Wetting studies on Au nanowires deposited through nanostencil masks
We present for the first time TEM cross-section studies of Au nanowires fabricated with nanostencil membranes. Au metallic nanowires from 100 to 20 nm in width are fabricated on metallic,Expand
Size effect on the superconducting transition of embedded lead particles in an Al–Cu–V amorphous matrix
We have synthesized specimens of nanometric lead dispersion in a glassy Al-Cu-V matrix by rapid solidification of the corresponding melt. The microstructure has been designed to avoid superconductingExpand
Step-by-step rotation of a molecule-gear mounted on an atomic-scale axis.
The mechanics of an intentionally constructed molecule-gear on a Au(111) surface are presented, mounting and centring one hexa-t-butyl-pyrimidopentaphenylbenzene molecule on one atom axis, leading to the construction of a fundamental component of a planar single-molecule mechanical machine. Expand
Sc modified multiferroic BiFeO3 thin films prepared through a sol-gel process
Multiferroic thin films with the general formula BiFe1−xScxO3 (x=0.0, 0.1, 0.3, and 0.5mol%) (BFS) were synthesized on Pt∕Ti∕SiO2∕Si substrates through a sol-gel deposition method. From the x-rayExpand
Direct observation of molecular orbitals of pentacene physisorbed on Au(111) by scanning tunneling microscope.
Differential conductance (dI/dV) images taken with a low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope enabled the first observation of the electron probability distribution of the molecular orbitals ofExpand
Manipulating molecular quantum states with classical metal atom inputs: demonstration of a single molecule NOR logic gate.
Quantum states of a trinaphthylene molecule were manipulated by putting its naphthyl branches in contact with single Au atoms demonstrating a NOR logic gate functionality. Expand
Charge transport in lightly reduced graphene oxide: A transport energy perspective
Significant variation in the charge transport behaviour in graphene oxide (GO) ranging from Schottky to Poole-Frenkel and to space charge limited transport exists. These have been extensivelyExpand
Multiple atomic scale solid surface interconnects for atom circuits and molecule logic gates.
The scientific and technical challenges involved in building the planar electrical connection of an atomic scale circuit to N electrodes (N > 2) are discussed. The practical, laboratory scaleExpand
Tailoring the local interaction between graphene layers in graphite at the atomic scale and above using scanning tunneling microscopy.
With recent developments in carbon-based electronics, it is imperative to understand the interplay between the morphology and electronic structure in graphene and graphite. We demonstrate controlledExpand
Ballistic electron microscopy of nanographene layers.
The results address the critical coupling issue for metal contacts to devices using molecules using molecules as active layers using scanning tunneling microscopy and ballistic electron emission spectroscopy and microscopy. Expand
