A sampling of topics includes: electron microscopy and X-ray, synthesis and fabrication of nanomaterials, charge carrier dynamics in nanomaterials, and applications of optical properties.
As a result, electrons become the majority charge carrier, meaning they are responsible for generating most of the current; this is known as n-type doping.
