The scintillation response of LaBr3:Ce scintillation crystals was studied as function of temperature and Ce concentration with synchrotron X-rays between 9?keV and 100?keV. The results were analyzed using the theory of carrier transport in wide band gap semiconductors to gain new insights into charge carrier generation, diffusion, and capture...

The effective field torque of an yttrium-iron-garnet (YIG) film on the spin accumulation in an attached platinum (Pt) film is measured by the spin-Hall magnetoresistance (SMR). As a result, the magnetization direction of a ferromagnetic insulating layer can be measured electrically. Experimental transverse and longitudinal resistances are well...

Despite the broad use of enzymes in electroanalytical biosensors, the influence of enzyme kinetics on the function of prototype sensors is often overlooked or neglected. In the present study, we employ amperometry as an alternative or complementary method to study the kinetics of tyrosinase, whose catalytic activity results in o-quinone products...

This paper demonstrates electron-beam-induced deposition of few-nm-width dense features on bulk samples by using a scanning electron-beam lithography system. To optimize the resultant features, three steps were taken: (1) features were exposed in a repetitive sequence, so as to build up the deposited features gradually across the entire pattern,...

Around 2004 the annual energy consumption of the Dutch (petro-)chemical industry was estimated to be 460 PJ of which 200 PJ could be allocated to separation processes [1]. In 2009, 15% of the global energy consumption was required for separation and purification processes to produce commodities. Moreover, it is expected that in 2040 the global...

In this work we present a unique transmission electron microscopy study of the thermal stability of gas phase synthesized Mg nanoparticles, which have attracted strong interest as high capacity hydrogen storage materials. Indeed, Mg nanoparticles with a MgO shell ( ? 3?nm thick) annealed at 300?°C show evaporation, void formation, and void...

We investigate the role of coherency strains on the thermodynamics of two-phase coexistence during Li (de)intercalation of LixFePO4. We explicitly account for the anisotropy of the elastic moduli and analytically derive coupled chemical and mechanical equilibrium criteria for two-phase morphologies observed experimentally. Coherent two-phase...

We report ab initio calculations based on density-functional theory, of the vacancy-mediated hydrogen migration energy in bulk NaH and near the NaH(001) surface. The estimated rate of the vacancy mediated hydrogen transport, obtained within a hopping diffusion model, is consistent with the reaction rates of H-D exchange in nano-NaH at the...

The exciton root-mean-square displacement (?D) in regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) deposited onto meso-tetrakis (n-methyl-4-pyridyl) porphyrin tetrachloride (H2TMPyP) has been determined from the photovoltaic response of a device based on these materials in a bilayer configuration. Excitons formed on illumination that reach the...

We discuss the thermal motion of colloidal particles in transient polymer networks. For particles that are physically bound to the surrounding chains, light-scattering experiments reveal that the submillisecond dynamics changes from diffusive to Rouse-like upon crossing the network formation threshold. Particles that are not bound do not show...

Turbulent fiber suspension channel flow is studied using direct numerical simulation. The effect of the fibers on the fluid mechanics is governed by a stress tensor, involving the distribution of fiber position and orientation. Properties of this function in channel flow are studied by computing the trajectories and orientations of individual...

A theory is presented for ?C, the coefficient of the first-order correction in the density of the collective diffusion coefficient, for protein spheres interacting by electrostatic and adhesive forces. An extensive numerical analysis of the Stokesian hydrodynamics of two moving spheres is given so as to gauge the precise impact of lubrication...

Branched hydrocarbons are preferred to linear hydrocarbons as ingredients in petrol, as they enhance the fuel octane number. By catalytic isomerisation linear hydrocarbons are converted into branched hydrocarbons, then it becomes necessary to separate the mixture. A variety of zeolites may be used for this purpose, either on thermodynamics or...

Water diffusion through OmpF, a porin in the outer membrane of Escherichia coli, is studied by molecular dynamics simulation. A first passage time approach allows characterizing the diffusive properties of a well-defined region of this channel. A carbon nanotube, which is considerably more homogeneous, serves as a model to validate the...

Zeolites are crystalline microporous materials consisting of silicon, aluminium and oxygen atoms. A unique combination of properties such as high surface area, high (hydro)thermal stability, and strong acidity, makes that zeolites are frequently used as catalysts in various (petro)chemical processes. The pores of molecular dimensions are...

We present a semimathematical model for the simulation of the impedance spectra of a rechargeable lithium batteries consisting of porous electrodes with spherical Li+ intercalation particles. The particles are considered to have two distinct homogeneous phases as a result of the intercalation and deintercalation of Li+ during charge and...

The feasibility of using zeolites, and more specifically the clathrasil subgroup, for hydrogen storage has been investigated by comparing their H2 loading rate and storage capacity to the technically required values. The uptake rate and capacity are determined by means of computational modelling for a large number of clathrasil structures. It...

The effect of pore surface roughness on Knudsen diffusion in nanoporous media is investigated by dynamic Monte Carlo simulations and analytical calculations. A conceptual difference is found between the roughness dependence of the macroscopic, transport diffusivity and the microscopic, self-diffusivity, which is reminiscent of diffusion in...
