11. Localization and electron-electron interactions in few-layer epitaxial graphene
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 5/28/2014
Authors: Randolph E Elmquist, Fan-Hung Liu, Lung-I Huang, Yasuhiro Fukuyama, Chi-Te Liang, Yanfei Yang
Abstract: We study the quantum corrections caused by electron-electron (e-e) interactions and localization to the conductivity in few-layer epitaxial graphene, in which the carriers responsible for transport are massive. Our results demonstrate that the diffus ...

12. Single molecule confocal fluorescence lifetime correlation spectroscopy for accurate nanoparticle size determination
Topic: Nanotechnology
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 ...

13. Comparison of the Properties of Cellulose Nanocrystals and Cellulose Nanofibrils Isolated From Bacteria, Tunicate, and Wood Processed Using Acid, Enzymatic, Mechanical, and Oxidative Methods
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 4/18/2014
Authors: Iulia Alisa Sacui, Jeffrey W Gilman, Ryan C Nieuwendaal, Stephan J Stranick, Henryk Szmacinski, Mehdi Jorfi, Christopher Weder, Johan Foster, Richard Olsson, Daniel Burnett
Abstract: This work describes the study and characterization of native cellulose nanocrystals and nanofibrils (CNCs, CNFs), whose crystallinity, morphology, aspect ratio, and surface chemistry depend on the raw material source and hydrolysis conditions. Me ...

14. Preparation of nanocomposite plasmonic films made from cellulose nanocrystals or mesoporous silica decorated with unidirectionally aligned gold nanorods
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 4/11/2014
Authors: Michael Campbell, Qingkun Liu, Aric Warner Sanders, Julian Evans, Ivan I. Smalyukh
Abstract: Using liquid crystalline self-assembly of cellulose nanocrystals, we achieve long-range alignment of anisotropic metal nanoparticles in colloidal nanocrystal dispersions that are then used to deposit thin structured films with ordering features h ...

15. Establishing an upper bound on contact resistivity of ohmic contacts to n-GaN nanowires
Topic: Nanotechnology
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 ...

17. Storage Wars: How citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions are affected by not-so-trivial decisions
Topic: Nanotechnology
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 ...

18. Highly Stable Positively Charged Dendron-Encapsulated Gold Nanoparticles
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 3/13/2014
Authors: Tae Joon Cho, Robert I. MacCuspie, Julien C. Gigault, Justin M Gorham, John T Elliott, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: We report the development of a novel cationic dendron (TAG1-PCD) and a positively charged gold nanoparticle-dendron conjugate (PCD-AuNP). TAG1-PCD was designed by considering the reactivity, hydrophilicity, and cationic nature that is required to yie ...

19. Frequency, amplitude, and phase measurement in contact resonance atomic force microscopies
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 3/12/2014
Authors: Gheorghe Stan, Santiago de Jesus Solares Rivera
Abstract: We analysed the resonance frequency, amplitude, and phase response of the first two eigenmodes of two contact-resonance atomic force microscopy (CR-AFM) configurations, differing in the method used to excite the system (cantilever base vs. sample exc ...

20. Documentation for Reference Material (RM) 8820: A Versatile, Multipurpose Dimensional Metrology Calibration Standard for Scanned Particle Beam, Scanned Probe and Optical Microscopy
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1170
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 2/3/2014
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar, Bin Ming, Bunday Benjamin
Abstract: Reference Material (RM) 8820 is a multipurpose instrument calibration standard available from NIST. This is a dimensional standard initially developed to replace the out of stock RM 8090 used for X and Y scale calibrations of scanned particle beam mi ...
