31. Capillary Wave Dynamics of Thin Polymer films over Submerged Nanostructures
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 11/16/2012
Authors: Christopher Soles, Hyun Wook Ro, K. J. Alvine, Oleg Shpyrko, Yenling Dai, Alec Sandy, Suresh Narayanan
Abstract: The surface dynamics of thin molten polystyrene films supported by nanoscale periodic silicon line-space gratings were investigated with X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy. Surface dynamics over these nanostructures exhibit high directional aniso ...

32. Giant piezoelectricity in PMN-PT thin films: Beyond PZT
Topic: Nanomaterials
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 ...

33. Anomalous Friction in Suspended Graphene
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/20/2012
Authors: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky, Jason Philip Killgore
Abstract: Since the discovery of the Amonton's law and with support of modern tribological models, friction between surfaces of three-dimensional materials is known to generally increase when the surfaces are in closer contact. Here, using molecular dynamics s ...

34. Colorimetric Detection with Aptamer-Gold Nanoparticle Conjugates: Effect of Aptamer Length on Response
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/14/2012
Authors: Jorge L Chavez, Robert I. MacCuspie, Nancy Kelley-Loughnane, Morley O Stone
Abstract: A riboflavin binding aptamer (RBA) was used in combination with gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) to detect riboflavin in vitro. The RBA-AuNPs responded colorimetrically to the presence of riboflavin and this response could be followed by the naked eye. We ...

35. Microwave measurements and systematic circuit-model extraction of nanowire metal semiconductor field-effect transistors
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 8/24/2012
Authors: Dazhen Gu, Thomas M Wallis, Pavel Kabos, Paul T Blanchard, Kristine A Bertness, Norman A Sanford
Abstract: We present detailed on-wafer scattering parameter measurements and equivalent circuit modeling of metal semiconductor field effect transistor (MESFET) that incorporates a GaN nanowire (NW). A systematic procedure is established to extract intrinsic m ...

36. Contact resistance of low-temperature carbon nanotube vertical interconnects
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 8/20/2012
Authors: Ann Chiaramonti Chiaramonti Debay, Sten Vollebregt, R. Ishihara, Hugo Schellevis, Kees Beenakker
Abstract: In this work the electrical contact resistance and length dependant resistance of vertically aligned carbon nano- tubes (CNT) grown at 500 °C with high tube density (1011) are investigated by measuring samples with different CNT lengths. From scannin ...

37. Nano-Apatitic Composite Scaffolds for Stem Cell Delivery and Bone Tissue Engineering
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 4/15/2012
Authors: Hockin H. K. Xu, Carl George Simon Jr.
Abstract: The need for bone defect repair and regeneration arises from trauma, disease, congenital deformity, and tumor resection. Bone fracture occurs to seven million people each year in the United States, and musculoskeletal conditions cost $215 billion ann ...

38. Rippling Instability of Supported Polymer Nanolines
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 2/21/2012
Authors: Vijaya R. Tirumala, Christopher M Stafford, Leonidas E. Ocola, Jack F Douglas, L. Mahadevan
Abstract: The swelling response of polymer line gratings supported on a rigid substrate has direct implications on their mechanical stability during pattern transfer in nanofabrication. The polymer lines, when swollen in a good solvent, undergo a rippling inst ...

39. 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 ...

40. 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 ...
