Publication on Focused Laser Spike Dewetting

Published: 01/02/2019

HMNL's Tianxing Ma, Mike Nitzsche, Arielle Gamboa, and Valeria Saro-Cortes have published a manuscript that explores focused laser spike dewetting as a technique to create densely-packed monodisperse metal nanoparticles in localized areas in ambient conditions by manipulating capillary and thermocapillary dewetting on fluid-fluid interfaces. Read about it in ACS Applied Nano Materials.

Publication in the Journal of Micro- and Nano-manufacturing

Published: 11/14/2018

Our research work on 3D compatible sacrificial nanoimprint lithography (SNIL) to functionalize thermoplastic materials has been published in the Journal of Micro- and Nano-manufacturing. This work is a collaboration among HMNL, researchers at Yale, and participants of New Jersey Governor’s School for Engineering and Technology Program. To read this paper click here.

Collaborative Metallic Laser Annealing Manuscript

Published: 2/16/2021

The lab of Jan Schroers' work in collaboration with HMNL on the laser annealing of aluminum metallic glass alloys has been published in Scientific Reports. Here we show that single spot laser annealing and dewetting of a combinatorial alloy arrays can reveal the best glass former under SEM. This massively accelerates the rate of alloy testing and will allow for rapid determination of what materials can be employed as bulk metallic glasses. You can read the article here.
