Graphene quantum dots are known to exhibit tunable photoluminescence (PL) through manipulation of edge functionality under various synthesis conditions. Here, we report observation of excitation dependent anomalous m-n type fingerprint PL transition in synthesized amino functionalized graphene quantum dots (5-7 nm). The effect of band-to-band π*-π and(More)
The present work deals with the semi-classical tunnelling approach and the Hamilton–Jacobi method to study Hawking radiation from the dynamical horizon of both the homogeneous Friedmann–Robertson–Walker (FRW) model and the inhomogeneous Lemaitre–Tolman–Bondi (LTB) model of the Universe. In the tunnelling prescription, radial null geodesics are used to(More)
Nanocrystalline ceria powders have been synthesized by combustion technique using citric acid as a fuel and nitrate as an oxidizer. The auto-ignition of the gels containing cerium nitrate and citric acid resulted in ceria powders. A theory based on adiabatic flame temperature for different citric acid-to-cerium nitrate molar ratios has been proposed to(More)
Cupric oxide mesospheres composed of its nanoparticles have been synthesized by a simple template free chemical route at different temperatures. Thermal aging followed by higher temperature (350 degrees C, 6 hours) annealing on these architects transformed them into hollow mesospheres consisting of sharp needle like structures with high aspect ratio (-(More)
Field-emission displays (FEDs) constitute one of the major foci of the cutting edge materials research because of the increasingly escalating demand for high-resolution display panels. However, poor efficiencies of the concurrent low voltage cathodoluminescence (CL) phosphors have created a serious bottleneck in the commercialization of such devices. Herein(More)
The mortality rate of herpetofauna due to road accidents in one of the busiest tarmacked metalled roads of Durgapur, an industrial town of West Bengal, India was studied. Road survey for 27 days covering a total distance of 94.5 km was conducted. Within this span of time and the total stretch of road, 354 amphibians belonging to 6 species and 133 reptiles(More)
In this paper we report a facile route for the synthesis of controlled CuO nanoarchitectures directly grown on a copper substrate by a one-step simple chemical route with varying concentration of non-ionic surfactant PEG-6K. The phase purity and degree of crystallinity of the as-developed nanostructures were systemically investigated by X-ray diffraction,(More)
In the current report, chemically synthesized copper phthalocyanine (CuPc) nanotubes are shown to exhibit unprecedentedly well cold cathode emission characteristics with turn-on field (3.2 V μ m(-1)) and stable emission during long intervals (200 min). Simulation of electric field distribution via finite element method around an isolated nanotube emitter in(More)
Highly-luminescent nanophosphors have a decisive role in solid-state lighting (SSL) as well as in field emission display (FED) applications due to their potential use in fabrication of nanophosphor based FED and solid state display devices. Herein, the red emitting highly-luminescent Eu(3+)-Li(+) co-doped magnesium aluminate (MgAl2O4) nanophosphors were(More)
