  • Nanoporous nanocrystalline monoclinic zirconia for luminescent oxygen sensors 

    Fidelus, Janusz; Zhou, Wuzong; Tenderenda, Tadeusz; Nasilowski, Tomasz (SPIE, 2015-09-28) - Conference item
    In this work we present a nanocrystalline monoclinic ZrO2 with large free volumen open towards the nanocrystals surface dedicated for optical oxygen sensors. Nanoporous zirconia nanopowder was fabricated in hydrothermal ...
  • NdBaScO4: aristotype of a new family of geometric ferroelectrics? 

    Cochrane, Amber; Telfer, Michael; Dixon, Charlotte Amy Louise; Halasyamani, P. Shiv; Zhang, Weiguo; Bousquet, Eric; Lightfoot, Philip (2016-09-21) - Journal article
    NdBaScO4 represents the aristotype structure of a new series of <110>-cut layered perovskites; it is suggested that compositional fine-tuning is likely to produce a family of new geometric ferroelectrics, driven primarily ...
  • Synthesis and electrochemical study of CoNi2S4 as a novel cathode material in a primary Li thermal battery 

    Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Payne, Julia L.; Crouch, Christina; Gover, Richard; Connor, Paul A.; Irvine, John T. S. (2017-07-25) - Journal article
    In this work CoNi2S4 was investigated as a candidate cathode material for Li thermal batteries. The CoNi2S4 was synthesized by a solid state reaction at 550◦C in a sealed quartz tube. Neutron powder diffraction was utilized ...
  • In-situ thermal battery discharge using NiS2 as a cathode material 

    Payne, Julia L.; Percival, Julia D.; Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Crouch, Christina J.; Carins, George M.; Smith, Ronald I.; Comrie, Robert; Gover, Robert K. B.; Irvine, John T. S. (2017-08) - Journal article
    NiS2 is a cathode material found in primary batteries which operate at high temperature. Herein we report the in situ battery discharge study of a thermal battery cell which uses NiS2 as a cathode, using simultaneous ...
  • Electrodeposited NiCu bimetal on carbon paper as stable non-noble anode for efficient electrooxidation of ammonia 

    Xu, Wei; Du, Dongwei; Lan, Rong; Humphreys, John; Miller, David N.; Walker, Marc; Wu, Zucheng; Irvine, John T. S.; Tao, Shanwen (2016-11-02) - Journal article
    Electrochemical remediation of ammonia-containing wastewater at low cell voltage is an energy-effective technology which can simultaneously recover energy via hydrogen evolution reaction. One of the main challenges is to ...
