Title: Semiconductor Nanostructures By Scientific Design

Abstract

The goals and objectives of the present proposal are very much aligned with those of the previous award cycle. In the last three years we investigated semiconducting nanoparticles, nanowires and nanocomposites to understand and optimize their optical properties for solar applications and their heat transport properties for thermoelectric applications. We focused on understanding the role of surfaces and interfaces; our study included the investigation of surfactants, in particular of the role of van der Waals forces in binding surfactants to specific substrates. In addition to addressing specific nanoscience and materials science problems, we developed techniques and codes of general applicability. The investigations carried out in the past three years have resulted in 10 published papers in peer reviewed journals (including NL, ACS Nano and PRL) and in 3 papers submitted for publication in 2012 (now appeared).
