(2017-07-14)Transistors have been improved to achieve higher performance by substantially scaling down the physical size of the devices. Currently, high performance Silicon based transistors have been shrunk to the nanoscale. To further ...
Controlling structure and composition in double-heterojunction nanorods for high quantum yield and tunable color (2017-07-21)Limitations of colloidal semiconductor double-heterojunction nanorods reported thus far are low photoluminescence quantum yield, low color purity owing to wide size distribution, and emission over a narrow range of energies ...
(2017-06-26)This dissertation demonstrates the dry contact transfer of atomically precise graphene nanoribbons onto H:Si(100) under ultra-high vacuum, detailed electronic characterization, and electron-mediated polymerization of ...
(2017-05-19)Capacity fade of lithium-ion batteries is mainly accompanied by the degradation of solid electrolyte interphase (SEI) and the damage of electrical interfaces in electrodes. In this dissertation, two different microcapsule-based ...
(2017-05-25)The mechanical properties of any materials are highly dependent on defects and defect interactions. To improve the mechanical performance and design better materials, it is critical to understand the way defects influence ...
