Nanoelectronic Devices Using Carbon Nanotubes And Graphene Electrodes: Fabrication And Electronic Transport Investigations, Narae Kang Jan 2015

Nanoelectronic Devices Using Carbon Nanotubes And Graphene Electrodes: Fabrication And Electronic Transport Investigations, Narae Kang

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Fabrication of high-performance electronic devices using the novel semiconductors is essential for developing future electronics which can be applicable in large-area, flexible and transparent displays, sensors and solar cells. One of the major bottlenecks in the fabrication of high-performance devices is a large interfacial barrier formation at metal/semiconductor interface originated from Schottky barrier and interfacial dipole barrier which causes inefficient charge injection at the interface. Therefore, having a favorable contact at electrode/semiconductor is highly desirable for high-performance devices fabrication. In this dissertation, the fabrication of nanoelectronic devices and investigation of their transport properties using carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and ...


Electronic Transport Properties Of Carbon Nanotubes: The Impact Of Atomic Charged Impurities, Ryuichi Tsuchikawa Jan 2015

Electronic Transport Properties Of Carbon Nanotubes: The Impact Of Atomic Charged Impurities, Ryuichi Tsuchikawa

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Even changing one atom in nanoscale materials is expected to alter their properties due to their small physical sizes. Such sensitivity can be utilized to modify materials' properties from bottom up and is essential for the utility of nanoscale materials. As such, the impact of extrinsic atomic adsorbates was measured on pristine graphene and a network of carbon nanotubes using atomic hydrogen, cesium atoms, and dye molecules. In order to further quantify such an atomic influence, the resistance induced by a single potassium atom on metallic and semiconducting carbon nanotubes was measured for the first time. Carbon nanotubes are sensitive ...


Dynamical Spin Injection In Graphene, Simranjeet Singh Jan 2014

Dynamical Spin Injection In Graphene, Simranjeet Singh

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Within the exciting current trend to explore novel low-dimensional systems, the possibility to inject pure spin currents in graphene and other two-dimensional crystals has attracted considerable attention in the past few years. The theoretical prediction of large spin relaxation times and experimentally observed mesoscopic-scale spin diffusion lengths places graphene as a promising base system for future spintronics devices. This is due to the unique characteristics intrinsic to the two-dimensional lattice of carbon atoms forming graphene, such as the lack of nuclear spins and weak spin-orbit coupling of the charge carriers. Interestingly for some spintronic applications, the latter can be chemically ...


Electronic Properties And Atomic Scale Microscopy Of Two Dimensional Materials: Graphene And Molybdenum Disulfide, Jyoti Katoch Jan 2014

Electronic Properties And Atomic Scale Microscopy Of Two Dimensional Materials: Graphene And Molybdenum Disulfide, Jyoti Katoch

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Novel two dimensional nanoscale materials like graphene and metal dichalcogenides (MX2) have attracted the attention of the scientific community, due to their rich physics and wide range of potential applications. It has been shown that novel graphene based transparent conductors and radiofrequency transistors are competitive with the existing technologies. Graphene’s properties are influenced sensitively by adsorbates and substrates. As such not surprisingly, physical properties of graphene are found to have a large variability, which cannot be controlled at the synthesis level, reducing the utility of graphene. As a part of my doctorate dissertation, I have developed atomic hydrogen as ...


Electronic Transport Investigation Of Chemically Derived Reduced Graphene Oxide Sheets, Daeha Joung Jan 2012

Electronic Transport Investigation Of Chemically Derived Reduced Graphene Oxide Sheets, Daeha Joung

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheet, a chemically functionalized atomically thin carbon sheet, provides a convenient pathway for producing large quantities of graphene via solution processing. The easy processibility of RGO sheet and its composites offer interesting electronic, chemical and mechanical properties that are currently being explored for advanced electronics and energy based materials. However, a clear understanding of electron transport properties of RGO sheet is lacking which is of great significance for determining its potential application. In this dissertation, I demonstrate fabrication of high-yield solution based graphene field effects transistor (FET) using AC dielectrophoresis (DEP) and investigate the detailed electronic ...
