X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy of iron–oxygen systems
X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy has been used to study a series of iron oxides. It has been shown that iron metal has a different ionisation energy from a number of iron(III) oxides. SmallExpand
X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy of chromium–oxygen systems
X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy has been used to study a series of chromium–oxygen compounds. It has been shown that the ionisation energy of the chromium 2p electrons is dependent primarily on theExpand
Conducting polymer gas sensors
Recent results with solid-state semiconductor gas sensors based on organic sensor elements are reviewed. Devices based on metal phthalocyanines show useful responses to NO2. Lead phthalocyanineExpand
The fabrication and performance of all solid state polymer-based rechargeable lithium cells
Abstract All-solid-state lithium cells utilizing a polymeric electrolyte, (PEO) 9 LiF 3 CSO 3 , and a composite cathode based on V 6 O 13 have been continuously cycled at 120°–140°C. Modifications toExpand
X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopic Study of Cobalt(II) and Nickel(II) Sorbed on Hectorite and Montmorillonite
The safe disposal of 60Co, 63Ni, and 59Ni has required considerable information on the interactions of Co2+ and Ni2+ with clay minerals in the geosphere. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) hasExpand
A.C. impedance studies of the lithium/polymer electrolyte interface in solid-state lithium cells
Abstract Cells containing either LiClO4/poly(ethylene oxide) or LiCF3SO3/poly(ethylene oxide) complexes as the electrolyte with lithium metal and/or V6O13-based composite electrodes have beenExpand
Ionic conductivity of pure and doped Li3N
Abstract The ionic conductivity of Li 3 N crystals doped with various metal ions (magnesium, copper and aluminum) or hydrogen has been investigated. The metal ions have a negative effect on theExpand
A study of the electrical properties of single-crystal and polycrystalline β-alumina using complex plane analysis
The single-crystal material has a resistivity at 300 degrees C of 4.7 Omega cm and an activation energy of 0.13 eV. In the polycrystalline case it has been possible to separate out the bulk and grainExpand
Diffusion profiles of zinc in indium phosphide
A series of experiments is described in which radio-tracer Zn was diffused into n-type InP over a wide range of experimental conditions. Diffusions were carried out in the temperature range 650-900Expand
