1. 3D Nanoscale Characterization of Thin-Film Organic Photovoltaic Device Structures via Spectroscopic Contrast in the TEM
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/21/2010
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Lee J Richter, Ian M. Anderson
Abstract: The three-dimensional characterization of third generation photovoltaic device structures at the nanometer scale is essential to the development of efficient, reliable, and inexpensive solar cell technologies. Electron tomography is a powerful metho ...

Sundararajan, Elena Timofeeva, Todd Tritcak, A.N. Turanov, Stefan Van Vaerenbergh, Dongsheng Wen, Sanjeeva Witharana, Charles Chun Yang, W.-H. Yeh, Xiao-Zheng Zhao, Sheng-Qi Zhou
Abstract: This article reports on the International Nanofluid Property Benchmark Exercise (INPBE) in which the thermal conductivity of identical samples of colloidal dispersions of nanoparticles, or nanofluids , was measured by over 30 organizations worldwi ...

3. A Focused Chromium Ion Beam
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/21/2010
Authors: Adam V Steele, Brenton John Knuffman, Jabez J McClelland, Jon Orloff
Abstract: With the goal of expanding the capabilities of focused ion beam microscopy and milling systems, we have demonstrated nanoscale focusing of chromium ions produced in a magneto-optical trap ion source (MOTIS). Neutral chromium atoms are captured into ...

4. A Glowing Future for Lab on a Chip Testing Standards
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 6/28/2012
Author: Samuel M Stavis
Abstract: Testing standards are more fundamental from a metrological perspective and less controversial from an industrial perspective than product standards, representing a path of less resistance towards the standardization and commercialization of lab on a ...

5. A Novel Method to Covalently Functionalize Carbon Nanotubes with Isocyanates
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 9/30/2009
Authors: Tinh Nguyen, Aline Granier, Kristen L. Steffens, Hajin Lee, Naomi Eidelman, Jonathan W. Martin
Abstract: We have developed a novel method to covalently functionalize carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that carry free isocyanate (N=C=O) groups. NCO-functionalized CNTs (NCO-fCNTs) are very desirable, because the NCO group is highly reactive with hydrogen-active grou ...

6. A Phosphine Sub Atmospheric Delivery System (SADS) applied to Low Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition (LPCVD) of in situ doped Polysilicon.
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 7/23/2012
Authors: Vincent K Luciani, William D Young Jr, Lei NMN Chen, Jerry L Bowser

7. A circular dielectric grating for vertical extraction of single quantum dot emission
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 7/25/2011
Authors: Marcelo Ishihara Davanco, Matthew T. Rakher, Dieter Schuh, Antonio Badolato, Kartik A Srinivasan
Abstract: We demonstrate a suspended circular grating composed of partially etched annular trenches in a thin GaAs membrane, designed for e±cient and moderately broadband ( approx. 5 nm) extraction of emission from single InAs quantum dots. Simulations indic ...

8. A moving window correlation method to reduce the distortion of SPM images
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 8/20/2009
Authors: Wei Chu, Joseph Fu, Ronald G Dixson, Ndubuisi George Orji, Theodore Vincent Vorburger
Abstract: Many scanning probe microscopes (SPMs), such as the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) and atomic force microscope (AFM), use piezoelectric actuators operating in open loop for generating the scans of the surfaces. However, nonlinearities mainly cau ...

9. 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 ...

10. 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 ...
