EXCIMER LASER INTERACTION WITH ZINC OXIDE
When single crystal ZnO is exposed to 193-nm laser photons in vacuum at fluences below 100 mJ/cm
Atomic Jump Frequencies in Intermetallic Compounds Studied Using Perturbed Angular Correlation of Gamma Rays
Atomic jump frequencies were determined in a variety of intermetallic compounds through analysis of nuclear relaxation of spectra measured using the nuclear hyperfine technique, perturbed angular correlation (PAC) of gamma ...
OPTOELECTRONIC PROPERTIES OF SELF-ASSEMBLED BINARY PORPHYRIN NANOSTRUCTURES
Porphyrins are structurally similar to light harvesting chromophores found in nature and to active sites in hemoglobins. As such, materials made of porphyrins are useful in a variety of applications such as photovoltaics, ...
NANOSHEETS OF MgB2 AS A NEW CLASS OF 2D SEMICONDUCTOR
The discovery of two-dimensional semiconducting materials, a decade ago, spawned an entire sub-field within solid-state physics that is focused on the development of nanoelectronics. In this project, we conduct a theoretical ...
PROTEIN-BASED NANOFABRICS FOR MULTIFUNCTIONAL AIR FILTERING
With the fast development of economics and population, air pollution is getting worse and becomes a great concern worldwide. The release of chemicals, particulates and biological materials into air can lead to various ...
NETWORK ANALYSIS ALGORITHMS AND APPLICATIONS TO UNDERSTAND AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS AND THEIR INTERFACES
Computational simulations have been widely used in a variety of disciplines including physics, chemistry, materials science and biology. Intermolecular Network Theory (INT) provides a generalized multiscale analysis framework ...
TIN NANONEEDLES FOR LI-ION BATTERIES: GROWTH MECHANISMS, THICKNESS, AND PHASE CONTROL
One-dimensional tin nanostructures (tin nanoneedles) have been shown to be an attractive alternative to traditional graphite electrodes due to low fabrication cost, a demonstrated reversible nanostructure, and a capacity ...
Compositional Dependence of Glass Corrosion due to the Crystallization of Nepheline
Vitrification of Hanford high-level nuclear waste is a complex process, which is of great significance to those residing in the state of Washington. One characteristic of the vitrified product, the chemical durability, can ...
NANOSTRUCTURED ELECTROCATALYSTS FOR OXYGEN REDUCTION AND EVOLUTION REACTIONS
Highly active, low cost and durable electrocatalysts are desired for the development and commercialization of fuel cells and metal-air batteries. The efficiency of these devices is significantly limited by the activation ...
MULTISCALE MODELING AND SIMULATION OF THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF THE DUAL PHASE STEELS: PARAMETRIC STUDY AND MICROSTRUCTURE OPTIMIZATION
The goal of this thesis is to investigate the relationship between microstructure properties and mechanical properties of dual phase (DP) steels to design advanced materials for automotive applications. In this research, ...
