Integrative Biomimetics of Autonomous Hexapedal Locomotion

pg. 1-32.

  • (2019)
Despite substantial advances in many different fields of neurorobotics in general, and biomimetic robots in particular, a key challenge is the integration of concepts: to collate and combine research on disparate and conceptually disjunct research areas in the neurosciences and engineering sciences. We claim that the development of suitable robotic integration platforms is of particular relevance to make such integration of concepts work in practice. Here, we provide an example for a hexapod robotic integration platform for autonomous locomotion. In a sequence of six focus sections dealing with aspects of intelligent, embodied motor control in insects and multipedal robots—ranging from compliant actuation, distributed proprioception and control of multiple legs, the formation of internal representations to the use of an internal body model—we introduce the walking robot HECTOR as a research platform for integrative biomimetics of hexapedal locomotion. Owing to its 18 highly sensorized, compliant actuators, light-weight exoskeleton, distributed and expandable hardware architecture, and an appropriate dynamic simulation framework, HECTOR offers many opportunities to integrate research effort across biomimetics research on actuation, sensory-motor feedback, inter-leg coordination, and cognitive abilities such as motion planning and learning of its own body size.

Magnetic films for electromagnetic actuation in MEMS switches

In: Microsystem Technologies vol. 24 pg. 1987-1994.

DOI: 10.1007/s00542-017-3595-2

This paper investigates the fabrication of magnetic films via electroplating to be applied into electromagnetic actuated micro electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) switches. Cobalt and nickel films (1 µm thicknesses) were deposited on gold coated silicon substrates via electrochemical deposition. Different deposition conditions were investigated, regarding temperature and deposition voltage. The films morphologies were characterized via atomic force microscopy, while the magnetic properties of the films were characterized via vibrating sample magnetometer measurements. In order to evaluate the integration of these magnetic films into MEMS switches with low energy consumption, a mathematical model was developed and the results show that these films can be applied into efficient actuation with reduced power dissipation.

Modeling Vaporization, Gas Generation and Venting in Li-Ion Battery Cells with a Dimethyl Carbonate Electrolyte

In: Electrochemical Society Journal vol. 164 pg. A1858-A1865.

  • (2017)
This paper presents a mathematical model developed for predicting the temperature-pressure behavior and gas generation inside 18650 LCO/Graphite cells with a DMC (Dimethyl Carbonate) electrolyte. The cell was modeled using oven heating conditions, and the analysis was done at time intervals around the venting event. The paper also presents the thermodynamic property table for DMC, as extracted from different resources and calculated using various assumptions. The model was developed by deriving the energy balance for an unsteady-flow control volume and applying the isentropic flow equations corresponding to the venting of gas. The results show that the model fails to predict the pressure measured experimentally when no gas is generated inside. When adding the gas generation due to pre-venting reactions occurring, the model can predict the pressure profile measured experimentally.

Plastic Reactor Suitable for High Pressure and Supercritical Fluid Electrochemistry

In: Journal of The Electrochemical Society vol. 164 pg. H375-H381.

  • (2017)
The paper describes a reactor suitable for high pressure, particularly supercritical fluid, electrochemistry and electrodeposition at pressures up to 30 MPa at 115°C. The reactor incorporates two key, new design concepts; a plastic reactor vessel and the use of o-ring sealed brittle electrodes. These two innovations widen what can be achieved with supercritical fluid electrodeposition. The suitability of the reactor for electroanalytical experiments is demonstrated by studies of the voltammetry of decamethylferrocene in supercritical difluromethane and for electrodeposition is demonstrated by the deposition of Bi. The application of the reactor to the production of nanostructures is demonstrated by the electrodeposition of ∼80 nm diameter Te nanowires into an anodic alumina on silicon template. Key advantages of the new reactor design include reduction of the number of wetted materials, particularly glues used for insulating electrodes, compatability with reagents incompatible with steel, compatability with microfabricated planar multiple electrodes, small volume which brings safety advantages and reduced reagent useage, and a significant reduction in experimental time.

Electrochemical analysis of nanostructured iron oxides using cyclic voltammetry and scanning electrochemical microscopy

In: Electrochimica Acta vol. 222 pg. 1326-1334.

  • (2016)
Iron oxides in general and especially hematite, α-Fe2O3, have become promising materials for the alkaline water electrolysis and photoelectrochemical water splitting, respectively. In the present study electrocatalytic electrodes with a thin film of α-Fe2O3 and with vertically aligned α-Fe2O3 nanowires were prepared. Cyclic voltammograms of the α-Fe2O3 nanowires revealed differences including a series of three unreported cathodic signals when compared to previously published voltammograms for polycrystalline iron oxides. The generation-collection mode of scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) using nanostructured Pt microdisc probes was exploited to detect soluble reaction products formed at the voltammetric peaks of the α-Fe2O3 electrode. SECM tip-substrate voltammetry unexpectedly showed that the reduction of FeVI to FeIII on the cathodic sweep is accompanied by significant O2 evolution.

