The proposed concepts and methods are relevant to a wide range of applications where specifically high silicon surface to volume rates are of importance: solar cells, solar-driven generation of hydrogen, electrodes for lithium-ion batteries, precursors for production of silicon nano-particles and platforms for chemical and biological sensors.
The high surface to volume ratio of nanomaterials can result, for instance, in key differences between them and their bulk counterparts in thermo-physical properties, such as melting points and the amount of heat required for formation.
Project status:Accepted Project Funding: 240000 EURO General information: In the power generation, nuclear, chemical and petrochemical industries plants designed upon the basis of uniaxial creep data are thought to be inadequate because - of the many assumptions made in the prediction of component behaviour and hence lifetime uniaxial specimen data; - the anisotropy of materials~ properties; - design related discontinuities (eg welds, changes in section) cannot be incorporated in uniaxial tests; - differences in surface to volume ratios between uniaxial specimens and real components.
