Optical And Structural Investigations Of Defects In CdZnTe(Zn ~ 4%) Crystals
The CdTe family members (in particular CdZnTe) remain the substrate of choice for epitaxial growth of HgCdTe for use in high performance infrared (IR) detectors and focal plane arrays. This is the case despite advances in ...
Dynamics of Glass-Forming Liquids and Shear-Induced Grain Growth in Dense Colloidal Suspensions
The work presented in this doctoral thesis employs colloidal suspensions to explore key open problems in condensed matter physics. Colloidal suspensions, along with gels, polymers, emulsions and liquid crystals belong to ...
Confinement, Coarsening And Nonequilibrium Fluctuations In Glassy And Yielding Systems
One of the most important and interesting unsolved problems of science is the nature of glassy dynamics and the glass transition. It is quite an old problem, and starting from the early20th century there have been many ...
Magnetisation, Phases & Phase Transitions in Frustrated and Unfrustrated XY Model
Through our whole work we study the XY model with all its entirety, a particular spin model where spins are confined in a plane. We try to bring out a good understanding of this model with all different types of phases and ...
Mesophases Of Active Matter : Translational Order, Critical Rheology And Electrostatics
This thesis consists of research work in the broad area of soft condensed matter theory with a focus on active matter. The study of long wavelength, low frequency collective behavior of active particles (bacterial suspensions, ...
