The fast progress nanotechnology and nano-science in the last few decades indebted to electron beam lithography (EBL) a powerful top-down nanofabrication approach. As the name suggest this method is a lithography method functions by electron illumination of the e-beam resist… Read More ›
Dr. Nicolas Schaeffer (Researcher at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France) Nanomaerials exhibit chemical and physical properties that are not those of the bulk, but are size-dependent. This is due to the nanomaterials having a very high surface-to-volume ratio…. Read More ›
Transistors are key components in many integrated circuits where they are used mainly as switching or amplifying devices. One of the most popular type of transistors is metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor or in short MOSFET which conventionally is consisted of a p-doped substrate… Read More ›
Four general approaches towards the bottom-up production of noble metal nanoparticles (invited article)
Dr. Nicolas Schaeffer (Researcher at Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France) Materials with sizes at the nanometer scale with various sizes, shapes and natures are nowadays produced, sometimes at industrial scales.
I wrote this post based on a project that a friend of mine (Iman Ghane Ghanad) and I performed together. As material scientists time to time we are dealing with processes which require to model a complex system. Unfortunately most of the time finding… Read More ›