Tactile sensing is a key element for various animals that interact with the environment and surrounding objects. Touch provides information about contact forces, torques and pressure distribution and by the means of exploration it provides object properties such as geometry, stiffness and texture[5]. For humans, extracting high level information from touch provides a better understanding of the objects manipulated while for insects it is essential for locomotion[3]. While robot designers have been using vision systems to provide the robot with information about its surroundings, this is not always trivial to obtain, dealing with limited accuracy, occlusions and calibration problems. In terms of sensors for static stimuli, such as pressure, there are a range of technologies that can be used to manufacture transducers with various results[5]. A simple approach is to use fingertips with a 6-DOF force-torque sensor for estimating contact conditions[1], but this only allows a single point of contact and is costly. In terms of fingertip and foot tip prototypes, tactile sensors are used for multi modal sensing, similar to biology, for pressure and dynamic stimuli. In this respect Hosoda et al. [4] propose an anthropomorphic fingertip which has randomly distributed straingauges and PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) transducers. In [7] a biomimetic tactile array is proposed that shows a low hysteresis and good sensitivity for skin like deformations.

DOI: 10.1115/ESDA2014-20114

Using rather well known theory about capillary bridges between two electrodes we calculate the tensile force that can be applied to liquid metal contacts in the micrometer regime. Assuming circular symmetry, full wetting of the electrodes, and neglecting gravity, we present a brief review of the necessary theory and find numerically the forces to be in the 100μN range for liquid metals as mercury and liquid Gallium suspended between electrodes of 20μm radius.

Novel high resolution tactile robotic fingertips

In: IEEE SENSORS pg. 791-794.

  • (2014)

DOI: 10.1109/ICSENS.2014.6985118

This paper describes a novel robotic fingertip based on piezoresistive rubber that can sense pressure tactile stimuli with a high spatial resolution over curved surfaces. The working principle is based on a three-layer sandwich structure (conductive electrodes on top and bottom and piezoresistive rubber in the middle). For the conductive layers we use ring patterns of silver epoxy and flex PCB electrode arrays. The proposed sensorised fingertip has 60 sensitive regions (taxels) arranged in 5 rings and 12 columns that have a smooth pressure to resistance characteristic. Using the sensor with specialized data acquisition electronics that acquire 500 frames per second provides rich information regarding contact force, shape and angle for bio-inspired robotic fingertips. Furthermore, a model of estimating the force of contact based on values of the cells is proposed.

Static and dynamic magnetic properties of densely packed magnetic nanowire arrays

In: Physical Review B vol. 87 pg. 1744429 (19).

  • (2013)

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.87.174429

The static and dynamic magnetic properties of magnetic nanowire arrays with high packing density (>0.4) and wire diameter much greater than the exchange length have been studied by static and time-resolved magneto-optical Kerr effect measurements and micromagnetic simulations. The nanowires were formed by electrodeposition within a nanoporous template such that their symmetry axes lay normal to the plane of the substrate. A quantitative and systematic investigation has been made of the static and dynamic properties of the array, which lie between the limiting cases of a single wire and a continuous ferromagnetic thin film. In particular, the competition between anisotropies associated with the shape of the individual nanowires and that of the array as a whole has been studied. Measured and simulated hysteresis loops are largely anhysteretic with zero remanence, and the micromagnetic configuration is such that the net magnetization vanishes in directions orthogonal to the applied field. Simulations of the remanent state reveal antiferromagnetic alignment of the magnetization in adjacent nanowires and the formation of vortex flux closure structures at the ends of each nanowire. The excitation spectra obtained from experiment and micromagnetic simulations are in qualitative agreement for magnetic fields applied both parallel and perpendicular to the axes of the nanowires. For the field parallel to the nanowire axes, there is also good quantitative agreement between experiment and simulation. The resonant frequencies are initially found to decrease as the applied field is increased from remanence. This is the result of a change of mode profile within the plane of the array from nonuniform to uniform as the ground state evolves with increasing applied field. Quantitative differences between experimental and simulated spectra are observed when the field is applied perpendicular to the nanowire axes. The dependence of the magnetic excitation spectra upon the array packing density is explored, and dispersion curves for spin waves propagating within the array parallel to the nanowire axis are presented. Finally, a tunneling of end modes through the middle region of the nanowires was observed. The tunneling is more efficient for wires forming densely packed arrays, as a result of the extended penetration of the dynamic demagnetizing fields into the middle of the wires and due to the lowering of the tunneling barrier by the static demagnetizing field of the array.

Charging dynamics in electron transmission through Al2O3 capillaries

In: Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research Section B: Beam Interactions with Materials and Atoms vol. 279 pg. 190-193.

  • (2012)
We have measured the transmission of low-energy electrons through insulating Al2O3 nanocapillaries. We find that transmission at the incident energy is quickly suppressed with increasing tilt angle of the capillary axis relative to the incoming electron beam while inelastic transmission becomes more important. For small angles of incidence charging dynamics lead to a decrease of total transmission (elastic and inelastic) with time. Our results are interpreted on the basis of a microscopic model for the electron transport within the capillary including also close interactions with the capillary wall.

Circuit Modeling on Polyaniline Functionalized Nanowire-Templated Micro-Interdigital Capacitors for pH Sensing

In: IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology vol. 10 pg. 1314-1320.

