Biological molecules can be used as versatile templates for assembling nanoscale materials because of their unique structures and chemical diversities. Supramolecular organization of molecular pigments, as is found in the natural light-harvesting antenna, has drawn attention for its potential applications to sensors, photocatalytic systems, and photonic(More)
We present an efficient method for measuring cell stretching based on three-dimensional viscoelastic particle focusing. We suspended cells in a biocompatible viscoelastic medium [poly(vinylpyrrolidone) solution in phosphate-buffered saline]. The medium viscoelasticity significantly homogenized the trajectories of cells along the centerline of a simple(More)
Interest in oxide semiconductors stems from benefits, primarily their ease of process, relatively high mobility (0.3-10 cm(2)/vs), and wide-bandgap. However, for practical future electronic devices, the channel mobility should be further increased over 50 cm(2)/vs and wide-bandgap is not suitable for photo/image sensor applications. The incorporation of(More)
Graphene oxide has recently been considered to be a potential replacement for cadmium-based quantum dots due to its expected high fluorescence. Although previously reported, the origin of the luminescence in graphene oxide is still controversial. Here, we report the presence of core/valence excitons in graphene-based materials, a basic ingredient for(More)
We have developed a femtosecond single-shot spectroscopic technique to measure irreversible changes in condensed phase materials in real time. Crossed echelons generate a two-dimensional array of time-delayed pulses with one femtosecond probe pulse. This yields 9 ps of time-resolved data from a single laser shot, filling a gap in currently employed(More)
We examined the ultrafast dynamics of photocarriers in nanocrystalline ZnOxNy thin films as a function of compositional variation using femtosecond differential transmittance spectroscopy. The relaxation dynamics of photogenerated carriers and electronic structures are strongly dependent on nitrogen concentration. Photocarriers of ZnOxNy films relax on two(More)
Thermal modeling and numerical simulations have been performed to describe the ultrafast thermal response of band gap materials upon optical excitation. A model was established by extending the conventional two-temperature model that is adequate for metals, but not for semiconductors. It considers the time- and space-dependent density of electrons(More)
The transition between two conformations of pyridine molecules adsorbed on a Ag(110) surface at 13 K was investigated by performing single-molecule manipulation at a very low coverage and the track-imaging of pyridines for various surface coverages using a variable low-temperature scanning tunneling microscope. A single tilted conformer was converted to an(More)
Distribution of electrolyte ions near the surface of water or ice is a subject of interest in both fundamental chemistry and atmospheric chemistry of sea-salt aerosols and ice particles. The ion distribution at the surface of these particles may affect their reaction with ozone and organic species in the troposphere and the generation of reactive halogen(More)
