaps increase with the pressure increasing. It is noted that the increase of the band gap is due to the electrons of Ti 3d and Co 3d of the valence band (VB) shifting away from the Fermi level. Our calculation indicates that TiCoSb has the large density of state near the Fermi level; moreover, the changes of the density of states near the Fermi level mainly are caused by Ti 3d and Co 3d under the different pressures. It is noted that the absorption edge increases with an increase of pressure. As pressure increases, the static dielectric constants {epsilon}{sub 1}(0) decrease. All peaks of the imaginary part of the dielectric function {epsilon}{sub 2}({omega}) move towards higher energies within increasing pressure. - Graphical abstract: The first peak positions of the absorption spectrum increase and shift the high energy with an increase of pressure.

Lattice variations of Ti-6Al-4V alloy with hydrogen content  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Effect of hydrogen content on the lattice parameter of Ti-6Al-4V alloy has been investigated by X-ray diffraction. The experimental results show that the solution of hydrogen in the Ti-6Al-4V alloy affects significantly on the lattice parameters of {alpha}, {beta} and {delta} phases, especially the {beta} phase. Furthermore, the critical hydrogen content of {delta} hydride formation for Ti-6Al-4V alloy is 0.385 wt.%. When the hydrogen content is lower than the critical hydrogen content, the {delta} hydride cannot precipitate and the lattice parameter ({alpha}) of {beta} phase linearly increases with the increasing of hydrogen content. When the hydrogen content is higher than the critical hydrogen content, the {delta} hydride precipitates and the lattice parameter ({alpha}) of {beta} phase varies inconspicuously with hydrogen content. In addition, the effects of lattice variations and {delta} hydride formation on microstructure are discussed. The {alpha}/{beta} interfaces of lamellar transformed {beta} phase become fuzzy with the increasing of hydrogen content because of the lattice expansion of {beta} phase. Compared with that of the Ti-6Al-4V alloy at low hydrogen content ({=} 0.385 wt.%) were completely reversed due to the formation of {delta} hydride. - Research Highlights: {yields} A novel method for determining {delta} hydride in Ti-6Al-4V alloy is presented. {yields} The critical hydrogen content of {delta} hydride formation is 0.385 wt.%. {yields} The lattice parameter of {beta} phase can be expressed as follows: a=0.323(1+9.9x10{sup -2}C{sub H}) . {yields} Precipitation of {delta} hydride has a significant influence on the microstructure. {yields} The {alpha}/{beta} interfaces of transformed {beta} phase became fuzzy in the hydrogenated alloy.

Preparation and photocatalytic activity of high-efficiency visible-light-responsive photocatalyst SnS{sub x}/TiO{sub 2}  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Visible-light-responsive composite photocatalysts SnS{sub 2}/TiO{sub 2} and SnS/TiO{sub 2} with different mass ratios were prepared by in-situ synthesis technology in solution with commercial TiO{sub 2}. The junction-based materials SnS{sub x} (x=1, 2)/TiO{sub 2} were found to have high visible-light photocatalytic performance and possess much better activity than the single-phase SnS{sub x} or TiO{sub 2}. The greatly enhanced photocatalytic activity of the SnS{sub x}/TiO{sub 2} composites was mainly attributed to the matching band potentials and efficient charge transfer and separation at the tight-bonding interface between SnS{sub x} and TiO{sub 2}. The fact was confirmed by the comparison of photocatalytic activities of the SnS{sub 2}/TiO{sub 2} samples prepared by physical mixing method and in-situ synthesis technique. - Graphical Abstract: Visible-light-responsive composite photocatalysts SnS{sub 2}/TiO{sub 2} and SnS/TiO{sub 2} with different mass ratios were prepared by in-situ synthesis technology in solution with commercial TiO{sub 2}. The photocatalysts SnS{sub x} (x=1, 2) and SnS{sub x}/TiO{sub 2} possess excellent photocatalytic activities.

Adsorption of TiCl[sub 4], SiH[sub 4], and HCl on Si(100): Application to TiSi[sub 2] chemical vapor deposition and Si etching  

SciTech Connect

The interactions of TiCl[sub 4], SiH[sub 4], and HCl with Si(100) have been investigated by temperature programmed desorption (TPD) with the goal of better understanding the initial stages of TiSi[sub 2] chemical vapor deposition for circuit metallization and wafer etching with HCl/H[sub 2]. Coadsorption experiments with TiCl[sub 4] and SiH[sub 4] show that under most conditions H[sub 2] and SiCl[sub 2] are the main desorption products, with Ti being left behind on the surface. HCl is a minor product. However, at sufficiently low exposures of either TiCl[sub 4] or SiH[sub 4], the desorption of SiCl[sub 2] or H[sub 2], respectively, is inhibited in favor of HCl. A kinetic model involving formation of an HCl complex at defects has been formulated which explains the results quantitatively. HCl adsorption gives rise to the principal desorption products SiCl[sub 2] and H[sub 2], with HCl as a minor product. The kinetic behavior can also be explained quantitatively with the proposed model. Implications for TiSi[sub 2] growth are discussed with reference to possible growth temperatures and source gas pressures. The mechanism for etching by HCl is further elucidated.

Influence of projectile neutron number in the {sup 208}Pb({sup 48}Ti, n){sup 255}Rf and {sup 208}Pb({sup 50}Ti, n){sup 257}Rf reactions  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Four isotopes of rutherfordium, {sup 254-257}Rf, were produced by the {sup 208}Pb({sup 48}Ti, xn){sup 256-x}Rf and {sup 208}Pb({sup 50}Ti, xn){sup 258-x}Rf reactions (x=1,2) at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 88-Inch Cyclotron. Excitation functions were measured for the 1n and 2n exit channels. A maximum likelihood technique, which correctly accounts for the changing cross section at all energies subtended by the targets, was used to fit the 1n data to allow a more direct comparison between excitation functions obtained under different experimental conditions. The maximum 1n cross sections of the {sup 208}Pb({sup 48}Ti, n){sup 255}Rf and {sup 208}Pb({sup 50}Ti, n){sup 257}Rf reactions obtained from fits to the experimental data are 0.38{+-}0.07 nb and 40{+-}5 nb, respectively. Excitation functions for the 2n exit channel were also measured, with maximum cross sections of 0.40{sub -0.17}{sup +0.27} nb for the {sup 48}Ti induced reaction, and 15.7{+-}0.2 nb for the {sup 50}Ti induced reaction. The impact of the two neutron difference in the projectile on the 1n cross section is discussed. The results are compared to the Fusion by Diffusion model developed by Swiatecki, Wilczynska, and Wilczynski.

