Carbon-based nanomaterials provide an attractive perspective to replace precious Pt-based electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) to enhance the practical applications of fuel cells. Herein, we demonstrate a one-pot direct transformation from graphitic-phase C3N4 (g-C3N4) to nitrogen-doped graphene. g-C3N4, containing only C and N elements,(More)
The local metallicities of Hf(0.97)Gd(0.03)O(2), Ga(0.97)Gd(0.03)N, Eu(0.97)Gd(0.04)O and EuO films were studied through a comparison of the findings from constant initial state spectroscopy using synchrotron light. Resonant enhancements, corresponding to the 4d → 4f transitions of Eu and Gd, were observed in some of the valence band photoemission features.(More)
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a promising nonprecious catalyst for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) that has been extensively studied due to its excellent performance, but the lack of understanding of the factors that impact its catalytic activity hinders further design and enhancement of MoS2-based electrocatalysts. Here, by using novel porous(More)
In this paper, we investigated the dielectric properties of (In + Nb) co-doped rutile TiO2 single crystal and polycrystalline ceramics. Both of them showed colossal, up to 10(4), dielectric permittivity at room temperature. The single crystal sample showed one dielectric relaxation process with a large dielectric loss. The voltage-dependence of dielectric(More)
The static and dynamic features of magnetization have been investigated in terms of dc magnetization, ac susceptibility, and memory effects on single-layered perovskite La(0.7)Sr(1.3)CoO(4). The results indicate that short-range ferromagnetic clusters coexist with the glassy magnetic state, i.e., a cluster-glass phase between T(f) and T(G) and a(More)
A series of compact La/O-vacant La(1-x)CoO(3-y) compounds were prepared by a cold high-pressure procedure, and their thermoelectric (TE) properties were investigated. Compared with the ion-substituted hole-type LaCoO(3) systems (e.g., La(1-x)Sr(x)CoO(3)), the thermal conduction of La(1-x)CoO(3-y) is noticeably reduced by the La/O vacancies, whereas the(More)
Effect of gadolinium doping on the electronic band structure of europium oxide" (2012). Peter Dowben Publications. Paper 248. High quality films of EuO and Eu 0.96 Gd 0.04 O were grown on p-type Si(100) via pulsed laser deposition. X-ray-diffraction results show that the addition of Gd changes the growth texture from [001] to [111]. Angular-resolved(More)
In this paper, we report on the hydrogen photochromism in Nb2O5 powders with different structures. Four different powder phases were prepared by calcining Nb2O5·nH2O powders at various temperatures, and their morphology, structure, and electronic band structure were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, structural analyses, thermogravimetric(More)
