A new direction in solar energy

One of the most challenging aspects of an intensive three-year research project within the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment is its goal of simplicity.

Heber Sugo and Erich Kisi in the laboratory

Material engineers Dr Heber Sugo and Professor Erich Kisi have received $515,000 from the Australian Solar Institute to create a new device that converts solar energy directly into electricity.

Researchers in Europe and the United States are working on a similar concept but they are using much lower-temperature materials. "Our device will comprise materials used to power the electrical systems of spacecraft, and will reach temperatures of up to 1,500 degrees Celsius," says Sugo, the principal investigator.

"Being able to work at higher temperatures allows a more efficient conversion of heat into electricity, thereby reducing production and environmental costs. More efficient energy conversion means that smaller solar arrays can give the same energy yield.

"A device of this sort has a tendency to become complicated, so designing something for its simplicity is particularly challenging," adds Kisi. "Our device will generate electricity in a single step and has no moving parts."

The centrepiece of the project is a thermionic device, which will be attached to reflective "parabolic dishes" that concentrate solar radiation. The dish holds a number of mirrors that focus light rays onto the device. When heated, the device emits electrons and generates electricity. In its final form, the thermionic device would feed power inverters which in turn would then supply electricity to the grid.

This research differs from other projects in that it is the first to use refractory materials in the thermionic device. The short-term plan is to create a prototype that could be scaled up and commercialised to provide clean energy to households.

While the concept itself seems simple, its development is anything but. At the time of going to print, Sugo was designing a series of experiments involving various materials. "We need to make the materials because they are not currently available," he says. The researchers will have to design and manufacture an emitter and a collector, test them individually and then combine them into a working prototype.

In theory, their device will be far more efficient than current methods. "There are environmental costs in levelling tracts of land to install current solar technologies," says Kisi. "Our model will greatly reduce the amount of space needed through greater conversion efficiency and a single-step process that requires no additional infrastructure."

Sugo and Kisi are part of the Newcastle Institute for Energy and Resources (NIER).

Career Summary

Biography

I completed a Bachelor of Metallurgy (Hons 1) from the University of Newcastle in 1984 in conjunction with six years in industry as a trainee Metallurgist. I then completed a PhD in Metallurgy under an AINSE studentship which saw me spend 3 months each year conducting experiments at the HIFAR nuclear reactor at ANSTO in Sydney. I went on to take up a National Research Fellowship also based at ANSTO (1988-90) studying phase transitions and synthesis methods in zirconia ceramics. There followed a senior research fellowship at Griffith University in Queensland (1990-93) working on metals for hydrogen storage which has recently become very topical. In mid 1993 I returned to Newcastle to take up a position as a lecturer, senior lecturer (1997), Associate Professor (2001) and Professor (2007 - ).

I have researach experience ranging from process and physical Metallurgy (BHP Newcastle and Dept Metallurgy U of Ncle) through metal hydrides and intermetallic compounds to advanced ceramics (Zirconia, piezoelectrics and MAX phases). I have used such diverse research tools as thermal analysis, electron microscopy and diffraction, and scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopy. My particular expertise is in the application of in-situ neutron and X-ray diffraction experiments to study materials during simulated service or during their synthesis. This has included metals and advanced ceramics under large stresses, extremes of temperature (4-2600K), in hydrogen atmospheres or electric field. My work has received over 1300 citations, has H-index 21 and is cited an average of more than 16 times per paper in the international journal literature including self-citations (ISI Web of Science) .

I am a former Assistant Dean of Postgraduate Studies in the Faculty of Engineering and have served on the Universitys Research Higher Degrees Committee. I am currently the Student Academic Conduct Officer for the School of Engineering. In addition, I have contributed to policy development, management and review of the Universitys central research facilities (Electron Microscope Centre and X-ray Centre) for more than 10 years. My professional associations include Fellow - Institute of Physics (London), Vice-President ANBUG and ordinary member - Australian Institute of Physics and Society of Crystallography in Australia. I lead a research team currently comprising 1 Senior Fellow, 1 technical officer, 6 PhD students and on average 5 honours students. The group has an average annual research budget of $300,000 as well as a very high success rate in gaining peer reviewed access to major international neutron scattering facilities (ILL France, ISIS UK and OPAL Australia).

