    We have studied the initial stage of the growth of yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) films on natively oxidized (100) Si wafer by pulsed-laser deposition. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and high-resolution electron microscopy show that, for the first few monolayers of crystalline YSZ deposited...

    Doping CeO-SiO catalysts with Mn was found to increase H selectivity and decrease ethylene selectivity. In the presence of SiO, relatively high surface areas (~150-190 m g range) were stabilized with these coprecipitated catalysts after calcining at 500 °C for 5 h. By means of a combination...
