Quantum size effect-induced heat capacity of metal nanoparticles at low temperatures was predicted 79 years ago to be exponential. This, however, has not been reported until date. In defiance, we demonstrate here observation of exponentially decaying heat capacity, below 45. Read More

We have investigated the core issue of atomic lattices in monodispersed Ni nanoparticles (NPs) of sizes 3.8 nm to 10.1 nm using detailed analysis of X-ray diffraction, synchrotron radiation X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and magnetization data. Read More

Structural, resistivity, thermoelectric power and magneto-transport properties of Cu doped Bi2Te3 topological insulators have been investigated. The occurrence of the tuning of charge carriers from n type to p type by Cu doping at Te sites of Bi2Te3 is observed both from Hall effect and thermoelectric power measurements. Carrier mobility decreases with the doping of Cu which provides evidence of the movement of Fermi level from bulk conduction band to the bulk valence band. Read More

Compacted pellets of nanocrystalline nickel (NC-Ni) of average particle size ranging from 18 to 33 nm were prepared using a variety of surfactants. They were characterized well and were studied on the influence of the surfactants on the electrical resistivity and thermopower in the temperature range 5 to 300 K. It was found that the type of the surfactant used dominates over the average particle size in their electrical transport and the detail transport behaviors have been discussed. Read More

This is the first report on the critical nature of nanolattice formability of different particle size (~4-10nm) of monodispersed nickel nanoparticles. They exhibit strikingly hexagonal close-packed (hcp) nanolattices without extra forces, whenever trioctylphosphine is (one of) the surfactant(s). This clearly establishes the unique role of nanolattice formability of trioctylphosphine. Read More

Temperature dependence of thermoelectric power S(T) of three differently processed Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 (Bi2212) samples, viz. as-processed melt quenched (Bi2212-MQ), 6000C N2-annealed (Bi2212-N2) and 6000C O2-annealed (Bi2212-O2) is reported here. All the samples possess single-phase character and their superconducting transition temperatures (TcR=0) are 85 K, 90 K and 72 K respectively for Bi2212-MQ, Bi2212-N2 and Bi2212-O2. Read More
