  1. 1. Optimization of Metamorphic Materials on GaAs Grown by MBE

    Author : Yuxin Song; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heterostructures; alloy graded buffer; GaAs; molecular beam epitaxy; metamorphic; threading dislocation; InGaAs;

    Abstract : Advanced epitaxial technologies such as molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy (MOVPE) have enabled the idea of semiconductor heterostructures, which built up the foundation of the fast developing information and communication technology nowadays. Lattice mismatch has been a problem limiting designs of semiconductor heterostructures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metamorphic zircon formation in gabbroic rocks – the tale of microtextures

    Author : Victoria Beckman; Berggrundsgeologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Zircon formation; metamorphism; prograde; gabbr; zircon; baddeleyite; zircon; baddeleyite; metamorphic; prograde; zircon textures;

    Abstract : Dating of metamorphic events is crucial for the understanding and reconstruction of large-scale geological processes such as orogenesis. Zircon is one of the most commonly used minerals for dating of igneous and metamorphic events. Zircon incorporates uranium and excludes lead during crystallization, and with time the uranium decays to lead. READ MORE

  3. 3. Metamorphic Heterostructures and Lasers on GaAs

    Author : Ivar Tångring; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; metamorphic heterostructures; InGaAs quantum well; graded buffer layer; Semiconductor laser; GaAs; molecular beam epitaxy; telecom laser;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to demonstrate the metamorphic growth of heterostructure lasers on GaAs substrates. Many heterostructure devices have their performance limited by the need to grow on lattice-matched substrates. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fluid-induced alteration of metasedimentary rocks in the Scottish Highlands

    Author : Alexander Lewerentz; Alasdair Skelton; Patrick Crill; Charlotte Möller; Jay Ague; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; metamorphic fluids; metamorphic fluid flow; fluid-rock interaction; metamorphic fluid fluxes; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : Fluids, mainly H2O and CO2, are released from H- and C-bearing phases during prograde metamorphism. Because of the buoyancy of these fluids, they rise within the crust towards the surface of the Earth. Metamorphic fluids take advantage of permeable horizons, shear zones, fold hinges, fractures, and are channelled into high-flux zones. READ MORE

  5. 5. How do metamorphic fluids move through rocks? : An investigation of timescales, infiltration mechanisms and mineralogical controls

    Author : Barbara I. Kleine; Alasdair D. L. Skelton; John C. Schumacher; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Metamorphic fluid flow; fluid-rock interaction; fluid infiltration mechanisms; fluid flux rates; thermodynamic modeling; reaction front propagation; fluid flux calculation; Geology; geologi;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to provide a better understanding of the role of mountain building in the carbon cycle. The amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere due to metamorphic processes is largely unknown. READ MORE
