Silver nanowires were formed into random networks by using spin coating and spray deposition techniques. As a first step, electro-optical properties were optimized using an optimal nanowire density. The latter also depended on the nanowire [...]
Electron microscopes are the scientific tools which utilize highly energetic electron beam to overcome the light limitations in the study of specimen in nm scale. Electron detection has an important role in microscopic analysis and [...]
The granular giant magnetoresistance effect was originally studied in systems with ferromagnetic granules embedded in a metallic matrix. In contrast to previous systems, we have tested conductive nonmagnetic gels as matrices for the Co nanoparticles. [...]
The transfer-matrix approach is used to investigate the scattering of spin-polarized electron and neutron waves on the simple magnetized nanoelement structures which energetic profiles presents a finite potential magnetic barrier, in particular, of rectangular form. [...]
Double perovskite oxides with the general formula AA’BB’O6 (where A and A’ are rare earth or alkaline earth metals, and B and B’ are d-block transition metals) display a wide variety of interesting physical properties [...]
Cost-effective and rapid biosensor with background free chemiluminescence (CL) detection was developed using ssDNA aptamer-conjugated 6-FAM fluorescein (DAF), graphene oxide bound with magnetic nanoparticle (GMN), and 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenylglyoxal (TMPG). When thrombin was incubated in TE buffer [...]
Rapid and sensitive chemiluminescent aptasensor capable of rapidly sensing tumor markers in human serum with the combination of magnetic and non-magnetic graphene oxide. Human serum (150 µl) containing tumor markers (e.g., AFP and PSA) was [...]
This study reports a nanoporous anodic aluminum oxide (named np-AAO) template coated with Au nanocrown array on PET substrate for photonic switching application (Fig.1). In this device, the Au nanocrown array for photonic switching are [...]
We present a novel, cost-effective and simple technique operable at room temperature, wherein a non-electroluminescent (non-EL) material is being converted to exhibit stable and efficient EL using CNTs. The role of CNT has [...]
The laser-induced ripple structure of dye-doped liquid crystals has been investigated with the various polarization of pump beam. The process of laser-induced ripple structure involves two stages, the dye adsorption on substrate and the ripple [...]
Rapid single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) with 1,1’-oxalylimidazole chemiluminescence (ODI-CL) detection was developed for the early diagnosis of human mad-cow disease. Mutated single strand DNA (ssDNA) sequence discovered from patients having human mad-cow disease rapidly hybridize [...]
Carbon nanotube sheets and yarns were irradiated using electron beam (e-beam) energy to determine the effect of irradiation dose on the tensile properties. Results showed that there was very little change in the tensile strength [...]
Referring to the roman god Janus, depicted with two heads, Janus particles are defined as micro- or nano- particles owning two sides of different chemistry. They can be used as key-components in applications such as [...]

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been the focus of significant research since Iijma’s 1991 Nature article. CNTs have primarily been grown on flat substrates for a range of potential applications due to their superior properties. However,limited [...]
Single crystalline, vertically aligned nanoplates of molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) were grown on the cobalt coated glass substrates by a simple sublimation process in the presence of oxygen plasma. Many research groups have reported the synthesis [...]
The unique cruciform-shaped spirocyclic aromatic hydrocarbons might provide a facile strategy to design the multi-dimensional nanostructure of organic semiconductors “bottom up”, which could be exploited as the building block for micro/nano optoelectronic devices. Over the [...]
In this work we address the description of Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) in a complex multivalent quantum dot (QD)/dye system by understanding how inhomogeneity affects the FRET dynamics of the acceptor dye molecules. Most [...]
During the last years the number of light-harvesting luminescent dendrimers has increased rapidly. One of the most interesting features of the dendrimers is a possibility of incorporation of different chromophores within one dendritic molecule that [...]
