Study of Wet-Chemically-Prepared Hydrogen-Terminated Silicon (111) Surfaces and a Novel Implementation of a High-Resolution Interferometer
This thesis summarizes my graduate study under the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Atom-Based Dimensional Metrology Project, in which we are developing methods for measuring sub-micrometer dimensions ...
MULTIPHOTON ABSORPTION: FABRICATION, FUNCTIONALIZATION AND APPLICATIONS
Despite the remarkable progress in micro/nano-scale fabrication that has occurred over the last decades, feature sizes are still restricted by the diffraction limit. The resolution in conventional photolithography is ...
INTERFACIAL SOLVATION AND EXCITED STATE PHOTOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF 7-AMINOCOUMARINS AT SILICA/LIQUID INTERFACES
The properties of solutes adsorbed at interfaces can be very different compared to bulk solution limits. This thesis examines how polar, hydrophilic silica surfaces and different solvents systematically change a solute's ...
Visible Light Photorelease of Carboxylate Anions by Mediated Photoinduced Electron Transfer to Pyridinium-based Protecting Groups
The use of sensitized photoinduced electron transfer (PET) to trigger release of redox-active photoremovable protecting groups (PRPGs) allows a broad range of chromophores to be selected that absorb in difference wavelength ...