Microstructural characterization and mechanical property of active soldering anodized 6061 Al alloy using Sn-3.5Ag-xTi active solders  

SciTech Connect

Active solders Sn-3.5Ag-xTi varied from x = 0 to 6 wt.% Ti addition were prepared by vacuum arc re-melting and the resultant phase formation and variation of microstructure with titanium concentration were analyzed using X-ray diffraction, optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The Sn-3.5Ag-xTi active solders are used as metallic filler to join with anodized 6061 Al alloy for potential applications of providing a higher heat conduction path. Their joints and mechanical properties were characterized and evaluated in terms of titanium content. The mechanical property of joints was measured by shear testing. The joint strength was very dependent on the titanium content. Solder with a 0.5 wt.% Ti addition can successfully wet and bond to the anodized aluminum oxide layers of Al alloy and posses a shear strength of 16.28 {+-} 0.64 MPa. The maximum bonding strength reached 22.24 {+-} 0.70 MPa at a 3 wt.% Ti addition. Interfacial reaction phase and chemical composition were identified by a transmission electron microscope with energy dispersive spectrometer. Results showed that the Ti element reacts with anodized aluminum oxide to form Al{sub 3}Ti-rich and Al{sub 3}Ti phases at the joint interfaces. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Active solder joining of anodized Al alloy needs 0.5 wt.% Ti addition for Sn-3.5Ag. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The maximum bonding strength occurs at 3 wt.% Ti addition. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The Ti reacts with anodized Al oxide to form Al{sub 3}Ti-rich and Al{sub 3}Ti at joint interface.

Removal of heavy metals from aqueous waste streams using surface-modified nanosized TiO{sub 2} photocatalysts.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Titanium dioxide (TiO{sub 2}) colloidal particles ({approximately}45{angstrom}) whose surfaces were modified with chelating agents for photocatalytic removal of heavy-metal ions and their subsequent reduction to metallic form were investigated. Experiments were performed on nanoparticle TiO{sub 2} colloids derivatized with bidentate and tridentate ligands (thiolactic acid [TLA], cysteine, and alanine [ALA]) in batch mode in a photoreactor with 254nm light. We used catalysts designed and synthesized for selective and efficient removal of Pb and Cu with and without added hole scavenger (methanol). Parallel experiments also have been carried out in the dark to study metal ion adsorption properties. Solutions have been filtered to remove TiO{sub 2}, and metal particulates. Both the native solution and the metal deposited on the nanocrystalline TiO{sub 2} particles were analyzed. Results demonstrate that for the case of lead, the most effective TiO{sub 2} surface modifier was TLA (>99% Pb(II) removed from solution). Experiments performed to study Cn removal using TiO{sub 2} colloids modified with alanine showed that copper ions were effectively removed and reduced to metallic form in the presence of methanol.

Liquid impact erosion mechanism and theoretical impact stress analysis in TiN-coated steam turbine blade materials  

SciTech Connect

Coating of TiN film was done by reactive magnetron sputter ion plating to improve the liquid impact erosion resistance of steam turbine blade materials, 12Cr steel and Stellite 6B, for nuclear power plant application. TiN-coated blade materials were initially deformed with depressions due to plastic deformation of the ductile substrate. The increase in the curvature in the depressions induced stress concentration with increasing number of impacts, followed by circumferential fracture of the TiN coating due to the circular propagation of cracks. The liquid impact erosion resistance of the blade materials was greatly improved by TiN coating done with the optimum ion plating condition. Damage decreased with increasing TiN coating thickness. According to the theoretical analysis of stresses generated by liquid impact, TiN coating alleviated the impact stress of 12Cr steel and Stellite 6B due to stress attenuation and stress wave reactions such as reflection and transmission at the coating-substrate interface.

Current-Controlled Negative Differential Resistance due to Joule Heating in TiO2  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We show that Joule heating causes current-controlled negative differential resistance (CC-NDR) in TiO2 by constructing an analytical model of the voltage-current V(I) characteristic based on polaronic transport for Ohm's Law and Newton's Law of Cooling, and fitting this model to experimental data. This threshold switching is the 'soft breakdown' observed during electroforming of TiO2 and other transition-metal-oxide based memristors, as well as a precursor to 'ON' or 'SET' switching of unipolar memristors from their high to their low resistance states. The shape of the V(I) curve is a sensitive indicator of the nature of the polaronic conduction.

Spectral Content of 22Na/44Ti Decay Data: Implications for a Solar Influence  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report a reanalysis of data on the measured decay rate ratio $^{22}$Na/$^{44}$Ti which were originally published by Norman et al., and interpreted as supporting the conventional hypothesis that nuclear decay rates are constant and not affected by outside influences. We find upon a more detailed analysis of both the amplitude and the phase of the Norman data that they actually favor the presence of an annual variation in $^{22}$Na/$^{44}$Ti, albeit weakly. Moreover, this conclusion holds for a broad range of parameters describing the amplitude and phase of an annual sinusoidal variation in these data. The results from this and related analyses underscore the growing importance of phase considerations in understanding the possible influence of the Sun on nuclear decays. Our conclusions with respect to the phase of the Norman data are consistent with independent analyses of solar neutrino data obtained at Super-Kamiokande-I and the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory (SNO).

The influence of temperature on the color of TiO{sub 2}:Cr pigments  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

TiO{sub 2}:Cr brown pigments were prepared via a polymeric precursor derived from the Pechini method. The pigments were analyzed by infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, ultraviolet-vis spectroscopy, and colorimetry. The increase of the calcination temperature from 700 to 1000 deg. C led to a decrease in the L* values, corresponding to darkening of the pigments. The pigments obtained in this work are darker than those produced by a solid-state reaction method reported before. The change in the pigment color is due to the anatase-rutile phase transition, which leads to a shift in the charge transfer bond (Ti{sup 4+} {r_reversible} O{sup 2-}) due to a change in the crystal field around the chromophore ions. Moreover, the oxidation state of chromium was observed to change, and this also alters the color of the pigments.

INTERFACE DISORDER CONTROLLED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY YBa2Cu3O7 / SrTiO3 SUPERLATTICES  

SciTech Connect

We report on the coherent growth of ultrathin YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) layers on SrTiO3 (STO) in YBCO/STO superlattices. The termination plane of the STO is TiO2 and the CuO chains are missing at the interface. Disorder (steps) at the STO interface cause alterations of the stacking sequence of the intra-cell YBCO atomic layers. Stacking faults give rise to antiphase boundaries which break the continuity of the CuO2 planes and depress superconductivity. We show that superconductivity is directly controlled by interface disorder outlining the importance of pair breaking and localization by disorder in ultrathin layers.

Improvement of thermoelectric properties for half-Heusler TiNiSn by interstitial Ni defects  

SciTech Connect

We have synthesized off-stoichiometric Ti-Ni-Sn half-Heusler thermoelectrics in order to investigate the relation between randomly distributed defects and thermoelectric properties. A small change in the composition of Ti-Ni-Sn causes a remarkable change in the thermal conductivity. An excess content of Ni realizes a low thermal conductivity of 2.93 W/mK at room temperature while keeping a high power factor. The low thermal conductivity originates in the defects generated by an excess content of Ni. To investigate the detailed defect structure, we have performed first-principles calculations and compared with x ray photoemission spectroscopy measurement. Based on these analyses, we conclude that the excess Ni atoms randomly occupy the vacant sites in the half-Heusler structure, which play as phonon scattering centers, resulting in significant improvement of the figure of merit without any substitutions of expensive heavy elements, such as Zr and Hf.

Nanopattern-stimulated superconductor-insulator transition in thin TiN films.  

