  1. 1. Optical Imaging for Nanowire Mechanics

    Author : Monica Lexholm; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sensor applications; optical imaging; nanowire mechanics; Fysicumarkivet A:2010:Lexholm;

    Abstract : In this work, we present a stroboscopic detection technique for the study of oscillating nanoscale objects. This optical read-out gives a position accuracy better than 1 nm which is a fraction of both the diffraction limit and the pixel size. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quantum Devices from the Assembly of Zero- and One-Dimensional Building Blocks

    University dissertation from Division of Solid State Physics, Box 118, 221 00 Lund

    Author : Claes Thelander; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; quantum devices; classical mechanics; quantum mechanics; relativity; statistical physics; thermodynamics; Matematisk och allmän teoretisk fysik; klassisk mekanik; kvantmekanik; relativitet; gravitation; termodynamik; statistisk fysik; Mathematical and general theoretical physics; single-electron transistor; nanowires; AFM; carbon nanotubes; Fysicumarkivet A:2003:Thelander;

    Abstract : This thesis describes novel methods for the fabrication of nanometer-scale electronic devices, such as single-electron transistors and resonant tunneling diodes, from wire- and dot-shaped building blocks. The first part of the thesis describes the manipulation of metal nanoparticles and carbon nanotubes using an atomic force microscope. READ MORE

  3. 3. The mechanics in two nanosized systems Size effect and threshold field

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mittuniversitetet

    Author : Martin Olsen; Mittuniversitetet.; [2012]

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the mechanics in two nanosized system. Paper I investigates a size effect in a cantilever nanowire affecting its resonance frequency. Paper II reveals a threshold field for the formation of a mound by the diffusion of surface atoms on a substrate under a STM-tip. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nanomechanics – Quantum Size Effects, Contacts, and Triboelectricity

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mid Sweden University

    Author : Martin Olsen; Mittuniversitetet.; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; triboelectricity; adatom; ion; charge; mound; quantum size effect; triboelctric nanogenerator; TENG; wind driven; contact; nanomechanics; fri electron model; nanowire cantilever;

    Abstract : Nanomechanics is different from the mechanics that we experience in everyday life. At the nano-scale, typically defined as 1 to 100 nanometers, some phenomena are of crucial importance, while the same phenomena can be completely neglected on a larger scale. READ MORE
