Unlike graphene, the existence of bandgaps (1-2 eV) in the layered semiconductor molybdenum disulphide, combined with mobility enhancement by dielectric engineering, offers an attractive possibility of using single-layer molybdenum disulphide field-effect transistors in low-power switching devices. However, the complicated process of fabricating(More)
The electrochemical oxidation of formic acid was studied by the tip generation-substrate collection (TG-SC) mode of scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM), extending the number of applications of SECM in electrocatalysis. Formic acid was generated at a Hg on Au ultramicroelectrode (UME) tip by reduction of CO(2) in a 0.1 M KHCO(3) solution saturated(More)
New utperience with the operation of the SLC Arcs is described. Each of these Arcs consists of sequential second-order achromats. Initial measurements showed that the betatron phase advances were systematically offset from the design values. This effect, combined with the abrupt rolls of the achro-mats needed to follow the local terrain, led to strong(More)
This work presents characteristics of Pt deposits on Au(111) obtained by the use of spontaneous deposition and investigated by electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy (EC-STM). On such prepared and STM characterized Au(111)/Pt surfaces, we studied electrocatalytic oxidation of formic acid and methanol. We show that the first monatomic layer of Pt(More)
Silicon/carbon (Si/C) nanocomposites have recently received much attention as Li-ion battery negative electrodes due to their mutual synergetic effects in capacity and mechanical integrity. The contribution of Si to the total capacity of the Si/C nanocomposites determines their structural efficiency. Herein, we report on a multi-layered, one-dimensional(More)
Dithiolate-modified multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) adsorb selectively on the self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of alkanethiols on a Au surface: the long dithiolates attached to the MWCNTs anchor the massive MWCNTs onto the Au surface by replacing the shorter thiolates of SAMs.
We report on the synergetic effects of silicon (Si) and BaTiO3 (BTO) for applications as the anode of Li-ion batteries. The large expansion of Si during lithiation was exploited as an energy source via piezoelectric BTO nanoparticles. Si and BTO nanoparticles were dispersed in a matrix consisting of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) using a high-energy(More)
A morphological variation of Au(111) covered with irreversibly adsorbed Sb was investigated with cyclic voltammetry and EC-STM. At open circuit potential (approximately 0.0 V vs a Ag/AgCl reference electrode), the oxygenated Sb layers were formed as an island on the wide terraces and a terrace at the step edges of Au(111). The ultimate morphology at the(More)
This work presents formic acid oxidation on Pt deposits on Au nanoparticles dispersed on Vulcan XC-72R. The Pt deposits were produced using spontaneous deposition method contacting the Au nanoparticles with solutions containing Pt complex ions in various concentrations. The Pt deposits were characterized using CO stripping coulometry, X-ray photoelectron(More)
The atomic arrangements inside Ru and Os nanoislands spontaneously deposited on Pt(111) electrode surface were observed with electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy. The surperlattice of the pristine Ru nanodeposits is (square root of 3 x square root of 3)R30 degrees -RuO+. Upon reduction, the Ru nanodeposits are compressed to a uniaxially(More)
