1. Fourier Transform Infrared Absorption Spectroscopy for Quantitative Analysis of Gas Mixtures for Homeland Security Applications
Published: 8/11/2015
Authors: Kurt D Benkstein, Wilbur Scott Hurst, Douglas C Meier, Pamela M Chu
Abstract: Chemical detectors are crucial tools for first responders during emergency-response scenarios and for continuous monitoring of public spaces for general safety. For those who depend upon chemical detectors for safety and security, ensuring that d ...

2. Forming Spherical Gold Nanoparticles From Polymorphic Nanoparticles Using a Single Laser Pulse
Published: 6/12/2014
Authors: Douglas C Meier, Richard E Cavicchi
Abstract: A method is presented for using a single laser pulse to transform polymorphic polycrystalline gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) into uniformly crystalline nanospheres. TEM analysis of the 60 nm diameter Au NP starting material and the product suspension co ...

3. Single laser pulse effects on suspended-Au-nanoparticle size distributions and morphology
Published: 4/30/2013
Authors: Richard E Cavicchi, Douglas C Meier, Cary Presser, Suvajyoti S. Guha
Abstract: Samples of suspended gold nanoparticles in the diameter range 10 nm to 100 nm were subjected to a single 7 ns pulse from a 532 nm laser to determine the effects of laser power on particle size distribution, mean size, and morphology. The experime ...

4. An Examination of Kernite (Na2B4O6(OH)2 , 3 H2O) Using X-ray and Electron Spectroscopies: Quantitative Microanalysis of a Hydrated Low-Z Mineral
Published: 4/14/2011
Authors: Douglas C Meier, Jeffrey M. Davis, Edward Paul Vicenzi
Abstract: Mineral borates, the primary industrial source of boron, are found in a large variety of compositions. One such source, kernite (Na2B4O6(OH)2 , 3 H2O), offers a panoply of challenges for traditional electron-probe microanalysis (EPMA) ‹ it is hygrosc ...

5. Characterization of SiGe Films for use as a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Microanalysis Reference material (RM 8905)
Report Number: 8905
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Ryna Beth Marinenko, Shirley Turner, David S Simons, Savelas A Rabb, Rolf Louis Zeisler, Lee Lijian Yu, Dale E Newbury, Rick L Paul, Nicholas W m Ritchie, Stefan D Leigh, Michael R Winchester, Lee J Richter, Douglas C Meier, Keana C K Scott, D Klinedinst, John A Small
Abstract: Bulk SiGe wafers cut from single-crystal boules and two SiGe thick films (4 m and 5 m thick) on Si wafers were evaluated with the electron probe microanalyzer for the extent of heterogeneity and composition for use as reference materi ...

6. Generating and Using Data of Higher Dimension for Gas-Phase Chemical Sensing
Published: 5/29/2009
Authors: Baranidharan Raman, Joshua L. Hertz, Kurt D Benkstein, Douglas C Meier, Casey Mungle, Stephen Semancik
Abstract: Methods to acquire and analyze rich data streams from sensors are helpful, if not required, to track chemical components within complex gas-phase environments. We describe a MEMS-based microsensor technology that populates multi-element arrays with m ...

7. Analysis of Copper incorporation in Zno Nanowires
Published: 1/12/2009
Authors: Susie Eustis, Douglas C Meier, M R. Beversluis, Babak Nikoobakht

8. Coupling Nanowire Chemiresistors With Microhotplate Platforms for Advanced Gas Sensing
Published: 8/6/2007
Authors: Douglas C Meier, Stephen Semancik, Bradley Button, Eugene Strelcov, Andrei Kilmakov
Abstract: Recent advances in nanotechnology have yielded new materials and structures that offer great potential for improving sensitivity, selectivity and stability of the next generation of chemical gas sensors. To successfully fabricate practical devices, t ...

9. Integration of Nanostructured Materials With MEMS Microhotplate Platforms to Enhance Chemical Sensor Performance
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Kurt D Benkstein, C Martinez, Guofeng Li, Douglas C Meier, Christopher B Montgomery, Stephen Semancik
Abstract: The development of small sensors (low mass, small size and low power budgets) has been an increasingly active area of research for multiple applications, including industrial process monitoring, building security and extraterrestrial exploration. Nan ...

10. Temperature Measurements of Microhotplates Using Fluorescence Thermometry
Published: 3/1/2006
Authors: Christopher W Meyer, Douglas C Meier, Christopher B Montgomery, Stephen Semancik
Abstract: A fluorescence microscope has been constructed for measuring surface temperatures of microhotplate platforms. The microscope measures temperature-dependent fluorescence lifetimes of a film of the phosphor Mg4(F)GeO6:Mn which is deposited on the micr ...
