  • Atomistic simulations of spin-dynamics 

    Stamenova, Maria (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2009)
    Current-induced spin-transfer torque effects form an exciting branch in the field of spintronics with a huge potential for applications. Magnetization dynamics phenomena like switching or GHz frequency precession in spin ...
  • Manipulating atoms using scanning probe microscopy 

    Norris, Andrew Christopher (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2009)
    Manipulating species using Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) is an important discipline in the field of bottom-up fabrication, which facilitates nano-mechanics and electron dynamics investigations. Previous low temperature ...
  • Metals, semimetals and semiconductors for spinelectronics 

    Stamenov, Plamen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2008)
    The development of the new field of spin electronics depends upon the existence of materials and structures that may be used as effective spin-polarised current injectors, transmitters, manipulators and detectors. Potential ...
  • Exfoliation and dispersion of layered materials through liquid phase processing 

    Lotya, Mustafa (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2012)
    Graphene is a nanomaterial that has been the focus of intense research efforts in recent times. Production methods that yield high quality graphene without the need for detrimental chemical processing are needed in order ...
  • Visible light scattering from micron scale silicon nitride structures 

    McCloskey, David (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2012)
    Light scattering from complex and irregular shapes is responsible for many optical effects in nature. Butterfly wings change colour when viewed from different angles, due to a complex nanoscale scattering structure. Ice ...
