More details: Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the latest devices and the phosphors currently employed in them. Many phosphors that have been developed for the particular display purposes are discussed. The chapter discusses how the light sources such as, incandescent and fluorescent lamps are going to become obsolete as the quality of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) improves. The phosphors will continue to be used to make light emitting \{LED\} light sources. The main advantage of the \{LED\} lamp is that, it uses milliwatts of power, compared to watts of power for the incandescent and fluorescent lamp. The chapter surveys the present-day devices utilizing phosphors emphasizing the recent improvements made in cathode-ray tubes (CRT) and fluorescent lamps. The devices that depend upon thin film deposition for the manufacture of the appliance are described. The devices that use phosphors responding to high energy photons like X-rays and gamma rays (high energy X-rays) are described. The chapter also describes scintillators that are the phosphors used to detect $\alpha$, $\beta$ and $\gamma$ rays from incident sources.

More details: Publisher Summary The chapter overviews the methods for producing ordered two-dimensional arrays from colloid particles and proteins in relation to their physical mechanisms and driving forces. The chapter focuses on the method for obtaining particle and protein two- dimensional arrays in evaporating liquid suspension films. The respective mechanism of two-dimensional crystallization is based on the fact that the decrease of the film thickness (because of evaporation) forces the particles to enter and/or deform the liquid interface that automatically ?ǣswitches on?�? the strong attraction because of the capillary immersion force. The chapter describes the the occurrence and advantages of two-dimensional array formation over a liquid substrate: fluorinated oil and mercury. The particle size separation during two-dimensional crystallization and the methods for obtaining large two-dimensional crystalline coatings on solid substrates are described in the chapter. This chapter considers only the formation of two-dimensional arrays in free foam films and their observation by electron cryomicroscopy, which ensures an excellent structure preservation of delicate vesicles or molecular complexes. The chapter reviews the various applications of particulate two-dimensional arrays in optics, optoelectronics, nano-lithography, microcontact printing, in fabrication of nanostructured surfaces for catalytic films and solar cells, as well as the usage of protein two-dimensional crystals for immunosensors and extremely isoporous ultrafiltration membranes?��for creation of bioelectronic and biophotonic devices.

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/B9780750633659500134
More details: Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the discovery, isolation, abundance, and distribution of aluminum, gallium, indium, and thallium. Aluminum is a major constituent of many common igneous minerals, including feldspars and micas. Gallium, indium, and thallium are less abundant than aluminum and tend to occur at low concentrations in sulfide minerals rather than in oxides. The chapter describes the preparation and uses of the aluminum, gallium, indium, and thallium. The production of aluminum metal involves two stages: first, the extraction, purification, and dehydration of bauxite, and, second, the process of electrolysis of aluminum oxide dissolved in molten cryolite. The chapter also discusses the atomic and physical properties of aluminum, gallium, indium, and thallium. Indium is a soft and silvery metal with a brilliant luster. Its important applications are in low-melting alloys and in electronic devices. Technical-grade thallium is purified from other flue-dust elements by dissolving it in warm dilute acid and then precipitating the insoluble lead sulfate and adding hydrogen chloride to precipitate thallium chloride.

Chapter 6 Friction

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0167892208706795
More details: Publisher Summary The friction between two solid surfaces in solid-state contact is the resistance to tangential motion of one surface over the other, whether that motion be sliding, rolling, or rubbing contact. There are two types of friction, static and dynamic. Static friction is the force required to initiate motion between two solid surfaces, or the force necessary to break the junctions that form at the interface between two solid surfaces. Dynamic friction is the friction associated with one surface sliding, rolling, or rubbing over another. Many compounds are added to conventional oils to act as extreme pressure or anti-wear additives in lubricants. There are also solid film lubricants that are applied to surfaces to reduce adhesion, friction, and wear. Many of these compounds rely on a reaction with the solid surface to provide a protective surface film. The coefficient of friction is the frictional force divided by the load applied to the two surfaces in contact.

More details: Publisher Summary When two solid surfaces are brought into contact, adhesion or bonding across the interface can occur. If two solid surfaces are clean and all of the adsorbates are removed, adhesion or bonding of one solid to another always occurs. The nature of the bond strength formed at the interface between the two solid surfaces is a function of the materials in contact. Both adhesion and cohesion are extremely important to the tribologist because they can dictate, to a very large extent, the adhesion and friction forces measured between two solid surfaces in contact. The function of a lubricant is to reduce and minimize the adhesive forces. Solids can be divided into two classes: (1) the relatively brittle materials, and (2) the plastic, or ductile, materials. The simplest way to demonstrate the cohesive bonding forces in a solid is to cleave it along its cleavage plane.

