In this work, the authors report a simple and cost-effective approach to fabricate silicon nanotubes using a combination of nanoimprint lithography and etching processes. And, the silicon nanotube anode obtained from this method shows a significantly improved electrochemical cycling performance compared to the SiNWs-based anode.
- Hydrogen Concentration in Dual-Phase (DP) and Quenched and Partitioned (Q&P) Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) under Simulated Service Conditions Compared with Cathodic Charging Conditions
Qinglong Liu, Qingjun Zhou, Jeffrey Venezuela, Mingxing Zhang and Andrej Atrens
Version of Record online: 27 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600217
Hydrogen permeation through dual-phase (DP) (illustrated) and quenched and partitioned (Q&P) advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) is measured for simulated auto service. The hydrogen concentration during corrosion in 3 wt% NaCl solution is lower than that of cathodic charging at –1.100 VHg/HgO in 0.1 M NaOH. Crevice corrosion introduces three times more hydrogen than free corrosion.
- Mechanical Characterization of BSCF, a Prospective Perovskite Material for Oxygen Separation Membrane: A Brief Review
Bablu Sikder and Abhijit Chanda
Version of Record online: 24 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600199
This paper presents a comprehensive review on the mechanical behavior of BSCF, a potential material for oxygen separation membrane. It shows a typical anomalous mechanical behavior at intermediate temperatures which is yet to be explained clearly. The paper critically evaluates all proposed models and identifies the challenges, still lying ahead.
- Influence of the Reinforcement Distribution and Interface on the Electronic Transport Properties of MWCNT-Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites
Sebastián Suarez, Nicolás Souza, Federico Lasserre and Frank Mücklich
Version of Record online: 24 JUN 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/adem.201600216
This work analyses the electrical properties of MWCNT-reinforced bulk Ni bulk composites. The authors observe a reduction in the electrical resistivity for 1 wt% CNTs, with a slight increase for higher CNT concentrations. It is concluded that the transport properties are strongly related to the interfacial coherence instead of CNT clustering, as claimed until now by other reports.
- Uniaxial Compaction-Based Manufacturing Strategy and 3D Microstructural Evaluation of Near-Net-Shaped ZrO2-Toughened Al2O3 Acetabular Socket
