Nanowires are an exciting class of novel materials that have potential applications in areas including biological sensing, photonics, and electronics. The promise of these future applications relies on the production of ...
Carbon Nanotubes: Chemical Vapor Deposition Synthesis and Application in Electrochemical Double Layer Supercapacitors
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-03-08)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have become a popular area of materials science research due to their outstanding material properties coupled with their small size. CNTs are expected to be included in a wide variety of applications ...
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 ...
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, ...

(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-02)
In this paper, a novel nano-scale conductive film which combines the advantages of both traditional anisotropic conductive adhesives/films (ACAs/ACFs) and nonconductive adhesives/films (NCAs/NCFs) is introduced for next ...
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 ...
Direct synthesis of silicon nanowires, silica nanospheres, and wire-like nanosphere agglomerates
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000-04-24)
Elevated temperature synthesis has been used to generate virtually defect free SiO₂sheathed crystalline silicon nanowires and silica (SiO₂) nanospheres which can be agglomerated to wire-like configurations impregnated with ...
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-06-12)
Nanotechnology and nanoscience are experiencing rapid development in the last decade. Intensive research has been carried out on nanostructures synthesis and nanodevices fabrication. Due to its small size, a nanodevice ...
