Title: Retention in porous layer pillar array planar separation platforms

Abstract

Here, this work presents the retention capabilities and surface area enhancement of highly ordered, high-aspect-ratio, open-platform, two-dimensional (2D) pillar arrays when coated with a thin layer of porous silicon oxide (PSO). Photolithographically prepared pillar arrays were coated with 50–250 nm of PSO via plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition and then functionalized with either octadecyltrichlorosilane or n-butyldimethylchlorosilane. Theoretical calculations indicate that a 50 nm layer of PSO increases the surface area of a pillar nearly 120-fold. Retention capabilities were tested by observing capillary-action-driven development under various conditions, as well as by running one-dimensional separations on varying thicknesses of PSO. Increasing the thickness of PSO on an array clearly resulted in greater retention of the analyte(s) in question in both experiments. In culmination, a two-dimensional separation of fluorescently derivatized amines was performed to further demonstrate the capabilities of these fabricated platforms.

  • This article investigates the burning of metal powder in flat layers when the oxidant is supplied through the open free surface. The experiments were performed in a nitrogen atmosphere with PTS titanium powder having an effective particle size of 3x10-/sup 4/m. The combustion was observed through an illumination by means of an RFK-5 motion-picture camera fitted by means of adjusting the frame frequency from 1 to 10 frames/sec. The burning speed was determined by the slow processes of infiltration and diffusion deep within the layer. The results indicate that the burning rate is substantially higher near the open surface.

  • We report the electronic transition mechanisms for hydrothermally prepared silicon nanoporous pillar array (Si-NPA), investigated by surface photovoltage (SPV) spectroscopy and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. By comparing the SPV spectra of single crystal silicon (sc-Si) with that of Si-NPA, the silicon nano-crystallites (nc-Si)/SiO{sub x} nanostructure in the Si-NPA could produce SPV in the wavelength range of 300–580 nm. And 580 nm (∼2.14 eV) was considered as the absorption edge of the nc-Si/SiO{sub x} nanostructure. After the sample was annealed and oxidized in air at different temperatures, both the SPV in the wavelength range of 300–580 nm and the PL emission band around 690 nm from themore » nc-Si/SiO{sub x} nanostructure weakened and disappeared as the annealing temperature increased from 100 to 500 °C. But both the red-infrared PL band (>710 nm) and the violet-blue PL band were enhanced by increasing the annealing temperature. After 2 years of natural oxidation in air, the SPV features for sc-Si disappeared completely, and the SPV characteristics of the nc-Si/SiO{sub x} nanostructure could be clearly observed. After analysis, the Si–O structure related localized states at the nc-Si/SiO{sub x} interface dominated the electronic transitions during the red PL emission and the SPV for the nc-Si/SiO{sub x} nanostructure in Si-NPA, the red–infrared PL was due to the Si=O structure related electronic transitions, and the violet-blue PL emission could attribute to the oxygen-related defect related recombination of the photo induced carriers.« less
  • In this study, it was found that uniquely ordered lattice field favors transport of carriers but hinder that of phonons. The n-Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 0.5}Te{sub 2.5} pillar array film was successfully achieved by a simple ion beam assisted deposition technique. This oriented pillar array structure is clear with pillar diameter of about 30 nm, exhibiting a uniquely ordered lattice field. The properties of the ordered Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 0.5}Te{sub 2.5} pillar array were greatly enhanced in comparison with those of the ordinary film. The Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 0.5}Te{sub 2.5} pillar array with a thermoelectric dimensionless figure-of-merit ZT=1.28 was obtained at room temperature. Themore » in-plane transport mechanisms of the ordered pillar array and the ordinary structures, lattice field model, are proposed and investigated. The specially ordered lattice field is the main reason for the properties enhancement observed in the Bi{sub 2}Se{sub 0.5}Te{sub 2.5} film. Introduction of such ordered lattice field into TE films is therefore a very promising approach. - Graphical abstract: In this study, it was found that uniquely ordered lattice field favors transport of carriers but hinder that of phonons.

  • A nonlinear thermodynamic formalism has been proposed to calculate the physical properties of the epitaxial SrTiO{sub 3} films containing vertical nano-pillar array on Si-substrate. The out-of-plane stress induced by the mismatch between film and nano-pillars provides an effective way to tune the physical properties of ferroelectric SrTiO{sub 3} films. Tensile out-of-plane stress raises the phase transition temperature and increases the out-of-plane polarization, but decreases the out-of-plane dielectric constant below Curie temperature, pyroelectric coefficient, and piezoelectric coefficient. These results showed that by properly controlling the out-of-plane stress, the out-of-plane stress induced paraelectric-ferroelectric phase transformation will appear near room temperature. Excellent dielectric,more » pyroelectric, piezoelectric properties of these SrTiO{sub 3} films similar to PZT and other lead-based ferroelectrics can be expected.« less
