    We report oriented immobilization of proteins using the standard hexahistidine (His6)-Ni2+:NTA (nitrilotriacetic acid) methodology, which we systematically tuned to give control of surface coverage. Fluorescence microscopy ...
  • McSweeney, W; Lotty, O; Mogili, Naga Vishnu V.; Glynn, C; Geaney, Hugh; Tanner, David A.; Holmes, Justin D.; O'Dwyer, Colm (American Institute of Physics, 2013)
    By using Si(100) with different dopant type (n(++)-type (As) or p-type (B)), we show how metal-assisted chemically etched (MACE) nanowires (NWs) can form with rough outer surfaces around a solid NW core for p-type NWs, and ...

    The spatial resolution in far-field mid-infrared (λ>2.5 μm) microscopy and microspectroscopy remains limited with the full-width at half maximum of the point-spread function ca. λ/1.3; a value that is very poor in ...
  • Nirmalraj, Peter N.; La Rosa, Andrea; Thompson, Damien; Sousa, Marilyne; Martin, Nazario; Gotsmann, Bernd; Riel, Heike E. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
    Predicting the electronic framework of an organic molecule under practical conditions is essential if the molecules are to be wired in a realistic circuit. This demands a clear description of the molecular energy levels ...
  • Silien, Christophe; Liu, Ning; Hendaoui, Nordine; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Peremans, André (Optical Society of America, 2012)
    A framework is proposed for infrared (IR) absorption microscopy in the far-field with a spatial resolution below the diffraction limit. The sub-diffraction resolution is achieved by pumping a transient contrast in the ...
  • Pita, Isabel A.; Hendaoui, Nordine; Liu, Ning; Kumbham, Mahendar; Tofail, Syed A.M.; Peremans, André; Silien, Christophe (Optical Society of America, 2013)
    Although confocal infrared (IR) absorption micro-spectroscopy is well established for far-field chemical imaging, its scope remains restricted since diffraction limits the spatial resolution to values a little above half ...
  • Cronin, Patrick (University of Limerick, 2012)
    The incorporation of nanoparticles (NPs) into the surfaces of materials has received significant attention, especially in the area of textiles for self-cleaning. The sphericity and fast oxidation of metallic NPs when exposed ...
  • Tomov, Rumen I.; Duncan, Ryan; Krauz, Mariusz; Kumar, Vasant R; Glowacki, Bartek A. (EDP Sciences, 2016)
    Inkjet printing fabrication and modification of electrodes and electrolytes of SOFCs were studied. Electromagnetic print-heads were utilized to reproducibly dispense droplets of inks at rates of several kHz on demand. ...
  • Alvarez, Marcela Salazar; Korostynska, Olga; Mason, Alex; Al Ahamma'a, Ahmed; Cooney, Jakki C.; Magner, Edmond; Tofail, Syed A.M. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014)
    The specific binding of streptavidin to biotinylated protein A was demonstrated using a microwave detection system. In control experiments, the degree of non-specific binding was negligible. The method of detection was ...

(IEEE Computer Society, 2016)
    Impressive performance has been achieved in (RE)Ba2Cu3O7-delta (REBCO) coated conductors, but for many applications, the high cost and ac losses remain prohibitive. Inkjet printing methods combine scalability and low ...
  • Gunnoo, Melissabye; Cazade, Pierre-André; Bayer, Edward A.; Thompson, Damien (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018)
