  1. 1. Pd-nanoalloys for hydrogen sensing: Multiscale modeling of thermodynamic and optical properties

    Författare :Pernilla Ekborg-Tanner; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pd-alloys; hydrogen sensing; surface segregation; nanoplasmonics; nanoalloys;

    Sammanfattning : Hydrogen sensing based on Pd nanoalloys has shown great promise in the past decades and could potentially be part of a solution that enables a safe future hydrogen economy. There are, however, remaining challenges related to, e.g., long-term stability and a need for further optimization of these systems. LÄS MER

  2. 2. There Is an Alloy at the End of the Rainbow: Structure and Optical Properties From Bulk to Nano

    Författare :Magnus Rahm; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nanoalloys; hydrides; alloy cluster expansions; thermodynamics; alloys; optical properties; dielectric functions;

    Sammanfattning : Mixing different chemical species and decreasing dimensions to the nanoscale are two powerful approaches for improving materials. In both cases new properties emerge, and structure, composition, and chemical ordering can be tuned to tailor materials for specific purposes. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Free Metal Clusters Studied by Photoelectron Spectroscopy

    Författare :Tomas Andersson; Olle Björneholm; Maxim Tchaplyguine; Paolo Piseri; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; clusters; nanoparticles; electronic structure; photoelectron spectroscopy; synchrotron radiation; surface segregation; nanoalloys; size-dependence; metallicity; plasmons; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Clusters are aggregates of a finite number of atoms or molecules. In the present work, free clusters out of metallic parent materials have been created and studied by synchrotron radiation-based photoelectron spectroscopy. The clusters have been formed and studied in a beam and the electronic structure of the clusters has been investigated. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Active sites and influence of reaction conditions on the selective catalytic reduction of NOx over the silver-alumina catalyst

    Författare :Linda Ström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; microemulsion; nanoalloys; DRIFTS; HC-SCR; indium; palladium; silver; XRD; UV-vis; alumina; NH3-TPD.; Lean NOx reduction; TEM; NH3-SCR;

    Sammanfattning : Hazardous nitrogen oxides (NOx) are challenging to remove from fuel-efficient excess-oxygen operating engines. A promising solution is selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NOx, using hydrocarbons (HC-SCR) or ammonia (NH3-SCR) as reducing agent. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Alloy Plasmonics - Fundamentals and Application in Catalysis

    Författare :Christopher Tiburski; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CO oxidation; nanoparticles; gold; heterogeneous catalysis; LSPR; nanoalloys; nanofabrication; light; dielectric function; palladium;

    Sammanfattning : Alloys have for a long time been important in the development of our society; from the bronze age, where man learned how to alloy copper with tin, to today, where many products are made of steel and aluminum alloys. Similarly, but maybe not as generally well known, also in heterogeneous catalysis alloys are explored to develop solutions to increase activity and selectivity of chemical processes. LÄS MER