More details: With the assistance of urea, uniform 2D nanoflakes assembled 3D In2S3 microflowers were synthesized via a facile hydrothermal method at relative low temperature. The properties of the as-obtained In2S3 flowers were characterized by various techniques. In this work, the utilization of urea and l-cysteine, as well as the amount of them played important roles in the formation of In2S3 with different nanostructures. Inferred from their morphology evolution, a urea induced precursor-decomposition associated with the Ostwald-ripening mechanism was proposed to interpret these hierarchical structure formation. Furthermore, the optical properties of these In2S3 microflowers were investigated via UV?��vis absorption and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopies in detail. A. Semiconductors,B.

More details: Nanocrystals exhibit interesting optical, electrical, and chemical properties that are not found in their bulk counterparts. Quantum-confinement effects mean that small changes in their size and shape can have significant effects on physical properties and spectroscopy of nanocrystals. Size and shape control has been a hot topic during the development of the field of nanocrystal synthesis. Current success in colloidal chemistry has produced a great variety of nanocrystals with controlled size and shape, which could be used as functional materials for numerous applications. In addition to size and shape control, phase and composition control also provides additional space to tune the properties of nanocrystals. Further exploration on nanocrystal synthesis has led to the preparation of new-generation nanocrystals, including nanocrystal heterostructures and doped nanocrystals. In this chapter, we present an overview of nanocrystal synthesis with an emphasis on the solution synthesis of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals.

Effect of silica wall microporosity on the state and performance of TiO2 nanocrystals in SBA-15 matrix

Title Effect of silica wall microporosity on the state and performance of TiO2 nanocrystals in SBA-15 matrix

More details: TiO2 guest phase was incorporated by internal hydrolysis (IH) method inside SBA-15 mesostructured silica matrices with high and low microporosity (14.2\% and 4.7\% of microporous pore volume, respectively). TiO2 phase was located inside the SBA-15 pores in form of small crystals with anatase structure without blocking the mesopores over wide range of loadings (8?��50\&\#xa0;wt\%) (N2 sorption, \{HRTEM\} and XRD). In the highly microporous SBA-15 (SBA-15-HM), the crystallization of titania anatase phase was detected at 150\&\#xa0;??C due to initiation of the crystallization process in the micropores. This is supported by the fact that the crystallization was significantly delayed and started at 350\&\#xa0;??C inside the SBA-15 with low microporosity (SBA-15-LM). Therefore, it was proposed that the formation of nanocrystalline titania in SBA-15 micropores initiates the nucleation stage thus enhancing the crystallization process of titania in the mesopores. Furthermore, micropores enhanced the dispersion of TiO2 phase. As a result, TiO2/SBA-15-HM adsorbed more vanadia than TiO2/SBA-15-LM. The catalytic activity in selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of \{NO\} with ammonia was proportional to the vanadia content. Thus, V2O5-TiO2/SBA-15-HM catalysts were more active than V2O5?��TiO2/SBA-15-LM at all TiO2 loadings due to the higher vanadia content in TiO2/SBA-15-HM than in TiO2/SBA-15-LM. These results show that SBA-15 wall microporosity strongly affects the crystallization, state and performance of the guest phase confined in mesoporous channels of silica matrix.

More details: We have reported main group metal chalcogenido clusters of cubic [InQ(phen)Cl]4 (Q\&\#xa0;\#xa0;S (1) and Se (2); phen\&\#xa0;\#xa0;1,10-phenanthroline). Herein two new cubic clusters with ligand of 2,2?�?-bipyridine (bpy) have been synthesized by solvothermal technique, [InSe(bpy)Cl]4 (3) and [InS(bpy)Cl]4??H2O (4). The molecular structures and electronic states of compounds 3 and 4 are presented by comparing with those of 1 and 2. Though the clusters of 1?��4 are similar, their packing structures show diverse modes. Spectroscopic study and theoretical calculation indicate that introducing phen/bpy to chalcogenido clusters can decrease the energy gap of frontier orbitals from \{HOMO\} to \{LUMO\} due to the cluster to ligand charge-transfer (CLCT). Increasing the conjugated system of the organic ligand or using the heavier chalcogenido element might improve the photophysical absorption of the materials.

