Introduction: Transition metal oxides represent a large class of compounds with a uniquely wide range of electronic properties. Some of these properties, like the magnetism of loadstone, have been known since antiquity. Others, like high-temperature superconductivity have been discovered only recently and indeed would have been thought of being impossible 20 years ago. Transition metal oxides may be good insulators, semiconductors, metals or superconductors. Many of them display a metal-to-insulator transition (MIT) as a function of an external control parameter (usually temperature, pressure or chemical composition). The differences of electrical conductivity are also reflected by drastic changes of other physical properties related to the electronic structure. The electrical, magnetic and optical properties of transition metal oxides find a rich field of important technical applications. A classical example is the wide use of ferrites in electronic devices. Further examples of suitable technological applications include wide gap semiconductors, superconductors and thermoelectric materials, to mention just a few. Apart from these exciting electronic properties, some transition metal oxides exhibit a remarkable mechanical and high-temperature stability together with a strong resistance against corrosion, thus forming ideal coating materials. Several transition metal oxides may also serve as catalysts. It was the discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in the cuprates ...

Studying different symmetry breaking ground states of matter is perhaps the most fundamental object of modern low temperature solid state physics. These exotic ground states include superconductivity and density waves of different kinds. The physics of conventional s-wave superconductivity and the quasi-one dimensional conventional charge and spin density waves are now well known due to intense research over the past fifty years. However, since the discovery of heavy fermion superconductors in 1979, organic superconductors in 1980 and high temperature superconductors in 1986 it turned out that interestingly most of these superconductors are unconventional: their order parameters are momentum dependent. Since then exploration of the microscopic origin of this unconventional pairing mechanism has been and still is in the forefront of research. This book is dedicated to the theoretical study of unconventional ordering in the particle-hole sector, that is in density waves. Quasi-one dimensional charge and spin density wave ground states are investigated. We explore the electronic Raman response, study the instability due to phonon exchange and also impurity physics in great detail.

Among all layered TMDCs those belonging to group V particularly TaS2 and TaSe2 has been most thoroughly investigated in terms of their superconductivity and formation of CDW. These systems are very rich in the sense that each improvement in the resolution or sophistication of the probe has uncovered more subtle behaviour. Recently these materials are getting a lot of attention, since they serve as a model material for understanding the still puzzling data of other highly correlated 2D electronic systems, such as the high-Tc superconductors. They share many physical properties with the HTC cuprates, such as the layered structure and qualitatively similar resistivity and susceptibility.Different materials of TaX2 family have been mostly studied for understanding their electronic structure, superconductivity and CDW. Influence of high temperature and high pressure on the electronic as well as optical properties of these materials is still unknown, which motivated the researcher to carry out the work in this direction.

High-temperature (high-Tc) superconductivity is a fascinating field in condensed matter physics research. After more than twenty-five years of research, the origin of high-Tc superconductivity is still not clear. To understand the microscopic pairing mechanism and to explain high-Tc superconductivity are for academic and technical reasons of great interest. This book is focused on the studies of superconducting (SC) and magnetic properties in two classes of high-Tc superconductors. Namely, in the novel Fe-based compounds Eu122, BaRb122 and in the cuprate system LBCO with 1/8 doping. The combination of muon-spin rotation, nuclear magnetic resonance, magnetization, and x-ray experiments allowed to probe the properties at the microscopic and macroscopic level. As a result, the superconducting and magnetic phase diagrams with respect to charge carrier doping as well as chemical and hydrostatic pressure were obtained. The phase diagrams cover the transition temperatures, the ordered moments and the volume fractions. The obtained phase diagrams revealed that, in the systems studied, superconductivity and magnetism are competing orders.

It was once believed that magnetic ordering and superconductivity are mutually exclusive due to Meissner effect. Recent discovery of iron pnictide superconductors served well to experimentally challenge that view. Even prior to this discovery, theoretical work suggested that such "unconventional" superconducting materials should exist in which multi-component nature of the order parameter opens up possibility for exotic pairing states, and even magnetic ordering. The book in your hands recaps the theoretical findings of Dr. V. Barzykin and V.

Strong bonds form stronger materials. For this reason, the investigation on thermal degradation of materials is a significantly important area in research and development activities. The analysis of thermal stability can be used to assess the behavior of materials in the aggressive environmental conditions, which in turn provides valuable information about the service life span of the materiel. Unlike other books published so far that have focused on either the fundamentals of thermal analysis or the degradation pattern of the materials, this book is specifically on the mechanism of degradation of materials. The mechanism of rapturing of chemical bonds as a result of exposure to high-temperature environment is difficult to study and resulting mechanistic pathway hard to establish. Limited information is available on this subject in the published literatures and difficult to excavate. Chapters in this book are contributed by the experts working on thermal degradation and analysis of the wide variety of advanced and traditional materials. Each chapter discusses the material, its possible application, behavior of chemical entities when exposed to high-temperature environment and mode and the mechanistic route of its decomposition. Such information is crucial while selecting the chemical ingredients during the synthesis or development of new materials technology.

