Structural and gas sensing properties of TiO₂-based (Sn, Mg) nano-structures induced by mechanical milling and annealing
(University of the Western Cape, 2015)
Titanium oxynitride has attracted research interest for the fact that it is a bioactive non-toxic material. It is suitable for surface coating of biomaterials and in other applications such as anti-reflective coatings, ...
Spectrally selective AlXOY/Pt/AlXOY solar absorber coatings for high temprature solar-thermal applications
(University of Western Cape, 2014)
The limited supply of fossil hydrocarbon resources and the negative impact of CO2 emission on the global environment dictate the increasing usage of renewable energy sources. Concentrating solar power (CSP) systems are the ...
Optical modeling of amorphous and metal induced crystallized silicon with an effective medium approximation
(University of the Western Cape, 2009)
In this thesis we report on the metal-mediated-thermally induced changes of the structural and optical properties of hydrogenated amorphous silicon deposited by hot-wire CVD, where aluminium and nickel were used to induce ...
Structure property relationship and thermal stability of organic photovoltaic cells
(University of the Western Cape, 2010)
In this thesis, regioregularpoly( 3-hexylthiophene) (rr-P3HT) polymer was used as a light absorption and electron donating material, while the C60 fullerene and its derivative [6,6]-phenyl C61-butyric acid methyl ester ...
