Measuring Charge of Individual Quantum Dots
Colloidal semiconductor nanocrystal quantum dots (QDs) have been a subject of interest for many years due to their favorable optoelectronic properties arising directly from their small size through quantum confinement ...
SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CRYSTALLINE MONODISPERSED γ-Fe2O3 NANOPARTICLES
γ-Fe2O3 maghemite nanoparticles were synthesized via the homogeneous thermal decomposition of iron pentacarbonyl. This synthesis took place in the presence of a capping molecule, octanoic acid, and a mild oxidant, ...
Pioneering the fabrication and characterization of organic solar cell devices at Mount Holyoke College
A solar cell is a device that converts light energy into electrical energy. Solar cells hold plenty of potential in becoming a more widely available source of electricity that makes economic sense. However, improvements ...
