Silicon is a strong anode material alternative to graphite in terms of its high energy and power capacity. On the other hand, the insertion of lithium atoms per silicon atom has some cons. The full lithiation of silicon results in a 400 % increase in volume. This drastic volume change causes diffusion-induced stress, which may lead to fragmentation, disintegration due to fractures and bonding problems of the current collectors with active materials, which lead to significant losses in capacity, and hence, poor cycle performance. Blending with elastomeric binders is one of the many approaches that has been proposed to overcome this problem of silicon based anode materials. In this study, electrodes were prepared using three commercial binder materials; polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), LA132 (polyacrylic latex) and PSBR100 (Modified Styrene-Butadiene Copolymer). LA 132 gave the best result. It yielded the highest first discharge capacity with the value of 3050 mAh.g -1 and even after 75 cycles, its capacity was around 210 mAh.g -1 . On the other hand, commercially used PVDF could stand only for three cycles.

Effect of synthetic fibers on flexural performance of normal and high performance concrete
Şengün, Emin; Alam, Burhan; Yaman, İsmail Özgür (null; 2016-09-19)
Macro synthetic fiber incorporated concretes are increasingly used for concrete applications owing to their high energy absorption capacity, toughness and impact resistance. The aim of this study is twofold; first to investigate the effects of synthetic fibers on the flexural performance and thus the energy absorption characteristics of normal and high performance concrete (HPC), and secondly to investigate the effects of specimen size. For this experimental study, eight concrete groups were designed using ...
Effect of Laser Parameters and Post-Texturing Treatments on the Optical and Electrical Properties of Laser Textured c-Si Wafers
RADFAR, Behrad; ES, FIRAT; NASSER, Hisham; AKDEMİR, Ozan; Bek, Alpan; Turan, Raşit (2018-03-21)
Surface plays a crucial role in the performance of crystalline silicon (cSi) based solar cells as it affects both electrical and optical properties. To minimize reflection from the flat surface and thus improve light trapping, the cSi wafers must be textured. For mono-cSi cells, anisotropic alkaline etchants are commonly utilized to create pyramids on the surface. However, this method is not viable for multi-crystalline silicon (mc-Si) wafers due to the presence of different and random crystallographic orie...

Field plated GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) are widely preferred amongst other GaN HEMT devices because of their ability to regulate electric field at high power densities. When operated at high power densities, GaN HEMTs suffer significantly from the concentrated heating effects in a small region called hotspot located closer to the drain edge of the gate. Although; the stabilizing effect of field plate on the electrical field distribution in HEMTs is known by researchers, its effect on tem...
Effects of different laser modified surface morphologies and post-texturing cleanings on c-Si solar cell performance
Radfar, Behrad; ES, FIRAT; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2020-01-01)
Performance of crystalline Silicon solar cells depends on numerous factors. One key factor is a surface structure which can restrict electrical and optical properties due to recombination of generated carriers and reflection of incident light. Surface texturing reduces reflection from a flat surface which increases absorption of light. Anisotropic alkaline etchants are commonly used for texturing mono-crystalline Silicon wafers which produce pyramid structures on the surface. Because of randomly oriented cr...
Effect of High-Density Nanoparticles on Recrystallization and Texture Evolution in Ferritic Alloys
Aydoğan Güngör, Eda; Carvajal-Nunez, Ursula; Vogel, Sven C.; Li, Meimei; Maloy, Stuart A. (MDPI AG, 2019-03-01)
Ferritic alloys are important for nuclear reactor applications due to their microstructural stability, corrosion resistance, and favorable mechanical properties. Nanostructured ferritic alloys having a high density of Y-Ti-O rich nano-oxides (NOs < 5 nm) are found to be extremely stable at high temperatures up to similar to 1100 degrees C. This study serves to understand the effect of a high density of nano-particles on texture evolution and recrystallization mechanisms in ferritic alloys of 14YWT (14Cr-3W-...