SciTech Connect

We present the results of the comparative study of transport properties of continuous and nanoperforated TiN films, enabling us to separate the disorder and the geometry effects. Nanopatterning transforms a thin TiN film into an array of superconducting weak links and eo ipso stimulates the disorder- and magnetic-field-driven superconductor-to-insulator transitions, shifting both transitions to a lower degree of microscopic disorder. We observe magnetoresistance oscillations reflecting collective phase-frustration behaviour of the multiconnected superconducting weak link network in a wide range of temperatures. We find that nanopatterning enhances the role of the two-dimensional Coulomb interaction and changes the characteristic energies of the film on length scales significantly larger than the mean free path or the superconducting coherence length.

Mesoporous TiO2 spheres with a nitridated conducting layer  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Nitridated TiO2 mesoporous spheres have been synthesized by hydrothermal processing followed by post-nitridation with NH3. Characterization data reveal a nitridated conducting layer, in addition to a mesoporous, and nanosized building-block morphology resulting in a large surface area. The samples have an average pore size and surface area of, respectively, 10 nm and 87 m2/g. The nitridated TiO2 mesoporous spheres exhibit a high capacity of > 200 mAh/g with good cyclability and high rate capability, as the nitridated conducting layer and favorable morphology of nanosized spheres provides good electrical contact, accommodates cycling induced strain smoothly, and facilitates lithium-ion diffusion.

Enhanced photocatalytic activity of Ag microgrid connected TiO{sub 2} nanocrystalline films  

SciTech Connect

One reason for the high degree of photogenerated carrier recombination was found to be the charge accumulation caused by the uneven reaction area on the photocatalyst surface. The authors connected TiO{sub 2} nanoparticles with conducting Ag microgrid. Obvious photocatalytic activity improvement (81%) over the pure TiO{sub 2} was observed, which is attributed to the electron-hole pairs separation by the metal-semiconductor contact and the large specific area of metal grid, which increased the O{sub 2} absorption and transported the electrons to the sites needed for the deoxidize reactions. This structure lowers the electron accumulation on the particles and improves the utilization ratio of the photoexcited carriers.

Importance of Diffusion in Methanol Photochemistry on TiO2(110)  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The photoactivity of methanol on the rutile TiO2(110) surface is shown to depend on the ability of methanol to diffuse on the surface and find sites active for its thermal dissociation to methoxy. Temperature programmed desorption (TPD) results show that the extent of methanol photodecomposition to formaldehyde is negligible on the clean TiO2(110) surface at 100 K due to a scarcity of sites that can convert (photoinactive) methanol to (photoactive) methoxy. The extent of photoactivity at 100 K significantly increases when methanol is coadsorbed with oxygen, however only those molecules able to adsorb near (next to) a coadsorbed oxygen species are active. Preannealing coadsorbed methanol and oxygen to above 200 K prior to UV irradiation results in a significant increase in photoactivity. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) images clearly show that the advent of increased photoactivity in TPD correlates with the onset of methanol diffusion along the surfaces Ti4+ rows at ~200 K. These results demonstrate that optimizing thermal processes (such as diffusion or proton transfer reactions) can be critical to maximizing photocatalytic reactivity on TiO2 surfaces.

Biomimetic TiO{sub 2} photocatalysis: A model system for pyotosynthesis  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Illumination of semiconductor colloids with light having energy greater than the band gap leads to the formation of electron/hold pairs. Similar to the natural photosynthetic systems, rapid recombination of photogenerated carriers is prevented by removal of one or both carriers from the semiconductor particle. Since the lifetime of charged pairs is very short, only very fast reactions with adsorbed species lead to efficient charge separation. Concurrently, surface adsorption also results in the blocking of the surface states that thermalize photogenerated charges and convert useful energy into heat. Thus, if the surface of the colloid is properly engineered the kinetics of the photochemical reactions and the redox properties of photogenerated charges in the modified colloids may be enhanced for stabilized charge separation, such as in natural photosynthesis. We have shown that adsorption of {alpha}-substituted mercapto-carboxylic acids on small particle TiO{sub 2} colloids results in the bidentate coordination of surface Ti atoms with carboxyl and mercapto groups. This complex is stabilized by the formation of a five membered ring which is the optimal configuration for octahedral coordination of Ti atoms. This surface modification of TiO{sub 2} results in the formation of a charge transfer complex that shifts the optical absorption threshold to the visible region of the spectrum (520 nm). These complexes provide more favorable absorbance properties for solar energy conversion. In this work we are applying electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) to study the transient species formed by the reactions initiated by charge transfer or colloid photoabsorption.

Efficient preparation of nanocrystalline anatase TiO{sub 2} and V/TiO{sub 2} thin layers using microwave drying and/or microwave calcination technique  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This study has demonstrated that the synthesis of TiO{sub 2} and V/TiO{sub 2} thin layers may be significantly improved and extended if microwave energy is employed during the drying and/or calcination step. Thin nanoparticulate titania layers were prepared via the sol-gel method using titanium n-butoxide as a precursor. As prepared films were then analyzed by means of various characterization techniques (Raman spectroscopy, UV/Vis, AFM, XPS) in order to determine their functional properties. The photocatalytic activities of prepared layers were quantified by the decoloring rate of Rhodamine B. All thermal treatments in microwave field were done in the same manner, by using an IR pyrometer in the microwave oven and monitoring the temperature of the heating. Nevertheless the microwave and thermally prepared materials were different. This in turn may lead to differences in their functional and also photocatalytic properties. - Graphical abstract: This study has demonstrated that the synthesis of thin layers may be improved and extended if microwave energy is employed during the preparation process. Microwave processing has the potential to reduce the time, cost and energy input for the production of thin layers.

Electronic structure of fully epitaxial Co2TiSn thin films  

SciTech Connect

In this article we report on the properties of thin films of the full Heusler compound Co{sub 2}TiSn prepared by DC magnetron co-sputtering. Fully epitaxial, stoichiometric films were obtained by deposition on MgO (001) substrates at substrate temperatures above 600 C. The films are well ordered in the L2{sub 1} structure, and the Curie temperature exceeds slightly the bulk value. They show a significant, isotropic magnetoresistance and the resistivity becomes strongly anomalous in the paramagnetic state. The films are weakly ferrimagnetic, with nearly 1 {mu}{sub B} on the Co atoms, and a small antiparallel Ti moment, in agreement with theoretical expectations. From comparison of x-ray absorption spectra on the Co L{sub 3,2} edges, including circular and linear magnetic dichroism, with ab initio calculations of the x-ray absorption and circular dichroism spectra we infer that the electronic structure of Co{sub 2}TiSn has essentially non-localized character. Spectral features that have not been explained in detail before, are explained here in terms of the final state band structure.

Controlling internal barrier in low loss BaTiO3 supercapacitors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

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

Band gap enhancement of glancing angle deposited TiO{sub 2} nanowire array  

SciTech Connect

Vertically oriented TiO{sub 2} nanowire (NW) arrays were fabricated by glancing angle deposition technique. Field emission-scanning electron microscopy shows the formation of two different diameters {approx}80 nm and {approx}40 nm TiO{sub 2} NW for 120 and 460 rpm azimuthal rotation of the substrate. The x-ray diffraction and Raman scattering depicted the presence of rutile and anatase phase TiO{sub 2}. The overall Raman scattering intensity decreased with nanowire diameter. The role of phonon confinement in anatase and rutile peaks has been discussed. The red (7.9 cm{sup -1} of anatase E{sub g}) and blue (7.4 cm{sup -1} of rutile E{sub g}, 7.8 cm{sup -1} of rutile A{sub 1g}) shifts of Raman frequencies were observed. UV-vis absorption measurements show the main band absorption at 3.42 eV, 3.48 eV, and {approx}3.51 eV for thin film and NW prepared at 120 and 460 rpm, respectively. Three fold enhance photon absorption and intense light emission were observed for NW assembly. The photoluminescence emission from the NW assembly revealed blue shift in main band transition due to quantum confinement in NW structures.

