Synthesis of Titanium Nanoparticles in Liquid Xenon by a High-Voltage Discharge
- 14 Downloads
The formation of titanium nanoparticles (NPs) in a high-voltage electric discharge between titanium electrodes in liquid xenon at a temperature of –105°C has been observed. It has been shown that these titanium nanoparticles have a spherical shape with an average diameter of <50 nm and they possess high chemical activity. This makes it possible when a relative mass concentration of NP reaches ~10–6 to efficiently purify xenon from electronegative impurities for its use as a working medium for a new generation of high-efficiency nuclear radiation detectors.