Research Expertise
My primary research field is the link between the crystal structures of materials and their physical, mechanical and electrical properties. I use advanced neutron and X-ray diffraction techniques to probe the details of crystal structure and microstructure in existing and emerging engineering materials. Experiments are conducted at the world's leading neutron sources (ILL in France and ISIS in the UK) as well as the national neutron source OPAL being commissioned at ANSTO in Sydney. My particular thrust has been to study materials in the state in which they are used in engineering practice. This includes studying highly strained and multi-phase materials in environments that either simulate real service conditions or during their actual synthesis from raw materials. This has included working at temperatures in the range -269 to 2400 Celsius, pressures up to 2.3 GPa, electric field up to 100 kV/cm and a range of high pressure gasses. These in-situ experiments give unprecedented insight into the workings of Engineering materials as well as their formation and inter-conversion. For example, my group and I have conducted the only neutron diffraction experiments in the world on combustion synthesis - the rapid conversion of raw materials into engineering materials using the chemical reaction energy as the primary heat source. These experiments on the most rapidly reacting system ever studied with neutron diffraction, have revealed a complex reaction mechanism not observable in any other way. The work has led to more than 75 refereed journal papers, several plenary lectures and over 40 contributed conference papers and presentations. My work has received over 1100 citations (H-index 18) in the international journal literature. A Materials Science background combined with extensive experience of advanced neutron diffraction techniques, has allowed me to make a contribution to knowledge in several classes of material. I have primarily worked in the following fields: i) Zirconia ceramics (1 edited book, 16 journal and 5 refereed conference papers) ii) Metal hydrides (18 journal and 1 refereed conference paper) iii) Neutron diffraction studies of materials (1 co-authored book due early 2007, 1 review paper, 59 journal papers including those above & below, and 7 refereed conference papers) iv) Ferroelectric and piezoelectric ceramics (9 journal papers) v) MAX phases (e.g. Ti3SiC2) synthesis (16 journal papers, 2 refereed conference papers, 5 invited and plenary lectures)

Teaching Expertise
Courses that I have taught include Materials Selection, Physical Metallurgy, Research Topics in Physics, Fabrication of Metals, Design III, Materials Science and Engineering 1, Materials Science and Engineering 2, Final Year Project. As such, I have experience in teaching across a wide spectrum of Materials Science and Materials Engineering at a range of levels as well as considerable experience in the teaching of skills related to the conduct of a major project. I also have considerable experience in research training having supervised numerous PhD's to completion and have had many Research Fellows in my care.

Administrative Expertise
I am the Student Academic Conduct Officer for the School of Engineering. In addition, I have served as Assistant Dean - Postgraduate Studies (1998-2001) as well as being a member of the Research Higher Degrees Committee during the same period. I also serve on Committees advising the DVC - Research on the university's Research Support Units. I am a former council member and Treasurer of the Australian Neutron Beam Users Group (ANBUG).

Collaborations
I have strong collaborations with Prof Oliver Kirstein of the European Spallation (neutron) Source in Sweden concerning the elastic properties of certain complex carbides which bridge the properties of metals and ceramics as well as investigation of the stress distributions in granular materials under compaction within dies. This latter project with colleagues Dr Chris Wensrich (UoN) and Dr Vladimir Luzin of ANSTO, has been awarded 3-year ARC Discovery Project funding as well as a 3-year Program Grant from ANSTO for 20 days per annum on the neutron strain scanning diffractometer Kowari. Other collaborations include other scientists at the Bragg institute and Institute of Materials at ANSTO, the ISIS spallation neutron facility in the UK, the Institute Laue-Langevin in France and the Earth Sciences Department at Cambridge University (UK).

A simple methodology for identifying possible higher order Mn+1AXn phases (n=2) from the chemical characteristics of known phases was developed. The method was used to identify two potential M3AC2 phases Ti3GaC2 and Ti3InC2. After verifying that the n=1 MAX phases in these systems could be synthesised in bulk using a simple pressureless reactive sintering process, the new phases were synthesised using the same method. DFT calculations were used to test the thermodynamic stability of the new phases against the known competing phases within the same ternary systems. Both were found to be stable although Ti3InC2 only marginally so. Crystal structure refinements and comparison to other MAX phases revealed a linear increase in the c-axis length as a function of the atomic radius of the A element.

The radiation damage response of Ti3SiC2 heated from 120°C to 850°C during 700 keV Si+ irradiation has been investigated. The samples were analyzed using glancing incidence X-ray diffraction, Rutherford backscattering spectrometry, Raman spectroscopy, and scanning electron microscopy. For the sample at 120°C, irradiation results in a buildup of a heterogeneous surface and the formation of TiCx. Irradiation at 200°C results in maximum microstrain, a maximum in the c lattice parameter, and the appearance of a ß phase in addition to the normal a phase of Ti3SiC2. A minimum in the observed damage level near the surface was seen for irradiation at a sample temperature of 300°C but the damaged phase increases at higher temperatures. Differences between the present work and a previous C irradiation study have been ascribed to the enhanced Si defect transport at low temperatures.

