A Numerical Resistor Network Model for the Determination of Electrical Properties of Nanocomposites
This thesis introduces a comprehensive numerical model for the determination of the electrical properties of carbon nanotube reinforced polymer composites. Procedures of this model are based on a new spanning network ...
Numerical Modeling, Determination, and Characterization of Electrical Properties of Nanocomposites
A numerical model is presented for the determination of the electrical properties of carbon nanotube-based composites. The model incorporates several experimentally-based statistical distributions to account for the ...
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. ...
