In this paper, the microstructure and wear resistance of Zr-17Nb alloy treated by high current pulsed electron beam were studied in detail. A phase change occurs after pulse treatments using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) analysis, showing β (Nb) phase and α (Zr) phase transformed by a part of β (Zr, Nb) phase. Also, narrowing and shifting of β (Zr, Nb) d...
Self‐assembly of graphene and graphene oxide nanosheets into 3D macrostructures is a powerful strategy to create multifunctional materials for sustainable environmental applications. In this Minireview, recent advances in the development of exotic graphene‐based macromolecular assemblies for heavy metal scavenging, are critically examined.
Cell adhesion is a basic requirement for anchorage-dependent cells to survive on the matrix. It is the first step in a series of cell activities, such as cell diffusion, migration, proliferation, and differentiation. In vivo, cells are surrounded by extracellular matrix (ECM), whose physical and biochemical properties and micromorphology may affect...
The purpose of this study was to examine the anti-oral microorganism effects of fluorine and/or silver ions implanted into acrylic resin (PMMA) using plasma-based ion implantation (PBII) with argon gas. The experimental PMMA specimens were implanted with F and Ag ions alone or simultaneously by the PBII method using Ar or Ar/F2 gases and Ag mesh. T...

Surface modification of metallic biomedical implants are often performed using chemical or mechanical methods in order to make them more bio-active or resistant against surface-induced phenomena such as wear, corrosion or corrosion fatigue. In the present study, one such method, known as Surface Mechanical Attrition Treatment (SMAT), has been studi...

This study focuses on characterization and enhancement of indium tin oxide (ITO) surface by using a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) technique. It is generally used to establish a compatible interface and a good charge injection from ITO surface. New generation organic semiconductor molecules such as dibenzo[a,c]phenazine-11-carboxylic acid, 4-(9H-ca...
The application of a carbon nanowall (CNW) via transfer is very demanding due to the unusual structure of vertically grown wall-shaped that easily collapses. In addition, direct growth on a device cannot obtain a precision-patterned shape because of the temperature limit of the photoresist (PR). Therefore, in this paper, we demonstrate a new CNW su...

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), a transition metal dichalcogenide material, possesses great potential in biomedical applications such as chemical/biological sensing, drug/gene delivery, bioimaging, phototherapy, and so on. In particular, monolayer MoS2 has more extensive applications because of its superior physical and chemical properties; for exampl...
In this work, the properties of silver-modified LiMn 2 O 4 cathode materials are revisited. We study the influence of calcination atmosphere on the properties of the Ag-coated LiMn 2 O 4 (Ag/LMO) and highlight the silver oxidation. The effect of the heat treatment in vacuum is compared with that in air by the characterization of the structure, spec...
