      Du, Kang (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;9, Doctoral thesis, 2018)
      Abstract With the dramatic progress in nanotechnology, TiO2 nanomaterials have shown blooming applications in the field of energy and environment since the discovery of water photolysis on a TiO2 electrode in 1972. In ...
    • Hierarchical Black Silicon and Their Applications 

      Zhang, Zengxing (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;116, Doctoral thesis, 2022)
      Black silicon is expected to be a promising material for photoelectric, photothermic, photocatalytic, and microfluidic applications due to its remarkably anti-reflectivity, anti-bacterial effect, hydrophilicity, and ...
    • High-Q bulk acoustic wave resonators for RF filter applications 

      Nguyen, Ngoc Thi Bich (Doctoral dissertations at the University of South-Eastern Norway;24, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      This thesis proposes a novel design method for optimizing bulk acoustic wave (BAW) resonators, including film bulk acoustic resonators (FBAR) and solidly mounted res-onators (SMR). The purpose is to enhance their quality ...
