Magnetic carbon materials that have nanoscale zero-valent iron (nZVI) supported on fish scale based hierarchical lamellar porous carbon (FHLC) is reported in this study. The nZVI on FHLC was in the form of body-centered-cubic iron (Fe) crystal. Although it was demonstrated that the specific surface area (SBET), total pore volume (Vt) and micropore volume(More)
CuInS2 (CIS) quantum dots (QDs) have tunable photoluminescence (PL) behaviors in the visible and near infrared spectral range with markedly lower toxicity than the cadmium-based counterparts, making them very promising applications in light emitting and solar harvesting. However, there still remain material- and fabrication- related obstacles in realizing(More)
The photocatalytic activity for degrading gas-phase acetaldehyde and liquid-phase phenol by graphitic carbon nitride could be greatly improved after modification with phosphoric acid, which is attributed to the clear increase in adsorbed O2 which prolongs the lifetime and enhances the separation of photogenerated charge carriers. This is based on O2(More)
Colloidal ZnO nanoparticle (NP) films are recognized as efficient electron transport layers (ETLs) for quantum dot light-emitting diodes (QD-LEDs) with good stability and high efficiency. However, because of the inherently high work function of such films, spontaneous charge transfer occurs at the QD/ZnO interface in such a QD-LED, thus leading to reduced(More)
The realization of a practical lithium sulfur battery system, despite its high theoretical specific capacity, is severely limited by fast capacity decay, which is mainly attributed to polysulfide dissolution and shuttle effect. To address this issue, we designed a thin cathode inactive material interlayer modified separator to block polysulfides. There are(More)
Fabrication of well-aligned one-dimensional (1D) nanostrucutres is critically important and highly desired since it is the key step to realize the patterned arrays to be used as the display units. In the present work, we report the large-scale and well-aligned growth of n-type SiC nanowire arrays on the 6H-SiC wafer substrates via pyrolysis of polymeric(More)
Current emission stability is one of the key issues for field emitters for them to be practically applied as electron sources. In the present work, large-scale and well-aligned B-doped SiC nanoneedle arrays have been grown on 6H-SiC wafer substrates via pyrolysis of polymeric precursors. The measured field emission (FE) characteristics suggest that the(More)
Based on hydrogen-bonding layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly in aqueous solution, poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVPON) and a spherical polymer brush with a poly(methylsilsesquioxane) (PSQ) core and poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) hair chains were used to fabricate composite multilayer thin films. Hydrogen bonding as the driving force was confirmed by FT-IR spectrometry. A(More)
Cracks appeared in GaN epitaxial layers which were grown by a novel method combining metal organic vapor-phase epitaxy (MOCVD) and hydride vapor-phase epitaxy (HVPE) in one chamber. The origin of cracks in a 22-μm thick GaN film was fully investigated by high-resolution X-ray diffraction (XRD), micro-Raman spectra, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).(More)
