Graphene films grown over epitaxial metal films deposited on single-crystalline substrates give unique micropits with rectangular and triangular shapes, reflecting the crystallographic orientation of the substrate.
Gallium arsenide is infiltrated for the first time within porous nanoparticle-based periodic multilayers to yield a new structure displaying finely tuned enhanced optical reflectance.
A new heteroepitaxial method of producing Ti02 nanomaterials with size, shape, and array control is discovered.
In situ mechanical testing of 50-mm-diameter bundles of uniaxially compressed carbon nanotubes reveals periodic buckle nucleation and propagation.
