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. ...
Thermodynamics of Rigid Rod Polyelectrolytes with Focus on CNT-Superacid Solutions and Second Virial Theory of Finite Rods
This thesis investigates the thermodynamics of rigid rod polyelectrolytes for carbon nanotube (CNT) - superacid solutions by classical acid-base chemistry and for finite rods by second virial theory. For CNT-superacids, ...
