In vitro Biomimetic Construction of Hydroxyapatite–Porcine Acellular Dermal Matrix Composite Scaffold for MC3T3-E1 Preosteoblast Culture
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-02-26)
The application of porous hydroxyapatite–collagen (HAp-Collagen) as a bone tissue engineering scaffold is hindered by two main problems: its high cost and low initial strength. As a native 3-dimenssional collagen framework, ...
Large enhancement in photon detection sensitivity via Schottky-gated CdS nanowire nanosensors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-01-06)
The Schottky contact based photon detection was demonstrated using CdS (visible light responsive), silicon (indirect n-type oxygen-non-adsorbing), and CuO (indirect p-type oxygen-adsorbing) nanowire nanosensors. With ...
Temperature driven in-situ phase transformation of PbWO₄ nanobelts
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-06-23)
Monoclinic raspite PbWO₄ nanobelts were synthesized by a facile composite-salt-mediated method. By in situ heating to above 538 °C inside the chamber of a transmission electron microscope, the raspite nanobelts transformed ...
Growth direction and morphology of ZnO nanobelts revealed by combining in situ atomic force microscopy and polarized Raman spectroscopy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-01-14)
Control over the morphology and structure of nanostructures is essential for their technological applications, since their physical properties depend significantly on their dimensions, crystallographic structure, and growth ...
