Interaction of Xenon Rydberg Atoms with Conductive Surfaces: The Effects of Stray Fields
The ionization of xenon Rydberg atoms at metallic surfaces is examined. The data show that, when the effects of stray electric "patch" fields present on the surface are taken into account, ionization is well described by ...
Resistive Switching and Memory effects in Silicon Oxide Based Nanostructures
Silicon oxide (SiO x 1 ∠ x [∠, double =]2) has long been used and considered as a passive and insulating component in the construction of electronic devices. In contrast, here the active role of SiO x in constructing a ...
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 ...
Advanced transition metal phosphide materials from single-source molecular precursors
In this thesis, the feasibility of employing organometallic single-source precursors in the preparation of advanced transition metal pnictide materials such as colloidal nanoparticles and films has been investigated. In ...
