Transition metals have vacant d orbitals, so they are basically called catalyst. The metal surface adsorbed the reagent and the substrate and reagent are bound between them by a clamp called d orbitals. The vacant d-orbitals behaves similar like energy gap, hence transition metals have different colours. 1.2 Properties of transition metal oxide There are many types of distortions occurring in the ideal perovskite structure due to the flexibility inherent inside the perovskite structure. Resulting the tilting of the octahedra.
Etching high aspect ratio structures with plasmas offers a unique challenge; maintaining the necessarily high degree of anisotropy without succumbing to a number of different profile defects has proven difficult. This paper will offer a review of the origins of the major profile defects observed and reported in literature thus far, as well as the strategies used to minimize their severity. The most appropriate system for etching high aspect ratios in silicon is a high density low pressure (HDLP) plasma process, where the ion density is generally at least an order of magnitude larger than the earliest reactive ion etching systems. HDLP systems also offer the additional feature of being able to control ion density and ion energy independently by varying the source and bias powers, respectively. This ability means that the ion flux can be significantly more anisotropic than in the older RIE systems.
Advances are being made in the control of the composition and softness of surfaces, and the improvement of films.

Owing to their fundamental wave-like nature, electrons can tunnel quantum unthinkingly between two closely in line nanostructures, and if a current is applied amongst two nanostructures which aligns the discrete dynamism levels in the DOS, reverberating tunnelling arises, which briefly rises the tunnelling current.

At the opposite, if the indistinguishable particles cannot occupy the same configuration, they will obey the Fermi-Dirac statistics, called fermion. Photon is one of the most famous type of boson particle, while electron is one of the fermions. From the large scale engineering development point of view, the open quantum systems interact with fermionic field are of highly important developments. Solid state semiconductor can be fabricated to form quantum dots in a size of few nanometers to store single electron.
When a salt of transition metal ions (i.e. Co2+, Ni2+, or Mn2+ chloride or nitrate), used to be mixed with the cadmium (Cd2+) precursor, then applying the pyrolysis technique at high temperature, the crystals of semiconductor QDs (i.e. CdSe QDs) make a rejection process or adsorption for these foreign ions forming small nano-clusters on their surface and they behave as surface traps on the pure semiconductor NCs (Figure 2), Thus, it will be more complicated in their studies especially the magnetic measurements. This is attributed to one of the most important phenomena, which known as “Self-Purification”. Self-purification is an intrinsic thermodynamic property of NCs; any heat treatment increases the diffusion of the impurities, intrinsic structural defects and dislocations and easily pushes them to the nearby surface.
INTRODUCTION Over the past decade, the study on metal oxide nanostructure materials have attracted much attention because metal oxides are considered to be the most fascinating functional materials and have been widely utilized in various technological applications. For examples they are used as gas sensors, bio-sensors, nanoelectronics, nanogenerators, electrochromic devices, light-emitting diodes, field emitters, supercapacitors and photo-detector. Nanomaterials have mechanical, chemical, thermal, electrical, and optical properties different from those of their bulk counterparts due to the enhanced surface-volume ratio and possible quantum confinement effects(Dulce N. Castillo, 2012). The large surface-to-volume ratio of semiconducting metal oxide nanostructures and the congruence of the carrier screening length with their lateral dimensions make them highly sensitive and efficient transducers of surface chemical processes into electrical signals (A. Kolmakov, 2005). Since nanomaterials offer advantage in large surface to volume ratio, meaning they can provide a much larger surface area than metal oxide thin films, which make them more sensitive for gas sensing.

In theory, carbon nanotubes are also able to conduct heat nearly as well as diamond or sapphire, and because of their miniaturized dimensions, the CNTFET should switch reliably using much less power than a silicon-based device. This is important as the microminiaturization of our devices. We are looking forward to more breakthroughs in CNT technology.
MECHANISMS OF FEMTOSECOND LASER INSCRIPTION IN TRANSPARENT MATERIALS Laser-induced breakdown in optically transparent materials has been studied for decades since the 1960s . Although laser-induced breakdown and damage in transparent materials are well researched subjects, the mechanism that leads to the refractive index changes is not completely understood. For most pulsed lasers, the avalanche-breakdown mechanism is believed to be the dominant damage mechanism . The nature of this mechanism is that of thermal excitation, where a small number of free electrons resulting from crystal defects or nonlinear photo-ionisation are created within the optical material. These free electrons serve as seeds to a process called avalanche i... ... middle of paper ... ... critical density, a localised heating of the material will be induced by laser energy deposited in the material and eventually lead to damage of the material due to cracking or melting formation and refractive index change.

The scientists also determined that there is a very big difference in the colloidal scattering depending on what type of solution is used. The results show that nanowires suspended in glycerol are the most stable and maintain a high amount of reliability. This solution can move light in many directions depending on the field applied. However, one drawback to this application is that it takes multiple hours to achieve a significant shift in light because of the nanowires reconfiguration, in the solution.
