Self-Sorted, Aligned Nanotube Networks for Thin-Film Transistors
To find use in electronics, single-walled carbon nanotubes need to be efficiently separated by electronic type and aligned to ensure optimal and reproducible electronic properties. We report the… Expand
Sorted and aligned single-walled carbon nanotube networks for transistor-based aqueous chemical sensors.
Detecting trace amounts of analytes in aqueous systems is important for health diagnostics, environmental monitoring, and national security applications. Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are… Expand

A number of distinct β-amyloid (Aβ) variants or multimers have been implicated in Alzheimer's disease (AD), and antibodies recognizing such peptides are in clinical trials. Humans have natural… Expand
Nanomechanical Probing of Layered Nanoscale Polymer Films With Atomic Force Microscopy
The approach developed for the microindentation of layered elastic solids was adapted to analyze atomic force microscopy probing of ultrathin (1-100 nm-thick) polymer films on a solid substrate. The… Expand
Rationally Designed Turn Promoting Mutation in the Amyloid-β Peptide Sequence Stabilizes Oligomers in Solution
Enhanced production of a 42-residue beta amyloid peptide (Aβ42) in affected parts of the brain has been suggested to be the main causative factor for the development of Alzheimer's Disease (AD). The… Expand

Thin films of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are a viable nanomaterial for next generation sensors, transistors, and electrodes for solar cells and displays. Despite their remarkable… Expand
Bimaterial Microcantilevers as a Hybrid Sensing Platform
Abstract : Microcantilevers, one of the most common MEMS structures, have been introduced as a novel sensing paradigm nearly a decade ago. Ever since, the technology has emerged to find important… Expand
Micromechanical properties of glassy and rubbery polymer brush layers as probed by atomic force microscopy
Abstract Carboxylic acid terminated polystyrene and polybutylacrylate were grafted from melt onto a silicon substrate modified with the epoxysilane monolayer. The tethered layers fabricated from… Expand
Efficient gene delivery of primary human cells using peptide linked polyethylenimine polymer hybrid.
Polyethylenimine (PEI) based polymers are efficient agents for cell transfection. However, their use has been hampered due to high cell death associated with transfection thereby resulting in low… Expand
