  • Cortie, Michael; Barnett, Michael; Ford, Mike (SPIE, 2007)
    Coatings that can self-modulate their optical properties as a function of an external stimulus are of significant technological interest. In this regard, the possibilities for thermo- or electrochromic materials such as ...
  • Cortie, Michael; Maaroof, Abbas; Smith, Geoff (Australian Institute of Physics, 2005)
    Very thin spongy nanoporous gold films have a unique nanostructure and hence unusual properties. Our interest in these materials is also due to their wide range of potential application (1,2). An optical study for such ...
  • Bai, H; Berkahn, Mark; Cortie, Michael (Australian Institute of Physics, 2007)
    We describe a convenient aqueous route to prepare VO2, based on the reductive precipitation of vanadium dioxide VO2 from a vanadate solution. The effect of the reaction conditions is systematically studied, and a protocol ...
  • Hoft, Rainer; Liu, Jingquan; Cortie, Michael; Ford, Mike (Spie-Int Society Optical Engineering, 2006)
    We report on first principles calculations of the tunneling current across n-alkanedithiol molecules (n = 4,6,8,10,12) sandwiched between two Au {111} electrodes. The conductance drops exponentially with increased chain ...
  • Liu, Jingquan; Cankurtaran, Burak; Cortie, Michael; Wuhrer, Ric (IEEE, 2008)
    Double-cup assemblies of nanoscale gold semi-shells have been synthesized using a combination of thermal evaporation and chemical etching. The optical extinction of these structures peaked at 740 nm, but there was also ...
  • Gentle, Angus; Zareie, Hadi; Cortie, Michael; Ford, Mike; Kirkup, Les (Spie-Int Society Optical Engineering, 2006)
    Scanning tunneling microscopy measurements of tunneling through molecules adsorbed on a surface have been simulated using a standard empirical model based upon the Wentzel-Kramer-Brillouin method applied to tunneling through ...
  • Cortie, Michael; Zareie, Hadi; Liu, Jingquan; Muller, Karl; Ford, Mike (International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), 2005)
    The possible role of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) as the dielectric component of nanoscale capacitors is considered. SAMs of two rather different molecules, a,a′-p-xylyldithiol (′ XYL′) and dodecanedithiol ...
  • Maaroof, Abbas; Gentle, Angus; Cortie, Michael; Smith, Geoff (The International Society for Optical Engineering, 2007)
    The electrical and optical properties of mesoporous gold are compared to those of thin porous gold films and a simulated thin film made by randomly distributing voids in gold, until the voids fill 76% of film volume. All ...
  • Bhatia, Vijay; Thorogood, Gj; Dowd, Annette; Cortie, Michael (Cambridge University Press, 2011)
    Vijay Bhatia, Gordon Thorogood, Annette Dowd and Michael B. Cortie (2011). Thin Films of AuCuAl Shape Memory Alloy for Use in Plasmonic Nano-actuators. MRS Proceedings, 1295 , mrsf10-1295-n01-08 doi:10.1557/opl.2011.180
  • Gentle, Angus; Maaroof, Abbas; Cortie, Michael; Smith, Geoff (Spie-Int Society Optical Engineering, 2006)
    The role of the plasma frequency omega(p) of conductors in their use for various solar energy and energy efficiency tasks, especially in transparent solar control window coatings, is analysed for a range of materials ...
