    This paper is devoted to the development and numerical modeling of a field emission cathode for low power Hall thrusters (100-300 W). Generally, Hall thrusters use hollow cathodes, which require a relatively large mass flow rate of xenon-gas to operate. For lower emission currents the cathode...

    The carbon nanotube embodies a unique combination of properties which make it potentially an extraordinary field emission electron source. These properties include small tip radii (and small source size), high electrical conductivity, high melting point, and resistance to electromigration under...

    For a sharp tip emitter, due to the non-uniform emission feature and the electron beam expansion in the vacuum, it is difficult to precisely determine the average field enhancement factor βc as well as the effective emission area Seff for a single field emitter. In this paper, we conduct a...

    We report on the unusual behaviors of the optical properties for self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) by using photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. Distinctive double-emission QD peaks are observed in the PL spectra of the samples grown on high growth-temperature condition. From the...

    A microscopic theory is used to study the optical absoprtion and gain spectra of semiconductor quantum dots. The dephasing of a coherent excitation and line-shifts of the interband transitions due to carrier-carrier Coulomb interaction and carrier-phonon interaction are determined from a quantum...

    Under study are the electrical and optical properties of n-InGaAsSb epitaxial layers with composition close to InAs and lattice-matched with it, fabricated on InAs substrates by LPE from Te-containing melts. The layers are transparent in the 3-�m range owing to the Moss-Burstein effect. The...

    Large thermal mismatch between GaN surface and sapphire results in compressive stress in Gallium Nitride (GaN) layer which degrades the device performance. Nanostructuring the GaN can reduce this stress leading to reduction in Quantum Confined Stark Effect. Aligned GaN nanorods based nanodevices...
