Electrophoretic Deposition Of Gallium With High Deposition Rate, Hanfei Zhang, Yiping Mao, Sunand Santhanagopalan, Dennis Desheng Meng Dec 2014

Electrophoretic Deposition Of Gallium With High Deposition Rate, Hanfei Zhang, Yiping Mao, Sunand Santhanagopalan, Dennis Desheng Meng

Michigan Tech Publications

In this work, electrophoretic deposition (EPD) is reported to form gallium thin film with high deposition rate and low cost while avoiding the highly toxic chemicals typically used in electroplating. A maximum deposition rate of ~0.6 μm/min, almost one order of magnitude higher than the typical value reported for electroplating, is obtained when employing a set of proper deposition parameters. The thickness of the film is shown to increase with deposition time when sequential deposition is employed. The concentration of Mg(NO3)2, the charging salt, is also found to be a critical factor to control the ...

Recent Advances In The Field Of Bionanotechnology: An Insight Into Optoelectric Bacteriorhodopsin, Quantum Dots, And Noble Metal Nanoclusters, Christopher Knoblauch, Mark Griep, Craig Friedrich Oct 2014

Recent Advances In The Field Of Bionanotechnology: An Insight Into Optoelectric Bacteriorhodopsin, Quantum Dots, And Noble Metal Nanoclusters, Christopher Knoblauch, Mark Griep, Craig Friedrich

Michigan Tech Publications

Molecular sensors and molecular electronics are a major component of a recent research area known as bionanotechnology, which merges biology with nanotechnology. This new class of biosensors and bioelectronics has been a subject of intense research over the past decade and has found application in a wide variety of fields. The unique characteristics of these biomolecular transduction systems has been utilized in applications ranging from solar cells and single-electron transistors (SETs) to fluorescent sensors capable of sensitive and selective detection of a wide variety of targets, both organic and inorganic. This review will discuss three major systems in the area ...
