Solubility, length characterization, and cryo-TEM of pristine and functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes in surfactant and superacid systems, with application to spinning SWNT fibers
Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have remarkable properties: the thermal conductivity of diamond, the electrical conductivity of copper, and mechanical properties greater than steel at a sixth of the weight. If these ...
Characterization & Application of Immobilized Biomacromolecules using Microcantilever and QCM Sensors
The structure and function of immobilized biomacromolecules are likely to be altered because of the solid surface. The long-term objective of this thesis is to develop surface-based biosensors for the characterization and ...
Interfacial Assembly of Nanoparticles with Soft Templates for Photovoltaic Applications
Controlling the assembly of nanoparticles into well-defined functional systems remains a challenge. The main difficulty is that the majority of bulk nanoparticle processing methods result in nanoparticle aggregation and ...
Advanced Synthesis Techniques and Characterization of Functional Semiconductor Nanomaterials
Semiconductor materials are used in several modern day applications ranging from photovoltaic devices to environmental remediation. The electronic, optical, catalytic and physical properties of semiconductor nanomaterials ...
