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 [...]

Monte Carlo Multi-Criteria Risk Analysis of Single Wall Carbon Nanotube Production Processes Under Uncertain Manufacturing Costs, Occupational Health Risks, and Regulatory Standards

, , , ,
Considerable uncertainty exists regarding full-scale manufacturing costs, occupational risks, and probable future regulatory standards for various single wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) manufacturing processes. Monte Carlo models have been developed to investigate these implications and compare [...]
