  1. 1. Hot-carrier extraction in nanowires

    Author : Jonatan Fast; NanoLund: Center for Nanoscience; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Nanowire; Hot carrier; photovoltaic; Thermoelectric;

    Abstract : A hot-carrier solar cell aims to generate power from energetic, photoexcited, charge carriers, so called hot carriers, in order to reach higher conversion efficiencies than current solar cell technology.Creating a hot-carrier solar cell has proven challenging for two main reasons: hot carriers lose their energy very quickly, and they need to be extracted over distances of a few hundrednanometers via energy selective filters.

  2. 2. Protein Complexity via Non-Native States: Binding, Stability, and Structural Studies of Calbindin D9k and HAMLET (Human alpha-lactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumor cells)

    Author : Jonas Fast; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biochemistry; apoptosis; oleic acid; HAMLET; kinetic trap alpha-lactalbumin; calbindin; calcium; Metabolism; Biokemi; metabolism;

    Abstract : Using optical spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and differential scanning Calorimetry (DSC), I have studied two different calcium binding proteins that can form kinetically trapped altered states. Calcium is very important in numerous biological processes such as blood coagulation, signal transduction, muscle contraction and bone formation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Elastic properties and structural stabilities of elements and compounds

    Author : Lars Fast; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : A first principles study of the elastic and structural properties of selected elements and compounds is presented. The theoretical basis for these investigations is the density functional theory, in combination with a full potential linear muffin-tin orbital method. READ MORE
