* Titanium dioxide (Ti[O.sub.2]) nanopowder supplied by Aldrich;
The resulting cathodes use catalysts never tested before because the method to make small cathode samples did not exist, but also because, until recently, no one knew how to make the metallic nanopowders uniformly and in quantities large enough to test.
QuantumSphere, now a leading manufacturer of metallic nanopowders for material applications, including high-quality nickel nanoparticles, found a way to adapt gas phase condensation, one of the original nanoparticle technologies, into a continuous, fully automated manufacturing process.
The intensity of the cracks on the YSZ coatings decreased with the increase of the deposition cycles both with and without the addition of the nanopowder. The Cr evaporation decreased by 51% for a single YSZ layer coating (B146) sample, with no nanopowder YSZ added.
The method of silver doped hydroxyapatite nanopowder generation was presented in detail in [29].
The researchers believe that the proposed nanopowder has higher quality than the foreign-made similar samples in the market, and it can be produced with lower cost.
