Integration of metal oxide nanobelts with microsystems for nerve agent detection
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-01-31)
We have assembled tin dioxide nanobelts with low-power microheaters for detecting dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP), a nerve agent simulant. The electrical conductance of a heated nanobelt increased for 5% upon exposure ...
Thermal conductivities of individual tin dioxide nanobelts
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-04-05)
We have measured the thermal conductivities of a 53-nm-thick and a 64-nm-thick tin dioxide (SnO₂) nanobelt using a microfabricated device in the temperature range of 80–350 K. The thermal conductivities of the nanobelts ...
Polar-surface dominated ZnO nanobelts and the electrostatic energy induced nanohelixes, nanosprings, and nanospirals
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-02-09)
We report the controlled synthesis of free-standing ZnO nanobelts whose surfaces are dominated by the large polar surfaces. The nanobelts grow along the a axis, their large top/bottom surfaces are the ±(0001) polar planes, ...
