OUR RESEARCH

Structural and magnetic properties and DFT analysis of ZnO:(Al,Er) nanoparticles

Authors: Bououdina M., Azzaza S., Ghomri R., Shaikh M.N., Dai J.H., Song Y., Song W., Cai W., Ghers M.
The structural, optical and electrical properties of un-doped and (Al,Er) co-doped zinc oxide (ZnO) powders synthesized by hydrothermal method were investigated. The obtained samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy-dispersive spectroscopy and magnetic measurements. XRD results reveal that the incorporation of Al and Er in [...]

High sensitivity extended gate effect transistor based on V2O5 nanorods

Authors: Abd-Alghafour N.M., Ahmed N.M., Hassan Z., Almessiere M.A., Bououdina M., Al-Hardan N.H.
The sensing characteristics of extended gate field effect transistor (EGFET) as pH sensor based on V2O5 nanorods (NRs) was fabricated for the first time. The as-deposited V2O5 NRs onto glass substrate by using spray pyrolysis method have a diameter of 140–160 nm and a length of 300–500 nm. The V2O5 NRs based [...]
