We demonstrate a simple and cost-effective route, based around block copolymer patterning, to create dense arrays of highly ordered iron oxide nanodots at substrate surface. The methodology creates hexagonally arranged features via a process of [...]

High surface area ceria nanoparticles have been prepared using a citrate sol-gel precipitation method. Changes to the particle size have been made by calcining the ceria powders at different temperatures, and X-ray methods used to [...]

The investigation aims at growing carbon nanotubes of controlled diameter from inside pores of ceramic materials. The resulting carbon nanotubes will then be used in electrons as thermally conductive substrates in die mountings.

We have prepared high-density, ordered arrays of semiconductor nanowires within the pores of mesoporous thin films (MTFs) and anodized aluminum oxide (AAO) matrices using a supercritical fluid solution-phase inclusion technique. Conductive atomic force microscopy (C-AFM) [...]
