Doped and undoped nanostructured titanium dioxide was synthesized via a sol–gel method under varying conditions to determine the effects of neodymium ion doping on the titania lattice. Specifically, the effects of doping on the anatase to rutile phase transformation were studied. Samples were analyzed by a variety of techniques, including X-ray diffraction,(More)
Summary form only given. Surface treatment of polymers using plasma has teen widely implemented to enhance the adhesion and wettability of the material through the inclusion of polar functional groups. In the case of high-strength organic fibers for composite applications, it is imperative to apply such a technique to overcome interfacial discontinuities(More)
