TitleUltra-Short Pulsed Laser Engineered Metal-Glass Nanocomposites
Author(s)Stalmashonak, Andrei;Seifert, Gerhard;Abdolvand, Amin
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2013.
DescriptionXII, 70 p. 38 illus., 36 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteGlasses containing metallic nanoparticles exhibit very promising linear and nonlinear optical properties, mainly due to the surface plasmon resonances (SPRs) of the nanoparticles. The spectral position in the visible and near-infrared range and polarization dependence of the SPR are??characteristically determined by the nanoparticles??? shapes. The focus of Ultra-Short Pulsed Laser Engineered Metal-Glass Nanocomposites is the interaction of intense ultra-short laser pulses with glass containing silver nanoparticles embedded in soda-lime glass, and nanostructural modifications in metal-glass nanocomposites induced by such laser pulses. In order to provide a comprehensive physical picture of the processes leading to laser-induced persistent shape transformation of the nanoparticles, series of experimental results investigating the dependences of laser assisted shape modifications of nanoparticles with laser pulse intensity, excitation wavelength, temperature are considered. In addition, the resulting local optical dichroism allows producing very flexibly polarizing optical (sub-) microstructures with well-specified optical properties. The achieved considerable progress towards technological application of this technique, in particular also for long-term optical data storage, is also discussed

TitleDebye Screening Length : Effects of Nanostructured Materials
Author(s)Ghatak, Kamakhya Prasad;Bhattacharya, Sitangshu
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2014.
DescriptionXXXIII, 385 p. 123 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThis monograph solely investigates the Debye Screening Length (DSL) in semiconductors and their nano-structures. The materials considered are quantized structures of non-linear optical, III-V, II-VI, Ge, Te, Platinum Antimonide, stressed materials, Bismuth, GaP, Gallium Antimonide, II-V and Bismuth Telluride respectively. The DSL in opto-electronic materials and their quantum confined counterparts is studied in the presence of strong light waves and intense electric fields on the basis of newly formulated electron dispersion laws that control the studies of such quantum effect devices. The suggestions for the experimental determination of 2D and 3D DSL and the importance of measurement of band gap in optoelectronic materials under intense built-in electric field in nano devices and strong external photo excitation (for measuring photon induced physical properties) have also been discussed in this context. The influence of crossed electric and quantizing magnetic fields on the DSL and the DSL in heavily doped semiconductors and their nanostructures has been investigated. This monograph contains 150 open research problems which form the integral part of the text and are useful for both PhD students and researchers in the fields of solid-state sciences, materials science, nano-science and technology and allied fields in addition to the graduate courses in modern semiconductor nanostructures

TitleCharge Dynamics in 122 Iron-Based Superconductors
Author(s)Charnukha, Aliaksei
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2014.
DescriptionXI, 130 p. 43 illus., 24 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis thesis combines highly accurate optical spectroscopy data on the recently discovered iron-based high-temperature superconductors with an incisive theoretical analysis. Three outstanding results are reported: (1) The superconductivity-induced modification of the far-infrared conductivity of an iron arsenide with minimal chemical disorder is quantitatively described by means of a strong-coupling theory for spin fluctuation mediated Cooper pairing. The formalism developed in this thesis also describes prior spectroscopic data on more disordered compounds. (2) The same materials exhibit a sharp superconductivity-induced anomaly for photon energies around 2.5 eV, two orders of magnitude larger than the superconducting energy gap. The author provides a qualitative interpretation of this unprecedented observation, which is based on the multiband nature of the superconducting state. (3) The thesis also develops a comprehensive description of a superconducting, yet optically transparent iron chalcogenide compound. The author shows that this highly unusual behavior can be explained as a result of the nanoscopic coexistence of insulating and superconducting phases, and he uses a combination of two complementary experimental methods - scanning near-field optical microscopy and low-energy muon spin rotation - to directly image the phase coexistence and quantitatively determine the phase composition.??These data have important implications for the interpretation of data from other experimental probes