  • (2011)
This study presents an improved alternative current (ac) circuit modeling of a highly sensitive capacitive pH-sensing element based on polyaniline (PANI) functionalized nanowire-templated micro-interdigited electrodes (NWs μIDEs). While electrical resonance measurements deal with a total equivalent capacity, comparative investigations show a good agreement with the fitting parameters of the corresponding model. A physical interpretation of the model is discussed to help in understanding the detection mechanism and a possible methodology to be used for further integration of the subsequent device is suggested.

Self-standing corrugated Ag and Au-Nanorods as plasmonic substrates

In: Journal of Materials Chemistry vol. 21 pg. 6269-6273.

  • (2011)
We use home-made Si-supported anodized alumina thin film templates for the electrodeposition of large area self-standing Ag- and Au-nanorod (Au-NR) arrays. The deposition conditions chosen, i.e. electrolyte composition and deposition voltage, lead to a corrugated rod morphology, particularly for Au-NRs. Instantaneous nucleation followed by diffusion-controlled growth are thought to be the dominating mechanism for the morphology observed. Diffuse reflectance spectra show specific behaviours of Ag- and Au-NRs with longitudinal and transverse plasmon resonance modes and additional modes for Ag-NRs. The activity of the NR arrays as substrates for molecular detection using Raman scattering and Rhodamine 6G (R6G) as a model dye strongly depends on noble metal. R6G concentrations down to 1 pM are detected on the corrugated arrays yielding an effective enhancement factor (EF) of approximately 2 × 1010 for Ag-NRs and 1 × 109 for Au-NRs. The latter is the highest ever obtained for Au-nanostructures. Both nanostructures provide an enhancement that is high enough to detect single molecules using Raman scattering. The results are rationalized in terms of morphology effects on electromagnetic field intensity.

On-substrate, self-standing Au-nanorods arrays showing morphology controlled properties

In: Nano Today vol. 6 pg. 12-19.

  • (2011)

DOI: 10.1016/j.nantod.2010.11.001

We use supported alumina templates and electrodeposition to fabricate self-standing Au-nanorods (Au-NR) arrays. Depending on electrolyte and deposition conditions two different NR morphologies with either corrugated or smooth topologies are fabricated. We show that the properties of the NR arrays, including amphiphilic and optical, very much depend on their morphology. Smooth NR arrays are hydrophobic while the corrugated ones are hydrophilic. Also the optical reflectance, though it shows plasmon resonances at very similar wave lengths, is much lower for the corrugated NR arrays. The activity of the NR arrays as substrates for molecular detection using Raman scattering, and Rhodamine 6G (R6G) as model dye, also strongly depends on their morphology. R6G concentrations down to 1 pM are detected on the corrugated arrays yielding an effective enhancement factor (EF) of approximately 1 × 109. In contrast an over-estimated (because of their hydrophobic character) EF of 6 × 106 is obtained for the smooth NR arrays.

Nanowires and statistics: A statistical process for reading ultradense arrays of nanostructured materials is presented (see image). The experimental realization is achieved through selective nanowire growth using porous alumina templates. The statistical patterning approach is found to provide rigorous selection rules for measuring well‐defined numbers of nanowires located into nanoporous templates, and provides a conceptual framework for the fabrication of nanowire‐based crossbar latches.

Nanochannel alignment analysis by scanning transmission ion microscopy

In: Nanotechnology vol. 21 pg. 295704(4).

DOI: 10.1088/0957-4484/21/29/295704

In this paper a study on the ion transmission ratio of a nanoporous alumina sample is presented. The sample was investigated by scanning transmission ion microscopy (STIM) with different beam sizes. The hexagonally close-packed Al2O3 nanocapillary array, realized as a suspended membrane of 15 µm thickness, had pore diameters of ~ 215 nm and spacing of ~ 450 nm. When the proton beam size was limited to a single domain, a peak transmission ratio of 19% was observed as is expected from the geometry (~19–20%). This result points out an almost perfectly parallel alignment of the capillaries within one domain. However, for larger beam scanning areas (sampling multiple domains) the transmission ratio was reduced to 5%. The STIM analysis over an area larger than the typical domain size revealed an overall capillary angular spread of ~ 2°.

High field matching effects in NbN induced by a dense ferromagnetic nanowires array grown in a nanoporous alumina template

In: Applied Physics Letters vol. 95 pg. 252503(3).

  • (2009)

DOI: 10.1063/1.3276557

Dense arrays of ordered ferromagnetic nanowires have been used to create periodic magnetic pinning centers in thin superconducting NbN films. The nanowires were electrodeposited in a highly ordered porous alumina membrane and the thin NbN film was deposited on top of the perpendicularly oriented magnetic nanowires. Matching effects have been observed up to 2.5 T (11th matching field) and are maintained at low temperature. An appreciable enhancement of the superconducting properties is observed. At low fields, a hysteretic behavior in the magnetoresistance is found, directly related to the magnetization processes of arrays of interacting single domain ferromagnetic nanowires.

