The high thermoelectric figure of merit ͑zT͒ of Ba 8 Ga 16 Ge 30 makes it one of the best n-type materials for thermoelectric power generation. Here, we describe the synthesis and characterization of a Czochralski pulled single crystal of Ba 8 Ga 16 Ge 30 and polycrystalline disks. Measurements of the electrical conductivity, Hall effect, specific heat,(More)
Complementary experimental techniques and ab initio calculations were used to determine the origin and nature of negative thermal expansion (NTE) in the archetype metal-organic framework MOF-5 (Zn(4)O(1,4-benzenedicarboxylate)(3)). The organic linker was probed by inelastic neutron scattering under vacuum and at a gas pressure of 175 bar to distinguish(More)
The influence of synthesis and compaction parameters is investigated with regards to formation of high performance SrFe12O19 bulk magnets. The produced magnets consist of highly aligned, single-magnetic domain nanoplatelets of SrFe12O19. The relationship between the magnetic performance of the samples and their structural features is established through(More)
Magnetic property is one of the important properties of nanomaterials. Direct investigation of the magnetic property on the nanoscale is however challenging. Herein we present a quantitative measurement of the magnetic properties including the magnitude and the orientation of the magnetic moment of strontium hexaferrite (SrFe12O19) nanostructures using(More)
The room-temperature magnetic properties of ball-milled strontium hexaferrite particles consolidated by spark-plasma sintering are strongly influenced by the milling time. Scanning electron microscopy revealed the ball-milled SrFe12O19 particles to have sizes varying over several hundred nanometers. X-Ray powder-diffraction studies performed on the(More)
The evolution of size and size distribution during hydrothermal synthesis of nanocrystalline CoFe2O4 has been studied by in situ synchrotron powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD). Varying synthesis temperature or [OH(-)] concentration in the precursor proves to have no significant effect on the final volume-weighted nanocrystallite sizes (∼12 nm) of CoFe2O4.(More)
Understanding the mechanism of nanoparticle formation during synthesis is a key prerequisite for the rational design and engineering of desirable materials properties, yet remains elusive due to the difficulty of studying structures at the nanoscale under real conditions. Here, the first comprehensive structural description of the formation of a(More)
