The low contrast of biomolecules in TEM has been a great obstacle for their structure determination and hence to the understanding of their structure-function relation. Historically, single DNA strands remained one the most difficult classes of biomolecular specimens to image, due to low electron scattering strength of its constituent elements....

A method to grow multi layers graphene (MLG) just by thermal annealing in an inert atmosphere is reported. A molybdenum (Mo) catalyst layer is used in combination with a solid amorphous carbon (a-C) source on top or below the Mo layer. The formation of MLG directly on top of the catalyst substrate surface is confirmed by Raman spectroscopy,...

As CMOS feature size is reaching atomic dimensions, unjustifiable static power, reliability, and economic implications are exacerbating, thereby prompting for conducting research on new materials, devices, and/or computation paradigms. Within this context, graphene nanoribbons (GNRs), owing to graphene's excellent electronic properties, may...

In this paper, we augment a trapezoidal Quantum Point Contact topology with top gates to form a butterfly Graphene Nanoribbon (GNR) structure and demonstrate that by adjusting its topology, its conductance map can mirror basic Boolean functions, thus one can use such structures instead of transistors to build carbon-based gates and circuits....

Despite theoretical predictions that graphene should be impermeable to all gases, practical experiments on sealed graphene nanodrums show small leak rates. Thus far, the exact mechanism for this permeation has remained unclear, because different potential leakage pathways have not been studied separately. Here, we demonstrate a sealing method...

Despite numerous theoretical investigations on the mechanical properties of graphene, an accurate identification of its material behavior is still unattained. One hypothesis for this uncertainty is that modeling graphene as a static membrane cannot describe the strong coupling between mechanics and thermodynamics of this structure. Therefore,...

Stochastic switching between the two bistable states of a strongly driven mechanical resonator enables detection of weak signals based on probability distributions, in a manner that mimics biological systems. However, conventional silicon resonators at the microscale require a large amount of fluctuation power to achieve a switching rate in the...

Limitations such as lack of detected stationary signal and slow signal recovery after detection currently affect graphene-based chemi-sensors operating at room temperature. In this work, we model the behavior of a sensor in a test chamber having limited volume and simulating the environmental conditions. From this model, we mathematically derive...

Graphene's maximized surface-to-volume ratio, high conductance, mechanical strength, and flexibility make it a promising nanomaterial. However, large-scale graphene production is typically cost-intensive. This manuscript describes a microbial reduction approach for producing graphene that utilizes the bacterium Shewanella oneidensis in...

The current study focuses on the development of silanized graphene oxide reinforced basalt fiber/epoxy composites for enhanced tribological and viscoelastic properties. The modified-graphene oxide nanoplatelets were characterized using energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and Raman analyses. Pin-on-disk wear test and dynamic mechanical...

Micro and nanomechanical sensors are indispensable in modern consumer electronics, automotive and medical industries. Gas pressure sensors are currently the most widespread membrane-based micromechanical sensors. By reducing their size, their unit costs and energy consumption drops, making them more attractive for integration in new applications...

The information that can be extracted from DNA base sequences, is important for our understanding of biology, for insights in disease, and the way we practice medicine. The technology that one uses to determine DNA-base sequences is called ‘DNA sequencing’. A portable device that enables fast and accurate sequencing, can potentially greatly...

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) can not only image the topography of surfaces at atomic resolution, but can also measure accurately the different interaction forces, like repulsive, adhesive and lateral existing between an AFM tip and the sample surface. Based on AFM, various extended techniques have been developed such as colloidal probe AFM,...

The wide-spread adoption of solar thermal absorbers is currently hampered by their low absorption efficiencies and their high capital cost. As a result, a number of initiatives, including direct absorption solar collectors (DASC), are currently underway to improve the absorber efficiencies. In this regard, this study focused on application of...

The effects of graphene stacking are investigated by comparing the results of methane adsorption energy, electronic performance, and the doping feasibility of five dopants (i.e., B, N, Al, Si, and P) via first-principles theory. Both zigzag and armchair graphenes are considered. It is found that the zigzag graphene with Bernal stacking has...

The bending rigidity of two-dimensional (2D) materials is a key parameter for understanding the mechanics of 2D NEMS devices. The apparent bending rigidity of graphene membranes at macroscopic scale differs from theoretical predictions at micro-scale. This difference is believed to originate from thermally induced dynamic ripples in these...

In this work, we synthesized carbon hollow spheres (CHSs) using the silica templating method, encapsulated 2-mercaptobenzimidazole (MBI) inhibitor in the CHSs and evaluated their corrosion inhibition performance upon exposure of mild steel to a saline solution containing the released inhibitor. The effects of silica template surface...
