The presence in space of micrometeoroids and orbital debris, particularly in the lower earth orbit, presents a continuous hazard to orbiting satellites, spacecrafts and the international space station. Space debris includes all non-functional, man-made objects and fragments. As the population of debris continues to grow, the probability of...

Vollebregt, S. (author)
Interconnects in integrated circuits (IC) are the major cause of power dissipation and delay. 3D integration has been proposed as a method to reduce these issues. For this 3D integration, fabrication of high aspect ratio reliable vertical interconnects (vias) are required. For this new materials, like carbon nanotubes (CNT), are being considered...

Jarillo-Herrero, P.D. (author)
Electronic transport through nanostructures can be very different from trans- port in macroscopic conductors, especially at low temperatures. Carbon na- notubes are tiny cylinders made of carbon atoms. Their remarkable electronic and mechanical properties, together with their small size (a few nm in diameter), make them very attractive for...

Janssen, J.W. (author)
Carbon nanotubes are small cylindrical molecules with a typical diameter of 1 nm and lengths of up to micrometers. These intriguing molecules exhibit, depending on the exact atomic structure, either semiconducting or metallic behavior. This makes them ideal candidates for possible future molecular electronics. In this thesis Janssen describes...

Götz, G.T.J. (author)
We experimentally investigate Quantum Dots, formed in Carbon Nanotubes. The first part of this thesis deals with charge sensing on such quantum dots. The charge sensor is a metallic Single-electron-transistor, sensitive to the charge of a single electron on the quantum dot. We use this technique for real-time charge readout and precise tuning of...

Poelma, R.H. (author)
This thesis describes a series of experiments and fabrication methods on high-aspect-ratio 3D microstructures for wafer level packaging and 3D heterogeneous system integration (3D-HSI) using novel materials such as carbon nanotubes and thick-film photo-resists. Furthermore, theoretical and experimental research efforts are made to understand the...

Tatur, J. (author)
This research focuses on the iron storage protein ferritin. Ferritin is a protein involved in iron homeostasis by storing Fe(II) excess in the form of an Fe(III) mineral core in the presence of oxygen and by releasing iron during iron deficiency. Ferritins are vital for human health. Their malfunction may lead among other diseases to anemia,...

Meerwaldt, H.B. (author)
A carbon nanotube (CNT) is a remarkable material and can be thought of as a single-atom thick cylinder of carbon atoms capped of with a semisphere. This is called a single-walled CNT and, depending on how the cylinder is rolled up, CNTs are either semiconducting or metallic. A CNT is made into a mechanical resonator by suspending it between two...

Postma, H.W.Ch. (author)
In this thesis Postma presents transport experiments performed on individual single-wall carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes are molecules entirely made of carbon atoms. The electronic properties are determined by the exact symmetry of the nanotube lattice, resulting in either metallic or semiconducting behaviour. Due to their small diameter,...

Malagu, M. (author)
The development of carbon nanotube(CNT)-polymer composites advocates for a better understanding of their physical and mechanical properties that depend on the diameter of the embedded CNTs. Given that the experimental assessment of size effects is extremely difficult, the use of numerical models can be enormously helpful. However, since size...

We have developed a fabrication process for incorporating a gate electrode into suspended single-walled carbon nanotube structures for scanning tunneling spectroscopy studies. The nanotubes are synthesized by chemical vapor deposition directly on a metal surface. The high temperature (800?°C) involved in the growth process poses challenging...

The potential application of carbon nanotubes as electron sources in electron microscopes is analyzed. The resolution and probe current that can be obtained from a carbon nanotube emitter in a low-voltage scanning electron microscope are calculated and compared to the state of the art using Schottky electron sources. Many analytical equations...

We study thermoelectric power under strong magnetic field (TPM) in carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and quantum wires (QWs) of nonlinear optical, optoelectronic, and related materials. The corresponding results for QWs of III-V, ternary, and quaternary compounds form a special case of our generalized analysis. The TPM has also been investigated in QWs of...

We investigated the local density of states (LDOS) of extended individual metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes using low-temperature scanning tunneling spectroscopy. We observed that the LDOS oscillates with energy close to the Fermi level. The oscillation period of about 50 meV varies with position on the nanotube. Maps of the LDOS reveal...

We use scanning photocurrent microscopy (SPCM) to investigate individual suspended semiconducting carbon nanotube devices where the potential profile is engineered by means of local gates. In situ tunable p-n junctions can be generated at any position along the nanotube axis. Combining SPCM with transport measurements allows a detailed...

We have fabricated suspended metal paddle resonators with carbon nanotubes functioning as self-detecting torsional springs. We observe gate-tunable resonances that either tune to higher or to lower frequencies when increasing the dc voltage on the back gate. We attribute the former modes to flexural vibrations of the paddle resonator, while the...
