Fabrication of optically active nanostructures by chemical methods
A new method of fabricating long-range, planar arrays of discrete, submicron metal structures on glass or SiO2/Si surfaces has been developed without the use of resist masks or chemical etching. The approach combines ...
Towards a fullerene-based nanotechnology: The (10,10) tube
While fullerenes form in yields exceeding 30% by mass when a laser generated pure carbon vapor is allowed to condense under annealing conditions, more than 70% of all vaporized carbon assembles in the form of single-wall ...
Synthesis, characterization and magnetic property studies of copper-based phosphate and silicate compounds containing nanosize transition metal oxide frameworks
The search for novel compounds with nanosize transition metal oxide frameworks is important for the study and understanding of materials with interesting and important magnetic and electronic properties. These low-dimensional ...
Clusters as models of bulk surfaces and novel materials
Studies on gas phase clusters show that common ground exists between clusters and bulk surfaces such that clusters can serve as models of bulk surfaces. Several cluster systems are studied to probe this cluster-surface ...
Reshaping the metallic surface of a gold nanoshell
Two methods for the controlled reshaping of metal nanoparticles have been investigated: pulsed laser induced reshaping and surfactant-mediated restructuring. The laser induced shape changes of gold nanoshells have been ...
Nanoparticle assemblies and interactions
Silica nanoparticles coated with functionalized organosilane molecules are used as substrates for the formation of assemblies of gold nanoparticles. In an assembly of nanoparticles, the optical response of each nanoparticle ...
