  1. 1. Tunable surfaces : using polyoxoniobates and -tantalates as molecular building blocks

    Author : Mark Rambaran; C. André Ohlin; Jean-Francois Boily; Mari-Ann Einarsrud; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : This thesis describes and explains the use of aqueous polyoxometalates (POMs), as molecular building blocks in the fabrication of tunable solid-state materials, such as thin films.  Microwave irradiation in the synthesis of Nb10, Nb6 and Ta6 is a rapid and efficient alternative to conventional hydrothermal methods, while offering equal – if not greater yields – of product.

  3. 3. Free Volume Depth Profiling at Polymer Surfaces and Interfaces

    Author : John Algers; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biopolymers; Polymerteknik; Polymer technology; polymer interfaces; polymer surfaces; positron lifetime; free volume;

    Abstract : Pulsed low energy positron beams provide a unique and non-destructive tool to depth probe the free volume of polymers at surfaces and interfaces. Since the employment of low energy positron beams in polymer research is an emerging technique, some focus in this thesis has been on extracting methods and equations needed to interpret the experimental data.

  4. 4. Phthalocyanines on Surfaces : Monolayers, Films and Alkali Modified Structures

    Author : Katharina Nilson; Carla Puglia; Joachim Schiessling; Emmanuelle Göthelid; Nils Mårtensson; Guy Le Lay; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atomic and molecular physics; Phthalocyanines; Surface Science; X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy XPS ; X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy XAS ; Scanning Tunneling Microscopy STM ; Density Functional Theory DFT ; Metal-free Phthalocyanine; Iron Phthalocyanine; Zinc Phthalocyanine; Gold; Graphite; Aluminium; Indium Antimony; Molecular adsorption; Monolayer; Film; Alkali; Geometrical structure; Electronic structure; Doping; Atom- och molekylfysik; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The Phthalocyanines (Pc’s) are a group of macro-cyclic molecules, widely investigated due to the possibility to use them in a variety of applications. Electronic and geometrical structure investigations of molecular model systems of Pc’s adsorbed on surfaces are important for a deeper understanding of the functionality of different Pc-based devices.

  5. 5. Atomistic simulations of structural and dynamical properties of liquids under geometric constraints

    Author : Lorenzo Agosta; Alexander Lyubartsev; Marialore Sulpizi; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; liquid; contraint; TiO2; surfaces; bio-inorganic; molecular dynamic; ab-initio; tight-binding; DFT; metadynamic; free energy; nanoparticles; water; amino acids; adsorption; mesophases; hexatic; smectic; triply periodic network; Fddd; fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry;

    Abstract : The statistical-mechanical description of liquids represents a formidable problem in physic due to the absence of the analytical theory of the liquid state. Atomistic simulations represent a unique source of information in this respect and can be implemented in order address macroscopically measurable liquid properties, including its structure and dynamics, based on the information of the interactions between its constituent molecules.
