We have performed measurements of boundary hysteresis loops, reversal curves, and subloops in p+-type porous silicon, a porous material composed of straight non-interconnected pores. These data show that a strong interaction mechanism exists between the pores. The pores of porous silicon are non-independent, whereas they are not interconnected. This(More)
We report on a detailed experimental study of capillary condensation-evaporation processes of N(2) in ordered mesoporous SBA-15 silica. We have carried out measurements of boundary hysteresis loops, reversal curves, and subloops in order to test whether this material behaves as an assembly of independent cylindrical pores open at both ends. With these data,(More)
We report on an experimental study of adsorption isotherm of nitrogen onto porous silicon with noninterconnected pores open at one or at both ends in order to check for the first time the old (1938) but always current idea based on Cohan's description which suggests that the adsorption of gas should occur reversibly in the first case and irreversibly in the(More)
We study the adsorption process of nitrogen (at 77.4 and 51.3 K) and argon (at 60 K) in porous silicon duplex layers, Si/A/B and Si/B/A, where the pores of A are on average narrower than the pores of B. We compare the experimental isotherms to that calculated from elemental isotherms measured in layers A and B supported by or detached from the silicon(More)
The experimental results presented in this paper show the influence of the elastic deformation of porous solids on the adsorption process. With p(+)-type porous silicon formed on highly boron doped (100) Si single crystal, we can make identical porous layers, either supported by or detached from the substrate. The pores are perpendicular to the substrate.(More)