Journal of Crystal Growth, 2010

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0022024809011063
More details: Indium sulphide nanowires (NWs) have been grown on Si via the reaction of In and InCl3 with \{H2S\} using chemical vapor deposition at temperatures as low as 250\&\#xa0;??C. We find that the growth of InxSy \{NWs\} via the direct reaction of In with \{H2S\} is hindered by the formation of InxSy around the source of In which limits its vapor pressure. Thus a low yield of InxSy \{NWs\} with diameters of ?��100\&\#xa0;nm, lengths up to ?��5\&\#xa0;$\mu$m and hexagonal crystals measuring ?��500\&\#xa0;nm across, were obtained between 500 and 600\&\#xa0;??C, but their growth was not uniform or reproducible. These exhibited weak, but nevertheless clear peaks, in the X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectrum corresponding to tetragonal $\beta$-In2S3 and orthorhombic InS. No \{NWs\} were obtained for TG?��500\&\#xa0;??C while for TG\>600\&\#xa0;??C we obtained a polycrystalline layer with oriented grains of triangular shape. In contrast, a high yield of InS \{NWs\} with diameters ?��200\&\#xa0;nm and lengths up to ?��2\&\#xa0;$\mu$m were obtained at temperatures as low as 250\&\#xa0;??C via the reaction of In and InCl3 with H2S. The sublimation of InCl3 enhances the vapor pressure of In and the growth of InS NWs, which organize themselves in urchin like structures at 300\&\#xa0;??C, exhibiting very intense peaks in the \{XRD\} spectrum, corresponding mainly to orthorhombic InS. Optical transmission measurements through the InS \{NWs\} gave a band-gap of 2.4\&\#xa0;eV. A1. Nanostructures,A3. Chemical vapor deposition processes,B1. Nanomaterials,B1. Sulfides,B2.

More details: Considering chalcogenide transport processes with a participation of indium and indium sulfides in the closed system it was found that non-isothermal conditions are insufficient for a noticeable reversible indium transfer. The main reason for this fact was considered as a deficiency of indium halides with a high oxidation degree of indium which are in the equilibrium in the vapor with condensed indium or its lower sulfides. To provide chemical transport that is impossible in the usual experimental conditions a new way was proposed and applied implying dilution of a charge (source or getter of indium) with inactive diluent. One of the probable diluents is gold. The probability of reversible and selective chemical transport was proved for indium in the system ?ǣindium sulfides ?�� vapor of In chlorides ?�� (Au?��In) charge?�?. Conditions for performing the non-destructive composition control of indium sulfides in the non-destructive chemical transport were determined.

More details: Abstract We have developed and put in practice a spectrophotometric procedure for hydrogen sulfide determination to study the phase diagram of the In?��S system using hydrogen as an auxiliary component. Elemental analysis of the hydrogen-containing vapor phase allows the principal thermodynamic properties of the indium sulfides in equilibrium with the vapor phase to be assessed in wide temperature and composition ranges. Our results confirm the existence of a narrow two-phase field between In3?��xS4 and In2S3?�? (low-temperature phase), which is bounded from above by the peritectic decomposition temperature of In2S3?�? (about 415\&\#xa0;??C). We have determined the temperature-dependent sulfur (S2) vapor pressure over condensed indium sulfides. For the equilibria studied in greatest detail, the present results correlate well with mass spectrometry data for indium sulfides.

More details: Publisher Summary This chapter presents the density of solid for inorganic compounds in tabular form. The tabulation is arranged by alphabetical order such as Ag, Al, Ar, and Zr to provide ease of use in quickly locating the data by using the chemical formula. The compound name and chemical abstracts registry number (CAS No) are also provided in columns. Values for representative temperature and density at the representative temperature are given in the adjacent columns. The next column provides the code for the tabulation. In preparing the tabulation, a literature search is conducted to identify data source publications. Both experimental values for the property under consideration and parameter values for estimation of the property are included in the source publications. The publications are screened, and copies of appropriate data are made. These data are keyed into the computer to provide a database of values for compounds for which experimental data are available. The database also serves as a basis to check the accuracy of the estimation methods. Upon completion of data collection, estimation of values for the remaining compounds is performed. The compilations of CRC, Daubert and Danner, Landolt and Bornstein, and Yaws are used extensively for solid density. Many of the estimates are based on extending the liquid density to the triple point.

