  1. 1. Physics from Wholeness : Dynamical Totality as a Conceptual Foundation for Physical Theories

    Author : Barbara Piechocinska; Claes-Göran Granqvist; Erik Sjöqvist; Laszlo Kish; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; wholeness; elementary embedding; left-distributivity; braids; special braids; entropy; Temperley-Lieb algebra; von Neumann algebra; Potts model; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Motivated by reductionism's current inability to encompass the quantum theory we explore an indivisible and dynamical wholeness as an underlying foundation for physics. After reviewing the role of wholeness in the quantum theory we set a philosophical background aiming at introducing an ontology, based on a dynamical wholeness. READ MORE

  2. 2. First Principles Studies on Chemical and Electronic Structures of Adsorbates

    Author : Wenhua Zhang; Yi Luo; Gianfranco Pacchioni; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Solid state chemistry; Fasta tillståndets kemi; Computational physics; Beräkningsfysik; Surfaces and interfaces; Ytor och mellanytor;

    Abstract : In this thesis, we focus on theoretical study of adsorbates on metal and oxide surfaces that are important for surface chemistry and catalysis. Based on first principles calculations, the adsorption ofCO, NO, NO2, C4H6S2, C22H27SH and other molecules or radicals on nobel metal surfaces (gold and silver) are investigated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quantum transport and geometric integration for molecular systems

    Author : Anders Odell; Anna Delin; Anders Niklasson; Michael Springborg; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; density functional theory; ab initio; first principles; electron transport; photoswitching; molecular dynamics; geometric integration; Condensed matter physics; Kondenserade materiens fysik; Computational physics; Beräkningsfysik;

    Abstract : Molecular electronics is envisioned as a possible next step in device miniaturization. It is usually taken to mean the design and manufacturing of electronic devices and applications where organic molecules work as the fundamental functioning unit. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lithium intercalation in tin oxide films : Physics and electrochemistry

    Author : Jan Isidorsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Tin oxide films were made by reactive rf magnetron sputtering under conditions that led to both electronic and ionic conductivity. It was found that a high sputter pressure promoted porosity and a high charge capacity. READ MORE

  5. 5. On diode-pumped solid-state lasers

    Author : Jonas Hellström; Fredrik Laurell; Valdas Pasiskevicius; Klaus Petermann; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; near-infrared lasers; end-pumped lasers; Q-switching; erbium; ytterbium; GdCOB; KGW; KYW; Co:MALO; laser materials; thermal lensing; end-pumping; spectroscopy; conical refraction; volume Bragg gratings; holographic gratings; laser tuning; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : The research that is presented in this thesis can be divided into two major parts. The first part concerns longitudinally pumped, bulk Er-Yb lasers. In these lasers, the main limitation is the thermal shortcomings of the phosphate glass host material. READ MORE
