Quantification of ligand packing density on gold nanoparticles using ICP-OES

February 18, 2012
Sherrie R. Elzey, De-Hao D. Tsai, Savelas A. Rabb, Lee L. Yu, Michael R. Winchester, Vincent A. Hackley
In this study, a prototypical thiolated organic ligand, 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA), was conjugated on gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), and packing density was measured on an ensemble-averaged basis using inductively coupled plasma optical emission

Improving the NIST High-Performance ICP-OES Methodology through Exact Matching

August 26, 2010
Michael R. Winchester, Therese A. Butler, Gregory C. Turk
High-Performance” (HP-)ICP-OES was developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) approximately a decade ago as a means of performing ICP OES analyses with relative expanded uncertainty on the order of 0.2 %, expressed at a level of

Characterization of SiGe Films for use as a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Microanalysis Reference material (RM 8905)

February 1, 2010
Ryna B. Marinenko, Shirley Turner, David S. Simons, Savelas A. Rabb, Rolf L. Zeisler, Lee L. Yu, Dale E. Newbury, Rick L. Paul, Nicholas W. Ritchie, Stefan D. Leigh, Michael R. Winchester, Lee J. Richter, Douglas C. Meier, Keana C. Scott, D Klinedinst, John A. Small
Bulk SiGe wafers cut from single-crystal boules and two SiGe thick films (4 m and 5 m thick) on Si wafers were evaluated with the electron probe microanalyzer for the extent of heterogeneity and composition for use as reference materials needed by the

Potential Primary Measurement Tool for the Quantification of DNA

May 1, 2009
Ryan G. Brennan, Savelas A. Rabb, Marcia J. Holden, Michael R. Winchester
An automated sample introduction system, utilizing a demountable direct injection high efficiency nebulizer (d DIHEN), is successfully incorporated for the first time with an inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES) for the

Certification of Beryllium Mass Fraction in SRM 1877 Beryllium Oxide Powder Using High-Performance Inductively-Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry with Exact Matching

February 11, 2009
Michael R. Winchester, Gregory C. Turk, Therese A. Butler, Thomas J. Oatts, Charles Coleman, Donald Nadratowski, Ritu Sud, Mark D. Hoover, Aleksandr B. Stefaniak
High-Performance Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (HP-ICP-OES) was used to certify the Be mass fraction in National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Standard Reference Material (SRM) 1877 Beryllium Oxide Powder. In order

Verification of a Gas Mask Calibrant

Radio-Frequency Glow Discharge Spectrometry A Critical Review

April 1, 2004
Michael R. Winchester, R Payling
This paper presents a critical review of analytical radio frequency glow discharge spectrometry (rf-GDS). The historical foundations of rf-GDS are described, and current knowledge of the fundamental physics of analytical rf glow discharges is discussed