Thin films were deposited from acidic aqueous solution containinng CuSO4, In2(SO4)3 and Na2S2O3 at ?��0.9 V vs. Ag/AgCl for 300?��1200 s. Single phase CuInS2 films were obtained at pH about 1.5 by the correct adjustment of the Cu2+/In3+ ratio, with the concentration of Na2S2O3 fixed at 400 mM. Well-crystallized films were obtained by annealing in vacuum at 673 K. From \{EDX\} analysis, it was found that the compound CuInS2 did not always exist in exact stoichiometry of Cu:In:S :1:2. The conduction type of the film changed from p to n in the indium-rich region. This result suggests the possibility of controlling the properties of thin films by varying the concentration of each chemical in the initial electrolytic solution.

More details: $\beta$-In2S3 films were grown on glass as well as on quartz substrates by rapid heating of metallic indium films in \{H2S\} atmosphere. The effect of sulfurization temperature and time on the growth, structural, electrical and photoelectrical properties of $\beta$-In2S3 films has been investigated. Highly oriented single-phase $\beta$-In2S3 films were grown by the sulfurization technique. The morphology and composition of films have been characterized. The optical band gap of $\beta$-In2S3 is found to vary from 1.9 to 2.5\&\#xa0;eV when the sulfurization temperature is varied from 300 to 600\&\#xa0;??C or by increasing the sulfurization time. The electrical properties of the thin films have also been studied; they have n-type electrical conductivity. The photoelectrical properties of the $\beta$-In2S3 films are also found to depend on the sulfurizing temperature. A high photoresponse is obtained for films prepared at a sulfurizing temperature of 600\&\#xa0;??C. $\beta$-In2S3 can be used as an alternative to toxic CdS as a window layer in photovoltaic technology.

More details: The Tethyan Metallogenic Belt (TMB), extending from Europe through Anatolia to Iran, is one of the world's major metal producing belts, and consists of many sectors. Mineral deposits of the Biga Peninsula in northwestern Turkey exhibit, in many ways, the characteristics of mineral deposits found throughout the belt. Biga Peninsula tectonically forms the westernmost part of the Sakarya Zone and easternmost part of the Rhodope Zone at the intersection of Gondwana and Laurasia. The Biga Peninsula metallogeny research and exploration project created a \{GIS\} inventory of mineral deposits and prospects, and classified them genetically to evaluate the mineral deposit potential using genetic models based on descriptive data. The \{GIS\} database, consisting of 128 deposits or prospects, helped to generate new prospects and potential prospects. This field-based study indicated that the Biga Peninsula forms a prime target for gold?��copper exploration not only in Turkey but in the world. The current economically significant mineral deposits of the Biga Peninsula were shaped by Cenozoic calc-alkaline magmatism, ranging between 52 and 18\&\#xa0;Ma, and related to mainly collisional and post-collisional tectonic regime. Epithermal Au?��Ag deposits including high-(HS), low-(LS) and intermediate-sulfidation (IS) styles, porphyry Au?��Cu?��Mo and base-metal skarn systems are economically the most important. Though there are no currently economic examples of some of them in the Biga Peninsula, other deposit types include Carlin-like distal disseminated Au?��Ag, orogenic Au, especially listwanite hosted, volcanogenic Mn and U, lateritic (ferricrete) Fe deposits, carbonate replacement (CR) and placers. Several active metal mines, such as Balya, Arapucandere and Koru, are operating in the Biga Peninsula. Kucukdere Au?��Ag deposit in Balikesir is the only gold mine in the Biga Peninsula, except for by-product gold produced from base-metal deposits. Results of the study show current total gold endowment of the Biga Peninsula including reserves and/or resources is 9.18\&\#xa0;Moz gold [284.2\&\#xa0;t] contained in twelve different deposits. Of these only 6 contain significant gold [\>\&\#xa0;0.3\&\#xa0;Moz or 10\&\#xa0;t]. Halilaga porphyry and Agi Dagi and Kirazli \{HS\} epithermal systems have an ongoing resource estimate, and Halilaga is a candidate to be one of the largest Cu?��Au deposits not only in the Biga Peninsula, but in Turkey. Currently newly discovered Tepeoba is the largest porphyry Cu?��Mo?��Au deposit with known resources in the Biga Peninsula. Here, the first40Ar/39Ar step-heating age data conducted on some of the major \{HS\} epithermal gold deposits and causative intrusives in the Biga Peninsula are reported. Geochronological results from this project, evaluated with previous studies, indicate at least 3 phases of porphyry and 2 phases of high-sulfidation epithermal gold mineralization in the Biga Peninsula. The most important mineralizing phases and related host rocks for gold mineralization range from 38 to 22\&\#xa0;Ma. The Oligocene is especially important for economic epithermal and porphyry systems in the Biga Peninsula, which is comparable to deposits in the Oligo-Miocene Serbomacedonian-Rhodope metallogenic belt of the Balkan Peninsula in \{SE\} Europe.