The potential of novel tungsten-barium titanate composites as thermionic emitters is explored. Composites ranging from 20% to 80% tungsten by mass were prepared by sintering in an Ar-H2 atmosphere. XRD and SEM studies indicate four major micro-constituents; W, BaTiO3, Ba4(Ti,Fe)12O27 and BaWO4. Richardson work functions (fR) and Richardson constants (AR) were determined using a Schottky diode arrangement at temperatures ranging from 1223 to 1473 K. Work functions ranged from 2.67 eV to 3.32 eV with a shallow minimum at 40% by mass W and were relatively constant (~2.7-2.8 eV) in the range 30-70% by mass W. The decrease in work function was accompanied by a strong decrease in AR from 39.3 A cm-2 K-2 to 0.02 A cm-2 K-2 over the range 20-70% by mass W. The reduction in both fR and AR was associated with the major conversion of the surface to BaWO4 and Ba4Ti12O27 during the activation treatment before emission testing.

This study presents investigations of the microstructure, morphology and emission properties of the promising thermionic material (LaxBa1-x)B6. The material was synthesised by solid-state reaction without post-synthesis purifications. Powder X-ray diffraction revealed that samples prepared at a temperature =1500 °C had formed a significant proportion of solid solution (above 54 mass%). Subsequent sintering at 1950 °C caused the formation of a mixture of three solid solutions with the dominant phase being (La0.31Ba0.69)B6 ~85% (by mass). The Richardson work function and emission constant for this boride mixture were found to be 1.03 eV and 8.44 × 10-6 A cm K-2 respectively.

The color of Cu-Zn brasses range from the red of copper through bright yellow to grey-silver as the Zn content increases. Here we examine the mechanism by which these color changes occur. The optical properties of this set of alloys has been calculated using density functional theory (DFT) and compared to experimental spectroscopy measurements. The optical response of the low Zn content a-brasses is shown to have a distinctly different origin to that in the higher content ß', ¿ and e-brasses. The response of ß'-brass is unique in that it is strongly influenced by an overdamped plasmon excitation and this alloy will also have a strong surface plasmon response.

The effective thermal conductivity of Cu-Fe and Sn-Al miscibility gap alloys over a range of temperatures and volume fractions was determined using the Lattice Monte Carlo method. The Cu-Fe system was found to have an effective conductivity predictable by the Maxwell-Eucken model. The Sn-Al system was not consistent with any empirical model analysed. The microstructures of physical samples were approximated using a random growth algorithm calibrated to electron or optical microscope images. Charts of effective conductivity against temperature for a number of volume fractions are presented for the two alloys. It was determined that the Cu-Fe alloy would benefit from an interstice type microstructure and the Sn-Al would be more efficient with a hard spheres type microstructure. More general conclusions are drawn about the efficiency of the two observed microstructures. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The unique and unusual state of matter represented by granular materials has historically made it very difficult to develop models of stress distributions and was previously not able to be explored experimentally in the required detail. This paper reports the application of the neutron diffraction strain scanning method, originally developed for residual stress measurements within engineering components, to the problem of the stress distribution in granular Fe under a consolidating pressure. Strains were measured in axial, radial, circumferential and an oblique direction using the neutron strain scanning diffractometer KOWARI at ANSTO (Sydney). The full stress tensor as a function of position was able to be extracted for both straight walled, converging and stepped dies. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

The full triaxial stress state within individual particles in a monodisperse spherical granular assembly has been measured. This was made possible by neutron imaging and computed tomography combined with neutron diffraction strain measurement techniques and associated stress reconstruction. The assembly in question consists of 549 precision steel ball bearings under an applied axial load of 85 MPa in a cylindrical die. Clear evidence of force chains was observed in terms of both the shape of the probability distribution function for normal stresses and the network formed by highly loaded particles. An extensive analysis of the source and magnitude of uncertainty in these measurements is also presented.

Observed differences between measured and calculated elastic constants for Ti3SiC2 are investigated using Density Functional Theory and Inelastic Neutron Scattering. The agreement between the calculated lattice dynamics and the dynamics measured by inelastic neutron scattering is considered good except at energies below ~20 meV where discrepancies suggest anharmonic potentials. This suggestion is confirmed by Density Functional Theory - Molecular Dynamics simulation which shows multiple site occupancy of the Si atoms within the basal plane at finite temperature and produces a calculated inelastic spectrum in better agreement with the measured spectrum in the low-energy region. The highly anharmonic potential energy surface of the Si atoms offers an explanation for the failure of elastic constants, calculated based on the harmonic approximation, to agree with initial experimental measurements. © 2013 The American Ceramic Society.

