Thermal properties and nanoelectromechanical system based on carbon nanotubes thesis by hsin-ying chiu in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of doctor of philosophy california institute of technology pasadena, california 2009 (defended february 17, 2009). Carbon nanotubes (cnts) possess a unique set of electrical and mechanical properties and have been used in a variety of applications in this thesis, we explore strategies to functionalize cnts as well as applications which are enabled by functionalized cnts chapter 1 gives an overview of emerging applications of. Phd thesis ryan c chadwick mcmaster university chemistry v within silicone elastomers using conjugated and di-block co-polymers lastly chapters 5 through 6 explore the initial stages of development of a “universal” polymer for the dispersion of carbon nanotubes based on highly reactive cyclooctyne monomer.
In recent years, carbon-based electronics have surfaced as potential candidates for sub- stituting silicon-based logic as scaling continues into the new decade and beyond 20nm technology node in particular, carbon nanotubes (cnts) and graphene nanoribbons have received significant attention from the academia as. This thesis contains a systematic study of the dispersion of pristine hipco single walled carbon nanotubes (swnts) in a series of organic solvents a double beamed uv-vis-nir absorption spectrometer coupled with an integrating sphere was employed to demonstrate the dispersibility of swnts in. Thesis we investigate the electrical transport of semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes and their potential applications as biological sensors electrons have been predicted, by theoretical physicists, to go through nanotubes without much resistance but this has not been properly quantified experimentally , and the.
Master thesis on light-emitting carbon nanotubes (cnts) we offer a master thesis based on the study of electrically driven light-emitting cnts in the research unit of prof ralph krupke at the institute of nanotechnology cnts exhibit a direct structure-dependent bandgap and exceptionally high thermal conductivity. The work of this phd thesis has been realised in the field of a promising and largely studied technological material: the carbon nanotubes (cnts) after a first observation they were “re- discovered” at the beginning of the 90s and immediately started to cover a fundamental role in several scientific branches, from physics to.
Abstract the main objectives of this thesis are to synthesize macroscopic well- aligned multi-walled carbon nanotube films and, based on their electrical conductivity, porosity and structural uniformity, highlight potential applications for further development in this thesis, catalytic chemical vapour deposition. Effects of spin-orbit coupling in carbon nanotubes, which was found independently by us, has a highly nontrivial correlation with the so-called chirality of the nanotube, which is a measure of the specific geometry of a given carbon nanotube 12 organization of the thesis this thesis is roughly organized as. Multi-walled carbon nanotubes (mwnts) are a relatively new allotrope of carbon that have potentially useful properties that may improve polymer composites the work of this thesis explores the interactions between mwnts and functionalized mwnts within epoxy matrix and the properties of the mwnt/epoxy composite.