The world's ever-growing demand for power has created an urgent need for new efficient and sustainable sources of energy and electricity. Today's consumers of portable electronics also demand devices that not only deliver more power but are also environmentally friendly. Fuel cells are an important alternative energy source, with promise in military, commercial and industrial applications, for example power vehicles and portable devices. A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that directly converts the chemical energy of a fuel into electrical energy. Fuel cells represent the most efficient energy conversion technologies to-date and are an integral part in the new and renewable energy chain (e.g., solar, wind and hydropower). Fuel cells can be classified as either high-temperature or lowtemperature, depending on their operating temperature, and have different materials requirements. This book is dedicated to the study of high temperature fuel cells. In hightemperature fuel cells, the electrolyte materials are ceramic or molten carbonate, while the electrode materials are ceramic or metal (but not precious metal). High operation temperature fuel cells allow internal reforming, promote rapid kinetics with non-precious materials and offer high flexibilities in fuel choice, and are potential and viable candidate to moderate the fast increase in power requirements and to minimize the impact of the increased power consumption on the environment. 'Materials for High Temperature Fuel Cells' is part of the series on Materials for Sustainable Energy and Development edited by Prof. Max Q. Lu. The series covers advances in materials science and innovation for renewable energy, clean use of fossil energy, and greenhouse gas mitigation and associated environmental technologies.

Since their discovery in 1986, high-temperature superconductors (HTSC) are considered interesting physical systems as well as attractive candidates for a variety of technical applications. In both cases one of the key aspects to be understood is the mechanism of power dissipation, which depends primarily on vortex dynamics: the movement of magnetic flux lines in the superconductor when a transport current is applied. The present work studies vortex dynamics in experiments on two of the most prominent types of HTSC materials, YBa2Cu3O7 (YBCO) and Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+d (BSCCO), in the limit of low and high current densities. Both, the applied transport current density and the dimensionality of the materials, strongly influence the dynamic response. For the low current limit in BSCCO this thesis concentrates on the influence of oxygen stoichiometry and in YBCO on a vortex glass phase, which indicates a true superconducting state with vanishing linear resistivity. In the high current limit, for the first time, a vortex instability is shown to exist in BSCCO, apparently arising from a fluid phase, while a similar phenomenon in YBCO reveals a clear correlation of the high-dissipative instability to the low-dissipative vortex glass phase.

After completing a degree in the area of atomic physics and laser spectroscopy he began his work in solid state physics and...

Improving tolerance to heat stress is a major challenge in many crops, especially C3 crops, given the threat of recent global warming. While significant achievements have been made on understanding the molecular and physiological mechanisms to short-term exposure to high temperature, the physiological mechanisms of summer tolerance in fields, which are characterized by prolonged exposure to high temperature stress, are not still well understood. In this study, six experiments were conducted to clarify the physiological mechanisms of tolerance to high temperature stress by comparing between genotypes, populations and different species including C3 and C4 photosynthetic types. Overall, although the complexity of heat tolerance was revealed by the involvement of various mechanisms such as suppression of ROS, scavenging of toxic ROS, and leaf functions, this study definitively showed that the oxidative stress resulting from the excessive production of ROS is the main cause of damages under heat stress.

Markus Bendele The Superconducting and Magnetic Properties of the Iron-Chalcogenides

4279 руб.
This book is focused on the simplest of the iron-based high temperature superconductors, namely the binary iron chalcongenide family. Compared to the other families, it consists of a stack of FeCh layers only. It is considered an ideal modeling system for the other iron-based superconductors due to its simplicity and its similarity with their electronic structure. The electronic phase diagrams of the FeCh family contain the appearance of different ground states. Whereas the mother compounds are in general antiferromagnetically ordered, the material becomes superconducting after going through a region where superconductivity and magnetism coexist. In the framework of this book, the FeCh system was tuned solely by changing the lattice either by hydrostatic or chemical pressure and without introducing additional charge carriers. The muon spin rotation/relaxation/resonance technique in combination with ac and dc magnetization experiments is an ideal tool to investigate the superconducting and magnetic states and the interplay in a sense of competition and/or coexistence between them.

