Advances in Materials Science Research. Volume 42 first evaluates the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of poly(1,1-difluoroethylene) or poly(vinylidene fluoride) and some of its copolymers and composites.

The quantitative study of the p-type doping of a-Si:H thin films carried out by combining in situ Kelvin probe and UV-visible spectroscopic ellipsometry measurements is explored.

The authors go on to discuss how graphene-based materials have shown great usefulness because they can be chemically combined with other materials to obtain new interesting materials with new chemical and physical properties

In the subsequent study, electron transport properties of proposed field-effect transistors constructed by some low-dimensional nanomaterials are reported by the density functional theory simulation combined with a non-equilibrium Green function method.

Following this, the methods used to synthesize structured catalytic supports by coating in spherical geometry are reviewed in conjunction with other coating methods on spheres with applications in photocatalysis.

Additionally, a power storage system using spherical silicon solar cells, a maximum power point tracking charge controller, a lithium-ion battery and a direct current-alternating current inverter using silicon carbide devices is constructed and studied.

The electrochemical behaviour of 316L stainless steel in the hypochlorite sodium bleaching process is also studied and findings are described.
In the concluding study, on the basis of the the strain-rate cycling tests associated with the ultrasonic oscillation, p p was obtained as the effective stress due to the impurities which lie on the mobile dislocation.
