The compounds, ([SnSe]1.15)1(VSe2)n with n = 1, 2, 3, and 4, were prepared using designed precursors in order to investigate the influence of the thickness of the VSe2 constituent on the charge density wave transition. The structure of each of the compounds was determined using X-ray diffraction and scanning transmission electron microscopy. The charge(More)
The structure of precursors is used to control the formation of six possible structural isomers that contain four structural units of PbSe and four structural units of NbSe2: [(PbSe)1.14]4[NbSe2]4, [(PbSe)1.14]3[NbSe2]3[(PbSe)1.14]1[NbSe2]1, [(PbSe)1.14]3[NbSe2]2[(PbSe)1.14]1[NbSe2]2, [(PbSe)1.14]2[NbSe2]3[(PbSe)1.14]2[NbSe2]1,(More)
Physical vapour deposition (PVD) is used to grow millimetre-long Bi2Te3 sub-micron belts catalysed by TiO2 nanoparticles. The catalytic efficiency of TiO2 nanoparticles for the nanostructure growth is compared with the catalyst-free growth employing scanning electron microscopy. The catalyst-coated and catalyst-free substrates are arranged side-by-side, and(More)
This thesis presents an investigation of graphene growth directly on insulating substrates. The graphene films are characterized using a variety of different techniques, including atomic force microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and grazing-incidence Xray diffraction. These allowed insight into the morphological, structural, and electrical properties of the(More)
Hybrid electronic heterostructure films of semi- and superconducting layers possess very different properties from their bulk counterparts. Here, we demonstrate superconductivity in ferecrystals: turbostratically disordered atomic-scale layered structures of single-, bi- and trilayers of NbSe2 separated by PbSe layers. The turbostratic (orientation)(More)
The presented thesis covers the development and investigation of novel integrated single photon sources and their application for quantum information schemes. Single photon generation was based on single defect centers in diamond nanocrystals. Such defect centers offer unique optical properties as they are room temperature stable, non-blinking, and do not(More)
In this article a microfabricated thermoelectric nanowire characterization platform to investigate the thermoelectric and structural properties of single nanowires is presented. By means of dielectrophoresis (DEP), a method to manipulate and orient nanowires in a controlled way to assemble them onto our measurement platform is introduced. The thermoelectric(More)
The efficient electrical generation of a spin accumulation inside a semiconductor (SC) utilizing the interface with a ferromagnetic metal (FM) is essential for the realization of many spintronic device concepts, in which the spin of the electron is exploited in addition to its charge for computational and memory purposes. At FM/n-type SC hybrid contacts,(More)
