FIG. 1.

XRD patterns of the (, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, 0.25, and 0.3) NC samples. The vertical lines at the bottom are the standard JCPDS data of monoclinic CuO (card No.89–5898). The arrows ↓ denotes the peaks of the miscellaneous phase .

FIG. 2.

Representative XRD refinement patterns for (, 0.1, and 0.2) samples. The circle signs (○) are the experimental XRD data and the solid lines almost at the same position of each value are the calculated profile, below which is the difference between experimental and calculated data. The vertical lines at the bottom indicate the diffraction angles of allowed Bragg reflections.
