Heterogeneous catalytic materials and electrodes are used for (electro)chemical transformations, including those important for energy storage and utilization. Due to the heterogeneous nature of these materials, activity measurements with sufficient spatial resolution are needed to [...]
Nano porous gold film is fabricated by electroless plating with Potassium Gold Cyanide as plating solution. E-beam deposited Cu substrates are chosen for plating experiments. SEM studies revealed the pore size to be 100+20 nm [...]
Insulating films such as silicon dioxide (SiO₂) have a variety of microelectronic applications because of the compound's insulating and dielectric properties. When measuring the electrical properties of a metal oxide film like silicon oxide, it [...]
Two dimensional (2D) materials have attracted a lot of attention due to their optimal optoelectronic properties which are not found in the domain of silicon based electronic materials. The identification and characterization of 2D materials, [...]
Structure-function relationships remain a critical theme in understanding many important biological processes regarding energy, disease and other applications. At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, home to two of the most powerful neutron sources for research High [...]
Sintering is one of the primary methods of fabrication of ceramic materials. Therefore, a detailed understanding of the processing-property relationships for materials undergoing sintering is of great potential value. A new testing method combining small [...]
Aggregation of biological and synthetic materials is a source of tremendous concern, posing problems at various stages of discovery and formulation processes. The ability to identify and characterize aggregates is of broad utility, and experiments [...]
Nanoscale materials are becoming increasingly prevalent in our lives. The strategies required to characterize the properties and performance of nanoscale materials can be as unique as the material itself. We have experienced that separation of [...]

Corresponding author, e-mail: email@example.com (Tamerlan Magkoev) Metal/oxide systems are widely used in different application fields, such as heterogeneous catalysis, nanoelectronics, sensing techniques, optics, photonics, etc. . Despite of a very extensive research in this field, [...]
We present a novel and simple method to enable spatially selective ZnAl2O4 nanocrystal formation on the surface of glass. Zinc Aluminate, well-known as a wide band gap semiconductor, has been widely used as high temperature [...]
First-order-reversal-curves (FORC) are an elegant tool for characterizing the magnetic properties of materials. The technique has been extensively used to investigate the magnetic properties of natural samples because it can distinguish between different domain states [...]
