21. Preparation of silver nanoparticle loaded cotton threads to facilitate measurement development for textile applications
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1200-8
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 1/26/2015
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Karen E Murphy, Jingyu Liu, Dimitri Tselenchuk, Gheorghe Stan, Thao M. Nguyen, Richard D Holbrook, Michael R Winchester, Robert Francis Cook, Robert MacCuspie, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: FOREWORD This NIST special publication (SP) is one in a series of NIST SPs that address research needs articulated in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy published in 2011 [1]. This ...

22. A self-calibrating optomechanical force sensor with femtonewton resolution
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: John T. Melcher, Julian Stirling, Felipe Guzman, Jon Robert Pratt, Gordon Allan Shaw
Abstract: We report the development of an ultrasensitive optomechanical sensor designed to improve the accuracy and precision of force measurements with atomic force microscopy. The sensors achieve quality factors of 4.3x10^6 (a 100-fold improvement over qua ...

23. Nanomanufacturing Metrology for Cellulosic Nanomaterials: an Update
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 12/1/2014
Author: Michael T Postek
Abstract: The development of the metrology and standards for advanced manufacturing of cellulosic nanomaterials (or basically, wood-based nanotechnology) is imperative to the success of this rising economic sector. Wood-based nanotechnology is a revolutionary ...

24. The Economic Impacts of Early Stage Consensus Standards Development: A Case Study of Nanotechnology Documentary Standards
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 11/30/2014
Authors: David P. Leech, John T. Scott
Abstract: This economic impact assessment focuses on documentary standards development for nanotechnology. Nanotechnology developments and applications are just emerging; thus, the standards studied in this report are regarded as ,early-stageŠ or ,proactiveŠ s ...

25. Broad Band Optical Properties of Large Area Monolayer CVD Molybdenum Disulfide
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 11/21/2014
Authors: wei li, Glen Birdwell, Matin Amani, Yi-Hsien Lee, Ling Xi, Xuelei Liang, Lianmao Peng, Curt A Richter, Kong Jing, David J Gundlach, Nhan V Nguyen

26. Accurate determination of the size distribution for polydisperse, cationic metallic nanomaterials by asymmetric-flow field flow fractionation
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 11/13/2014
Authors: Julien C. Gigault, Thao M. Nguyen, John M Pettibone, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: In this work we have developed and validated a methodology for determining the size distribution in polydisperse cationic nanoparticle (NP) samples using asymmetric-flow field flow fractionation (A4F), where known compositional influence of previousl ...

27. Mechanisms of aging and release from weathered nanocomposites
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/31/2014
Authors: Tinh Nguyen, Wendel Wohlleben, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocomposites are increasingly used in outdoor structures. However, polymers are susceptible to degradation by solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which potentially releases nanofiller during polymer nanocomposites‰ life cycle. Such release ma ...

28. Nanoparticle size determination using optical microscopes
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/27/2014
Authors: Ravikiran Attota, Richard J Kasica, Premsagar Purushotham Kavuri, Hyeong Gon (Hyeonggon) Kang, Lei Chen
Abstract: We present a simple method for size determination of nanoparticles using conventional optical microscopes. The method, called through-focus scanning optical microscopy (TSOM), makes use of the four-dimensional optical information collected at differe ...

29. A pilot interlaboratory comparison of protocols that simulate aging of nanocomposites and detect released fragments
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Wendel Wohlleben, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: The safe use of nanocomposites depends, in part, on a good understanding of the fate of nanofillers throughout the nanocomposite,s lifecycle. Various modifications of ISO weathering protocols have been proposed to assess what is released and at which ...

30. Photoelectron spectroscopy of wet and gaseous samples through electron transparent graphene membranes
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 9/22/2014
Authors: Jurgen Kraus, Robert Reichelt, Sebastian Gunther, Luca Gregoratti, Matteo Amati, Maya Kiskinova, Alexander Yulaev, Ivan Vlassiouk, Andrei A Kolmakov
Abstract: Photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and microscopy are highly demanded for exploring morphologically complex solid-gas and solid-liquid interfaces under realistic conditions but the very small electron mean free path inside the dense media imposes serio ...
