Indium tin oxide nanoparticles as anode for light-emitting diodes

Thin films of indium tin oxide (ITO) nanoparticles have been investigated as anode materials for polymer light-emitting diodes. A luminance efficiency (0.13 cd/ A), higher than that (0.09 cd/A) obtained in a control devices fabricated on conventional commercial ITO anodes were found. The thin films were made by spin coating of a suspension followed by annealing. The ITO nartoparticle films have a stable sheet resistance of 200 ohm/sq, and an optical transmittance greater than 86% over the range of 400-1000 nm. Their textural property is also reported. These results demonstrate that ITO nanoparticle can form a high efficient reproducible anode material.

Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid and poly(p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid) and their graft copolymers with polypropylene, Part II
Cetin, S.; Tincer, T. (Wiley, 2008-04-05)
Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic) acid (PABA), p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid (PMBA), and their graft coproducts of PP were studied by differential scanning calorimetry, direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry, and TG/IR system, combined thermogravimetric analyzer, and FTIR spectrometer. The homopolymers and corresponding grafts were found to be stable in nitrogen atmosphere but started to decompose under atmospheric conditions when heated above 230 degrees C. PABA and PA...
Flexible organic photovoltaics from zinc oxide nanowires grown on transparent and conducting single walled carbon nanotube thin films
Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Kuo, Daniel; Parekh, Bhavin; Amaratunga, Gehan; Chhowalla, Manish (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2008-01-01)
The fabrication of flexible organic photovoltaics (OPVs) which utilize transparent and conducting single walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) thin films as current collecting electrodes on plastic substrates in zinc oxide nanowire (ZnO NW)/poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) bulk heterojunction photovoltaic devices is reported. The bulk heterojunctions for exciton dissociation are created by directly growing ZnO nanowires from solution on the SWNT electrodes and spin coating the P3HT polymer. A maximum OPV power convers...
Thermal and dynamic mechanical properties of microwave and heat-cured poly(methyl methacrylate) used as dental base material
Muhtarogullari, IY; Dogan, A; Muhtarogullari, M; Usanmaz, Ali (Wiley, 1999-12-13)
In this study, the particle size distribution, molecular weight, thermal analysis (TGA) differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermogravimetric analysis, and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) of poly(methyl methacrylate) used as dental base material were investigated. The commercial raw material used were prepared for microwave curing, and they were cured by microwave and conventional heat methods. The average particle size of the powder studied (103.1 mu m) were much larger than that of the commercia...
Poly(ethylene terephthalate)/Carbon Nanotube Composites Prepared With Chemically Treated Carbon Nanotubes
Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2011-07-01)
Surfaces of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNT) were functionalized by treatment with strong acid mixture (purification) followed by modification with sodium dodecyl sulfate, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), and diglycidyl ether of Bisphenol A (DGEBA). Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)-based conductive polymer composites were prepared by using these CNT by means of melt mixing with a twin screw extruder. Amount of carboxylic acid groups on the CNT surface increased after acid treatment but decreased with surfac...
Chain-extended bismaleimides .1. A study of chain-extended bismaleimides as matrix elements in carbon fiber composites
Yerlikaya, Z; Erinc, NK; Oktem, Z; Bayramlı, Erdal (Wiley, 1996-01-18)
A series of chain-extended bismaleimide resins as matrix elements in carbon fibers were cured and characterized in terms of their thermal and thermomechanical properties. The cured resins were stable up to 430 degrees C and EDABMI/MDA has the highest T-g value and the lowest loss modulus value. To understand the compatibility and the degree of adhesion between the resin and the fiber, their surface properties were determined in terms of the surface energy component and single-fiber pull-out tests. The surfa...
