Ngo, Robert SporkenAbstractThe transfer of CVD-grown graphene sheets onto arbitrary substrates is important for the development of practical applications. Unfortunately, designing a low cost and highly efficient graphene transfer technique to achieve defect-free graphene sheets with low contact resistance onto various substrates still remains a challenge. In this paper, a CVD grown monolayer graphene sheet was directly transferred on SiO2/Si substrate. We found that a combination of flo...

The particles have been systematically characterized by X-ray diffraction technique, field emission scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectrometer, fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and UV-visible spectra. It is found that a wide range of Na...

SilvaAbstractThe effect of copper nanoparticles (CuNP) on the enhancement of the infrared and upconversion emissions intensities in the Er3+/Yb3+/Ce3+ co-doped transparent tellurite glasses under 980 nm laser diode excitation were investigated. The roles of Yb3+ and Ce3+ as sensitizers are also discussed. The nanoparticles-containing tellurite glasses structures were characterized by Differential Scanning Calorimet...
