Superhydrophobic Carbon Nanotube Forests
The present study demonstrates the creation of a stable, superhydrophobic surface using the nanoscale roughness inherent in a vertically aligned carbon nanotube forest together with a thin, conformalExpand
Determination of mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes and vertically aligned carbon nanotube forests using nanoindentation
Abstract Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNT) have been a recent subject of intense investigation due to the numerous potential applications of VACNTs ranging from field emission and vacuumExpand
Initiated Chemical Vapor Deposition (iCVD) of Poly(alkyl acrylates): A Kinetic Model
In a two-part investigation, an experimental study and a kinetic model analysis of the initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) of alkyl acrylate polymers are described. In this second part, aExpand
Initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) of copolymer thin films
Initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) represents a novel hot-wire CVD variant for producing copolymer thin films. iCVD copolymerization was characterized by a conventional liquid-phase freeExpand
Polymeric nanocoatings by hot-wire chemical vapor deposition (HWCVD)
Hot-wire chemical vapor deposition (HWCVD) of polymers affords the ability to coat objects of complex shape and nanoscale features. Using hot filaments to drive the gas phase chemistry has enabledExpand
Initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) of polymeric nanocoatings
Initiated chemical vapor deposition of polymers (iCVD) is a process similar to hot-wire CVD (HWCVD) in which a free-radical initiating species is employed to greatly increase the growth rate whileExpand
Particle functionalization and encapsulation by initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD)
Initiated chemical vapor deposition (iCVD) represents a novel CVD method for functionalization and encapsulation of particle substrates with polymeric materials. Three demonstrations of iCVD coatingsExpand
Structure and Morphology of Fluorocarbon Films Grown by Hot Filament Chemical Vapor Deposition
Hexafluoropropylene oxide (HFPO) flow rate and filament preconditioning time were found to strongly influence the structure and morphology of fluorocarbon films grown by hot filament chemical vaporExpand
Molecular Design of Fluorocarbon Film Architecture by Pulsed Plasma Enhanced and Pyrolytic Chemical Vapor Deposition
Pulsed plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (pulsed PECVD) and pyrolytic chemical vapor deposition (pyrolyric CVD) of fluorocarbon films from hexafluoropropylene oxide (HFPO) have demonstratedExpand
