Electron harvesting and dynamics at a metal-semiconductor interface

Brock Doiron
In this thesis, optical measurements are combined with theoretical modelling to evaluate the viability of metal-semiconductor interfaces for use in plasmonic applications. Firstly, the optical response of metals and metallic nanoparticles is presented with emphasis placed on relating the observable optical properties to the underlying electronic processes. This is then extended to describe metal-semiconductor heterojunctions in the context of light-induced electron transfer between the metal and the semiconductor. An overview of the experimental methods used...
