(2020-05-16)This thesis focuses on investigating local and nonlocal transport properties in hexagonal boron nitride (hBN)/graphene superlattice Hall bars and graphene Hall bars proximity coupled to the ferrimagnetic insulator yttrium ...
Enhancing the mechanical and chemical integrity of Ag/ZnO-based transparent and conductive thin film coatings: an atomistic modelling study (2020-01-30)The commercialisation of ZnO/Ag/ZnO based flexible TCEs (transparent conductive electrodes) is still hindered by the adhesion between Ag and ZnO that results in a weak Ag/ZnO interface. This weakness is further reflected ...
(2020-01-07)Nanostructured bainitic steels represent a major advance in technology, because it is now possible to produce very large quantities of three-dimensional objects containing an incredible density of interfaces. This can be ...
