Higher cell stiffness indicating lower metastatic potential in B16 melanoma cell variants and in (−)-epigallocatechin gallate-treated cells
It is shown that cell stiffness is a reliable quantitative indicator of migration potential, and very likely metastatic potential, even in morphologically similar cells, and increased cell stiffness may be a key nanomechanical feature in inhibition of metastasis. Expand
Development and application of multiple-probe scanning probe microscopes.
A quadruple-probe AFM (QP-AFM) with four conductive tuning-fork-type self-detection force sensing probes has been developed to measure the conductivity of a nanostructure on an insulating substrate. Expand
Emergent dynamics of neuromorphic nanowire networks
The role of single junction switching in the dynamical properties of the neuromorphic network is analyzed and this system is placed in the class of optimal transport networks, from which new fundamental parallels with neural dynamics and natural computing problem-solving can be drawn. Expand
Angled long tip to tuning fork probes for atomic force microscopy in various environments.
It is revealed that the higher order flexural modes of this TFP are advantageous for FM-AFM in water due to the reduction in the degree of hydrodynamic damping. Expand
Epitaxial growth of WOx nanorods on single‐crystal tungsten substrate
Nanorods of substoichiometric tungsten oxide (WOx) were grown on single-crystal tungsten substrate. The grown nanorods were investigated with scanning electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy.Expand
Control of Photodynamic Motions of Azobenzene‐Derivative Polymers by Laser Excitation Wavelength
The dynamic properties of photoinduced alignment and surface relief grating (SRG) formation asafunction ofexcitationwavelength(lex ¼454,488,514,532,568,and 647nm)areexamined using fiveExpand
Improved electrical conductance through self-assembly of bioinspired peptides into nanoscale fibers
Abstract We investigated the electrical conductance of films consisting of bio-inspired peptide molecules and of their extended form, self-assembled nanoscale fibers. Here, the entirely natural andExpand
Atomically resolved structure of ligand-protected Au9 clusters on TiO2 nanosheets using aberration-corrected STEM.
Triphenylphosphine ligand-protected Au9 clusters deposited onto titania nanosheets show three different atomic configurations as observed by scanning transmission electron microscopy, and two pseudo-2-dimensional structures, newly found by this work. Expand
Metallic versus Semiconducting SWCNT Chemiresistors: A Case for Separated SWCNTs Wrapped by a Metallosupramolecular Polymer.
The results reveal that S- and M-SWC NTs compensate sensitivity and selectivity, and the combined use of separated SWCNTs, either in arrays or in single sensors, offers advantages in sensing systems. Expand
Functionalized carbon nanotubes for pH sensors based on SERS
A pH sensor has been developed by realizing bimetallic-nanoparticle-decorated carbon nanotubes (CNTs); a single CNT is capable of measuring pH in its local vicinity continuously over the range of 5.6Expand
