Three-dimensional topological insulators are characterized by the presence of a bandgap in their bulk and gapless Dirac fermions at their surfaces. New physical phenomena originating from the presence of the Dirac fermions are predicted to occur, and to be experimentally accessible via transport measurements in suitably designed electronic devices. Here we(More)
The main goal of this paper is to analyze the exergy losses during the shock and rarefaction wave of hydrogen-air mixture. First, detonation parameters pressure, temperature, density, and species mass fraction are calculated for three cases where the hydrogen mass fraction in air is 1.5%, 2.5%, and 5%. Then, exergy efficiency is used as objective criteria(More)
