Growth and characterization of FeSi nanowires by chemical vapor deposition for gas sensing applications
(University of the Western Cape, 2014)
FeSi nanowires were synthesized via a chemical vapor deposition method. Anhydrous FeCl3 powder in this case served as the Fe source and was evaporated at a temperature of 1100oC to interact with silicon substrates which ...
Hot-wire chemical vapour deposition of carbon Nanotubes
(University of the Western Cape, 2006)
In this study we report on the effect of the deposition parameters on the morphology and structural properties of CNTs, synthesized by means of the hot-wire chemical vapour deposition technique. SEM, Raman and XRD results ...
Charge transfer efficiency and optical properties of P3HT/PCBM spin coated thin films
The efficiency of organic photovoltaics is influenced by the structure of the polymer, the morphology of the film, the interfaces between the layers, the choice of electron acceptor material and the ratio between the ...
Synthesis and characterisation of 114Cd targets
To study nuclear reactions and nuclear structures, target materials are bombarded with high-energy particles. The target material can either be in a form of a metal film or gas. A target material designed to study certain ...
Giant Magnetocaloric effect and Magnetic Properties of selected Rare-Earth compounds
(University of the Western Cape, 2021)
Rare-earth (RE) compounds have been an attractive subject, based on the unique electronic structures of the rare-earth elements. In particular, the RETX (RE = rare-earth, T = 3d/4d/5d, transition metals, and X = p – block ...
