• Electron interactions in 2D materials : excitons and quantum hall effect 

      Wu, Fengcheng; 0000-0002-1185-0073 (2016-08)
      This dissertation presents studies of the electron interaction effects in two-dimensional materials. In particular, excitonic effect in transition metal dichalcogenides and quantum Hall effect in graphene have been ...
    • Exciton behaviour at organic solar cell interfaces 

      Dinica, Olivia (2015-12)
      Organic photovoltaics (OPVs) have emerged as a promising class of materials in the production of flexible and cheap solar cells. Polymer OPVs are typically composed of a blend of a semiconducting electron donating poly- mer ...
    • Novel tools for ultrafast spectroscopy 

      Jarvis, Thomas William (2011-12)
      Exciton dynamics in semiconductor nanostructures are dominated by the effects of many-body physics. The application of coherent spectroscopic tools, such as two-dimensional Fourier transform spectroscopy (2dFTS), to the ...
    • Transparent carbon electrodes for spectroelectrochemical studies 

      Walker, Erin Kate (2012-08)
      This dissertation describes the assessment and use of carbon optically transparent electrodes (C-OTEs) based on pyrolyzed photoresist films (PPFs) as a platform for spectroelectrochemical investigations. C-OTEs are examined ...