Indium and tin in basalts, sulfides, and the mantle

More details: The geochemistry of In and Sn are poorly understood, in part, because of difficulties in obtaining accurate concentrations for these elements in geological materials. Furthermore, InSn ratios in sulfides could be sufficiently high to facilitate the use of 115In?�?115Sn geochronology, if the separation and precise measurement techniques were available. In this paper we describe methods for the separation of In and Sn from silicates and sulfides. Indium can be measured by thermal ionization mass spectrometry (TIMS) at very high sensitivity ( \> 13\%). However, its mass fractionation is difficult to correct reliably. Tin is more difficult to measure by \{TIMS\} because of its higher ionization potential. Both elements can be measured effectively using the new technique of MC-ICPMS, since the ionization efficiency is extremely high, molecular interferences are negligible, and mass fractionation in spiked In and Sn can be corrected by monitoring the mass bias in admixed Pd and Sb, respectively. Using these techniques, it is demonstrated that In and Sn concentrations can be measured reliably for silicates and sulfides. Indium and Sn data for international silicate rock standards are in excellent agreement with recommended values. The SnSm ratios determined for ocean island basalts (0113) are within the same range as those recently reported, where Sn was measured by spark source mass spectrometry. Indium is very uniform in \{OIB\} and behaves as a slightly incompatible trace element, comparable in bulk distribution coefficient to the heavy rare earths or Y. InY in 0113 is very uniform, averaging 0.0028 ?? 0.0005 (I$\sigma$), but is weakly related with PbCe, implying that these ratios may be partly controlled by sulfide at small degrees of partial melting. The similarity in average InY between OIB, N-MORB (0.0025) and the continental crust (0.0025), together with the similarity in SnSm in MORB, OIB, and continental crust contrasts with chalcophile/lithophile and siderophile/lithophile element ratios such as PbCe and WBa, which are high in the continental crust because of decoupling in the subduction environment. The overall behavior of both In and Sn within the silicate Earth is dominated by lithophile affinity. The primitive mantle is estimated to have InY .003 ??0.001, both higher and lower than previous estimates and corresponding to an In concentration of 14 ppb. Ignoring any In that may have been partitioned into the core, the corresponding total Earth concentration of \>10 ppb corresponds to \<85\% depletion relative to \{CI\} chondrites. This is less depleted than anticipated by at least a factor of 2, given the supposed volatility of In based on assumed condensation temperatures and depletions in volatile lithophile elements. There is no evidence that In has been segregated into the Earth's core. This can be explained if, during the earlier stages of accretion, under reducing conditions, In was too volatile to be transferred into the core. During the later stages of accretion, conditions may have been relatively oxidising such that In behaved as a lithophile element with higher condensation temperature rather than as a volatile chalcophile element. Hence, the InY ratio of Earth's primitive mantle may be representative of the mixture of volatile depleted and undepleted material that accreted in the inner solar system. \{SNC\} meteorites have a similar range of InY to the silicate Earth, suggesting Mars accreted from a similar mixture of material already depleted in In, and presumably other moderately volatile elements. In contrast, the InY ratio in lunar basalts ranges through four orders of magnitude from silicate Earth values in lunar soils to extremely In-depleted compositions. This is unlikely to be caused by heterogeneous distributions of extreme In depletion on the Moon as a result of volatile depletion. Rather, the more reducing conditions appear to result in In behaving as a relatively compatible trace element during lunar melting and differentiation. Although their behavior on Earth is strongly lithophile, In and Sn are sometimes enriched in sulfides and InSn can be sufficiently high in some sphalerite, chalcopyite, and tetrahedrite that the predicted 115Sn excess caused by decay of 115In in ancient sulfide deposits should be measurable with MC-ICPMS.

More details: The Mn-substituted CuInS2 compounds (CuIn1?��xMnxS2 with x?�0?��0.20 and Cu1?��yMnyInS2 with y?�0.05?��0.10) were synthesized using high-temperature solid?��state reactions. Single-phase materials with the chalcopyrite structure persist with up to 10\% of the Cu/In sites being replaced with Mn. The introduction of manganese results in a linear expansion of the lattice parameters as a function of Mn concentration, following Vegard's law. Rietveld refinements on a combination of X-ray and neutron powder diffraction data reveal a site preference of Mn for the In site under In-poor conditions and the existence of cation anti-site occupation, CuIn and InCu. The Mn substitution increases the anion displacement, accentuating the cation-anion bond length mismatch. The greater variance in the bond alternation and the addition of Mn d?��S p hybridization near the Fermi level result in a decrease in the bandgap by ?�?0.1?�eV. The CuInS2:Mn compounds display paramagnetic behavior with short-range antiferromagnetic interactions. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy suggests the presence of Cu+, Mn2+, and In3+ in the samples.

