Please take a look at recent publications by SiMPore and our collaborators. Check back regularly for updates - several publications are under review or in press.
Collaborators at the University of Rochester have experimentally tested theoretical models of separations performed
by ultrathin membranes. Their models indicate molecularly thin membranes are expected to enable higher resolution separations
at times before equilibrium compared to thicker membranes with the same pore diameters and porosity. Read more about their results in the
Journal of Membrane Science.
SiMPore and its collaborators at the University of Rochester have published an article demonstrating the significant permeability and high quality
separation properties of pnc-Si. Read more about their results in ACS Nano.
Researchers at the University of Rochester and SiMPore have demonstrated nanometer-resolution pore size control of pnc-Si using high temperature
carbonization. Read more about their results in a special issue of the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.
Collaborators at the University of Rochester have successfully grown graphene layers inside of our nanoporous silicon membranes.
Read more about their results in the October 2010 issue of Nanoletters.
Collaborators at the University of Pittsburgh have measured ion-selective permeability in nanoporous silicon membranes.
Read the potential applications and their results in the September 2010 issue of Analytical Chemistry .
Porous ultrathin silicon membranes were also demonstrated to have unique advantages in cell culture applications.
This work appeared in the July 2010 issue of Biomaterials.
Collaborators at the University of Pittsburgh use pnc-Si as a high permeability mimic of the nuclear
envelope and published their results in JACS.
The discovery of porous nanocrystalline silicon (pnc-Si) was profiled in a News & Views piece in Nature.
SiMPore's UltraSM® membrane with NanoBarrier™ technology was originally developed at the University of Rochester.
The discovery and application of the technology was first published in Nature.
