Nanoscale junctions for single molecule electronics fabricated using bilayer nanoimprint lithography combined with feedback controlled electromigration (2019)
Journal Article
Gee, A., Jaafar, A. H., & Kemp, N. (2020). Nanoscale junctions for single molecule electronics fabricated using bilayer nanoimprint lithography combined with feedback controlled electromigration. Nanotechnology, 31(15), https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6528/ab6473

Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) is a fast, simple and high throughput technique that allows fabrication of structures with nanometre precision features at low cost. We present an advanced bilayer nanoimprint lithography approach to fabricate four termi...

Dynamic electric field alignment of metal-organic framework micro- rods (2019)
Journal Article
Reithofer, M. R., Jaafar, A. H., Hall, C. H., Young, A. J., Cheng, F., Young, A. J., …Chin, J. M. (2019). Dynamic electric field alignment of metal-organic framework micro- rods. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 141(33), 12989-12993. https://doi.org/10.1021/jacs.9b06320

Alignment of Metal Organic Framework (MOF) crystals has previously been performed via careful control of oriented MOF growth on substrates, as well as by dynamic magnetic alignment. We show here that microrod crystals of the MOF NU-1000 can also be d... Read More about Dynamic electric field alignment of metal-organic framework micro- rods.

Method to reduce the formation of crystallites in ZnO nanorod thin-films grown via ultra-fast microwave heating (2018)
Journal Article
Gray, R. J., Jaafar, A. H., Verrelli, E., & Kemp, N. T. (2018). Method to reduce the formation of crystallites in ZnO nanorod thin-films grown via ultra-fast microwave heating. Thin solid films, 662, 116-122. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tsf.2018.07.034

© 2018 This paper discusses the nucleation and growth mechanisms of ZnO nanorod thin-films and larger sized crystallites that form within the solution and on surfaces during an ultra-fast microwave heating growth process. In particular, the work focu... Read More about Method to reduce the formation of crystallites in ZnO nanorod thin-films grown via ultra-fast microwave heating.
