  • The Indium Scan Test

    1003 Words  | 5 Pages

    test called the Indium Scan; this test requires the use of nuclear substances being injected into the blood stream via an IV. The amount of Indium that is giving is based on the patient and what the doctor feels as appropriate. What is Indium you may ask? Indium is an element. It has a classification name of metal. Indium was named for the Indigo line of spectrum and came from the Latin word indicum. There are 23 different types of Indium isotopes however only two are natural. Indium is also found

  • The History And Characteristics Of Indium (In)

    807 Words  | 4 Pages

    Indium (In) This element was discovered by the Ferdinand Reich and Hieronymus Theodor Richter in 1863. These two scientists were looking for traces of Thallium in zinc ore samples. An indigo line in the samples spectrum was found, and no element known had this colour in them it revealed the existence of a new element which was called Indium due to the bright coloured line in its spectrum. Characteristics Atomic Mass: 114.818 Melting Point: 429.75 K (156.60 C) Boiling Point: 2345 K (2072 C) Density:

  • Indium Nitride Case Study

    919 Words  | 4 Pages

    Indium nitride (InN) is the member of III-V nitride group along with the GaN and AlN. Among these, InN has superior electronic properties such as high mobility and high drift velocity, as compared to other nitrides because of its low effective electron mass. In addition to this, InN has shown an overshoot in the saturation velocity. Because of this reason InN is considered as a future high-speed electronic device material. However, InN has been a less studied material as compared to other nitrides

  • Graphene: The Wonder Material

    1691 Words  | 7 Pages

    October 22, 2004 wasn’t a particularly special day for Andre Geim and his colleague Kostyz Novoselov. Previously, a student had tried to separate graphite into ten or even one hundred layers but only succeeded in obtaining a specimen of one thousand layers. Then Geim had the brilliant idea of using Scotch tape to peel off individual layers of graphite. Geim and Kostyz took pieces of tape and manually separated the graphite until one layer remained (Lucibella 2). After hours of work and several pieces

  • Essay On Supercapacitors

    621 Words  | 3 Pages

    In recent years, electrochemical supercapacitors (ECs) have been extensively studied as attractive energy storage devices. They have potential applications in portable electronics and electric vehicles because of their high power energy densities and long cyclic life [8, 101, 102]. Based on the nature of the charge-storage mechanism and active materials, electrochemical capacitors can be classified into two types: electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) and redox supercapacitors (pseudocapacitors)

  • The Effect Of Alloying Elements On Alloy Sacrificial Anode

    853 Words  | 4 Pages

    The effect of alloying elements on aluminium alloy sacrificial anode was also studied and it was found that the alloying element which have large potential difference from aluminium resulted in alloys with potentials more anodic than unalloyed aluminium. Mercury, the potential of which differs most greatly from that of aluminium, caused a maximum effect on aluminium potential. Effect of some alloying elements on aluminium alloy as sacrificial anode is given below: 1. Magnesium: The solubility of

  • The Magneto Hydrodynamic (MHD) Dynamic: What Is The Dynamic?

    1546 Words  | 7 Pages

    The Magneto HydroDynamic (MHD) generator converts heat energy and kinetic energy into electricity. MHD generators are electric generators which operate at high temperatures without wearing of components of the system unlike conventional generators. MHD was developed to increase overall efficiency, as an auxiliary cycle in Thermal and nuclear power stations. Fig.1 shows the basic block diagram of MHD power generation [1]. The classical plasma MHD system is an open cycle process and the fluid pass

  • The Structure and Applications of Dye Sensitized Solar Cell

    1811 Words  | 8 Pages

    “We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using nature's inexhaustible sources of energy — sun, wind and tide... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that” (Thomas Alva Edison). Currently, in our world today, there are over 1.2 billion people, about 20% of the total population, are still without access to electricity. According to the World
