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, ...
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. ...
