  1. 1. Monte Carlo Studies of Charge Transport Below the Mobility Edge

    Author : Mattias Jakobsson; Sven Stafström; Patrick Norman; Jérôme Cornil; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Monte Carlo simulation; charge transport; organic materials; conjugated polymers; DNA;

    Abstract : Charge transport below the mobility edge, where the charge carriers are hopping between localized electronic states, is the dominant charge transport mechanism in a wide range of disordered materials. This type of incoherent charge transport is fundamentally different from the coherent charge transport in ordered crystalline materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Charge Transport Simulations for Organic Electronics : A Kinetic Monte Carlo Approach

    Author : Riccardo Volpi; Mathieu Linares; Sven Stafström; Martijn Kemerink; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In this thesis we focus on the modelling and simulation of organic electronic devices, investigating their structural and electronic properties. Organic devices have attracted great interest for their innovative properties, but their functioning still represent a theoretical and technological challenge. READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulations of water clustering in vapour, hydrocarbons and polymers

    Author : Erik Johansson; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cluster; gibbs ensemble; monte carlo; water; polyethylene; external field; ions; Energi och material; Water; Monte Carlo; Gibbs Ensemble; Ion; External field; Cluster; Polyethylene;

    Abstract : It is commonly known that water plays a crucial role in many natural and industrial processes. One of these processes is the formation of water trees, and the subsequent breakdown of polyethylene used for high voltage cable insulation purposes. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Matter of Disorder : Monte Carlo Simulations of Phase Transitions in Strongly Disordered Systems

    Author : Marios Nikolaou; Mats Wallin; Asle Sudbø; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phase transitions; disorder; Monte Carlo simulations; superconductivity; Statistical physics; Statistisk fysik;

    Abstract : Phase transitions and their critical scaling properties, especially in systems with disorder, are important both for our theoretical understanding of our environment, but also for their practical use in applications and materials in our everyday life. This thesis presents results from finite size scaling analysis of critical phenomena in systems with disorder, using high-precision Monte Carlo simulations and state of the art numerical methods.

  5. 5. Development of Monte Carlo track structure simulations for protons and carbon ions in water

    Author : Thiansin Liamsuwan; Hooshang Nikjoo; Shuzo Uehara; David Liljequist; Michael Dingfelder; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Radiation track structure; Monte Carlo simulations; interaction cross sections; classical trajectory Monte Carlo CTMC method; microdosimetry; ion beams; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : The goal of radiation therapy is to eradicate tumour cells while minimising radiation dose to healthy tissues. Ions including protons and carbon ions have gained increasing interest for cancer treatment. READ MORE
