Desorption mass spectrometry has undergone significant improvements since the original experiments were performed more than 90 years ago. The most dramatic change occurred in the early 1980s with the introduction of an organic matrix to transfer energy to the analyte. This reduces ion fragmentation but also introduces background ions from the matrix. Here(More)
The electrochemical cathodic electrografting reaction, previously demonstrated on bulk silicon surfaces, can be patterned on the nanoscale utilizing conducting probe atomic force microscopy (CP-AFM). Alkyne electrografting is a particularly useful chemical technique since it leads to direct covalent attachment of conjugated alkynes to silicon. In addition,(More)

A novel white light-promoted reaction using photoluminescent nanocrystalline silicon enables the hydrosilylation of alkenes and alkynes, providing stabilization of the porous silicon without significant loss of the photoemissive qualities of the material. Photopatterning and lithographic fabrication of isolated porous silicon structures are made possible.(More)
Line patterns produced by lamellae- and cylinder-forming block copolymer (BCP) thin films are of widespread interest for their potential to enable nanoscale patterning over large areas. In order for such patterning methods to effectively integrate with current technologies, the resulting patterns need to have low defect densities, and be produced in a short(More)

Electrostatic layer-by-layer assembly was the basis for the synthesis of multilayer nanorod/polymer composite films. Cationic and water-soluble CdSe nanorods (NRs) were synthesized and partnered with anionic polymers including poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate) (PSS) and two polythiophene-based photoactive polymers, sodium(More)
H eterogeneous photocatalysis is of broad interest in materials chemistry and materials science, particularly with the rapid growth of research attention being directed toward energy-related applications, pollution mitigation, and other related areas of environmental impact. 1 A literature survey reveals more than 9000 papers with the word photocatalyst or(More)
