A density-functional study of ammonia chemisorption on the gallium(5) arsenic(5) cluster: Single and double adsorptions
I present a computational study of the reactivity between NH$\sb3$ and the $\rm Ga\sb5As\sb5$ cluster. A single NH$\sb3$ molecule approaches several sites on the cluster and the system is relaxed to its local lowest energy ...
Investigating the electronic properties of carbon nanostructures with scanning tunneling microscopy
Utilizing the scanning tunneling microscope, the electronic and structural properties of a variety of carbon based nanostructures, are explored. Among these, threefold electron scattering on graphite generated by vacancies ...
On the diffusion and phase transitions of confined colloid-polymer mixtures
Diffusion and phase transitions of confined neutral colloid-polymer mixtures are studied theoretically in one dimension, and theoretically and experimentally in two dimensions. For colloids in a channel, their short-time ...
Biomedical studies of single -walled carbon nanotubes using near-infrared fluorescence
Experimental studies will be described aimed at providing a scientific foundation for the use of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in biomedical applications. SWNTs have been found to be a unique class of nanoscale ...