Large Thermoelectric Power Factor in TiS2 Crystal with Nearly Stoichiometric Composition  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A TiS2 crystal with a layered structure was found to have a large thermoelectric power factor. The in-plane power factor S2 /? at 300 K is 37.1 W/K2cm with resistivity (?) of 1.7 m?cm and thermopower (S) of-251 V/K, and this value is comparable to that of the best thermoelectric material, Bi2Te3 alloy. The electrical resistivity shows both metallic and highly anisotropic behaviors, suggesting that the electronic structure of this TiS2 crystal has a quasi-twodimensional nature. The large thermoelectric response can be ascribed to the large density of state just above the Fermi energy and inter-valley scattering. In spite of the large power factor, the figure of merit, ZT of TiS2 is 0.16 at 300 K, because of relatively large thermal conductivity, 68 mW/Kcm. However, most of this value comes from reducible lattice contribution. Thus, ZT can be improved by reducing lattice thermal conductivity, e.g., by introducing a rattling unit into the inter-layer sites.

High-Temperature Galling Characteristics of Ti-6Al-4V with and without Surface Treatments  

SciTech Connect

Galling is a severe form of surface damage in metals and alloys that typically arises under relatively high normal force, low-sliding speed, and in the absence of effective lubrication. It can lead to macroscopic surface roughening and seizure. The occurrence of galling can be especially problematic in high-temperature applications like diesel engine exhaust gas recirculation system components and adjustable turbocharger vanes, because suitable lubricants may not be available, moisture desorption promotes increased adhesion, and the yield strength of metals decreases with temperature. Oxidation can counteract these effects to some extent by forming lubricative oxide films. Two methods to improve the galling resistance of titanium alloy Ti-6Al-4V were investigated: (a) applying an oxygen diffusion treatment, and (b) creating a metal-matrix composite with TiB2 using a high-intensity infrared heating source. A new, oscillating three-pin-on-flat, high-temperature test method was developed and used to characterize galling behavior relative to a cobalt-based alloy (Stellite 6B ). The magnitude of the oscillating torque, the surface roughness, and observations of surface damage were used as measures of galling resistance. Owing to the formation of lubricative oxide films, the galling resistance of the Ti-alloy at 485o C, even non-treated, was considerably better than it was at room temperature. The IR-formed composite displayed reduced surface damage and lower torque than the substrate titanium alloy.

X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was used to investigate the {omega} phase in water quenched Ti-5553 alloy with a nominal composition of Ti-5Al-5V-5Mo-3Cr (wt.%), and the {omega} and the {beta} phase were distinguished by deconvoluting the XPS spectra of Al2p, V2p and Cr2p core level regions. In addition, it is found that the binding energy of core level electron of alloying elements shifts comparing with that of pure metals, and the fact was interpreted by charge redistribution model. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy technique could be used to characterize the nano-scale {omega} phase in {beta} alloys. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer We characterize the {omega} phase in Ti-5553 alloy by XPS. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Binding energy of Al2p, V2p and Cr2p electron are different in the {omega} and {beta} phase.

SciTech Connect

Ab initio calculations of the electronic structures of binary ZnO- and TiO{sub 2}-based oxides are performed to search for optimum dopants for efficient absorption of the visible part of solar radiation. Light elements B, C, and N are chosen for anion substitution. Cation substitution is simulated by 3d elements (Cr, Mn, Fe, Co) and heavy metals (Sn, Sb, Pb, Bi). The electronic structures are calculated by the full-potential linearized augmented plane wave method using the modified Becke-Johnson exchange-correlation potential. Doping is simulated by calculating supercells Zn{sub 15}D{sub 1}O{sub 16}, Zn{sub 16}O{sub 15}D{sub 1}, Ti{sub 15}D{sub 1}O{sub 32}, and Ti{sub 8}O{sub 15}D{sub 1}, where one-sixteenth of the metal (Ti, Zn) or oxygen atoms is replaced by dopant atoms. Carbon and antimony are found to be most effective dopants for ZnO: they form an energy gap {Delta}E = 1.78 and 1.67 eV, respectively. For TiO{sub 2}, nitrogen is the most effective dopant ({Delta}E = 1.76 eV).

NA-42 TI Shared Software Component Library FY2011 Final Report  

SciTech Connect

The NA-42 TI program initiated an effort in FY2010 to standardize its software development efforts with the long term goal of migrating toward a software management approach that will allow for the sharing and reuse of code developed within the TI program, improve integration, ensure a level of software documentation, and reduce development costs. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has been tasked with two activities that support this mission. PNNL has been tasked with the identification, selection, and implementation of a Shared Software Component Library. The intent of the library is to provide a common repository that is accessible by all authorized NA-42 software development teams. The repository facilitates software reuse through a searchable and easy to use web based interface. As software is submitted to the repository, the component registration process captures meta-data and provides version control for compiled libraries, documentation, and source code. This meta-data is then available for retrieval and review as part of library search results. In FY2010, PNNL and staff from the Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL) teamed up to develop a software application with the goal of replacing the aging Aerial Measuring System (AMS). The application under development includes an Advanced Visualization and Integration of Data (AVID) framework and associated AMS modules. Throughout development, PNNL and RSL have utilized a common AMS code repository for collaborative code development. The AMS repository is hosted by PNNL, is restricted to the project development team, is accessed via two different geographic locations and continues to be used. The knowledge gained from the collaboration and hosting of this repository in conjunction with PNNL software development and systems engineering capabilities were used in the selection of a package to be used in the implementation of the software component library on behalf of NA-42 TI. The second task managed by PNNL is the development and continued maintenance of the NA-42 TI Software Development Questionnaire. This questionnaire is intended to help software development teams working under NA-42 TI in documenting their development activities. When sufficiently completed, the questionnaire illustrates that the software development activities recorded incorporate significant aspects of the software engineering lifecycle. The questionnaire template is updated as comments are received from NA-42 and/or its development teams and revised versions distributed to those using the questionnaire. PNNL also maintains a list of questionnaire recipients. The blank questionnaire template, the AVID and AMS software being developed, and the completed AVID AMS specific questionnaire are being used as the initial content to be established in the TI Component Library. This report summarizes the approach taken to identify requirements, search for and evaluate technologies, and the approach taken for installation of the software needed to host the component library. Additionally, it defines the process by which users request access for the contribution and retrieval of library content.

