Research teams from the UIUC investigate the friction between single-layer graphene and AFM tips under external electric fields with the help of MikroMasch HQ:CSC37/No Al and HQ:CSC37/tipless/Al BS AFM probes.
“While the primary effect in most systems is electrostatically controllable adhesion, graphene in contact with semiconducting tips exhibits a regime of unexpectedly enhanced and highly tunable friction.”

Mechanical dynamics of nanoscale interfaces in epoxy nanocomposites over a broad range of temperaturesTue Sep 19 2023

Mechanical dynamics of nanoscale interfaces in epoxy nanocomposites over a broad range of temperatures is studied with novel Nanorheology AFM, a.k.a. nanoscale dynamic mechanical analysis (nDMA) and our soft tapping mode AFM probes Multi75Al-G.

"Our nDMA results also show good agreement with those measured by other well-accepted AFM methods at the nanoscale as well as macroDMA over a broad temperature range, which might initiate a new paradigm for characterizing nanoscale dynamic mechanical responses for various structural nanocomposites."

“Heparin is one of the most important naturally derived anticoagulant agents. Its medicinal role originates from the ability to bind coagulant factors and inhibit the blood-clotting cascade… However, in clinical practice, it is of vital importance to reverse its anticoagulant effect to restore the blood-clotting cascade and circumvent side effects. Inspired by protein cages that can encapsulate and protect their cargo from surroundings, we utilize three designed protein copolymers to sequester heparin into inert nanoparticles.”

NANOSENSORS Comparative analysis of frictional behavior and mechanism of molybdenum ditelluride with different structures - news

Comparative analysis of frictional behavior and mechanism of molybdenum ditelluride with different structuresMon Sep 11 2023

Two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) have layered structures with excellent tribological properties. *

Since the energy difference between hexagonal-molybdenum ditelluride (2H-MoTe2) and distorted octahedral-molybdenum ditelluride (1T’-MoTe2) is very small among the transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), MoTe2 becomes one of the most promising candidates for phase engineering. *

In the article “Comparative analysis of frictional behavior and mechanism of molybdenum ditelluride with different structures”  Lina Zhang, Xinfeng Tan, Jianguo Jiao, Dan Guo and Jianbin Luo report that they found that the friction force and friction coefficient (COF) of 2H-MoTe2 were an order of magnitude smaller than those of 1T’-MoTe2 by the atomic force microscope (AFM) experiments. *

Polyethylene Glycol 20k. Does It Fluoresce?Mon Aug 21 2023

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a polyether compound commonly used in biological research and medicine because it is biologically inert. *

This simple polymer exists in variable chain lengths (and molecular weights). As they are devoid of any contiguous π-system, PEGs are expected to lack fluorescence properties. However, recent studies suggested the occurrence of fluorescence properties in non-traditional fluorophores like PEGs. *

In the article “Polyethylene Glycol 20k. Does It Fluoresce?” Bethany F. Laatsch, Michael Brandt, Brianna Finke, Carl J. Fossum, Miles J. Wackett, Harrison R. Lowater, Alex Narkiewicz-Jodko, Christine N. Le, Thao Yang, Elizabeth M. Glogowski, Scott C. Bailey-Hartsel, Sudeep Bhattacharyya and Sanchita Hati report a comprehensive investigation of the molecular basis of the fluorescent properties of PEG 20k molecules using combined experimental and computational methods. Fluorescence measurements of PEG 20k were conducted in aqueous solutions as well as in the presence of metal ions. *

NANOSENSORS Electrical and magnetic anisotropies in van der Waals multiferroic CuCrP2S6 - news

Electrical and magnetic anisotropies in van der Waals multiferroic CuCrP2S6Mon Aug 07 2023

In the field of modern information storage, the physical properties could act as the storage “medium”, such as electric polarization (dipole orientation) of ferroelectric materials, or spin polarization (magnetic vector) of magnetic materials. *

Multiferroic materials have great potential in non-volatile devices for low-power and ultra-high density information storage, owing to their unique characteristic of coexisting ferroelectric and ferromagnetic orders.
