Here, we present the results of the resistive response of tungsten trioxide nanowire (mat-like, nanowire networks) and nanoparticle thin films subjected to N 2 O gas in the temperature range of 373–773 K. The nanowire mats exhibited an order of magnitude higher response in the resistivity change compared to that of nanoparticle films at temperatures above(More)
Rich Internet Applications (RIA) represent the next transition in the evolution of web applications; they promise the richness, interactivity and usability lacking in many of today' s web applications. As with any technological transition, this implies that there are new opportunities to be explored and new challenges to be negotiated. To maximize the(More)
Functionalizing nanoparticle surfaces is essential for achieving homogeneous dispersions of monodisperse particles in polymer nanocomposites for successful utilization in engineering applications. Functionalization reduces the surface energy of the nanoparticles, thereby limiting the tendency to agglomerate. Moreover, reactive groups on the surface can also(More)
