Nitrogen fixation is essential for the synthesis of many important chemicals (e.g., fertilizers, explosives) and basic building blocks for all forms of life (e.g., nucleotides for DNA and RNA, amino acids for proteins). However, direct nitrogen fixation is challenging as nitrogen (N₂) does not easily react with other chemicals. By dry ball-milling graphite(More)

However, in large-volume CdZnTe crystals,(More)
The charge sharing effect in pixelated CdZnTe (CZT) detectors with a common anode steering grid has been studied. The impact on energy resolution of weighting potential cross-talk and ballistic deficit due to cathode signal shaping has been investigated. A detailed system modeling package considering charge induction, electronic noise, pulse shaping, and(More)
In a pixelated detector, an electron cloud can be collected by and shared between several adjacent pixels. By including these charge-sharing events, the Compton-imaging efficiency can be improved for 3D position sensitive room-temperature CdZnTe gamma-ray detectors. Simulated photopeak events that trigger three separate pixels with two pixels being adjacent(More)
