1. A Fiber-Optic Interferometer with Sub-Picometer Resolution for DC and Low-Frequency Displacement Measurement
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/13/2009
Authors: Douglas T Smith, Jon Robert Pratt, L Howard
Abstract: We have developed a fiber-optic interferometer optimized for best performance in the frequency range from DC to 1 kHz, with displacement linearity of 1 % over a range of ± 25 nm, and noise-limited resolution of 2 pm. The interferometer uses a tunabl ...

2. A Scalable Platform for Integrating Horizontal Nanochannels with Known Registries to Microchannels
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 12/8/2008
Author: Babak Nikoobakht
Abstract: A new method for in-situ fabrication of nanochannels is developed which allows adjusting their average pore size to an unprecedented range of 5 nm to 20 nm. It is shown that nanochannels with different but controlled pore sizes are selectively fab ...

3. A parametric interatomic potential for graphene
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 2/27/2009
Authors: Vinod K Tewary, B. Yang
Abstract: A parametric interatomic potential is constructed for graphene. The potential energy consists of two parts: bond energy and radial interaction energy. The bond energy part is a generalized version of the Tersoff-Brenner potential. It includes angula ...

4. A spray drying system for synthesis of rare-earth doped cerium oxide nanoparticles
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 8/10/2010
Author: Renu Sharma
Abstract: We have constructed a spray-dryer to synthesize doped ceria nanoparticles. This system was employed to synthesize mixed oxide nanoparticles of praseodymium doped (3%, 10% and 20mol %) ceria. X-ray Diffraction (XRD) confirmed the fluorite-like cubic ...

5. Ab initio study of the mechanical and the transport properties of pure and contaminated silver nanowires
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Shmuel Barzilai, Francesca M Tavazza, Lyle E Levine
Abstract: The conductance and mechanical properties of pure and contaminated silver nanowires were studied using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Several nanowires containing O2 on their surface were elongated along two different directions. All o ...

6. Acoustic Modes and Elastic Properties of Polymeric Nanostructures
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 10/21/2005
Authors: R Hartschuh, A Kisliuk, V N Novikov, Alexei Sokolov, Paul R Heyliger, Colm Flannery, Ward L Johnson, Christopher L Soles, Wen-Li Wu
Abstract: Fabricating mechanically robust polymer structures with nanoscale dimensions is critical for a wide range of emerging technologies. The rigidity of such structures is expected to change as the feature sizes approach the characteristic dimensions of ...

7. Aggregation/agglomeration state of carbon nanotubes
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 10/12/2012
Authors: Vivek M Prabhu, Toshiya Okazaki, Takeshi Eitoku, Masayoshi Tange, Haruhisa Kato
Abstract: Evaluation of aggregation and agglomeration of carbon nanotube (CNT) solution has been one of the key issues for applications. Here we introduce a simple method based on depolarized dynamic light scattering (DDLS) performed at multiple scattering ang ...

8. Analysis of Au Nanoparticles by Electrospray Differential Mobility Analysis (ES-DMA)
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/1/2010
Author: Rebecca A Zangmeister
Abstract: This document describes a protocol for size analysis of citrate stabilized gold nanoparticles of nominally 10 nm, 30 nm, and 60 nm sizes using electrospray differential mobility analysis (ES-DMA).  Nanoparticles are centrifuged to remove excess ...

9. Analysis of Copper incorporation in Zno Nanowires
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 1/12/2009
Authors: Susie Eustis, Douglas C Meier, M R. Beversluis, Babak Nikoobakht

10. 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 ...
