Piezoelectricity and flexoelectricity are two independent but not incompatible forms of electromechanical response exhibited by nanoscale ferroelectrics. Here, we show that flexoelectricity can either enhance or suppress the piezoelectric response of the cantilever depending on the ferroelectric polarity and lead to a diode-like asymmetric (two-state) electromechanical response.

25 p, 1.1 MB Real space demonstration of induced crystalline 3D nanostructuration of organic layers / Paradinas Aranjuelo, Marcos (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona) ; Pérez Rodríguez, Ana (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona) ; Barrena Villas, Esther (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona) ; Ocal García, Carmen (Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona)
The controlled 3D nanostructuration of molecular layers of the semiconducting molecules CH (pentacene) and N,N′-dioctyl-3,4,9,10-perylene tetracarboxylic diimide (PTCDI-C8) is addressed. A tip-assisted method using atomic force microscopy (AFM) is developed for removing part of the organic material and relocating it in up to six layer thick nanostructures. [...]

8 p, 1.2 MB Characterizing nanoparticles reactivity : structure-photocatalytic activity relationship / Piella, Jordi (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia) ; Gómez Bastús, Neus (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia) ; Casals Mercadal, Eudald (Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca) ; Puntes, Víctor (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia)
Nanoparticles are reactive, and their final interactions with the surrounding media are ultimately determined by their reactivity, which in turns depends on the nanoparticles morphology, surface chemistry and environment in which they are embedded. [...]
