Spectroscopic and Microscopic Investigations of Phthalocyanine Aggregates on Au(111)
Self-assembled organic π systems are of interest because of their potential applications in light harvesting and electron transfer. Phthalocyanines (Pc) demonstrate desirable photonic and electronic properties, thus making ...
THE USE OF BIODEGRADABLE MULCH FOR TOMATO AND BROCCOLI PRODUCTION: CROP YIELD AND QUALITY, MULCH DETERIORATION, AND GROWERS' PERCEPTIONS
Biodegradable mulch may offer the benefits of polyethylene mulch for crop production with the added benefit of biodegradability. Four studies were carried out in Mount Vernon, WA to evaluate biodegradable mulch for tomato (
Electron and Hole Trap Distribution and Transport in Titanium Dioxide Nanotubes
Titanium dioxide functions as an electron transport medium in dye sensitized solar cells. Nanotubular anatase titanium dioxide is expected to be a better photoanode because of the direct path of the electrons from injection ...
Understanding the Effects of Dopants on Calcium Phosphate Ceramics: Bone Cell Differentiation and Bone Growth in vitro and in vivo
The objective of this research is to further develop the understanding of trace elements in bone biology and, specifically, their potential osteogenic effects in calcium phosphate bone substitute ceramics. Trace elements ...
INTRINSIC DEFECTS AND SODIUM ACCEPTORS DOPING IN ZNO
Zinc oxide (ZnO), with a direct band gap of 3.37 eV at room temperature, attracts considerable attention because of its promising applications for blue-UV light-emitting diodes, diode lasers and spintronics.A problem with ...
Compositional Dependence of Glass Corrosion due to the Crystallization of Nepheline
Vitrification of Hanford high-level nuclear waste is a complex process, which is of great significance to those residing in the state of Washington. One characteristic of the vitrified product, the chemical durability, can ...
CHARACTERIZATION OF SECONDARY PHASES IN Cd0.9Zn0.1Te DETECTOR GRADE SEMICONDUCTOR BY IR TRANSMISSION MICROSCOPE AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AMPOULE ROTATION TECHNIQUE IN MODIFIED VERTICAL BRIDGMAN GROWTH TO MINIMIZE THE SECONDARY PHASES
Presence of secondary phases (precipitates/inclusions) in cadmium zinc telluride (CZT) crystals degrades the performance of the materials as radiation detectors. The infrared (IR) transmission microscope was used to quantify ...
STUDY OF THE DYNAMICS OF THE MoO2-Mo2C SYSTEM FOR CATALYTIC PARTIAL OXIDATION REACTIONS
On a global scale, the energy demand is largely supplied by the combustion of non-renewable fossil fuels. However, their rapid depletion coupled with environmental and sustainability concerns are the main drivers to seek ...
NETWORK ANALYSIS ALGORITHMS AND APPLICATIONS TO UNDERSTAND AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS AND THEIR INTERFACES
Computational simulations have been widely used in a variety of disciplines including physics, chemistry, materials science and biology. Intermolecular Network Theory (INT) provides a generalized multiscale analysis framework ...
