Luminescent sensing film based on sulfosalicylic acid modified Tb(III)-doped yttrium hydroxide nanosheets

Sulfosalicylic acid (SSA) was used as an intercalation agent and an excellent antenna to synthesize layered rare-earth hydroxide (LRH) materials and directly obtain SSA-modified terbium-doped ytterbium hydroxide nanosheets by mechanical …

High-temperature phase relations of ZrN–ZrO2–Y2O3 ternary system

Zirconium nitride (ZrN) ceramics were prepared via hot pressed sintering (HP) at 1750 °C in N2 atmosphere with ZrO2–Y2O3 as sintering additive. X-ray diffraction was applied to analyze the phase composition of the as-prepared ceramics to study the …
