Electromechanical Investigation of Low Dimensional Nanomaterials for NEMS Applications
Successful operation of Nano-ElectroMechanical Systems (NEMS) critically depends on their working environment and component materials' electromechanical properties. It is equally important that ambient or liquid environment ...
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 ...
Optical Spectroscopy of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Under Extreme Conditions
Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are one of the leading candidate materials to realize novel nanoscale photonic devices. In order to assess their performance characteristics as optoelectronic materials, it is crucial ...