Low-energy electron transmission through high aspect ratio Al2O3 nanocapillaries.

In: EPL - A Letters Journal Exploring the Frontiers of Physics vol. 86 pg. 23001(6).

DOI: 10.1209/0295-5075/86/23001

Electron transmission through insulating Al2O3 nanocapillaries of different diameters (40 and 270 nm) and 15 μm length has been investigated for low-energy electrons (2–120 eV). The total intensity of transmitted current weakly depends on the incident electron energy and tilt angle defined with respect to the capillary axis. On the other hand, the intensity of elastically transmitted electrons significantly varies with the alteration of electron energy and tilt angle. In addition, we measured an energy distribution of electrons transmitted both in the straightforward direction and at large tilt angle. The measured spectra show that inelastic processes dominate and, in particular, a large amount of low-energy electrons. These low-energy electrons can be either inelastically scattered projectiles or secondary electrons emitted within the capillaries. Furthermore, a change of the tilt angle appears to influence significantly only the intensity of the elastic transmission. The present results suggest a more complex nature of low-energy electron transport through insulating nanocapillaries than proposed for positive ions.

Fabrication of nanowires and nanostructures: combining template synthesis with patterning methods

DOI: 10.1007/s00339-009-5085-6

We report on different approaches that we have adopted and developed for the fabrication of nanowires and nanostructures. Methods based on template synthesis and on self organization seem to be the most promising for the fabrication of nanomaterials and nanostructures due to their easiness and low cost. The development of a supported nanoporous alumina template and the possibility of using this template to combine electrochemical synthesis with lithographic methods open new ways for the fabrication of complex nanostructures. The numerous advantages of the supported template and its compatibility with microelectronic processes make it an ideal candidate for further integration into large-scale fabrication of various nanowire-based devices.

A highly sensitive pH capacitive sensor has been designed by confined growth of vertically aligned nanowire arrays on interdigited microelectrodes. The active surface of the device has been functionalized with an electrochemical pH transducer (polyaniline). We easily tune the device features by combining lithographic techniques with electrochemical synthesis. The reported electrical LC resonance measurements show considerable sensitivity enhancement compared to conventional capacitive pH sensors realized with microfabricated interdigited electrodes. The sensitivity can be easily improved by changing only the thickness of the functional layer.

Carpets of vertically aligned nanowires on flexible substrates are successfully realized by a template method. Applying special pulsed anodization conditions, defect‐free nanoporous alumina structures supported on polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), a flexible silicone elastomer, are created. By using this template with nanopores ending on a conducting underlayer, a high‐density nanowire array can be simply grown by direct DC‐electrodeposition on the top of the silicone rubber.

The barrier layer of self-ordered anodized aluminium oxide, which is grown from an aluminium foil, has been revealed by a selective chemical etching of the remaining aluminium. The surface obtained in this way consists of a triangular lattice of bumps with 100nm spacing, and heights of approximately 50nm. Using this surface as a template for controlling the pinning in thin superconducting films, superconducting Nb was deposited with different thicknesses and under different deposition angles. The evaporation under a 30° angle shows an asymmetric pinning potential composed of two triangular lattices having different pinning strengths. Matching effects are observed up to 1T. Matching effects are also maintained at relatively low temperature.

Transmission of a few keV impact energy Ne6+ ions through capillaries in anodic alumina membranes has been studied with different ion counting methods using an energy dispersive electrostatic spectrometer, a multichannel plate (MCP) array and sensitive current-measurement. In the present work, we focus our attention to the measurements with the MCP array. The alumina capillaries were prepared by electro-chemical oxidation of aluminium foils. For the present experiments guiding of 3-6 keV Ne6+ ions has been studied in two samples with capillary diameter of about 140 nm and 260 nm and with capillary length of about 15 μm. At these energies, the ions have been efficiently guided by the capillaries up to few degrees tilt angle. In this work, we compare the results obtained by the energy dispersive spectrometer to those studied by the MCP array.

Dependence of the two-photon photoluminescence yield of gold nanostructures on the laser pulse duration

In: Physical Review B vol. 80 pg. 045411(5).

  • (2009)

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.80.045411

Two-photon photoluminescence (TPPL) from gold nanostructures is becoming one of the most relevant tools for plasmon-assisted biological imaging and photothermal therapy as well as for the investigation of plasmonic devices. Here we study the yield of TPPL as a function of the temporal width δ of the excitation laser pulses for a fixed average power. In the δ>1 ps regime, the TPPL yield decreases as δ is increased, while for shorter pulse widths it becomes independent of δ and, consequently, of the laser-pulse peak power. This peculiar dynamics is understood and modeled by considering that two-photon absorption in Au is a two-step process governed by the lifetime of the metastable state populated by the first photon absorption.

Functionalization of Magnetic Nanowires by Charged Biopolymers

In: Biomacromolecules vol. 9 pg. 2517-2522.

