Carbon-, Gold- and Iron-based Nanomaterials – Synthesis, Characterization and Potential ApplicationsDownload
Nanomaterials are important building blocks of nanotechnology. Their size dependent unique properties (optical, magnetic, electrical, etc.) have the potential to revolutionize applications ranging from medicine to electronics. Of the various nanomaterials, carbon-based systems including porous...
As one of the most commonly applied semiconductors, nanostructured silicon has received considerable attention over the past several decades due to its suitable band gap for light harvesting (1.2 eV for bulk crystal and up to 1.9 eV for nanocrystals), unique tunable photoluminescence (PL) and...
Silicon nanocrystals (Si-NCs) have been suggested for sensing and lasing applications due to their low-toxicity and compatibility with existing microelectronic technologies. Their broad luminescence, due to homogeneous (150 meV or 40 nm at room temperature) and inhomogeneous broadening, may...
Silicon nanocrystals (SiNCs) are a class of quantum dots (QDs) exhibiting unique size- and surface-dependent optoelectronic properties. They have shown promise as a safe and viable alternative to traditional compound QDs, mainly because silicon is non-toxic and earth-abundant. These NCs are...
Silicon (Si) based nanomaterials have the potential to revolutionize the microelectronics industry by introducing desirable nanoscale properties into electronic components without compromising the material composition. They have also been proposed as a greener alternative for many Group III-V and...
Silicon nanocrystals (SiNCs) have been suggested as promising candidates for bioimaging because of their abundance, biocompatibility, and stable photoluminescent properties. However, “naked” SiNCs are insoluble in water and very reactive. As a result, NC surface functionalization is necessary to...
With the increased strain on the world’s petroleum supplies, research efforts are turning toward establishing renewable sources of carbon in the generation of materials that are essential for consumer products ranging from pharmaceuticals to polymers. Canola oil is one such renewable resource...
Owing to their rich, tailorable surface chemistry, low toxicity, and elemental abundance,silicon nanocrystals (SiNCs) present an attractive alternative to fluorescentorganic dyes and traditional quantum dots for bioimaging, optoelectronics, and chemicalsensors. These applications capitalize on...
