Carbon nanotube (CNT)-encapsulated metal sulfides/oxides are promising candidates for application as anode materials in lithium ion battery (LIB), while their electrochemical behavior and mechanism still remain unclear. A comprehensive understanding of the lithiation mechanism at nanoscale of this type of composites will benefit the design and development(More)
The comprehension of fundamental electrochemical behavior and sodiation mechanism is critical for the design of high-performance electrode materials for sodium-ion (Na-ion) batteries. In this paper, the electrochemical sodiation process and microstructure evolution of individual Co9S8-filled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been directly visualized and studied(More)
A novel multiple step growth (MSG) process has been developed to synthesize rutile nanorods (NRs) on fluorine-doped tin oxide (FTO) glass with the assistance of a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) aiming to increase the internal surface area of the 1D materials for dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC) applications. The experimental result reveals that the SAM(More)
Graphene, with its unique 2D nanostructure and excellent electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties, is considered an alternative to carbon nanotubes in nanocomposites. In this study, we present a one step approach for the deposition of iron oxide (Fe2O3) nanoparticles onto graphene sheets through solution mixture. The morphology, crystallinity, and(More)
Vertically aligned carbon nanotube (CNT) array was synthesized directly on stainless steel (SS) substrates with or without chemical etching or catalyst deposition via plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition method. The effect of chemical etching on the SS substrates resulted in CNTs with uniform diameter and length. Electron field emission properties of(More)
