The need for high-performance, solid-state
H2 gas sensors is one research effort aimed
at enabling the future hydrogen economy.
Improving the gas-sensing properties of
semiconducting oxide materials such as tin
oxide, zinc oxide, etc., necessitates the
control microstructure and composition.
This study compares the effect of
dimensionality with the effect...
Magnetic nanostructures are of great
interest as platforms for medical applications,
including biomedical imaging and
targeted cancer therapy. However, current
magnetic nanostructures are limited by
magnetic strength and insufficient
biocompatibility. In this research project,
significant progress was made to address
these confines, including 1) increasing
magnetic responsiveness by replacing the...
Two-phase multiferroic nanostructures
have the potential to display magnetoelectricity
(ME) through interphase mechanical
coupling. Nanoscale ME-based technology
may lead to the next generation of computer
memory. In this research, soft electron
beam lithography (soft-eBL) was used to
fabricate submicron-sized structures of
cobalt ferrite (magnetostrictive) and barium
titanate (piezoelectric) as bottom...
In modern medicine, physicians destroy
otherwise healthy tissues in patients’ bodies
because of the lack of site-target specificity
and sensitivity in detecting and attacking
cancerous cells. Many cancer patients are
left with the difficult task of weighing the
benefits against the harm of undergoing
current cancer treatments. Members of the...
