Nanoscale mechanical behavior of individual semiconducting nanobelts
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-08-04)
Nanobelts are a group of materials that have a rectangle-like cross section with typical widths of several hundred nanometers, width-to-thickness ratios of 5–10, and lengths of hundreds of micrometers. In this letter, ...
Nanobelts as nanocantilevers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-04-28)
Semiconducting oxide nanobelts of ZnO have been sectioned and manipulated, for microelectromechanical systems, using an atomic force microscopy probe. Structurally modified nanobelts demonstrate potential for nanocantilever ...
Controlled synthesis and manipulation of ZnO nanorings and nanobows
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-01-19)
An experimental procedure is presented for the controlled synthesis and manipulation of ZnO nanorings and nanobows at high purity and large yield. Atomic force microscopy manipulation of the nanostructures demonstrates ...