More details: Porous In2O3 nanotubes (NTs) and nanowires (NWs) in cubic phase were fabricated via electrospinning and characterized by scan electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and \{N2\} adsorption experiments. The \{NTs\} had an average outer diameter of ?�?80\&\#xa0;nm and wall thickness of ?�?15\&\#xa0;nm, while the \{NWs\} had a diameter of ?�?120\&\#xa0;nm. The gas sensing properties of the prepared NTs/NWs were measured for H2S. The results demonstrate that the sensors had optimum and high responses to \{H2S\} at room temperature in dilute 1?��100\&\#xa0;ppm concentration range. They also display excellent selectivity, anti-interference and stability. The gas sensing mechanism at room temperature was attributed to the sulfuration of In2O3. The present electrospun In2O3 NTs/NWs have demonstrated the potential applied for \{H2S\} gas detection under room temperature. Electrospinning,Gas sensor,Indium oxide,Nanotubes,Nanowires

More details: The effect of potassium hydrogen phthalate (C8H5KO4) as a special additive on the one-step electrodeposition of single-phase CuInS2 thin films from acidic solution (pH 2.5) was investigated in detail. The XRD, \{SEM\} and UV?��vis?��NIR characterization confirms that the addition of an adequate concentration of \{C8H5KO4\} (23\&\#xa0;mM) to the electrolytic bath containing 12.5\&\#xa0;mM Cu2+, 10\&\#xa0;mM In3+, 40\&\#xa0;mM S2O32?�� and 100\&\#xa0;mM LiCl can contribute greatly to the controllable growth of pure chalcopyrite CuInS2 films with uniform surfaces and an ideal band gap of approximately 1.54\&\#xa0;eV. Complexation studies of \{C8H5KO4\} with Cu2+ and In3+ in electrolytic solutions indicated that \{C8H5KO4\} can complex Cu2+ more strongly than In3+ and move the electrode potentials of Cu2+ and In3+ near each other as determined by polarization analysis. Furthermore, the potentiodynamic polarization and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) analysis performed in a series of solution systems revealed a three-step reaction mechanism for CuInS2 deposition and considerable adsorption of C8H5O4?�� and Cu(C8H5O4)+ to the cathode surface. This deposition shows that the synergetic effects of complexation and adsorption originated from the additive on the Cu2+ electro-reduction, thus promoting the co-deposition of copper, indium and sulfur in the form of single-phase CuInS2.

More details: The abundances of 30 trace elements, including the volatile chalcophile/siderophile elements As, Cd, Ga, In and Sn were determined by laser ablation ICP-MS in minerals of 19 anhydrous and 5 hydrous spinel peridotite xenoliths from three continents. The majority of samples were fertile lherzolites with more than 5\% clinopyroxene; several samples have major element compositions close to estimates of the primitive mantle. All samples have been previously analysed for bulk-rock major, minor and lithophile trace elements. They cover a wide range of equilibration temperatures from about 850 to 1250\&\#xa0;??C and a pressure range from 0.8 to 3.0\&\#xa0;GPa. A comparison of results from bulk-rock analyses with concentrations obtained from combining silicate and oxide mineral data with modal mineralogy, gave excellent agreement, with the exception of As. Arsenic is the only element analysed that has high concentrations in sulphides. For all other elements sulphides can be neglected as host phases in these mantle rocks. The major host phase for Cd, In and Sn is clinopyroxene and if present, amphibole. Cadmium and In appear to behave moderately incompatibly during mantle melting similar to Yb. The data yield new and more reliable mantle abundances for Cd (35\&\#xa0;??\&\#xa0;7\&\#xa0;ppb), In (18\&\#xa0;??\&\#xa0;3\&\#xa0;ppb) and Sn (91\&\#xa0;??\&\#xa0;28\&\#xa0;ppb). The In value is similar to the Mg and CI-normalized Zn abundance of the mantle, although In is cosmochemically more volatile than Zn. The high In content suggests a high content of volatile elements in general in proto-Earth material. The lower relative abundances of volatile chalcophile elements such as Cd, S, Se and Te might be explained by sulphide segregation during core formation. The very low relative abundances of volatile and highly incompatible lithophile elements such as Br, Cl and I, and also C, N and rare gases, imply loss during Earth accretion, arguably by collisional erosion from differentiated planetesimals and protoplanets.

