Fundamental studies of the surface chemistry and photoinduced charge transfer reactivity of tethered semiconductor nanoassemblies
The focus of the research presented in this dissertation was two-fold: (1) the development of well-ordered assemblies of quantum dots (QDs) on surfaces through surfactant-mediated self-assembly; and (2) the study and ...
Magneto-optical studies of III-V and II-VI nanostructures
In this thesis we describe magneto-optical studies of three semiconductor heterostructures. In the first study we have recorded the electroluminescence (EL) from Fe spin light emitting diodes (spin-LEDs) in which the ...
Imaginary-time formulation of strongly correlated nonequilibrium
Strongly correlated nanostructures and lattices of electrons are studied when these systems reside in a steady-state nonequilibrium. Much of the work done to date has made use of the nonequilibrium real-time Keldysh Green ...
Fundamental studies of the adsorption of cadmium selenide quantum dots to surfactant-functionalized titania films
Our research group studies the adsorption of semiconductor quantum dots to self-assembled monolayers on metal oxide films and the interfacial electron transfer reactivity of these materials. This thesis will focus on ...