Photocatalytic degradation of atrazine using TiO{sub 2}-impregnated mesh  

SciTech Connect

TiO{sub 2} photocatalysis is investigated is a potential means for the disposal of pesticide rinsate waste at agrochemical dealerships. The focus is an evaluation of parameters that affect the rate and mechanism of atrazine degradation using formulated atrazine (ca. 20-25 ppm), TiO{sub 2} mesh, a high-pressure mercury-vapor lamp, and solar irradiation. The UV transmission of a variety of transparent materials was measured and atrazine photocatalysis was carried out using several materials as reactor covers. The pseudo-first-order rate constants were calculated and compared to determine which cover results in the most efficient atrazine degradation. A clear acrylic gave results nearly identical to Pyrex and was chosen for future photocatalytic experiments. UV intensity and photocatalytic rate were studied as a function of different numbers of layers of TiO{sub 2} mesh. It was found that five layers give the optimum rate of degradation without employing excess mesh. In order to assess the general effect of impurities present in water on the rate of atrazine degradation, water from five different sources was obtained and each sample was analyzed for purity and used to prepare aqueous atrazine for photocatalytic degradation. The results show that contaminants specific to different locations are likely to inhibit the rate of photocatalysis to different degrees. While working to maximize the rate of atrazine degradation, studies are concurrently in progress to elucidate the mechanism of degradation for the experimental conditions employed herein. Initial results indicate that the overall degradation of atrazine to the reported end product, cyanuric acid, occurs by two distinct pathways of similar importance.

Microstructure evolution in TiN films reactively sputter deposited on multiphase substrates  

SciTech Connect

Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy (X-TEM) has been used to investigate the microstructure of TiN films deposited by reactive magnetron sputtering onto ASP 30 high speed steel (HSS) substrates. ASP 30 is a multiphase material consisting of a martensitic matrix with MC and M/sub 6/C transition--metal particles embedded in it. The TiN films were approx.4 ..mu..m thick and were grown at substrate temperatures T/sub s/ between 200 and 550/sup 0/C. The X-TEM results showed that the film microstructure was very nonhomogeneous. A dense columnar morphology was observed above both the martensitic and M/sub 6/C substrate phases. The average column diameter ranged from 15 nm (T/sub s/ = 200/sup 0/C) to 50 nm (T/sub s/ = 550/sup 0/C) near the film/substrate interface over the martensitic phase and was in a factor of 2 less in the film regions adjacent to the M/sub 6/C phase. increased in both regions to 100 nm (T/sub s/ = 200/sup 0/C) to 150 nm (T/sub s/ = 550/sup 0/C) near the surface of the films. TiN grew epitaxially on MC particles but contained a high dislocation density which (except at 550/sup 0/C where some of the epitaxial grains extended throughout the entire film thickness) eventually coalesced to form low-angle grain boundaries and, finally, high-angle boundaries.

Ferromagnetism in Co-doped (La,Sr)TiO3  

SciTech Connect

The origin of ferromagnetism in Co-doped (La,Sr)TiO{sub 3} epitaxial thin films is discussed. While the as-grown samples are not ferromagnetic at room temperature or at 10 K, ferromagnetism at room temperature appears after annealing the films in reducing conditions and disappears after annealing in oxidizing conditions. Magnetic measurements, x-ray absorption spectroscopy, x-ray photoemission spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy experiments indicate that within the resolution of the instruments the activation of the ferromagnetism is not due to the presence of pure Co.

Controlling Atomic Layer Deposition of TiO2 in Aerogels through Surface Functionalization  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This report demonstrates a chemical functionalization method for controlling atomic layer deposition (ALD) of TiO{sub 2} in low-density nanoporous materials. Functionalization of silica aerogel with trimethylsilane is shown to strongly suppress TiO{sub 2} growth via ALD. Subsequent modification of the functionalization through selective removal of the hydrocarbon groups reactivates the aerogel towards TiO{sub 2} deposition. These results demonstrate the potential use of ALD as a selective tool for creating novel nanoporous materials. Nanoporous materials present significant technological advantage for a wide range of applications, including catalysis, energy storage and conversion, nanoelectronics to name just a few (1-4). Hence, there is considerable interest in developing synthetic pathways for the fabrication of nanoporous materials with tailored properties. Aerogels (AGs) are unique low-density, open-cell porous materials consisting of submicrometer pores and ligaments that can be used as a robust material platform for designing novel nanoporous materials. In recent years, a synthetic approach based on ALD on AG templates has emerged as a promising method for the directed growth of nanoporous materials (5-11, 18). This approach has been used successfully to prepare millimeter-sized high aspect ratio aerogels coated uniformly with zinc oxide (ZnO), tungsten (W) and alumina (Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}) (10, 11). The ALD process utilizes two sequential, self-limiting surface reactions resulting in a layer-by-layer growth mode. The self limiting nature of the surface reactions makes ALD a particularly suitable technique for uniform deposition onto high aspect ratio porous substrates. Additionally, chemical specificity of the surface reactions in ALD enables one to control the deposition process through selective functionalization of the substrate surface. In fact the functionalization of planar substrates such as silicon wafers with organosilane groups (R{sub n}SiX{sub 4-n} (n = 1-3)) has been shown to deactivate the substrate towards ZrO{sub 2}, HfO{sub 2}, ZnO, and TiO{sub 2} ALD processes (12-16). A possible mechanism for the deactivation effect is the blocking of surface functional groups, such as hydroxyl (OH) moieties, which serve as chemisorption sites for the ALD precursors and hence are essential for nucleating the deposition process. Henceforth, we shall refer to these surface functional groups as nucleation sites for the ALD process.

Nanomechanical and nanotribological properties of Nb substituted TiN thin films  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Nanomechanical and nanotribological properties of Ti{sub 1-x}Nb{sub x}N (0{<=}x{<=}1) thin films were investigated as a function x. The films were deposited onto polycrystalline nuclear grade 316LN stainless steel (SS) substrate by radio frequency magnetron sputtering in 100% N{sub 2} plasma. The hardness and Young's modulus increased while the friction coefficient and wear volume decreased with increasing Nb substitution. The highest hardness achieved was 31GPa for x=0.77. At the same Nb concentration, the friction coefficient was 0.15 and the elastic recovery was 60%.

Intrinsic Spin-Orbit Coupling in Superconducting Delta-Doped SrTiO3 Heterostructures  

SciTech Connect

We report the violation of the Pauli limit due to intrinsic spin-orbit coupling in SrTiO{sub 3} heterostructures. Via selective doping down to a few nanometers, a two-dimensional superconductor is formed, geometrically suppressing orbital pair-breaking. The spin-orbit scattering is exposed by the robust in-plane superconducting upper critical field, exceeding the Pauli limit by a factor of 4. Transport scattering times several orders of magnitude higher than for conventional thin film superconductors enables a new regime to be entered, where spin-orbit coupling effects arise non-perturbatively.

Enhancing the electron mobility of SrTiO{sub 3} with strain  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We demonstrate, using high-mobility SrTiO{sub 3} thin films grown by molecular beam epitaxy, that stress has a pronounced influence on the electron mobility in this prototype complex oxide. Moderate strains result in more than 300% increases in the electron mobilities with values exceeding 120 000 cm{sup 2}/V s and no apparent saturation in the mobility gains. The results point to a range of opportunities to tailor high-mobility oxide heterostructure properties and open up ways to explore oxide physics.

