Highly Uniform Epitaxial ZnO Nanorod Arrays for Nanopiezotronics
The geometrical uniformity, the designable pattern, and the electrical properties make the presented nanorod arrays ideal candidates to be used in ZnO-based DC nanogenerator and in next-generation integrated piezoelectric nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS). Expand
Functionalized carbon nanotubes for pH sensors based on SERS
A pH sensor has been developed by realizing bimetallic-nanoparticle-decorated carbon nanotubes (CNTs); a single CNT is capable of measuring pH in its local vicinity continuously over the range of 5.6Expand
What is inside carbon nanohorn aggregates
Abstract Carbon nanohorn (CNH) aggregates are spherical with a diameter of ∼80 nm. There are thousands of protruding nanohorns at the periphery of each CNH aggregate. However, the interior structureExpand
Photon Stimulated Ion Desorption of Polymer Thin Films Following Core Excitation
We have studied the photon stimulated ion desorption of poly-isopropenyl-acetate (PiPAc) and poly-vinyl-acetate (PVAc) thin films from the viewpoint of site-specific bond scission. PiPAc is theExpand
Functionalization of carbon nanotubes with a pH-responsive molecule to produce a pH sensor.
Carbon nanotubes were functionalized with the ratiometric pH-responsive dye molecule 6,8-dihydroxy-1,3-pyrenedisulfonic acid disodium salt, which enabled them to indicate pH values over the range ofExpand
Study of benzene and toluene on Si( 1 1 1 )7×7 surface by scanning tunneling microscopy
Abstract The adsorption of benzene and toluene on Si(1 1 1)7×7 was investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy at 180 and 280 K. Significant differences in reactivity were observed among theExpand
Study of adsorption structure of benzene and toluene on Si(1 1 1)7×7 surfaces
Abstract The adsorption of benzene and toluene on Si(1 1 1)7 × 7 was investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and theoretical calculations. For both aromatic molecules, bright spots inExpand
Optimization of Interface Resistance between Carbon Nanotubes and Probe-Shaped Titanium Wire
We investigated the resistance at the interface between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and a probe-shaped titanium (Ti) wire upon annealing in vacuum. CNTs were attached to the end of the sharpened Ti wireExpand
A liquid composition containing dispersed diamond particles, production method thereof and use for producing an abrasive substance
Flussige Zusammensetzung, umfassend oxidierte und gereinigte Diamant-Partikel mit einem primaren Partikeldurchmesser von 1 bis 50 nm, wobei sich Hydroxylgruppen sowie Carboxylgruppen und/oderExpand
