Graphene chemistry: Synthesis and modulation
This thesis investigates the chemistry of graphene from its basic synthesis to further modulation of its structure, geometry and surface chemical functional groups. A series of wet chemistry and dry chemistry experiments ...
Regular Arrays of QDs by Solution Processing
Hydrophilic silicon and germanium quantum dots were synthesized by a "bottom-up" method utilizing micelles to control particle size. Liquid phase deposition of silica on these quantum dots was successful with and without ...
Ordering and motion of anisotropic nanomaterials
Multi-scale ordering of the components is of utmost importance for the preparation of any functional system. This is particularly interesting for the assembly of plamonic nanoparticles which show drastic differences in ...
Investigating mechanical and physical properties of nanostructures
In the first part of the dissertation, mechanical properties of bundles of carbon nanotubes are investigated. Earlier experiments showed that these tubes are tightly packed in the bundles, proving that they are strongly ...
