Systematic Investigation On The Growth Of One-Dimensional Wurtzite Nanostructures
MetadataShow full item record
A systematic investigation into the growth of one-dimensional nanostructures of select II-VI compounds with the wurtzite crystal structure. Two process parameters are systematically altered to observe how each affects deposition. The results of which give a further understanding into the formation of one nanostructure over another, as well as experimental parameters for optimizing the growth of particular CdSe nanomaterials. A statistical analysis is conducted on the experimental data to quantitatively determine the variability and robustness of the experimental setup and process. The information complied from this extensive study will yield a more complete understanding of the experimental setup and how improvements can be made to reduce variability, increase yield, and gain insight into the mechanisms controlling this class of materials.
