Despite many experimental and theoretical studies, the crystal structure of the epsilon phase of solid oxygen has not been determined. We performed powder x-ray diffraction experiments and the Rietveld analyses in this study to show that a new arrangement of the monoclinic space group C2/m could fit the diffraction patterns of the epsilon phase and obtained(More)
[1] Decomposition conditions of methane hydrates in sediments were measured during formation-decomposition cycles. As test sediments, we used silica sand, sandstone, and clays (kaoline and bentonite), which are typical natural materials known as hydrate bearing sediments, and the range of samples cover a range of water saturating abilities. To better(More)
The formation of CH4-CO2 mixed gas hydrates was observed by measuring the change of vapor-phase composition using gas chromatography and Raman spectroscopy. Preferential consumption of carbon dioxide molecules was found during hydrate formation, which agreed well with thermodynamic calculations. Both Raman spectroscopic analysis and the thermodynamic(More)
Increasing functional complexity and dimensional compactness of electronic devices have led to progressively higher power dissipation, mainly in the form of heat. Overheating of semiconductor-based electronics has been the primary reason for their failure. Such failures originate at the interface of the heat sink (commonly Cu and Al) and the substrate(More)
Structural determination of crystalline powders, especially those of complex materials, is not a trivial task. For non-stoichiometric guest-host materials, the difficulty lies in how to determine dynamical disorder and partial cage occupancies of the guest molecules without other supporting information or constraints. Here, we show how direct space methods(More)
