Yields of protons emitted in the D + D reaction in Pd and PdO thick targets were measured for bombarding energies between 2.5 and 10 keV. The obtained yields were compared with those predicted by using the parameterization of cross sections at higher energies. It was found that both of the yields for Pd and PdO are surprisingly larger than the prediction.(More)
Vibrational-rotational properties of CH(4) adsorbed on the nanopores of single-wall carbon nanohorns (SWCNHs) at 105-140 K were investigated using IR spectroscopy. The difference vibrational-rotational bands of the ν(3) and ν(4) modes below 130 K show suppression of the P and R branches, while the Q branches remain. The widths of the Q branches are much(More)
For the practical use of activated carbon (AC) as an adsorbent of CH(4) , tightly packed monoliths with high microporosity are supposed to be one of the best morphologies in terms of storage capacity per apparent volume of the adsorbent material. However, monolith-type ACs may cause diffusion obstacles in adsorption processes owing to their necked pore(More)
A hydrophobic tetrapodal molecule is composed of carbazole units at the periphery linked by a phenyl spacer on an adamantane core. Tetrapodal adamantane self-assembles into hollow spherical aggregates with a multilayer membrane in organic media. The spherical assembly size is dependent on the organic solvent used. Hollow spheres can entrap guest molecules(More)
To evaluate the fracture strength of TiN thin films deposited on the hard metal substrate WC-Co, and to investigate the influence of the deposition conditions (bias voltage V B) on the fracture strength of TiN thin films, the sphere indentation test was carried out to determine the ring crack initiation strength σ f,m in TiN thin films deposited on two(More)
The nanoporosities and catalytic activities of Pd nanoparticles dispersed on single wall carbon nanohorns (Pd-SWCNHs) and oxidized single wall carbon nanohorns (Pd-ox-SWCNHs) were examined. A transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observation indicated that Pd nanoparticles of 2-3 nm size were highly dispersed on both the SWCNHs. X-ray photoelectron spectra(More)
Nanosilicas can disperse single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) in aqueous solution efficiently; SWCNTs are stably dispersed in aqueous media for more than 6 months. The SWCNT dispersing solution with nanosilica can produce highly conductive transparent films which satisfy the requirements for application to touch panels. Even multiwall carbon nanotube can be(More)
