    The use of scanning electron microscope (SEM) images as references for threshold tuning of X-ray micro/nano computed tomography reconstruction is proposed. In this research, high-resolution SEM images were used to provide a good estimation of the fibre diameter in the surface of gas diffusion layers (GDL) (5-10 mum). The X-ray tomography reconstructed binary images containing 3D information, inclu... View full abstract»

    Nanodiamond (ND) particles (4-8-nm) have been deposited by an electrophoretic method on aluminium alloy A319 to obtain thick (20-60-m), strongly adherent coatings. The electrophoresis deposition process was carried out by dispersing ND powders in an electrolytic solution of nickel sulphate/nickel chloride solution to obtain Ni-ND composite coating and also in isopropanol to obtain Ni-free ND coati...

  • ZnO/Zn/sub 0.85/Mg/sub 0.15/O superlattice nanoneedles grown by pulsed laser deposition

    Superlattices of ZnO/Zn0.85Mg0.15O were grown on a sapphire (0001) substrate by the pulsed laser deposition method. Before the growth, ZnO buffer layers were grown at 650 C and an oxygen pressure of 60 Pa for 30 min. The results of the scanning electron microscope exhibit that the films with a buffer layer consist of well c-axis oriented nano-needles with a size range ... View full abstract»

  • Active glass nanoparticles by ultrafast laser pulses

    Publication Year: 2008, Page(s):121 - 124

    The authors have successfully demonstrated a method employing pulsed-laser ablation of active glass to produce nanoparticles exhibiting upconversion, pumped by near-infrared wavelengths and emitting visible light. A high repetition rate ultrashort pulsed laser was used to ablate glass under atmospheric conditions. Ejected particles collected were analysed by electron microscopy to determine partic...
