• Kinetics during hydrothermal synthesis of nanosized KxNa1-xNbO3 

      Skjærvø, Susanne Linn; Wells, Kristin Høydalsvik; Van Beek, Wouter; Grande, Tor; Einarsrud, Mari-Ann (Journal article, 2018)
      Hydrothermal synthesis is an efficient method of making nanosized functional oxide materials, and it has also been used to synthesize KxNa1−xNbO3 solid solution, a promising lead-free piezoelectric material. However, the ...
    • Rationalization of hydrothermal synthesis of NaNbO3 by rapid in situ time-resolved synchrotron X-ray diffraction 

      Skjærvø, Susanne Linn; Wells, Kristin Høydalsvik; Sommer, Sanna; Vu, Tuong-Dan; Tolchard, Julian R; van Beek, Wouter; Grande, Tor; Iversen, Bo B.; Einarsrud, Mari-Ann (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In situ monitoring of the formation of crystalline phases during conventional hydrothermal synthesis is experimentally challenging. Here, we report an in situ time-resolved synchrotron X-ray diffraction study during ...
    • Thermal evolution of the crystal structure and phase transitions of KNbO3 

      Skjærvø, Susanne Linn; Wells, Kristin Høydalsvik; Blichfeld, Anders Bank; Einarsrud, Mari-Ann; Grande, Tor (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The thermal evolution of the crystal structure and phase transitions of KNbO3 were investigated by high-temperature powder X-ray diffraction and Rietveld refinement of the diffraction data. Two phase transitions from ...
