New Ceramics Findings Reported from Anadolu University

June 3, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Investigators publish new report on Ceramics. According to news reporting originating in Eskisehir, Turkey, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Five series of pure and tin-doped CdO films have been grown on amorphous glass substrates by the successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) method. The film's structural, morphological and optical properties have been investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscope (FESEM) and UV-vis spectrophotometer."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Anadolu University, "XRD results showed that all of the films are polycrystalline cubic CdO. Doping of tin enhances the film's (111) preferred orientation and causes slight shift in the (111) Bragg angle towards higher value. From the FESEM images, it was seen that tin-doping concentration affects the shapes of the nanostructures. It was found that the tin-doping concentration modify the microstructures."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "With UV-vis analysis at the room temperature it was seen that the optical band gap and transmission properties of the films change with increasing tin concentration in the growth bath."
