The aim to photo-ignite Multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) with added metal impurities (ferrocene), makers of photo-ignition process.

Abstract

The aim to photo-ignite Multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) with added metal impurities (ferrocene), makers of photo-ignition process. The realized ac powered electronic boards present different features such as variable flash brightness, pulse duration and high flash rate as function of user-adjustable potentiometers or by PC provided command signals. By using the designed PC-configurable boards in the realized experimental setup, the lighting parameters (i.e. pulse energy/power and energy density) for different Xe lamps have been measured and optimized. Varying temporal/luminous parameters of used light sources by means of realized driving boards, different pulse energy and power values were obtained, in order to fully exploit and analyze MWCNTs/ferrocene photo-induced ignition. Finally, employing these boards, the ignition of MWCNT/Ferrocene mixtures has been triggered and investigated.
