    The catalytic activity of cerium dioxide can be modified by deposition of alkaline earth oxide layers or nanoparticles or by substitutional doping of metal cations at the Ce site in ceria. In order to understand the effect ...
  • Nolan, Michael; Legesse, Merid; Fagas, Giorgos (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2012-09)
    In this paper we present the results of empirical potential and density functional theory (DFT) studies of models of interfaces between amorphous silicon (a-Si) or hydrogenated amorphous Si (a-Si:H) and crystalline Si ...

    A number of NiO clusters have been formed on TiO2 (anatase/rutile = 4/1 w/w, P-25, Degussa) in a highly dispersed state (NiO/TiO2) by the chemisorption-calcination cycle technique. The NiO/TiO2 causes high visible-light ...
  • Iwaszuk, Anna; Mulheran, Paul A.; Nolan, Michael (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-01)
    Titanium dioxide is an important photocatalytic material with much activity in modifying it to achieve visible light absorption. Recently, studies targeting the modification of TiO2 with metal oxide nano clusters have ...
