ATOMISTIC STUDIES OF DEFORMATION MECHANISMS IN NANOSCALE MULTILAYERED METALLIC COMPOSITES
The goal of this thesis is to understand the interaction between dislocations and various metallic interfaces in nanoscale metallic multilayers (NMM). At lower strain rates, this mean understanding the effect of interfaces ...
SOLVENT-LIGAND-SURFACE INTERACTIONS OF NANOPARTICLES FOR APPLIED CATALYSIS
This work presents the research performed to understand solvent-ligand-nanoparticle interactions for applied catalysis. Dispersed gold nanoparticles can demonstrate greater catalytic activity than their supported counterparts ...
Electron and Hole Trap Distribution and Transport in Titanium Dioxide Nanotubes
Titanium dioxide functions as an electron transport medium in dye sensitized solar cells. Nanotubular anatase titanium dioxide is expected to be a better photoanode because of the direct path of the electrons from injection ...
Electrical and Optoelectronic Properties of Two-Dimensional Materials
Electrical and optoelectronic properties of bulk semiconductor materials have been extensively explored in last century. However, when reduced to one-dimensional and two-dimensional, many semiconductors start to show unique ...
