We studied the structural and compositional transformations of colloidal covellite (CuS) nanocrystals (and of djurleite (Cu 1.94 S) nanocrystals as a control) when exposed to divalent cations, as Cd 2+ and Hg 2+ , at room temperature in organic solvents. All the experiments were run in the absence of phosphines, which are a necessary ingredient for cation(More)
Self-supported patterns of oriented alignment of beta-FeOOH nanowires are fabricated through a simple solution reaction from the complex [Fe(phen)(3)](2+) at 60 degrees C. The alignment of nanowires with a diameter of 40 nm and length of 6 mum is relatively uniform. HRTEM studies show that the growing direction of beta-FeOOH nanowires is perpendicular to(More)
Hollow and concave nanocrystals find applications in many fields, and their fabrication can follow different possible mechanisms. We report a new route to these nanostructures that exploits the oxidation of Cu(2-x)Se/Cu(2-x)S core/shell nanocrystals with various etchants. Even though the Cu(2-x)Se core is encased in a thick Cu(2-x)S shell, the initial(More)
—This paper proposes a novel tractable approach for accurately analyzing both the coverage probability and the achievable throughput of cellular networks. Specifically, we derive a new procedure referred to as the equivalent uniform-density plane-entity (EUDPE) method for evaluating the other-cell interference. Furthermore, we demonstrate that our EUDPE(More)
We demonstrate the stabilization of the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) in a semiconductor-based core-shell heterostructure made of a plasmonic CuS core embedded in an amorphous-like alloyed CuPd x S shell. This heterostructure is prepared by reacting the as-synthesized CuS nanocrystals (NCs) with Pd2+ cations at room temperature in the presence(More)
