We present electrochemical impedance spectroscopic (EIS) and two-chamber AFM investigations of the electrical and mechanical properties of solvent-containing nano-BLMs suspended on chip-based nanopores of diameter of 200, 400, and 700 nm. The chips containing nanoporous silicon nitride membranes are fabricated based on low-cost colloidal lithography with(More)
Temperature-responsive properties of surface-attached poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) network films with well-controlled chemistry are investigated. The synthesis consists of cross-linking and grafting preformed ene-reactive polymer chains through thiol-ene click chemistry. The formation of surface-attached and cross-linked polymer films has the(More)
We report enhanced force detection selectivity based on Coulombic interactions through AFM tip modification for probing fine structures of the electric double layer (EDL) in ionic liquids. When AFM tips anchored with alkylthiol molecular layers having end groups with different charge states (e.g., -CH3, -COO(-), and -NH3(+)) are employed, Coulombic(More)