  • (2008)

DOI: 10.1021/bm8005402

We report on a facile method for the preparation of biocompatible and bioactive magnetic nanowires. The method consists of the direct deposition of polysaccharides by layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly onto a brush of metallic nanowires obtained by electrodeposition of the metal within the nanopores of an alumina template supported on a silicon wafer. Carboxymethylpullulan (CMP) and chitosan (CHI) multilayers were grown on brushes of Ni nanowires; subsequent grafting of an enzyme was performed by conjugating free amine side groups of chitosan with carboxylic groups of the enzyme. The nanowires are finally released by a gentle ultrasonic treatment. Transmission electron microscopy, electron energy-dispersive loss spectroscopy, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy indicate the formation of an homogeneous coating onto the nickel nanowires when one, two, or three CMP/CHI bilayers are deposited. This easy and efficient route to the biochemical functionalization of magnetic nanowires could find widespread use for the preparation of a broad range of nanowires with tailored surface properties.

One of the challenging aspects of science and technology on ananometer-scale is the precise three-dimensional control ofnano-objects. Scanning probe microscopy manipulation,magnetic- or electric-field alignment and lithography-basedtechniques are only a few of the techniques that have beenreported so far.[1]Nevertheless, most of these techniques arestill being developed and their integration for devicefabrication represents a real challenge for the scientificcommunity. Within this context, nanowires and nanotubesare of great interest because they lie between the macroscopicand atomic scales. The ability to fabricate and manipulate suchobjects in a reliable manner on a large scale will foster their usein electronic, photonic, and sensing applications.[2]Template-based methods have been successfully used for nanowirefabrication as they allow the realization of complex organic/inorganic nanostructures.[3]To date, nanoporous anodicalumina oxide (AAO) made by the electrochemical oxidationof aluminum has been extensively used because it provides agood platform for the development of various nanostructures.This interest originates from the fact that AAO membranes,having a high density of nanopores (up to 1012cm2), are easilyproduced over large areas with variable thicknesses.[4]More-over, a good chemical and mechanical stability combined withinteresting electrical properties make AAO membranes goodcandidates for nanowire fabrication. However, the use of suchnanostructures as passive or active components in emergingelectronic devices requires smartly engineered arrays ofnanowires with well defined position and pitch.

A versatile method to grow localized arrays of nanowires for highly sensitive capacitive devices

In: Journal of Optoelectronics and Advanced Materials vol. 10 pg. 2936-2941.

  • (2008)
We propose a new approach to increase the detection efficiency of the capacitive sensing devices, by growing vertically aligned nanowires arrays, localized and confined on small interdigited electrodes structures. The metallic tracks are made using optical lithography, and the nanowires are realized by electrochemical synthesis in nanoporous materials (i.e. supported alumina templates). By controlling the preparation conditions, both their positions and pitches can be easily tuned, as well as their geometrical design (i.e. diameters between 5 – 350 nm and lengths between 150 nm – 10 μm). Based on these considerations, a capacitive sensor structure with high active surface is sensitized with polyaniline, for pH detection. Reported data show that the sensitivity of the sensor is substantially improved by using nanowires arrays.

Stable field emission from arrays of vertically aligned free-standing metallic nanowires

In: Nanotechnology vol. 19 pg. 215601(7).

DOI: 10.1088/0957-4484/19/21/215601

We present a fully elaborated process to grow arrays of metallic nanowires with controlled geometry and density, based on electrochemical filling of nanopores in track-etched templates. Nanowire growth is performed at room temperature, atmospheric pressure and is compatible with low cost fabrication and large surfaces. This technique offers an excellent control of the orientation, shape and nanowires density. It is applied to fabricate field emission arrays with a good control of the emission site density. We have prepared Co, Ni, Cu and Rh nanowires with a height of 3 µm, a diameter of 80 nm and a density of ~107 cm−2. The electron field emission measurements and total energy distributions show that the as-grown nanowires exhibit a complex behaviour, first with emission activation under high field, followed by unstable emission. A model taking into account the effect of an oxide layer covering the nanowire surface is developed to explain this particular field emission behaviour. Finally, we present an in situ cleaning procedure by ion bombardment that collectively removes this oxide layer, leading to a stable and reproducible emission behaviour. After treatment, the emission current density is ~1 mA cm−2 for a 30 V µm−1 applied electric field.

Vortex pinning in superconductors laterally modulated by nanoscale self-assembled arrays

In: Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications vol. 468 pg. 585-588.

  • (2008)

DOI: 10.1016/j.physc.2007.11.070

Being the exponent of the so-called “bottom-up” approach, self-assembled structures are now-a-days attracting a lot of attention in the fields of science and technology. In this work, we show that nanoscale self-assembled arrays used as templates can provide periodic modulation in superconducting thin films by studying their vortex pinning properties. In this work advantage was made of the fact that self-organized assemblies of identical units such as colloidal crystals and anodic aluminum oxide provide extended periodic topographic surfaces. By directly growing Nb on top of these self-assembled arrays, the templating effect was exploited in order to achieve triangular and honeycomb arrays of pinning centers in thin superconducting films. We show experimentally that periodic matching is achieved in both systems at magnetic fields, well above those present in lithographically prepared pinning arrays (up to 1 T!). Furthermore, we demonstrate in the case of anodic aluminum oxide that the presence of porous antidots in Nb not only provides strongly increased critical currents but also conserves matching at temperatures well below the critical temperature. The studies conducted on these systems indicate that the method of template growth might be considered as a viable alternative for the incorporation of periodic pinning arrays in superconducting applications of today and the future.

