Visible continuum generation in air–silica microstructure ...

We demonstrate experimentally for what is to our knowledge the first time that air–silica microstructure optical fibers can exhibit anomalous dispersion at visible wavelengths. We exploit this feature to generate an optical continuum 550 THz in width, extending from the violet to the infrared, by propagating pulses of 100-fs duration and kilowatt peak powers through a microstructure fiber ...

a preparation of 100 g of macroporous silica, the volume of which is 0.676 L, necessitates 3.60 L of EtOH and 3.60 L of TEOS and 12 L flasks. A better yield of sedimentation would obviously minimize the reaction volume and the size of the vessel required for the synthesis. Yields of sedimentation close

Impact of Pore Fluid Chemistry on Fine‐Grained Sediment ...

Segregated sedimentation occurs in the silica and mica specimens (Figures 5a and 5b), indicating grain size distributions that span two controlling factors for sedimentation. For instance, because of the competition between the gravitational forces and the drag force (Stokes's law), in DW, larger silica particles generally fall more quickly ...

Depletion restabilization of colloidal silica

Silica particles in deionized water have sufficient surface charges and screening length to be stabilized electrostatically. In the absence of electrostatic or steric repulsive barriers, silica colloids close to their isoelectric point normally flocculate in unordered clusters. Earlier rheological and sedimentation studies indicated that additions

The mean silica production rate in waters overlying diatomaceous sediments (approximately 10–12% of the surface area of the oceans) is 0.7–1.2 mol Si m −2 yr −1. That rate is only slightly higher than the global average, indicating that the silica produced in those regions is only 10–25% of the global total.

One of the most impressive examples may be the formation of opals [1,2,3,4] where the sedimentation of silica particles gradually forms iridescent mineraloids over a long period of time. Besides these great phenomena in nature, the first experimental work to study particle sedimentation was conducted by Jean Perrin [ 5 ] in 1912.

The sedimentation half-times ts of initially monodisperse dispersions of 750, 505, and 350 nm silica microspheres were measured in water, in ethanol, and in aqueous NaBr solutions of concentration cNaBr ranging from 50 to 1000 mM, where the particles may have formed clusters. In water and in ethanol, ts was about 8, 18, and 33 h for the 750, 505, and 350 nm particles, respectively. These ...
