Characterization of defect density of varying crystal volume fraction in nano crystalline silicon
Author(s):Gomez, Stephanie; Riskey, Corey; Taylor, P. Craig
The objective of this research is to determine how the volume fraction of nano crystalline silicon affects the number of defects caused by dangling bond spins.
Understanding the local sodium environment in two allotropes of silicon using EPR analysis
Author(s):Jump, Stephanie; Shlosberg, Ariel; Krishna, Lakshmi; Taylor, P. Craig
Study of optical absorption and quality of amorphous silicon and nanocrystalline silicon thin films using photothermal deflection spectroscopy and electron spin resonance
Author(s):Salazar, Anthony; Theingi, San; Klafehn, Grant; Airuoyo, Idemudia; Rideout, Rex; Kendrick, Chito; Collins, Reuben T.; Taylor, P. Craig
Defect analysis of phosphorus doped silicon quantum dots by electron spin resonance
Author(s):Kanten, Bethany; Riskey, Kory; Wheeler, Lance; Taylor, P. Craig
Perfectly crystalline silicon with a dopant provides free carriers in solar materials. The crystalline structure of the lattice provides an ideal semiconductor. Quantum dots have a better ability to collect electrical ...
Characterization of molecular magnets using EPR
Author(s):Riskey, Kory; Miller, Joel; Simonds, Brian; Taylor, P. Craig
Molecules involving tetracyanoethylene (TCNE) and transition or rare earth compounds have been found to exhibit magnetic properties at low temperature. One compound, however, with V and TCNE has been found to have an ...
Photoluminescence quenching and hot carrier transfer in nanocrystalline silicon
Author(s):Miller, Levi; Fields, Jeremy; Collins, Reuben T.; Taylor, P. Craig
The maximum efficiency of silicon photovoltaic cell is not 31% but 74%. Collecting hot carriers before they thermalize is a means to achieve this. In this regard, amorphous semiconductors are potentially useful materials. ...
Study of silicon clathrates with sodium guest using EPR
