Soft Lithography.
Elastomeric stamps and molds provide a great opportunity to eliminate some of the disadvantages of photolithograpy, which is currently the leading technology for fabricating small structures. In theExpand
Electrospinning of Nanofibers: Reinventing the Wheel?†
Electrospinning provides a simple and versatile method for generating ultrathin fibers from a rich variety of materials that include polymers, composites, and ceramics. This article presents anExpand
Shape-controlled synthesis of metal nanocrystals: simple chemistry meets complex physics?
Nanocrystals are fundamental to modern science and technology. Mastery over the shape of a nanocrystal enables control of its properties and enhancement of its usefulness for a given application. OurExpand
One‐Dimensional Nanostructures: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications
This article provides a comprehensive review of current research activities that concentrate on one-dimensional (1D) nanostructures—wires, rods, belts, and tubes—whose lateral dimensions fallExpand
Electrospinning of polymeric and ceramic nanofibers as uniaxially aligned arrays
Electrospinning has been applied to prepare uniaxially aligned nanofibers made of organic polymers, ceramics, and polymer/ceramic composites. The key to the success of this method was the use of aExpand
Soft lithography for micro- and nanoscale patterning
This protocol provides an introduction to soft lithography—a collection of techniques based on printing, molding and embossing with an elastomeric stamp. Soft lithography provides access toExpand
Shape-Controlled Synthesis of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles
Monodisperse samples of silver nanocubes were synthesized in large quantities by reducing silver nitrate with ethylene glycol in the presence of poly(vinyl pyrrolidone) (PVP). These cubes were singleExpand
Controlling the synthesis and assembly of silver nanostructures for plasmonic applications.
Coinage metals, such as Au, Ag, and Cu, have been important materials throughout history.1 While in ancient cultures they were admired primarily for their ability to reflect light, their applicationsExpand
Localized surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy of single silver nanocubes.
In this work, we use dark-field microscopy to observe a new plasmon resonance effect for a single silver nanocube in which the plasmon line shape has two distinct peaks when the particles are locatedExpand
Crystalline Silver Nanowires by Soft Solution Processing
This paper describes a soft, solution-phase approach to the large-scale synthesis of uniform nanowires of bicrystalline silver whose lateral dimensions could be controlled in the range of 30−40 nm,Expand
