41. Direct Observation of Hydrogen Spillover in Ni-Loaded Pr-Doped Ceria
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 1/17/2012
Authors: Vaneet Sharma, Peter A. Crozier, Renu Sharma, James B. Adams
Abstract: Hydrogen-spillover in Ni-loaded Pr-doped ceria (PDC) was directly observed using an environmental transmission electron microscope (ETEM). Localized reduction of ceria in a H2 atmosphere was observed and attributed to gas-Ni-ceria interactions at the ...

43. Effect of elastic deformation on frictional properties of few-layer graphene
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 1/9/2012
Authors: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky, Jason Philip Killgore, Vinod K Tewary
Abstract: We describe the results of Brownian dynamics (BD) simulations of an AFM tip scanned on locally suspended few-layer graphene. The effects of surface compliance and sample relaxation are directly related to the observed friction force. We demonstrate t ...

44. Determination of Moisture Content of Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 10/17/2011
Authors: Rolf Louis Zeisler, Rabia Oflaz, Ralph E. Sturgeon, Rick L Paul, Brian E Lang, Jeffrey A Fagan, Joseph W Lam, Anthony Windust, P Grinberg, Benoit Simard, Christopher T. Kingston
Abstract: Several techniques were evaluated for the establishment of reliable water/moisture content of single-wall carbon nanotubes. Karl Fischer titration (KF) provides for a direct measure of the water content and was used for benchmarking against results ...

45. High Frequency Characterization of Contact Resistance and Conductivity of Platinum Nanowires*
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 10/1/2011
Authors: Kichul Kim, Paul Rice, Thomas M Wallis, Dazhen Gu, SangHyun Lim, Atif (Atif) Imtiaz, Pavel Kabos, Dejan Filipovic
Abstract: Abstract, Individual platinum (Pt) nanowires (NWs) with 100 nm and 250 nm diameters, embedded in coplanar waveguide (CPW) structures are investigated. Three approaches for characterization of their contact resistance and conductivity at high frequenc ...

47. Effect of AlN Buffer Layer Properties on the Morphology and Polarity of GaN Nanowires Grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/8/2011
Authors: Matthew David Brubaker, Kristine A Bertness, Norman A Sanford, Albert Davydov, Igor Levin, Devin M. Rourke, Victor M. Bright
Abstract: Low temperature AlN buffer layers grown by plasma-assisted Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) on Si (111) were found to significantly affect the subsequent growth morphology of GaN nanowires. The AlN buffer layers exhibited nanowire-like columnar protrusi ...

48. Molecular-Crowding-Induced Clustering of DNA-Wrapped Carbon Nanotubes for Facile Length Fractionation
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/6/2011
Authors: Constantine Y. Khripin, Nicholas A. Arnold-Medabalimi, Ming Zheng
Abstract: Emerging applications require single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) of welldefined length. Yet the use of length-defined SWCNTs is limited, in part due to the lack of an easily accessible materials preparation method. Here, we present a new strateg ...

49. Characterizing the Mechanical Properties and Degradation of Thin Polymer Membranes
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 8/28/2011
Authors: Christopher M Stafford, Jun Y. Chung, Junghyun Lee
Abstract: The elasticity, strength, and toughness of thin polymer membranes are of considerable interest since direct knowledge of these key mechanical properties can provide insight into performance, durability, and underlying degradation mechanisms that occu ...
