A theoretical and experimental investigation on the effect that slow heating and cooling has on the inter-diffusion parameters of Cu/Ni thin films
(University of the Free State, 2010)
Thin film diffusion studies often involve a surface sensitive analysis technique combined with ion erosion to produce a depth profile of a sample. Such studies compare the depth profile of a reference sample to the depth ...
Luminescent properties of Y2SiO5:Ce thin films
(University of the Free State, 2010-05)
The luminescent properties of yttrium silicate doped with cerium (Y2SiO5:Ce) phosphor thin films were investigated. A detailed investigation (cathodoluminescence (CL), photoluminescence (PL) and Gaussian peak fits) was ...
Monte Carlo simulation and characterisation of phase formation in Pt-based alloy thin films
(University of the Free State, 2010-06)
English: From Icarus’ mythical flight to escape Crete to manned space flight to the moon, mankind’s dream to fly has impacted this world immensely. Technological advancements made in metallurgy and alloy development has ...
Characterization of SrAl₂O₄:Eu²⁺,Dy³⁺ nano thin films prepared by pulsed laser deposition
(University of the Free State, 2010-11)
English: Thin films of SrAl2O4:Eu2+,Dy3+ phosphor were deposited on silicon (Si (100)) substrates using a 248 nm KrF pulsed laser. Deposition parameters, namely; substrate temperature, pulse repetition rate, number of laser ...
