Polyimides with Fluorenyl Side Groups and Their Unusual, Unique Alignability of Liquid Crystals at the Film Surface

, , , ,
Polyimides (PIs) have been widely used in the microelectronics industry as dielectric materials because of their advantageous properties. In the present study, we synthesized CBDA-FDA and its analogue, poly(4,4’-(9,9-fluorenyl)diphenylene pyromellitimide) (PMDA-FDA) and then investigated quantitatively [...]

Functional Plastic Liquid Crystal Displays from II-VI Semiconductor Nanocomposite Thin Film Transistors on Polymers

, , , , , , ,
This talk describes how II-VI semiconductors can be deposited from solution to create all-inorganic TFTs on plastic. We discuss semiconductor film growth mechanisms that arise from competition among nanoparticle formation, particle-particle accretion in solution and [...]

Batch Fabrication of Nanostructured Heterogeneous Microarrays for Chemical Sensing

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Deposition of nanoparticles from the gas phase is becoming an enabling technology for batch production of nanostructured devices. Supersonic clusters beam deposition (SCBD) has been shown as a viable route for the production of nanostructured [...]

Current-induced Breakdown of Carbon Nanofibers Under Vacuum and Atmospheric Conditions

, , , , , , , , , ,
Current-induced breakdown phenomena of carbon nanofibers (CNFs) for the development of carbon-based interconnects are investigated to reveal current-carrying capacity and reliability of CNF devices. Scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) techniques are developed to study the [...]
