In this paper, we describe an all organic molecular memory device that combines the advantages of molecular and organic electronics. We accomplish this by combining C 60 molecules with poly(4-vinylphenol) (PVP) and co-dissolving them in iso-propanol. The current-voltage measurements show a large hysteresis in the blend devices, in contrast to pure PVP(More)
This paper represents the lowest growth temperature for silicon nano-wires (SiNWs) via a vapour-liquid-solid method, which has ever been reported in the literature. The nano-wires were grown using plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition technique at temperatures as low as 150°C using gallium as the catalyst. This study investigates the structure and the(More)
A major limiting factor in the performance of MIMO-CDMA systems is multiple access interference (MAI) which can reduce the system capacity as well as bit error rate (BER). Thus, statistical characterization of MAI is vital in analyzing the performance of such systems. Since, the statistical analysis of MAI in MIMO-CDMA is quite involved especially in the(More)
Alternative novel precursor chemistries for the vapor phase deposition of rare-earth (RE) oxide thin films were developed by synthesising the homoleptic guanidinate compounds tris(N,N'-diisopropyl-2-dimethylamidoguanidinato)-scandium(III) [Sc(DPDMG)(3)] (1), tris(N,N'-diisopropyl-2-dimethylamidoguanidinato)-erbium(III), [Er(DPDMG)(3)] (2) and(More)
A decision feedback equalizer (DFE) utilizes the previous detector's assessment to get rid of the inter-symbol interference (ISI) on the received symbols. It is well analyzed in the literature that the DFE performs better than the linear equalizer when the ISI is sever because of its inherent nonlinear nature. Equalization of wireless multiple-input(More)
As a high-quantum-efficiency photocatalyst, the serious photo-corrosion of silver phosphate (Ag3PO4), limits the practical applications in water purification and challenges us. Herein, Ag3PO4 is found to have a high stability under natural indoor weak light irradiation, suggesting that we can employ it by adopting a new application strategy. In our studies,(More)
Intensive research is currently underway to exploit the highly interesting properties of nano-bits (" nano-sized particles and molecules ") for optical, electronic and other applications. The basis of these unique properties is the small-size of these structures which result in quantum mechanical phenomena and interesting surface properties. The small(More)
The work described in this paper focuses on the utilisation of silicon nanowires as the information storage element in flash-type memory devices. Silicon nanostructures have attracted attention due to interesting electrical and optical properties, and their potential integration into electronic devices. A detailed investigation of the suitability of silicon(More)
