The use of nanomanipulators made on the base of monocrystals characterized inverse piezoelectric effect and many times, in comparison with piezoceramic, less hysteresis and creep, allows to achieve the following results: - Shorten the time [...]
We present a novel method for the nano-positioning measurement of a sample relying on symmetry considerations. In particular, we exploit the cylindrical symmetry of a control defect appended to the sample. The exact nature of [...]
We present a rapid and low-cost fabrication technique to build a small array of antennas operating in the Ka band (20-30GHz). The designed antenna prototypes have a wire diameter of 0.2mm, a helix diameter of [...]
In our previous work, we investigated the LAL process of producing Si NPs with pulsed infrared transverse excited atmospheric (TEA) CO2 laser and we analyzed the role of thermal effects on the NP’s size distribution. [...]

The use of GaN based SAW type sensors has a major advantage for temperature measurements in GaN MMICs because of the possibility of monolithic integration of the temperature sensor and the possibility to place the [...]
Recently metal assisted chemical etching of silicon has emerged as a promising low-cost technology for the fabrication of vertical aligned silicon nanowire arrays.The technology comprises two steps: depositing a layer of 2-D porous siliver film [...]
Hollow nanospheres and nanofoams possess characteristics such as low density, high surface area and adjustable refractive index that make them attractive to tune their mechanical, optical, electrical, and chemical properties for applications ranging from drug [...]
We report here the development of electrically conductive polypropylene MWCNT fibers and tapes with conductivities up to 70 S/m (8% wt) with a percolation threshold at 0.5%. Using a solution compounding method assisted by sonication [...]
The fundamental goal of this study is to present effects on the material AISI with one of the micro-machining methods in modern security printing technology, such card production, needle tip engraving. This method is basically [...]
The bioavailability of ingested silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) depends in large part on initial particle size, shape and surface coating, properties which will influence aggregation, solubility and chemical composition during transit of the gastrointestinal tract. In [...]
It is presented here for the first time the deposition of oxides, nitrides and oxinitride thin films by a new plasma source based on Thermionic Vacuum Arc plasma (TVA), called Compact-TVA (C-TVA). The source uses [...]
A unique EBL writing technique is presented which is ideally suited to patterns of a periodic nature such as gratings, holograms, photonic crystals, sieves, etc. In contrast to classic step-and-write EBL strategies, this technique writes [...]
A wide variety of glass products would greatly benefit from coatings that offer anti-reflective, anti-glare, anti-fog, anti-ice, self-cleaning, and other advanced functions. State-of-the-art coatings do not meet desired performance characteristics or cannot be applied over [...]
In this article we demonstrate the use of self-assembled peptide nanotube structures as a masking material in a rapid, mild and low cost fabrication of PEDOT:TsO nanowire device. In this new fabrication approach the PEDOT:TsO [...]

Surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices have many applications and can be found in common consumer electronics such as mobile phones, WiFi and GPS. Beside its use in electronics they can also be used as a [...]
Electrical characterization at the nanoscale is an essential procedure for analyzing the performance of many materials used at both industry and academia. In this field, one of the most powerful tools is the Conductive Atomic [...]
Nanostructured materials provide unique features that could not be achieved in bulk constructions. silicon nanowires (SiNWs) due to the exclusive controllable physical and electrical properties as well as established growth methods are most appealing ones. [...]
Although Electron Beam Induced Deposition (EBID) is considered as a single-step process for creation of three-dimensional nanostructures of different materials, direct deposition of highly pure metallic structures had been rarely achieved. Typically, use precursors such [...]
We demonstrated direct observation of nanofabrication using the optical microscope (OM) combined with nanopipette/QTF-AFM (Quartz Tuning Fork-Atomic Force Microscopy) system. Various solutions are ejected onto the substrate through the nano-/micro-aperture of the pulled pipette, and [...]

This research shows a process combining STM lithography with the well controlled technique of ALD, indicating a new process for using single-pass STM patterning 3-D structures with sub-nanometer dimensional control. The templating was done using [...]
We present a compact, simple and efficient platform for MEMS/NEMS characterization. In this platform, a DVD optical pickup unit (OPU) is combined with a CCD camera. A nano-scale resolution long range X-Y-Z linear stage below [...]
