Droplet stability at fluid interfaces

Droplet stability at fluid interfaces

Using a novel optical technique we demonstrated the existence of micron size water droplets at these interfaces. Read more

Electrochemical scanning tunnel microscopy

Electrochemical scanning tunnel microscopy

Understanding the electronic transport properties of nanoconfined systems under wetting conditions is essential for many applications ranging from molecular nano-junctions to nanoelectronics. Read more

Transport properties of graphene

Transport properties of graphene

The transport properties of graphene are altered by interactions originating from molecular and atomic species adsorbed from the atmosphere on the graphene. Read more

Nanocarbon for Photonics and Optoelectronics

Nanocarbon for Photonics and Optoelectronics

Recent linear and nonlinear spectroscopic and optoelectronic results prove that Nanocarbon has much to offer in the photonics arena Read more

Biosensor Arrays

Biosensor Arrays

Quantitative time-resolved measurement of membrane protein–ligand interactions using microcantilever array sensors Read more

Spin Electronics

Spin Electronics

There is an increasing demand for magnetic materials that exhibit high perpendicular anisotropy to assure thermal stability in nano-scale spintronic devices. Read more

2-Dimensional Materials

2-Dimensional Materials

Many 3-D compounds exist as stacked layers of 2-D materials. If these 2-D layers could be isolated they could become a diverse source of 2-D crystals. Read more

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

By means of ab-initio simulations we provide a comprehensive scenario for hydrogen oxidation reactions at the Ni/YSZ anode of SOFCs. Read more
