(2013-05-24)The unique electronic and physical properties of material interfaces provide a never-ending source of novel physics and potential applications. As our ability to observe and manipulate the world transitions from the macro ...
(2010-08-20)I have combined scanning tunneling microscopy with density functional calculations and Monte Carlo simulations to investigate halogen-induced modifications of Si surfaces, including etching, roughening and step transformations. ...
Investigation of quasi-one-dimensional orthorhombic tantalum trisulfide using scanning tunneling microscopy (2015-04-28)This thesis describes the study of the quasi-one-dimensional material orthorhombic tantalum trisulfide. TaS3 and other transition metal trichalcogenides have been studied extensively because of their unique electronic ...
(2012-09-18)Although glasses are commonplace materials found in every walk of life, they have managed to remain mysterious for centuries. The origins of the defining characteristic of glasses, the glass transition, remain unknown. The ...
