In the quantum Hall regime, near integer filling factors, electrons should only be transmitted through spatially separated edge states. However, in mesoscopic systems, electronic transmission turns out to be more complex, giving rise to a large spectrum of magnetoresistance oscillations. To explain these observations, recent models put forward the theory(More)
We have developed a simple and reliable method for the fabrication of sub-10 nm wide nanogaps. The self-formed nanogap is based on the stoichiometric solid-state reaction between metal and silicon atoms during the silicidation process. The nanogap width is determined by the metal layer thickness. Our proposed method can produce symmetric and asymmetric(More)
By using coplanar waveguides, direct access to the dielectric properties of aqueous solutions of polystyrene beads with different diameters from 330 nm to 10 μm is provided. The relative variation of the transmission parameter with respect to water is monitored, ranging from [Formula: see text] obtained for a 9.5% solution with 330 nm diameter beads to ∼22%(More)
A simple scheme for single conducting polymer nanowire fabrication and device integration is presented. We discuss a combined top-down and bottom-up approach for the sequential, precise manufacture of vertical polyaniline nanowires. The method is scalable and can be applied on rigid as well as on flexible substrates. The kinetics of the template-confined(More)
Conductive polymers are a class of materials with vast potential for tomorrow's ultra-large-scale technologies as they combine structural and functional diversity with flexible synthesis and processing approaches. A missing component, with their subtle chemical structure, is reliable building at nanoscale. Here we report on the patterning of polyaniline, a(More)