Determination of phosphorus, sulfur and the halogens using high-temperature molecular absorption spectrometry in flames and furnaces???A review

More details: The literature about the investigation of molecular spectra of phosphorus, sulfur and the halogens in flames and furnaces, and the use of these spectra for the determination of these non-metals has been reviewed. Most of the investigations were carried out using conventional atomic absorption spectrometers, and there were in essence two different approaches. In the first one, dual-channel spectrometers with a hydrogen or deuterium lamp were used, applying the two-line method for background correction; in the second one, a line source was used that emitted an atomic line, which overlapped with the molecular spectrum. The first approach had the advantage that any spectral interval could be accessed, but it was susceptible to spectral interference; the second one had the advantage that the conventional background correction systems could be used to minimize spectral interferences, but had the problem that an atomic line had to be found, which was overlapping sufficiently well with the maximum of the molecular absorption spectrum. More recently a variety of molecular absorption spectra were investigated using a low-resolution polychromator with a \{CCD\} array detector, but no attempt was made to use this approach for quantitative determination of non-metals. The recent introduction and commercial availability of high-resolution continuum source atomic absorption spectrometers is offering completely new possibilities for molecular absorption spectrometry and its use for the determination of non-metals. The use of a high-intensity continuum source together with a high-resolution spectrometer and a \{CCD\} array detector makes possible selecting the optimum wavelength for the determination and to exclude most spectral interferences.

More details: An X-ray diffraction study was made on a new polymorphic phase of InSe obtained by heating a layered crystal of the 3R($\gamma$) polytype under pressures of 40 and 50 kbar and by quenching to ambient conditions. An analysis of the diffraction intensity data collected on precession and Debye photographs gave a monoclinic structure (space group C12h) with four molecules in a unit cell. Upon transformation, new, short interatomic distances characteristic of covalent bonding are formed between indium and selenium atoms that were originally located in the adjacent layers. The structure is regarded as a modified version of the nonlayered InS-type structure. In the real structure of the high-pressure phase, however, there is a small amount of disorder in the orientation of the In?�?In bonds. Discussion is given on the reconstructive, layer-nonlayer transformation of InSe.

More details: The preparation of mutual dissoluted In2O3SnO2 single crystals by the chemical transport method has been investigated. The transport reactions were performed using either iodine and sulphur simultaneously or chlorine as transporting agents and a mixture of pure oxides (4N) as source material. The highest concentration values of dissolved oxide were obtained after a sequential transport starting from a two phase region from 1250 to 1200 K. In this case, the maximum solubilities have been determined, indium oxide crystals with 8.2 mol\% tin oxide and tin oxide crystals with 2.4 mol\% indium oxide were grown. The experiments were explained with thermodynamical process calculations introducing the description of the solid phases as regular solid solutions consisting of nonstoichiometric binary oxides.

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijp/2011/801292/
More details: The research in thin film solar cells has been dominated by light absorber materials based on CdTe and Cu(In,Ga)Se2 (CIGS) in the last several decades. The concerns of environment impact of cadmium and the limited availability of indium in thosematerials have driven the research towards developing new substitute light absorbersmade fromearth abundant, environment benignmaterials. Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) semiconductor material has emerged as one of the most promising candidates for this aim and has attracted considerable interest recently. Significant progress in this relatively new research area has been achieved in the last three years. Over 130 papers on CZTS have been published since 2007, and the majority of them are on the preparation of CZTS thin films by different methods. This paper, will review the wide range of techniques that have been used to deposit CZTS semiconductor thin films.

More details: Although thermodynamically non-noble, many metals and their alloys are in practice resistant to corrosion with equilibrium potentials much higher than their reversible potentials (see the practical potential series, figure 11.17 of Surface, Interfaces, and their Applications I). This behavior is due to a spontaneous formation of a thin protecting oxide layer, the passive layer, as a product of the anodic metal dissolution.CMOS (passivation)

