Nano-scale magnetite (Fe3O4) powders were prepared from metallic iron and distilled water by wet milling technique. Magnetite powders so obtained were added to Bi1.6Pb0.4Sr2Ca2Oy superconductor by 0.00 0.05, 0.10 and 0.30 wt (x), with solid state reaction method. The structural and superconducting properties were studied by x-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, magnetization and magnetic susceptibility measurements. Single-phase magnetite samples with average particle size about 25 nm were obtained with the wet milling technique. Nanoscale magnetite additions up to 0.10 wt % enhance the critical current density (J(c)) of the superconductor preserving the fraction of the high T, phase Bi-2223. Magnetite additions above 0.10 wt % decrease the critical parameters (T-c, J(c)) and the fraction of the high T-c phase.

Characterization of magnetite thin films produced by sol-gel processing
Eken, Ali Erdem; Özenbaş, Ahmet Macit; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2008)
Magnetite (Fe3O4) thin films were prepared by a sol-gel process in which, a solution of iron (III) nitrate dissolved in ethylene glycol was applied on glass substrates by spin coating. Xerogel films were obtained by drying the coated films at 110 °C. The films were sintered between 300 °C and 450 °C in order to observe the phases existing in the films at different temperatures. Coating solution showed Newtonian behaviour and viscosity was found as 0.0215 Pa.s. DTA analysis showed that, sintering temperature...
Preparation of boron-zirconium co-doped photocatalytic titanium dioxide powder
Tokmakçı, Tolga; Öztürk, Abdullah; Jongee, Park; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2013)
A titanium dioxide powder co-doped with boron and zirconium was prepared by mechanical ball milling. Photocatalytic performance of the powder was evaluated by degradation of methylene blue (MB) solution under UV illumination. XRD patterns were refined by Rietveld analysis method to obtain accurate lattice parameters and position of the atoms in the crystal structure of TiO2. XRD analysis indicated that the B and/or Zr doped TiO2 powders composed of anatase and did not exhibit any additional phase. Rietveld ...
Preparation of lead zirconate titanate (Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3) by homogeneous precipitation and calcination
Oren, EE; Tas, AC (1998-05-06)
Aqueous solutions of lead chloride (PbCl2), zirconium oxychloride (ZrOCl2.8H(2)O) and titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4), in appropriate volumetric amounts, were used as the starting materials in the synthesis of phase-pure Pb(Zr0.52Ti0.48)O-3 powders. Preparation of the phase-pure PZT powders were achieved, in the presence of urea (CH4N2O), by the chemical powder synthesis route of homogeneous precipitation.
Preparation of porous Ca-10(PO4)(6)(OH)(2) and beta-Ca-3(PO4)(2) bioceramics
Engin, NO; Tas, AC (2000-07-01)
Submicrometer-sized, pure calcium hydroxyapatite (HA, (Ca-10(PO4)(6)(OH)(2))) and eta-tricalcium phosphate (beta-TCP, Ca-3(PO4)(2)) bioceramic powders, that have been synthesized via chemical precipitation techniques, were used in the preparation of aqueous slurries that contained methyl cellulose to manufacture porous (70%-95% porosity) HA or beta-TCP ceramics. The pore sizes in HA bioceramics of this study were 200-400 mu m, whereas those of beta-TCP bioceramics were 100-300 mu m. The pore morphology and ...
Characterization of iron oxide thin films prepared by sol-gel processing
Karakuscu, Aylin; Ozenbas, Macit (American Scientific Publishers, 2008-02-01)
Iron oxide thin films were prepared by spin-coating a gel solution of iron(III) nitrate dissolved in 2-methoxyethanol and acetylacetone on glass and quartz substrates. The film thickness was adjusted by changing the spinning rate of the spin coater, Annealing was carried out between 300 degrees C to 600 degrees C to investigate the phases present in the films. Viscosity of the main solution was found as 0.0035 Pa (.) s by viscosity measurement. TGA/DTA analyses showed that heat treatment should be done betw...
