21. 2013 ITRS Metrology Roadmap
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 4/15/2014
Authors: Alain C. Diebold, Ndubuisi George Orji
Abstract: In 2013 the ITRS Metrology Technical Working Group worked on updating the text and tables of the metrology chapter. New additions include a section on 3D nanometrology, a revised lithography metrology table, and an updated Interconnect section. The d ...

22. Establishing an upper bound on contact resistivity of ohmic contacts to n-GaN nanowires
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Paul Timothy Blanchard, Kristine A Bertness, Todd E Harvey, Norman A Sanford
Abstract: Contact resistivity {rho}^dc^ is an important figure of merit in evaluating and improving the performance of electronic and optoelectronic devices. Due to the small size, unique morphology, and uncertain transport properties of semiconductor nano ...

23. Storage Wars: How citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions are affected by not-so-trivial decisions
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 3/21/2014
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Anne B Rohlfing, Katrice A Lippa, Robert I. MacCuspie, Amy Hemmati, Richard D Holbrook
Abstract: A critical but often overlooked component of silver nanoparticle (AgNPs) suspensions involves their behavior following short- and long-term storage. The current study investigates the integrity of citrate-capped AgNP suspensions, nominally 20 nm in ...

24. Controlled Formation and Characterization of Dithiothreitol-Conjugated Gold Nanoparticle Clusters
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 3/5/2014
Authors: De-Hao D. Tsai, Tae Joon Cho, Frank W DelRio, Justin M Gorham, Jiwen Zheng, Jiaojie Tan, Michael Russel Zachariah, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: We report a systematic study of the controlled formation of discrete-size gold nanoparticle clusters (GNCs) by interaction with the reducing agent dithiothreitol (DTT). Asymmetric-flow field flow fractionation and electrospray differential mobility a ...

25. Determination of nanoparticle surface coatings and nanoparticle Purity using microscale thermogravimetric analysis analysis
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 1/8/2014
Authors: Elisabeth Mansfield, Christopher Michael Poling, Jenifer L. (Jenifer) Blacklock, Katherine M Tyner
Abstract: The use of nanoparticles in some applications (i.e., nanomedical, nanofiltration or nanoelectronic) requires small-scale samples with well-known purities and composition. In addition, when nanoparticles are introduced into complex environments ( ...

26. Development of a conceptual framework for evaluation of nanomaterials release from nanocomposites: environmental and toxicological implications
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 1/2/2014
Authors: Jame Ging, Raul Tejerina-Anton, Girish Ramakrishnan, Mark Nielsen, Kyle Murphy, Justin M Gorham, Tinh Nguyen, Alexander Orlov
Abstract: Despite the fact that nanomaterials are considered potentially hazardous in a freely dispersed form, they are often considered safe when encapsulated into a polymer matrix. However, systematic research to confirm the abovementioned paradigm is lackin ...

27. Assembly and evaluation of a pyroelectric detector bonded to vertically aligned multiwalled carbon nanotubes over thin silicon
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 11/20/2013
Authors: John H Lehman, Evangelos Theocharous, Savva Theocharous
Abstract: A novel pyroelectric detector consisting of a vertically aligned nanotube array on thin silicon (VANTA/Si) bonded to a 60 μm thick crystal of LiTaO^d3^ has been fabricated. The performance of the VANTA/Si-coated pyroelectric detector was evaluat ...

28. Atom probe tomography evaporation behavior of C-axis GaN nanowires: Crystallographic, stoichiometric, and detection efficiency aspects
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
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 ...

29. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 9/27/2013
Authors: Francesco Intravaia, Stefan T. Koev, Il Woong Jung, Albert A. Talin, Paul S Davids, Ricardo Decca, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Diego A. R. Dalvit, Daniel Lopez
Abstract: The Casimir force is a quantum-mechanical interaction arising from vacuum fluctuations of the electromagnetic (EM) field and is technologically significant in micro- and nanomechanical systems. Despite rapid progress in nanophotonics, the goal of e ...

30. Generalized Tabletop EUV Coherent Diffractive Imaging in a Transmission Geometry
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 9/11/2013
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Bosheng Zhang, Matthew Seaberg, Daniel Adams, Dennis Gardner, Elizabeth Shanblatt, Henry C. Kapteyn, Margaret M. Murnane
Abstract: We demonstrate the first generalized tabletop EUV coherent microscope that can image extended, non-isolated, non-periodic, objects. By implementing keyhole coherent diffraction imaging with curved mirrors and a tabletop high harmonic source, we demon ...
