  • 2D foams above the jamming transition: Deformation matters 

    Hutzler, Stefan; Weaire, Denis; Moebius, Matthias (2017)
    Jammed soft matter systems are often modelled as dense packings of overlapping soft spheres, thus ignoring particle deformation. For 2D (and 3D) soft disks packings, close to the critical packing fraction ϕc, this results ...
  • Spin-dependent transport in multifunctional tunnel junctions 

    Caffrey, Nuala Mai (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2012)
    Spin-dependent tunnelling between ferromagnetic electrodes separated by insulating oxide barriers has long attracted scientific and commercial interest. In the last decade it became evident that the insulating layer was ...
  • Magnetic barcodes in molecular medicine 

    Byrne, Fiona N. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2010)
    The need for faster and more sensitive diagnostic systems for the early detection of many life-threatening diseases is the driving force behind the work in this thesis. A lab-on-a-chip prototype device incorporating a ...
  • An experimental investigation of tunable laser diodes based on multiple etched slots 

    Byrne, Diarmuid C. (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2010)
    Widely tunable semiconductor lasers will play a critical part in future technologies. Tunable lasers are rapidly replacing fixed wavelength lasers in dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical communications. ...
  • Electronic transport and magnetic properties of organic semiconductors 

    Burke, Franklyn George (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Physics, 2011)
    The primary aim of this research thesis is to investigate the electronic transport and magnetic properties of organic semiconducting materials. Undeniably, experimental and theoretical work is needed to conclusively study ...
