Recent Submissions

  • Halide Perovskites for Photovoltaics and Light-Emitting Diodes 

    Zhao, Baodan (2019-07-19)
    Halide perovskite solar cells, with rapid efficiency improvements from ~10% to ~23% in 6 years, have attracted significant attention due to their remarkable performance, low processing cost and their potential to become ...
  • Self-Assembly of Surface-modified Clays for Functional Biomimetic Materials 

    Xu, Peicheng (2019-01-01)
    Synthetic Laponite-clay particles with a platelet-like shape display strong gelation when dispersed in aqueous solutions because of their positively charged rims and negatively charged flat surfaces. In this thesis, my aim ...
  • Backflow and pairing wave function for quantum Monte Carlo methods 

    Lopez Rios, Pablo (2016-10-22)
    Quantum Monte Carlo (QMC) methods are a class of stochastic techniques that can be used to compute the properties of electronic systems accurately from first principles. This thesis is mainly concerned with the development ...
  • Stability of Topological States and Crystalline Solids 

    Andrews, Bartholomew (2019-07-19)
    From the alignment of magnets to the melting of ice, the transition between different phases of matter underpins our exploitation of materials. Both a quantum and a classical phase can undergo an instability into another ...
