Radu-Robert PITICESCU; Thermal assessment of nanostructured inorganic coatings by differential scanning calorimetry; Advanced NanoMaterials and Technologies for Energy Sector; 2018:2(1): 188-195

Development of nanostructured coatings play a crucial role in surface engineering for energy harvesting applications. Thermal characterization methods are one of the most accessible tools to study, model and predict the process parameters required to control nanostructure development during thermal treatment of different novel multi-material coating systems. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) is often used as […]

Liviu Popa-Simil; The applications of Micro-Nano-Cer-Liq materials in nuclear power ; Advanced NanoMaterials and Technologies for Energy Sector; 2017:1(4): 160-176

Modern nuclear fuels exploit the unique features of nano-structures. With proper engineering of fuel micro-nano-structure, fission products can, in principle, be separated from the fuel in-situ, and further be separated by the transmutation products. Fuel entities which are about 10 to 30 microns in diameter can contain the fuel ions in the particles while allowing […]

Katsutoshi ONO; Concept of the Hydrogen Redox High Electric Power Generation System; Advanced NanoMaterials and Technologies for Energy Sector; 2017:1(3):150-159

The purpose of this paper is to introduce the hydrogen redox electric power (HREG) and hydrogen generation systems (HRHG). The HREG offers considerable conceptual advantage such that it functions with zero energy input, zero matter input and zero emission without violating the laws of thermodynamics. Its application ranges from the large scale central-station power generation […]

The nitrogen and fluorine co-doped carbon catalyst (C-Mela-PTFE) exhibits high performance for oxygen reduction. However, the mechanism is remained elusive. Here, we investigate the structure and oxygen chemisorption processes of C-Mela-PTFE by experimental and theoretical methods. The results show that the C-Mela-PTFE materials exhibit layered porous structure, which facilitates the diffusion of oxygen. Compare N-doped […]
