In situ TiN-reinforced CoCr2FeNiTi0.5 high-entropy alloy composite coating fabricated by laser cladding

The fcc structural CoCr2FeNiTi0.5 high-entropy alloy (HEA) composite coating with TiN particles reinforced was acquired by laser cladding on the commercial 904L stainless steels. The results show that phase structure is mainly composed of fcc …


Microstructures and properties of Nb–Si-based alloys with B addition

The Nb–16Si–18Ti–xB (at%, similarly hereinafter, x = 0, 1, 2, 3) alloys were prepared by arc melting in a water-cooled copper crucible. The influences of B addition on their microstructures and properties were based on the data of X-ray …


Synthesis and fluorescence properties of CdTe:Eu3+ nanocrystals and core–shell SiO2-coated CdTe:Eu3+ nanospheres

Eu3+ doped-CdTe (CdTe:Eu3+) nanocrystals were prepared via a facile hydrothermal method, and Eu3+ was successfully incorporated into the crystal lattice of CdTe and measured by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy …


Design and properties of calcium copper titanate/poly(dimethyl siloxane) dielectric elastomer composites

The high phase content of inorganic dielectric fillings will give a strong electric driving force and hard matrix. That is a contradiction in enhancing the electro-deformation of dielectric elastomers (DEs). Therefore, in this paper, by focusing …


Construction of TiO2/silane nanofilm on AZ31 magnesium alloy for controlled degradability and enhanced biocompatibility

A TiO2 nanofilm was prepared on the surface of AZ31 magnesium alloy with controllable thickness through atomic layer deposition (ALD) technique, which can adjust the corrosion behaviors of AZ31 Mg alloy. Compared with the untreated Mg alloys …
