Morphological change from nano-cube to nano-sphere by addition of Ni to W in RF thermal plasma synthesis

, , , , , , , , ,
Pure W and W-Ni nano-particles were effectively synthesized by feeding thermo-physically favorable oxide feedstock micro-powder into argon-hydrogen thermal plasma. During the process, feedstock particle underwent a vaporization, reduction, and condensation pathway. Significant amount of nano-cube [...]
