Towards Photocurrent Production By Gold Nanoarrays with Self-Assembled Monolayer Coatings
This thesis proposes to use optical rectennae (rectifying antennae) for generating electricity by harvesting solar energy. Rectennae have theoretical efficiency over 90%, well above that of current photovoltaic devices. ...
Solution processing of boron nitride nanotubes and Bending behavior of carbon nanotube fibers
Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) are allotropes of boron nitride (BN). Unlike carbon nanotubes (CNTs), BNNTs have a high band-gap and stronger chemical resistance making them stable to temperatures around 1000 °C. Additionally, ...
