51. A semicontinuum model for Si(x)Ge(1-x) alloys: calculation of their elastic characteristics and the strain field at the free surface of a semi-infinite alloy
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 7/11/2011
Authors: Vinod K Tewary, Mark D Vaudin
Abstract: A semicontiuum Green‰s-function-based model is proposed for analysis of averaged mechanical characteristics of Si(x)Ge(1-x). The atomistic forces in the model are distributed at discrete lattice sites, but the Green‰s function is approximated by the ...

52. Highly selective GaN-nanowire/TiO2-nanocluster hybrid sensors for detection of benzene and related environment pollutants
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 6/15/2011
Author: Norman A Sanford
Abstract: Nanowire‹nanocluster hybrid chemical sensors were realized by functionalizing gallium nitride (GaN) nanowires (NWs) with titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoclusters for selectively sensing benzene and other related aromatic compounds. Hybrid sensor device ...

53. Atomic-Scale Structural Characterization of Double-Supported WO3/TiO2/SiO2 Solid Acid Catalysts
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 6/14/2011
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Wu Zhou, Kevin Doura, Eiji Okunishi, Elizabeth Ross-Medgaarden, Israel Wachs, Christopher Kiely

54. Effect of oxidation on surface-enhanced Raman scattering activity of silver nanoparticles: a quantitative correlation
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 6/6/2011
Authors: Yun Han, Robert Lupitskyy, Tseng-Ming Chou, Christopher M Stafford, Henry Du, Svetlana Sukhishvili
Abstract: The effect of silver oxidation on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) was investigated using citrate-reduced silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) (45-50 nm in diameter) immobilized on glass substrate. Oxidation of Ag NPs was performed in controlled ozo ...

55. Directed 2D-to-3D pattern transfer method for controlled fabrication of topologically complex three- dimensional nanostructures in silicon
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 2/1/2011
Authors: Konrad Rykaczewski, Owen J. Hildreth, Ching P. Wong, Andrei G. Fedorov, John Henry j Scott
Abstract: A process allowing for control over the 3D motion of catalyst nanostructures during Metal-assisted Chemical Etching by their local pinning prior to etching is developed. Topologically complex 3D structures that are partially located within the et ...

56. Combinatorial Screening of Osteoblast Response to 3D Calcium Phosphate/Poly(e-caprolactone) Scaffolds Using Gradients and Arrays
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 12/31/2010
Authors: Carl George Simon Jr., Kaushik Chatterjee, Laurence Chung Lung Chow, Limin Sun, Marian F Young
Abstract: There is a need to improve rapid methods for screening cell-biomaterial interactions. Current methods employ a flat 2D format even though 3D scaffolds are more representative of the tissue environment in vivo and cells are responsive to topological ...

57. Investigation of Thermally Responsive Block Copolymer Thin Film Morphologies Using Surface Gradients
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 10/20/2010
Authors: Jennifer Y. Kelly, Julie N. L. Albert, John A. Howarter, Shuhui Kang, Christopher M Stafford, Thomas H Epps, Michael J Fasolka
Abstract: We report the use of a gradient library approach to characterize the structure and behavior of thin films of a thermally-responsive block copolymer (BCP), poly(styrene-b-tert-butyl acrylate), that exhibits chemical deprotection and morphological chan ...

58. Predicting Microstructure Development During Casting of Drug Eluting Coatings
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/19/2010
Authors: David M. Saylor, Jonathan E Guyer, Daniel Wheeler, James A Warren
Abstract: We have devised a novel diffuse interface formulation to model the development of chem- ical and physical inhomogeneities, i.e. microstructure, during the process of casting drug eluting coatings. These inhomogeneities, which depend on the ...

59. Surface Energy/Chemistry Gradients for Block Copolymer Thin Film Studies
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 8/2/2010
Authors: Julie N. L. Albert, Michael J. Baney, Christopher M Stafford, Jennifer Y. Kelly, Thomas H Epps
Abstract: Development of self-assembling block copolymer materials for emerging nanotechnologies requires an understanding of how surface energy and chemistry affect thin film phase behavior. Gradient methods provide an effective route to explore the role of ...

60. Mechanical properties of one-dimensional nanostructures
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 5/23/2010
Authors: Gheorghe Stan, Robert Francis Cook
Abstract: The elastic mechanical properties of one-dimensional nanostructures are considered, with an emphasis on the use of contact-resonance atomic force microscopy methods to determine elastic moduli. Various methods used to determine elastic moduli of one- ...
