Binary-phased nanoparticles for enhanced thermoelectric properties
Binary-phased PbTe-PtTe2 nanoparticles are synthesized by co-precipitation in a chemical process. These nanoparticles show much enhanced power factors as compared to that of pure PbTe nanoparticles, which may give impact ...
Generation of dual patterns of metal oxide nanomaterials based on seed-mediated selective growth
A facile route for the generation of the dual patterns of metal oxide nanomaterials, for example, ZnO and CuO, has been developed by printing the oxide seeds through a combination of microcontact printing (μCP) and ...
Fabrication of core−shell structure of M@C (M=Se, Au, Ag2Se) and transformation to yolk−shell structure by electron beam irradiation or vacuum annealing
Selenium @ carbon core−shell spheres have been synthesized via a simple one-step hydrothermal carbonization process using sucrose and sodium selenite as precursors. Metal selenide or noble metal, e.g. Ag2Se or Au, can be ...
A carbon monoxide gas sensor using oxygen plasma modified carbon nanotubes
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a highly toxic gas that can be commonly found in many places. However, it is not easily detected by human olfaction due to its colorless and odorless nature. Therefore, highly sensitive sensors need ...
Flexible carbon nanotube papers with improved thermoelectric properties
Although theoretical calculations indicate that the thermoelectric figure of merit, ZT, of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) could reach >2, the experimentally reported ZT values of CNTs are typically in the range of 10−3–10−2, which ...
