Fiber-shaped H-aggregates with lengths of up to 300 microm are synthesized by self-assembly of thiacyanine (TC) dye molecules in solution. Photoluminescence (PL) images and spatially resolved PL spectra of the fibers that are transferred onto a glass substrate reveal that the fibers act as single-mode optical waveguides that propagate PL in the range of 520(More)
We demonstrate the self-assembled formation of concentric quantum double rings with high uniformity and excellent rotational symmetry using the droplet epitaxy technique. Varying the growth process conditions can control each ring's size. Photoluminescence spectra emitted from an individual quantum ring complex show peculiar quantized levels that are(More)
DNA films showing highly homogeneous orientation of molecular chains were successfully prepared by drying a semidiluted solution in a horizontal magnetic field. Most of the molecular chain elements in the obtained film were found to be one-dimensionally oriented, as shown by X-ray diffraction, polarization microscopy, and linear dichroism spectroscopy.(More)
Phase manipulation between c(4x2) and p(2x2) on the Si(100) surface has been demonstrated at 4.2 K for the first time using a low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope. We have discovered that it is possible to change the c(4x2) surface into the p(2x2) surface, artificially, through a flip-flop motion of the buckling dimers by using a sample bias(More)
The composition dependence of the Yb valence and of the thermal expansion have been studied in the YbGa x Ge 2−x system. X-ray diffraction reveals that single-phased samples isostructural to YbGaGe are obtained in the range of 0.9 ≤ x ≤ 1.5. The magnetic susceptibility shows that the systems are almost nonmagnetic below room temperature, indicating a stable(More)
The magnetic field effects (MFEs) on photoinduced hydrogen abstraction reactions between benzophenone and thiophenol in an ionic liquid, N,N,N-trimethyl-N-propylammonium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl) imide (TMPA TFSI), were studied by a nanosecond laser flash photolysis technique under ultrahigh fields of up to 28 T. Extremely large and anomalous stepwise(More)
We have succeeded in preparation of novel composite films composed of chain-oriented DNA and the DNA-binding dyes aligned in specific orientation by drying the solution under a horizontal magnetic field. The dye-DNA composite films mostly showed linear dichroism, as revealed by polarized ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-VIS) and fluorescence anisotropy(More)
The molecular orientation of DNA membranes, which were prepared by subjecting diluted solution of salmon sperm DNA to a natural drying process, was examined. X-ray diffraction and polarization microscopy revealed that the dried membranes have zonal structures. Each zone shows different features in molecular orientation. In the outer zones formed at the(More)
We performed studies of the self-organization processes in nanoporous alumina membranes at initial and late stages of aluminum anodization by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). SEM observations indicated three stages in the self-organization of nanopores in alumina: (1) nucleation of random nanopores with a(More)
Novel composite films of chain-oriented DNA, which contain the DNA-binding dyes aligned in specific orientation, were successfully prepared by drying the solution under a horizontal magnetic field. Most of the dye-DNA composite films showed linear dichroism, as revealed by polarized ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) spectroscopy. The intercalators, ethidium(More)
