Computationally guided design uncovers atomic-scale details that are critical for devices concerning the minimization of direct tunneling between the leads while maintaining sufficient peak current and peak-to-valley current ratio.
This work demonstrated an efficient method based on 2D MXenes that detects water vapor at a very low detection limit of <0.1%RH, exceeding performance (detection range, sensitivity and power) of other 2D-materials.
This work demonstrated a third-harmonic signal from a topologically non-trivial zigzag array of dielectric nanoparticles and strong enhancement of the nonlinear photon generation at the edge states of the nanofabricated array.
This work provided a clear understanding of the mechanism for the observed Raman shifts under strain for few-layer black phosphorous (BP). This understanding settles literature controversy and means that the Raman signatures can be used to develop stra
This work is one of the very few studies comparing the effects of partial versus full deuteration on the structures and properties in semicrystalline polymers.
This research overcomes limitations in poor solubility of heterometallic double complex salt (DCS) precursors by using a clever sequential adsorption of metal cations and anions onto a silica support followed by an efficient reduction step which convert
This work directly measured the intrinsic surface conductance of topological insulators by using a four-probe scanning tunneling microscope (4-Probe STM) to tune the crossover of bulk-to-surface conductance. A scattering-free spin transport was reveale
This work successfully demonstrated size and geometry customizable carbon microelectrode sensors using templates produced with the CNMS Nanoscribe. These novel carbon electrodes were then implanted into a rat brain to detect dopamine release in vivo.
This work presents a direct observation of electric field induced motion/response of ionic diblockcopolymer thin films with nanoscale resolution using In situ neutron reflectometry measurements and molecular dynamics simulations.
This joint CNMS-CFN research effort built on unique capabilities of two NSRCs and resulted in a new hybrid nanocomposite sensor material with ~20 times higher gravimetric response than pure polymer thin films, and that could be further enhanced by addit
