The role of defects in the nonlinear optical absorption behavior of carbon and ZnO nanostructures.


In bulk materials, defects are usually considered to be unwanted since deviations from perfect lattices may degrade device performance. Interestingly, the presence of defects throws open new possibilities in the case of nanostructures due to the properties related to their limited size scale. Defects and disorders which alter the electronic structure of… (More)
