Also, changing in layer orientation could be observed by SEM P5091 order images. In addition, irradiation caused altering peak intensity in FTIR spectrum. DMA results demonstrated that irradiation broaden the elastic zone. Totally, irradiation enhances
features especially in irradiated EVA18 in nitrogen. Since, according to stabilization of induced deformation and improvement of mechanical properties (that created by radiation), the irradiated samples can be used in different applications.

“The effect of sintering process on the electrical properties of CaCu3Ti4O12 (CCTO) ceramic dielectrics were investigated in this paper. It was found that grain size
is affected by sintering and the nonlinear current-voltage (I-V) property will decrease with the increased sintering time. Also, the frequency and temperature dependences of dielectric permittivity and loss in the ranges of 10(-1)-10(7) Hz and 130-270 K were studied. Two relaxation ASA-404 processes with activation energy of 0.51 eV and 0.10 eV, respectively, were found in the frequency dependence of tan delta and Cole-Cole planes, which can be interpreted in terms of insulating grain boundaries and semiconducting grains. It was suggested that grain boundary Maxwell-Wagner relaxation and ionization of oxygen vacancy V-O(++), proposed as extrinsic and intrinsic relaxations, are responsible for the dielectric behaviors of CCTO ceramics.

“A series of segmented poly(urethane-urea) polymers have been synthesized varying the hard segments content, based on the combination MK-2206 in vivo of polycaprolactone diol and aliphatic diisocyanate (Bis(4-isocyanatocyclohexyl) methane), using diamine (1,4-Butylenediamine) as the chain extender. The microstructure and properties of the material highly depend on the hard segments content (from 14
to 40%). These PUUs with hard segment content above 23% have elastomeric behaviors that allow high recoverable deformation. The chemical structure and hydrogen bonding interactions were studied using FTIR and atomic force microscopy, which revealed phase separation that was also confirmed by DSC, dynamic-mechanical, and dielectric spectroscopy.

“We investigate the effect of the arsenic source (As-2 and As-4) on the optical properties of InGaAs quantum rods (QRs) grown by molecular beam epitaxy. Owing to differences in the In and Ga diffusion lengths under As-2 and As-4 fluxes, photoluminescence (PL) peak energies of the QR samples depend strongly on the As source when similar growth conditions are used. A marked improvement in the PL intensities from QR samples grown using As-4 is achieved.