Model validation remains a serious problem within the field of computational granular materials research. In all cases the rigor of the validation process is entirely dependent on the quality and depth of the experimental data that forms the point of comparison. Neutron and X-ray diffraction methods offer the only quantitative non-contact method for determining the spatially resolved triaxial stress field within granular materials under load. Measurements such as this can provide an unprecedented level of detail that will be invaluable in validating many models. In this paper the theoretical foundation underpinning diffraction-based strain measurements, their conversion to local stress in the particles and ultimately into the bulk stress field is developed. Effects such as elastic anisotropy within the particles of the granular material, particle plasticity and locally inhomogeneous stress distribution are shown to not offer any obstacles to the method and a detailed treatment of the calculation of the bulk stresses from the particle stresses is given. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

A persistent problem in the synthesis of complex materials from three or more constituents is the retention of very stable intermediate phases with properties grossly different from the target phase. In our recently developed two-stage synthesis methodology, a binary precursor is prepared and then directly converted into the product phase, thereby avoiding intermediate phase formation. Crystallographic similarities between the precursor and product phases are manipulated such that the major structural elements remain chemically intact. Ordered structural vacancies are used to facilitate rapid and highly selective diffusion of the third element into the precursor. Since no crystallographic reconstruction is required, no extraneous phases can form. The method has been tested on the solid state synthesis of Ti 3AlC 2, Ti 3SiC 2 and Ti 3AlC 2, Ti 3SiC 2, producing synthesis temperature reductions of 400 - 600°C. It is postulated that similar crystal structural relationships in layered oxides, nitrides and intermetallic compounds will allow an extension to many other systems. © Institute of Materials Engineering Australasia Ltd.

Thermionic energy conversion is an ideal way of converting concentrated solar energy into electricity. Developing suitable emitter/collector materials, with optimum work functions whilst being able to withstand elevated temperatures under high vacuum conditions, is a major challenge. Rare-earth hexaborides have great potential as thermionic emitters due to their superior chemical stability and low work function values, lanthanum hexaboride (f ~2.60eV) and cerium hexaboride (f ~2.60eV). This study forms part of a series of investigations aimed at developing rare-earth hexaboride cathode materials. Methods used to synthesise, characterise and fabricate these materials are discussed together with electron emission results. © 2014 Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences.

The current paper addresses the thermal characterisation of Miscibility Gap Alloys (MGAs). These novel materials combine two immiscible metallic phases with different melting temperatures. The fusible phase (i.e. the phase with a lower melting temperature) acts as a phase change material that stores latent heat (in addition to sensible heat) thus optimising energy storage capacity. The second phase forms an enclosure and prevents the leakage of liquid material. Due to the high inherent thermal conductivity of metals, MGAs exhibit excellent thermal conduction in comparison to traditional phase change materials such as hydrate salts or paraffin. The combination of high energy storage and fast heat transfer makes MGA uniquely suited for use as thermal capacitors in applications like space heating, concentrated power generation or temperature stabilisation of sensitive equipment. The current paper determines the thermal properties of MGAs using Lattice Monte Carlo analysis combined with micro-computed tomography imaging.

A large number of boron/boron oxide nanorods have been produced by high-energy ball milling amorphous boron powder using hardened steel balls and vial, followed by high temperature annealing. In an attempt to understand the growth mechanisms leading to such nanorods, we have examined as-milled and post-annealed boron powder, using X-ray diffraction analysis (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The latter technique reveals nanoporous structures that appear in the boron samples milled at ambient temperature. XRD analysis has revealed the synthesised samples are a combination of boron, boron oxide and iron. Boron/boron oxide nanorods approximately 50-250 nm in diameter and up to 7 µm in length with the iron catalyst at the top were obtained by annealing the milled boron samples at 1200°C for 5 hours in nitrogen gas. High-energy ball milling may produce structural changes and chemical reactions induced by mechanical energy which leads to the growth of a large variety of structures far from equilibrium, among them the nuclei for nanorod growth. Upon elevated temperature annealing, these nanoporous structures provide for the growth of the existing nuclei and thus generate the boron/boron oxide nanorods with the assistance of iron catalyst particles. © Institute of Materials Engineering Australasia Ltd.
