The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of different solvents in sonication process on the formation of graphene from the electrochemical exfoliation of graphite. In short, graphite rod was exfoliated by electrochemical process with ammonium sulfate as salt-electrolyte. The exfoliated powder then sonicated under two different solvents, which are Dimethylformamide (DMF) and aqueous solution to form graphene. It was found that similar structure of graphene was obtained from both types of solvent....

The main processes occurring during the migration of molecules of carbon monoxide CO and silicon monoxide SiO gases through a layer of monocrystalline silicon carbide SiC of a cubic polytype have been described by the ab initio methods. This problem arises when a single-crystal SiC layer is grown by the method of coordinated substitution of atoms due to the chemical reaction of a crystalline silicon substrate with the CO gas.

The paper presents the results of potassium-lithium-borate glass containing copper ions investigations. The glass was irradiated by 1.25 MeV gamma rays. The dose of radiation was 360 Gy. The exciting of the irradiated glass at 360 nm led to the long-wavelength photoluminescence band shift from 635 nm to 671 nm in comparison with non-irradiated glass. A new luminescence band at 685 nm also appeared for excitation wavelength 405 nm in the irradiated glass. It has...

A many-body interatomic potential was used for Nickel (Ni) crystal with facecentered cubic (FCC) lattice and Titanium (Ti) with hexagonal close-packed (HCP) lattice and Nitinol alloys within the second-moment approximation. The tight-binding model (the Cleri and Rosato potentials) was employed to carry out three dimensional molecular dynamics simulations upon application of uniaxial tension at nanoscale of studied materials, which contained various vacancy rates. We performed molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to study the yield mechanisms in...

Boris Vasilyev & Alexander Selivanov
To increase the reliability of single-crystal blade durability estimations a phenomenological model of single crystal superalloy plasticity based on the use of an “equivalent” direction and its software implementation has been developed. The relative orientation between principal stresses and single-crystal (SX) axes is considered by this direction. In order to study the effect of crystallographic orientation (CO) on the characteristics of a single-crystal material, a series of tests was carried out at various temperatures under...

Masahiro Okazaki, Yusuke Ishii & Akihiro Furube
Photocatalytic water splitting is very useful for solar energy conversion. Iron oxides are attracting a lot of interests due to absorption in the visible region. However, iron oxides have poor conductivity. As one of solutions, the photocatalytic performance may be enhanced with loaded gold nanoparticles (Au-NP) by the characteristic optical absorption and the charge trapping nature. In this study, hybrid material of maghemite (γ-Fe2O3) and Au-NP (denoted as Au-Fe2O3) was prepared and the photo-generated carrier...

V.A. Babeshko, O.V. Evdokimova, O.M. Babeshko, V.L. Shestopalov & V.S. Evdokimov
The block element method is used to study the behavior of a coated material under the assumption that the surface is exposed to a corrosive liquid medium that can destroy the coating. It is assumed that the destruction begins with the formation of vertical local cracks in the coating, which then grow and lead to the exposure of the unprotected surface. Assuming the possibility of modeling a liquid layer by shallow water equations, the block...

The search for technological options for obtaining a solid assembly with small values of deformations determines the need to use a combined thermal effect on the zone of connection of extended elements made of carbon steel. Prediction of residual stress values occurring in the heat-affected zone of an assembly is difficult because of the influence of a significant number of factors: heat removal conditions, volume and material properties, etc. To calculate the residual stresses in...

А.А. Vikarchuk, N.N. Gryzunova & S.S. Manokhin
For the first time, copper particles in the form of truncated micron-sized icosahedrons were experimentally obtained by electrodeposition, their morphology and internal structure were investigated. It is shown that fullerene-like copper microparticles grow from non-crystalline spherical nanoparticles and are transformed during electrocrystallization into perfect icosahedrons, which have a more stable shape and structure. The disclination models for the conversion of nanoparticles into icosahedral microparticles are developed and described.
