Characterization of Nanostructured SemiconductorsUwe Happek
In collaboration with Prof. Stickney, Chemistry, our group is investigating semiconductor structures grown via electrochemical deposition onto gold substrates. Coating the substrate with a nano-structured polymer film will result in the growth of nanostructured semiconductor deposits, because electrodeposition will take place on the exposed gold substrate only.
The student will be introduced to a number of techniques to study the semiconductor structures, infrared spectroscopy, fluorescence, atomic force microscopy, and x-ray scattering.
