Single-electron transistor: Effects of the environment and detecting electron motion in real time
This thesis will be divided into two parts. In the first part, theory and results of a novel system in which a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET) coupled to a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) serving as ...
Electrical transport in a single-electron transistor coupled to a tunable environment
A novel model system is developed to study the effects of the environment on transport properties of a superconducting single-electron transistor (S-SET). The impedance of a two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) 50 nm below ...
Synthesis of Carbon Nanomaterials and Their Applications in the Oilfield
This dissertation explores the potential applications of nanotechnology in the oilfield including poly(vinyl alcohol) stabilized carbon black nanoparticles for oil exploration and temperature-responsive carbon black ...
