  • Computational studies of correlated 1D and 3D systems : a density functional theory approach 

    Akande, Akinlolu (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2011)
    This thesis describes a number of theoretical investigations into the electric and magnetic properties of one-dimensional and three-dimensional correlated systems. Our studies are based on suitable and efficient implementations ...
  • Novel transparent conducting oxides for application in solar cells 

    Arca, Elisabetta (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2012)
    In the present thesis deposition and characterization of transparent conducting oxides (TCOs) have been explored. The coexistence of transparency and conductivity in a material is often regarded as an unusual property, ...
  • An X-ray search for active cores in Local Group galaxies 

    Zang, Zhiyun (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2000)
    The nuclei of galaxies are sometimes sites of very energetic process, resulting in high levels of electromagnetic radiation being emitted. Such active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are thought to be powered by accretion of mass ...
  • Mesoscopic transport in ferromagnetic oxides 

    Versluijs, Jan Johannes (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2002)
    The study presented in this thesis is concerned with mesoscopic transport in half metallic ferromagnetic oxides. Two techniques have been developed to gain insight into the extrinsic transport properties of these oxides. ...
  • Investigations in real-time confocal microscopy 

    Taylor, Cian M. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2002)
    This thesis is a study of imaging in real-time confocal imaging systems. The particular instrument examined is the direct-view microscope (DVM), an instrument which allows real-time confocal imaging through the use of an ...
