Precursor non-stoichiometry to enable improved CH3NH3PbBr3 nanocrystal LED performance

Chandran, Bevita K.; Veldhuis, Sjoerd A.; Chin, Xin Yu; Bruno, Annalisa; Yantara, Natalia; Chen, Xiaodong; Mhaisalkar, Subodh

High photoluminescence quantum yields and narrow emission wavelengths, combined with low temperature solution processing, make CH3NH3PbBr3 nanocrystals (NCs) favorable candidates for light-emitting applications. Herein, we describe the synthesis of CH3NH3PbBr3 NC inks by a convenient room-temperature ligand assisted reprecipitation protocol. We further investigate the effect of modulation of the…

Effects of calcination and activation conditions on ordered mesoporous carbon supported iron catalysts for production of lower olefins from synthesis gas

Oschatz, M.; Deelen, T. W. van; Weber, J. L.; Lamme, W. S.; Wang, G.; Goderis, B.; Verkinderen, O.; Dugulan, A. I.; Jong, K. P. de

Lower C2–C4 olefins are important commodity chemicals usually produced by steam cracking of naphtha or fluid catalytic cracking of vacuum gas oil. The Fischer–Tropsch synthesis of lower olefins (FTO) with iron-based catalysts uses synthesis gas as an alternative feedstock. Nanostructured carbon materials are widely applied as supports for the iron…

Contribution to Accurate Spherical Gold Nanoparticle Size Determination by Single-Particle Inductively Coupled Mass Spectrometry: A Comparison with Small-Angle X-ray Scattering

Geertsen, Valérie; Barruet, Elodie; Gobeaux, Frédéric; Lacour, Jean-Luc; Taché, Olivier

Small-angle X-ray scattering spectroscopy (SAXS) is the method of choice for nanoparticle diameter and concentration determination. On the one hand, it is metrologically traceable for spherical nanoparticle mean diameter determination and does not require any sample preparation or calibration. On the other hand, single-particle inductively coupled mass spectrometry (SPICPMS) is…

Strengthening mechanisms in Fe-Al based ferritic low-density steels

Pramanik, Sudipta; Koppoju, Suresh; Anupama, A. V.; Sahoo, Balaram; Suwas, Satyam

Low-density steels with different aluminium contents have been investigated with an aim to examine the occurrence of different strengthening mechanisms leading to its higher strength. A composition corresponding to 6.8wt% aluminium has been studied to understand the underlying strengthening mechanisms. Different factors contributing to the strengthening mechanisms have been separately…

Monodisperse hollow silica spheres: An in-depth scattering analysis

Ruckdeschel, Pia; Dulle, Martin; Honold, Tobias; Förster, Stephan; Karg, Matthias; Retsch, Markus

Herein, we fabricate hollow silica nanoparticles with exceptionally narrow size distributions that inherently possess two distinct length scales—tens of nanometers with regards to the shell thickness, and hundreds of nanometers in regards to the total diameter. We characterize these structures using dynamic and static light scattering (DLS and SLS), small…

Conduction Band Fine Structure in Colloidal HgTe Quantum Dots

Hudson, Margaret H.; Chen, Menglu; Kamysbayev, Vladislav; Janke, Eric M.; Lan, Xinzheng; Allan, Guy; Delerue, Christophe; Lee, Byeongdu; Guyot-Sionnest, Philippe; Talapin, Dmitri V.

HgTe colloidal quantum dots (QDs) are of interest because quantum confinement of semimetallic bulk HgTe allows one to synthetically control the bandgap throughout the infrared. Here, we synthesize highly monodisperse HgTe QDs and tune their doping both chemically and electrochemically. The monodispersity of the QDs was evaluated using small-angle X-ray…
