    We have used an atomic-force microscope tip to mechanically buckle single-walled carbon nanotubes. The resistance of the induced defects ranged from 10 to 100 kΩ and varied with the local Fermi level, as determined by scanned-gate microscopy. By forming two closely spaced defects on metallic...

    We demonstrated a deposition of nanometer-scale Zn dots using the selective photodissociation of adsorption-phase diethylzinc with a nonresonant optical near field, where the photon energy is lower than that of the absorption edge of gas-phase diethylzinc. We achieved nanometric prenucleation by...

    We study the effect of wavelength on the laser-induced phase transformation in semiconductor quantum dots. In our earlier report [Yakovlev et al., Appl. Phys. Lett. 76, 2050 (2000)], we discovered that a nanosecond pulse of 532 nm radiation results in a phase transformation of CdS nanocrystals...

    We present quasi-steady-state photoinduced absorption measurements on thin films of CdSe nanocrystals dispersed in a polystyrene matrix. For nanocrystals treated with pyridine we observe an intense, size-dependent absorption peaking in the mid-infrared when the samples are irradiated with...

    We present a logarithmically perturbed two-dimensional isotropic oscillator model of a quantum-dot nanostructure. The logarithmic potential has an ionic line charge physical origin. We estimate the magnitude of this line charge and we obtain the matrix elements required by perturbation theory....

    Group IV semiconductors could have a completely new symmetry when the size is reduced to the range of several nanometers. For Si, the icosahedra are more stable than bulk-like quantum dots (QDs) for d < 5 nm (or N < 2400). At a given size, the icosahedral QDs are expected to be the most...
