Energy states of a hydrogen atom placed between two metal slabs
In this thesis, we utilize the hydrodynamical model to evaluate the potential energy and self-energy for an electron and a hydrogen atom placed between two semi-infinite metal slabs. The potentials and self-energies are ...
Photon number density operator
A new operator is introduced to represent the density of photons in configuration space. It has some features in common with operators previously introduced by Mandel and Cook but has better transformation properties. The ...
Impurity band conduction in reduced samples of bismuth iron molybdate
An experimental investigation of the electrical resistance of n-type bismuth iron molybdate (Bi3FeMo2012) pellets at temperatures from 90 to 620 K has been made in an attempt to detect impurity band conduction near room ...
Electron-photon interactions in quantum dots : coupled oscillators
A coupled oscillator model is developed for the far infra-red response of a quantum dot, and this model is used to predict the vacuum-held Rabi splittings of a dot-cavity system.
The effects of propagational factors on quantum wires in close parallel proximity
Recent advances in semiconductor technology have made it possible to produce devices of such small size that electronic conduction through these devices is dominated by the quantum properties of the electron. The fact ...
Photoluminescence and raman characterization of PLEE and MBE grown semiconductor epilayers
Photoluminescence and Raman investigations of selected alloy semiconductor epilayers are reported. Correlations relating optical spectra and a number of intrinsic and extrinsic properties of the materials studied are ...
Observation of bilayer growth in the initial epitaxy of pseudomorphic Mg on Mo(001)
Epitaxial growth of thin films on solid substrates is of great interest because it allows for the creation of materials with morphologies and chemical compositions which are not found in nature. The size o f electronic ...
Exciton operators : commutation relations and dynamics
The electron-hole pair operator commutation relations for a semiconductor are explicitly derived showing that the pairs are quasi-bosons with statistics intermediate between bosons and fermions. These pair operators are ...
Effects of selected mountain bike front suspension forks on handlebar vibration and ground reaction forces
The purpose of this investigation was to compare the effectiveness of two types of mountain bike front fork suspension systems for controlling ground reaction vibration at the handlebar upon impacting a raised surface. ...
