1. Invited Article: Autonomous Assembly of Atomically Perfect Nanostructures Using a Scanning Tunneling Microscope
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 12/1/2014
Authors: Joseph A Stroscio, Robert Celotta, Stephen B. Balakirsky, Aaron P Fein, Frank M. (Frank M.) Hess, Gregory Rutter
Abstract: A major goal of nanotechnology is to develop the capability to arrange matter at will by placing individual atoms at desired locations in a predetermined configuration to build a nanostructure with specific properties or function. The scanning tunne ...

2. Nanomanufacturing Concerns about Measurements made in the SEM Part III: Vibration and Drift
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 12/1/2014
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar, Petr Cizmar
Abstract: Many advanced manufacturing processes employ scanning electron microscopes (SEM) for on-line critical measurements for process and quality control. This is the third of a series of papers discussing various causes of measurement uncertainty in scanne ...

3. Nanomanufacturing Metrology for Cellulosic Nanomaterials: an Update
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 12/1/2014
Author: Michael T Postek
Abstract: The development of the metrology and standards for advanced manufacturing of cellulosic nanomaterials (or basically, wood-based nanotechnology) is imperative to the success of this rising economic sector. Wood-based nanotechnology is a revolutionary ...

4. The Economic Impacts of Early Stage Consensus Standards Development: A Case Study of Nanotechnology Documentary Standards
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 11/30/2014
Authors: David P. Leech, John T. Scott
Abstract: This economic impact assessment focuses on documentary standards development for nanotechnology. Nanotechnology developments and applications are just emerging; thus, the standards studied in this report are regarded as ,early-stageŠ or ,proactiveŠ s ...

5. Nanoparticle size determination using optical microscopes
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/27/2014
Authors: Ravikiran Attota, Richard J Kasica, Premsagar Purushotham Kavuri, Hyeong Gon Kang, Lei Chen
Abstract: We present a simple method for size determination of nanoparticles using conventional optical microscopes. The method, called through-focus scanning optical microscopy (TSOM), makes use of the four-dimensional optical information collected at differe ...

6. A pilot interlaboratory comparison of protocols that simulate aging of nanocomposites and detect released fragments
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 10/1/2014
Authors: Wendel Wohlleben, Deborah L Stanley, Justin M Gorham, Li Piin Sung, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: The safe use of nanocomposites depends, in part, on a good understanding of the fate of nanofillers throughout the nanocomposite,s lifecycle. Various modifications of ISO weathering protocols have been proposed to assess what is released and at which ...

7. Photoelectron spectroscopy of wet and gaseous samples through electron transparent graphene membranes
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 9/22/2014
Authors: Jurgen Kraus, Robert Reichelt, Sebastian Gunther, Luca Gregoratti, Matteo Amati, Maya Kiskinova, Alexander Yulaev, Ivan Vlassiouk, Andrei A Kolmakov
Abstract: Photoelectron spectroscopy (PES) and microscopy are highly demanded for exploring morphologically complex solid-gas and solid-liquid interfaces under realistic conditions but the very small electron mean free path inside the dense media imposes serio ...

8. Effects of Temperature on Surface Accumulation and Release of Silica Nanoparticles in an Epoxy Nanocoating Exposed to UV Radiation
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 6/16/2014
Authors: Chun-Chieh Tien, Ching-Hsuan Chang, Bernard Hao-Chih Liu, Deborah L Stanley, Savelas A Rabb, Lee Lijian Yu, Tinh Nguyen, Li Piin Sung
Abstract: Polymer nanocoatings are increasingly used outdoors and in harsh environments. However, because most common polymers degraded by the weathering elements, nanoparticles in polymer nanocoatings may be released into the environments. Such nanoparticle r ...

9. Multi-method analysis of multiwall carbon nanotube polymer nanocomposite samples after photodegradation
Topic: Nanotechnology
Published: 6/16/2014
Authors: Elijah J Petersen, Thomas Fung Lam, Justin M Gorham, Keana C K Scott, Christian John Long, Renu Sharma, Li Piin Sung, James Alexander Liddle, Tinh Nguyen
Abstract: Nanomaterials can be used as nanofillers to enhance the properties of polymeric materials. However, the effect of weathering on nanocomposites and the potential for nanomaterial release is not yet well understood. Multiple analytical methods are ne ...
