1. Quantitative Electron Microscopy Studies of Metal Nanoparticle Catalysts: Nanostructure, Support Interaction and Ageing Effects
Sammanfattning : Heterogeneous catalysis plays a major role in modern society, for example in chemical production, sustainable energy production and emission control technologies. Metal nanoparticles (NPs) supported on oxide materials are frequent catalytic systems in this field. LÄS MER
2. Nanoplasmonic Spectroscopy of Single Nanoparticles Tracking Size and Shape Effects in Pd Hydride Formation
Sammanfattning : Localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) is a phenomenon of collective oscillation of conduction electrons in metal nanoparticles smaller than the wavelength of light that is used for its excitation. Plasmonic metal nanoparticles are able to confine light to extremely small volumes around them, i.e. below the diffraction limit. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Nanoplasmonics concerns the interactions between light and metal nanoparticles. In this thesis nanoplasmonics is used in two different ways: i) to control and enhance light absorption, and ii) for optical hydrogen sensing. LÄS MER
4. Health-related aerosol particle studies, respiratory tract deposition and indoor source identification
Sammanfattning : Aerosol particles have, since Classical Antiquity, been linked to adverse effects on human health. It is estimated that the particles in urban air pollution causes 100 000 deaths in Europe each year, whereof 5 000 in Sweden. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In recent decades, plasmonic nanoparticles have attracted considerable attention due to their ability to localize electromagnetic energy at a scale much smaller than the wavelength of optical radiation. The study of optical plasmon waveguides (OPWs) in the form of chains of nanoparticles is important for modern photonics. LÄS MER
