The oxygen ion conduction behavior of an orthorhombic perovskite oxide Ba-doped LaInO3 was evaluated by molecular dynamics simulation. Comparative calculations for cubic and the orthorhombic models show that the orthorhombic model was in better agreement with the experimental results with respect to both ionic conductivity and activation energy. The results(More)
A novel and simple approach was used to disperse Cu nanoparticles uniformly in the Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 matrix, and the thermoelectric properties were evaluated for the Cu-dispersed Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3. Polycrystalline Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 powder prepared by encapsulated melting and grinding was dry-mixed with Cu(OAc)2 powder. After Cu(OAc)2 decomposition, the Cu-dispersed(More)
The use of a simple thermal treatment for growing ultra-long SiO(x) nanowires on silicon carbide (SiC) thin films is reported for the first time. SiC thin films with a thickness of 100 nm were prepared by sputtering at room temperature followed by annealing in an Ar/H2 gas atmosphere. The growth of SiO(x) nanowires started when the annealing temperature was(More)
We introduce a one-step growth method for producing multilayer-graphene hollow nanospheres via a high-temperature chemical vapor deposition process using tetramethylsilane as an organic precursor. When the SiC nuclei were grown under an excess carbon atmosphere, they were surrounded via desorption of the hydrocarbon gas species, and graphene layers formed(More)
Ag-dispersed Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 was prepared successfully by silver acetate (AgOAc) decomposition and hot pressing. The Ag nanoparticles were well-dispersed in the Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 matrix, and acted as phonon scattering centers effectively. The electrical conductivity increased systematically with increasing amount of Ag nanoparticle dispersion, whereas it(More)
Graphene/inorganic hybrid structures have attracted increasing attention in research aimed at producing advanced optoelectronic devices and sensors. Herein, we report on aerosol synthesis of new graphene-embedded zinc oxide (ZnO) films with higher optical transparency (>80% at visible wavelengths), improved electrical conductivity (>2 orders of magnitude, ∼(More)
Thermoelectrics, which transports heat for refrigeration or converts heat into electricity directly, is a key technology for renewable energy harvesting and solid-state refrigeration. Despite its importance, the widespread use of thermoelectric devices is constrained because of the low efficiency of thermoelectric bulk alloys. However, boundary engineering(More)
