The high precision isotope ratio analysis of ultramicro strontium samples can be realized by using silicotungstic acid as the emitter

Strontium isotope ratio (87Sr/86Sr) has been widely used in earth science, astrochemistry, environmental chemistry, food origin tracing, archaeology and other fields. Since the 1960s, the Thermoelectric ionization mass spectrometer (TIMS) has been regarded as the benchmark technique for ratio analysis of 87Sr/86Sr with excellent accuracy and high sensitivity. Excellent sensitivity is the prerequisite for the analysis of high precision 87Sr/86Sr ratio in ultramicro samples. The key to improve the sensitivity lies in the selection of suitable emitters to improve [...]

The process control of the crystallization of ammonium dimolybdate and the process conditions for the formation of single crystal

Ammonium molybdate is a typical homopolybdate with many types, mainly including ammonium dimolybdate, ammonium tetramolybdate, ammonium heptamolybdate, ammonium ocmolybdate, ammonium dodecolybdate and ammonium tetramolybdate. Ammonium molybdate used in the industry is mostly the mixture of the above ammonium molybdate in different proportions, which is easy to be hygroscopic and agglomerated, and not easy to disperse. Ammonium molybdate is the main raw material for preparation of molybdenum-based products, especially molybdenum powder. Its phase purity and chemical and physical properties have [...]

Preparation of tungsten chloride

This procedure is exactly the same as the preparation of tungsten tetrachloride, but the product cannot contact with air due to its strong hygroscopicity, so it should be fully dried and preserved. Under this reaction condition, there is no protective atmosphere, so it is difficult to ensure that tungsten pentachloride is not decomposed. During refining, the product is put into a hard glass tube and placed in the air of vacuum or nitrogen and carbon dioxide. The glass tube [...]

Preparation and application of titanium nitride

The chemical properties of nitrogen element are very stable, but under some special conditions, it can form nitrides with many elements. Among these nitrides, the transition metal nitrides — Titanium nitride (TiN) has become the focus of research at home and abroad. Titanium nitride is a small wet structural material with attractive gold color, high melting point, high hardness, good chemical stability, and metal, and has high conductivity and superconductivity. It can be used in high temperature structural materials [...]

Vanadium dioxide — a revolutionary material for the future electronics industry

Because of its unique properties, vanadium dioxide has become an ideal choice to replace silicon for a new generation of low-power electronic devices. Swiss researchers recently demonstrated the application of vanadium dioxide to aerospace communications (600677) systems to achieve programmable rf electronics, highlighting the oxide’s potential. Vanadium dioxide has phase transition characteristics and forms that can be converted between an insulator and a metal, acting as an insulator at room temperature and as a metal conductor above 68 degrees Celsius.

Comparison of ni-cr and tantalum nitride film resistors in communication applications

Prior to the widespread acceptance of surface mounted sheet resistors in the 1980s and 1990s, metallized hole mounted molded resistance was usually used in precision applications. Through hole mounted discrete resistors have always been made by depositing thin film resistive materials on cylindrical ceramics. The leads are connected to both ends of the ceramic and the columnar resistance devices are molded or coated to produce a fully sealed product as shown in figure 1. The sheet resistance shown in [...]

Main applications of tantalum silicide

Metal silicides are similar to metals in electrical conductivity, high temperature performance, oxidation resistance and compatibility with the production process of silicon integrated circuits. Transition metal silicides can be used for low-resistance gate and interwire, schottky gate and resistance contact. Tantalum silicide preparation method includes: the combustion synthesis (combustionsynthesis, CS) or self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, arc melting method, etc. Combustion synthesis or self-propagating high temperature synthesis is a method for the synthesis of intermetallic compounds by the exothermic reaction of [...]
