11. Effect of elastic deformation on frictional properties of few-layer graphene
Topic: Surface Physics
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 ...

12. Nanoscale Friction: Measurement and Analysis
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 10/19/2011
Author: Rachel J. Cannara

13. Controlling Formation of Atomic Step Morphology on Micro-patterned Si (100)
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 8/9/2011
Authors: Kai Li, Pradeep Narayanan Namboodiri, Sumanth B. Chikkamaranahalli, Gheorghe Stan, Ravikiran (Ravikiran) Attota, Joseph Fu, Richard M Silver
Abstract: Micro scale features are fabricated on Si (100) surfaces using lithographic techniques and then thermally processed in an ultra high vacuum (UHV) environment. Samples are flash heated at 1200 °C and further annealed at 1050 °C for 18 hours. The surf ...

14. Damping phenomena in Co^d90^Fe^d10^/Ni multilayers and alloys
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 7/6/2011
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Hans T. Nembach, Thomas J Silva
Abstract: We used perpendicular ferromagnetic resonance to measure the damping parameter in Co^d90^Fe^d10^/Ni multilayers over a wide range of layer thicknesses. The magnetic anisotropy within this range varied from in-pane to out-of-plane. We measured (Co^d90 ...

Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 6/1/2011
Authors: Joshua M Pomeroy, Russell Lake, C E Sosolik
Abstract: The electrical conductance of magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ) devices whose ultra-thin aluminum oxide tunnel barrier was irradiated by highly charged ions (HCIs) increases linearly with the fluence of HCIs, while retaining a current-voltage relationsh ...

16. Optics contamination studies in support of high-throughput EUV lithography tools
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 3/25/2011
Authors: Shannon Bradley Hill, Fardina Asikin, Lee J Richter, Steven E Grantham, Charles S Tarrio, Thomas B Lucatorto, Sergiy Yulin, Mark Schurmann, Viatcheslav Nesterenko, Torsten Feigl
Abstract: We report on optics contamination rates induced by exposure to broad-bandwidth, high-intensity EUV radiation peaked near 8 nm in a new beamline at the NIST synchrotron. The peak intensity of 50 mW/mm2 allows extension of previous investigations of c ...

17. Atomistic Factors Governing Adhesion between Diamond, Amorphous Carbon, and Model Diamond Nanocomposite Surfaces
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 10/1/2010
Authors: Pamela L Piotrowski, Rachel J. Cannara, Guangtu Gao, Joseph J Urban, Robert W Carpick, Judith A Harrison
Abstract: Complementary atomic force microscopy (AFM) and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were conducted to determine the work of adhesion for diamond(111)(1x1) and diamond(001)(2x1) surfaces paired with other carbon-based materials. In the AFM experiments ...

18. Modifying electron transfer at the silicon-molecule interface using atomic tethers
Topic: Surface Physics
Published: 8/10/2010
Author: Christina Ann Hacker
Abstract: We present the correlation of the electronic properties at the semiconductor-molecule interface with the nature of the covalent attachment. The chemical state, monolayer structure, and electronic properties of aliphatic monolayers with Si-O, Si-C, a ...