More details: Thin film solar cells made from earth-abundant, non-toxic materials are needed to replace the current technology that uses Cu(In,Ga)(S,Se) 2 and CdTe, which contain scarce and toxic elements. One promising candidate absorber material is tin monosulfide (SnS). In this report, pure, stoichiometric, singlephase SnS films were obtained by atomic layer deposition (ALD) using the reaction of bis( N, N?�?- diisopropylacetamidinato)tin(II) [Sn(MeC(N- i Pr) 2) 2] and hydrogen sulfide (H 2S) at low temperatures (100 to 200 ??C). The direct optical band gap of SnS is around 1.3 eV and strong optical absorption ($\alpha$\>10 4cm - 1 ) is observed throughout the visible and near-infrared spectral regions. The films are p-type semiconductors with carrier concentration on the order of 10 16cm -3 and hole mobility 0.82-15.3 cm 2 V -1 s -1 in the plane of the films. The electrical properties are anisotropic, with three times higher mobility in the direction through the film, compared to the in-plane direction. ?? 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

By simultaneous sputtering from a CuGa and an In target in an Ar:H2S atmosphere the \{CIGS\} filmswhich can be used as absorber layers for thin film solar cellscan be grown in a single step without any post-treatments. By carefully analyzing the in situ experimentsseveral effects have been found which should be considered during designing the recipe for an absorber deposition process in order to achieve \{CIGS\} films with the desired stoichiometry and good crystallinity.

More details: Photoluminescence measurements on manganese indium sulphide thin films were carried out and the temperature dependence of the Pl emission band was studied. A Gaussian shaped Pl band centered at 535\&\#xa0;nm was observed at 10\&\#xa0;K. A study on the variation of InCl3 concentration in spray solution over the Pl energy band position and shape suggests that varying InCl3 concentration in the solution or by changing the In3+ composition in the film during growth does not affect Pl maxima position on energy axis whereas a reduction in the Pl peak intensity was noticed with decreasing InCl3 solution concentration. Based on the luminescence data donor level height in the manganese indium sulphide energy gap was estimated and found to be around 20\&\#xa0;meV; that again on reduction in InCl3 concentration in solution found to decreases marginally.

More details: Manganese indium sulphide (MnInxS4) thin films within x range 2.0???x???1.0 were deposited by a simple chemical spray pyrolysis using an aqueous solution of MnCl2, InCl3 and (NH2)2CS in 1:2:4 molar ratio. X-ray diffraction on these films revealed the formation of cubic MnIn2S4 along with the secondary phases MnS2, In2S3, and InS. It has been observed that the concentration of InCl3 in solution affects the manganese indium sulphide film properties causing [Mn] deficiency on its reduction in the spray solution. As evidenced by X-ray diffraction studies InCl3, concentration in the spray solution affects the occurrence of free secondary phases of manganese sulphide and indium sulphide, leading to a wide variation in optical properties of the films. A variation in optical energy gap from 3.1 to 1.9\&\#xa0;eV for as-deposited MnInxS4 films has been observed within 2.0???x???1.0 spray solution composition. A further reduction in the optical band gap up to 0.80\&\#xa0;eV has been observed at post-deposition annealing under \{N2\} and \{H2S\} ambient atmosphere.

More details: A case is developed for considering silicon as the prime medium-term candidate for semiconductor photovoltaic cells; the argumentation is based on other materials not being abundantly available, highly toxic and or very expensive. Crystalline silicon solar cells have excellent efficiencies, however, according to data presented by the authors on material fluxes and energy consumpiton there are serious bottlenecks for this technique with respect to future large-scale applications both from an economical as well as from an ecological point of view. Thus, the authors consider thin-film silicon solar cells as the main option for large-scale energy applications in the foreseeable future. Thin-film silicon solar cells are either polycrystalline or amorphous. The first category is gaining in interest at this moment, but major technological problems remain unresolved, e.g., growth of a highly-quality crystalline structure on foreing (low-cost) substrates, reduction of deposition temperature and increase of deposition rate. Teh second category has so far yielded only limited stable efficienies, although progress has been recently achieved in improving the stability of solar cells using stacked or tandem/triple structures. Novel approaches to further improve the stable efficiencies, such as using low-level doping profiles within the i-layer of the p-i-n solar cell, are listed. Entirely microcrystalline p-i-n solar cells that are stable and can be deposited at low temperatures (220 celsius degrees) with rates up to 1 angstrom/s by the VHF plasma deposition technique are described as further, recent contribution to thin-film silicon photovoltaic technology.

More details: Pyrochlore-related phases in the PbO?�?Ta2O5 system were reinvestigated. Three such phases are described: cubic Pb1.5Ta2O6.5 with a narrow range of composition, rhombohedral Pb22Ta18O67, and orthorhombic Pb14Ta10O39. A new pyrochlore-related structure is proposed for the orthorhombic phase. There is also a range of rhombohedral solid solution, which may be metastable only. The existence of the previously reported Pb2Ta2O7 is not confirmed.
