The B lymphocyte is the immune cell responsible
for the production of antibodies. It has receptor
molecules on its surface which bind to a molecule known
as an antigen. The antigen either stimulates the cell
to produce antibodies or tolerizes it so that it is
unable to produce antibodies.
Charge transport in a semiconductor structure with heterojunction is described by a multiscale partial differential equation model. This model can be used, e.g., for the design of more efficient solar cells. Phenomena at the heterojunction must be resolved at the angstrom scale while the size of the device is that...
The primary objective of this thesis is to explore new absorber and p-type window layer
materials for thin-film solar cell applications. A new thin-film electron beam deposition system has
been installed, is now operational, and has been used to deposit several types of solar cell absorber
layers. Material investigations include...
