  1. Nanodays - Space—Lab on Chip Technology: The final frontier

    18 May 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Marshall Porterfield

  2. Illinois Nano EP Seminar Series Spring 2010 - Lecture 5: Alignment of Carbon Nanotubes: a Route to Nanoelectronics

    29 Jan 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Jianliang Xiao

    Single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) possess extraordinary electrical properties, with many possible applications in electronics. Dense, horizontally aligned arrays of linearly configured SWNTs represent perhaps the most attractive and scalable way to implement this class of nanomaterial in...

  3. Self-Consistent Geometry, Density and Stiffness of Carbon Nanotubes

    05 May 2010 | | Contributor(s):: R. Byron Pipes

    A self-consistent set of relationships is developed for the physical properties of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCN) and their hexagonal arrays as a function of the chiral vector integer pair, (n,m). Properties include effective radius, density, principal Young’s modulus, and specific...

  4. ECET 499N Lecture 8: Electron Microscopy

    02 Mar 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Stach

    Guest lecture: Eric A. Stach

  5. Nanotribology, Nanomechanics and Materials Characterization Studies

    08 Jun 2009 | | Contributor(s):: Bharat Bhushan

    Fundamental nanotribological studies provide insight to molecular origins of interfacial phenomena including adhesion, friction, wear and lubrication. Friction and wear of lightly loaded micro/nano components are highly dependent on the surface interactions (few atomic layers). Nanotribological...

  6. Some Important Aspects of the Chemistry of Nanomaterials

    01 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: C.N.R. Rao

    Keynote address for the launch of the Center for Analytical Instrumentation Development.

  7. Nano Carbon: From ballistic transistors to atomic drumheads

    14 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Paul L. McEuen

    Carbon takes many forms, from precious diamonds to lowly graphite. Surprisingly, it is the latter that is the most prized by nano physicists. Graphene, a single layer of graphite, can serve as an impenetrable membrane a single atom thick. Rolled up into a nanometer-diameter cylinder--a carbon...

  8. Selected Properties of Carbon Nanostructures: from Exotic Fullerenes to Nanotubes

    30 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Manfred M. Kappes

    The talk presents results from ongoing projects in the field of carbonnanostructures: (i) Mass selected ion beam soft-landing has been usedto generate exotic fullerene materials comprising covalent linked,non-IPR cages. Apart from microscopic structure, we have studiedthermal and electronic...

  9. What Promises do Nanotubes and Nanowires Hold for Future Nanoelectronics Applications?

    18 Feb 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Joerg Appenzeller

    Various low-dimensional materials are currently explored for future electronics applications. The common ground for all these structures is that the surface related impact can no longer be ignored – the common approach applied to predict properties of bulk-type three-dimensional (3D) materials....
