The new class of topological materials including Bi2Se3 offer opportunities to develop next generation electron devices that utilize spin generation and detection without ferromagnetism . However, the fate of the Bi2Se3 surface upon exposure to atmosphere remains unclear. In particular whilst the topology of Bi2Se3 guarantees the presence of a metallic surface, the topological properties of...

Solution-cast, organic field-effect transistors (OFET) have many advantages, such as rapid, large area fabrication, low production cost and flexible substrates making them ideal for specialized application such as flexible displays and radio frequency identification. The small molecule organic semiconductor (OSC) naphthalene diimide (NDI) provides a versatile framework with which to build...
70. Probing Film Morphology and Surface Microstructure of Semiconducting Polymers with GIWAXS and NEXAFS
Mr Masrur Morshed Nahid (Monash University)
In making organic electronics a reality, donor-acceptor based semiconducting polymers will play a pivotal role. The molecular packing, orientation and crystallinity of semiconducting polymer thin-films strongly influence the performance of organic electronic devices. Grazing Incidence Wide-Angle X-ray Scattering (GIWAXS) collected at the SAXS/WAXS beamline has been used to probe the molecular...

Vast quantities of bauxite ore, used for the production of alumina (Al2O3) via the Bayer process, contain appreciable concentrations of reactive silicates. Secondary precipitation of these silicates within Bayer plants results in deleterious scale formation consisting largely of aluminosilicate and titanate phases, with resulting losses of caustic soda and decreased heat transfer efficiency....
