Study on the Effect of Humidity on Electrical Properties of Copper-Silica Aerogel

N. Yasrebi; J. Moghaddas

Volume 12, Issue 2 , April 2015, Pages 3-12

  > Copper-silica aerogel was synthesized by the sol-gel method and was heated at 400, 500 and 600°C for 3 h in the air. The gained materials were named as sample (a), (b) and (c) respectively. Then all samples were characterized by FE-SEM, EDX and FTIR spectroscopy. For resistance measurements ...  Read More
