Eu3+ doped tellurite glass ceramics containing SrF2 nanocrystals: Preparation, structure and luminescence properties
Eu3+ doped tellurite glass ceramics containing SrF2 nanocrystals were prepared using melt quenching technique and subsequent heat treatment of glass in 370 °C for different time periods. Thermal properties of glass matrix have been determined based on DSC measurements. XRD and XPS results confirmed formation of SrF2 nanocrystals in glass matrices after annealing at 370 °C. FTIR studies revealed absorption bands in the range of...
UV-Vis-Induced Degradation of Phenol over Magnetic Photocatalysts Modified with Pt, Pd, Cu and Au Nanoparticles
The combination of TiO2 photocatalyst and magnetic oxide nanoparticles enhances the separation and recoverable properties of nanosized TiO2 photocatalyst. Metal-modified (Me = Pd, Au, Pt, Cu) TiO2/SiO2@Fe3O4 nanocomposites were prepared by an ultrasonic-assisted sol-gel method. All prepared samples were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) analysis, Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy...
Structure and thermoelectric properties of Te/Ag/Ge/Sb (TAGS) materials obtained by reduction of melted oxide substrates
The Ge0.77Ag0.1Sb0.13Te1alloy was fabricated by a novel two step route. For that purpose firstly the oxide reagents were melted at high temperature and quenched into pellets. After that pellets were milled to the powder and then reduced in hydrogen at various temperatures and for various periods of time. Energy dispersive X-ray analysis indicated the possibility of successful fabrication of stoichiometric thermoelectric materials...
