• Effect of chain architecture on the compression behavior of nanoscale polyethylene particles 

      Wu, Jianyang; He, Jianying; Odegard, Gregory; Zhang, Zhiliang (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Polymeric particles with controlled internal molecular architectures play an important role as constituents in many composite materials for a number of emerging applications. In this study, classical molecular dynamics ...
    • Effects of substrate annealing on the gold-catalyzed growth of ZnO nanostructures 

      Weigand, Christian Carl; Skåre, Daniel; Ladam, Cecile; Grepstad, Jostein; Weman, Helge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The effects of thermal substrate pretreatment on the growth of Au-catalyzed ZnO nanostructures by pulsed laser deposition are investigated. C-plane sapphire substrates are annealed prior to deposition of a thin Au layer. ...
    • Growing gold nanostructures for shape-selective cellular uptake 

      Bandyopadhyay, Sulalit; McDonagh, Birgitte Hjelmeland; Singh, Gurvinder; Raghunathan, Karthik; Sandvig, Axel; Sandvig, Ioanna; Andreassen, Jens-Petter; Glomm, Wilhelm (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      With development in the synthesis of shape- and size-dependent gold (Au) nanostructures (NSs) and their applications in nanomedicine, one of the biggest challenges is to understand the interaction of these shapes with ...
    • Size-dependent mechanical behavior of nanoscale polymer particles through coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulation 

      Zhao, Junhua; Nagao, Shijo; Odegard, Gregory; Zhang, Zhiliang; Kristiansen, Helge; He, Jianying (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Anisotropic conductive adhesives (ACAs) are promising materials used for producing ultra-thin liquid-crystal displays. Because the mechanical response of polymer particles can have a significant impact in the performance ...
