Nanocrystalline magnetite powders were synthesized by an electrocoagulation technique, in which an electric current was passed across two plate electrodes of carbon steel immersed in NaCl(aq) electrolyte, and the microstructure of the oxide powder was found to evolve in roughly three stages. The first stage involves formation and growth of severely defective colloidal crystallites. This is followed by agglomeration among the oxide crystallites to form mesoporous agglomerates containing predominantly inter-crystallite pores, and the average crystallite size was found to reach a plateau. Finally, coarsening of the crystallites within the agglomerates leads to another rapid increase in crystallite size and reduction in pore opening. The synthesized powders typically showed a saturation magnetization of ∼75 emu/g and a coercivity Hc of ∼118 Oe. A mechanism involving competition between nucleation and growth of free colloids and coarsening of the skeletal framework was proposed to explain the temporary level-off in crystallite size during the synthesis.
Mesoporous crystalline SnO2 was synthesized by using templating process with cetyltrimethylammonium bromide as the template, combined with a pretreatment process of hexamethyldisilazane vapor prior to thermal crystallization. The combined process resulted in crystalline SnO2 exhibiting large pore volumes and surface areas that cannot be achieved by either of the processes alone, or by the conventional sol-gel process. Fully crystallized SnO2 powder with a pore volume of approximately 0.2 cc/g, a surface area of 220 m2/g, and mesopores mainly of 5 nm in diameter were obtained after heat treatment at 500°C.
LiTaO3 single crystals have been implanted with 100 keV oxygen ions at room temperature with doses of 1×1014 /cm2,6xl014/cm2,1.2x1015/cm2, 6xl015/cm2, and 2xl016/cm2. Annealing temperatures ranged from 550 °C to 1075 °C. RBS-channeling and TEM were used for characterization. For partially damaged samples, complete recovery of the crystalline structure was achieved after annealing at 550 °C, which is below the Curie temperature. For totally amorphized samples, thermal annealing induced multidomain growth. These domains extend beyond the original amorphous/crystal interface deep into bulk (1 – 1.5 μm ).
