Luminescent properties of synthesized PbS nanoparticle phosphors
(University of the Free State, 2008-08)
Luminescent lead sulphide (PbS) nanoparticles embedded in an amorphous silica (SiO2) matrix were synthesized at room temperature by a sol-gel process. The prepared nanocomposite materials were crushed into powders and ...
Novel ZnO nanostructures: synthesis, growth mechanism, and applications
(University of the Free State (Qwaqwa Campus), 2014-12)
The ZnO nanostructures were successfully synthesized by chemical bath deposition method (CBD) to study the influence of parameters such as reaction temperature, time, precursor concentration and the annealing temperature ...
Synthesis and characterization of down−conversion nanophosphors
(University of the Free State, 2014-10)
Luminescent zinc aluminate (ZnAl2O4) nanoparticles, crystalline–low quartz and amorphous silica powders were incorporated with Ce3+ and Tb3+ ions. These powders were successfully synthesized by the solution combustion and ...
Material properties of semiconducting nanostructures synthesized using the chemical bath deposition method
(University of the Free State (QwaQwa Campus), 2013-11)
The recent global research interest in wide band gap semiconductors has been focused on zinc oxide (ZnO) due to its excellent and unique properties as a semiconductor material. The high electron mobility, high thermal ...
