In this study, ultrathin (4-40 nm) Cu-layer-based transparent heaters prepared on glass substrates were investigated for cost-effective applications. The Cu heaters were embedded between ZnO layers serving as anti-reflection and anti-corrosion layers. The Cu layer thicknesses varied in the range of 4-40 nm, and the corresponding structural, electrical, optical and..... More

517 Enhanced Photoelectrochemical Water-Splitting through Application of Layer by Layer (LBL) and Hydrothermal (HT) Methods in TiO2 and α-Fe2O3 Hierarchical Structures

DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.7.517

Improving solar energy conversion efficiency and reducing energy loss have become critical issues in recent decades. Photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting provides an ideal method for solar energy harvesting and is a key factor in decreasing the use of fossil fuels. Thus, it is extremely important to identify cost-effective, highly active,..... More

523 Electrochemical Performance of the Ni-Fe Based Metal-Support Solid Oxide Fuel Cell with Ba-Sr-Co-Fe-O and La-Sr-Mn-O Cathodes

DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.7.523

Unlike conventional solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) where ceramic materials have been used as a support, in this study a new SOFC structure with a metal support and a contact layer between the support and anode is suggested. A mixture of Ni-Fe alloy and zirconia ceramics as the contact layer..... More

531 Enhancement of thermoelectric power factor by modulation doping of bulk polycrystalline SnS / thin film PEDOT:PSS bilayer
벌크 다결정 SnS / PEDOT:PSS 박막 이중층에서의 변조 도핑을 통한 열전 역률 강화

DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.7.531

Modulation doping occurs in a heterojunction where a charge carrier-rich material transfers charge to a carrier-deficient material. The modulation-doped material is intentionally selected to have higher charge carrier mobility than the modulation dopant material, so that the overall electrical conductivity can be boosted. Although this modulation doping strategy has proven..... More