TitleInorganic Nanoarchitectures by Organic Self-Assembly
Author(s)Guldin, Stefan
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2013.
DescriptionXVII, 165 p : online resource
Abstract NoteMacromolecular self-assembly - driven by weak, non-covalent, intermolecular forces - is a common principle of structure formation in natural and synthetic organic materials. The variability in material arrangement on the nanometre length scale makes this an ideal way of matching?? the structure-function demands of photonic and optoelectronic devices. However, suitable soft matter systems typically lack the appropriate photoactivity, conductivity or chemically stability. This thesis explores the implementation of soft matter design principles for inorganic thin film nanoarchitectures. Sacrificial block copolymers and colloids are employed as structure-directing agents for the co-assembly of solution-based inorganic materials, such as TiO_2 and SiO_2.?? Novel fabrication and characterization methods allow unprecedented control of material formation on the 10 ??? 500 nm length scale, allowing the design of material architectures with interesting photonic and optoelectronic properties

TitleFerroelectric Domain Walls : Statics, Dynamics, and Functionalities Revealed by Atomic Force Microscopy
Author(s)Guyonnet, Jill
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2014.
DescriptionXV, 159 p. 96 illus., 17 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteUsing the nanometric resolution of atomic force microscopy techniques, this work explores the rich fundamental physics and novel functionalities of domain walls in ferroelectric materials, the nanoscale interfaces separating regions of differently oriented spontaneous polarization. Due to the local symmetry-breaking caused by the change in polarization, domain walls are found to possess an unexpected lateral piezoelectric response, even when this is symmetry-forbidden in the parent material. This has interesting potential applications in electromechanical devices based on ferroelectric domain patterning. Moreover, electrical conduction is shown to arise at domain walls in otherwise insulating lead zirconate titanate, the first such observation outside of multiferroic bismuth ferrite, due to the tendency of the walls to localize defects. The role of defects is then explored in the theoretical framework of disordered elastic interfaces possessing a characteristic roughness scaling and complex dynamic response. It is shown that the heterogeneous disorder landscape in ferroelectric thin films leads to a breakdown of the usual self-affine roughness, possibly related to strong pinning at individual defects. Finally, the roles of varying environmental conditions and defect densities in domain switching are explored, and shown to be adequately modelled as a competition between screening effects and pinning

TitleIn-situ Materials Characterization : Across Spatial and Temporal Scales
Author(s)Ziegler, Alexander;Graafsma, Heinz;Zhang, Xiao Feng;Frenken, Joost W.M
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014.
DescriptionXI, 256 p. 124 illus., 78 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe behavior of nanoscale materials can change rapidly with time either because the environment changes rapidly, or because the influence of the environment propagates quickly across the intrinsically small dimensions of nanoscale materials. Extremely fast time resolution studies using X-rays, electrons and neutrons are of very high interest to many researchers and is a fast-evolving and interesting field for the study of dynamic processes. Therefore, in situ structural characterization and measurements of structure-property relationships covering several decades of length and time scales (from atoms to millimeters and femtoseconds to hours) with high spatial and temporal resolutions are crucially important to understand the synthesis and behavior of multidimensional materials. The techniques described in this book will permit access to the real-time dynamics of materials, surface processes, and chemical and biological reactions at various time scales. This book provides an interdisciplinary reference for research using in situ techniques to capture the real-time structural and property responses of materials to surrounding fields using electron, optical, and x-ray microscopies (e.g., scanning, transmission, and low-energy electron microscopy, and scanning probe microscopy), or in the scattering realm with x-ray, neutron and electron diffraction

TitleVortex, Molecular Spin and Nanovorticity : An Introduction
Author(s)McCormack, Percival
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2012.
DescriptionVII, 136 p. 71 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteThe subject of this book is the physics of vortices. A detailed analysis of the dynamics of vortices will be presented. The important topics of vorticity and molecular spin will be dealt with, including the electromagnetic analogy and quantization in superfluids. The effect of molecular spin on the dynamics of molecular nano-confined fluids using the extended Navier-Stokes equations will also be covered ???especially important to the theory and applicability of nanofluidics and associated devices. The nanoscale boundary layer and nanoscale vortex core are regions of intense vorticity (molecular spin). It will be shown, based on molecular kinetic theory and thermodynamics, that the macroscopic (solid body) rotation must be accompanied by internal rotation of the molecules. Electric polarization of the internal molecular rotations about the local rotation axis ???the Barnett effect ??? occurs. In such a spin aligned system, major changes in the physical properties of the fluid result
