1. Impact of and correction for instrument sensitivity drift on nanoparticle size measurements by single-particle ICP-MS
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 2/8/2016
Authors: Hind El Hadri, Elijah J Petersen, Michael R Winchester
Abstract: Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) are already incorporated into numerous consumer products, and increasing product applications are expected in future years. To enable an understanding of potential risks associated with these products, it is important ...

2. Nanocatalyst shape and composition during nucleation of single-walled carbon nanotubes
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 12/7/2015
Authors: Jose Gomez-Ballesteros, Juan Burgos, Pin Ann Lin, Renu Sharma, Perla Balbuena
Abstract: The dynamic evolution of nanocatalyst particle shape and carbon composition is examined through the initial stages of the single walled-carbon nanotubes chemical vapor deposition synthesis via classical reactive and ab initio molecular dynamics simul ...

3. Intrinsic Conductivity of Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene Sheets Having a Realistic Geometry
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 11/23/2015
Authors: Luis Fernando Vargas Lara, Ahmed M. Hassan, Edward Joseph Garboczi, Jack F Douglas
Abstract: The addition of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene sheets (GSs) into polymeric materials such as epoxy resins can greatly enhance the conductivity and alter the electromagnetic response of the resulting nanocomposite material. The extent of thes ...

4. Mid-infrared spectroscopy beyond the diffraction limit via direct measurement of photothermal effect
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/30/2015
Authors: Aaron M. Katzenmeyer, Glenn E Holland, Jungseok Chae, Alan H Band, Kevin Kjoller, Andrea Centrone
Abstract: An atomic force microscope equipped with temperature sensitive probes was used to measure locally the photothermal effect induced by IR light absorption. This novel instrument opens a pathway to correlated topographical, chemical composition, and the ...

5. Metal-Dielectric-Metal Resonators with Deep Subwavelength Dielectric Layers Increase the Near-Field SEIRA Enhancement
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 9/24/2015
Authors: Jungseok Chae, Basudev Lahiri, John M Kohoutek, Glenn E Holland, Henri J Lezec, Andrea Centrone
Abstract: Plasmonic nanostructures presenting either structural asymmetry or metal-dielectric-metal (M-D-M) architecture are commonly used structures to increase the quality factor and the near-field confinement in plasmonic materials. This characteristic can ...

6. Infrared Imaging and Spectroscopy Beyond the Diffraction Limit
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 7/22/2015
Author: Andrea Centrone
Abstract: Progress in nanotechnology is enabled by and dependent on the availability of measurement methods with spatial resolution commensurate with nanomaterials‰ length scales. Chemical imaging techniques, such as scattering scanning near-field optical micr ...

7. Nondestructive measurement of the evolution of layer-specific mechanical properties in sub-10nm bilayer films
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 4/21/2015
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Kathleen Hoogeboom-Pot, Jorge Hernandez-Charpak, Henry Kapteyn, Margaret Murnane, Damiano Nardi
Abstract: ABSTRACT: We use short-wavelength extreme-ultraviolet light to independently measure the mechanical properties of disparate layers within a bilayer film with single-monolayer sensitivity. We show that in Ni/Ta nanostructured systems, while their dens ...

8. Multiscale Green‰s functions for modeling of nanomaterials: Bridging length and time scales
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/17/2015
Author: Vinod K Tewary
Abstract: Green's function gives the response of a system to a probe and is a powerful technique for solving a variety of problems in science and engineering. We describes a multiscale Green's function method for modeling nanomaterials at different length and ...

9. Beam broadening in transmission EBSD
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/16/2015
Authors: Robert R Keller, Katherine P. Rice, Mark Stoykovich
Abstract: Transmission electron backscatter diffraction (t-EBSD), also known as transmission electron forward scatter diffraction (t-EFSD) or transmission Kikuchi diffraction in the SEM (TKD-SEM), can provide significant improvements in spatial resolution ...

10. Effects of Thermal Rippling on the Frictional Properties of Free-Standing Graphene.
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/16/2015
Author: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky
Abstract: With use of simulated friction force microscopy, we study the effect of varying temperature on the frictional properties of suspended graphene. In contrast with the theory of thermally activated friction on the surfaces of three-dimensional mater ...
