Electron microscopic characterization of diamond films grown on Si by bias-controlled chemical vapor deposition
(Journal of Materials Research, 1990-01-01)
Diamond films grown by Bias-Controlled Hot Filament Chemical Vapor Deposition (BCCVD) on silicon (Si) substrates were characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). Both plan-view and cross-sectional TEM samples ...
Bias induced diamond nucleation studies on refractory metal substrates
(Journal of Applied Physics, 1995-12-01)
The carbide forming nature of the substrate appears to be an important property when performing bias-enhanced nucleation (BEN); therefore, various refractory metals were studied since they are known carbide formers. Nucleation ...
Post-fordist desires: The commodity aesthetics of bangkok sex shows
(Feminist Legal Studies, 2010-04-01)
This essay investigates the political economy of sexuality through an interpretation of sex shows for foreigners in Bangkok, Thailand. Reading these performances as both symptoms of, and analytical commentaries on, Western ...
Graphenated carbon nanotubes for enhanced electrochemical double layer capacitor performance
(Applied Physics Letters, 2011-10-31)
This letter reports on nucleation and growth of graphene foliates protruding from the sidewalls of aligned carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and their impact on the electrochemical double-layer capacitance. Arrays of CNTs were grown ...
On-chip electron-impact ion source using carbon nanotube field emitters
(Applied Physics Letters, 2007-03-30)
A lateral on-chip electron-impact ion source utilizing a carbon nanotube field emission electron source was fabricated and characterized. The device consists of a cathode with aligned carbon nanotubes, a control grid, and ...
