1. Design and modeling of an ultra-compact 2x2 nanomechanical plasmonic switch
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 5/4/2016
Author: Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: A 2x2 Mach-Zehnder optical switch design with a footprint of 0.5 um x 2.5 um using nanomechanical gap plasmon phase modulators [1] is presented. The extremely small footprint and modest optical loss are enabled by the strong phase modulation of gap p ...

2. UV-assisted NO2 sensing at room temperature using rf-sputtered TiO2 thin film
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 12/25/2015
Authors: Ting Xie, Nichole Sullivan, Kristen L. Steffens, Baomei Wen, Guannan Liu, Ratan Kumar Debnath, Albert Davydov, Romel D. Gomez, Abhishek Motayed
Abstract: A TiO2 thin film based NO2 sensor that operates at room temperature under ultraviolet (UV) illumination was fabricated via radio frequency (rf) sputtering. The sputter-deposited TiO2 films, after 30 s annealing at 700 ⁰C in Ar, were investigate ...

3. Strategies for transmission electron microscopy specimen preparation of polymer composites
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1200-16
Topic: Nanotechnology

5. Protocols for Accelerating Laboratory Weathering and Measurements of Degradation of Polymer-Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Composites
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1200-15
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 8/3/2015
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Polymer nanocomposites containing multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) are increasingly or potentially will be used in many large-volume industries. These advanced composites are exposed to severe mechanical and environmental stresses, such that, d ...

6. Unexpected Changes in Functionality and Surface Coverage for Au Nanoparticle PEI Conjugates: Implications for Stability and Efficacy in Biological Systems
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 6/26/2015
Authors: Tae Joon Cho, John M Pettibone, Justin M Gorham, Thao M. Nguyen, Robert I. MacCuspie, Julien C. Gigault, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: Attached.

7. Spin-scattering rates in metallic thin films measured by ferromagnetic resonance damping enhanced by spin-pumping
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 6/12/2015
Authors: Carl T. Boone, Justin M Shaw, Hans Toya Nembach, Thomas J Silva
Abstract: We determined the spin-transport properties of Pd and Pt thin films by measuring the increase in ferromagnetic resonance damping due to spin-pumping in ferromagnetic (FM)-nonferromagnetic metal (NM) multilayers with varying NM thicknesses. The increa ...

8. Reconstitution of 2 nm diameter Silicon Nanoparticles (RM8027) into aqueous solvents
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1184
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 6/3/2015
Author: Vytautas Reipa
Abstract: NIST recently has released a SiNP reference material RM8027 that consists of five hermetically sealed pre-scored glass ampoules, each containing nominally 1 ml of cyclohexane-stabilized SiNP‰s suspended in toluene. The suspension contains particl ...

9. Measuring the Size of Nanoparticles in Aqueous Media Using Batch-Mode Dynamic Light Scattering
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1200-6
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 5/6/2015
Authors: Vincent A Hackley, Jeffrey D Clogston

10. Thermal Analysis of Nanoparticles: Methods, Kinetics and Recent Advances
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 5/4/2015
Author: Elisabeth Mansfield
Abstract: This chapter will provide an overview of the thermal techniques available to study nanoparticles, including thermogravimetric analysis, calorimetry and differential scanning calorimetry. The use of thermoanalysis for the measurement of nanoparticle ...
