  1. 1. Nanotribology, Surface Interactions and Characterization An AFM Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rubén Álvarez-Asencio; KTH.; [2014]

    Abstract : When two surfaces achieve contact, then contact phenomena such as adhesion, friction and wear can occur, which are of great interest in many disciplines, including physics, physical chemistry, material chemistry, and life and health sciences. These phenomena are largely determined by the nature and magnitude of the surface forces such as van der Waals, capillary and hydration forces. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies of Nanowire Friction using AFM-based Manipulation

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Gabriela Conache; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nanomanipulation; AFM; Nanowires; Nanotribology; Friction; Nanotechnology.;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present friction studies on InAs nanowires pushed laterally across surfaces by an AFM tip. The contact length in the direction of movement is of the order of a few tens of nanometers, and is thus comparable to that found in existing point-contact studies, but perpendicular to the motion the wire can be several microns in length.

    Abstract : With the ongoing miniaturisation of devices, the interest in characterising nanoscale physical properties has strongly increased. To further advance the field of nanotechnology new scientific tools are required. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phase Transformations in Solid Pharmaceutical Materials Studied by AFM, ESCA, DSC and SAXS

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Denny Mahlin; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; polymer; lipid; lactose; phase transformation; phase formation; crystallisation; AFM; X-ray diffraction; ESCA; DSC; solid dispersion; Fysikalisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Mixing excipients is a common way to produce pharmaceutical materials with suitable properties for drug formulation. An understanding of the basic mechanisms involved in the formation and transformation of the structures of solid state mixtures is crucial if one is to be able to produce materials with the desired properties in a reliable way.

  5. 5. Probing nonlinear electrical properties at the nanoscale Studies in multifrequency AFM

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Riccardo Borgani; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Atomic Force Microscopy; Nonlinear dynamics; Multifrequency; Contact potential difference; Conductance; Fast dynamics; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Nanostructured materials promise great advances in diverse and active research fields such as energy harvesting and storage, corrosion prevention and high-density memories. Electrical characterization at the nanometer scale is key to understanding and optimizing the performance of these materials, and therefore central to the progress of nanotechnology. READ MORE
