Molecular synthesis and modification of surfaces for electronic device applications
This dissertation focuses on the synthesis of molecules and their grafting onto surfaces in order to modify the physical properties and behavior of various substrates and devices. For gold, first presented is the self-assembly ...
Single-molecule FRET analysis of the dynamics of AMPA receptor
Single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (smFRET) spectroscopy has advanced to become a powerful tool in characterizing biomolecules to the molecular level. In this thesis, the smFRET technique was utilized ...
Controlled synthesis of single-walled carbon nanotubes
The chemistry and applications of carbon nanotubes are critically dependent on nanotube chirality. To date, no one has demonstrated chirality-selective synthesis of single-walled carbon nanotubes from pre-synthesized ...
