Metal and Semiconductor Nanoparticles in Dielectric Matrix for Advanced Photovoltaics
Teacher  Dr. Branko Pivac, Boskovic Institute, Zagreb (Croatia)
Language English
CFU  1
Hours  8
Program  There are several open roads in the search for advanced devices with new and/or better performances. One of them is to exploit the modifications introduced by quantum confinement of nanostructured materials. The engineering process that will harmonize the building blocks (nanoparticles) into functional materials, and then into devices, requires a detailed knowledge of all elements occurring in complex (composite) materials. 
  Topics. Metal and semiconductor nanoparticles in dielectrics;  structural analysis (XRD, XXR, SAXS, XRF, AFM) of nanocomposites; optical and transport analysis (FTIR, PL, TRPL, I-V, C-V, DLTS) of nanocomposites; the concept of percolation