Low resistance Ti Ohmic contacts to 4H-SiC by reducing barrier heights without high temperature annealing  

SciTech Connect

Ti Ohmic contacts to relatively highly doped (1 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup 18} cm{sup -3}) n-type 4H-SiC have been produced, without high temperature annealing, by means of low temperature electronic cyclotron resonance microwave hydrogen plasma pre-treatment (HPT) of the SiC surface. The as-deposited Ti/4H-SiC contacts show Ohmic properties, and the specific contact resistance obtained is as low as 2.07 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup -4}{Omega}{center_dot}cm{sup 2} after annealing at low temperatures (400 Degree-Sign C). This is achieved by low barrier height at Ti/SiC interface, which could be attributed to decrease of surface states density by the HPT releasing Fermi level pinning, and to band-gap narrowing, image-force, and thermionic-field emission at high doping.

Structural and Thermal Characterization of Ti+O Ion Implanted UltraHigh Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE)  

SciTech Connect

In this work, Metal-Gas Hybrid Ion Implantation technique was used as a tool for the surface modification of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE). Samples were Ti+O ion implanted by using Metal-Vapour Vacuum Arc (MEVVA) ion implanter to a fluence of 5x10{sup 16} ion/cm{sup 2} for each species and extraction voltage of 30 kV. Untreated and surface treated samples were investigated by Rutherford Back Scattering (RBS) Spectrometry, Attenuated Total Reflectance-Fourier Transform Infrared (ATR-FTIR) Spectroscopy, Thermo Gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Results indicate that Ti+O ion implantation can be applied on UHMWPE surfaces successfully. ATR-FTIR spectra indicate that the C-H concentration on the surface decreased after Ti+O implantation. Thermal characterization with TGA and DSC shows that polymeric decomposition temperature is shifted after ion implantation.

Photoconductivity and Non-Exponential Relaxation at Insulating LaAlO3/SrTiO3 Interfaces  

SciTech Connect

LaAlO{sub 3} is grown on SrO terminated (100) SrTiO{sub 3}, and (110) SrTiO{sub 3}, producing insulating heterointerfaces without light. Photocurrent spectroscopy at low temperatures reveals a broad distribution of interface states between 2 eV and 2.7 eV at both interfaces, with a higher density in the (110) case concomitant with relatively shallow traps. The photocurrent relaxation can be well fitted by a stretched exponential form, confirming energetically distributed electron traps. Photo-carrier lifetimes are larger than a few hundred seconds for optical excitation approaching the SrTiO{sub 3} band-gap energy, providing the opportunity to study transient light-induced properties at low temperatures.

Luminescence Spectroscopy of Eu-doped (Ca,Sr)TiO{sub 3} Nanocrystals Prepared by Using Sonochemical Method  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Perovskite-type compounds (ABO{sub 3}) of (Ca,Sr)TiO{sub 3} doped with trivalent europium (Eu{sup 3+}) were synthesized by sonochemical techniques. Powder X-ray diffraction measurement on (Ca,Sr)TiO{sub 3} were used to identify the perovskite crystal structure. The photoluminescence property in (Ca,Sr)TiO{sub 3} with europium substitution several atoms in the host lattice was also studied. Further, the photoluminescence spectra were taken at room temperature. The structural difference between fourth kinds of doped samples with different heating temperatures accounts for the intensification of the luminescence intensity. The presented measurements monitor the emission wavelengths of the Eu{sup 3+} with emission peaks at 593, 615 and 700 nm. The obtained results were discussed with respect to developed preparation method.

TiN was investigated as a potential spacer material in L1{sub 0}-FePt based pseudo spin valves (PSV). PSVs with the structure MgO/L1{sub 0}-Fe{sub 50}Pt{sub 50} (20 nm)/TiN (5 nm)/L1{sub 0}-Fe{sub 50}Pt{sub 50} (x nm) were fabricated, where x was varied from 5 to 20 nm. The highest giant magnetoresistance (GMR) ratio of 0.61% was obtained for the PSV with a top L1{sub 0}-FePt thickness of 20 nm. Contributions to the GMR arose from both the spin dependent scattering at the FePt/TiN interfaces and domain wall resistivity. Magnon magnetoresistance was also observed in the fabricated PSVs.

Growth of SrTiO{sub 3}(110) film by oxide molecular beam epitaxy with feedback control  

SciTech Connect

By controlling the growth of complex oxide films with atomic precision, emergent phenomena and fascinating properties have been discovered, and even been manipulated. With oxide molecular beam epitaxy (OMBE) we grow high-quality SrTiO{sub 3}(110) films by evaporating Sr and Ti metals with separate controls of the open/close timing of the shutters. The incident electron beam angle of the reflective high energy electron diffraction (RHEED) is adjusted to make the (01) beam sensitive to surface chemical concentration. By monitoring such an intensity, we tune the shutter timing to synchronize the evaporation amount of Sr and Ti in real-time. The intensity is further used as a feedback control signal for automatic growth optimization to fully compensate the possible fluctuation of the source flux rates upon extended growth. A 22 nm-thick film is obtained with the precision of metal cation stoichiometry better than 0.5%.

M5Si3(M=Ti, Nb, Mo) Based Transition-Metal Silicides for High Temperature Applications  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Transition metal silicides are being considered for future engine turbine components at temperatures up to 1600 C. Although significant improvement in high temperature strength, room temperature fracture toughness has been realized in the past decade, further improvement in oxidation resistance is needed. Oxidation mechanism of Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3}-based alloys was investigated. Oxidation behavior of Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3}-based alloy strongly depends on the atmosphere. Presence of Nitrogen alters the oxidation behavior of Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3} by nucleation and growth of nitride subscale. Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3.2} and Ti{sub 5}Si{sub 3}C{sub 0.5} alloys exhibited an excellent oxidation resistance in nitrogen bearing atmosphere due to limited dissolution of nitrogen and increased Si/Ti activity ratio. MoSi{sub 2} coating developed by pack cementation to protect Mo-based Mo-Si-B composites was found to be effective up to 1500 C. Shifting coating composition to T1+T2+Mo{sub 3}Si region showed the possibility to extend the coating lifetime above 1500 C by more than ten times via formation of slow growing Mo{sub 3}Si or T2 interlayer without sacrificing the oxidation resistance of the coating. The phase equilibria in the Nb-rich portion of Nb-B system has been evaluated experimentally using metallographic analysis and differential thermal analyzer (DTA). It was shown that Nb{sub ss} (solid solution) and NbB are the only two primary phases in the 0-40 at.% B composition range, and the eutectic reaction L {leftrightarrow} Nb{sub SS} + NbB was determined to occur at 2104 {+-} 5 C by DTA.

Electrochemical studies of Mg-doped Li{sub 4}Ti{sub 5}O{sub 12} anodes.  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Commercial lithium-ion batteries use carbon as the material of choice for the anode. However, because lithiated carbon has a voltage very close to the potential of metallic lithium, there are concerns about the safety of fully-charged carbon electrodes. The safety issue can be addressed by using a material that intercalates lithium at a higher voltage. A promising material is the lithium-titanium-oxide spinel material Li{sub 4}Ti{sub 5}O{sub 12} which can accommodate 3 Li{sup +} ions per formula unit (corresponding to 175 mAh/g) in a two-phase reaction at approximately 1.5 V versus lithium. One of the drawbacks of this system is that the end-member Li{sub 4}Ti{sub 5}O{sub 12} is electronically insulating, which limits electron transfer at the electrode surface. By doping this material with magnesium, Li{sub 4{minus}x}Mg{sub x}Ti{sub 5}O{sub 12}, we introduced mixed-valent Ti{sup 4+}/Ti{sup 3+} into the stoichiometric spinel structure and thereby increased the electronic conductivity by several orders of magnitude without sacrificing electrochemical performance. In this presentation we will provide data on the extent of the solid solution in Li{sub 4{minus}x}Mg{sub x}Ti{sub 5}O{sub 12}, the variation of electronic conductivity as a function of dopant concentration and the rate capability of the doped material.

