Plasmonic properties of metallic nanostructures
Based on the plasmon hybridization theory, this thesis provides physical understanding of the plasmonic nature of metallic nanostructures. Metallic films and nanoshell particles exhibit bonding and antibonding plasmon ...
Doping induced quantum phase transition in the itinerant ferromagnet scandium indium
Examination of quantum critical points of itinerant electron systems will aid with understanding of d-electron magnetism that exhibits both local and itinerant characteristics in different families of compounds. Doping-induced ...
Plasmonic properties of metallic nanostructures with reduced symmetry
In this thesis, we theoretically study the plasmonic properties of metallic nanostructures with reduced symmetry using the Plasmon Hybridization (PH) and the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) methods. Both methods provide ...
Investigation of electrically driven transition in magnetite nanostructures
Magnetite, Fe3O4, is a strongly electronically correlated system and thus exhibits remarkable electrical and magnetic properties, including the Verwey transition at TV 122 K, which has attracted much attention since its ...
Electron dynamics in single-walled carbon nanotubes
This thesis looks at three aspects of electron dynamics in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs): electron spin resonance (ESR), conductivity, and the dynamic Franz-Keldysh effect (DFKE). The temperature dependence of ESR ...
