  • An exploration of two-dimensional materials for solar energy harvesting 

    COLIBABA, STEFANA ANAIS (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2020)
    The rise in energy demand around the globe can only be met with sustainable and long-term reliance on alternative renewable energy sources. In this context, the goal of this thesis is to conceive a method through which ...
  • Graphene Based Membranes for Osmosis Applications 

    Akca, Sevilay (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2020)
    With the discovery of two-dimensional hexagonal graphene (single layer of graphite), a tremendous interest has grown due its remarkable properties. Apart from all other properties, its superior thickness (one-atom thick) ...
  • The winds of low-mass stars and solar-wind evolution 

    Ó FIONNAGÁIN, DÚALTA AODH (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2020)
    Stellar winds affect the evolution of stars (as well as impacting the planets orbiting these stars) through the removal of angular momentum and mass over time. This process changes the rotation rate of the host star, which ...
  • The solar origins and earth impacts of space weather 

    GARTON, TADHG MARK (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2020)
    Coronal Holes (CHs) are expansive, low density, open magnetic field regions which appear dark in extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) images of the solar corona. CHs are associated with the acceleration of the high speed solar wind ...
  • Atomic Diffusion and Pulsation in Post-Common-Envelope Binary Stars 

    BYRNE, CONOR MICHAEL (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2020)
    I study the evolution of peculiar low-mass, evolved stars. Two groups of interest are the core-helium-burning hot subdwarfs and the shell-hydrogen-burning low-mass pre-white dwarfs. Stars in both groups have had previous ...
