  • Mentzel, Tamar; Wanger, Darcy Deborah; Ray, Nirat; Walker, Brian J.; Strasfeld, David B.; Bawendi, Moungi G.; Kastner, Marc (American Chemical Society, 2012-07)
    We present the first semiconductor nanocrystal films of nanoscale dimensions that are electrically conductive and crack-free. These films make it possible to study the electrical properties intrinsic to the nanocrystals ...
  • Gan, Xuetao; Clevenson, Hannah; Tsai, Cheng-Chia; Li, Luozhou; Englund, Dirk Robert; Clevenson, Hannah A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-07)
    Polymers have appealing optical, biochemical, and mechanical qualities, including broadband transparency, ease of functionalization, and biocompatibility. However, their low refractive indices have precluded wavelength-scale ...
  • Tiecke, Tobias; Gullans, M.; Chang, D. E.; Feist, J.; Thompson, J. D.; Cirac, J. I.; Zoller, P.; Lukin, M. D. (American Physical Society, 2012-12)
    We propose to use subwavelength confinement of light associated with the near field of plasmonic systems to create nanoscale optical lattices for ultracold atoms. Our approach combines the unique coherence properties of ...
  • Feist, Johannes; Reid, M. T. Homer; Kling, Matthias F. (American Physical Society, 2013-03)
    The temporal response of resonances in nanoplasmonic structures typically converts an incoming few-cycle field into a much longer near-field at the spot where nonlinear physical phenomena including electron emission, ...
  • Chen, Grace D.; Fachin, Fabio; Fernandez-Suarez, Marta; Wardle, Brian L.; Toner, Mehmet (Wiley Blackwell, 2011-03)
    Solid materials, such as silicon, glass, and polymers, dominate as structural elements in microsystems including microfluidics. Porous elements have been limited to membranes sandwiched between microchannel layers or polymer ...
  • Luo, Tengfei; Chen, Gang (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2013-04-09)
    Heat transfer can differ distinctly at the nanoscale from that at the macroscale. Recent advancement in computational and 5 experimental techniques has enabled a large number of interesting observations and understanding ...
  • Maze, J. R.; Cappellaro, Paola; Childress, L.; Dutt, M. V. G.; Hodges, Jonathan S.; Hong, S.; Jiang, L.; Stanwix, P. L.; Taylor, J. M.; Togan, E.; Zibrov, A. S.; Hemmer, P.; Yacoby, A.; Walsworth, R. L.; Lukin, M. D. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-02)
    The ability to sense nanotelsa magnetic fields with nanoscale spatial resolution is an outstanding technical challenge relevant to the physical and biological sciences. For example, detection of such weak localized fields ...
  • Lin, Chung-Han; Merz, T. A.; Doutt, D. R.; Hetzer, M. J.; Joh, Jungwoo; del Alamo, Jesus A.; Mishra, U. K.; Brillson, L. J. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-07)
    We used depth-resolved microcathodoluminescence spectroscopy (DRCLS) and Kelvin probe force microscopy (KPFM) to measure and map the temperature distribution and defect generation inside state-of-the-art AlGaN/GaN-based ...
  • Packard, C.E.; Franke, O.; Homer, E.R.; Schuh, Christopher A. (Cambridge University Press (Materials Research Society), 2011-01)
    Low-load nanoindentation can be used to assess not only the plastic yield point, but the distribution of yield points in a material. This paper reviews measurements of the so-called nanoscale strength distribution (NSD) ...
  • Shen, Sheng; Mavrokefalos, Anastassios; Sambegoro, Poetro Lebdo; Chen, Gang (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-06)
    In this letter, we measured the nanoscale thermal radiation between a microsphere and a substrate which were both coated with thick gold films. Although gold is highly reflective for thermal radiation, the radiative heat ...
  • Keten, Sinan; Buehler, Markus J. (The Royal Society, 2010-06)
    Spider silk is a self-assembling biopolymer that outperforms most known materials in terms of its mechanical performance, despite its underlying weak chemical bonding based on H-bonds. While experimental studies have shown ...
  • Masoero, Enrico; Del Gado, E.; Pellenq, Roland Jm; Ulm, Franz-Josef; Yip, Sidney (American Physical Society, 2012-10)
    Cement setting and cohesion are governed by the precipitation and growth of calcium-silicate-hydrate, through a complex evolution of microstructure. A colloidal model to describe nucleation, packing, and rigidity of ...
  • Shafiee, Hadi; Lidstone, Erich A.; Jahangir, Muntasir; Inci, Fatih; Hanhauser, Emily; Henrich, Timothy J.; Kuritzkes, Daniel R.; Cunningham, Brian T.; Demirci, Utkan (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-02)
    Detecting and quantifying biomarkers and viruses in biological samples have broad applications in early disease diagnosis and treatment monitoring. We have demonstrated a label-free optical sensing mechanism using ...
  • Wong, Ian Y.; Bhatia, Sangeeta N.; Toner, Mehmet (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2013-11)
    Historically, biomedical research has been based on two paradigms. First, measurements of biological behaviors have been based on bulk assays that average over large populations. Second, these behaviors have then been ...
  • Banerjee, Deboshri; Harfouche, Rania; Sengupta, Shiladitya (BioMed Central Ltd, 2011-01)
    Abstract Angiogenesis is disregulated in many diseased states, most notably in cancer. An emerging strategy for the development of therapies targeting tumor-associated angiogenesis is to harness the potential of nanotechnology ...

Paul; Andrews, Anne M.; Boyden, Edward Stuart; Chun, Miyoung; Church, George M.; Deisseroth, Karl; Donoghue, John P.; Fraser, Scott E.; Lippincott-Schwartz, Jennifer; Looger, Loren L.; Masmanidis, Sotiris; McEuen, Paul L.; Nurmikko, Arto V.; Park, Hongkun; Peterka, Darcy S.; Reid, Clay; Roukes, Michael L.; Scherer, Axel; Schnitzer, Mark; Sejnowski, Terrence J.; Shepard, Kenneth L.; Tsao, Doris; Turrigiano, Gina; Weiss, Paul S.; Xu, Chris; Yuste, Rafael; Zhuang, Xiaowei (American Chemical Society, 2013-03)
    Neuroscience is at a crossroads. Great effort is being invested into deciphering specific neural interactions and circuits. At the same time, there exist few general theories or principles that explain brain function. We ...
