351. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Materials Science
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 ...

352. Structural Study of Ba^d11^Fe^d8^Ti^d9^O^d41^ by X-Ray Diffraction
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/1/2000
Authors: T Siegrist, C Svensson, Terrell A Vanderah, Robert S. Roth
Abstract: The crystal structure of Ba^d11^Fe^d8^Ti^d9^O^d41^ was determined using single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction nethods. This new phase crystallizes in the hexagonal space group P6^d3^/mmc (No 194) (a=5.7506(3) , c=61.413(2) ; Z=2; Pcalc=5.75 g/ ...

353. Structural changes during the formation of gold single atom chains: stability criteria and electronic structure
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 6/17/2010
Authors: Francesca M Tavazza, Lyle E Levine, Anne M. Chaka
Abstract: Under tensile deformation, Au nanowires (NWs) elongate to form single atom chains via a series of intermediate structural transformations. These intermediate structures are investigated using semistatic density functional theory (DFT), with particu ...

354. Structure and Dynamics Studies of Concentrated Micrometer-Sized Colloidal Suspensions
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/7/2013
Authors: Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Lyle E Levine, Jan Ilavsky, Gabrielle Gibbs Long
Abstract: We present an experimental study of the structural and dynamical properties of concentrated suspensions of a series of different sized polystyrene microspheres dispersed in glycerol for volume fraction concentrations between 10 % and 20 %. The static ...

355. Structure and Microwave Dielectric Properties in the x Ca^d2^AlNbO^d6^: (1-x) Ca^d3^Nb^d2^O^d8^ System
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 2/1/2000
Authors: Julia Y. Chan, Terrell A Vanderah, Robert S. Roth, Winnie K Wong-Ng, B A Reisner, Richard G. Geyer
Abstract: The structure and dielectric properties of bulk ceramics in the xCa2AlNbO6: (1-x)Ca3Nb2O8 system were studied. Ca2AlNbO6 (P21/n, a = 5.3785(1) , b = 5.4158(1) , c = 7.6259(1) , b = 89.93(1)o) is a double perovskite with structure similar to CaTiO3 ...

356. Structure and Stability of SnO2 Nanocrystals and Surface-Bound Water Species
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 5/8/2013
Authors: Rick L Paul, Hsiu-Wen Wang, David J Wesolowski, Thomas E Proffen, Lucus Vicek, Wei Wang, Lawrence F Allard, Alexander I. Kolesnikov, Mikhail Feygenson, Lawrence M. Anovitz
Abstract: The structure of SnO2 nanoparticles (avg. 5 nm diameter) with a few layers of water on the surface has been elucidated by atomic pair distribution function (PDF) methods using in situ neutron total scattering data and molecular dynamics (MD) simulati ...

357. Structure stability and electronic transport of gold nanowires on BeO (0001) surface
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 7/12/2013
Authors: Shmuel Barzilai, Francesca M Tavazza, Lyle E Levine
Abstract: Gold nanowire chains are considered a good candidate for nanoelectronics devices since they exhibit remarkable structural and electrical properties. For practical engineering devices, -wurtzite BeO may be a useful platform for supporting the ...

358. Studying Long-term Performance of a Nano-ZnO filled Waterborne Polyurethane Coating using Spectroscopies and Microscopies
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 9/9/2009
Authors: Xiaohong Gu, Dongmei Zhe, Stephanie S Watson, Guodong Chen, Minhua Zhao, Paul E Stutzman, Deborah L Stanley, Tinh Nguyen, Joannie W Chin, Jonathan W. Martin
Abstract: Although inorganic UV absorbers such as zinc oxide (ZnO) and cerium oxide (CeO2) exhibit numerous advantages compared to organic UV absorbers, the mechanisms of how these nanoparticles affect the long-term performance of polymeric coatings are less t ...

359. Subsolidus Phase Equilibria and Crystal Chemistry in the System BaO-TiO^d2^-Ta^d2^O^d5^
Topic: Materials Science
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Terrell A Vanderah, Robert S. Roth, T Siegrist, W Febo, J. M. Loezos, Winnie K Wong-Ng
Abstract: Subsolidus phase relations have been determined for the BaO: TiO^d2^Ta^d2^O^d5^ system. Approximately 100 specimens were prepared in air at temperatures near but below the solidus (1275 C to 1500 C). For the binary BaO: Ta^d2^O^d5^ subsystem, the ...
