  1. Controlling the Synthesis of Palladium and Platinum Nanocrystals for Electrocatalytic Applications

    15 Sep 2021 | Contributor(s):: Chen, Ruhui

    Advisors: Younan Xia, Angus P. Wilkinson, Ronghu Wu, Z. John Zhang, Zhiqun LinNoble-metal nanocrystals with well-controlled attributes have found use in a variety of applications, including those related to electrocatalysis and energy conversion. Since the electrocatalytic performance of...

  2. Dynamics of Composite Beads in Optical Tweezers and Their Application to Study of HIV Cell Entry

    21 Sep 2015 | Contributor(s):: Beranek, Vaclav

    Advisors: Cheng Zhu, Evan Evans, Susan Napier ThomasIn this thesis, we report a novel symmetry breaking system in single-beam optical trap. The breaking of symmetry is observed in Brownian dynamics of a linked pair of beads with substantially differing radii (500nm and 100nm). Such composite...
