Application

Solid Oxide Fuel cells operating at temperatures below 800 C (also known as intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cell, IT-SOFC) are currently the topic of much research and development owing to the high degradation rates and materials costs incurred for SOFC operating at temperatures above 900 C. Thin films of electrode and electrolyte layers is one of the ways to achieve high performances in IT-SOFC.
Yttrium oxide sputtering target can be used for physical vapor deposition of thin films of yttria stabilized zirconia layers for IT-SOFC. Yttrium containing films are used as thermal barrier and protective coatings in thermoelectric devices, rare earth doped yttrium oxide films are studied for phosphor applications.

Eu(3+) and Tb(3+) codoped Y(2)O(3) submicron particles were prepared using the simple urea homogeneous precipitation method. X-ray diffraction patterns revealed the synthesized particles to have a pure cubic Y(2)O(3) structure. Field-emission scanning electron microscopy and field-emission transmission electron microscopy showed...

Highly luminescent-paramagnetic nanophosphors have a seminal role in biotechnology and biomedical research due to their potential applications in biolabeling, bioimaging, and drug delivery. Herein, the synthesis of high-quality, ultrafine, europium-doped yttrium oxide nanophosphors (Y(1.9)O(3):Eu(0.1)(3+)) using a modified sol-gel technique is...

Typical surface areas of 5 × 5 mm(2) were patterned with high-aspect-ratio micrometer- and submicrometer-sized structures of yttria-stabilized zirconia using a combination of micromolding in capillaries and sol-gel chemistry. The influence of precursor solution concentration and mold geometry on the...
