• A review of demodulation techniques for amplitude-modulation atomic force microscopy 

      Ruppert, Michael G.; Harcombe, David M.; Ragazzon, Michael Remo Palmén; Moheimani, S.O. Reza; Fleming, Andrew J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In this review paper, traditional and novel demodulation methods applicable to amplitude-modulation atomic force microscopy are implemented on a widely used digital processing system. As a crucial bandwidth-limiting component ...
    • Collembola cuticles and the three-phase line tension 

      Gundersen, Håkon A Holm; Leinaas, Hans Petter; Thaulow, Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The cuticles of most springtails (Collembola) are superhydrophobic, but the mechanism has not been described in detail. Previous studies have suggested that overhanging surface structures play an important role, but such ...
    • Cyclodextrin inhibits zinc corrosion by destabilizing point defect formation in the oxide layer 

      Altin, Abdulrahman; Krzywiecki, Maciej; Sarfraz, Adnan; Toparli, Cigdem; Laska, Claudius; Kerger, Philipp; Zeradjanin, Aleksandar; Mayrhofer, Karl J.J.; Rohwerder, Michael; Erbe, Andreas (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Corrosion inhibitors are added in low concentrations to corrosive solutions for reducing the corrosion rate of a metallic material. Their mechanism of action is typically the blocking of free metal surface by adsorption, ...
    • Functionalized TiO2 nanoparticles by single-step hydrothermal synthesis: the role of the silane coupling agents 

      Dalod, Antoine Robert Marie; Henriksen, Lars; Grande, Tor; Einarsrud, Mari-Ann (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      A simple, robust and versatile hydrothermal synthesis route to in situ functionalized TiO2 nanoparticles was developed using titanium(IV) isopropoxide as Ti-precursor and selected silane coupling agents (3-aminopropyltri ...
    • Lyapunov estimation for high-speed demodulation in multifrequency atomic force microscopy 

      Harcombe, David M.; Ruppert, Michael G.; Ragazzon, Michael Remo Palmén; Fleming, Andrew J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      An important issue in the emerging field of multifrequency atomic force microscopy (MF-AFM) is the accurate and fast demodulation of the cantilever-tip deflection signal. As this signal consists of multiple frequency ...
