The photocatalytic reduction of CO2 into light hydrocarbons using sunlight and water is a challenging reaction involving eight electron transfer steps; nevertheless, it has great potential to address the problem of rising anthropogenic carbon emissions and enable the use of fossil fuels in a...
The successful interfacing of electronics with biology is the next frontier for microelectronics and nanotechnology. Melanin, a naturally occurring conjugated polymer composed of different structural subunits, may be an ideal candidate for such interfacing. In the solid-state, the large broadband...
Nanophotonic Enhancement and Improved Electron Extraction in Perovskite Solar Cells Using Near-Horizontally Aligned TiO2 NanorodsDownload
While vertically oriented metal oxide nanowires have been intensely researched for use as electron transport layers (ETLs) in halide perovskite solar cells (HPSCs), horizontal nanowires (oriented roughly parallel to the substrate) have received much less attention despite their higher photonic...
The nanoscale confinement and coupling of electromagnetic radiation into plexcitonic modes has drawn immense interest because of the innovative possibilities for their application in light harvesting and light emitting devices (LEDs). Plexcitons arise from the coupling between two types of...
S.R. Jim Thesis Appendix B - Numerical Analysis Scripts
This archive collects programming scripts used in the analysis of data presented in the thesis: S.R. Jim, Nanoengineered Glancing Angle Deposition Thin Films for Ultrathin-Layer Chromatography, PhD Thesis, University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada) (2014). The first two unedited scripts were used...
Short Review on “A high-performance and energy-efficient exhaustive key search approach via GPU on DES-like cryptosystems”Download
Recently, graphical processing units (GPUs) have found a prominent role in general-purpose applications. Specifically, in parallel processing applications where a considerable number of tasks should be processed while meeting specific design constraints. One of the most interesting subjects in...
The overwhelming challenge of depleting fossil fuels and anthropogenic carbon emissions has driven research into alternative clean sources of energy. To achieve the goal of a carbon neutral economy, the harvesting of sunlight by using photocatalysts to split water into hydrogen and oxygen is an...
Threshold Hydrophobicity for Inhibition of Salt Scale Formation on SAM-Modified Titania Nanotube ArraysDownload
Fouling of solid surfaces is a ubiquitous problem in industrial processes. As unwanted material accumulates on components, their function is impaired and costly repairs are required. Most fouling occurs from impurities present in water that are deposited when the water contacts a solid surface....