Characterization of nanopores ordering in anodic alumina

In: Thin Solid Films vol. 516 pg. 3735-3740.

DOI: 10.1016/j.tsf.2007.06.076

A simple characterization method of the ordering of the nanopores is described for nanoporous anodized aluminium oxides. The method starts with image analysis on scanning electron microscopy representations for the purpose to find repetitive shapes and their centres, i.e. nanopores. Then triangles defined by coordinates of the centres are identified by Delaunay tessellation. Evaluation of the ordering degrees is then performed by a two-level analysis of the triangles. We define order parameters for triangular and hexagonal organization levels and show through typical examples that they are highly sensitive on ordering.

High field matching effects in superconducting Nb porous arrays catalyzed from anodic alumina templates

In: Physica C: Superconductivity and its Applications vol. 459 pg. 5-10.

  • (2007)

DOI: 10.1016/j.physc.2007.04.194

Vortex pinning in a superconducting Nb thin film deposited on an anodically grown alumina template is investigated. Anodic oxidation of aluminium layers permits under specific conditions the formation of highly ordered porous alumina, a membrane-like structure consisting of triangular arrays of parallel pores. Its pore diameter and interpore distance are set by careful tuning of the anodization parameters. A superconducting Nb thin film is deposited directly onto the alumina film. The porous alumina acts as a template and it allows Nb to form a periodic pinning array during its growth. Pinning force vs. field measurements derived from magnetization measurements, show matching effects in fields up to 1 T. We demonstrate that the anodic alumina template with 50 nm interpore spacing provides enhanced vortex pinning in a large field and temperature range.

Template-Grown NiFe/Cu/NiFe Nanowires for Spin Transfer Devices.

In: Nano Letters vol. 7 pg. 2563-2567.

  • (2007)

DOI: 10.1021/nl070263s

We have developed a new reliable method combining template synthesis and nanolithography-based contacting technique to elaborate current perpendicular-to-plane giant magnetoresistance spin valve nanowires, which are very promising for the exploration of electrical spin transfer phenomena. The method allows the electrical connection of one single nanowire in a large assembly of wires embedded in anodic porous alumina supported on Si substrate with diameters and periodicities to be controllable to a large extent. Both magnetic excitations and switching phenomena driven by a spin-polarized current were clearly demonstrated in our electrodeposited NiFe/Cu/ NiFe trilayer nanowires. This novel approach promises to be of strong interest for subsequent fabrication of phase-locked arrays of spin transfer nano-oscillators with increased output power for microwave applications.

Guiding of low-energy electrons by highly ordered Al2O3 nanocapillaries

In: Physical Review A vol. 75 pg. 30901(4).

  • (2007)

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevA.75.030901

We report an experimental study of guided transmission of low-energy (200–350eV) electrons through highly ordered Al2O3 nanocapillaries with large aspect ratio (140nm diameter and 15μm length). The nanochannel array was prepared using self-ordering phenomena during a two-step anodization process of a high-purity aluminum foil. The experimental results clearly show the existence of the guiding effect, as found for highly charged ions. The guiding of the electron beam was observed for tilt angles up to 12°. As seen for highly charged ions, the guiding efficiency increases with decreasing electron incident energy. The transmission efficiency appeared to be significantly lower than observed for highly charged ions and, moreover, the intensity of transmitted electrons significantly decreases with decreasing impact energy.

Spin momentum transfer effects observed in electrodeposited Co/Cu/Co nanowires

In: Virtual Journal of Nanoscale Science & Technology (NanoUnion)

  • (2007)
Spin-transfer torque effects are reported in nanowires consisting in Co/Cu/Co trilayers electrodeposited on an anodic alumina template. Using a nanolithography process based on electrically controlled nanoindentation of the alumina template, we are able to investigate the spin transport properties of single nanowires at room temperature. For small applied magnetic fields, we have measured resistance changes above a critical direct-current (dc) injected current that corresponds to the change in resistance observed in the magnetoresistance curves at low current. We conclude that magnetic reversals are driven by a spin-polarized current. The critical current densities needed for the magnetization reversals are in the 107 A/cm2 range and the dependence of the critical currents with the applied field is consistent with the spin-transfer mechanism. For large applied magnetic fields, the differential resistance exhibits some peaks that we attribute to the onset of high-frequency excitations of the free-layer magnetization. According to the high density of electrodeposited nanowires in alumina templates, our results are promising for synchronized spin-transfer oscillators.

Vortex pinning in superconducting Nb thin films deposited on nanoporous alumina templates

DOI: 10.1140/epjb/e2006-00358-7

We present a study of magnetization and transport properties of superconducting Nb thin films deposited on nanoporous aluminium oxide templates. Periodic oscillations in the critical temperature vs. field, matching effects in fields up to 700 mT and strongly enhanced critical currents were observed. These fields are considerably higher than those typical for periodic pinning arrays made by lithographic techniques, which reflects the benefits of nanostructuring superconductors by using self-organized growth. This method provides a periodic pinning potential with sub-100 nm spacing between the pinning centers, which enhances vortex pinning in broad field and temperature ranges.

