21. Nanoscale Imaging of Plasmonic Hot Spots and Dark Modes with the Photothermal Induced Resonance Technique
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 7/10/2013
Authors: Basudev Lahiri, Glenn E Holland, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Andrea Centrone
Abstract: The collective oscillation of conduction electrons, responsible for the LSPRs, enables engineering nanomaterials by tuning their optical response from the visible to THz as a function of nanostructure size, shape and environment. While theoretical ca ...

22. Graphene Epitaxial Growth on SiC(0001) for Resistance Standards
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 6/3/2013
Authors: Mariano A. Real, Eric Lass, Fan-Hung H. Liu, Tian T. Shen, George R Jones, Johannes A Soons, David B Newell, Albert Davydov, Randolph E Elmquist
Abstract: A well-controlled technique for high-temperature epitaxial growth on 6H-SiC(0001) substrates is shown to allow development of monolayer graphene that exhibits promise for precise metrological applications. Face-to-face (FTF) and face-to-graphite (FTG ...

23. Gradient Nanofiber Scaffold Libraries for Screening Cell Response to Poly(e-caprolactone)-Calcium Phosphate Composites
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 3/1/2013
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Limin Sun, Laurence Chung Lung Chow, William Miles, Christopher K. Tison, Kaushik Chatterjee, Marian F Young, Vinoy Thomas, Murugan Ramalingam
Abstract: A 2-spinnerette approach has been developed for fabricating nanofiber scaffold gradients for use as 1) scaffold libraries for screening the effect of nanofiber properties on cell response and 2) templates for generating graded tissue interfaces. Alt ...

24. Compression-Fatigue, Elastic Modulus, and Thermal Contraction of Insulated Conduit Arrays of ITER CS Modules
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 1/9/2013
Authors: Timothy S Weeks, Joseph David McColskey, Richard Reed, Robert Walsh, N. Martovetsky
Abstract: Abstract- Compression-fatigue tests at 76 K were conducted to compare two insulation systems (epoxy resin impregnated glass/Kapton) for use in the ITER Central Solenoid modules. Test samples consisted of insulated conduits that were stacked in 4 x 4 ...

25. Structure and Dynamics Studies of Concentrated Micrometer-Sized Colloidal Suspensions
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 1/7/2013
Authors: Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Lyle E Levine, Jan Ilavsky, Gabrielle Gibbs Long
Abstract: We present an experimental study of the structural and dynamical properties of concentrated suspensions of a series of different sized polystyrene microspheres dispersed in glycerol for volume fraction concentrations between 10 % and 20 %. The static ...

26. Ultra-Small Angle X-ray Scattering Instrument at the Advanced Photon Source, History, Recent Development, and Current Status
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 1/1/2013
Authors: Andrew John Allen, Fan Zhang, Lyle E Levine, Gabrielle Gibbs Long, Jan Ilavsky, Pete R. Jemian
Abstract: The history and development over more than 25 years is presented and discussed of an ultra-small-angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) instrument dedicated to serving a broad range of materials research needs. This history is traced from the instrument‰s o ...

27. Nanoscale Specific Heat Capacity Measurements Using Optoelectronic Bilayer Microcantilevers
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: Brian G. (Brian Gregory) Burke, William A Osborn, Richard Swift Gates, David A LaVan
Abstract: We describe a new technique for optically and electrically detecting and heating bilayer microcantilevers (Pt−SiNx) to high temperatures at fast heating rates for nanoscale specific heat capacity measurements. The bilayer microcantilever acts s ...

28. An automated spin-assisted approach for molecular layer-by-layer assembly of crosslinked polymer thin films
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 11/28/2012
Authors: Edwin P Chan, Jung-Hyun Lee, Jun-Young Chung, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: We present the design of an automated spin-coater that facilitates fabrication of polymer films based on molecular layer-by-layer (mLbL) assembly. Specifically, we demonstrate the synthesis of ultrathin crosslinked fully-aromatic polyamide films ...

29. Effect of offset values of solid freeform fabricated PCL/ß-TCP scaffolds on mechanical properties and cellular activities in bone tissue regeneration
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., GeunHyung Kim, MyungGu Yo
Abstract: Microstructures of biomedical scaffolds can greatly affect cellular activities in tissue regeneration. In particular, scaffolds used in bone tissue regeneration should have several microstructural characteristics, including high porosity, appropriate ...

30. Giant piezoelectricity in PMN-PT thin films: Beyond PZT
Topic: Advanced Materials
Published: 11/1/2012
Authors: S. H. Baek, M. S. Rzchowski, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) incorporating piezoelectric layers provide active transduction between electrical and mechanical energy, which enables highly sensitive sensors and low-voltage driven actuators surpassing the passive operation o ...
