    Abstract : This thesis addresses solitary waves and their significance for auroral particle acceleration, coronal heating and incoherent scatter radar spectra. Solitary waves are formed due to a balance of nonlinear and dispersive effects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electronic Structure Calculations of Point Defects in Semiconductors

    Author : Andreas Höglund; Susanne Mirbt; Alison Mainwood; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physics; electronic structure calculations; point defects; semiconductor; formation energy; equilibrium solubility limit; thermodynamic equilibrium concentration; transfer levels; negative-U; 110 surface; diffusion; activation energy; solar cells; Fysik;

    Abstract : In this thesis point defects in semiconductors are studied by electronic structure calculations. Results are presented for the stability and equilibrium concentrations of native defects in GaP, InP, InAs, and InSb, for the entire range of doping conditions and stoichiometry. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plasma Interactions with Icy Bodies in the Solar System

    Author : Jesper Lindkvist; Mats Holmström; Martin Wieser; Elias Roussos; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; plasma interactions; icy bodies; solar system; space physics; plasma physics; hybrid model; numerical model; solar wind; magnetosphere; sub-Alfvénic; subsonic; non-collisional; atmosphereless; exosphere; coma; subsurface ocean; induction; magnetic dipole; pick-up ion; mass-loading; moon; natural satellite; dwarf planet; comet; Jupiter; Jovian; Callisto; Ceres; 67P; Churyumov-Gerasimenko; rymd- och plasmafysik; Space and Plasma Physics;

    Abstract : Here I study the “plasma interactions with icy bodies in the solar system”, that is, my quest to understand the fundamental processes that govern such interactions. By using numerical modelling combined with in situ observations, one can infer the internal structure of icy bodies and their plasma environments. READ MORE

  4. 4. A search for solar dark matter with the IceCube neutrino telescope

    Author : Gustav Wikström; Klas Hultqvist; John Carr; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dark matter; neutrinos; neutrino telescopes; IceCube; Astroparticle physics; Astropartikelfysik; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Dark matter particles in the form of supersymmetric Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) could accumulate in the centre of the Sun because of gravitational trapping. Pair-wise annihilations of WIMPs could create standard model particles out of which neutrinos could reach the Earth. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Search for Solar Neutralino Dark Matter with the AMANDA-II Neutrino Telescope

    Author : Thomas Burgess; Christian Walck; Alessandro de Angelis; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dark matter; AMANDA; Supersymmetry; WIMP; Neutralino; Neutrino; IceCube; Astroparticle physics; Astroparticle physics; Astropartikelfysik; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : A relic density of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) remaining from the Big Bang constitutes a promising solution to the Dark Matter problem. It is possible for such WIMPs to be trapped by and accumulate in gravitational potentials of massive dense objects such as the Sun. READ MORE
