  • Kritzinger, Pieter Christo (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: During this research the possibility of using carbon nanostructures in sensors were investigated. Graphene and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are the nano- structures that were used in the developed sensors. ...
  • Buttner, Ulrich (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The nano-age is more about the mesoscopic phenomena, than those occurring at molecular and atomic level, which have been studied by chemists and physicists for more than a hundred years. Nanotechnology ...
  • Elkaseh, Akram Abdulsalam (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Planar weak link structures, such as micro-bridges, variable thickness bridges and nanobridges, have always attracted a lot of attention. Their potential to behave as real Josephson elements make them ...
  • Schenke, Carlo (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This report intends to show how able the Stellenbosch Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department’s micro fabrication laboratory is to manufacture nanomechanical switches and similar structures. ...
  • Botha, Alwyn Francois (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Organic semiconductors are used to manufacture thin film (smaller than 50nm) photovoltaic devices. Layer thicknesses are calibrated with the use of an AFM and QCM crystals. An in house method is prepared ...
  • Terblanche, Eugene (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
    Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) are the integration of nanotechnology and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The idea of this thesis is to give a basic preparation to approach NEMS, a subcategory of nanotechnology. ...
