Frequency interference between two quartz crystal microbalances
Multichannel quartz crystal microbalances (MQCM) are very attractive for biosensor applications because these devices can be miniaturized using microelectromechanical systems micromachiningExpand

Surface stress effects on the resonance properties of cantilever sensors
The effect of surface stress on the resonance frequency of a cantilever sensor is modeled analytically by incorporating strain-dependent surface stress terms into the equations of motion. ThisExpand

Bilayer gate dielectric study by scanning tunneling microscopy
An advanced bilayer gate dielectric stack consisting of Sc2O3∕La2O3∕SiOx annealed in nitrogen at 300°C was studied by scanning tunneling microscopy using bias dependent imaging. By changing theExpand

Direct adsorption and monolayer self-assembly of acetyl-protected dithiols.
The alpha,omega-dithiols, with sulfur-containing groups at both ends of the molecules, can be used to bridge a metallic gap. Functional self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of these dithiols must "standExpand

Dynamic interactions between microbubbles in water
The interaction between moving bubbles, vapor voids in liquid, can arguably represent the simplest dynamical system in continuum mechanics as only a liquid and its vapor phase are involved.Expand

Crystalline structure and squeeze-out dissipation of liquid solvation layers observed by small-amplitude dynamic AFM
Using frequency-modulation atomic force microscopy (FM-AFM) at sub-nanometer vibration amplitudes, we find in the system $n$-dodecanol/graphite that solvation layers may extend for several nanometersExpand

Solvation forces in branched molecular liquids.
The solvation force of squalane confined between a silicon tip and a graphite surface has been measured by atomic force microscopy. This highly branched molecule shows oscillatory force profilesExpand
