  • The diffusion coefficient for sulfuric acid has been experimental determined. The resulting value has been compared with others obtained by applying three different theoretical methods to the existing conditions in a typical lead-acid cell. A noticeable difference between experimental and theoretical values has been found. This difference is attributed to special conditions in lead-acid batteries that improve diffusion and make the coefficient greater.
  • The principal sources of fracture in ceramic polycrystals have been identified; they include surface cracks produced during surface finishing and voids, inclusions, or large grains generated during processing. The dominance of a specific fracture source depends on the microstructure, test temperature, and stress distribution. The origins of processing-induced defects have been examined and certain dominant processing variables identified. 42 refs.
  • Local atomic structural investigations of LiAlD4, which is composed of Li+ and [AlD4], at 40 300 K were studied by total neutron scattering combined with pair distribution function (PDF) analysis for understanding of hydrogen release from LiAlD4. The results showed that the Al D pair distribution almost unchanged, while the Li D pair distribution clearly started to broaden and shrink above 200 250 K. The shrinking of the Li D pair distribution might lead to the local generation of LiD, which was speculated as the precursory phenomenon for the hydrogen release from LiAlD4.
  • Amorphous (a-)Si-based materials always attracted attention of the scientific community, especially after their use in commercial devices like solar cells and thin film transistors in the 1980s. In addition to their technological importance, the study of a-Si-based materials also present some interesting theoretical-practical challenges. Their crystallization as induced by metal species is one example, which is expected to influence the development of electronic-photovoltaic devices. In fact, the amorphous-to-crystalline transformation of the a-SiAl system has been successfully applied to produce solar cells suggesting that further improvements can be achieved. Stimulated by these facts, this work presents a comprehensive study of themore » a-SiAl system. The samples, with Al contents in the ∼0−15 at. % range, were made in the form of thin films and were characterized by different spectroscopic techniques. The experimental results indicated that: (a) increasing amounts of Al changed both the atomic structure and the optical properties of the samples; (b) thermal annealing induced the crystallization of the samples at temperatures that depend on the Al concentration; and (c) the crystallization process was also influenced by the annealing duration and the structural disorder of the samples. All of these aspects were addressed in view of the existing models of the a-Si crystallization, which were also discussed to some extent. Finally, the ensemble of experimental results suggest an alternative method to produce cost-effective crystalline Si films with tunable structural-optical properties.« less
