The solid lithium-ion electrolyte "Li(7)La(3)Zr(2)O(12)" (LLZO) with a garnet-type structure has been prepared in the cubic and tetragonal modification following conventional ceramic syntheses routes. Without aluminium doping tetragonal LLZO was obtained, which shows a two orders of magnitude lower room temperature conductivity than the cubic modification.(More)
Ferroelectric materials have emerged in recent years as an alternative to magnetic and dielectric materials for nonvolatile data-storage applications. Lithography is widely used to reduce the size of data-storage elements in ultrahigh-density memory devices. However, ferroelectric materials tend to be oxides with complex structures that are easily damaged(More)
An ultra lightweight carbon microtube material called Aerographite is synthesized by a novel single-step chemical vapor deposition synthesis based on ZnO networks, which is presently the lightest known material with a density smaller than μg/cm(3). Despite its low density, the hierarchical design leads to remarkable mechanical, electrical, and optical(More)
Insights into the local atomic arrangements of layered Ge-Sb-Te compounds are of particular importance from a fundamental point of view and for data storage applications. In this view, a detailed knowledge of the atomic structure in such alloys is central to understanding the functional properties both in the more commonly utilized amorphous-crystalline(More)
Ion-beam assisted molecular-beam epitaxy was used for direct growth of epitaxial GaN thin films on super-polished 6H-SiC(0001) substrates. The GaN films with different film thicknesses were studied using reflection high energy electron diffraction, X-ray diffraction, cathodoluminescence and primarily aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron(More)
2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag Gmb Microactuators and sensors based on magnetic shape-memory (MSM) alloys will benefit from the large strain close to 10% obtained in these materials. These strains exceed the values obtainable by magnetostriction or piezoelectricity by more than one order of magnitude. Thus, they can be used directly for most applications, avoiding(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the work was to investigate mechanistic details of the preparation of graphene-like materials (GLM) via reduction of graphene oxide (GO) in aqueous dispersions by electron beam (EB) generated reducing free radicals. MATERIALS AND METHODS A 10 MeV linear accelerator was employed to irradiate aqueous GO dispersions at ambient(More)
Magnetically anisotropic as well as magnetic core-shell nanoparticles (CS-NPs) with controllable properties are highly desirable in a broad range of applications. With this background, a setup for the synthesis of heterostructured magnetic core-shell nanoparticles, which relies on (optionally pulsed) DC plasma gas condensation has been developed. We(More)
Carbon containing nano-sized molybdenum sulfide composites (MoS(x)C(y)) obtained by thermal decomposition reactions of (R(4)N)(2)MoS(4) (R = -H (C(0)), -CH(3) (C(1)), -C(3)H(7) (C(3)), and -C(6)H(13) (C(6))) show promising performance in visible-light driven photocatalytic hydrogen generation.
