Photothermally controlled Marangoni flow around a micro bubble
We have experimentally investigated the control of Marangoni flow around a micro bubble using photothermal conversion. Using a focused laser spot acting as a highly localized heat source on AuExpand
Photocatalysis of sculptured thin films of TiO2
Enhanced surface reaction efficiency has been demonstrated in the photocatalysis of obliquely deposited TiO2 thin films with variously shaped columns such as zigzag, cylinder, and helix. The columnarExpand
Numerical study of the effective surface area of obliquely deposited thin films
We have developed a three-dimensional Monte Carlo simulator for thin film growth and applied it to understand the morphologies of thin films prepared by dynamic oblique deposition with a specialExpand
Lattice Distortion at SiO2/Si(001) Interface Studied with High-Resolution Rutherford Backscattering Spectroscopy/Channeling
The growth-temperature dependence of the transition structure at the SiO2/Si interface is studied by high-resolution Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy/channeling. A Si lattice distortion isExpand
Observation of surface structure of 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide using high-resolution Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy.
The surface structures of 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide are studied by high-resolution Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy, showing that both cations and anions have preferential molecular orientations at the surface. Expand
Surface structures of binary mixtures of imidazolium-based ionic liquids using high-resolution Rutherford backscattering spectroscopy and time of flight secondary ion mass spectroscopy.
Although both measurements show surface segregation of [C10MIM] the degrees of the segregation are different, the observed discrepancy can be attributed to the difference in the probing depth between HRBS and TOF-SIMS. Expand
Simulating structure and optical response of vacuum evaporated porous rugate filters
The drive to develop better thin film devices stimulates great interest in the understanding and control of the properties and morphology of films. In this article we present a study of the opticalExpand
Atomic-scale depth profiling of composition, chemical structure and electronic band structure of La
Abstract The composition and chemical structures of lanthanum oxide films were determined by combining angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy and high resolution Rutherford backscattering studies.Expand
Integrated Sculptured Thin Films
We have demonstrated the integration of various morphologies generated by dynamic oblique deposition, during which the deposition angle and the azimuth of the substrate are varied. The layers withExpand
Onset of shadowing-dominated growth in glancing angle deposition
We demonstrate that shadowing instabilities can dramatically alter the very early stages of growth of amorphous thin films on nominally smooth surfaces. These observations are made by comparing theExpand
