The electrochemical sensing properties of graphene-based and carbon nanotube (CNT)-based electrodes towards ascorbic acid, dopamine, uric acid, and glucose are systematically compared. Nano-sized Pd catalyst particles are uniformly dispersed on both carbon supports using a supercritical fluid deposition technique to increase the sensing performance. The(More)
Compared to C60, carbon nanotubes, and graphite, graphene more effectively lowers the dehydrogenation temperature and improves the dehydrogenation kinetics of LiAlH4. With 15 wt% graphene incorporation, the initial hydrogen release temperature is ~80 °C (60 °C lower than that of pristine LiAlH4).
Fabrication and efficiency enhancement of tubal field emission lamps (FELs) using multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) as the cathode field emitters were studied. The cathode filaments were prepared by eletrolessly plating a nickel (Ni) film on the cathode made of a 304 stainless steel wire dip-coated with MWNTs. The 304 wire was dip-coated with MWNTs and(More)
Graphene-supported Pt nanoparticles were prepared by a self-regulated reduction method without using any extra reductive agent. Unassisted reduction of Pt ions by the oxygen-containing functional groups on graphene was demonstrated. X-ray diffraction (XRD) showed a (200) peak of face-centered cubic Pt crystals and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS)(More)
Bulb-shaped field emission lamps (FELs) using carbon nano-coil (CNC) cathodes were fabricated and their performances were characterized. A straight steel wire grown with CNCs was placed on the symmetry axis in the bulb as the cathode. The anode was defined by a Ni film deposited on the bottom hemisphere of a 60-mm-diameter glass bulb. And a phosphor layer(More)

A self-focusing field emission (FE) X-ray tube with a large-area cathode design was simulated and fabricated. The designed X-ray tube had a cylindrically symmetric geometry; the diameter of the cathode and the anode was 15 mm, and the cathode-anode distance was 20 mm. Owing to the unique cup-shaped design of the cathode, the electron beam emitted from the(More)
