1. Resolving three-dimensional shape of sub-50 nm wide lines with nanometer-scale sensitivity using conventional optical microscopes
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 7/29/2014
Authors: Ravikiran (Ravikiran) Attota, Ronald G Dixson
Abstract: We experimentally demonstrate that the three-dimensional (3-D) shape variations of nanometer-scale objects can be resolved and measured with sub-nanometer scale sensitivity using conventional optical microscopes by analyzing 3-D optical data using th ...

2. Dielectric characterization by microwave cavity perturbation corrected for non-uniform fields
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Nathan Daniel Orloff, Jan Obrzut, Christian John Long, Thomas Fung Lam, James C Booth, David R Novotny, James Alexander Liddle, Pavel Kabos
Abstract: The non-uniform fields that occur due to the slot in the cavity through which the sample is inserted and those due to the sample geometry itself decrease the accuracy of dielectric characterization by cavity perturbation at microwave frequencies. ...

3. High-speed, high-purity separation of gold nanoparticle‹DNA origami constructs using centrifugation
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 7/23/2014
Authors: Seung H. Ko, Luis Fernando Vargas Lara, Paul N. Patrone, Samuel M Stavis, Francis Starr, Jack F Douglas, James Alexander Liddle
Abstract: DNA origami is a powerful platform for assembling gold nanoparticle constructs, an important class of nanostructure with numerous applications. Such constructs are assembled by the association of complementary DNA oligomers. These association reactio ...

4. Quasiparticle scattering from topological crystalline insulator SnTe (001) surface states
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 6/27/2014
Authors: Duming Zhang, Hongwoo Baek, Jeonghoon Ha, Tong Zhang, Jonathan E Wyrick, Albert Davydov, Young Kuk, Joseph A Stroscio
Abstract: Recently, the topological classification of electronic states has been extended to a new class of matter known as topological crystalline insulators. Similar to topological insulators, topological crystalline insulators also have spin-momentum locked ...

5. Intermittent contact resonance atomic force microscopy
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 5/23/2014
Authors: Gheorghe Stan, Richard Swift Gates
Abstract: The intermittent contact resonance atomic force microscopy (ICR-AFM) mode proposed here is a new frequency modulation technique performed in scanning force controlled AFM modes like force volume or peak force tapping. It consists of tracking the chan ...

6. Non-contact Conductance Measurement of Nanosize Objects using Reasonant Cavity
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Nathan Daniel Orloff, Oleg A Kirillov
Abstract: A cavity perturbation method is used to determine conductance of small volume nano-carbon materials. These are the building blocks of nanostructured materials and devices, and therefore their electrical characteristics are important in the materials ...

7. Single molecule confocal fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy for accurate nanoparticle size determination
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Bonghwan Chon, Kimberly A Briggman, Jeeseong Hwang
Abstract: We report on an experimental procedure in confocal single molecule fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy (FLCS) to determine the range of excitation power and molecule concentration in solution under which the application of an unmodified ...

8. Optimizing Hybrid Metrology through a Consistent Multi-Tool Parameter Set and Uncertainty Model
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 4/14/2014
Authors: Richard M Silver, Bryan M Barnes, Nien F Zhang, Hui Zhou, Andras Vladar, John S Villarrubia, Regis J Kline, Daniel Franklin Sunday, Alok Vaid
Abstract: There has been significant interest in hybrid metrology as a novel method for reducing overall measurement uncertainty and optimizing measurement throughput (speed) through rigorous combinations of two or more different measurement techniques into a ...

9. Establishing an upper bound on contact resistivity of ohmic contacts to n-GaN nanowires
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Paul Timothy Blanchard, Kristine A Bertness, Todd E Harvey, Norman A Sanford
Abstract: Contact resistivity {rho}^dc^ is an important figure of merit in evaluating and improving the performance of electronic and optoelectronic devices. Due to the small size, unique morphology, and uncertain transport properties of semiconductor nano ...

10. Storage Wars: How citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions are affected by not-so-trivial decisions
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 3/21/2014
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Anne B Rohlfing, Katrice A Lippa, Robert I. MacCuspie, Amy Hemmati, Richard D Holbrook
Abstract: A critical but often overlooked component of silver nanoparticle (AgNPs) suspensions involves their behavior following short- and long-term storage. The current study investigates the integrity of citrate-capped AgNP suspensions, nominally 20 nm in ...
