Atomic-scale investigation of polydiacetylene nanowires by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy
Nanowires comprised of polydiacetylene, a conjugated polymer, have been analyzed at the nanoscale using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and spectroscopy. STM analysis shows that these nanowires exhibit unique electronic ...
Plasmon coupling between a gold colloid and a gold film and its implications on tip enhanced Raman spectroscopy
Engineering of plasmon resonances is important for a variety of applications, including but not limited to surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) and near field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM). Of special interest ...
Compact models for nanophotonic structures and on -chip interconnects
Over the last few years, scaling in deep submicron technologies has shifted the paradigm from device-dominated to interconnect-dominated design methodology. Consequently, there is an increasing interest towards the ...
Characterization of functionalized carbon nanotubes and graphite
Graphene and carbon nanotubes have drawn much attention in the last decade, and functionalization of these materials is considered a great technique for manipulating them. In this project, we mainly investigated functionalized ...
Logic design for reliability
Reliability of logic circuits is emerging as an important concern that may limit the benefits of continued scaling of process technology and the emergence of future technology alternatives. Scaling of CMOS devices below ...
Sequential quantization for classification : the impact of structure and nonparametric estimates
Sequential quantization is a constrained quantization method in which elements of a real-valued vector are sequentially mapped (quantized) onto a finite set. These quantization systems are constrained in that they are not ...