A New Approach to the Spectral Analysis of Liquid Membrane Oscillators by Gabor Transformation

In: Journal of Physical Chemistry B vol. 110 pg. 289-294.

  • (2006)

DOI: 10.1021/jp0557870

Liquid membrane oscillators very frequently have an irregular oscillatory behavior. Fourier transformation cannot be used for these nonstationary oscillations to establish their power spectra. This important point seems to be overlooked in the field of chemical oscillators. A new approach is presented here based on Gábor transformation allowing one to obtain power spectra of any kind of oscillations that can be met experimentally. The proposed Gábor analysis is applied to a liquid membrane oscillator containing a cationic surfactant. It was found that the power spectra are strongly influenced by the presence of various added substances.

Photoluminescence properties of Co2+-doped ZnO nanocrystals

In: Journal of Luminescence vol. 118 pg. 245-250.

  • (2006)

DOI: 10.1016/j.jlumin.2005.08.020

We performed photoluminescence experiments on colloidal, Co2+-doped ZnO nanocrystals in order to study the electronic properties of Co2+ in a ZnO host. Room temperature measurements showed, next to the ZnO exciton and trap emission, an additional emission related to the Co2+ dopant. The spectral position and width of this emission does not depend on particle size or Co2+ concentration. At 8 K, a series of ZnO bulk phonon replicas appear on the Co2+-emission band. We conclude that Co2+ ions are strongly localized in the ZnO host, making the formation of a Co2+d-band unlikely. Magnetic measurements revealed a paramagnetic behaviour.

Guided transmission of slow Ne6+ ions through the nanochannels of highly ordered anodic alumina

In: Nanotechnology vol. 17 pg. 3915-3919.

  • (2006)

DOI: 10.1088/0957-4484/17/15/050

A highly ordered hexagonally close-packed nanochannels array was prepared using the self-ordering phenomena during a two-step anodization process of a high purity aluminium foil. The anodized aluminium oxide, with pore diameters of about 280 nm and interpore distances of about 450 nm was prepared as a suspended membrane of about 15 µm thickness on the aluminium frame to which it belongs. The Al2O3 capillaries were bombarded with 3 keV Ne6+ ions. The first results unambiguously show the existence of ion guiding observed at 5° and 7.5° tilt angles of the capillaries compared to the beam direction. To the best of our knowledge, such ion guiding effects of slow ions through hexagonally ordered nanochannels in alumina has not been reported previously.

Chemical kinetic approach to the mechanism of coupled transport of Cu(II) ions through bulk liquid membranes

In: Journal of Physical Chemistry A vol. 109 pg. 10176.

  • (2005)

DOI: 10.1021/jp055525y

Transport of copper(II) ions through bulk liquid membranes is studied in various experimental conditions. The results obtained are analyzed by using the concepts and methods of chemical kinetics. This approach allowed kinetic equations to be established which are sufficiently general to account for a large variety of transport kinetics (steady or nonsteady state, first or zeroth order, diffusion or reaction controlled, reversible or irreversible), to identify clearly the rate-determining steps, and to propose a detailed mechanism at the molecular level. The important role played by the interfaces is also demonstrated.

Nanolithography based contacting method for electrical measurements on single template synthesized nanowires

In: Nanotechnology vol. 16 pg. 2936-2940.

  • (2005)

DOI: 10.1088/0957-4484/16/12/036

A reliable method enabling electrical measurements on single nanowires prepared by electrodeposition in an alumina template is described. This technique is based on electrically controlled nanoindentation of a thin insulating resist deposited on the top face of the template filled by the nanowires. We show that this method is very flexible, allowing us to electrically address single nanowires of controlled length down to 100 nm and of desired composition. Using this approach, current densities as large as 109 A cm−2 were successfully injected through a point contact on a single magnetic multilayered nanowire. This demonstrates that the technique is very promising for the exploration of electrical spin injection in magnetic nanostructures.

Electrodeposited L10 CoxPt1-x nanowires

In: Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics vol. 38 pg. 909-914.

  • (2005)

DOI: 10.1088/0022-3727/38/6/020

Arrays of face-centred cubic (fcc) CoxPt1 − x (0.45 < x < 0.55) nanowires were electrodeposited into thin film nanoporous alumina supported on a Si substrate. The heat treatment under specific conditions was then carried out in order to transform the fcc phase into the face-centred tetragonal or L10 ordered phase. The influence of both the phase transition and the temperature on the magnetic properties of CoxPt1−x nanowires has been studied. Coercive fields higher than 1 T (10 kOe) have been obtained at room temperature with ordered nanowires, 80 nm in diameter.

Magnetic and superconducting nanowires

In: Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology vol. 5 pg. 372-389.

