Structural and transport properties of ceramic LaMnO(3+δ) are investigated for δ = 0-0.154. According to x-ray diffraction measurements at room temperature the crystal structure of this compound varies from orthorhombic (Pbnm) for δ = 0 to rhombohedrally distorted cubic (Pm3m) for δ = 0.065-0.112 and to rhombohedral ([Formula: see text]) crystal symmetry(More)
The 5-10 nm Ce(1-x)Eu(x)O(2-delta) (0 < or = x < or = 0.30) nanoparticles with fluorite structure were synthesized by thermal decomposition of Eu- and Ce-2,4-pentanedione complexes mixtures. X-ray line broadening analysis of mixed samples Ce(1-x)Eu(x)O(2-delta) (0.05 < or = x < or = 0.30) showed that the crystallite size was lower and root mean square(More)
Two sherds representative of the Portuguese faience production of the first and second halves of the 17th century were studied carefully with the use of non-invasive spectroscopies, namely: Ground State Diffuse Reflectance Absorption (GSDR), micro-Raman, Fourier-Transform Infrared (FT-IR), Laser Induced Luminescence (LIL) and Proton Induced X-ray (PIXE).(More)
Silicon carbide fibers of different generation/processing routes (NLM-Nicalon and Tyranno SA3) were thermally treated to trigger the growth of nanocrystals, which were analyzed using Raman spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The nanocrystals were also aged in molten sodium nitrate to investigate their reactivity. The spatial correlation(More)
Spherical shaped nanoparticles of series Y(2 - x)Eu(x)O(3) (x = 0.06, 0.10, 0.20, and 2) and Gd(2 - x)Eu(x)O(3) (x = 0.06, 0.10) were prepared by thermolysis of 2,4-pentanedione complexes of Y, Gd, and Eu. The bixbyite phase of Gd(2 - x)Eu(x)O(3) samples was formed at 500 degrees C, whereas the thermal decomposition of Y and Eu complexes' mixtures occurred(More)
The use of cadmium chalchogenide nanoprecipitates to obtain brightly coloured glasses enormously expanded by the beginning of the twentieth century, when the production of cadmium-based pigments was already well established. Six historical stained glass pieces produced between the late 1920s and modern days have been investigated in order to delineate the(More)
