First-Principles Estimation of Core Level Shifts for Hf, Ta, W, and Re
A simple first-principles approach is used to estimate the core level shifts observed in X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy for the 4f electrons of Hf, Ta, W, and Re; these elements were selected
Synthesis and Characterization of Ti-Ta-Shape Memory Surface Alloys Formed by the Electron-Beam Additive Technique
The electron-beam cycling additive technique was proposed for the formation of shape memory Ti-Ta coatings on titanium substrate. On a commercially pure Ti plate, Ta film with a thickness of about 4
Influence of Beam Power on Young’s Modulus and Friction Coefficient of Ti–Ta Alloys Formed by Electron-Beam Surface Alloying
In this study, we present the results of Young’s modulus and coefficient of friction (COF) of Ti–Ta surface alloys formed by electron-beam surface alloying by a scanning electron beam. Ta films were
Tantalum Alloy Welding: Does the Thermal Cycle Influence the Microstructure?
The aim of the present work is to verify the microstructural behavior of a B 521 tantalum alloy UNS Grade R05200 after welding, in relation to the welding thermal cycle. The joint design was a 1.5 mm
Broadband 3-D Boundary Integral Equation Characterization of Composite Conductors
In this contribution, an improved 3-D differential surface admittance operator is employed in the simulation of composite conductors. By utilizing closed sums of infinite series that are present in

Photoemission studies with synchrotron radiation of surface core-level shifts in metals are reviewed. Models of surface shifts in d transition metals are discussed together with applications to
Structural and Electronic Properties of Pure Ta, TaNO, and TaZrNO with Ab Initio Calculations
This paper presents the results of self-consistent first-principle calculations for the crystal structure and electronic structure of pure tantalum, TaNO, and TaZrNO within density functional theory
Cluster core-level binding-energy shifts: the role of lattice strain.
Our combined experimental and theoretical analysis of the shifts, with particle size, of core-level binding energies (BE's) of metal nanoparticles on insulating supports, shows that these shifts have
The self-hosting structure of β-Ta
Using electrodeposition from a bath of molten fluorides, single crystals of tetragonal β-tantalum have been obtained for the first time at normal pressure. The unit-cell parameters are a = 10.211
