121. Three dimensional aspects of droplet coalescence during dropwise condensation on superhydrophobic surfaces
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 8/24/2011
Authors: Konrad Rykaczewski, John Henry j Scott, Sukumar Rajauria, W Robert Ashurst, Jeff Chinn, Amy Chinn, Wanda Jones
Abstract: We report formation of nano-to-microscale satellite droplets in the geometrical shadow of high contact angle primary drops during dropwise water condensation on a nanostructured superhydrophobic surface. The primary drops contribute to the heat tran ...

122. Three-dimensional Nanometrology with TSOM Optical Method
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 12/10/2011
Author: Ravikiran Attota
Abstract: Through-focus scanning optical microscopy (TSOM) is a new metrology method that achieves 3D nanoscale measurement sensitivity using conventional optical microscopes; measurement sensitivities are comparable to what is typical when using scatterometry ...

125. Tumor Necrosis Factor Interaction with Gold Nanoparticles
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 3/14/2012
Authors: De-Hao D. Tsai, Sherrie R. Elzey, Frank W DelRio, Robert I. MacCuspie, Suvajyoti S. Guha, Michael Russel Zachariah, Athena M Keene, Jeffrey D Clogston, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: We report on a systematic investigation of molecular conjugation of tumor necrosis factor protein-α (TNF) onto gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and the subsequent binding behavior to its antibody (anti-TNF). We employ a combination of physical and spe ...

126. UV-induced photochemical transformations of citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 9/14/2012
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Robert I. MacCuspie, Kate L Klein, D Howard Fairbrother, Richard D Holbrook
Abstract: Due to the increasing use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in consumer products, it is essential to understand how variables, such as light exposure, may change the physical and chemical characteristics of AgNP suspensions. To this end, the effect o ...

128. Ultrasonic Dispersion of Nanoparticles for Environmental, Health and Safety Assessment--Issues and Recommendations
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 11/30/2010
Authors: Julian S. Taurozzi, Vincent A Hackley, Mark R. Wiesner
Abstract: A common approach for the study of the environmental and biological interactions of nanomaterials relies on the ultrasonic disruption of powders to obtain nanoparticle suspensions. Yet, the widespread and inconsistent use of ultrasonic treatment acro ...

130. ,Real-worldŠ precision, bias, and between-laboratory variation for surface area measurement of a titanium dioxide nanomaterial in powder form
Topic: Characterization, Nanometrology, and Nanoscale Measurements
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Vincent A Hackley, Aleksandr B. Stefaniak
Abstract: Accurate characterization of nanomaterial properties is a critical component of any nanotoxicology testing strategy. Data that describes the performance of various laboratories to measure the characteristics of the same nanomaterial is scarce. We c ...
