Nanoscale crystallites of metals or semiconductors, exhibiting unusual size-dependent electronic, magnetic, optical, and catalytic properties due to the onset of quantum effects, are being heralded as the next-generation building blocks for modern materials design. However, [...]
Molecular dynamics simulations were performed in order to characterize the local lattice structure in the vicinity of the interfaces between nanosized B2 intermetallic aluminide dispersoids and aluminum matrices. The dispersoid materials selected for the present [...]
Recently, a thermooptical measuring device (TOM) has been developed to in-situ monitor the thermal diffusivity, shrinkage and light scattering of materials during sintering1,2. The initial stage of sintering is difficult to study by conventional methods [...]
Ordered FePt films have a very high magnetic anisotropy . By annealing FePt/Ag multilayer precursor films, isolated FePt nano particles have been obtained with high perpendicular magnetic anisotropy, which opens a window for ultra-high-density magnetic [...]

Interface controlled nucleation and growth of two and three dimensional nano structures show unique structural, optical, electronic and vibrational properties due to the quantum confinement of charge carriers. When the size is sufficiently small, the [...]
Nanotechnology and nanostructured materials have the potential to significantly impact energy efficiency, storage, and production. Such applications can be used to monitor and remediate environmental problems, curb emissions from a wide range of sources, and [...]
