The use of phenolic or melaminic bakelite as RPC electrodes is widespread. The electrode resistivity is an important parameter for the RPC performance. As recent studies pointed out, the bakelite resistivity changes with temperature and is in#uenced by humidity. In order to gain a quantitative understanding on the in#uence of temperature and humidity on RPC(More)
The aim of the present paper is to identify the main Raman vibrational features of carbon nanotubes and derivatives. In this goal, Raman active mode calculations have been performed on different single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs) as well as peapods. The comparison between the calculations performed on these(More)
We present a force constants model for the vibrational modes in C60 dimer and polymer phases. The results of this model are used to calculate the nonresonant Raman spectra of infinitely long isolated C60 dimer and polymer peapod in the framework of bond-polarization theory by using the spectral moment's method. The changes of the Raman spectrum in terms of(More)
Using the spectral moments method, we present calculations of Raman active modes of Single Walled Boron Nitride Nanotube (SW-BNNT). The Spectra are computed for chiral and achiral nanotubes in terms of their diameter and length. The behaviors of low frequency Raman active modes characteristic, in terms of the tube diameter revealed that these frequencies(More)
The Laboratories of the National Center of Energy, Sciences and Nuclear Techniques (CNESTEN) in Morocco, has put at the disposal of the Moroccan scientific community very efficient energy dispersive X-ray fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers. In this work, we present results on the calibration of two ED-XRF spectrometers, using different excition systems: 1)(More)
In the present work, the non-resonant Raman-active modes are calculated for several diameters, chiralities and sizes for homogeneous and inhomogeneous bundles of single-walled carbon nanotubes (BWCNTs), using the spectral moment's method (SMM). Additional intense Raman-active modes are present in the breathing-like modes (BLM) spectra of these systems in(More)
