Mono-Layer and Multi-Layer Nanowire Networks
The fabrication of nanoscale materials (by both bottom-up and top-down routes) has been driven by miniaturization of devices and the limitations of Si COMS technology. Research using one-dimensional nano-wires and nanotubes to fabricate nanodevices has demonstrated their potential applications, including field effect transistors, nano-biosensors, ...

Synthesis of Nanoscale Structures in Defined Locations
Since their discovery in 1991 by microscopist Sumio Iijima, carbon nanotubes have intrigued researchers with their structures and the applications enabled by their unique physical properties. Nanotubes exhibit high chemical resistance and mechanical strength, among other desirable physical properties. However, one ongoing challenge to exploiting ...

Shear-Force Ultrasonic Near-Field Microscope
The Shear-Force Ultrasonic Near-Field Microscope (SUNM) is a nanometrology tool for surface and subsurface materials characterization, including the dynamic behavior of fluid-like mesoscopic films confined between two sliding solid boundaries. By mechanically exciting the film and detecting the resulting sound emitted, the elastic properties of the...
