Electrochemical Atomic Layer Epitaxy Deposition of Ultrathin SnTe Films

Taise M. Manhabosco, Shaul Aloni, Tevye R. Kuykendall, Sara M. Manhabosco, Ana Bárbara Batista, Jaqueline S. Soares, Ana Paula M. Barboza, Alan. B. de Oliveira, Ronaldo J. C. Batista, Jeffrey J. Urban
Received: September 06, 2019; Published: October 29, 2019; doi:10.21926/rpm.1904005

Abstract: Tin telluride (SnTe) ultrathin films were electrochemically deposited on polycrystalline and monocrystalline gold substrates by electrochemical atomic layer epitaxy (ECALE) method. Electrochemical behavior of Sn and Te were systematically studied by means of cyclic voltammetry. Cyclic voltammetry cu [...]

Super-Resolution of Nano-Materials and Quantum Effects Obtained by Microspheres

Y. Ben-Aryeh
Received: July 29, 2019; Published: September 04, 2019; doi:10.21926/rpm.1903003

Abstract: Microsphere super-resolutions, which are beyond the Abbe classical limit, are described. The conversion of evanescent waves to propagating waves, are analyzed by using the geometry of the microsphere. In microsphere experiments a nanojet is produced near the focal plane where its width is smaller th [...]

Evaluation of Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) for Passive Rear Projection Screen Application

H. Hakemi, O. Pinshow, D. Gal-Fuss
Received: June 24, 2019; Published: August 07, 2019; doi:10.21926/rpm.1903002

Abstract: In past years, there have been many attempts to commercialize PDLC for Rear Projection Screen (RPS) screens as an integrated part of its main application as electrically switchable films and glass products. This application is due to exceptional image quality of PDLC at wide viewing angle. However, [...]

Valued Applications of Lignin Nanoparticles

Alexander Henn, Maija-Liisa Mattinen
Received: March 08, 2019; Published: April 26, 2019; doi:10.21926/rpm.1902001

Abstract: Technical lignins from the biorefinery, pulp, and paper industries are largely underutilized, even though this aromatic and randomly structured biopolymer could be an interesting raw material for advanced applications in addition to bulk daily goods. Recently, colloidal lignin particles (CLPs) have [...]
