  • Electronic properties of doped carbon-based nanostructures 

    Lawlor, James (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2016)
    Carbon-based nanostructures have been at the forefront of scientific research for the last couple of decades due to their unique properties, giving rise to many potential applications especially for electronics. Their ...
  • Interactions between quantum emitters in the presence of plasmonic nanostructures 

    Karanikolas, Vasilios D. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2016)
    In this thesis the spontaneous emission, of a single quantum emitter, and the energy transfer, between a pair of quantum emitters, rates are investigated in the presence of conducting nanostructures. The competition between ...
  • Mechanically alloyed Sm-Co hard magnetic materials 

    Gallagher, Kathleen (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2002)
    In the recent search for new high-temperature permanent magnet materials, research has concentrated on bulk Sm2Co17-type magnets. The usual approach to development of coercivity in bulk Sm-Co based materials is to prepare ...
  • The surface energetics of low dimensional nanomaterials 

    Ferguson, Auren (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2017)
    Over the past two decades, there has been great interest in the discovery and research of low dimensional nanomaterials. These materials, such as carbon nanotubes and graphene, are amongst the strongest and most conductive ...
  • The growth, formation and magnetic behaviour of noble metal capped atomic wires 

    Duignan, Martin James (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2016)
    Transition metal nanostructures have been observed to have several interesting magnetic properties. Nanowire of atomic widths on a vicinal surfaces show these interesting properties clearly, which also vary with the width ...
