  1. 1. Electrochemical Deposition and Characterization of Thermoelectric Thin Films of Bismuth Telluride and Its Derivatives

    Author : Yi Ma; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; efficiency; deposition mechanism; thermoelectric properties; Thermoelectric; thin films; bismuth telluride and its derivatives; nano-engineering; electrochemical deposition;

    Abstract : Thermoelectric materials have attracted enormous academic and industrial interest recently due to the fact that they can be used in solid state devices for power generation and cooling applications. It is expected that such thermoelectric applications will eventually contribute to meet the energy challenge in the future if the performance of the current devices can be further promoted through an increase in thermoelectric efficiency of the materials.

  2. 2. Modeling colloidal nanoparticles: From growth to deposition

    Author : Joakim Löfgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : gold; DLVO; thermodynamics; van der Waals; density functional theory; modeling; deposition; dispersive interactions; anisotropic; colloidal nanoparticles; nanorods;

    Abstract : In recent decades metal nanoparticles (NPs) have been the subject of intense research. The interest stems from the NPs physicochemical properties that can be conveniently tuned through, e.g., their size, shape or composition. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring Dye-Sensitized Mesoporous NiO Photocathodes : from Mechanism to Applications

    Author : Lei Tian; Haining Tian; Leif Hammarström; Fabrice Odobel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NiO; p-type; dye-sensitized solar cells; solid state; charge separation; charge recombination; charge diffusion; transport time; surface states; electron conductor; dye regeneration; Kemi med inriktning mot kemisk fysik; Chemistry with specialization in Chemical Physics;

    Abstract : Increasing attention has been paid on solar energy conversion since the abundant solar energy possesses the potential to solve the problems on energy crisis and climate change. Dye-sensitized mesoporous NiO film was developed as one of the attractive photocathodes to fabricate p-type dye-sensitized solar cells (p-DSCs) and dye-sensitized photoelectrosynthetic cells (p-DSPECs) for electricity and chemical fuels generation, respectively.

  4. 4. A Study on Particle Motion and Deposition Rate : Application in Steel Flows

    Author : Peiyuan Ni; Pär Jönsson; Lage Jonsson; Mikael Ersson; Stein Tore Johansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; steel flow; ladle teeming; continuous casting; non-metallic inclusion behavior; particle deposition; nozzle clogging; numerical simulation.;

    Abstract : Non-metallic inclusions in molten steel have received worldwide attention due to their serious influence on both the steel product quality and the steel production process. These inclusions may come from the de-oxidation process, the re-oxidation by air and/or slag due to an entrainment during steel transfer, and so on. READ MORE

  5. 5. The influence of Al alloy microstructure on conversion coating formation

    Author : Salil Sainis; Caterina Zanella; Ehsan Ghassemali; Jönköping University; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aluminium alloys; cast Al-Si alloys; conversion coating treatment; cerium; localized deposition; surface pre-treatments; microstructure; SEM; FIB-SEM; AFM-SKPFM; aluminiumlegeringar; gjutna Al-Si legeringar; omvandlingsbeläggningar; cerium; lokaliserad deposition; ytförbehandlingar; microstruktur SEM; FIB-SEM; AFM-SKPFM;

    Abstract : The formation of conversion coatings based on Ce, trivalent Cr and Ti/Zr is triggered by the local pH increase at cathodic IM sites of the aluminium alloy microstructure. The pH gradient is created over the cathodic intermetallic (IM) sites of the microstructure and its intensity is influenced by their activity which depends on their chemical composition, their size, and spatial distribution.
