ABSTRACT: The preparation and analysis of morphological, structural, optical, vibrational and compositional properties of tin monosulfide (SnS) thin films deposited on glass substrate by chemical spray pyrolysis is reported. The growth conditions were evaluated to reduce the presence of residual phases different to the SnS orthorhombic phase. X-ray diffraction spectra revealed the poly-crystalline nature of the SnS films with orthorhombic structure and a preferential grain orientation along the (111) direction. At high substrate temperature (450ºC), a crystalline phase corresponding to the Sn2S3 phase was observed. Raman spectroscopy confirmed the dominance of the SnS phase and the presence of an additional Sn2S3 phase. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images reveal that..........

ABSTRACT: The Cadmium Selenide (CdSe) nanowire thin films were grown on FTO substrates by chemical bath deposition (CBD) at 70 °C and annealed in an air atmosphere at a different temperature. Corn-like nanowire structure was observed when the CdSe/FTO nanowire thin films were annealed at 573, 673 and 773 K. It was determined by scanning electron microscope (SEM) that the diameters of the CdSe/FTO nanowires and corn-like nanowires were around 20–40 nm. X-ray diffraction (XRD) results showed that these films had a mixed phase of cubic and hexagonal. It was observed.........

ABSTRACT: The Gravitational constant G of the universal law of gravitation by Isaac Newton, also used by Einstein in his general relativity, is discovered to composed from angular velocity coefficients forming an odd formula, in which the square of orbital velocity of a planet is multiplied by its radial distance, the product is divided by the mass of the sun; when the constant G in the gravity formula is substituted by these parameters, the formula is transformed into Centripetal Force (𝐹𝐶) formula, thus the formula for the gravitation force in essence represent a slightly distorted version of the Centripetal Force (𝐹𝐶), the development of an alternative theory to replace the current one is an important process that would lead one day to a better understanding of the physical world and a theory explaining the force governing stars and orbiting planets..

Title : Standard Model and Quantum Field Theory versus Wu's Pairs and Yangon and Yangon Theory

ABSTRACT: Standard Model is a group of subatomic particles derived from a mathematical model based on quantum field theory and Yang Mills Theory. In contrast, Wu's Pairs, a physical model are proposed as the building blocks of all subatomic particles based on the Yangton and Yington Theory. In this paper, some critical issues of quantum field theory are discussed, such as "What are the subatomic particles made of?", "What are the symmetries of gluons?", "What are the Higgs Bosons and Higgs field?" and "What the quantum fields really are?" As a result, three innovative theories "Quantum Gravity Theory based on the gravitons of a string structure and the theory of particle radiation and contact interaction", "Quantum Fields based on the distributions of contact interactions caused by particle radiations" and "Unified field theory based on the string structures made of Wu's Pairs and Force of Creation" are proposed..

Title : Oscillators with Nonpolar Magnetic Repulsion System and its Use in Rotary Nonresonant and Resonant Kinetic Energy Harvesters

ABSTRACT: Creating an asymmetric incommensurable torque signal over one full rotor revolution can be achieved when using a two degree of freedom (2DoF) system having a rotary and a translatory DoF with accordingly nonpolar magnetic repulsion techniques, as the magnetic field is known to be none conservative. This topic generally is popular in gray literature and is scarcely covered in peer reviewed scientific publications, as it often leads to the topic of permanent magnet motors, driven only by nonlinear magnetic spring configurations on the rotor and stator system, where the conservation of energy is violated. In this paper this problem is briefly discussed, while the focus is set to model the differential equation system and mathematically explore some of its major behaviors and properties. A working example of an existent magnetic motor is presented (the famous patented Yildiz............

ABSTRACT:Some sodium-boro-phosphate glasses doped two transition metal cations (Fe, Zn) have been prepared. The effect of replacing B2O3 by P2O5 gradually from zero and up to 20 mol % in proportions of 5 mol % has been thoroughly investigated. The obtained ME spectra showed that three different iron states appeared and the obtained ME parameters of this states indicated that all Fe2+ occupy the glass network former positions while all Fe3+ occupy the glass network modifier positions. It was found that the gradual increase of P2O5 act to increase both experimental and empirical density and molar volume values while the single bond strength was found to decrease. The magnetic susceptibility values were found to increase as P2O5 was gradually increase also, which may be due to the increase of molar volume and Fe3+ cationsas well as the decrease of the single bond strength..
