Crystal structures

Crystal Structures

  • Materials can be divided into Amorphous, Single Crystalline, Poly Crystalline according to their crystal structure.

  • Bulk Material composed a repeat pattern of unit cell and thus their properties are determined by their crystal structures

Ball-stick model: Ball – Atom, Stick -- Bonding

Reconstruction

Absorption

Surface is the place where atoms terminating bulk, i.e. the termination of bulk crystalline structure (Repeating pattern)

Surface Energy is coming from unbonded electrons


What is the surface interface

What is the surface / interface

  • Atoms at surface / Interface has unbonded electrons which will cause extra energy compared with atoms in bulk

  • This extra energy per area is defined as surface / interface energy f

  • The total energy associated with surface / interface E = f * S

  • This energy becomes significant in nano material system

What happen in real material system

What happen in real material system?

  • Surface reconfiguration will impact about 2-3 atomic layers in depth. (or 6-8A)

  • In general, atoms in those regions are different than their cousins in bulk and therefore included as surface.

  • For Si particle, assume surface region are 2 atomic layers or roughly 5A in depth => Another reason that surface properties are more important for nano materials as most of atoms are at surface


Surface energy in bcc and fcc structure

Surface Energy in BCC and FCC Structure

  • Surface energy is determined by how many bonds we have to break in order to create a fresh surface (Cleavage) and thus depending upon crystalline planes?

  • Which crystalline plane shall have lowest surface energy? Why?

Closed packed plane has most atoms in plane and thus the out plane bonding is less and weak.

Adsorption and desorption

Adsorption and Desorption

  • The adsorption of molecules on to a surface is a necessary prerequisite to any surface mediated chemical process.

  • In general, surface reaction can be broken down into the following steps :

    • Transferring of reactants to the active surface

    • Adsorption of one or more reactants onto the surface

    • Surface reaction

    • Desorption of products from the surface

    • Transferring of products away from the surface

  • Absorption and Desorption are equally important.


  • Physical and chemical absorption

    Physical and Chemical Absorption

    • The basis of distinction is the nature of the bonding between the molecule and the surface. With ...

    • Physical Adsorption : the only bonding is by weak Van der Waals - type forces. There is no significant redistribution of electron density in either the molecule or at the substrate surface.

    • Chemisorption : a chemical bond, involving substantial rearrangement of electron density, is formed between the adsorbate and substrate. The nature of this bond may lie anywhere between the extremes of virtually complete ionic or complete covalent character.


    Typical characteristics of adsorption processes

    Typical Characteristics of Adsorption Processes

    Adsorbate geometry

    Adsorbate Geometry

    NH3 -> NH2 (ads) + H (ads) -> NH (ads) + 2 H (ads) -> N (ads) + 3 H (ads)

    As the number of hydrogens bonded to the nitrogen atom is reduced, the adsorbed species will tend to move into a higher co-ordination site on the surface (thereby tending to maintain the valence of nitrogen).


    Wetting and contact angle

    Wetting and Contact Angle

    • The “Young Equation” determines the “contact angle”

      • Balance of forces at the periphery of a drop on a rigid surface

    • The wetting angle,  ranges from 0 (wetting) to  (de-wetting)

    • The engineering importance of surfaces

      • Wetting -- Frying pans and car waxes, Detergents, Lubricants

      • Bonding – Glues, Solders

      • Catalysis -- Adsorption

      • Capillarity -- Tree sap and blood vessels


    Film formation spreading

    V

    L

    S

    Film Formation (Spreading)

    • Spreading: LV+SL interfaces have lower energy than SV

      • Want for painting, coating, soldering, etc.

    • To promote spreading

      • Raise SV: e.g., clean the interface

        • Flux in soldering removes oxides from surface

        • Clean the substrate interface prior to deposit thin film

      • Lower SL: e.g., include reactive species in L

        • Sn in solder forms intermetallic compounds with Cu, Ni or Au

        • Flow catalyst or reactant to form an intermediate layer and prepare for deposition

      • Lower LV: e.g., add surfactant (species that adsorbs at LV interface)

        • Flux in solder coats surface, lowers LV


    De wetting

    L

    V

    S

    De-Wetting

    • De-wetting: film of vapor preferred between S and L

      • LV+SV interfaces have lower energy than SL

      • Want for “non-stick” coatings (frying pans, car wax).

      • Passivation Layers to stop moisture.

    • To promote de-wetting

      • Lower SV: e.g., add surfactants or low- coatings to solid

        • Teflon on frying pans

      • Lower LV: e.g., add surfactant (species that adsorbs at LV interface)

      • Raise SL: e.g., remove any possible surfactants or reactive species


    Hydrophilic vs hydrophobic

    Hydrophilic vs. Hydrophobic

    • Hydrophilic (Water Loving): Materials exhibit an affinity for water The surface chemistry allows these materials to absorb water and be wetted forming a water film. Hydrophilic materials also possess a high surface tension and have the ability to form "hydrogen-bonds" with water.

    • Hydrophobic (Water hating): have little tendency to adsorb water and water tends to "bead" on their surfaces. Hydrophobic materials possess low surface tension values and lack active groups in their surface chemistry for formation of "hydrogen-bonds" with water.
