In recent years, Terahertz technology has attracted the interest of researchers for its potential applications in a variety of domains. In particular, THz sensing has found application in security screening, medical imaging, spectroscopy, and non-destructive testing. The emergence of all these applications has been driven by the availability of...

This research focuses on the investigation of the opto-electronic properties of a variety of organic and inorganic materials of interest for photovoltaics. Fundamental knowledge on the parameters that play an important role in the process of charge photogeneration is achieved by application of a number of experimental methods, the most relevant...

A high-temperature procedure to hydrogenate diamond films using molecular hydrogen at atmospheric pressure was explored. Undoped and doped chemical vapour deposited (CVD) polycrystalline diamond films were treated according to our annealing method using a H2 gas flow down to ?50 ml/min (STP) at ?850?°C. The films were extensively evaluated by...

We show experimentally that the photocurrent of thin-film hydrogenated microcrystalline silicon (?c-Si:H) solar cells can be enhanced by 4.5?mA/cm2 with a plasmonic back reflector (BR). The light trapping performance is improved using plasmonic BR with broader angular scattering and lower parasitic absorption loss through tuning the size of...

An expression is derived for the perturbative response of a lumped resonance circuit to a sudden change in the circuit parameters. This expression is shown to describe also the photo-induced conductivity of a semiconductor mounted in a single-mode microwave cavity. The power dissipated in the cavity is measured in the two dimensions...

Colloidal semiconductor nanoparticles, also called quantum dots, have unique opto-electronic properties that make them promising candidates for many applications such as solar cells, light–emitting diodes, lasers, or biological imaging. One of the most interesting features is that the bandgap energy can be tuned by changing the particle size....

We report InP nanowire photodetectors with a single InAsP quantum dot as light absorbing element. With excitation above the InP band gap, the nanowire photodetectors are efficient (quantum efficiency of 4%). Under resonant excitation of the quantum dot, the photocurrent amplitude depends on the linear polarization direction of the incident light...

The photogeneration and mobility of charge carriers in organic thin films, including bulk heterojunctions (BHJs), have been studied with the time resolved microwave photo-conductance technique (TRMC). The TRMC technique allows the electrodeless measurement of the photoconductance with nanosecond time resolution. The research focuses on the way...

We report time-dependent photocurrent and transport measurements of sub-bandgap photoexcited carriers in nitrogen-rich (type Ib), single-crystal diamond. Transient carrier dynamics are characteristic of trapping conduction with long charge storage lifetimes of ? 3?hours. By measuring the photoexcited Hall effect, we confirm that the charge...

A combined photoconductivity, absorption, and thermoluminescence study was performed to understand the absence of luminescence from Ce3+ in LaAlO3:Ce3+. It is demonstrated that the absence of luminescence is the result of Ce3+ ionization from the 5d excited states, which are all located in the conduction band. Ce3+ ionization is accompanied by...

The conjugated polymer poly(3-hexylthiophene) is a promising candidate for applications in organic thin-film electronic and optoelectronic devices. This dissertation addresses fundamental issues regarding the photogeneration and recombination dynamics of charge carriers in this polymer. Measurements were carried out using an electrodeless, low...

Electron delocalization processes of optically excited states of Ce3+ impurities in Lu2SiO5 were investigated by means of a temperature and spectrally resolved photoconductivity study. By monitoring separately the strength of the photocurrent resulting from excitation into each of the Ce3+?5d absorption bands, over a broad temperature region,...
