  1. 1. Nanoplasmonics for solar cells

    Author : Viktoria Gusak; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; enhanced near-field; adsorption; titanium dioxide; Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance; amorphous hydrogenated Silicon; diffusion; Langmuir kinetics; Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell; plasmonic nanoparticle; mesoporous material; diffusion-front model;

    Abstract : The main source of our energy system, the fossil fuels, will eventually be depleted and also pose environmental and climate hazards. There is thus a need for alternative, renewable energy sources. Solar (photovoltaic) cells will play an important role as one of them. READ MORE

  2. 2. From single-molecule sensing to extracellular vesicles in glioma cells under stress

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Virginia Claudio; [2017]

  3. 3. Crack-junctions Bridging the gap between nano electronics and giga manufacturing

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Valentin Dubois; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nanotechnology; nanoelectronics; nanogap electrodes; molecular electronics; nanoplasmonics; crack-junctions; break junctions; nanowires; parallel fabrication; lithography; fracture; crack; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Obtaining both nanometer precision of patterning and parallel fabrication on wafer-scale is currently not possible in conventional fabrication schemes. Just as we are looking beyond semiconductor technologies for next-generation electronics and photonics, our efforts turn to new ways of producing electronic and photonic interfaces with the nanoscale.