The Effects of Pressure on the Laser Initiation of TiHx/KC104 and Other Pyrotechnics  

SciTech Connect

The ignition thresholds of TiHx/KC104, Mg/Teflon, and an A1-torch mix are measured as a function of gas pressure for ignition by 514.5 nm pulses from an argon ion laser. The TiHx/KC104 system in argon gas has three distinct pressure regimes. The thresholds are very high below about 0.3 MPa, decrease rapidly between 0.3 and 1.5 MPa, and decrease gradually and become constant between 1.5 and 7 MPa. Mg/Teflon and the A1-torch mix also have decreasing thresholds with increasing gas pressures and decreasing pellet densities. Ignition pulse lengths between 0.25 and 20 milliseconds at a spot diameter of 65 microns in the TiHx/KC104 system indicate that the thresholds are predominantly power, not energy, thresholds for pulses longer than one millisecond. The increase in threshold power below one millisecond is consistent with a calculated time to reach thermal equilibrium of 0.96 milliseconds. The effect of beam diameters between 40 and 175 microns on the TiHx/KC104 thresholds is consistent with ignitions occurring at approximately the same temperature at the center of the beam. TiHx/KC104 and Zr/KC104/Viton/Graphite pyrotechnics are also ignitied in sealed devices through sapphire windows. Ignition thresholds are comparable to those on open surfaces in pressures of 0.1 to 0.5 MPa which suggests that samples first decompose and ignite under a pocket of pressure. Ignition failures in TiHx/KC104 and in low density Zr/KC104/Viton/Graphite samples are attributed to increased porosity and/or gaps near the windows which allow reaction products to escape from the ignition zone.

INVESTIGATION OF NOVEL ALLOY TiC-Ni-Ni3Al FOR SOLID OXIDE FUEL CELL INTERCONNECT APPLICATIONS  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Solid oxide fuel cell interconnect materials must meet stringent requirements. Such interconnects must operate at temperatures approaching 800 C while resisting oxidation and reduction, which can occur from the anode and cathode materials and the operating environment. They also must retain their electrical conductivity under these conditions and possess compatible coefficients of thermal expansion as the anode and cathode. Results are presented in this report for fuel cell interconnect candidate materials currently under investigation based upon nano-size titanium carbide (TiC) powders. The TiC is liquid phase sintered with either nickel (Ni) or nickel-aluminide (Ni{sub 3}Al) in varying concentrations. The oxidation resistance of the submicron grain TiC-metal materials is presented as a function weight change versus time at 700 C and 800 C for varying content of metal/intermetallic in the system. Electrical conductivity at 800 C as a function of time is also presented for TiC-Ni to demonstrate the vitality of these materials for interconnect applications. TGA studies showed that the weight gain was 0.8 mg/cm{sup 2} for TiC(30)-Ni(30wt.%) after 100 hours in wet air at 800 C and the weight gain was calculated to be 0.5205 mg/cm{sup 2} for TiC(30)- Ni(10 wt.%) after 100 hours at 700 C and 100 hours at 800 C. At room temperature the electrical conductivity was measured to be 2444 1/[ohm.cm] for TiC-Ni compositions. The electrical conductivities at 800 C in air was recorded to be 19 1/[ohm.cm] after 125 hours. Two identical samples were supplied to PNNL (Dr. Jeff Stevenson) for ASR testing during the pre-decision period and currently they are being tested there. Fabrication, oxidation resistance and electrical conductivity studies indicate that TiC-Ni-Ni{sub 3}Al ternary appears to be a very important system for the development of interconnect composition for solid oxide fuel cells.

Ion mass dependence of the etch yield of SrTiO{sub 3} films in reactive plasmas

The influence of the positive ion composition on the ion-assisted chemical etch yield of SrTiO{sub 3} films in Ar/SF{sub 6} plasmas is investigated using a parametric approach. The etch yield is found to decrease as the concentration fraction of molecular ions increases. Introducing the concept of effective mass for both ions and SrTiO{sub 3}, these experimental results are quantitatively explained in the framework of a well-established model originally developed to describe the sputtering of single-atom materials by noble monoatomic ions.

Metal-to-Insulator Transition in Anatase TiO2 Thin Films Induced by Growth Rate Modulation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We demonstrate control of the carrier density of single phase anatase TiO{sub 2} thin films by nearly two orders of magnitude by modulating the growth kinetics during pulsed laser deposition, under fixed thermodynamic conditions. The resistivity and the intensity of the photoluminescence spectra of these TiO{sub 2} samples, both of which correlate with the number of oxygen vacancies, are shown to depend strongly on the growth rate. A quantitative model is used to explain the carrier density changes.

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

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

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

Epitaxial growth of Ti{sub 3}SiC{sub 2} thin films with basal planes parallel or orthogonal to the surface on {alpha}-SiC  

SciTech Connect

The growth of Ti{sub 3}SiC{sub 2} thin films were studied onto {alpha}-SiC substrates differently oriented by thermal annealing of TiAl layers deposited by magnetron sputtering. For any substrate's orientation, transmission electron microscopy coupled with x-ray diffraction showed the coherent epitaxial growth of Ti{sub 3}SiC{sub 2} films along basal planes of SiC. Specifically for the (1120) 4H-SiC, Ti{sub 3}SiC{sub 2} basal planes are found to be orthogonal to the surface. The continuous or textured nature of Ti{sub 3}SiC{sub 2} films does not depend of the SiC stacking sequence and is explained by a step-flow mechanism of growth mode. The ohmic character of the contact was confirmed by current-voltage measurements.

Electronic structure of delta-doped La:SrTiO{sub 3} layers by hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We have employed hard x-ray photoemission (HAXPES) to study a delta-doped SrTiO{sub 3} layer that consisted of a 3-nm thickness of La-doped SrTiO{sub 3} with 6% La embedded in a SrTiO{sub 3} film. Results are compared to a thick, uniformily doped La:SrTiO{sub 3} layer. We find no indication of a band offset for the delta-doped layer, but evidence of the presence of Ti{sup 3+} in both the thick sample and the delta-layer, and indications of a density of states increase near the Fermi energy in the delta-doped layer. These results further demonstrate that HAXPES is a powerful tool for the non-destructive investigation of deeply buried doped layers.

