Influence of the inlet gas velocity components on the survival of the vertex of gas in the plasma torch

AbstractThe vortex gas injection into plasma torch is considered as a method for reducing electrodes erosion. In order to investigate the effects of vortex gas injection on plasma structure, as well as the effect of gas viscosity on the rate of rotation, a three-dimensional nonequilibrium and time-dependent non-transferred DC plasma torch model has been simulated.

Comparative study of dust acoustic solitons in two-temperature ion homogeneous and inhomogeneous plasmas

AbstractThe dust acoustic solitary waves are theoretically investigated in dusty plasmas for different cases of with and without density gradients. These low-frequency solitary waves are studied using appropriate Korteweg–de Vries equations obtained using relevant stretched coordinates. The soliton solutions in homogeneous plasma, weakly inhomogeneous plasma and strongly inhomogeneous plasma, are thoroughly investigated for studying the […]

A study of the corrosion of stainless steel 304L coated with a 190 nm-thick manganese layer and annealed with nitrogen flux in a 0.4-mole solution of H2SO4 at different temperatures

AbstractA method for enhancing the resistance against corrosion of stainless steel 304L coated with 190 nm-thick manganese film and annealed with nitrogen flux at constant temperature (723 K) is reported. The variable quantity in this work is the temperature of the corroding solution (293 K and 333 K). X-ray diffraction analysis was employed to investigate the crystallographical changes of […]

Inactivation by helium cold atmospheric pressure plasma for Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus

AbstractA helium cold atmospheric pressure plasma jet (HCAPPJ) driven by a commercial neon power supply was designed and utilized for inactivation bacteria. The generated reactive spices by HCAPPJ were investigated by optical emission spectroscopy. The reactive species of OH, OI, OI, N21+, N21+ and He were identified in the UV–Vis wavelength region. The reactive species […]

The texture ordering in L10-FePt–Ag nanocomposites

AbstractL10-FePt nanoparticles with different Ag percentages were prepared.

Moreover, Ag atoms laying in boundaries of […]

Effect of rapid thermal annealing on structural and optical properties of ZnS thin films fabricated by RF magnetron sputtering technique

AbstractThe ZnS thin films have been deposited by radio frequency magnetron sputtering at room temperature. Post-deposition rapid thermal annealing treatment was done for the films deposited at different powers ranging from 70 to 100 W. One peak is observed for as-deposited and annealed thin films at around 28.48° corresponding to the (111) reflection plane indicating a […]

Investigation of carbon monoxide gas adsorption on the Al2O3/Pd(NO3)2/zeolite composite film

AbstractIn this study, Al2O3/Pd(NO3)2/zeolite composite films have been fabricated by roll coating method and characterized by X-ray diffraction, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and field emission scanning electron microscopy. The gas adsorption was tested in an experimental setup by a continuous gas analyzer KIMO KIGAZ 210 at constant temperature and pressure (32 °C and 1.5 bar) and as a […]

Simulation study to find suitable dopants of CdS buffer layer for CZTS solar cell

AbstractThe performance of CZTS solar cell, a promising candidate in the field of energy production from sunlight, can be improved by optimizing the parameters of most widely used CdS buffer layer. In this work, numerical study have been done on the typical CZTS solar cell structures containing Mo thin film as back contact on glass […]

Full structure of the thermal plasma including the ion isothermal drag

AbstractIn order to study the ion temperature effect on the space-charge structure and the plasma variables on the wall, the ion thermal force has been added to the ion motion equation in the plasma fluidal model. In the eigenvalue problem of plasma, the plasma equations are numerically solved in a whole area from the plasma […]

Ripple transport and neoclassical diffusion in IR-T1 tokamak

AbstractIn tokamaks, small variations in the magnetic field create ripple. The discontinuous nature of the magnetic field coils in an axisymmetric torus conduces to additional particle trapping, and it is responsible for an additional neoclassical diffusion. Ripples also reduce the particle removal efficiency and disturb plasma confinement and cause constraints in the design of magnet […]
