1. Effect of elastic deformation on frictional properties of few-layer graphene
Topic: Nanophysics
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 ...

2. Effects of disorder and internal dynamics on vortex wall propagation
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 5/26/2010
Authors: Hongki Min, Robert D McMichael, Michael J Donahue, Jacques Miltat, Mark D Stiles
Abstract: Experimental measurements of domain wall propagation are typically interpreted by comparison to ideal models that ignore the effects of extrinsic disorder and the internal dynamics of domain wall structures. Using micromagnetic simulations we study v ...

3. Effects of magnetism and electric field on the energy gap of bilayer graphene nanoflakes
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 1/13/2010
Author: Hongki Min
Abstract: We study the effect of magnetism and perpendicular external electric field strengths on the energy gap of length confined bilayer graphene nanoribbons (or nanobars) using a first principles density functional electronic structure method and a semi-lo ...

4. Electromagnetic Energy Density in Dispersive and Dissipative Media
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Frederico D. Nunes, Thiago Vasconcelos, Marcel Bezerra, John Weiner
Abstract: The description of the energy density associated with an electromagnetic field propagating through matter must treat two different phenomena: dispersion, the variation of the refractive index with frequency, and dissipation, the loss of field energy ...

5. Enhanced coupling between light and surface plasmons by nanostructured Fabry-Pérot resonator
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 9/26/2011
Authors: Brian S. Dennis, Vladimir A Aksyuk, Michael Haftel, Stefan T. Koev, Girsh Blumberg
Abstract: It is recognized that surface plasmons (SPs),which can be present on particulate, smooth, or corrugated metallic surfaces, have enormous potential in the fields of novel nano-optical and opto-electronic devices, as well as in spectroscopic, biologic ...

6. Friction imprint effect in mechanically cleaved BaTiO3 (001)
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 9/28/2014
Authors: Christian John Long, Daniel Ebeling, Santiago D. Solares, Rachel J. Cannara

7. Origin of Universal Optical Conductivity and Optical Stacking Sequence Identification in Multilayer Graphene
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 8/6/2009
Authors: Hongki Min, Allan H. MacDonald
Abstract: We predict that the optical conductivity of normal graphene multilayers is close to {sigma}^duni^=({pi}/2) e^u2^/h per layer over a broad range of frequencies. The origin of this behavior is an emergent chiral symmetry which is present in normal N-l ...

8. Response of block copolymer thin-film morphology to line-width roughness on a chemoepitaxial template
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 7/22/2014
Authors: Paul N. Patrone, Gregg M. Gallatin

9. Silicon Micromachines for Fun and Profit
Topic: Nanophysics
Published: 12/12/2012
Authors: David Bishop, Flavio Pardo, Cris Bolle, Randy Giles, Vladimir A Aksyuk
Abstract: Over the last decade or so a group of us, while working at Bell Labs, have been able to develop a large number of silicon micromachines for a wide range of applications. In this article, which is part of a special volume to celebrate the career of ...

10. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Nanophysics
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 ...
