Measured In-situ Mass Absorption Spectra for Nine Forms of Highly-absorbing Carbonaceous Aerosol

April 23, 2018
Christopher D. Zangmeister, Rian You, Elizabeth M. Lunny, Arne Jacobson, Mitchio Okumura, Michael R. Zachariah, James G. Radney
Mass absorption coefficient spectra were measured between λ = 500 nm and 840 nm for nine forms of highly-absorbing carbonaceous aerosol: five samples generated from gas-, liquid- and solid- fueled flames; spark-discharge fullerene soot; graphene and

Light Source Effects on Aerosol Photoacoustic Spectroscopy Measurements

October 6, 2016
James G. Radney, Christopher D. Zangmeister
Photoacoustic spectroscopy measurements of flame-generated soot aerosol coated with small amounts of water yielded absorption enhancements that were dependent on the laser used: quasi- continuous wave (Q-CW, ≈ 650 ps pulse duration and 78 MHz repetition

Packing density of rigid aggregates is independent of scale

May 14, 2014
Christopher D. Zangmeister, James G. Radney, Michael R. Zachariah
Large planetary seedlings, comets, microscale pharmaceuticals, and nanoscale soot particles are made from rigid, aggregated subunits that are compacted under low compression into larger structures spanning over 10 orders of magnitude in dimensional space

Dependence of Soot Optical Properties on Particle Morphology: Measurements and Model Comparisons

February 18, 2014
James Radney, Rian You, Xiaofei Ma, Joseph Conny, Michael R. Zachariah, Joseph T. Hodges, Christopher D. Zangmeister
We measure the mass-specific absorption and extinction cross sections for laboratory-generated soot aerosols. Two soot morphologies are investigated, both comprising fractal aggregates of nearly spherical monomers. The first type consists of monomer chains

Direct measurements of mass-specific optical cross sections of single component aerosol mixtures

July 22, 2013
James Radney, Xiaofei Ma, Keith A. Gillis, Michael R. Zachariah, Joseph T. Hodges, Christopher D. Zangmeister
The optical properties of atmospheric aerosols vary widely, being dependent upon particle composition, morphology and mixing state. This diversity and complexity of aerosols motivates measurement techniques that can discriminate and quantify a variety of

A Volcano Curve: Optimizing Methanol Electro-oxidation on Pt decorated Ru Nanoparticles

June 26, 2009
Christopher D. Zangmeister, Savelas A. Rabb, Du Bingchen, YuYe Tong
Controlled Pt adlayers were deposited on commercial Ru nanoparticles (NPs) using an industrially scalable one-pot ethylene glycol (EG) reduction based method and were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), electrochemical (EC) CO stripping voltammetry

Molecule induced interface states dominate charge transport in Si-alkyl-metal junctions

August 26, 2008
Lam H. Yu, Nadine E. Gergel-Hackett, Christopher D. Zangmeister, Christina A. Hacker, Curt A. Richter, James G. Kushmerick
Abstract. Semiconductor-molecule-metal junctions consisting of alkanethiol mono- layers self-assembled on both p+ and n¡ type highly doped Si(111)wires contacted with a 10 ¹m Au wire in a crossed-wire geometry are examined. Low temperature transport

Ultraviolet Photoemission Spectra of Para-Phenylene-Ethynylene Thiols Chemisorbed on Gold

January 1, 2008
Christopher D. Zangmeister, Roger D. van Zee, Steven W. Robey, N E. Gruhn, Yuxing Yao, J M. Tour
Photoemission spectra of para-phenylene-ethynylene thiols chemisorbed on gold have been measured. Four compounds were studied: 4,4'-bis(phenylethynyl)-benzenethiol, 4 (phenylethynyl)benzenethiol, 4-ethynylbenzenethiol, and benzenethiol. The spectra were

Energy-Level Alignment and Work Function Shifts for Thiol-Bound Monolayers of Conjugated Molecules Self-Assembled on Ag, Cu, Au, and Pt

July 1, 2007
Christopher D. Zangmeister, Laura B. Picraux, Roger D. van Zee, Yuxing Yao, J M. Tour
Photoemission spectra have been used to determine the energy-level alignment and work function of monolayers of 4,4'-bis-(phenylethynyl)benzenethiol, 2 naphthalene thiol, and 3-(naphthalen-2-yl)propane-1-thiol self-assembled on Ag, Cu, Au, and Pt. For each

Fermi Level Alignment and Electronic Levels in Molecular Wire Self-Assembled Monolayers on Au

October 1, 2004
Christopher D. Zangmeister, Steven W. Robey, Roger D. van Zee, Yuxing Yao, J M. Tour
A combination of one- and two-photon photoelectron spectroscopies are used to determine the electronic structure around the Fermi level for self-assembled monolayers of a prototypical molecular wire , 4,4 -(ethynylphenyl)-1-benzenethiol (C6H5-C≡C-C6H4-C≡C-
