  1. 1. ZnO Quantum Dots : Size Dependent Optical, Vibrational and Photoelectrochemical Properties

    Author : Jesper Jacobsson; Tomas Edvinsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ZnO; nanoparticels; quantum dots; Chemistry with specialization in Inorganic Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis is devoted to quantum dots of ZnO in the size regime 2.5-10 nm.The focus is directed towards their size dependent properties with specialemphasis on the optical, vibrational and photocatalytic properties. The particleswere synthesized by hydrolysis in alkaline zinc acetate solution. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the role of the electron-electron interaction in two-dimensional quantum dots and rings

    Author : Erik Waltersson; Eva Lindroth; Stephanie Reimann; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; quantum dot; quantum ring; quantum dot molecule; electronic structure; two-dimensional; many-body physics; many-body perturbation theory; coupled cluster; coupled cluster singles and doubles; quantum logical gates; quantum computing; quantum control; quantum control algorithm; Electronic structure; Elektronstruktur; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : Many-Body Perturbation Theory is put to test as a method for reliable calculations of the electron-electron interaction in two-dimensional quantum dots. We show that second order correlation gives qualitative agreement with experiments on a level which was not found within the Hartree-Fock description. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optical Studies of Single Quantum Dots

    Author : Jonas Persson; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; nano-optics; quantum optics; photoluminescence; micro-photoluminescence; single photon generation; Semiconductory physics; Halvledarfysik; low-dimensional structures; quantum dots; Stranski-Krastanow; Fysicumarkivet A:2004:Persson;

    Abstract : This thesis presents spectroscopic studies of single self-assembled InP quantum dots (QDs). The electronic properties of these QDs have been studied by photoluminescence (PL) and scanning tunnelling luminescence (STL). The QDs were grown in the Stranski-Krastanow mode and were embedded in GaInP. READ MORE

    Author : Ivan Shorubalko; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; III-V semiconductors; low-dimensional structures; nanostructures; ballistic rectifiers; three-terminal ballistic junctions; quantum wires; planar quantum dots; logic gates; harmonic generation; InP; GaInAs; nanoelectronics; Fysik; Physics; nonlinear transport; electron transport; quantum nanodevices; ballistic nanodevices; Fysicumarkivet A:2003:Shorubalko;

    Abstract : In this thesis, electron transport in quantum and ballistic devices was studied. The devices studied here were quantum wires, planar quantum dots, ballistic rectifiers, artificial functional materials, and three-terminal ballistic junctions. The possible application of such devices in the future nanoelectronics was also investigated. READ MORE
