    Pr at Gd or Ba site in GdBa2Cu3O7: Appearance of superconductivity

    , Article Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics ; Volume 68, Issue 10 , 2003 ; 10980121 (ISSN) Mohammadizadeh, R ; Akhavan, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Gd(Ba2-xPrx)Cu3O7+δ single phase polycrystalline samples with 0.0 < − x < − 1.0 were investigated for their structural and electronic properties. Due to the solubility limit, the 123 structure forms in the 0.0 < − x < −0.50 range; for x > −0.6, a decomposition of the perovskite-type phases occurs. For x=0.2, there is an orthorhombic-tetragonal phase transition, concurrent with a metal-insulator transition, which is evident in the normal state resistivity. For xc=0.35, the superconductor-insulator transition occurs. An unusual hump has been observed on the resistivity vs temperature curve of the samples for particular values of Pr doping. Based on the Rietveld refinement of the x-ray...

    , Article Fluid Phase Equilibria ; Vol. 374, issue , July , 2014 , p. 48-62 ; ISSN: 03783812 Safari, H ; Shokrollahi, A ; Jamialahmadi, M ; Ghazanfari, M. H ; Bahadori, A ; Zendehboudi, S ; Sharif University of Technology
    Deposition of barium sulfate (or BaSO4) has already been recognized as a devastating problem facing process industries and oilfield operations, mainly owing to its low solubility in aqueous solutions. Predicting and also preventing the overall damage caused by BaSO4 precipitation requires a profound knowledge of its solubility under different thermodynamic conditions. The main aim of this study is to develop a solubility prediction model based on a hybrid of least squares support vector nachines (LSSVM) and coupled simulated annealing (CSA) aiming to predict the solubility of barium sulfate over wide ranges of temperature, pressure and ionic compositions. Results indicate that predictions of...

    M-type Ce–Co substituted barium hexaferrite nanoparticles were synthesized by sol–gel auto-combustion route. The general formula of ferrites was Ba1−xCexFe12−xCoxO19 in which the x was considered to be: x = 0, 0.1, 0.2, and 0.3. The formed phases in the samples were characterized by using X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Mössbauer spectroscopy and vibrating sample magnetometer. The results indicated that an increase in substitutional ion amount caused to decrease vibration frequencies of Fe–O band in the tetrahedral site due to the substitution of heavier Co2+ ion for Fe3+ ion in the tetrahedral site. Moreover, some of Ce3+ ions was transformed to Ce4+ and...

Finally the magnetic behavior was monitored with VSM. DSC studies showed that pure barium hexaferrite phase was formed from maghemite... 

    Synthesis and characterization of YBaCu2O5-δ compound

    , Article Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications ; Volume 548 , 15 May , 2018 , Pages 112-115 ; 09214534 (ISSN) Ehsandoust, A ; Sandoghchi, M ; Mokhtari, P ; Akhavan, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Elsevier B.V  2018
    YBaCu2O5 compound as one of the possible microstructures of Y3Ba5Cu8O19 has been synthesized. The X-ray diffraction analysis of this compound indicates that its formation is accompanied with the formation of YBa2Cu3O7-δ. The observed superconductivity around ∼92 K supports this. So, it seems that YBa2Cu3O7-δ is responsible for the observed superconductivity in YBaCu2O5, and this phase is not an independent superconducting phase. Consequently, the overall effect of the YBaCu2O5 formation during the Y3Ba5Cu8O19 fabrication process could be a reduction in Tc. © 2018 Elsevier B.V

    Springer  2020
    An investigation has been carried out on the effects of praseodymium doping in Sm3−xPrxBa5Cu8O19 for different values of x. Results indicate that the transition temperature reduces almost linearly with x. Based on the Abrikosov–Gor’kov pair-breaking theory, it has been concluded that the exchange interaction constant is large (Jex = 110 meV) in the Sm3Ba5Cu8O19 compound. In addition, it seems that the hybridization of Pr4f states with O2p–Cu3d states has an important role in the depression of transition temperature of Sm3−xPrxBa5Cu8O19 for the Pr content < 10%. However, for the higher values of Pr, the two observed plateaus at the transition temperatures of ~ 60 K and ~ 17 K, respectively,...

    The perovskite oxide BaTiO3, doped with Ge oxides oxidized methane to C2 coupled hydrocarbons. The ultraviolet-visible spectra of pure barium titanate and Ge doped BaTi(1-x)GexO3(x=0.05,0.1) were compared. The pure barium titanate exhibited an ultraviolet absorption effect. The addition of GeO2 resulted in an increase in absorption of wavelength. Therefore, small amount of Ge decreased band gap energy. Oxygen is inserted by nucleophilic attack which may be considered as an acid-base process. For promoted BaTiO3catalysts with stable cation valance, electron donation ability of lattice oxygen is parallels to its ability of adsorb and active oxygen, and decrease the chance of deep oxidation of...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Soroush, Soheil (Author) ; Nemati, Ali (Supervisor) ; Simchi, Abdolreza (Supervisor)
    In the present work, Barium Titanate nanoparticles were synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method at 180oC for 4 hours and their sintering behavior was studied. The characterization tests illustrated that the obtained powder was BaTiO3 single phase with excess Ti content from stoichiometric composition. The average particle size of about 50 nm and a narrow particle size distribution was noticed. SEM investigations showed that the samples sintered at temperatures less than 1250oC had plate-like grains. This behavior resulted from twin plates existed in the grains and facetted grain boundaries. At the temperatures more than 1250oC, the grains became polygonal due to the formation of trace...

    PTCR thermistors are thermally sensitive resistors that show positive temperature coefficient of resistance and are good candidates for applications as self-regulating heating elements and thermal control switches. For these applications, the current-time behavior of thermistors is of primary importance. In this work, heat transfer models were developed to simulate the electrothermal behavior of BaTiO3 thermistors. Also, using simulated temperature profiles, thermal stress distributions of the specimen were calculated to predict crack formation at different conditions. At high voltages, the effects of thermal conductivity and heat transfer coefficient were negligible. At low voltages, the...

    Barium strontium titanate (BST) was prepared via the simple sol-gel method by using tetrabutyl ti-tanate, ethanol, citric acid and ethylene glycol as starting materials. Thermogravimetry and differential thermal analysis were used to examine the behaviour of the xerogel. The particle size of BST was approximately 21 nm, as calculated by the X-ray diffraction and confirmed by transition electron microscopy for the calcination temperature of 750 °C. It was found that the particles of BST powders calcined at 750 °C were smaller and more homogeneous and uniform than those obtained at 800 °C
