MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation presents three examples of how laser pyrolysis synthesis can be used to develop new nanomaterials for energy applications. In the first chapter, we will discuss synthesis, characterization and application of boron nanoparticles for on-demand hydrogen generation application. In the second chapter, we will discuss synthesis, characterization and application of silicon nanoparticles for lithium-ion battery applications. In the third chapter, we will discuss synthesis and characterization of boron hyper-doped silicon nanoparticles for semiconductor and plasmonic applications.
