Viscoelasticity of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Solutions with Tunable Attractive Interactions
Understanding the microstructure of single walled nanotubes (SWNTs) in solution is an essential step in the development of fluid processing techniques for the creation of multifunctional macroscopic SWNT materials and is ...
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 ...
Functionalization of carbon nanomaterials for biomedical and nanocomposite applications
New derivatives of carbon nanostructures: nanotubes, nano-onions and nanocrystalline diamonds were obtained through fluorination and subsequent functionalization with sucrose. Chemically modified nanocarbons show high ...
Synthesis and photo-response study on GaSe and InSe atomic layers
The two dimensional atomically layered materials are drawing intense attention in recent years, because of their special physical properties. Graphene, as a layered material with large charge carrier mobility, has been ...
Investigating mechanical and physical properties of nanostructures
In the first part of the dissertation, mechanical properties of bundles of carbon nanotubes are investigated. Earlier experiments showed that these tubes are tightly packed in the bundles, proving that they are strongly ...
