Imaging and manipulating organometallic molecules by scanning tunneling microscopy
Using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) we have explored complex surface adsorbed molecules, nanocars, on Au(111) and the parameters related to the direct translation of these molecules by the STM tip. Specifically, the ...
Engineering Escherichia coli for the production of polyketide-based platform chemicals
The current chemical industry produces a diverse array of industrial chemicals from a handful of highly reduced byproducts (termed "platform chemicals") derived from oil refining. However, petroleum is a non-renewable ...
Regular Arrays of QDs by Solution Processing
Hydrophilic silicon and germanium quantum dots were synthesized by a "bottom-up" method utilizing micelles to control particle size. Liquid phase deposition of silica on these quantum dots was successful with and without ...
Bleach Imaged Plasmon Propagation (BIIPP) in Single Gold Nanowires
Here, we present a novel approach to visualize propagating surface plasmon polaritons through plasmon-exciton interactions between single gold nanowires and a thin film of a fluorescent polymer. A plasmon polariton was ...
Experiments and Modeling of Ternary Alloy Semiconductors
Results of the growth of Ga 1-x In x Sb crystals as the pseudobinary Ga 1-x Sb--In x Sb are presented. Special focus is given to the relationship between crystal composition and the cut-off wavelength of transmission for ...
The transition from a TEM-like mode to a plasmonic mode in finite-width THz parallel-plate waveguides
By the near-field measurement of the electric field distribution inside the finite width THz parallel plate waveguide, we find the transition from conventional diffractive TEM-like mode to plasmonic mode. This mode transition ...
