  • Publication number: 20210178381
    Abstract: A method for preparing catalyst particles that includes providing an average atomic number Zavr for a catalyst starting material, providing an ion beam having an ion beam current and selecting an ion beam dose X expressed in ions/g, based on the weight of the catalyst starting material, where X follows the following equations: (7/Zavr)×1018 ions/g<X<(7/Zavr)×6×1019 ions/g, implanting the catalyst starting material with an ion beam dose X primarily comprising the selected ions, where the ratio of the current of the ion beam current to the cross-section area of the ion beam, measured at the point of contact with the catalyst starting material is at least 1.2 ?A/mm2, thereby obtaining a catalyst. The resulting catalyst particles are useful in NOx, CO, and/or HC emission reduction devices, fuel cells, or catalysts in chemical reactions.

  • Publication number: 20210129115
    Abstract: A method for preparing catalyst particles that includes providing a catalyst starting material, an ion beam, and an electrostatic charge reduction device selected from a source of UV light, a source of X-rays, an electron beam, and an electrically grounded catalytic starting material carrier. The method further includes implanting the catalyst starting material with an ion beam dose primarily made of monocharged or monocharged and multicharged ions with an energy of the monocharged ions in the ion beam from at least 10 keV to at most 100 keV thereby obtaining a catalyst. The obtained catalyst particles particles are useful in NOx, CO, and/or HC emission reduction devices, fuel cells, or catalysts in chemical reactions.

  • Publication number: 20210091270
    Abstract: A light-emitting device includes a substrate that is at least partially transparent to optical radiation and has a first index of refraction. A diode region is disposed on a first surface of the substrate and is configured to emit light responsive to a voltage applied thereto. An encapsulation layer may be disposed on a second surface of the substrate and has a second index of refraction. An antireflective layer stack is formed within the substrate directly below the second surface of the substrate. The antireflective layer has an amorphous non-porous first layer, a porous second layer, an optional amorphous non porous third layer, and a fourth layer with modified crystallinity. The encapsulation layer may also be omitted and the substrate's second surface may separate the substrate, which has an antireflective layer stack within the substrate, directly below the second substrate surface, from air.