For many applications, including power generation, aerospace and the automobile industry, high temperature wear provides serious difficulties where two or more surfaces move or slide relative to one another. In aerospace, for example, demands for more powerful, efficient engines operating at ever higher temperatures, mean that conventional lubrication is no longer sufficient to prevent direct contact between metallic sliding surfaces, accelerating wear. However, one high temperature phenomenon observed to reduce metallic contact, and thus wear and friction, is the formation of 'glazes',essentially compacted oxide wear debris layers that sinter together to form wear resistant surfaces. This thesis studies the nature of wear encountered with four different combinations of Superalloys, slid together using a 'block-on-cylinder' configuration (Nimonic 80A and Incoloy MA956 as block / sample materials; Stellite 6 and Incoloy 800HT as cylinder / counterface materials) simulating car (automobile) engine 'valve-on-valve-seat' wear. Initially this study concentrates on the combined effects of sliding speed (either 0.314 m/s or 0.905 m/s, supplementing previous testing at 0.654 m/s) and temperature (between room temperature and 750°C) - by altering either or both of these variables, the nature of the wear process can be radically altered, encouraging or suppressing wear protective oxide or 'glaze' layer formation. Extensive characterisation is conducted o...

The method of CVD (chemical vapor deposition) is a versatile technique to fabricate high-quality thin films and structured surfaces in the nanometer regime from the vapor phase. Already widely used for the deposition of inorganic materials in the semiconductor industry, CVD has become the method of choice in many applications to process polymers as well. This highly scalable technique allows for synthesizing high-purity, defect-free films and for systematically tuning their chemical, mechanical and physical properties. In addition, vapor phase processing is critical for the deposition of insoluble materials including fluoropolymers, electrically conductive polymers, and highly crosslinked organic networks. Furthermore, CVD enables the coating of substrates which would otherwise dissolve or swell upon exposure to solvents. The scope of the book encompasses CVD polymerization processes which directly translate the chemical mechanisms of traditional polymer synthesis and organic synthesis in homogeneous liquids into heterogeneous processes for the modification of solid surfaces. The book is structured into four parts, complemented by an introductory overview of the diverse process strategies for CVD of polymeric materials. The first part on the fundamentals of CVD polymers is followed by a detailed coverage of the materials chemistry of CVD polymers, including the main synthesis mechanisms and the resultant classes of materials. The third part focuses on the applications of these materials such as membrane modification and device fabrication. The final part discusses the potential for scale-up and commercialization of CVD polymers.

The characteristics desired for magnetic materials from the application point of view are: high saturation magnetization, high magnetic permeability, high Curie temperature, high electric resistivity and low cost. Li-Zn ferrite is one of the most important magnetic materials due to its high magnetization and square hysteresis loop. It was found that the composition Li0.3Zn0.4Fe2.3O4 has the maximum saturation magnetization in the Li-Zn ferrite series. I aimed to improve the electric and magnetic properties of such a reference sample using different valent elements (Ca, Bi, Zr and Nb). They were already used as additives and produced different phases. In my work, I prepared Li-Zn ferrite substituted by these four elements with different concentrations by standard ceramic method. Magnetic properties were studied through measuring the magnetization, the initial permeability, Curie temperature and hysteresis loop parameters. Electric properties were studied through temperature dependence of the dc resistivity. Thermoelectric power and the conduction mechanism were discussed. Frequency dependence of the dielectric constant, dielectric loss and ac resistivity were measured and discussed.

The first comprehensive book to focus on ultra-high temperature ceramic materials in more than 20 years Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics are a family of compounds that display an unusual combination of properties, including extremely high melting temperatures (>3000°C), high hardness, and good chemical stability and strength at high temperatures. Typical UHTC materials are the carbides, nitrides, and borides of transition metals, but the Group IV compounds (Ti, Zr, Hf) plus TaC are generally considered to be the main focus of research due to the superior melting temperatures and stable high-melting temperature oxide that forms in situ. Rather than focusing on the latest scientific results, Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics: Materials for Extreme Environment Applications broadly and critically combines the historical aspects and the state-of-the-art on the processing, densification, properties, and performance of boride and carbide ceramics. In reviewing the historic studies and recent progress in the field, Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics: Materials for Extreme Environment Applications provides: Original reviews of research conducted in the 1960s and 70s Content on electronic structure, synthesis, powder processing, densification, property measurement, and characterization of boride and carbide ceramics. Emphasis on materials for hypersonic aerospace applications such as wing leading edges and propulsion components for vehicles traveling faster than Mach 5 Information on materials used in the extreme environments associated with high speed cutting tools and nuclear power generation Contributions are based on presentations by leading research groups at the conference «Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics: Materials for Extreme Environment Applications II» held May 13-19, 2012 in Hernstein, Austria. Bringing together disparate researchers from academia, government, and industry in a singular forum, the meeting cultivated didactic discussions and efforts between bench researchers, designers and engineers in assaying results in a broader context and moving the technology forward toward near- and long-term use. This book is useful for furnace manufacturers, aerospace manufacturers that may be pursuing hypersonic technology, researchers studying any aspect of boride and carbide ceramics, and practitioners of high-temperature structural ceramics.
