    • Molecular interfaces for plasmonic hot electron photovoltaics 

      García de Arquer, Francisco Pelayo; Mihi, Agustín; Konstantatos, Gerasimos (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-01-02)
      Open Access
      The use of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) to improve and tailor the photovoltaic performance of plasmonic hot-electron Schottky solar cells is presented. SAMs allow the simultaneous control of open-circuit voltage, ...
    • Plasmonic hot-carrier optoelectronics 

      García de Arquer, Francisco Pelayo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-02-18)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      The detection of light is of central importance in both fundamental science and applied technology. Photodetectors, which aim at transducing optical stimulus into measurable electrical signals, are ubiquitous to modern ...
    • Plasmonically enhanced absorption in colloidal metal/semiconductor nanocomposites 

      García de Arquer, Francisco Pelayo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2010-09-09)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) are the route for low cost high eficiency photodetectors. Photoconductors are limited by the noise arising from high dark current densities, what is typically overcome reducing device's ...
