2. Electronic Enhancement of the Exciton Coherence Time in Charged Quantum Dots
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 10/19/2015
Authors: Galan A Moody, Corey Alexander McDonald, Ari D Feldman, Todd E Harvey, Richard P Mirin, Kevin Lawrence Silverman
Abstract: Minimizing decoherence due to coupling of a quantum system to its fluctuating environment is at the forefront of quantum information and photonics research. Nature sets the ultimate limit, however, given by the strength of the system‰s coupling t ...

3. Nanoelectronic Structural Information with Scanning Probe Microscopes
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 6/14/2015
Authors: Joseph J Kopanski, Lin You, Jungjoon Ahn, Yaw S Obeng
Abstract: Scanning probe microscope (SPM) based methods to obtain subsurface structural information about nano-structured materials are described. A test structure chip containing structures to produce various surface electric field gradients, spatially varyin ...

4. Homogeneous Linewidth Narrowing of the Charged Exciton via Nuclear Spin Screening in an InAs/GaAs Quantum Dot Ensemble
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 11/18/2014
Authors: Galan A Moody, Mingming M. Feng, Corey Alexander McDonald, Richard P Mirin, Kevin Lawrence Silverman
Abstract: In semiconductor quantum dots, the electron hyperfine interaction with the nuclear spin bath is the leading source of spin decoherence at cryogenic temperature. Using high-resolution two-color differential transmission spectroscopy, we demonstra ...

5. Non-contact Conductance Measurement of Nanosize Objects using Reasonant Cavity
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Nathan D Orloff, Oleg A Kirillov
Abstract: A cavity perturbation method is used to determine conductance of small volume nano-carbon materials. These are the building blocks of nanostructured materials and devices, and therefore their electrical characteristics are important in the materials ...

6. Storage Wars: How citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions are affected by not-so-trivial decisions
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
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 ...
