Nanoscaled Science and Engineering for Sensing : Quantum Dots Fluorescence Quenching for Organic NO2 Sensing

, , , , , , , ,
We report on femtosecond laser off-resonance excitation of quantum dots-TNT assemblies in solution. The fluorescence emission from quantum dots shifts toward lower wavelengths and the relative peak intensity decreases with the amount of TNT added [...]

Density Functional Calculations as a Tool for the Characterization of Ultra Thin Organic Films: Synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of RDX monolayers on glass substrates

, , , , , , , , ,
Density functional theory calculations (DFT), Raman and atomic force microscopy (AFM) were employed to study the surface chemistry of ultra thin films of RDX on glass substrates. The preparation method played a major role in [...]
