  • Deformation and Yield of Polymer Thin Films in Confined Geometries 

    BRAZIL, OWEN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2019)
    Polymer thin film mechanics represents a hugely promising field of research. Due to their versatility and ease of fabrication, polymer films and coatings rank among the most ubiquitous systems in all of nanotechnology. The ...
  • Theoretical and experimental study on electron transport in oxygen-plasma-treated monolayer MoS2 

    LI, GEN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2019)
    In recent years, two dimensional (2D) molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) has attracted a wide range of interest due to its interesting physics properties, such as valley electronics and quantum spin Hall effect, and its potential ...
  • Models of wet two dimensional foams 

    DUNNE, FRIEDRICH FIONN (Trinity College Dublin. School of Physics. Discipline of Physics, 2019)
    In this thesis I used models and computer simulations to investigate the properties of two dimensional polydisperse foams from the dry limit of zero liquid fraction to the wet limit of 0.16 liquid fraction. Initially I ...
  • The Effect of Network Formation on the Mechanical Properties of 1D:2D Nano:Nano Composites 

    Coleman, Jonathan (2018)
    Mixtures of 1D carbon nanotubes and 2D nanosheets are important in electrochemical applications where the nanosheets are the active material, while the nanotubes provide electrical conductivity and mechanical reinforcement. ...
  • Exfoliation of 2D materials by high shear mixing 

    Coleman, Jonathan (2019)
    While it has been demonstrated that large scale liquid exfoliation of graphene is possible using high-shear exfoliation, it has not yet been shown to be applicable to a broader range of layered materials. In addition, it ...
