EXTREME-UV ATOM PROBE TOMOGRAPHY INSTRUMENTATION

NIST has created a new laser-assisted atom probe tomography (L-APT) tool. This tool uses photoionization at extreme ultra-violet (EUV) laser photon energies in the approximate range of 10 - 100 eV to promote photoionization and photo-disassociation of atomic species and molecular complexes that...

FABRICATION OF NANOWIRE-BASED DEVICES

Methods of fabricating nanowire structures and nanodevices are provided. The methods involve photolithographically depositing a nucleation center on a crystalline surface of a substrate, generating a nanoscale seed from the nucleation center, and epitaxially growing a nanowire across at least a...

FLAME RETARDANT COATINGS

Dopamine is a natural, biological compound found in the bodies of animals as neurotransmitters. Melamine is a commonly used flame retardant for cellulose and plymers that can be derived from the naturally occurring compound, urea. We have used aqueous solutions of these compounds to saturate...
