100-Fold Improvement in Carrier Drift Mobilities in Alkanephosphonate-Passivated Monocrystalline TiO2 Nanowire ArraysDownload
Single crystal rutile titania nanowires grown by solvothermal synthesis are actively being researched for use as electron transporting scaffolds in perovskite solar cells, in low detection limit ultraviolet photodetectors, in photoelectrochemical water-splitting, and in chemiresistive and...
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...
Magnetic Field-Assisted Electroless Anodization: TiO2 Nanotube Growth on Discontinuous, Patterned Ti FilmsDownload
We present a magnetic field-assisted oxidation and etching process that transforms Ti thin films on arbitrary substrates into self-organized TiO2 nanotube arrays without the direct application of an anodization voltage between the cathode and the Ti film/substrate. In effect, the Ti...
Monocrystalline n-TiO2 nanowires of the rutile phase (Rtl-NWs) grown by a scalable hydrothermal method constitute a functional oxide nanomaterial with potential applications in photovoltaics, photocatalysts, field emitters and electro-chemical battery anodes. Carrier transport in Rtl-NWs is of...
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...
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...
