(2011-01-31)The IV-VI semiconductors, and specifically the lead-salts (PbS, PbSe, and PbTe), are a natural choice for nanocrystal science. In nanocrystals, because of their narrow band gap, small effective masses, and large dielectric ...
(2004-08-30)This thesis considers dynamic phenomena in transport through electronic devices on sub-micron scale. It consists of two closely related parts, the first considering DC current through a quantum dot as a response to a ...
(2004-07-26)In this thesis I will describe the conductance properties of certain organic molecules. I will first show that two metal electrodes can be fabricated with a nm-scale gap between them by causing electomigration-induced failure ...
