All-Carbon Molecular Electronics: From Flexible Fabrication to Multi-Step Transport and Molecular OptoelectronicsDownload
The central idea of molecular electronics is to incorporate individual or ensemble molecules into the electronic circuit units in the hope of creating miniaturized functional devices with unique properties. This dissertation aims to present my efforts to pursue this ultimate goal, covering the...
An Investigation into Neural Tissue-Electrode Contact as a Performance Impairing Factor in Flexible, Micro-Electrocorticographic Probes Meant for Brain-Computer InterfacingDownload
The on-going development of micro- and nano-fabrication methods is facilitating interest and investigation into neural probes and implants for use as neurosurgical diagnostic tools and brain-computer interfaces (BCI). Key to the development of all neural probes, from invasive to non-invasive, is...
New methods to fabricate nanometer sized structures will be a major driving force in transforming nanoscience to nanotechnology. There are numerous examples of the incorporation of nanoscale structures or materials enhancing the functionality of a device. Graphitic carbon is a widely used...
Pyranopterin Coordination Controls Molybdenum Electrochemistry in Escherichia coli Nitrate ReductaseDownload
Molybdenum is an essential trace element for most species on the earth. Molybdoenzymes (enzymes containing Molybdenum) play diverse roles in human health, global geochemical cycles, and bacterial metabolism. Interestingly, nitrate reductase (NarGHI) isolated from the common gut bacterium...
Synthesis and Properties of Graphyne Model Compounds and an Electrochemical Study of Substituted PentacenesDownload
The work described in this thesis focuses on two central topics: (1) the synthesis of carbon-rich macrocycles as model compounds of the carbon allotrope graphyne and the study of their electronic properties, and (2) the electrochemical investigation of the properties of substituted pentacene...
The electrochemical reduction of para-substituted aryldiazonium cations is a convenient method of introducing chemical functional groups to a surface. The number of conductive surfaces that have been used for this purpose is rapidly expanding. The body of work presented in this thesis will serve...
