    Sammanfattning : Semiconductor nanowire solar cells have achieved comparable efficiency to their planar counterparts with substantial reduction of material consumption. Tandem geometry is a path towards even higher efficiency. However, extensive studies are needed to reach this goal. LÄS MER

  3. 3. UHV-CVD growth of Ge/Si nanostructures

    Författare :Vilma Zela; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Semiconductory physics; Fysik; Physics; Naturvetenskap; Si; Ge; Esaki diode; Halvledarfysik; Ge layer; Natural science; Ge Ilands; posiotioning;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on the results concerning the epitaxial growth and characterization of silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge) nanostructures. The growth technique was the Ultra High Vacuum Chemical Vapor Deposition (UHV-CVD) that works in relatively low temperatures and low growth pressures. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Spin-diode effect and thermally controlled switching in magnetic spin-valves

    Författare :Sebastian Andersson; Vladislav Korenivski; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis demonstrates two new device concepts that are based on the tunneling and giant magnetoresistance effects. The first is a semiconductor-free asymmetric magnetic double tunnel junction that is shown to work as a diode, while at the same time exhibiting a record high magnetoresistance. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Electron Tunneling and Field-Effect Devices in mm-Wave Circuits

    Författare :Mikael Egard; Fasta tillståndets fysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; negative differential conductance oscillator; resonant tunneling diode; ultra-wideband; impulse radio; Wavelet generator; MOSFET; nanowire; high frequency characterization; Fysicumarkivet A:2012:Egard;

    Sammanfattning : Short high-frequency electromagnetic pulses, also referred to as wavelets, are considered for use in various short-range impulse based ultra-wideband applications, such as communication, imaging, radar, spectroscopy, and localization. This thesis investigates field-effect and tunneling based semiconductor devices and their operation in millimeter-wave (mm-wave) impulse transceivers. LÄS MER