  • (2005)

DOI: 10.1166/jnn.2005.062

This article is focused on the use of electrodeposition and of various nanoporous templates for the fabrication of metallic nanowires made from single metals (Ni, Co, Pb, Sn), alloys (NiFe, CoFe, CoPt), and multilayers (Co/Cu, NiFe/Cu). An overview is given of our recent studies performed on both magnetic and superconducting nanowires. Using different approaches entailing measurements on both single wires and arrays, numerous interesting physical properties have been identified in relation to the nanoscopic dimensions of these materials. Finally, various novel applications of the nanowires are also discussed.

On the possibility of molecular recognition of taste substances studied by Gabor analysis of oscillations

In: Biophysical Chemistry vol. 114 pg. 85-93.

  • (2005)

DOI: 10.1016/j.bpc.2004.10.004

A liquid membrane oscillator containing nitromethane as membrane material has been investigated. The influence of substances responsible for taste belonging to four classes (sweetness, saltiness, sourness and bitterness) on oscillation patterns of liquid membrane oscillators with cationic surfactant benzyldimethyltetradecylammonium chloride (BDMTAC) was examined. A new approach based on Gábor transformation is proposed for obtaining the power spectra of the observed oscillating signals and for establishing "fingerprints" of the investigated substances. It was shown that two-dimensional form of these power spectra might be used efficiently for this purpose.

Selective formation of diamond-like carbon coating by surface catalyst patterning

In: Carbon vol. 42 pg. 1879-1882.

  • (2004)

DOI: 10.1016/j.carbon.2004.03.004

Diamond-like carbon (DLC) materials are characterized by assemblies of varying ratios of sp3/sp2-bonded carbon and a lack of long range order of crystal structure. DLC is an extremely interesting industrial prospective material combining properties such as wear-, corrosion- and chemical-resistant qualities, resistance to stiction (i.e. a combination of stickness and friction), biocompatibility [1]. While silicon has been at the basis of modern electronics and the digital revolution, recent advances in microfabrication techniques have made possible the development of microscale devices that include different types of DLC coating [2]. Consequently, the process of controllable architecture of DLC coating is thus a major aspect for micro-electro-mechanical-systems manufacturing.

Condition for the occurrence of phase slip centers in superconducting nanowires under applied current or voltage

In: Physical Review B: Condensed Matter and Materials Physics vol. 69 pg. 157001/1-157001/4.

  • (2004)

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevB.69.094512

Experimental results on the phase slip process in superconducting lead nanowires are presented under two different experimental conditions: constant applied current or constant voltage. Based on these experiments we established a simple model which gives us the condition of the appearance of phase slip centers in a quasi-one-dimensional wire. The competition between two relaxations times (relaxation time of the absolute value of the order parameter τ|ψ| and relaxation time of the phase of the order parameter in the phase slip center τφ) governs the phase slip process. Phase slips, as periodic oscillations in time of the order parameter, are only possible if the gradient of the phase grows faster than the value of the order parameter in the phase slip center, or equivalently if τφ<τ|ψ|.

DOI: 10.1088/0953-2048/16/5/302

We report on the transport properties of single superconducting lead nanowires grown by an electrodeposition technique, embedded in a nanoporous track-etched polymer membrane. The nanowires are granular, have a uniform diameter of ~40 nm and a very large aspect ratio (~500). The diameter of the nanowires is small enough to ensure a one-dimensional superconducting regime in a wide temperature range below Tc. The non-zero resistance in the superconducting state and its variation caused by fluctuations of the superconducting order parameter were measured versus temperature, magnetic field, and applied dc current (or voltage). The current-induced breakdowns in the voltage–current characteristics may be explained by the formation of phase slip centres. Moreover, dc voltage driven measurements reveal the existence of a new S-shape behaviour near the formation of these phase slip centres.

Arrays of granular superconducting Pb and Sn nanowires (40–55 nm in diameter and 22 or 50 μm long) have been prepared by electrodeposition in nanoporous membranes. A simple technique has been developed to perform electrical transport measurement on a single nanowire. By sweeping the dc current inside the nanowire, we observed the formation of phase-slip-centers far below the critical temperature. In contrast, in voltage-driven experiments, an interesting S-shaped behavior has been observed in the nucleation region of these phase-slip-centers.

At room temperature, Ni–Ni constrictions show broad quantization plateaus of conductance during their dissolution into units of e2/h, as expected for ferromagnetic ballistic nanocontacts. Additionally, positive and negative magnetoresistance has been measured in Co–Ni nanocontacts.

Conductance quantization in magnetic nanowires electrodeposited in nanopores

In: Applied Physics Letters vol. 81 pg. 1681-1683.

  • (2002)

DOI: 10.1063/1.1503400

Magnetic nanocontacts have been prepared by a templating method that involves the electrodeposition of Ni within the pores of track-etched polymer membranes. The nanocontacts are made at the extremity of a single Ni nanowire either inside or outside the pores. The method is simple, flexible, and controllable as the width of the constriction can be varied reversibly by controlling the potential between the electrodeposited nanowire and a ferromagnetic electrode. At room temperature, the electrical conductance shows quantization steps in units of e2/h, as expected for ferromagnetic metals without spin degeneracy. Our fabrication method enables future investigation of ballistic spin transport phenomena in electrodeposited magnetic nanocontacts.
