    Abstract: The Photoluminescence spectra at low temperature of the a-plane oriented ZnO grown on r-plane (011-2) sapphire substrates by plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy, showed experimentally three types of excitons A, B and C. In the reflectivity spectra, authors used a program based on the theory of the spatial resonance dispersion Hopfield model to f... Show More

    Abstract: This paper reports the photo-catalytic activity and stability of Lignocellulose/TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) was evaluated through using the decomposition of methylene blue (MB) as a testing model reaction under visible light irradiation (λmax > 420nm). The modified (NPs) (pH = 6.94 - 6.97) photocatalyst material was dried for 24 hours at the temperatu... Show More
