Title: Search for small-angle neutron scattering in MnO at 1700K

Abstract

A preliminary small-angle scattering (SANS) experiment has been performed on MnO single crystal at the Intense Pulsed Neutron Source. The experiment was preformed at 1700/sup 0/K at oxygen partial pressures of 2.2 x 10/sup -4/, 1 x 10/sup 2/, and 2 x 10/sup 2/ Pa, which resulted in deviations from stoichiometry of about 0.0015, 0.082, and 0.127. No statistically significant change in SANS was observed at this temperature with the pressure changes. Neither was any significant change observed in the wavelength-dependent sample transmission, also measured in-situ as a function of pressure. Therefore, either clustering of cation vacancies is negligible in MnO for these conditions, or the clusters are smaller than about 5 A. Of proposed cluster configurations, only the existence of the smallest (4:1, 6:2, or possible 8:3) appears to be consistent with these results.

  • Doped polyaniline emeraldine salts (PANI-ES) exhibit good environmental stability with a high level of conductivity (1 to 300 S/cm). However, they suffer from the fact that they have poor mechanical properties and must be blended with an insulating host polymer to be useful in industrial applications. Polyaniline blends are a new type of conducting material that typically show very low onsets of conductivity unlike that of metal filled blends. This is primarily due to the unique cellular geometry of the PANI-ES that is formed within the insulating host polymer. The formation of this immiscible polymer network may be due inmore » part to structural and conformational differences in the blend components.« less
  • Ultra small angle neutron scattering instruments have recently covered the gap between the size resolution available with conventional intermediate angle neutron scattering and small angle neutron scattering instruments on one side and optical microscopy on the other side. Rocks showing fractal behavior in over two decades of momentum transfer and seven orders of magnitude of intensity are examined and fractal parameters are extracted from the combined USANS and SANS curves.
  • Aqueous solutions of sodium p-(1-pentylheptyl)benzenesulfonate (6-PhC/sub 12/SNa) at 45/sup 0/C were investigated using static and dynamic light scattering (LS) and static small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) measurements. The SANS studies in D/sub 2/O were performed in the concentration range 0.0099-0.0991 M; Guinier radii (R/sub G/) of 13.7 to 16.6 A were determined. Scattering curves for the more concentrated solutions show an interaction peak which arises from intermicellar correlations; the effect of added NaCl, at a constant surfactant concentration of 0.0845 M, on these interactions was also studied. The SANS measurements were complemented by static and dynamic LS studies on 0.0845 Mmore » 6-PhC/sub 12/SNa in H/sub 2/O, with and without added salt. Non-single exponential behavior was observed in the intensity autocorrelation functions, and two interpretations of the slow process(es) are briefly discussed.« less
  • As part of our work on the, structure of composite materials we have been exploring the use of small-angle neutron scattering using the method of contrast variation to dissect the component form, structure and distribution. This approach has resulted in a new look at very old problem reinforcement of elastomers by carbon black. Using this approach we studied an experimental high surface area (HSA) carbon black and a gel of ``HSA-bound`` rubber in cyclohexane/deuterocyclohexane mixtures. HSA in cyclohexane is found to be short rodlike particle aggregates. The aggregates have a shell-core structure with a high density graphitic outer shell andmore » an inner core of lower density amorphous carbon. The core is continuous throughout the carbon black aggregate, making the aggregate a stiff, integral unit. Contrast variation of swollen composite gels shows that there are two length scales in the gel structure. Above 10 {Angstrom}, scattering from carbon black predominates, and below 10 {Angstrom} the scattering is from both carbon black and the elastomer. The HSA in the composite is completely embedded in polyisoprene. An estimate of the carbon black structure factor shows strong exclusion of neighboring aggregates, probably from excluded volume effects. The surface structure of the carbon black is unaltered by the interactions with elastomer and appears smooth over length scales above about 10 {Angstrom}. These results show that contrast variation can provide information on composite structure that is not available by other means. This information relates to the reinforcement mechanism of elastomers by carbon blacks.« less
