CdS doped TiO2 nanotube composite was fabricated by chemical bath deposition, and was characterized by the structural, spectral and photoelectrochemical properties. The results of the structural and spectral properties showed that CdS particles were successfully deposited onto the surface of TiO2 nanotube. It is demonstrated that CdS doped TiO2 nanotube composite improved the light harvesting ability. Power conversion efficiency of about 0.32% was observed. This value is about 2.9 times higher than that of pure TiO2 nanotube. The CdS doped TiO2 nanotube composite possesses relatively higher photocatalytic activity and photodegradation efficiency than that of pure TiO2 nanotube under UV light irradiation, and the degradation efficiency of methyl orange was about 42% at UV intensity of 32 W.
Explosion Proof Lights and Hot Environments
Fixtures that are exposed to high ambient temperatures are prone to failure and malfunction. In industrial facilities with high lighting consumption rates, this is can be a complex issue to address, especially in hazardous locations where explosive dust and vapors are present. As a solution, establishments may apply explosion proof metal halide and incandescent fixtures with external ballasts. Electrical Ballasts Electrical ballasts are designed to monitor and limit the amount of current in a circuit. The two...
Class I, Division 1 Industrial Lights for THC Extraction Labs
The cannabis industry is growing at a rapid rate. According to a report published by Marijuana Business Daily, the emerging sector is forecasted to overtake craft beer and organic food products. With legalization gaining momentum, it could reach $44 billion by 2020. The study also pointed out that for every dollar spent on weed, the local economy gains three dollars. A recent trend in marijuana production involves cannabis extracts in the form of oils, shatter and wax. The concentrated forms of the plant offer...
