The possible improvements in structural stability and capacity of nickel-cobalt-aluminium cathode material were investigated by synthesizing this compound with various lithium amounts (Lix (Ni0.80Co0.15Al0.05)O-2 where x = 0.90, 0.95, 1.00 and 1.05). An ultrasound-assisted co-precipitation method was performed to produce spherical, nanosized powders with a narrow size distribution which satisfies a homogeneous and dense film during calendaring. Layered Li-x(Ni0.80Co0.15Al0.05)O-2 (x = 0.90, 0.95, 1.00 and 1.05) cathode active materials were successfully synthesized with this method and chemical compositions of the powders synthesized were determined by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectroscopy. Structural characterization was carried out via X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy techniques. The electrochemical properties of the cathode materials were investigated by electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, galvanostatic charge/discharge and cyclic voltammetry methods. Among the cathode compositions in the current study, Li-1.05(Ni0.80Co0.15Al0.05)O-2 exhibited the highest capacity, 138 mAh g(-1) with 95% capacity retention upon 22 cycles.

Influence of layer on the electrical properties of Au/n-4H SiC diodes
Yigiterol, Fatih; Güllü, Hasan Hüseyin; YILDIZ, DİLBER ESRA (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018-06-01)
In this study, the effect of insulator layer on the electrical characteristics of Au/n-4H SiC diode was investigated. The current-voltage (), capacitance-voltage () and conductance-voltage () measurements were carried out at room temperature condition. Under thermionic emission model, electrical parameters as zero-bias barrier height (), ideality factor (n), interface states (), and series () and shunt () resistances were estimated from forward bias analyses. The values of n and were about 1.305 and 0.796 e...
Synthesis of a regular polymer containing pseudo-polyether cages
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2005-04-20)
A new compound consisting of 2-thienyl units linked by polyether bridge has been synthesized and its electrochemical polymerization was performed via constant potential electrolysis (CPE) in an electrolytic solution containing 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF(6)) dissolved in CH3CN. Chemical polymerization was carried out using FeCl3 as oxidizing agent. It is found that both methods gave the same polymer product without any cleavage of the polyether bridge between thiophene (Th) rings. Al...

Bhattacharya, Baidurya; Kumar, G. R. Dinesh; Agarwal, Akash; Erkoç, Şakir; Singh, Arunima; Chakraborti, Nirupam (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
Failure behavior of Zn coated Fe is simulated through molecular dynamics (MD) and the energy absorbed at the onset of failure along with the corresponding strain of the Zn lattice are computed for different levels of applied shear rate. temperature and thickness. Data-driven models are constructed by feeding the MD results to an evolutionary neural network. The outputs of these neural networks are utilized to carry out a multi-objective optimization through genetic algorithms, where the best possible tradeo...

Electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficients of (La, Ca) (Cr, Co) O3 were measured as a function of temperature. The electrical conductivity as measured in air from 100 to 1100-degrees-C increased with increasing Co and Ca content. The Seebeck coefficients were positive, indicating p-type conductivity. The substitution of Co for Cr significantly decreased the Seebeck coefficients, indicating that the substitution resulted in an increase in site occupancy, associated with the Co. The additional Ca substi...
Impact essential work of fracture toughness of ABS/polyamide-6 blends compatibilized with olefin based copolymers
Ozkoc, Guralp; Bayram, Göknur; Bayramli, Erdal (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2008-04-01)
The impact fracture toughness of acrylonitrile-styrene-butadiene/polyamide-6 (ABS/PA6) blends compatibilized with 5% by weight carbon monoxide modified ethylene-n butyl acrylate-maleic anhydride (EnBACO-MAH) or ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (EMA-GMA) copolymers were examined as a function of blend ratio by standard Charpy tests, Essential Work of Fracture (EWF) Methodology and fracture surface morphologies. The samples were first processed in twin-screw extruder and they were subsequently i...
