Author: Calvin Chan

22. Organic Electronics: Challenges and Opportunities
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 3/31/2010
Author: Calvin Chan

23. Energy dissipation of highly charged ions on Al oxide films
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 3/3/2010
Authors: Joshua M Pomeroy, Russell Lake, C E Sosolik
Abstract: Slow highly charged ions carry a large amount of potential energy that can be dissipated within femtoseconds upon interaction with a surface. HCI-insulator collisions result in high sputter yields and surface nano-feature creation due to strong co ...

24. Effect of Surface Modes on Photon Propagation through Dielectric Bandgaps
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 10/28/2009
Authors: Natalia Malkova, Sergey V Polyakov, Alan L Migdall, Garnett W Bryant
Abstract: We investigate the Hartman saturation effect of photons traveling through barriers created by bandgaps of multilayer stacks. In particular, we investigate theoretically the recently observed jumps in photon transversal times due to adding a single l ...

25. Observing the Quantization of Zero Mass Carriers in Graphene
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 5/15/2009
Authors: Joseph A Stroscio, Gregory M. Rutter, D. L. Miller, K. Kubista, W. A. de Heer, Phillip N. First
Abstract: Application of a magnetic field to conductors causes the charge carriers to circulate in cyclotron orbits with quantized energies called Landau levels (LLs). These are equally spaced in normal metals and two-dimensional electron gases. In graphene, ...

26. Striped Domains at the Pentacene:C^d60^ Interface
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 1/12/2009
Authors: Dan B. Dougherty, W Jin, J Cullen, J Reutt-Robey, Steven W Robey
Abstract: STM observations of the initial growth stages of the first layer of pentacene on a monolayer film of C60 on Ag(111) are presented. Pentacene films nucleate and grow with molecules standing up at the Pentacene:C60 interface similar to the well known ...

27. Variable Temperature Scanning Tunneling Microscopy of Pentacene Monolayer and Bilayer Phases on Ag(111)
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 12/25/2008
Authors: Dan B. Dougherty, Jim Wei, William Cullen, Janice Reutt-Robey, Steven W Robey
Abstract: Pentacene deposited onto a Ag(111) surface at 300 K is studied using scanning tunneling microscopy at temperatures of 300 K and 50 K.  At 300 K, ordered pentacene structures nucleate at Ag step edges (<i>Phys. Rev. B</i>  <b>2005 ...

28. Thermally Assisted Atom Transfer on Surfaces
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 2/1/2006
Author: John William Gadzuk
Abstract: The low-temperature rates for site-to-site transfer of single atoms and molecules adsorbed on surfaces have been determined in recent scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) studies within the temperature regime where the dominant transfer mechanism chan ...

29. Structure of Polystyrene at the Interface With Various Liquids
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 9/4/2004
Authors: Clayton S. Yang, P T. Wilson, Lee J Richter
Abstract: Vibrationally resonant sum frequency generation (VR-SFG) is used to determine the structure of the phenyl side groups of deuterated polystyrene at the liquid/solid interface for the nonsolvent liquids: hexane, methanol, ethanol, glycerol, and water. ...

30. Surface Sensitivity of Auger-Electron Spectroscopy and X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 8/9/1999
Authors: Cedric John Powell, E Jablonski, I Tilinin, David R. Penn
Abstract: A convenient measure of surface sensitivity in Auger-electron spectroscopy (AES) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) is the mean escape depth (MED). If the effects of elastic-electron scattering are neglected, the MED is equal to the electron ...
