The experience of two world wars has led the more advanced nations to examine the growing demand on their energy resources. In the English speaking countries, with which the economy of this country is particularly involved, several studies have been published both on general and on specific aspects of the question, and the trend of much research and development work at present in progress indicates the importance that is attached to it at governmental level. The purpose of this paper is to examine some of this published material and to present in a non-technical way such data as may have a bearing on the future position of Ireland.

Quantum dot energy relaxation mediated by plasmon emission in doped covalent semiconductor heterostructures PEROVA, TANIA (American Physical Society, 2007)The interaction between interface plasmons within a doped substrate and quantum dot electrons or holes has been theoretically studied in double heterostructures based on covalent semiconductors. The interface plasmon modes, ...
Highly efficient Forster resonance energy transfer between CdTe nanocrystals and two different dye molecules DONEGAN, JOHN FRANCIS; BRADLEY, LOUISE; RAKOVICH, YURY; GOUNKO, IOURI (SPIE, 2004)We report highly efficient Forster resonance energy transfer between CdTe nanocrystals and two different dyes, Rhodamine B and Oxazine, where the nanocrystals are mixed with the dyes on top of glass substrates. A faster ...
DONEGAN, JOHN FRANCIS (American Physical Society, 1990)We have carried out luminescence-excitation measurements on a Nd3+ complex in GaP in the range 1.5?2.2 eV to determine the mechanisms by which the internal Nd3+ luminescence is generated. At low temperatures we observe ...
