This community contains research theses submitted by graduates of Trinity College Dublin.

In 2016 the Library embarked on a large digitisation project of PhD theses (selected from date range 2000-2015) and will be uploading more than 2,000 as open access e-theses later in 2016.

Graduates if you wish for your thesis to be included in TARA, First check if your thesis has been selected for scanning in 2016. If you are not on the 2016 scan list but would like to contribute a pdf copy of your thesis, we would love to hear from you!

Please email us at

From September 2016 onwards an eTheses submission system will be implemented College-wide for all Schools and all research theses.

TARA (Trinity's Access to Research Archive) has a robust takedown policy. If you have concerns about having your thesis available on the Internet

  • Development of localised process parameter control for repeatability in metal additive manufacturing 

    Dowling, Luke Patrick (Trinity College Dublin. School of Engineering. Discipline of Mechanical & Manuf. Eng, 2021)
    Due to the many advantages associated with metal additive manufacturing (AM) processes, research into these technologies has grown significantly over recent years. However, repeatability and reproducibility are critical ...
  • Vocal Artefacts: A Sonic Imagination of the Human Microphone 

    Phelan, Sharon (Trinity College Dublin. School of Creative Arts. Discipline of Drama, 2021)
    This thesis (Vocal Artefacts) presents a body of artistic research and practice inspired by the event of the human microphone at Occupy Wall Street, Zuccotti Park, in the autumn of 2011. Vocal Artefacts conceives of the ...
  • Resource Management for Data Analytics in Edge Computing Networks 

    Galanopoulos, Apostolos (Trinity College Dublin. School of Computer Science & Statistics. Discipline of Computer Science, 2021)
    The emergence of Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) aspires to divert the aggregation of data and their computation away from the cloud, and closer to the end users. At the same time IoT and mobile devices create a plethora ...
  • X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy of Novel Ternary Materials 

    Zhussupbekova, Ainur (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2021)
    In this thesis the best synthesis conditions and compositional dependency of optoelectronic properties for novel ternary n-type amorphous Zinc Tin oxide (a-ZTO) and p-type nanocrystalline CuxCrO2 Transparent Conducting ...
  • Strain modification of surface electronic states measured with scanning tunnelling spectroscopy 

    Vajda, Felim (Trinity College Dublin. School of Chemistry. Discipline of Chemistry, 2021)
    Scanning tunnelling microscopy is a surface science tool that allows topographic imaging of a conductive surface on an atomic scale, enabling real space visualisation of surface reconstructions. As it is based on quantum ...
