Journal Article
Orhan, O., Haffner-Staton, E., La Rocca, A., & Fay, M. (2016). Characterisation of flame-generated soot and soot-in-oil using electron tomography volume reconstructions and comparison with traditional 2D-TEM measurements. Tribology International, 104, 272-284. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.triboint.2016.09.015

This work characterises soot nanoparticles by electron tomography using Weighted Back Projection algorithm and appraises the uncertainties in two-dimensional calculations by comparison with 3D parameters for flame-generated soot and diesel soot-in-oi...

Growth of single-layer boron nitride dome-shaped nanostructures catalysed by iron clusters (2016)
Journal Article
Torre, A. L., Åhlgren, E. H., Fay, M. W., Ben Romdhane, F., Skowron, S. T., Parmenter, C., …Banhart, F. (2016). Growth of single-layer boron nitride dome-shaped nanostructures catalysed by iron clusters. Nanoscale, 8(32), 15079-15085. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6nr03474h

© 2016 The Royal Society of Chemistry. We report on the growth and formation of single-layer boron nitride dome-shaped nanostructures mediated by small iron clusters located on flakes of hexagonal boron nitride. The nanostructures were synthesized in... Read More about Growth of single-layer boron nitride dome-shaped nanostructures catalysed by iron clusters.

Making the practically impossible "Merely difficult": cryogenic FIB lift-out for "Damage Free" soft matter imaging (2016)
Journal Article
Parmenter, C., Fay, M., Hartfield, C., & Eltaher, H. (2016). Making the practically impossible "Merely difficult": cryogenic FIB lift-out for "Damage Free" soft matter imaging. Microscopy Research and Technique, 79(4), 298 - 303. doi:10.1002/jemt.22630

The preparation of thinned lamellae from bulk samples for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis has been possible in the focussed ion beam scanning electron microscope (FIB‐SEM) for over 20 years via the in situ lift‐out method. Lift‐out of... Read More about Making the practically impossible "Merely difficult": cryogenic FIB lift-out for "Damage Free" soft matter imaging.

Enantiopure titanocene complexes: direct evidence for paraptosis in cancer cells (2016)
Journal Article
Cini, M., Williams, H. E. L., Fay, M. W., Searle, M., Woodward, S., & Bradshaw, T. D. (2016). Enantiopure titanocene complexes: direct evidence for paraptosis in cancer cells. Metallomics, doi:10.1039/C5MT00297D

Tolerated by normal tissues, anti-cancer therapies based on titanium compounds are limited by low efficacy/selectivity and lack of understanding of their mode(s) of action. In vitro antitumour activity and mode of cell death incurred by enantiopure T... Read More about Enantiopure titanocene complexes: direct evidence for paraptosis in cancer cells.
