Catalytic graphitization in nanocast carbon monoliths by iron, cobalt and nickel nanoparticles

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Charitha J. Thambiliyagodage, Steven Ulrich, P.T. Araujo, Martin G. BakkerHierarchically porous carbon monoliths containing metal (Fe, Co, Ni) nanoparticles were synthesized in a one-pot synthesis through a nanocasting technique using silica (SiO2) as the template. The macropore...

Far-UV photoluminescence of boron-doped diamond: Cross interaction between boron and diamond

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Hsiao-Chi Lu, Jen-Iu Lo, Yu-Chain Peng, Sheng-Lung Chou, Bing-Ming Cheng, Wei-Hsiu HungPhotoluminescence (PL) spectra of boron-doped diamonds (BDD) were recorded with far-ultraviolet excitation. Upon 175 nm excitation, emissions of two types were observed; a broad emission...

Selective release of less defective graphene structure during sliding of incompletely reduced graphene oxide coating on steel

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Shusheng Xu, Yuzhen Liu, Mingyu Gao, Kyeong-Hee Kang, Chang-Lae Kim, Dae-Eun KimRecently, graphene has been gaining a lot of attention as a coating material that can be effectively utilized in reducing friction and wear of sliding components. In order to fully exploit...

Scalable production of large single-layered graphenes by microwave exfoliation ‘in deionized water’

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Hye-Rim Kim, Sung-Hyun Lee, Kun-Hong LeeSingle-layered graphenes with large sizes were produced by inserting solvent molecules between the graphene layers in graphite intercalation compounds (GICs) followed by direct microwave exfoliation ‘in a solvent’ to prevent re-aggregation....

Compressive deformation mechanism of honeycomb-like graphene aerogels

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Jun–Jun Shang, Qing-Sheng Yang, Xia Liu, Chao WangGraphene aerogels (GAs) are a kind of advanced graphene assemblies, which are quite elastic and can easily restore their original form after compression. The macroscale compression behavior of the GAs is the result of microstructural...

Synthesis of hollow fullerene-like molybdenum disulfide/reduced graphene oxide nanocomposites with excellent lubricating properties

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Jian Wu, Liwen Mu, Jiahua Zhu, Xin Feng, Xiaohua Lu, Roland Larsson, Yijun ShiIn this paper, bubble-on-plate structure is realized on hollow IF-MoS2/reduced graphene oxide (HIF-MoS2/RGO) nanocomposites. HIF-MoS2 nanocages templated with the generated ammonia (NH3) are...

Terahertz generation from reduced graphene oxide

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Huan Wang, Yixuan Zhou, Zehan Yao, Lipeng Zhu, Yuanyuan Huang, Xinlong Xu, Zhaoyu RenWe firstly investigate the generation of terahertz (THz) wave from reduced graphene oxide (RGO) illuminated with femtosecond near-infrared laser pulse. Experiment results show that the...

Enhancement and modulation of photonic spin Hall effect by defect modes in photonic crystal with graphene

Publication date: August 2018Source:Carbon, Volume 134 Author(s): Jie Li, Tingting Tang, Li Luo, Jianquan YaoPhotonic spin Hall effect (PSHE) holds great potential applications for manipulating photon spins. However, the efficient control of PSHE in a particular optical structure is still difficult to realize. In this paper, we report enhanced...
