1. 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 ...

2. 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 ...

3. 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 ...

4. Mechanical and thermal properties of nanomaterials at sub-50nm dimensions characterized using coherent EUV beams
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 4/21/2015
Authors: Justin M Shaw, Kathleen Hoogeboom-Pot, Jorge Hernandez-Charpak, Henry Kapteyn, Margaret Murnane, Damiano Nardi
Abstract: Coherent extreme ultraviolet beams from tabletop high harmonic generation offer several revolutionary capabilities for observing nanoscale systems on their intrinsic length and time scales. By launching and monitoring hypersonic acoustic waves in suc ...

5. 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 ...

6. 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 ...

7. Challenges, Strategies and Opportunities for Measuring Carbon Nanotubes within a Polymer Composites by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1200-10
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 3/14/2015
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Jeremiah W Woodcock, Keana C K Scott
Abstract: FOREWORD This NIST Special Publication (SP) is one in a series of NIST SPs that address research needs articulated in the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Strategy published in 2011 [1]. This ...

8. One-Pot, Bio-Inspired Coatings to Reduce the Flammability of Flexible Polyurethane Foams
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 2/27/2015
Authors: Rick D Davis, Yu-Chin Li, Michelle Rose Gervasio, Yeon Seok Kim
Abstract: In this manuscript, natural materials were combined into a single ,potŠ to produce flexible, highly fire resistant, and bioinspired coatings on flexible polyurethane foam (PUF). In one step, PUF was coated with a fire protective layer constructed ...

9. Materials Development for High Efficiency Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 1/1/2015
Authors: Adriana Eleni Lita, Varun Boehm Verma, Robert D Horansky, Jeffrey M Shainline, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) based on ultra-thin films have become the preferred technology for applications that require high efficiency single-photon detectors with high speed, high timing resolution, and low dark c ...

10. Particle-based simulation of nanoscale systems and materials
Topic: Nanomaterials
Published: 1/1/2015
Authors: Alexander Y Smolyanitsky, Vinod K Tewary
Abstract: This book chapter is focused on the introduction of molecular dynamics (MD) and molecular statics (MS), as well as some of their uses for studying the thermomechanical and (indirectly) electronic properties at the nanoscale. We first introduce th ...
