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 ...
Characterizing growth conditions in chlorine-activated diamond chemical vapor deposition
This research expands the current scope of understanding on the chemical and engineering phenomena underlying chlorine-activated chemical vapor deposition (CACVD) of thin diamond films. Numerical modelling at various levels ...
SWNTs in the aqueous phase
Fullerene nanotubes were suspended as individuals in aqueous sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) by sonication and ultra centrifugation. Ultra centrifugation was found to remove bundles of nanotubes and metal catalyst particles, ...
The synthesis and high pressure behavior of nanoquartz
This work describes the first chemical method for the preparation of quartz nanocrystals. Microscopic characterization to evaluate phase purity, size distribution and extent of aggregation is performed. In addition, pressure ...
Science of single-wall carbon nanotubes: Purification, characterization and chemistry
Characterization of raw nanotube materials produced by different methods is demonstrated. Depending on the production methods, tubes of different diameters can be produced. Purification of single wall carbon nanotubes ...
Chemistry of nanostructured carbon: I. Fluorination, cutting and derivatization of single-wall carbon nanotubes; II. Fluorination and characterization of polymeric carbon 60
Purified HiPco SWNTs have been fluorinated with elemental fluorine under various conditions to control the stoichiometry of the resultant Fluorotubes. The partially fluorinated SWNTs with stoichiometry CFx (x ≤ 0.3), ...
