1. Non-contact Conductance Measurement of Nanosize Objects using Reasonant Cavity
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 5/15/2014
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Nathan Daniel Orloff, Oleg A Kirillov
Abstract: A cavity perturbation method is used to determine conductance of small volume nano-carbon materials. These are the building blocks of nanostructured materials and devices, and therefore their electrical characteristics are important in the materials ...

2. Storage Wars: How citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions are affected by not-so-trivial decisions
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 3/21/2014
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Anne B Rohlfing, Katrice A Lippa, Robert I. MacCuspie, Amy Hemmati, Richard D Holbrook
Abstract: A critical but often overlooked component of silver nanoparticle (AgNPs) suspensions involves their behavior following short- and long-term storage. The current study investigates the integrity of citrate-capped AgNP suspensions, nominally 20 nm in ...

3. Steering Acoustically Propelled Nanowire Motors towards Cells in a Biologically Compatible Environment using Magnetic Fields
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 12/10/2013
Authors: Suzanne Ahmed, Wei Wang, Lamar O. Mair, Robert D. Fraleigh, Sixing Li, Luz Angelica Castro, Mauricio Hoyos, Tony Jun Huang, Thomas E. Mallouk
Abstract: The recent discovery of fuel-free propulsion of nanomotors using acoustic energy has provided a new avenue for using nanomotors in biocompatible media. Crucial to the application of nanomotors in biosensing and biomedical applications is the ability ...

4. Strong Casimir force reduction by metallic surface nanostructuring
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
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 ...

5. Visualization of phase evolution in model organic photovoltaic structures via energy-filtered transmission electron microscopy
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 8/9/2013
Authors: Andrew A Herzing, Hyun W. Ro, Christopher Soles, Dean M DeLongchamp
Abstract: The morphology of the active layer in an organic photovoltaic bulk-heterojunction device is controlled by the extent and nature of phase separation during processing. Herein, we have examined the effects of fullerene crystallinity in the most wi ...

6. Structure stability and electronic transport of gold nanowires on BeO (0001) surface
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
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 ...

7. Resonant Microwave Absorption in Thermally Deposited Au Nanoparticle Films Near Percolation Coverage
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 6/19/2013
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Jack F Douglas, Oleg A Kirillov, Fred Sharifi, James Alexander Liddle
Abstract: We observe a resonant transition in microwave absorption in thin thermally deposited Au nanoparticle films near the geometrical percolation transition pc where the films exhibit a ,fractal‰ heterogeneous geometry. The absorption of incident microwa ...

8. ,Real-worldŠ precision, bias, and between-laboratory variation for surface area measurement of a titanium dioxide nanomaterial in powder form
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 6/1/2013
Authors: Vincent A Hackley, Aleksandr B. Stefaniak
Abstract: Accurate characterization of nanomaterial properties is a critical component of any nanotoxicology testing strategy. Data that describes the performance of various laboratories to measure the characteristics of the same nanomaterial is scarce. We c ...

9. Microwave Conductance of Semicontinuous Metallic Films from Coplanar Waveguide Scattering Parameters
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 5/6/2013
Authors: Jan Obrzut, Oleg A Kirillov
Abstract: Conductance of thin semicontinuous metallic films is measured in coplanar waveguide configuration at frequencies of 100 MHz to 20 GHz. The presented model of the microwave network correlates the experimental scattering parameters (S11) and (S21) with ...

10. Synapsable quadruplex-mediated fibers
Topic: Nanostructured Materials
Published: 5/3/2013
Authors: Veronika A Szalai, Miguel Angel Mendez
Abstract: We have fabricated and characterized a novel DNA based nanofiber created by synergistic self-assembly of guanine quadruplex (Hoogsteen base pairing) and double-stranded DNA (Watson-Crick base pairing). The assembly of our nanofibers occurs in several ...
