  • Electron field emission from carbon nanotubes prepared using microwave plasma assisted CVD has been investigated. The nanotubes, ranging from 50 to 120 nm in diameter and a few tens of microns in length, were formed under methane and hydrogen plasma at 720 C with the aid of iron-oxide particles. The morphology and growth direction of the nanotubes are found to be strongly influenced by the flow ratio of methane to hydrogen. However, the electron field emission from these massive nanotubes show similar characteristics, i.e., high emission current at low electric fields.
  • The microstructure and tribological properties of carbon film produced by ion beam assisted plasma deposition in a plasma source ion implantation (PS2) chamber with energies varied from 0 to 30 keV are examined. The process is illustrated schematically, and Raman spectra as well as TEM images and corresponding diffraction patterns of carbon films are shown.
  • This paper presents some selected data concerning the different processing routes being used in the IRC for the production of Ti-based alloys. The process which underpins all other production of alloys in this program is plasma melting. Material produced via this route is either HIPped or isothermally forged if no further melting schedule is planned. Some plasma melted ingots are used as feed stock either for atomization, for spray-forming or for investment casting. The facilities used for these programs are briefly described and the different structures obtained for the different process routes are presented together with a selection of somemore » of the properties of composites prepared via gas atomization and HIPping.« less
  • In this study, the differences of structure and properties development during stabilization and carbonization between highly oriented and partially oriented polyethylene precursors were investigated. The effect of stabilization temperatures, time and tension on conversion process was studied using thermal analysis such as differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetric analysis, scanning electron microscopy, single filament mechanical properties. Comparison of resultant carbon fibers from these two kinds of precursor fibers showed that using partially oriented polyethylene precursor may reduce the stabilization time and temperature, being diffusion-controlled process of sulfonation for stabilization. The mechanical properties of the resultant carbon fibers were evaluated.
  • Au/SnO{sub 2} core-shell structure nanoparticles were synthesized using the microwave hydrothermal method. The optical and morphological properties of these particles were examined and compared with those obtained by the conventional hydrothermal method. In microwave preparation, the peak position of the UV-visible plasmon absorption band of Au nanoparticles was red-shifted from 520 to 543 nm, due to the formation of an SnO{sub 2} shell. An SnO{sub 2} shell formation was complete within 5 min. The thickness of the SnO{sub 2} shell was 10-12 nm, and the primary particle size of SnO{sub 2} crystallites was 3-5 nm. For the core-shell particles preparedmore » by a conventional hydrothermal method, the shell formed over the entire synthesis period and was not as crystalline as those produced, using the microwave method. The relationship between the morphological and spectroscopic properties and the crystallinity of the SnO{sub 2} shell are discussed. -- Graphical abstract: In microwave preparation, the peak position of UV-visible absorption band of Au nanoparticles was red-shifted from 520 to 543 nm, due to the formation of an SnO{sub 2} shell with high crystallinity.
