Manganese oxides (MnO x), being active, inexpensive and low-toxicity materials, are considered promising water oxidation catalysts (WOCs). This work reports the preparation and the physico-chemical and electrochemical characterization of spin-coated (SC) films of commercial Mn 2 O 3 , Mn 3 O 4 and MnO 2 powders. Spin coating consists of few preparation(More)
Tellurite glasses are low phonon energy optical materials suitable for the development of optical devices in the near to mid-IR wavelength region. An additional interesting property is their high nonlinearity, which offers the possibility to fabricate specialty core-clad optical fibres for the development of compact supercontinuum sources characterized by(More)
Calcium-phosphate glasses (CPGs) are unique materials for hard and soft tissue engineering, as they can be fully resorbed in physiological conditions and can interact in various ways with the human body. Moreover, they have interesting properties for applications in optics and photonics. We will report the recent progress in the development of a new(More)
Here we report on a novel polymer electrolyte membrane for quasi-solid dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) with excellent efficiency and extended durability. The electrolyte is prepared by an elegant, rapid and cheap UV-induced polymerization method and the chemometric approach is used for the first time, to the best of our knowledge, for the optimization(More)
We report on the inscription of Bragg gratings in a bioresorbable phosphate optical fiber using 193 nm excimer laser radiation and the phase mask technique. Bragg gratings with a typical 6 dB transmission strength were created over a length of 5 mm employing moderate inscription energy densities. The dissolution of the fiber, when immersed in phosphate(More)
