Nano-Observer AFM Microscope – CSInstruments

Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) refers to a family of techniques that can examine several mechanical, electronic, physical and chemical phenomena at the nanoscale, as well as perform local modification of materials. However, their potential for nanoelectronics research could be further extended. In this perspective article we foresee future SPM-based developments that could lead to unique nano-fabrication and nano-characterization experiments.

The design of new advanced materials and technologies is essential for the development of smart windows for the next generation of energy-efficient buildings. Here, it is demonstrated that the functionalization of glucose-derived carbon dots with 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride results in a self-standing, water-soluble, viscous, reusable nanofluid with self-improving conductivity, thermotropy around 30–40 °C, and ultraviolet blocking ability. Its synthesis is straightforward, clean, fast, and cheap…