Enhanced performance of dye-sensitized solar cells based on TiO{sub 2} with NIR-absorption and visible upconversion luminescence  

SciTech Connect

TiO{sub 2} with NIR-absorption and visible upconversion luminescence (UC-TiO{sub 2}) is prepared by a sol-gel method and calcined at 700 Degree-Sign C for 6 h. The material broadens the response region of dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) from an ultraviolet-visible region to the whole region of the solar spectrum. It shifts NIR sunlight to visible light which matches the strong absorbing region of the dye (N719). DSSCs based on UC-TiO{sub 2} achieved higher conversion efficiency than that on raw TiO{sub 2}. UC-TiO{sub 2} was mixed with commercial raw TiO{sub 2} as additive, and the short-circuit current density, open-circuit voltage and conversion efficiency of the DSSC reached to the optimum values 13.38 mA/cm{sup 2}, 0.78 V and 6.63% (AM1.5 global), comparing with the blank values: 7.99 mA/cm{sup 2}, 0.75 V and 4.07%, respectively. Also the mechanisms of upconversion by multiphoton absorption and energy transfer processes are interpreted in this paper. - Graphical abstract: By introducing TiO{sub 2} with NIR-absorption and visible up-conversion luminescence into DSSC, a signal reflection was explored from ultra-violet region to visible region, and to near-IR region. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer TiO{sub 2} with NIR-absorption and visible up-conversion luminescence (UC-TiO{sub 2}) was prepared by a sol-gel method. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer A systematic characterization and analysis was carried out to discuss the mechanism. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer A significantly enhanced performance of DSSC was explored by using UC-TiO{sub 2} as an additive.

Local Co Structure in Epitaxial Cox Ti?-xO?-x Anatase  

SciTech Connect

The quest for diluted magnetic semiconductors (DMS) which retain their magnetism at and above room temperature is spanning several classes of materials. Such materials are critically important in the development of spintronics as spin injectors for semiconductor heterostructures that can operate without cryogenic cooling. Group IV, III-V, and II-VI DMS materials typically exhibit Curie temperatures (Tc) well below ambient due to weak interaction of the magnetic impurities. Calculations based on the Zener model of magnetism suggest that the strongest interaction is that mediated by holes, and experimental studies carried out to date have borne out this prediciton. One notable exception is that of Mn-doped GaN, which grows n-type by gas-source molecular beam epitaxy under certain conditions, and appears to be ferromagnetic at room temperature. In addition, it has recently been shown that at least one oxide semiconductor - Co-doped TiO? anatase or CoxTi?-xO?-x - is ferromagnetic well above room temperature when doped n-type by oxygen vacancies for x < ~0.1, but the mechanism of magnetism remains unknown.

Nanometer-scale striped surface terminations on fractured SrTiO{sub 3} surfaces.  

SciTech Connect

Using cross-sectional scanning tunneling microscopy on in situ fractured SrTiO{sub 3}, one of the most commonly used substrates for the growth of complex oxide thin films and superlattices, atomically smooth terraces have been observed on (001) surfaces. Furthermore, it was discovered that fracturing this material at room temperature results in the formation of stripe patterned domains having characteristic widths ({approx}10 to {approx}20 nm) of alternating surface terminations that extend over a long range. Spatial characterization utilizing spectroscopy techniques revealed a strong contrast in the electronic structure of the two domains. Combining these results with topographic data, we are able to assign both TiO{sub 2} and SrO terminations to their respective domains. The results of this experiment reveal that fracturing this material leads to reproducibly flat surfaces that can be characterized at the atomic-scale and suggest that this technique can be utilized for the study of technologically relevant complex oxide interfaces.

Switchable Induced Polarization in LaAlO3/SrTiO3 Heterostructures  

SciTech Connect

Demonstration of a tunable conductivity of the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 interfaces drew significant attention to the development of oxide electronic structures where electronic confinement can be reduced to the nanometer range. While the mechanisms for the conductivity modulation are quite different and include metal insulator phase transition and surface charge writing, generally it is implied that this effect is a result of electrical modification of the LaAlO3 surface (either due to electrochemical dissociation of surface adsorbates or free charge deposition) leading to the change in the twodimensional electron gas (2DEG) density at the LaAlO3/SrTiO3 (LAO/STO) interface. In this paper, using piezoresponse force microscopy we demonstrate a switchable electromechanical response of the LAO overlayer, which we attribute to the motion of oxygen vacancies through the LAO layer thickness. These electrically induced reversible changes in bulk stoichiometry of the LAO layer are a signature of a possible additional mechanism for nanoscale oxide 2DEG control on LAO/STO interfaces.

Wetting at the BaTiO{sub 3}/Pt interface  

SciTech Connect

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

Dynamic fracture behavior of Ti-6Al-4V alloy with various stabilities of [beta] phase  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The effect of stability of the body-centered cubic (bcc) [beta] phase on the dynamic fracture behavior of Ti-6Al-4V alloy at room temperature and 77 K has been studied. The presence of a highly unstable [beta] phase in the quenched alloy leads to a decrease in both the dynamic fracture toughness and the crack propagation energy, and this decrease becomes more pronounced when test temperature is reduced to 77 K. Somewhat improved fracture characteristics were obtained by applying anneal procedure to receive a fully stable [beta] phase. The highest fracture toughness as well as the greatest crack propagation resistance were observed in the air-cooled grade, where the lattice parameter of the bcc phase was intermediate between those pertaining to quenched and annealed Ti-6Al-4V alloys. The effect is attributed to the vanadium content in the [beta] phase, which is sufficiently high to suppress deformation-induced transformation. On the other hand, the V content should be low enough to retard ductile-brittle transition, typical for the bcc metals at cryogenic temperatures. As a result, marked toughening can be achieved, so that the lowest application temperature of high-strength titanium alloys containing the bcc phase can be decreased significantly.

Photocatalytic destruction of atrazine using TiO{sub 2} mesh  

SciTech Connect

The optimization of a technology for the TiO{sub 2}-mediated solar photocatalysis of atrazine is described. The target users of this technology might be agrochemical dealers, manufacturers, and possibly farmers. Studies were performed to determine the ideal cover material for such a reactor based on UV light transmitting properties. The best cover material was a UV transmitting acrylic. The TiO{sub 2} employed for this technology was bound to fiberglass mesh. The effects of mesh amount, stirring, water impurities, concentration of pesticide, and source of UV light (mercury vapor lamp vs. solar) were also determined. The most efficient photocatalysis was achieved using five layers of mesh, a stirred reaction, water low in carbonate and other ions, a dilute waste stream, and solar irradiation rather than a mercury-vapor lamp. The formation and disappearance of eight intermediates were followed in a 2429 h indoor experiment comparing pure and formulated atrazine. A modified reaction mechanism was proposed based on studies of the detected intermediates.

TiNiSn: A gateway to the (1,1,1) intermetallic compounds  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Recent awareness of the transport properties of Skutterudite pnictides has stimulated an interest in numerous other intermetallic compounds having a gap in the density of states at the Fermi level including the MNiSn compounds where M = (Ti, Zr, Hf). These intermetallic half-Heusler compounds are characterized by high Seebeck coefficients ({minus}150 to {minus}300 {micro}V/deg.) and reasonable carrier mobilities (30 to 50 cm{sup 2}/V-s) at room temperature which make them attractive candidates for intermediate temperature thermoelectric applications. Samples of TiNiSn were prepared by arc melting and homogenized by heat treatment. The temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity, Seebeck coefficient, and thermal diffusivity of these samples was characterized between 22 C and 900 C. The electrical resistivity and thermopower both decrease with temperature although the resistivity decreases at a faster rate. Electrical power factors in excess of 25 {micro}W/cm-C{sup 2}
