  1. 1. Engineered Nanostructures and Thermoelectric Nanomaterials

    Author : Muhammet S. Toprak; KTH; []
    Keywords : Nanoengineering; Thermoelectric materials; Chemical Alloying; Skutterudite;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with novel aspects of Nanomaterials,Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. On the materials side, novelmethods were developed for the fabrication of nano-sizedbuilding blocks, such as nanoparticles, nanorods and nanowireswith defined structures and high homogeneity. Nanoparticleswere consolidated to nanostructured materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quantum Dot Solar Cells: Towards Environmentally Friendly Materials

    Author : Viktor A. Öberg; Erik Johansson; Muhammet S. Toprak; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Quantum dots; Nano-crystals; Energy conversion; Solar cells; Quantum dot solar cells; Low toxicity; Silver Sulfide; Silver Bismuth Sulfide; Lead Sulfide; Chemistry with specialization in Physical Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : To decrease the world’s energy dependence on fossil fuels, energy production and specifically electricity production needs to shift to more sustainable alternatives. One such alternative is solar cells as they directly convert energy emitted from the sun into electricity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Growth, processing and characterization of group IV materials for thermoelectric applications

    Author : Mohammad Noroozi; Muhammet .S Toprak; Henry .H Radamson; Raşit Turan; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Thermoelectric; SiGe; GeSn Si ; Chemical vapor deposition; Nanowires; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Discover of new energy sources and solutions are one of the important global issues nowadays, which has a big impact on economy as well as environment. One of the methods to help to mitigate this issue is to recover wasted heat, which is produced in large quantities by the industry, through vehicle exhausts and in many other situations where we consume energy.

  4. 4. Tungsten-Based Nanocomposites by Chemical Methods

    Author : Sverker Wahlberg; Muhammet S. Toprak; Håkan Engqvist; FNM Funktionella material KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER;

    Abstract : Tungsten based-materials find use in many different fields of engineering, particularly in applications where good temperature and/or erosion resistance is important. Nanostructuring of tungsten composites is expected to dramatically improve the materials’ properties and enhancing the performance in present applications but also enabling totally new possibilities.
