  1. 1. Structure and chemical ordering in metallic nanoparticles from atomic scale modeling

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Magnus Rahm; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nanoparticles; regular truncated octahedron; chemical ordering; nanoparticle shapes; molecular dynamics; icosahedron; Monte Carlo; modeling; Marks decahedron; nanoparticle structures;

    Abstract : In the last decades, a wide range of attractive properties have put metallic nanoparticles in the spotlight. These properties, often related to optical response and catalytic performance, are to a large extent dependent on structure and chemical ordering, that is, the distribution of elements in the nanoparticle.

  2. 2. A structural study into the boundary surface and associated curvature of three-dimensional mesoporous silica crystals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Institutionen för fysikalisk kemi, oorganisk kemi och strukturkemi

    Author : Keiichi Miyasaka; Stockholms universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mesoporous crystal; electron crystallography; electrostatic potential map; equi-potential surface; curvature; multiplly-twinned particle; MEDICINE Chemistry; MEDICIN Kemi; Structural Chemistry; strukturkemi;

    Abstract : Since their first discovery in the early 1990s, mesoporous crystals (MCs) have fascinated researchers in various fields because of their interesting structures and their potential uses. Electron crystallography (EC) gives the direct three-dimensional (3D) realization of a crystal as a reconstructed electrostatic potential map (EPM). READ MORE

  3. 3. Nanostructured carbon materials under extreme conditions

    University dissertation from Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Mattias Mases; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Experimental physics; Experimentell fysik;

    Abstract : The discovery of the Buckminsterfullerene in 1985 by Richard Smalley, Robert Curl and Harold Kroto opened an era of great interest to the exploration of nanostructured carbon materials. These materials come in many forms and are often categorized by their dimensionality. Graphene is an ideal 2-dimensional (2D) sheet of sp2-bonded carbon atoms. READ MORE
