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 ...
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 ...
Magneto-optical Kerr effect studies of magnetic micro-structures produced using SIMPA
Using the focused ion beam sputtering capabilities of Scanning Ion Microscope with Polarization Analysis (SIMPA), arrays of regular shaped particles with sizes in the order of 10$\mu$m are produced from a 35nm thick $\rm ...
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 ...
