1. 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 ...

2. A three-dimensional, polarization-insensitive superconducting nanowire avalanche photodetector
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 12/20/2012
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Francesco F. Marsili, Adriana Eleni Lita, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Single-photon detectors are an essential tool for a wide range of applications in quantum information, quantum communications, and quantum optics. Over the past decade, superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) have become promising a ...

3. 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 ...

4. 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 ...

5. 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 ...

6. Atom probe tomography evaporation behavior of C-axis GaN nanowires: Crystallographic, stoichiometric, and detection efficiency aspects
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 11/13/2013
Authors: Norman A Sanford, David R Diercks, Brian Gorman, R Kirchofer, Kristine A Bertness, Matthew David Brubaker
Abstract: The field evaporation behavior of c-axis GaN nanowires was explored in two different laser-pulsed atom probe tomography (APT) instruments. Transmission electron microscopy imaging before and after atom probe tomography analysis was used to assist in ...

7. 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

8. Broad Band Optical Properties of Large Area Monolayer CVD Molybdenum Disulfide
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 11/21/2014
Authors: wei li, Glen Birdwell, Matin Amani, Yi-Hsien Lee, Ling Xi, Xuelei Liang, Lianmao Peng, Curt A Richter, Kong Jing, David J Gundlach, Nhan V Nguyen

9. 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 ...

Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1200-10
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/14/2015
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Jeremiah W Woodcock, Keana C K Scott
Abstract: FOREWORD This NIST Special Publication (SP) is one in a series of NIST SPs that address research needs articulated in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy published in 2011 [1]. This ...
