The Theory and Modeling of Solar Cells Based on Semiconducting Quantum Dots
Quantum dots (QDs) are promising building block materials for many emerging energy-harvesting applications. We theoretically investigated the influences of the QD-QD (CdTe-CdSe) charge transfer rates and mechanisms on QD ...
Copper-Based Nanowires for Printable Memory and Stretchable Conductors
In the field of electronic materials, metal nanowires have been extensively studied for both their syntheses and their properties in electronic composites and devices. This dissertation addresses challenges in the field ...
The Design, Synthesis and Characterization of Lanthanide-based Nanomaterials and Their Use in 3D Biological Imaging and Radiation Dosimetry
Lanthanide-doped materials have been studied for decades for their unique photophysical properties derived from their f-block orbitals. More recently, the prominence of techniques allowing for the study and characterization ...
